Final 12 Sega Genesis Mini games revealed: Here’s all 42

Final 12 Sega Genesis Mini games revealed: Here’s all 42

If there's one criticism that can be leveled at the NES Classic and the SNES Classic (aside from the fact that they were hard to find), it's that neither offered enough games given their stellar libraries. The NES Classic only contained 30 titles, while the SNES Classic went even lower with a mere 21. Sega is not looking to make that same mistake with its upcoming Genesis Mini console, as the company today revealed the final 12 games that will ship with the device.

Contra Anniversary Collection detailed: The games list

Contra Anniversary Collection detailed: The games list

It was a strange time in video game history when Contra first hit NES. International rules forbade content of too violent a nature - if it contained humans - and all blood was highly, highly pixelated (no matter where you lived). Now, here in 2019, for the first (official) time ever, Konami's prepared the entire history of one of the most classic running and gunning games of all time.

Internet backlash won: Sonic the Hedgehog movie kicked to 2020

Internet backlash won: Sonic the Hedgehog movie kicked to 2020

Instead of a November 2019 release date, the Sonic the Hedgehog live-action movie will be moved to 2020. This is not the first time a delay of this nature took place in the internet age - but it might be the most important. Because of the less-than-great response given to the first full trailer for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie, it's headed back to the shop for repairs and upgrades.

RIP creepy movie Sonic, 2019-2019

RIP creepy movie Sonic, 2019-2019

Sonic the Hedgehog fans complaining about Sonic the Hedgehog is nothing new. I should know - Sonic the Hedgehog was the very first video game I played when I was a kid, and throughout the years, I've tried to roll with the punches without feeling too bitter about the character's years-long downturn. Sonic fans have learned to accept mediocrity over the past 15 years or so, but it seems that even Sonic's low points couldn't prepare them for the official reveal of the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie.

Sonic the Hedgehog will see a few changes before film premieres

Sonic the Hedgehog will see a few changes before film premieres

Translating video games into the big screen isn't easy, especially if you insist that the translation is a live-action one. The film industry is filled with examples of such attempts, many of which have ended up as box office catastrophes. There are some exceptions, of course, like the recent Detective Pikachu movie, so whose to say a Sonic the Hedgehog film couldn't be just as good. The Internet, however, gave it a big "NO!" and now everyone involved might be scrambling to fix the blue hedgehog's teeth.

Jim Carrey makes Sonic movie trailer a must-view oddity

Jim Carrey makes Sonic movie trailer a must-view oddity

Sonic the Hedgehog is one of the longest-running video game franchises around, but despite that longevity, the series has taken it's share of missteps through the years. Is the upcoming live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie going to be one of those missteps? It's too early to make that call, but the first trailer for the flick has landed and the reactions to it are probably going to be mixed.

During the Sega Fes 2019 event this weekend, Sega announced plans to launch the Sega Genesis Mini globally on September 19.

Sega's classic games seem to be invading a variety of platforms this month. Not only did Sega Genesis Classics launch on the Nintendo Switch last week, but today, an separate compilation called simply Sega Classics is landing on Amazon Fire TV.

Sega Genesis Classics gives Switch a huge gift in December

Sega Genesis Classics gives Switch a huge gift in December

Back in March, Sega announced a new mega compilation of Genesis games called - what else? - Sega Genesis Classics. At the time, the release was only confirmed for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, with a Switch version mysteriously missing from Sega's announcement. Last month, Sega righted that particular wrong by confirming a Switch version of Sega Genesis Classics, and today we're finding out when it will arrive.

Team Sonic Racing delayed into 2019

Team Sonic Racing delayed into 2019

Earlier this year, Sega revealed Team Sonic Racing, a follow-up to 2012's surprisingly excellent Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed. At the time, the company said that Team Sonic Racing would be here by winter, but today we're finding out that isn't actually the case. Sega has pushed Team Sonic Racing's release back into 2019, and given the game's original release schedule, it seems to be a fairly significant delay.
