Sonic Adventure 2 HD Grinds Online This Fall

Posted on July 14, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

Sonic Adventure 2, one of the best 3D Sonic titles from the last generation will be grinding its way onto the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation network later this fall. The announcement was made at the San Diego Comic Con, after word about the port leaked online a few months back.

SEGA’s brief trailer announcing the title acknowledges the leaks, stating that the game will “leak on to consoles this fall”. Not much else is known about the HD port of the game but if the 2009 port of Crazy Taxi and the 2010 port of the original Sonic Adventure are any indication they’ll be up-rezed versions of the Dreamcast original with achievements and possibly the GameCube exclusive Battle multiplayer modes.

I’ve played Adventure 2 on both the GameCube and Dreamcast and both versions still remain in my gaming collection until this day. I look forward to grinding down the streets of City Escape on my SOAP shoes.. Damn product placement, it’s still effective 11 years later.

Posted on July 14, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

Rockband’s catalog of downloadable song gets a little more indie with Young The Giant’s “My Body”, revives an 80s classic with the B52’s “Love Shack” and goes a little nu-metal with “Not Again” from Staind’s 2011 self-titled album.

All three of these tracks will be available on July 17th and are priced at $1.99 (160MSP) individually and $0.99 (80MSP) for the optional pro-guitar upgrade.


Battlefield 4 Beta Access Included With MOH: Warfighter?

Posted on July 14, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

EA’s Origin service may have leaked the existence of Battlefield 4 early. Promotional banners for Medal of Honor: Warfighter promised users who pre-order the game exclusive access to the Battlefield 4 beta. THeadvertisements where spotted by users on NEOGAF and IGN before being pulled by Electronic Arts shortly after their existence was made public.

There is no solid proof that Battlefield 4 is even a real game, these banners are the first public omission of the game, and as such they could have been a mockup or placeholder of some kind. But considering the fact that Battlefield 3 was tested in the manual for the original Medal of Honor and Warfighter was teased in Battlefield 3’s case, there is a precedent for BF4’s existence.

As I feared, the Steam summer sale has continued, and it shows no signs of abating before the 22nd. I tried to fight it, but I eventually gave into the temptation and bought some games. My friend better enjoy Space Marine, because that’s one submarine sandwich that I’ll never be able to eat.
