Pengo is back!

July 31, 2010

It’s been 28 years since Sega released Pengo in arcades back in 1982. You remember Pengo don’t you?

It’s the game where you destroyed Sno-Bees in a maze of ice using the very same ice blocks to crush them.

If you don’t remember then check out this video to jog your memory.

Below is the brand new Pengo game coming out in Japanese arcades. Unlike the first game it will feature a crazy 8 player mode which can only be as hectic as it is fun. Watch in envy at the game you’ll probably never get to play. It’s great to have you back Pengo!

  • Kage throws ninja stars (Probably won’t make it in game)
  • Taka and Jeffry have a heavy exchange of blows.
  • Lau fights Lei Fei with his arms behind his back proving he’s a real bad ass.
  • Vanessa counters El Blaze’s airborne attack.

Sega Genesis, Saturn and Dreamcast items in Virtua Fighter 5R

June 1, 2010
Vf5R items

Do want!

Three awesome items are now available for character customization in Virtua Fighter 5R. That’s right! Now players can have their favorite Sega system attached to the backs of their favorite VF character.

Before you non-Japanese fans get excited about this update it should be known this is only for the updated Virtua Fighter 5R for Japanese Arcades. Being a Virtua Fighter fan myself I would love to have this if they ever decide to port Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown to consoles.

I love all 3 of them equally but I would go for the Mega Drive/Genesis for my character. What would you choose?
