(OT) Any Sega Genesis / Sonic the Hedgehog fans?

Post by aqua_tek » Thu May 24, 2007 12:50 am

I'm talking about the oldies. 1990's 2-D style. Sonic 1, 2, 3, & Knuckles, etc.

No pretty 3-D graphics. Just straight up 2-D fun, and engaging gameplay.

Not to mention the soundtracks were awesome. :P


I totally miss playing those games. Would pick em over any next-gen first person shooter any day.

Are there any Genesis emulators for Mac? :( I need a Sonic fix

Seriously, i think sega is what helped fuel my lust for all things electronic in music. When i was like 6 I used to make mixtapes off the BGM player in the options menu. This included such sega classics as sonic the hedgehog 1/2/3 & spinball/ Arrow Flash/ Contra: Hardcorps.

Did u ever hear the soundtrak 2 that game? Seriously Contra: Hardcorps is the proverbial goldmine for sid-style lofi sounds.

P.s. Sonic Spinball's music was really bueno as well. I remember I had an actual CD of the soundtrak I used 2 rock out 2. Kinda wish i still had a copy of it.

No doubt.

The music in those games was a huge part of the experience for me. And its taken me a while to realize it, but it has been quite influential in my music as well.

Anyways, I found this little gem of a site the other day. The soundtracks to virtually any game you can imagine 8O

Got me reminiscing about some simpler times in life :(

Sorry, can't beat Thunder Force. Well, the music. Sonic has some GREAT songs, but Technosoft took FM to a whole new level. They took it to 11. :twisted:

Mac Emulator

Post by draff » Fri May 25, 2007 1:59 am

How funny that you post this. I just happened to get a hankerin' for Shining Force I & II the other day. I found a perfect Mac Emulator called Genesis Plus. Google "Genesis Plus, Mac" and you will find it.

Enjoy...

It's been forver since I posted anything here, and this is the one that pulls me back. What a wierd world we live in...

Hey Draff, (or anyone!)
I love the genisis, or "megadrive" as it was called over here in Ireland....
In fact I have a couple still, and lots of lovely games which I pull out from the attic occasionally!
Would love to get an emulator...
Downloaded that emulator you talked about, but cant get it to work.
I seem to have downloaded the programe, and I can open it up, but cant get it to play any games... do I need to download games seperatly, cos I cant see any place to download em.????
Thanks peoples.
jesso

I just turned 30 and I haven't had as much fun with games in over 15 years as I have since I purchased a nintendo ds lite.

I actually had the first version of the nintendo ds but as soon as I played a lite version my friend had I immediately had to sell the old one. So much nicer...

Anyways, yes, ds pretty much rules. Mega Man, Mario, Sonic, Castlevania they are all there...
