Man throws a hedgehog and goes to prison

Source: seganerds.com

William Singalargh has impressed me by throwing a hedgehog at a 15 year old boy. He threw the hedgehog a unimpressive 16 feet.

William is due in court on April 16th and if he is convicted he gets five years in prison. But at least he can say he has been convicted for using a hedgehog as a weapon.

Now what we are all wondering, can you seriously hurt someone with a hedgehog? Well apparently not. The kid only got a large red welt and puncture marks.

Help make Project Sega Mugen

Source: seganerds.com

Kori-Maru loves Sega’s Fighters Megamix. So much so that he decided to try and make a Sega cross over game of his own, using the Mugen engine. He wants Sega fans to contribute to his project.

Do you have any ideas? Or game making skills? This also means artists, for background work and sprites.

If you think you can contribute, come and help on the forums here.

Alpha Protocol screens look sharp

Source: seganerds.com

Here are some nice looking screens for Sega and Obsidian’s upcoming video game, Alpha Protocol. This are the same screens that appeared in Game Informer’s April issue.

People on the forum have complained that the game looks generic. That’s a lame excuse to dismiss a game. I think the screens look nice and feature a nice amount of textures. To be honest, it has me interested, not because of the art design but because of what it promises.

[Thanks Yu Suzuki]

Hit the jump for the screens.

I think this new piece of artwork can explain the title for Sega’s upcoming Sonic game. Seems that Sonic will have a dark side that looks wolf like. Yes, I can already feel the frowning faces in millions of Sonic fans.Though on the positive side, the recently revealed screenshots didn’t have annoying side kicks. Thats a good thing, right guys?

Discuss this game with fellow Sonic fans on the forum.

[Thanks Sega-On]

So it should be interesting.

The scans also include the ‘Top 10 weirdest games of all time’, like expected Sega dominated the list.

Sean Ratcliffe is Sega’s new Vice President of Marketing

Source: seganerds.com

newvpmarketing.jpgSean Ratcliffe will replace Scott Steinberg as Vice President of Marketing over at Sega. Everyone thought Scott Steinberg was a little crazy and he probably was. Don’t worry, he is now working with all the other crazy people at Sony. Sean Ratcliffe has worked with companies such at EA Sports, Disney Interactive Studios, and Lego Interactive.

Have you noticed something? All the games are license games. I’ll say expect a lot more licensed games from Sega of America in the future. I don’t know if this is a good thing.

This is what Simon Jeffery had to say:

“Sean’s impressive accomplishments include managing the worldwide launch of hit titles like Harry Potter & The Sorcerer’s Stone, the multi-million unit-seller, as well as playing a key role in Disney Interactive’s impressive market share growth. These achievements, coupled with his proven ability to work on a worldwide scale, make Sean a fantastic asset at a global company like SEGA.”

Source: seganerds.com

condemnd.jpgHaven’t played Condemned before but are interested in the sequel? No problem, if you purchase the sequel from Circuit City they will throw in Condemned: Criminal Origins for free. Yeah I didn’t know people still shopped at Circuit City, but apparently they do. If you haven’t picked up the first one yet and this is a pretty good deal. For those of you that have, Gamestop is giving a limited edition multiplayer guide. It’s nice for those swag obsessed nerds.

Make sure to pick up Condemned 2: Bloodshot when it hits North America on the 11th and in Europe on the 14th. Yes the game is just around the corner.

A lot of the forum members have been debating if we should consider this game as being shit already. I think I’ll wait to find out more. But in the end, we will never know till we try it.

Though I don’t think these screenshots look that great (apart from the one above) .

Secret Level’s website says:

…is guaranteed to leave the fans reeling with incredible graphics…

I’ll let you guys decided.

Check out the new screenshots here.
