Ever since SEGA announced the Sonic CD re-release running on the Retro Engine, I had a long list of retro titles that I wanted to see use the engine. Then after awhile SEGA stopped announcing titles for it, then out of the blue they announce Sonic 1 & 2 re-releases using the engine. As much as I love Sonic, there are plenty of SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive games that I would love to see running on the Retro Engine. Check out the five games I would want to get the Retro Engine treatment and what type of extras I would love to see for them.

I love Crush 40, but no one can stop the Sonic tunes of the mid-90s. Toot Toot Sonic Warrior has become a legendary song within the fandom. The song is incredibly energetic and upbeat, like a Sonic song should, and while the lyrics make no sense, the song still has a clearer meaning and relevance to Sonic as a character than anything done by Crash 40.
Not much more for me to say about this one, so just sit back and listen!
Even though a 21st anniversary isn’t as big in video games as it is in real life, SEGA is still having a sale. So its good to know that Sonic can finally get wasted, thanks SEGA. Whats on sale?
Anything you guys are looking forward to getting? That Sonic CD price is pretty damn good!

Sonic CD is a smash hit on PSN! It has topped the charts and has beaten some of the bigger PSN titles such as Infamous2: Festival of Blood, and Castle Crashers. At the $5 price point, it’s not hard to see why. Still it’s great to see a Sonic game #1 in sales again. Full top ten list of PSN titles at the link.
What a huge morning for Sonic fans! Sega has just announced a bucketload of PC Sonic digital content available now. Sonic CD is now on steam! For a limited time, purchase Sonic CD and you get DLC for Spiral Knights that lets you dress your knight as Metal Sonic. Want more Sonic in your spiral Knights game? You can also purchase a Tails Knight! Also, Sonic 4: Episode 1 finally arrives on your PC as well as the DLC content for Sonic Generations. Talking about my Generations, there’s a demo available for that as well. Happy Sonic PC DLC day!
Back in my original review of Sonic CD, I said that I would return to this game to review it again and see if it warranted a higher grade. While the game does have some great and wonderful improvements, there are still some slightly nagging issues that just cannot be undone. Full follow-up review inside along with a bonus!
