Sega All-Stars Avatar items are looking for sales

We may not usually condone the capricious waste of Microsoft Points on Avatar frippery, but we must admit that the Sonic & Sega All-Stars clothing set makes a pretty good argument for the existence of Avatar clothes. And that argument is "here's Ryo Hazuki's jacket." It's available for men and...

Amazon is Samba de Amigo's friend today

Amazon's Deal of the Day is one of those games we've wanted to try, but felt the investment was too risky: Samba de Amigo. Maybe you experienced similar trepidation: at $30 or even $20, it would be a terrible disappointment if the Wiimote/Nunchuk controls failed to accurately imitate the...

Sega running Samba de Amigo contest

Sega is running a contest for its Dreamcast-turned-Wii port, Samba de Amigo. As you can see above, the winner will receive a pair of the maraca peripherals, as well as a copy of the game, and a special edition iPod nano. Not a bad prize pack, if we may say so, and there is a total of 11 prize...

PETA rewards Sega for being amigos to chimps

When PETA saw ads for Samba de Amigo featuring a live chimpanzee, they got a bit outraged (as is their wont). They sent a letter to Sega describing the quite horrible life that goes along with being a Hollywood chimp, including, obviously, separation from family, but also painful training methods...

Sega receives vegan, monkey-shaped chocolates from PETA

Look, we don't condone the unethical treatment of any creature forced to endure the repetitive waggling that's characteristic of rushed, rehashed Wiimakes. It's disgusting -- about as disgusting as little vegan chocolates in the shape of monkeys! So when PETA says it's grateful to Sega for pulling...

From disgust to joy: new Samba de Amigo trailers

This Samba de Amigo trailer starts off badly. And by "badly," we mean terribly. For the first 34 seconds, it's just a bunch of bratty kids hamming it up with some of the worst having fun acting we've ever seen. The occasional glimpse of the game and that chimpanzee from an earlier video helps a...

Metareview: Samba de Amigo

It was one of the biggest hits on the Dreamcast, and possibly the most joy-filled games ever (it actually made us like Ricky Martin). It has Ulala. It has sombereros. It has a trailer featuring a monkey. By all accounts, we should love Samba de Amigo like our firstborn. Do the gaming press agree?...

Samba maracas are unofficial, which probably means no bundle

Samba de Amigo ships out next week and we're still scrambling over the maracas situation. We once thought that a retailer's mocked-up bundle box was proof that a maracas peripheral would be bundled with the game, but that image was taken down and, in fact, Sega denied that a peripheral would be...

Samba de Amigo Wii maracas priced, dated on Amazon

As you could probably deduce from earlier posts concerning ill-conceived pseudo-peripherals for Nintendo's latest home console -- we're not really fans of most Wiimote attachments. We don't need a cheap, plastic tennis racket snapped to the front of our controller to "get our McEnroe on" when...

Latest Samba de Amigo trailer shows Sonic rocking out

A new trailer for Sega's upcoming music title Samba de Amigo has hit the net, showing off such songs as "Mambo #5" and "Hot Hot Hot," as well as "Soul Bossa Nova." For those of you who've caught the whole track list, you're pretty much settled on whether this is a strong track list or one that's...
