So Sonic Mania is out and it's sounding like it's actually pretty dang good. But is it only good if you loved Sonic back in the '90s, or would somebody without that nostalgia still think it's great? That was one of the topics on this episod...

Review: Sonic Mania

What can you say about Sonic that hasn't already been said? He's had his ups and downs, and while he started very high up, he's sunk really far down over the past decade or so and even kissed a human girl. Oh, and he's shown up to race...

Sonic Mania's opening animation is just perfect

Sonic Mania, so far, has a way of hitting us with a specific chord of nostalgia that doesn't feel desperate. Christian Whitehead, a longtime Sonic fangame developer that eventually started working directly with Sega, knows what he's doing. ...

Ristar brightens up the Sega Forever line-up

Once upon a time, the Sonic Team didn't make solely Sonic the Hedgehog games. In the later days of the Genesis, Yuji Naka (Sonic's creator) tried his hand at creating a new mascot for the company (reworked from the original c...

Speed past your friends in Sonic Mania's competition mode!

With how popular split-screen gaming used to be in the retro days, its crazy that Sonic never really had a competitive multiplayer mode outside of Sonic 2 and 3. I have a lot of memories of wanting a full on co-op experience like that, tink...

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 ...

My gaming future without the 3DS

[The 3DS was a handheld that I never quite grew as attached to as the Game Boy or the DS, despite its great library of games. For NinjaSpped, though, it's a whole different story. - HypnoCoffin] I love the Nintendo 3DS. I distinctly remembe...

The Blue Blur's comic book adventures have been published by Archie Comics for 24 long years. Sonic the Hedgehog comics launched in 1993, and after nearly 300 issues it was the longest-running monthly American comic to never be relaunched.&...

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 ...

Go fast with Sonic shoes

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 ...
