SEGA Starts to Release Entire Game Library

Now I know what you are thinking, how much per game? Well oddly enough they are free, all you'll need to have as an iOS device or an Android device. Now that doesn't mean that all the games are going to be available day 1. SEGA is going to do an every 2 weeks release type of scenario.

You might be thinking to yourself, but how are they going to make money, everyone needs to make some money, right? Well there is one more catch and that is that there will be advertisements sprinkled around your gaming experience. So the question is do you want a ton of free games that are quality (well most of them, I'm sure there are some games that don't need remembering), but you have to watch advertisements from time to time, or do you just want to shut that door to nostalgia central? Personally, I grew up a Nintendo kid, but I know that there are definitely games out there that appeared on different SEGA consoles that I really like.

343 Industries to Allow Fan-Made Halo Game to Continue

Well isn't this something. In a world where most IP holders are quick to squash out anyone who would dare to mimic their sacred property, you have 343 Industries (basically Microsoft) giving the green light to the developers to continue in their project Installation 01. Now of course there are a couple of rules for the continuation of the project. The first is, of course, that they cannot profit from this game. They cannot accept money for anything that has to do with the game. Any money that is involved in the creation of this project must be directly from those working on the project.

I have to say that I'm surprised, impressed, and hopefully that maybe other entities might be willing to allow fans to put their spin on IPs, as long as they are not profiting from it. Oh and those creators probably want to put feelers out early to the IP holders, just in case.

The SNES Classic Is On Its Way

That's right folks, Nintendo has announced that they will be releasing the long rumored SNES classic console to the good people of the world around the date of September 29th. This is going to run you $80 this time, but the question that you must be asking yourself is, but what do I get for my $80.

  • The SNES Classic "console"
  • 2 wired controllers (5 ft long wires)
  • 21 Games
    • Contra III: The Alien Wars
    • Donkey Kong Country
    • EarthBound
    • Final Fantasy III
    • F-ZERO
    • Kirby Super Star
    • Kirby's Dream Course
    • The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
    • Mega Man X
    • Secret of Mana
    • Star Fox 
    • Star Fox 2 (for the VERY FIRST TIME)
    • Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting
    • Super Castlevania IV
    • Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts
    • Super Mario Kart
    • Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
    • Super Mario World
    • Super Metroid
    • Super Punch-Out!!
    • Yoshi's Island

I'm not going to lie, unlike the NES Classic, this bundle definitely has some titles that hold my interest. The thing is is this enough to get me to buy into this, and the answer is probably going to be no since the titles that interest me I still own. The other thing is that I'm concerned that Nintendo is going to once again pull the rug from under the consumers and for arbitrary reasons cease production at some odd time, while people are still on waiting lists.

Penny Arcade's Automata has Official Pilot Trailer

Some might remember that the guys behind Penny Arcade, on occasion, like to get creative from time to time and go outside of their normal content. One of those times they created a small comic run called Automata. Now I have to be honest I forgot that there was a KickStarter campaign that was created to make a pilot episode for this idea, but apparently it is finally time to show off the episode. Sadly the trailer below is just that, but don't worry this episode will be shown during the SeriesFest in Denver, Colorado on June 29th. So if you are one of those lucky bastards who have a chance to see this, you better go, and you better report back to us on how it is.
