The New Sonic the Hedgehog Redesign is Here!

The world came together in one voice this summer, declaring that the Sonic the Hedgehog movie design was hideous and everything wrong with the world. Welp, the movie studio went back to the drawing board and have returned a redesigned hedgehog that looks more like the video game.

The design is better. The movie still looks really dumb.

Someday I hope we get the Citizen Kane of cartoon animal meets real people movies. This looks like the next installment of the Chipmunk movies. But God help me, I’m probably still gonna see it.

Sonic the Hedgehog comes out on Feb. 14.

The Only Thing to Bring Me Back to World of Warcraft Will be Ogres

The newest expansion of World of Warcraft has been announced and ogres are not yet a playable race. I’m sure Shadowlands will be awesome, but I’m holing out for ogres.

With this new expansion, I’m about to be three expansions behind on what used to be my favorite video game. I loved World of Warcraft, and I still probably do. But it’s not a game for me anymore. I was never interested in the post-game stuff. I just want to explore the world and play a good story. But I just don’t have much interest in the overall game anymore.

I want ogres. And maybe bards.

Diablo 4 Is On Its Way!

We all love video games. I know I do. And so another long-lasting, ever popular franchise will be back for another installment. Blizzard — which is facing all sorts of trouble this year — has announced Diablo 4!

They did so with this long, fancy, cinematic trailer.

I’ve been a Diablo fan since the beginning. And even though I’m just as bothered as anybody else with Blizzard’s China connections as of late, I’m still quite excited to play such a game as Diablo 4.

They also released a gameplay trailer and announced the first three classes: barbarian, druid and sorceress.

The game looks like a Diablo game, alright. Though I’m a little disappointed that it’s just going to be another medieval adventure. Why not pick a new era? Maybe pirate era Diablo? Or modern day? That would be fun! Maybe make Diablo the hero this time against a corrupt Heaven?

Just spitballing here. No release date yet.

Death Stranding Looks Weird as Heck; Avengers Looks Better

A couple new video game trailers came out yesterday for some very anticipated games.

First up is Death Stranding, Hideo Kojima’s new masterpiece that just looks weird as heck! I think you play a delivery man trying to remake America?

Honestly, I don’t want to look up any details about Death Stranding. This looks weird as heck and I don’t want to know anything about it before playing. Though I’ll probably wait and see what the reviews say, see if this is any good. I’m a big Metal Gear Solid fan, so I’m hopeful.

Meanwhile, the Avengers video game put out a new trailer that actually explains what this game is going to be. And it looks a little better than all of the fancy story trailers we’ve already seen.

I’m still not confident that this is going to be more than an on-rails punch’em up, but we’ll see. I’m definitely interested in a big, full scale Avengers game, especially playing as Kamala Khan.

So we’ll see what the future of video games hold!

Kamala Khan is Definitely Going to Star in the Avengers Video Game

We guessed this when the first trailers came out, but the upcoming Avengers video game is going to star Kamala Khan! That’s great! Though this first footage of her gameplay still makes me think this game is going to be totally on rails.

The cut scene animations, story and character acting all seem great, though. As excited as I am for a good Avengers game, especially one starring Ms. Marvel, I’m probably going to wait for the reviews on this one. This game could have all the polish in the world, but still be boring if you’re just doing what the game tells you to do at all times.

We’ll see. The Avengers game comes out on May 15.
