Does Sega’s new 2D Sonic the Hedgehog game built from the ground up mean it’s not going to be the 20th port of the games from the Genesis glory days?
• Sega is teasing a new 2D Sonic game to come out in 2010. If it’s not Sonic, they’ve already done evil Sonic, so perhaps female or baby Sonic this time around? You read it here first. [GameVideos]
Continue after the break for Left 4 Dead 2 at the carnival, side-scrolling awesomeness in Emberwind, and an embarassingly un-hip Beaterator promo.
• Left 4 Dead 2 has a level that takes place in the carnival, complete with jockey zombies jumping on your head. We’re going to assume that eating the fried Twinkies is still a bad idea. [GameTrailers]
• Emberwind’s intro screen looks less than stellar but the gameplay looks pretty on point. We think more games should have pot-bellied dwarfs as the main protagonist. [GameTrailers]
• Beaterator looks perfect for your lame friends who aren’t good at making beats. Seriously, getting dorky kids to act like they’re cool is not going to make your game look cool in comparisson. [Joystiq]
