If you’re a Sega Addict there’s a good chance you’re a big fan of Toejam & Earl already (which we definitely are), but if you somehow missed the experience all I can tell you is we certainly find it hilarious and we’d love to see it remade. In fantastic news, the creator of that title, Greg Johnson, has a new adventure on its way called Doki-Doki Universe from his new studio HumaNature and it’s coming to PS4, PS3 and Vita.
A multi-generation experience, Johnson intends to make the experience accessible for everybody. The full project is described as a “set of related products that will be released at the same time”, though what we know so far is it will feature a messaging app for mobile devices as well as a “light” version of the client, not providing the full game but giving players the opportunity to travel the universe, socialise and take part in “personality quizzes.” Johnson described the genre as mash as “RPG/Simulation/Interactive Story”, and it seems to be more about the journey than where you end up, following a robot as he travels strange universes in search of his own humanity.
Last week we reported the awesome news that the great Kazuma Kiryu would be available as DLC for the almost-as-great series Hot Shots Golf. If you didn’t believe it, I suppose I couldn’t blame you. But as the video above proves, this unique cameo is more than an extra-late April Fools spoof. Nay, it is indeed real…and freaking awesome.
As you can see, Kazuma brings with him the tongue-in-cheek sense of humor that lent some levity to his home franchise, Yakuza. I even found myself laughing out loud at certain moments in this fun little trailer.
Of course, this sweet bonus is Japan exclusive (surprise, surprise), so this video may be the only taste we may ever get.
…Oh. I made myself sad just now.
It hasn’t been confirmed yet as to what the patch will include, but Steve said not to ”expect any extra tracks or characters though, just before you ask…!” (Well, there goes my hopes for Ryo or Alis anytime soon.)
We should be seeing said patch for PS3 and Xbox 360 next Monday, and a little later for Wii U.

On the heels of a patch meant to rectify many of the glaring glitches that spurred on the apocalyptic Aliens: Colonial Marines debacle, Sega has officially released the first new DLC mode for the game, awkwardly titled “Bug Hunt.”
No, this isn’t a metagame in which you play as a programmer frantically trying to smoke out all of the infuriating blemishes that dragged the campaign into the dirt. Bug Hunt is Colonial Marines’ rendition of a Horde mode, pitting up to four players against wave after wave of xenomorph and human foes. The mode also includes three new maps, and allows players to accumulate in-game currency to purchase upgrades, health, and more.
Those of you who spent the $29.99 asking price for the Colonial Marines Season Pass finally have something to show for it, while other players can get their hands on Bug Hunt if they plop down a heavy $14.99.
Does anybody have enough faith left in this game to fork over another $15 on a mode that frankly should have been included in the first place?
The WiiU’s out, the Playstation 4 has been announced and rumors are that Microsoft has plans to reveal their Xbox 360 successor in the coming months. I may be reaching here but it sounds like this generation is coming to a close and with that, we probably won’t see many more physical Sega releases on the current consoles.
Looking back, Sega fans did get a lot of quality releases from their publisher of choice but unfortunately many of them weren’t that great of successes and many new IPs and series seem to be forgotten and left in the dust as we move onto the new generation. We take a look at 10 of our favorite games this generation that we feel were underplayed and underappreciated and what that means for the games and franchises overall.

A lot of people assume that non-Japanese Hatsune Miku fans simply don’t exist, but if recent polls like the one held by Sumo Digital for Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed DLC characters are accurate, that just isn’t the case.
Sega finally seems to be taking notice of this growing demographic, and are welcoming fans of the Vocaloid icon to come forward on Facebook to voice their support for a localized version of Project Diva F on the PS3. As of this writing, the page has already accrued 18,871 Likes…in just two days. Certainly nothing to scoff at.
Personally, I’m rather indifferent about Hatsune Miku’s games. However, if this game makes its way stateside before the long-awaited Yakuza 5, I will be extremely dissatisfied. And you wouldn’t like me when I’m extremely dissatisfied.
I whine. A lot.
With the official release of Aliens: Colonial Marines coming in just a couple days, Sega has revealed the first big DLC add-on coming for their sci-fi shooter. Labeled “Bug Hunt” (which makes me wish it could have been called “Bug Blasters”), this “Horde”-esque multiplayer mode drops players into three brand new maps inspired by the films, where they battle wave after wave of increasingly difficult xenomorph foes.
This DLC fits in as the first part of the Colonial Marines’ controversial $29.99/2400 MSP Season Pass, which will include three other pieces of additional content for nearly 40% less than if they were purchased individually.
While Sega hasn’t officially announced the price of Bug Hunt, someone on the Gearbox forums recently discovered a Walmart advertisement that listed the mode as having a $14.99 value, as well as a release date of March 19th. Even more interesting is the fact a preorder from Walmart lands you the Bug Hunt add-on for free, effectively depleting a lot of the incentive for paying for the Season Pass in the first place.
