I'm 25, from Luxembourg and write weekly reviews for a Luxembourgish national daily newspaper called 'Letzebuerger Journal' which can be found at www.journal.lu. I'm studying German literature in a Masters degree at the university of Luxembourg and also studied English literature during my Bachelor degree. You can also follow me on Twitter @SvenWohl

Not only do the two consoles look adorable, they make up for one retrotastic (I just made that up!) T-Shirt! I really dig this design… Head to Teefury to get yours!
As recently announced, the huge DLC pack ‘Rise of the Samurai’ for Shogun 2 is now available on Steam. Since my guess is that many of you picked up the game during the recent Steam sale, this campaign might quickly draw your attention to itself.
My odyssey through the second mission of Renegade Ops continues. I’m starting to figure out this character while saying many rude words.
Sega’s marketing department goes once again the rather absurd route when it comes to promoting an upcoming release: House of the Dead Overkill: Extended Cut isn’t only going to feature modern 3D technology, No, it’s also going to have RED-CYAN anaglyphic 3D. Which will hurt your eyes even more than regular 3D. Still, I love the idea behind it!
The international version of the Sonic CD soundtrack will see a release for the blue hedgehog’s 20th anniversary at least in Japan. This would be actually the first time the international version, used in Europe and Japan sees a seperate release and it can be purchansed over at CDJapan. I’m wondering why they aren’t putting it on iTunes or other download platforms though, because I can only imagine that the interest would be huge.
After finishing off the first mission of renegade Ops last week, I now present you the first part of my playthrough of the second mission. It starts in a complete disaster, but witness it yourself!

It sure was a busy week for our review crew! WE have a new hardware review of a Dreamcast VGA cable, Renegade Ops got a raving review, Radiant Silvergun‘s status as a shmup classic got reconfirmed and Rise of Nightmares is a surprise hit! Toss in some new podcast and Let’s Play episodes and you’ve got a pretty solid week. Hit the jump for all the stories!
Remember my feature a few months back where I revisited Sonic 4: Episode 1? Well, guess what, I’m doing pretty much the same thing with Sonic Rush for the Nintendo DS! Hit the jump to find out what I thought about the game years after I first played it!
Before you question my reasoning behind why I put this on a Sega site: Mortal Kombat was more awesome on Sega systems, because the blood was still in there! Now watch Tommy Wiseau, mastermind behind ‘The Room’, play the latest entry in the Mortal Kombat series, called… Mortal Kombat.
I hate modern naming conventions.
And ‘kool’ misspelling for that matter…
The 3DS version of Sonic Generations just isn’t getting enough love. Yesterday alone I posted three videos of the console versions, but videos of the 3DS one are quite rare. This video of Mushroom Hill Zone on the 3DS however prooves that this version also deserves some attention from you!
