You know, there’s only so many times you can report stuff like this before you really have to say out loud “What is going on with Boom?”
This week is EGX in London. EGX is basically what used to be the EuroGamer Expo, it’s one of the largest video game conventions in Europe and is the largest gaming expo in the UK. And the biggest games are all there. Smash Bros, BloodBorne, DriveClub, Alien Isolation, Assassins Creed *insert a random word here* etc.
So it makes you wonder why Sega have not brought Sonic Boom on either the 3DS or Wii U to it right? The game is out in November, but there’s no mention of it at all on the Sega Blog, and in this video shot at EGX by Sega Europes ‘Sega Central’ team. Sonic Boom is not only not shown, it’s not even mentioned in the video in anyway.
But wait… Sonic Boom IS there! Sonic Boom is at EGX and you can play it in a public demo on both the Wii U and 3DS. Several people have posted their thoughts about it on both twitter and youtube and we even have video footage which shows it at EGX in the public space.
Even our friends at SegaDriven have posted a video with their thoughts about it, taken from their experience with the game at EGX
Maybe I could understand if either the blog or the video failed to mention Boom. But the fact both of them have failed to mention it and so far none of Sega’s other media outlets have confirmed that Boom is playable at the expo, I really have to ask, why has it been deliberately kept a secret?
Anyway, if anyone does play the game at EGX this week, let us know in the comments what you thought of the game. Good, bad, ugly or awesome.
