Knowing how Genesis add-ons tended to work I don't even want to think about what kind of cabling nightmare was involved in that even before you put the thing on and tumbled into the slideshow dimension.

Does that sort of setup actually run without hacking constitution buffs onto the circuits?

I bet that took a whole can of air just to get running.

There's no way it's fully functional. The Sega CD and the 32x both require their own power supplies, and there are no A/V hookups anywhere. I don't know if the 32X can pass through a signal if it's not powered, but it definitely can't without a connector cable.

...which begs the question of why the modem is plugged in.

(Also, for full effect the top cartridge should be the Sega Channel adapter, but that would probably make the tower collapse.)

Yeah, I looked for a Tower of Power that also had the Master System adapter, but couldn't find any that had both that and the 32X. (So I'm guessing you probably couldn't plug the one into the other.)

Reminds me of the even older Intellivision modular add-ons.

Unreleased Simpsons game found on Dreamcast dev kit

As far as we can tell, the game appears to have been long forgotten until this point – and you can kind-of see why. A Simpsons game in which you play as a bug? It’s a strange concept, for sure, but would make for a perfectly cromulent game.

And they didn't even use the Simpsons-appropriate bug.

Rare Dinosaur Planet for Nintendo 64 released unofficially

(That'd be the game that eventually became Star Fox Adventures on GameCube.)

Apparently it has some issues running in emulators, and while this is a late build it's not possible to complete. I expect we'll see some modifications to deal with those issues sooner rather than later.
