Sega May Reboot Sonic The Hedgehog, Copy Skylanders
First Look At Darker, M-Rated Super Mario Bros.

Weekly Poll: Hedgelanders

Weekly Poll for 3-26-2012Most of you out there haven't played Thatgamecompany's Journey for the Sony PlayStation 3.  Personally, I think you are better off that way.  As I explained (and defended!) on Episode 78 of Power Button, I did not enjoy Journey.  My girlfriend and I tackled it on a recent Saturday night and came away confused and confounded by what we'd experienced, although in the end we agreed that it is not a game for us.  Listen to the podcast to hear all of the details.  I'm glad that those of you who enjoyed it truly had a fun time with it, but I think I'm going to bow out of Thatgamecompany creations in the future.  I've yet to play one of their games and come away from it satisfied.

Moving on, there's a rumor floating around that Sega wants to reboot its Sonic the Hedgehog brand to copy the business plan behind Activision's Skylanders franchise with an open world mission-based design.  Does this interest you?  Would you want to buy Sonic toys that connect with the new game?  Or is this where you bow out of the blue blur's adventures?  Let's hear your thoughts.
