Since ragging on anything Sonic-related is a favorite past-time these days, the creators of “Sonic Boom”, the reboot of the Blue Blur’s franchise, decided to put up a video so they can explain the sports tapes and why Knuckles look like he skipped on leg days at the gym. Now if you snarky internet types can shut your yap for nine minutes and thirty seven seconds during the viewing that’ll be greaaaaat.
That’s, well…that’s a surprisingly well-reasoned design choices, actually. These guys are a rough-n-tumble bunch, so of course sports tape would become a necessity. And since nobody complained when Nathan Drake started to inexplicably sport a neckerchief in Uncharted 3, then I don’t see why anyone should complain that Sonic is now wearing it to emphasize his GODDAMN JOB as a goddamn ADVENTURER!
But, as always, I want to fit in with the cool kids of the internet, so allow me to put on my best scowl and join you. Ahem! “Boo! Hiss! Sonic is shit! Go die, Sega!”
There! Am I cool yet, fuckers?
