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.


Puyo Puyo Arcade will be the first Virtual Console release with online play

February 6, 2011

Puyo Puyo, the 1992 arcade release has been announced for release on the Japanese Virtual Console platform for the Wii console. What is unique is that this version of the title will support online interactions with other players, making it the first game to do so since the Wii’s launch in 2006.

Nintendo had originally stated that none of the Wii Virtual Console releases would have any features added, which had been the standard outside of Pokemon Snap, which allowed the player to send their pictures to the Picture Channel available on Wii. No game since has had any other modifications outside of minimalistic sprite changes in some titles, such as Devil’s Crush for it’s use of a demonic image, and Revenge of Shinobi for it’s inclusion of Spider-Man as an enemy.

The Puyo Puyo (sometimes known as Puyo Pop in English speaking regions) franchise is having it’s 20th anniversary this year, along with Sonic the Hedgehog‘s. It is likely there will be more special releases announced soon. No release outside of Japan has been announced as of yet.
