Video Spotlight: Knuckles Attempts to Murder a Cat in Sonic Boom TV Ad

November 3rd, 2014

A glimpse of the TV advertising campaign for Sonic Boom has been unleashed with this new TV spot that’s now available to watch on the Sonic YouTube channel. It’s an amusing little clip that puts Sonic and the gang in the real world to save a cat stuck in a tree:

Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric for Wii-U and Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal for the 3DS launch in the UK on the 21st of November.

Unreleased SEGA Shmup Hammer Away Found in Portugal

November 3rd, 2014

System-18 arcade shmup Hammer Away is a peculiar game that was due to release in arcades in 1991 but sadly never made it for unknown reasons. Now 23 years later, 3 shmup fans have managed to find the chips for the game in a warehouse in Portugal and the game has now been dumped making it available for play in arcade emulators like MAME.

2 gameplay videos of the game in action have been uploaded by the game’s finders below:

Video Spotlight: SEGA Arcade Games on the Commodore 64

November 2nd, 2014

The Commodore 64 was an 8 bit home computer released in 1982 and would become one of the most beloved machines for gaming in the early days. Back before SEGA started making their own consoles and keeping the rights to their first party exclusives for themselves, many early computers received ports of SEGA arcade games. The Commodore 64 is no exception and the video below highlights a lot (if not all) of the SEGA arcade ports that made their way to the machine. There’s some interesting inclusions with the port of Space Harrier being particularly impressive. While some games transfer to the machine better than others, this is still an interesting showcase in how to make high-powered software run on a significantly under-powered machine.

Feature: The Sonic Show – The Complete Mess Collection

November 1st, 2014

The Sonic Show is 8 years old this year. That’s a long time to be running a Sonic-centric video series. Originally hosted on its own website, it now operates exclusively out of YouTube. To celebrate this milestone the show is releasing its first collection exclusive music and it’s called The Complete Mess Collection which to be frank is quite fitting.

Fan Scene: Sonic CD Mods Adds Metal Sonic as Playable Character

November 1st, 2014

A fan called Darkon360 has created the first mod for Sonic CD Remastered.

This mod makes Metal Sonic completely playable in the game. It’s a fun little addition that takes the place of Sonic as the main playable character. There’s an interesting addition in the Stardust Speedway boss stage in that Darkon360 has added Metal Sonic 3.0 from Sonic Rivals 2 as the new rival for Metal Sonic. This was obviously done to avoid having Metal Sonic race himself, but it’s a fun little touch all the same.

Check out a gameplay trailer below:

You can download the mod via this link. Instructions on how to install it are also available from this page.
