I like space. This can mean two things: I like outer space, a popular setting in sci-fi cinema which represents the great unknown, and I like the figurative term “space,” in that I prefer to be alone.

I finished the game for the fourth(?) time in my life; with it, I think I can finally settle my true feelings for it once and for all. This may either be revolutionary or a mess lying in wait. Hopefully, it’ll be both and more. Continue reading “Sonic Adventure DX: Director’s Cut Review”
