When Sega Announced the Genesis Mini, it promised 40 games on the system when it launched in September. Today, Sega tweeted the final titles of the system and revealed that the system is actually getting 42 titles, with Tetris and Darius making up the two surprise titles.Continue reading
All the way back in the Summer of 2012, the Ouya took the world by storm. The promise was to release a modestly priced micro console, the first of its kind, that anyone could develop for. Their Kickstarter campaign quickly blew passed its goal and raised over $8million.
But it was not all roses and sunshine. The Ouya quickly caught the ire of those in the more “hardcore” gamer persuasion. They lambasted the system for its “under powered” hardware and the fact that it ran on an Android operating system, an OS typically used by hated “casual” gamers. But not all controversy was this kind of trumped up BS. The makers of the console created a number of controversies of their own.Continue reading
Today, Sega released the titles of the next ten games for the Sega Genesis Mini coming in September. This brings the total to 30 out of 40 titles the system will come with.

Sega has released the titles of 10 more games coming to the Genesis Mini coming September 19. Andrew and I took the time to come up with 30 games we would like to see on this console. So where do these 10 games line up with our predictions?

That was it for titles on our lists. So what other games did Sega reveal that are coming to the Mini?Continue reading
The big news recently is that Sega is finally ready to launch their true competitor to Nintendo’s NES and SNES Classic consoles. While it is true that Sega has licensed out their console brand and game libraries to At Games in the past for a retro console experience, those offerings were plagued with terrible controllers and emulation. In response, Sega pulled the development of their latest retro console experience in-house and will release it this year on September 19th.
However, much like Sony, Sega is holding some of its cards close to its chest. While we know that we will be getting a Genesis 1 formatted console and two of the 3-button controllers with HDMI output for $80, we only know 10 of the 40 announced games. Those games are Ecco the Dolphin, Castlevania Bloodlines, Space Harrier II, Shining Force, Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine, ToeJam & Earl, Comix Zone, Sonic the Hedgehog, Altered Beast, and Gunstar Heroes.Continue reading
Happy Public Domain Day Everyone! This is a momentous occasion as this is the first year since the 1978 Copyright expansion that the US has actually had one of these. Today, the first works from 1923 will enter the public domain in the US and it is a bittersweet moment for everyone who cares about the progress of art and science. Sweet for the wonderful works that people will be able to distribute freely without risk of being sued or jailed for doing so. Bitter for all the works that have been lost because the owner of the copyright didn’t care about preservation or because the copyright owner cannot be found.Continue reading
