Hey there guys, Cazza here and welcome to my Destructoid page where you'll find my random entries and game reviews. I've always had a strong passion for writing and have been doing game reviews for almost 6 years now. I first started gaming at a young age when we went and got a SNES. First game I ever played was Super Ghouls n Ghosts. Yeah, I started out hardcore. If I had to name a favourite console it would probably be the SEGA Megadrive as it's home to possibly my favourite game of all time, Sonic 3 & Knuckles. Although if I had to choose a non retro game as my favourite, it would go to Dementium: The Ward. A horror FPS for the Nintendo DS created by Jools Watsham and his team over at Renegade Kid. Fantastic game which you should all go out and try.
Outside of gaming, one of my bigger interests are ... yeah you could see this coming from 10 miles away. I have quite a big interest in Anime and Manga. Well Anime more than Manga but its nice to have a shelf filled with books of some sort. Started Anime when I was about 13 with Naruto then I ventured into different series. My favourites would have to be Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, Hidamari Sketch, Cromartie High School, Sengoku Basara and Baccano. I'm not that much into manga but I do read a few every now and then. Infact, last time I read manga was when my friend linked me to chapter 1 of Vinland Saga.
Music taste? What's that? Yeah if its me you're looking at, all you're gonna find are Anime openings or Video Game songs. I absolutely love game music, so much. Best soundtrack? In my opinion its most likely the Ace Attorney series. Saying that, I still have a soft spot for 8 and 16 bit music. Dr.Wily Stage 1 anyone?
So SEGA just gave us the first taste of Sonic 4 music (bar the title screen jingle) and its bloody fantastic. The song released is for the first stage in the game; Splash Hill Zone act 1. It has a modern feel to it whilst still retaining some of that retro-sounding goodness. Just it sounds like something they've shovelled out from Sonic Heroes. Sounds far too much like Seaside Hill for my liking. Still catchy as hell. If you want to download it, you can get it on the Official Sonic 4 Site which actually just got a huge makeover. New background skin and sections. Oh and delicious 3D Robotnik model <3
