  1. (tweet) Sonic post credits scene leaked.


  2. <Tweet>



  3. <Tweet> Hey SSMB. I'm going to make you all go "Ugh" with a single tweet.


    1. Red


      Why are they even making a large Rouge plush. They could just re-release the one they already have. No one asked for another. Where's the new updated plushes of Modern Tails and Knuckles or even Infinite?

      Because bad people want one for bad things.

  4. Fallout 76 currently has the same Metacritic score as Sonic 06.

    1. The Master

      The Master

      Think people will make bad review jokes about it for 12 years like they do 06? 😛

    2. Dejimon11


      Congragulations Sonic you're no longer the butt of the video game industry.

    3. JosepHenry


      Thank you Fallout, you are the one that will probably tone down the 06 jokes and instead it will be about you

    4. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      People probably won't be making review score jokes about this because, as a GaaS game, the actual product could end up as fluid as No Man's Sky by now. The memes could be fresh for a while, but outdated as soon as fixes happen. So I kinda wouldn't put stock in the initial reputation being wholly relevant at the end of a games lifecycle in this day and age.

      Also guys Bethesda's been the butt of buggy game releases for years; the Sonic 06 jokes aren't going away because of this, lol

    5. Sega DogTagz

      Sega DogTagz

      The real thing to consider is that games this bad tend to kill franchises.

      I think Fallout will live on, but it'll be interesting to look back 5 or 10 years from now and see what this game did to the gaming landscape.

  5. <tweet>

    Don't worry guys that mean hedgehog won't hurt you anymore.

      Sonic's been at the whiskey again...

  6. <Tweet> So I'm having an interesting conversation with a certain ex producer of Sonic Boom....



    1. Blacklightning


      Come on Frost, you already flat out lied to us during RoL's production. Don't pull this shit too.

    2. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      I think I've found the site in question he's angry about.


      Gives the same score and talks about not being interested in the titles.

    3. KHCast


      ....wow lol just wow. Almost looks like randy pitchford tweeting that 

  7. (Tweet)

    I've been taking pictures again...




    1. Forte-Metallix


      Oh, nice! The new plushies are out!

      Where'd you get that, and is the Super Sonic one there, too?

  8. (Tweet)

    Hey guys! Check this out!



  9. Well my Sonic documentary is pretty much done, just waiting for one final image and then upload time!

    1. Operationgamer17


      Sonic documentary?

    2. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic


      It's a history of Sega/Sonics relationship with Alton Towers.


      Includes a lot of really old material and some rare video.

  10. <tweet> would like to take the opportunity to remind you that Sega were at one point working on these two things...


    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Did they think he'd honestly stand a chance against Nintendo's theme park efforts?

    2. Milo


      I'm still waiting for the Sonic franchise mobile app they announced back in 2015.

    3. Thigolf


      That's interesting food for thought, though: What kind of Sega Properties would make good theme park attractions?

    4. Adamabba


      they were also working on putting the crowd cheering "SEGA!" into Mania, whatever happened to that?

    5. Milo


      here's the source for that mobile app announcement, by the way

      can you tell me how to get, how to get to sonic central

  11. (tweet) Hey SSMB, my mum is seeing faces in the fruit again... only this time I think she's right.


  12. (tweet) Enjoying this way too much...


    1. Strickerx5


      When Mighty and Ray now have a better chance at getting into Smash than Shadow

  13. Video proof that Sonic is a good guy....


    1. Lord-Dreamerz


      Him just trying to save small animals like he always has done. ;)

  14. I has a crazy theory about Team Sonic Racing...


  15. (Tweet)

    Guys... this is the greatest hat ever...



  16. This is incredible.

    If you visit the UK Sega Store.

    It installs a cookie onto your browser which bans you from accessing the US Sega website.

    Confirmed on Chrome.

    1. Thigolf


      Works fine for me. 

      Edit: Oh, wait, I misread that. Nope, locks me out, lol.

    2. RedFox99


      You gonna report on this?

    3. Milo


      Ahahaha, wow, seriously? What kind of hot trash is that crap?

    4. Shaddy Zaphod
    5. Thigolf


      It's always Aaron who has to clean shit up, poor dude xP

    6. RedFox99


      That's the life of a PR worker.


  17. Another prophecy of mine comes true.



  18. So you know that Sonic tweet. 

    If you add all the numbers you get 666.

    Well... that does actually reference an old Sonic game...


    1. Diogenes


      sonic adventure is the devil, confirmed

    2. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      Oh we already knew that.

    3. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      So Adventure 1 Sonic is Satan.

      That must mean Classic Sonic is "GOD"

  19. Sega are dropping secret clues again.



    1. JosepHenry


      Well fuck here we go.

    2. Thigolf



    3. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      Wait until the 11th November and most likely it'll be nothing or something as silly as that toaster.

    4. Thigolf


      1 : 11
      2 : 22
      3 : 33

      That's what it says, right?

    5. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      Add them up you get...


      The number of the beast...


      Why would Sonic tweet this?

    6. Dejimon11


      Each time they tease something it gets harder to care about these

      Been a while there'd be a post like this in the first place. But I'm not sure there's much in a bland looking racing game that you could be so cryptic about, if this is what those numbers are related to.

    9. TheOcelot
    10. Ferno


      After the big annoying scavenger hunts in 2015-2016, im over any more of that stuff.

    11. Blueknight V2.0

      Blueknight V2.0

      Well this could be looked at in a few ways.

      1. Possible days for Announcements.

      The only way this could be a possibility is start with the ones. The 1's could either mean November 1st or January 11th. The 2's can only be made into one day and that would be February 22nd (now I can't find anything happening on this date other than the release of HTTYD3, but I doubt the Sonic film trailer will release). As the 3's can't be done this way.

      2. Time Measurements

      Now this one is unlikely as it could mean 1 hour and 11 minutes, 2 hours and 22 minutes, or 3 hours and 33 minutes. But this one is the least likely. Or

      3. Add the numbers

      This one could be likely. If you add the 1's you get 3, add the 2's you get 6, add the 3's you get 9. all of which are multiples of 3. But add all 3-sums together, 3+6+9=18. This could mean that there will be an announcement on the 18th or there will be an announcement in 18-days. Now if you count today and use the 18-days from now theory, that returns to November 1st as in possibility number 1. Which is the day after Halloween.

      So my conclusion is November 1st is when we'll get something regarding Sonic. Not sure what it could be though. If it's the film, Team Sonic Racing, Boom Season 3 who knows.

  20. Today is my birthday.

    SSMB is being mean and won't include me in the birthday list for some reason.



    1. PaulyBFromDa303


      You're too special to be in the birthday list. It's the birthday of birthdays. It is 10-10 after all. A perfect 10

      Anyway, happy birfamaday bud!

    2. Sonic Fan J

      Sonic Fan J

      Well at the least hope you'll accept a random passing Happy Birthday!

    3. Zaysho


      Seems your birthday isn't listed on your profile, wonder if we have that glitch again? I can re-add it on my end if you want.

      edit: added, let one of us know if you want the year too. Happy birthday!

    4. Kiah


      I had said in your other status about this that I would try to fix it for you. Guess I was waiting for some confirmation and specifics like if you wanted the year of your birthdate added but I heard nothing from you regarding my inquiry. Otherwise I would of just gone on and did it. 

    5. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Happy Birthday 🤪

    6. The Master

      Happy birthday man, have a good easy day.

      @Kiah @Zaysho 

      Yeah I saw. Wasn't ignoring it just had a bit of a funny day *see staff absence thread for reasons why* 

      Thanks for the assistance.

  21. Sigh... my birthday never shows up on SSMB.

    Oh well.

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Well, Happy Birthday to you anyway.

    2. Kiah


      Please don’t tell me that glitch is back...Assuming it’s the same issue I can try to put it in for you if you like. 

    3. Milo


      happy birthday!

    4. MightyRay


      Happy Birthday! I hope you have a great day!

  22. Would like to take this time to remind you that Sonic nearly looked like this...


    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Those designs will look merciful after we get to see what Sonic will look like in the movie. You know it.

    2. The Master

      Sonic in trousers is wrong...

      What even is the top right one

  23. My depression is getting worse. Really don't feel ok at the moment.

    1. E-122-Psi


      I get bouts of that at times as well. There's not much to do about it, as events go by, moods will change and this bad turn will hopefully soon pass.

      Is there anything specifically on your mind causing it?

    2. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      Lots of bad stuff has happened this year.

      Had it since Easter and it's not getting any better. Right now I just keep feeling like I'm a total failure that's let eveybody down and nobody would give a shit if I wasn't here.

    3. E-122-Psi


      I get the feeling of failure as well. I'm certain people do care about you though, and it only better amounts your life to keep trying in spite of hard times.

    4. The Master

      The Master

      Hey man, want to say I appreciate you. When I was at a low point, I watched a good few of your reviews (The Sonic Generations one comes to mind) and it perked me up. It gave me hope that I'd get that one day and be as awe struck as you were. Why would I have given you fan art if I didn't appreciate you? Pour yourself into your documentary. Think how awesome it'll turn out. Do it for yourself, to prove to yourself you can do it. Come on man, you can do it.

    5. captobvious42


      I've been feeling that way for some time too, especially the total failure bit with a touch of feeling VERY mortal. I'm not sure why exactly, though it has been a long summer.

      I honestly do feel that people would care if I wasn't around, but I'm also feeling very world-weary and frankly exhausted. And not feeling motivated to do anything as a result.

      I have been considering seeing about seeing a counselor about it. The place where I work has one and so does the college I'm at. It helps sometimes; at the very least it gets things off my chest and maybe even help figure out what I should be doing.

      @The Tenth Doctor 

      Whilst I appreciate the kind words.

      I really am at the absolute end of my limit now. I was betrayed by someone close, endured a death & was too afraid to say goodbye, been constantly in and out of hospital for injuries as well as a shit ton of other stuff.

      Been trying to find someone to talk to for months now, it's as if people just take one look at me and run, in fact when I look in the mirror now I don't see myself anymore, just a monster.

      Parents can't take my mood anymore either, it's my birthday next week and I've actually begged them not to do anything just because I know I won't be able to deal with celebrating the fact.

    7. The Master

      The Master

      I've seen a lot of that happen to you, your right, its not been easy or fair. But believe me when I say that you are not alone. I know my friend sent you a message on FB and he's been in a dark place himself for a long while. He may not be the best conversationist but trust me, he gets it. He's really concerned for you, always saying to me he wants to help. He'll hear you out and he's a person that will never run away from you.

  24. The Venom movie can now advertise itself as being "not as bad as Fantastic 4!"

    1. MightyRay


      A trainwreck you can enjoy! Thanks Tom Hardy!
