In Sonic Generations, levels plucked from throughout Sonic's history were updated and strung together in celebration of the hedgehog's longevity. In a similar fashion, Archie Comics has gone through its Sonic the Hedgehog archives and compiled adaptations of Sonic's videogame adventures into a series of digital-exclusive compendiums entitled Sonic: The Games.

Mimicking Generations' three-era structure, the books are split into Classic, Millennium, and Modern. Classic collects story arcs adapted from the Genesis and even Game Gear titles, like Sonic Triple Trouble. In Millennium, the Dreamcast is the focus with adaptations of the two Adventure games as well as Sonic Shuffle. Finally, Modern assembles the more recent fare, such as Rush and Colors.

Sonic: The Games Classic has been available as of July 18; for $3.99, the 120+-page behemoth can be obtained on Archie's Digital Comics page or via the Apple or Android Archie apps. Millennium and Modern will follow on August 8 and 29, respectively. If you have ever been interested in how Archie incorporates actual game events into the comic's narrative, these ought to do the trick.

Dragon Quest II is now available on your phone, (not you, Windows Phone users) something that would have surely been unthinkable when the classic role-playing game first debuted over two decades ago. I'm over here imagining playing it using a rotary dial now. Thanks, Obama. Dragon Quest II [iTunes, Google Play]more

Review: Neverending Nightmares

Mental illness is terrifying. Depression is a soul vampire that will suck the light right out of you. Obsessive compulsive disorder does not make you a supernaturally great detective like it does in the movies. It makes you p...more

Review: Skylanders: Trap Team

Toys For Bob has found some rather interesting ways to evolve the Skylanders franchise. While the conceit the first time around was simply interactive toys, the developer mixed things up with giants on the second go, and...more
