Sega LogoSega has been a key player in arcade entertainment for ages, dating back to slot machines and mechanical arcade entertainment and eventually moving into the world of console gaming as it spurred off. With multiple entries through the years to slug it out with Nintendo, Sega was a household brand looking to reach audiences untapped by their competition. In 2001 the Dreamcast was discontinued after heavily building financial issues taking Sega well into the red.

Going beyond that period Sega emerged as a software developer for third parties, producing original content (Sonic) and taking on 3rd party licenses for adaptations including sporting events and movie related properties.

Alien: Isolation Gets Release Date

The very first video game I ever played was Alien Trilogy way back on the PS1. I was four. It scarred me for life and made me an all-time Alien fan. Which means I am more frustrated than a lot of people about the lack of a truly great Alien game, and why I am so fucking psyched we might be getting one this fall with Alien: Isolation, which we now know is coming out on October 7th of this year. [...]

 

Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F 2nd is Getting a Physical Release

The unbelievable success of Hatsune Miku in the west continues as Sega today has decided to bring over the 2nd game in the Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA series. The idol dance simulation came out with a digital only release for its Vita version as Sega tested the North American market. They then brought forward a physical copy for the PS3 later. Seems like both of those tests proved fruitful. Not only is Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F 2nd coming over [...]

Looks Like Outrun is the Next 3D Sega Classic Heading to 3DS

One of the most charming gems of the 3DS’s library has been Sega’s selection of 3D rereleases, which not only add extra dimension to classic arcade and Genesis games, but also adds creative features and touches, such as Ecco’s “Dolphin Mode” and the addition of actual moving arcade sounds to After Burner. Now, some eagle eyed fans have noticed the addition of a logo for an Outrun 3D to Sega’s website, meaning that the super chill and always cool racer will most likely be the [...]

 

Crazy Taxi: City Rush Announced For…Mobile

Today, Sega announced that Crazy Taxi is being rejuvenated in the form of a mobile game entitled, Crazy Taxi: City Rush. Creator of the original Crazy Taxi and Executive Producer of Crazy Taxi: City Rush, Kenji Kanno, is a long for the *ahem* ride. Kenji says, “I’m very excited to finally be able to share with you the first news of Crazy Taxi: City Rush,” and added, “We are delivering a truly fun game that captures everything our fans love about the original and infusing it with several new [...]

You Can Finally Kill Zombies with Movie Quotes in New Typing of the Dead: Overkill DLC

If you’ve played The Typing of the Dead: Overkill, you’ll know that you kill zombies not with guns nor the power of friendship, but rather through typing various English phrases. Since its release, the game has received content to add Shakespearean dialogue to the game’s dictionary as well as a slew of swears and curse words phrases. Now, however, you can type and maim with your favorite movie quotes, thanks to the new Silver Screen Lexicon Pack. The pack includes [...]

The Vicious Sega vs. Nintendo Console War is Coming to the Big Screen

Once upon a time, two gaming giants duked it out in front of the world: Sega and Nintendo. The story has since been chronicled by Blake J. Harris in the upcoming book Console Wars: Sega, Nintendo, and the Battle that Defined a Generation. The book essentially covers how Sega was transformed into the powerhouse competitor for Nintendo and the intercontinental corporate battle that ensued for years. With information from interviews with hundreds of former Sega and Nintendo employees, it should [...]

 

A Sonic Fighting Game: Sonic Battle – Game Mechanic

Lately, on Game Mechanic, I’ve been shedding some light on games that were oddities or have simply been forgotten. Last week I talked about the lone Mario FPS. Before that, I found myself presently surprised with Equinox. This time around, however, things won’t be so pleasant. I’ve never been a fan of traditional Sonic games. I simply don’t enjoy the core gameplay so I feel like I’m unfit to judge them. Sonic Battle, on the other hand, has nothing to [...]

First Peek at New ‘Sonic Boom’ Designs [UPDATE: Now With a Trailer]

Remember last Fall, right when I first started writing for Twinfinite, when I posted a picture of the silhouettes of a bunch of new designs for the new Sonic cartoon, Sonic Boom?  Well, apparently, Sega is a hosting a “Year of Sonic” (TOO SOON, GUYS) event in New York today where the public is getting its first look at the new characters and plans for the Sonic brand.  And… um… well, this is Sonic and Knuckles at least. Admittedly, it’ll take me [...]

 

Sega Reveals Alien: Isolation, Complete With Gameplay Trailer

In what seems like one of the most sudden reveals in recent memories, Sega have announced the existence of Alien: Isolation, a first person survival horror that appears to have already had a lot of work underway. Created by Creative Assembly, this is a real move away from the action-oriented games of Aliens past involving a multitude of enemies and space marines with pulse rifles, and instead favours a lonely, tense experience of being stalked by a single Xenomorph aboard [...]

Brand new updates and DLC for both Company of Heroes games

Developer Relic Entertainment and publisher Sega are making sure to take good care of their golden goose: critically acclaimed WWII strategy series Company of Heroes. In most cases, the sad truth would be that only the latest in the series would be supported into the future, but today Relic are rolling out some updates for both games, as well as a paid add-on for the second title. Players still enjoying the first game in the series (like myself) will be receiving [...]
