One thing we need to own up to with all these video game icons coming up on 15, 20 and 25 year anniversaries is that we're getting older, too. Just yesterday, Crecente was talking about all the trouble he has peeing lately. Poor guy.
Desperately attempting to please two different sets of fans on Sonic the Hedgehog's 20th anniversary, Sega has crammed two different types of hedgehog gameplay into Sonic Generations, a formula that never fails to create entertaining game reviews.
Earlier today I was wondering what qualified me to review Sonic Generations, beyond my capacity for saying "god dammit." Yet after a solid 24 hours with this game not only are my eyeballs properly tracking its sidescrolling motion, I've recovered my innate understanding of the technical requirements of a solid…
Sonic: Generations isn't swept up in the HD remake craze we're seeing with other franchises of a similar age. It's a different tour of its titular hedgehog's greatest moments, giving some classic 2D levels from the series a 3D interpretation, and vice versa. Fans have shouted for an end to the gimmicks, and for Sega…
Two generations of hedgehogs collide today in Sonic Generations, and we've got the launch trailer to prove it. Just don't watch it if you're waiting on the PC version (November 4) or the 3DS one (November 22).
So, you've held on, 3DS owner. You've maintained ownership Nintendo's stereoscopic handheld despite a software portfolio that's been rough going. When will you be able to play a classic arcade ninja or a beloved, speedy hedgehog, you've cried?! One Japanese publisher has heard you and their answer is soon.

Classic Sonic got his chance to sell folks on Sonic Generations with his demo back in June. Tomorrow it's modern Sonic's time to shine, and he's a lean, mean, generally screwing things up in 3D machine!
With two decade's worth of games to pick from, these are some of the gigantic bosses and wily rivals Sonic and Sonic will be taking on in next month's Sonic Generations.
Yesterday Sega finally confirmed the long-rumored PC digital download version of the era-crossing Sonic Generations, and this is what that looks like.

I can't take Sonic the Hedgehog completely seriously.
I present to you a pair of videos from this fall's Sonic Generations. To appreciate what Sega is doing with this new Sonic game, you'll need to watch them both.
Watch this video to get a look at the reimagined City Escape, Seaside Hill and Speed Highway levels from the Dreamcast era Sonic games, and stay tuned for a shadowy surprise at the end.
