HuCards!

They were secondary games for the master system but very similar to the primary ones for the TG-16.

Quote:
The HuCard format is probably the first and most impressive feature of the PC Engine system. How cool was it, back then, to go and visit some friends with a dozen games fitting in the palm of your hand ? But Games on cards were not only available for the PC Engine system, far from it. Let see what else we can find...

As mentionned, the MSX also had a few games stored on cards. The Master System also had few games on cards. They were released in Japan around 1985 and were called Sega Mycard. A few of them were released in Europe and America as Sega cards. Never wondered what the slim port of the original Master System console was for ? Here you go, this was to play the tinny Sega cards.

For some pics of the sega ones it's about 2/3 down the page.

Back then the only games you could get hold of were at the end of an hour long drive to magic mart. And they would have about 3 games. None of which I could bring myself to ask grandma to actually spend money on.


I did waste a wholllllleeeeee lot of time with this one though. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Action_Fighter

IIRC, they were lower grade games I used to have a Master System and still have a few games. F-16 Fighter comes to mind. My Hero was another.

Holy shit! A game that makes G-Loc look awesome:



Little bit of random trivia the Game Gear was basically a portable Sega master system.

It was one of the very first games to launch with the Master System. It was also very frustrating. I think I traded it for something... I traded my Master System for a Genesis Master System Adapter plus a game. This was a promotion Sega had. Only problem was that not all games were supported. F-16 Fighter wouldn't work with it.

The Game Gear was sold up until the late 90's. I remember when Toy's R Us were liquidating them for $20. I should have bought them. Instead, I bought a NES Advantage they were also liquidating. I still wouldn't mind getting a Game Gear. I still have all of my old Genesis games.

The problem is the screens are all washed out by now, mine will still play but it doesn't look nearly as good as when i played the hell out of it during road trips in the 90's.

I remember getting a 32X with Viruta Fighter and the star wars arcade game for something like 25 bucks altogether from Toys R' Us, I'm waiting for the Wii or maybe even the Wii U to have that fate to pick up some of the better games.

Was that the one that had the 3D glasses? Didn't they use the card slot?

Been too long, can't remember. I was pretty excited when I got it, though!

Crap. I was Steam rolled.....

By my boy. We went to see world war z last weekend. All he's talked about since was some zombie game. He talked his mom in to letting him download it on to her computer. Of course, her computer can't handle gaming, so he begged me to let him load it on mine since he had already spent the money on it. So now my computer has steam on it, and I spent four hours over the last two days figuring out how to make day z work for him. Now I'm back to using a small monitored, crappy computer while he sits there getting killed constantly and asking me to help him.
The game does look kinda neat, but I don't have the time or desire to play games in the middle of summer. Hopefully he figures it out by thanksgiving and can talk me through it.

My kids have always had their own computer and it's always been able to keep up with what they want to play. Right now I'm lucky that they only want to play web games or minecraft on the wife's iPad.

Although the 9 year old has been watching me play Torchlight she doesn't want to pay the $7.99 for the Mac version from GOG.

Just wait....

My son is 14 and lives a "computer-centric" lifestyle. In addition to being an avid gamer, he plays keyboards, so his computer is also a MIDI studio.

Two years ago, I bought all the components to let him build a desktop that would be upgradeble. So far he's replaced the CPU, video card, added a hard drive, added RAM and is already looking at another video card!!

We have an xBox, but apparently real gamers use keys.

When I came home from the hospital I had a NES controller put in my hand to play Rush'n Attack. Now I bet I sucked , but I love my controllers.

But otherwise my half brother is a bit younger but I'm hoping to build a gaming PC with him soon.

Yes, the Sega had active 3D glasses. Can't play them on a flat screen TV. I'm not sure what's going on with his double vision though. That's not supposed to happen. I had a friend with all those games and remember them well. It sure beat the Nintendo 3D with the paper blue and red glasses.
