Sega Forever is poised to be the ultimate retro trip

Nintendo isn't the only company with an extensive back catalog of retro classics. Sega was also hot during the '90s and their portfolio of titles is nearly as ubiquitous with retro gamers as the Big N's. While Sega has never shied away from...

These new Sonic videos don't feature much Sonic

[Header courtesy of Juanjosesa97 on DeviantArt] Nintendo may have stolen the show with Mario Odyssey, but that doesn't mean his rival isn't still looking impressive. Well, I mean, mostly impressive, since these new videos for Sonic Mania an...

Sonic Mania has a not so nostalgic price

Remember when games used to launch on the SNES and Genesis for $70? Cartridges were expensive, guys! I know I bought Shadows of the Empire in 1997 for about $75, so the whole argument of games being more expensive now a days is baloney. Tha...

Sonic Forces will have customizable playable characters

Sonic Forces will feature a lot of the familiar faces you'd expect (Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, etc.) but it'll also include a newcomer of sorts, a variable among a bunch of traditional constants. For the first time in Sonic history,...

Review: Spark the Electric Jester

When Sega don't, indies does. Or something like that. First, we got the furrylicious Freedom Planet, which is sold well enough to warrant a sequel, and now we have Spark the Electric Jester that combines the best pa...

Here's a slow-ish look at a new-ish Sonic Mania level

Almost every look that we've gotten at Sonic Mania thus far has been great but also mostly the same. Green Hill Zone and Studiopolis over and over as we wait for new content. Always good but always familiar -- even if familiarity is s...

I would still play this dated, lost Sonic skateboarding game

This has been one of my favorite episodes of the Unseen64 series, partially because of the lengths that folks have gone to in the name of game preservation. Years back there was a Sonic-themed skateboarding game slated for Xbox, PS2, and Ga...

Here's a little bit of Green Hill Zone in Sonic Forces

Sega is taking cues from Sonic Generations in this year's Sonic Forces. The Modern and Classic Sonic duality is back, and today we've got a look at the latter with a trailer for safe old Green Hill Zone. Fans have wasted no time picking ap...

Sega unleashes a trio of Sonic Forces trailers

While I vaguely remember Sega renaming this year's 3D Sonic game to Sonic Forces, I can't recall when that happened. I suppose I'm just so much more interested in Sonic Mania that I've almost blocked Forces out of my mind. The small bit we ...

Yoshi in Sonic 2? Sure, I'd play that mod

All the way back in 2010 a user named Xenowhirl created a fantastic mod that put Yoshi into Sonic 2 -- seemingly a match made in heaven. It was only recently released online, but you can experience it with the link below. I'm amazed that pe...

Modern Sonic will, unsurprisingly, go fast in Sonic Forces

The new Sonic game got its name yesterday -- Sonic Forces -- and a first look at Modern Sonic this morning (or last night, if you caught the off-screen recordings). As you can see, Forces forgoes the Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice style shakeu...

How does Sonic Forces' main theme measure up to past games?

The main theme for Sonic Forces has been revealed, and it shows a surprising amount of restraint. It hearkens back to a simpler time when Sonic had rock-oriented songs that kids listened to with their anti-skip protection CD play...

This year's modern Sonic game is called Sonic Forces

Sega plans to put out two Sonic games this year -- one retro, one modern. We know all about the former, Sonic Mania. The latter? It's less of a known quantity, but the details are coming into frame. The game has shed its "Project Sonic 2017...

Sega is holding Sonic Mania back until summer

Previously set for a spring 2017 release, throwback platformer Sonic Mania is now targeting a summer launch on Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, Sega has confirmed. Along with the disappointing but ultimately understandable...

Sonic Mania is still great, Tails continues to suck

Little Sibling Syndrome took over big time as I visited Sega's San Francisco office last week. I was there to see Sonic Mania, an upcoming throwback to the hedgehog's glory days. In an attempt to lead the demo, a Sega representative played ...

Oh yeah, Sonic Mania is also heading to the Switch

Right now, you’d be forgiven for mistaking Destructoid as a Nintendo-centric news outlet. Considering how much Switch-related info has just been revealed -- and with even more to come -- I’m sure that almost every games media ou...

Nickelodeon making a cartoon of 'world famous' game

Did you miss shows like Super Mario Super Show and The Legend of Zelda Animated Series? Well they're making a comeback with successful projects like Sonic Boom (Cartoon Network) and Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures (Disney). Nic...

Sonic's 25th anniversary, take a look, it's in a book

Although Sonic's 25th anniversary year hasn't been the greatest in terms of actual games, it did have announcements, and plenty of them. We're getting two titles in 2017 (one retro, one modern), and a ton of merch is already upon us, or in ...

More footage for Sonic Mania emerges

I'm not overly familiar with Kinda Funny Games, but they uploaded a 26 minute video of Sonic Mania that shows off a new zone along with Tails and Knuckles. I'm really happy to see that both characters look similar to their classic counterpa...
