Sonic Boom Going to Japan

Amid hearsay among Japanese media after the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) that the Western-exclusive Sonic Boom will also go to Japan as Sonic Toon (ソニック・トゥーン), SEGA of Japan just launched the official website of Sonic Toon.

The games will indeed be available soon for Japan. However, nothing has been mentioned about the cartoon also going to Japan.

Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric (Wii U) and Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal (3DS) is scheduled to be released this November. Sonic Toon is scheduled to be released sometime in the winter of this year. Sonic Boom, the cartoon series, will soon begin airing in respective channels in their respective regions.

Song of the Week: June 13, 2014

Song: "Never Never"
Artist: Korn
Album: The Paradigm Shift (2013)

And I never wanna clarify
And justify
So I run and hide
And I never wanna signify
So I pacify all the hate inside

Korn is an American metal band from Bakersfield, California. Their current lineup consists of Jonathan Davis on vocals, James "Munky" Shaffer and Brian "Head" Welch on guitars, Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu on bass, and Ray Luzier on drums. Out of seven Grammy Award nominations, they have won two. Korn's fairly unorthodox approach to metal led to the introduction and mainstream breakthrough of the so-called "nu metal" subgenre, which featured other notable bands such as Slipknot, Limp Bizkit, and Linkin Park.

From Korn's latest album, The Paradigm Shift is "Never Never." "Never Never" once again dwells outside Korn's classic field of metal from their beginnings, more than a decade ago. The electronic sound likely comes from what came from their previous album, the dubstep-focused, highly experimental, one-time, not-even-really-metal-at-all The Path of Totality. Despite the song's overall simplicity, it's quite catchy for a Korn song, especially in regards to the somewhat emotive lyrics and brooding sound.

We definitely have to plenty to digest for this month.
