Well for those of you that haven't heard yet, SEGA is teaming up with Nintendo fully and are releasing their newest Sonic game on the Wii U console under the name Sonic Boom. The release has caused mixed feelings amongst some of the franchise's fans.

To start off with, lets go over the character designs: www.computerandvideogames.com/…

Here goes.. Going left from right, we'll start with Tails. To be honest, I'm pretty content with the overall design on him actually - not sure about the bandages but to me, he looks slightly more grown up and I find myself liking that. The new outfit is more like a mechanic's suit, complete with the tools and goggles, that's a nice touch in my books. Not much else to say, his design is pretty close to the original one!

Moving on, we have Sonic. To be honest, a few minor things bother me here apart from him looking like a Tekken fighter reject with that outfit: blue arms which looks a little weird to me and his kinda odd spines. Overall, nothing too bad but please, lay off the bandages here! This is not a combat anime/game, merci beacoup!

Knuckles next and oh good lord, what happened!? Did he miss legs day at the gym? How is he even standing? Why is he giant in comparison to the others? So many questions.. Ahhh my head!

--A few Mountain Dews later--

Right.. Knuckles' new design for this game does not sit well with me at all, it could just be me but there's no denying he looks like a tomato on steroids. As mentioned before, the bottom half of his body looks completely out of place with his buff upper body. His head also looks a little strange on his new body but that could just be me being used to classic Knux. Onto the actual outfit itself, or lack of one, again with the bandages, guys! Although the bandage idea doesn't look too out of place with his figure, it still feels slightly weird in the Sonic franchise. The only change I don't mind is the shoes, they look pretty epic but that's all there is going for this remake. He reminds me of Crunch the Bandicoot for some strange reason.. Insert grumpy face.

Last in the line of judgement, Amy Rose! First thing I must say is that she actually looks legal now, replacing her old umbrella dress with a slick kimono look a like - not sure about the shininess and the colour however, but there's no denying that it is an improvement. Adding the gloves to the mixture as well as the noticeably high skin tight socks,  I have to say she looks more like a tennis player. Not saying that as a bad thing though, just an.. Odd style to see in this sort of a game, then again I could bring up Rouge.. But that's for another time. Thumbs up to the redesign on this one!

Following the link pictures, I think bringing ol' Eggy in to the character review is just a little bonus(#9). I can't help but notice he looks more plain and simplistic than in his previous appearances, that might not be a necessarily bad thing but the mostly red suit is a bit of an 'eh' to me. You'd think with his IQ, he'd be able to get his hands on a slightly more fashionable get up.

Onto the game trailer now, anything to get Steroid the Tomato out of my head.. Link here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=h2N8g9…

After watching the seemingly short trailer, my disliking for the new Knuckles design only grows stronger. Seeing him in action just seems out of place with his large figure and peculiar upper body. The game itself is nothing short of what I expected SEGA to pop out as its next game, perhaps even more. I'm happy to say this looks far more promising than some of the games I've seen come out of the Sonic team, but perhaps I will be proved wrong.
I'll leave you guys to judge the game now, leave a comment below if you think at any point I'm wrong or so on, signing off!

hello, just saw the group and thought I'd stop by to ask, do you know if any of your members have old DEAD gameboys they would like to sell? I could make them into wallets like I did this one tatta-kasame.deviantart.com/ar… (though some things are customizable now, like the zipper color)

but I only take DEAD gameboys, I could never take apart a WORKING console, it would break my heart :(

Hm, not that I know of, I collect consoles myself so I'll have a look around for you. I'll make a journal about it to alert our members, thank you for informing me :)

Aha, I feel the same way, even when one of my gameboys broke I just put it in a decorated box to rest.

Thank you ^^ I see this as breathing new life into something that otherwise would wind up useless

And now a days I'm using my gameboy wallet more than I used my gameboy as a console! *laughs*
