    Sega announced that they are going to shut down thier mobile Game "Sonic Runners" in late July. They didn't give a real explanation, but they thanked all the players for trying it out. Sonic Runners was a commercial failure for Sega and they had higher expectations for the Game and they hoped they could deliver a better experience with the Game. Because of the end of the Game, Sega announced in-game sales this week.

    How was your experience with Sonic Runners? Did you even play it? I would love to know

    Really? I thought it was really fun :P Plus it had a really good soundtrack. I didn't play it so much because it needed an active Internet connection, and I hate games that do that

    somewhere
    The word "cringe" has become so cringey recently. It's an overused word that has lost its meaning.

    Probably because it made class comparatively fun.

    It was just a copy of other games. I enjoyed it though, I don't know what's "cringe" about it.

    It's one of the first things you see when you start the game
