Teasers: Watermelon’s Project Y

Teasers: Watermelon’s Project Y

Four long years after the incredible Pier Solar, Watermelon Games has returned with a new Genesis game! Code-named Project Y, this beat-‘em-up looks to offer awesome visuals, lots of characters, and some deep gameplay. Details are sparse, but there’s more than enough to whet your appetite!

Total Football

Total Football

Among the many Genesis soccer games is a title that was never released in North America. Total Football is a competent game that may be worth closer examination, but its quirky control scheme and sub-par feature list may keep more diehard fans glued to their copies of FIFA and Sensible Soccer.

Slam City with Scotty Pippen

Slam City with Scotty Pippen

What do you get when you take the latest multimedia technology and pair it with one of the best basketball players of all time? A complete trainwreck! When people usually think of Scotty Pippen, his rap talents aren’t the first thing to come to mind, and why anyone thought it would be a great idea to have him rap in an 32X FMV game is a puzzle best left to time…
