A bit of a softball, innit?

Fans cobble together playable demo for abandoned Sonic X-Treme


Canceled for being too extreme
Feb 26
The titled epitome of '90s raditude done in by hubris, Sonic X-Treme, was meant to be the first full 3D Sonic -- a Mario 64 colleague -- and the first of SEGA's star series for its Saturn system. Like so many subsequent 3D S... read

Sonic Boom 3DS review photo
Sonic bust
While Sonic Boom on the Wii U has its issues, there are also some redeeming qualities. Co-op is enjoyable, the platforming is pretty fun, and the 2D sections aren't bad. With a few more months in the oven and more polish, it could have ultimately been a decent Sonic title. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for the 3DS version of Sonic Boom. There's almost nothing redeeming about it. read feature

Nintendo has announced that the demo for Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal, the 3DS edition of the Sonic Boom series, is now available.

Sonic and friends save a real life cat in this Sonic Boom commercial


'90s commercials, go!
Nov 04
Although I know it's not cool to like Sonic in just about every context, this new commercial for Sonic Boom is pretty cute. It basically involves Sonic and his crew rescuing a cat in real life in over-the-top fashion, which reminds me of the gloriously cheesy '90s commercials I grew up with. I'm half-expecting Crash Bandicoot to jump out and say "booyah grandma!" at any point. read
