 Post subject: P is for Phantasy!
PostPosted: Tue Mar 27, '18, 3:22 am 
This popped up on my Twitter feed, retweeted from Sega: Sega Master System: a visual compendium. Some quick research shows they've already done books for the NES and the SNES. These days, I tend to prefer my books in digital form, but this might be worth getting the physical copy. Hopefully I'll remember to visit the Kickstarter in May.

I immediately looked for something from PS and found the P. With a quick glance, I also recognized Alex Kidd, Columns (the Master System version was the best!), and a couple images from Sonic the Hedgehog. I think the shirtless guy with the sword is from Golden Axe? (I only played on the Genesis.) I'm pretty sure I played the games with the motorcycle and the box, but their names escape me at the moment.

I've heard some news about this compendium ! Seems to be great :) And I've alredy seen the famous P "phor" Phantasy Star! ;)
Yes ! The shirtless guy with the sword is from Golden Axe ! :)
The motorcycle with H ? It's Hang-On ! :)
And the box I don't know ! Sure, it's for the letter X but... ?

The Master System is the one Sega console I have a really hard time getting into. The original Phantasy Star is nice (assuming you have access to FM Synth) - but the severe lack of 3rd party support cripples it. Now, we know that has a lot to do with the policies Nintendo had with a lot of 3rd party devs, but still, it's annoying.

I liked the Genesis, Saturn, and Dreamcast more, but I guess the MS has a few gems on it. The two Master System Aleste games were pretty solid if you like space shooters.

The original PS is sure to be nice but even without the FM synth ! I've heard the different tracks from the japanese versions and, even if they are great in a technical way, I'm too familiar with the musics without the FM chip ! :)

There are some good games for the Master System besides- Golvellius is a pretty strong Zelda-ish game, there's actually a good Ninja Gaiden game, Black Belt is a strong Kung Fu clone, and there's a startlingly faithful port of Ultima IV.
