Remember the last post I made, about how there were all sorts of different AC Adapters and compatibility issues with the Genesis?

This next bit might make that all seem simple in comparison.

So, with that out of the way...let's get started talking about the Genesis (or Mega Drive, depending on your country of origin). There were three different models produced. The first one was the one I lusted after the most, mostly because it was the same model I played on with my...
