Mash-Up Monday: The Level Beyond Adventure

What better way to celebrate the upcoming release of Sonic Adventure 2 HD on XBLA, PSN, and PC, than with this ?

We’ve got quite a super Mash-Up Monday for you all today! Those who cannot withstand mash-up power levels exceeding 9000 are advised to proceed with caution. (There, I just saved you all the joke.)

The main theme to the Dreamcast classic, Crush 40’s Live and Learn, fuses with Bruce Faulconer’s SSJ3 Ascension theme from Dragonball Z to commemorate this great occasion! Super Sonic and Super Saiyan Goku? Now that, I dig.

Slam-Up Jamday: Adventure 2

Because “Act 1” didn’t sound epic enough.

Hello readers, and welcome back to a special second edition of Slam-Up Jamday! If the rumours circulating around SASASR2 don’t add your needed slam jam on your morning toast, then this surely will!

Like its predecessor, this week’s Mash-Up Monday brings you another batch of Sonic music mashed up with Quad City DJs’ infamous  “Space Jam”, the main theme for the movie bearing the same name. As you may have guessed, we’re looking at a couple of slam-ups with famous tunes from Sonic Adventure 2!

With that out of the way, dust off your SEGA Jamcast as we continue to follow the adventures of Slamnic the Hedgehog and friends!

Now, back to adventure! *badum-TSH*

Freak-Out Friday: Eggman dies in next Sonic game

If it wasn’t obvious the following video contains spoilers.

I’m at a loss for words. Who’d have thought that Sonic Team’s fervent interest of shoehorning numerous monsters, demons and demigods as antagonists would lead them so far as to remove one gaming’s most beloved, memorable villains altogether?

Crush 40 Currently Working on New Songs

Last year saw Crush 40 release a one-off single Song of Hope dedicated to the Japanese Tsunami disaster victims, which was the first new non-Sonic themed track since those that featured on  Super Sonic Songs back in 2009. Many fans have been keen to see Jun Senoue and Johnny Gioeli team up once more in order to produce a full-blown Crush 40 album, the likes of which have not been seen since their self-titled album back in 2003 (which was a re-working of their album Thrill of the Feel from way back in 2000 when they went by the name ‘Sons of Angels’).

However, it looks increasingly like a new Crush 40 album may be in the works, with Senoue posting a teasing image on facebook and twitter with the statement:

“Just want to let you know the name of the songs we are currently working on. Yes, new Crush 40 songs! “

The new tracks look set to be titled Rise Again, One of Those Days, and Sonic Youth – the latter appears to give a nod to the Sonic Adventure title tracks, with the opening verses of “I’ve opened my heart, I’ve lived and learned”.

Hopefully we will have more information on any potential future releases very soon!
