The Resurrection of Segata Sanshiro (at SEGA FES 2019 at least…)

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.

Get Your Own Sega Pluto Console (Not Really)!

Heh-heh-heh; fooled you, didn’t I PCWzrd13? HA-HA-HA. #ShoutOut

Anyway, during the lifetime of the Sega Saturn (between 1995 to 1999), Sega was creating a new and updated Saturn console with a built-in NetLink modem nicknamed “Pluto.” This was done because, well, you know, Sega couldn’t help themselves NOT to release and support YET ANOTHER gaming console — and this gripe is coming from a Sega fanboy, mind you. Well, it’s been rumored that only two Pluto system are in the wild, and one of them is up for auction at GameGavel courtesy of user kidvid666, who says that he purchased the Pluto for $1 at a garage sale about five years ago.   Continue reading “Get Your Own Sega Pluto Console (Not Really)!”

Capcom to release 10-disc Mega Man soundtrack collection in an E-Tank; Not Available in the US

With everyone’s favorite blue bomber Mega Man turning a quarter-century old (or “25” for the mathematically deficient) this year, video game publisher Capcom has decided to celebrate by compiling the music from the series’ 10 main games into a single collection.  On September 19th, the collection will be available for ¥14,700 (or $183.56), but unfortunately won’t be available in the United States, so you’ll have to venture into the wilds that is the completely Japanese online shop, E-Capcom (or just use Google Translate).  Darn, first Capcom takes away Mega Man Universe and Mega Man Legends 3, and now I’ll have to import this or learn Japanese. Woe is me….well, except for learning Japanese…that would be awesome.   Continue reading “Capcom to release 10-disc Mega Man soundtrack collection in an E-Tank; Not Available in the US”
