The Internet Reacts To Sonic The Hedgehog Movie Posters

Sonic the Hedgehog as a movie was always a collar-tugging proposition, but a recent movie poster teaser has gotten a lot of people scratching their heads. Even former Sonic the Hedgehog developers are having trouble understanding what is going on here. So of course, when something that strange comes about, the internet as a whole goes crazy, and that produces some of the best stuff the internet can put out.

We've gathered some of the best (and, uh, hopefully safest) Sonic the Hedgehog movie...let's call it fan art and reactions. Feast your eyes on what people think Sonic will look like in his film debut and how they feel about it. Keep in mind, he's still a very naked and seemingly muscular humanoid hedgehog, so while we've tried to keep out anything too bad, don't be shocked if your boss has some words for you if you're laughing along at work.

if that's the front of sonic then is this what his back looks like? pic.twitter.com/SIlAqbnQpf

Rethinking Wastelands: How Avalanche Brought Color And Insanity To Rage 2

Rage 2 debuted with a bombastic trailer full of neon color splashes. It was a sign Rage 2 would not look like the first Rage, which was defined by brown horizons.

Avalanche aims to create a variety of visual variations across Rage 2’s world, and that process starts with art concepts. We sat down with Rage 2’s art director Jeremy Miller, who detailed the process for creating Rage 2’s world and why he thinks it has an insanity problem.

“A core part of the Rage world is wasteland cyberpunk. It’s not the cyberpunk world where you go into a desert, it is a post, post-apocalyptic world with a wasteland that is sometimes lush that also has a strong cyberpunk layer.

What You Should Know About The Keyblade Wielders Before Playing Kingdom Hearts III

What You Should Know About The Keyblade Wielders Before Playing Kingdom Hearts III

Square Enix has unveiled the first of three planned trailers before Kingdom Hearts III’s launch next month. The video showcased an exhilarating and action-packed, though exceedingly brief, overview of the major characters and their journeys in the series so far. The trailer was more of a stylish refresher than a useful lore guide, and the montage didn’t illuminate the characters’ stories for those not already in the know – which is why we decided to help.

At its core, Kingdom Hearts is a series of games about the champions of light fighting the forces of darkness with magical key-shaped weapons, and how that clash tests even the strongest bonds of friendship. Though its story has an intimidating reputation for being complicated – aided by the fact that several vital games in the series were released on various consoles – newcomers, or those who didn’t play all the games, shouldn’t worry about jumping into Kingdom Heart III. To catch everyone up, we created a guide to help untangle the intricate web of lore surrounding the heroes and their journeys.

Who They Are Ventus, Terra, and Aqua debuted in Birth by Sleep, a prequel to the events of the first Kingdom Hearts. The story centers on the three keyblade masters-in-training whose friendship is tested when Xehanort – the main antagonist in the Kingdom Hearts universe – sets a plan in motion to gain power.

8 Dream Characters We’d Like To See As Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC

8 Dream Characters We’d Like To See As Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC

With Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s base roster cemented, players can now set their sights on the all-important question: Who’s being made available via DLC? Primary among the many completely justified complaints is the glaring omission of Waluigi and a surprising lack of Toad. Persona’s Joker was recently added to the list opening the floodgates for all sorts of third-party characters, so we must ask, why is Ronald McDonald still not on the roster?

In Smash Bros. we all play to win. So does D.Va. The former gamer-turned-mech pilot would make a great addition to the brawler with her high-powered Tokki robo-suit. In fact, with her already-equipped booster ability, matrix shield (block), and self-destruct (which could be a final smash) the South Korean megastar is primed and ready to enter the fray.

With a handy pickaxe, arsenal of guns, and umbrella, Fortnite characters already have much of what a Smash character needs in a recover move, ranged attack, and close-quarters combo. For an ultimate smash, what about a dance emote that sends players soaring off the map from its sheer brilliance? No? Moving on…

Vote For Your 2018 Games Of The Year

Now is your chance to sound off on your favorite games of 2018. Do your part and vote to make sure your favorite games make our Reader Games of the Year section in the February 2019 issue of the magazine.

Between Nintendo releasing a new console with Mario and Zelda games and the introduction of the Battle Royale genre, we really thought 2017 was a tough year – but the competition is just as fierce this year, and maybe even more so. Cast your vote in assorted categories (including Game of the Year) to help us show what you think was the best.

You may notice that some seemingly obvious picks aren't on the list. That could be because of our eligibility requirements. Remasters and remakes are restricted to that category. Also, if a game is episodic, but the final episode didn't releasing in 2018, that keeps it off our list for this year.
