This new hub is set in a bedroom based on the design aesthetics of an "early nineties SEGA fan." There's a CRT on a TV stand with the console hooked up underneath, a bookshelf where you can display all your games, and posters from your favorite SEGA titles. Also, a complete lack of daylight, which perhaps best captures the gaming aesthetics of the day.

Sonic 2, Streets of Rage 2, Gunstar Heroes Coming to 3DSDanny Cowan

These aren't just any old Genesis games, either - they're among the greatest games to ever be released for Sega's 16-bit console. Sega's release slate kicks off in July with the launch of 3D Streets of Rage 2. Considered by many to be one of the best beat-'em-ups of all time, Streets of Rage 2 established the Sega Genesis as a 16-bit powerhouse, delivering massive character sprites, four playable characters, and surprisingly complex brawling mechanics.

Twenty years ago today, the Sega Genesis was released in North America.  Known as the Mega Drive in Japan, the Genesis was a big hit.  The NES was dominant at the time, but that fabled console was a bit long in the tooth.  With the help of truly superb marketing (Sega does what Nintendon't!), and a certain blue hedgehog, the Genesis became Sega's most successful console.  It was also a great way to play co-op with a friend, with many stellar co-op games in the Genesis library.

When I was growing up, I was your stereotypical Nintendo Kid.  Sure, I knew of the Sega systems and I had played them from time to time, but I never owned any of their systems aside from a pair of Game Gears that a well-meaning grandparent sent my brother and I for Christmas.  Knowing this, you would also be able to extrapolate that I grew up playing Contra, the seminal co-op shooter we all know, love and memorized the Konami code for. Why am I bringing up Contra in this review? The reason is simple: Gunstar Heroes ruined Contra for me. The very first time I played this at a friend's house, I knew the game had changed. I couldn't go home again.

Co-Opticast Episode 22: Buy Trine Believe it or not, this episode title is not a paid advertisement. Neither is the podcast. But for as much as we talk about the Trine demo and our enjoyment of it - well you might think Frozen Byte is kicking us a little something.

Ladies and gentlemen, the intertubes are clogged.  They are completely filled with bullets and bosses from Gunstar Heroes.  All the digital Drain-O in the world couldn't save it either, at least, on the PlayStation 3.
