USgamer Lunch Hour: Sonic Mania [Finished!]

USgamer Lunch Hour: Sonic Mania [Finished!]

Is the mania for Sonic Mania well-deserved? We'll see on the next episode of USgamer Lunch Hour!

Welcome to USgamer Lunch Hour, where I and other USgamer staffers play a shiny new game together. Today, we're looking at Sega's recent addition to the long-running Sonic The Hedgehog series. Sonic Mania is a labor of love that combines the 16-bit art style of the original games alongside some new ideas and stages. Caty already reviewed the game and found the "pinnacle of the perpetually running hedgehog's pixel-embellished career". High praise!

Caty and I are going to be streaming Sonic Mania for USgamer Lunch Hour today at 1pm ET/10am PT.

As always, anyone can join us for our weekly streams, where we'll play releases old and new: Tuesdays and Thursdays at 1pm ET/10am PT. This Thursday's stream will be myself and Caty again, dueling it out in Nidhogg 2! Look forward to it!

M.H. Williams is new to the journalism game, but he's been a gamer since the NES first graced American shores. Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
