On Facebook earlier somebody was asking me what happened to all the articles I wrote for the Revival Gamer website that now seems to be offline. They were asking about one article in particular - the story of the Atari Mega Drive so I thought I would post it on here for people who might not have read it before!  :16:

Just read this thread from the start. Great stuff! That tech demo is cool and the clip of Peter Griffin playing Moonwalker, lol. Also the Atari Tomahawk, WTF! I'm loving the insane Mega Drive knowledge.

One thing that does concern me however is the recommendation to buy some of the more obscure and rare games. They command some hefty prices and appear a little elitist. Are they actually any good or is it purely because they're rare? Basically, is it more style over substance (willy waving 'look what I've got' ammunition)?

In other words, they're out of my price range and I'm jealous  :21:

You can find reproductions of the rare games for a good price if you get carts only.  It is well worth it. :)
