The Sequel To BotW Started Trending Because It Still Doesn’t Have A Name

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2–Sorry, sorry. The Sequel to The Legend of–Actually, you know what? Screw it. We all know this is a sequel, and the awkward dance around its name is just cloying at this point. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 started trending on social media last night, following the four-hour advertisement known as The Game Awards, in part due to the fact that it still doesn’t have a name. Fans have been waiting years for proper news about a sequel to 2017’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,…

Sonic Colors: Ultimate feels best when it’s focused on going fast

After a half hour hands-on preview with Sonic Colors: Ultimate, I’m reminded of just how fast the world’s most famous hedgehog really is. If I’m honest, 30 minutes was nowhere near enough time to get a firm grasp on this garden dweller. Colors: Ultimate is a remaster of a 2010 platformer originally for the Wii, remastered in time for Sonic’s 30th birthday. It was well recieved by fans at the time, so I suppose HD-ifying it now makes sense. But if I pick through the blue dust left in Sonic Colors Ultimate’s wake, I’m left with the feeling that I…

Sega admits it announced new Sonic the Hedgehog game a bit too early

By Dom Peppiatt 25 July 2021 16:45 GMT Sega has conceded that its vague reveal of a new Sonic the Hedgehog game due to launch in 2022 was “a bit premature” in a new interview.Back in May, Sega announced that it is working on a new Sonic the Hedgehog game for release in 2022. There are no details – at all – about what this new title is going to be, and so far the only teaser we’ve got for the game features Sonic running… and nothing else other than an unexplained symbol flashing up during the trailer.In an interview with 4Gamer, (via Nintendo Enthusiast), Sonic…

The best Sonic the Hedgehog games, ranked

Sonic is 30 – so let’s celebrate by ranking his greatest hits. Watch on YouTubeToday marks thirty years of Sonic the Hedgehog, one of the most influential and important games in history and the genesis of a hugely important series to me personally. Sonic was my first true video game obsession – the games, the cartoons (especially Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, the slapstick Looney Tunes style one), and the comic books. The first online gaming communities I fell into, before I was even in my teens, were Sonic communities. In many ways, those communities set me on the path…

Have You Played…. Sonic Heroes?

In the late 90s and early 2000s one of my gaming heroes was an oddly proportioned anthropomorphic royal blue erinaceinae. Sonic the Hedgehog, as he’s known to you and me, was largely popular in this time period, with a string of successful Sonic Adventure games being accompanied by a non-canon animated TV series Sonic Underground. 2003 saw the brand spanking new anime Sonic X (the opening episode’s Sonic vs Formula 1 car high speed chase is delightful) and later the platformer Sonic Heroes – one of my favourite games of all time.
