Sega teases plans for Sonic's 25th anniversary with Big the Cat

An image of the guys from Game Grumps holding a Big the Cat doll appeared on the official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter and Facebook pages today, along with the message, “We've got some pretty exciting stuff planned for the year, so stay...

 
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

Crush 40 let slip a 25th anniversary Sonic game is in the works

Jeez, it’s already been almost five years since the great Sonic Generations was released to celebrate the Blue Blur’s 20th anniversary. With the series’ 25th birthday rapidly approaching later this year, people have been w...

I still can't believe that Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games exists. If you would have told my younger self that both characters would be teaming up for not one, but multiple games, including Super Smash Bros., I wouldn'...

Mario goes fast in this impressive Sonic Generations mod

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

Earlier this year, SEGA issued a bold apology. The company apologized for accidentally naming its Halloween character "Boob" instead of "Boo." Even earlier in the year, SEGA made another apology for how shit Sonic games have been recently a...

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?

It looks like I sparked a discussion yesterday in my recent article on Sonic Adventure 2's twisted backstory. I drew a line in the sand between the first Sonic Adventure and the sequel, and a debate started up, comparing both titles. I...

Learn the twisted backstory behind Sonic Adventure 2

Sonic Adventure 2 is a pretty strange game. I remember playing it for the first time with my cousin, plugging away at multiplayer for 10 hours straight. For that reason, I've always had a soft spot for the Adventure sequel, even ...

Sega apologizes for Sonic Runners 'Boob' boner

Sonic Boom Season 2 is coming, you can't stop it

Sonic Boom rides again in Sonic Dash 2, out this week

Sonic Dreams Collection: Mascots, legacy, and audience perception

Sonic looks angry to be in Unreal 4
