‘Tis the season to be jolly and famed video game developer Sega is certainly trying to get into the holiday spirit by offering some great deals for some of its popular titles for those of us here in North America. Between now and January 3rd, gamers will find games such from the Sonic the Hedgehog series, Jet Set Radio and Total War Battles between 99¢ and $1.99. Of course you’ll want to make sure your device has enough space to hold each game and you’ll want to set aside an hour or two (or two or three or four) in order to have time to play the addicting titles, but hey– it’s a nice problem to have, right?

Frustrated at Not Being Able to Play Sonic CD? Well, Now You Can!

I was so excited yesterday at the release of the Galaxy Nex… er… Sonic CD that I was up really early to purchase it.  For $1.99 I was pretty excited to relive my childhood glory days of playing as the blue blur on the Sega Genesis for a ridiculously low price. When I first read about this coming I was extremely stoked, so you can understand my frustration when the extra 250MB worth of files wouldn’t download. Alas, I have not been able to play Sonic CD. Luckily the Nexus came out yesterday and distracted me from the fact that these files wouldn’t download.

That was yesterday, this is today. I was frustrated at the fact that this game wouldn’t work, until now. Thanks in masses, to the folks over at Land of Droid, who were awesome enough to get a hold of these files and make them available to the rest of us. Hit the break below to download these files and follow the instructions for getting the game up and running. If you haven’t gone over and purchased the game yet, check out the links below. From what I understand the issues have been fixed, but if they haven’t, the day is saved! I don’t know about you, but it’s time for me to go stick it to Dr. Robotnik, Sonic style. » Read the rest

Sonic CD Coming to Android Later this Year

Now this is some cool news! SEGA has announced they will be bringing its classic Sonic CD game to Android. SEGA says the game is coming to “mobile phones and consoles everywhere” later this year. This announcement also says the Japanese soundtrack will be included with this re-release, which is a good thing in my opinion. The re-release of Sonic CD will be making its public debut at the Microsoft booth at PAX Prime in Seattle, August 26–28, 2011.

“SEEEEGAAAAA!” OK, I’ve got that out of my systems now. Seriously though, this will be an awesome classic to check out on a mobile device. If you need to jolt your memory on this game you’ll find a video after the break (comparing the US and Japanese soundtrack). The full press release from SEGA is included as well for your reading pleasure while you listen to the soundtrack. I know I’m excited to check this out, are you?
