Sonic Boom is Coming – Don’t F With Knuckles!

You guys remember Sonic, right? Blue hedgehog? Red shoes? Fights Dr. Robotnik? Friends with a yellow fox who, somehow, has three tails and flies around? Yeah, you know Sonic the Hedgehog! Well, they just released a brand new version of Sonic in Sonic Boom (and yeah, as I typed that I did it in a very bad impression of Guile’s voice). Anyways, here’s the new game that comes out for the Nintendo systems.

Overall, this game looks like a slight winner in the early stages, which is quite a step up (Who could forget the “fun” of Sonic Adventures and the “revolutionary” video game Sonic 3D?). The graphics look amazing and everything looks right in the time for making a good version of a Sonic game.

However, I’m pretty sure the first thing you noticed isn’t the graphics or how the game looks but you were focused on one character. Right? WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO KNUCKLES?! I mean, I know he uses his upper body but this is ridiculous! He just looks like a giant awkward red triangle! All I can think of is Knuckles took some major steroids since┬áthe last time we met the poor guy. That or he is closely morphing into a Battletoad. Knuckles is the Barry Bonds of the video game world. The dude is dwarfing EVERYONE in the game! EVERYONE!

Oy.

Also, notice one thing missing? One person? Like, someone who made the first Sonic game (and subsequently every single Sonic game out)? I mean you have Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and even Amy! However, um…where the hell is Robotnik?! If anything, it made me think that the single Twinmold at the end is controlled by Robotnik. I call it “Eggsnake”.

(Mini Rizz Rant) Can we PLEASE stop calling Doctor Robotnik “Dr. Eggman”? That’s not his name. Stop it. You’re making him feel bad. It’s not his fault! He probably has a glandular problem, you jerks.

Along with the new video game, Sonic Boom will run cartoons in the near future.

What video game transformations did you like? Dislike?
