Sonic Colors is for kids, Sonic The Hedgehog 4 is not
Sonic Colors has been impressing long time Sonic fans since it was announced, mostly because it doesn’t look half bad so far. Sonic fans may be happy about it, but according to Sega’s own Mike Hayes, they shouldn’t be.
“We’ve got to make games that appeal to the 7-to-12-year-old which is exactly what Colors will do, and then we need to appeal to the core gamer, which is what Sonic 4 is doing.”
Considering kids don’t really enjoy playing games openly aimed at them, Sega’s decision to state this seems questionable. Let’s just hope it’s a good game, aimed at kids or not.
Is it game over for Hironobu Sakaguchi?
The Last Story is an original Wii RPG that is shaping up quite nicely. According to a blog post from Hironobu Sakaguchi, the title of the game may prove more revealing than creative.
“I’m pouring everything into this one title. The feeling of it perhaps being my last title is strong. The development staff and I are putting 120% of our energy into this title.”
It’s exciting to know so much effort is being put in The Last Story, but hopefully this doesn’t mean the father of Final Fantasy is retiring anytime soon.
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword aiming for early 2011
If you can hardly wait to play Link’s newest adventure, you’re probably not going to like this.

Early 2011 – that is what we’re aiming for.” In the meantime, we can speculate about how awesome it will be.
