SEGA Toirettsu Brings Video Game to Men’s Urinal [Video]

SEGA Toirettsu Brings Video Game to Men’s Urinal [Video]

Over the years, there's been all sorts of additions to men's urinals to "help" those using it stay in the urinal, and not make a mess of the floor (or themselves). While there are still some urinals out there that feature cute little designs near the bottom, like that of a bee, it seems that Japan is still having some major issues, and now they're doing what they should have done right from the start: made it a game.

Supreme Court Split over First Amendment Protection of Video Games [In Regards to Californian Law Blocking them]

Supreme Court Split over First Amendment Protection of Video Games [In Regards to Californian Law Blocking them]

This is one of those issues I imagine will be hashed and re-hashed forevermore. Here's one of those bigger times, when the Supreme Court of the US government has a little talk about it. The specific law at hand is one that was both brought up and struck down in 2005: a Californian law that bans those under 18 from buying or renting videogames that appeal to "a deviant or morbid interest in minors." Deputy state attorney general Zackery Morazzini seeks to reinstate that law.

Sega’s Shenmue 3 Could be Coming Eventually

Sega’s Shenmue 3 Could be Coming Eventually

For the gaming community, it's easy to fall in love with one particular title, and get attached to not only the characters, but also the story. For fans of the series Shenmue, which debuted for the Sega Dreamcast years ago, it was easy to become immediately enthralled with the life of Ryo Hazuki, and the search for his father's killer. The original title was a hit on the Dreamcast, but its sequel, Shenmue II, didn't see as much success on Microsoft's original Xbox, so Sega pulled development on the title. But, it looks like the third installment could be a real possibility.

Why Sega has failed me

Why Sega has failed me

I often look back fondly at the “old days” of gaming. It was a time that was marked by innovation, simple gameplay, and companies that were able to strike a chord with consumers through sometimes-corny mascots. One of those companies was Sega. The company’s hedgehog, Sonic, was its answer to Nintendo’s plumber, Mario. And it quickly became a legendary figure that lives on today through several different titles on a number of game consoles. But over the years, Sega made several missteps as a company. It failed to deliver a viable follow-up to the wildly popular Genesis. And its Sega Saturn was arguably one of the worst mistakes in the history of the gaming industry.

RetroN3 game system supports old games and controllers

RetroN3 game system supports old games and controllers

I'm not sure why, but growing up when we change to a new game system at my house we usually had to give away our old system or throw it away. This is the reason my Atari and all the cool games of my youth have disappeared. I remember many hours spent with my SNES and Sega Genesis, but I have nothing but memories left to show for my time spent gaming.

It seems we'll never tire of seeing full-sized consoles refettled into handheld casings, and that's handy since gamers don't seem to tire of attempting such miniturization.  Today's - the handiwork of Bacteria - is the IntoDream, and it takes the venerable SEGA DreamCast and packs it into a handheld with a 5-inch PSone LCD, official PAL DreamCast hardware and joystick from the Nintendo N64.
