Sonic Mania might get a standalone physical release after all

Sonic Mania was confirmed very early on for the PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One platforms, but it just had one holdup -- a lack of a physical edition. Sure it had a special edition, a rad one in fact, but that comes with a download card. We d...

Sonic Mania's bonus stages are nostalgic as heck

When we got word that special stages would return for Sonic Mania, I tried to name my favorite type and came up short. I couldn't name a winner, even just taking the classic games into consideration. I liked each of the special stages for d...

Special stages are back in Sonic Mania

If there's one element of classic Sonic the Hedgehog games I tend to forget about until I go back to replay them, it's the special stages. Favorite? Least favorite? I like them for different reasons. Sonic 1's bouncy mazes were mesmerizing ...

Total War: Warhammer II's pre-order race is barbaric

Time certainly flies on the internet. It already feels like a week between Creative Assembly's announcement that Total War: Warhammer II's pre-order DLC would be for the first game and this reveal. When I went to check on my original post, ...

The Sonic Mania soundtrack is killing it

Sega said it would share more full tracks from Sonic Mania soon, and here we are with the theme of the Hard-Boiled Heavies. I'm not sure this one tops Studiopolis for me, but I like its upbeat energy. No joke, these songs are getting me pu...

Kick off your weekend with this Sonic Mania jam

It's getting to be Friday night around here. Soon enough, that'll mean the rapid consumption of alcohol, a few rounds of Battlegrounds with my dudes, a lil EVO, and the horrible realization that I should've left 20 minutes ago to beat the ...

Sonic turns 26 today and Sega has a lot of stuff to sell you, the most notable of which is these Anippon kicks modeled after the fast rat's own. However I am not sure how fast you can expect to go in flat-footed slip-ons. Unfortunately for ...
