You know I'm starting to admire how much leeway people have in retro (ugh) circles just because they're delivering or promising SHINY NEW THING. The guy's an egomaniacal douchebag who took a decade to release a barely above average genesis game and burned a lot of bridges, but come round the next fundraiser everyone is queuing up. Lmao.
From what I’m reading in this thread the fact that a major dick takes forever for his pyramid scheme to deliver a mediocre game IS the excitement.
It must be…the drama of it all, to borrow a saying. The thrill of maybe getting a game or maybe getting ripped off or maybe seeing the game delayed while the main programmer…takes his empties back to pay for carts…does time for hate speech convictions…whatever.
Why buy something extremely good from Nintendo for $60 when you can (maybe) have multiple copies of a pale approximation of a third tier Final Fight clone for multiple systems and multiple hundreds of dollars? And gross as hell cart design too! It’s the total package for total packages.
