Plus or minus?
You know, the PlayStation Plus lineup for June isn't bad at all -- at least, that's what we think. Borderlands: The Handsome Collection and Sonic Mania?

The animated intro for Sonic Mania was such a hit with fans that a batch of short cartoons was released, collectively known as Sonic Mania Adventures.

Now removed by SEGA
A sizeable update for Sonic Mania was released on PlayStation 4 in the UK last night, much to the surprise of fans. It seems that SEGA accidentally launched the patch early, as access to it has now been removed. Of course, that didn't stop a handful of people from updating the much loved classic style Sonic title, and there are a...
Retail release finally confirmed

The updated version – which will be available as a DLC pack for those who already own the title digitally – will add two new characters to the throwback sidescroller: Mighty the Armadillo and Ray...
Shocking, we know
"Sonic Mania is the highest-rated new Sonic game in 15 years.
