I suppose it only makes sense that one of the most disturbing games in history managed to yield the most freakishly upsetting promotional material I have ever seen. When Sega gave us the awesome nightmare fuel that is Seaman more than a decade ago, they apparently also saw fit to unleash a faux vacuum-packed can of humanoid fish-babies along with it. If that doesn’t sound like the setup for a Goosebumps book, I don’t know what does.
Late last month, one lucky eBayer managed to rid him or herself of this accursed foodstuff, auctioning it off for an impressive $99. While I have to admit that I’d be tempted by any materials Seaman-related (har har har, laugh it up), I can’t imagine seeing this demonic cannibal feast staring back at me from any display shelf. Hell, even if this thing is just relabeled tuna, that means someone is holding on to thirteen-year-old tuna fish. Truly chilling.
Would any of you guys pony up a crisp Benjamin to get your hands on Goosebumps #1999: Curse of the Seaman?

The game collection is available on XBLA and PSN and features the two classic Capcom fighters, Night Warriors: Darkstalkers’ Revenge and Darkstalkers 3, both of which were originally available on the Sega Saturn.

Warning: This episode of The Sega Addicts Kids Table may not be suitable for vegetarians. If you are too much of a wimp to eat meat like the manly Stevie, Josh, and (returning from making a gamejam game which you can find here) John, then you may want to eat some rice or something else instead. However if you are up for a rousing feast of Sega based conversation then tighten your belt as we have a lot on the plate this week!
In this beefy episode the gang discuss the new Sonic game rumours, Aliens: Colonial Marines‘ season pass and John’s new Sunday tradition. Oh and cannibalism! There’s a healthy dose of that in this MP3 too! So don’t fall down the food chain, listen to this podcast instead and join us at the top! It’s delicious up here!

While not about Thaksgiving specifically (whatever that is I unno, I’m British), this episode of The Sega Addicts Kids Table still celebrates the beloved American tradition because Stevie, Josh, and John talk about food for an extended amount of time! And is there really more to Thanksgiving than food? Didn’t think so!
But if the promise of baked bean troubles and ramen mayhem isn’t enough for you then you’ll be thrilled to find out that the gang also sit around the imaginary kids table this week to talk about the recent Project X Zone rumours and the Model2 Collection on XBLA. But it’s mostly about baked beans. What could be more delicious or entertaining?

To promote Yakuza 5 Sega has teamed up with Japanese pub chain Izakaya Hanako to add Yakuza themed food onto the menu from October 30th through December 13th. The dishes were revealed at a press event where journalists could taste the items on the ‘Yakuza 5 Banquet Course’. At the event was Saki Suzuki who actually features in the game as a waitress. When asked about her appearance she replied “I wanted to give my friends a shock by appearing in the game, and I was amazed at how lifelike my CG model was.”
The producer of Yakuza 5 Masa Yokoyama was in attendance and even commented on the cross-promotion with Izakaya Hanako:
When looking for a way to accurately portray the local cultures of each of the 5 cities appearing in the game, I realized that ‘food culture’ was an important aspect of each region.
Izakaya Hanako gives you the chance to eat local specialities from each region all at one place, that’s why I like it. I hope to merge the realms of the game world and reality through our collaboration with Izakaya Hanako.
There was also a lot of other hijinks going on at the event including a t-shirt contest where mail magazine subscribers were given a chance to win a limited edition Yakuza 5 shirt. Overall sounds like a fun way to promote the game which is due for release in Japan on December 6th. Still no word on a Western release, however we will keep you updated and in the know.
To promote the upcoming Yakuza sequel, Sega has teamed up with 5 Japanese noodle stores to give the game some cross-promotion. In the game you will be able to visit these stores which actually exist in the real world. But the promotion doesn’t end at that because Yakuza is also getting it’s own brand of real world ramen which these stores will sell. How does Yakuza themed ramen taste? Well luckily the series creator had a taste of it over at 4Gamer. (Just a heads up, you might want to use google translate on that…)
Want to see how these ramen stores will look in the actual game though? Well all you have to do is hit the jump to find out!
Well here we are. After literally hours of uncertainty the now infamous ‘Hot Dog Pizza Saga’ has been completed. Did I like it? What lengths did I go to to get it? Was it worth all the hype? All these secrets and more are revealed in this 40th installment of The Sega Addicts Kids Table!
You don’t even have to look that far for more as Stevie, John, and Josh also treat you to some game news. What do we think of Kickstarter? What do we make of Yuji Naka’s new iPhone title Monster Buddy? Why is John’s audio so bad in this? Why do I keep asking questions? Just fucking listen to it, then you’ll find out. Jesus you sure are demanding.

So after last week I bet you were all hyped up for today’s hot dog stuffed crust pizza extravaganza! Well I’m sorry to tell you but as the darkest chapter in the ‘Hot Dog Pizza Saga’ I do not get to eat the pizza of my dreams in this episode. However to combat this, me (Stevie), Josh, and John talk about other decadent pizza’s in this fabulous episode of The Sega Addicts Kids Table!
What else do we talk about? Well if Binary Domain‘s PC release and Sonic 4‘s Steam leak interest you, then you’ll be sure to have a great time! And be sure to stay tuned because next week this food themed trilogy concludes, with my reactions of the famous Hot Dog Stuff Crust Pizza with Mustard Drizzle! Oh boy!

Hot dogs in pizza. What more could you want from The Sega Addicts Kids Table? Hell what more could you want from any podcast?
That’s right as you can probably tell in this special episode, not only do Stevie, Josh, and (filling in for John this week) Michael Westgarth talk (and argue) about all the latest games and news, but they also discuss this amazing creation that’s hit the internet by storm. A hot dog pizza stuffed crust pizza. What more could you even need?
If this all sounds way too good to pass up then all you have to do is give it a listen! It’s an even longer show than usual this week which means more fun for you and me! So order up that pizza and..
