    I'm working on working up the willpower to work on learning how to make my own Sonic fangames. Not quite there yet.

    I'd take you up on that, but last time I attempted that, whoever wasn't hosting wound up with a full one-second control lag due to my craptacular connection, so... yeah.

    Ah, why not. XBLA name's the same as my screen name here, I'll be on in a bit.

    EDIT: Fuck, I can't find my Xbox headset and Microsoft was too cheap to just let you use any old USB headset like the PS3 does. I hate textchat, damn it all. FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF—

    I played Sonic 1. I had challenged myself to beat it by midnight US central time. A series of missteps in Scrap Brain Zone Act 3 left me with few lives going into Final Zone. I was on my last life of my last continue when I beat Robotnik. Got the good ending, 5/5, would play again.

    I was playing sonic 3 last night and for the first time ever I had the glitch with the hydrocity robotnik boss where you run past to the capsule early. I never done that before but I know it's done by moving to the right too quickly before the fight starts, was annoying because I had no save(state) and was playing on the xbla version, aka no proper sonic 3 save slots :/

    I played as Sonic on Brawl yesterday.

    I never play as Sonic and I play Brawl almost daily if it counts. :v:

    It's even better when you turn the vuvuzela button on.

    Why the fuckinitalics is there a vuvuzela button? I take it that has something to do with the soccer/football championships?

    You mean the World Cup? ;P. Go watch it and understand why there is a vuvuzela button.

    Also, that 16bit happy birthday is pretty cool.

    I probably should, I caught a US vs. Turkey game a few weeks backs, and it was pretty badass. I just wasn't sure if the icon was supposed to be a football.

    And your avatar's pretty bitchin', lol.

    Nineteen years and still as awesome as ever.

    Incidentally, UK:Resistance posted this scan of the Gallup charts in the UK for the week of the 29th June, 1991:

    [​IMG]

    #4, not a bad first week showing at all, especially for a brand new IP (and remember this was a time when you weren't called a failure just because you hadn't come straight in at the top). They also note that this was quite possibly the highest a single-format game had charted in Britain at that point in time.

    LIVE Activity for week of June 21 is out and the sonic sale pushed all 4 titles up to 2nd-5th spot on arcade games played that week, lol.

    Interesting though is the order:

    1 RISK: FACTIONS
    2 SONIC & KNUCKLES
    3 Sonic The Hedgehog 3
    4 Sonic The Hedgehog 2
    5 Sonic The Hedgehog

    6 Castle Crashers
    7 Trials HD

    S&K sold the best followed by 3, then 2, then the original game.

    Actually, it makes sense if you think about it - they were released in the order of 1, 2, 3 and K, so it would make sense that the longer a game's been out, the more would already have it and thus not need to take advantage of the sale price.
