Topics I've Started
26 February 2009 - 07:02 PMI read a hilarious effort to put all the Mario games in a chronological timeline. While Sonic games aren't that clear cut, sometimes it seems like certain games come after others. Well, I put in the effort to drop EVERY non-paper Sonic title into a timeline. It's retarded as hell and not serious but give it a read. If you think anything is certainly wrong with this order let me know. There are a number of games like Sonic Eraser where point in time simply can't be determined. While I include games where Sonic himself makes an appearance, I did not include those where he appears as merchandise. If I missed any video games or cartoons let me know, but I'm not touching any written or drawn publications.
From earliest to latest chronologically:
A young Sonic travels his home land and frees the local animals from Dr. Robotnik and destroys his ultimate creation, the Scrap Brain. Sonic stumbles upon the Chaos Emeralds and learns to keep them out of Dr. Robotnik's hands, even though he doesn't know their true power. (Sonic the Hedgehog (Both 8-bit and 16-bit))
Sonic enters a labyrinth of Dr. Robotnik's creation in which his speed is lost. Sonic challenges and defeats the labyrinth. (Sonic Labyrinth)
In a hall of mosaic tiles, Sonic must face off in a challenge of both body and mind against a mirror image of himself. (Sonic Eraser)
Dr. Robotnik builds and island base. Sonic arrives with two companions who are Sonic's perfect match in speed, clothing, and technique. Sonic destroys the island, and his two companions mysteriously disappear making Sonic presumably the fastest thing left alive. (SegaSonic Arcade)
Sonic discovers a small planet where time changes. He saves a young Amy Rose who develops a crush on him. He drives Metal Sonic and Dr. Robotnik off the planet and restores peace on it. (Sonic CD)
Tails grows up and develops an interest in mechanics and aeronautics. He also develops a hatred for Dr. Robotnik. (Tails' Adventures, Tails' Skypatrol, Tails and the Music Maker)
Dr. Robotnik begins building a new robotic force and several factories. He and his robots discover magical beans which become a popular meal. (Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine)

Sonic enters Dr. Robotnik's pinball machine-like base where several friendly animals are held captive. (Sonic Spinball)
Sonic and Tails join a group of peaceful reformists who Sonic recently rescued. They live in the forest and peacefully fight for freedom against Dr. Robotnik through protests and eventually guerilla warfare. The efforts are futile and Sonic and Tails realize to take up arms in direct opposition. (Sonic the Hedgehog (Saturday Morning Cartoon))
Dr. Robotnik acquires a chaos emerald and creates powerful weapons with it. Sonic and Tails end his budding plans for world domination. (Sonic Chaos, aka Sonic & Tails)
Sonic and Tails destroy Dr. Robotnik's life work, the Death Egg. They destroy Silver Sonic and the Death Egg. Sonic collects the seventh Chaos Emerald and learns to use their power. He keeps them with him rather than allowing them to wander free. (Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (Mega Drive / Genesis))
Sonic and Tails go exploring strange lands traveling on the Tornado. (Crusader of Centy, Wacky Worlds)
Sonic and Tails discover an island with strange ruins where rings are plentiful and have odd effects when held. (Sonic Crackers)
Sonic arrives at Angel Island. He meets Knuckles the Echidna, who has the ability to knock Chaos Emeralds out of a user. Robotnik and Knuckles appear to be working together. Robotnik's presence on the island sets Sonic and Tails off on a quest to once again liberate the locals, regain the Chaos Emeralds, and prevent Dr. Robotnik from launching a new and improved Death Egg. Knuckles escapes, but mid-launch Sonic and Tails narrowly stop Robotnik and the launch fails, crashing the Death Egg into the island. Sonic and Tails bring their emeralds searching for Knuckles, who is the only person Sonic has met with knowledge of the Chaos Emeralds. (Sonic the Hedgehog 3)
Sonic discovers the Super Emeralds which Knuckles was trying to conceal. Knuckles continues to work with Robotnik and fight Sonic. In a twist, the Death Egg is still intact ready to launch and Robotnik betrays Knuckles by stealing the Master Emerald. Knuckles assists Sonic and Tails in getting to the Death Egg in the upper atmosphere via Sky Sanctuary. Sonic fights off Mecha Sonic and using the Super Emeralds defeats Dr. Robotnik and returns the Master Emerald to the Angel Island. Knuckles moves the Emerald altar to the surface of the island. The emeralds are allowed to returned to the special stages, where they will hide until they are again needed. (Sonic & Knuckles (Sonic's Side))
The remaining robots on Angel Island go haywire and mimic the actions of their previous master. Weather this is a malfunction or a remote desperation revenge attack by Dr. Robotnik is unclear. Knuckles, determined to solve the problem on his island by himself this time, enters mortal combat with Mecha Sonic and once again saves the island and the Master Emerald. Knuckles hides away the Super Emeralds and their power (Sonic & Knuckles (Knuckles’ Side)).
Dr. Robotnik is discovered once again making robots out of small animals on an island. Tails and Knuckles accompany Sonic for transportation and to search for the Chaos Emeralds which have appeared. While Knuckles is more knowledgeable about the Chaos Emeralds, he concedes collecting and using them to Sonic which is a habit that sticks with him. (Sonic 3D Blast)

Sonic discovers he has some kin alive and may be the descendant of royalty. With his two supposed siblings Sonic starts a band which receives terrible reviews. After searching for their parents, it becomes apparent that they are no longer alive and the two other hedgehogs may not in fact be related to Sonic. Sonic leaves the band and cut ties with the two hedgehogs forever. (Sonic Underground)
A professor and his daughter inform Sonic of the six rings of order, and tell him Dr. Robotnik may be after their power. It turned out, there were no such things as these rings or even a plot from Dr. Robotnik. In the location specified there were merely some boring fields. (Sonic X-treme)
Sonic begins hitting puberty. Sonic revisits several old islands that have sentimental value to him. (Sonic Pocket Adventure, Sonic Jam)
The Chaos Emeralds no longer return to the special stages and just end up somewhere in the world. Dr. Robotnik learns the legend of Chaos, an ancient protector of the Chaos Emeralds sealed inside the Master Emerald. He shatters the master Emerald in order to use a misguided Chaos to collect the Chaos Emeralds. Tikal's spirit is freed along with Chaos. This plan ultimately backfires. Knuckles learns some of the past behind the Master Emerald and his ancestry. The Master Emerald is shattered for the first time but is recovered. Amy Rose's love is rekindled. Tails and Big the Cat assist. Sonic is significantly older, and has changed his impatient zippy attitude for a much more relaxed demeanor. (Sonic Adventure)

(Sonic Adventure 2)
The Chaos Emeralds return to the special stages. Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Amy work together to stop Dr. Robotnik's plans for world domination and liberate countless animals he has made into robots. The adventure resembles one from Sonic's younger days. (Sonic Advance)
Sonic trains himself and focuses on his running. With the help of tricks, he and his friends first break the sound barrier. Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Amy meet and befriend Cream the Rabbit, who can run at an impressive speed, fly, and attack with a vicious fighting Chao named Cheese. The five of them rescue Cream's mom from Dr. Robotnik and once again put an end to his scheme. (Sonic Advance 2)
Sonic and friends try to relax in a small town. Dr. Robotnik unearths and ancient fighting machine, which Sonic names Emerl. Emerl learns unrivaled fighting techniques by studying closely with Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Cream, Rouge, and a Shadow. Emerl absorbs pieces of Chaos Emeralds which summons a weakened Chaos, signaling danger for the Chaos Emeralds. Emerl is overloaded with energy by Dr. Robotnik and becomes evil. Sonic defeats this Emerl who returns to a weakened state. (Sonic Battle)
Dr. Robotnik discovers a new technology which allows him to power Robots with a single ring rather than a small animal. Dr. Robotnik uses this energy source and revives his plans to construct Eggmanland. Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, and Cream start focusing on training team work instead of speed. Emerl carries out Dr. Robotnik's orders and is used to fight Sonic, but this partnership ultimately backfires on Dr. Robotnik.

The Marauders are defeated, but in the meantime Dr. Robotnik has begun rebuilding his empire significantly. (Sonic Chronicles the Dark Brotherhood)
Dr. Robotnik develops a ray which corrupts the power of the Chaos Emeralds. He uses this on super Sonic to free a beast named Dark Gaia from the planet. In the process Sonic is granted lycanthropy. Upon this success, Dr. Robotnik begins constructing Eggmanland for a third time. Sonic travels the world repairing the Chaos Emeralds and is assisted by some of his friends. By day he relies on his speed, which is at the fastest in his life, and by night he is granted unnatural power. In the end, he stops Dr. Robotnik's plans and is cured. Tails takes him away. (Sonic Unleashed)
Sonic dedicates his time to a series of community and charity fundraisers. He invites several acquaintances, who arrive with varying attendance.

Far in the future Sonic is no where to be seen and is rumored to be dead. A now insane Dr. Robotnik is unsure how to function without his rival. In his madness, he constructs a giant theme park on an island where rings have strange powers. Using these rings he not only powers robots as he had previously done, but also boss machines. Metal Sonic 3.0 runs rampant and acts largely on its own accord. Espio is captured but rescued by a faded Knuckles. Together they master Dr. Robotnik's combi catcher and rescue the remaining members of the veteran Chaotix detective agency and two rebellious mechanic robots. Also mysteriously in the combi catcher is Mighty armadillo who has not appeared for many years and has the exact same technique as the now missing Sonic. Charmy is nearing the end of his life span and Vector has matured considerably. In his insanity Dr. Robotnik tries to power Metal Sonic with a special stage ring. The result predictably backfires and a power that can destroy the world is again awakened in the very same style it was in Sonic Heroes. Knuckles and company find the island's holy rings and use them to stop Metal Sonic, saving both the island and the world. (Knuckles’ Chaotix)
In a world Sonic had once visited, a figurine is made in Sonic's honor. This figure is given life and is made to fight other figures. Sonic in particular is not revived until other live figurines reach the end of the world, where he joins in the final assault against Tabu. (Super Smash Bros. Brawl)
29 January 2009 - 09:19 PMAmong those I've talked to who have played the game, few got reasonably far in the game. I also don't know one person who actually bought the game. The game's reception by reviewers seemed good, and there are no major faults with the game. I am curious about how the release and subsequent playing went among you sonic fans, but my questions are more out of curiosity than to prove a point about game quality or something. Now that everyone has had the chance to see it, I want to know:
How far did you get in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood?
Did you actually buy it?
I myself got as far as the swamps and Big the Cat. (No spoiler warning. There are swamps and Big. Woo.) I did not buy it and won't till it's like $5.
09 December 2007 - 03:24 AMApparently this is a bit more than a pre-release. I'm just putting in an interest check if there's anyone interested is spending on this. I understand that other betas are the big thing right now but I'd pitch in maybe $50 for this since I'd get the disc myself
The seller isn't looking for a price but will essentially give it to who offers the most. This isn't going through the normal auction and collector channels though to my knowledge.
Also drx you are never on AIM or MSN.
14 March 2007 - 03:08 AMMe and Shad were at video games live. More specifically, the post-show developer/composer meet. We were he
rded into a line and Koji Kondo left ~10 minutes into the event. About an hour of drawing phallus in pictochat later, I was at the walk-o-composers. I'll keep this post Sonicy.
1) Spencer Nilson.
He was pretty cool and I told him that SonicCD had a great US sound track. The US one was much different (which he composed) but still great. He thanked me and said he thought he did a good job. I asked why the new sound track and he said that Sega decided the sound track should be more American. He also said it was controversial at the time.
When asked for personal stories, he said since there was a new female character, he decided to put female vocals in lots of the songs. He also mentioned that it was hard to do Sonic Boom since he wanted it to sync kinda (like Toot Toot Sonic Warrior). We told him he did a good job and he heartily agreed.
2) Richard Jacques.
"Good job on the Saturn Sonic CD." "Thanks." (Shad was more into it.)
3) Jun Senoue.
I told him his music was awesome and that it practically made the games. I said Sonic game just wouldn't be as fun without his music. He signed the slip to my Sonic 3 box, and I asked him "I know you didn't do most of the songs in this game specifically, but which did you do?" and he responded "This one? ... Just the bonus round and special stage."
Then I dropped the mo' fuggen bombshell on him.
"So why didn't you compose the music for Sonic Crackers or Knuckles Chaotix, rather than those two girls who hadn't really done anything?"
He stares at me with wide eyes and terrible teeth. "Crackers!?"
He pounds the table and stands up Phoenix Wright style, "[b]CRACKERS!?"
"Yeah. Actually I have it on my PSP right here." A lie. It was Shade's PSP. I'd already set it up with Dgen running. I unpaused the game, showed him the title, pushed start and put the PSP in his hands.
Everyone in the vicinity was staring wit ha wf kinda look, including Richard Jacques and the other composers around.
Jun put the PSP down and held his hands up. He made a couple noises like "oh... ahh.." and immediately started digging around in his pockets, then his suitcase.
After digging in his coat pockets he find a digital camera, and after happily saying "Crackers!" takes a picture of me holding Sonic Crackers running on a PSP. He just stayed silent at my questions about it though. =(
He wrote down my name, autographed and gave me a copy of the Sonic Adventure 2 OST sampler, and game me a guitar pick with his name on it. I took a picture with him and he asked me to upload it on his website. I asked one last wuestion about which was his favorite song in Sonic 3&K and 3D Blast MD. He considered and said the Bonus round with the gravity balls. (I wanted him to answer for both but oh well).
I know "pix or it didn't happen" but I don't have them atm. My camera is back at my room so I don't have them till the end of the week. They're on Shade's Photobucket and Myspace though.
