Unreleased Amiga Sonic Clone ‘Blaze’ Finally Released

November 17th, 2015


In 1993 a man called Keith Bugeja was working a new platformer for the Amiga called Blaze. The game was to be published by Warp Software but development was stopped for unknown reasons. Well, I say, “unknown” but when you look at how close the action is to the original Sonic the Hedgehog, you’ll soon come to your own conclusions.

Check out Blaze in action via the embed below:

The only existing build of Blaze has now been dumped and is available to download from Bugeja’s personal blog.

Famitsu Reveals Valkyria of the Blue Revolution and Valkyria Chronicles Remaster for PS4

November 17th, 2015

valkyria valkyria

The previously trademarked Valkyria of the Blue Revolution has been given its official announcement via the latest Weekly Famitsu. This new game in the Valkyria Chronicles franchise will be the first for PS4 and from the images in the scan above, it would appear to be a little more fantastical with a focus on melee weapons.

Also announced is a remaster of the original Valkyria Chronicles which will also come to PS4. This will likely be the same port of the game that was released on PC but rolled out for PS4 owners.

More news on both games as we get it.

SEGA Looking Into Re-Releasing Shenmue 1&2

October 27th, 2015


Sega’s European marketing director Jon Rooke has confirmed that SEGA are, “exploring ways to re-release the original two Shenmue titles.”

This is by no means a confirmation that the re-releases are going to happen, but this public confirmation that the company are at least making an attempt to bring the games out of retirement is certainly a positive one.

Fingers crossed a new generation of gaming fans get to play the original two Shenmue titles before the third game drops on the projected release date of December 2017.

ROM of SEGASonic Popcorn Shop Now Playable in MAME

October 26th, 2015


One of the more obscure sights in the arcades of the early nineties was a Sonic-themed popcorn dispenser called SEGASonic Popcorn Shop. While the machine obviously dispenses popcorn, it also featured a short mini-game to entertain the young’uns before the popcorn left the machine. The machine also features dipswitches to allow the ROM to run in different languages. I have definitely seen a machine in the UK when I was very young so I can confirm it was distributed into other markets.

The ROM of the machine is now available to play in the MAME emulator and you can see footage of the attract screen and the mini-game in the video below. Check out that rather dainty Robotnik!
