Mad Catz bringing Sonic-themed DS travel cases

Sonic has been getting around lately. We've got Sonic 4 arriving on multiple platforms, Sonic Colors for the Wii and DS, and now the Kinect-enabled Sonic Free Riders for the 360. With all this Sonic love in the air, Mad Catz has decided to release a variety of Sonic-themed travel cases for the DS Lite and DSi handhelds.

Making its way into stores right now is a wallet for storing loose games and styli in addition to your DS. Coming out in July are a protective sock sleeve and a durable ArmorCase made from what I assume to be space-age polymers. All feature Sonic's smug mug and should offer your DS protection from scratches and fat, balding supervillains.

New Range Speeds onto Nintendo DSi™ and DS™ Lite Beginning June 2010

San Diego, June 14. 2010

Oh neat, Hollow Knight got through the Colosseum of Fools stretch goal while no one was looking. Shame they couldn't get to three characters but the game still looks awesome.

My MGSV: The Phantom Pain playthrough has quickly devolved into a journey to fill out Big Boss' 80's synth pop collection. And I couldn't be happier.

You know what I love? Game tgat force you to connect to their servers even though you only want to play single player. Then the servers are down an the game tries for like 5 minutes, not even giving you a way to cancel the process, you just have to wait

In today's Spelunky daily challenge, I was nibbled by a bat that pushed me into a Tiki trap that landed me dead on Kali's alter. Kali was pleased with the bat's sacrifice.

I'm sitting here play Metal Gear V, absolutely loving it. But in the back of my mind ... all I can think about is Mario Maker. I'm really excited for that game!

Sold a digital item on Steam, that came with a physical item, for more than the cost of the physical item. This is the second time I've done this. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
