Sonic Forces, like Sonic Generations before it, combines classic and modern Sonic the Hedgehog style into one game. And where there is classic Sonic, there is the Green Hill Zone. This one’s not too shabby.
Between a catalog of killer games on the Genesis and the Archie Comic series, Sonic the Hedgehog was a fixture of my childhood. At the height of Sonic mania, there was a handful of cartoon shows. My favorite was based on the comics and is now affectionately called Sonic SatAM. But is it as good as I remember?
I’m not sure what I love more about this newly-released ROM hack that lets you play the Genesis classic Sonic the Hedgehog 2 as Nintendo’s Yoshi. The incredible, detailed sprite work? The fact that the gameplay has been totally overhauled to use Yoshi’s eating-and-pooping mechanic?
Glamglow, a skincare company, released a special edition of their Gravitymud that’s branded with Sonic the Hedgehog. Last night, I smeared it on my face. It is very blue.
It is important, in 2017, to stay skeptical of any and all Sonic the Hedgehog video games. But Sonic Forces, which will be out later this year, looks promising for people who miss old-school speeding from the coolest hot-dog-devouring hedgehog on the planet.

Since 1927 the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade has been filling the skies of New York with colorful balloon representations of pop culture icons. Video games didn’t enter the picture until 1993, and only three gaming icons have made the cut so far.
Sonic the Hedgehog made his debut in Lego Dimensions last week with a level pack that sends Sega’s hero through several generations in a quest to find the Chaos Emeralds. We played through a bunch of it on Facebook yesterday. Want to see?
On November 14, 2006 Sega celebrated the 15th anniversary of Sonic the Hedgehog with a 3D adventure marred by unfinished ideas, a convoluted storyline, sloppy mechanics and horrendous loading times. And they sealed it with a kiss.

There’s a pretty good Sonic the Hedgehog game lurking under the padding and sports tape wrapped around Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice for the Nintendo 3DS.
The Sega Dreamcast was released 17 years ago today in the United States. A console defined by experimental games and features far ahead of the curve, it’s fair to say that the Dreamcast changed my life forever. It made me see what games could be. It lived up to the name; it was everything I dreamed of and more.
Sonic the Hedgehog has always struggled in 3D. From the picky camera of Sonic Adventure to Sonic Unleashed and its odd melee combat, Sega’s mascot has never quite gotten it right. Thankfully, fans are here to make it all better with Green Hill Paradise Act 2.
