Second time’s the charm? Kind of baffling, really, but maybe they’ll have the same kind of sequel semi-success that Ubisoft had with Red Steel 2. [Image, source both 1up.com]

Pop quiz

If you take three sub-par action titles that didn’t do well on the Wii because they weren’t really all that good to begin with, and then package them into a three pack with the word “violence” on the cover, will they sell better and be received warmly by the enthusiast gaming press? Multi-part answer: No, and *probably* not, depending on who’s writing the article. Als...

Footage of Sonic 4 leaked to the Net

No word on how the leak happened or who leaked the footage but at least we can see some game play in action, besides some early glitches. What are your thoughts about the game after seeing it in motion? [Via Onpause.org]

Sonic 4 confirmed, 2D game arrives this summer on WiiWare, PSN, Xbox Live Arcade

Sega must read Infendo. That’s all there is to it. A 2D Sonic, downloadable via WiiWare, Xbox Live and PSN, will arrive this summer. Called Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1, it looks to be an episodic take on the classic, if not slightly forgotten and abused character. We at Infendo would say we hate being right and thank you, Sega, for listening, but we know they’re probably too hard a...

Youtube Tuesday – Project Needlemouse needs the entire game soundtrack to sound exactly like this…

Now if only the game would be released on the system a majority of the Sega fans migrated too; things would be great all around.

Deep blue thoughts

If developers today really cared about the consumer—nay, the gamer—there’d be a 2D NEW Sonic the Hedgehog title on the Wii, complete with mass marketing and viral advertising, akin to what Nintendo did with NEW Super Mario Bros Wii. Just Sonic vs. Doctor Robotnik. No voice acting and no filler. No experimenting. No worthless online features or over-hyped, under-delivering multipl...

The Gaming Historian’s biopic of Sonic documents Nintendo’s first challenger

A little drier than usual but still enlightening.

Don’t you wish Nintendo, Capcom, and Sega still made games together?

From MSNBC’s Top 5 defunct game developers: I bet you didn’t know Nintendo, Capcom, and Sega created a joint venture at one time to make games. Well, they did. And it was awesome. Dubbed Flagship, the studio was entrusted with developing successors to several household names in gaming — “Zelda,” “Kirby,” “Resident Evil,” and “Onimusha” to be exact — before being dissolv...

Sega “considering” next mature Wii game

Sega is BFF with Wii. At least that’s what one managing director for the company says, after releasing three core titles on Wii (Overkill, MadWorld, and Conduit). “House of the Dead: Overkill was a profitable title for us,” revealed Gary Dunn, MD of European development for Sega, speaking exclusively to GamesIndustry.biz. “Whilst MadWorld commercially didn’t sell what...

Happy Birthday Sonic, How old are you Now?

Has it really been a year already Sonic? Today marks your 18th Birthday, bringing you closer to what would seem like a great opportunity for Sega to release a best of 20th anniversary collection. I know it’s been hard lately, you had a few rough years, but we still beleave in your speed. You may have lost some of it in Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games, but we know you were just making it...

Bad news, multiplayer fans: The Conduit plays like you’re walking on honey

Don’t believe the hype. I played The Conduit’s multiplayer mode this week at E3 and was underwhelmed to say the least. I don’t remember the single player mode moving this slow, but multiplayer plays as fast as Mario trudging through thick honey. Keep in mind, I cut my teeth on the ultra fast Unreal Tournament, but The Conduit moves noticeably slower than even Halo. It was a major...

Sonic racing game leaked by SEGA Europe

Sorry, Tails. My money’s on Sonic. SEGA Europe today revealed Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing, a kart racer featuring some of the company’s most popular characters. The game is currently scheduled to release in early 2010 for multiple platforms, Wii and DS included.
