Team Sonic Racing delayed until 2019, and why it’s a good thing

It’s official – Team Sonic Racing has been delayed until May 2019. May 21st, to be exact – an actual, definitive point in time that we can circle on our calendars, which is a huge leap forward after the non-committal “Q4 2018” that’s been haunting us for months and months. Anyway, here’s how the official Sonic account broke the news… Hey guys! […]

Team Sonic Racing is officially delayed?

In news that is a little sad – but not altogether surprising – it seems that the upcoming Team Sonic Racing may have been delayed until 2019. The news (well, speculation) comes via a tweet from @SAAC_RUS who posted a snap from a booklet at a Russian gaming event. Буклет с рекламой игры #TeamSonicRacing с российской игровой выставки "Игромир". По какой-то […]

What’s the best Sonic game to recommend to a newcomer?

Is it still conceivable that, in 2018, there are gamers out there who have zero experience of Sonic the Hedgehog? As in, they’ve never seen any gameplay footage, and their only knowledge of Sonic is that he’s a blue hedgehog? (That is, if they’ve even heard of him at all!) Picture that person, and then work out which would be the […]

Team Sonic Racing story revealed; still no release date

Some interesting new details have emerged about the upcoming Team Sonic Racing from Sumo Digital. The game is currently slated for an ambiguous “winter 2018” – which is a tad worrying – but let’s remain optimistic that the blue hedgehog and his fellow anthropomorphs can make it to this year’s Christmas rush. Indeed, Sega is keen to keep building interest in […]

Should we be worried about Team Sonic Racing?

Things are very quiet on the Team Sonic Racing front. The last time I checked Wikipedia, there was still no solid release date for the upcoming kart game from UK-based Sumo Digital. This surprises me, given that the game is currently slated to arrive sometime in Q4 2018, which is anytime after October 1st. So when I ask, “should we be worried […]

Kuu! The best and worst Sonic games

There are few things that Sonic the Hedgehog fans feel more passionately about than judging the quality of the troubled mascot’s adventures. None of us can agree on the best and worst Sonic games; I for one think that Sonic 3 and Knuckles is a thing of beauty. One of my friends thinks it’s “absolute garbage.” How to decide once and for all? […]

The heartbreak of Sonic Adventure 2

This is probably the understatement of the century, but many of us develop emotional attachments to video games. It’s probably what fans the flames of nostalgia when we get to see ‘re-imagined’ versions of Crash Bandicoot or Spyro the Dragon on our screens; I certainly feel a pang of Something when I see Tomb Raider 2 load up, or even when I […]

Green Hill will be in the Sonic movie!

Here’s a fun bit of news. A leaked photo from the filming of the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie confirms that the much-loved Green Hill Zone will be featured as one of the story’s locations! Check out this tweet from Twitter user @twip98… The Sonic Movie is saved pic.twitter.com/9xu9gsdlc9 — Ben (TWIP) (@twip98) August 2, 2018 I find this really funny considering […]

Best Sonic game ever? It’s top marks for Sonic Mania Plus

Is Sonic Mania Plus the best Sonic game ever? Well – let’s come back to that. It’s certainly the highest reviewed Sonic game in the last 25 years, which is amazing news. Check out this tweet from the official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account… With a 90 Metascore on Nintendo Switch, Sonic Mania Plus is now the highest-rated Sonic game in 25 years. Thank […]

Team Sonic Racing: There’s no ‘I’ in Team?

With (both) Sonic Forces fans itching for more platforming action, the next game in the blue hedgehog series might not be quite what they’d envisaged. Team Sonic Racing is scheduled to release in Q4 of 2018 and, as the name suggests, it’ll be in a different league to previous titles Sonic Mania and, ahem, Sonic Boom. Of course, racing isn’t an entirely new concept in the […]

The original Sonic the Hedgehog is coming to the Switch!

I wonder if there are any gamers out there who have yet to play the original Sonic the Hedgehog? If so, this could be their chance to indulge, as Nintendo has announced that the original Megadrive game is coming to the Switch this August. It’s being bundled with Thunderforce IV as part of the Sega Ages lineup, which sees a number of classic […]

SDCC 2018: What next for Sonic?

San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC 2018) is coming up this week, and there’s some good news for Sonic the Hedgehog fans. Well, hopefully. The event, which kicks off on the 19th July, will boast its very own Sonic panel, self-effacingly titled Sonic the Hedgehog’s Way Past Cool Panel. Which sets the bar pretty darn high in terms of expectations. According to […]

They’ve finally made a Sonic toaster!

“No way! I can’t believe this!” Sega has done the unthinkable and FINALLY released a Sonic toaster. Great! Now we can… erm… uhhh… In marketing, they say the trick is to fulfil needs that people don’t realise they have, and Sega clearly had this at the forefront of their minds when they decided to make an appliance that could burn […]

Sonic Mania Plus: Just who is Mighty the Armadillo?

Great news – Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the Flying Squirrel have been announced for Sonic Mania Plus! Break out those chilli dogs and rejoice in the streets. Less sarcastically, this might be confusing news to some people. I’ve been a Sonic fan since the mid 90s and I had a great time playing Sonic Mania when it came out […]
