The First SEGA Genesis Mix was a 5 Game series with a bit of a random selection: X-Men 2: Clone Wars, Garfield: Caught in The Act, Super Street Fighter II, Rock ‘N’ Roll Racing and Greendog
X-Men 2 Clone Wars (Action) – I don’t remember ever playing this game but the first level in particular looks very familiar. I have seen this on people’s Top 10 or Top 25 lists for SEGA Genesis games, and after playing it, that doesn’t surprise me. The controls were very responsive and there was some cool level design and enemy patterns. I was pretty impressed with the game even if I got frustrated and got a Game Over. I made it up to Level 3-4 and died at the boss fight against Exodus.
Garfield: Caught in The Act (Platformer) – This game looks fun, and by watching the demo it seems like there are some cool levels to play, but this game is HARD. And it wasn’t even a fun/challenging type of hard, it was very CHEAP. I played this with my wife and we made it up to the boss of the first level, but couldn’t figure out if we were actually damaging it or not. It was very frustrating and seemed to be very unforgiving and cheap. I was pretty frustrated with it. I’m going to look into seeing if I was doing something wrong, or if this game is actually that cheap.
Super Street Fighter II (Fighter) – I use to love the Street Fighter II series, but Read the rest of this entry
This is the first season of Retro Football on TheGamerPad and GSFN. The first few weeks started off as a 2 game special. The first game would be a retro game, while the second game would be played in Madden 17 on PS4 with special goals and custom rules. The added Madden 17 games seemed unnecessary and probably better suited for another series.
The match-ups are based on actual match-ups in the NFL 2016 Season during that week. The goal is to play with every team at least once in the season, but sometimes that might not be possible and sometimes there might be duplicates.
I haven’t played these retro games in years, if at all, so I usually fight a learning curve in the first half that I try to overcome in the second half. Sometimes I get blown out, sometimes I make an interesting comeback.
