TecToy Releasing New Sega Genesis Bundle

It is no secret that Nintendo themselves are releasing the Nintendo NES Classic Mini (previewed here).  Nintendo is making sure that this is a closed system and not one that will feature user augmentation of any kind – no SD card support, no cartridge support and no USB options.  Nothing other than the included games.  […]

27 Years Ago Altered Beast Rose From the Grave!

Sega released Altered Beast on the arcades 28 years ago. A year later Sega developed a “perfect” port for the Genesis system and released it on August 14 1989.

Swabby Homebrew Independent Sega Game Gear Shooter Released

Scrolling shooters.  You are probably tired of me bringing up that the heyday of this genre being long gone.  That is fine.  It seems to be working.  We are seeing more scrolling shooting games pop up from the independent developer world.  That makes me happy.  I mean, I still for the most part suck at […]

Rise From Your Grave, Altered Beast – Today in History – August 14, 1989

As mentioned in the history article for the Sega Genesis, Altered Beast was the pack in title.

Sega Threw Down the Gauntlet with the Sega Genesis – Today in History – August 14, 1989

Sega was a clear second in the 8-Bit wars against the Nintendo Entertainment System. The Sega Master System was held back by so many problems that Sega was ill-fitted to rectify.
