Kinda thinking that I should have held off on the OSSC now, the Analogue SG looks awesome.

That's awesome, I just tested Sonic 3 and it ran great. It's good to know I have an emulator focused on hardware accuracy, but the Retroarch shaders are just too nice for me to switch. I like the chunky composite and s-video settings that it can mimic.

AU$140 for the Mini at EB. A bit pricey.

Feels like a bit of a mixed bag so far... am I the only person who thinks that Comix Zone is overrated?

Yeah Comix Zone isn't something I really care about.

I doubt our version will come with Wrestleball/Powerball. It's weird that it's coming out on the Japanese one.

Comix Zone was really impressive at the time, but it's an okay beat 'em up. It was always a little too hard for me, and I didn't like the item management.

There's a few odd choices and I understand why Altered Beast and Space Harrier are on there, but I wouldn't exactly recommend them to anyone.

Comix Zone was a great concept wrapped up in a bad game. I wanted to love that game so much but could never bring myself to play past the first 2 stages.

Comix Zone was not a bad game, it was... a good game with a few rough edges.

World of illusion is a nice little bonus, shame that we couldn't get castle of illusion as well.

Yes that would have been good. Maybe they didn't add it due to the remake.
