Try sponsor Readly and get 2 months free! ~ Think back to Bad Influence Series 3, episode 13. It was aired on CITV, on 1st December 1994, and it featured an array of things; a 32X, Sega Saturn, but most curiously a Scorpion XVI, otherwise known as a Sega Scorpion or Scorpion 16. This Sega Mega Drive & Genesis clone console was such an unexpected and mysterious artefact, that it stuck in my mind for years to come, and I wasn’t the only one. But just as suddenly as it appeared, it vanished, without a trace. So, let’s get to the bottom of this mystery and take a look at a Scorpion console, in the flesh.

Huge thanks to the excellent Violet Berlin and tremendous Steve Keen for helping with this episode.
