Mash-Up Monday: The Jesters of Pumpkin Hill

Sure, Mystic Mansion got its day in the limelight, but you didn’t really think I forgot about “A Ghost’s Pumpkin Soup,” did you? The definitive Sonic Halloween track quickly gained renown among fans and within the gaming community at large for hammy lyrics and dancing pumpkin men. Today, we’ll be taking a look at a little known mashup for Mash-Up Monday: Halloween 2016 Edition!

Mashup artist How2BEpic brought the infamous Pumpkin Hill to the world of Gaia, with the renowned theme combining with that of the sycophantic servants to Queen Brahne: “Jesters of the Moon” Zorn and Thorn of Final Fantasy IX. Have a listen below!

[VIDEO] The SSMB Sings “A Ghost’s Pumpkin Soup”, and Other Spooky Treats!

Ora ora ora! …rats!

Welp, it’s that spooky time of year again, when kids dress up as monsters and go door to door for free candy, when adults marathon horror movies, when spooky, scary skeletons send shivers down your spine… or when Sonic fans dust off their consoles and ain’t gonna let it get to them; they’re just gonna creep down in Pumpkin Hill in order to find their lost piece!

And that is exactly what we’re sharing with you today, for the fine folks at the Sonic Stadium Message Board have come together this holiday to sing a fabled Halloween carol: A Ghost’s Pumpkin Soup, by Tomoya Ohtani and Hunnid-P!

I shed a tear… That was utterly magnificent. Great job, SSMB, great job. I tip my hat to you all for participating!

Sonic Adventure 2 Confirmed For XBox Live Marketplace and PSN

A few weeks back we reported on several Sonic Adventure 2 items scheduled for release on the XBox Live Marketplace and a Harmonix list of future releases, both hinting at the release of the second Sonic Adventure title for download. We can now confirm that Sonic Adventure 2 will be hitting XBLA in the near future, with the game having now been listed on the Marketplace website [EDIT: Link is now dead – T].

From the details given, it looks likely that this HD version of the game will be the Sonic Adventure 2: Battle release with the listing of a “1-2 players” feature (with Chao Karate featured and the XBLA Sonic Adventure being the DX release), along with downloadable content likely to be composed of the avatar items reported earlier this month.

The current scheduled release date is the 3rd of October 2012.

At the moment there are no details as to the cost of this download – we will keep you updated as further infor becomes available.

EDIT: Thanks to Damnhedge’s eagle eyes, he’s spotted a tell-tale hint this will also be making it’s way to the PSN!

Freak-Out Friday: Pimpin’ In the Alley

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ox0eToGCy90

There’s a lesser known meme on the YouTube involving this guy dressed in all black, wearing a pumpkin mask and doing a stupid dance.  It’s such a versatile clip, as you can set just about any music to it.  The clip is from the CW affiliate in Omaha, Nebraska (KXVO) and in my four years in that state, I was unfortunate enough to not see this clip live.  College is now officially a failure.

It was brought to my attention last week by a TSS reader because Halloween is quickly approaching (plus, Pumpkin Hill is the jam, okay?).  It definitely deserves a spot here on FoF.

Have a great weekend.
