Retro Core Mega Drive Audio Showcase

Posted on May 21st, 2020 by Hitstun

I’ve been following Retro Core for 15 years from its original video game reviews to its recent videos about ports of games and the Chinese knock offs that play them.

When applied to Streets of Rage 2, the music keeps playing but goes out of sync and creates strange remixes. Be […]
