In this episode of Tubby Talk, Terry, Steve, and Chris dash into the world of Sonic the Hedgehog. This character hit some amazing high points in the 90s, but has had what we'd charitably call an inconsistent run in the two decades since. Of course, we can't talk about Sonic in the modern era with touching upon his powerful influence on the world of memes.

Games discussed include: Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic 3, Sonic and Knuckles, Sonic 3D Blast, Sonic CD, Sonic Adventure, Sonic Adventure 2, Sonic 4, Sonic Mania.

Rainbow Islands

Taito's 1987 title Rainbow Islands is the second arcade game in the popular Bubble Bobble series. It stars Bubby and Bobby, the dragon protagonists of the first game, in their human forms. Players create rainbows which function as both an attack and a platform creation tool, climbing to the top of a series of vertical stages.
