I gotta say…this has me stumped SEGA fans – I absolutely adore my Genesis copy of Mutant League Hockey…and I can only see more of that happening if Mutant League Football is rekindled. In fact, I’m pretty sure Michael Mendheim would love to do it. Both Mutant League games routinely appear on the “Best of” Genesis lists.
Something about those mid-90s sports titles are so special. Kind of like how the best thing about NHL 13 is the ’94 Anniversary mode.
I always thought of the Mutant League titles as sports games for non-sports game fans. They were bloody and silly and fun. Better yet they always had a much longer shelf life than one year (in fact, I may boot MLH right now).
The game needs a lot of support to get funded but there is an Xbox 360 port planned. The team is asking for $750,000 to make it work. Let’s make it happen…for the love of hockey!
Check out more info about the Mutant League titles: here.
I was kind of holding out hope that River City Ransom Underground would get funded enough to hit the PS4 stretch goal but with one week left to go – I just want the ability to play it!
Hopefully a few of the folks who brought Shantae and Mighty No. 9 to fruition will kick in to this Canadian project. Only 25% left to go to reach the $180,000 goal. Read up on the history of the kunio series: here.
There are tons of options that include t-shirts, cds, and replica boxes. Let’s make happen!
I haven’t written on here recently as I am pissed that SEGA hasn’t handed Yakuza 5 over to Atlus for a Western release or upped the size of Yakuza team for a western release. Nagoshi announced to EDGE that it just isn’t in the works right now: see here. At the current rate of things my PS4 won’t get Yakuza Isshin either.
However, onto other important matters – here is a game we can totally get in the West and is being made right here in Canada – River City Ransom: Underground. I have totally put my money where my mouth is as this is going to be an awesome little title. Hopefully, it gets funded and I get some friends down to take this game for a ride. They are seeking $180,000 with $280,000 allowing for a PS4 edition. A PC game download starts at $15.
If you have never played the original action-rpg…boot up a Wii and download it on the Virtual Console – it is damn fine stuff. I am hoping it will eventually land on home consoles.
Have you ever wanted to play a dancing game similar to Ubisoft’s, Just Dance series while on the go? Well now you can for only $1.99, with Sega’s GO DANCE! for iOS.
This recently released dancing game published by Sega uses your iDevice’s camera to track your dance moves similar to the Xbox Kinnect. GO DANCE! boasts an array of pop and hip hop music, of which you’ve probably never heard of before!
Will this genre of games become popular on iOS now due to GO DANCE! ‘s release? Only time will tell.
So, are you planning on buying this app anytime in the future? Let us know in the comments below!

SEGA struck a deal to a while back to distribute Atlus titles in Japan but now they outright own the company. The purchase is confirmed by Index Holdings and the buying price is 141.6 million or 14 billion yen.
I really excited for this prospect – by owning a boutique videogame label that knows how to turn a profit on its niche titles, hopefully we can see games like Yakuza and Valkyria Chronicles be released in the West in fancy editions with small print runs. Atlus must have a great inhouse translation team, too!
Also, who else wants Persona X Fire Emblem X Valkyria Chronicles? Am I right?! Even Persona X Fire Emblem is technically now half a SEGA game.
In the mood to play some classic 16-bit Sega games, but don’t want to download a emulator. Well you’re in luck!
SSEGA.com has a flash version of every single Genesis game to play for free. Unfortunately You can only play these games with a keyboard and not a Genesis USB controller or any controller for that matter. Also, as this is run using Flash, you will not be able to run these games on a IOS device, though it is possible to run it on a Android device.
So, will you be playing Sega games on this website now, or do you prefer to play them on your good old fashioned Sega Genesis?
If you were surfing around Kotaku earlier this evening perhaps you heard a damn fine A-Capella of Ken’s Theme. Well, I went exploring and found out that the bearded musician has previously created songs from Sonic 2. And they are damn fine.
If you want to support Mr. McGroove – check out his Paetron webpage, where he writes:
“I’m Smooth McGroove and I make video-game a-capella arrangements…As of right now, I do all of my recording at my desk in my living room. It’s not much of a studio. I can’t record at certain times of the day due to traffic noises from outside, people coming and going, etc. One of my long-term goals is to put together my own studio-quality room with sound proofing and better equipment.”
