Video Game Maintenance

Many spent their younger years blowing cartridges to get their games working after seeing a black screen, Little did we know back then that a cotton bud (q-tip in North America) coupled with some cleaning solution would clean the contacts of the game and make them work again. This trick has saved many titles all around the world. Sharing this tip will make you a hero among friends. The sega mega drive console seldom failed the system was always ready for action as long as the contacts were kept clean on the title you were able to get down to action.

Sega vs Nintendo the rivalry

Much like the Super Nintendo, the Sega mega drive was 16 bit, it had an array of really classic games and original arcade ports on the console. Which meant no more spending money in the arcade all the action could be had in your own home gaming. The version of the console you own can be distinguished by the colour buttons on the mega drive. Unlike the Snes (Super Nintendo entertainment system) which is more difficult as the variations are done by way of circuit board upgrades. Both consoles are classic home entertainment systems.
Upon release gaming had changed forever, most games had a two-player mode version available, allowing split-screen mode in lots of games, Some games like Wily Wars you scrolled along with the level together uncovering the action-filled world of enemies around you. Some Games allowed you to play the Hero or enemy, you decided who to control Contra hard corps or champion edition street fighter had characters to choose.
