By Rollin Bishop - December 12, 2019 04:42 pm EST Share 0 Comments 0 Sega has released a new Sonic the Hedgehog animated short in the vein of its previous entries, Sonic Mania Adventures and Team Sonic Racing: Overdrive, that brings to animated life the posters from the Sonic Adventure series of games by sending Chao to space. The brief video, which you can watch above, is extremely adorable. The plot of the short is relatively simple: Sonic visits the iconic Chao Gardens, but the real star here is a dreaming (and sleepwalking) Chao that is imagining a breakneck space battle while causing a ruckus in real life. Sonic must race around to prevent any unfortunate happenings, but that doesn't stop the unintentionally mischievous Chao from taking on the villainous Dr. Eggman -- and wrecking Sonic's nose! Brace for impact as forces collide in “Chao In Space”! Don’t worry – you’re (probably) not dreaming. It’s our little gift to you, … [Read more...] about Sonic the Hedgehog Releases New Holiday Animated Short

By Tanner Dedmon - December 12, 2019 07:23 pm EST Share 0 Comments 0 The visual effects studio Moving Picture Company has apparently shut down its Vancouver, Canada, office which was known for work on films such as the Sonic the Hedgehog movie, new reports have claimed. A letter which was said to be distributed to employees of the Technicolor-owned Vancouver studio said that the branch will “cease operations effective immediately” with layoffs reportedly ensuing now that the office is reportedly being shuttered. MPC is also known for its works on films like Disney’s new version of The Lion King. News of the alleged studio shutdown first came from a letter which was shared online in places like the VFX subreddit. This followed discussions beforehand that foreshadowed the news when people said they’d heard rumors of closures and layoffs. The embedded image of the letter below shows what’s said to be a statement from MPC where it … [Read more...] about Visual Effects Studio That Worked on Sonic the Hedgehog Movie Redesign Reportedly Shuts Down
By Rollin Bishop - December 12, 2019 02:09 pm EST Share 0 Comments 0 While there have been any number of teases for reveals at tonight's The Game Awards, producer Geoff Keighley and company still have a number of tricks up their sleeves. For every game that's been hinted at, there seems to be another that nobody's going to be prepared for. Case in point? Batman and Sonic the Hedgehog voice actor Roger Craig Smith is teasing... something or other. It's worth noting here that we basically know something Sonic is happening tonight, though most folks have assumed it'll have something to do with the film rather than any animation or video game. And WB Games Montreal teased what is heavily assumed to be a new Batman video game back in September, but hasn't said a peep about it since despite the numerous opportunities to do so. An announcement tonight would make since as it's sort of the last hurrah for gaming shows and conventions for the year. Lending this … [Read more...] about Batman and Sonic Voice Actor Teases The Game Awards Reveal
DuckTales. Full House. The Mummy. Roseanne. Twin Peaks. Seemingly every #brand that amassed a modicum of fan love has returned, or is set to return, to rake up sweet nostalgia bucks. So one would naturally expect video games—the Poochiest of all entertainment mediums—to participate in such a cynical ploy. And it has, albeit in a manner I did not anticipate. The newest entry in the "Why the hell is this back?" club is Bubsy, a name that hasn't carried an ounce of significance since the Clinton years. Though I respect its publisher, Accolade, for entertaining me throughout my youth with many quality sports games (4th & Inches and Hardball immediately come to mind), Bubsy is a property to which no one has as non-ironic attachment. Not a single person, despite being a character that was explicitly designed to appeal to 1990's teens with in-your-face extremeness. The personification of forced corporate coolness didn't find its intended Sonic the Hedgehog-like audience then, … [Read more...] about The Disturbing Gaming Trend No One Asked For
