Good review and glad to see the Sega Master System still being supported with such an adaptor.

Yeah, never really purchased many adapters like that as i have the real hardware.. might be an idea for me to pick them up anyway.

I picked up one of these because it was much easier to find than the original system changer.  I guess they are not as common in the US.  Never mind the prices on ebay were absurd when I checked.

The only drawback is the card slot but still a must have item if you do not have an SMS or the SMS adaptor.

The book "The Secret History of the Sega Genesis" can now be purchased, it was originally Kickstarter only.  I'm not big on Kickstarter myself, but now I just may have to pick this up.  http://kotaku.com/you-can-buy-the-secret-history-of-the-sega-genesis-1619144836

I backed this and I'm really looking forward to getting hold of it.
Had an email update last week to say it will be shipping out to us in a few weeks.

Yes it is.  It is similar to what was created for the Vectrex.  It's a cool way to play games that are only available in ROM.

Well, there are so many lists of top games but here is another one to check out for the Genesis/MD.  This one has 50 games!

Just saw this, which I thought was interesting.  I've seen several of these games in Ebay and they are all expensive indeed!

I have a few of those, I always joke that if I go bankrupt I'll just sell off my old Saturn games.

EDIT:  I'm just wondering, are the Shining Force games that rare, or are they just high in demand as classics (like Earthbound)?  I remember them being pretty common at used game shops/flea markets in the 90's, either way I'm glad I loved RPGs from a young age and snagged them back then.
