    I just saw this post on Assembler and thought it deserves its own topic since maybe you guys can find something.

    Anyone remember this or have any way of finding it? Sounds interesting.

    My Quotes from IRC:
    http://members.tripod.com/~agr_club/episodes.html I found a page that's kind of old... at first, in my hast, I thought it had an episode guide, but it turned out to be some of the topics that were talked about in the show.
    If anyone finds an episode list we can probably narrow down the search to a specific time period. I watched a few episodes on Youtube and saw a few game reviews like Battle Arena Toshinden. This game came out in 1995 so that episode is too old for sonic xtreme content...

    Edits for episodes checked:
    Merchandising
    Collectables
    Comics Around the world

    There's no doubt we'd be looking for an episode released in '96. If I had to wager a guess as to when I'd say not long after E3 (May 16-18). I'll try to dig around too, I'd love to see that footage. Dunno what our chances are here, so hopefully some day we'll be pleasantly surprised.

    Some old guy like me probably has an old dusty VHS tape sitting in some box somewhere oblivious to what he has in his position.

    I get a feeling that's just a generic tag list like you'd see on youtube for videos related to gaming.

    I just tried using the contact page on YTV's website to see about obtaining old episodes of their previous programming. I'll be lucky if I even get a response.

    Hope no one else trys to contact Nick Scoullar because it could cause us to lose a chance at the video.
    Quote from sentient.com: tweets were made even favorited by Nick....than deleted...

    Somebody on IMDB said they tried this and didn't get a response. It still can't hurt for you to try though. Good luck! I'd love to see this clip. God speed Andrew and Shoemanbundy.

    I got a response from YTV and it was a generic standard email they send out to anyone that messages. Absolutely zero response to my question, it was just filled with other FAQ stuff like "How do I get on a YTV show?" I never will understand why places like to isolate their public like that. :argh:

    That's ok. I've got a guy who may have it, he just has to go threw some VHS tapes. There are also a few leads on Senntient that some guys are following as well.. Its out there, and I know it will be found.

    It's like Christmas came early for Andrew. If this turns out legit it'll be another great find. Do we know anything about how the boss operated aside from Metal Sonic being in an arena and being xbox hueg?

    Hell yeah 1 month early ! Hope the footage is useful!
    I did speak with Christina Coffin threw some e-mails regarding the Metal Sonic boss fight controls a few years back.
    I really didn't want to share this info publicly till I made a boss engine release with AXSX. ( I did share it on Senntient.com in the past)
    Anyways! Here is some of what she said in one of the e-mails:

    Edit: Hope this is a nice early X-mas present for some of you guys, if you don't get the video you still get a little more info for the wiki.

    That's dangerously similar to the Biolizard and its pink bubbles...

    Okay guys one of my contacts has come threw for us !

    After many years of waiting ! Here it is !
    The metal sonic Boss fight presented by spooieVAULT of Youtube !
    Without the lead over on Assembler games and your help Shoemanbundy, we wouldn't have found this.
    Thanks man !

    Metal sonic Boss clip at around 3:44 right after Nights.

    Even with the find above ,, we still have a chance for a higher quality VHS tape ( although I doubt it would be much better)
    I still have a few contacts who haven't gotten back to me with their VSH copy yet.

    Ha. Doesn't look like Metal was doing much other than floating around, but there we go.

    Its hard to tell if they used a true Sonic 3D Model as in the below screen or the sprite, I'm going to have to download this bad boy and dissect it frame by frame !
    I've known this for some years already but After seeing the gameplay in motion with this demo I'm sure its proof enough that its the same engine used for the 718 (night looking leaked Saturn demo) down to the gameplay mechanics!
    Anyways in the screen below: This is another version of that nights demo with different textures and a 3D sonic model instead of a sprite. (The terrain is exactly the same as in 718)

    It seems Metal Sonic is shooting out some kind of projectile.
