First Thoughts On Sonic Mania

I’m a huge fan of the Classic Sonic the Hedgehog games, so Sonic Mania was a game I just had to play day 1, and play I did. I actually played for quite a few hours today a somewhat rare thing for me to do, and I had a hell of a good time. That …

WatchMojo Responds To Top Hat Gaming Man’s Video

In the previous article, I shared a video from Top Hat Gaming Man regarding the issue WatchMojo stealing research from GuruLarry regarding video game consoles which failed to sell.

Here’s Ashens First Video, Because I Had Nothing Else Ready To Post Today
