Panzer Dragoon for PS2 – New Screenshots and Info

Back in July of ’05, I mentioned that Sega was working on a graphically enhanced version of the first Panzer Dragoon game (originally for the Saturn) for the PS2. Since the original was a great game, but had rough graphics, I was very interested in this upgrade. Today, Famitsu magazine released some new screens of […]

Game Reprints – Good or Bad For Collecting?

I have just finished reading one of the most interesting gaming articles I’ve read in the last month or so. Siliconera’s “The Business of Reprints” discusses a new company that legally reprints rare games. It involves a hot topic among game collectors as it benefits gamers that missed out on some high-quality, rare games, but […]

Did Gaming Charm Disappear With The Cartridge?

Do you remember that feeling you get when you first turn on the game? That thrill of something new and exciting. Remember when you had got your N64, you turned it on for the first time with Mario inside. BLING! It’s A Me, A Mario! It screamed at you. Do you remember that enchantement followed […]

About The “Hidden Gems” Feature

Usually, when you get a new-to-you console or you boot up an emulator for the first time, you can usually find or remember the major games to check out. But what happens when you need something different to play? This is where the “Hidden Gems” come in. With my new “Hidden Gems” feature, I plan […]

How To Open/Burn BIN Files Without CUE Sheet

There are two main formats for Sega Saturn, Sega CD, and Neo-Geo CD game images — BIN/CUE and ISO/MP3. Both formats will require you to have what is called a CUE sheet. However, all is not lost if you do not have one. If you have a ISO/MP3 image and don’t have a CUE sheet […]

Essential Imports: The Best Import Dreamcast Games

As we all know, Sega gave up fairly early on its last two consoles. In the case of both the Dreamcast and the Saturn, many of the great games came at the end of their life and many didn’t make it to the US. Here’s a rundown on ones that we missed out here in […]

How To Play Imports on a Dreamcast

If you’re looking to play imports on your Dreamcast (see the DC’s best import games), you have a few options. If you want a flawless importing experience and are willing to tinker with your Dreamcast’s guts, a modchip may be your best option. I have not installed a Dreamcast modchip myself, but it is supposedly […]

New PS2 Gunstar Heroes: Treasure Box Details

As I reported earlier, the PS2 will be getting an awesome game collection from Sega and Treasure. Vol. 25 of the Sega Ages 2500 series (aka The Treasure Box) for the PS2 will include Gunstar Heroes, Dynamite Headdy, and Alien Soldier. (Read more about these games on my original post). I’ve just learned of some […]

Meta-Review: Dragon Force for PS2

Radiant Silvergun and Panzer Dragoon Saga aren’t the only Saturn games that command a high premium on eBay. Dragon Force was one of the best RPGs on Sega’s 32-bit system. Fortunately, Sega is re-releasing Dragon Force on the PS2 with enhanced graphics and sound (without butchering it like many of their other updates). The remake […]

Review: Herzog Zwei – Sega Genesis/MegaDrive

Combining elements of real-time strategy and resource management into a shmup, Herzog Zwei (“Duke 2” in German) is possibly one of the best games on Sega’s 16-bit powerhouse. Herzog Zwei is a two-player game in which the object is to destroy the enemy’s base. To accomplish this, the player was able to construct an assortment […]

Sega Genesis/MegaDrive Mini Hack

I was wondering how long it would take somebody to take one of those “TV Games” and hack it to play other classics… Silver and Kotomi have taken the Sega Genesis/MegaDrive TV Game (like this one on which originally only had a handful of games built into it and turned it into what appears […]

Review: Sonic CD for the Sega CD

Although it may not mean a whole lot, Sonic CD is definitely one of the top 5 games on the Sega CD. If you owned a Sega CD, you probably bought Sonic CD. It is a traditional Sonic game featuring colorful graphics, a quality soundtrack, smooth control, a vicious sense of speed, and wicked-cool level […]

Review: Die Hard Arcade – Saturn

Die Hard Arcade (aka Dynamite Deka in Japan) is, of course, loosely based on the first Die Hard movie, with some major character and plot changes thrown in to fit the video game medium. In DHA, you start on the roof of the Nakatomi Building and work your way up and down the building in […]

Make Your Own USB Saturn Controller

There has been quite a buzz from the Sega’s USB Saturn controllers. Even though they are very cool products, there are a number of people that would like to take their exisiting Saturn controllers and hack into their own USB controller. There is an excellent guide at that walks you through the entire process […]

Review: Comix Zone – Genesis/Megadrive

This colorful beat-em-up was released near the end of the life of the Sega Genesis (and came in those cruddy cardboard boxes). Instead of featuring a hero that simply walked down a city street and beat people up, Comix Zone had the game’s hero sucked into his own comic book creation and battle his own […]
