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 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 […]

Is it time to let go of Green Hill, Sonic?

Say goodbye to Green Hill Sonic. Please. Think of the children. When Sonic burst onto our TV screens in 1991, he caused quite a stir. Players who had been previously constrained to the strolling pace of an Italian plumber suddenly found themselves defying gravity and somersaulting over cavernous spaces with all the finesse of a Russian trapeze artist. And the […]

Is Jim Carrey about to be cast as Doctor Eggman?

“Get a load of this!” Jim Carrey is apparently the ideal choice to play Doctor Eggman, according to Hollywood. Or more specifically, Deadline, who leaked the story. The actor, known for playing zany, slightly off-the-wall characters in movies such as The Mask and Batman Forever is reportedly in talks to take over the world in a live action movie adaptation […]
