Sega announce Sonic CD release


Most of the Sonic games have been re-released other the years on various platforms, as part of compilations or stand alone downloads. On the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, the original Sonic the hedgehog is available to download, as well as Sonic 2, Sonic 3 and Sonic and Knuckles and the 2011 Sonic game, Sonic the hedgehog 4: Episode 1. One game that always seems to be missed from these releases has been Sonic CD. For all those who have been waiting for Sega to release Sonic CD on the PS3 or Xbox 360, there’s good news. Sega have announced that they plan to convert the Mega CD classic for release on Xbox Live, PSN, iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Windows Phone 7, Android and Windows PC Digital Download. At the moment, it doesn’t look like Sega will be bringing the game to the Wii.

Crysis 2 Leaked

Crysis 2 was scheduled for release on the 22nd of March, but that doesn’t mean anything to people who want a game and will release a game into the gaming world for us heathens to play ahead of time.

So a late developement build of Crysis 2 has gone up on certain sites, it includes the full game, including multiplayer.  It also includes the DRM Solidshield master key files, which only handles the online activation. No one is sure where the leak came from, but it’s especially damaging because the game is near to being declared gold and shipping to retailers.

The Grateful Dead Get A Videogame

I don’t know about y’all but this is the most exciting video game news I have heard in a year. You can tell I like the Grateful Dead already? Well I do, they play music like I play video games, with reckless abandonment and somehow it turns out in a positive light.

The surviving band members gave the project their blessing, but the agreement was brokered by Rhino Entertainment, the Warner Music Group subsidiary that has managed all of the band’s intellectual property since 2006.

“We can’t wait for everyone check out the fun new toys we are building,” said David Lemieux, the band’s longtime archivist, in a statement.

Activision Adds EA to $400 Million Infinity Ward Lawsuit

Activision fired a shot at its biggest rival, accusing fellow publisher Electronic Arts of “hijack[ing] Activision assets for personal greed and corporate gain.”

Activision is seeking $400 million from the three defendant parties.

Kotaku has the full text of the 39-page document, which claims that the Medal of Honor publisher “set out to destabilize, disrupt and to attempt to destroy Infinity Ward.”

I for one wished I could have sued EA back when they bought all rights to NFL games a few years back.  It looks like EA might be a bully in the the video game world, hopefully no more after this lawsuit.

Gears of War 3 Beta Slated for April, There’s A Catch Though.

Epic Games will give early access to the Gears of War 3 beta to anyone who buys Bulletstorm for Xbox 360, the publisher said Friday.

This has to be one of the most highly anticipated games for 2011, but is it worth paying full price for a game “Bulletstorm” that you might not even like? Microsoft and Epic seem to be dangling the carrot out in front of us but who will bite it? For me I knew I was buying Gears of War 3 the second I finished Gears 2, as I think a lot of people did.

I guess sales numbers will tell in February providing Bulletstorm isn’t postponed.

Mass Effect 3 Announced for Holiday 2011

I don’t know about you, but this is serious news to this Girl Gamer. I find that action RPG’s are the way to go and this one is the champion in my world. The final title in the Mass Effect trilogy will again feature Commander Shepard as battles an invasion of Earth by the Reapers. Commander Shepard is to the Mass Effect series what Laura Croft is to Tomb Raider, providing you select the female option like I do every time. Of course this is all my opinion, but play the game and you will see what I am talking about.

Tiger Woods Needs to Start Winning for Partnership to “Make Sense” in the Long Run, EA Says

Looks as if Tiger Woods may be getting the boot from EA if he continues his golf game slump.  EA has prided itself of having the  number one golfer on the cover of it’s games and since Tiger has now dropped to the number two golfer in the world EA may change their front man to keep that tradition alive.

Speaking with Reuters (via NBC Sports), EA CEO John Ricitiello reiterated that there’s “no threat against Tiger.” But he also noted what he referred to as their business relationship.
