New Indie Mega Drive Title Marks 30 Years Since the Mega Drive Launched in Japan

Monday, October 29th, 2018

It’s the 30th anniversary of the Mega Drive, and what better way to celebrate than by playing a brand new Mega Drive game!

Developed by Dr. Ludos, 30 Years of Nintendon’t sees you trying to convince NES owners to buy a Mega Drive instead of a SNES by tempting them with more attractive, Mega Drive-exclusive games. It’s a silly little concept that makes for a fun distraction. You can play it in browser via the game’s Itch page, or alternatively you can download the ROM for use on an actual Mega Drive if you have a flash cart to load it onto.

There are also future plans to release the game on an actual Mega Drive cartridge through Catskull Games. If you’ve got some time to kill and you’re nostalgic for the days when SEGA were a market leader, then why not give 30 Years of Nintendon’t a try?

Sonic the Hedgehog Collaboration with Madeon Being Teased

Tuesday, February 9th, 2016

The official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account has uploaded a mysterious image with an encrypted message.

The accompanying text says, “The key lies with @madeon. Good luck.” Madeon is a French electronic music producer who uses a similar encrypted style of text on his music’s artwork.

While a Madeon collaboration linked to Sonic the Hedgehog seems inevitable, fans on Reddit have quickly worked to decipher the message in hopes it leads to information about the heavily rumoured 25th anniversary Sonic title.

It’s all a bit exciting, don’t you think?

1UP Reveal 20th Anniversary Mega-CD Article

Thursday, October 18th, 2012

1UP have released a special article to mark the 20th anniversary of the North American release of the Mega-CD (known as the SEGA-CD in that territory). It’s a cool little read and they name a handful of their favourite games, some of which are US exclusive.

You can read the article by clicking this link to be taken to 1UP.

Subscribers to our YouTube channel will know I’m a big fan of the Mega-CD and love collecting for it. It’s a home to my favourite Sonic game ever and there’s a certain allure to collecting for it as the games are usually quite experimental in nature.

Happy 20th Birthday Mega-CD!
