  • Random Somebody Put Yoshi Into Sonic 2, And The Results Are Amazing

    Sorry Tails, you've been demoted

    ROM hacks may be considered as slightly shady by some sectors of the gaming community but they lead to some truly amazing games which - under normal circumstances - simply wouldn't exist otherwise. Take Sonic 2, for instance. Regarded as one of the hedgehog's finest adventures, it's hard to see how it could possibly...

  • Random Sega And Nintendo Go To War Over Facial Hair

    It's like the 1990s all over again, but for a good cause

    Sega and Nintendo were once mortal enemies, fighting for domination of the video game hardware arena. These days, they're happy bedfellows, with mascots Sonic and Mario starring in games together and Nintendo even publishing Sega's titles on its consoles. However, both companies are...

  • Video Take a Look at This Super Mario Mod for Sonic Generations

    Looks surprisingly polished

    For those of you that aren't part of the PC gaming world, you may not be too familiar with mods.

  • News "Sonic Runners" Rumours Prove True, But It's a Smartphone Game

    We'll have to stick with older rumours for Wii U hopes

    Not so long ago there were rumours circulating of a new game in the works - Sonic Runners. As a number of fans were likely feeling burned by Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric at the time, it was understandable to be cautious; we will give some kudos to Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal on 3DS for being a...

  • Video Watch How Sonic CD Made A Family's Christmas Back In 1993

    Toot Toot Sonic Warrior!

    As you may be aware, Sega fanboy and occasional Nintendo Life video contributor Tyler Esposito runs The Sega Channel, one of YouTube's best sources of original Sega video content. He has shared many videos taken during his youth, including this heart-warming clip of him and his late father extolling the vir

  • Feature 12 Days of Nintendo Christmas - Day Five

    On the fifth day...

    In this completely silly run of bite-sized features, we're going to write a new version of '12 Days of Christmas' with a Nintendo twist that will, hopefully, be good enough to sing. FIVE SONIC RINGS: The easiest line to shortlist, though there was tough competition from the rather obvious but equally worthy Five Golden Coins...

  • News Sonic Boom is Doing Pretty Well!

    As a cartoon

    So it's rather well known by now that Sonic Boom: The Rise of Lyric is largely busted (although we think its 3DS counterpart, Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal, fares better). Even so, there may still be a silver lining when the word "Boom" is associated with "Sonic": the cartoon series that ties with the games seems to be picking up an...

  • Soapbox Sonic, It's Time to Talk

    Tom Whitehead bemoans the blue blur's struggles

    A grim reality struck me this week. A new Sonic game was out and I couldn't, personally, care less. If brief demo time and video footage wasn't evidence enough, the word of those in the team that own Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric was enough to convince me that it wasn't worth my time or money. When both of...

  • News Sonic Boom Exploit Allows Players to Skip Large Sections of the Game

    Current record for completion already under an hour

    As we reported a couple of days ago, a number of game-breaking bugs have been discovered in Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric for Wii U. The plot thickens today with the discovery of an exploit which allows Knuckles to jump infinitely when the game is paused between hops, as shown below in this video by...

    "We're better at this in our world"

They are both out on the 11th November in North America followed by Europe on 21st November. To keep us entertained while we wait the crazy cats at SEGA have put together a TV commercial...
