Sega's April Fools' joke is a playable Big the Cat browser game

Sega has been aggressively marketing with their "weird" and "that's so random!" angle for the past year, but this time I'm actually on board with it. For April Fools', they've released a Big the Cat game called Big's Big Fishing Adventure 3...

Mario & Sonic at the Rio Olympics coming to Wii U this June

We've known Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games is debuting on Nintendo 3DS on March 18 for a while now, but a specific launch date for the Wii U version has been up in the air. Until today, anyway. As part of today's Ninte...

Sega and Sony are producing a Sonic movie, coming in 2018

What do you imagine a decent Sonic the Hedgehog film would look like? Fully animated, being able to properly utilise the many colourful and fantastic locations the games are known for? Maybe even a feature-length version of the frankly pret...

The Sonic Twitter is hinting at something pretty huge

The Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account is teasing something. If it isn’t just memes (which we’ve all come to expect from the Sonic Twitter), then it’s something potentially huge.

NPR's Morning Edition had an Easter egg for us today

Growing up, NPR had an image of being mostly for stuffy old white people. Imagine my chagrin when I found myself listening to it regularly. I had become stuffy and old! Except, every now and then I catch hints of somebody behind the scenes ...

Review: Freedom Planet
Here at Destructoid, we don't often review games originally released well over a year ago, but we are making a special exception for Freedom Planet. With a sequel just announced, I discovered we never reviewed the original, one of the best Sonic the Hedgehog-esque games I've played in years. Yiff out in the night with your fellow furries and prepare to go fast.   read

SEGA sez: New Sonic to be 'inspired by how it played in its heyday'

Sonic games are being removed from the Wii Virtual Console

The digital revolution has its conveniences. For instance, I tend to jump into FPS games randomly, playing a few rounds before moving on to the next one. Being able to do this instantly is great, and I don't necessarily need to own the...

Do you prefer Sonic Adventure 1 or 2?
