The screens and videos we’ve been seeing for Sonic Generations
put us on a rollercoaster of emotions. First we felt excited about the return
of fat, 16-bit Sonic.
Then we felt cautiously excited for stages based on Sonic Adventures.
After that we were concerned at the seeing Shadow the Hedgehog appear.
Following that was mild pleasure to see screens of a PC version, which was
immediately followed by outright dread at seeing Silver the Hedgehog in the game.
It’s getting to be too much for our emotions.
Today’s new trailer featuring many of the bosses you’ll be fighting in the game
has us moving back to into the positive side of the emotional spectrum...
month's Sonic Generations is trying to approach the beloved brand a little differently. Some of the
game's levels will take place in 3D, as was the case with recent console
while others will go for a classic feel, sticking entirely to 2D and
featuring a portly, retro Sonic. The 3DS version, however, looks
special. Because of the system's limitations, Sega decided to completely
eschew the 3D portions and to focus, instead, exclusively on classic 2D
Sega has said in the past that this version will launch in
November with the other iterations, but we're hearing rumors from a reliable source that it might be getting a
delay in the near future, sliding past its original date to early 2012...
We suppose we all knew in our hearts that Activision was
going to publish a game based on the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man film, but now
we know for sure. Spotted at New York Comic Con
was a poster advertising the title and, if the logos on the bottom are to be
believed, it's being developed by Beenox, the team behind the last two
Spider-Man games which were at best a mixed bag...
The list of best-selling games in the US this September was released by the NPD group today, and there were a few surprising entries, though it was mostly filled with the usual suspects. The top-selling game of September was technically Madden, but since that factors in sales across five different platforms, we're going to say the 360-exclusive Gears of War 3 is the real sales winner. Third place was taken by Dead Island, which is pretty impressive for a new franchise. Meanwhile, PS3-exclusive Resistance 3 had a good showing in the seventh spot; not bad for our game of the month for September. Here's the top 10 with no actual sales numbers as the NPD unhelpfully withholds those...

More Heroes), Yoot Saito (Dreamcast's Seaman), Matsuno himself, and Yoshiyuki

new Men in Black movie might be experiencing production problems (word
is the script needed mid-shoot rewrites, so you know it's good), but
that hasn't stopped Activision from assembling together a team of
highly-skilled agents to work on a game based on the franchise. Today,
the Call of Duty publisher revealed that they're putting together a Men
in Black game and aiming it for a Spring 2012 release date... as long as
the movie finishes in time. You know, if they're able to find funny
things for Will
Smith to say as he shoots aliens and talks to a dog...

What we've got here is a case of good news/bad news. First we got our hands on screens of the just announced PC version of Sonic Generations. Then Sega releases screens that show Sonic's flashy rival Silver the Hedgehog appears in Generations. We'll give you a moment think about which of those things is the bad news...
