what other machines does the megadrive pad work with?

As someone about who grew up on the nes i just can't use joysticks, everything about them just irritates me even more then having to use the keyboard, so imprecise and just plain counter intuitive after being spoilt by console pads over the years. I already have an amiga 1200 (which annoyingly doesn...

lol, i kind of want it now but the whole having to get an imported or chipped machine added to the price of the actual game means its just another one of those post lottery win purchases.

theres a lot of extra info if you follow the links on that page... I was just being a bit lazy as my pc tends to crash when i open a few windows at once. There were a few other bits and bobs like photos of different podium scenes (a caped koopa troopa from mario world flies across the screen if you ...

yeah the msx feature was fantastic. Nice to have some of the mystery surrounding the machine dispelled. If I had infinite money I'd be buying one of the nice new ones they've brought out abroad

Brilliant issue! best in ages! Love the mario kart and r-type bits! Super punch out! Robotron (never played it but its the prequel to smash tv and the n64 robotron so it's awesome!) . Best issues in ages, and brilliant cover after lots of S*** covers that made me embarrassed to leave the mag lying a...

I have to say I was dreading this months issue as soon as I saw the words "text adventure" on the front cover and the acorn electic is too old for me to care about but it was pulled back for me by the console based feautures on panzer dragoon and avp and other nice articles. so I suppose it was okay...

I liked them all (bar 3 for some reason) The mutli player ones are ok but are not rly Phantasy star . Yeah phantasy 3 is gash! It was made by a different team to the other ones. I love the way that there's a flashback to ps1 & ps2 in ps4 but ps3 is quite rightly ignored! It's a trilogy -ignore ps3 ...

The one hit one kill art is something lost in most of the games today. Agreed. There's nothing like knowing you've got baddies coming at you from all angles and just one wrong move is enough to pop your clogs. I had a go on the DS version of New Zealand Story the other day and was shocked to find T...

joysticks are gash, and I'm eternally grateful to sega and nintendo for making joypads standard issue. But I do have a nice quickshot I use as a firing controller with the megadrive version of smash tv that needs two controllers to work like the arcade controls.

I was a bit wary about this months cover (the thought "what the **** is ant attack" went thru my head), but the actual mag was saved for me by awesomeness like the game and watch feature', marble madness 2 and some other neat stuff.
