The 24-hour livestream will be held on October 26

My homeboy David Oxford, writer at The Mega Man Network and and fellow editor on NF Magazine, has planned a special charity event alongside Ian Flynn, lead writer on Archie's Mega Man and Sonic the Hedgehog comic series. For 24 hours beginning Saturday, October 26, the duo will take to TwitchTV and play Sonic Lost World on Wii U through its entirety. They'll shoot the sh*t, take questions about the Archie comics or anything else, and accept donations for the SickKids Foundation.

Current event sponsors include NF Magazine and UDON Entertainment, who may be offering some tasty raffle prizes. Maybe you'll win a copy of The History of Sonic The Hedgehog, which will receive a second hardcover printing soon as well as a softcover one.

David and Ian are targeting a modest $1000-to-$1500 goal, and you can even pre-donate right now. If you want to help our boys acquire the needed capture equipment for the livestream, you can do that as well. Just hit up the link below for all the scrumptious details.

Nintendo surprised us all with a special announcement for Sonic Lost World -- the Wii U edition of the game will be getting two new Nintendo-centric DLC stages. While the pricing model hasn't been revealed on the second add-on (which is strongly hinted as a Zelda stage), the first pack, the Yoshi's Island Zone, is completely free.
I never thought there was anything particularly difficult about Sonic Lost World on the Wii U, but apparently some people out there don't agree. As a result, SEGA has rolled out a fan-centric patch that allows you to ear...
Sonic Lost World scampered over to Japan the other week, but folks there haven't welcomed the blue hedgehog with open arms. Upon hearing the iconic speed demon was returning with another middling adventure, people everywhere ...
While it's still popular to suggest Sonic the Hedgehog hasn't had a decent game in decades, this generation alone has at least shown significant improvements. Sonic the Hedgehog 4 was an enjoyable, if controversial game, whil...

Jim Sterling and Tony Ponce are easily the biggest Sonic fans on staff so it only made sense that I have them go play Sonic Lost World while at PAX Prime 2013. And as it turns out, there's some hope for the game. The control...
