Good news, Sega fans! The visitors have voted on their favorite games of this years Tokyo Game Show and Binary Domain has finished on the fourth place, while Phantasy Star Online 2 has finisihed at place nine.
That’s pretty surprising to me, as I didn’t expect a cover based shooter to take such a high spot. Or maybe that’s the Yakuza bonus? On a side note, the only other publisher to have more games on the list than Sega was Capcom.

Many Sonic fans think that Sonic CD is one of the best Sonic games and I would agree with it. With the recent announcement that Sonic CD is heading to every single platform, except the Wii, the game finally seems to get the attention it deserves. Since it is also heading to iOS, we now get the first batch of screenshots and the graphics look as fine as they did on the Sega CD! Hopefully the controls will work a bit better, still having problems playing Sonic 1 and 2 on my iPhone…
Things aren’t exactly slowing down when it comes to Sega, thanks to the Tokyo Game Show and the new video feature Sega-Addicts now has! There have been new reviews on Sonic the Sketchhog and Samurai Bloodshow… Hit the jump for a full list of news, features and of course our podcasts!
I’ve started a new playthrough of Renegade Ops, the brilliant new downloadable title published by Sega! Unlike my last Let’s Play, which was only a two-parter, I’m actually going to blast my way through the entire game, so I hope you guys will enjoy this!
This video comes from a live stream over at Tokyo Game Show and features a live demonstration of Sonic Generations where the soundtrack is performed live. While the quality isn’t all that great, it sure is fun to watch. Jump to the fifth minute to get straight to the action! Also, hit the jump for the second part!
Gaming Palooza went ahead and created this video shwoing off all of the Boot up screens and animations of all the videogame consoles. There are of course a fair share of Sega consoles in there. Which Sega console features your favorite boot up?
The UK and Spain will get two different pre-order boni for Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games on the Wii. The UK will get a free, child-sized T-shirt, while Spain will get a… special tin. Okay… Anyway, the UK pre-order bonus is confirmed for GAME, Gamestation and Gameplay, no info for the Spanish one so far.
This is a Gamespot-Interview with Iizuka, the producer behind Sonic Generations where he talks mostly about the history of Sonic and how it is included in Sonic Generations. It’sfun, with some footage and is definitely fun to watch.
Hatsune Miku is super popular in Japan and Sega sure knows about that. Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai is the first game in the series for the Nintendo 3DS and it sure looks cute in these screens! But don’t be afraid, thanks to Siliconera we also got some news with these screens. It is a rhythm game (no surprise here) that uses a varying amount of buttons depending on the difficulty setting. Instead of falling notes, like in many rhythm games, you have a clock where all the notes are displayed and you only have to input the buttons at the right time. Seems simple enough, I guess.
Not excited about Phantasy Star Online 2 yet? Well, go ahead and check out these screens! They sure look great, don’t they? If that still isn’t enough to raise your attention, there are 20 minutes of actualy gameplay to be found here too! Seriously, the game looks amazing!
