  1. It's kinda baffled that the Sonic Twitteraccount Team is doing a charity stream, yet they're not bothering to actually announce it on their Twitter account with almost 6 Million followers

    Seriously, are they forbidden to announce that kinda stuff?

  2. To people who played Diablo 3:


    What is this thing on the back of the Switch itself?

      You'll understand when you're older

  3. I love Erica Lindbeck as Blaze, she's doing a wonderful job.

    1. Zaysho


      huh, wouldn't have expected they'd use her. I was expecting Alexis Tipton since she's taken over a lot of Laura Bailey's roles.

  4. It's kinda funny to me how, other than the lack of Sega characters, the biggest/most common criticism of TSR in reviews seems to be "There should've been more stuff in it", which probably wouldn't even have been a thing if Sega just... bothered to give Sumo more cash.

    1. TCB


      That $40 price tag is all the more apparent

    Aw yeah, Pro LGBT Rights Sonic!

      Should have brought in Blaze, Vector,  and Ray to match up with the colors.

      This is such a great post but I worry it's gonna be removed in a few hours. Pretty sure that's happened beforehand whenever Sega social media tried mixing LGBTQ+ stuff with Sonic.

      @Red that post they made all the way back in 2015 for #lovewins still exists just fine.

  6. The Mega Drive Mini line up gets more fucking insane with every announcement

    The line up is just fucking amazing, oh man!

    1. TCB


      This very well be the retro mini console I really want to get

    2. Thigolf


      I'm so ready to pre-order that thing, along with this


    3. TCB


      six button genesis controller 


      20 bucks


  7. Jesus Christ that game content

    Jesus Christ

    Where the heck are my bundles tho

  8. Gimme a SMM2 Switch Bundle with some nice yellow joycons, Nintendo

  9. I'm really interested to see how the Illumination Mario Movie turns out.

    1. Failinhearts


      After The Grinch, I have faith in them again. So lay it on me, boys.

    2. Thigolf


      Not to mention Shigeru Miyamoto standing behind them with a whip ready to lash out when something happens

    3. Failinhearts



      Double faith.

    4. Strickerx5


      It’s honestly our last hope for a good video game move for the time being. Though, I will say I have my doubts. Both in regards to Illumination and Nintendo.

      It’s really a case of hoping for the best, preparing for the worst.

    5. SupahBerry


      I mean, Mario already have obnoxious small creatures (Toads and Goombas to name a few) covered for Ilumination. All they need to do now is bring the film together the same way Blue Sky did for Peanuts.

    6. DanJ86


      I just hope those little sh*tty Minions are kept out of it.

    7. Thigolf


      ...maybe the Mario & Rabbids game cutscenes were a beta test for the Mario Minions movie :P

    8. Failinhearts


      The Minions are gonna be in the movie. I'm not joking here.

      Every Illumination movie starts with their logo and a Minion interacting with something from the movie you're about to watch.

    9. DanJ86


      Aaaah, I was aware that those little f*cks had infected that stupid logo! Why did you remind me??


      De' horror...….de'...horror...!!

  10. *comes home*
    *TSR OST leaked*


    1. TCB


      O SHIIIIIIII......

  11. Still bummed by the lack of deep-cut tracks and easter eggs in TSR. It's not completely devoid of it, but there really isn't a lot.

    1. Dejimon11


      Music Plant would of been a great track. 

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      TSR looks like a great game that's being throttled by its budget. Sumo Digital have clearly gone all out on all fronts, but if they've got limited funds there's only so much they can actually do.

    3. JosepHenry


      @Dejimon11It is a PAINT KIT THOUGH






    4. Thigolf


      It's really sad to see so much potential squashed by not giving people the funds that they would need to accomplish that potential.

    5. do a barrel roll

      do a barrel roll

      I really don't get why Team Sonic Racing, let alone the Sonic series as a whole nowadays, has to be on such a low budget. I understand that the Sonic Boom games were a financial loss for SEGA, but they still provide fair budgets to their other franchises like Yakuza to this day, so why can't they provide a decent enough budget for their own mascot franchise?

  12. I'm currently beyond stoked for Mario & Sonic 2020 despite the fact that

    A. the game being like half a year away


    B. not having basically any interest in the series beyond the novelty of the first one

    and I'm kinda confused where the excitement is coming from.

    Not complaining, though.

    1. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      So...any idea where the excitement IS coming from?

    2. DanJ86


      Maybe it's the excitement of the unknown? We don't know much about it, after all.

    3. Thigolf


      I think it's a combination of them skipping 2018 so the usual "Welp, another one" turned into "Aw, it's back" and the details we've seen so far (the characters wearing sports gear), plus the potentially longer Dev-Time, make me more hopeful we're gonna get something meaty with care and effort? Plus, I'm kinda in the mood to play a compilation like this again, since it has been so long.

    4. SupahBerry


      Having spent the past two installments stuck with a flopping console, it could be from the spectacle of it returning on the superior Switch and all its pros.

      It's a Sonic game that doesn't need to be judged as much as the mainline series like Team Sonic Racing.

      It's the first installment to most likely feature music and locations from Sonic Mania and Mario Odyssey.

      It's the game where the two franchises get to compete in their home country.

      It comes around the time when Nintendo will launch their first theme park at the Universal Studios down there, as they mentioned that it's scheduled to be complete in time for the real Olympics.

      And, it's not the Sonic Movie.


  13. I'm curious what Van's original script for the Sonic movie was and how much of it is still left.

    1. Little T

      Little T

      I'm going to say extremely little of it remains, if any, but I'd love to see that draft somehow

    Today is a very nostalgic day for like 7 people in the US.

    1. Ernest the Panda

      Ernest the Panda

      Thank God Sega aren’t this stupid anymore. Right...?

    2. TheOcelot


      Inb4 SEGA release a Saturn mini which sells better than the original console.

    3. Ferno


      it'd have to release with a working version of Sonic X-treme, just like when the SNES Mini released with Star Fox 2

    4. E-122-Psi


      Well SEGA bothered to officially debunk a Saturn Mini ever being made in likely over a decade due to its finicky hardware. They'd consider a Mega CD or Master System Mini if the appeal was there however.

    5. TCB


      The Saturn is not our future 

  15. I wonder if M&S2020 will finally have a CGI intro again.

    1. Ellipsis-Ultima


      Oh yeah I forgot that Rio didn't have one.

    2. Thigolf


      2014 too. But that game barely had an intro to begin with.



    Whoa, that'll be so weird

  17. In other news:

    SEGA is surprised their classic games that did well in Europe in the 90s were particularly popular in Europe when they brought them onto the Nintendo Switch.



    When asked about the reception of the games outside of Japan, Shimomura said that when it came to people outside of the country, “the excitement of everyone abroad was higher than expected.” In particular, Sega Ages Sonic the Hedgehog, Sega Ages Out Run, and Sega Ages Alex Kidd in Miracle World were cited as being especially popular in Europe. Kodama went on to confirm this, saying people in western countries seemed to really appreciate them. Again, she noted, “… Out Run and Alex Kidd in Miracle World are so popular in Europe! I was surprised by that.”

      I think it was just Dreadknux buying like ten thousand copies of them.

  18. GodDAMN Pearl!



    1. Teoskaven


      Pearl is savage.

  19. There's a new Interview about the Sonic franchise with Iizuka


    My biggest takeaway, though:


    "So right now, Sonic is my main focus," he begins. "But at some point, I'd love to return to Nights, as that was such a big part of my career. Sonic is very important to me, but Nights is very important to me, too. I really enjoy the game, so maybe in the future I can bring Nights back to people."

      Little T

      Come on Sonic Team, take that break from Sonic that you deserve!

    2. McGroose


      A new HD Nights on modern consoles and PC would be great! I even liked the Wii game.

  20. Whatever happened to the SMTV game on Switch

    1. Teoskaven


      Atlus be like "What? You mean more Persona 5? Well here you go, son."

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Shhh! We don't dare speak about it in these parts. Best stop asking about it before the Persona devs strap you down and explain the glory of lusting for a high-school teacher.

    3. Ryannumber1gamer



      Don't be silly, Switch users don't get Persona 5, they get a Persona 5 spinoff.

    4. SupahBerry


      "You like da Dynasty Warriors?"


      "You get ALL da Dynasty Warriors!!"

    1. Bobnik


      ...Mind explaining?

    2. Thigolf


      ...oh, right. Derp.

      Sega trademarked a new Super Monkey Ball game name.

    3. Ryannumber1gamer


      Is this a remaster or new game or...?

    4. Bobnik


      Ah, that's neat.

      The video looks to be from 2012, so not likely to be related to the trademark.

    5. Thigolf


      Exchanged the tweet to actually kinda explain what's going on, sorry for the confusion.

      Sega trademarked the name for a Super Monkey Ball. We have no idea what platforms it's going to be on and what exactly it's gonna be (completely new, remake), but something is coming.

      And yes, the video was unrelated and basically just game footage that's relevant to the SMB franchise.

    6. Milo


      yeah the video's apparently from the PS Vita game released back at that time. that reeeeally needs to be clarified upfront. 😕

  22. Oh right, Mega Man and Monster Hunter are also getting a Live Action movie

    I almost forgot.

  23. -> Puyo Puyo Merch in american Sega Store

    -> No plans for European Store

    Gee thanks

  24. PSA:

    Don't forget that there's more Puyo Puyo gu-gu-gu-dness coming tomorrow!

    Smash Fanpolls are always interesting to look at. My fav is how popularity heavily shifts whenever a character gets (more) lime light and people remember that they like them, heh.

    1. DanJ86


      Pretty interesting. 2B, Dante, Tails, Crash, Rayman, Phoenix Wright, Shantae, Bandana Waddle Dee and Banjo-Kazooie. That's a lot of characters I like.

    2. Marcello


      Crash in the top 100? Disgusting.
