Goodbye Space Michael..



Here's the mission where he appeared in full (from the English PS2 version). take note Micheal phoned up Sega personally because he wanted to be be in the game. That's just how awesome he was!



As you may remember from my 'Common Themes in Dreamcast land' Article, MJ was also playable in Midway's Ready 2 Rumble 2! Here's the first part of a complete play-though of the game with the king of pop!



R.I.P, MJ. I also have an article about his contributions to Sega over at Sega Memories.

A beautiful and fitting tribute Gagaman(n). If the Dreamcast has been one of the obsessions in my life, then MJ has been another. The two of them combined in this delicious videogame bonanza are almost too much to cope with!

I was absolutely devastated to hear of the great man's passing, not least because I'd forked out £300 of family budget that we really couldn't afford on concert tickets for me and Mrs.K for January 10th. I thought it would be the best night of my life.

Undoubtedly we'll get some haters posting negative comments about this tribute. But I say top marks Gagaman(n)! You pipped me, quite literally, to this post... RIP Space Michael!!!

Great tribute Gagaman! I played both games last night in memoriam, as well as some Sonic 3. :) He will be missed.

I never liked his music but I think he served as an important lesson to us all about the dangers of making a little kid into a pop music icon too early in life.

I had a great Jackson filled weekend. My GF and I blasted MJ tunes while driving about Friday night, Saturday I played SC5 and Moonwalker and Sunday I watched the Simpsons episode featuring Jackson followed by the "Do the Bartman" tribute that FOX played before The Simpsons.

I too have had a Jackson fuelled weekend... Space Michael RIP!

A shame that link is related to one of the newspapers spreading bogus 'exclusive news' about him, like the Autopsy details that the hospital de-bunked. Stupid press always desperate for a scandal, they were the death of him.
