And I thought it was weird that I played Duke Nukem Forever on Friday at PAX 2010. Did I also play a new Sonic game that was good? Was it all a dream?

A Kotaku reader I ran into on Friday named Mark played Sonic Colors and said he still can't stand seeing Sonic in a 3D perspective. He doesn't want Sonic to run into his TV screen; he wants side-scrolling Sonic. Reader Mark wasn't excited by Sonic Colors, the next big console Sonic game. But I played two new Sonic Colors levels being shown here at PAX in Seattle and thought it was pretty good; good enough that I asked a Sega representative to play it so I could film it and show it to all of you.

See Sonic Colors and judge for yourself. The game comes out for the Wii in November.
