They should have put all 16 games in the same unit. But I guess the model itself has more commemorative value than the games that run on it. There are better ways to play Game Gear games, so having playable games on these tiny screens is more of a novelty.
The only thing I can think of after seeing it's size in someones hands from the video.
Seriously, couldn't they have made it bigger? It's like there's a 1mm wide gap between the 1 and 2 buttons on the right side, won't it make playing any speed based game tricky to control if your thumbs are basically engulfing the d-pad and buttons?
I just can't understand outside of collectors who this could be for apart from Children and people with small hands? This entire thing seems like a late April Fools joke.

A remake of Alex Kidd in Miracle World has been announced.
Just recently I was thinking that with all the classic Sega franchise revivals we've gotten from indie developers, isn't it about time someone brought back Alex Kidd? And here we are!
It's interesting how open Sega has been to licensing out their old IP to be revived by small developers. Can't imagine Nintendo ever doing something like this. (Cadence of Hyrule doesn't count since it's not a revival.) Seems to be working out for them, though.

Here's something rather amusing.
In late March, 2019, SEGA Group held SEGA FES 2019, an exhibition where visiors can play their games and other large-format attractions. It just so happened that the closing day was the day before April Fool's, and they disassembled their SEGA logo display and loaded it on a truck to make it read GASE, Japanese for falsehood (in both senses of a joke and a deceptive lie).
Twitter user Shioreet came across the truck and took the photo, and SEGA's account retweeted with the comment "our April Fool's advertising truck went through Akihabara".
Their Twitter account manager was later asked about it. As it turned out, this was not an intentional joke, just that the display and the truck's design means it had to be loaded this way. "You don't see the GASE logo everyday, so we jokingly retweeted this to share with our fans."
Also, SEGA makes this tweet on April Fool's every year, as a literal "GASE neta" (intentional fake information as a joke):
It evokes the image of the SEGA logo sound effect, swapped around.
Nester the Lark: I've had similar thoughts the past several months. What do I really use social media for? I don't interact a whole lot, so for me, it's more about getting content. "Less about the social, more about the media" as I like to put it.

nocturnal YL: On second thought, maybe I should give Bluesky a try. I was actually considering Mastodon as a replacement of X and didn't really think much of Bluesky since posts are viewable by members only, but I guess it wouldn't hurt to try.

Evie ❤✿: I relate with that and Twitter. I started using it and got addicted to scrolling, retweeting things. Nowadays I come back in short waves, or learning about media like you. Unfortunately it's hard to keep track and Musk doesn't like datascraping.

Evie ❤✿: The other reason I use it is to follow art channels I like, specifically to browse cute art.

nocturnal YL: I have got a Bluesky account. I'll consider actually posting later. And I haven't even used X for at least a month. There are a few X users I'm interested in re-following (in a general sense) if they have accounts elsewhere.

nocturnal YL: The problem with being completely sucked into Surge Concerto's world is that I can't actually look them up outside of the game, since everything, including some official media, is spoiler. It's the same issue as BLUE REFLECTION: Second Light.

Evie ❤✿: Cool ^^ Sorry to hear that Hope you have fun with the games until you don't have to avoid the spoilers.

Evie ❤✿: I've been fed up with online editors and software which claims to be free but isn't. -_- I've usually joined an image with audio w/Avidemux which actually is open source. Now I just use FFMPEG to do same for less clicking. I'm satisfied this way though. ^^

Evie ❤✿: I think microblogging sounds nice too. I might try it myself one day. ^^ Twitter/X's character limit is restricting, as is the organisation/discovery of tweets. Don't worry about audience, it isn't important tho if u want one I'm sure will get1 eventually.

Evie ❤✿: Funnily enough there is a recent Hatsune Miku/Pokémon collab called Pokémon feat. Hatsune Miku Project Voltage 18 Types 18 Songs where it imagines if Hatsune Miku was a Pokémon Trainer and what Pokémon she'd use.

Nester the Lark: Sony has announced a State of Play for tomorrow after the Direct. Didn't they do this last September, also? EDIT: Yes, they did.
Sept 13, 2023 16:04:08 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Not a bad Direct. I'll post my impressions later.

Nester the Lark: So, I still don't know if NST had anything to do with Mario vs. Donkey Kong on Switch, but plot twist! They *did* develop F-Zero 99.

nocturnal YL: About a quarter done in Ciel nosurge DX (1/3 story, about 1/5 items). Absolutely love the story, but the gameplay is pretty bad. Wouldn't have liked it at all in its original online, real-time-only form.

Nester the Lark: Apparently, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 won the Award of Excellence at TGS.

nocturnal YL: This is unexpected. His name is almost synonymous with the studio.

nocturnal YL: Surge Concerto (and the overall Ar Tonelico series, from what I know) has deep lore and unfathomable dark stories on top of rather shallow gameplay. It's in some ways a far more extreme version of the BLUE REFLECTION series.

nocturnal YL: Game design similarities aside, I'm surprised that the same developer behind Atelier can make something like this. Not exactly my cup of tea, but that's an extra layer of appreciation I have for them.
