yeah, it's another filler. I wish I could have another proper update before the month is out, but frankly I'm stumped. I'm facing the real end of the first major adventure arc and I'm not entirely sure where to go from here. What world will we visit? How will the characters continue to develop? Frankly I'm a bit at a loss about what I'm going to DO. But Don't worry, I'll figure something out! Now, on to the comic!

Okay, I gotta admit, this comic is a manifestation of my nerd rage, but I always try to channel that kind of thing in a positive way. How can Sonic's 20th anniversary game not get a wii port?! Don't give me the hedgehog engine crap because a very minor graphical downgrade would allow it to run just fine, like Sonic Colors did. Think of this, there have been 11 Sonic games made exclusive for nintendo consoles (not counting re-releases of old games) which include pretty much all of the best reviewed and received. In that time there have been 4 games NOT made for nintendo consoles, the most prominent example being the now infamous "Sonic '06" which was made for Sonic's 15th anniversary. I can't believe Sonic Team would repeat that mistake from 5 years ago. I'm sure generations will be an awesome game, but people who own XBox's and PS3's probably won't be interested in it because they'll have memories of '06 and no particular attachment to Sonic, since it's not an FPS or gritty sandbox crime game. Wow this sounds so much like a fanboy rant, but is it so much to ask that I can count on a series to have all of it's games come out on one console, or at least be TRULY multi-platform?

Edit: If you own more than one console, that's awesome, but a lot of people can't really afford to do that. Also, I know there are always exceptions, and there are PS3/360 owners who love platformers and mascot titles as much as any Sonic fan, but statistically speaking FPS games are the most popular on the 360, and sandboxes are most popular on the PS3. (games like little big planet and Ratchet and Clank are exceptions to this rule, but are more niche on that system.)

I think it's to make up for Sonic Colors being exclusive to the Wii. Of course, I have a Wii and 360 so I can get either version.

Though this reason is frikkin funny.

@Angel I own a PS3, and I don't really have any FPS's, and call me weird, but I actually liked '06. Besides, I've always liked Sonic games and Generations looks like it will be awesome, so don't say PS3 and XBox owners won't care. However, I understand where you're coming from. This looks like it's about the same graphical quality as Unleashed, and that got a Wii port, so I agree that there isn't very much reason to keep Generations off of the Wii.

Mario: "Well get him back here! We've got a plane to London leaving in five minutes!"

I have to admit, this was pretty clever.

dude, I'm a massive sonic fan and I own an Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360 and PS3. you shouldn't say that everyone who owns an Xbox or PS3 likes only FPS and Sandbox crime games. You should of put most people who own and Xbox or PS3 like FPS and Sandox Crime Games. Don't get me wrong I enjoy a good FPS every now and then if one of my friends offer but generally I play video games that involve Mario, Sonic or Zelda. I don't want to sound like a dick but I took real offense being a massive gamer and you saying that just because I own a console it defines my personality as a douche bag FPS gamer who thinks Modern Warfare 2 is the greatest thing since Sliced bread. anyway sorry about the rant

well, I happen to know a lot of people who think that COD IS the best thing since sliced bread and refuse to own a nintendo console, though that doesn't mean that all non-ninty owners who own a console are of that category, it's just the majority. And he did say in his commetn that it's not ALL of them, just most of them. And I am in the same position (Only own a Wii, and getting enough money for another console is practically impossible) and am also outraged at this. Although maybe, if there's enough support for it, generations will get a port for Wii or it's succesor that is apparently coming in 2012.


Also, I'm back to reading this comic. No-one cares. Woo.

Until I heard about Generations, I didn't know there were 2 Sonics. I just thought Sonic grew and lost a few pounds.

Personally, I love platform games. I sadly had to sell my Wii in order to get my shiny new xbox360, but Ive always been a little picky with graphics (and yet I LOVE oldschool games too) and Sonic Generations looks AMAZING on 360.

Never played Colors, but I heard it was good. Loved Sonic Generations (a few nitpicks here and there, but hey it happens). I think they did a great job and the soundtrack was AMAZING! (The Chemical Plant remix was my fav).

Nerd rage all you want, its what makes us true gamers ;)

@Proto165: my personal favorite was the city escape remix. I played the PS3 version myself, and though the graphics were amazing I didn't think they were that much better just because they were in HD.
