Today’s going to be a blogging kind of day I think, I’ve got a ton to catch up on and a load I want to prepare for the coming year. So I’ll be keeping this intro pretty brief, but I will say it’s the game I’ve actively been playing the most of this past couple of weeks outside of Apex. I am kind of itching to get back to it honestly, but like I said, blogging it taking precedence today.
This is another post that has been sat in my drafts for a while, me putting it in when I heard the inevitable news that the live action Sonic the Hedgehog movie was getting a sequel. Quite possibly the least surprising movie news I’ve heard all year. Like I said when I talked about the movie shortly after seeing it, the whole thing only really felt tangentially related to the franchise it was named after. So what piques my interest is what route this sequel might pursue.
As much as I like to boast that I’m not a nostalgic person, there have been a string of video games coming out this year that seem to evoke a very specific era of my childhood. And while I’m not going to fall over myself to to sing the praises of one of the bigger games I played growing up, I’m still kind of in awe of the fact that we got another Streets of Rage game after over 25 years.
