Sans crazy arcade installation It's been a real joy re-experiencing classic titles from Sega's past. With the recent releases of Outrun and Fantasy Zone II bringing back some serious nostalgia trips, the folks at Sega have still got plenty of 3D remasters ... read feature
Yoshimitsu has undergone a lot of changes over the years. From a cyborg to a more traditional ronin outfit, to a bug...thing, and now, Cthulu's newphew. I dig them all, and across multiple franchises like Soul Calibur, he ha... read
