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. ...

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...

Night Trap was originally being produced by Hasbro

Were you aware that Night Trap was originally being produced by Hasbro games for a failed video format? How about that the footage for the game was filmed in 1987, five years before the game officially shipped? Would you be surprised if I t...

[Update] Sega Genesis Flashback is not being well received

[Disclaimer: I have to apologise. This piece was originally written to be a little too inflammatory, and was not well thought out. I have no direct experience with this device but wanted to comment on clone consoles in general, having exper...

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...
