Luckily I received my first ever and only Sonic game (excellent condition S&K) for my first Genesis I bought and have had sitting around for 2 years and finally got to play a Sonic game on a genesis for the first time. I know, shocking, but I've found more convenience in playing everything on PC or phone rather than getting the original thing. I'll snag a copy of Sonic 3 pretty soon as well. Anyway, Happy 25th Birthday Sonic, my life wouldn't be the same without you. My childhood was all about S&K Collection.
And this video from the Official YouTube Account (it was already posted in the other thread)
Well, that's something at least. Even though the video says that there will be some surprises for Sonic's anniversary.
...which is today.
EDIT: By the way, it's kind of weird when they keep saying that Sonic's original name was "Mr. Needlemouse" when the correct translation of "Mr. Harinezumi" is just "Mr. Hedgehog"... There's really no other source to it than the wrong translation in that old Bad Attitude program, is there?

So I'm celebrating the blue blur's 25th anniversary now. Just got off of work, so I couldn't celebrate while I was there. I'm listening to Quartz Quadrant present off the Japanese soundtrack, and debating on if I should play a game, or work on a hacking project to celebrate. Long live Sonic, without the very first game I wouldn't have been the gamer I am today.
I played through the StealthTax 1-2 releases on an Android emulator today. Might fire up CD as well.
I have an odd craving to also play through Sonic R of all things.
Too bad none of these 25th anniversary videos are truly comprehensive. I'd love to see one that mentions all the mobile games as well as mainline ones. So much of my fun with the franchise was spent in the Game Gear games and Advance series that it's sad to see they're never remembered anymore.
Boy I feel dumb. For some reason I thought it was the 21st and I even posted something to my Instagram account about it on that day. And then this morning I see all sorts of 25th anniversary stuff and I was just like ._.
But I digress. Happy 25th anniversary to the character and franchise that has given me and many others years of good games, shitty games, memes, and furry porn. I would celebrate by playing Sonic Generations but since my desktop is fucked and I don't feel like waiting for Steam to download the game on here, I'll just hook up the Genesis and play the original on that for a bit.
