If someone gave me the choice between a realistic shooter and a game where you play as gun wielding Dragons I will take the dragons every single time; which is why I am thankful to talk about a game that just got its first console release exclusively on Xbox One.  Have you ever wanted to take on an army of killer robots with a squad of fire breathing/gun wielding dragons? Then Dragon Bros is the game for you.

After the exciting reveal in North America, SEGA revealed this week that Sonic Mania will be coming to Europe and consoles next year. And it looks like the blue hedgehog will be arriving early 2017. Sonic Mania will be available for pre-order on Amazon exclusively and it has been revealed a collectors edition will be coming to. This collectors edition gives players a Sonic statue adorning a replica Sega Megadrive that plays the company audio when the switch is flipped. For me, it would be like having something that can pronounce my surname correctly, but I don't want to carry the statue round realistically. Anyway, check out the trailer below:

Some of you readers may know that I am rather fond of retro video games, I covered how retro games still dominate the best titles of the major gaming genres in last month's feature and this feature will focus upon what I have come across in my 3 months or so of serious retro games hunting.

My first ever console was a Super Nintendo which I got for my birthday in 1994, I remember the day like it was yesterday and I still have the first game I ever had for the SNES, my Street Fighter 2 Turbo cartridge sits in my collection to the right of me as I type. In later years I stupidly let go of my SNES because I had moved on to more advanced consoles like Playstation 2, Xbox 360 etc etc. It's been well publicised on this website that I am getting increasingly disillusioned with the gaming industry in its current form; I am [this] close to boycotting EA, I am fed up with overpriced average titles, and I am irritated by penny-and-dime practices from gaming companies. I like modern gaming, but I want to love modern gaming; it's a one-sided affair unfortunately.
