They also gave the Sega CD a 8/9/9/9 like four months before it actually came out because CD'S PACKED FULL OF FMVS WILL REVOLUTIONIZE GAMING. The only games they had actually reviewed were Sewer Shark (7/9/6/6) and Night Trap (5/8/6/5) and the reviews complained about how bad the FMV was and how they were barely games. :lol

Well, unlike the Sega CD, the Sega 32X really pumps up the Genesis sounds and graphics levels. The first few releases are a real eye catchers and sure to make a big splash.

I'm one of the saps that bought the 32X on release.  Star Wars Arcade and Doom were actually "wow" games and some of the later releases like Virtua Fighter and Racing were really great for the time.  It also made the FMV CD games a lot better.  The video was a clearer and the window was bigger.  I liked Corpse Killer and Supreme Warrior quite a bit.  Slam City with Scottie Pippen not so much.

Another EVE event story: The Year-Long, Undercover Plot To Blow Up EVE Online's Most Notorious Space Station
Quote
In theory, anything can happen in EVE Online, but some things are considered impossible. Well, last month, one of the “impossible” things happened: The destruction of the game’s first-ever Keepstar battlestation, which was kept in a wormhole. Of course, it took 11 months of meticulous planning.

Ever since the massive Keepstars, the largest structures that can be created by EVE players, were put into the game in 2016, they have lost the sense of perceived invulnerability that they once enjoyed. Over the two years, more than 30 of the extremely expensive structures have been destroyed. But the first-ever Keepstar endured, thanks to its location: Deep in the heart of a wormhole, the most inhospitable space that EVE Online has to offer.

My brother has that book. It has some interesting insight.

Amy Henigs Uncharted 4 shenigans are an amazing read.
Why Sony didn't can her earlier boggles the mind. Even more crazy that EA put her in charge of another project as they must've been aware of that mess.

The 32X definitely had some really good games and YES STRO THAT DOES INCLUDE SPACE HARRIER and Afterburner.
:bolo 

Virtua Fighter was a good port and more 'stable' than the first Saturn version, but it took too damn long to come out.  The Saturn was already been out in 'Murica for a few months by the time it finally released.

While it was originally reported that Crackdown 3 would feature four-player co-op support in its single-player campaign, this has been revised. The game will now support two-player co-op. The reason for this, we were told by Microsoft, is that the fantasy of Crackdown is to feel like you are ‘the most powerful person in the world’ and that the more players it pumped into the experience the more diluted that power fantasy became. Instead, the co-op count has been reduced to two and the game has been heavily optimised with that in mind.

Watching some of those 32x videos... that thing really is not that much better than an SNES except on the 3D games... which at the time there weren’t really that many of.

It’s just hard to see the value for the time. Especially because $150 was lot of money in 1995 or whenever it released.

They did! It was called the virtua something or another, I think.

Virtua racing used it... and maybe one other game.

Technically it was quite a bit better than the super fx chip.

Sega Virtua Processor.  They were going to have it released separately as a lock-on ala Sonic and Knuckles but it was too expensive to make and was dropped.  The project eventually became the 32X IIRC.

MK2 32X is almost a perfect port, save for the smaller sprites. More sound effects than the saturn ports and the snes version, the speed is arcade perfect (snes feels slower). The AI is exactly like the ai in the arcade version, which can be pretty problematic. It will fuck you shit up constantly if you are not used to it.

But when it comes to gameplay, it's the best. I spent years of my teenage years on the snes port, and it was quite a shock to admit that the 32x was simply better.

Saturn version has the super big characters like the original arcade, but the loading times when performing a fatality are annoying. There are also strange issues like character names not being called, stuff like that. PSX has super weird loading issues where the game fully stops moving while it loads stuff. I need to find a copy to play on the real hardware but youtube vids are pretty bad.
