My Life with SEGA celebrates Halloween with Zombie Revenge for the Dreamcast

‘Tis the season to be scary, SEGA fans! That’s why A.J. Rosa of My Life with SEGA is reviewing Zombie Revenge for the SEGA Dreamcast.

Zombie Revenge is a side story of the SEGA arcade smash, The House of the Dead. Point of fact, according to our wiki (SEGA Retro), the working title for Zombie Revenge was Blood Bullet: The House of the Dead Side Story…. Yeeeaaah, no.

Anyway, Zombie Revenge is a beat-’em-up/shooter, similar to Die Hard Arcade (Dynamite Deka). Gamers must punch, kick, shoot, slice and dice their way through the walking dead in order to stop a demented madman from wiping all of mankind off the face of the planet. So, how does this mash-and-bash stack up after 15 years? Turn down the lights and crank up the volume. It’s time to kill.

SEGA Cinema Halloween Special: Sonic the Hedgehog Double Feature

SEGA Cinema has risen from the dead with a spooktacular boogielicious Halloween Special! Okay, so it’s actually not scary at all. Barry and George are joined by Sonic Retro’s David the Lurker to watch two Sonic the Hedgehog cartoons featuring clowns, ghouls, sea monsters, and a half-man half-sponge who lives in the sea. No, it isn’t Spongebob.

First up is Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog‘s “Boogey-Mania”, which plays out like a cross between NiGHTS into Dreams and A Nightmare on Elm Street. And then, interrupting the Sonic cartoons are a compilation of cutscenes from the SEGA Saturn’s Deep Fear and Mr. Bones. Ending the special is the scariest thing of them all, an episode of Sonic Underground titled “The Deepest Fear” in which Sonic faces his fear of water. Don’t worry, he doesn’t drown and the story ends with an awful song. Enjoy the special, and Happy Halloween!

Happy Zalloween from SEGAbits and Sonic Retro

Happy Halloween from your friends at SEGAbits and Sonic Retro! Whether you’re going out trick or treating dressed as Princess Elise (the Third, of course), or are staying in to watch Uwe Boll’s cinematic triumph The House of the Dead, we hope you have one zeck of a night. To celebrate, we’ve carved up a pumpkin to resemble Sonic’s new nemesis Zavok from Sonic Lost World, complete with a stem pony tail and horns.

What are your Halloween plans? Going out, or staying in to enjoy some Typing of the Dead: Overkill and Sonic Lost World? Let us know in the comments below!

SEGA teases that on October 29th, guts will be _______


It looks like SEGA has more in store for October 29th than just the American release of Sonic Lost World. This image saying “On October 29th, guts will be _______” was just posted on Facebook and Twitter by SEGA.

My guess is that it’s something Typing of the Dead related. It better be cause that’s really the best possible outcome I can think of for a teaser like this, “spelled” fits into the blank spot after all. What do you think this could be? Feel free to leave your speculation in the comments. (Hint: it’s probably not Shenmue related.)

Time Eater Pumpkin Says: “Happy Halloween from SEGAbits!”

Happy Halloween! To celebrate the release of Sonic Generations, I thought it would be fitting to carve a Time Eater pumpkin (code name: Peter Peter Pumpkin Time Eater). I carved this baby up over the weekend, during a very bizarre east coast snow storm. Fitting that the city was covered in white the same day that I carved a Time Eater. I’m kicking myself now for not taking a photo of it in the snow, but if I come across a time hole, I’ll make sure to jump back to Saturday to snap the photo. You can’t see it so well in the above shot, but I carved the lid in the shape of a clock gear. After the break, more Time Eater Pumpkin photos!

SEGAbits Halloween Playlist

Believe it or not, the day before Sonic Generations releases there’s a little holiday going on called Halloween. Everybody has their own Halloween traditions, mine focus on pumpkin carving and scary movies. This year I thought I’d mix things up by throwing video games into the mix, specifically five games with a Halloween slant, each played on a different SEGA console. What follows are the five games I’ll be playing over the Halloweekend, and I hope if you have any of them you’ll revisit them as well.

Segabits – Halloween Pumpkin 2010


It’s that time of the year again folks! The night that all kinds of hideous ghouls, creeps and basement dwellers come out to play… And that’s just the Sega fans.

With Halloween come pumpkins and what kind of self respecting Sega fan would we be if we didn’t do a Sega related pumpkin!? This year we decided to base our pumpkin on Puyo Pop. We got some Puyos on there and classic character Carbuncle.

(Note; we even got him a small ruby for his forehead! Now that’s commitment… Even if  it’s plastic.)

Hit the jump for more pictures plus a reminder of last years Pumpkin!
