F-Zero Being Ported to Sega Genesis as G-Zero

F-Zero was one of those games that almost could have been just a tech demo had it not been fun to play.  Fans know that F-Zero was a Nintendo franchise that launched with the Super Nintendo and was the second best showing of what Mode 7 was capable of (Pilotwings was the best, for its […]

Survive the Dead in House of the Dead 2 on Sega Dreamcast – Today in History – September 9th, 1999

Arcade ports are Sega’s forte, at least they used to be, and their Dreamcast console was no different. With ports of Hydro Thunder, Soul Calibur and Mortal Kombat 4 (Gold on DC). Launching platforms with arcade ports became a Sega mainstay with the Genesis console and was continued through on the 32X and Saturn consoles […]

Sonic Goes 3D and Escorts the Dreamcast to Gamers in Sonic Adventure – Today in History – September 9th, 1999

Sonic is quite an enigma as far as company/console mascots go. Starting life on the Sega Genesis and hitting every Sega console ever released with at least one game, Sonic only lead one console at launch- the Sega Dreamcast.

Tommy Lasorda Baseball does not feature […]

3D Endless Running Takes Off With Space Harrier II on Sega Genesis – Today in History – August 14th, 1989

While not the first title to feature 3D “endless” running gameplay, Space Harrier II is the first to feature it on the Sega Genesis. Sega was eager to show off the power of their newly launched console and what better way to do that than with a title that would be severely limited on the […]

Hokuto no Ken Drops License, Gets Named Last Battle on Sega Genesis – Today in History – August 14, 1989

Sega, having just launched their Sega Genesis as their second North American console, were looking to bring over titles that showed why this console was better than the competing Nintendo NES and NEC Turbo Grafx-16.

This spurred many companies into dipping their toes into this genre that arcade locations loved to death, if the game in question had “Street” and “Fighter” in the name or at least “Mortal Kombat” in some form. Sega entered this genre years […]
