Love and Mayhem: Valentine’s Day Sale

Love is …

…a homicidal automaton that may or may not be aware it is a robot?

…twin-stick-driven, explosion-inducing, everything-blasting mayhem?

…eight friends gathering together in ruined locales to shoot wildly at each other for fun and profit?


…an undead rabbit, wreaking untold undead lagomorph havoc in a side-scrolling manner?

All of the above? Yes, love is all things to all gamers, and for those of you who are less interested in obscure dating sims may today be interested in our selection of games where you can blow things up real good: it is a Valentine’s Day sale at the Sega Store, for catalog past and present!

Happy Holidays from Shogun 2 and Renegade Ops

The Holidays are nearly here and soon we’ll all have a spot of time to relax and catch up on all the games we’ve been missing out on because of those pesky work or school responsibilities. Just in time for your gaming vacation – some very special Holiday content from Renegade Ops and Shogun 2 Total War!

Renegade Ops

Renegade Ops - Get Santa!

To catch the Holiday items in Renegade Ops, you’ll need to pick up the Coldstrike Pack and be on the PC platform. Riding around in the winter wonderland of the new DLC pack is a familiar friend with 8 tiny reindeer. Say hi the Renegade way (with a hail of bullet fire) and you might be rewarded with a special gift. Thanks Santa (also, no hard feelings, right?).

Shogun 2 Total War

Shogun 2 - Holiday Content

Creative Assembly deployed some free Holiday content for the community as a gesture of good will to all men. In it, there’s a new front end screen (this is enabled or disabled by the date of your system clock) and a whole new Christmassy map, packed with treats.

Here’s the scoop on the updates and changes, including two fixes:

• Brand new Christmas map – “Operation Santa”
• New Christmas battle HUD for Operation Santa map
• Corrections to encyclopaedia
• New Christmas front end scene
• Fixed hack (money cheat)
• Fixed issue with missing wall pieces in certain siege battle maps


Renegade Ops DLC Announced!

Renegade Ops

Renegades! Your time has come again, to team Up, tool up, and rip it up in the upcoming DLC for Renegade Ops! Two new packs are releasing for Playstation3, Xbox 360, and PC Platforms. Read on for the scoop:

The Vehicle Reinforcement Pack

Renegade Ops - Vehicle Pack

This pack introduces two new recruits, Crystal and Blazemo, who bring a little bit of fire and ice to the Renegade crew. Crystal will keep teammates cool and collected as they’re protected from enemies from within her force field. Blazemo will put the heat on the opposition as his ability, Incinerator, temporarily protects him from damage while engulfing his enemies in a firestorm.The Vehicle Reinforcement Pack will be priced at $2.99/£1.99/€2.49/ AUD$3.45 for PlayStation Network, and 240MSP for Xbox LIVE Arcade.

The Coldstrike Campaign

Renegade Ops - Coldstrike Campaign
This pack extends the explosive Renegade Ops story with the introduction of the mysterious new villain Coldstrike. In this chilling new epilogue, players will take on enormous new enemy types across three all new, delightfully destructible, arctic themed missions. The Coldstrike Campaign will be priced at $4.99/£3.59/€4.49/AUD$6.25 for PlayStation Network, and 400MSP for Xbox LIVE Arcade.


Movember Mo Cap Update

Movember is in full swing, so we thought we’d drop in a pre-holiday update for those tracking our progress. Here in Mo-merica, the moustaches are coming in great and we’re destroying our European counterparts in the donation department – so our moustaches feel doubly good. Part of this event was to not only raise some money for charity, but also to build on a healthy rivalry amongst our two regions. With Mo-merica currently at $2,500, our top Mo Bro Chris F has more money than the entire European team! And they are paying in pounds with a high exchange rate… shameful!

Chris F
Chris is our top Mo Bro, pictured here calling in yet another big donation. Chris is all business, all the time and of our entire Mo Bro group, he gets some extra recognition! Good job Chris!

David B
Donate to David!

Ken B
Donate to Ken and also give him some guff about not actually having a moustache!

Darren W
Donate to Darren!

Ben H
Donate to Ben!

Carl S
Donate to Carl!

Greg A
Donate to Greg!

Don’t worry Europe, you can still come back! I mean, it’s not likely and I write the blog and therefore can change history, but even against these odds, there’s still a chance!

General Bryant of Renegade Ops

General Bryant is outdoing us all in the moustache department, but as a fictional character that commands a group of badass mercs, that’s completely ok!

Luckily we’re not competing with this man, else we’d all lose and lose badly! Still more updates to come, we hope you’ve enjoyed this release and keep those donations coming in!


Movember Mo-Cap – Week 2!

MOVEMBER Shield 2011

Movember Day 8! We’re not even midway through the month and we’ve already received over $1,800 in total donations! An excellent first week effort with our own Chris Finch leading the charge with over $300 in total donations. Thanks to everyone who has helped by donating into the Renegade Ops Mo Bros and supporting this charity event!

While both teams have grown a collective $1,800+ in donations, SEGA of Momerica is currently has way MO donations (Mo-nations?) than the Euro SEGA Staches. As much as this is for charity, there is a bit of a competition at play between our two groups. So if anyone is thinking of joining in, I recommend sending a few extra coin to the European folks to keep things at least a bit interesting!

Why Moustaches?

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in the US and around the world. With their Mo’s, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.

General Bryant’s Mo Cap

Throughout the month of Movember, we’re thrilled to have photos of our own General Bryant regrowing his fabulous stache to full mo-glory. If you caught last week’s update, you’ll notice that clean shaven man was in fact the leader of the elite fighting force, the Renegades! Today we’re posting both Day 4 and Day 8 shots of General Bryant, just so you can see the progression!

The progression is almost freakish, surely even our own Ken Balough can’t grow this fast…

Sample Mo Gallery

Today, I’m going to post some photos of my own progression for the enjoyment of the internet. I’ve been tracking my progress on a semi-regular basis across my Mo-Space, as well as my personal Facebook account. Here’s a sample of the shots so far…

Renegade Ops Mo Bro - Julian - Day 2 Renegade Ops Mo Bro - Julian - Day 3

As you can see we’ve been having some fun with the updates! Definitely check the other updates as they come out and donate to my page!  Let it be known that I’m nowhere near General Bryant in growth potential, but what I lack in stache, I make up for in spirit and fun!

Mo to Come!

We’ve got more Movember content on the way, including more updates from the folks in our offices and our own General Bryant!


Renegade Ops & SEGA Support Movember!

Let’s first get this out of the way – everyone looks amazing with a mustache. Not convinced? Disagree? It’s ok, I have irrefutable proof:

Now that you are on my side, filled with mustache envy, I am very happy to announce that SEGA & General Bryant of Renegade Ops are here to support the Movember Charity!

About Movember

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in the US and around the world. With their Mo’s, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer. Men start Movember 1st clean shaven. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.

Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November. Through their actions and words they raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health. At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate their gallantry and valor by either throwing their own Movember party or attending one of the infamous Gala Partés held around the world by Movember, for Movember.

Meet the Renegade Ops Mo Bros

Movember is supported by SEGA internationally – we have teams from both Europe, America and our own General Bryant from Renegade Ops joining the ranks! It’s not often you have a character that’s sporting such a fantastic moustache, so we’re honoring General Bryant’s decision to join the charity by calling ourselves the Renegade Ops Mo Bros. Today we’ll meet our captains, but later we’ll meet some of the individuals behind each group, so stay tuned!

Renegade Mo-Ops!

Renegade Mo-Ops - General Bryant

The original Mo-Bro, General Bryant lead his Renegades to victory against the evil Inferno and did so with a fantastic mustache. Certainly the mark of a gentleman, General Bryant has cleaned up with a full day one shave in support for Movember. General Bryant plans to lead a new team, a team that will grow awareness for men’s health!

Sega of Mo-merica

Sega of Mo-merica - Ken Balough

Lead by mustache aficionado Ken Balough, known far and wide for his ability to grow a stache like no other. As many of you know, Ken is a Brand Manager here at SEGA of Mo-merica, working on such titles as Renegade Ops, Sonic 4, and Guardian Heroes. Ken is seen here with his best General Bryant impression – we were given a clean photo, but we decided to have a spot of fun on Ken’s behalf!

Donate to SEGA of Mo-merica

Euro SEGA Staches

Mike Evans - Euro SEGA Staches

Mike Evans heads up the Euro SEGA Staches, a man who has been with SEGA for several years and heading up the digital marketing group. Though I’ve personally not seen it, I’m told that Mike can grow an amazing mustache, which along with his keen leadership abilities is why he was added as team captain. Deceptively clean in this photo following his day one shave, but we expect good things from Mike in the future!

Support Movember & Donate!

While we are certainly having fun with this project, we are very thrilled to have the opportunity to take part in the Movember program and hope that our community will stand with us in supporting this charity. We have links to each page listed above and encourage you to donate towards the mustache of your choice. We’ll be updating each week with some additional team members and perhaps some growth photos! Fun stuff all around, looking forward to your feedback and thank you for your support!
