Sonic the Hedgehog

  1. Some Of These Pop-Culture Characters Are Out Of Character (And That’s OK)

    eye candy

    Others are perfectly in character. And that's ok too. Louis Roskosch seems to have a lot of fun illustrating our favorite characters from video games, comics, and more. Check out his work and you may even find yourself a new t-shirt (or 10).

  2. Today In Hollywood Remakes, Reboots, and Spinoffs: The Lion King, The Magic School Bus, and Sonic the Hedgehog

    Things to Do With Your Kids

    It's taken a few years longer than I expected for Hollywood to realize "Hey, we haven't done a live action/CG hybrid Sonic the Hedgehog movie yet!" But it happened. I wonder what the furries, who infamously comprise a significant percentage of the Sonic fandom, have to say about this?

  3. I’m Sorry For What These Gloomy Video Game Characters Are About To Do To Your Feelings

    I'm In A Glass Case of Emotion

    Toad, Toad, come here. You're my go-to guy in Mario Kart. You're Princess Peach's right-hand shroom. We've all had days like that, buddy. It's going to be okay. Artist Christopher Hemsworth is the fiendish mind behind these. Click through for more 16-bit angst. Prints are available at Society6. (via Geeks Are Sexy)

  4. Find Out What It’s Like To Speed Around From Sonic’s POV With The Oculus Rift

    Spoiler alert: it's pukey.

    So we've established that you're probably going to suck at virtual reality gaming for a while - you need to stop getting motion sick long enough to, you know, actually play. Here's a game for the Oculus that will definitely not help with that - it's Sonic the Hedgehog. In first-person.

  5. The New Sonic Game Looks Goofy as Sh**… and Then the Dubstep Happens

    Someone tell Knuckles to put down the `roids.

    Let the trailer for the new Sonic the Hedgehog reboot, Sonic Boom, leave you feeling like a confused old person. The new character designs are really weird looking in 3D, and Knuckles looks like some kind of `roided out fan art. Then the dubstep kicks in. You can almost hear Sega begging the younger generation to get on board.

  6. Things We Saw Today: Dragon Skeleton Dress

    Things We Saw Today

    The above fashion triumph was worn by Taiwanese singer Mei, about whom I know nothing other than she went to a performance of the New Japan Philharmonic once and she has excellent taste in dresses. (Fashionably Geek)

  7. Sonic Lost World’s Dialogue is Pretty Dark, Apparently

    Still doing what Nintendon't all these years later.

    Ever since Sonic Colors ended the so-called Dark Age of Sonic, the series has returned to a decidedly cartoonish, light-hearted tone. Sonic Lost World, the upcoming Wii U game, looked to continue that trend, but due to certain bits of dialogue it's been given an E10+ rating by the ESRB as opposed to the usual E. I suspect it was written by Shadow the Hedgehog now that he's out of the spotlight.

  8. Try Not to Get Nauseous Watching First Person Sonic The Hedgehog [Video]

    So would Tails' POV be kinda like Google Earth in comparison?

    It seems like all the biggest games that come out right now are all designed to be in the first person. Wouldn't it be nice to go back to the time of side-scrollers? Or, you know, take those side-scrollers we all loved as kids and update them in the most dizzy-inducing way possible? Because that's what Filipe Costa did. It's like virtual those roller coaster videos, but better!

    Almost Totally Excellent

  10. Sonic Lost World Trailer’s Basically Super Mario Galaxy, But Sonic [Video]

    A Sonic game in 3D that... actually looks pretty good? Huh. How about that.

    The Internet may have collectively chuckled a bit when Nintendo said they were going to bring a new Sonic the Hedgehog game to market, but it turns out Nintendo may have been on to something. The trailer for Sonic Lost World has dropped, and it frankly looks better than any of the franchise's recent installments. That's saying a lot considering it's in 3D.
