Danica Patrick will appear in the Sonic Universe comic for some stupid reason
I guess I owe you an apology.
If you’re like me, you’ve been seriously considering pouring acid into your ears to finally rid your brain of the horrible image of Danica Patrick and Sonic standing together. And now here I am, forcing that awful visage right back into your bedwetting nightmares with this post. I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me.
As you can see in the pic above, the ever-so-controversial NASCAR racer will be jumping off the All-Stars Racing track and onto the page in the upcoming issue #45 of Sonic Universe. The special issue will place special focus on Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed, with characters like Jet Set Radio’s Beat and Skies of Arcadia’s Vyse also making an appearance.
I’ve never been privy to any of Sonic’s comic book excursions, but I can imagine Patrick’s intrusion to be rather irksome. Does anybody care?

The Nintendo/Sega announcements just keep on coming, with the latest news revealing that last year’s Yakuza 1 & 2 HD is now coming to the Wii U in Japan. Of course, this means the addition of some new Wii U-exclusive features, including off-TV play. This announcement comes as quite the shock, as Team Yakuza’s long-running crime saga has…

More like “BAAAAAAHHH-st Processing,” am I right? Well played, Sega. I’m still far more interested in trying my hand at Sega Bass Fishing of the Dead, but I have to admit that drowning in Sonic 2 would be a little less infuriating if I got to hear the bloodcurdling scream of a goat each and every time it…

On a recent episode of the BBC program Countryfile, the Prince of Wales got in a little bit of time at the arcade, burning some rubber in Sega Touring Car Championship. The folks over at Sonic Wrecks managed to snag this shot. The ball’s in your court, Obama. [Source: Sonic Wrecks]

While many flinched at the underwhelming launch figures of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, that doesn’t mean this wonderful racer doesn’t have at least one or two commendable notches in its belt. Perhaps the most impressive achievement is the fact that Sumo Digital’s racer just topped the sales charts for Wii U games, beating out Nintendo Land, New Super…

Bizarre oddities they may be, Bug Blasters and Star Strike are actually very rare retro collectors items. These FMV games (originally made by Sony) were dropped before release despite being ready to unleash on those unfortunate enough to own a Sega CD. The rights to both games were then bought in 2001 by Good Deal…

Not at all being conceited, Lycett points out that he has a lot of respect for Nintendo’s kart racer, but feels something new could be added,…
