    Well, Sega comes out of SErvice GAmes. It's not an abbreviation, it's a new word derived from the first two letters of service and games. Maybe if they company's name was Sergame it'd make more sense for the "proper" pronunciation to be sir-gay.

    Can anyone identify the game boot screen featured at 0:27? I think it's a Sega CD game, but that's as far as I've gotten. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q_l9OV1lRYk&feature=related [/youtube]

    Correct. I ended up putting that screen in my hack ages ago, although I edited the art a bit.

    However, it's not a SEGA CD game, just a Mega Drive/Genesis game. Although, I think there was a Game Gear version as well, which used the same screen.


    Edit:After wasting my time and watching that entire video, I notice the first version of that is the Game Gear version, the MD/Genesis version shows up later in that video at around 5:05.

    apparently Polygames did most of the coding for Sonic Spinball

    Is this well-known here, though? I didn't see it on the wiki except for the production credits section...

    This apparently has remnants of Bridge Zone's chord progression in it. I can kinda hear it, but it seems coincidental to me.

    I've always kinda heard it myself, but I always wrote it off as a coincidence really.

    Since I missed the 8-bit Sonic 1 back in the day, the first time I played it or heard Bridge Zone was because it was included in SADX. I was like, WTF it's Tails' theme in 8-bit, what kind of sorcery is this? I'd completely forgotten about it since then, though.

    I can't hear it at all. Where should I be listening the hardest?

    The lyrics, I believe is where the focus is on the similarities. Start the video above at around 00:58, that seems to be where the similarities start.

    Also, the music at the very beginning, it's got the same basic chord progression. The short guitar phrase at around 0:07 is very reminiscent, too.

    This has to be the pinnacle of trivial knowledge, so I'm proud to say I don't know what this is.

    From what I saw of Japanese Sonic X back in the day, I don't remember Vector having his own theme song, and the 4kids version didn't really have songs that lasted more than 5 seconds, and this song's not on the soundtrack. The Youtube comments lead me to believe that this is a real song from Sonic X, so I'm stumped.

    Did Sonic X get another soundtrack in Spain?

    No, Sonic X didn't have a different Soundtrack in Spain, it's the same UK had but dubbed. It has the european Main theme ( instead of "gotta go fast", the one who only says SONIC X SONIC X SONIC X SONIC X" . I'm not much of a Sonic x fan so I don't really know where this sounds, but in the video it says it's from episode 71, USA version.

    My guess is that the "Eggmobile" parent object got destroyed, but the "Eggman's face" and "Twin Hammer crate" child objects didn't, so they try to attach themselves to the first new object as soon as it's created - the barrier's sparks, but those don't have code that deletes child objects either, so they remain stuck in this kind of limbo until the stage is reloaded via death/special stage/bonus stage.

    That actually makes a lot of sense.

    Whoever composed this was a grade-A dumbass.

    Everyone knows that a theme for vector should be freestyle.

    Dammit, I like Vector. When did Sega decide he should be a comedy buffoon?
