Whatever happened to sega?

You know I remember not too long ago how much I loved Sega. Back on the XBOX I was absolutely in love with Otogi 1 and Otogi 2.

Granted they were From Software games, but Sega published them and I loved them for it.

Shinobi back in the days even on the old Master system was one of my favorite games. Sega just had this ability to make incredibly fun and addicting games. When they produced hardware I iommediately fell in love with their systems. My genesis was played literally almost all day long.

Shit even remember when they made the F-Zero game for the gamecube? That game was god damn amazing.

And don't even get me started on my old Dreamcast, god I loved that system. I loved the Sonic Adventure games, flaws and all. Shenmue was incredible, even to this day I still think its incredible.

I suppose my main question is, what the hell ever happened? Sonic Team went from being like world reknown for being a great dev team, to being a team correlated to shit. Their system failed, I know. But I mean if people with a passion are at Sega, why can't they make decent games?

And give me another Phantasy Star on the 360, NOT A PORT OF A PS2 GAME.

Side note: My wants from Sega on the 360 or PS3 (Either works)

Phantasy Star
Otogi (MMMMM)
Yakuza (Please on 360 :D)
Jet Set Radio
Astro Boy (HD 2D Side Scroller on the XBLA or PSN, PLEASE TREASURE)
Panzer Dragoon

P.S. I know its not Sega, but please for the love of god make a sequel to Phantom Dust on the 360. PLEASE   read

First blog - and need computer suggestions

Hiya guys, I posted on a blog before but this is my first real blog. Been reading destructoid for quite a while now and finally decided to setup my account. So nice to meet you all.

Anyway onto what I wanted to know. I was thinking of buying the following components to build a new computer rig (I have a case that's fine), so I could play new games. For instance my current comp runs Lord of the Rings Online at like Medium, I want to run at max. BF2142 also. In particular I wanted to beef up my computer for Aion :D

Anyway suggestions would on the components would be nice. I was looking to spend 500ish and I went a bit over but ah well.

DVD Drive: SAMSUNG 20X DVD±R DVD Burner Black SATA Model SH-S203B
Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM 250g
Video Card: EVGA 256mb Nvidia 8600GT
Power Supply: Seasonic
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200 Dual Core 2.6ghz
Memory: 2 Gig Gskill DDR2 800MHZ (Buying 2 sticks of it)

Plan on picking up another 8600 GT for SLI in a little bit.

Thoughts? Think I'll be able to run new games good?   read
