  1. My brother got violently assaulted and mugged by thugs yesterday. Sometimes I want to move out of this area, but we have no means of doing so...

      I'm very sorry to hear that. I hope he is okay and that those jerks get served justice.

      Holy crap, I'm sorry this had to happen to him. I wish he was able to stay safe in your home with you, but I assume where he works at or goes to isn't as strict about quarintine rules.

  2. Just 100%ed Banjo-Kazooie!

     

    (If you remember my status updates from last year, I started again on Rare Replay so I can lead into Banjo-Tooie 😄)

  3. I'm curious - Did anyone else see an advert for Team Sonic Racing in the cinema before the Sonic movie? I don't know if it was just an Odeon thing or not.

     

     

    (The advert seemed to work well though, because all the children in the audience were talking about what consoles it was on and trying to work out if they could have it :P)

      I saw Sonic at VUE and yeah they played a TSR ad there (was neat that they used Frozen Junkyard as the backing music for it, typically adverts tend to use some royalty-free nonsense)

    2. NegaMetallix

      They played it at Cineworld when I went, too.

      @JezMM Yeah, pretty much every TV ad I've seen for TSR (even back when it was relevant) uses Frozen Junkyard as the background music.

      I saw it at an Omniplex, and got both an ad for TSR, and an ad for Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games. Given those were the only game adverts, and were one after another, I'd imagine it's on purpose.

      Then I go on the opposite way and say I recall seeing none.

      I mean, Sonic never had a marketing here so people mostly knew about new releases via fansites and the games in store, with the exception of the Sonic movie which really had a marketing relatable with a major Star Wars release, for example.

      Still, it was possible to see kids reaction, for example, when the 2D animation showed I see someone saying "Look, it's Sonic Mania!", though he might not even know what it actually means for the series (For bringing back a game style we didn't saw since S3&K".

  6. When I was little, I had a VHS tape full of Christmas specials my parents had recorded from me. A lot of the usual suspects were on there, The Snowman, Father Christmas, The Bear...and then there was this strange stop motion film, involving a little child who built his own grandma out of bits and pieces. I don't remember there being much dialogue in it beyond the boy saying 'Georgia', which I assume was the name he had given to his creation. I also remember a scene involving iceskating over a frozen garden pond. My best guess is that the film was from some European country, although I never noticed at the time. My brother has about the same memories of the film as I do, except he thinks that he film was a litlte bit creepy (I cleraly never thought so, as I watched the tape a lot). About the only thing I can think of doing to recover it is digging out the VHS player and going through old tapes until it shows up, but I have no idea if my search would be fruitful. Online searches come up with nothing, and I keep thinking of bringing it up whenever there's a 'Christmas Specials' thread. It would be nice to find out its source, and finally see it again. I have a few other examples (both short stories rather than TV specials), but I'll keep it as this for now.
  7. Yeah. The Game Gear version is badly cropped, and unlike the Sonic 1 port, they made little effort to re balance the game to compromise, making an ordinary tame opening boss barely winnable. I was fortunate enough to have the Master System version as a kid, but I still couldn't get past act 3 because I didn't realise you could make Sonic break walls by rolling and couldn't even reach the antlion (like I said in the last post, I was six). I always had more luck playing 8-bit Sonic 1 instead, which was what actually got me into the games. Not sure I'd still be here if my only experience with the franchise was SMS Sonic 2, but I have fond memories of it all the same.
  8. The Underground Zone was my first ever experience with a Sonic game, so it's a nice surprise hearing it getting some love! While I was never a big fan of the zone itself (I couldn't get past Act 3 and six year old me wondered why Sonic was in a slow minecart), I've always loved the music. The 8-bit Sonic games are underated in general, and if they ever do another Sonic Mania or Generations style revist of the classic games, I'd love to see more of this*! *Of course, I'd always settle for new content, too
  9. Oh well, at least the Smash Direct being so crushingly dissapointing is an excuse to concentrate on my degree. That's what I needed, right?


    (Seriously though, yikes)

  10. I'm a day late, but here is Sega Amusements Christmas image this year!

  11. It was great fun getting to be part of the Twitch chat as the Sonic 3 Prototype was revealed!

  12. Don't know if anyone's mentioned this already, but there's a Sonic sale on Steam at the minute. All titles are 75% off, except TSR, which is 66% off. If you're missing out on any titles on PC, now seems like a good time.

    I'm pretty sure they set this up because Sonic is on everyone's minds at the minute.... :P

  13. Okay, this is cute

  14. To be honest, I think it's a problem/feature of the Dreamcast mod. It seems to make the whole thing easier to pull off, so it just sort of happens if you're flying recklessly in the pool area.
  15. Once my brother locked Sonic 2 onto Sonic and Knuckles, but clearly didn't make a strong enough connection. The result was Emerald Hill as Knuckles, but there was no music, and the only sound effect was the Metropolis Zone record scratch, which would inconsistantly play when Knuckles bopped a Badnik. At the end of the act, the game froze. In Sonic 3 (standalone) , I somehow managed to get the music stuck on the invinsibility theme during a run of Carnival Night (I'd used a regular monitor pickup). I had to intentionally start to drown Sonic and then leave the water in order to and make the annoying jingle shut up! I've also found that if you do the same trick during Hydrocity's Act 1 boss, the music will change to Sonic & Knuckles' miniboss theme. In my latest playthrough of Sonic Adventure DX, I kept repeatedly pulling off the Tails in Emerald Coast glitch unintentionally.
