The Sega Addicts Podcast

This week on Sega Addicts, the gang's (mostly) all here to (somewhat) proudly present the 2015 Game of the Year award show... podcast... THING.  We share some special personal awards, discuss what a good/bed year 2015 has been for games and the industry, and last but not least share awards that we voted on as a group!  Here's to a fun-filled 2016, and we hope you don't hate us by the end of it.

This week on Sega Addicts, Nick’s back, and just in time to play the ultimate Christmas-related game… Die Hard Arcade? We discuss the best game-related gifts we’ve given and received, talk about Star Wars probably a bit too much (Thanks, Tom!) and share our least favorite holiday songs. Turns out we’re all a bunch of Scrooges that hate Christmas music. Baby Jesus would be so sad.

This week on Sega Addicts, we discuss a game that most people probably weren't even aware that Sega published, Gungrave! (I know I sure didn't)  We talk about video game endings that do or don't combine crescendo and catharsis well, spend way too long arguing about censorship in video games because of Street Fighter V, and share things we've had other people share with us that we got instantly hooked on.

This week on Sega Addicts, we discuss probably one of the most overlooked Marvel games, The Punisher for Sega Genesis.  We discuss whether or not we prefer a character having a preexisting backstory or their story fleshing out as we go along, answer a whole slew of silly questions, and discuss our tactics for falling asleep.  Tune in next week for more health and beauty tips from the beautiful people here at Sega Addicts!
