Just watched this.  I did not know this extender existed.  Does anyone own it?  I think I agree with him, though, best to spend the money on a game than this piece of plastic.

When I bought my first Sega CD back in the early 90's it came with the extender, and since I had a model one Genesis I did use it. And yes there was a small plate that held them together, no duct tape required :21:

I did see some being sold with the metal plate on Ebay.  :)  I guess it prevents the use of ducktape!  LOL

Several pages back, we had some posts about the Genesis/Mega Drive Megatron transformer coming.  Well, it is now available and here is a video review of this Transformer!

I did not.  They are expensive!  As much as I like it, I'm not willing to pay $120 for it or for the PS1 Optimus Prime.

As nice as this is, I can't help being disappointed that the Megadrive isn't a working one. No technical reason why not. I suppose licence wrangling would be a problem.

Just a little pdf I was creating a couple of years ago just for fun not to sell was a game cover comparison for Megadrive games, planning to hit 100+ pages, only got to 23! So was going through some old bits and rather than delete it I would upload to give people something to look at for 10 mins, anyway you can view it here;

Thanks, yeah there are some funny looking covers in there! I think in the most i prefer more of the Japanese ones if they differ from the other regions.

I love the Sonic The Hedgehog games on the Sega Mega Drive they are just classics. My favourite Sonic game Is Sonic 3 And Knuckles :)

I love Jewel Master that game was very challenging and I love the soundtrack as well.



I remember playing Ballz that game was just so fun to play back In the day.



Another game I loved Is Zero Tolerance a brilliant game. It took me ages to get to the final boss at the end. I also loved that each level gives you the password. I remember always writing down the passwords on paper :) Love the cover art of the game as well.



Sparkster Is just a classic game to play as well. I played Sparkster a lot on the Sega Mega Drive and loved the soundtrack as well.



I love Eternal Champions as well that game was awesome to play back then :)



Those are some of my favourite Sega Mega Drive games :) And I love the Streets of Rage series as well.

Here is a nice read pertinent to this system:  The Top 10 Racing Games for SEGA Mega Drive (Sega Genesis).  Any other games you would have included?
