Sega’s gaming gems: some Virtual Console vids

Sega‘s got blue hedgehogs, robots, and man-beast monstrosities running around the Wii, and you really should do something about that if you want to get your money’s worth. That being said, it’s time to grab your controller and beat these video game beasties into submission.

The two most memorable members of Sega’s video game gems have to be the hero and villain of the Sonic the Hedgehog series: Sonic and Dr. Ivo “Eggman” Robotnik. Not only have they starred in numerous Sonic games; they’ve also had spin-offs, such as Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine. Between giant mechanized warships and islands, they’ve pretty much fought everywhere and with everything in existence.

Speaking of mechanized monstrosities, two other games of this type have also been spotted on the virtual console. The first is Gunstar Heroes, a game where you play as either Gunstar Red or Blue in an attempt to save your family and retrieve four mystic gems that have corrupted the robotic citizens of Gunstar 9. The second game is Altered Beast, where you’re a centurion whom Zeus resurrects to rescue his daughter Athena. Expect the “Wise fwom your gwave!” line to remain intact, as Elmer Fudd playing God is still funny.

Lastly, watch out for some literal magic Jewels in the virtual port of Columns. This Tetris clone has the power to mess with minds, as magic jewels can sometimes fall into the playing field, obliterating every similarly-colored jewel on the board.

In any case, if you have some trouble seeing them, look to the YouTube videos below and after the jump to know what you’re up against. Good luck gamers, and get to downloading!
