Typing of the Dead Re-Release

Andriasang.com reports that “Sega is reviving its Typing of the Dead typing tutor program for a new tie-up with Rakuten’s job placement assistance site Minna no Shuushoku Katsudou Nikki.

“A new version of Typing of the Dead will see PC release tomorrow (10/7) at the low price of ¥2,300. While it looks basically like the original Typing of the Dead, the twist comes in the word selection. Sega surveyed Minna no Shuushoku Katsudou Nikki members to collect 3,000 words related to job hunting and job placement. These words are used to fend off zombies in four mini games featured in the game’s ‘Job Hunting Mode.’

“Typing of the Dead was originally released for arcades in 1999, with PC and console versions following the year after. The game is basically just Sega’s House of the Dead light gun game, but instead of blasting at the zombies you type out phrases that appear in front of them.”

Cool. Now someone at Sega of America needs to listen and get that sucker out on Steam in English!

Lazy Sunday

Spent some time making a handful of new pages for some of Sega’s more recent games as you can see on the Multi-platform Games Page. GunBlade NY & LA Machineguns, House of the Dead: Overkill, Madworld, the before-mentioned Super Monkey Ball for 3DS, and Vanquish. All of these games have small opinion pieces, screenshots, streaming movies, and anything else I can dig up on them.

With the multi-platform page starting to fill out, I think it’s time to flesh out another section of Sega’s history. Look for some older games to be highlighted during my next round of free time, whenever that is.

A few new logos found their way into the rotating mix, a couple of wallpapers for the games above and Sonic Colors, as well as a few other small tweaks.
