RadarPlays - Sonic Spinball

Welcome back to Radar Plays Retro on its new schedule, which is every other Wednesday. For this week we dug up one of Sonic's first spin-offs, Sonic Spinball. The pinball title had some nice jollies, but it also has one of the most painfully metallic soundtracks in gaming history. Speaking of painful, this video might be hard to watch because GamesRadar editor Henry Gilbert isn't very good at the game. Fortunately he has the relatively better Lucas Sullivan and Ryan Taljonick to back him up.

Want to hang out with GamesRadar's editors while taking a look at retro games, new releases, and totally random experiences? RadarPlays is for you. Every Wednesday, we'll help you get over the hump with the blasts from the past in RadarPlays Retro or the bizarre obscurities of RadarPlays Freaky. We'll also release RadarPlays for new releases whenever they come out, so be sure to check back!

    Nooo new schedule makes me sad. :( Oh well, it's better than nothing. This was a fun video, but man, that game is just overall unpleasant. Unpleasant to look at, unpleasant to listen to, and looks unpleasant to "play."

    First paragraph, fourth line down, you should have "isn't very good." At first I thought it was supposed to be sarcastic but the following sentence shows that it's incorrect. Every other Wednesday? D: Better than nothing though!
