A cancelled prototype eh?

I used to work for a crown crop that relied heavily on a legacy software. The team responsible for developing and maintaining the software was mostly useless, only 20% of team was actually qualified and productive.

The guy that was basically carrying the team by himself made a modernized, working prototype of the software in the latest Microsoft MFC at the time, showed it to his boss, but was told to do it on his own time. He got fed up and left, and this mistake easily cost this crown corp millions of dollars hiring consultants (because employees are useless) trying to recreate what this one guy was trying to build. Unions are great, aren't they.

I wonder if something similar happened at SEGA.

You can get all the Sega Master Drive/Genesis collection games for $8.88.

It supports Steam's "remote play" so you can play Golden Axe 1-3, Streets of Rage 1-3, etc with a buddy. Only the host needs to own it. If you both buy it, then you can invite through the Sega Master Drive/Genesis collection interface.

Man that was hard to watch. It was like the 2 people playing weren't even really working as a team, and they kept running to the edge of the screen. You never do that cuz the edge is where the danger is!

Are you building an arcade or a pedestal? In the process of building a modular 4 player pedestal/gaming desk. Just need to pick up my screen (debating between a 32 QHD monitor or a 43" 4k tv) and will be ready to start assembling.

Altered beast was so cool when you changed into your animal form. Don't forget Shinobi and Outrun with the shaky wheel.
