With only 114 U.S. game releases and fairly reasonable aftermarket prices, the Sega Master System is an increasingly popular target for collectors who want to try amassing a single console’s entire library.

While I’ve still not gotten the hang of Japanese puzzle classic Puyo Puyo, I‘m pretty good at Tetris when I concentrate. Recording a Kotaku Plays video is not a good way to concentrate, but I don’t mind losing when I get to share the colorful sights and spirited sounds of Puyo Puyo Tetris.

Sega and Creative Assembly announced a new Total War game over the weekend. It’s a sequel to last years excellent Total War: Warhammer.
Sky Rogue looks like it was ripped right out of an arcade. Colorful graphics, fun combat, and wonderfully realized community content combine for a damn good time. It’s this week’s Indie Pick.
It is important, in 2017, to stay skeptical of any and all Sonic the Hedgehog video games. But Sonic Forces, which will be out later this year, looks promising for people who miss old-school speeding from the coolest hot-dog-devouring hedgehog on the planet.

The second installment of downloadable content for the already ridiculously-huge Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tone has arrived. The Second Encore pack adds more costumes, accessories and four songs to the over 200 in the game, including popular Project Mirai tune “Lots of Laugh.” Watch me play.
The announcement of the Xbox streaming service briefly took me back to the ‘90s and to the Sega Channel, an invention so great it basically erased most of my memory of 1994 as I entered a state of pure bliss closest to what David Foster Wallace described in Infinite Jest.
