Earlier today, Sega revealed Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice, the 3DS sequel to Sonic Boom from last year. To say that Boom wasn’t received well would be putting it lightly, and the Sonic franchise in general hasn’t exactly won over fans since the time of Sonic Heroes (or depending on who you ask, Sonic Colors). So, as anyone with a brain could reasonably expect…
People weren’t happy.
OH GOOD ANOTHER SONIC BOOM GAME JUST WHAT WE WANTED

I can just imagine how it came to be..
"Ok so sonic boom has the poorest sales and ratings of any sonic game… I KNOW LET'S MAKE A SEQUEL."

I think “relevant” and “Sonic” don’t compute. Like, at all. Ever.
Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice?! EVERYONE! Queue up your "Too Much Water" jokes! They're relevant again! THIS IS NOT A DRILL!

Most positive reception anyone’s given to Sonic in years.
>My dog threw up in my bed right after the Sonic Boom game was announced.
If that's not a sign, I don't know what is.

The internet to Sonic right now.
Well, there you have it, people. Everyone is so sick of Sonic’s shit. Just…absolutely done. Bravo, Sega, you’ve done so well in making people hate Sonic.
