We are back with another Video Games Monthly unboxing and a stack of recent pickups for the month of September.
REVIEW: Sonic Mania
For 25 years, Sonic the Hedgehog has been one of the most popular characters in gaming, only second to Mario. There have been so many sequel and spin-off games that have come from this series over a number of different platforms, it’s hard to keep up with them all. Somewhere along the way, Sonic games began to lose what made the series special.
Planet of the Apes Game Announced
Movie tie-ins are not uncommon these days. Games based on movies still happen, though not as frequently as they used to. They are typically known for not being… well, good. But every now and then, a movie based game comes along and not only is fun to play, but represents the movie it is based on well. Today it was announced that Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier will be coming and it looks pretty damn good.
Tempest 4000 Is Coming
Back in the early 80s, my dad took me to an arcade and that’s where I first saw it. In this oddly shaped cabinet, it’s vector line graphics wow’d me and I fell in awe of it at the first quarter drop. Years later, Tempest would get a sequel on the Atari Jaguar and it was great as well. Now, we will finally see the next installment in the series: Tempest 4000.
