Any one using a USB Sega Genesis controller? The Buffalo SNES controller is great and will be hard to match but I just feel wrong playing SEGA games with it :P. Any recommendations?

@mas, I'd recommend loading up Sega CD games in Fusion before you start spending a lot on the better games. It cost me $0 & took me 5 minutes or less to DL Snatcher and get it running on my first attempt. Then justify ponying up the cash if it's a game you really like. My Sega CD Collection wad mostly commons and it sold for a decent amount back in 2013. I'm scared to even look at Sega CD prices today. Just my 2 cents.

Also keep in mind Fusion can run real Sega CD games from your PC CD ROM tray if you want to save wear & tear on the new (to you) but fragile console while collecting actual games. You don't need a beefy computer. I have a 6 year old entry level Windows 7 machine that runs it great.

Ohh I won't buy anything unless it's dirt cheap and now I just do back ups. Got enough from Irish ninja for a while and I have like 6 actual sega cd games so I'm good.

Haven't played much but I've been making a lot of YM2612+SN76489 covers of music from other systems lately.

I got the Sonic Ultimate Genesis collection for PS3, does anyone know any other good Genesis-esque anthologies for console? Preferably PS3 though I do have 360 and Wii.

Here's a recent thread on that very topic.

What's the big deal with Kid Chameleon? I found the levels absolutely uninspiring and repetitive, the collectathon to be a bore, and the controls lackluster at best. The only I liked was the character design, but that's not enough.

It's mostly popular for it's length and insane amount of secrets as well as its variety of power ups. It was seen as a Mario competitor when it came out but by today's standards it is a fairly bland platformer that a lot of people are nostalgic about.

I wouldn't rank it among the greatest games on the console but it's not a bad game either. It'd be better with saves or a password system.

I'm glad I'm not alone. It gets such rave reviews, for second I thought that maybe I did indeed lack all heart.

I wouldn't say it gets rave reviews... it gets mediocre reviews from what I've seen, even the ones from back in the day (at least from magazines that weren't affiliated with Sega or the Genesis/MD).

It's certainly more original than many of the other Mario-knockoff mascot platformers.
