If you’re having trouble wiling away the hours until Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit is finally available for download, Sega has announced a solution that will help you test your writing skills…and your thirst for vengeance.
Following in the sinful footsteps of Hell Yeah’s protagonist Ash, Sega would like you to write out, in 500 words or less, your best idea of a devious revenge scenario. Of course, they want your entries to remain playful in nature, and to refrain from naming any actual people.
While this contest already sounds pretty fun, I’ve got to say the Hell Yeah! prize pack really makes this thing worth while. It includes a limited edition Ash statue (!!!), a Hell Yeah! t-shirt, and a free copy of the game. The contest is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada, and entries will be accepted until September 10th.
Hit the jump to see all the rules and details. Anybody already drumming up their best revenge ideas?

Who doesn’t love free merchandise? And who doesn’t love free merchandise for an awesome game series? With their recent announcement of Nights into Dreams making an HD comeback, Sega has decided to throw a contest. The winners will receive an official Nights pillowcase. All you have to do to enter the contest is tell Sega about your dreams! Pretty easy, right? I know beggars can’t be choosers, but nothing would go better with this pillowcase than some adorable Nights and Reala plushies, right, Sega?
The Sonic Generations soundtrack stands on its own as the 20th anniversary celebration of all the fantastic music found within Sonic games. I myself was highly impressed with the work that had gone into remaking and modernising such classic pieces of gaming music, with the soundtrack being a dream-come-true for myself and other lifetime Sonic fans.
Sega are giving said fans (that’s us) the opportunity to direct questions towards Jun Senoue, Tomoya Ohtani, Kenichi Tokoi and Alex Makhlouf, all of whom worked on the Sonic Generations soundtrack. Questions can be left as comments on the Sega Blog, a selection of which will be presented to, and answered by, the musical Sonic heroes themselves. Thinking of asking a question? Drop us a comment and let us know what you ask!

Most Sonic Generations fans will already be aware of the “secret” statue room accessed through the Collector’s Room by holding down the back/select button for five seconds. Short numerical codes can be entered to add statues of modern and classic Sonic characters and items, but the codes themselves have mysteriously only been released by Sega in trickles, until a recent, official announcement. Hit the jump for more details and the official code list!
With the upcoming release of House of the Dead 3 and 4 on the Playstation Network, Sega has decided to be their usual generous selves with a contest involving one of the games. By simply entering your own haiku poem, you have a chance to win a Playstation Move, Sharpshooter, and a copy of House of the Dead 3 for PSN. So get your creative juices flowing and start thinking of the best words to portray your favorite HOTD creatures, so you don’t “suffer like G did?”

Ken Balough of Sega of America released a poetic hint today on the Sega forums:
And as promised – here is the Hint
If you’re an Episode II fan
I would go back to where the Sonic 4 Campaign first began
In a month filled with presents and Christmas hams
think of the day, the HMS Warrior first swam
Sonic Stadium deduced that the date poetically implied is December 29th. British warship HMS Warrior launched on December 29th in 1860. In regards to “where the Sonic 4 Campaign first began,” I believe that would be referring to the Sega Blogs. In other words, keep your eyes peeled on the Sega Blogs on December 29th, kids!
I for one love how a little tip like this is dropped within a forum board rather than blasting the internet with unnecessary trailers or screenshots telling us virtually nothing. *coughgrandtheftautofivecough* But I jest.
So what do you think, fair readers? Is it too soon to drop Sonic 4 Ep 2 news? Is this tidbit overdue? Should we just play Sonic Generations forever? Let me know in the comments, y’all!
