Rag on the 32X all you want Homer, but at least Sega had the balls to take risks like that. It was the first 32 Bit console with blast processing. It really deserved to be more successful.
Xenocide
Only the Genesis could handle both Toejam AND Earl. The SNES' processing didn't blast, so it could barely handle half of Earl.

EvilHomer
Sorry Cena, I can't hear you over the sound of the Power Glove, Wiimote, and touchscreen controls. Something about balls and taking innovative risks?

Cena_mark
1. The Power Glove was made by Mattel not Nintendo.
2. The Wii wasn't a risk. Nintendo knew they stood to get trounced by Xbox and Playstation so they needed a cheesy gimmick.
3. Nintendo didn't even take a risk on using CDs. Nintendo nerds had to wait for the freakin' Gamecube to play on disk format. Think about that. The Gamecube came out in 2001 and the Sega CD came out in 1991. Sega was releasing games on disk format almost an entire decade before Nintendo. It certainly makes that Sega CD commercial ring true where that guy says, "What are you waiting for, Nintendo to make one?".

EvilHomer
Nintendo are perfectionists. They took risks and innovated constantly, but at the same time, didn't want to rush to put out sub-par products like Sega did. Consumers respected the wisdom and quality craftsmanship of Nintendo far more than the childish brashness and impudence of Sega, and that's why Nintendo continues to be the world's most dominant video-sports entertainment brand, while Sega is merely the butt of jokes on a dying mid-2000s video-sharing website.

Need I remind you what the gaming community currently thinks of Nintendo?

So some random ten year-old is too 3dgy for "having fun"? WOW, STOP THE RE-BLOGS, SHOCKING DEVELOPMENT IN THIS STORY !ONEONEONE

Big deal, the kid probably plays HexBox and visits #gamergate sites (which, I might add, is the present-day equivalent to the unwashed Sega community of the 1990s).

Cena_mark
The industry piggybacked on all of Sega's innovations. Sega used those technologies when they were risks, and then Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo got on them when they became sure shots.

EvilHomer
No, Nintendo et al got on them when they worked. If anything, it was even riskier, because by that point, Sega's crappy forays into technology they didn't understand had conditioned all video game consumers to assume that Nintendo's bold new technology would suck and fail.

Cena_mark
Face it, gaming would suck without Sega. Before the Genesis Nintendo had a near monopoly and fought dirty to keep it. They'd strong arm retailers into not selling any of it's competitors. Imagine a world where there wasn't a Sega to stand up to them and free the masses.

EvilHomer
And where was Sega's hands-free motion controller? Where was Sega's fully immersive virtual reality headset? These things ARE cutting-edge technology nowadays, all pioneered by Nintendo.

Don't see anyone using CDs anymore, do you?

EvilHomer
Nintendo had a natural monopoly, because - like Standard Oil and US Steel - they were the only company worth doing business with.

You sound like one of those dorks who uses DuckDuckGo and Ubuntu.

The Sega way must be a good business strategy, otherwise Sony and Microsoft wouldn't be releasing, or considering releasing, slightly upgraded consoles to maximize the cash, just like how Sega made a fortune off 32x, Sega CD, and all those lucrative micro-upgrades to a console they didn't have to replace.

Trillions will be made. Trillions.

For those too young to know. That music would have been considered extremely lame in the 90's also

Eternal Champions, I remember swapping my copy with another kid in school for Thunderforce IV, I got the sweeter end of that bargain.
RedRust
C'mon now, Eternal Champions was fantastic!

MacGyver Style Bomb
"And you can forget all that when the Saturn comes out later this year! No reason to bother with the CD and 32X, we'll be putting out a whole new platform in six months and... did Sony just price the PlayStation at 0.00 less than the Saturn?

Fuck."
Nominal
Not to mention how very noticeably shittier the Saturn's graphics were to the Playstation's.

Cena_mark
No they weren't. In fact the Saturn had two processors, the PS had just one.

Nominal
Twice the processors = twice the pixel jaggies

The truly most EXTREME relic of the 1990s was the dutch angle close-up.
TeenerTot
Heh. My boyfriend and I were just having a discussion about the cliche-ification of the once awesome Dutch Angle. Or rather, he was pretending to listen to me rant about it while watching TV.

so 90's
