    How come no one talks about this Genesis game? This is fucking badass.

    You are a comic book writer who gets stuck in your own book and have an electric rat that fights with you. How quintessentially 90's. Fucking awesome game, just played it for the first time yesterday, this has to be one of the best genesis games ever.

    Great game. I remember renting it a few times. It got so overlooked because it came out so late in Genesis' life. I think the PS1 was already out.

    Ha that question is answered within the first 20 seconds of the video you posted! It came out at the end of the genesis...plus it's 2009.

    I played it back in the day, I have it on my genesis collection. thats about it....

    i played that game when it came out

    and a few times since then

    One major flaw; the game is ludicrously difficult. Just like he says in the trailer, the game is hard as fuck. It's really cool, but unless you're on an emulator save stating everywhere you're gonna die a lot.

    It's easy enough just no continue kills you. And health comes by so rarely, it really makes it hard. Also, punching doors, etc takes damage which is bullshit!

    But so fun

    I've never beaten it :o

    Never went through with save states. The whole taking damage while punching objects thing was fucking bullshit.

    It's a damned good game, even if you're no good theres incentive to keep playing..

    many times I rented it and I couldn't beat it though, I don't think I ever beat it on the Sega :o I did beat it using an emulator though :cool:

    yeah, in the end, the boss throws you girly-friend in a nuke and it slowly fills up with a liquid. You have to beat him fast enough to drain it before she drowns. Depending if you rescue her or not you get 2 different endings.

    One it says "Will our hero try again?" and the other, you 2 live happily ever after.

    I don't even think you can save her until you beat him.

    Fun game. I didn't think it was that difficult, but it definitely had it's moments.

    One of my all-time favorites from back in the day.

    Genesis for life.
