Can't stay quiet on this one.

Hello there, everyone! Almost 10 days late, but happy 25th anniversary guys (in 360's case, happy birthday to you, buddy).
So, I guess this is the most interesting anniversary to date. Fans are thirsty for a new mainstream Sonic game for almost 2 years and all they receive is "TP/Tape/whatever-you-call-it BOOM!", Sega comes up with the "Free Money" strategy, Sonic Team makes "Ads with a little bit of Sonic", only for it to bring failure, and for Sega to shut it down, and now this; 25th anniversary comes by, and not a single thing from Sega!

And on top of it all for me, my hard drive, along with my priceless collection of... like... every Sonic (and Sega) game, died. All I could do was to backup from a few disc images I had. Now I have to start recollecting them from the very beginning again. What drives me crazy more than anything else is my completed save files. It just took me one month to finish S3K with all 9 endings. I had collected all 130 emblems in SADX, completed ShTH with all 11 endings, ...!!!


Things just keep getting better and better! 5th and 15th anniversaries might've been bad, but THIS IS TERRIBLE!!!!
Get ready for another great anniversary with the number "5" in it to disappoint everyone for the third time, guys!!!!!!!

:ssh:

Eh, for the purpose of that joke, when I think of Sonic's 5th anniversary, I think of Sonic 3D. But I like Sonic 3D, for some reason.

I associate Sonic's 5th anniversary with Sonic CD, since nobody owned a Mega CD that PC release counts. :v:/>

Not only that, but it lets me say that every fifth anniversary has introduced a new hedgehog and featured time manipulation in some form, aside from the original game:
1991 - Sonic the Hedgehog - Sonic
1996 - Sonic CD - Metal Sonic, time travel via checkpoints
2001 - Sonic Adventure 2 - Shadow, time freezing via switches, Chaos Control in 2-player
2006 - Sonic the Hedgehog - Silver, story revolves around time travel
2011 - Sonic Generations - Classic Sonic, story revolves around Time Eater
2016 - ???


Anyway, my 25th Anniversary celebration was this:

Me too, for some reason. I hope this anniversary Sega will stop the 'good-bad' scheme.

But anyways, I celebrated by playing the Dreamcast games, listening to some of the soundtrack, and I played a bit of Sonic '06 (oddly enough, it's the only Sonic game I have right know on my PS3; might plan on downloading Unleashed off PSN).
I was also planning on making a medley tribute, featuring some music from all the games, but unfortunately, that didn't go as planned. The laptop that had all my saved work had gotten a BSOD, and I have to wait for a way to fix it. However, I might still consider putting the plan back into action.

Oh man, you got INSIDE this game, DD. Whole time I was thinking, "Oh my god, what is he going to break next?"

I bought a foot-long chili dog, slapped in Sonic the Hedgehog, and went to town.


Just wanted to say you had an awesome way of celebrating the anniversary. I would have done something similar if there was a Chilli Dog vendor nearby.

Well, I was going to replay Sonic 1 Android for the anniversary, but at the time I didn't want to have to work for the emeralds since I've only got 4 zones at max to get them all (I normally don't get enough rings in Labyrinth Zone so lol). I'm chipping away at the game every now and then now, but after 2 failed special stages in a row, my motivation is shot.
