Retro Gaming & The Past

I recently discovered a hidden benefit to playing games that bring back that retro vibe - specifically Sonic Mania Plus.

Sonic CD – The Most Creative 2D Platformer Of All Time?

Sonic 1, 2, 3 & Knuckles are the games most people think of when they hear classic Sonic. Well, that and possibly Sonic Mania, or now Sonic Mania Plus. But possibly the best of the original games also happens to be the one that gets the least attention: I’m talking about Sonic CD. Released for the undersold, quirky Sega CD, Sonic CD was a hidden gem. Its lack of attention can most likely...

Infendo Review – Sonic Forces (Switch)

Infinite Possibilities, Limited Presentation The Switch finally has a 3D Sonic game in its roster, following a long tradition of Sonic on Nintendo dating back to the GameCube. Sonic Forces is a game with a very mixed overall reception, and with good reason; It’s a very mixed bag. What it does well, it does very well. However, there are things that are missing that really keep this game from ...

Infendo Review – Sonic Forces (Switch)

Sonic Forces does a lot right. It delivers a really enjoyable experience that's just a bit more serious than past Sonic titles, which is all the better. In terms of gameplay, it probably falls just short of Sonic Colors, but the differences from level to level really help keep the game moving at a quick pace. The entire game can probably be finished in a day or two, and while there is some incenti...

Feel the Joy: A Few Custom Joy-Con Ideas

The Switch’s Joy-Con are pretty cool. Being able to change out your controller’s appearance in a few seconds is pretty cool, and I can definitely see collecting them becoming a habit (albeit an expensive one). Here’s a few ideas for some video game-inspired Joy-Con that I’d admittedly enjoy owning.   MARIO KART 8 DX PIKACHU MUSHROOM SUPER WARIO BROS. SONIC THE HEDGEHOG...

QUEST FOR THE BEST – Lukas’ Top 25 Games

Jumping on to Steve’s idea, this is a list of my favourite games of all time. This list is entirely subjective, and is based on my personal opinion. Here’s the rules for my list: Similarly to Steve, I’ll start by listing all of the totally radical games I can think of. From there, I’ll use my tubular powers of observation and rememberation to wickedly whittle the list down ...

SEGA unveils Sonic Boom for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS

SEGA is planning to unleash an ambitious new marketing campaign featuring none other than the blue blur himself, Sonic. Coming later this year, Sonic Boom will be released on the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, along with a CG animated series of the same name on Cartoon Network. Sonic and his friends will be sporting new character designs in the series, and all sorts of merchandise is going to accompany t...

Sonic Lost Worlds Parkour Element Explained

An exciting new element within Sonic Lost World is the inclusion of the Parkour system.  Game designer Takashi Lizuka explained the technique to Polygon to tell us just how helpful it will be within the game. “It is far easier for usability but it also gives players the ability to use the special actions better. So for example, when Sonic is leaping over a wall, you could just let him leap normall...

Sonic Lost Worlds debut trailer

Today, Sega has released the first footage of the Wii U and 3DS exclusive title, Sonic Lost Worlds. The trailer depicts Sonic in a brand new environment that looks to echo back to the character’s early days of rampant speed and tight control. Sega has not mentioned other details regarding the title, but one thing does to come to mind: From the looks of the trailer, Sonic Lost Worlds seems to...

Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games

Will you be celebrating the Olympics this weekend with Mario or Sonic?             Or are you going old school?                    

Review: Mario and Sonic win the gold…for bizarre gameplay

The 3DS edition of Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games hit store shelves last month. Mediocre initial review scores made me wary, but I did enjoy the eShop demo, so I finally caved and bought the cartridge. To be blunt: If you want great gameplay from a recent release, buy Resident Evil: Revelations or spend a few bucks to download Pushmo or Sakura Samurai. There’s truly only one reas...
