Tree-t Yourself to This Week’s Sonic 4-2 Concept Art

This path has a branch! Branching paths confirmed!

Beleaf it or not, there’s some contraverstree over this piece of artwork. I’m stumped that someone would find this oakfensive, but they’ve really flipped their twig about it! Frankly, I think they’re barking up the wrong tree. They need to get to the root of the problem and tell Sega what kind of art they pine for. Maple they’ll listen. Don’t beat around the bush either or your efforts will be foilaged! Take a fern stance on the issue! No ifs, Ents or buts about it!

Read on to see a tree-o of platforms.

Curses! Foilage again! (On one platform anyway.)

Looks like the grass isn’t any greener on the other side of the page. While we get a nice trio of artwork, these platforms leave me flat and that’s the long and short of it. These platforms are leaving me stumped again….Time for more tree puns! No distreespect, but I wish those angered by Sega’s post wood get a leaf. The fact that folks are barking their opineion bitterly leaves me petrified. I’m just sick! Sycamore of it will happen again!  Alright, alright. I’ll pack my trunk and go.  Time for me to make like a tree…..and get outta here.

We have finished our....discussion. We have decided.........your puns.....are NOT funny.

  1. Haha, Jason, you silly billy, you! I bet you were thinking, “Yes! Concept art that doesn’t leave me stumped for puns!”

  2. Someone’s been starved of making bad puns.
    Now for actual discussion.
    I can imagine a stump being used as a cap for a Chemical Plant-style tube, and the platforms look nice (better than a hunk of ground floating around.

  3. Platforms again? Hoo boy… I guess they learned their lesson for spoiling Generations a lot, but this is ridiculous.

  4. Jason you have treely excelled yourself this time. Seriously its a very witty article. Its always easier when you have a good platform to work with. The end result paper for everyone.

  5. These level designs are beginning to look cLumbersome, but Sonic wood never be slowed down by that. It doesn’t matter how many paths Sonic takes, he’ll still kick Eggman’s grass.

    What can I say? These puns are addictive. That’s my platform on that.

  6. You should have been a co-writer for Batman & Robin and made Poison Ivy have a pun-off with Mr. Freeze

  7. That article took longer to read than most others -___-” I didn’t think it was possible to have too many tree puns.


  8. Pfft. Archie Sonic already covered those years ago: “I don’t want to go out on a limb but I wood like to get to the root of Sally’s problem! I’d be a sap if I decided to leaf! As forest that’s concerned, I’ll try to cedar things through fir sure! If knot, I’ll be pine-ing and weeping! I’d much rather take a bough! Oak-K?”
