Deep Silver Releases New Mighty No. 9 Trailer

Category: Uncategorized

After several delays, less-than-satisfactory communication with their community and underwhelming fan response towards preview builds, Mighty No. 9 is not exactly in a great place among the gaming populous and the latest trailer put out by Deep Silver certainly does not do it any favors.

The video is being met with strong disapproval on YouTube. As of the time of this post, there are nearly 10 times more dislikes than likes on the trailer. Many have also taken to the comment section to strongly criticize the video’s cringeworthy dialog and take jabs at the game’s turbulent development and Kickstarter campaign.

It is a sad thing to see for a game that showed so much promise and potential when it was first pitched. It will be interesting to see how the game’s sales fare when it launches for PC and consoles on June 21.

Official Sonic Social Media Accounts Hinting at New Game in Development

Category: Uncategorized

Sonic Tease 5-23-2016

The official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr accounts all posted the above image yesterday with the sentence, “We solemnly swear we’re up to something good.”

While the image of Sonic reading up on “how to meme” is amusing enough as it is, it is the “What I actually do” picture that is intriguing the hedgehog’s social media followers because it sounds like SEGA is getting ready to officially announce that there is a new Sonic game in the works.

The tags used on Tumblr further suggest a new entry and hint that we may have already gotten a look at this new project.
