  1. Another 80 years and 5 minutes till the new century.

  2. I was going to say Emerald Coast from Sonic Adventure but it's already been done so Twinkle Park is a better choice, also Metropolis Zone from Sonic 2.
  3. So if the PC tracks of Sonic 3 were ment to be in the original version, why did they change them to the MJ tracks? 

    1. Thigolf


      The whole thing is very confusing on why they'd do any of this.

      Sega being Sega, probably.

      The only reason I can think is that they just liked the MJ ones better and didn't think ahead to what might happen music rights wise.

    2. TheOcelot


      I'd imagine SEGA liked MJ's tracks better and most of the MJ music does sound better IMO.


      I get the feeling after MJ was no longer involved with composing Sonic 3's music SEGA felt they owned the music/that they had every right to use the samples which MJ's team had provided.

      @Thigolf And thus "one of the reasons" why Sonic 3 hasn't appeared in a compilation in over 10 years.

      I had that feeling they like MJ's tracks better, a decision they had regretted.

      It was probably supposed to be a marketing thing. But considering they kept quiet about it instead and he's not credited in the game, either they changed their minds about bragging about how they got MJ to do some music for them (very unlikely!) but liked the tracks enough to keep them or, as some have speculated, he asked not to be credited. This wouldn't be the only time he did that either apparently, so that seems plausible to me I guess.

      Basically they may have screwed over rereleasing this game in the future with a marketing stunt that, for whatever reason, they didn't actually take advantage of publicly. lol

  4. I wonder how many more prototypes of Sonic 2 or any other classic games are there?

    1. JezMM


      I mean, TECHNICALLY hundreds, unless developers choose to delete them or throw them away, a pre-release version of a game's ROM will be generated pretty much any time they need to test something, especially back in those days, though I assume notable milestones in the development are better preserved (such as whatever state the game was in when it was time to send out preview versions for events or press).

      ...Or such is my understanding.

      Of course, the value of such a wide array of prototypes varies depending on what was changed compared to other prototypes we have access to.  So for example that famous Simon Wai Sonic 2 prototype, maybe somewhere out there there's a version of the ROM from a few days after that prototype, and while it would be cool to dig into it, ultimately the findings might be as simple as "Well it's exactly the same as the Simon Wai prototype but this one glitch has been fixed."

      I think the big problem was the cost of storage back then. Those hundreds of builds could have been across the same few carts for internal work.

    3. Celestia


      I just wanna know if there's any CD builds that have anything R2-related. The only in-game thing we've seen are enemy and Eggman sprites, so it's possible they didn't get any work done on the level itself...but I want to believe...

  5. Pokemon headcannon.

    What if... Professor Oak is secretly bangin... I mean, sleeping, with Ash's (Satoshi) Mum, while he is traveling?

  6. @Ryannumber1gamer Changed 2 of my requests, they now: Sonic After the Sequel: Horizion Heights Act 1 And for remix Aosth Dr. Robotnik theme remix by Proudone (I know I've edited my op on requests but just to be sure)
  7. Here we go again. 1.Sonic 2 Metropolis Zone 2.Sonic CD Wacky Workbench Present (JP/EU) 3.Sonic Adventure Crank the heat up... For Final Egg 4.Sonic After the Sequel Horizon Heights Zone Act 1 For the remix (if it counts) Dr Robotnik theme (Aosth) remix by Proudone
  8. Well this so far has been an interesting week for gaming, and will get even more interesting next week.

  9. Back from watching Avengers Endgame.

  10. In the cinemas to see Avengers Endgame today

  11. Well, 5 more episodes to go, and by the looks on the episode titles, this is where shit gets real.
  12. "New stuff keeps getting found in Sonic 2 beta ROMs"

    Goddamn, how much shit was removed in Sonic 2 in the final release?

    1. TheOcelot


      Sonic 2 changed a lot throughout development and a lot of content had to be cut to meet the Christmas 1992 release window.

    2. Solister


      Has been anything new found?

  13. 5 month old fact: Red Dead Redemption 2 is so big not even a single blu ray disc (which holds up to 45 Gigs of storage) can hold all that data when installing.

  14. Well only 9 episodes to go now for season 1, so what can we excpect for the season finale (If it gets a second season)?
