So far two Hatsune Miku game to be localized outside of Japan and they have been helping diversify and revitalize the rhythm game genre.

Before Game Freak was known for the Pokemon series they developed Pulseman in 1994. It was a fast paced action platformer and a overlooked gem on the Sega Genesis. Over 20 years later Game Freak and Sega work together once again with Tembo the Badass Elephant. It isn’t often when Game Freak work on something other than Pokemon. Do they have what it takes to get Tembo the Badass Elephant off the ground?
Hatsune Miku and her gang have made a return overseas with a whole new set of music, dancing and costumes. This fast paced, colorful rhythm game brings back the charm rhythm games used to have before Dance Dance Revolution, Gutiar Hero and Rock Band standardized rhythm games in their heyday.

We get a lot of zombie related media to the point where the zombie as ac concept has become boring. There are somethings that can do the zombie well and House of the Dead: Overkill is one game that does and can make it fun at the same time. As a parody of the series Overkill has turned the series from laughably bad to laughably fun. Originally on the Wii the game has been re-released several times on most platforms on at least something you would own.
Our favorite Sarah Palin look-alike makes her triumphant return as a Wii U exclusive. The over-the-top action brawler with one of most unique characters from the last generations is ready to take down even more angels and demons. Is was the long wait worth it?.
Disney is reaching deep into its vault for this one. It’ s not a movie but a video game. Not just any video game but arguably the best Disney game of the 16-bit era. Released in 1990 on the Sega Genesis (Mega Drive), Castle of Illusion was a simple but challenging platformer. It had innovative level design and platforming mechanics and the some of the most memorable music on the Genesis. 23 years later Mickey revisits the castle once more. Will his adventure be just as enjoyable as his first?
There seems to be a bit of retro reviving happening in gaming. Sega has been re-releasing old Dreamcast games on PSN and XBLA while WayForward has been re-imagining old classics for the new generation.
Sonic has been the target of a lot of criticism over the last decade or so with lack luster games, pathetic story and bad gameplay decisions. Not to say that all Sonic games since the Dreamcast have been terrible but there hasn’t been a stand out. Sonic Generations is Sega’s love letter to the fans by bringing old and new Sonic together. Is this the game we’ve been waiting for? A little bit.
A Gamespot interview reveals that Episode 2 will include Tails and Metal Sonic. The interview also mentions that it has reworked the physics and the graphics but until we see more that can mean anything. Sonic Generations had very good 2D gameplay and level design so I am hopeful that Sega can pull it off for Episode 2.
