Sonic The Hedgehog's Humble Birthday Blowout Bundle

Going (hedge)hog-wild!

Sonic the Hedgehog turns 25 on Thursday, which is a good cause to pull out the interactive photo book and look at how we once were. "Coo, remember when we hadta to fast?" you ask, jabbing at his cute pink belly in the picture. He frowns and tugs unconsciously at his neckerchief - give him a few years. "Ahh and remember when we wantedta go fast?" you ask, leafing through more pages. "Then... then we shouldnta gone fast. I'm sorry, I..." You take his gloved hand. "How are you really doing?"

All of which can only mean that Humble Bundle have a load of Sonic games in their latest pay what-you-want dealio. Some of them are quite good!

It's the usual tiered arrangement: the more you pay, the more you get. All come as Steam keys.

Paying at least $1( £70p) would get you ye olde Sonic the Hedgehog from the Mega Drive (now with Sega's weird virtual room), Sonic Adventure DX from the Dreamcast, the not-great Sonic 3D Blast (oh, the early days of 3D platformers!), and Sonic CD.

Paying more than the current average ($8.99/£6.27 as I write this) would also get you kart racer Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (the best Sonic?), Sonic Adventure 2, and the modern-ish Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1.

Extra games will be added to that tier later. Presumably one is Sonic 3, unless Sonic is snubbing Knuckles. Birthday drama!

Then $10 (£7.05) or more would get you all those plus pretty-great-or-so-I-hear-anyway karting sequel Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, Sonic Generations, Sonic 4: Episode 2, and Sonic Lost World.

That is a great many Sonics.
