Retro Giveaway: Sonic Franchise Bundle on Steam

Seasons greetings, dear Retro readers! Last night, jolly old Santa Claus visited the Retro HQ, ate all our cookies and milk, and didn’t leave us a damn thing. Fortunately, we managed to pull his bag off his sleigh as he tried to escape from our armed pursuit, and in his wonderful bag of gifts, we found a hundred pounds of solid gold ingots. We promptly sold all the gold, and I’m happy to report that all of the Retro staff slept on mattresses made entirely out of cash last night. In the spirit of the Christmas season, we thought we’d pass our frankly tremendous fortunes on to you, so today we’re holding a giveaway for a Sonic Franchise Steam Bundle. This bundle includes every single Sonic game available on Steam (see complete list below), and only one lucky reader is going to walk away with the whole thing. To enter, simply leave a comment on this post before 11:59 PM Eastern Standard Time on December 31st, 2012, and include an email address we can contact you at in case you win. Make sure to read the rules below as well. Good luck, and may you enjoy these games as much as we are enjoying our endless pits of money.

Complete List of Games Included:

  • Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine
  • Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing
  • Sonic 3D Blast
  • Sonic Adventure DX
  • Sonic Adventure 2 (with Battle DLC)
  • Sonic CD
  • Sonic Generations (with Casino Night DLC)
  • Sonic Spinball
  • Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Sonic the Hedgehog 2
  • Sonic 3 & Knuckles
  • Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode I
  • Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode II

Contest Rules

  1. Sonic Retro staff are barred from entering. Yes, me, that means you.
  2. You must not already own more than three of the games on Steam. We will need permission to view your Steam profile to verify that you meet this requirement. This is so that people who don’t already own these titles have a chance to get them.
  3. Entries must be submitted by 11:59 PM EST on December 31, 2012, and must have supplied a valid email address.
  4. Only one entry per person. Trying to skirt this rule may result in all of your entries being disqualified, not just the additional entries.
  5. The winner will be chosen whenever we feel like it between January 1st and January 7th, 2013.

Clarifications:

  1. You do NOT need to put your email address in the text of the comment, just use the email field provided for you.
  2. You do not need to put your Steam profile in your comment. We will email you and request that information when and if you are picked as the winner.
  3. DLC, such as the Adventure 2 Battle DLC or Generations Casino Night, does not count against the three game limit from rule two. Games will be considered as listed above.

    I only own Sonic CD on steam (and everything else it was ported too xD) plus lots of Sega stuff over the years for everything else. (Kinda wish Sonic R had a steam version too) Just to be honest. I would love to get em all on steam anyway though.

  • Reply

    Not having a credit card makes it quite a rarity for me to obtain anything on Steam (I mostly go for Humble Bundles when I have a chance), so I really wouldn’t mind (eg. I friggin’ want them) having this “little” pack.

    I left my email in the email field left to my post, hope that works.

  • Reply

    Well, this is certainly a good time to register, isn’t it?

    I’ve actually been using this site for a few years now. At first, it was just so I could look through the wiki while enjoying the music; sorry you guys can’t get some of the tunes back up. 🙁 Nowadays, I come back mainly for news and updates.

    Also, thanks for providing the download for Sonic Before the Sequel. It really cheered me up after playing Sonic 4: Episode 1 (the only Sonic game I currently own on Steam).

    BTW: You can still look up virtually every Sonic tune up to 2009 on SonicStyle.org (they haven’t updated since then, unfortunately), which I find way more convenient than going through several Youtube videos.

  • Reply

    Well, I don’t know if Sonic Generations will run well in my PC but heck I want Sonic CD and Sonic Adventure 2 sooo bad.

    Also, I had the original DVD-ROM of SADX a long time ago, and my younger brother absolutely loves it, and I have some great nostalgia for the game. So yeah, it’s a win-win situation.

    I don’t have any Sonic games on Steam, so this would be nice.

  • Reply

    So, wait, is this for the BEST comment, or is it just a sweepstakes?
    Either way, I have a story for you guys.
    A few days back on Christmas eve, I noticed all these went on sale for about 30$. I would already have them now, except for the fact that I had spent my only 40$ (Which interestingly enough, was birthday money from a friend) Buying present. I don’t have a job, so that’s why I only had the 40. Well, obviously, I didn’t manage to get it. And now, we just had Christmas with my grandparent. they are very generous, and now I have money again. unfortunately, the sale is over, and I do not want to spend 100+ dollars on this, despite my love of these games. To be honest, I’ve played all of them, except 4 and generations. But it would be amazing to have them all on steam. Well, That was a long story, and I hope it wasn’t TL;DR. Please consider me when choosing the victor. I hope if I don’t win they go to the most deserving person.

  • Reply

    I own Sonic Generations, Sonic CD, and Sonic 4 Episode-2. I got Generations on sale for ~$20, and it was the best $20 I’ve spent on a game.
    I hope I win!
