  1. Great post. Fingers crossed that this will be the big return for Sonic and Sega alike. The decline has gone on for too long!

  2. Can’t wait for Generations 2. That game looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun and honestly I’m just thrilled to have the 3D Sonic titles back. Feels like it’s been a long time!

    • Yeah this new game looks like a upcoming Generations 2. I also miss the 3D Sonic games like the Sonic Adventure games or the recent ones like Colors and Unleashed. I haven’t tried Boom but I don’t want to based on the reviews. Sonic is still alive and running!
