    Some companies are trying to do their own CoD game, if true then Sega looks at another Activision franchise instead, could work out very well with the kids.

    Not sure what to think of this. I loved Sonic Colors (Wii version) and Sonic Generations was great too plus Sonic 4 Part 2 looks to be going in the right direction...but is this even needed for the franchise or is this purely just to cash in?

    Thoughts, does Sonic need rebooting and would this be a great way to go?

    Lol I'm actually hoping that it will be true. Because, let's be honest. The series has gotten so RIDICULOUS over the last few years.

    WOW I thought Sonic Generations was a revival of the Sonic series. I guess Sega has deicded to put their pet Hedgehog down.

    R.I.P Sonic the Hedgehog 1991-2012

    But they kinda started picking up their shit and getting it together with Sonic Colors and Sonic Generations. This would just kinda throw that shit into the fan.

    Oh yeah, definitely. I mean, Colours and Generations, the last two games, surely weren't well-recieved both by the press and by gamers. In fact, the tide started turning around the time of Unleashed, when they messed up only 50% of levels.

    LOL That's not going to help the series at all. The last few Sonic games had shitty gamplay. Fix the gamplay. Fix the series.


    EDIT: Oh shit. I just thought of Crash Bandicoot again. Remember that unnecessary reboot?

    I'm sorry, but you have to accept the fact that not everyone likes to have their pipes cleaned by an overweigh italian plumber with a taste for magic shrooms.

    lol It's not only gameplay mechanics and lol I know Colors and Generations were well received. Heck I loved them too. But the series has been hurt a lot, so I'm thinking that this will be interesting. Who knows?

    Lol you're like me. I liked it when there was Sonic, Metal Sonic, Robotnik, Tails and Knuckles, After that they added a new cast, Shadow, Rouge and the like. And they were interesting. After that, Sega said, LET'S MAKE MOAR ANIMAL FRIENDS And they did, most of them are ridiculous. BIG THE CAT??? WTH??? (I said most, there are a few exceptions) I swear I can't count the numbers of characters they added. -_-

    What's Mario have to do with the decline of the Sonic the Hedgehog series, Foxi? Or do we just take a shameless plug at Valwin every single time he posts regardless of the content

    Archie comics already saw the universe being rewrite by Eggman ( whom is robotic-ized dr. robotnik from another timeline who's soul has been downloaded in the robotized and souless body of their world's robotnik) and everyone without their memories. Effectly semi-rebooting the comics.

    Archie Sonic and SEGA Sonic universes are parallel, they have little in common.
