I was never massively 'into' SatAM or Sonic Underground. For me, they were not as Sonic-like as I was into at the time. I did enjoy watching them however, and having grown older, I can really appreciate the writing styles, and the intricate twists in the plots, and the mechanics of the story telling. No one can deny that Ben was nothing short of a brilliant writer, who inspired and entertained many young audiences with his writing. I did not know Ben personally, in fact, I had never spoken to him before, having only heard of passing references to him through the years as a Sonic website lurker and forumer. It seems as though he had a great presence in this community, and I can see quite a lot of sadness as I look around the forums. It's really quite heart wrenching. My condolences to his family and friends at this difficult time. Rest in peace, Ben.
