  1. Pretty sure I have these already from PS+ but hey, why not. I remember the Sonic game being good looking, if you’re into Sonic. Horizon Chase Turbo is like a love letter to 80’s games like OutRun

  2. I 100%ed [I]Sonic Mania[/I] on both PC (Steam) and Switch (including the DLC), good sh1t there. I was already a fan of Christian Whitehead for his ports of [I]Sonic CD[/I], [I]Sonic 1[/I] and [I]Sonic 2[/I], and he and the other community members who made [I]Sonic Mania[/I] did a pretty good-@ss job. It’s not as good as the Genesis Sonic games or maybe even the GBA games like [I]Sonic Advance 1[/I] and [I]2[/I], but still a good 2D Sonic game. I definitely recommend checking it out.

    The racing game also looks very interesting, and taking influence from OutRun and the Rush series and other games they named sounds good to me.
