We have already mentioned Sacred Line: Genesis, a new Sega Genesis digital comic/adventure title, but here is our official preview of the game based on hands on play time. We will have a review available soon. If you have played titles in this genre like the unofficial Silent Hill game or Snatcher than you know […]
Back in the earlier days of gaming, cross platform releases in North America were kind of rare. It was not with every release that every viable platform, and some not so viable, got a version at the same time.

Developers continue to create new games for platforms that have long since ended their commercial viability- this could be due to the proliferation of emulators. Take Cadàveriön for instance, it is an adventure title that shares some game play elements with Resident […]
Sonic is one of those titles that you are either a fan or not. There is not a lot of wiggle room for anything in between. Gamers either love the high speed gameplay or they loathe it. Going by sales, and sequels to capitalize on those sales, it is safe to say there are a […]
