I'm not against SEGA bringing in some of their big titles, but the last few times they've tried to revive titles, they've really been 'in name only' affairs (see, for example, the drubbing the Shining series got, particularly Shining Force).

Tbh, I'd rather have Sega attempt sequels than to keep doing re-releases and remasters. Sonic Generations was amazing and proves that Sega can do fusions properly. Ecco on Dreamcast and Jet Set Radio Future on Xbox are proof that Sega can do perfect sequels of the effort is there. They just need to focus on their best franchises. Forget Sonic and Bayonetta and do another Space Channel 5 and such. Get creative, take risks, etc. If anyone can do good sequels, it's Sega (both as a dev and a pub).

The list of Sega sequels that are great vastly out-number those that are bad. They may be harder to spot because they don't have numbers 1, 2, etc. but they are there - usually jumping on different consoles.

Off the top of my head stuff like Golden Axe, Altered Beast, Ecco the Dolphin, Jet Set Radio, Crazy Taxi, Alex Kidd, Zaxxon, House of the Dead, Shining Force, Space Harrier, Streets of Rage.

 

Of course I was a huge Eternal Champions fan back in the day.

The thing that bugs me about re-releases is that they only ever seem to keep putting out Genesis versions of the games even with games like Altered Beast or Golden Axe that had arcade versions.

 

I love Golden Axe, but I'd really love to have an arcade version of Golden Axe I and an arcade version of Golden Axe: The Revenge of Death Adder to go along with Golden Axe, Golden Axe II, Golden Axe III from the Genesis.  Toss in the Arcade version of Golden Axe: The Duel and you have a pretty decent retrospective set, IMO.

 

But agreed a good new game would be awesome (Golden Axe: Beast Rider is another example of a game that seemed to miss the point of the originals in creating an update).

Not all of those were arcade games and it sounds like maybe you're more familiar with Arcade Games?
 
Altered Beast -  
 
Zaxxon - 
 
Space Harrier - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iPkZDlvDsgc
 
House of the Dead - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ReIuGMXz190

I'd love it, but the last tactical Shining Force game didn't get a release outside of Japan (Shining Force Feather in 2009).  There was a different tactical game Shining Blade from 2012 that also didn't get a release outside of Japan.  Neither had the very FIRE EMBLEM-esque system of the earlier Shining Force games.

 

Instead we got the action RPGs Shining Force Neo and Shining Force Exa neither of which I cared for (and the Shining Souls hand held games, which were 'okay' action dungeon crawls).

I sure as hell hope IO Interactive doesn't get scooped up by Sony or Microsoft or Nintendo and Hitman becomes an exclusive title, that would suck (assuming the rumor that IO Interactive retain the IP are true).  I want Hitman on as many platforms as possible.

 

As for the rumor that season 2 is well into development, this seems plausible enough.  They just did the "reboot" so they have the framework in place.  As far as I'm concerned, very little needs to be changed for season 2.  They can basically leave the game as is and just create new assets for new levels and characters and, of course, the continuation of the story from the cliffhanger it left off on.

Me too. At least 2 platforms (pc and a console). I don't think Switch has a chance at getting Hitman - at least not a newer one, maybe Absolution. I hope I don't jinx it but I can just see someone like NaughtyDog or Guerilla making Hitman. While it would probably be astounding and I know they would do justice, it would only be PS4 :(

Paradox know "people want a Bloodlines sequel," will make one "when the time is right"

Paradox Con 2017 just wrapped up in Stockholm, and there have already been lots of exciting announcements about the ambitious strategy publishers' coming plans. Some of these should concern the intellectual property of White Wolf publishing, which includes the 2004 cult hit Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines, so we asked Paradox CEO Fredrik Wester about that very subject.

 
Apart from the fact that they now own VTMB, many of the leads on that game now work at Obsidian, with whom Paradox have collaborated before. 
 
“Yeah, on paper that's a really good match,” says Wester. “Of course, sooner or later, people will want a follow-up to Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines… and when the time is right I guess a sequel will find its place in the market. But it's too early to say anything about that right now.”
 
Paradox bought White Wolf in 2015, but it’s clear that they are taking their time making games based on their IP. Wester accepts this, saying they don’t want to announce anything too early for fear of disappointing fans, “but things are coming - that’s not a secret. There’s no use buying such a rich catalogue of IPs just to be sitting on them another ten years.”

I just want to know what exactly happened to cause C&C4. It's one of those things that everyone had to know better than to release, but there it was.

Comes out in 2 days.  I guess this was a Kickstarter game, I hadn't heard of it until just now.  Anyway, it's a sRPG with town management and diplomacy.  It's from a Polish studio and has a nice hand-drawn aesthetic.  Seems like something right up my alley, hopefully it doesn't suck.

FarCry 5 is announced and it seems it is set in the wild west this time around.
