    Have you played General choas with 4 player’s? Always thought that would be great when I was little

  3. Martin's Games on April 1, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    Didnt you get Micro Machines in the USA?

  4. SNARCast on April 1, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    Ugh…a Model 2! (Yes I know, but I’ve been a Model 1 fanboy)

    But…Gauntlet IV? Hell yes!

  5. Martin's Games on April 1, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    Loving these new style of videos by the way!

    i need to get one them splitters. and $15 isn’t too bad

  6. Professor Peculiar on April 1, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    Gotta love Multitaps

  7. SneakyturtleEgg on April 1, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    Oh Blubbery! You forgot to mention the Barkley Shut Up and Jam games!!! Nice informative video. Actually there are quite a few 4 player games on the Genesis. Glad you got the Rev 2 Sega multi tap right too.

    Don’t forget Puzzle and Action Tant-R and Puzzle and Action Ichidant-r (sadly these were sold only in Japan so you’ll need a Japanese Sega Mega Drive)

    I got Micro Machines 96 with the 4player on card feature. It’s really cool, but having controllers plugged to the cartridge is not the optimal solution. Tugging on the cable may even restart the game. I’m still looking for a real 4player adapter.
    I got Gauntlet 4 too, btw. Mine has got the weirdest issue, though. It will always freeze after playing two player mode for a few minutes. I have never seen any other game do that, but G4 does it reliably.

    Sonic Classic Heroes and Lost Vikings 😀

  11. UltraMaster2O1 Studios on April 1, 2021 at 11:56 pm

    I love Mega Bomberman!

  12. KITT171 on April 1, 2021 at 11:57 pm

    Not really much I can say for this other than you did good explaining it and not doing it overly long, like I would hahaha. Nice one man. Would have been nice if I ever got to play Gauntlet IV with three others, never did though.

    Please tell me if this can be bought in Argentina! Y want to play Columns III: Revenge of Columns, in multiplayer version, since I was 10 years old.

  14. billybob884 on April 2, 2021 at 12:04 am

    Hellz yea mega bomberman! Good choice!

  15. Fleder on April 2, 2021 at 12:08 am

    Hi, do you know if the multiplayer adapters are region locked? Thanks

  16. Zach the Sports Guy on April 2, 2021 at 12:13 am

    NBA Hang Time works with the EA one

  17. nirvgorilla on April 2, 2021 at 12:15 am

    That sure is a lot of promotional swill in the description. Scumbag fraud gamer.

  18. N Segathon on April 2, 2021 at 12:16 am

    Thanks for clearing up how the switch works on the Multitap! It used to take be an extra minute or 2 trying to get EA games to work going through all the A,B etc settings. I am not a fan of the EA 4 way as when you have 4 dudes playing if someone is too boisterous with the controller it can pop out the 4 way a bit and cause a game freeze.

  19. Kos4Evr on April 2, 2021 at 12:17 am

    They should have called the 4 player adapter the 4 Play.

    thank you for this, found this video to find out what the "Extra" option was about, and didn’t know there was 2 versions I picked up the version 2, also as an addition, I have the Pal version of it, the switch is Red instead of black and the cables are half the length of the NTSC version.
