First-person Sonic with the Oculus Rift looks pretty fun

Disorienting, but fun. I wonder how long before you vomit. I knew someone who played Team Fortress 2 with the Rift for 30 minutes and had to lay down for an hour to stop being woozy. I still really want to play Mirror's Edge with it.

PSA: Sonic CD is free for Android for 7 more hours
by Steven Hansen

Apparently-controller-compatible Sonic CD is Amazon's free Android app of the day for about seven more hours. This staggering deal will literally save you dollars compared to the usual $3 price tag.

Use them well. I'm going to buy a lottery ticket and burn the other two as sacrifice. For luck.

Impressions: Sonic Lost World The Legend of Zelda Zone
by Chris Carter

Sonic Lost World may not have met everyone's expectations, but two free pieces of Nintendo-themed DLC sits right with me. We already got a chance to play the 2D Yoshi's Island-themed add-on back in December, but now Link has teamed up with Sonic for a grand 3D adventure.

Just like its predecessor, the "Legend of Zelda Zone" is very brief, but it's a wonderful glimpse into what Sega and Nintendo can accomplish together.
