I bet sonic.

That football mini game looks awful too

I'd like to travel back to when sonic games were good.

A Mario and Sonic game deserves a better genre than minigame sports.

This. Seriously, this.

Thank you Nintendo for continuing the trend of making Mario effeminate, even in a sports game.

I think I'll just stick to those old Mario vs. Sonic flash videos, with decapitations and such.

If you told me that Mario and Sonic would star in Olympic themed games when I was a kid I wouldn't have believed you. Not because of the cross over but because a mini game collection of these two icons sounds like a waste. That said my mom works at a school and a bunch of kids are ridiculously excited for this and Sonic Generations.

Oh please. Alright, let me reintroduce you two: Peach meet horse; horse meet Peach.

GET OFF BIG BEN MARIO AND SONIC

This thumbnail has made me question why so many mascots wear white gloves. Are they butlers? Are they going to a fancy dinner? Maybe they are inspecting a used car, or looking for dust.

No fingerprints. You don't want to know what they do in their free time.

Hint: it's cocaine and murder.

I'd rather go to the real Olympics. Oh yeah, I am. Suck it, bitches.

I am so happy that every time there's a horse-jumping-over-stuff minigame THAT remark will always appear in some form or fashion. Cheers to the good ol' days.

Waluigi doesn't look so bad when mixed in with all of Sonic's friends.

So am I, can I still suck it anyway?

Seriously, after all these years of being rivals, Nintendo and Sega couldn't come together and make an adventure game featuring the two worlds of mario and sonic somehow clashing together? Eggman and Bowser teams up to take down the two heroes? Eggman double crosses Bowser because he really don't care for Bowser's intentions, he just wants the chaos emeralds Bowser was unaware of that was hidden in his world, or in his castle. Mario and Sonic working together in different scenarios, a race against time to collect the chaos emeralds. As game developers I'm sure they can make it work. Get back Yuji Naka, and grab Miamoto (forgive the spelling errors) and lock them in a room for 10 freak'n days.

Just a hell of a ride for making the ultimate platform adventure ever made. And it's seriously not being considered?

Common, Nintendo.... common Sega!

@adny2: or they could make another shit game for cheap and profit like crazy from it. they love doing that.

Posted by MormonWarrior

I still don't understand how anybody expects me to believe that Sonic would ever lose to...well, anyone in a race. Where his whole point is running faster than the speed of sound, you'd think he'd automatically win.

Whatever. I'm overthinking this piece of crap shovelware.

Edited by krabboss

There's a good chance the game will be trash, but there's a slight chance it won't be. There's nothing inherently wrong with minigame collections. I'm not interested in playing the game really, I just want to see if they'll clean it up enough to make a decent time waster.

Posted by AngelN7

Remember when Sonic wasn´t Mario´s bitch? ... oh right.

Posted by Ozone

All these Olympics games made by SEGA, and the only thing Nintendo's done is put Sonic in Smash Bros. Come on, Nintendo. Just make a cross-over platformer already. I want good Sonic gameplay for once this decade.

Posted by Axelhander

@Ozone: Sadly, for that you'll have to stick to Sonic 2 or 3&K. Which I know aren't this decade. :(

The caption seems to be implying that an overweight, mustachioed Italian plumber wouldn't be the ideal choice for an Olympic athlete.

Posted by confinedbread

The rower in me is disgusted at how bad they fucked up that sport. They're not even facing the right direction.

Also, I'm pretty sure hedgehogs aren't allowed to compete at the olympics.

They're famous, but they're not Hollywood famous; so they have to punch a lot of people in the face.

The gloves ensure that they don't leave any DNA in some guy's eye socket.

Posted by CommodoreGroovy

Mario and Sonic for President! Or at least that's what the video preview makes it look like. Although, I would be more up for a presidental campaign simulator staring Mario and Sonic than this Olympics garbage.

Posted by Zenthere

Wait, are they competing for the same country?

Posted by MachoFantastico

Damn you Lewis from the Yogcast, I just can't see that Olympic logo in the same light any more.

That overweight autistic plumber is racing that bipedal green lizard. This is the stuff of nightmares

Oh SHIT, SYNCHRONIZED SWIMMING SON! ....................................SHIT JUST GOT REAL

Honestly, I'd rather watch this then the real Olympics.

Posted by itsjoncharles

Remember when GiantBomb didn't bitch all the time? Oh, right.

Posted by SmilingPig

Pairing Sonic with Mario is like having a dead rat in the same plate as a fillet mignon.

Posted by McGhee

Sonic was never in Mario's league, even more so today.

Posted by Sportsplosion

Nope, that logo still looks like Lisa Simpson giving Bart a blowjob.

Posted by PinkSoda

Way to sell out.

Posted by Cocainemancer

They've been making some really stupid and unoriginal characters for Sonic games recently.

Posted by MeatSim

Finally! I can do synchronized swimming with Mario and Sonic.
