New Classic Sonic Footage from Sonic Forces

A showcase of the second gameplay style.

SEGA has just released new footage of their upcoming multi-platform game Sonic Forces. It features the returning character Classic Sonic racing through Green Hill Zone, except the stage bears some new aesthetics. The sparkling water has been replaced with flowing falls of sand and the badniks have received some futuristic upgrades.

Classic Sonic retains his spin dash, as usual, and appears to play exactly like his incarnation from 2011’s Sonic Generations. Classic Sonic will be one of the three gameplay styles offered in Sonic Team’s high speed platformer. The other two styles will be playable through Modern Sonic and an unannounced third character. SEGA has stated that this mystery character will be unveiled at E3 2017.

The video comes from the Sonic The Hedgehog Official Youtube Channel.

Sonic Forces releases for Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, and PC during Holiday 2017. Will you be picking it up when it hits shelves? Let us know in the comments!

Pre-Black Friday Deals from Gamestop: Get $50 Off 1TB Xbox One S

Early deals for gamers.

Before Black Friday hits on Friday, November 25, Gamestop has announced that they will have some tempting Pre-Black Friday deals that will be available on November 22-23. Which means that they start today.

To start the event off, Gamestop has shaved off a good $50 off the 1TB Xbox One S system, as well as $20 off the Samsung Gear VR. This brings the 1TB Xbox One S to $250 and the Samsung Gear VR to $80. If you’re the owner of a samsung phone and looking for a cheap entry into the world of VR, this is your chance.

During the event, anyone can enjoy 50% extra credit when trading in items. Gamestop also included that anyone is eligible for “Free Value Shipping” on orders over $35. One would assume that this would be for online orders.

These, among others, are the Pre-Black Friday deals which start today. Make sure you catch them while they’re out. Gamestop’s actual Black Friday deals start November 25 and include many of these deals above, including Overwatch for $35 and the Xbox One S for $250 (you can also nab a PS4 for the same price). On Friday, Gamstop will also be offering a Buy Two Get One Free for all pre-ownded products. On the subject of trade credit, you will still get extra, but only 20% more instead of 50%.

For more about Gamestop, they recently announced earlier in the year that they will accept retro trade-ins and will sell them online. Be sure to visit Cube Command for more gaming news!

Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Update

As of November 2016, the Xbox One can now play Skate 3, a skating simulator, and Scary Girls, an adventure-platformer. Alongside those titles, the Xbox One can also play Guardian Heroes, a side-scrolling beat ’em up from 1996 and OFP: Red River, a first-person shooter. It should be noted that these games are only able to be played on the Xbox One if they are the physical disc versions.

These are Xbox 360 titles that Microsoft has given Xbox One support to. They join a long list of games that is expanded continuously. You can find the full list here, on Cube Command.

Microsoft has confirmed that more games, including three Bioshock games (Bioshock, Bioshock 2 and Bioshock Infinite) are on their way to the Xbox One. Are there any titles that you would like to see added to the future? Let us know in the comments below!
