Woaaaaah my head's spinning!
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 t...
Might actually be Sonic Adventure 3
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.
What do you think when you hear hedgehog
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 beh...
We finally know after 23 years...
For years now, it’s been rumoured that Michael Jackson at least partially wrote the soundtrack for Sonic 3 & Knuckles. Many of the songs in the game sound remarkably similar to some of Jackson’s: just compare ...
CJ called it
Remember when Sega said a new announcement was coming today, and that classic gaming fans should be excited? Well, I don't think you're going to be very excited.
Sega has confirmed that it is indeed the Sega 3D Classics Colle...
Aww hell yeah!
My boys Mario and Sonic are back together again for yet another Olympic games game -- this time in Rio de Janeiro. For the fifth entry in the Mario & Sonic Do Sports For Some Reason series, the roster of playable charact...
Get ready for a Big surprise
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 th...
Sonic the Furhog
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.
I tried to think of a Live and Learn pun
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, peo...
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 B...
Playable Luigi, Mario bosses, too
TRUST ME AND WE WILL ESCAPE FROM THE CITYYY.
One time, City Escape lyrics prompted me to unbundle my disconnected GameCube, set it up, play City Escape, and then put it all away, but the most interesting part of that story i...
Games as a spectator sport
When I was a kid in the ancient days of the early ‘90s I was part of a church youth group. Obviously this was before I morphed into a surly, foul-mouthed teen (and then an even more profane adult). Every year the youth ...
More empty Sonic optimism
That smoke'll make you choke!
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 ...
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 ...
I want to know
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...
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&nbs...
Typo of the Year
Someone at Sega made a helluva typo, accidentally naming a character in Sonic Runners' seasonal Halloween stage "Boob" instead of "Boo," which prompted this apology:
"In the current 'Halloween Special Stage' event, the charac...
Well, this is something that happened. Your favorite robot was on @midnight with Chris Hardwick last night. As our former video wizard Bill Zoeker tweeted "If Destructoid were going to be shown on television, this w...
He's the fastest thing alive
As far as Sonic cartoons go, the Sonic Boom show actually isn't bad -- hell, it's way more entertaining than the games themselves. For those of you who do enjoy it, you're going to get more of it, as distributor LER has ...
Not to be confused with the microtransaction-stuffed Sonic Runners, Sonic Dash was actually a decent little Temple Runner clone released in 2013. Now it's seeing its second release in the form of Sonic Dash 2: Soni...
Other 'past Sega titles' to follow
Sega is bringing Sonic Lost World to PC on November 2, 2015. It's priced at $29.99 and the NiGHTS-infused Nightmare Zone, a stage available as DLC for the Wii U version, is included.
In his 2013 review for Destructoid, Jim St...
Sonic the 'beautiful blue-haired woman'
In an era where every single game has to be inclusive, lest the pitchforks come out, Clickhole has provided a breath of hilarious fresh air. In a clear effort to parody Anita Sarkeesian (right down to the voice and delivery)...
Waku Waku Sonic Patrol Car
Back in 1991, when Sega was helping Energizer and Duracell achieve record profits, probably, the company released Waku Waku Sonic Patrol Car, a Japanese arcade game targeted at children.
In the years since release, when ...
Slow down, Sonic
Sega has hit the brakes on Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice, postponing the Nintendo 3DS exclusive's launch date to give developer Sanzaru Games additional time to polish and improve the experience.
The publisher says "it&rsqu...
Metal Harbor and the Chao Garden added
I’ve always been a huge fan of the Sonic games. Sonic the Hedgehog was the first game I ever played, and ever since then I’ve liked pretty much every one of them I’ve played (I maintain Sonic R and...
NOT some messed up erotic fan-fic
Something has happened to Sonic. It's been happening for years. Sonic is a weird porn figure, the subject of countless adolescent Deviantart drawings and erotic fan-fics by kids still figuring themselves out.
Also, us, when w...
What happened to you, Sonic?
Most of the critical discussion on Sonic Dreams Collection up until this point has been largely focused on it as an unexpectedly odd curio, and with good reason. An unusual mix of Sonic fan fiction crossed with Don't Hug Me I...
[Update: more pictures are available in the gallery below, like Waluigi.]
It's no surprise that the sprawling Super Mario Maker supports Nintendo's amiibo toys -- we saw Wii Fit Trainer show up in-game a few months ago. All t...
And cut content from Sonic DS collection
Released back in 2010 for the Nintendo DS, the Sonic Classic Collection was a let down. It only contained a select few games (and removed multiplayer options), whereas other collections like Sonic Mega Collection ha...
Yeah, work that camera Shadow
I just played Sonic Dreams Collection. I'm not sure if my life will ever be the same again after today. I'm so sorry for everyone already affected.
Sonic Dreams Collection is presented to the world as a series of forgotten Dr...
