As you may have noticed by now, I’m something of a Sega CD fanatic.  I got the Sega Genesis, CD, 32X, & Sega Nomad in one shot when I was 13 years old.  Sega CD amazed me from the very beginning.  I used to play Sewer Shark on Sega CD for hours and hours.  Eventually the disc would start skipping and the game would freeze.  I noticed that the AC adapter was really really hot so I always thought that was the cause of the problem.  I would get a whole bunch of ice cubes in a bag and put it on top of the adapter and point all the fans at it that I could.  Of course my tiny teenage mind hadn’t realized that it was the scratched up CD itself that ended my play time :(

Anyway, there is a purpose to my ranting.  Long long long after I traded my Sega CD in for a Nintendo 64 (as in a 2 years ago) I heard of a little game called Snatcher for the Sega CD.  I heard it was a crazy comic book style game produced by Hideo Kojima of Metal Gear Solid game.  Genuinely I picked up a copy (and a factory sealed Genesis and Sega Cd to play it on) and I was totally blown away.  For the first time I just got back into playing it and I gotta say, “WOW!”  this game is tons of fun, well made, well written and pretty darn cool even by today’s standards.  It would be cool to see a game like this on a next Gen system.  I can only imagine what Kojima could come up with.  I personally would LOVE a sequel to Snatcher on the PS3.  Hideo DO YOU HEAR ME?!?!  PLEASE make a sequel to SNATCHER!!!

I’ve got a headache, my body is weak and noodley, and I can’t stomach any solids.  Today was made for gaming.  So far I beat Sewer Shark and Willy Beamish on the Sega CDI ate about a million fruits with yoshi in Super Mario World for the SNES and saved the world twice with TurboGrafix-16’s very own R-Type.

Currently, I’ve got a huge bowl seated happily before me, replete with cap’n crunch squares in all their rooftop-of-your-mouth-cutting goodness and the wife is whipping up a batch of Pillsbury Grands Cinnamon Buns

Jealous?  You should be.  As I sink my teeth into some cinnominy goodness I’m setting down to play some Kung Fu for the NES.  Drop me a line if ya want folks.  I’ll be in alllllll day ;)
