Trends with Benefits: Sonic Speeds

Here’s another round of Trends with Benefits, the weekly brainteaser from your friends at TriplePoint! TWB appears every week in our news round-up, Points of Interest, and offers terrific prizes to readers who can puzzle their way through the challenge du jour. First crack at the prizes go to Points of Interest subscribers when the newsletter goes out on Fridays, but we’ll be sharing each week’s challenge here on our website, as well.

This week’s challenge puts up a free download of Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing on the Xbox 360 for one lucky and crafty entrant. Will it be you? Read on and see what you know about speed!

Sonic Speeds
Who’s the fastest thing alive, really?

This week’s Trends with Benefits prize is an Xbox 360 download of Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing, the fast-paced, explosive racer from TriplePoint client SEGA, which is now available through the Xbox Games on Demand library. We’d love to let you join in the fun, but first we need to check — are you ready? Have you studied up on the competition?

The game features an eclectic roster of racers of many species and backgrounds, each with their own vehicle and racing style. So, if you’re going to race against them, you’ll need to know who you could actually beat in a race!

To submit an entry for this week’s prize, answer the following question. If these characters were to race in the real world, assuming no vehicular assistance and each racer displaying the top speed of his species, who would place where in the race?

  • Sonic
  • AiAi
  • Ryo Hazuki
  • Tails
  • Knuckles
