If you are a fan of Sonic’s Archie comic book series run, you will want to attend two panels they are having later this week at the New York Comic Con. The first panel is on Friday and the second one will be on Saturday. There is limited seating, so make sure you show up early if you want one of the cool gift bags.
How limited? Friday’s panel will seat 200 people and Saturday will seat only 100. Check out the source link for more information.
Sony’s Playstation Plus service barely turned a year old last month and the selection of free games have just gotten better. Like check this out, this week you can download Renegade Ops, Gotham City Impostors and Pacman DX for free. The important game here is Renegade Ops. Enjoy the game, we did.
Sonic the Hedgehog will be turning 21 years old in a few days, what best way to celebrate his birthday in Japan than giving users a free Sonic DLC pack? The DLC pack is for Super Monkey Ball: Banana Splitz on the Playstation Vita, so far this DLC has only been announced for Japan since the game isn’t really out in the west yet.
The only thing this free piece of downloadable content really gives you is a model of Sonic, as an object that you can use to in stage creation mode. That means that when you share your banana-fied courses of mass destruction, you can now put a happy looking Sonic giving the player a wag of his finger. No, not that finger, keep it PG.
So Apple is launching the new iPad 3 today and SEGA is celebrating by giving away a free copy of ChuChu Rocket HD and Brick People to iPad users. This is according to SEGA, I don’t know if you can snatch them up on iPhone, iPod Touch or even on an older model iPad.
If you guys own an older apple device with access to the iOS store, get on and see if you guys can get it for free and let us know in the comments. Happy gaming!
So if you didn’t know, Japanese consumers have been treated to free DLC for Binary Domain. We English speakers haven’t received such luxury. But you know what? I really want this DLC, since it lets you play as Yakuza characters in mulitplayer. Sadly, I own the Playstation 3 version and I tried downloading the DLC from the Japanese PSN store. Guess what? Nothing.
Though the Xbox 360 version will work with the Japanese DLC. Isn’t it ironic that it doesn’t work on the Playstation 3 after they boasted so much about it being region free? Thanks to Sanus, who wrote about the Xbox 360 DLC being region free. The DLC adds Goro Majima as the ‘Crusher’ class with a shotgun, Shun Akiyama as the ‘Gunner’ with a submachine gun, and Ryuji Goda is the ‘Defender’ with a heavy machinegun. Kazuma Kiryu sadly isn’t free DLC, it was a pre-order bonus in Japan. More screenshots of the DLC can be found here.
That is right, the downloadable version of Sonic Generations has hit the European PSN. For those Sonic games that refuse to go into a store and purchase the game, you will be able to pick it up now for £31.99/€39.99. The game is pretty big, weighing in at 8704MB.
But if you don’t have money, don’t get sad. SEGA has released a free Sonic CD XMB theme. The theme is basically Metal Sonic and Sonic racing through Stardust Speedway. The theme will change from good to bad versions. Pretty neat.
We talked here about the Sonic 20th Anniversary app that was released in Japan awhile back, well now you can get the English version on the Apple Appstore. Yes, they even left in Sketchhog. Yes, the app is free!
For full details on the app, hit the jump.
Sony just announced a new ‘annual’ program they will be launching called “PSN Play”. Basically if you pre-order a ‘PSN Play’ title, you will receive a free PSN theme. If you purchase the title before a date (this time around it’s September 19th) you will get a free piece of DLC for that game.
But, if you get all of the ‘PSN Play’ titles, you will get a free unreleased game. This time around if you buy all four titles above by September 19th, you will get Payday: The Heist for free. If you have Playstation Plus, you get 20% off on top of that. Do want. Renegade Ops is out September 13th on PSN.
Yakuza of the end is getting Patriotic DLC. Look at Kazuma Kiryu sport that sexy American flag as a shirt. America, fuck yeah. That is not all though, this fourth free pack will also feature a pirate themed Majima and even a Rambo Ryuji Goda.
Check out the pictures below. Come on SEGA America, how can you not port this game over now?
[American Theme/European Theme]
If you didn’t know, SEGA is selling tons of rare swag on ebay. Nice right? To help promote this, they are giving a free PSN theme away. The theme comes in two flavors, European and American.
What is the difference? The European Dreamcast had a blue swirl, thus the theme is more blue and the American had an orange swirl, making the theme more orange.
Since PSN is down, download below:
