  • Video Sonic Colours Has Some of the Coolest Glitches

    Blurring the lines

    We know the popular narrative for some is to say that Sonic's been in a rut and had a bad run of games, but recent years have brought some solid entries. Sonic Colours / Sonic Colors certainly qualifies as one of the better releases in the past couple of generations, blending 2D and 3D play with some neat twists and power-ups. In...

    Turning rings into coins

    Last year's hedgehog outing Sonic Colours on Wii and Sonic Colours were two of the year's better platformers, and certainly the highlight of the blue spiky one's recent career.

  • News Grab a Blue Classic Controller with Sonic Colours Down Under

    And the figures too

    The Sonic Colours Special Edition with the Wisp figures is all well and good, but what it's really lacking is an awesome blue Classic Controller.
