SEGA and Capcom have teamed up to deliver a PlayStation themed Humble Bundle package. Humble Bundle usually caters to the PC gaming crowd but this week we are getting some Japanese publishing goodness. The tiers are as follows
A few days ago SEGA gave out Jet Set Radio, Hell Yeah! and Golden Axe for free as part of their Make War Not Love event. Now is time for phase 2, which means more free SEGA games for us! This time they are giving out the following:
- Binary Domain
- Condemned: Criminal Origins
- Streets of Rage 2
To get the games, visit this page, click “REDEEM PRIZE” enter your email address under the Previous Content banner. You’ll see the instructions “In order to redeem the prize bundle, please enter your email address below.” You will then receive an email asking to add you to a list for the free content. Please allow up to 24 hours for a unique Steam code containing this content to be sent to you.
We are even considering having a SEGAbits game day with Binary Domain, if people are interested in playing online (since its mostly dead now). Let us know what you think about that in the comments.

SEGA has priced off a huge portion of their catalogue on Steam from today until March 30th in a weekend sale. This sale includes great deals like the recent PC port of Valkyria Chronicles for 66% off, Alien: Isolation for 75% off, The Typing of The Dead: Overkill and all of its DLC for 75% off and all Sonic games for 50% off.
If you don’t have any of SEGA’s games on Steam yet and have money to spend, there’s also the SEGA Super Bundle which includes most of SEGA’s games on Steam for $79.99/€69.99/£59.99. And of course Binary Domain is on sale again for 50% off, which you should really buy if you don’t own it yet cause Binary Domain is one of the most underrated gems of the last generation.
SEGA and Humble Bundle have teamed up once again to help charity and sell cheap PC games for the next two weeks. This time around you can get Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, NiGHTS Into Dreams, the Dreamcast Collection and DLC for Total War: Rome II and Football Manager 2015 for any price you want as long as it’s at least $1. If you pay more than the average amount you’ll also get Empire: Total War, Company of Heroes 2 DLC and other games that will be added to the bundle later on. Then there’s the $12 tier, and if you pay more than that you’ll get the standalone Fall of the Samurai expansion for Total War: Shogun 2. Finally, if you pay more than $50 you’ll get a nifty looking Dreamcast t-shirt.
Aside from this bundle, there are also various other SEGA games on sale in the Humble Store. The most notable deal on there probably being Alien: Isolation for 50% off, however that deal is only for today so you have to be quick. Other games on sale we recommend are The Typing of the Dead: Overkill, Warhammer 40K: Space Marine, Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit and of course Binary Domain.

So, what are you picking up?
Today is the launch day for the Playstation 4 in America, many people are grabbing up the ‘next generation’ consoles and soon Playstation 3 will be a relic like the Playstation 2 before it. So I think its the perfect time to remember SEGA’s best Playstation 3 games. This is my personal list, if you want to share your favorites let us know in the comment section!
Binary Domain will be free to US PSN Plus members in the month of November, hopefully this will allow new users to experience the game that was pretty much ignored by many as another ‘Gears of War‘ rip-off.
If you didn’t already know, we here at SEGAbits are big fans of Binary Domain (and Yakuza everything).
Its no doubt that I loved Binary Domain when it was released last year. Don’t believe me? Check out our review. So for this episode of Sequel Saturday, we will talk about what we would want to see changed in Binary Domain 2, if there ever happens to be one in the future.
Last generation might not have been the best time for SEGA fans, the start of 2006 was pretty rocky with SEGA totally ruining the image of Sonic the Hedgehog and releasing a slew of blunders through out the generation. That doesn’t mean that beneath the piles of garbage there wasn’t some great IPs, right? This list will consist of five last generation SEGA IPs (this means that they debuted, brand new on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and/or Wii) that I want to return on next generation consoles (be it Wii U, Xbox One or Playstation 4).
Steam has discounted the price of Binary Domain this week, saving you 75% on the title. If you act before March 25th, you will be able to buy the title for only $6.24. That is pretty cheap for such an underrated game. We loved it, check out our review.
What are you waiting for? Go buy yourself a copy.
If you guys didn’t know, Toshihiro Nagoshi, a developer known for games like Yakuza and Binary Domain was promoted to chief creative officer over at SEGA last year. Now he speaks up on next generation systems, Relic purchase and the future of SEGA games. The Relic buyout was due to SEGA wanting to make games locally, I assume the drama with Gearbox Software has something to do with this decision?
“[The purchase] is based around our objective of getting products locally developed by local studios, but it’s also due to the heavy-hitting RTS titles Relic has. Sega already has The Creative Assembly, which is great at making RTS’, and so we’re becoming one of the best in the world at this genre now. So this purchase was part of our strategy for tackling this genre as well. It’s a well-established one, especially overseas, and having this wealth of experience under our belts makes me really look forward to seeing how the chemistry between the two studios works out. If we have the opportunity to make further purchases that emphasize high creativity, I think you’ll see us aiming for that.” – Toshihiro Nagoshi, Chief Creative Officer at SEGA Japan
He also talked about SEGA’s image, something many readers and even some writers accuse of SEGA of losing.
“I want to think about things from ground zero one more time. That’s tough for our younger staff, but it’s also fun and exciting. That’s what you want the Sega logo to represent: things that seem crazy at first, but really surprise you when they take form. Even if people say ‘Oh, now they’ve done it’ at us sometimes, I don’t want to do away with the expectations that people have had for us since way back. It wouldn’t seem right if Sega acted all firm and conservative, would it? I think I’d like to keep that.”
