Sega confirms Sonic as main character in Needlemouse

Well, you didn't think it was going to be Big the Cat, did you?

You've got to hand it to Sega. They could have just made one simple announcement that Sonic the Hedgehog would be the only playable character in Project Needlemouse and won over critical and fan favor in one fell swoop. Instead, they trotted out the rogues gallery of annoying playable characters that have polluted Sonic's games over the last few years, striking two characters off of the list each day. Thus, today's announcement holds even greater weight, since there was a chance, be it ever so slight, that Amy or Big the Cat would serve as the game's protagonist.

Not only are we blessed with the knowledge that none of the annoying new characters will sully Sonic's next adventure, but we've also been graced with the first concept image for Project Needlemouse too, showing a contemporary take on one of Sonic's oldest and weakest enemies. Project Needlemouse is due this year on unspecified platforms, though it has been stated that the game will be in HD.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
