Let’s Go to the “Sonic Generation” Art Show in Philadelphia!

When Gagaman of SEGA Memories wrote about the “Sonic Generation” fan art show in Philadelphia, PA, I knew I had to make the long trek to check it out. Grabbing my old near-broken digital camera (my new one is being repaired), I headed out into the tepid weather and braved the 9 minute subway ride to the Brave New Worlds comic book shop. The show, which is actually rather small despite the spiffy website, features various renditions of Sonic, Tails and Eggman from a variety of artists. Located in the outer lobby of Brave New Worlds, the gallery takes up what usually would have been a blank wall.

Smithsonian’s The Art of Video Games exhibit to feature original SEGA art!

Via a recent email update, it has been revealed that the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s exhibit The Art of Video Games will include original concept art from the games featured. While the email doesn’t reveal much, it DOES feature a piece of original Sonic concept art showing off the interior of a blimp which I assume to be Flying Battery Zone. If that’s what they’re teasing, who knows what other pieces of SEGA art will appear! Shenmue, Panzer Dragoon and Phantasy Star are just some of the other SEGA franchises in the exhibition. Fingers crossed for some more original SEGA art! The exhibit opens in Washington, D.C. on March 16, 2012. I’m planning on going, who else is?

Shining Hearts revealed

Yep, Shining Hearts.
Yet another Shining game that nobody really wanted.

So far we know the game is for the PSP, the art is by ‘Tony’ apparently I should just know who ‘Tony’ is with out needing a second name. I already know a Tony; he’s always at my local pub propping up the bar and smells a bit like wee…  I hope it isn’t him doing the art. Finally from the screenshots (below) it seems to be a traditional JRPG… So another pass then.

Screens and more after the jump,

New Sonic Colors artwork & screens

A new batch of Sonic Colors screens and some artwork have made it to the net, here they are in all their colorful glory. Look at the above scree, it even says enjoy, so don’t whine. Just sit back and enjoy.

I have to admit, the more I see of this game, the more excited I get. I bet there is a million ways this game can fall flat, but so far so good. Hit the jump for more screens.
