I'm back with another Sonic guide that I read. Sonic Unleashed is a game with the famous blue hedgehog doing what he does best: saving the world from Doctor Eggman (also known as Doctor Robotnik). In the mist of Sonic stopping Eggman again as Super Sonic, he captures Sonic and drains the power of the Chaos Emeralds to unleash a beast inside the earth called Dark Gaia. The side effects are that Sonic turns into a "Werehog" (refered to as WereSonic for the rest of the review) and people act very differently than they would normally, at night. Unlike the people, Sonic is the same on the inside when the sun goes down, despite looking like a beast. The main plot is to restore the Chaos Emeralds' power and stop Eggman as usual. I could go on and on about this game, but it would be rather boring if I did so. The guide itself really helps, but only if you have the PS2 (Playstation 2) or Wii versions. The XBox 360 and Playstation 3 versions are very different versions of the game and there's no guide for them, though the story is just the same. Sonic Unleashed is another game I highly recommend, but then again I may be biased, because I like Sonic a lot.

As I have mentioned in my "Good Night Bush" entry, I really like comedy and satire (usually depending on the topic). My Resource Room had a copy of the comedy newspaper "The Onion" and one of the articles was pretty interesting. This particular article was called "Sh*tload of Homework Due Monday" (censored for school reasons). It looks at how a teacher assigned an assignment right before the bell rang and how it was a pointless one. To sum up the article, one of the interviewees said one word. Because this is a school blog, I won't say it on here (Hint: It starts with "F" and ends in a "C-K"). Overall, the humor in that one article is sure to brighten any student's day when one is suffering having too much homework

Did you know Sonic The Hedgehog has the longest running video game comic series ever? Or that Super Mario Brothers 3 is the best selling game of all time (not including bundles with consoles)? You could learn this and much more in the Gamer's Edition of the Guinness World Records. If you're a fan of the Guinness World Records series or just love video games, this book is for you. The Guinness World Records Gamer's Edition book is very similar to the regular "World Record" books, but this one has records of gaming such as high scores, sale records and other high ranking stats. Facts like that "Tomb Raider is the most successful video game-based movie" and "World of Warcraft is the most popular MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) with 9.3 million subscribers to date. The good news is there's going to be a 2009 edition, so be on the look out for that, if you like the 2008 edition.
