The Dreamcast was a brief but shining aberration in the gaming world. Coming along years after Sega had fallen out of its position as a top-runner in the console market, it represented the company's big attempt to reclaim its former glory.

Sega's next batch of high-definition Dreamcast ports (following Crazy Taxi and Sonic Adventure) is a good reminder of the failed console's eclectic and enduring selection of games. The first has reeled in hundreds of scaly creatures who can only stare vacantly at their captor, mouths agape -- the o...

Certain Sega-friendly elements of the Wii Fanboy blogging staff were super-excited to see Ulala appearing in Samba de Amigo.

Here are the fruits of those promises: a cameo from the galaxy's funkiest news reporter, Ulala, and a special Space Channe...

But, he doesn't exactly say his next project will be on Nintendo's console, either. Such is the pain we're all forced to endure for the moment. Miziguchi's next game will be themed around music, however, providing his old-school fans of his Rez and Space Channel 5 games with some hope that he could ...

Have you always had a dark fantasy about watching Space Channel 5's Ulala play hot, sweaty tennis against Sonic's squeeze Amy Rose? If so, you repulse us, and we think everybody would be more comfortable if you'd just leave. Seriously, there's a back door, just slip out. No, no you can't say goodb...

Unfortunately for those of us who were excited about getting back in the groove with Ulala's Swingin' Report Show, it looks like it may not be. While N-Zone seemed to imply that they'd received an announcement from Sega about a Wii remake of Space Channel 5, a Sega rep told IGN something different. ...

Any gamer would need a heart of blackened teak to not have a soft spot for Sega, and there's arguably no better home for a dyed-in-the-wool Sega fan than the Wii. Over the coming weeks and months, Nintendo's little white box will be hosting a number of updated classic Sega properties, including Ni...

You simply can't barge your way through the throbbing mass of people at the Tokyo Game Show without bumping into video game characters which have somehow manifested in reality. Actually, physically bumping into them isn't recommended, as the ornate headdresses, gargantuan shoulder pads and razor-s...

We've got a little theme going of Tetsuya Mizuguchi providing non-answers to speculation about Wii versions of his most popular franchises. First it was Space Channel 5, and now it's his puzzle game (and first PSP killer app) Lumines. The discussion in this Game Informer interview turned to new m...

Kotaku's Brian Ashcraft interviewed Tetsuya Mizuguchi during a demo of the Xbox Live Arcade version of Rez, and managed to talk about the Wii. We're grateful for this, for two reasons: It allows us to link to this interview about a possible Rez sequel and other general Miz wonderfulness, and ...
