Greetings Backloggers! I hope everyone had a good holiday season. My backlog may have taken a bit of a wrong turn thanks to the Steam Sale, but it’s a new year, and a new chance to get on track. I’m not much for official New Year’s Resolutions, since those are far too often derailed almost before they’re begun, but I do believe in building on success, or at the very least, working on improving whe...[Read More]
Greetings Backloggers! Welcome to 2017! Sometimes there’s no school like the old school. Games were tougher. There were no “Press A to Win The Level” prompts or “Hide here for 30 seconds to regenerate health” options. On the other hand, things like limited lives, limited continues, and unsavable progress belong in the past as artifacts of cartridges and consoles without hard drives.
Greetings Backloggers! Welcome to column 007, where if I were planning better, I would have gone and played one of the various James Bond games lurking in my backlog. Instead, I set out with a plan to knock out a seemingly easy SEGA classic that’s been in my backlog in one form or another since picking up Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection for my PS3 back in 2009.
From PlayStation Experience this weekend, SEGA has announced that the next two years will be filled with plenty of Yakuza action, as they unveil plans to release Yakuza Kiwami and Yakuza 6 in the west.
Greetings Backloggers! A confession: I love free stuff. Free t-shirts? Got to get one. Free taco day? I’m there. Free donuts? I’m there a lot faster. Free games? Obviously. What, it’s not like I have a giant backlog or something.
Not going to lie, I have no idea what’s going on with the Hyperdimension series. It’s a game that personifies game consoles as cute anime girls and they do various things in each game with most of them being RPGs. Now, a whole new slew of characters are coming to the newest entry, this time taking on the legacy of the Sega consoles. Check out the new promo trailer below.
I’m a sucker for classics, as many of you that know me can attest. I have no problem walking into an arcade and blowing quarter after quarter on old-school favorites and coming away with a sheer sense of satisfaction. And that’s a good reason why I can appreciate Sega giving a full-on retail release to a number of its remastered 3D classics for the Nintendo 3DS, which were previously o...[Read More]
Sega 3D Classics Collection is a Sega Genesis compilation game, which features quite a few classic games with some not on 3DS until now!
While it has been in the works for a bit, Sega is trying to make a name for themselves by bringing the classics to the modern era. The Mega Drive Classics Hub (which is more commonly known as the Genesis in America) seeks to put players in the bedroom of a kid obsessed with Sega. This will be a free experience available on Steam, which will legally grant access to just about every Mega Drive Rom o...[Read More]
The legendary dragon returns to the criminal underworld of Yakuza. Kazuma Kiryu, once known as the Dragon of Dojima, was living a quiet life as a taxi driver in Hakata after severing all his ties with the underworld.
As the roar of the 20s quieted into the purr of the 30s, an American astronomer named Edwin Hubble, using big words like “recessional velocity”, “relativity” and “megaparsec”, rocked the scientific community the world over by suggesting that our universe is expanding. This discovery sent out a seismic shock wave that is still felt today. The buzz from talk of “the universe” isn’t...[Read More]
Sonic the Hedgehog, SEGA’s mascot, has been going strong for over 20 years. He’s been in games, TV series, comics and the like. Now, SEGA is planning to launch a new line in the Sonic series with Sonic Boom.
