genesis had such a good sound chip
infinite zest
Yeah right? With chiptune bands being as big as they are right now (I think Crystal Castles are still big?) I'd like to hear more music that uses the Genesis soundchip in popular music

EvilHomer
I don't know if Crystal Castles were ever "big", but my findings suggest that chiptunes are still as popular as they ever were.

No offense, but the Genesis soundcard sucked nuts. It was far too tinny and harsh; everything sounded like it was being forced out of a blown speaker, installed inside a dusty fan casing, by sick cats. I've never understood why some people preferred it to the warm, pure tones of classic Nintendo, and the only explanation I can come up with is that some people just are nostalgic for Genesis.

Now Rhodes vs Wurlitzer, THAT'S a debate worth having! But I'm sorry to say, the Genesis soundcard was simply an inferior product.

EvilHomer
* the answer is Rhodes.

It's not a matter of how good your sound chip, or electric piano is, it's what you do with it.

I agree that what you do with your tools is ultimately the most important thing, but the fact remains that had that song used the SNES soundcard, it would have sounded much, much better.

You can make a Crockenspiel sound pretty sweet too, but that doesn't mean it's a good instrument.

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

most sega genesis games sound like mosquitos to me.

Genesis isn't the best chip for it (some arcade machines had amazing ones) but I do appreciate that its an FM Synth.

all i'm saying is this game and streets of rage... draw your own conclusions

infinite zest
I don't know how "big" Crystal Castles actually are, but if you hang out in a coffee shop in South East Portland for more than 45 minutes you're guaranteed to hear a CC song. That or Bon Iver. It's like the coffee shop's pandora knows it's in a coffee shop: "Van Halen Radio you say? Crystal Castles it is!"

EvilHomer
Really? Maybe it's a Portland thing, then? I have literally never heard Crystal Castles outside of my own MP3 playlists; I know people like them, but "internet" people rather than "real" people.

RedRust
It sounded crap back then, sounds golden now.

infinite zest
yeah they regularly sell out big venues when they tour here, so I've never seen them. There's a big noise scene here too and a lot of that involves chiptune bands now, most of which play smaller shows at video arcades. As much as I'm often offended by Portlandia for misrepresenting my hometown, they did get the fact that we never really grow up pretty spot on.

Spaceman Africa
If you didn't think Battletoads & Double Dragon on Genesis had the best title music, then just get out.

EvilHomer
You have VIDEO ARCADES?!?

infinite zest
Needs slap bass tag.

I remember hating this game.. I didn't have a Genesis but my friend did, but only one controller. So basically it was me watching him play for a good solid hour. Ironically I might watch this now, or at least skip to the end, but back when you're a kid, watching a slow moving slug-like creature move around on a rainy day is like waterboarding but worse.
Koda Maja
That's especially depressing because this game actually had a great two-player mode.

Also, tag added.

Cube
This was one of the most fun two player games, too. You missed out.

infinite zest
Yeah it looked like fun, but you know the rules. Friend's house, friend's video game. This is the same kid who invited me over so I could watch him play Final Fantasy 3 for most of the afternoon. :(

Gmork
Oh jesus, the "watch me play a single player video game and this constitutes as hanging out" kind of people. 5 for funky coop and the music machine you could play with two controllers.

infinite zest
To make matters worse, in college we had a house Dreamcast, and it was really easy to get those "every NES/Genesis rom" .isos off the internet, so I got the Genesis one, and what was one of the few games that didn't play right? #FML #YOLO!

infinite zest
snake rattle n' roll didn't work for the NES one either, but I was already rockin' that shit when I was a kid.

Sanest Man Alive
This game was my first Roguelike and will ever hold a place in my heart. It's kind of a shame the sequel was just another 90's platformer in an ocean of attitude-laden rodents. It wasn't really bad, it just lost a lot of the weirdness that made the first one so charming (despite taking place on TJ and E's homeworld), but at least the music was still good.
