(IS THE CAPS LOCK STILL ON, OH WAITAMINUTE, there we go. Much better.) When Dr. Eggman sponsors a go-kart race around Sonic’s Island home, you know that dude is up to no good. The rules are as follows: no special powers, no weapons, and everyone has to drive a kart to keep things fair. Since when does Eggy care about “fair”? What will happen to throw this race into a SPIN? How many rhetorical questions can we ask in one paragraph of solicit text?? Find out in this hyperbole-packed issue!

Sonic Generations (along with Viking: Battle for Asgard) have been unlocked for the beat-the-average tier, which currently sits at a mere $3.72.

Generations is a solid port. Also, be sure to check out the excellent Unleashed Project mod too!

As mentioned before, if you already bought the dollar tier, you can upgrade your purchase through the bundle key page Humble sent you. And if you already beat the average, then the extra games should be waiting for you on that page too.

Go grab it here!

For a mere dollar you can get the Dreamcast Collection, NiGHTS into Dreams, and Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed for PC on Steam!

The Dreamcast Collection includes Sonic Adventure DX, along with Crazy Taxi, Space Channel 5: Part 2, and Sega Bass Fishing. Those ports are kinda crappy but Sega has recently been working to update and fix them up a bit.

NiGHTS is solid though. And Racing Transformed is pretty much one of the best kart racers ever.

More games will be unlocked for the beat-the-average tier next week. Maybe more Sonic games will be included? Maybe. Either way, you could buy the dollar tier now and upgrade later. (The average price to beat will be locked to whatever it was when you bought the bundle. Typically it only goes up over time, but not by too much.)

Go grab it!

Sonic Boom in the US for whatever reason has a very short intro. Time constraints, most likely. This isn't the case for French audiences. It's still quite generic.

Nintendo unveiled a new wave of amiibo figurines for Super Smash Bros., including Sonic and ten other characters. Like the rest of the Smash amiibos, Sonic here is based on his official character portrait from the game:

If ya didn't know, amiibos are used in Smash Bros as personalized computer characters. You can customize their movesets and attributes, pitting them against other players or amiibos, levelling them up in the process. Sorta like a virtual pet? But without having to actually take care of them and stuff.

amiibo figures also store information identifying the character they depict. So, being a Sonic amiibo, it could potentially be used with other Sonic games, assuming they actually include amiibo support. So... neat.

The Sonic amiibo is set to release worldwide in February 2015. Check out the full lineup on the official site. Also here's the packaging. There it is.

(And yes I know this is several days late!!!)

According to Cartoon Network's official site, Sonic Boom will premiere next week Nov 8th at 7am eastern. The pilot will be "Sidekick/Can an Evil Genius Crash on Your Couch for a Few Weeks"

Now this may seem concerning. You may be thinking no sane person on this earth will get up at 7 am. Recall though that the target demographic is for kids ages 6-11 and 7 am for them isn't that bad... unless it's central time where it would then be at 6 am. Then I am sorry for them. I recall Sonic Underground being on at 6 am. Not fun.
