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.

The Entertainment Dome One Shot – Icebox: Speedgunner

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.

Shout outs to Carmine Fantarella for supplying me with the code and Nevada Dru for recommending me.

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
