Review: Digital Pinball on the SEGA Saturn

Sunday, February 5th, 2017

digitalpinball1 001

Pinball is high score gaming in its purest form; smack a chrome ball around a table and watch the numbers go up. There’s obviously a little more to it than that, but pinball offers a great feedback loop as you hit targets, bumpers and ramps and the machine blasts noise and light at you to indicate you’re doing well. It’s a visceral and exciting experience that will cost you an arm and a leg if you ever wanted to buy your own table and maintain it, so thankfully pinball simulation games came to the rescue to allow us all to enjoy the thrill of pinball from our homes.

Snatcher Devs Working on New Adventure Game

Tuesday, February 11th, 2014

Now here’s an interesting little development (even if it is only slightly related to SEGA)!

Key developers behind Mega-CD and Saturn game ‘Snatcher’ have joined forces to create a new Japanese adventure game called Blakemore. The game is set in a steampunk, alternate universe version of London.

The game is being directed by Jeremy Blaustein, the man responsible for the English-language version of Snatcher on Mega-CD (this has been the only time the game was ever available in English). Art is being handled by Satoshi Yoshioka who worked as the character designer on the original Snatcher and music is being handled by Motoaki Furukawa who did the soundtrack for the original Snatcher.

Snatcher is famous for being Hideo Kojima’s second ever game and features some small references to Metal Gear. Curiously, David Hayter is being brought on board for Blakemore (famous for voicing Solid Snake in the Metal Gear Solid) to voice one of the characters.

If you’re interested in helping the development of Blakemore you can back the game on Kickstarter. The game is due for release on PC and MAC in early 2015. Click here to go straight to the Kickstarter page.

SEGA of Japan Launch Range of Console-Themed Laptops

SEGA of Japan have teamed up with ebten to launch a range of SEGA NOTE PCs. The laptops are themed around 3 SEGA consoles with an additional SEGA-themed laptop. The 3 consoles are Mega Drive, Saturn and Dreamcast which you can see in the above image.

As the laptops are Japan exclusive they will probably be very expensive to import. Regardless, here’s the Japanese retail prices:

SEGA: 99,750 yen or £680.26
Mega Drive: 131,250 yen or £894.96
Saturn: 162,750 yen or £1,109.75

Rumour: Sonic the Fighters, Fighting Vipers and Virtua Fighter 2 Coming to XBLA

Tuesday, October 9th, 2012

The USK release schedule page appears to have just leaked announcements for Sonic the Fighters, Fighting Vipers and Virtua Fighter 2 on X-Box Live Arcade.

All 3 games have received ratings on the site which could mean that HD remakes of these releases are planned for XBLA. There is currently no official word from SEGA but looking at their recent release habits with the likes of NiGHTS into dreams, Sonic Adventure 2 and Jet Set Radio all getting revived it could well become a reality.

More on this as we get it.

Guardian Heroes Coming to XBLA

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

Treasure’s classic side-scrolling brawler Guardian Heroes is coming to X-Box Live Arcade this autumn. SEGA are re-releasing the Saturn title with their love-it-or-hate-it smoothed graphics option seen often in their Mega Drive collections. New game modes and online co-op is also confirmed.

SEGA executive Haruki Satomi released this comment, “Ever since we began to make SEGA’s classic Dreamcast and the Mega Drive titles available for modern systems, the fan response has been overwhelming – and the demand for their favorite games has been pouring in. Players have been clamoring for this treasured favorite from the Saturn days, and we cannot wait to show them what we have got for them.”

Hopefully this re-release will pave the way for other SEGA Saturn games to come to XBLA and hopefully Playstation Network. Fingers crossed!
