17 co-op classics and many more in one fantastic collection

SEGA Genesis Classics Co-Op Review

SEGA Genesis Classics is the latest in a long line of 16-bit game compilations from Sega. That said, it’s the first such title for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and includes many features never before seen in a Sega console collection – including online co-op! With 50 games (17 co-op), this is a great value for classic gaming fans. But th...

Adding online co-op functionality is a great move

Enjoy Many Classic Co-Op Titles in Forthcoming SEGA Genesis Classics

Initially revealed in a tweet that got pulled down (and then, eventually, reposted), SEGA officially announced that they'll be bringing 50 classic Genesis titles to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC this May in a new collection. The SEGA Genesis Classics will not only include a number of great titles from that era, but the ability to play with friends no matter where they may be.

Yeah, that headline confuses me, too

New Genesis/Master Drive Brawler, Paprium, Coming This Fall

Next-gen consoles? Bah! "PC Master Race?" Get out of town! VR?! Don't make me laugh! Everyone knows the hot thing in 2017 is the Sega Genesis/Master Drive system. And everyone who's anyone knows that THE hottest game to get is Paprium. It'll make you question everything you know about games, love, and that poster on your wall that gives you funny feelings.

It's not like we were good enough to make it to the glitch area, anyway.

Rare Replay to Fix 25 Year Old Battletoads Glitch

Here's one for the record books. Battletoads was released in 1991 with a local co-op mode that reminded you why co-op existed. There was just one problem: on level eleven (you know, the one where a rolling lollipop chases you, then you beat it up at the end), a glitch caused the second player's controller to lock up, insta- and perma-death until the next level. Oops.

Could the co-op classic be returning to the modern era?

Phil Spencer Wears a Battletoads Shirt, Speculation Ensues

How many people do you know who own a freaking Battletoads t-shirt? We probably couldn't count them on one hand. That being said, Microsoft's own Phil Spencer was seen rocking a sweet Battletoads t-shirt today at the Windows 10 event. If we know Phil like we think we do, we have a gut feeling we'll see something Battletoads related in t...

Get 45 Sega Genesis Games on PC for Just $10 Through 10/24

Two things we can say about Sega Genesis games: they were really hard by today's standards, and many of them were also great games. Sonic, Streets of Rage, Golden Axe, all still worth playing (though many would prefer the arcade version of Golden Axe available on XBLA). PC gamers have lots of options for playing 16-bit Sega games, chief among them (illegal) emulation and legal emulation, i.e. paying for them. The latter crowd will appreciate the sale going on at a place caled DotEmu then. They've bundled 45 Sega Genesis games at the super-low price of $10 for the next few days. Head past the break for the full list.
