The MegaDrive Limited Edition

Brazil is known to have some of the biggest Sega fan boys out there in the world. Mainly due to the fact that in Brazil, things typically would have to manufactured inside the country, or else there would be some serious fees for trying to buy stuff from outside the country. That’s where TecToy came in, and in the late 80s manufactured they manufactured the Sega Master System and the MegaDrive to the Brazilian market. Sega was huge in Brazil, as Nintendo and Atari didn’t manufacture their goods inside Brazil, and seeing that Sega allowed the toy company, Tec Toy, to manufacturer their hardware outside of Japan and China, no one else had a spot in Brazil’s Sega heavy games market.

Let’s Play The Silver Case: Part 13 “It’s Pop Quiz Time!”

As we get closer to finishing the Spectrum Episode, we discover that Koichi the whole time knew that Hikaru was dead, and that he was depressed about it.

I then had to do a crazy ass pop quiz, before finding out what really happened. Hiruma, the man who committed suicide, were chasing after Koichi and Hikaru before they got split up and Hikaru was caught between Hiruma and a crossing train. The fear got so much that he suffered a heart attack. What a bummer…

Red Dead Redemption 2 Trailer.

After announcing the game on Tuesday, Rockstar revealed the Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer. It looks to be a very pretty game, but it barely shows any of the characters, or what kind of plot it might have. Though in honesty that might be a good thing because we have to wait a year before this game comes out. As expected the game is coming out on the PS4 and XBox One; there doesn’t seem to be a PC release. However, Rockstar did announce that there will be a way to play Red Dead Redemption (1) on the PC through Sony’s PlayStation Now streaming service. Personally I just wish there was a means to get it properly on the PC through Steam, but at least that’s another game on PlayStation Now that makes the service worth it.

Let’s talk about the Nintendo Switch!

Today, Nintendo finally showed off what their Codename: NX is. It turns out to be a machine named the Nintendo Switch; and as predicted many months ago, it’s a console/portable hybrid system with a detachable controller.

I go over some things such as the controllers that the system has, such as the Joy-Cons (the detachable controllers), the Joy-Con Grip, and the Switch Pro Controller (which I don’t like). I made a few pointers, such as the next Mario game (that I called Super Mario Fiesta) has a two player mode, and that no one is touching the screen, meaning that this system might not use a touch screen at all.

Go ahead and put your opinions about the Nintendo Switch in the comments below!

The Nintendo NX is being revealed today!

After much anticipation for the reveal of Nintendo’s next console, the Code-name: NX. Nintendo has announced this morning that the NX, or what is the NX, will be shown off today at 15:00 GMT. Continue reading

Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming!

rdr2

After a few teasers that Rockstar put out on Facebook and Twitter, fans got excited for a possible new Red Dead game, and it turned out to be true! Rockstar announced Red Dead Redemption 2 today, with a trailer coming out this Thursday.

What’s been said is that the game isn’t a sequel, but a prequel (Why call it Redemption 2 then?) The game will come out on the PS4 and XBox One in 2017, however a few gaming news sites such as IGN have speculated that there might be a chance to play this game on the PC and base their opinion based on the fact that Grand Theft Auto 5 eventually made it onto the PC a year after it’s console launch. Still doesn’t mean anything due to the fact that Redemption still hasn’t got a PC port yet! Rockstar also mentioned that Redemption 2 will come with an online mode named, Red Dead Online.

Let’s Play The Silver Case: Part 12 “Columbo’s got this!”

Yup, I had to cheat again. It turns out that the only way to see the manager of the apartment is to find out that the shutters to the parking lot are locked; you do this by walking into it. Then you can talk to the manager on the ground floor where you can get the keys and we can find Koichi.

Despite the silly Columbo reference in this, Morikawa later on discovers Chizuru off duty, and a little bit of loving embrace happens in an alley… Maybe they were lovers after all huh?

Let’s Play The Silver Case: Part 11 “Have you seen this man!?”

So I become a member of the Heinous Crime Unit in this game. Now I’m a real private dick! And somehow I’m thrown into solving this so-called suicide case on my own. But I get caught up trying to help out a kid find his, ribbit-ing, friend. Issue is, I return the next day and now I have to work out a code written on a piece of paper, and I can’t quite figure it out…

…Urgh…

Will I work this out in the next episode!

Let’s Play Boss!

Here’s an interesting one; a brand new shmup for the Atari 2600! This is Boss, and it’s being made by Twin Galaxies high scorer Dave Vogt. He’s running an IndieGoGo campaign where, if the campaign succeeds, you can get this game on an actual Atari 2600 cart, and a mobile edition of the game. Continue reading

Let’s Play The Silver Case: Part 10 “He sounds like a frog?”

Pressing on to the main story this time, we hear a story about a boy and his friend Hikaru, who apparently sounds like a frog. I had to question why this was the case when the next sentence explains it…

…Urgh…

Anyway, what looks like a suicide takes place, and I’m on the job with Hachisuka at the Typhoon Apartments, the same place where Tokio lives. However I received an email by, Bat (I’m the god-damn Batman…), telling me that Tokio is dangerous, even though I saved him from Kamui and Ayame at the Babylon shopping mall.

What happened with this suicide? And what’s with these kids? We’ll find out!
