Ranging from the Megadrive era all the way to the Dreamcast, we’ll be playing memorable stages in both 2D and 3D. Hit the jump below for more screenshots!

Is This A Bad Sign For Sonic?

Posted in News with tags , , , on November 15, 2010 by Cazza

It seems Sonic Colours isn’t doing too good in the sales department. The game has just managed to break into the top 40 of the UK charts, but not by far. Colours is currently standing at the low number of 36, which doesn’t bode too well for our blue friend. November wasn’t exactly the most profitable time to release the game, what with the likes of Goldeneye and Call of Duty: Black Ops being released. Not to mention the release of Microsoft’s peripheral, Kinect.

Let’s hope that people are putting Sonic Colours on their christmas lists to Santa, it would be a shame to see Colours bomb. All we can do is wait and see if people are willing to pick up on the game. For now, it’s up to you, US Sonic fans.

Sonic Colours – DS Trailer

Posted in News with tags , , , on November 9, 2010 by Cazza

Finally, a trailer for the DS version of the game. Kind of hard to see what’s going on, but it is indeed very much like the Sonic Rush titles. The trailer gives us a look at the two DS exclusive wisps, Red and Violet. Although i’m pretty sure I remember seeing the Violet wisp in the Wii version. Oh well.

Sonic Colours will be available on November 12th for the Nintendo Wii and DS.

Sonic The Hedgehog’s New Voice. Yay Or Nay?

Posted in Miscellaneous with tags , , on November 2, 2010 by Cazza

I’ve been quite busy with stuff lately, so this slipped under my radar. We’ve finally been given a chance to hear Sonic’s new voice actor at work. From Chris Redfield to a blue hedgehog, how does Roger Craig Smith hold up? Have a look at this video, if you would;

Now, what do you think? Personally, I just can’t bring myself to like it. Tails’ voice is a big improvement but to me, Sonic just doesn’t sound the same. I can’t see myself getting used to this. So, I want to know. What do you guys think? Do you prefer this new voice? Did SEGA make a fatal mistake? Let us know in the comments below.
