I never thought Altered Beast looked Arcade in quality.  And seeing it in motion sucked away any interest I had in the Genesis.  The TG16 had all these colorful games and when Bonk's Adventure came out I knew I had to own that system.  Of course as a "gamer" that had to play everything, eventually I owned both and had plenty of fun with both systems.

Altered Beast on the Sega Genesis looks worlds better than the PC Engine version, and it does look fairly close to the arcade version. It's not flawless, but it's certainly a solid arcade port by the standards of the time.

Has anyone's wired Hori controller shipped? It's frustrating that the console will be arriving here tomorrow but my second controller won't.

Have any of you ever bought one of these just because it's on sale? I've been waiting for a sale for the ones I really wanted but it's never happened. The Street Fighter one, however, is in stock and heavily discounted at the store, but I don't think I'd ever play it much. :rofl:

That's why I bought Rampage and Asteroids - $156 and $75 each.

What's going on with the riser prices at Walmarts? At Brickseek, they all show as $44.88 in the Houston area, but I know that other people have been finding them for clearance prices elsewhere in the country.

 

Also, anybody know of a Houston store with Final Fight at clearance prices?
