Should actually be its own topic but thanks for sharing and keep us updated.
It's wonderful to fill in the gaps missing from the OST. It's a shame we won't have proper CD quality / lossless version of the missing tracks, but that's a small concern considering the fact that the tracks are available.
Here is the AAC stream ripped from the 480p YouTube video for anyone who wants the song: http://www.mediafire.com/?be3528end5eneof
I have just found this Sonic Adventure trailer..I'm not sure if is already know or not. I'm sure I've never seen some of those things before
This has probably been mentioned before, but in the intro to the Saturn version of Fighting Vipers it looks like there's a toy of "Rocket Metal" (in rocket form) to the far left of the screen, after the Lunar Fox, cat Honey and Bark. It's about 55 seconds in.
I've looking at old magazines today, and found something very interesting...
This is from hobby consolas ( spanish magazine), issue 31. It's the one just after the Sonic 3 review. It says that Sega is planning to release two more carts called Sonic Plus and Sonic Special Edition, who would lock-on to Sonic 3 and make more levels available and make 3 games in 1. Sounds familiar?
Also, in older issues we have this:
Regular Knuckles art, except they call him "rastafari".
From newer issues, a reference to "Sonic Chaotix" and several other 32x games. Some of them I had never heard of, like Bullet Fighters,"Panzi dragons", who is in fact a 32x beta of Panzer dragoon ( they have photos after that) and "clock works nights" . I bet they mispelled those two.
Whoa, Clockwork Knight might have been originally developed as a 32X game? Dang! It doesn't look too bad either from what I can tell (though it would seem that I can't say the same for Panzer Dragoon).
"Well excuse me, princess." is listed as a Sonic quote on Wikipedia.
For Archie comic fans
prototype cover of the first issue?
Nope that's a real issue. It's issue 1 of the initial mini series (So issue 2 since there was an issue 0, but this for some reason address that this is the first issue even though it's not).
Ya it's really confusing but that's how it is. I used to have that issue when I used to own the comics.
I was playing through Sonic Rush today and noticed that getting the invincibility powerup causes the "drowning" timer to reset. I don't recall this happening in any other Sonic game.
I found this part of a episode of Beakman's World and there's a "Ring flash" SFX at 0:21
Gosh, I loves Beakman's world as a kid, thanks for posting that little piece of my childhood
http://vc.sega.jp/3ds/lineup.html more 8-bit Sonics on 3DS Virtual Console (in Japan)
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 was released on Halloween; Sonic Drift 2 is coming out
no word if they'll hit our 3DS Virtual Consoles either
A guy in the comments says Aquatic Ruin Zone's music is based off of a classic song from Uruguay. Anyone know if there's any truth to this? Doing a search on Google only brings up the same video.
This kinda reminds me of this 14-yr old Russian boy by the username TonyTheBomber (formerly Marionist98) who claims that Bomberman 64 was composed by someone named Dmitry Nizov, claims Akifumi Tada's credit is a conspiracy, and then goes on to say that Bomberman itself was created in Russia and then taken away - all without a single shred of evidence. Stupid kid.
Moral of the story: don't concern yourself with anyone who makes exaggerated claims with no evidence behind them. Our legal systems have a name for this, and it's puffery. Take the initiative and message the user if you want; if they don't reply their argument is null and void.
In fact..I don't know much about Uruguayan music, but it's true that Aquatic Ruins sounds pretty similar to typical latin american music.It has always reminded me of this song ( and similar ones of the same genre)
So it's not too off to think that some Uruguayan song might sound similar to Aquatic Ruin ( but, I doubt it's really based off it, just a coincidence)
One of my local arcades has this beautiful machine here. I haven't seen one of these beauties since I was about 7 or 8.
Hah, nice find!
Except for the blue arms, that Sonic in the marquee looks pretty awesome.
I think I've actually seen one of those before! I remember it playing Sky Sanctuary music for some reason?
Uh? How do you play that? I've never seen a similar arcade before!
