    lol. Yeah. Exactly. It's Aaron up to his lovable mischief again. Seriously he's the best thing to happen to the Sonic franchise in years. So glad he came back. He made everyone feel positive about the series again. Even on NeoGAF where they're usually negative about the franchise. Good work Aaron! Hope to see more of your wonderful efforts.
     
  4. I need to see good games before I can appreciate the social media skills :)

    And with unlocking Big, you'll be granted with a 150% Distance Bonus.
    Which wouldn't really help that much in a fishing game, but to be honest, it doesn't really do all that much in Runners either.

    Beats me.
    If the Facebook Page or Twitter ever mention anything about Blonic or Sonichu, I'm out of here.
     

  10. Umm.... kind of?

    SO THIS WAS THE PLAN OMG WHAT IS GOING ON- Still struggling to get the Egoraptor joke, though. *bricked*

    The Sonic Twitter just keeps getting better, like the time Cranky Kong "took over" the official Nintendo Twitter. (That was a barrel of laughs, no pun intended.) Sonic needs that kind of personality, like, in the games, not only on social media.

    Wait a minute, is the Tumblr account for real too?

    I've seen this one doing the rounds, but I don't watch Game Grumps, so could you fill in the blanks for me?

  16. Sorry for my ignorance (I don't visit Facebook or other big social media sites too often) but, is it the official Facebook Sonic page? Are you sure it's not a fanpage? Wow, I'm really (positively) surprised/shocked to see they posted one of the best known pictures in the internet mocking Sonic in their officlal page. :v:/>

    Uh, yeah. It's the real official page. Good way to know for sure is looking for the checkmark in the blue circle icon that is shared among social media sites that verify that the account is an official representation of its namesake.
     
  19. Alright, let me quote this part of my post:

    I don't visit these sites too often, I was asking because maybe it was an unofficial fanmade page despite the "blue circle", who knows... Thanks for letting me know, though.

    I'm aware of your ignorance there. It also wouldn't have killed you to click around and you could have quickly determined that it is not a fan page.
