Sega Game Gear Micro poses with a Dreamcast VMU for comparison

As far as retro gaming consoles go, the Game Gear Micro, not "Mini", is probably one of the most peculiar ones out there. It might be the only one that can even be played on the go thanks to its minuscule size. Some, however, might have found it to be ridiculously too teeny for that purpose and a new photo that compares it with Sega's other oddity puts that size into better perspective.

Sonic the Hedgehog movie sequel release confirmed for 2022

Sonic the Hedgehog movie sequel release confirmed for 2022

Sonic the Hedgehog, it seems, has turned into one of the rare video game movie successes. Video game movies generally aren't anything worth writing home about, and after the first trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog dropped - complete with a creepy, almost human-like Sonic - it seemed that this movie wouldn't be either. Following a period of some intensely negative feedback, Paramount delayed the movie as the designers went back to the drawing board to change Sonic's design to something a little more familiar.

Sega Genesis Mini Amazon sale cuts price in half

Sega Genesis Mini Amazon sale cuts price in half

When Nintendo launched the NES Classic Edition, it kicked off a retro console craze among game publishers. One of the best retro consoles to come out of this craze was the Sega Genesis Mini, which like the NES Classic and SNES Classic, served up a great library of games backed by solid emulation. The challenge, of course, is that at $80, the Sega Genesis Mini isn't exactly cheap, but if that was your main sticking point with the retro console, you might want to head over to Amazon.

Yes, it may come as a complete surprise to many gamers that Sega actually has a mascot. And, no, it wasn't originally Sonic the Hedgehog whose popularity eventually outgrew the gaming company. The distinction of being Sega's first real mascot belongs to the 80s' Alex Kidd who is, just like many old-school games, making a comeback on modern gaming devices and with modern graphics and new gameplay elements to boot.

Conquering the Backlog Part 5: Retro gaming failures

Conquering the Backlog Part 5: Retro gaming failures

I’m finishing week five of my challenge to complete as many games in my backlog as possible throughout the rest of the year, and like the last few weeks, I haven’t made a ton of progress toward that goal. Some of that is down to Terraria, which I’m slowly working my way through with friends after the Journey’s End update earlier this month, but Terraria isn’t the entire reason. I’ve also been on something of a retro gaming kick this week, and that presents its own challenges when it comes to actually completing games.
