That’s interesting! There are so many race car games on any given platform that it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle. Now I’m going to make a concentrated effort to play Super Monaco GP.

After 32 grueling races and a lot of practice and memorization I've won the second season and beaten Super Monaco GP, even though I crashed out both times I had to race in the Monaco GP itself, lol.

Suck it G. Ceara!

Haven't done too much retro gaming lately, but I went through Toejam and Earl recently with a buddy. Love that game. Been considering picking up the new genesis collection for my Switch.

It's a turn based strategy from Masaya, the same people who made the Assault Suits and Langrisser games. If you like the old Super Robot Wars games it plays similarly to those but with an original cast of characters and mechs instead of licensed properties. Never got to play it in English so I can't speak to the story, but the gameplay seemed pretty solid.

I just got myself a Japanese Mega Drive, which I'm excited about. So far my only game is "Hono no Tokyuji: Dodge Danpei" which is a dodgeball game with some very fun anime aesthetics. Since I'm going to Japan in March, I wanted to be able to load up on games and now have to worry about transporting the console itself overseas.

I had been slacking with my Genesis gaming until pretty recently. About six or seven years ago, I cobbled together a component video setup for my Genesis (SCART to Component video, but with Sega CD for audio) but it was so unwieldy that I didn't like hooking it up in my apartment and I don't have space to leave it hooked up all the time. Another complication was my tendency to have the 32X hooked into it, but it's a little unreliable and so it took some finagling in order to get working. Just another thing that diminishes my motivation to play it.
So I recently got some component cables from HD Retrovision and it makes it SO MUCH EASIER to set up that I've been playing a lot more. Really a great console that I love deeply. And the fact that my new cables can be used with the Sega Master System and Saturn with adapters are a tremendous bonus.

I've always kind of wondered about this game. Is it anything like the Kunio-kun dodge ball games? Is it any good?

Curious why you decided to get a JP Mega Drive before going to Japan, though. I'll also be interested to see what you pick up. Be prepared for some eye-popping prices on Mega Drive games, if you're planning on doing any shopping in Akihabara. You'll want to look for Mandarake, Surugaya, and Hard-Off stores, in general. I really liked Trader, though. If you go to Super Potato at all, make sure it's the one in Ikebukuro (if it's even still there). The one in Akihabara is a waste of time. Of course, I'm just assuming that you're going to Tokyo. Recycle shops also sometimes (rarely) had interesting stuff in them, if you stumble across any.

I haven't played that much of the game and embarassingly have not yet won a match but it's fun! I've never played another dodgeball game, so I can't compare it to Kunio-kun, but I'd recommend giving it a chance. Sports games in general aren't my forte, but this one really seems like a gem.

I wanted to get the Mega Drive before my trip for two reasons: 1) I was already using a proxy service for something else (a laserdisc set I had my eye on for a while) and 2) I'm PRETTY SURE I'm going to completely fill up my suitcase with junk I'll be buying while I'm over there (I have a lengthy list). This way I'll have peace of mind that I will have a working Mega Drive waiting for me at home and I can just concentrate on game-hunting! UNFORTUNATELY the MD seems to be having some trouble outputting RGB (the picture starts fine and then disappears after a few seconds) and so my component cables aren't working with it. It's probably just a matter of reflowing solder on the motherboard, but until I work up the nerve to try it I'll be satisfied with composite video.

I appreciate the tips! I've already been advised to go to Hard Off and to pretend that Super Potato is a museum with nothing for sale.

Has anyone ever had a cartridge just not work no matter what you do? I tried cleaning the contacts with a cotton bud and alcohol, but no luck :(

It's a second hand boxed copy of Gain Ground I picked up. My Mega Drive is clean and I rarely have issues playing any game. I'm annoyed, because in nearly 30 years of gaming I don't think I've ever come across a cartridge that won't work. Guess I'll ask for my money back and will pick up another copy some time.
