Sega and BioWare are currently running a competition that allows fans to vote on the name for the mysterious new alien race that will feature in the DS title, Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood.
EDIT: At time of press, thecompetition websiteis down. But if it were working (keep checking back), the following rant would be relevant:
You can select one of the nine possibilities listed on the website. To make your decision more than merely picking your favourite featured made-up name, there's a picture of one of the never-before seen aliens on the site too.
Looking at the alien and dropping into speculation for moment, it appears that Sonic will be battling a Chaos-Emerald infused group of Golems about five times the size of the spiky blue hedgehog.
Personally, it looks a little bit too Dungeons and Dragons for our liking (it's as if the developer had some connection to D%26amp;D, somehow) and severely missing the mechbot feel of the original games.
If Caterkiller's and Batbot's aren't featured in the game, we're not going to be happy.
