I have no shame in admitting I’m a big fan of the OC Remix themed albums, as they are on a constant loop in my playlists. From the preview above, it looks like another album is about to be added to my library. Combining 25 remixes from 30 different artists, Temporal Duality is themed after Sonic CD, and covers both the international and North American soundtracks. The video above sums up the album best, along with the fact that it will release sometime this year. Keep your eyes here for when the album lands on the internet. Any particular track that you enjoyed? I’m a fan of the Sonic Boom (Instrumental Reprise) near the end.

Believe it or not, Sonic fans are still discovering little secrets in the blue blur’s earlier games years after release. In the video above you can see how the Sonic 3 data select music changes once you listen to it for over 47 minutes.
Is it a bug? Was it intentional? Why 47 minutes? Let us know what you think in the comments section below!

It’s been a while since The Sega Addicts Kids Table subjected you to another hour of (some) Sega discussion but here it is! A new episode! And since this is the first with our new bi-weekly schedule Stevie, Josh, and John decide to treat you with a Staind reference! You remember them right? Someone has to.
Well even if you don’t there’s still a ton to enjoy as the gang wax lyrical about everything from Sega’s Playstation 4 reaction, to our dream horror movie games and beyond! We even give our final analysis of Aliens: Colonial Marines in case you weren’t sick of hearing about that abomination just yet. So put down that grunge CD, stop cutting yourself and enjoy once again! It’s been a while indeed.
Or go to our iTunes and subscribe! Review us and I will get Staind to play at your wedding!
If you like videogames in any capacity then chances are you’ve come across OC ReMix at some point in your internet travels. For those not in the know, (and you really should be) OC ReMix is a site that encourages fans with musical talent to cover classic videogame tunes and share them. Once in a while they’ll even put out free albums as tributes to a specific game using the very many talented members of their community. It’s a very awesome site, which is about to get even more awesome as they plan to celebrate the Saturn’s 20th Birthday next year with a tribute album of it’s very own!
OC ReMix user ‘Dave the Rave’ set up the project, and is currently reaching out to interested artists in this forum thread. The conceptual track list is almost complete and is set to feature music inspired by NiGHTS Into Dreams, Burning Rangers, Guardian Heroes, and even more. It’s definitely one to keep an eye on and I personally can’t wait to hear the finished album on it’s projected release of November 22nd, 2014.

To commemorate the Phantasy Star series 25th anniversary Sega have decided to go all out with a full blown orchestra concert. This Japan-only exclusive show (conducted by Masamichi Amano, and performed by the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra) will cover the entire spectrum of this series, giving one of gamings most recognisable RPG franchise’s a proper celebration. The concert itself will feature 10 different songs, and if that wasn’t enough reason to go everyone coming will receive exclusive music themed items for hugely popular Phantasy Star Online 2!
Above you can see the trailer for the concert which mainly just shows off the new items available at the concert. The event itself will take place on March 30th in the Hibiya Public Hall, Tokyo, and is sure to be a blast for all involved! Who knows maybe if they like it enough in Japan it’ll make it’s way over to the West… right? Right? Right?!!
Man who remembers this show? Way back in 1990 it seems Sega didn’t think their furry blue mascot was rockin’ enough, so they decided to put together this gem on a cartoon: Sonic Underground. That’s right, have you ever desperately wanted to hear the tale of Sonic and two characters no one’s heard of before, go on a hardcore rock odyssey of adventure? No? Well if you have a change of heart then the good news is that all 40 episodes of the original series are up for grabs on iTunes!
The whole series is spread across two volumes at $27.99 each. However if you want to relive your cheesy nostalgia in bite sized chunks then single episodes can be purchased for about $2.
It should be noted that this is the first Sonic cartoon to make it onto iTunes, so if you want to support future ventures it may be a good idea to give this a shot. But here’s the biggest dilemma… does anyone actually remember this show fondly? Anyone? If so leave me a comment explaining why, and if this iTunes collection is for you.

Vocaloid lovers have another opportunity to rejoice because a special edition Hatsune Miku controller is available for cheeky importers to buy! Sites such as Play-Asia will be offering the controller for around $160, although cheaper deals are sure to pop up soon. But if you thought that was expensive then you’d be dead wrong compared to the controllers bigger brother which is due to go for $400 at least.
Consumers will also have the option to choose between a white or black controller. The product is meant to simulate the arcade experience for Project Diva F on the PS3 which is bound to delight fans when it makes it’s way to Japan (and importers homes) later this year.
Sonic and Sega fans are some of the most vocal regarding their passions. Sometimes we can be a little too vocal, and other times that passion sprouts great creativity. This is one of those creative cases, with Mister Wilson’s latest album entitled Sonic FreEP. The album is a nice little excursion into Sonic fandom with tracks using samples from Sonic games, as well as SATAM sound clips. One song does a good job of relating to the Archie Comic series, while another uses Living in the City’s chorus from Sonic R coupled with rhymes and beats of Mister Wilson’s own nature. Check it out in the source link, and if you dig it, be sure to download it since it’s FREE (my favorite price). Also, let us know what you think in the comments.
Even though Sonic 06 and it’s follow up Sonic Unleashed are often considered to not be the best of Sonic experiences the soundtracks still stand out as the best parts of it. I say this because Sega has recently put up both soundtracks on iTunes without warning. These soundtracks span three 3 discs and cost about $10 a pop. Each single track is a dollar.
As I said these tunes are up right now so you can give em a download and enjoy the sweet sounds of whiny soft core rock (not so much for Sonic Unleashed, that OST is legitimately good). Now if only Sonic 06 was as good as it’s guilty pleasure soundtrack…
