Light Start – Sega Genesis Mini, Shelley the self-driving Audi, Swamp Thing, and Valve Index

This week on Light Start, we have a small games console, a self-driving car, a Swamp Thing, and Valve's own version of virtual reality.

Streets of Rage 4 takes us back to the arcade in newest teaser

It’s the sequel we never ever expected to see. Streets of Rage is returning after almost 25 years with Streets of Rage 4. We were mighty excited the hear that Dotemu is sending us back in time with Streets 4 and the newest teaser hasn’t changed things at all. In fact, we’ve gone from the old Sega consoles all the way back to the arcade. The kind that used to run on silver 20c pie...[Read More]

We’ve been waiting nearly a quarter century for Streets of Rage 4

If you’re old enough to remember the Streets of Rage series, odds are you’re… pretty old. Over 30 still counts as old these days, right? Well, if you do have memories of this side-scrolling beat-em-up series then you probably remember the Sega Megadrive (or Genesis, depending on where you sourced your gaming hardware) and blowing on cartridges to ‘make them work’. Wou...[Read More]

Need some sneakers for your Sonic cosplay? Puma has you covered

The Sonic the Hedgehog fandom is one of the most maligned on the internet (look up some Sonic OC, if you’re feeling edgy) but even they deserve something nice now and again. Puma has a little gift for them, and regular sneaker fans who just happen to have some Sega nostalgia, in the shape of two pairs of Sonic-themed sneakers: the  RS-0 Sonic and the RS-0 Dr. Eggman. The Sonic the Hedgehog i...[Read More]

Light Start – Mega Drive Mini, gold iPhone X, Apple’s leaks, and Underworld Ascendant

Sega announced the Mega Drive Mini (or the Genesis Mini, if that makes you feel better) Sonic. Sonic 2. Mortal Kombat 2. That weird Dragon Ball Z game. A whole list of other games involving robots and strange animation and other unusual stuff you don’t see much these days. Those were the heady days of the Sega Genesis, from a time when we had no idea that you could play a console game off a ...[Read More]

Sonic Mania — After two decades of mediocrity, the ‘hog is finally back on track

Are you sure we’re not back in the ‘90s? With everyone playing Crash Bandicoot, Wipeout and a spiritual Banjo-Kazooie successor, we’re starting to wonder whether we somehow passed out in a DeLorean during the New Year’s celebrations. Most interesting of all these retro rebirths, though, is Sonic the Hedgehog. He was one of the biggest stars of the decade, but ever since? He crashed harder th...[Read More]

Drop everything and download: Sega Forever

Remember those amazing Sega games you used to play? Now they’re back for Android and iOS! In truth, they never really went away – ever since emulation became a thing, owners of old games have recognised the money to be made in old rope. But Sega Forever is a new rallying cry, and reportedly the start of something big – an endlessly growing collection of retro hits aiming to hurl you back to the ha...[Read More]

Light Start — Apple camera advice, RIP MP3, Netflix without roots, and retro Knuckles

Apple wants you to get better at iPhone photography, posts lessons on YouTube Apple wants you to take more photographs using your iPhone 7 and they’re perhaps a little concerned that you’re not holding it correctly or something. So they’ve come out with a whole series of videos that are designed to improve your point-and-shoot skills. Covering everything from selfies to sunset, A...[Read More]

Everything, including new Sonic Forces footage, is trying to return us to the 90s

The mid-90s in South Africa were a heady time, especially if you were a kid. The country had just gotten proper democracy, and that was awesome all round, but it’d also gotten video games, internet access, and some of the best cartoons ever seen on TV. And now it seems that the world is trying to return to those halcyon days. The most recent culprit is Sonic Forces, the new Sonic title from ...[Read More]

Yakuza 0 – Going back to where it all began

SEGA’s Yakuza series of games has been good for a very long time but it’s only with the release of Yakuza 0 that this serious(ish) tale of one man’s involvement with the Yakuza has become properly accessible. The first two games in the series launched on the PlayStation 2, while the third (and the other sequels, including the zombie-themed Of The End) appeared on the PlayStation ...[Read More]

The Sega Genesis has gone back into production

Sega’s Genesis (or the MegaDrive, if you’re a certain type of gamer) is coming back almost thirty years after first launching. It’s going into production, with Sega’s blessing, in Brazil, a country that is still rather fond of older gaming hardware. The cartridge-taking console was first launched in 1989 (yeah, it’s that old) and the new version will be arriving some ...[Read More]

Alien: Isolation – The terrifying game we deserve (PS4)

Survival horror games, it seems, are back in fashion. Whether it’s poking around abandoned asylums in indie hit Outlast, treading carefully through the same stretch of corridor again and again only to be suddenly stopped in your tracks by something horrendous in Silent Hills’ playable teaser, or confronting the restless dead head-on in The Evil Within, it’s clear gamers get a big kick out of feeli...[Read More]
