Today has been a pretty good news day for the dusty old codgers here at Joystiq; not only will the original Sonic the Hedgehog
in Sonic Generations
as an unlockable, but Steam has gone and sweetened the nostalgia pot by giving away Sonic 3D Blast
and Sonic 3 and Knuckles
with every Generations pre-order
hits Steam November 4, but the pre-order bonuses become instantly available at check-out. And look at it this way, even if Generations
ends up being a flop, you can tell yourself you spent 30 dollars on two Genesis ports, which is a much more palatable sense of disappointment.
