Sonic Boom continues to air with it’s second season impressing many with sharper writing and more on-point humor. But the show might get some serious episodes coming up. Discovered by Donnie (@SSF1991), the show is getting a four-part episode (hour long special) in the future called ‘Robots from the Sky’.
From the sounds of things, this implies that Sonic and friends fight a major threat. Considering the show is part of the cannon that Rise of Lyric comes from (but it rarely ever puts much attention on that), this could be the show’s introduction to the games villain Lyric. He tries to take over the world and Sonic must work with allies & foes alike to take him down.
I’m looking forward to seeing what comes from this but please don’t take this as an announcement. This is a rumor due to no official confirmation from the creators, SEGA or Boomerang/Cartoon Network being released yet.
UPDATE – (3/28/2017)
Official writer on Sonic Boom came out to confirm the four-part episode via tweet.
StarCraft is getting a remaster in summer 2017. The new StaRcraft Remastered offers upgraded graphics & visuals, high resolution widescreen support, improved audio and matchmaking. We compare the graphics of original StarCraft with the Remastered version – all scenes are official shots from Blizzard and not made by us. These shots have a resolution of 1920×1200 and are high quality jpg files with 6MB+.
Marvel’s iconic wall-crawler is making his big screen return with Spider-Man Homecoming produced by Sony and Marvel Studios. The film takes place after Captain America: Civil War where Tony Stark gives Peter Parker a upgraded suit. Now trying to further his career as a super hero, he faces many challenges, with one being fighting a major villain on his own.
What makes this trailer so interesting, is that it covers more serious elements to the story. Peter and Tony fighting with each other, Peter making his own suit later in the film and implications that Peter has direct conversations with the films major villain all indicate a story that balances humor and drama. Early trailers made the film look more comedic but this latest one helps show that the film will have more serious moments when the time calls for them.
It’s releasing July of 2017 and we will have more information as further details come out.
Planing for a April 6th release on Steam, Spark see’s the return of the high-speed platforming many love from Sonic but mixed with elements from the Kirby and Mega Man X series of games. The trailer shows the game in a very complete state and it looks like a blast. We will keep you informed about the title as further information releases.
Final Fantasy XV is getting a huge update soon and it will be adding on to the ‘Chapter 13’ section of the game. New story scenes will be present, but how they will be added to the game is really interesting. One of them is giving gamers a ‘taste’ of the gameplay style of Gladiolus through a playable section in the chapter where you control him. It was a really nice surprise and joins the improved gameplay Noctis has when using the ring (he loses his weapons during this chapter of the game).
The first major piece of DLC (costing $4.99 on PSN/XBL) is Episode Gladiolus and will last about 2-3 hours in length but offers challenge mode and content you can access in the main game once you complete it. It details some backstory behind the titled character through a unique combat system not seen in the base game.
Both the major update and Episode Gladiolus are releasing soon, so keep an eye out if you loved FFXV!

During its South By Southwest panel last night, Sega revealed the name for its upcoming mainline entry in the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise as Sonic Forces. The reveal was followed by a quick teaser clip showing some gameplay featuring Modern Sonic running through a European-style city as destruction rains down from above. We had a chance to see a longer version of this stage.
Sonic Mania is getting delayed into Summer 2017 so that the team can have more time to polish the game, add more zones and create a great experience. To tide fans over however, a new zone was announced for the game, or rather a returning zone from a Classic Sonic game.
Flying Battery from Sonic & Knuckles is being re-mastered for Sonic Mania and it looks quite strong. Lots of fun level gimmicks and expansions on original level are present, with a great remix of the track sounding great as well. With summer likely meaning June or July for this title’s release, we will likely learn about more stage coming to the game within the coming months, so stay tuned for further information.
Sonic Forces aka Sonic Project 2017 was officially shown off at a recent Sonic event. Lots of details and information was released, so we will be breaking it down.
First is the gameplay trailer, showing off how Modern Sonic plays in the game. He mirrors the Generations/Unleashed gameplay style heavily and the level shown off presented the blue blur speeding along at high speed. Level design doesn’t look that impressive at first glance but this is likely the very first zone, so it’s easing the player along until more complex level designs open up. Generations comes to mind, as while Green Hill Modern was very linear, the other Modern Stages were far more open. Also helps that the level shown off seems to span miles upon miles, larger then any other Sonic level shown thus far.
The wisps are back too, as Sonic is seen collecting white wisps before boosting, implying that boost is tied to the creatures like in Sonic Colors. Maybe other wisps will return and we will likely know more in the future. Sonic is the only one playable, as both his Modern and Classic incarnations will be featured in the game. A third play style is happening but no information on that has released. It’s speculated that a new character or ‘Boom’ Sonic could be the third style but that is just guessing on my part.
Graphics and effects are another factor to consider as well, as it fantastic. Slash effects when Sonic races across puddles, explosions colliding with the landscape and lots of visual information in the background present a large-scale battle while you race through the stage. Story was detailed as well, with the game taking place in a time where Eggman has won. Sonic and friends are working together to put down Eggman for good, with radio chatter (not unlike in Sonic Heroes) playing in levels as Sonic runs through them. So the plot will be major in this title unlike past Sonic games.
