Seeing green and red? It must be Christmas!
Every year the world patiently (or not-so-patiently) counts down those 24 days to Christmas; there’s even calendars filled with little treats to help keep the young ones patient.
Then the big day rolls around and it’s filled with great food, great company and, of course, presents.
Christmas is the best time of year, and so to do our bit in celebrating we’re doing our own advent calendar. Each day we’ll unveil another game that has touched us in some way over the year – whether because it’s a work of interactive art, laugh-out-loud funny or just so weird it blew our mind.
So be sure to check back each day for a new game suggestion to fill your Christmas break!
2011 will be fondly remembered by Sonic fans as the year in which the blue hedgehog finally returned to some kind of form.
After so many years of struggling with poor 3D games, uninspired 2D games and utterly woeful fighting games and RPGs, Sonic Generations had everything right. It had speed. It had workable 3D sections. It didn’t have warehogs.
It’s also worth noting that Sonic’s kart racing game, which was a middling Mario Kart clone when it was released on console, found a home on the iPad and iPhone as a cheap downloadable game that was a hell of a lot of fun. You can check out our review of that game here.
