Happy 30th anniversary, Sonic the Hedgehog! To celebrate, we invited TitansCreed and TheBritishAndy to bring along some friends (GreenViper8, Bryce, ZephyrFloofyDerg and Garrulous64) and go head-to-head in a Sonical edition of The SEGA Lounge Challenge. Pick a team, play along and see if you can do better than Team Final Hazard or Team Wisp.
As Sonic's 30th anniversary approaches, we start our celebrations a week early by welcoming to the Lounge Dave Bulmer and Chris McFeely, hosts of Sonic the Comic the Podcast.
This week's guest is the amazingly talented Eric Kelso, best known by SEGA fans for being the voice of Jacky Bryant from Virtua Fighter and the original voice of Fuku-san, Guizhang and Ren from Shenmue. Keep listening to find out more about his work as a voice actor, his life in Japan and Shenmue.
Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World is a remake of the 1994 Mega Drive game Monster World IV. It's available for both PlayStation 4 and the Nintendo Switch. Listen along as KC shares his thoughts on the game.
Welcome to a very special episode of The SEGA Lounge as KC is joined by Ravsieg, Blessy, Matt Oliver and James Brown and they all share their thoughts and impressions on the newest entry in the Virtua Fighter series: Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown.
On the 29th of May, 2014, the first episode of The SEGA Lounge aired on RadioSEGA. That same night a tradition was born - to put our fine guests to the test with crazy challenges. This week, we're celebrating the show's 7th anniversary by taking that tradition to the next level. Welcome to the very first The SEGA Lounge Challenge Anniversary Edition, featuring special guests Mark and Lewis from The Dreamcast Junkyard, James of the SEGAGuys, Graham from Mega Visions, and Matt and James from Shenmue Dojo.
We're back for another show and this time KC is joined by XBuster, of the Monster World Mania community. Listen to a great chat and learn more about how he got into the Wonder Boy/Monster World series and what really makes it appealing to him.
The amazing Tyler Esposito of the My Retro Life channel is back this week so we can catch up after our last conversation on episode 7 of the show back in 2014. We go over his experiences with gaming, YouTube, and why SEGA is so special to him. It's a conversation you don't want to miss!
This week's episode of The SEGA Lounge is a very special one as we look back at 35 years of Alex Kidd. 2021 marks the 35th anniversary of the release of Alex Kidd in Miracle World and I thought the best way to celebrate the occasion would be to invite some of my friends from the community to share their memories of past games and their expectations toward the future of the series.
This week, The SEGA Lounge reaches 150 episodes! Thank you very much for your continued support. Join KC as he sits down with Russ, the man behind the blog and YouTube channel Retro Game Corps, and learn more about his background as a gamer and where his love for retrogaming and handhelds comes from.
This week's guest is (the?) SEGA Master Tim, who worked for SEGA of Australia's hotline back in the 90's. In this personal and in-depth interview, Tim opens up about his childhood, how SEGA games helped him during troubled times and how he ended up getting his job at the company. Oh, and the dread is back. Can Tim master the SEGA Lounge challenge? Stick around to find out.
We're back with the second part of my chat with Renato Almeida. Not only do you get the conclusion of The SEGA Lounge Challenge but some fun stories about Renato's company and how he met SEGA's CEO.
This week we have the first of two episodes with the fantastic Renato Almeida, a long-time SEGA fan from Brazil, who went from pretending to be the CEO of the company as a kid to actually working with SEGA. This week, we're going back to a time when SEGA dominated the Brazilian gaming scene and Renato will take us through how his passion for the blue company started. We'll also have the first half of The SEGA Lounge Challenge.
Joining KC this week is Jörg Tittel, citizen of the world, former Official Dreamcast Magazine writer, massive SEGA fan and one of the minds behind "The Last Worker", an upcoming game which has just been announced a few days ago. Listen in for some interesting stories and a Dreamcast-centric musical challenge.
Entering the Lounge this week is Portuguese YouTuber and gamer, Johnny Retro, host of the Retro Raider show. Listen as he discusses his first experiences with video games at an early age and feel for him as he suffers through our usual challenge.
This week's guest is none other than streamer and Sonic speedrunner, Argick. Listen to a chat where he shares his beginnings with video games and the speedrunning scene and finds out how much of a SEGA fan he really is.
Joining KC this week is the winner of RadioSEGA's Fan Choice Remix of the Year 2020 award, Alec 'Iceferno' Brooke. Iceferno shares his experiences with both video games and their music and uses all of his knowledge in a musical quiz.
This week, KC sits down with his long-time collaborator and friend, Manuel García Melgar, who's been working on art assets for The SEGA Lounge and RadioSEGA for several years now. Find out more about this incredibly talented SEGA fan.
This week, we're kicking off the GameBlast 21 festivities with a chat with Becky Frost, Community Events & Volunteer Coordinator, and Mark Saville, Communications Officer, both from SpecialEffect. They explain what this charity is, talk about GameBlast and tell us how you and I can help SpecialEffect on their quest to empower people. It's a great conversation and I couldn't be happier to have them on the show.
Ah... 2020... What a year! In more ways than one, a terrible year. Thankfully, we can always count on video games to offer some kind of escapism and therapy through troubled times. And boy did we all need that last year! Last week we looked at what I would like to think of as my way to bring some smiles and comfort into your life by way of this podcast. On this episode, I'm joined by some friends, 17 to be exact, from the SEGA community as we look back at some of the most memorable SEGA moments of 2020.
In the first episode of Season 6, we look back at some of the best moments from the previous season of the show. Unfortunately, there's no time to highlight all of our amazing guests, but this episode is dedicated to all of them and their amazing stories and projects. Welcome back to The SEGA Lounge! Come on in and have a seat.
Listen to KC's thoughts on Yakuza: Like a Dragon, the latest entry in the popular Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio series in this long overdue review of the game.
This week, I'm joined on the Lounge by the amazing Tom Campbell. Radio presenter, part of the Cultaholic Wrestling website and YouTube channel and, most importantly I'd say, Sonic the Hedgehog fan. As you probably know, everyone's favorite blue hedgehog is turning 30 next year and Tom decided a good way to celebrate that was to put together an audio documentary about the games, the cartoons, the comic books and the fans that make the blue blur such a beloved character. This has been one of the best times I ever had recording an interview and that's saying a lot so I do hope you enjoy getting to know the legend that is Tom Campbell.
This week, I'm thrilled to be joined by Scott Strichart, localization producer of the Yakuza series at SEGA of America. If you listened to our bonus summer episodes, you may remember a talk I had with Scott back in 2018 on another show, which you should definitely go listen to if you want even more detail into his video game experiences. This time, however, it was great to have him on for the full Lounge experience. Listen as he discusses working closely with RGG Studio and the process behind localizing Yakuza: Like a Dragon and much more. We'll also find out if he is indeed worthy of his Twitter bio title of "Patriarch of the Yakuza Localization Family" in another challenge that is not for the faint of heart.
