Classic Sonic fun is great in 2017, with releases like Spark and upcoming games like Freedom Planet 2 & Sonic Mania scratching that high-speed platforming itch. But want some Classic Sonic action now while waiting for Mania? Then check out Sonic Time Twisted. Produced by Overbound Games and been in development for years at this point, it takes pages from Sonic 3&K in addition to Sonic CD to create a fun new classic-styled adventure.

Perfect physics, three playable characters, new special stages and even new elemental shields help this game stand out among the clustered crowd of quality fan productions within the Sonic series. A full review on this tittle will be releasing on 3WIREL in the coming week, so stay tuned for that and other information on Time Twisted soon. A link to the soundtrack and game itself can be found here. 


So Sonic Forces is confirmed to have three gameplay styles, with two being known. Modern Sonic retaining the core gameplay we’ve seen since Unleashed and Generations while the Blue Blur’s Classic counter part is returning for some retro-action fun. A new style is also going to be present but we know nothing about that currently. We got a taste of Classic Sonic in Forces via recent Nintendo Direct. Today, SEGA of Europe released (what I assume based on the resolution and frame rate) direct-feed footage of the PS4/Xbox One/PC version of Forces with Classic Sonic running through Green Hill Zone.

The footage looks good visually and it mirrors the classic-look perfectly…but from this early footage I feel a bit worried. Level design doesn’t look that impressive and the placement of level objects (springs and speed boosters) doesn’t reflect on the level designs we saw in the Classic Stages in Generations. It still looks fun and little things seem to be improved; Sonic builds up speed when he rolls (unlike in Generations) and the less-busy presentation allows you to be more focused on the level itself.

Hopefully other Classic levels offer the vast paths and set-pieces we saw in the Classic Levels in Generations but we have to see what happens as we get closer to release. Stay tuned for further information.



 

On May 12th the dub for the Sun & Moon anime comes to Disney XD. I find it a bit strange that it’s coming out this late even tho the games have been out since November. Normally they would release the show around the same time as the games release. Better late than never I suppose. I strongly recommend checking this series out it’s pretty good.

Snake Pass has an incredibly interesting story behind it, and Alex was able to nab an interview with the man himself Seb Liese to talk about where the idea came from.


While Nathan Drake had is (seemingly) last adventure on the PlayStation 4, Ellie going on a dark adventure in Last of Us Part II in the future and the naughty Bandicoot having an N. Sane run this June…Naughty Dog’s legacy is front and center in the PlayStation 4 library. But one duo is missing…and while this isn’t a brand new adventure, games can play the iconic travels of JaK & Daxter on PlayStation 4.

Through using the PS2 on PS4 program, the four PS2 titles (Jak 1-3 & Jak X: Combat Racing) will be playable on PS4 through upscaled visuals and trophy support. This is strange though, considering Jak 1-3 already got proper remastered ports on PlayStation 3 a few years back (and a butchered port on PS Vita afterward), so the move of making the ISO’s of games playable on the PS4’s PlayStation 2 emulator strikes me as…lazy to be honest. They could have ported the series on to PS4 natively like how Uncharted and Last of Us got in the past.

Either way, it’s great the PS2 on PS4 program is still getting used for something and if you pre-order the upcoming DLC expansion for Uncharted 4, you can get Jak 1 as a free bonus.


Naruto is a major series, with it spanning many game releases. One sector of these games includes the Ninja Storm titles, which have impressed many through detailed visuals and fun combat. The games were locked to PlayStation 3 (Storm 1), Xbox 360 (Storm 2-3) and PC (Storm 2-3). Now, you can play all three games in one spot through a ‘Legacy’ collection on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in the near future. This even includes the most recent release and it’s major DLC expansion as well.

When you play Lego City Undercover on the Nintendo Switch, you have a few options. You could either play it off the cart, or install it on the system’s internal memory. Does it help with loading? The above video indicates installing the game makes load times far shorter, which is helpful honestly. Having a game load fast for an open world adventure is great, more so if you play on the go.
