I’ve loved games for as long as I can remember, and I’ve loved collecting things I don’t need for basically the same amount of time. As you can imagine I’ve wound up with a lot of cool gaming stuff around my house over the years, so I decided to share some of that stuff with you guys! Let’s start with…
Well, you can’t say Sega doesn’t know their audience.
This year’s “well, I guess maybe it could be okay, maybe” Sonic game, Sonic Forces, looked incredibly bland from its reveal trailer, especially next to the deliciously retro Sonic Mania. As someone who’s been burned by the Sonic Cycle more than once, I knew I’d be safe in passing on another “modern” outing by the blue blur.
Then they crammed DeviantArt into the game and suddenly I’m on board. I don’t know why either and it makes me so mad.
Gunstar Heroes, developed by Treasure and released in 1993 for the Sega Genesis is an amazing video game. One of the best ever, to be more specific. In fact, there was a study by world-renowned awesomologist Alejandir P. Feelgüd that found Gunstar Heroes contained more radness per second than had ever been recorded at that time. It has it all: explosions, an endless army of robots to fuel said explosions, customizable weapons, anime art style, solid co-op play and rockin’ 16-bit tunes. It also had awesome bosses with hilarious names. This is their tribute.
