Sonic the Comic’s First Christmas

I have in my mitts the first festive issue of Sonic the Comic, dated November 27th1993. It wasn’t the closest issue to Christmas, but it did come with a cardboard tree decoration. Now seems a good time to talk about this issue, the history of Sonic the Comic,...

Atari reveals an Akka Arrh remake from Jeff Minter

Looks like we’ll have to wait a little longer for Space Giraffe 2. Atari has revealed that Jeff Minter’s latest project is an Akka Arrh revival. Unfamiliar with Akka Arrh? That’s understandable.

The N64 Encyclopedia book review
