Soundtrack Tsunami







With gameplay videos placed on hold for now, fifteen tracks from Sonic Generations have been uploaded: Chemical Plant, Sky Sanctuary, Metal Sonic, Death Egg Robot, and remixed classic tunes played in the Challenges, Balloon Park and Super Sonic Racing.

Expect another huge wave of soundtracks from Sonic Generations next week. For those of you who are impatiently waiting for some download links for the music, please wait a little more. I am still finishing organizing and compiling the tracks, though at the same time, busy with more important priorities to finish.

Updates: November 2011



As most of you have already noticed in my YouTube channel, the first gameplay videos of Sonic Generations have been posted despite that the remaining gameplay videos of Shadow the Hedgehog are still yet to be posted. Until the remaining gameplay vidoes have been posted, brace yourself for an overload of gameplay videos of Shadow the Hedgehog and Sonic Generations. The two games' gameplay videos will be alternately posted; Shadow the Hedgehog gameplay videos will be posted first, and Sonic Generations gameplay videos will be posted the following day.

Additionally, please note that since I am not completely finished with Sonic Generations yet, expect some delays in the posting of gameplay videos of Sonic Generations beginning with the Dreamcast era stages of the game (Speed Highway, City Escape, and Seaside Hill). Hopefully, I will finish the core of the game as soon as possible in order to post gameplay videos in a steady time flow of every other day, just as it is with the previous series of gameplay videos of other games that have been posted.

Also, most of you have noticed that, in this blog, there is a weekly mini-quiz on testing your recognition skills and guessing the character from the Sonic the Hedgehog series that will appear in the next wallpaper (courtesy of Sonic Channel) for download and personal customization of your computers or other electronic devices.

Lastly, the soundtracks of Sonic Generations (unofficial), the first three games of the Sonic the Hedgehog series, Sonic CD, and Sonic The Fighters (Sonic Championship) will be posted on this blog for download for personal entertainment soon.

For now, sit tight and stay tuned.

Sonic Generations Released



As already anticipated, Sonic Generations has been released for PlayStation 3 and XBOX 360 in North America, Europe, and Australia. The 3DS version of the game will be released to the same continents in a few weeks. Japan, unfortunately, will get its console and 3DS copies next month.

The soundtrack and gameplay from the PlayStation 3 version of the game will be posted as soon as gameplay from Shadow the Hedgehog is finished. For now, sit tight, stay tuned, and/or buy and play your copy of the game if you haven't done so already.

Sonic Generations - It's No Use.

Sonic crossed paths with many foes who want to impede his adventures.

They include Metal Sonic, in the "classic" era...



...Shadow, in the "Dreamcast" era...



...and, in the "modern" era, Silver.



SEGA of America officially announced that Silver, along with Metal Sonic and Shadow, will be one of Sonic's rivals in Sonic Generations.

It's no use.

I Am... All of Me.



As probably expected, the next set of gameplay videos will focus on "Shadow the Hedgehog" for the Nintendo Gamecube. A-Rank gameplay of each stage and each side will be posted every other day for a total time frame of about a month or so - almost perfect timing for gameplay videos from Sonic Generations, which will be due as soon as the game is released next month.

This Is [Not Yet] Halloween



Let's get away from SEGA, Sonic Team, Sonic Generations, video games, and other things one more time. Additionally, I shall, once again, [somewhat] go out of character.

Several visual kei (or visual rock, a musical subgenre of Japanese rock and Japanese metal) bands collaborated on an album released on September 14 showcasing covers of notable songs from various Disney movies, old and new. One of the songs that caught my attention was the Japanese metal band Sadie's cover of the opening theme of Tim Burton's "The Nightmare Before Christmas," "This Is Halloween." This song caught my attention [not just primarily because Sadie is one of my favorite bands, but] because I have listened to another cover of the song by another metal artist (which seems appropriate) - Marilyn Manson.

If you are curious to listen, then go ahead and listen.
