Mario/Sonic demo does its job: I want the full game

Hooray for demos! Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games (This is possibly my least favorite game title of all time) has just landed on eShop in demo format. It’s spectacular and a lot of fun to play through, running you through a medley competition involving target shooting, goal kicking, trampoline, swimming and BMX racing. It’s worth mentioning again: this game is spectacu...

“Sonic, I don’t hate you anymore.”

Nintendo Power editor Chris Slate wrote a great column this month on Sonic vs Mario. I enjoyed it so much, I wanted to share. Here it is transcribed in its entirety from print to internet: Sonic, when you first burst on the scene bragging about blast processing, I kind of hated your guts. For me, no other platformer came close the Super Mario series. So when some friends suddenly sided with the ne...

Sonic Colors: Stale, or Classic?

I originally held this post back because of video problems but thanks to Nathan Janc over at New Nintendo we’ve actually got a pretty lengthy look at YouTuber SonicStadiumFox playing Sonic Colors at PAX 2010. Analysis after the jump.

So… Sega… Why isn’t Sonic 4 Like This?

Oh right, the Sonic cycle, never mind.

Does this Sonic 4 trailer do anything for you?

I missed this video when it released in May. But I heard first-hand accounts from colleagues that the actual game controlled poorly at E3. Too bad Sonic’s past is as checkered as his dirt. It makes it hard for good folks like you and I when deciding whether to give Sega our money or not. Well, sorta. You can always write them off until glowing reviews arrive (if ever). In any case, this trai...

Pre-Order Sonic Colors, Get a Sonic Hat!

It’s always cool to get an awesome bonus item whenever you pre-order a great game. Anyone ever get anything really cool? I remember you could get a Maxwell Scribblenauts hat a while back. While these promotional items a good and all, has anyone ever pre-ordered a game that was decent but not great for the item? I’m not saying Sonic Colors is bad, hell, It’s the first Sonic game I...

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...
