Friday Five: Best Sonic Games of the Past Generation

sonic_generations_cityescape2

While we’ve had the Wii U for a full year now, the PS4 and X-Box One have made their debut. Since Sonic Lost World is part of the new generation of systems, I thought it would be a good time to reflect back on the best Sonic games of this past Generation. It was a hard list to make, not because there was a ton of great Sonic games to choose from but because there were so few to be brutally honest. Also, I have one rule to this list, no spinoffs. This means no Mario and Sonic or All-Stars Racing. (I should have been stricter with the staff pics and added no remakes or fan games but too little too late.) I wanted this to focus solely on Sonic. This means there’s a game in here that wouldn’t normally make any top five list. So prepare for the good, the great and the…..meh.

NOTE: This is an opinionated article and everyone’s gonna have their favorites, so if your list is different from mine that’s fine but let’s make a huge fuss over it okay?

Pre-Order Now: First 4 Figures Sonic Generations “City Escape” Diorama

f4fgenerationsstatue1

Chances are if you wanted one of these you’ve already pre-ordered by now, but here you go anyway. First 4 Figures have opened pre-orders for their Sonic statue, however unlike previous editions, this is part of their new ‘diorama’ range.

The scene depicts modern and classic Sonic skateboarding through the iconic City Escape stage as depicted in Sonic Generations. Whilst the statue may get a lot of you excited, some may end up being priced out of these as they’re VERY expensive!

The standard edition is limited to 1000 units and costs $299.99 (£185)

The ‘exclusive’ edition is limited to 450 units and costs $329.99 (£204)

However, don’t forget those prices do not include shipping, for people living in the UK you’re looking at an extra $30 on top of that.

Now for a limited time F4F have issued discount codes for each statue which takes $25 off the regular and $30 off the exclusive.

Also if you are interested in pre-ordering, please be aware of what the statue will actually look like when you get it, the image at the top is very eye catching but it also has a lot of photoshopped effects that will not be on the final statue, this is a more true to life image of what it will look like.

So, anyone here got a pre-order down?

Mash-Up Monday: Generations of a Lost World – TENDERONI Cinema

And now, for something completely different, here’s a quirky yet pretty cool mash-up TailsChannel put together not too long ago!

When Sonic Generations was formally announced by SEGA through a trailer showcasing Sonics classic and modern in action, many were quick to discover that the track used in the anniversary title’s first preview was Kele’s TENDERONI.

With the trailer to Sonic Lost World gone online via a pre-E3 Nintendo Direct, it was soon pointed out that the tune accompanying the video was none other than Benny Banasi and Gary Go’s Cinema.

I don’t think I have to tell you much else about what we’re showing off for Mash-Up Monday!
