Monday Video

I guess it’s really a “Monday Song,” but every Valentine’s Day, I always listen to Outkast’s “The Love Below” (probably because there’s a song called “Happy Valentine’s Day” on it).  Have some “Love Hater” (omg jazz on a hip-hop album):

    “Why, why, why, why, why? Sonic 2006 is back on the PS3 with trophy support.”

    Wasnt this confirmed as a missunderstanding? And it’s the 1991 game coming out?

    Wait wait wait. Ruby said that Sonic 1 on the Mega Drive was the game going up on the Playstation Network. Not Sonic 2k6.

    The Sonic 2006 one was debunked. It’s just Sonic 1 once again.

    The Love Below is an amazing album. In fact, I think I’m going to put it on right now…

    Didn’t I ask where the Sonic 2 level editor was? Oh, and Game Informer said that SEGA was their #9 publisher of 2010 as well.

      You do realize there have been several Sonic 2 level editors made, the oldest of which has been around for a decade, right? Read the wiki.

    Finally people are noticing something I’m doing. Seems like I’m the only person that cares about the PC games, everyone else hacks the Genesis games. But I’m not doing these things for recognition, I’m doing them because somebody should, and nobody has.

        Given how much attention my other projects have gotten (almost none, except for my SADX stuff), I was surprised that S2LVL got a full page of replies with just a picture after getting nothing in the tech lounge. It is nice that people like it, but I was honestly expecting people to say “Why did you make this when SonED2 is so much better?”
