The AFA Gaming Podcast: Sonic The Hedgehog

February 20, 2020

Welcome back to the 6th Episode of our dedicated Gaming podcast where we celebrate games and the animation that brings them to life. This time, as the first Sonic The Hedgehog Movie speeds into cinemas, Rachael and Chris look back at the franchise as a whole.

We talk about the games, the various animated series (0:15) and anime (0:56) the comics and eventually discuss the new movie itself (from 1:hr16). We discuss how the games have adapted to the 3D era (at 0:31) and whether the franchise is fit for the new century or better left in the 1990s.
