Remember when we used to do commentaries here at Sega Addicts? No? Well an old writer Sven used to sit down and put together some footage and slap our horrible voices all over it. However one stormy night Sven left the site in the middle of our Sonic 4: Episode 2 commentary with Josh Newey, leaving the saga incomplete and empty.
…until now! As you can see above we finally have access to the lost videos for your enjoyment. Sonic 4: Episode 2 is no longer relevant though but if you don’t mind hearing us blabber on about weird nonsense (I haven’t watched this since) with a slightly rubbish videogame on in the background, then these lost treats are for you my friend. You can see the final part in this commentary after the jump, and if you’re new to these videos you can even check out Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3!
Who knows maybe one day we could even get this going again. Meh, that’ll probably never happen. Ever. Nope. Nada. No way… now hit the jump and stop thinking about that…
Oh and enjoy!
Remember when Sonic Underground made it’s way to iTunes? Well as it turns out the old Sonic cartoons do surprisingly well in the iThing download market. However Apple doesn’t get all the fun now as BlackBerry using fans have blue rodent themed cartoons to look forward to thanks to DHX Media. The distributor signed a contract with BlackBerry to use and disburse more than 1000 episodes worth of television from their licences, which include all three Sonic cartoons, as well as a Christmas special. This only applies to the US, Canada, and the UK however.
Either way there shouldn’t be long to wait before all you BlackBerry users out there can experience Sonic Underground on the go! Lucky you… I guess…

Underplayed third person shooter Binary Domain may get some more love hopefully now that it’s one of Microsoft’s prestigious ‘Games on Demand’. Basically this means that you don’t have to go exploring your favorite stores for a ludicrously cheap copy of the game because now you can buy it from the comfort of XBLA! And it’s only $20 to download, a reasonable cost considering it’s budget price tag elsewhere.
However keep in mind the game is over 7 GB so you might want to save up some space on your Xbox before blasting down some robot scum. Now lets just keep our fingers crossed that this version of the game might sell well…
With the Ouya making its way to stores soon it’s time to start looking at what games the Android console can provide us with. Double Fine is actually going to be adding their Sega collaboration The Cave to the system in a bid to add to the machines log of exciting downloadable titles. However don’t get too excited over that idea just yet as producer Greg Rice has confirmed that development of the Ouya port hasn’t even started yet.
Double Fine’s other game, Reds (that Kick-started adventure game) will also be coming to the console, although release dates are of course still in the air at this point. The console itself is due to surface in June and I’m personally very happy to see Sega have some (admittedly small) presence on the new console. Who knows, maybe if this does well it will prompt Sega to look to the Ouya for more releases. In the meantime you can check out our review of The Cave right here if you want to know what to expect when the game will make its way to the Ouya in the near future.
A little birdie has slipped that ToeJam & Earl may be venturing to the PlayStation Network in the future with both of their Sega Genesis/Megadrive games. With the recent Vintage Collection releases, and other games slated for release, this news may not come as a total shock to some. As a fan of the 16-bit iterations of TJ&E’s adventures, I can say that this would be an awesome addition to any digital library even though they have seen life on the Wii’s Virtual Console already. This release also sparks the faint idea: will ToeJam & Earl be announced as additional racers in Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed? For the love of funk, I hope so!
What say you, fair funky friends?
Unfortunately in 2009 Bionic Commando Rearmed developer Grin was made defunct due to financial difficulties and money problems. While it’s sad for any company to close down, it may have been worse for Sega fans due to a shelved Streets of Rage remake which has been revealed in a recent post over at eurogamer.
The only information that we know of is that it was to be a downloadable title and that there wasn’t a lot of work put into it before it was cancelled. However there are still some screenshots and concept art floating about on the internet. Want to see ‘em? Go on then, hit the jump to see some lost concept art and screenshots of the working build!
I know there are a lot of mixed opinions out there about this game. Personally I enjoyed it. However recent sales figures posted by Major Nelson show that maybe I’m not the only one. Major Nelson, Director of Programming for XBL, normally posts how well download games sell for XBLA and has just added the Windows 7 phone to the charts as well. Sonic 4: Episode 1 was the most downloaded game last week on the phone. Pretty cool for a game that’s been out for quite some time on every other platform to be doing so well.

A new digital download service Dixons Downloads is running a campaign to get people registered. If you register for the site, which is free, you can pick one of two different four packs of SEGA games. Unfortunately one of the packs is already sold out, but there is still a chance to get Sonic & SEGA All-Star Racing for free. This is only available to those in the UK, so take advantage of it for me gents. You need to hurry on this one, it won’t last long.
Renegade Ops is a downloadable top down shooter being developed by Avalanche Studios, the guys behind Just Cause 2. Sega has just started to roll out some information on what the game is all about. The game will feature massive explosions, online and local multiplayer, online leaderboards and some impressive physics.
They are claiming it to be a mix of the A-Team, G.I. Joe, and Micro Machines. I don’t know about you, but that sounds awesome. The trailer is short but very impressive, displaying the massive explosions and the chaos quite well.
The game is set to release digitally this summer on Xbox Live, PSN, and PC.
