Things I Hate: Flicky (Sega Genesis)

I only played this because it was put in with Sonic Mega Collection on Gamecube. It only relates to Sonic, because Flicky made a cameo in Sonic’s 3D Blast.

Even the weird cartoon villains are in this game. It’s not a bad game in its own right I suppose. I like my Tetris, butContinue reading “Things I Hate: Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine (Sega Genesis)”

For a monthly fee players could connect and play against each other using a dial-up connection. At the height of theContinue reading “Fun Fact: Online Gaming on SNES and Sega Genesis?”
