    Personal opinion: Far more likely to be a fanwork. Has Emi ever done anything officially for Sega? Ryan hasn't in years.

    Overlord, crushing dreams since *looks at profile* 2003 T_T

  3. Totes legit leak from a few days ago. Spoiler alert: none of it sounds even remotely real.

    Given the poster's "image" accompanying the text, I'm also inclined to it being a troll post. Another one, nothing new xD
     
  5. It's honestly too bad, because the stuff this "leak" purports would be genuinely awesome.

    That's how they get you: they'll say genuinely awesome sounding stuff to get your hopes up. They want you going "Aw man, I hope it's true, I'll be real disappointed if it's fake!" I've solved this problem for myself by just never reading or believing leaks. There's nothing to be lost from skepticism.

    False leaks (which really should just be called "hoaxes") tend to come in two flavours; either they're everything that people want to hear so that they cause disappointment when they're confirmed be fake, or they sound like the realisation of everyone's wrist nightmares in order to send people into a fury before they learn that they're false. This is a case of the former, and I don't think I need to explain why.

    Also whatever Emi and Ryan are talking about, it's just going to be a fan work. Nothing to get excited about concerning official Sonic news.

    You know, it's probably extremely telling that whenever we get a leak with stuff people would like, our faith in SEGA is so low we automatically assume it's fake.

    "3D classic Sonic game" doesn't even sound like it'd be good given how Sonic 4 turned out.......

    You can't be disappointed it you just assume all sonic leaks are fake and the new game is going to be average at best.

    Jack shit.
    Does this count as an event?
    Do we need a...wiki page? Yes we do.

    In fact this whole podcast thing should have a wiki page with details of what happened every time.
     
  14. Wait, they included Super Smash Bros. Brawl Angel Island remix? Lol. I know it was made by Jun Senoue, but still.

    i mean...i think it's just a matter of "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is".
    like, that big "leak" a few weeks ago going on about how nintendo is releasing a ton of mario ports, remakes and new games for the 35th anniversary, including a new paper mario in the style of the first two games... its extremely suspicious. usually these kinds of pie in the sky leaks will throw in something really obvious
    in the case of the mario leak, the mario 3d world port is an extremely obvious and easy money maker for nintendo especially after the success of nsmbudx; they likely did nsmbu first simply because it was easier to strip gamepad-only features out of that game than out of 3d world
    to me, in terms of the sonic "leak", the obvious thing is the animated classic sonic series on netflix; they've been testing the waters for something like that since the mania adventures series.

    While it's not any wiki editing on my part, in terms of general preservation...

    ... A little while ago today, Jun Senoue and the Sonic the Hedgehog YouTube account did a little questions and answers session in the text chat of that live stream.

    During this, I tried to screenshot the questions/answers and some other messages. Sadly, at least 1 message from Jun Senoue got deleted before I got a chance to screenshot it, due to chat scrolling and old messages being automatically deleted periodically. Here's a .zip file download link of what I captured, 37 screenshots total. :)

    In hindsight, my dumb ass should have recorded the entire questions and answers session as a video using Fraps, so that you could see the proper flow of messages in order (and also synced up with the live stream's audio) without anything missed out. I've been tired and busy with other things just before that Q&A thing began, thus my head wasn't quite on right, plus it's currently quite warm weather where I live, so all in all I'm a little brain fried, haha. ^_^;

    In future for similar occasions, I'll try to screen record. :rolleyes:

    From what I saw there wasn't a lot TO save - it was music played over this background:

    It might have been scrolling? Can't recall.
