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

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 character 'Boo' has b...

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

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 confirmed recen...

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

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: Sonic Boom. Yes, th...

Rare Sonic arcade game coming to a PC near you

Sonic Dreams Collection: Mascots, legacy, and audience perception

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'm Scared, the ...

Sonic looks angry to be in Unreal 4

Sega: 'We weren't too happy' about the Wii U version of Sonic Boom
