Sonic The Hedgehog #52

Wed Aug 24, 2022 11 d

Every Badnik is on high alert in Eggperial City! It’s going to take some quick thinking from Sonic and crew to escape undetected. Meanwhile, Surge plots her comeback-she needs more power, and she needs it now.

Sonic The Hedgehog #53

Wed Sep 28, 2022 46 d

Surge is angry, and she’s about to make it everyone’s problem… At least everyone in Central City. Sonic’s friends race to stop her rampage, but there’s something different about her. Something…more powerful.

StH: Scrapnik Island #1

Wed Oct 19, 2022 67 d

It was a dark and stormy night. Harsh rain from an unnatural storm fell upon Sonic the Hedgehog and Miles “Tails” Prower as they flew above the sea in the Tornado. Lightning strikes, causing the plane to spiral downward into a crash landing on an uncharted island. What Sonic and Tails will soon learn is that the island is no island at all, but the floating remains of the Death Egg. Scrapped, rusted, and malfunctioning Badniks call this place home. Can the friends survive isolation on an island of robots programmed to destroy them?

Sonic The Hedgehog #54

Wed Oct 26, 2022 74 d

Coming to you live from Central City! There appears to be a malfunction with all electronics. Traffic lights are all green, TVs are smoking, and microwaves are beeping nonstop. Can Sonic the Hedgehog save us by lunchtime? I need to warm up my burrito! Stay tuned! Sonic and Tails race to Central City to stop Surge’s rampage, but they’re no match for her this time around.

    Sega reveals the Game Gear Micro??

    Today marks Sega's 60th anniversary, and to commemorate it, they've announced… the Game Gear Micro…! It comes in 4 different colors, each with (only) 4 different games:

    • Black: Sonic the Hedgehog, Puyo Puyo Tsuu, OutRun, Royal Stone
    • Blue: Sonic & Tails (aka Sonic Chaos), Gunstar Heroes, Sylvan Tale, Baku Baku Animal
    • Yellow: Shining Force Gaiden, Shining Force Gaiden II, Shining Force Gaiden: Final Conflict, Nazo Puyo Arle no Roux
    • Red: Megami Tensei Gaiden: Last Bible, Megami Tensei Gaiden: Last Bible Special, The GG Shinobi, Columns

    The screen measures in at a microscopic 1.15 inches. The unit runs on 2 AAA batteries, or can be powered by USB. It has a mono speaker, but includes a headphone jack for stereo sound. It was developed by the Genesis Mini team, including M2.

    The Game Gear Micro will launch on October 6 and retails for 4980 yen (roughly $50 USD). There seems to be a couple different collector sets, and preordering all 4 units will net you… the “Big Window Micro”… a miniaturized screen magnifyer that allows you to actually see the screen!

    This is totally goofy, and totally gimmicky, but as someone who likes tiny electronics, I still find it pretty charming. I'm doubting it'll see a western release (at least not with these game lineups). If you're thinking of importing one, I'd say the blue one would have the smallest language barrier.
