Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric
/ Wii-U


Fans continue to uncover the secrets of Sonic Boom mystery patch

Why is it a mystery?
Jan 28
Sonic Boom recently got a huge patch on Wii U. Like 1GB huge, and developer Big Red Button wouldn't tell anyone what was in it. Fans have surmised some of the contents, but the hunt is still on for other changes. One of the ...

Sonic Boom Wii U gets a massive 1GB mystery patch

Fans figured out what's in it
Jan 19
Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric was a messy game, and it's taken far too long to patch it. After weeks of waiting though European fans have finally gotten a fix of sorts (it's not out yet in the US), but the problem is Sega hasn't ...

Review: Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric

It has all of your favorite friends in it, like The Incredible Hulk
Nov 20
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

Nov 12
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

Well...alright then

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

No Wii U demo though
Nov 06
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

'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.

Sonic Boom dashing to Wii U a week early

Gotta go fast!
Sep 18
In a year when so many titles have been delayed, Sega is bucking trends. The rogue publisher has announced plans to actually hasten the release of Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric. Quelle surprise! The Wii U action platformer will now cross the finish line a week early, launching on November 11 alongside its Nintendo 3DS companion, Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal.

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

Sonic is either a big jerk or kinda dumb
Aug 15
Are you tired of Sonic Boom yet? Oh, you are? Well, I guess you won't want to check out this new trailer, then. See if I care. The latest trailer details some of the enemies and villains Sonic will face up against,...

Coming to 3DS on November 11 and a week later for Wii U
Jul 24
Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric (that's the Wii U one) is dashing to North America on November 18, Sega announced today. It won't beat its portable (and more promising) companion to market, though, as Sonic Boom: Shattere...

Sonic Boom also has characters not covered in tape

Like 'sexy purple Rosie the Riveter hedgehog' and 'old tails-less tails'
Jul 23
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

Hatsune Miku all up in here, holla!
Jun 06
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...

Sonic Boom plays pretty much exactly as I expected

Not great, not terrible
Jun 02
