Earlier today, a site announced that the retro style game Sonic Mania had been delayed until September, however, we have learn...[Read More]
Greetings Backloggers! Nearly thirty years before Flappy Bird tapped its way onto phones and tablets around the world, a different semi-flightless bird bounded her way through the world’s arcades. Starring a blue bird named Flicky trying to rescue her chicks from the predations of cats and lizards, the eponymous game would be ported to a number of systems including the SEGA Genesis.
The Warhammer 40,000 series continues to be a strategy juggernaut. Rolling out later in 2017, Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III signals a long awaited return for the franchise, and Sega has been only too happy to show off a new trailer and some vignettes for each of the three major factions. What is there expect? Let’s dig into all the trailer so far!
Greetings Backloggers! An eventful PAX South kept me from completing anything, although it did convince me to move one game to the “Retired” list. However, this week I’m back to checking another SEGA classic off the list.
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]
