Have you ever been so hopelessly deluded that you actually remain delusional even after becoming aware of your own delusions?
This describes the majority of Sonic the Hedgehog fans.
Luckily (maybe), the next Sonic game, Sonic Lost World, looks quite good. Better still, we now have a release date: the Wii U and 3DS versions will hit October 22nd.
Lost World borrows heavily from the Super Mario Galaxy series, and looks to integrate a new formula of 3D Sonic play. And quite frankly, it looks quite promising. Then again, every Sonic the Hedgehog game in recent memory looked quite promising to begin with, but the majority proved to be so bad that their only real use was as case studies for Stockholm syndrome.
SEGA, please don’t botch this one.
