Weekly Video Game Track: Sonic Mania Final Boss

Sonic Mania has some really good music. I’m a big fan of the music they chose for the “final” boss fight with Robotnik. The reason why it’s in quotes is because, as I show in my playthrough of it, there’s a “true final” boss fight when you get...

BlurryPhoenix Streams: Sonic Mania (Pt. 6)

(Originally streamed on 9/9/2017)Time to grind out the remaining Chaos Emeralds. Which, in the process, I figured out a good way to also grind out some levels. Who knows how many I’ll need to get the “true ending” of Sonic Mania. That said, boy did these Chaos Emerald...

BlurryPhoenix Streams: Sonic Mania (Pt. 5)

BlurryPhoenix Streams: Sonic Mania (Pt. 2)

(Originally streamed on 9/2/2017)Flying Battery Zone gives me so much nostalgia. Which is weird, because I didn’t get to it that many times. As a kid, it was really only Angel Island Zone and Hydrocity Zone that I would hit on Sonic 3. The further I get into...

BlurryPhoenix Streams: Sonic Mania (Pt. 1)

(Originally streamed on 9/2/2017)You have no idea how giddy I was to finally play this game. Or, maybe you do… Regardless, it is so nice to play a “true” sequel to Sonic & Knuckles. I’m loving the bosses! I mean, play Puyo Puyo against Robotnik for a boss...
