Hands-On: Sonic Lost World (Wii U)

In 2013, Sonic returned for another adventure that many hoped would help erase his prior 3D history. Sonic Lost World on the Wii U is a step in the right direction, though it takes a little time to appreciate. It’s not perfect by any means, but there’s enough meat on the bone to make this one 3D Sonic game worth checking out.

Gametec’s Magic Girl gets a second chance on the Genesis, thanks to Super Fighter Team. Translated and bug-fixed, the game is now of the level of quality one would expect from a commercial release. It may be a bit short, but there’s enough action and fun in this cute-’em-up to make it a worthy addition to any Genesis fan’s game library.

New 3D Golf Simulation: Waialae no Kiseki

Still looking for another golf title to try out? Tired of the PGA series and any of the multitude of golf games on the Genesis? Here’s one you probably haven’t tried. Be wary though. It hasn’t aged well visually, and the language barrier may push you away. Still, it’s interesting to find that there are still genres offering new experiences to Western Genesis players, even sports like golf.

Interview: Jerry Momoda (Sega Product Manager)

Jerry Momoda has been fortunate to work at some of the most influential game companies at times when they were either dominating the market or pushing hardware boundaries. With a résumé that includes Nintendo, Atari, and Namco, he was a major force behind the western release of Sega arcade hits like OutRun and Hang-On, as well as Stun Runner for Atari and Tekken at Namco.

Sagaia (Master System)

Taito brought its Darius goodness to both the Genesis and the Master System (outside the U.S.), and the latter turned out to be a very good version. It’s lacking in some areas, but the overall essence of the game still shines through. Fans will want to try and catch this fish and give it a play.

Sega CD Reviews

Demolition Man CD

Demolition Man CD

Break out the Taco Bell! Stallone and Snipes are on your Sega CD, and they’ve got lots of action and shooting to keep you busy. That is, unless you’ve already played the Genesis version. In that case, they’ve got the same game but with some grainy FMV scenes! Still, it’s worth adding to your library, since it’s a very solid action title.

World Class Leaderboard Golf

World Class Leaderboard Golf

Ready for some strokes on the Game Gear? Well, you’re probably better off looking somewhere else. World Class Leaderboard Golf is a bare-bones golf game that only makes a passing attempt at being a simulator. The gameplay is too simplistic, and the presentation is lacking. U.S. Gold scored a bogey with this one.
