Looks like Sports Connection would be a good candidate for your new buggy icon.

I enjoyed the Sonic All Stars demo.  It played well and more importantly was fun.  Good review.

Glad you like Sonic and Sega all stars Transformed. I personally like the game more than Mario Kart Wii!

Sonic All Star Racing looks awesome, it'll definitely be something I pick up when I eventually get a Wii. It's good to see Sega releasing some solid games every once in a while. For a few years there they had me worried but their Sonic titles lately have been improving with each release.

Good call!  Can't believe I missed that.  So obvious.

I'm curious about something with Epic Mickey 2.  Did you notice any frame-rate issues with it? Because I heard other reviewers say that it chugged badly on the Wii U, compared to the other systems' versions (I played the 360 one and saw friends play the Wii version and didn't notice any hiccups in either).

Also, I'm surprised you didn't mention that the second player has to the Wii-Mote and Nunchuk for the co-op on Wii U, which makes it even more surprising and dumb that there's no Wii-Mote and Nunchuk option for player 1 to use over the Gamepad.

I'm glad you like Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. I enjoyed the XBox 360 version when I rented it, and I have plans for purchasing the 3DS version when it hits store shelves on February 12.

Keep up the great work Critic.

There's a way to play Sonic All-Stars Racing Transformed solely on the gamepad.

I couldn't figure out any way to do so within the menus and kept tapping the screen to see if that works with no results other than changing map details and rear view options.

The way you can play single player on the screen is to swipe the screen from top to bottom.  You'll be prompted to confirm to play on the gamepad, and then the game will play only on the tablet.

It's a feature that's not documented anywhere that I could find.

It's an awesome game but this one feature or lack there of was killing me.
