Plants vs. Zombies running on the SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive

This weekend at the PAX Australia event, fans of the game ‘Plants vs. Zombies‘ got to see a weird version of their favorite PopCap tower defense game. The game running on the SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive.

Penny Arcade got a chance to play the game and posted the above video of it in action. Dave Cudrev from Retrospekt said he bought the game from the creator, who is a Russian coder. His hobby was rebuilding games and selling them on Ebay.

He purchased the game for $30 dollars, with no box or manual. Other games the coder has re-worked include Darkwing Duck and Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers for the Genesis/Mega Drive. I have to be honest, this would be a cool conversational piece of software to have.

The Sega Forums Return

Yep the official Sega forums are finally back online after a very long time, a month maybe? The blog is yet to return but I suspect it’ll soon be up too.

The blog and forum went down after some douche bag hacked into PlaySega and attempted to steal usernames, passwords and other personal information. Luckily Sega were on the ball and had personal information stored as an encrypted code of some kind. As a result of this the forum passwords are no longer linked to the PlaySega accounts so you will need to reset your password before you can post again.

So yeah, go forth and complain about not getting Shenmue 3 and Sonic’s eyes, mouth, spines, colour or shoes.
