Sega Addicts Episode 125- The Final Act

January 12, 2018

This is it, folks. The title says it all. Sega Addicts is closing its doors, and Brett, Stevie, and Scotty are here to discuss everything from beginning to end. The full details are in this episode and on the full post on the site itself. We cannot thank you all…

Sega Addicts Episode 124- Hitch 2 This Time It’s Personal

December 22, 2017

We asked and you answered, or maybe you asked and we answered? It’s a big ol’ mailbag episode! Brett, Nic, and Scotty start out by discussing their personal Game of the Year recommendations and then dive right in to that Scrooge McDuck vault of letters and postcards you sent on…

Sega Addicts Episode 123- Uncle Chuckles

December 8, 2017

Sonic Forces released. Did you know that? Yeah we sorta forgot for a second as well, but then we realized we should talk about it! Woo! Remember Sonic Mania? Crap, well try to forget it. Remember Sonic Generations? Well, try to forget that game too, because we need to talk…

Sega Addicts Episode 122.5- Mortal Kombat Kommentary

November 27, 2017

We interrupt our regularly scheduled podcast… schedule… to bring you a movie commentary! Fire up those VCRs and find your copy of the 1995 gem Mortal Kombat, because TJ, Nic, Brett, and Scotty are here to help you endure some “fine” cinema. That’s right, you get to watch a movie…

Sega Addicts Episode 122- It Lets Ya Do Stuff!

November 10, 2017

This week’s episode the Addicts sorta talk about Sonic 3D Blast. Really though, this is your episode for fun facts about the Sega Nomad, Sonic Adventure 2 Battle, and PlayStation Demo Discs. Elle, Brett, and Scotty also discuss games that they could never sell or hold significant meaning. You can…

Sega Addicts Episode 121- Either way there will be stuffing involved

October 31, 2017

This week the Addicts discuss a cult classic from the beloved Dreamcast: Illbleed. You may wanna bring a spare pair of pants for this one according to a certain incredible commercial. The gang try to figure out what it is about the quirky game that keeps them coming back for…

Sega Addicts Episode 120- Steal His Batteries

October 12, 2017

This week the Addicts get back to the routine and bring in the spooky Sega Genesis classic (?) Haunting Starring Polterguy. We aren’t really sure if anyone was looking for this game while trick-or-treating. But hey, it sure is unique… Joining Elle, Brett, Nic, and Scotty this week is their good…

Sega Addicts Episode 119- The One After The Marathon

September 25, 2017

The Addicts have all had a bit of time to recover from the annual 24-Hour Dreamless Dreamcast Marathon, and are very excited to recap the insanity. This week Elle, Brett, TJ, Pocky X, Scotty, and honorary Sega Addict MegaMatt gather to giggle about the gaming grander they garnered. For the…

Review – Tokyo Xanadu eX+ (PS4/Steam)

December 8, 2017

10 years have passed since a gruesome earthquake destroyed most of the Tokyo suburb named Moriyima. The city has been rebuilt and peace has seemingly been restored, but nothing is as it seems. Kou Tokisaka, a high school student who spends his days doing odd jobs, has a fated encounter…

Review – Sonic Forces

November 14, 2017

It’s hard to believe that Sonic Generations was six years ago. All was right with the Sonic world back then. Classic Sonic had come back, and been done as close to perfect as we could’ve hoped at that time. Bad, overly grimdark stories had seemed to be a thing of…

Review: Bad Apple Wars

October 13, 2017

It seems like visual novels are growing in popularity during recent years, and as someone who tends to enjoy them for their storytelling capabilities if nothing else, that’s a genuinely exciting prospect. Otome games especially have been building momentum in the West, and although they’re still somewhat few and far…

Review – Drive Girls (Vita)

September 28, 2017

Every once in awhile, there comes a concept that’s so outlandish and weird, it just might be crazy enough to work. Fighting games with characters based off of 80’s hair metal bands, RPGs where all the characters are humanoid off-brand video game consoles, what would happen if Japanese history were…

Review – Factotum 90 (PS4/Vita)

September 27, 2017

Since my experience with games such as Portal, The Talos Principle, and even Pneuma: Breath of Life, I have always enjoyed diving into platform-based puzzle games. When Factotum 90 showed up, I was curious since the game is not 2-player, but does use two screens. Couple those screens with a cute…

Review- Rock of Ages 2: Bigger and Boulder

September 5, 2017

Damn it, Atlas, you’ve dropped the ball again! No, not Atlus, Atlas- you know, the Titan from Greek mythology who was condemned to hold the sky up for eternity? That guy. Wait- do you not know who he is? Pull up a seat then, friend, and let’s discuss some art…

Review – Yakuza Kiwami (PS4)

August 28, 2017

The year is 1995, and Kazuma Kiryu is a Yakuza member of the Tojo clan arrested for a murder he didn’t commit. After being in jail for 10 years and kicked out of the Tojo Clan, he returns to the district of Kamurocho. Ten billion yen is missing from the…

Review – Sonic Mania

August 24, 2017

“By the fans, for the fans”. It’s a phrase you hear all the time, but it’s usually followed up by a promising fan project getting C&D’d weeks later. Not in this case. Sonic Mania is the product of a rare event; a company seeing how talented members of a classic…

Goodbye, and Good Night

January 12, 2018

If you’re reading this, then that means we have put the finishing touches on the final episode of the Sega Addicts podcast. Typing those words was a lot harder than I thought it’d be when we made the decision, but alas, it’s true. After nearly eight years of podcasts, articles,…

Extra Life Day Special: No One Enjoys Sonic Adventure 2 Battle

November 3, 2017

Ignore everything Elle said. Sonic Adventure 2 Battle is the stain on the ground below the dumpster fire. Sonic Adventure 2 birthed one of the most unoriginal, unneeded, and unwanted characters in all of Sonic lore: Bio Lizard. Oh wait, no. I meant the other “perfect life form.” But hey,…

Extra Life Day Special: Why Sonic Adventure 2 Battle?

October 31, 2017

I’ve always had a weird relationship with Sega in general.  Though I never owned any Sega console besides the Genesis growing up, my sister and I were able to enjoy a fairly wide variety of Sega games through their presence on Nintendo consoles, the most memorable of which being Sonic…

Marathon Hype: Block #3

September 7, 2017

We’re now officially less than two days from kicking off the Dreamless Dreamcast Marathon. It’s hard to believe that after all this waiting and plotting, the day I depart for Pittsburgh is finally here. In about 9 hours from now, I’ll be meeting up with Scotty, Tom, and AJ to…

Marathon Hype: All About Block #2

September 6, 2017

It’s Wednesday, Hump Day, as the kids on the street call it, and another day closer to the Dreamless Dreamcast Marathon. Several on the staff have already detailed their preparations, or lack thereof, and while I’d like to join them, I don’t have time. After all, I’ve gotta give you…

Marathon Hype: All About Block #1

September 5, 2017

Last week, we revealed the schedule for the 2017 Dreamless Dreamcast Marathon. Needless to say, we’re pretty stoked about the lineup, especially the fact that it has the fingerprints of our fantastic community all over it. Since we’re just under a week away from going live, I thought it’d be…

Marathon Hype: The Schedule

August 31, 2017

While Scotty is trying to figure out Pen Pen Tricelon’s lore, I think it is high time to announce every single game we are playing this year as we raise money for Extra Life! Get pumped, everyone! We have the schedule broken up a little differently this time around, because we…

Marathon Hype: Warp Zone Is Giving You A Dreamcast

August 24, 2017

This week Scotty and I wanted to tell you about our amazing sponsor: Warp Zone! The owner, Carey, is a real stand-up guy, and has donated this year’s prize: One Sega Dreamcast Console. You could win one of my brethren if you watch the 24-Hour Dreamless Dreamcast Marathon for the…
