I'm not sure how I pulled it off, but I've found another mobile game that was seemingly already available! Gameloft has announced that Sonic Runners Adventure will be heading to the Google Play and App Stores soon, but if you've actually be...

Do you remember?: Comix Zone

When we were young teens, me and my brother laid claim to the basement. The rest of the house was neat and orderly, a pastel world of floral designs and tasteful drapes. But, the basement was ours. A savage land of hand-me-down sofas, coffe...

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 joins Sega's free mobile game initiative

Sonic has had a bit of a crazy year. While Sonic Mania was well received by both fans and critics, Sonic Forces is a bit of a mess. Some people can dig it, but the general consensus seems to be that the game was a missed opportunity. Why no...

Review: Retro-Bit Dual Link SNES/Genesis Controller

The SNES Classic has been out a while now and my daughter and I have been enjoying it quite a bit. The best thing about it is the controllers. Having played with a Raspberry Pi, it was tough to find a suitable controller to use in the third...

Grab a new helmet while playing Decap Attack on your phone

In my quest to tangentially link all of my headlines of Sega's mobile offerings to the respective game, I drew a bunch of blanks with Decap Attack. What do you even title this? The oddball Genesis classic has you playing as some mummy looki...

Review: Retro Freak Premium game console

The SNES Classic pre-orders have come and gone and the dregs left behind without one will be forced to scramble wildly, clawing desperately at one another like a depiction of hell in a Hieronymus Bosch painting for the scraps. I don’t...

Sonic Mania intro running on stock Sega Genesis hardware

Sick as a dog today but I had to take a moment to post this. My buddy Ken Horowitz, author of Playing at the Next Level: A History of American Sega Games and owner of Sega fansite Sega-16 posted a video featuring a ROM made for Sega Genesis...

Ristar brightens up the Sega Forever line-up

Once upon a time, the Sonic Team didn't make solely Sonic the Hedgehog games. In the later days of the Genesis, Yuji Naka (Sonic's creator) tried his hand at creating a new mascot for the company (reworked from the original c...

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...

Celebrating 25 Years of Ecco the Dolphin

I just got back from a family vacation and have been feeling pretty burned out. For my wife, kids, and I, it was the first significant journey we took anywhere; a mere 14-hour road trip which might not seem like much, but with two kids in t...

[Update] Sega Genesis Flashback is not being well received

[Disclaimer: I have to apologise. This piece was originally written to be a little too inflammatory, and was not well thought out. I have no direct experience with this device but wanted to comment on clone consoles in general, having exper...

Sega Forever is poised to be the ultimate retro trip

Nintendo isn't the only company with an extensive back catalog of retro classics. Sega was also hot during the '90s and their portfolio of titles is nearly as ubiquitous with retro gamers as the Big N's. While Sega has never shied away from...

Some beautiful bastards are making a new Genesis beat-em-up

The last game commercially released on the Sega Genesis was a port of Frogger in 1998. If we disregard other homebrew or indie games, then it has been roughly 19 years since any of us had the chance to play a brand new game on the system. T...

Some mad genius hacked Bubsy into Streets of Rage 2

I'm a simple man. All I need in my games are cute characters, things to jump over, and dudes to punch in the face. But little did I know that I needed something like this. Thanks to Metal64, Bubsy is now a playable character in Streets of R...

Fan-made Sonic Utopia might be the best 3D Sonic game ever

For all the efforts Sonic Team has made, it's never quite nailed the 3D Sonic formula. Fans have fond memories of Sonic Adventure, but anything even resembling the Dreamcast classics hasn't been made since 2003 (Sonic Heroes). Maybe Generat...

Man tries to pawn Sega Genesis with meth inside

Sonic may be the fastest thing alive, but our subject today surrounds a different type of speed. On September 29, a 31-year-old man was arrested by police in Moultrie, Georgia and charged with methamphetamine possession after unknowingly at...
