Back At It Again with the new Arcade Cabinets!
I have some fond memories of playing the Sega Saturn back in the day; mostly at friend’s houses and the karate studio as I had a PlayStation at home (along with a Genesis and Game Gear). I had fun playing Nights: Into Dreams, Street Fighter Alpha 2, Sonic Jam (believe it or not), Sega Rally, Panzer Dragoon Saga, and the like. Now, we are approaching the 25th anniversary of the Sega Saturn’s launch in Japan, and Sega’s going to turn back time and bring back a “dead” character.Continue reading “The Resurrection of Segata Sanshiro (at SEGA FES 2019 at least…)”

Allow me to regale you in the days of GameTrailers (pre-IGN buyout); they were at one place THE place to watch video game trailers and excellent original and contracted content. They also produced some excellent video game series retrospectives (The Legend of Zelda, Metal Gear, and Halo series’ included, just to name a few), as well as a short-lived series attempting to make sense confusing … Continue reading Got ‘Kingdom Hearts III’? About to Play ‘Kingdom Hearts III’? Here’s a Kingdom Hearts Timeline video from the spirit of GameTrailers…
Later this week — by “later”, I mean TONIIIIIIGHT, TONIIIIGHT — will be the live broadcast (and stream) of the 2018 edition of The Game Awards 2018, which will take place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

Recently, Chinese game site A9VG covered Kingdom Hearts III, there was a pretty noticeable omission in the story: Winnie the Pooh. Above, … Continue reading Behold China’s Censorship of ‘Kingdom Hearts III’…
…not TOO MUCH unlike the Men Who Stare At Goats. Anyways, Evan Amos wasn’t happy with the lackluster image quality of gaming console Wikipedia, so he started taking and sharing pictures of his own consoles. This venture of passion would lead to Amos to create The Game Console: A Photographic History from Atari To Xbox. Amos’ book, now available for purchase from physical and digital bookstores, is a wonderful hardbound tome consisting of 250 pages of video game systems from the first generation (the Magnavox Odyssey, Pong consoles, etc.) all the was through to the current, eighth generation of game consoles. Continue reading ““The Game Console” is THE Video Game Book for Gamers Who Stare at Consoles…”
Analogue has been making great-quality recreation video game consoles for reliving our favorite old-school games via modern technology. So far, they’ve released the Analogue Nt and the more-compact Nt mini (for playing NES and Famicom games) and the Super Nt (for playing your old Super Nintendo games). While they come in at a premium price, there’s good reason for it; they rely on an field programmable gate array — or FPGA — technology rather than the common route of emulation found in most other retro clone systems. Now, Analogue is taking the next logical step and are announcing the the Mega Sg, which will be compatible with your Genesis, Mega Drive, and Master System cartridges. Plus, you’ll be able to connect your original Sega CD and Mega-CD add-on systems. SCORE! Continue reading “Analogue announces the ‘Mega Sg”, a.k.a., the PREMIUM Sega Genesis clone console…”
On September 28, Square Enix announced that Skrillex and Hikaru Utada will be collaborating to write and produce a new song for the upcoming — and highly-anticipated and long-awaited — JRPG, Kingdom Hearts 3. The track, titled ‘Face my Fears’, will open the game when it comes out early next year.
