…but is Sonic headed for another ice berg?
This past few months has been pretty great to be a Sonic fan right? SEGA seems to have got their priorities in check and giving the fans what they want with the upcoming Sonic Mania – even though it has just been pushed back from Spring to Summer, at least it is coming and it looks great! However, there is another. Continue reading
The internet thrives on the creation of myths and the spreading of misinformation parading as facts. In such an enlightened age, where information is available on tap 24 hours a day 7 days a week it is incredible to think that many take what they see on the internet at face value and blindly believe it without doing research.
