Sega Licenses Genesis Roms To Taiwan Bus Company

By Spencer . March 3, 2009 . 12:45pm

All of the Sega Genesis collections show Sega isn’t ashamed to profit of their history. Sega isn’t afraid to license their history to third party companies like Blaze either. A Taiwanese bus company got in on the action and put Genesis ROMs like Sonic & Knuckles, Golden Axe 2, and Alien Storm in their on […]

Will Mortal Kombat vs. DC be anything like this?

By Spencer . April 18, 2008 . 4:29pm

Seeing Sub-Zero and Batman together is bizarre. Really, really bizarre even if Midway cuts fatalities in favor of DC Universe canon. Even stranger is this will not be the only fighting game with DC characters. When Street Fighter II clones were all the rage good old Acclaim released Justice League Task Force. There wasn’t even […]

Lost Phantasy Star, found and fan translated

By Spencer . June 22, 2007 . 12:08am

Before online gaming was chic Sega tipped their hat into the online ring with the Sega Channel in the USA and SegaMega Net in Japan. Both devices let players access online only content such as Mega Man: The Wily Wars (*was released as a cartridge in regions outside the USA) and a series of text […]

Watch: Sega Technical Institute’s lost Sonic Game

By Spencer . May 16, 2007 . 7:07pm

Game|Life pointed me to a video of a US developed Sonic the Hedgehog title based on Sonic: The Animated Series. There is a neat pseudo 3D move Sonic has where he steps into the background, it’s sort of like Guilty Gear’s two stage system but developed during the days of the Genesis. Sonic also has […]

Sonic’s plug and play TV controller

By Spencer . April 30, 2007 . 6:40am

  I can’t imagine this being a comfortable controller to use since you have to grip a fist shaped joystick, but PlayPal’s Sonic the Hedgehog shaped controller is a neat novelty for Sega fans. The PlayPal plug-n-play Sonic joystick comes packaged with a mix of twenty Master System and Game Gear titles. Here is a […]

Sega sent over a release that Streets of Rage 2, Toe Jam & Earl Panic on Funkotron, Shining in the Darkness and Kid Chameleon are going to be released on the Wii’s Virtual Console. If you had a Sega Genesis you probably have fond memories of Toe Jam & Earl, where you use funk to […]

Wonder Boy coming to the Wii

By Spencer . March 23, 2007 . 5:36pm

Sega sent over an e-mail announcing three new virtual console titles for the US Wii line up. Virtua Fighter 2 and Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle aren’t a surprise because both of these were release this week on the Japanese Virtual Console list. You probably want to stay away from Virtua Fighter 2 anyway, […]

Meta analysis: Classics people don’t play

By Spencer . February 20, 2007 . 2:31pm

No gamer plays every title on the market and even game journalists overlook the old school. What about the general public? How many gamers missed out on the Legend of Zelda even though it’s been released on the NES, Game Boy Advance, Gamecube (via The Legend of Zelda: Collector’s Edition disc) and most recently, the […]

Streets of Rage Remake

By Konstantinos . February 5, 2007 . 11:16am

Streets of Rage, the archetypal SEGA Genesis/Megadrive 2D side-scrolling beat’em up, will soon be gracing the Wii Virtual Console. Presumably, for a price. Now, taking into consideration that a) most people haven’t got their much deserved Wiis yet b) Virtual Console games are slightly overpriced c) every PC owner has more than 128MB of RAM, […]

By Spencer . January 29, 2007 . 11:09am

After only releasing one title last week, Nintendo has four classics coming out on the Virtual Console. Mario Kart 64 is probably going to be the most downloaded game. It’s the Nintendo 64 game repackaged for the Wii and if you liked it then you’re going to like it now. Contra III: The Alien Wars […]
