Some of you already know this, but late last night the first episode of the Sonic Retro Podcast was uploaded and made available through the wiki. You can download it in the Sonic Retro Podcast article. Of course, this is just a preliminary way to deliver the podcast. We're working on a better way to distribute the podcast using Wordpress (or some other blogging platform) as well as using publicly available podcast directories. (ie; iTunes) Here's a little summery of what to expect from Episode 0 - Slamma Lamma Ding Dong! Community Hacking Project - We take a look at progress being made on Sonic AX and The S Factor. Main Topic - Naka's Sonic vs. Oshima's Sonic - The original Sonic the Hedgehog was a combined effort of Oshima (the creator of Sonic as a character) and Naka (the lead programmer of the game). However, Sonic 2 and Sonic CD was lead almost completely separate from each other. Each game was lead by Naka (Sonic 2) and Oshima (Sonic CD) with individual teams and visions of Sonic. We take an in-depth discussion on both styles and discuss where Sonic would be now had it taken the way of Sonic CD. Spam Mail Reading - All work and no play makes Tails a dull fox. It's not all facts and hacks, right? So for the sake of humor we reach into our spam folders to pull out some emails that are funny, nonsensical, and even a little poetic. I hope you all enjoy this first podcast. However, remember it's pretty experimental and unpolished. The quality isn't really top-notch and we did this spur-of-the-moment around 4 AM. By all means though, give us feed back so we can make the show better.
