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.

Windows Phone users who still haven’t gotten your hands on the beautifully ported mobile version of Sonic CD have no good excuse for the next few days.
Normally priced at $4.99, the Windows Phone version of this well-loved Sonic gem is temporary available for a measly $1.99. As part of Microsoft’s “Red Banner Deals” promotion, it will only be this cheap until Wednesday.
While Sonic CD may not be my favorite game in the series, Christian Whitehead’s beautiful adaptation really is the best Sonic mobile port out there. This game is the way to experience a Sonic classic on your phone.

You may remember a great-looking fan project by the name of Sonic After the Sequel. Well, amidst the delay, it will be releasing in April, but the creator, LakeFeperd has already teased us with a new awesome trailer for a game called, Sonic Chrono Adventure.
The game is your basic Sonic platformer, but with a few additions. Time travel will play another role (whether or not it is similar to Sonic CD is to be determined), but what caught my eye was the path-decision in the video. The player is able to travel north, south, east, or west in a level, which is twice as many choices as most 16-bit games used to offer. Along with this, there seem to be some RPG elements, which some are saying will be similar to those found in the Chrono Trigger franchise, hence the title of the game. Along with RPG elements, LakeFeperd has told some sources that there is even a character in the game based on a Chrono Trigger character.
At the end of the trailer, LakeFeperd reassures eager fans of Sonic After the Sequel that the game will release whether or not the soundtrack is done. Either way, both games look great and I can’t wait to see more of them. What do you guys think?

This episode we continue our search for the best first party Sega games and discover that the Sega CD and 32x might not be the best place to look. While there were some great games on the Sega CD they were majorly outnumbered by lackluster ports and FMV games. As for the 32x, well when you have less than 30 games for an entire console/add-on there’s not much there to discuss. There were some decent arcade to console ports for the little mushroom but overall it left a LOT to be desired.
As you may know, I’ve posted about Dooke80′s remixes before. But personally I think this new remix deserves to be heard. As you can tell it’s a revamped version of the Quartz Quadrant zone from Sonic CD.
It’s pretty cool overall. Be sure to check out his other stuff here as I’m sure he’ll be making more awesome remixes, that you’ll probably want to hear.

Have you ever seen a piece of cosmetic DLC that looks so damn cool that you find yourself wanting the game only for that one tiny piece of online sweetness?
…Well now, I really freaking want Spiral Knights.
If you purchase the PC version of Sonic CD before February 1st, you will be treated to the utterly badass Metal Sonic armor you see above, as well as an accessory for Tails’…er…Tails, which you can see after the jump.
Sega’s cross-promotional fervor for both Sonic CD and Sonic 4: Episode 2 is a really masterful thing to watch. No matter what they do to push one game, they are automatically building interest and intrigue for the other. Now, with Spiral Knights in the mix, this veritable stew of self-sustaining marketing begins to swallow us whole. Pretty soon, Sega will be able to conquer the world with a single neato-looking Sonic Avatar hat.
Then we’ll be sorry for mocking that Were-hog.
