According to a recent study by scientists, they have reported and predicted that the state of California could possibly face a severe storm.

During the process of this storm, it would take roughly 40 days for the rain to accumulate up to ten feet of rain. However, what would essentially push the storm to cause such catastrophe would be the strong winds that could reach 125 miles per hour.

Game Review: Sonic Colors

I’ve been a fan of Sonic the Hedgehog, a character created by Yuji Naka for the gaming company SEGA, since I was five years old. My first Sonic game being the famous Sonic Adventure for the Dreamcast, I’ve always had a good time with the blue blur. Of course, it hasn’t necesarilly been a good time for him however, his previous game outings have not been received well by the gaming masses.

His first game on a 3’rd generation console, Sonic the Hedgehog (Sonic 06), was panned by both gaming professionals and fans alike for a variety of reasons and from what I’ve seen were well deserved. His next game, Sonic Unleashed, seemed to improve from Sonic 06 but again was panned by video game critics alike. Personally, I found the game somewhat enjoyable, but found some aspects repetitive and the Night Levels levels to much of a break from regular gameplay. But despite all this, Sonic Colors seems to be the game to break the “Sonic Cycle” once and for all.
