Last night, a rumor circulated the Internet concerning a "confirmation" of Earthworm Jim 4 on the Wii. Unfortunately, it would appear that rumors of Earthworm Jim's return from death had been greatly exaggerated. Game creator Doug TenNapel has revealed that, although Interplay is interested in a new game, no such title is in development.

"I read the initial post by the guy who put up the drawing I did for him and almost NOTHING in the post he wrote was true," he explained. "I'm getting piles of letters asking me to confirm or deny the post and from what I've read it's total disinformation."

In our early discussions about the game, we had tentatively brainstormed ideas for the Wii. That is NOT a confirmation like the guy posted. We haven't presented the idea to Nintendo and all of what the guy posted in the article could actually jeopardize a real EWJ game coming out on the Wii, by Interplay involving me!"

TenNapel also revealed that, while we can hope for an Earthworm Jim 4, there are many factors getting in the way, like assembling the original team, the financial situation, and everything else that affects a game that we, as fans, don't think about. I sincerely hope we get good (and real) EWJ news in the future, but Doug has warned that we can't believe anything we hear until it's screamed from a mountain by Interplay itself.

Review: Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal

While Sonic Boom on the Wii U has its issues, there are also some redeeming qualities. Co-op is enjoyable, the platforming is pretty fun, and the 2D sections aren't bad. With a few more months in the oven and more polish, it could have ultimately been a decent Sonic title. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for the 3DS version of Sonic Boom. There's almost nothing redeeming about it.more

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...more
