    • Service Games: Audio Book Out Now

  • SEGA Horror Fest review: Vampire: Master of Darkness

    … and plays just like your standard 8-bit Castlevania game. Hell, the music even sounds a bit like Castlevania-ish. Dr. Social’s movement, jumps and attacks are all similar to Simon’s, but he seems to be able to get around better in his environment. The control is very tight, and he can also squat and move in a weird duck-waddle kind of way. As odd…

  • SEGA Deals Update for September 12, 2014

    …. are getting weekly sales. Sonic is part of the mix this week, though the only game on sale is the Game Gear version of Sonic the Hedgehog on 3DS Virtual Console at 33% off. Better than nothing? Technically, yes. The Amazon highlight for the week is for those nostalgic for some Dreamcast action following this past week’s 15th anniversary of the console’s…

    …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!…

  • Puzzle Columns: Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine

    …, with my personal favorites being the title theme, Stage 9-12, and Stage 13. 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…

  • Puzzle Columns: Baku Baku

    … Welcome back to Puzzle Columns, where today we’ll be discussing Baku Baku (also known as Baku Baku Animal in certain territories). Released in 1995 for arcade, and 1996 for Game Gear and Saturn (and 1998 for the Master System, wow!), Baku Baku is a puzzle game in which pairs of symbols fall from the top of the screen. These symbols include…
