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?

Saito’s main aim with the game was “to keep the same as light and accessible as possible”, the result being a game where players must sort through thousands of colour coded bags, racking up combos and score multipliers.
Although I rarely travel with anything more than hand luggage myself, I’ve always secretly been fascinated by the process of luggage sorting and handling and, from the looks of it, believe that this game would perfectly fill the time spent waiting in airports for gates to be announced and then subsequently opened. Western audiences can download the game directly from the Nintendo eShop now.
I’m sorry listeners, if this episode of The Sega Addicts Kids Table isn’t quite as good as the more recent episodes in terms of audio quality. You see John being the PC gamer that he is just had to have his Diablo 3 fix meaning that throughout the podcast you can hear a faint clicking noise all around us. Click click click. Click click.
But never fear because to make up for that Stevie and Josh (who are being good boys and not playing videogames whilst recording) chip in with conversations about Seaman and Anarchy Reigns. Does this sound better than Diablo 3? Probably not but it’s worth a shot. Click click click. Click click click.

Well, what has actually happened was that Yoot Saito, creator of the Dreamcast cult classic Seaman, posted a picture of the game’s titular creature dressed as Father Christmas on Twitter with the cryptic comment:
it’s time to start thinking about the end of the year
This makes little sense to all but those who took note of February’s very vague hint by Nintendo at a Seaman remake or sequel on the 3DS. So are we looking a new Seaman release this Christmas, or does Yoot Saito simply have a misunderstood sense of humour and a little too much time on his hands? Right now there’s no way to know, but let us know what you think in the comments below, and premature seasons greetings from all of the Sega Addicts staff!
And here you are again! Back for more fun and thrills at The Sega Addicts Kids Table! As you can you can tell from the title of this episode, we talk about our favourite Hollywood movie star! But that’s not all as we’re also joined by Sega Addicts Podcast star Kris Knigge!
Along with Kris is the usual blend of Stevie, John and Josh, so you can rest assured that you are in good company as they (we) talk about the new Jet Set Radio announcements, Seaman for the 3DS and Sonic 4 Episode 2. So snuggle up and relax with us for another journey into Sega podcast heaven!

In a recent feature in Japanese media giant Nikkei’s online magazine on the future of Nintendo, it is mentioned that the Dreamacst classic, Seaman may be coming to the 3DS in some form. In the feature, Nintendo is described as planning to ‘revive’ strong, yet somewhat forgotten, games from other publishers in order to bolster the 3DS game library. It is important to note that Seaman was used only as an example of such a game, and no official announcement of its release has been made.
Since its original release on the Sega Dreamcast in 1999, the game has remained well-known amongst Dreamcast fans for its peculiar, yet in-depth take on the ‘virtual pet’ craze and for its implementation of voice-recognition via the VMU microphone. I unfortunately missed the game the first time around, but feel the game would be exceptionally well suited for a handheld console, especially the 3DS. Any other ‘forgotten’ Sega games that would find a good home on the 3DS? Post your comments below!
Good news listener! John is back! That’s right after two episodes of guests we finally have our beloved third member back. And in this episode we take full advantage of him (not in that way) by quizzing him on his off time.
Also we talk about kids at tables, Seaman, and Renegade Ops. Bored of hearing us talk about the latter? Well I’m sorry but you’ll have to deal with it. Please don’t kill me.
Also be sure to join us next week for a special spooky episode of The Sega Addicts Kids Table! BOO!
Yoot Saito, the mind behind the Dreamcast-classic Seaman, is working on a new game that is going to be part of Guild 01. This project is a collaboration of several videogame producers, like Goichi Suda (No More Heroes) and Yasumi Matsuno (Vagrant Story), for Level 5 on the Nintendo 3DS. His game is a simulation where you take care of the luggage at the airport. This may sound weird, but seriously, what have you been expecting from the maker of Seaman? Anyway, one more game to look forward to on the Nintendo 3DS!
It’s episode 60 and it’s also Mike’s 60th Birthday! What a coincidence! This week we discussed: Rise of Nightmares, House of the Dead: Overkill: Extended Edition: HD: The Revenge: Sometimes They Come Back For More, Seaman, Nail Thongs, and much much more! Well, not that much more actually. A few things here and there.
We’ll be recording episode 60 this week and, as usual, we need your listener questions! It’s a special episode though because it’s Mr. Mike’s birthday. So, in celebration we will be asking Mike some Mike-centric questions randomly throughout the podcast.
What does that mean to you? Well, every legitimate Sega related question you leave in the comments below has to have a second question aimed at Mike. It’s that simple!
