The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Microsoft Slashes Sonic Games on XBLA

Posted on Thursday, December 30 @ 13:49:09 PST by
One time, when I was about 10 years old, I was being babysat by some friends of my parents. I was pretty psyched that they had a Sega Genesis.

They even had a copy of Sonic 2, so I didn't mind whittling the hours away playing the game over and over until I had made it through several worlds. Each time I got a Game Over and had to restart, I remembered where I would find extra lives, I remembered tricky parts of each level, and I remembered where power ups were. I got better and better and got closer and closer to the end.

Metropolis Zone. My God. I didn't know it at the time but I was just a few acts from the end, from Eggman. I was going to finish it once and for all. I'd struggled, there was no save system, the early levels were becoming cake-walks, but I persevered because I wanted to accomplish something.

A toddler appears, this fucking three year old brat wrests the cartridge out of the Genesis and the game freezes, completely destroying what was, up to that point, a perfect game. I had more than enough lives to get me through to the end, I could have beaten it right then and there.

I've never played a Sonic game since then.



If you want to ring (get it? He collects rings!) in the new year with some classic Sonic gaming, Microsoft has you covered, discounting prices on a ton of Sonic games today only.

Sonic the Hedgehog 1, 2, and 3 are 200 Microsoft Points each. Sonic and Knuckles is running 120. Dreamcast classic, Sonic Adventure is 400 points and Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode 1 is 800 points (from 1200). Of course, if you simply want to be a poser and show everyone your love for Sonic without actually subjecting yourself to any gameplay, you can buy the Sonic car avatar prop for 120.

If you do want to play Sonic until midnight tomorrow night, please make sure no one is going to trip over the cord or something like that.
