    I just watched all the Hedgedog videos now (because I really didn't want to watch an incomplete thing and then I forgot about it for a month lol) and I just noticed the score counts. I'm sorry if we've talked about them already. 91623 in Act 1 must be 1991/6/23, 72216 in Act 2 for the day of the 25th anniversary party, 92716 in Act 3 for... something next Tuesday? And 2017 in Act 4, probably for the release year of Mania. Do we have any idea what that 9/27 thing could be?
     
  5. The release date for Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice.

    Oh. Duh. I wasn't really paying attention to Fire & Ice at all, but it was dumb of me to not look that up first before asking :v:

    Well, SEGA releasing the game is just a formality at this stage because it's already been made. Virtually nobody gives a shit about it, so everyone's going to forget about it.

    Well, nobody on the internet gives a shit, don't know what the kids who the game is meant for is think of it. Probably good to keep in mind that we're not the target audience for this game, which is probably also why Sega's Sonic social media team isn't doing much to advertise the game. :v:

    Probably also good to keep in mind that I wasn't really being entirely serious. :>:/v

    It's just that the game is being met with nothing but apathy, confusion and a side of negativity. It's a follow up to a couple of games that seemed to offend the entire gaming community with how awful they were, getting the some of the worst sales and reviews in the series' history. At least the M&S series gets decent sales. I don't know if I can really expect this game to do any better. It's got a series of the show to fall back on for a bit of marketing, but is that enough?

    The game is targeted at children who are fans of the television show - we are absolutely not the target audience for this game as hardcore fans of the Sonic series. The game for us is Sonic Mania whilst the children get their television tie-in game. It'll realistically do quite well as the television show is quite successful and popular. Sega green-lit the game because presumably its predecessor on the 3DS sold moderately well - the game wouldn't exist otherwise.

    That said I share the apathy for the game but again this game isn't for us.

    I just saw this on Facebook a minute ago and I came here to see if anyone's shared it yet. I'm still freaking out. I think this is amazing.

    ...And the Sonic Facebook page's response is just as incredible.

    Didn't know that this was so popular (and that's probably why it's so funny). :D
