When I saw the PR e-mail from Sega about Dynamite Headdy joining Sega Forever, my mind went to straight to Decap Attack. I have no idea why, but for some reason I've confused the two games over the years. Anyway, you can now download Dynami...

Do you remember?: Comix Zone

Speed past your friends in Sonic Mania's competition mode!

With how popular split-screen gaming used to be in the retro days, its crazy that Sonic never really had a competitive multiplayer mode outside of Sonic 2 and 3. I have a lot of memories of wanting a full on co-op experience like that, tink...
