Keep a rusty spoon ready.
Sonic Boom is a monstrosity, a sad, sad statement on the modern state of the Sonic franchise. That it is being pitched as one of the tentpole titles for the Wii U (and for Sega) this holiday season, complete with its own brand new TV series and everything, is even sadder.
Each new trailer has made me sadder, once I have gotten over all the cringes that it has induced. This new one, however, I guess, looks tolerable. It’s for both the versions of Sonic Boom, the 3DS one (titled Shattered Crystal) and the Wii U one (Rise of Lyric). It looks… well, if you watch it on mute, and maybe reconcile yourself to the character designs, I guess you could bring yourself to not throw up in revulsion. Maybe, if you looked at it as a fan project made in tribute to Sonic…
Yeah, I don’t know, guys. Just watch it and get it over with.
