YouTube Channel: Alex Kidd in Miracle World 2

August 8th, 2017

Ian Wall and some talented contributors from SEGA8Bit have developed a homebrew fan sequel to Alex Kidd in Miracle World for the Master System. The game ignores the events of Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle and instead re-imagines a sequel to Miracle World as a Master System title. The game is free to download via this link and can be played via emulator or flash carts. Take a look below for a short let’s play from us that shows the game in action:

Review: Hatsune Miku Project Diva Future Tone

August 8th, 2017

Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tone is a PS4 port of the arcade title of the same name. If you’re not familiar with the arcade machine then the control setup is simplified to using just the Playstation face buttons for scoring the standard notes and a touch bar that lets you slide your finger across it to score slider notes. Every now and then you’ll have to score a combination of different notes together and advanced players can score hold notes and continue to combo other notes while still holding the hold note.

Review: Yakuza

August 7th, 2017

01

The first game in Toshihiro Nagoshi’s hugely successful Yakuza franchise is a fascinating little game because it showcases a lot of familiar elements that will stay with the series all the way to present day. Yakuza is an incredibly accomplished first entry in a series that has simply reiterated on its template instead of taking it in a completely different direction.

Unofficial Sonic-Themed Social Media App ‘Rings’ Appears

July 7th, 2017

rings01

In a move that is probably going to bring The Ban Hammer down pretty strongly, a social media application developer called Narvii Inc. have released a Sonic the Hedgehog-themed social media app called Rings without any approval from SEGA themselves.

The app is available now on iOS and Android devices and is completely free, but it requires registration using either your email, mobile number of Facebook login. It’s pretty comprehensive and features support for things like your own profile, complete with a comments wall and gallery, chat rooms, quizzes and various feeds that allow you follow the latest Sonic news and much more.

Narvii Inc. have rolled out a lot of similar social media apps with a similarly niche focus. The iOS app store currently shows similar apps powered by Narvii Inc.’s Amino social media platform that are themed around wrestling, video games, K pop, anime and much more.

If this sounds like something you’d like to check out, you can download the iOS version by clicking here or the Android version by clicking here. Please be aware that these are not officially sanctioned SEGA products and we will not be held responsible for any negative user experiences you may have.

SEGA Tunes: The Sonic Forces Vocal Theme is Predictably Sung by a Pop Punk Vocalist of Yesteryear

July 6th, 2017

SonicForces-Logo-1024x713

In keeping with the theme of Sonic Team dredging up pop punk vocalists whose popularity climaxed around 2003, the Sonic Forces vocal theme ‘Fist Bump’ features Douglas Robb from Hoobastank. This is pretty in keeping with mainline Sonic Team-developed Sonic titles as we’ve previously experienced themes by Zebrahead and Jaret Reddick from Bowling for Soup.

We’d previously heard an untitled instrumental version of this track back in March, but this version features Robb singing along with the main guitar melody. Check it out below:

Sonic Forces releases on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC around Christmas this year and is being developed by Sonic Team.
