STAGE 62: Games of 2018

It’s seemed like a very hard task to top a year like 2017. In that year we saw some of the biggest names in video games reinvented and inject themselves with new life, from the lush open world of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to Resident Evil 7’s return to it’s horror roots to the manic wackiness of Super Mario Odyssey.

Blockbusters, like the Sonys Spider-Man and the incredibly detailed Red Dead Redemption 2 created an amazing year for gamers and it only seemed to get better with each upcoming game release!

STAGE 55: The SEGA CD

STAGE 55: The SEGA CD

welcometothenextlevel

released mid-way through the life of the sega genesis, The Sega CD allowed many gamers to play CD-based games. The system add-on also included various hardware functionalities such as a faster central processing unit , graphic enhancements and even play audio CDs.
By the early 1990s, compact discs were making significant headway as a storage medium for music and video games, with the TurboGrafx-CD being the first to use such technology in a video game console.
Because of this Sega’s Consumer Products Research and Development Labs were given the task of creating a CD-ROM add-on for the sega genesis, which became the Sega CD.

The main benefit of CD technology was greater storage, which allowed for games to be nearly 320 times larger than Genesis cartridges. This benefit would also introduce the concept of full motion video to many players who were lucky enough to own one.

As time passed, the releases of new CD-based consoles such as the 3DO Interactive Multiplayer would render the Sega CD technically obsolete, reducing public interest in the add-on.[12] In late 1993, less than a year after the system’s launches in North America and Europe, the gaming media reported that Sega was no longer accepting in-house development proposals for the Sega-CD in Japan.[23] Then, In early 1995, Sega would shift its focus to the Sega Saturn and discontinue all advertising for Genesis hardware, including the Sega CD, with
Sega officially discontinuing the add-on in the first quarter of 1996, saying that it needed to concentrate on fewer platforms and felt the Sega CD could not compete in the current marketplace due to its high price tag of 300$ and outdated single-speed drive. having sold 2.24 million Sega CD units, including 400,000 in Japan, The sega genesis is a small part of video game history that is still remembered greatly.

SO it is why this STAGE of the retro VGM revival hour is dedicated to the music of the sega cd….
