Summer Of Sonic Reloaded? Sonic Wrecks Teams Up With The London Gaming Con For Sonic Shennanagins

On the weekend of December 3rd and 4th Sonic Wrecks will be a very active part of the London Gaming Convention.  Which promises to turn into an (almost) last hurrah for Sonic’s 20th year – and is poised to have a Summer of Sonic-esque feel to it as ourselves and others from the Sonic Community are penciled in to help out.

The event, which will include both Anime and Games and is open to those 18+ only, will feature  a variety of showcase events, gaming tournaments and guests. These including Summer of Sonic performer (and former Community Spotlight interviewee) Zonic, internet personality and musician Brentalfloss, prolific video-game composer  Tim Wright – better known as CoLD SToRAGE and Nintendisco will be keeping it old school as well.

Sonic Wrecks will be in attendance (unless anything drastic happens, which given the year so far for me personally, I wouldn’t rule out) to run several events on the Super-Sonic-Sunday including the Sonic Pub Quiz and Sonic Blindfolded event which will test users to see how successful they are at Green Hill Zone whilst sightless. We’ll also be helping out with evening par-tay festivities.

As well as being a Sonic-theme day, the Sunday of London Gaming Con is a special-discount day!
