He's a superhero, which in turn gets the underwear-on-the-outside tradition from color balance
In MM11's concept art, you can see ideas for his redesign that would've dropped the underwear but they kept it in the end, likely since it adds to his color palatte and keeps him from being completely cyan.

Never say never.

You seriously mean to tell me these dumb effers didn't think of putting CD-ROM images onto much-larger modern cartridges? MicroSD can hold a terabyte now, hundering facepalm.

>Master System Minis being viable
Master System was no NES, but it had a lot of cool shit.

See: SegaCD

If this company had competent people in charge, Genesis Mini would run everything from Master System 1 cards to Dreamcast. You could fit a shitload of Dreamcast games onto a Nintendo Switch cartridge and online multiplayer (was already on TV commercials in the 16-bit days, even in the west) is no longer an overwhelming challenge to put together. Dialup in the early 90s cost more than 3mB/s costs today, even if you ignore inflation.

Sega would come the fuck back if they did that. A freaking Raspberry Pi could probably run Dreamcast games, just use a better competitor and you're good to go.

I played this and the original C64 this year for the first time. Loved them both. Nice atmosphere, great music, fun combat, though admittedly I did rebind the buttons on a PS4 pad so it was a lot more fun to play than what I imagine the N64 controller could offer, but regardless, both are some of my favorite Castlevanias now.

Everyone I knew as a kid called levels boards, but I still have no idea why.

>> No.6059468

This. Basically until the NES there were joysticks and there were paddles and that was pretty much it. Cokecovision and Intellivisions controllers were actually confusing to people in that they were shaped like paddles but controlled like joysticks. Nintendo standardizing the cross d-pad was the point where random people instantly grasped what they were looking at and so there was need for a new term, "controller" or as my older son hilariously called them until he was about 4 and a half, 'trollers.

80's games were not all text. Early 80's games were graphically primitive like Atari 2600 and Intellivision. Nintendo and Sega made "realistic" graphics in the mid to late 80's. That said, the golden age of gaming was the 90's.

They did, you know.
