Let the good people at SEGA know what you want.

Sega Not Giving Up On Mature Wii Titles Just Yet

Recent retail disappointments haven't dented Sega's confidence

As much as we loved Madworld and House of the Dead: Overkill, neither title sold particularly well, which has led many 'industry experts' to suggest that mature, hardcore games just can't find an audience on Nintendo's console. In the light of two high-profile commercial bombs you'd expect Sega to step back from mature gaming and..

Is Super Monkey Ball about to step onto your Balance Board?

New trademark application in the US suggests so.

There are some combinations in the world that just seem natural: fish and chips, ham and eggs, plumbers and magical kingdoms. Chief amongst all these blessed unions is that of monkeys and balls, but even that holiest of pairings could get even better if the newly-uncovered trademark application for "Super Monkey Ball Step & Roll" lives..

First Impressions: Let's Tap

Let's Tap

Tap into a new game experience.

After the physical exertion of Virtua Tennis 2009, and with the shame of my first-round exit still hanging over me like a dark cloud, it was a pleasure to sit down for a bit with Let’s Tap. As a huge Yuji Naka fan I was dying to find out how his new studio Prope’s first game would play, and as soon as I got my fingers on the little orange box I had my answer:..

Virtua Tennis 2009

MotionPlus, a full online mode AND curly wigs? It's too good to be true, surely...

Strawberries and cream, Robinson’s fruit squash and appalling curly hair were all out in force for Sega Europe’s Masters Monday event, an invitation-only tournament with some of the best Virtua Tennis players on the circuit – and me – in anticipation of VT2009. There were even two guests of honour - Sumo..

Toss Some Tuna in Sega's Wacky World of Sports

"Mind boggling sports action" is coming to the Wii!

Flush from the success of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, Sega has today announced the rather strange-looking Wacky World of Sports.

Here's the press release in full: Wacky World of Sports takes..
