Absolute disgrace

@  Sunnyfruit : (16 July 2018 - 12:10 PM)

Sonic ads from before pointed to the next generation, Sonic ads from today are references to two generations before.

@  Sunnyfruit : (15 July 2018 - 09:41 AM)

:D

@  MoKat : (11 July 2018 - 11:18 AM)

I suppose stranger things -have- happened ;D

@  Sunnyfruit : (11 July 2018 - 01:25 AM)

I'm pretty sure Croatia will stomp England today. The final will be tight, anything could happen.

@  Uncle Ben : (10 July 2018 - 07:31 PM)

Now I guess it's Croatia that's the most out there?

@  Uncle Ben : (10 July 2018 - 07:31 PM)

I wanted Switzerland to win cause it would of been the most out there team.

@  Sunnyfruit : (10 July 2018 - 08:09 AM)

So much resentment in the FRA-BEL to come.

@  Uncle Ben : (06 July 2018 - 08:13 PM)

Tarred and Feathered probably

@  Quickster : (06 July 2018 - 11:06 AM)

Last night I also dreamed that Chaos came to the Thorndyke family's dinner.

@  Quickster : (06 July 2018 - 11:05 AM)

Night before last I had a dream that Chris Thorndyke was going to appear in the Sonic comics, and I thought, "I wonder how the Chris haters are going to react?"

@  Shadow : (06 July 2018 - 10:17 AM)

Looks like Robotnik finally won.

@  Sunnyfruit : (05 July 2018 - 11:52 AM)

Just found a dead hedgehog while cleaning my mother's garden. Still can't figure what kind of presage this is

@  Sunnyfruit : (01 July 2018 - 03:22 AM)

Sorry to hear the news.

@  Uncle Ben : (30 June 2018 - 07:09 AM)

My rabbit had to be put down today. She was 12, twice the age she should have been

@  Shadow : (26 June 2018 - 11:12 AM)

Well I didn't need an ambulance, so no charge there.

@  LogiTeeka : (24 June 2018 - 10:34 PM)

I'm hoping the health bill isn't too hefty.

@  LogiTeeka : (24 June 2018 - 10:33 PM)

Sheesh! You're lucky it wasn't worse.

@  Shadow : (23 June 2018 - 11:19 AM)

Just rest, and tylonel. Woke up with a black eye which is new.

Long Before the Boom Blitz, Other Plans


A new audio interview published Monday by the Press the Buttons Podcast reveals the idea of a Sonic movie, now firmly entrenched in the minds of fans around the world, is not a new idea.

Console Wars author Blake Harris revealed in the Podcast that in the midst of his research for the book detailing the great battle between Sega and Nintendo for supremacy during the 1990s, he came across plans for MGM to release a Sonic film–in 1994.

I’ve continued to conduct interviews with people, just to try and get more context, and I’ve also continued to try to get my hands on as much archival material as I can. Some of it can obviously be helpful to the documentary, but I recently found — I came across a contract that Sega had with MGM in 1994 to produce a Sonic the Hedgehog movie, which I didn’t know about, and I’m sure it couldn’t weave its way into the book…

Harris adds it was intended was an animated movie.

It’s not the only Sonic or Sega related story you’ll hear in the interview that may not be in Console Wars. You can hear more with Harris at this at this link.

I will say, it fills me with great hope that it was planned to be fully animated. The timing would have been good as well, given Sonic was at the height of its popularity.

 

I can only imagine the fisticuffs SEGA Japan and America would have gotten into over whether to base it on the games or cartoons, though.

 

Naturally SEGA Japan would have won... which probably explains why up until this new film, the only "movie" for Sonic was a two-part anime series.

I don't think so. This is older.

“Some say that he is the only man in history to buy a DFS sofa when there wasn’t a sale on, and that his favourite boxing venue is Munich airport. All we know is he’s called the Stig.”

 

“Some say that if you hold him in the wrong way he doesn’t work properly, and that just very recently he developed an irrational hatred of Rubens Barrichello. All we know is he’s called the Stig.”
