Sonic the Hedgehog’s movie look getting a makeover

Sonic the Hedgehog is to get a redesign for his Hollywood movie, director Jeff Fowler has said following reactions this week to the first trailer. Seems he and Paramount have made the terrible mistake of listening to the Internet. Oh sure, I was there, slapping out cyberposts about my FASCINATION with the sapphire snuffler's horrifying human teeth but what anthropomorphic animal isn't eerie? Aren't all…

Sonic the Hedgehog movie trailer reveals his horrible human teeth

I was unprepared for Sonic the Hedgehog to have human teeth. Seeing as chilli dogs are his favourite food yet he eats them without soaking the bun in milk, I suppose I knew that Sonic wouldn't have the mouth and teeth of a real hedgehog in our world. I was still not ready for human teeth and weird lips. The first trailer for the live-action…

Team Sonic Racing breaks the sound barrier in trailer

Mr. Sonic the Small Blue Animal Guy With Good Rings is back into the racing circuit. It's certainly one of the lesser beloved game franchises, and I can't help but think that's because it would be ridiculous for a character whose super-power is being super-fast to trade that power for driving cars that are equally fast to all of his competitors. It just doesn't make…

Team Sonic Racing coming from Sonic & All-Stars devs

Sonic is trading in his power sneakers for driving brogues again with a new kart racing game, Team Sonic Racing. Sega today announced the racer, which is coming this winter from Sumo Digital - the folks behind the unreasonably good Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. Sadly, it seems Team Sonic Racing probably isn't another big wacky Sega crossover but hey, it is more racing from…

Sonic Mania Remixing Classic 2D Games; New 3D Sonic Coming Too

In the same way that ageing rockers prove they've still got 'it' by collaborating with hip young pop musicmen, Sonic the Hedgehog is getting re-re-remixed. As part of his 25th birthday celebrations, Sega have announced Sonic Mania, a new 2D platformer with a 16-bit style and zones inspired by ye olde Sonic games from the Mega Drive. It looks pretty interesting! To prove that Sonic's…

Sonic The Hedgehog’s Humble Birthday Blowout Bundle

Sonic the Hedgehog turns 25 on Thursday, which is a good cause to pull out the interactive photo book and look at how we once were. "Coo, remember when we hadta to fast?" you ask, jabbing at his cute pink belly in the picture. He frowns and tugs unconsciously at his neckerchief - give him a few years. "Ahh and remember when we wantedta go…

Sonic Lost World Spindashes Onto PC

I didn't mention on Monday that Sonic Lost World [official site] had just arrived on PC because, well, even enthusiastic impressions seem to boil the 2013 hedgehog 'em up down to being competent or good for a modern Sonic game - damning with faint praise, that. But! I know The Blue Blur (I do still laugh at Sega using that nickname seriously) means a lot…

Sonic 2 Hack Gives Hedgehog A Portal Gun

If you were a Mega Driver back in the day (or Genesis-er if you live Stateside) then you'll know Sonic 2 was the best Sonic. The original Sonic the Hedgehog introduced the concept and set the tone, whilst Sonic 3 tried too hard with its dodgy boss melodies and pain-in-the-arse bonus levels. Anything after that was mince. Sonic 2 was the sweet spot in the…

No Disc Required: Sonic CD Heading To PC

The early/mid 90s was a confusing time to love Sega games. Sure, they were still pumping out classic software left, right and centre, but they couldn't make their mind up about which piece of home console hardware they wanted you to own the most. The Mega CD was a CD based expansion for their trusty Mega Drive, which let you play many of the same…

Hedgehogging His Bets: Sonic Fan Remix

Is this allowed? Are shotgun-wielding Sega employees hauling a bound and gagged indie developer to a shed in the everglades even as we speak? Quick, before it's too late: one Mr Sonic T. Hedgehog is wearing his PC hat for the first time in years, in the form of a fan-made remake of his classic jewellery-thieving, animal-bothering outing. Given half the world's frothing/complaining about having…

New Sonic The Hedgehog PC: Spineless?

Alphaxion noted that old romantic partners of RPS, UK Resistance has broke the news of a new Sonic the Hedgehog PC game. It's clearly an entirely legitimate product from Sega, and in a Modern-Warfare-2 piece of relevancy, the eponymous spiked-creature is now homeless, living under a bridge and doing drugs. Nice one Sega. Developed by one chap in four days, it's simultaneously a revisionist masterpiece…
