Sega Golden Gun
Developer: Sega Shanghai Studio
Golden Gun is Sega’s latest light gun shooter which utilizes the use of golden gun where players have to defeat the army of the undead and phantoms. The game also features a unique gameplay system where players can “Co-op shot” a enemy to score more points, choose multiple paths, and upgrade weapons & shields with points. This game has quite a few references to The House of the Dead series. In fact, a lot of references to the series. You’ll notice as soon as you play the game, you might bump into a couple of familiar creatures and scenes. Pretty safe to say that it maybe a spin-off. Continue reading →

Check out his amazing collection.
Now that’s a true HotD fan right there! For more pictures, check them out on our forums.
