    So, Classic Sonic art appears in SEGA's SpikeOut. But there's something different about this piece...

    ...well, I'll be. The usual version of this art for comparison:

      It also looks like he's showing his teeth.

      Aye, differences are:

      - Adventure shading

      - Different mouth

      BAWW GREEN EYES

      Back when they wanted Sonic to be just one entity...

      His muzzle also seems to be a bit narrower and slightly less round too.

  2. Finally uploaded footage of Sonic's cameo in Le Mans 24; the first good quality footage of it on Youtube! Also includes the correct unlock method.

      That's weird...the credits never gave thanks to Sonic Team or someone from there despite using the character. Even SegaSonic the Hedgehog gave special thanks to Ohshima. 

      Wonder if they snuck Sonic's playable appearance in there without Sonic Team knowing.

    On the topic of racing, here's Sonic's obscure cameo in SEGA's Le Mans 24h. It's like a Dreamcast version of his Sonic R model...

      Haha, never knew this existed. It's always interesting to see more.

  4. Puyo Tetris can't be released here. Ubisoft own the Tetris license in the West.

    Suddenly; new Puyo Puyo game! Puyo Puyo Chronicle, a 3DS RPG has been announced. Celebrating the series' 25th Anniversary.

      for gods sake don't let BioWare touch it

      Oh don't worry, VEDJ, it won't even be released in the West.

      There's actually a fair chance of this coming West, given SoA's recent localisation record.

    Suffice to say, Summer of Sonic was crazy. Excuse the blurriness.

      Sounds like a 3D BLAST!

    Now presenting the best idea for a Sonic Mania Special Stage; stick Sonic in Super Hang-On. Sorted. 

  8. Sonic Adventure's original Japanese release has plenty of differences. Notable ones: Cowgirl sign in Casinopolis that moans when you touch it. Uh, yeah. Casinopolis had no ball counter, and you couldn't shake the table. Bit naff. Sonic has a blur effect on his feet, similar to the classic games. Trial Mode's level select is sorted by Internal Level IDs of all things, something I only realised upon looking up the game's debug mode level table. Utterly bizarre. Finally of note, you can stand on the Burger Man statue; which allows Amy to use it as a platform for her hammer jump... ...and access Casinopolis without cheats. It has a somewhat unique level layout (it's mostly Sonic's version, but with the Sonic statue from Knuckles' version present) and it's fully functional (besides the pinball tables, which do work surprisingly well, just with no pinball physics). It's possible to complete it, as the mech-arms in the vault do work; but the game crashes after the result screen.

    New Sonic Channel comic, in which it's revealed how Shadow got his name.

      I know I'm a picky piece of shit but wasn't it due to the project being called Project Shadow?

  10. Good to see he still hasn't figured out how to run in Lost World... Anywho, there is one hefty detail missing from this; PagodaWest also have a history in Sonic. Particularly a little fan-project called Sonic 2 HD. Much of Pagoda's staff (perhaps even all, I'm not 100%) worked on the first iteration of S2HD, before L0st's DRM nonsense got it canned. Other than that... it's a video, I guess.
  11. This is incredibly common, I'm afraid; the Game Gear is known for being failure-prone. It's to do with the capacitors, if I recall. I have two of the things, and neither work properly; all I can recommend is find a service that can fix it (I think friends have had some luck on eBay, but I'd ask around).
  12. The Nise one I posted does, it just has the 2 + 3 from those games' logos included as extras.
  13. Ha, cool throwback to S3&K; Flying Battery had a couple of Special Stage rings accessed in a similar manner, if I recall. Also that ring animation gives me the strongest SotN/NitM vibes: WE SEGA SATURN NOW, BABY
  14. You're not going to find an official release; and even if there were, it'd cost hundreds, possibly thousands. NiseSEGASonic gets the job done for me: http://actselect.chips.jp/fonts/06.htm
