WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Sonic Adventure
I’ll be among the first to admit that Sonic’s first 3D outing has not aged well. However, I have too much nostalgia for the game to care. As one of the games that acted as my gateway into the franchise, I have a lot of fond memories playing Sonic Adventure and I still enjoy playing it to this day. If I had to pick an all-time favourite moment from it, though, it’d probably have to be the final boss fight. Continue reading
This week on The Entertainment Dome, the newest RWBY episodes prompt an interesting discussion regarding a certain character, and we fanboy and theorise over the trailer for Avengers: Infinity War.
Well this is new. I actually got contacted by the good people at Games of Edan and received a Steam code for their new title, Icebox: Speedgunner – a first-person shooter/platformer all about getting to the goal as quickly as you can. But since I don’t have Steam, I roped my Entertainment Dome co-host, James, into playing the game and figured we’d do a one-off video about it and share our thoughts.
Is it something reserved only for the elitist of speed-runners or can even a casual player get some mileage out of it? Watch on to find out.
Shout outs to Carmine Fantarella for supplying me with the code and Nevada Dru for recommending me.

Icecap in Sonic Adventure is a much more platform-heavy level that requires you to take a slightly slower, more methodical approach to it… until you get to the snowboarding section that is.

After a hiatus of sorts that was born from the unmitigated disaster known as Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric, 2017 was set to be the year of Sonic the Hedgehog’s return. And while most eyes were focused on Sonic Mania, – a nostalgic throwback to his glory days in the 90s – my attention was placed squarely on his new 3D outing, Sonic Forces. If Mania was specifically designed to pander to Classic Sonic fans, Forces seemed to be doing the same for those who grew up with the more recent titles, such as myself.
Even when early previews were quite negative, I remained optimistic that while the game might not be the same level of quality as, say, Sonic Generations, it’d at the very least provide me with plenty of enjoyment and help usher in a new age of good 3D Sonic games. Sadly, that is not entirely the case. Continue reading
This week on The Entertainment Dome, we get a bit more emotional than usual over the newest RWBY episode, we continue to mock EA over the latest developments regarding their loot box fiasco and we go on a slight tirade about the triple A games industry and the bullshit it peddles.
This week on The Entertainment Dome, we only spend a short amount of time on the newest RWBY episode (and by short, I mean about 40 minutes), before moving onto EA’s latest screw-ups regarding Star Wars Battlefront II and James’ early opinions on Amazon’s upcoming Lord of the Rings TV show.
