Rizz’s Trailer Park: ‘Murica…and Tokyo…

I’m going to do something a little different. Instead of me tell you about video games and how awesome they are, why don’t I just sit here and show you videos of upcoming attractions?

Our first game is an…uh…well…there’s….America. Whatever is coming to Broforce on October 15th, it’s bound to be filled with explosions, bad guys and, well, America. Because what’s more American than blowing shit up? I know! This hit song!

Project X Zone 2 was announced recently at this year’s Tokyo Game Show and, honestly, it looks like an amazing crossover game that features three amazing companies pitting against each other. Capcom v. SEGA v. Bandai Namco. Look at all the guys in this trailer and tell me you are not excited to team Phoenix Wright with MegaMan and Ken and Ryu teaming up for an amazing final move. Here is their trailer they released for this year’s New York Comic Con

Finally Telltale Games looks to take a game where you can do whatever you want and mold it into a game with a story. This will be one of Telltale’s biggest tasks and, by the trailer, it looks pretty interesting. This is Minecraft: Story Mode: The Order of the Stone.

Join me next week where I’ll post three more trailers coming out.

Finally! A NEW GAME FOR…DREAMCAST?

dreamcast

Sega hasn’t had a system since the Dreamcast came out in 1999.  It featured about 220 games, well make that 221.  Yes, a new Sega Dreamcast game was released today, you can check out the game which is called Redux Dark Matters, here or purchase it for 36,00 euro.  It’s a space shooter game and looks like a mashup of Gradius and Mega Man, I say Mega Man because your ship has a mega buster like blast.  It looks pretty neat and come on, it’s a new game for Dreamcast.  It beats SeaMan, honestly.   Check out the video below to see the game in action!   Would you buy a new game for a system that has been retired?  Let us know in the comments!

 

Shenmue III Is Coming…in Your Dreams

SEGA FANS REJOICE!

SEGA now has the copyright to one of the biggest games that they ever produced, Shenmue III! Oh my God! SEGA is going to release that game with Ryo and…that lady! It’s going to be so good! THE DREAMCAST LIVES! THE DREAMCAST LIVES!

In this awesome news, SEGA released a statement with Gamespot:

“Sega has confirmed that the recent application for the trademark of Shenmue III is a fake and is looking into the origins of this application,”

Pretty much saying that “Hey, we know someone has the copyright…but we are not the ones who did it. Please stop talking to us! I don’t know what we’re doing either. Let us all bask in the glory of another shitty Sonic the Hedgehog game” and that someone who copyrights something doesn’t mean that thing is going to be coming. Also, SEGA isn’t even the copyright thing! STOP IT!

So cool your jets and play a game that’s actually good.

3 systems, 1 console

No. This is not some kind of messed up youtube video that’ll get millions of views because you can’t look away.

3rd party hardware maker Innex has announced that at E3 they will be releasing what i will now be referring to as the Super Gensis System, but is actually called the Super Retro 3.

Super Retro 3

The console as you can see will allow you to use one console at the 70 dollar price tag will allow you to play Sega, NES, and SNES all in one convienant location. and for an extra 20 spot you can add the adapter cart that will allow you to play Gameboy games on the Super Retro 3.

Now, im aware of the nintendo dual systems and hand held 3rd party hardware but a system that allows you to play the 3 on 1 system is rather cool. Being debuted at this years E3 and will be available for sale shortly after that on their website. http://www.innexinc.com

is this something that you’d invest in to save precious hook up space or is it not worth it? Let us know in the comments below!

Wreck-It Ralph is Already Game Jumping

With the recent release of Wreck-It Ralph to movie theaters, it has brought attention to the art of “game jumping”. That is where a character in one game goes to a totally different game and is a playable character in those games.

Wreck-It Ralph has his first real adventure in the world of game jumping as he is a playable driver in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed!

Sidenote: Thank you Ralph for finally saying what we’re all thinking…Why is Sonic in a car?

I hope this is a theme in every game, to be honest. I want to see Ralph jump in to other games, as well. Imagine popping in your copy of Assassin’s Creed 3 and having a hooded Ralph stab people with hidden blades or in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 having Ralph fight off waves of zombies in Nuketown. The scenarios are endless, thank you SEGA for showing us this…

 

 

Now make a better Sonic game, please?

What games would you like to see Wreck-It Ralph jump in? Leave it in the comments below.

 

Avengers Assemble…for a video game!

According to G4, The Avengers may be coming to a console near you! Rumored to be titled “Avengers: Battle for Earth” Will the Avengers assembling for a video game break the stereotypical movie games are bad scenario? Time will tell but I hope it’s more like The Incredible Hulk game by Radical Entertainment than the Iron Man game from Sega. What do you think of the possibilieties of an Avengers Game? or movie games in general? Let us know in the comments!

SEGA Lays-off Employees and Stop Production on Games

SAY-GAAAAAAAAAAA!

 

In order to stop the bleeding from a loss of 7.1 billion yen (or roughly 8.5 billion dollars), SEGA is going to have to shrink the company. This means that there will be some major cuts coming in the next few months and, obviously, would put a halt to many games that SEGA has already announced production for.

 

 

SEGA, before the news of this $8.5 billion cut was announced, has already announced the production of the PC-only game Binary Domain and platform games such as the Olympic game London 2012, Virtua Fighter 5: The Final Showdown, Jet Set Radio, Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 2, Anarchy Reigns, Aliens: Colonial Marines, Phantasy Star Online 2, Super Monkey Ball: Banana Splitz, Doctor Who: The Adventure Games (Someone check on BobbyFJTown), Yakuza 5 and (one of the best named games I’ve ever heard) Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Death Rabbit.

 

You already know from the list I just mentioned, which games are safe. I’m pretty sure the fact that the Olympics are once every four years will allow production to continue on London 2012. And SEGA isn’t going to cut their babies of Sonic the Hedgehog, Virtua Fighter and Super Monkey Ball. The wildcard in this is the Yakuza series. I’m not too sure because I, honestly, never played a single minute of Yakuza, so they may be safe. Also, it’s being said that the Aliens series will, probably, be saved.

 

I think games like Phantasy Star Online 2 and Dr. Who may be safe because of their large fan base that they have all around the world, let alone the U.S. Phantasy Star may be saved, Dr. Who (since it is a new game) probably will be put on hold, but not completely scrapped.

 

So, sadly, I’m probably not going to have my dream of reporting on the game Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Death Rabbit.

 

I’m going to have to play my Genesis in remembrance of SEGA’s good moments.

 

In the comments below, what were/are your favorite SEGA games?

3DS to add Game Gear games in March.

Where you a Sega fan boy growing up? Have a crush on Sonic and his trusty multiple tailed friend aptly named Tails? Was it hard for you to turn in that out dated system, sadly putting the devices into a box and hiding them in the closet? Don’t worry I won’t tell your fellow fan boys that you have since switched to another system.

However, if you happened to have picked up the Nintendo 3ds then you may just be in luck! Nintendo announced that coming in March you can go back and relive your golden age in video games. That’s right folks available in March Sega Game Gear games will be available for download on your very one Nintendo 3DS.

The March release will be in Japan to start with Sonic 2, Shinobi, and Dragon Crystal  to start at about 3.75 a piece. Don’t fret it wont be long until those games make their way here to the good ol’ us of a. 

Game 93: Sonic the Hedgehog 2

Sonic the Hedgehog 2
Sega
1992

After the huge success of Sonic the Hedgehog and the release of the Sega Masoct Sonic, Sega went right back to work, giving the sega fans what they wanted. A Sequel. Now unlike other posts in which ive stated that the company destroyed the series or overdid it with a sequel right away, Sega did not. Sega did it right.

Although this time Sonic did not come alone. This time Sonic brought along a new friend, Miles “Tails” Prower. The player can select how they want to play the game, As Sonic or Tails alone, or have tails following Sonic.

The game introduces a new move and bigger levels. The move is the famous Super Sonic Spin Dash. which allows sonic to curl up in a ball and charge up speed to allow him to reach a high platform or speed through a part of the level defeating enemies on the way.

Once again, Dr. Robotnik is after the Chaos Emeralds so that he can power his new weapon the Death Egg. The bonus rounds in the game have changed too. instead of the 360 rotating levels they are now halfpipe races in which Sonic must avoid obstacles and collect the rings. If he reaches the end he collects the emerald and next time can play the next bonus level. if the player fails he must redo this one the next time he qualifies.

Once again the Chaos Emeralds have no real effect on the outcome of the game, they merely change the story line and alter the way Sonic wins.

Chachi Says: When done right sequels are awesome. This is one of those times. The only thing lacking in this game is the excuse for two player which is the bonus level as a race.

Game 92: Sonic the Hedgehog

Sonic The Hedgehog
Sega
1991

In the ’90s there were 2 main consoles much like today, just different companies. They were constantly fighting for control of the market and until 1991 one of them had dominated the home gaming market. Nintendo had been on top since 1985. With the original nes and introduction of Mario they owned it all.

In 1991 Sega decided to take a page from Nintendo’s book. They wanted to create a character that would not only star in games but could be the face of the company. Sonic was their hedgehog.

So Sonic is a hedgehog(blue in case you didnt catch that). Who lives on South island with all his animal friends. When he encounters Dr. Robotnik and discover his evil intentions to collect the Chaos Emeralds and take over the world. The Doc hopes to accomplish this by turning animals into robots to do his bidding. Sonic has different plans though and sets out across the the worlds different zones to stop this from happening.

Sonic goes through 6 levels split up into 3 acts avoiding obstacles and “badniks” freeing animals and defeating the Doc at the end of each level. using his speed and the spin move sonic can jump spikes and pits and defeat the robots therefore freeing the robot. The goal? get the 6 Chaos Emeralds so that Dr. Robotnik cannot.

One of the interesting facts of this game is that the  Emeralds are not rewards for beating Dr. Robotnik at the end of the level. In fact in order to accomplish and see the “Good Ending” of the game. In order to get the emeralds, you must collect golden rings which serve dual purposes in the game. Carrying at least one ring will stop you from losing a life if you are hit by a robot. However 100 rings give you an extra life, but if you finish act 1 or 2 of any level with at least 50 rings you can go to the Special stage.

The special stage is a 360 rotating maze that allows Sonic to collect rings and locate the emeralds. Hitting a goal block however will end this chance. These are also the only place in the game to collect continues to use in case you lose all your lives.

Beat Dr. Robotnik and save your animal friends!

Chachi Says: As a nintendo fan i didnt fall for the sonic ploy at first. Nor did my father allow me too, always making sure nintendo was in our house. However the game is good. Fun to play and has a high replay value.
