SEGA Tribute – Don’t Stop Me Now

March 5, 2011


I made this video back in 2007 or so, when I was first learning how to use video editing tools, and that is a little more than obvious. However, I feel my passion for the company and their games is very apparent and overrides most major complaints I have with it. I put a lot of love into this for no real reason other than a thank you to the thousands – Perhaps millions of great games SEGA has made that so much of us all over the world have loved through the years.

The song is “Don’t Stop Me Now” by the band Queen. After the jump is the list of games included in the video, along with the format they were recorded on in their correct order.

Tribute: SEGA2010

January 1, 2011


SEGA released a lot of brilliant games in 2010 full of fun and sexy times. It was a great year to be a fan of the company, and what better way to get excited for the new year than to look back and see just how much they accomplished within just 365 days? We have compiled a montage of just a handful of them, and we hope you enjoy!

The music is a remix of the OutRun song Splash Wave from what is arguably SEGA’s best game from 2010, Bayonetta.

Virtual-On Force is out in Japan

December 22, 2010

Virtual-On Force was released today in Japan and other Asian regions. Two versions were released, the expected standard and a special “Memorial Box” edition. Released in celebration of the series 15th anniversary, the Memorial Box contains a copy of the game, six CDs covering the music from the series and a 140 page artwork booklet spanning the series’ 15 year history. The game is region free and in English and is easily obtainable in any online import retailer, such as Play Asia or NCS. It is unknown whether it is going to get a release outside of Japan and is highly unlikely to get this box even if it is released.

Hit the jump to watch legendary SEGA composer Takenobu Mitsuyoshi unbox the limited edition as well as check out the complete list of achievements.


Virtual-On Force will be region free

December 21, 2010

According to a post on Virtual On Force’s official blog, translated by Mecha Damashii, the game will be localised in the English language when it is released this month in Japan and other Asian regions. Most surprisingly, the game will not have any regional locks, meaning it can be played on an Xbox 360 console from any region in the world. This is excellent news, as the game has yet to be announced for release in the West.
