    Mighty No. 9

    Regardless of how much you like the Mega Man series, in Mighty No.9 you're unlikely to find a game that comes close to that legacy. I've played Mega Man, but I've never 'played' Mega Man. It's largely similar... more

    Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 Review

    Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1

    Sonic 4 does a fantastic job of recreating the retro Sonic experience that defined many a childhood, but ironically this could be considered its biggest shortcoming. The title screen sets the precedent. Sonic poses behind a familiar looking... more
