Oh yes - I need a source for that.

Yes it would be nice of all those Super Juegos scans were cropped and uploaded to Retro CDN. No I'm not going to do it because it's far too much work.

That looks to be in outstandingly good condition considering how ancient the game is.

Sorry to double post, but I remember seeing here on Retro some Daytona USA test location cabinets and I can't seem to find them again? They might have been photos from a trade show...

I think some SEGA dev brought these up a few weeks ago on Twitter. Not sure if they're from the 90s, may be a recent commemorative thing.

Talking about pogs... a few days ago I was looking for some of these in the web, when I stumbled on these : Posted Image

In 2005 with the "Pokémon" fever "Matutano Unipessoal Lda." (Portugal) and its parent company ''Matutano Snack Ventures, S.A.'' (Spanish subsidiary of Frito Lay, who's a subsidiary of PepsiCo) released a collection of these pogs (called Nox) which came in bags of Cheetos, Ruffles, Doritos, etc... I remember these well... however I can't remember of the "Sonic X Nox" pogs... every photo in the web points me to Poland... so... was this collection released only in Poland (they came in bags of Cheetos too... which in the middle of a text written in Polish was the only word I could understand :) ... no offense...) ?

Shenmue's development history is weird.

https://retrocdn.net...73.pdf&page=132

Posted Image

Here's something nobody wrote down - "Shenmue Forest" (or maybe "Shenmue no Mori" (シェンムー の森) idk). Looks like they had the clay models of the characters' heads on display. And plastic trees.


Completely undocumented, and now really hard to find because Shenmue III exists (and it has forests in it).

I recently refound the images I was talking about here:

A few years ago, MAME/MESS reached the pinnacle of emulation - being able to emulate Windows well enough to run older versions of MAME. i.e. MAME emulating itself.

Coming soon: Sega Retro coverage of lesser versions of itself, as well as its neighbours.


Documenting documentation. But because the end goal is to do a better job at documenting Sega than all of these books combined, this should devolve into an exercise in pointing out how great we are in comparison one day.


Right now it's basically "Ken Horowitz of Sega-16 fame actually bothered to contact people, so his books are better than us". But we'll catch up one day!

Went and dug out a few more covers following this post, but the whole "Sega Press" thing isn't something I fully understand. There seems to be a DVD series called "Sega Press SP" that turns up around 2009-ish.

But of course, nothing's ever that simple:

So



There's E3 1995. There's a Sega keynote in it. It's... uh... well.


What is the game at 28:40? Tom Kalinske offers no more details other than it being an "unfinished game" (imagine pulling that sort of stunt today). It features pre-rendered footage of a car knocking down a colleseum. You can see it being reflected in the TV screen of the Riglordsaga footage at the 3h 25 min mark.


Other highlights include Nintendo droning on about video game piracy, and Sonya, Jax and Liu Kang turning up to fight each other for Mortal Kombat 3 (before Sonya gets bored and just walks away).
