The Intellivision Flashback and ColecoVision Flashback are both on store shelves now, so Andy Reierson over at our sister site Retrovolve did an educational and entertaining video about what you should expect from each one.
It was around midnight when the front door slammed open. I took a quick look around the room. Kain was sharpening his glowing sword, and Rayne was reading her blogs in the most erotic way possible. I realized that this could mean only one thing.
To celebrate, I figured I’d send you on over to our sister site, Retrovolve, where Andy Reierson has posted a fairly detailed history of Sega’s final home console.
Get your party hats.
These are just some of the things to love about Freedom Planet, a PC game that takes inspiration from the Sega Genesis Sonic the Hedgehog games, and spices things up with a dash of Gunstar Heroes.
Even without the nostalgia, this platformer is one of the most fun games I’ve played in a while (with a controller, anyway). It’s a shame it isn’t being talked about as much as Shovel Knight. Freedom Planet almost borrows too heavily from Sonic and pals — you can spin into a ball, run around loop-de-loops, and control walking, talking animals — but it’s more than that.
The Gunstar Heroes vibe and the attitude that being odd is okay is that “more” part. The mechanical mech mayhem (anyone remember Green?) and the evil dude who wants to take everything over – not to mention the goofy dialogue – really give off the same vibes as the classic Treasure game.
Freedom Planet is a gem that Sega Genesis and platformer fans should check out – goofy voiceovers and all.
I was a young teenager when Resident Evil came out — just young enough to be scared, just old enough to know it was cheesy. Also, just stupid enough to write really bad fan fiction about it, but that’s a subject for a different article.
The game brought me hours of enjoyment, from exploring the mansion to tracking down the different puzzle pieces to trying to see how quickly I could beat it.
