Sonic Generations was a damn fine game. Sonic Unleashed was terrible tease to how a great a modern Sonic title could be without gimmicks.
Some awesome fans took the time to convert the best Sonic Unleashed levels (the daytime ones) and convert them to the much stronger Sonic Generations package:
“A total conversion mod for Sonic Generations on PC. This mod requires the base game installed from Steam. This unofficial project ports most of Sonic Unleashed’s daytime levels from the Xbox 360 version into Sonic Generations on PC. It also includes any improvements that are deemed as necessary to accommodate to the better control scheme, higher resolution graphics, and much smoother framerate.”
That sound brilliant. Now, I have to be on the lookout for a Sonic Generations sale on STEAM.
Hooray! I will totally play this on Wii-U – day 1!
Yes, I’m back, and I promise to post much more regularly! But you don’t care about me, do you? You care about this game. That’s why you are reading this piece of news.
If you were not aware, the Capcom, Sega, Namco, crossover game is coming to Europe, America and Australia later this year! If you are the type who likes to pre-order things then guess what?! You can pre-order Project X zone right now for $39.99 on GameStop in America, $68 on EBGames in Australia, and, err…. I have yet to find a game store where you can pre-order this in England, So you will have to wait a bit longer if you want to Pre-Order this at GAME.
So, tell us. Will you pre-order this game, or will you wait for the prices to go down?
Projects X Zone which features a ton of SEGA characters (including those from Valkyria Chronicles III) is coming to North America in the summer of 2013. It was announced at Namco-Bandai press event. Details are slim at this point but it is coming.
Between this and Fire Emblem there will be a lot of strategy action on my 3DS! I’m stoked. I will pre-order as soon as I can.
Now, SEGA – you see this? Give XSEED the ability to release Valkyria Chronicles III and bring Yakuza 5 over yourselves! Please, pretty please?

It looks like the characters will get progressively dirty as the game progresses. Cool. I can't wait for this one. Darren and I will be online playing co-op on the Xbox 360.
If the Wii-U version turns out to be the best - I may need to pick it up twice.
The PS3 iteration of Project Diva F is not coming the usual “downloadable-only, requires psp version route” but is an actual regular retail disc in Japan/Asia. Pop the disc in and play!
However, as cool as that is – and it isn’t coming to the West – both the game and the fabulous mini Miku controller (pictured above) are available from import retailers such as Buy2, Playasia, and NCSX. The controller costs approx. $160 (though I have seen it for as little as $98).
It has nice big buttons that look to replicate the arcade feeling of the title. It comes in two colors – white and black – however only specific retailers are carrying the white edition. It is a wired controller with a 3m cable. The controller has dimensions of 370 mm x 225 mm x 60 mm. For comparison sake, Hori’s Virtua Fighter arcade stick is 430 mm x 240 mm x 125 mm.
It is also way more affordable than the other iteration of the controller with its huge, light-up buttons that costs a cool $400 bucks and is generally un-importable through most regular sources (at the moment).
Yes, I ordered the mini-controller. But I have two Project Diva titles I can already use it for!
This is not a post about Shenmue 3. But…
Seriously SEGA…so Shenmue is popular enough to be a DLC character for Sonic & SEGA Allstars Racing, popular enough to get a Mega 64 video, and now popular enough to get an epic First 4 Figure…so where is part 3?
Nintendo…pull a Bayonetta and secure this one for the future on the Wii-U. Exclusive…muhahaha!
First 4 Figures are launching an epic Ryo Hazuki statue for 2013. If I have to tell that Ryo is from a Dreamcast series entitled Shenmue – please go flog yourself.
There is currently only a teaser image with no pricing or release date information. It looks sweet. I just may need to get one for the SEGASHIRO office.
Check out the first 4 figure website: here.

There has been little-to-no news about Yakuza 5 heading west. In fact, the most recent happening is that according to TSSZnews, SEGA Blog’s Kellie mentioned that Yakuza 5 was not coming to Europe/North America.
I’m worried that SEGA’s reluctance to announce anything may mean that the game has been given a death sentence outside of Japan. There is even a petition started: here.
It is hard being a core SEGA fan as of late…little to no new announcements. C’mon SEGA, all I want for X-mas is Yakuza 5 beats!
