How well did SEGA’s “OutRun 2019” predict the actual technology of 2019?

The futurists working in entertainment are always letting us down. Back to the Future part II promised us hoverboards and flying cars, but when 2015 rolled around, they were nowhere to be seen.

Review: “Splatterhouse 2” (SEGA Genesis)

Of all the games I’ve owned, sold, repurchased, etc., over the years, I’ve never sold any of my original Splatterhouse games. Why? Because braining demons with blunt objects and watching their unholy essence spray from their freshly-cracked skulls is good ol’ family fun. Wholesome shit, am I right? My personal experience with the Splatterhouse series went like this: Splatterhouse (TG-16 version), Splatterhouse 3, and finally Splatterhouse

No, Saudi Arabia didn’t ban 47 games in a single day, and that’s just the start of the false reporting

I like to give Australians a bit of crap over how miserably their government approaches mature-themed video games, but truth be told, Australia has nothing on the over-the-top nonsense that comes out of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. This week, several Western news outlets reported that the Saudi Arabian government had added 47 games to the list of those banned

Having raised over $150 thousand in less than one week, Cyberfrog is on track to being one of the most successful comic book crowdfunding campaigns to date.
