Gaming icons continue to make their way over to the cinema side of the entertainment medium, and the latest crossover tease comes in the form of Sega’s Blue Blur. Sonic the Hedgehog looks to take on the live-action scene, and regarding what exactly the speedy, chili dog-loving rodent will look like in the upcoming movie is a big question from the demanding fan base.

A new motion movie poster has recently been revealed and we get a subtle glimpse of what to expect from the realistic take on the gaming hedgehog. Director Tim Miller (Deadpool) and producer Neal Moritz (The Fast and The Furious series) have collaborated on bringing new life to the movie side of Sonic the Hedgehog.

In the poster we can see that Sonic is covered in fur, sports a new style of sneaker and comes off as the size of an average human while still retaining specific qualities of the gaming hedgehog we all know and love. As he speeds across the screen players get a hint of what to expect in terms of his quickness in relation to the real world, as well as collects a few rings – something that’s a main feature in the games.

Actor/comedian Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation, House of Lies) created a perfect persona of Sonic in the test video for the live action movie, in turn, netting him the role of permanently voicing the speedy hedgehog. And as for who will be playing Sonic’s arch rival, why, none other than Jim Carrey, of course. These two paired together in an iconic gaming series brought to the big screen in a big way is sure to be flooded with comedic instances – intentional or not.

There’s yet to be any reveal if Sonic’s other mates throughout his long career of video games, such as the two-tailed fox, Tails, or the Echidna, Knuckles, will make their way into the realistic movie.

The live-action rendition of Sonic the Hedgehog is slated to release on November 8, 2019 in the US, November 28, 2019 in Australia, and December 26, 2019 in the UK.

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Raiden, the famous shmup series, will come back as a twin-stick shooter on PS5, PS4, and PC

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.
