Happy birthday Sonic, you’re finally legal

I know most of you sick bastards have been waiting for Miley Cyrus, but someone more important has just turned eighteen today, and he’s everybody’s favorite blue hedgehog. Sega’s long-suffering mascot has become legal, and if you thought the furry slash fanfiction was bad before, you just wait to see how horrible it gets today.

To celebrate Sonic’s birthday, Sega is giving away loads of stuff in Twitter via its Sonic Games account. If you want free stuff, follow them and jump through a series of hoops in order to win things like download codes for XBLA games, and a load merchandise with Sonic’s battered face on it. 

Happy birthday, Sonic. Here’s to you, and we hope that Sega puts you in a good game as a nice little treat on your special day.
