    Glad to see you guys are back. It’s a shame that you missed E3 – I would’ve loved to hear your thoughts on that.

    I’m happy that Wreck it Ralph is getting a sequel, but I’m kind of annoyed that Sarah Silverman’s character is back. I found her nearly unbearable and her story was finished in the first movie.

    Sonic is one of the most well known gaming icons and I think he can make a comeback. I think the issue for him was the varying quality of games in the last decade. 2006 was horrible, Unleashed was OK and Generations was amazing – people just don’t know what to expect from a Sonic title. It takes a single good game for a mascot to get back into the spotlight – just look at Rayman Origins/Legends. There is definitely a market for those kind of games today and I do hope Sonic’s next game will be a good one.

      Yeah, we were bummed out about E3, but Adnan’s voice was pretty bad at that point and he needed to heal up.

      Great points on Sonic the Hedgehog! He totally has the opportunity for a come back, Sega just needs to figure out how to do it.
