From the depths of SHQ's archives

SHQ has received a lot of various "rumors" over the years. Mostly in the past. Considering it's now been over 10 years since these "reports" were submitted, I figured to shed some light on a few. I won't be showing the names. Just the title and content. These were all submitted to SHQ's older news feed.

Sonic Runners

Sonic Runners is coming to a close pretty soon. On July 27 at 9AM UTC. (5AM EDT, 2AM PDT) the servers for the game will be shut down and you will no longer be able to play the game. At All! The app requires a constant connection so even when July 27 comes and goes, while the app will still remain on your device, it will likely throw an error.

Enter our initiative to get you the most out of the app before it's done. We've created this Facebook community. Head over and we'll see what we can do for you!

Sonic's 25th Anniversary!

avatar Lighthead @

It's interesting isn't it?

It's a testament to the oldness feeling and it's very real.

It feels like just yesterday it was Sonic's 10th Anniversary, celebrating with Sonic Adventure 2. I remember getting that along with the collector's edition which had that nifty coin. (Unfortunately now I can't find it). 

We then celebrated Sonic's 15th anniversary with Sonic 06. AHEM, moving on...

For the 20th anniversary we got a treat with Sonic Generations.

Now here we are with today being Sonic's 25th anniversary. We don't have a game announcement yet but that's expected to be next month. I think everyone is in agreement that Sega should in no way rush the development of this game. You may be asking however, did Sega drop us anything? There is this nifty retrospective they posted on their youtube found below.
