Yeah, it works a lot better if you just use the Down+Jump, like Classic Mega Man's slide, but even that's not great.

I've seen those, too; I sought them after deciding to give the game another go. Normally, I'd just prefer to explore on my own, but when you have a time limit and monodirectional scrolling, I want to have some kind of a plan.

My dad decided to be a responsible parent and took me driving in a field near our house during a snowstorm. There's nothing to hit up there, so he told me to do donuts and stuff, so that I'd get a feel for how it handles in the snow. As a result, I'm comfortable driving in most snowstorms. Well, the very next night, my theory was disproven; I saw my half-uncle, and he looked absolutely nothing like his voice should have manifested, and I even remember thinking that in the dream. I don't need to keep a dream diary, because my dreams are so vivid that I occasionally have trouble distinguishing them from actual events from my early childhood. That said, my early memories are pretty shattered.

Don't even get Madame Firebreath started on Skyward Sword; it added some great new elements, but in my full review, I gave the thing a 4/10. Only about an hour? Hell, you don't even have the sword yet, I'd wager. I haven't completely given up faith on the new Zelda, but I'm not likely to play it, especially if it remains a Wii U exclusive.

Sometimes I want to buy a Sega CD Model 1, just because I've always liked how it looks versus the Model 2 Sega CD (though they both look good, unlike the Master System where the Model 1 just looks SO MUCH better), but I've heard stories about people buying them, then the systems breaking once they got them home. I don't know how realistic these stories are, but I certainly do know that Sega CD Model 1s can break easily due to the moving disc drive and it being over 20 years old. That's how my first Xbox 360, died, actually. It was a launch model, so the fact that I had it for 5 years without Red Ring of Death was pretty impressive...but of course once I got my PS3 in 2009, I used my 360 MUCH less. The 360 I have now (A slim model) certainly gets more use than my launch model did.

The Sonic 2 Alpha's level select is pretty much exactly like Sonic 1's, yes. Now, I've never actually seen Sonic 1's, but all the old zone titles are there, so I'd assume it's the exact same. I actually just beat Sonic 1 Remastered...but I feel stupid cause I had 2 Chaos Emeralds at the end of Green Hill, and I completely forgot that I was going for them when I beat it, so I ended up with only like 3 when I easily could have gotten them all. I guess it'd be better served in a hack where you can actually go Super.

That sounds like Sonic 1 Special to me, yes. I don't know about playing as Tails and Knuckles, but there definitely is some pretty good music in that hack. Especially the first act of Scrap Brain, the final boss, and Battle on the Big Bridge (I forget when that played, Spring Yard?)

US Master Systems can play PAL SMS games, half of my physical SMS collection is PAL games. I don't know this for sure since I've never seen a Sega Mark III, but I'm pretty sure that the carts are different than US/PAL SMS, kinda like Famicom/NES and SFC/SNES, so US/PAL can't play JP games, though I think there is a mod for it. There's also a mod that adds a Game Gear slot to the SMS, which I always thought sounded pretty cool, but I can obviously play SMS and GG on Retro Freak anyway. I just keep my SMS around cause it looks awesome, and some of my save data won't migrate to the Freak. I blame Power Base Converter weirdness.

I'm not sure if Sonic Blast was another SMS>GG port or a GG>SMS port, because it was only released in Brazil...but I know the SMS did very well there, so that may be why.

That theme is priceless. Really also mirrors how I felt about the certain news.
