Reverse-Engineered Star Fox Running on Mega Drive

Friday, March 8th, 2013

SNES game Star Fox has been reverse-engineered to run on a Mega Drive by developer Stef at the romhacking.net forums.

It’s certainly very bare bones at this point, running at an incredibly low framerate with sound missing but it’s still an incredible acheivement. If you’d like to try it yourself you can download the work-in-progress rom here.

See below for some gameplay footage:

RetroN Console Allows You to Play Mega Drive Games (and More) Through HDMI

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

How’s this for left-field? The recently announced RetroN 4 console is a hybrid console that allows you to play NES, SNES, Mega Drive and Gameboy Advance cartridges on one system. The console is also equipped with a HDMI output and supports both NTSC and PAL cartridges.

The console’s developer Hyperkin is expected to make a full announcement on March 23rd at the Midwest Gaming Classic trade show in Wisconsin.

The developer’s previous console (the RetroN 3) is pictured above and already available. This console allows you to play NES, SNES and Mega Drive cartridges, but only offers S-video or composite video output.

SEGA Tunes: DJ Yoda feat. Scroobius Pip – SEGA RIP

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

Today’s SEGA Tunes feature is a hip-hop song by DJ Yoda featuring Scroobius Pip and is entirely about the Mega Drive/SNES console war. The song makes some humorous references to Sonic “whoring himself on Mario Olympics” and SEGA fans revolting against them because of Ecco the Dolphin. The song obviously takes some historical liberties in favour of a good rhyme, but it’s still an entertaining listen.

Be warned! This song does contain bad language and references to the “SEGA Genesis” despite both artists being from the UK where the console was called the SEGA Mega Drive:
