Review: Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric

As a character, Sonic gets a bad rap these days. No matter what is announced, I can practically hear the collective groaning from my desk. Like any popular franchise with consecutive releases, some of them are going to be goo...

Sonic Boom can be hilarious without game-breaking bugs

Used to be Sonic games would at least let you stand in shin-high, Interstellar water. I stood in a lot of low water tending to my chao homies in their gardens (Dark Garden for life). This series was so much be...

Sonic Boom's game-breaking bugs are delightfully anticlimactic

Ah, Sonic Boom. I'm just in it for the laughs. I checked out after Shadow the Hedgehog and Sonic Heroes.  Did you know I actually missed the Janet Jackson Super Bowl nipple slip because I left at halftime to go pla...

Go try the Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal demo now on 3DS

Nintendo has announced that the demo for Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal, the 3DS edition of the Sonic Boom series, is now available. Full disclosure -- we haven't obtained a review copy yet for either version, and I hear we're not alone. At the very least, the demo for the 3DS game can give you some idea of what to expect.

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

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.

The latest Sonic Boom trailer is rife with quips and a movie announcer dude

Sonic Boom also has characters not covered in tape

SEGA released a little collection (with bios) of other characters in the Sonic Boom universe, whether they inhabit the 3DS version, Wii U version, or are in the television show. And there's so little tape there, unl...

I wanna be all alone with Alien: Isolation and more with Sega's E3 2014 offerings

Once your heart's broken, what do you do? I only want some pieces of you, Sega. And I won't be making it out to E3 to check out your lineup. There are a few games coming down the pipeline over at Sega that I'm more than a lit...
