What happens when an overweight plumber and a giant blue hedgehog take over the “lympics?” Probably something a little like this week’s Go Round of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games for the Wii. We bobsled, we figure skate, we do that rock ice game thingy; everything the “lympics” are known for.
Why is this man called Greendog when he is not green at all? How is he a surfer dude without a surfboard. How is the game kind of cool? Find out in this week’s Go Round of Greendog: The Beached Surfer Dude! for the Sega Genesis.
We pulled a Genesis game off the shelf called Tinhead for this week’s Go Round. I wouldn’t call it a terrible game, it’s just not great. It’s basically Ristar.
Apparently cyborgs don’t like holes in the ground. Who knew? This week’s Go Round is Cyborg Justice for the Genesis.
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.
