Last year, Sega announced it was working on a live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie with Sony Pictures. Not surprisingly, the project didn’t immediately work and Sony recently put it in turnaround. Now Paramount Pictures is picking up the blue speedster and running with him.
While Sega says it’s created guidelines for Sonic, the assumption would be that promoting-Sonic-with-Hooters falls under them. I guess? Today at the Tokyo Game Show, Sega announced that it will be collaborating for a Sonic Forces promotion.
Remember that time Sonic cried because changes to the timeline caused his children to never be born? He had previously been king of the planet, but in the new timeline, Shadow the Hedgehog was actually king and had married Sonic’s longtime love interest, Princess Sally (Sonic the Hedgehog #166)?
For nearly 25 years, Archie Comics’ Sonic the Hedgehog has spindash-ed into history books as one of the longest running American comics that’s never been relaunched. That record is about to come to a screeching halt, as Sega and Archie are ending their publishing contract.
Between a catalog of killer games on the Genesis and the Archie Comic series, Sonic the Hedgehog was a fixture of my childhood. At the height of Sonic mania, there was a handful of cartoon shows. My favorite was based on the comics and is now affectionately called Sonic SatAM. But is it as good as I remember?
It was a dark day in Deadpool land when director Tim Miller, who did such an amazing job on the first film, left its developing sequel. He’s quickly found himself a new project, though. “Quick” being the key word.
Sonic is supposed to be fast. In fact, as an otherwise nebulous, frequently-rebooted character, that’s really all that can be said about... unless you grew up in Europe, where that was never the case to begin with.
Sonic is a joke.
As Lego Dimensions, the video game that mashes up all of your favorite pop-culture franchises, moves into its second year, the toymaker is pulling out all the stops when it comes to introducing new characters, worlds, and vehicles. If you thought you could give your credit card a rest after the first series, you’re so…
There's a gene that's pivotal in not only separating your right brain from your left, but also in making sure that you have two, individual eyes. That gene, and the protein it codes for, are both called Sonic Hedgehog. Here's how that happened.
It's always fun to realize that all your favorite childhood characters are completely disgusting creatures. Like Sonic the Hedgehog, who in real life can run really, really fast but would also create foam poop with its mouth to rub it on itself for no reason at all. In fact, hedgehogs love all kinds of poop.
What if video game legend Sonic the Hedgehog existed in the real world? It would probably look something like this. And this is disgusting.
A whole heaping of classic Android/iPhone games will be dolloped into the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace come "spring", including Angry Birds (yawn), Sonic the Hedgehog (good for a few more spins), Plants vs Zombies (another yawn), Doodle Jump (fun!), and a few others I can't pass comment on, like geoDefense and Hydro…
After some franchise missteps, Sega is giving Sonic purists what they want: 2D, 90s-style gameplay. And iPhone gamers will be the first to take the Blue Blur for a spin, when Sonic 4 Episode 1 hits iTunes on October 7th.
When Sega drone Aaron went out of town for a few weeks, his coworkers decided to prank him hard. Except "prank" at Sega apparently means "do him the awesome favor of turning his desk into a Sonic dreamworld." Amazing.
People are complaining that Stargate Universe is becoming a soap opera, but don't worry — it's got a ways to go before it reaches the levels of science fiction/fantasy's most demented, silliest soap operas.
And so, the true ruler of the Dark Side was subtly revealed; Dr Robotnik, how we underestimated you. [Boing Boing]
Just in case you haven't had a chance to play the original Sonic the Hedgehog on your Wii or Xbox 360 lately, now there's yet another platform that's offering the classic platformer for sale: the iPod. Yep, for $4.99 you can now download the classic Sonic the "I remember this being better" Hedgehog for all of your…
