Sonic The Hedgehog Goes Open World In Unreal Engine 4

YouTube’s “CryZENx” has shared a new video, showing Sonic The Hedgehog in Unreal Engine 4’s tech demo, A Boy & His Kite.

Sonic the Hedgehog In First Person Mode

Sonic
Kotaku has spotted an interesting new video, in which we get a taste of Sonic the Hedgehog in first person mode. This video is similar to the one that was made for Super Mario Bros, though we have to admit that this ‘Sonic’ version feels a bit off. To be honest, Sonic game in first person mode would simply not work, and this video proves that SEGA’s platformer is not meant to be played via any other viewpoint, aside from the classic side-scrolling one of course. Still, it’s a unique concept so go ahead and take a look at least! Continue reading Sonic the Hedgehog In First Person Mode

Sonic the Hedgehog Gets A Cool Fan Film – AVGN Makes An Appearance

Sonic
Okay Sonic fans, get ready for a nice surprise. We’ve seen in the past some awful fan films that were based on SEGA’s mascot, Sonic. Most of you thought that a proper Sonic movie was not possible, right? Well, you were partially right. BlueCoreStudios released today its fan-made Sonic film, in which AVGN makes a cameo appearance. Sonic looks F’ing incredible, though the whole acting is kind of meh. Also, dialogs sound louder than the environmental and special sound effects, making the whole film feel a bit cheap and unprofessional (this can be easily spotted on the Sonic fight at 10:30 mark). Still, this is way better than what we got in the past, so make sure to give it a go! Continue reading Sonic the Hedgehog Gets A Cool Fan Film – AVGN Makes An Appearance
