Sonic the Hedgehog 20th anniversary

Sonic the Hedgehog 20th anniversary

It was way back in 1991 when Sega first premiered Sonic the Hedgehog for Sega Genesis. From that moment on, Sonic became the company’s most iconic mascot, knocking Alex Kidd from the title, and never looking back. From his first appearance as a dashboard toy in Rad Mobile, to his Sonic X animated series, battling with Dr. Eggman and Dr. Robotnik, meeting up with Tails and Knuckles, through Sega CD and Dreamcast, the Sonic Storybook series, and more — Sonic has been a blue blur of excitement for over 20 years. It’s no wonder Sega is making big strides for the Hedgehog’s 20th anniversary. Sonic Generations will help get this point across in a big way, as gamers can play through new and classic episodes as Classic Sonic or Modern Sonic. Will you guys be celebrating his big day at your house?

This year, SEGA ensures Sonic is more treat than trick

Halloween is infamous for bringing out devilish, frightening, and incredibly scary characters to our immediate attention. Most of the time, that’s a great thing. However, for what feels like the bast brajillion years, we’ve gotten a terrifying version of one of our more beloved favorites, without ever asking for or wanting it. The target? Sonic the Hedgehog. While the Sonic X toon lives on, the days of awesome Sonic video games feels like it has drifted to the distant past. Year after year, fans are excited for, then disappointed with, the latest SEGA has to offer. That is, until this year. A few weeks back, we got Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I – Sonic’s return to 2D glory. Now, coming up, we’re promised two more gems with Sonic Free Riders on November 4th and Sonic Colors on November 16th. With all these release dates circling the Halloween holiday, we can only hope its more of a treat than a trick!

Sonic & the Black Knight review

Sonic & The Black Knight

Sonic & the Black Knight has had a lot of hype working towards it, but according to the folks at IGN, that didn’t exactly help the final product.  They recently got a chance to review the game, which is available in stores now.  Check out a new trailer after the break, and a bit of what they had to say:

The game will wow with its crisp cinemas, slick interface, online functionality and pretty in-game graphics, but when you sit down to play it, you will quickly discover a slow, clunky, boring affair ruined by stupid design choices.

Night of the Werehog

Night of the Werehog

Well, we already knew he could turn into a Werehog from his recently launched video game, Sonic Unleashed. But Sonoic the Hedgehog is cashing in on his werehog appeal by also appearing in his first short animated film! Sonic and his pal make their way into an eerie haunted house only to discover a bunch of mischievous ghosts looking for a good scare. Check out the trailer, below the break!

Sonic Unleashed Review

Sonic the Hedgehog is back.  …as a werehog.  OK, so that part is new and weird, but it’s also cool and great!  IGN recently reviewed Sonic Unleashed for Nintendo Wii, and here’s what they had to say:

Sonic Unleashed is half great game and half tedious gimmick. The daytime levels will amaze you for they harken back to the 2D classics and are positively overrun with raw speed, zigzagging pathways, loop- de-loops and more, all of it complemented by responsive controls and good technology. As far as I’m concerned, these stages are so well crafted, in fact, that die-hard Hedgehog fans can probably justify purchasing the title for the sunlit selection alone.
