Jan 8 2008Genesis Portable Plays Some Old Games

gen-portable.jpg

The SEGA Mega Drive (Genesis) Portable is a little handheld system that plays some of your favorite Genesis games from yesteryear. It costs $40 and comes preloaded with 20 games including Kid Chameleon, Sonic and Knuckles, Alex Kidd, Ecco the Dolphin, Altered Beast, and Golden Axe. It features a backlight screen and comes with composite cables in case you want to play on a television. No word if there will be any expansions, but whatever. The reviews of the unit are pretty high, so I may drop two Hamiltons on it. What's that -- Hamilton is on the $10 and not the $20? Well who the hell is on the $20 then, is it Ford? Jackson, huh? Like Michael? Oh, of course, president Jackson. Samuel right?

It's all about the Hamiltons baby!

If I want my jollies on the run, I'll masterbate, thank you very much.
Buying this will help the shame I feel after the fact. Nothing like playing the games my 8 year old self did to get over that feeling of being a creep predator.

Ecco the Dolphin?! F*** yeah.

This is kind of like the Sega Nomad, except not as bulky. Man, that thing bombed, but I loved it so. For those who don't remember:
