Monday Links: May Be Tuesday In Your Locale Edition

I hadn’t planned to do any links today–as an American, my priorities of the day have been to blow things up and test out the various recipes from our drinking contest (results coming soon, btw.)

  • You may remember some “unused” music in Sonic Mega Collection found a few years ago. Turns out it’s in fact part of an odd tech demo video by CRI. [ Why is this shit in my Sonic Mega Collection? ]
  • Retro members have been digging up various rare pieces of art with the intent of cleaning up and organizing a collection. Have something we don’t have in our artwork section? Feel free to join in! [ Rare Sonic Art (and restoring it) ]

  • Segashiro highlights one of Ben Heck’s forumers modifications to the Sega Game Gear: new casing, rechargable batteries, and a new 5″ screen. Looks pretty fly. [ Custom Game Gear Mod Kicks Arse! ]
