Detective SSMB & The Case of the Sonic 25th Anniversary "P.g. 100 is the best... food discussion started."

Recommended Posts

@Continued talk of the lyrics

Hmm. Perhaps it's referencing things related to Sonic we've heard in the past two months and giving signs of what's to come in the future? It seems very vague and i wonder if it connects to the previous Madeon-related ARG.

So we can pretty accurately lay out the timeframe of events over the coming months now.

21st March - likely nothing happening

1st April - Big's Big Fishing Adventure 3 (most likely a joke)

LONG SPAN OF NOTHING

July 22nd - New Sonic game announced

September 27th - Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice released

October - New Sonic game released

Big is April 1 and I doubt it's a joke. Probably a browser game.

Well yeah. But given how the recent months played out I find it better to not get so hung up on what he meant by those words.

There's nothing cryptic about what he said. He said there was no promise of any announcement for new games at the 25th Anniversary event. It's a cut-and-dry reminder not to have that expectation in mind when visiting.

Whup, yeah, sorry. As a Brit, I get confused by the American reversal of dates. Plus, I'm half-asleep right now.

Fixed.

Anyone notice the greek characters in the background?

"Ρεδ ηερρνγ"

Google translate says this means "Red ierring"

Maybe he meant Red Herring?

Edit:  In case anyone doesn't know what a red herring is, it's when someone leads you into a misleading direction about something, in an attempt to distract you from what is really going on.

I don't think I was saying what he said was cryptic. Quite the opposite. Don't expect what you want to expect to happen there. And yeah that's literally what people should get by what you said. Was just tripped up by what you were trying to say, as usual lol.

Anyway this 'SEGA Retrospective' looks like a regurgitation of the panel from earlier, likely with the Q&A they wasn't able to fit into the panel earlier.

Yes that is Red Herring. The letters are greek. Basically Aaron spelled red herring with greek letters.

Just watching the Recap session they're doing and they've hit the announcements section again.

"Nothing is going to happen on 4/1"

"NOTHING is going to happen on 4/1"

"No but seriously nothing's going to happen on 4/1 so please don't expect anything"

I see.

It's over. It was said to be a SEGA retrospective but they literally just went through the retrospective again in a slightly more casual manner, even using the same slideshow.

There wasn't anything new actually revealed mind you.

Well, there were no new announcements. But they did go into more detail with the interviews, and questions that weren't asked during the panel were asked there.

So. Wait. Hold on. Holy shit. I just fucking realized something.

Sonic 25th is going to be classic centric. The series is going back to its roots, yet again.

We see the return of Ben Kalough, he's apparently alive. Significant numbers are a 4 and a 3.

"Red herring" is one of the hints just recently dropped.

Are you seriously fucking telling me that the 25th anniversary game is Sonic 4 Episode III?

Not this again. Anyway, Sonic 4 features Sonic with his Adventure-onwards design, so what kind of "classic" game would that be?

All right then, what's your bright suggestion then? Why are things like Ben Kalough being brought back? Why was Red Herring one of the hints? What's with the 4 and the 3?

I don't have a suggestion. I'm simply waiting for actual news about whatever Sonic game we get, and I just don't think it's very likely that a downloadable installment in a series few people like will be the big Sonic game of the year (or even be released at all).

And please don't insult me.

If you want to be really pedantic, the red herring never actually ended up being for anything so it in of itself was a red herring for Hedgehog Day 2013. If you were to connect it to any game it'd be Lost World which we found out about a few months afterwards.
