Jeff, Will and Zack hit up the Toronto Underground Cinema last week for Son of Kung Fu Fridays and ended up recording a post-fu podcast with some of the gents from the Chinatown theatre. For this episode we were joined by returning guest Peter Kuplowsky, Underground manager and amateur Van Morrison impersonator Alex Woodside, and Morgan White, creator of the The Rep — the excellent web-series based on the theatre.
Sega’s console dynasty, headed by Sonic and his masterful platformers on the Genesis, is long gone. The blue rodent’s high-budget 3-D games have had mixed results at best, with the occasional disaster that few franchises could ever recover from. With that in mind, Sonic Team and Dimps – designers of Sonic’s handheld “Rush” series – have come together to create Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1. It’s the first part of what hopes to be a grand return to the series’ salad days.
