In less than 24 hours, the Sonic The Hedgehog franchise will turn 25. The Blue Blur has made a huge impact in its debut game on Sega Genesis, which lead to the 90s Console War with Mario and the Super Nintendo. The early games did extremely well in 2D, but when Sonic evolved into 3D the series turned into a roller coaster for both critics and fans. From the fan favorite Adventure games, to the god awful Sonic 06’, to the nostalgia and return the series’ roots, Sonic Generations, and… Sonic Boom. To be fair, the Sonic Boom cartoon is pretty funny.
With no announcements of a new Sonic console game yet, and the 25th Anniversary fan event being held next month in San Diego, what better way to celebrate than Humble Bundle letting you pay great deals on Sonic games across “generations”? *wink wink*
The first batch for $1 or more gets you the first Sonic game, Sonic Adventure DX, Sonic 3D Blast, and Sonic CD. Not bad for games under $10 and a great start for newcomers to the franchise. Then if you pay on the average of $9.57, you get Sonic 4: Episode 1, Sonic 2 (best game of all time), Sonic & Sega All Stars Racing, Sonic Adventure 2 with Battle DLC, and more games TBA. Pay $10 or more will unlock Sonic Lost World, Sonic Generations with Casino Night DLC, Sonic 4: Episode 2, and Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed with Metal Sonic & Outrun and Ryo Hazuki DLC. But wait, there’s more! There is an nice exclusive Sonic 25th Unisex T-Shirt made by Fangamer if drop more than $35 into Humble Bundle pack.
Honestly, this is a great bargain that I would definitely not miss. Most of my favorite Sonic titles in the series are in this pack and I will buy it without second guessing. Adding the DLCs is also a win in my books, and with the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive Classic hub on Steam, you can create and play mods of the older Sonic games.
