Sega Addicts After Hours Episode 23: Creepy Demos and Crappy Connections

In this week’s episode we get a special guest star (Brett’s mom – no, I’m not kidding!) in Part 1, and some unfortunate technological issues that result in the video being a two-parter.

Sonic Boom Adds Shadow to Its DAMN Roster; Instantly Becomes DAMN Game of the DAMN Year

Sonic Boom Adds Shadow to Its DAMN Roster; Instantly Becomes DAMN Game of the DAMN Year

DAMN.

DAMN.

Sonic Boom has been the source of many mixed feelings as of late. Between the lukewarm (at best) reactions to the character redesigns (although I for one welcome our new buff echidna overlord), mild amusement over the cartoon, and fearing the worst after seeing (and hearing, dear god) the game in action, the general consensus is cautious optimism at best, and fearing another mid-decade…

FAIR WARNING: This week we had some video issues and were only able to record an audio version. There is a slideshow to go along with the YouTubeversion, but for…

The whole thing is really a blur at this point, but I still have awesome pictures to post, and I suppose I have enough brain cells left to make something of a recount of events. Also, I really want cake. Seriously, where is my cake. Scotty promised me cake for doing these posts. (Note…
