No Magical Chase! Hard pass.

I don't know. Appare! Gateball is a pretty big selling point for me. Where else can you play video game croquet? Don't even try to tell me that croquet isn't the single greatest lawn game ever created. I don't have my own croquet set for nothing.

I guess I'd agree about Super Darius, but only because of the version of Darius that Sega is including with the Genesis Mini. If not for that, I'd personally say Darius Plus has a bit more value than Darius II, since the latter has a number of other ports around, and often better ones to boot.

Often better ones to boot? Yeah, if you waited for the Saturn to come out.

I'd also go with the Genesis version over it. More sensible (for the series) soundtrack, and doesn't have the screen scrolling.

I wonder how long it will take hackers to crack the TG16 Mini. If it's done by the time I get around to getting mine, I'll just go with the TG16 and add the regional exclusive games. I have neither the cash nor the space to really have thirty-eight different mini consoles.

I really feel like that should be on the US TG16 Mini just out of principle.

They probably don’t want to spot for the Wataru license

And it's not a very good game anyhow, so I'm okay with its absence in favor of other things being on there.
Atlantis no Nazo is a TERRIBLE game and I don't care what nostalgia it may have, it is wasting its space on the Famicom Mini by being there instead of something else :lol:

And the preorders are finally up on Amazon. I'm just going to wait until we get closer to release, just in case. I don't have $100 sitting around to buy something that won't actually see light of day until March.

I'm probably going to regret this later, but I'm seriously considering ditching all my original consoles to replace them with mini consoles. I can feel my future self shouting at me right now.
