Yeah! It's something with the dress. I think there is something wrong with her eyes as well though. They make her look kinda... drunk?

Also, anyone care to explain why everyone else gets the "awesome bandages" look, but Amy still manages to keep her jewelry? Are they magic bracelets or something. (Disclaimer: I don't know a whole lot about Sonic, so please forgive me if it's explained somewhere)
Oh yeah... she's got one eye open, and one eye half-closed... that's not a facial expression most living things can hold.

The bracelets are tied in with why she's the only one in any notable amount of clothing- dress+jewelry= visual shorthand for being The Girl. *shrugs*


The end is nigh.

Sonic Boom, Sega's Upcoming Wii U/3DS Sonic Title, Revealed

Looks like Knuckles has been skipping leg day.

Sega has just spilled the beans on 2014's upcoming Sonic title for Wii U and 3DS. It's called Sonic Boom, and it won't feature Street Fighter's Guile in any shape or form. It is being developed by Big Red Button, though, which was formed from members of the old Naughty Dog team that worked on both Jak and Daxter and Ratchet and Clank. Check out the dubstep-laden trailer to the right.

From the looks of things, it appears to be a 3D Sonic title, rather than a traditional Sonic sidescroller. It also looks like we may have 4-player co-op, with the four most recognizable Sonic characters, Sonic, Tails, Kunckles, and Amy, all being heavily featured in the trailer and shown to have their own unique in-game abilities (Ima firin' mah lazor!)

But most interesting of all is the "edgy" new remake the old Sonic cast has had. Knuckles, in particular, looks like some kind of steroid monster, though it seems he's been neglecting leg day at the gym. Oh, and bandages. For a closer look, check out the official character art Sega posted to its Facebook wall [] below:

So what do you think? Honestly, Sonic is kind of at the point where there have been so many terrible games in the franchise, that anything that isn't complete rubbish would impress me. However, the team working on this means it may be worth keeping an eye on.

Sonic Boom will release on the Wii U and 3DS in 2014.

Kunckles? lol!

But seriously, it's not the worst looking thing ever. I really don't get why they've made Knuckles look like that though.
