Exploring The Blue Blur's Past and Future




Sega's anthropomorphic mascot has certainly had a rough life. Starting strong out of the gates in 1991, Sonic made it possible for Sega to compete toe to toe with Nintendo.

No Spell Check Required




With a name like Typoman, what type of game could this be? An educational adventure for kids teaching them about spelling? A beat 'em up where you play as a hero who attacks grammatically incorrect bad guys? Try a Wii U exclusive platformer where you use words to solve puzzles. Didn't see that one coming did you?

Coming from the creative …
