I was hoping for some new revelations about what would be added or modified with the delay, so I was a bit disappointed that it was more of what we already knew.  Still, neat to see each of the racers' vehicles from various angles.

SEGA leaves Japanese arcade management business

SEGA has basically, mostly, sold off its Arcade arcade business to GENDA, a company founded in 2018 to operate arcade rentals, online crane games.
I know its mostly a Japanese thing, but SEGA’s arcade business has been part of its history almost since the start and having them sell off 85% of the shares on the companies 60th Anniversary is a bit bitter.

How SEGA Adapts to Covid-19 Pandemic

(https://media.giphy.com/media/sMvYXLh8fFbCU/giphy.gif)

Quote
I think SEGA pulling 85% out of a business like Amusement Centers is a good thing, while they profited for awhile, that profit had been up and down. Never stable and it continued to shrink.
SEGA pushing more developers and workers into making software titles, especially since they are on the rise in sales and due to COVID-19 a lot more people are playing video games at home; it makes sense to adapt.

Daytona Championship USA
The Wonderful Sunshine State Simulator


(http://segabits.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/source.gif)

Quote
The game features six tracks, all of which are either copies or variations of tracks from previous games.
What I mean by variation, is that all of the three original tracks are mirrored with a different setting, such as the normal track having a sunset theme instead of during the day.
While it does feel like a cheap way to not include any new tracks, the graphics compensate for this.

Mountain racing has a whole new perspective!
In High Velocity you'll power through three gripping courses that are based on actual alpine-styled roads.
You're going for the title of "King of the Mountain" in these unsanctioned events - where speed and timing are the ultimate test of your driving skills !
Buckle up and scream down the tracks in the hottest cars ever to nail a hair-pin turn !

SEGA 60th Anniversary Special Presentation:
Interview with Toshihiro Nagoshi (SEGA CCO)

Quote
Back then, you could work overtime as long as you wanted.
Looking back on it now, there were definitely some pros and cons.
However, for people like me who want to spend all their time doing creative things, I think it was time well spent. There I learned how games are made by working on various titles, and when I had the chance to make one myself, I lost myself in making Daytona USA.

SEGA Talk Podcast: OutRun (1986)

(http://segabits.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/outrun2.png)(http://segabits.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/Outrun1.png)

Quote
Outrun is one of the early games in racing that tried to simulate driving a car by adding the feeling of horsepower, torque, tire traction, and of course drifting.
The game’s main car was a Ferrari Testarossa which wasn’t actually officially licensed by SEGA, thus they had to go to court multiple times after the game was released.

SEGA 60th Anniversary Special Interview
with SEGA Sound Team Composer Hiro


(https://segaretro.org/images/b/b2/GoSegaIconPresentCampaign_140.png)

Quote
Originally Outrun was made with the idea of driving around a course on the west coast of the US, so the music was themed around music that would come out of the speakers of the car, with there being three songs from three different genres.
I was told to make the first song rock and the second song fusion, and to do whatever I wanted for the third song, so I chose Latin music.
That song ended up being Magical Sound Shower, which was 1000% influenced by Naoya Matsuoka’s work.

SEGA Tunes: Outrun 2019’s Victorious and Feel the Beat

Quote
This is the sort of soundtrack you want to listen to when your cruising down a road at 500 miles per hour!
2019 is one of the better examples of Genesis music I’ve heard, but I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised.
Outrun has a heck of a legacy when it comes to video game music, especially since the original game probably has one of the best SEGA arcade soundtracks out there.

Introduce Your Kids to SEGA Racing & Driving Games with "Hot Racers "

(https://i.ibb.co/p1xmkdY/Hot-Racers-Arcade-from-Sega-Amusement.jpg)

Quote
Developed by Sega Amusements, Hot Racers is a fun, kid-friendly racing arcade title for 1-2 players.
The cabinet is designed to look like a cartoonish police car, sporting bold colors and a car-shaped control panel.
The next distinctive feature are the two, vertically mounted HD monitors.
This provides a display for each driver, the player on the left controlling a car, the player on the right controlling a motorcycle.
This different setup also means greater replay value, as kids will want to see how the other vehicle plays after finishing with the first!

For Yakuza: Like A Dragon, you can expect to find arcade units for Space Harrier, Fantasy Zone, OutRun, Super Hang-On, Virtua Fighter 2, and Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown.
Different arcade units within each arcade offer varying difficulties as well, so make sure you pick the right one.
Also, you will have to pay the in-game currency of yen to play, so you cannot actually play infinitely.

‘Faster Than Speed’ is the newest SEGA Dreamcast Atomiswave port

Quote
Here we go, Dreamcast-Talk user MegaVolt85 has blessed us with yet another (I feel like I’ve typed this way too much) Atomiswave arcade port, this time another obscure title: Faster than Speed, an arcade street racing game by Sammy USA from 2004.
Faster than Speed has ‘trick maneuvers’ and ‘Nitro boost’ to beat your opponents.

Happy 8th Anniversary Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed !!!

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed had compelling replay value, really tight gameplay and (of course) an excellent soundtrack of remixed songs.
I had a blast playing it, and I wasn't sure how the developers at Sumo Digital could surpass the quality of this game in a future installment.
I suppose Sega felt the same way, since the Sega All-Stars series has been on hiatus ever since.

Quote
In Japan, it’s definitely Virtua Racing. In addition to the sales numbers, I believe that everyone was able to see the technical capabilities of M2.
But in terms of the number of tweets, Fantasy Zone was actually more popular than Virtua Racing.
For overseas, it’s more diverse. However, in terms of sales, Sonic the Hedgehog was by far the biggest seller.
The second most popular title was OutRun – especially in Europe.

10 Amazing Facts About the Development of Virtua Racing

(http://segabits.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/20190705_054440.jpg)

Quote
8: This title was originally planned around the theme of classic cars, but Formula One racing was very popular internationally at the time, which shaped the end-product to revolve around F1 cars.

9: The game included various in-game background mechanics such as palm trees that dropped their fruit if players collided into them or gates that would open up detours if players went in reverse.

It will be interesting to see whether or not Taxi Chaos can truly capture the charm of the game that inspired it (Crazy Taxi).
Sega owns a patent on Crazy Taxi's core gameplay mechanic, so it seems that developer Team6 Studios would have had to receive a blessing from the company before making Taxi Chaos.

Believe it or not, but only Sega can put giant floating arrows in racing games.
The massive green pointer in hectic cab sim Crazy Taxi seemed like such a smart idea that the Dreamcast developer filed it as a patent.
This is more than likely the reason that you're stuck with GPS-style map screens in Grand Theft Auto, and the incredibly awkward indicator lights in PS2 crime sim The Getaway.

I figured OutRun was more of a "casual drive" game where the racing elements were second to driving. Which is why there is the flock of birds, mountain scenery, view of the oceaon or the occasional dragon that may show up.

Yes, you're right, the article said the basic concept was that of a driving game, and Yu Suzuki loves driving so much.
The allure here is the sensation of enjoying the beautiful scenery in such a way as to seem more like you’re just driving through it, as opposed to actually racing.

"(Katagiri) Yu Suzuki drove a Ferrari 348, a 355, then next he bought a Lamborghini Diablo 6.0.
He gave me a ride in one of his Ferraris, but I don’t think I got to ride in his Lamborghini.
He gave me a ride in a Jaguar or something too."

Limited Run Games releasing an English package version of the SEGA Astro City Mini

The Limited Run version of the SEGA Astro City Mini will only be limited to 3,500 units, which will probably make this version sought after in the collectors market compared to the regular Japanese version.
As far as I know, the SEGA Astro City Mini unit included inside the English packaging is exactly the same as the Japanese retail unit.

Put simply, it’s a more basic version of Sonic Drift where players raced against each other in the S1 Grand Prix mode via network connectivity on Sonic Cafe.
When you’re tired of being pitted against each other, players can also race against the best times on the network in a Time Attack mode.
High scores were uploaded to the Cafe for others players to see and race against.

I miss being a kid and talking to other kids about Midnight Club vs. Need For Speed (around 2003-2007 ish).

The two kids who lived nearby would laugh at me for playing Crazi Taxi while they had Grand Theft Auto games like III, Vice City, and San Andreas. I would have loved to own those back then, but my parents wouldn't let me until I was older.

Now that I'm an adult, none of my current friends play video games that much. I'm just the oddball who tries to brag about video game accomplishments that they don't care about. By they, I mean one. I only have one friend in real life.

But I don't miss the school life.
Have to do homeworks and study... urgh ... especially before the exams.
School was fun only because I met my friends there.
Learning something new in school was also enjoyable I guess, but all those exams made it stressful sometimes.

People come.. People go.
That's how life it is.
And there is nothing wrong with it.
I don't have any real life friends to play game with too now, other than my sons.

Agree with Tom Holland now.
Also Terry Crews for B.D. Joe, but then again he's too old too for that now.

Happy 27 Years Anniversary for OutRunners (Sega Genesis) !

(https://segaretro.org/images/thumb/b/bc/OutRunners_MD_US_Art_Cover.jpg/398px-OutRunners_MD_US_Art_Cover.jpg)

Quote
OutRunners follows a similar format to OutRun, in which the player is tasked with driving across the world within a specified amount of time.
There are, however, twice as many areas as OutRun in OutRunners, as the world is divided into east and west (selectable after the first stage).
Whereas OutRun took place in Europe and Turbo OutRun North America, OutRunners spans the entire globe.

Sega closing iconic Tokyo arcade that’s been in business for almost 30 years

(https://sega.jp/wp-content/uploads/2021/08/210802_3_1.jpg)

Quote
On Monday, the Sega Ikebukuro GiGO arcade announced that it’ll be shutting down, bringing to an end nearly three decades of welcoming gamers, otaku, and fujoshi.
The eight-floor (including basement level) facility opened on July 21, 1993, the same year Sega released such technological marvels as Virtua Fighter, Star Wars Arcade, and Alien 3: The Gun, and with Daytona USA and Virtua Cop arriving in 1994, it must have seemed like the good times were going to last forever.

Happy 19 Years Anniversary for Sega GT 2002 !

(https://segaretro.org/images/b/b8/Segagt2002_title.png)

Quote
Sega GT 2002 features more than 125 current and classic high-performance vehicles that reflect the handling and performance specifications from their real-life counterparts.
Chronicle mode puts you behind the wheel of hot rods from the 60s, 70s, and 80s, while the Quick Battle mode lets you jump right into the action.
The true test, however, lies in Sega GT 2002 mode, in which you must win races and collect enough cash to buy new cars and upgrade the classics

Jiro already have a wife ..

that we would be familiar with more.

Still kinda wonder..
Why his son's outfit isn't as stylish as his father's.

From what the Shinobi wiki said (Yes, there is a Shinobi wiki) that Jiro Musashi was flunged into the future, where ZEEDs evil is law. Thus he wouldn't be around his proper time to make baby Joe.

Wow, guess every games have their own wiki now.
We still don't know whether Jiro Musashi will time travel again, but most likely not come back to his year 1200 timeline.
Who knows later he then went to '70 era and Joe Musashi was born several years later to be ninja in '90s.
Or Joe Musashi is the one who travels from future.
Or may be it's alternate reality, just like Cyber Shinobi.

If you want to talk wiki's, there is a Sega wiki. It's not as good as Sega Retro though but we're trying. I invision the Sega Wiki to be like a "hub" or sort to encourage more traffic to toher wiki's based on Sega franchises that really need the attention.

I guess. Doesn't look like they'll continue from the N3DS game anytime soom. Which is a pity because most mistake it as a bargain bin game. I think it should be rereleased for PC.

They shouldn't have named it just "Shinobi".
Some friends of mine thought it just a remake from past Shinobi game but in 3D.

Wave Master, the company that manages Sega's music, has contacted me and asked me to remove lots of albums related to Sega.
At the end of the day, over 500 albums were removed, including Sonic, OutRun, and others.
Unfortunately, this even included fan made compilation albums for games that have no commercial releases, which, quite frankly, makes absolutely no sense.
If you were wondering why some albums have disappeared on the site, this is why."

Previously, I only found out about all the plot details in the game when I played the game several times or passed levels from today. I am already a more skilled user of the game. I guess you can call me an old-school gamer. I know how much time you need to spend searching for information. Now I read reviews, study the subtleties of games, go to the wiki on games. In addition, on sites like 10roar.com (https://10roar.com), there are many reviews on gaming equipment. Modern hardware must be potent for modern games. Each game is released on an engine for 16GB of RAM.

Back then we don't have access to information as much as today.
That's why we kept playing the game that we already have and master it successfully.

City Connection just recently released Cotton Guardian Force Saturn Tribute that compiled Cotton 2, Cotton Boomerang and Guardian Force on a single cartridge.
The game was, well, not well received due to the emulation being used having input lag, making the games hard to play.
The story would have ended there but, GBATemp user Iisreal2301 figured out a way to load his own SEGA Saturn images onto the game file, basically allowing you to boot up any SEGA Saturn game by tricking the system into thinking its loading a Cotton game!

Just a few days ago, we mused on Twitter about how the promised Classic Sonic content announced back in June for Sonic Racing, the Apple Arcade version of Team Sonic Racing, was nowhere to be seen.
Either a SEGA HARDlight staffer saw our tweet and realized they needed to get to work OR (more likely) it just so happened to be that today was the day they planned to debut the new content.

Picodrive supports Sega Genesis/Mega Drive, Master System, Sega CD, and even 32X games. You can download the RetroArch Picodrive emulator here (https://store.steampowered.com/app/1227460/RetroArch__Picodrive/) on Steam.
There are two other RetroArch emulators on Steam via both the Genesis Plus GX multi-platform emulator and Final Burn Neo, however Picodrive goes a bit further by finally supporting 32X games.
Anyone that was using the play test version of their emulator should migrate over to the mainline Steam release (https://store.steampowered.com/app/1118310/RetroArch/).

- Unreleased Sega Mega Drive port of the arcade game by Atari Games. Port developed and published by Tengen.
- Was shown for the first time at the Winter CES of 1992, and then shown again at the Summer CES that same year.
- Cancelled for unknown reasons, however the game would appear on the SNES in late 1992 developed by another studio.
- Source code for this port was recently discovered, but possibly incomplete. This comes from an original EPROM cartridge.

So, why wasn't this reported at the time, you might ask? Well, Mielke wanted to, but it wasn't quite as easy as that.
"Amazingly, my source was going to let me run this story – or at least wasn't going to stop me – but I was not going to name my source, firstly because I protect my sources, and secondly, they wouldn't have been long for Acclaim if this was in any way connected with them.
Somehow, the managing editor of Gamespot, despite her journalistic credentials which she reminded me of fairly frequently, demanded to name my source or else she was going to kill this story.
Her argument was that without the source, this was basically an unsubstantiated rumour, which didn’t make any sense as they do this in sports and political reporting all the time.

Sega Reboots Crazy Taxi and Jet Set Radio to Chase Fortnite Riches

The new Crazy Taxi has already been in development for over a year and the Tokyo-based entertainment group aims to release it within two to three years, the people said, asking not to be named as the information is not yet public.
It was named alongside Jet Set Radio in Sega’s annual report a year ago on a list of intellectual property assets that Sega wanted to recapitalize by bringing them up to date.
Both new games are in the early stages of creation and could still be canceled, the people said.

Sega Arcade Gallery (GBA) - High-Score SRAM Hack

(https://m.media-amazon.com/images/I/61iRkVfNLTL._SX342_.jpg)

Quote
The Sega Arcade Gallery is a nice compilation of Super Scaler games for the GBA - Space Harrier, After Burner, OutRun, and Super Hang-On. The ports are decently made (except maybe After Burner) but have one huge drawback: they don’t save your high scores.
What’s the point of trying to top the leaderboard in Space Harrier if it resets every time the GBA powers off?

This patch aims to fix that. Now you can record your best times and routes in OutRun!
All four games should save automatically after putting in your initials on the high-score screen.
Also included are the ASM fragments used to implement this.

(By the way, it is possible to barrel roll in After Burner. Hold L and R while moving the D-pad from side to side.)

SEGA’s data analytics for mobile gaming now faster than Sonic

(https://i.ibb.co/pww5Hsb/Sega-Mobile-Games-2.png)

Quote
According to Masaki Takeuchi, Section Manager of Business & Data Analysis Section, Business Planning Department, Game Contents & Service Business Division at SEGA, mobile gaming analysts are now free from the routine work of preparing data reports and enable them to spend more time solving complex analytical challenges.
SEGA introduced Qlik’s solutions, including Qlik Sense, to bring in multiple data sources and automate the creation of routine reports.
With Qlik, analysts can independently collect, process, and analyze the required data. They are also able to incorporate data from external sources without writing complex algorithms.

Three games and two mobile games (but both of them are already closed the server).

Crazy Taxi Tycoon is the same game with Crazy Taxi Gazillionaire, they just changed the name.
It closed the server in 2020, while Crazy Taxi City Rush closed the server in 2021.

Sega Rally Championship 1995 - No VO Hack

This is an xdelta patch for the Playstation 2 port of Sega Rally Championship 1995 ISO file.
It removes all the annoying in-game voice lines from the Announcer/Co-pilot like ‘turn-left’, ‘long-medium-right-turn-maybe’, etc. and other lines related to crashing and driving the wrong way.
It leaves intact the initial 3, 2, 1, Go and the Checkpoint and Finish! lines.

Well.. The genre is different.
It's more like a management game than driving/racing game.
Treat is as a spin-off like Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood or Sonic Battle, which somehow has more detailed story than the main games.

Being a taxi driver can be thirsty work—especially if you’re a crazy cabbie with particularly eccentric driving techniques to get any passenger to their destination in record time!
Keep your head in the game and stay hydrated with the sleek Crazy Taxi mug.

Well.. The genre is different.
It's more like a management game than driving/racing game.
Treat is as a spin-off like Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood or Sonic Battle, which somehow has more detailed story than the main games.
Yeah but would you rather drive around like a adrenaline-high loony or... just manage a Taxi business?

Spinoff is a hit and miss since it's a different genre.
I prefer Persona 5 Striker (action RPG) than every main Persona games (Turn-based RPG).
While I don't like Sonic Spinball,
I love Sonic Battle more than Sonic Adventure 1 & 2 back then.
The gameplay suit my taste and the story's being told nicely.
Emerl's death hit hard more than E-102 Gamma.

I don't mind spinoffs had different genres.
Besides... there's always Crazy Taxi City Rush if we didn't like Crazy Taxi Tycoon.
(At least back then since both games were being delisted already)

I guess so. Regardless of matter of taste or not, at least it tries to be a smörgåsbord of flavour.

SEGA's Virtua Racing - Battle of the Home Ports!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bdFuZ8j7ZMo

Quote
Virtua Racing was Sega's first foray into 3D graphics, following over a decade's worth of pseudo-3D offerings (starting with Turbo) with 2D sprites scaling in real time.
Almost everything in Virtua Racing is rendered with flat-shaded quadrilateral polygons, which means track designs are more complex than in prior Sega racers.
The physics model, however, is not dissimilar to earlier games such as Power Drift - it is impossible to destroy your car, and the only penalty for driving off-road is a significant speed decrease.

You know a bit back I asked if you regard the Shining series in comparison to the Fire Emblem series...

What game/series would you compare/counterpart to F-Zero? Or at least Captain Falcon.

So far, my guess is Power Drift (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_Drift). While it's not sci-fi or cyberpunk racing game it's use of sprites almost on par with the NES Mode 7.

Funnily enough SEGA's counterpart to F-Zero are F-Zero themself.
F-Zero AX (arcade) and F-Zero GX (Gamecube) were developed by SEGA (Amusement Vision).

But if I had to choose from another franchise, I'll probably pick Outrun 2019.
The future theme of the game could always be explored more.
Too bad the game's just one time wonder like Ristar & Burning Rangers.

I did consider this game but I was unsure of it as a Sega game, but it can work with my collage. I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess Phoenix (https://fzero.fandom.com/wiki/Phoenix) was one of Sega's characters. Purely speculation but pulling straws here.

Even though it was probably created by SEGA, in the end it's still on Nintendo franchises.
Same thing with Sonic derivative characters : Freedom Fighters, Scourge the Hedgehog, etc
They should've been belong to SEGA.

I know at least game/series that could be compared/counterparted to Pikmin.

(https://www.abload.de/img/untitled-1atrfr.gif)

In terms of characters, not gameplay.
It's Chuchu Rocket !!!
(there are only 4 games of them though, while Pikmin has 6).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jWP3Yw6p6HI (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jWP3Yw6p6HI)

At least Naka and Miyamoto think so....

Naka:
I was really jealous of Pikmin. I had wanted to make something like that someday.
Actually, I love Lemmings, and I wanted to make a game like that, updated in a more modern style.
But of course, the minute I think that, Miyamoto comes along and beats me to the punch again with Pikmin. (laughs)

Miyamoto: Well, you made ChuChu Rocket!, and that game had a lot of little characters moving all around.

My questions about Genesis Mini 2 shipments were forwarded to Sega of Japan's corporate office, which eventually confirmed that the new miniaturized console was a "Japan-only project" for the company.
"The Sega Genesis Mini 2 could only be produced in small numbers due to the global semiconductor shortage," reads a letter from the Sega president's office, so the company opted to produce a small Western batch of Genesis Mini 2s alongside its order of Mega Drive Mini 2s.
"The number of units for this project makes up around one-tenth of the total for the previous Genesis Mini," the letter states.
