TR Member Perks!

Ready to go fast? Humble Bundle is offering up a large collection of Sonic games for the next two weeks, and you can score 12 Sonic games (plus more in the future!) for only $10.

As usual the bundle is broken into several tiers. The first tier is a $1 tier and includes four games. Sonic the Hedgehog is the game that started it all, the 2D platformer original that introduced Sonic to the world. Sonic Adventures DX is an updated rerelease of a Gamecube game that is an updated re-release of the Dreamcast hit and is considered one of Sonic’s best attempts at a 3D platformer. Sonic 3D Blast was Sonic’s first foray into 3D and is an isometric platformer that was quite different from other Sonic games at the time. Finally, you’ll also get Sonic CD, another 2D platformer where Sonic must travel through time to rescue Amy in her first appearance in the Sonic series. It should be noted that Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic 3D Blast are not standalone games, but rather DLC for the Sega Mega Drive & Genesis Classics hub. You will get the hub for free just for owning DLC for it, however. You’ll also get a 10% coupon for the Humble Monthly Bundle.

Sonic Generations

The second tier is the beat the average tier, and at the present time it’s set to the price of $9.61 which is strange as it nearly beats the $10 third tier. This tier has four more games in it. Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 was the first numbered Sonic game to release since 1994 and was another 2D platformer that tried to bring back the classic Sonic formula. Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing is Sega’s answer to Mario Kart and sees Sonic and other Sega franchises race in go-karts. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is one of the most famous titles in the series and introduced Tails to the series. Finally, you’ll get Sonic Adventure 2 along with the Battle DLC for the game. This game was the introduction of both Shadow and Rogue to the series, and also considered one of the best 3D platformers that Sonic has been involved with. Similar to the first tier, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is actually DLC for the Sega Mega Drive & Genesis Classics hub. More games will be added to this tier next week.

Sometimes, a copyright claim can feel like a whale about to slam its force down on you.

Sonic Adventures DX

The third tier is set at a price of $10 and has four more games. Sonic Lost World is a port of a Nintendo Wii U 3D platformer that attempted to use some of the ideas that were popularized by Super Mario Galaxy. Sonic Generations, which will come with the Casino Nights DLC, is often considered one of the best recent Sonic games and sees classic and modern Sonic teaming up with both gameplay styles. Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 2 is a continuation of the first episode and reintroduced Tails to the games. Finally Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, which comes with the Metal Sonic & Outrun and Ryo Hazuki DLC. This game is the sequel to Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing and sees you now racing in the air and on the sea as well. It should be noted that there is a fourth $35 tier which nets you a special Sonic 25th Anniversary T-Shirt.

The Humble Sonic 25th Anniversary Bundle is going to be available until Tuesday, July 5th.
