Mario character guide.

Nice to see every early enemy character drawn in standard SMB style.

This is the only time I've seen the "Olive Oyl" Pauline (from Donkey Kong) drawn in Super Mario Bros style (Yoichi Kotabe style). They tone down her Olive Oylness. She resembles Princess Peach. (The American art by Zavier Leslie Cabarga drew her to resemble Fay Wray.) She's credited as "Lady," separately from the later dark-haired Pauline seen in the Game Boy game, Mario vs DK and SM Odyssey. Dark-haired Pauline was inspired by the Fay Wray Pauline, but made to look more dissimilar to Peach.

Notes on ROM-dumping an old LCD video game (like the handheld Tiger ones).

Search for "Sonic the Hedgehog" on Google and he shows up. Then click on him 25 times.

Sonic 3D Blast (1996) for Sega Genesis now gets a Director's Cut patch (from the original developer) which improves the controls, fixes the camera, adds Super Sonic, adds cut enemies and a time attack and other tweaks. The game is often overlooked due to its controls.

Also: SONIC 3D Blast has a full motion video intro sequence, which should have been impossible to fit on a Sega cartridge, even a big 4MB one like 3D Blast. Here's how they did it:
