TSSZ: Vertical Slice - Doom, Gloom and Sonic Boom

TSSZ's controversial column is back, and this time I'm ... kinda, sorta agreeing with Sonic fans about Sonic Boom...?

Check out the new article, Vertical Slice - Doom, Gloom and Sonic Boom, and have a read of the excerpt below:

But lets say Sonic Boom somehow becomes profitable over the Christmas period and Sega of America decides to greenlight future seasons of the TV show. It’ll only result in more half-baked tie-in videogames. After all, if the creative mind behind Crash Bandicoot and Jak & Daxter couldn't work with whatever resources Sega provided, who can?

The alternative is that the entire Sonic Boom franchise flops, in which case I suspect Sega Sammy will considerably downsize Sega of America. I mean, it’s not like Sega of America has actually done much recently aside from Sonic Boom.

That and battling Gearbox in court over Aliens: Colonial Marines
