If you were someone that had the poor quality MegaCD footage etched in to your memory it would be nice to see them in their original quality. Like getting a nice bluray conversion of a movie you watched on VHS as a kid.

That Hasbro Control Vision console used VHS tape as the storage medium, so I presume you'd have to fast forward and rewind the tape to the appropriate point for each scene?!

Funnily enough I was listening to my 10 year old nephew telling my dad about fortnite twitch streams yesterday. Strangely my dad didn't have any questions or any comments about it, but I suspect that's because he understood literally 0% of what was being said.

Was there not an AMD technology a few years back that allowed you to combine the power of the APU with a discrete GPU for a kind of crossfire? Any idea if this would be possible with this chip?

@skewp Plenty reviews manage to keep them independent. This review basically reads "good game...but I can't recommend it because of the developer". Or we could start going down the path of every member of the dev team having their online history, what they listen to, what they wear, political leanings analysed before a proper review can be given?
