Together we will show the world what we can’t do! You are stuck with me and I’m stuck with you! Pushing on through until the deed is done! No one’s gonna give nothing to us! In each other we have no trust! Standing divided, after this farce!

Over the past week Sonic Forces came out, and the general reception of the game has been… pretty darn poor to be honest. From criticisms levied towards the barren level design, a story that does not properly take advantage of its premise and characters, and various underlying gameplay/technical issues that make the game less refined than Sonic Generations, which came out six years ago.

So I got the game whenever I did, including the limited edition Shadow The Hedgehog beanie. A collectible that I eventually threw away, but remembered well enough to reference it in a story of mine… because I think that the fact Sega sold this game with a beanie is funny. Continue reading
