Video Game Ad of the Day: E.T.’s Rugby League

by on May.15, 2013, under Video Game Ad of the Day

ET's Rugby League
E.T.’s Rugby League is quite possibly the first video game developed around the Australian rugby league competition. It was commissioned for development by Ozisoft, who enlisted the help of World Class Rugby developer Denton Designs to adapt their existing rugby game into a rugby league game. It was endorsed by Cronulla Sharks legend-turned fishing show host Andrew “E.T.” Ettinghausen, and carries the official licenses of the New South Wales Rugby League and Australian Rugby League.

Sega Action, the Australian Sega newsletter

by on Apr.23, 2012, under Aussie Oddities

While I was back at my parents’ place scanning magazine covers for the Australian Game Database, I found a good chunk of promotional material from the glory days of Sega in Australia.

One such piece of paraphernalia was Sega Action, a short lived newsletter Sega Ozisoft sent out to folks who registered their Master Systems and Mega Drives. Sega Action basically promoted the latest games, detailed where Sega roadshows were happening, and gave you the opportunity to buy Sega merchandise. It also plugged the hell out of the Sega Hotline and Sega Club.

I don’t know exactly how long the newsletter ran for – it started up in late 1991, and I don’t recall seeing any issues after the launch of the Mega CD.

The scans aren’t the best since I kind of rushed the scanning, but we’ll probably take a crack at doing a better scan of these down the line.
