I’m currently deep in editing the next episode of the MoeGamer Podcast, but I managed to find some time to get a new Sunday Driving up.
I’ve had a few computer woes recently with a failing hard drive (probably down to it being about eight years old and getting battered pretty hard with video work) so I upgraded to an SSD (and Windows 10, against my better judgement). In the process I misplaced my Blur save file, so I thought this would be a good opportunity to revisit a favourite Sega game.
Here’s a look at Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed from Sega and Sumo Digital, a game that I enjoy a whole lot more than Mario Kart… in single-player, anyway.

The battles against Orochi’s forces continue as Nobunaga and friends come face to face with a powerful foe.
It’s Da Ji, Orochi’s strategist and a master of disguise. Deceiving the Coalition forces by taking on the appearance of the apparently slain Cao Cao, Da Ji seeks to take control of the battlefield on her own terms.
Nobunaga is not so easily swayed by the formidable charms of a big tiddy strategist gf, however, although he does take a bit of a kicking a couple of times before figuring out the best way to deal with the situation. Hit the jump to see how that all went.

Despite technically being “on holiday” I’ve managed to fill today up completely to such a degree that I haven’t had time to finish a full article for MoeGamer as yet, and I’m about to go out for the evening. Consequently, you can expect an article later (late!) tonight when I get back.
In the meantime, please enjoy the beginning of this new side project exploring the library of the Atari 8-bit line of computers from A to Z and back again. New episodes are coming every Tuesday, so watch out for them either here or over on YouTube.
This isn’t technically part of MoeGamer’s remit, such as it is, but it is nonetheless a retro gaming project I have been working on, so I thought I’d share it here in case anyone is interested!
The battles continue in Warriors Orochi as Nobunaga and friends attempt to rescue some peasants from a fate worse than death. Or just, you know, death.
I’ve been having a real blast with Warriors Orochi so far, and I’m really looking forward to seeing how the series develops over time. The prospect of the upcoming Warriors Orochi 4 incorporating elements of Greek mythology is tremendously exciting to me, but I’m having fun with the Chinese and Japanese heroes in the meantime.
Hit the jump for the new video.

My revisiting of old arcade racers continues with another blast on Bizarre Creations’ wonderful Blur.
This week, we progress a little further in the game’s substantial single-player campaign, including taking on the first of the game’s boss encounters: Shannon.
Be sure to let me know either here or on YouTube if you want to see more Blur or switch to a different arcade racer for a bit for future installments in this series… and, of course, hit the jump for the video itself.

Last month’s feature on Hyrule Warriors got me thoroughly re-enamoured with the Warriors series as a whole, so I figured why not spend some time playing through some installments I’ve never tried before?
One subseries I’ve always been particularly curious about is Warriors Orochi, an ambitious, fantastic crossover affair which initially brought together the casts of Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors before, in later installments, diversifying in all sorts of strange directions.
Hit the jump to see my first experiences with the Xbox 360 version of the first game in this peculiar series!

Following some discussion on the podcast recently, I decided to revisit some old favourite arcade racers, including Bizarre Creations’ swansong Blur.
For the uninitiated, this “powered up racer” features a delightful blend of real-world cars and locales with purely fantastic, neon-coloured power-ups. This makes the racing enormously aggressive and a huge amount of fun, and it’s a crying shame that Activision completely failed to market the game effectively.
But, well, the game still exists, so I’m damn well going to play it and enjoy it, and you can join me for the ride! Hit the jump for the first part of this new video series.
