"The challenge will always be there."Muramasa Rebirth review going up almost at the stroke of midnight last night, SEGA week has drawn to a close. I was going to look at the Master System today but with how the views have boomed these past 24 hours or so I thought Id take a break before I review a game tomorrow while Remy soaks up the adulation for his debut review. While I'm kinda sad to see the end of the themed week, Ive enjoyed looking through a lot of my old SEGA stuff, it has given me a new found drive for my SEGA hardware. The Saturn in particular has probably profited the most. Its been plugged in for almost the entire week, except for the Mega Drive playthrough, and the more Ive played of it the more fond Ive become. I'm regularly on EBay now trying to score some more games but the ones I want all sell for silly prices. That's what I get for losing my original Saturn in the first place and now having to replace it all. Playing Desert Strike the other day though gave me the urge to grab a copy of Soviet Strike on the Saturn for £4.99. I don't remember playing that one so I hope its good. Its not just the hardware either. Playing through some of SEGA's current gen offerings again have shown SEGA are not as dead as everyone thinks. Binary Domain & Vanquish are fantastic shooters that I was hoping to do a review on but ended up bundling them both into the same article. I couldn't help but do a post on Yakuza 3 though, its the best SEGA game in years for me. A truly exceptional title. I haven't even started Yakuza 4 yet but I may do later. As expected, Andi's Shemnue post was well recieved and his Fire Pro Wrestling D review for the Dreamcast would have no doubt had a few people smiling as the memories came flooding back. Its one title I may have to try myself at some point. I do have a few regrets myself that I didn't cover certain stuff but there'll be another SEGA week at some point in the future. I did mention doing another themed week at some point, but Andi pretty much died of laughter when I made mention of Atari. That's probably a little too retro I suppose.
