Introduction: Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) left a huge scar in the blue blur’s reputation. In order to get the franchise back on track, they decided to make a third installment to the beloved Sonic Adventure games. As they came up with more ideas for the game, however, they decided to separate it from the Adventure […]
Who doesn’t love a good joke? I sure do and that’s exactly why I stay away from Smash Bros. leaks which are usually made up of text in 4chan. But some of the more fun leaks or hoaxes are the ones where people actually put effort into them to make them seem real like the […]
As the leader of the Freedom Fighters, Sally Acorn is one of the core members of the organization. But what would happen if she was replaced by a robot? This idea has been explored in episode three of SatAM, “Sonic and Sally.” The episode aired on Sept. 25, 1993, and was written by Pat Allee and Ben Hurst.
“Sonic the Hedgehog” is a huge franchise appearing in comics, shows, movies, and, of course, games and has inspired the lives of many gamers. After the completion of “Sonic Unleashed,” Sonic Team discussed ways to celebrate the blue blur’s 20th anniversary. The team decided to split the gameplay between Classic and Modern. Dimps helped develop the 3DS version of the game which the team decided to start from scratch and make the game a celebration of Sonic’s portable history. Ports for the Wii, DS, and Playstation Portable (PSP) were scrapped, however. On Nov. 1, 2011, “Sonic Generations” was released for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. The Windows version was released two days later and the 3DS game came out on the 22nd. So, is this game a timeless Classic? Or a Modern flop?
Note: I will be reviewing the PC version for this review.
After discussing the pilot episode for the SatAM series, it’s time we look at the first episode that aired for the series: “Sonic Boom” written by Len Janson which first aired on Sept. 18, 1993.
It was meant to be a celebration of the 15th anniversary of the “Sonic the Hedgehog” franchise. It was meant to be an outstanding return to Sonic’s 3D gameplay like the well-received Adventure games. And yet….the game was poorly received. The game was declared the worst Sonic game of all time and, to others, one of the worst games of all time. “Sonic the Hedgehog” (2006) became the reason why everyone treated the franchise like a joke. Despite it being over a decade since it’s release, people still point to this game as the reason why Sonic is so bad and how the franchise has become a laughing stock.
War….War never changes. This was the tone Sonic Forces was going for with its attempt to have a darker tone with Sonic and company fighting against Dr. Eggman. But Forces wasn’t the only Sonic related story to have a darker theme with Dr. Eggman already conquering the world. We must go back to 1993 where DIC Entertainment, a film and tv show company, started airing two Sonic shows around the same month.
