You can check out the archived livestream split into several videos so you can check out which game and which compilation you’d like to see! Check out how you can continue to play the classics and highlighting the pros and cons of each collection showcased.

The past two decades have given us plenty of ways to play through the old classics. We’ll be taking a look at the different game compilations that celebrated the past two decades of the blue blur.

Change of Programming: Sega Saturn Retro Stream

Due to low friend requests accepted, Retro staff’s scheduling and among several other issues, we’ll be postponing the Community Day Stream for Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. While the numbers are kind of low, make no mistake about it, those of you who sent in friend requests, you guys rock. Seriously. We’ll check back in January to let you know when we’ll reschedule the stream. Especially those of you who are just getting the game for the holidays. If you haven’t already, send a friend request to VidyaRetro on Playstation 3, Xbox 360 or Wii U if you want in on the action.

In the meantime though, we’ll be doing a stream with who we’ve got showcasing a number of Sega Saturn games. Including a number of Sega’s lesser known mascots, some real oddities and more. We’ll be kicking things off around 4PM Central, an hour earlier than originally planned. Hope to see you there for the usual whimsy, banter and of course, the games.

It’s out there.


Sit Back, Relax and Unwind With Sonic 1 Easy Mode

As many of you know, Sonic Jam, the only worthwhile Sonic compilation, has an “easy mode” that removes many of the game’s obstacles, enemies and adds copious amounts of extra platforms and invincibility monitors. It’s great for beginners, but it’s also great for relaxing. So, turn on some smooth jazz and take a nice, leisurely stroll through this classic game.

Easily one of the best LPs I’ve seen of anything. Thanks to H_Hog for posting this video to his Facebook.
