Sonic Boom

Last year SEGA launched an ambitious new project related to one of its more popular characters, Sonic the Hedgehog, called Sonic Boom. The Sonic Boom project is a reboot of the Sonic the Hedgehog series, featuring new designs for all characters and a brand new setting. The project included a pair of video games released for Nintendo Wii U and 3DS as well as a TV Show produced by SEGA in collaboration with OuiDo! Productions and more. While the video games have failed to become as popular as SEGA expected, the TV Show has managed to become way more popular. All those who have enjoyed it will be happy to know that a second Sonic Boom season is currently in production.

The news has been confirmed during the Marché Internationale de Programmes Communications which has been held in Cannes, France by LER, the company which distributed the first Sonic Boom season. The company has confirmed that the Sonic Boom season two is currently in production by
OuiDo! Productions and SEGA. We have no idea on when it will air but it’s already been confirmed that broadcasting rights have been purchased by Discovery Kids and MEGAMAX / Minimax, for Italy and Eastern Europe, with talks currently underway for other territories. Also, talks are currently underway for a possible DVD / Blu-ray release.

As mentioned above, the Sonic Boom series also received two video games, released last year on Nintendo Wii U and 3DS. The Wii U title, called Sonic Boom Rise of Lyric, has been met with a very negative reception from critics due to the many glitches included in the game as well as for its bad camera system, controls and combat. The Wii U and 3DS games also failed to perform well on the market, with their combined sales making them the worst selling Sonic the Hedgehog games ever released.

Despite the games’ bad commercial results, another Sonic Boom title will be released in the future on Nintendo 3DS. Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice will be released sometime next year and it will play not too differently from the previous 3DS Sonic Boom game Shattered Crystal. The addition of the fire and ice elements will also spice up the experience considerably, with players having to use the elements to solve some simple puzzles and defeat enemies.

After about a month of work, a couple of Google employees have successfully hacked the PS Portal, PlayStation’s handheld streaming solution. Their project is not set for public release anytime soon, but the hack is purely software-based, eliminating the need for hardware exploitation.

Andy Nguyen, a cloud vulnerability researcher, and Calle Svensson, a security engineer, shared their latest project on Twitter. They successfully ran the PSP emulator PPSSPP on the PS Portal. They presented the 2005 PSP classic Grand Theft Auto: Liberty Stories.

As a wireless streaming device, the idea of playing games on the PS Portal without a PS5 providing the power was considered impossible. It’s quite surprising how quickly Nguyen and Svensson have overcome this initial hurdle. It remains to be seen where their efforts will take them, but we will definitely keep an eye on their progress. Nguyen expressed that there is still a lot of work left to do.

Lady Gaga, also known as Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, has teased an upcoming collaboration with Fortnite Festival set to be unveiled soon. More pertinent to our specific attention to detail, Gaga has also admitted to a mistake made around four years ago, indicating her keen awareness of the franchise’s significant value.

Gaga shared a mesmerizing picture of her character in Fortnite and also retweeted a post from 2019 where she asked her fans, “What’s fortnight?”. She finally got the chance to correctly spell the title of the game, allowing us to breathe a sigh of relief after waiting anxiously.

Lady Gaga will be teaming up with other top celebrities to maximize their presence on the Fortnite platform. Travis Scott once hosted a live concert in Battle Royale a couple of years ago, while the Weeknd just premiered the music video for the song “Popular” at the Fortnite Festival.

Reflecting on Street Fighter 5’s tumultuous launch, Capcom looks back eight years later

For those who may not recall, nearly eight years ago today, Street Fighter 5 was released in 2016 in a rather incomplete state. The content available was impressive initially, but the limited number of characters and lack of single-player game modes stood out. Capcom expresses regret for the entire situation, offering apologies years later for having “betrayed” players’ expectations.

On SF5’s eighth anniversary, the developers must be feeling nostalgic. They recently posted a Japanese-language tweet looking back on the mistakes made and the challenges that were eventually overcome. The number of playable characters has grown to 45, and the game has seen various enhancements, including the introduction of new abilities such as V Skills/Trigger II and V Shift. Even now, hundreds of thousands of players still choose to play this game instead of the newer Street Fighter 6.
Have you had the chance to try out Street Fighter 5 since it was first released? What do you recall about the game’s reception? Take a trip down memory lane in the comments section below.
