  1. Oh my God, that Header!

    I took me a while to realise what was so off putting about Sonic’s design, and it’s not the fur (though that certainly doesn’t help) it’s his mouth, it’s all big and creepy and just…wrong. And Knuckles’ fingers genuinely make me uncomfortable.

    I realise that a lot of people worked on this and it had to be released half finished but, am I a bad person if I still laugh at it?

  2. I’m having trouble believing that I just watched an 18 minute origin story for a character I’ve only played as in Super Smash Bros. Is this what my life has become?

  3. Well…that was…something. I was surprised to see James Rolfe and (I’m pretty sure) Doug Walker in there. I love Sonic, but I don’t think he needs a story mode. Seeing those freedom fighter soldiers talk about Sonic seriously was pretty hilarious. “We can’t trust him!”

  4. I do not consider myself a scientist, I consider myself a teacher

    Hedgehogs? There are no hedgehogs

    Seriously robotnic in the beginning just reminded me of some imitation Mandarin

    Also this was painful

  5. Huh, it was weird, seeing the Angry Video Game Nerd and the Nostalgia Critic making cameo appearances.

    Aside from that, pretty boring video, honestly, and with the tone all over the place. I’ve always failed to see the relevance of Sonic the hedgehog, and this does nothing to change my mind.

  6. Realistic setting, cartoon characters hilariously mismatched with the people around them, po-faced storytelling… Isn’t this exactly what people thought was ruining the series, that reached its absolute nadir in Sonic 06 and Sega then thankfully dropped entirely from Unleashed onwards?

    For all its faults, Unleashed finally nailed a style for modern Sonic that just plain worked, and stuck with it for another two games. Seeing a fan put their heart and soul into something that so closely apes the worst stylistic and narrative choices Sonic Team ever made makes me cry gently inside.
