Console Turf Wars

Genki Greetings. It been a while old beans. 
The Sakura Wars Dreamcast demonstrates Sega's love of its fans by inking its delightful design. Last Blade 2, Capcom vs SNK, Street Fighter and Virtua Cop 2 demonstrate its dream architecture. 

Fantasy Zone for the back in stock Mark 3, Tatsujin & Darius 2 for the Mega Drive, Silky Lip & Devastator for the Mega CD and Vampire Savior on the Saturn risk turning this into a console wars skirmish from the 90's. 

The Nintendo formats gather the gang with Ninja Spirit and Splatterhouse on the Famicom, Super Smash Bros on the N64 backed up by the celebrity triple-A releases of F Zero X, Mario Kart 64, Super Mario 64 and Wave Race 64 on cut-price cart only and the GameCube dark horses of Metroid Prime, Gotcha Force and Chibi Robot. 

Strong showings from the understated PC Engine with Gunhed, Tales from the Monster Patch, Mr. Heli and those Burning Angels back in town. Dodonpachi on the PS2 is a pixel perfect version. 

Happy Genki gaming.
