ShockCast Ep. 148 – “Sonic the Derphog”
Don’t let the title fool you, I want nothing but the best for the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. It seems that these days he can’t win; Sonic Team doesn’t seem to know what to do with him, and the fans don’t seem to know what they want from him.
We started off this week’s show by talking about the recent Driveclub delay (8:02) and its potential impacts, which was followed up by our second discussion in two weeks regarding David Cage and the way his games are characterized by the media and gamers (23:20). Finally, we talked about what the title of this podcast alludes to: the curious case of the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise (34:17).
This week I was joined by Jorge Jimenez (Staff Writer) and Ryan Meitzler (Staff Writer). Many thanks to El Blanco Niño for our custom intro and outro, and CampSonic.com for the featured image.
