The Sega Addicts Podcast

This week the Addicts get back to the routine and bring in the spooky Sega Genesis classic (?) Haunting Starring Polterguy. We aren't really sure if anyone was looking for this game while trick-or-treating. But hey, it sure is unique...

Joining Elle, Brett, Nic, and Scotty this week is their good buddy Anthony. You may remember him from such great hits as The 24-Hour Dreamless Dreamcast Marathon of 2017, where he became the self-proclaimed Champion of Pen Pen Tricelon.

The Addicts also discuss whether or not one should be able to bypass gameplay to fully enjoy the story/cutscenes in video games. And you beautiful people lend us your opinions on the matter!

Play along at home and get ready for the next Game of the Week: Illbleed on the Sega Dreamcast.

Suggested talking points: love seat, Paperboy, Pen Pen Letterman Jacket, Hit your opponent's balls, Cup Man, Mug Head

The Addicts have all had a bit of time to recover from the annual 24-Hour Dreamless Dreamcast Marathon, and are very excited to recap the insanity. This week Elle, Brett, TJ, Pocky X, Scotty, and honorary Sega Addict MegaMatt gather to giggle about the gaming grander they garnered. For the next two hours, the Addicts recall all 24 hours of the Marathon, which encompassed a total of 37 Dreamcast games and countless smiling faces.

Not only did the Addicts play a crazy amount of games, but with your amazing help they raised over $1,000 for the Pittsburgh Children's Hospital through Extra Life - doubling the money raised last year!

And a special congratulations to Morgs, who will be receiving a complete Dreamcast console courtesy of Warp Zone with a blue VMU and copies of Flogian Bros, and the best fishing games around: Sega Bass Fishing and Soulcalibur.

Again guys, we cannot thank you enough for making this Marathon the best one yet.

Suggested talking points: Sonic Shuffle, Tokyo Bus Guide, Welcome to Japan, Flap Jack Face Slap

On this week's episode of the podcast, everyone's opinion is wrong except for Scotty's since cool people know that Sonic R is the best 3D Sonic game on the Sega Saturn. Sonic R is also worth every penny Scotty paid for it on release day. For some reason, people are willing to pay less than $50 for Sonic R now, and should probably learn the error of their ways before a certain plush anomaly visits them in their sleep.

Oh, and the Addicts also discuss the Do's and Don't's of hidden lore in video games in great length, and why no one wants to do anything with Big the Cat... not in a box, not with socks, no matter the the size of his... clocks?

No podcast next week folks, because we will be knee deep in preparations for the 24-Hour Dreamless Dreamcast Marathon! See you at Twitch on 9.9.17 (Saturday)!

Suggested talking points: Tails Doll, burnt chicken

It was unavoidable, so we did the right thing. This week's Game of the Week is Sonic Mania. Did you expect something else from a Sega fan site? That's just silly. Brett, TJ, Pocky X, and Scotty discuss the good, the bad, and the balls of Sonic Mania this week.

The Addicts also discuss most excellent origin stories and answer some amazing questions from you amazing people! Who knew that Sonic Mania would lead into this much Game Gear discussion?

Otherwise we here at Sega Addicts and Warp Zone are getting pretty pumped for the 24-Hour Dreamless Dreamcast Marathon! And helping out Extra Life! Woo!

Suggested talking points: Night Trap Fiasco, Brett is Oil Ocean Zone, Thrown in a vat, Every Batman Villain, Sonic CD, Panzer Dragoon Style

This week a gaggle of Addicts gather to give a game more internet air time than anyone logically has: Plasma Sword: Nightmare of Bilstein. This Dreamcast game has got it all, or does it? Or does it have too much?

Elle, Pocky, TJ, Nic, Brett AND Scotty also finally get down to why the Dreamcast is so beloved and celebrated. Nic also tries to convince that the Sou- um... the Dreamcast may rise again. That's JUST what a communist would say.

Suggested talking points: Secret Hitler, VMU iPod, Pennies from TJ, First Console, Hellboy Ewok, Green Conehead

This week, TJ Kitsune, Brett the Hatfield and Scotty discuss one of the lesser known, but more obscure Dreamcast launch titles: Blue Stinger. If anyone can save Dinosaur Island, clearly the Addicts are the ones for the job. Or maybe not. You decide?

The Addicts also discuss what can determine or immediately deter their excitement for upcoming games amongst gimmicks, add-ons, or even entire genres. Along with that Questionarium, you awesome people sent in tons of amazing questions that ended up taking up more than half the show! Remember to keep 'em coming through the Discord chat and twitter!

And don't forget we have the annual 24-Hour Dreamless Dreamcast Marathon coming up! You can already donate at Extra Life!

Talking points: The skull of my firstborn child, Survival Horror, Sonic Generations, Retro slave

Who made Smash Bros. before Smash Bros? Of course SEGA did! This week the Addicts discuss a beloved Saturn fighter that not enough people have played: Fighters Megamix. Why not a palm tree fighting a car?

This week's episode kinda turns into a love letter for the Saturn, and the boys couldn't be happier about it.

The Addicts also get way into their top picks for Sega Forever and wonder why SEGA doesn't put Pocky X, Brett, and Scotty in charge of their marketing. Also, would a Dreamcast Mini be worth it? Only if you get dem sports game on it, bro.

Suggested talking points: Fist Kid, Earth Defense Force, Mario can do the jumping

Have you ever wondered what it was like to challenge Death himself? Chakan did it, and the Sega Addicts are here to talk about it! Keeping with the retro Game of the Week theme somehow, Pocky X, The Nic Flair, Brett the Hatfield and ScottyMo discuss another "gem" this week on the Genesis/Mega Drive: Chakan: The Forever Man. And boy howdy do they have some feelings on this retro classic.

The Addicts also discuss what makes a game, "worth it," in terms of price and expectations and get waaaaaay too involved in dipping sauces and Rescue 9-1-1.

Suggested talking points: Bubsy, Too Many Games, Half-priced Seaman, Cringeworthy Cosplay, Mr Creepy Pasta
