Welp, here it is folks. a stage 23 years in the making.

Starting off as Dust Hill Zone then hinted in 2011's release of Sonic CD, Mirage Saloon Zone is here to fulfill the Desert Western trope we never got to have:







Nice to see Knuckles and Tails back in action too by god I love their little animations.

Also notice these?:

date: 21 oct 16, 01:30
mood: irritated  

And with that our first arc of the rebooted universe comes to a close. You can pretty much expect it to end up the same way Unleashed ended.

While I wasn't fond of losing every single character and storyline the old universe set up (RIP Shard), this turned out to be something real good for the comic. Allot of new world building has been done now and we've got a good cast of new characters to play around with for the next upcoming year.

Just wish we didn't have that fucking Megaman crossover again, fucked up the pacing big time.

For now starting next month until the next big arc gets announced (could be Lost World, could be Mania who knows Ian won't tell) were gonna be seeing short story fillers ala how Universe does things starting with "Genesis of a Hero", a 4-part classic sonic arc delving back into the early years of the FF Crew.



SONIC THE HEDGEHOG #287
SONIC BATTLES at the CENTER of the PLANET in “Panic in the Sky” Part Four: This is it—the cataclysmic clash and ferocious finale to the Shattered World Saga!

sonic boom: 2nd sanzaru game, fire and ice, releases tomorrow (9/27)
date: 26 sep 16, 18:54
mood: calm  



Hey, remember this game? yeah its out tomorrow!

Crazy huh? I feel like I'm still waiting on hearing on something for this game its been soo lax in advertising. SEGA hasn't been very pushy like they have with this title, maybe its because they don't have allot of confidence it will make stellar review scores but I believe it will at least do decent, at least you don't get some "Sanic hant dun gud sinze genisys!!" fuckwad writing it but we'll get 1 of those for sure.

But not to say they haven't been advertising it, it creeps up almost constantly on Sonic's social media accounts amongst the memes and recently SEGA of Japan has been holding gameplay streams (featuring poor PR girl cosplaying as Boom Sonic) and tutorial videos for each character. go check that out if you're interested.

Sanzaru seems to be confident they changed up enough to have it hold up as a good sequel. and its being written by Sonic Boom's script writers this time around, so it'll tie into the TV show in some way. hopefully the music is good Richard Jacques is supposed to have worked on it.

Its our 2016 Sonic game, but it won't be such a bad title.
