Game Review

Video games that react to your personal music collection are nothing new. In fact, these types of games have been around for years. Rush Bros. attempts to dish out its own music-based experience, mixing your custom tracks with 2D platforming gameplay. It's definitely a nice idea, and it's something that will likely appeal to music lovers who also have an affinity for 2D action games.... Read Review

Media: Let's Play - Batman: Arkham Asylum

Let's suppose that you don't have Batman: Arkham Asylum yet. Perhaps you just haven't been convinced by the trailers released by Eidos and Warner Bros. Perhaps the demo was inadequate for your need to get a good feel for what the game is like. Perhaps what you would like is the simple opportunity to just sit down and watch the game being played until you can finally say "that's it; I know this game is for me" and rush right out to the store and get a disc full of Bat. Perhaps, in just such a situation, you are in luck. Kombo reader "The Sound Defense" has provided us with a link to a "Let's Play" series of videos for Batman: Arkham Asylum which he began on Saturday, three days before the game's official release. Behold the benefits of working in game retail: The above is, of course, only the first part. Presently, there are 35 more, which you can check out as you please in Sound's YouTube account.

Sign of the Endtimes: Nintendo Publishes a Sonic Title

When I was a lad of about 14 years of age, there were a number of things I thought I might never see. One was SEGA publishing games on a Nintendo platform. But that happened in 2002 with the GameCube and Game Boy Advance, and more or less set the pace for what would come later. I never thought I would see Mario and Sonic star together in a game. But that happened in 2007 with Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games. Read More


SEGA: "One Sonic Game Cannot Appease All Fans"

"You can't please everyone." An old saying that holds true, especially when you're trying to appease Sonic the Hedgehog fans. And it seems that SEGA is coming to realize this. "If you read everything, we need to be all things to all gamers with Sonic, and that's a difficult thing to do," said the head if SEGA of Europe and SEGA of America, Mike Hayes. "Trying to put everything into one game and making everybody happy is impossible. And I think that's something clear going forward." And as a result, it seems that SEGA is content to please either one group of Sonic fans (the younger ones), or another (those who grew up with him). But apparently, they don't expect the two to overlap very much. Read More


SEGA Says Quality of Sonic Titles Will "Be Fixed Over Time"

Just as he had in his golden years across many a field and mountain, Sonic has found himself running downhill at a steady pace in recent years. Only instead of him actually running down the slopes and corkscrews of his world, it was his games that were going downhill. This arguably peaked in 2006, when the would-be series reboot Sonic the Hedgehog was released. Characters with awkward proportions, a complicated storyline featuring romance between a human princess and the blue blur himself, and worst of all, frustrating gameplay did little to gain the favor of anyone but the hardest of hardcore fans. Of this period in time, Sean Ratcliffe, VP of Marketing for SEGA of America, admit to GameDaily that at the time, the criticism was "warranted," but that SEGA was concerned, spending "a lot of time and effort...discussing how we develop Sonic." Then came Sonic Unleashed. Read More
