Wow crazy, its been 25 years already!

Soo much has happened in this franchise, from great hits to disasters we've all taken it in stride and now were here, 25 years of the blue blur!!

What are you gonna do today? me, I'm gonna kick back with some of my favorite sonic tunes and play some games on my tablet (thank god for android emulation) and then grind in Sonic Runners because I'm a self torturing sadist.

SEGA has been releasing some neat anniversary videos for today:




No big announcements for today, SEGA is actually being quiet for such a big day. but oh well we all know that July 27th will be the mega day we all have been waiting for.

Until then, well >> NOW LOADING >> ...

And like that Fire and Ice is now making its return to the gaming circuits.

E3 2016 was great this year but no sign of SEGA and Sonic Team's mystery sonic game, which appearently will get announced next month on the 22nd. if fact save for the RTS and other investments SEGA has they were pretty much a no show...

But they did show off Fire and Ice and from what Sonic Stadium's Jason Berry is saying, the wait may have been worth it. keyword "may".

After being deemed a total failure on the eyes of SEGA of Japan, Sonic Runners is shutting down.

the service will be cutting off and fading into obscurity on July 27th, in the meantime use the red rings you got but you can no longer buy red rings as of yesterday (5/27).

users were greeted to this message yesterday:



I always thought Runners was a visually pretty game and I loved its tunes, but ultimately it was just an endless runner to me. guess I should give it a try before it shuts down.

I'd still go buy the soundtrack if I were you, its great!

other: status report on comics/games/etc.
date: 11 feb 16, 11:13
mood: bored  

First off, I'm not dead nor have I forgotten about this place, I will always report on something here.

But things have been...stale as of late. let me explain:

-Games:
Sonic has had a dry year and 2 months so far, nothing except Sonic Runners (which btw, was deemed a total failure a day or so ago) has released. what happened with fire and ice? well, it went into development hell/hiatus! its all due to a internal restructuring SEGA has gone through the last year or so, apparently SEGA, Sonic Team and Iizuka's new goals are to bring higher quality games to the market. all for the better I suppose...

But You know if you have been watching Sonic The Memelord on Twitter (if you aren't why not??) theirs been some teasing on an upcoming reveal soon. so something is on the horizon!

You can catch a full interview Polygon made a day ago here. it has interviews from Iizuka, Taxman, the whole Rise Of Lyric incident at BRB, and the future of Sonic and its 25th anniversary. its a good read, just ignore the bad Penders-level fanart.

-Comics:
Like the games, the Sonic Comics have been going through a bit of a dry spell since October of last year. subscribers were reporting missing or delayed comics and Archie been quiet about all of it. Sonic Universe #82 finally released last month after a 2 month wait but the main comic has still been on hold, now their are rumors of it being delayed until march because of printing issues. its starting to become frustrating and worrysome due to Megaman being on "Hitatus" (rumors are its getting rebooted) and Sonic Boom getting canceled people are starting to worry if Sonic is getting pushed aside for Archie's other comics which went through a sort of "New 52" reboot.

Unlike the games though, everything is grey when it comes to the comics as of late so no silver lining as of yet.

-Etc:
~Waiting to hear about something on the live action movie this year? well too bad, no movie for you!! wait until 2018. yep looks like its in development hell :\

~A new sonic game has been found!! no shit I mean it new new, as in hasn't been heard of in 20 years new and no one even knew of it. The name is "SEGASonic Bros" its a puzzle type game made by Fukio Mitsuji, who made Puzzle Bobble (Bust A Move in the US). it apparently ran in test markets in Japan arcades and failed horribly and was just buried for 20 years. Shoutime, the arcade board dumper who gave us Sonic Patrol Car and Sonic Popcorn Maker dumped, found it and has been teasing with screenshots since. I'll be making a full post about this once its released in the meantime keep an eye on Shoutime's tumblr.

~Mario and Sonic Rio 2016 got release dates. Yaaaay?...

~Nazo Unleashed 2 was announced! and Charka-X gave us a teaser and it looks glorious!

stupid plot aside, I can't wait for this. 2019 can't come sooner.

~And finally, Sonic Paradox got their old Youtube channel back after a year and a half battle with Youtube. they uploaded a new short for the occasion called "Robotnik Shorts", if you're a fan of Dr. Weird from Aqua Teen Hunger Force you'll like it.

So, all caught up for now. this should prove I'am active still and will report on anything important when it comes up. catch ya later!!
