Shame to hear about that. How old was he?

@  RedG : (06 December 2019 - 06:04 PM)

Sorry to hear, Wulfsbane. My condolences.

@  Wulfsbane : (05 December 2019 - 10:43 PM)

My grandfather passed on the 17th.

@  Wulfsbane : (28 November 2019 - 07:14 PM)

This year's Thanksgiving was a lot tougher than normal.

@  Wulfsbane : (28 November 2019 - 07:14 PM)

Same to you.

@  RedAuthar : (28 November 2019 - 03:47 PM)

Happy American Turkey Day

Well the player base went up exponentially since the switch.

@  wildfire : (05 October 2019 - 08:39 PM)

Probably to help Bungie now that Activision's money isn't backing them.

@  Wulfsbane : (03 October 2019 - 06:33 AM)

Destiny made the move to Steam.

@  Wulfsbane : (09 September 2019 - 10:12 AM)

We'll probably see Tracer soon

@  Shadow : (06 September 2019 - 10:48 PM)

I'd rather see Mai in Smash

@  Wulfsbane : (06 September 2019 - 09:05 AM)

I'm more surprised about the Fatal Fury character.

@  Wulfsbane : (06 September 2019 - 08:00 AM)

Really wasn't keen on the idea of Sans being playable, but I guess he's in the same vein as Ness/Lucas

@  Wulfsbane : (06 September 2019 - 08:00 AM)

I think it works.

@  GamemasterAn... : (05 September 2019 - 06:53 AM)

So...Sans is a Mii Gunner costume for Smash. Comments?

I found this at a church yard sale last year. It was headed for the dumpster, so I decided to rescue it. With a fresh set of batteries and some tin foil I was able to get the sound effects working. Someone already posted photos of the pages, so I've uploaded the sounds here. If anyone wants the book, I'll send it to you for free. It'll save me the trouble of listing it on eBay. Also, if anyone has a Sonic Retro account with wiki access, do your civic duty and add this stuff to their page.

That's really interesting. Never heard of it

i find it odd for a book like this....to feature such characters like the Freedom Fighters.....yet Sega themselves allow it to happen.....and ironically in the book, it says that the characters are trademarks of SEGA, copyright 1995.......makes you wonder....hmmmm.  Anyways, nice find

Man, those are some terrible sound effects! Not to knock your work at all, Frieza; it's not like you designed the things. But it seems strange that so many of the icons have character faces and there isn't really an identifiable voice among them. I'm guessing the voice actors would have demanded royalties...

I was thinking the same thing! I was actually going to try playing all the sound effects as I read through it to get the full experience, but I stopped after two pages because it was making it even worse. I'm guessing the Knuckles button is supposed to be the sound of him punching, but he never attacks anything the entire book! Sally's got an explosion after her giggle, and there's never a time she blows anything up. The rings play the game sound of Sonic getting hit and losing his rings, but the sound is never used in that context. It's like the writer and the sound designer never spoke to each other.

 

Ben, you're welcome to it. I've got no use for the spare change I'd get for selling it, so if you're interested just PM me your address (or, if you don't want to give it out, I could meet you somewhere since you're so close, assuming you're not away at college).

I remember seeing that book once when I was a kid; before I ever knew anything about Sonic.  I need to look up those images.

 

Hey Uncle Ben, enjoy the book!

Thanks for the image links!  I remember some of those images now, but I never what they were about when I was a kid.  I think it is funny that the book has a mixture of themes from AOSTH, SATAM, and the SEGA video games series.  Guess that was the American Sonic in his glory days.
