I'm right there with you on this (only I forgot about it until you posted :lol: :cry: ). I think I ordered the $99 version (who knows when), but whatever at this point. I still hope it comes through one day, but if not (or until then), WaterMelon games has a pretty bad mark on their record.
But it will be a very pleasant surprise if it does show up in my mail box one day.

Started a new game in Shining Force 2 earlier in the year, put it down for a few months, but got back into it last week. Haven't completed this game since the early 2000's, and really enjoying it. I'm pretty far into the game, just completed the Mitula's Sanctuary battle, the Zalbard battle, and the battle in the town of Pacalon.

My only issues with this playthrough so far is that I let Kiwi fall behind level wise, he's way too weak to catch up, so I've swapped him out for Rhode. Also, I guess I didn't save the falling bird in Bedoe earlier in the game, so I missed out on getting Skreech.

Looking forward to putting a few more hours into this game next weekend.

And then, out of no where, they announce it's coming out in a few weeks! The launch event is happening at the end of October.

Where the hell did that come from!?

I think there were a couple threads about it (one in Sega-16 maybe?, the other a facebook feed?, not sure as my cell online surfing habits are erratic), keeping the hope alive.

Anyways, this is good news, I have a pre-order for this from a console life cycle ago. Anticipating getting my copy.

I'm not sure if I'll do any more orders from Watermelon though. I'm a patient guy, but the development times are beyond unreasonable for most.

I certainly won't. I feel I'm done with them.

I hold no ill will towards Watermelon, but I find - whether there are reasons for it or not - the delays are too much and the communication between them and backers is atrocious and unacceptable. I also pre-ordered Paprium years and years ago and there's been, what? Like 4 updates in that time? One of which was mere weeks before the game was scheduled for release to say 'oh actually, the project is screwed for a while because Paypal seized all our funds woops'. I understand they're a small company and no doubt incredibly busy making the game, but a small update every couple of months, even if just to say 'development is still going slow and steady, sorry for the delays, we haven't forgotten you' would go a long way.

I'm on a strange kick with the Genesis F1 racing games. I've mainly been playing the Super Monaco GP games which are fantastic. The championship modes are so fun. Save states replacing the giant passwords of the first game also do a lot to make the game more accessible. I'm not really a big racing game fan and I suck at them but there's so many cool arcade-style racers on the Genesis that I really enjoy.

It lead me to toying around with Domark's "Formula One" which I had never played before and while I don't like it as much as the previously mentioned duology it's pretty cool. It's got some simple polygon graphics for stuff along the track and it moves at a pretty blazing fast speed for a game from that time that utilizes polygons (it even has a "turbo mode" that shrinks down the sprites to the two-player version of the game to increase frame rate though I find the normal mode plenty satisfactory). Pretty neat stuff. The physics are a little loony but it's a racing game from 1993, what do you want?

Neat! I should try those games out.

The Super Monaco GP games are absolute classics if you like 16-bit racing games. The World Championship mode of the first game has a crazy plot twist at the end of the first season where most racing games would normally end. Basically you challenge rivals and if you beat them in two consecutive races you can take a job with their team and get their car and you use this to eventually get into the best car which blows your competition of the water. This sort of makes the difficulty front loaded but it's really satisfying when you're in the Firenze of Madonna cars (fake names for Ferrari and McLaren respectively).

Ayrton Senna's Super Monaco GP II is basically the same game with a bit more polish. Unlike most celebrity endorsed games where a name is just slapped on a product, Senna himself who was a three-time F1 World Champion and six-time winner at the Monaco Grand Prix before his untimely demise gave his input on some tweaks to the car handling and the track design and supplied three of his own track designs for the game. It makes the game an interesting historical footnote especially in parts of the world where F1 was a bigger deal and especially Brazil where Senna was from. It was also made because TecToy approached Sega of Japan with the idea which is neat.

I tend to see mixed opinions on which one people like more as they're largely the same game with a few changes. I really like the music and the World Championship of the first game but you can't go wrong with either and the second game has an interesting tale behind it especially for F1 fans.
