Flashback Friday: Sonic The Hedgehog celebrates 25 Years!


In what is certainly a milestone for one of the most recognizable characters in video game history, SEGA honored its most famous blue mascot Sonic The Hedgehog - as the "way past cool" hero and freedom fighter celebrated his 25th anniversary!


Naturally, Sonic's origins stem way back in 1991 with the release of the original "Sonic The Hedgehog" video game for the Sega Genesis/ Mega Drive 16-Bit platform on June 23, 1991. That game introduced us to the blue hedgehog as he fought to stop the evil Dr. Robotnik from conquering his world and enslaving his friends by turning them into robots. That platform title was a hit, and spawned an immediate sequel the next year with Sonic The Hedgehog 2, followed by a 3rd game and then more spin-offs that eventually led to the birth of a franchise.


25 Years of Sonic the Hedgehog!

To celebrate 25 years, SEGA has released a video for Sonic's birthday!

Game Of Thrones: "Battle of the Bastards" was EPIC


As one of the most EPIC shows to be seen and witnessed in television to date, the penultimate episode of HBO's "Game of Thrones" proved without a shadow of a doubt that there is much to be said about creating a medieval fantasy battle that has the stakes on and lots of gruesome deaths as a result of it... "Battle of the Bastards" was that episode, and it showcased the long awaited confrontation between Jon Snow and his mix of free folk and loyal Stark bannermen against the forces of Ramsay Bolton and those who serve under him for the right to claim Winterfell and The North.


Let's just say that episode was "Lord of The Rings meets Saving Private Ryan meets 300", and you'll get the idea on how GRAND that episode was. Much thought and production was put into this episode, and it did not disappoint... Not one bit. You see things steadily on the rise as far as storylines go, and George R.R. Martin's epic world based on his "A Song of Ice and Fire" novels is moving ahead in the television department.


A look inside the episode gives more insight on how this eclipses what happened in last season's "Hardhome", which is directed by this episode's director, Miguel Sapochnik. Now the world awaits how Season 6 will end. Come next week, the "Winds of Winter" will rise.

Game of Thrones airs every Sunday on HBO.
