Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal Preview: Sticking Points

Modern Sonic games are so traditionally bad, only a potent mix of naivete and boredom would allow me to purchase the game uninformed.

Rejoice! Mewtwo Will be in Smash Bros.

I don’t normally get all riled up about the character roster in Smash Bros. but it still hurt seeing Mewtwo omitted from the roster twice in a row. Maybe it was an inability to accept that Mewtwo wouldn’t be in Smash Bros. on the Wii U or 3DS but a feeling in my gut said that more »
