Console Shock EP 53 Mega CD

Retro and current gen gaming chat, with Trev and Stu! Its the Console Shockcast!

In another Sega special, we talk about a very underrated add-on that has been unfairly tarred with the same brush as its 32X brother, the Sega Mega CD!

We try to change the perception of this misunderstood device:

– The history of the Mega CD

– How the PC Engine CD ROM prompted Sega to produce their own CD add-on.

– The extra graphics tricks the Mega CD adds to the Mega Drive.

– The large amount of disappointing cartridge ports.

– All of the quirky hardware variations of the Mega-CD.

– Mega-CD hidden gems – How could anyone afford the £270 for the system at launch?

– Could Sega have handled the Mega-CD better? – FMV games, were they crap?

– Legendary Mega-CD game “Snatcher”!

Intro/Outro Music – Hill Top Zone Act 1 – Sonic 2 HD – PC – Composer(s): Toni Leys (Original Mega Drive Version – Masato Nakamura)
