Sega commits exclusively to the nostalgia platform

October 18, 2007

Ok Sega, i know you just gave me Virtua Tennis 3 for PS3 earlier this year, but come on, man. If you’re gonna release a Wii game wherein 3D avatars smack a ball with racquets, can you make it just a tad more akin to pro tennis? Do i have to see Sonic in every single Wii game now? Can somebody please release a goddamn tennis game with decent motion control for Wii?!!

Ahem. Well, what can ya do.

What to expect from Sega’s new, throwback-driven game, Superstars Tennis:

  • A hedgehog
  • Dreamcast game characters
  • Whacky game mechanics including zany special moves and insane power-ups
  • Online play (for PS3 and Xbox only)
  • Characters undeserving of the label “superstar”
  • Another blatant promotional attempt to increase Sega’s franchise appeal and inch closer to Nintendo’s
  • I don’t respect Sega enough to end this on a good note, so please, jump and cheer for joy in the comments so i can cry in the corner and promise my first child to whomever can provide me with a competent Wii Sports Tennis replacement. Don’t stop till i tell you, it’ll be a while.

      Top Spin’s on its way, but the way Table Tennis turned out, I’m underconfident. But really, what’s with Sega and trying to make ppl nostalgic over 5 year games.

      What happened to the SEGA on Xbox I loved so much?? Panzer Dragoon Orta, Gun Valkirie, Otogi… That was a company that used to take risks making original and VERY beatiful games!

      Even on Dreamcast they used to be the most edgy of all companies… does anyone remember SeaMan? At least they got Ulala on this tennis game… but why not release a new Space Channel 5, at least as a download on LIVE Arcade or Virtual Console??
