Sometimes, games get canceled for a reason, and Burning Fists is a prime example. Even finished, it would have been a less than mediocre fighter, but in its semi-beta state, its almost too poor to warrant playing. Unless you just have to have every Sega CD game and don’t mind playing what is essentially a late beta, stay away!
In 2006, Penn & Teller’s Smoke and Mirrors for Sega CD was finally leaked for public consumption. The much-hyped title only took eleven long years to arrive, having been shelved after publisher Absolute Entertainment went belly up. Despite never seeing a true retail release, it was completely finished (which is why we’re reviewing it) and so begs the question: is it any good? Well, there’s actually more to it than the (in)famous “Bus Ride” segment.
After some serious playtime, Sega-16 has finally reviewed Beggar Prince. We would have covered it sooner, but…well, we were too busy playing! After so long, actually getting a chance to play a fresh Genesis RPG is something that tolerates no interruption, and we’re in this one for the long haul. We know you’re enthralled as well (you did buy it, didn’t you?), but why not hit pause yourself and have a look?
