Another curiosity is that the SCHG/SA Music wiki page has an entry for "nights_k". I don't have any trace of a "nights_k" file at all while I do have "nights_a" and "nights_s" from the DC and GC versions.

"nights_k" is probably supposed to be Dreams Dreams Kids version. Most likely intended for DLC like the other versions.

Ever wondered what Sonic 1 would sound like with musical cues from The Price is Right? Well, wonder no more!

May as well click the link since I didn't cut the video down and this way you can see what all the cues are and quick links to when they start playing.

Wow. Somehow, these tunes fit awesomely well. This is Great.

EDIT: This also reminds me of soundtracks old 80's anime and cartoons had, lol

Why do Australians say "See-ga" and not "Say-gah"? I just watched an Australian Master System ad and it was driving me nuts that they kept saying "See-ga". After a bit of reading, his pronunciation isn't unique.

Well, my Mom told me that its called "See-ga" in Italy because "Say-gah" means "Masterbate" there.

Not sure about Australia though.

To be fair I've heard Americans say "Mee-ga" for Mega. MEEGA MAN

Beta = Bee-tah or Bay-tah depending where you're from.

I don't know much about the English language but I think all of these terms are either fictional (in Sega's case) or adopted from Greek, and I'm not sure if there's precise rules in place to handle these terms.

There were UK "See-gah" adverts too (and maybe US ones for the Master System?) and my impression is that this was always the intended pronuncation. Then Sonic came along and literally taught us how to say it and it's stuck like that ever since. Some people were a little late or where misinformed so there's the occasional bit of media that gets it wrong.

Except in Japan where it's always been "say-gah".

I'd say the pronunciation of the Sega scream is the correct one, especially since it's how it'd be pronounced if read as if it was a Japanese word (not to mention its kana writing seems to confirm this), which would make sense given it's a Japanese company (it's also how it's pronounced when going by Spanish rules, so I had even less issues with that =P).

Was it Doc Eggfan who said we should pronounce it "sir gay" because of the whole Service Games thing? I should start doing that.

Y'know, I was thinking the exact same thing, somehow. I wonder how the pronunciation of SURvice GAYmes started being pronounced SAY-GAH anyway? Perhaps it has something to do with how 'Service Games' is pronounced in different languages, like Japanese for instance (I don't know how it would be pronounced there, so I could be way off on that assumption).

The only human bands I'd think would be worthy of mention in Speed Highway would be Crush 40, so that's my bet? Dunno.

Well, Sega comes out of SErvice GAmes. It's not an abbreviation, it's a new word derived from the first two letters of service and games. Maybe if they company's name was Sergame it'd make more sense for the "proper" pronunciation to be sir-gay.

Can anyone identify the game boot screen featured at 0:27? I think it's a Sega CD game, but that's as far as I've gotten.

Correct. I ended up putting that screen in my hack ages ago, although I edited the art a bit.

Posted Image

However, it's not a SEGA CD game, just a Mega Drive/Genesis game. Although, I think there was a Game Gear version as well, which used the same screen.


Edit:After wasting my time and watching that entire video, I notice the first version of that is the Game Gear version, the MD/Genesis version shows up later in that video at around 5:05.

So I've been browsing GDRI

http://gdri.smspower...tware/Polygames
http://gdri.smspower...rview:Lee_Actor
apparently Polygames did most of the coding for Sonic Spinball

Is this well-known here, though? I didn't see it on the wiki except for the production credits section...
