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.Watch live video from usgamernet on www.twitch.tv
You can join us on the Twitch stream above, or click through to our Twitch channel to enjoy chat with our community. When we're done, you'll find the archive of the stream on the official USgamer YouTube channel and here on this article.
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!
