Luke Owen celebrates an important birthday…
Although the console was released in Japan and America in 1989, we here in the UK didn’t get the Sega Mega Drive (or Genesis as it was known in the Us) until November 30th, 2015. So, it’s the consoles 25th birthday today. At least in the UK. Bet you feel old now!
I first got my Mega Drive for Christmas 1991 with Sonic the Hedgehog, Castle of Illusion and Taz-Mania, and it opened my eyes to the world of video games. Prior to that my brother had a Commodore 64, but that was his machine and seeing as he was six years older than me, I never got the chance to play it. But the Mega Drive was mine. And 25 years on, it’s still my favourite video game console. Does its library of games hold up to the Snes or PlayStation? Probably not. But that »

It has been 11 years since audiences were last exposed to the underground terror that is the Graboids. The cult franchise has so far delivered 4 films and an ill-fated TV series. Causing a whole generation of B-Movie fans to question whether or not it is safe to walk on the floor, the franchise returns this year with Tremors 5: Bloodlines.
Originally sprouting onto the big screen in the 1990 surprise cult hit Tremors starring Kevin Bacon, Fred Ward and Finn Carter. The film portrayed the story of a small isolated town in America that becomes terrorised by giant flesh-eating worms. Think Earthworm Jim on a very very bad day. Although the film was not a theatrical success the VHS sales and rentals tripled the film’s box office gross. So lets look at the Tremors story so far….

Blue Suede Goo, Ickybod Clay, and others are returning to our screens as Interplay is remastering Clayfighter...
When Mortal Kombat first arrived on the scene a new breed of fighters emerged. Unlike the fluid, combo-heavy stable of games spearheaded by Street Fighter II, there was a number of slower, clunkier fighters that featured digitised visuals and various unique elements, such as the gore and fatalities of Midway's flagship release.
One of the most unique Mk-style fighters to emerge had to be Interplay's Clayfighter. Developed using real claymation characters and animations, digitized and slapped into the game, Clayfighter was an oddball fighter packed with strange characters and colourful locations.
The cast of characters included the likes of Bad Mr Frosty, Taffy, Helga, Blue Suede Goo, and my own personal favourite, Blob. Each character was themed on various topics, such as Blue Suede Goo's Elvis, Opera singer, Helga, crazy clown, Bonker, and so on. »
