Sum-Up Sunday: Bricks, Booms, and Mania, Oh My!

News concerning all things fast and blue over the past few weeks has started to pick up quite a bit, and since a lot has transpired following the release of Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice, I think it’s fair to say that a quick recap of recent events is in order!

Read on below for the full breakdown of our Sonic coverage since the Fire & Ice launch:

Week of September 26th:

The “hottest” news of the week – a new Sonic game at long last!
Have no fear, Boom faithfuls! Season 2 is almost here!

Week of October 3rd:

  • The week opens with the TSS Review of Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice, brought to you by Hero of Legend with a second opinion from yours truly!
  • The signature songs of Metal Sonic and NiGHTS into Dreams‘ Reala sound more alike than you think, as that week’s Mash-Up Monday has shown.
  • Good news for Xbox One owners! The Xbox 360 version of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is now backwards-compatible for your modern system. Now if only Unleashed, Generations, and ’06 got that same treatment…
  • Season 2? Can it really be? It just might! The season premiere for Sonic Boom‘s second run is listed for October 29th, though we have yet to hear any actual confirmation from SEGA or Cartoon Network. Fingers crossed!
  • Remember that Sonic Mania infomercial? SEGA’s right back at you for a behind-the-scenes look with Hoshino wine spills and Iizuka-san Fan Club shirts aplenty.
  • AaaaAAAA FREAK-OUT! Friday, that is! Animator Hat-Loving Gamer revisits the Death Egg Robot battle from Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and it goes off on quite the crossover tangent from there.
  • What’s this? Wallets crying out in emptiness after putting money aside for Sonic Mania’s Collector’s Edition? A commemorative art-book from SEGA and Cook & Becker ought to intensify that!
  • Jirard Khalil reviews Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric in a new episode of The Completionist as he plays the game to completion… well, almost.
  • The Sonic Amateur Games Expo—SAGE 2016—is happening right now! Try out a megaton amount of fan games made from aspiring developers all over the Sonic community today until October 22nd!
Finally, the big one we’ve all been waiting for: LEGO Big the Cat!

Week of October 10th:

With the Sonic add-on coming to LEGO Dimensions, season 2 of the Sonic Boom cartoon on the way, and more information on Sonic Mania to come, things will likely keep picking up speed from here on out. Stay tuned!
