Free-to-Play Total War Arena Announced

Thursday, March 28th, 2013

The Creative Assembly have dropped a bombshell and that’s the news of free-to-play, online multiplayer game, Total War Arena. The new Total War game allows 10 vs 10 player matches and control of 3 army units of up to 500 men. Sounds a bit mad if you ask me.

No release dates have been announced at this time, but we’re assuming this will be a PC release that could be either a browser-based game or a Steam release. More on this as we get it.

SEGA Announces a Load of New Mobile Games; Sonic 1 Remastered Included UPDATE

Wednesday, March 27th, 2013


A few more details regarding the release of Sonic the Hedgehog Remastered: iOS users who purchased the previously available version of Sonic the Hedgehog will receive the remastered version in an update.

Also, the soundtrack is completely remastered in order to give players the highest quality version of the soundtrack possible. Christian “Taxman” Whitehead has said, “The arrangements are identical to the originals, using FM synthesis. But they have been put together in a DAW environment and given an actual mix as opposed to simply recording the existing music. The Drum samples are sourced from the original synthesiser so they’re super clean and crisp too.”

Thanks SEGABits.


The Game Developers’ Conference has brought with it some great news for SEGA fans who use Android and iOS.

A new version of Sonic the Hedgehog will be released with widescreen support, solid 60fps gameplay and a new time attack mode brought to you by Christian Whitehead, the man behind the recent Sonic CD port.

No release date has been announced yet but a North American price-point of $2.99 has been confirmed. Rumours are also circulating that Sonic 2 will also be ported in this way.

Also announced are Puzzle Pirates which appears to be a pirate-themed MMO and House of the Dead Overkill: The Lost Files which appears to be a tailor-made for mobile gaming take of the Overkill formula.

Phantasy Star Online 2 Delayed in the West Due to Localisation Issues

Tuesday, March 26th, 2013

Phantasy Star Online 2’s Western release has been delayed from its’ original “early 2013” status due to issues surrounding the localisation.

A SEGA representitive has been quoted with, “Originally slated for an early 2013 launch, Sega can officially confirm that PS02 has been delayed. We don’t have any specifics but will update everyone as soon as there are more details to share.”

So that’s a bummer. The free-to-play PC version is available to play in Japanese but those hoping for an English-friendly version of the game (or an English version of the PS Vita release for that matter), they’re going to have to wait.
