Soleil. its so amazing. the music, the story, everything. one of the most underrated gems of the megadrive times.

Landstalker definitely is one of my favourites, its also very good

I actually never played Crusader of Centy/Soleil, but it looks amazing. I was hesitant about Nintendo adding Genesis/MegaDrive games to Nintendo Switch Online, bc I had the feeling it would be just rehashes of previous Sega compilations. But, I'm very happy to see them adding some unexpected gems like this.

its abit slow in the beginning but imo, the music makes more than up for it.

What's great about this is that these titles were never previously discussed, they just sort of came out of left field. I loved the Extreme G series back in the day. They were just beneath Wipeout and FZero, but still really good.

If I remember the courses were good, but the gameplay just slightly beneath wipeout. Farro had the most speed but simple handling mechanics of double tap to dash slide / barge and boosters on track occasionally with the recharge health sections, but wipes out had full weapons, lock on missiles or rockets
Then with your cancel weapon pick up / trading a shield for a missile if you’re behind someone or trade the missile for the shield if you were in First, compared to extreme g which was more basic. I could be wrong tho. It was an awful long time ago.

On a similar note, I always wished starters pod racer had weapons. It would’ve been one of the best.

Strange headline, as I thought the star of the show was Super RType. I almost bought RType Dimensions EX this last month and was just thinking, man I wish we had the SNES one somewhere on Switch. That's where I got my start w the series and I was beyond excited to see it drop this week!
