Bioware likes em Fast, Blue, and Furry.

It’s been confirmed, Bioware will be working with SEGA to create a Sonice teh Hedgehog RPG for the DS, and I am officialy wary.

I love Bioware, and have great respect for their RPG making skillz since playing through and enjoying every second of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. Sonic was fun in its day, especially on the genesis, and while he’s not as viable or marketable a character as Mario, he’s still a gaming icon, however tarnished his status may be after the last few games he’s been in.

But a Sonic RPG? I dunno. I enjoyed Super Mario RPG for the SNES immensely and quite unexpectedly, but I have a feeling the “lore” of sonic doesn’t stretch far enough to make for an interesting RPG. Of course there were those horrible (HORRIBLE!) Sonic comics and cartoon(somebody check me on this) that came out in the late 90s or so that could provide ample fodder for Bioware’s writers to cobble together a half decent story out of it, but I’m not getting my hopes up.

    About the Sonic Cartoon…Sonic should never speak. Tails is a lesbian.

    I agree 100%: The reason Sonic will never work for an RPG is his voice!
