Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back to this week’s episode of Friday Funny! This is the second week of Friday for August and I hope we are still intact in this summer heat. As you can see from the title, get ready for another beloved platformer video game coming to the gaming shelves. It’s not Mario and it’s definitely not Crash Bandicoot, but it’s Sonic the Hedgehog and the game is Sonic Mania. Sonic Mania is a video game in which Sega along with Christian Whitehead (Video Game Programmer who Sonic 1 and 2 for iOS and Android) revamped the classic Sonic levels in whole HD game. You get to play in Green Hill Zone, Chemical Hills and experience the same feel as when you played Sonic 1, 2, 3, Sonic & Knuckles and CD. This is a wonderful way to celebrate Sonic’s 25th Anniversary for his video games and yes, we had some good and bad games in the past but Sonic kept on running to this future. Besides this, the OWLS have kickstarted another blog tour theme titled Bloodlines and we talk about the importance of family. So far we had mine, Takuto, Brandon and Lynlyn and the next one is Moonid; feel free to read and share our topic perspective. Last but not least and to have bragging rights, I have complete all trophies in the main game of Final Fantasy XV with a Platinum Trophy! I got the Platinum Trophy by defeating the level 99 monster Adamantoise and finding the equipment for Regalia-F. I also completed Stormy Ascent and got a gem in Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and completed Crash Warped (I need to collect all gems and relics). To those who don’t know, Stormy Ascent was a scrapped stage made by the original creators of Crash, Naughty Dog. This stage was and is infamous for the hardcore platforming and trickery for gamers; unfortunately, this stage was removed up until Activision decided to release this stage as a DLC. I am winner!
