Aliens: Colonial Marines Delayed Until Autumn 2012

Thursday, January 26th, 2012

SEGA’s official Aliens: Colonial Marines page is now listing the game’s release date as ‘Autumn 2012’ which means the game has been delayed. The game was due for a ‘Spring 2012’ launch but the lack of noise in the Gearbox camp should probably have made this delay a little more obvious.

YouTube Channel: The SEGADriven Mega Drive Collection

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

Ever wanted to see what SEGADriven HQ’s Mega Drive collection looks like? Well the mystery is no more thanks to this video I put together:

I’m still not entirely sure I like this video, but if it interests some then I suppose that’s all I could ask for! Interesting note, there are actually 149 games in this collection as I forgot to include Pier Solar.

Pier Solar Back In Stock, Soundtrack Now Available For Pre-Order

Monday, January 16th, 2012

Pier Solar, the massive new Mega Drive RPG from Water Melon Co. is now back in stock. The version in stock is the reprint edition that features the old-school, black square artwork that Mega Drive fans will know from earlier releases.

However, the reprint edition does not come with the CD soundtrack that is optional to use with the game. The soundtrack used to be available as a downloadable image which you could burn yourself so that those with the reprint edition could experience the game the same way those who got the first pressing did.

Well now Water Melon Co. have made a 4 disc special edition of the soundtrack available for pre-order. The 4 disc edition contains the original soundtrack on 2 discs, as well as a disc of remixes and another disc which contains the soundtrack for use with the reprint edition.

The soundtrack is not expected to be released until the 1st April 2012 (this better not be an April Fools!) so there’s plenty of time to place an order. You can place an order at the official Water Melon Shop here: CLICK HERE
