Do you know what I don’t like about retro games during the NES era? You would have to start ALL OVER once you get a game over. To go through the same slow levels over and over again feels just dull and repetitive sometimes. This is how Yuji Naka felt when playing Super Mario Bros. […]
The franchise of Sonic is home to many characters. In fact, the characters are what this franchise is best known for with characters like Shadow, Blaze, the Chaotix, Knuckles, Tails, and, of course, Sonic the Hedgehog. While these characters share at least SOME of the spotlight, there are a few that have been forgotten by […]
Sega’s 60th anniversary is on, and they got goodies.
Introduction: When you hear “Sonic Fighting Game,” what first comes to your mind? Do you think Sonic the Fighters? Maybe Sonic Smackdown? Or perhaps Sonic Forces: Speed Battle? When I hear it, I think of Sonic Battle for the Gameboy Advance (GBA). The game was released on Jan. 5, 2004, and received mixed reviews thanks […]
Introduction: Boring. If there is one word I had to describe Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric, it would be “boring.” How did this game become so dull despite the announcement trailer looking so cool? Well, it all began on May 17, 2013, when Sega made a deal with Nintendo to have three of their Sonic […]
When Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) was being developed, the people at Sonic Team were planning to have a port of the game for the Nintendo Revolution (aka the Wii). But due to not having enough time to achieve that, they instead decided to split the development team so one could work on an entirely new game for the console. At E3 2006, Sonic Wild Fire was announced. Later in August, however, the name was changed to Sonic and the Secret Rings and was released for the Nintendo Wii on Feb. 20, 2007. Upon its release, critics were mixed thanks to the game’s controls. So, is the game a wish come true? Or a dead RINGer?
It all began on December 20, 2015, when a Japanese biker found a mysterious Sonic statue in the Japanese mountains. Since then, Sonic fans have been trying to figure out where the statue is located. After years of searching for the statue, BxB-Meister, a user in the Sonic Stadium forums, located the statue and posted […]
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 […]
“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.
