OXCGN’s Sonic Lost World Review for Wii U
Sonic Lost World, or Sonic Lost Cause?
by Yvan Zivkovic
Ah, Sonic. You were such a important impact in my childhood. Growing up with Sega consoles, I always looked forward to one of your new games. But now, how you have fallen from the platforming throne of the 16-bit era, once battling for the top mascot, you’re now selling your image for insurance commercials, appearing in a Disney movie, and cameoing in a game with your once arch rival!
Sega have made many attempts at the Sonic franchise, some great, like Sonic Generations, some not so great, like Sonic the Hedgehog 2006. So how does Sonic Lost World compare to Sonic games of the past?
Australian Retailer Clears Out Nintendo Stock, Including Wii U
With PS4 and Xbox One on the horizon, are retailers abandoning Nintendo?

It was from Australian retailer Dick Smith and after some ‘online exclusive’ deals it practically shouted that all Nintendo products, including consoles, were 50% off, “reduced to clear”.
There are none left. But this was surely some limited online deal right?
Wrong. And it likely spells a more than symbolic turn in the Ninendo’s Wii U fortunes in Australia.

The question is; does WWE ’13 raise the quality margin or is it simply a set of ditto marks under last year’s release?
OXCGN’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Review (Single Player)
Is the story sacrificed on the multiplayer altar?

Love it or hate it, the fact is that there’s never been a more successful franchise in the history of gaming. Some people might disagree, but Call of Duty has gone from strength to strength – especially when you look at the number of copies sold and the size of the multiplayer community.
Like it or not, Call of Duty is probably going to be around for a while yet.
Fortunately for me, I love it, and have done since the first release of Call of Duty so I expect a lot more from each new release to keep me hooked.
Black Ops 2 may be the sequel to 2010’s Black Ops, but release-wise, it is following Modern Warfare 3.
Since this is a single player review only, I will say that following Modern Warfare 3 will not be easy because it was fantastic.

From the moment the voice over details how to become the Most Wanted, the production value is nothing shy of perfection. It’s present throughout the game and it’s at its pinnacle when being introduced to each of the 10 Most Wanted racers in Fairhaven.
