Life is full of mysteries. One of those mysteries is why Tim Miller would choose to depart Deadpool 2 over "creative differences" and then, within days of that decision, hop on board the creative team for Sony's Sonic the Hedgehog movie.Read More
Enjoy your future. It's gonna be great.
Sonic the Hedgehog is 25 years old this year, and the blue bur is getting two new games to celebrate—even though they won't see release until 2017. In a fitting tribute to a character who's found limited success in modern times, Sonic Mania will take the series back to its roots and give the fans the 2D, sidescrolling Sonic sequel they've been waiting for.Read More
The prices are ... a little bit lower now.
Sonic the Hedgehog was released 25 years ago tomorrow (June 23), and to celebrate, SEGA's got a huge package of Sonic games on Humble Bundle including old classics and newer titles. The deal only launched recently, so the price to get the most games for your buck is still pretty low, and you get to give to charity! Go fast!Read More
This video's everything you'd expected it'd be: a big mama tiger being a mama tiger to some lil tiger cubs.Read More
Ours is not to wonder why. Ours is just to watch the live-action Sonic movie that Sega has announced.Read More
Gotta moonwalk fast.
If you've played Sonic the Hedgehog 3, you've probably noticed that the game's music is awesome. What you may not have noticed is that it's not just better than, but noticeably different from the music in other Sonic games on Sega Genesis. As it turns out, that's probably because it was the only one composed by Michael Jackson.Read More
Gotta go fast ... enough to turn back time.
With Sega's attempt at revamping Sonic the Hedgehog with "Sonic Boom" games and TV shows not going so well, it's refreshing to see the gaming company bring the character back to his retro roots with his 25th anniversary logo. Yes, Sonic is 25 in 2016, and it seems there may be a previously unknown Sonic game on the way.Read More
Yes, young gamers, gather 'round and hear the story of how once, Mario and Sonic were direct, formidable competitors for the king of video games. However, when Mario made the (triple) jump to 3D, his gameplay evolved and set a new standard, whereas Sonic struggled to find a successful formula that fit that extra dimension. Now, after a string of lackluster releases and a fall from grace, Sega wants to make Sonic games good again and win back lost fans.Read More

NASA's developed a brand new type of bot that they want to use to explore comets. Called Hedgehog, it consists of a cube body which contains all the instruments any science bot would need on-the-go. But most intriguing is how it moves around.Read More
Talk about a Sonic jam.
YouTuber Rush Coil recently posted a video of him recreating the theme from the first stage of Sonic the Hedgehog.Read More
Benedict. Cumberbatch. Is. Everywhere. Sherlock. Star Trek. The Hobbit. That Oscarbait biopic that's going to make you cry. And if he's not there, he at one point was rumored to be there, as in the cases of Star Wars, Doctor Strange, and Batman v Superman. But there are still some movies that he hasn't been linked to, because even Mr. Working-On-10-Different-Projects-At-a-Time can't do everything. Here are ten of them.Read More
Quick! More fuel for the reboot machine!
Sega released another trailer for the Sonic the Hedgehog reboot Sonic Boom at Gamescom, and it looks pretty much like you'd have expected. Unless you were expecting it to look good, in which case you've likely got much larger problems than being wrong about this trailer.Read More

I'm In A Glass Case of Emotion
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.Read More
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.Read More

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.Read More
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!Read More
