After years and years of waiting, Sega has released a true successor to 16-bit Sonic the Hedgehog games.

Joe and Marc try to convince Matt to stop hating Sonic as we work our way through the first three stages in Sonic Mania. We learn a little bit about the background of this game’s story and when Matt ate his first chili dog.

We discuss the level and game design of Sonic, and debate if this makes us more or less excited for Sonic’s future. Finally, we try our best at Competition Mode and Time Trials.
