Just a warning, but the console releases of All Star Racing Transformed has proven some...interesting spoilers. You have to go out of your way to find them, but if you are interested in not finding them out, just avoid any Sonic/Sega orientated places. I have had a look and for the most part, they're thoroughly excellent. PC version looks like it may have the best secret characters through sheer audacity alone. Character spoilers: Team Fortress 2 vehicle and...Shogun: Total War?! Super Secret character spoiler for final unlock (?) that you may want to completely blank out on: SEGA! Play as the Daytona car on road, Afterburner Jet in the air and A BLOODY DREAMCAST CONTROLLER IN THE WATER!It's beautiful. To top it off, transformations are occasionally accompanied with the classic "Seeeee-gaaaaa" or the Saturn's "SEGA!" shout. Music that I've heard from the clips as well seems to be nothing short of fantastic. It looks and looks-like-it-plays like a properly fun arcade game.
In actually getting it, that remains up in the air. Still no PC release date, but I checked Amazon and Play and both have it down for £21 too (this is £4 cheaper than the console releases too, apart from the WiiU due to New Console Tax). No idea if this will be retail or digital or both.
All in all, it's looking like a very fun game, probably worth the initial asking price too.
I also found this. It's a bit different, but still enjoyable. I hope you like Sonic 2 music. (And if you don't, you're wrong!)

ABOUT MOTHERF'ING DAMN TIME!! Source?
Edit: ok, found the source, SEGA's Twitter account:
"Sonic Adventure 2 & Battle Mode DLC is coming to PC Digital Download on Monday, November 19th in HD widescreen & with all-new bonus content!"
All-new bonus content?! As in, different from the console versions? The hell?

So excited though. Might not get it straight away - only just got Darksiders 2 and I want to focus on that for now - but got to play the console re-release at a friend's place a week ago and it turned me into a giddy mush. Definitely in my shopping bag after I've finished Death's Adventures in Unclear Exposition Land.

I recommend skipping the Battle DLC, unless you really want more forgettable multiplayer stuff (although Chao Karate is more fun than Chao Races, admittedly). It's not even a fraction as good as the DX update for the first Adventure.
Bought it anyway already, even though I've no plans to start playing it immediately. I just wanted to own it... !

Bought it, started it, making my way through the Dark side story. ALL EMBLEMS SHALL BE MINE!!

The HD re-release of Sonic the Fighters is heading to the Western console world this year already, in a week in US and in early December in Europe (alongside Virtua Fighter 2 and Fighting Vipers). I'd guess this will also make an appearance on the PC eventually, seeing as that's how Sega rolls these days.

The PC Unleashed mod continues its journey, Skyscraper Scamper/Empire City completed.

It's interesting charting Sonic Generations in the Steam sale. Since it was a daily, it slowly worked its way up into the top 20. I'm glad, in a weird way, that Sega use digital distribution as much as they do, as they must surely see the PC as a perfectly viable platform to release Sonic games on. Obviously we've got the last bunch, but it's a good sign for the future. Considering active modding communities too, Sega probably have a good idea of the raw numbers of people who will definitely buy on the PC, assuming a 1:1 uptake with those in those communities.
Anyhow, I'm still not sure if I like the music for Empire City, but wow, that level looks crazy fun.

Now for a bit more soundtrack coverage:
Bonus silliness. The reference to Gamegrumps is that they are Let's Play!ers. I've watched a fair amount of their Sonic 06 stuff and it's hilarious; in the last episode (20) one of the two was broken by the game. I recommend you giving it a watch. Episodes are moderately short (10 mins a pop) and are a good fit if you happen to be eating at your screen.
Actually, come to think of it, those headphones used in the banner image for that vid are pretty cool.

No idea, but Amazon has it for 50$ (wat) which I hope is just their assumption and not the final price; I'm expecting a lower price point because, you know, 3 months of extra wait.
