  1. The studio that did the visual effects for the Sonic movie has closed down.

    People claiming to be employees are reporting they had to work 17 hour shifts on 2 'infamous' projects.

      So company goes under because they wasted themselves fixing a big mistake the higher ups shouldn't have made in the first place. Way to go, hedgehog. 


      Well, at least we're one step closer to be rid of Disney remakes.

      This is disgusting for so many reasons. No matter what you think about the movies they were involved with, the fact is that these are people who just lost their jobs after doing nothing wrong. If anything, the things people take issue with (Sonic's initial design, the lions being too realistic) were all decisions made near the top of the production staff, not these guys.

      The idea that there are people out there who might've been forced to work on some idiot's "vision" of this franchise, followed by having to spend long hours redoing that work because everyone and their mother finally told him that shit wasn't going to cut it, and then get fired on top of it all (more than likely some executive can save a buck or two) is sickening. I really hope these guys land on their feet.

      Cause real talk, there are some incredibly talented people there. People like to point and laugh things like the Sonic movie but that's far from their more notable outings. The article alone names things like GotG, Life of Pi, The Jungle Book, and gd Detective Pikachu.

      What a mess.

  2. Don't forget! This Sonic game celebrates it's 15th anniversary today!

  3. I found some official artwork of Sonic flipping the bird.

      Wasn't there a scene in Sonic X where Eggman flips the bird and it was cut/censored for the western releases?

      let's start a petition to have a middle finger version of the thumbs up status reaction symbol

      I think that screenshot’s edited.

  4. It's my birthday today... So please watch my new video as my birthday gift...

    It's about Big.


  5. * Stands on a barstool and sings happy birthday.

    * Sits back down.

    Thank you.

  6. I filmed a re-creation of what happens every time I give my opinion. 


  7. The Sonic Sphere Boosters are outstanding guys...

      For a second i thought this was a new gameplay mechanic idea.

  8. So that new Sonic Monopoly.

    I accidentally improved the images and you can now see the entire board clearly.

    Check the topic 

  9. Sonic: The Shadow World | The 2005 Undeveloped Pitch

      Seems like it this would've been the canon version of Sonic.EXE. I would've done a mechanic where Sonic can jump between Sonic World and Shadow World in the same level similar to an Ordinary Sonic Hack. I do feel ShTH did enough to fulfill stepping into the edgy and scary origins of Shadow making this a tad redundant, let alone be labeled with Sonic becoming too serious and Shadow focused in that period of time.


      And there's no need to worry about making Shadow's lore consistent when we have Blaze and Eggman Nega.

    Jet Set Radio is on the Mega Drive Mini!

      You think this is a leaked description for a Dreamcast mini that they pasted in by mistake? I can't think of any other way that could happen...

    GTA V Now has an actual gambling Casino in the game which takes real world money but doesn't pay out!




    1. tailsBOOM!


      ... What does the picture have to do with the post

    2. TCB


      ...oh that is what supposed to be shown I thought it was that display bug whenever you load the page the first time 


      ...i don't get it

    3. Harkofthewaa


      Hey, at least Rockstar is upfront that it's gambling, unlike EA and their "surprise mechanics". Still scummy as a hell though.

      I have no fucking clue what happened there... ... I could fix it... But....

      I really don't wanna.

      >actual, literal gambling


  12. (Tweet) The giant Sega World London statue has been found!

      I can't belive Sonic was buried alive

  13. (Read all the tweets)

    Asda (UK Wal-Mart) just really pissed me off...


    1. tailsBOOM!


      Damn that sucks

  14. So for those who said earlier that TSR had been discounted this week which shows... something...

    Turns out this is a deliberate temporary price cut promotion for Sonic's 28th birthday.

    1. Thigolf


      I'm aware.

      It's just that a game usually doesn't drop in price to 75% that quickly, even in a franchise sale. Most of the time, it's more like "Here's our latest entry, have a nice little 10% off to maybe make you bite", not "Our game's been out for only a month and the already budget game dropped down a quarter in price"

    Look at this new Sonic Book!


    1. Panda Claus

      Panda Claus

      I saw this on Amazon and thought it actually looked pretty nifty.

      ...and then you had to go and make me properly examine the pages.

    2. Blue Blood

      Blimey this is awful. It's unofficial and not claiming to be anything more, but I think SEGA should shut this down. It's shoddy.

      @Blue Blood

      It gets worse! I've added more tweets... The book is using stolen fan and official art.

      Every page is ripped off from various fan site articles and wikipedia pages.

      Not spotted anything from Retro yet but the sonic fandom wiki has definitely been plagiarised.

      The caption thing could just be because it’s a preview and they’ll be added later.

    So it looks like there was another Sega Roadshow which nobody knew existed.

    Zavok is British.

  18. Sega just reveal that PSO2 is not confirmed for Europe...


    1. Thigolf




    2. gato



      EDIT: Oh nvm, it's probably the licencing hell I mentioned on another status.

    3. Polkadi~☆


      are you fucking serious

    4. gato


      Oh yeah, and I also forgot PSO2's favorite way of delivering cosmetics is via a fucking scratch. That's probably also going to rise a stink somewhere.

  19. (Tweet) Last night... the funniest glitch in Team Sonic Racing was discovered...


    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Of course the 06 character plays a part in this

    2. Jingilator


      Well, I guess Zavok meant it when he said he wasn’t afraid of heights.

  20. (Video)

    Ok so.... I analysed Team Sonic Racing...


  21. Owf... Dem Terminator Dark Fate plot leaks...

  22. (Video)
