A whole lotta love for Sega's last hurrah
The Dreamcast, Sega’s last combatant in the console wars, was a beautiful failure – a forward-thinking machine arguably scuppered by company infighting and mismanagement, public fatigue after a spate of expensive Sega hardware releases, or simply being a year or two before its time. Ah, what a monstrous...
20 games to mark 20 years
The Sega Dreamcast turns 20 today – it launched on November 27th, 1998 in Japan – and if you, like us, grew up with this remarkable machine, this particular anniversary will make you feel very old indeed. While many retro systems feel like relics, Sega's console somehow still feels like the future, even after all this...
Only a matter of time?
The first entries into Sega's AGES range on Nintendo Switch have finally arrived, with plenty more games still lined up to follow suit, but there's one question still hanging in the air. That question revolves around Dreamcast games and, in particular, whether or not the Switch will receive any games from the long-discontinued...
We'll take seven
There was a time when you'd be branded a fool for ever thinking that Nintendo and Sega would team up to release content on the same system, but these days you can find Sonic splattered all over the Switch's eShop almost as much as Mario himself. Taking this newfound partnership further - and beyond the realms of reality - this...
The retro gods have smiled upon us
It's safe to say we're big fans of the retro-focused wonders coming out of Retro-Bit - including the brilliant Retro-Bit RES Plus and the wealth of classic titles on its Super Retro-Bit micro-console - so you can imagine how excited we are following the announcement that it's teaming up with Sega to bring a...
"In truth I was really surprised - in a good way"
Sega and Nintendo's history has been well documented in the past, with the two firms being bitter rivals during the 16-bit era. In recent years things have become a little more rosy, what with Nintendo publishing some of Sega's games on its consoles. Sega's transition from hardware maker to...
To sell this many takes ages
Buried within the details of Nintendo's recently announced second quarter earnings for 2015 it was revealed that the Wii U has now sold 10.73 million units. While this will be a small consolation to the bean counters at Nintendo (after all the original Wii has sold a whopping 101 million units to date), it is significant...
The last throw of the dice for Nintendo's old rival
Sega's Dreamcast holds a special place in the history of home video game entertainment. It was an innovative beast, being the first home console to offer online connectivity out of the box and setting the modern trend for sourcing internal components from PC manufacturers. It also proved to be...
"It will be easy for us to port the game to Nintendo consoles"
The Dreamcast may be dead and buried as far as Sega is concerned, but that doesn't mean that developers have entirely abandoned the console. Back in 2012, NG.DEV.TEAM's Gunlord brought its high-octane, Euro-style platforming action to the "defunct" system, and 2014 has started with...
