Sonic and Tails get new voices for Sonic Colors

July 16, 2010

SEGA has just announced Roger Craig Smith will be providing the voice of Sonic the Hedgehog.

If your not familiar with him then you might recognize his voice from characters like Chris Redfield (Resident Evil 5), Ezio Auditore da Firenze (Assassin’s Creed 2) and even Shinji Hirako from Bleach.

Joining him will be Kate Higgins the new voice actors for Tails. Kate Higgins has provided her voice for characters like Sakura Haruno (Naruto) and Arietta the Wild from Tales of the Abyss.

For now we will assume they are the only changes in vocal talent since Mike Pollock is still providing the voice for Dr. Eggman. Jason Griffith fans will cry and the haters will rejoice in this news.


E3 2010: Sonic Colors Gameplay Video

June 16, 2010

This video was taken from E3 and we can assume no filming was allowed which is why keep seeing the camera move from the screens to the controller. Wow this game looks so much like Sonic Unleashed with a prettier setting. Seriously the graphics look very gorgeous for a Wii game. It’s nice to see they will be putting that ‘Hedgehog Engine’ to good use.

Amy and Sally in Sonic 1 hack

June 1, 2010

While browsing through YouTube I happened to stumble across these two videos that show Amy and Sally in Sonic 1. This of course is a rom hack done by E-122-Psi of Sonic Retro fame.

Needless to say it’s a pretty interesting watch.

Why is Sonic in a car?! This comic might have your answer.

May 31, 2010

Old news I know. But anyone who kept up with Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing during it’s development has heard the question asked “Why is Sonic in a car?”

Though it was already explained by Sumo that having Sonic run among the other racers in their cars made for notable size differences along with other issues some continued to whine about it. This here comic seems to explain why Sonic is driving a car in a ‘kart racing’ game.
