I just want to say, I really admire the effort y'all have to put in to document this stuff. Almost all of it is ephemeral, either by design (because that's how capitalism tends to work) or simply because of consumers...consuming things, as they do; nobody thinks that some random VCD or magazine or even cheap bootleg video game is worth documenting, but here you are, aiming to document...all of it. Despite stuff like information rot, here you are. It's genuinely admirable.

What's it got to do with Sega? Well... they're both "things".

The cassette is about the three consecutive championships won by German ice hockey team Düsseldorfer EG (Düsseldorfer Eislauf-Gemeinschaft) https://en.wikipedia...BCsseldorfer_EG , which culminated in the 92/93 season... their coach at the time was Hans Zach https://en.wikipedia.../wiki/Hans_Zach, a German ice hockey player and coach, member of the German Ice Hockey Hall of Fame... this is something ... though there's no clue about Sega's involvement... my bet is ... it's probably something like this VHS cassette here... https://segaretro.or..._08.pdf&page=61 ...

Do they have SEGA's endorsement or do they just don't know that using their logos in commercial products is illegal?

An exceedingly rare set of Top Trumps sponsored by Football Manager exists. I hear there's 30 cards in a pack - good luck getting them scanned.

Quiz Time! While clearing out some old cassette tapes I had when I was a child, I found a mysterious recording which sounds like the Megadrive sound chip, but I don't recognise the song at all. I'm pretty sure it's not a Sonic track or I'd recognise it, so I was wondering if the Retro hivemind might be able solve it for me. Thanks in advance!

Hm, this one might be worthy of a topic of its own. It does sound vaguely familiar, the best I can come up with is that it reminds me of music from the earlier days of the console. Part of me wants to say it's from Golden Axe, but I can't match it to any songs I remember from the game. My next thought was Revenge of Shinobi, but it's the same situation there where I can't match it to a song from memory.

I've also trying to guess where it might come from. It seems to sound more similar to GEMS driver to me, so maybe some Electronic Arts published game might be it. I've checked those games, it would be cool if you published your checklist too if you try to guess it.

Thanks, if this keeps getting interest I'll make a dedicated topic! I know I never had Golden Axe or Shinobi though.

That's an interesting insight. I've tried to compile a list of the game which I recall having or borrowing when I was a child in an attempt to narrow it down, however I may have missed or forgotten something so it may not be exhaustive. Some of these are EA published though so I might try them next.

Spoiler


Thanks for looking!
