Your World Will Burn – Total War: Attila Announced

Total War: Attila Logo

Total War: ATTILA is the next installment in the multi award-winning Total War series of strategy games.

The Dark Ages approach. A time of famine, disease and war, where refugees in their thousands flee from a sweeping tide of destruction and death. Desperate barbaric tribes rally against the ailing might of a dying and divided Roman empire; the light of civilization gutters and dims. In the great steppes of Scythia, a vast and terrifying force gathers, led by a warrior king whose thirst for conquest is utterly unequaled.

Total War: Attila

The Scourge of God, the very herald of the apocalypse, Attila the Hun.

Total War: ATTILA introduces exciting new gameplay mechanics which improve and add to numerous core turn-based and real-time Total War systems. The world will darken around you as Attila’s forces descend on your homeland creating a unique vision of survival strategy.

“With Total War: ATTILA we will create a Total War game that will challenge and enthrall fans of the series,” said Janos Gaspar, project lead on ATTILA. “We’re reintroducing some features that fans have been asking for, such as family trees and skill trees, and improving many of the core aspects of Total War we know are important to them. But to really bring the period to life, we’re building on these foundations with many new strategic features for them to consider, such as advanced street-fighting, civilians, complete settlement destruction and dynamic fire that can rage across a city as armies clash. We want to push players to the limits of their skill to survive against the odds, and to love every minute of it.”

SEGA Updates Comment Policies Around Photos of People

SEGA Logo header

Today, we have an important comment policy update for anyone who comments on the SEGA blog, SEGA forums, and the SEGA or Sonic the Hedgehog social media accounts.

We love our fans. As community managers, we interact with our fans each and every day. We try to solve problems, provide informational updates, and spread the enjoyment of SEGA’s brands and products. As part of that, we often like to highlight both the people that work here at SEGA, but also our dedicated fans. Sometimes this is in the form of behind-the-scenes photos from events or our offices, and sometimes this is to highlight prize winners or cosplayers. But we’ve noticed a disturbing trend lately – people posting mean or inappropriate comments on these photos.

Therefore, we are putting a new policy in place across all of SEGA’s community and social channels – if you make a personal attack or otherwise inappropriate comment, we will delete your comment and we will ban or block you from our page/channel.

It’s really just that simple. Our fans may not always agree with us or with each other, but we all need to respect each other on a fundamental, human level. We want our communities to be a place of positivity, where we can celebrate the enthusiasm of our fans, and not a place for fear or malice.

Super Monkey Ball Bounce Launch

Get your bounce on in the newest addition to the Super Monkey Ball franchise.

(Don’t fret, AiAi is definitely involved.) This isn’t like the Super Monkey Ball you have played in the past.

Think of it more as inspired by SEGA’s pachinko roots and the mini-games that were so iconic in the original console version.


Super Monkey Ball Bounce Level


You will start the game playing as AiAi and watch as all of the characters you remember from the classic games – including Baby, GonGon and YanYan – get captured. Play through the levels and save them from bosses at the end of each area.


Super Monkey Ball Bounce Jigsaw


Each monkey has a special power that will help you through the next area. With AiAi you get a predictive shot, Baby gives you an extra bouncy ball, and YanYan shows off with a double shot.


Super Monkey Ball Bounce Baby Bounce


Not every level has the same design. Expect to run into different types of levels throughout the game including Tiki Topple, Puzzler and Survivor. Here’s a tip: when you are playing a Survivor puzzle and you only have one shot, really think about how to use the environment to nail it. There are 119 levels to explore, but you’ll see more released in the coming months.


Super Monkey Ball Bounce Tiki Level


Share the fun. Play with your friends when you connect to Facebook and see who gets the highest scores. As a last bit of fun you can also get costumes for your monkeys. When you play the (wheel) there is a chance for you to win a costume unique to each monkey!

Free Stuff Friday – August 22nd, 2014

Sad to say, but it’s almost the end of summer. For some, the end of summer means the start of … school. So we figured we’d try and make that transition as awesome as possible with three Back to School backpacks! See below for the prize details…

How it Works

Free Stuff Friday - Sign up for Twitter

Free Stuff Friday - Example Tweet

2. Giveaways start around 11am Pacific Time on Fridays. We tweet a message with instructions and participants send a Direct Message (commonly called DM) in return. Send a Direct Message changes depending on what Twitter client you are using, we recommend reading this helpful tutorial before the giveaway day.

Note: @SEGA is verified, you can send a Direct Message without being followed. This is totally against everything Twitter has taught you about Direct Messages, but it really works.

Example of a typical giveaway:

@SEGA Tweets: “GIVEAWAY: Sonic T-shirt, size L. Be the 15th person to DM “Sonic Adventure” to win!”

You see this, and want to win it, so you send us a direct message that says “Sonic Adventure”. If you are the 15th person to do so, you are the winner! Quotation marks do not matter, capitalization does not matter, but spelling does matter! (Note, this is just an example, please do not Direct Message this example phrase).

3. We will announce the winner the following week across our blog in the next Free Stuff Friday giveaway. Please read the official rules at the end of this post to confirm eligibility.
