    Yup! It's not particularly great, but it's stuck with me since I played it as a kid. I used the tracks for my Sonic Generations parody where you played through a Schoolhouse level but I don't remember where I got the songs themselves from. I can upload them if you'd like.

    Are you serious? I owned a copy when I was younger and it was dead silence the entire time. No music or sfx aside from the "yahoos", the animal noises, sonic voice clip, and video files.

    I heard some of it recently, but i swear ive heard none of it before

    Im going to have to dig and find it.

    I swear I've mentioned the song from the memory recess game actually has lyrics in this very thread

    And the reason the game doesn't have sound is that it is extremely NOT future-proofed. The game iterates through a list of sound cards to find good settings to use, so if yours was made after the game it probably won't recognize it.

    Not a huge deal, though. I've emulated the game with DOSBox for shits and giggles and can confirm that the sound works on it.

    Full scans of the Sonic the Fighters article from Gamest #173: https://www.docdroid.net/ay0YClT/gamest-173-sonic-the-fighters.pdf

    Please excuse the excess scan at the bottom, the office scanner was a bit finicky.

    So I found some cool "new" Sonic 3 stuff in some magazine scans we've had for years. As far as I now, this stuff has never been pointed out, and I was wondering if any of it was worthy of being on the wiki.

    [​IMG]
    So this comes from a Sonic 3 magazine supposedly dated from March 1993. It sounds like this is talking about the Marble Garden Act 2 boss. The strange thing about this however is that it mentions "a plethora of conventional bombs". Does this mean it had some sort of bomb attack at one point?

    [​IMG]
    This also comes from the same source. It mentions "vertically fired mortars" which would be the bombs Firebreath engulfed the island with. However, it makes it sound like it's part of the regular boss fight. Knuckles version of the boss does shoot bombs, and actually is still in the final game; abeilt inaccessible through normal means.

    This was however the most interesting thing:

    Besides the fact that it uses 1-Player sprites (mokeup perhaps?), it appears to be an earlier version of Desert Palace! (Final map on bottom for comparison)

    The only change is the leftmost part disappearing in the final map. Sadly, the magazine did has that weird border that doesn't let us know if it could loop as it is or it was meant to have an even longer layout . Is the background a bit different too, or it's just the magazine's colouring?

    The background does look a little bit different, although that could also be due to the quality of the magazine and the scan. The collapsing sand area on the right side also looks structured differently.

    I also found two "new" scans using the sonic 2 sprites. The Launch Base Zone one still has the old HUD and color palette.

    The same magazine also had this Angel Island layout that looks like an earlier version. I wonder how reliable of a source this is, it does seem to show more than most other Sonic 3 magazines.

    Everything Sonic-related is a worthwhile wiki addition.

    In Sonic Drift 2, Metal Sonic's car, the Blue Devil, is the only vehicle without a steering wheel or handlebars. But it does have two loose cables in the driver's seat, implying that Metal Sonic plugs himself into the vehicle and his AI controls the Blue Devil directly.

    Where is this footage from? There was supposed to be a 3D Sonic game on the 32X? I don't believe I've ever heard about this before.

    Yes that has been shown off before. From when I can't exactly remember but I have seen that before.

    That's one of the early Sonic X-Treme concept animations Chris Senn posted way back - the giant SENNTIENT watermark is a dead giveaway. I'm assuming we have those archived somewhere...? If not, we need to get on that.

    I remember those animations being hosted on Sonic Cult as .gif files. Both the page and the gifs have been archived here, thankfully.

    It's the demo for Sonic Mars, which is Sonic X-Treme when it was using SatAM concepts on the 32X, so I've heard.

    Here's the original video, uploaded on YouTube January 31, 2007.

    Yeah, those are the ones from Sonic Cult. The gifs are admittedly much higher quality though.

    I DONE MAKED GAMES.
    Absolutely no idea where to put this, and it ain't getting its own thread.

    The other night, at a local industrial night I basically did a double-take at hearing Shadow the Hedgehog samples in a track. Hearing that sorta thing in a club came completely out of leftfield.

    Anywho, setlist just went up from said night so I've found the track:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWClLEWHAlU

    Sounds like the actual samples, pitched-down a bit. Can anyone confirm?

    OK so on the first line I figured it could just be a sound-alike, but the Chaos Control & Chaos Blast lines seal it. Wow =P

    I don't recall any ShtH song having those lyrics. Still...

    "Ultimate power"

    "I am the ultimate (lifeform)"

    "Let me show show what ultimate power is... Chaos Control! Chaos Blast!"


    There's no way that song isn't a stealth Shadow homage, the composer must be a Sonic fan.

    Amazingly enough, it's possible to sample voice clips that aren't in a song too.
