    The New Sonic Game Looks Goofy as Sh**… and Then the Dubstep Happens

    Let the trailer for the new Sonic the Hedgehog reboot, Sonic Boom, leave you feeling like a confused old person. The new character designs are really weird looking in 3D, and Knuckles looks like some kind of `roided out fan art. Then the dubstep kicks in. You can almost hear Sega begging the younger generation to get on board.

    Sonic Lost World’s Dialogue is Pretty Dark, Apparently

    Ever since Sonic Colors ended the so-called Dark Age of Sonic, the series has returned to a decidedly cartoonish, light-hearted tone. Sonic Lost World, the upcoming Wii U game, looked to continue that trend, but due to certain bits of dialogue it's been given an E10+ rating by the ESRB as opposed to the usual E. I suspect it was written by Shadow the Hedgehog now that he's out of the spotlight.

    Try Not to Get Nauseous Watching First Person Sonic The Hedgehog [Video]

    It seems like all the biggest games that come out right now are all designed to be in the first person. Wouldn't it be nice to go back to the time of side-scrollers? Or, you know, take those side-scrollers we all loved as kids and update them in the most dizzy-inducing way possible? Because that's what Filipe Costa did. It's like virtual those roller coaster videos, but better!

    Sonic Lost World Trailer’s Basically Super Mario Galaxy, But Sonic [Video]

    The Internet may have collectively chuckled a bit when Nintendo said they were going to bring a new Sonic the Hedgehog game to market, but it turns out Nintendo may have been on to something. The trailer for Sonic Lost World has dropped, and it frankly looks better than any of the franchise's recent installments. That's saying a lot considering it's in 3D.

    Facebook Nearly Had a Blue Hedgehog for a Mascot

    Sound familiar? According to early Facebook employee Ezra Callahan, the company's first president, Sean Parker (who you may remember as a villainous Justin Timberlake character in The Social Network), wanted to make Facebook's mascot a hedgehog and turn blue stuffed hedgehogs into Facebook's calling card. Suffice it to say that this is not what ended up happening.
    True story: in the very early days of Facebook, Sean Parker wanted to make Facebook's mascot a hedgehog. We had early plans to build a local business program around each college on the site (a Yelp-like service similar to what later became Facebook Pages). As part of that, Sean wanted us to send each participating business a little blue stuffed hedgehog. Matt Cohler and I even sourced a couple companies to make them. Sean actually wanted us to get a real hedgehog for the office. Turns out they aren't street legal in California, or something, but I guess he found a way to obtain one in Nevada. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on your affinity for hedgehogs) Sean couldn't convince any of us to drive there to get one. The local business program was shelved mid 2005 (we decided a revenue product wasn't as important after the Accel financing), and Sean let his dream of the hedgehog go with it. If I'm not mistaken, a couple employees who live near the facebook campus own a hedgehog today. I won't name them in case they are, in fact, illegal, but I guess that sorta counts.
