Actual Basketball from the NBA Jam Cover Discovered

Thursday, November 22nd, 2018

Gaming historian Steve Lin of the Video Game History Foundation has managed to win the actual basketball used for the NBA Jam cover art in an online auction. Lin’s intention is to get the item displayed in a museum.

The basketball itself is actually a resin model and it adorned the cover art for the game and various promotional material. NBA Jam made its way onto several SEGA systems including the Mega Drive, Mega-CD and Game Gear back in 1994.

Review: SEGA Game Pack 4 in 1

Tuesday, June 6th, 2017

cover

SEGA Game Pack 4 in 1 is a 1992 Europe exclusive compilation title that was bundled with Game Gear consoles as a very obvious way for SEGA to show off the system’s superiority to Nintendo’s Game Boy. You are given four alternatives to some of the Game Boy’s biggest hitters, but they’re now powered by the Game Gear’s colour display.

Click here to read our full review of SEGA Game Pack 4 in 1 for the Game Gear.

Game Gear RetroN 5 Adapter Due for Release Later This Year

Sunday, July 5th, 2015

retron5

The unofficial hybrid retro machine known as the RetroN 5 will get a system expansion thanks to a new adapter that allows it to play Game Gear games.

Hyperkin’s product manager Paul Leung confirmed that work on the Game Gear adapter is already underway and it is due for release by the end of the year. No exact release date or pricing has been revealed at this time.

The system already allows you to play NES, Famicom, SNES, Mega Drive, Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance games out the box. Master System games can also be played with the assistance of a Power Base Converter. While the machine is powered by console emulation instead of the actual guts of the systems it supports, it actually offers some of the best emulation available on these hybrid machines and offers 720p output as well as a save state feature.

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

We’ve spoken about Centiment in the past because the British metallers have quite the penchant for old SEGA games. Their debut album Streets of Rage released earlier this year and features the songs Defenders of Oasis, Bloodshot and Zero Tolerance.

Now the band embark on a UK tour in December in support of their new EP, Retro. Creatively titled The Retro Gamer Tour, the band are setting up multiplayer Mega Drive action at the merch desk of every show on the tour.

If heavy music with a retro gaming twist is up your street then you might want to catch Centiment on one of these upcoming UK tour dates:

1/12 – Think Tank, Newcastle
2/12 – Audio, Glasgow
3/12 – Fibbers, York
4/12 – The Compass, Chester
5/12 – Alfie Birds, Birmingham

Centiment feature 3 of the 4 members of British rockers InMe. You can stream and buy their album Streets of Rage by clicking this link.

Unreleased Master System/Game Gear Versions of Lemmings 2 The Tribes Dumped

Saturday, May 17th, 2014

Unreleased versions of Lemmings 2: The Tribes have been released by SMS Power. The Master System and Game Gear versions of the game were completed and even sent to SEGA Power Magazine for review in 1994 but were cancelled due to the dwindling sales of SEGA’s 8 bit consoles and the high cost of cartridge production at the time.

You can get the ROM dumps for both versions of the game by registering at SMS Power. You will need an emulator to play the ROMs. Click the below links to be taken to the entries on SEGA Power:
