    It's clearly a scene from Ken Penders' unreleased Sonic movie =P

    The real crime is that they used Shadow instead of Dr. Eggman.

    So I was browsing some, lets just say adult videos, and someone was wearing a Sonic shirt in one of them.

    So yep. That's a thing now.

    I know the Too Many Games guys, and they're not the ones making the money of those repros, it's an associate of theirs. They sell the carts for him and give him the money minus a few bucks, I think.

    I've chastised them about it, but they won't listen to me about it.

    I didn't actually watch the video but I noticed it in one of those preview pics. I'll look for it later but it may be burried by now

    So I was poking around the ancient Nick Arcade Prototype thread from '06, and came across something that never seemed to get a concrete answer, and I'm wondering if I just missed it.

    [​IMG]

    Did anyone ever get to the bottom of these sprites? People were throwing around ideas back then of being from early CPZ or MZ, but it never seemed to fully be decided. They aren't archived on the unused content page of Sonic 2 in the wiki, and I couldn't find mention of them anywhere else but the Nick Arcade thread.

    Even back then, theories of this being Genocide City assets were getting tossed out, but even so, those needle gauges do kind of remind me of the ones that are on the pistons that appear only in MZ3... just sayin'.

    Did I miss a concrete answer somewhere?

    The lower left corner looks like those blinking things on the walls of the indoor places in Emerald Hill/Hill Top.

    The rest of them... I honestly can't remember if anybody had already found an answer on that, but I do remember seeing some recolors that might or might not have been relevant. =|

    My money would be on them being from another game, like the Chiki Chiki Boys leftovers in the Wai prototype.

    The gauge bears no resemblance to the gauge in MZ3 besides them both being gauges, though:

    It's smaller, and the cells making it are split between three different 16x16 tiles.

    IIRC someone made a quick edit of those showing them being used to make a O/X.

    A box for a bootleg, I reckon. In fact I may have seen that one a couple times before.

    It's a cover which originally came paired with a pirated Sonic & Knuckles (sans lock-on). It's reasonably common. I think there may even be scans somewhere

    if you've got an interest in pirated tat may I present to you the Argentine MercadoLibre - Squirrel's choice for knock-off Sega garbage

    I have this one on my old motorola. v1.02 converted by Rockpool Games.

    It's horrid. The physics on the curves are so broken.

    The "Video Guy" looks pretty uncomfortable to play. Am I supposed to hold it diagonally? Which direction on the X-Pad is Up?

    A little while ago I bought I magazine called "All About Sonic", and was really surprised to find some unseen Sonic 1 concept art in it! I've taken a scan of it:

    The full-sized version of the scan is here.

    Aren't those concept art scans the only things we didn't have already, anyway?


    Funny how they keep wrongly saying that "harinezumi" meant "needle mouse", when it's just the Japanese word for "hedgehog". Some writer from the TV show Bad Influence and the marketing folks that handled Sonic 4 are to blame for that one, though.
