Review: SEGA Mega Drive Classics for PS4

Friday, June 1st, 2018

It’s 2018 and it’s time for another Mega Drive collection for modern systems. This time around we have SEGA Mega Drive Classics for PS4, Xbox One and PC. This collection has been developed by d3t who have previously worked on the SEGA Mega Drive Classics Hub for PC. In fact, this collection is incredibly reminiscent of the Hub and includes the same bedroom menu presentation. PC owners of the Hub will also notice it has now been patched to more closely resemble the collection on consoles, except it still retains its Steam Workshop support for mods.

Sonic Triple Trouble 16-Bit has no release date at present, but it will be a PC title and the description for the trailer says, “This is a fan game you can expect to be completed… soon!” Hopefully not too long of a wait, then.

Unreleased Amiga Sonic Clone ‘Blaze’ Finally Released

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

blaze

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.

Metal Band ‘Centiment’ Making Album Called ‘Streets of Rage’

Friday, October 4th, 2013

Now this might be a bit of a tenuous SEGA link but I think it’s worth mentioning. British metalcore/electronica band Centiment (who also feature members of InMe) are running a Pledge Music campaign for their debut album. What’s the album called? Why ‘Streets of Rage’ of course!

Other than being named after a famous SEGA beat-em-up, the band are also offering a remix version of the album which will feature “more than a little nod to video game music”. All the donation tiers are also cleverly named after generations of video game consoles with the lower levels being ’16bit’ and the highest level being ‘128bit’.

If video game inspired metal is your cup of tea then you might want to consider making a pledge towards Centiment’s album. You can access the Pledge Music page for the album by clicking here and download a free song by clicking here.

SEGA Tunes: DJ Yoda feat. Scroobius Pip – SEGA RIP

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

Today’s SEGA Tunes feature is a hip-hop song by DJ Yoda featuring Scroobius Pip and is entirely about the Mega Drive/SNES console war. The song makes some humorous references to Sonic “whoring himself on Mario Olympics” and SEGA fans revolting against them because of Ecco the Dolphin. The song obviously takes some historical liberties in favour of a good rhyme, but it’s still an entertaining listen.

Be warned! This song does contain bad language and references to the “SEGA Genesis” despite both artists being from the UK where the console was called the SEGA Mega Drive:
