More Manual Madness & Other Site News

I’ve been gradually adding more Sega game and hardware manuals to the Manuals section. There’s now a Dreamcast page, a Sega 32X page, and a Master System page. You’ll find dozens of manuals for each console, with games from North America, Europe, and Japan covered.

If you’re looking for something specific, then feel free to contact us and send me a request! I have many more to add but wanted to get the most popular ones out of the way first. Mega Drive and Game Gear manuals will be coming shortly!

I’ve also been spending a little bit of time added some games to the site. No new in-depth reviews, but we’ll get there soon enough. New to the site are: Alien Syndrome (GG), Blue Stinger (DC), and GG Aleste II (GG). I’m fairly certain I’ve added more as well. I’ve been keeping busy!

In addition to the Game Gear additions above, I started retooling The Best Sega Game Gear Games page that’s super popular. It’s nowhere near finished, but you can see what the new layout is going to look like in the near future. I’ve got a number of games to add to the list as well after having played more Game Gear games again recently.

On top of all of that, there’s been a lot of miscellaneous tweaks and touches to make the site faster, get indexed by search engines better, and fix broken links or content. As always, you can find the most recent site update news in this forum thread. I’m trying not to fill the main homepage up with every new item that makes it’s way to the site.

Blue Stinger Super Replay T-Shirt Contest

Blue Stinger Super Replay T-Shirt Contest

When Game Informer’s Super Replay show covered Blue Stinger, they held a Blue Stinger Super Replay T-Shirt Contest for their viewers. We thought some of the entries were so cool we wanted to make sure they were archived in multiple places to make sure they don’t disappear one day.

The first two entries below were the contest winners.

The contributing artists were (in order below): Matt Sooby, Brian McClain, Dave Metzger, Jeffrey Galang, Kevin Dimmig, Larry Ash, Less Talk, Matthew Swauger, and Nicholas Gesick.

PlayStation 4 Physical Copy Now Available Via Shenmue 3 Kickstarter

In case you haven’t heard already, a PlayStation 4 physical copy reward has finally been added to the Shenmue 3 Kickstarter. For $60, everyone who has been using the lack of a physical PS4 copy as an excuse not to back it can now put their money where their mouth is!

The Kickstarter got a jolt of pledges following the news. It is currently over $4,270,000 after having lingered around $3.5-3.7 million for what seemed like an eternity. Our bet is that the last few days might see the Kickstarter top out around $5 million, but we would obviously love to see our expectations exceeded.

A mockup of the PS4 physical release can be seen below. There is a strong chance it’s appearance will change before release.

Sonic Dash 2: Sonic Boom Released on Android Market with Little Fanfare

Continuing the current tradition of bringing fans Sonic games the majority of them didn’t ask for and ignoring the game they want is Sonic Dash 2: Sonic Boom for the Android market. It was released without an announcement yesterday on the Android market and is available for download now for free.

This new Sonic Dash features a huge Sonic Boom infusion, with most of the environments being inspired by the cartoon series.

The biggest problem is that a large number of devices that could play the original Sonic Dash are not supported. In fact, a large number of reports of the game not running on a very large number of devices have been published.

If you’re brave enough, you can head on over and see if you can run the game, if you dare!
