The Humble Bundle Celebrates Sonic’s 25th Anniversary

Is your Sonic library on Steam lacking a few titles? Why wait for a Steam sale when you can set your own price and meet payment tiers in the latest Humble Bundle featuring a trove of Sonic games that can be redeemed on Steam which includes Sonic Lost World and an exclusive T-shirt for $35. Games such as Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, Sonic Adventure 2 and Sonic Generations all feature their DLC included as well, except for our good buddy Simon from Yogscast in Transformed. The SEGA Genesis and Mega Drive games also take advantage of the updated emulator that supports ROM hacks as well.

If you’re not familiar with how the Humble Bundle works, you can set the price on what you would pay for the games and receive a Steam validation code for each game covered by your payment. You can also pay above two different tiers with one being the average paid amongst different users on the Humble Bundle. Previous Humble Bundles included mobile Sonic titles and the Archie Sonic comic series. This marks the first time Sonic games on Steam appeared in a Humble Bundle set.

Be sure to check out the Humble Bundle page on more information. More games will be added to the bundle in the near future which do not require additional payment. Hit the jump to see what games are available in the bundle.

Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games is Out on Wii U This Week

So I’m sure that a lot of you are excited for whatever Sonic 25th anniversary stuff might happen, but I’m here to remind you of that Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games will be out on Wii U this week.

Okay I’m sure none of you actually care about yet another Mario & Sonic mini-game collection but you need to at least see this: it has Wario dancing to Reach For The Stars:

Anyway you can buy Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games for Wii U starting June 24th, but really there’s no reason to since you’ve just seen the best thing you’d be getting out of the game anyway. Well, aside from maybe Eggman dancing to Reach for the Stars, but I’m sure there’ll be a video of that soon enough anyway.

Actually Metal Sonic dancing to the Super Bell Hill music from Super Mario 3D World is pretty great as well.
