Destined to fade into obscurity over time, Sega would help revolutionize and change video games, computers and how we interact with them, and the Internet as we know it. Riding the cutting…

  • SEGA Horror Fest review: Vampire: Master of Darkness

    Ya know, Nintendo used to be a giant asshole. Well, they still are in some ways, but they were way, way worse during the 8-bit era when they known as the Hitler of the video game industry. Like, for instance, did you know they'd make third-party publishers sign an agreement that forced them to only develop games on Nintendo platforms and not on any competing console? Many peo ...

    …You probably can’t get these amazing Sega items ⊟ The Mega Drive doll (with controllers for hands, oh my god) and the Game Gear pen case will be sold by Cospa at Tokyo Game Show 2014. I’m really enjoying the image of a journalist at TGS, conducting interviews, navigating the cramped show floor, and introducing themselves to executives… while awkwardly carrying around a giant Mega Drive. I totally would have been that guy. Via Miki800. SUPPORT TINY CARTRIDGE Join Club Tiny!…

The Game Gear version, while staying almost identical in terms of gameplay, does have a Puzzle Mode, where you have to follow the instructions with the beans you are given (ie clear all red beans, clear 10 beans at once, etc.). Incidentally, the Game Gear version was my first…

  • Sonic on the Go: Sonic Blast

    …If Sonic Triple Trouble was the apex of Sonic’s Game Gear titles, its successor Sonic Blast was arguably the nadir. Aside from a few lousy spin off titles like Sonic Labyrinth and Spinball, no Sonic game on the system failed quite so hard as Sonic Blast did. Don’t get me wrong though, I still think Blast was a fun game personally. For all the hate…
