I think we need some more Xs around here. 16 is fine and all,but what if we had 32 of them? This week we play the Sega 32X and Knuckles’ Chaotix. I’m not sure what really happenes while we play this. We get lost, just like Izzy and Ethan did on the way to this recording. Something about that seems very symbolic. I bet Ethan and Izzy are Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the Flying Squirrel in disguise.
Our inner beast finds it’s way to the surface as we play Sonic Unleashed for the Xbox 360. Sonic may be the fastest thing alive, but what happens when he is infected by a mysterious gas from deep below the surface of Mobius? At first he seems unaffected, but after the Blue Blur loses his cool a few times, it become apparent that everything is not alright. Will Chip finish his game of “hide and seek” with the Chaotix and the Hooligans in time to tell Sonic how to jump? Find out today on… wait… some of that might be the comic storyline.
Sega won’t have a huge presence at E3 this year, but they want you to remember not to forget them. They’ve got four games set for demonstration at this year’s E3 gaming blowout. Alien: Isolation hopes to undo the harm caused by Aliens: Colonial Marines. Two Sonic titles in the Sonic Boom series, Rise of Lyric and Shattered Crystal for the Wii U and 3DS respectively and then everyone’s favorite virtual Diva, Miku Hatsune, will be shown off for the PS3 and Vita. For full details on all of these titles head past the break.
Those guys and their Monster Hunter. Whatever. How about a real multiplayer game? This week we play Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II for the GameCube. Sadly, since this was a spur of the moment decision, we couldn’t find the memory card with our high level characters on it. So we just jump in with random characters forgotten by time (and ourselves). MHOG meet PSOG! There can be only one!
Ninja skills are put to the test as we break out Strider II for the Genesis. So this game was released in this country as Journey from Darkness: Strider Returns. However, since Strider II is easier to say, we put that in the title. We kind of stink at this game so we don’t make it very far. What else is new?
This week we have our own Super Bowl as Peter and I go at each other’s throats in Mutant League Football for the Genesis. This one is a nail-biter as both teams have a solid defense with a not-so-solid offense. Who will win as these two giants battle it out in space? Watch and see on this week’s Go Round. Are you ready for a Go Round?!
In a distant land, on a distant planet, in New Jersey, warriors gather to fight for the title of Weaponlord! As they battle, some burst into song while others teleport away in victory. Be careful they must, as the very ground they walk upon is deadly; killer sands, lethal jungles and a demon in a bubble bath. Behold, as we play Weaponlord for the Genesis of Sega.
Soooo, yeah. We played this game and I just watched the video. I still don’t know what this game is all about. It’s weird. You play as Puggsy, I guess anyway. Maybe he is a Puggsy but his name is also Puggsy. Like Yoshi. I really don’t know. Decide for yourself at let me know.
This week’s Go Round is Jammit for the Sega Genesis. Watch as Peter and Will play this bad game as I laugh hysterically. This is one of the better Go Rounds we’ve done it a while.
When Project X Zone was first announced I wasn’t sure what to expect. How were developers from three massive companies going to work together to build a game that made sense using characters from all of their various franchises. At the time I didn’t realize it had already been done before with Namco x Capcom. I would say I was cautiously optimistic about the game leading up to launch, but I can also say that it was well worth the wait.
