Bucket List Gamers

In unlucky Episode 13 of the Bucket List Gamers the subject of our attention is none other than Sega's iconic mascot Sonic!

In terms of the list we are carefully considering, and ranking Sonic 1 (28), Sonic 2 (14) and Sonic 3 & Knuckles (75)! But we don't stop there, discussing the 3D offerings, the cartoons, the entire Sonic Game Gear library, the Blue Blur's appearances in Nintendo games and why you should never lick a Switch cartridge.

Trust us, it all ties together... sort of. We also talk about the time Tails dies...

Just remember when it comes to Sonic... it's Robotnik, never... and we mean NEVER... Eggman!

Creators & Guests

Having been friends since college, when Jay revealed plans for what would later become BLG, Eddie jumped at the chance to be involved. Eddie has been a gamer for as long as anyone can remember, citing The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask as his favourite of all time.
Coming from a writing background, having spent over a decade running WWEBlog, Jay decided it was time to go in a different direction. That direction was gaming and thus the Bucket List Gamers (and Bucket List Board Gamers) were born!

What is Bucket List Gamers?

Each show we take a look at one of the '100 Games to play before you die', as well as discussing the latest releases, consoles, successes and scandals in the gaming world.

From Defender to Daytona, Mario to Metroid and Sonic to Street Fighter, if it's in the 100 the BLG team will play it... eventually!
