Sakura Wars Tops SEGA Japan’s Poll

Sakura Wars has come top in two separate categories in a recent online poll conducted by SEGA Japan: Most Memorable Creation and Most Wished-For Revival.

Super Nintendo Rayman Game Unearthed

Rayman was the first platform star of the 32-Bit era.  Ubi Soft was quick to launch this little guy unto the world of Atari Jaguar, then later Playstation and Saturn.  Sadly Rayman never made it to the 3DO console- though it would have surely been quite cool if it did.  Rayman was the first 2D […]

Revenge of the License: Alien Trilogy

One of iD Software’s initial ideas for Doom was to make a first-person shooter set in the world of James Cameron’s ‘Aliens’.

Sega were once known for their arcade games.  This genre was what they used to battle Nintendo until Sonic was released on the Genesis.  Even after the blue guy was released arcade ports were a strong category for Sega’s consoles.  This was no more apparent than on their Saturn console that was able to give […]

Sega Saturn Gets Lunacy – Today in Retro Gaming  – May 31st, 1997

Ah, full motion video (FMV) games.  How the world loves to hate you.  Lunacy was not your typical FMV game.  The events here are played out with animated video rather than actors.  Yeah, it is pre-rendered animation but it is EARLY rendered quality.  While I remember back in the day wanting to play Lunacy when […]
