Gotta moonwalk fast.

If you've played Sonic the Hedgehog 3, you've probably noticed that the game's music is awesome.

Sega Wants to Make Sonic Good Again and Win Back Fans, We Cross Everything Available

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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?
