Review: Alien Storm on Mega Drive

Wednesday, January 28th, 2015

Alien Storm is an often ignored entry in SEGA’s beat-em-up history for reasons that aren’t particularly clear. Did the humour put off the die-hard SEGA fanbase? Were SEGA fans simply not interested in anything that wasn’t Streets of Rage or Golden Axe? Who knows. Regardless, we think it’s a game you should check out and now we have a review explaining exactly why we think it’s worth your time.

Centiment to Tour in November With Multiplayer Mega Drive Gaming at Every Show

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.

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

What’s really interesting about the collection is the 2 new inclusions that are exclusive to the collection.

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.
