Just picked up a mega cd console

From my local auction..........£8.80 what a bargain! Its boxed but the box is quite tatty and I have just connected it to my asian mega drive and it seems to work fine. Can't decide whether to keep it or not as I can't really think of many games to get for it. I can only think of shining force cd as a must buy but are there any others?

It did come with a compilation cd with streets of rage,golden axe etc.

I'd say hang on to it. There's also Final Fight CD, Sonic CD, Keio Flying Squadron and Snatcher that are worth picking up for it. If you want Shining Force CD, though, you'd better find one of those memory cartridges for it- you can't save your game otherwise!

Is that the same as Dune on the ST/Amiga.

KEEP IT.

Although the mkII doesn't look as sexy as the original, it has a fantastic catalogue of games and some that are better than their megadrive counterparts.

You should try :

Final Fight CD
Sonic CD
Snatcher
Keio Flying Squadron
Chuck Rock 2
Jurassic Park
The Terminator
Robo Aleste
Advanced Dungeons and Dragons : Eye of the Beholder
Eternal Champions : Challenge From The Dark Side
Star Wars Chess
The Space Adventure
Batman Returns
Lords of Thunder
Dungeon Master
Nova Storm
Time Gal
Night Trap
Mortal Kombat
The Smurfs

It does also have a lot of cack and abysmal FMV games

If you can avoid the following, you'd be doing yourself a favour :

Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective Vol.1 & 2
Wolfchild
Sol Feace/Cobra Command
Road Avenger
Microcosm
Ground Zero Texas
Prize Fighter
Supreme Warrior
Kids On Site
The Animals
Yumeni Mystery Mansion
"This rod will be your doom" - Kilik

Thanks for that lorfarius I will have a look. I know the mega cd hasn't got the best reputation (it was a bit of a flop) but I might consider keeping it IF I can get the games cheap enough.

The 32XCD games are pure tripe, glad there are only 4 PAL games :lol:

I should really pick up more games for the MCD & 32X but I keep getting sidetracked.
