The Sega Addicts Podcast

Sonic Forces released. Did you know that? Yeah we sorta forgot for a second as well, but then we realized we should talk about it! Woo! Remember Sonic Mania? Crap, well try to forget it. Remember Sonic Generations? Well, try to forget that game too, because we need to talk about Sonic Forces!

Nic, Brett, and Scotty also wanna tell you about some moments in games that made them think way more about that game than they may have in the past. Believe it or not, sometimes video games actually involve emotions. And you guys had some words on the topic as well!

Speaking of words, and you, the next episode (and final one for 2017!) will be a special mailbag episode! That means you need to get those crazy, deep, ridiculous, hilarious, obnoxious, and any other questions into us through our Discord and Twitter before December 12th. We have a good bit collected, but still need plenty more! Wanna know our favorite Sonic character? Favorite food? Best college story? Dumbest thing we ever dreamed about? Our first video game crush? Well you better ask us! Otherwise how will you find out?!

Suggested talking points: Sonic Forces Us To Play His Game, Sonic 06, WAS-Don't, Randy Pitchford

We interrupt our regularly scheduled podcast... schedule... to bring you a movie commentary! Fire up those VCRs and find your copy of the 1995 gem Mortal Kombat, because TJ, Nic, Brett, and Scotty are here to help you endure some "fine" cinema.

That's right, you get to watch a movie with the Addicts! And boy howdy, are you in for a treat. The director of Mortal Kombat, Paul W. S. Anderson, has gone on to create such quality video game movie adaptations as the Resident Evil series, and DOA: Dead or Live. Other Anderson greats include Death Race 2, Death Race 3: Inferno, and Alien Vs. Predator. Help us.

We will return to our regular ear candy with Podcast Episode 123, and don't forget to keep submitting your questions for our mail bag episode 125. For the moment though, "We got movie sign!"

Suggeted talking points: 500-dollar sunglasses, Gorro Axe Commercials, Blue Lens, Gex

We have Episode 125 coming up, and want your Listener Questions! Episode 125 will be a Mailbag Special composed entirely of your questions. So get them in now!

This week the Addicts discuss a cult classic from the beloved Dreamcast: Illbleed. You may wanna bring a spare pair of pants for this one according to a certain incredible commercial. The gang try to figure out what it is about the quirky game that keeps them coming back for more whether it's the Halloween season or not.

And speaking of quirky, Elle, Brett, and Scotty discuss the Questionarium centered around video games releasing incomplete. Is it fair to us as consumers? A few listeners also weigh in on this anomaly that has become commonplace with today's video games.

Don't forget to tune in on Saturday November 4th for our second Marathon of the year to raise money for Extra Life! Elle and her sister will be playing the entirety of Sonic Adventure 2 Battle and only insanity can ensue! Be sure to subscribe to our Twitch channel if you haven't already, so you know when things kick off and can help us donate even more money to a great cause.

Suggested talking points: Eriko Christy figure, Evil Sonic, Canned Goods, Brett's Food Pyramid

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.

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)!

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
