The Dreamcast version of Sonic Adventure has received its first brand new downloadable content in nearly twenty years, thanks to the efforts of the Dreamcast community. This new DLC, called “Tikal’s Challenge,” has players traveling back to the past as Sonic to find five chao lost in the ancient echidna city. They’re tasked with finding the chao as quickly as possible, and bringing them to the Master Emerald shrine.
This year is the 20th Anniversary of the Western release of the Sega Dreamcast and flagship launch title Sonic Adventure (its European anniversary was actually yesterday)! But, while everyone can talk about the game’s original release until the cows come home, a lot less remembered is its Gamecube/PC port, Sonic Adventure DX. Let’s take a Look Back at it!

That’s pretty much Sonic’s main gaming history not including side games and Colors. Even if you have these games on other consoles, it’d be kinda nice to have them all together on your P.C. Don’tcha think? It doesn’t say when this sale ends, but I’m sure it won’t last too long.
Let’s kick off the New Year of Freak-Out Fridays with an oldie but a goodie!

And then he had a bit too much fun with his Sonic Gamecube titles.
Sonic Adventure DX: Director’s Cut, Sonic Adventure 2: Battle, Sonic Heroes, and Shadow the Hedgehog are put to the test in this 20+ minute compilation of hacks and laughs! Part 2 is found after the jump!
Now here’s a classic!
Now how many of you aren’t familiar with Gloria Gaynor’s I Will Survive? It’s only been played a million times over the past few decades!
Whether you are familiar with the tune or not, here’s a mash-up of it and At Dawn… for Speed Highway, brought to you by MegaMacTV!
Found an interesting mash-up somewhere on the world wide web? Have one of your own? If yes, then send what you have over to firstname.lastname@example.org!

…but now, he sets foot on Angel Island’s Red Mountain zone.
Mod by Mefiresu!

I hope this makes up for what I’ve put you all through on Friday… but who am I kidding? I love torturing you guys every once in a while!
Tune in for additional jams next week!
Found an interesting mash-up somewhere on the net? Mashed one together yourself? If you’ve answered yes to either of these questions, then send them over to email@example.com!
This may be possibly the most late Freak Out Friday yet, but that doesn’t change the nature of this video.

According to a recent ratings entry at the Australian classifications board the OFLC it looks like we could be getting a new port/remake of the Sonic Adventure Gamecube/PC port Sonic Adventure DX: Director’s Cut. All we know right now is this new entry was rated on the 18th August 2009 as ‘G General’ and will be multi-platform.
The original port basically added some glossy changes to character models, a mission mode and all 12 Sonic Game Gear games. There’s no limit to what a new version on current consoles could add to the game if Sonic Team really worked at it.
We’ll be keeping an eye out for any future info/media on this, so stay tuned.

Now, the Gamecube version seemed to have the same graphics as the PS2 version, when in reality the GC could have easily had the same performance as Xbox. A shame, that.Continue reading Sonic Adventure DX Preview: The Problem With Ports
