    Sega Ages Collection (Switch)

    Virtua Racing confirmed to be coming out this Spring in Japan. http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2019/03/sega_ages_virtua_racing_will_support_eight-player_splitscreen_and_online_races_on_switch Apparently new features will include an online two player and an EIGHT PLAYER local split screen mode. I'm rather surprised they went for more players on the local mode than online, I suspect that will be an eyesore all on one TV. Nice SEGA's finally releasing some of their 3D retro titles at least. Also seems like the modifications to the Ages releases are getting more ambitious, especially with what the emulation displays can do (kinda hoping Sonic 2's split screen gets some tune ups as well).

    Turok on Switch-WAIT WHAT?!?

    So at least one N64 game is confirmed for the Switch at last.
  3. With the evidence really piling up on MJ, let us enjoy one last classic before it becomes distasteful.

      Oh god. What happened?

      A new documentary interviewing alleged sexual victims of Jackson. While obviously this isn't new, the evidence appears to be valid enough in this case that BBC have banned all use of his music.

      Oh well, BBC won't be streaming Sonic 3 then

  4. Okay it's nice we're getting our own Pokemon region, but why exactly a monkey for the grass starter? They're not exactly native around here in the UK. They'd have been better saving Rowlet for this one.

    1. VEDJ-F


      They're here to represent the vast area of England called Trentham Gardens.

      Rowlet ended up as stilt owl, or some other type of Hawaii native species, when fully evolved.

      Water dude looks like a chao

    4. Pawn


      tigers aren't exactly prevalent in Hawaii, so I wouldn't count on it necessarily evolving into something native to the UK

  5. Anyone find irony that SEGA AGES haven't announced a single Mega CD rerelease yet given that menu?

    1. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      Maybe not ironic but it might be the first time that Sega is going to have something on there since well... the Mega CD. It could also be referencing their stuff especially if the 32X is there.

      Besides apart from Sonic CD, Dark Wizard and Shining Force CD, I'll be struggling to think of any game. If we count Sega first party or stuff that they published then not many to choose from.


      Let's see:

      F1 Beyond the Limit - Licensed game
      Sega Arcade Classics Collection - Revenge of Shinobi is a port, Streets of Rage just has sample differences and is a port, Columns is a port with a new title screen song that they could put in, Golden Axe just uses the arcade soundtrack but one player so M2 will just use the Mega Drive version, Super Monaco GP has rights issues.
      Sega FMV games (Tomcat Alley, Surgical Strike, Midnight Raiders)- Might not have the master disc/film any more and I don't think most made it to Japan.
      Night Trap (they originally published it) - No longer have the rights however the game has appeared on modern platforms though.
      Phantasy Star Text Adventures - Possible but will have to be translated and they were originally on Seganet, Mega Modem or whatever it was called.
      Popful Mail - Rights issues with Falcom.
      After Burner 3 - Possible but might have rights issues regarding planes, could be a combi port of this and Strike Fighter.
      Shadowrun - Licensed game and not translated.
      Ecco the Dolphin 1 and 2 - Recent rights issues with creator.
      Rise of the Dragon - Unknown.

      Obviously the Batman games, the NFL football and Jurassic Park all have rights issues.


  6. I think it has potential, SA1 demonstrated that, but it didn't quite deliver enough substance in the matter. The Adventure Fields were empty and most just a barren hub world to get you from one level or cutscene to another, while Knuckles' treasure hunting was fun, but more along the realms of a simplistic mini game. It likely wouldn't have held up without a proper Sonic campaign mode there. The immersive explorational feel to the game is definitely there and appreciated, there's just not enough developed about it, while later games tended to take a 'one step forward, two steps backward' approach.
  7. Come on, M2, SEGA AGES Knuckles Chaotix, with an Ages Mode that uses good level structure with loops, water, etc. and fully adds Tails. You know it makes sense.

    1. TheOcelot


      Nah, EveningStarStudio are gonna do the Chaotix port 😋

    2. VEDJ-F


      Guys, they need to make a profit on these releases you know. 

    3. Thigolf


      "Knuckles Chaotix with an AGES Mode that makes the game actually good"

      I mean

      ...I'd take it.

    4. The drunkard from space!

      The drunkard from space!

      Id rather them add Ray instead of Tails tbh

    5. Yeow


      ....why not just make a new game at that point.

      Chaotix's problems are completely structural.

    "Ages Mode aims to be original game in its complete form." That quote interests me. I'd love to see more of their entries attempt that to some degree, an extra version of the game with bells and whistles that were planned but didn't make it in originally. I know they intend to put in some dumped concepts for Sonic 2 at least. What happened to the dual release of Gain Ground and Puyo Puyo this month however?

    Reflection about past cartoons and new series speculation

    I appreciate Sonic Boom for, in spite of its meta sitcom-y premise and liberties with the cast, actually trying reasonably to deconstruct some of the key characteristics of at least three main Sonic characters (Sonic's altruism/ego, Tails intellect/machine obsession, Amy's charitable nature/self righteousness). Knuckles and Sticks were more basic comic relief, but not neglected outright. I never really felt like any previous series went that far with the cast, even the more serious ones just did very basic parables of the same primary traits of a handful of members at best (eg. Sonic being reckless in SatAm, Knuckles being gullible in Sonic X) or neglected developing its cast entirely for cheap hooks like romance and just external only dilemmas. Boom was also probably the best for interactions, there wasn't really any two main characters who never really had chemistry for at least a few episodes. I'd love to see more of that, especially since Boom demonstrates you don't have to be writing any sort of elegant 'epic' to have to give such depth to the Sonic cast. It just has to be character driven. Hell Mania Adventures proves you don't even need dialogue to give the cast a reasonable amount of personality.

    Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled (June 21st, 2019)

    I could see an N Tropy track being some cool mish mash like Velo's in CNK, just frenetic warping to different time themed backdrops. Of course something like that would have had way more technical limitations in the original.
  11. A few Archie characters felt like they got skewed absurdly between writers. Sally in particular felt like one of those characters the writers were stuck with and tried desperately to tweak to appease the fans without quite understanding their aims. They also pretty much just made Fiona a fanfic level Ron the Death Eater.

    Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled (June 21st, 2019)

    Holy crap, an actual hero-themed egopolis.
  13. The combat admittedly wasn't developed in the show, it was always kinda humour and personality driven primarily. Even Knuckles' brute strength didn't seem that well demonstrated. Amy sort of felt like the character that was meant to use her wits as much as strength or weaponry. The Fuzzy Puppy Buddies was a case of her using REALLY unexpected methods to neutralise an enemy. I suppose it could be considered the most developed use of Amy's niceness as a characteristic after that Mania Adventures episode, even if later episodes kinda Flanderized her from just being altruistic into an outright Lisa Simpson activist.
  14. It's a shame the Wii Shopping is now gone, since it was probably the most legit way to handle online game shopping for Nintendo. Those games are guaranteed in your Wii until the console breaks. With the Nintendo accounts, there's always the lingering concern that once that service becomes defunct, so will your access to all your games. The Switch worsens it with the online subscription apps, which will obviously likely lose support shortly after the console ends its run.
