Bizarre Sonic Prime Announcement Causes Confusion for Fans



Quote
"Check out the Sonic Prime: Shatterverse Experience in LA this Saturday!
1/28 | 10am-8pm PST 3rd St Promenade | Santa Monica, CA"
The Tweet above has countless responses wondering what exactly the event entails, and what attendees can expect.
The whole thing is quite bizarre, especially the way Sega just casually mentioned it without any kind of fanfare.
Given the offhandedness of the announcement, fans probably shouldn't expect anything too major to come from it, but stranger things have happened!

Jason Momoa In Talks For Sonic The Hedgehog 3



Quote
According to our trusted and proven sources, the Game of Thrones star is looking to join yet another mega-franchise, and we suspect that he is being brought in to voice fan-favorite antihero character Shadow the Hedgehog.
Last year’s Sonic the Hedgehog 2 set up Shadow as the potential adversary for the speedy blue protagonist, so it feels like a gimme for Jason Momoa in Sonic 3.

Sonic The Hedgehog concept art reveals he used to be a pair of human twins







Quote
When asked by a fan if Twin Stars can be considered the earliest prototype for Sonic, Ohshima explained that when he submitted the project, ‘only smooth maps and loops and runs were approved.’ So, it sounds like the idea of a fast-paced platformer was always part of the plan.
Twin Stars has also drawn comparisons to the Nights games, which featured a similar premise of a dream world plagued by nightmares and dual protagonists.

I remember talking about this on SNN. I was saying the character designs look sweet and have potential for other uses. Maybe puzzle games or micro-game collections.

Twins brothers... They somehow reminded me of Rainbow Island, Snow Bros, Bob and Bub, TwinBro, and ..uh.. Mario Bros

Sonic Frontiers Speedrunner Beats Game In Under One Hour

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fn-6kNziIww

Quote
Katie4 is the speedrunner responsible for officially achieving Frontiers' first sub-hour run. You can watch the whole run from start to finish below, and it'll

take up less of your day than it would to watch the debut episode of The Last Of Us on HBO.
Now topping the Sonic Frontiers speedrunning chart at speedrun.com, you'll see that Katie4 managed to beat the previous record by a full ten seconds.

Sonic Spinball (SEGA Genesis) - Slightly Better Edition Hack



Quote
15,000,000 points to get an extra life (Was originally 20,000,000 points)
The player starts with 5 lives instead of 3. Not too little or too much.
The timer in which the final boss is vulnerable has now been doubled.
Other miscellaneous changes. (Pipes in 3rd boss are easier to break)

I wouldn't be surprised if Super Mario Bros. inspired a lot of games that utilized twins.

You meant Mario Bros.?
Mario Bros. and Super Mario Bros. are totally different games.

Conveniently skipped The End battle on hard mode.

I wanna read the script, what The End talks about.
Can't hear properlywith all those bullets running around.

I only started to play the fan remake recently.

It's basically the same game with better graphic so you won't miss anything from the original version.

Is that new Sonic X art?

Yeah, made for Blue Ray version.
