    JonoD got a reaction from Snowragnarok in The Giant Sonic Statue In The Mountains Has Been Restored!   
    What's great about this is that looking at the kind of paint that's been used (and going on similarities to the old Sonic statue that was outside Sonic's Spinball at Alton Towers) is that the statue's now going to be weatherproof to a degree as well.
    Assuming the supports it's on hold well, that statue's set for a while I'd say.

    JonoD got a reaction from Big Panda in Animated Christmas specials   
    Without a doubt my best Christmas film of all time. There's just something incredibly endearing about the character being a believable, grumpy old northerner.¬†ūüė謆Kind of makes that heart of gold all the more apparent when it comes out.
     
    Some of my own to add.
    One film I frequently watched with my sisters around Christmas was the movie "Rudolph the Movie". It's a unique, oddly well produced musical movie which is a fun Rudolph origin story. Plenty of problems though, don't get me wrong. I rather like it though given it pretty much goes into and covers off each verse in the song in a fun and interesting way. Also... the movie in its entirety is online!
     
    Next is a wildcard. It kinda fits into the "Die Hard" classification of Christmas movie in that it's not specifically about Christmas, but it takes place around Christmas, and I love to watch around Christmas time - "Why Charlie Brown? Why?"
     It's a Peanuts film/PSA about leukemia/cancer and it's a genuinely heartwarming watch. There's little footage of the movie online anymore, but I implore anyone to check it out if they can. The ending still gets me every time.

    Oh boy. Time to dust this thread off once again.
    Let's just take a moment to talk about Sonic Mega Collection. I don't think I've seen the music for this compilation listed anywhere in this thread.
    Whilst every song in the game is pleasant, 3 songs in this are simply sublime. They are as follows:
    and finally, this piece of audio-gasmicness.
     
    This last piece... This last piece of music just gives me a true warmth every time I listen to it. I even remember when I first got 'Mega Collection Plus' on the PS2 and went to the game select screen for the first time and heard this. It was somehow the most nostalgic song I'd ever listened to even though I'd never heard it before.

    I say. Does that confirm blue spheres as the special stage? That's definitely an optimised-for-widescreen version and a different shade of Sonic in that pic!

    I bet a lot of people on here have forgotten Weston Super Sonic is happening... and in just a couple of days!!!
     
    Myself and JonoD are planning a little pre-convention meetup at the CEX cafe on Friday 15th at 2:30pm. A more relaxed environment where we can have coffee and cake, play some video games and have a chat with those of you in the area! We've also got a small handful of goodies we've love to give out to those of you that can make it!
     
    For those of you that can't make it to the pre-convention meetup, we hope to see you on Saturday! We've got an exciting line up for the day, with workshops from Duncan Gutteridge, Ferran Rodriguez and a chat with SonicpoX about his work! We've also got a mystery reveal from First 4 Figures again, as well as a live Ask Uncle Poxxy, hosted by The Sonic Show.
     
    We've got a huge number of exhibitors this year compared to last year, ranging from general Sonic Merchandise to artwork made by very talented artists, as well as one of our exhibitors making some amazing sonic head cushions!
     
    We may have even more in store! Hope to see you there!

    JonoD reacted to Badnik Mechanic in Sonic's speed   
    Or how about this... We don't bug dev's through their personal channels?
    People started bugging Sumo Digital staff about stuff then positing private conversations. They now don't engage with fans as much and one had to delete tons of people from his Facebook list.
    The current Sonc writers also no longer deal with fans due to the amount of harassment.
    And this is without getting into that lady who worked on Sonic 2, the Roger Craig smith death threats and the bullshit that the SA3 facebook group does.
    So remind me again why we should say to people that this kind of stuff is ok?

    We have less than 24 hours until this year's WSS Kickstarter funding ends! We're just £66 away from our £1600 goody bag stretch goal! Can you help us help every backer get goody bags?!
    We still have plenty of rewards left, including t-shirts, pin badges, tickets and a few of last year's goody bags!
    Meanwhile we've been chatting with our special guests, so expect an update on that soon! We're working with them on trying to set up something quite special.

    Would it be possible to see a sample before I hit that download link?
    I don't want to seem paranoid, but I wouldn't mind seeing both the font and the package contents of what it is I'm downloading

    JonoD reacted to Diz in Foxtail   
    That is very nice of you to support the game. No doubt this is going to be awesome, judging by the clip provided. A little something I do miss is an introduction about what this topic is about, as other than a link, I know nothing unless I click the link and read about it off-site myself. We like to have an introduction laid out in the opening post so that we can set an example/point. Allow me to give your topic a kick-start!
    Foxtail is a new game in progress, clearly inspired by old legends such as Monkey Island. If you are unfamiliar with those kind of games, they are basically pixellated adventures where you interact with the environment by pointing and clicking. This tends to involve talking to strangers to gain information, searching for objects, solving puzzles, exploring new areas and uncovering the story.
    Foxtail takes you back to the good old feel of those games while introducing you to the world of anthropomorphism where you will play as Leah, a fox who escapes city life and is on her way to a mountain village far away, but she is also troubled with a deep and personal story which you will have to unveil during gameplay. When I watched the trailer, I was left with a good impression. The game really wants to take you along with the main character out into the wilderness and appeal to how you feel at those times when you simply want to get away from everything while allowing the beautiful and silent scenery to meditate your mind.
    I cannot say that I have been a big fan of these games, but the trailer makes me want to try Foxtail once it releases. You can see a lot of work and heart is being put into the project. I have started to really enjoy games which use feelings and storytelling for immersion. I know a lot of people do not enjoy pixellated games, but I think they are creative and have a lot to offer. Besides, pixellated graphics has a charm in itself, don't you think? What are your feelings on the project so far, and will you play this game upon release, even donate? All I can say is that Foxtail definitely looks promising!

    And in one fell swoop...

    Weston Super Sonic has hit its funding goal!
    We're amazed. Thank you to everybody who has donated thus far! We have the means to host the event! If the donations keep up, we can afford to bring in some great guests and more! Right now, we're batting at £1156, which puts us not far away from being able to add a further two guests to our lineup
    People will be wanting to hear who we've got in mind for our guests, but be assured that you will be finding out soon.
    Thanks again everybody!
