“I’m going to go complain on my Twitter now.  WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH…”

Sonic Retro News

  • Sonic 2 LD released a demo.  Boot up your SEGA Master System Emulator and try it out!  [Sonic 2 LD Demo]
  • Get your Sonic 1, 2 & 3 metatiles, courtesy of Mercury.  They are 7zips, so get 7zip.  [Sonic Metatiles]
  • Are you participating in the 25-ring challenge?  The contest ends tonight at midnight.  [Sonic 2sday Contest]
  • Jim Sterling continues his silly tirade against Sonic Retro by calling us “pathological haters” for responding to Iizuka’s latest quote regarding the physics of Sonic 4.  According to Jim, the physics of Sonic 4 are fine, but he’ll throw a temper-tantrum about them in his Colors review. We’re not allowed to give our honest opinion, but he can do it all day, every day.  All of our posts are hateful and venomous, but his are just peachy.  All this coming from a guy who hates on everybody, screams at a camera in aviator sunglasses and calls people “furry virgins” instead of actually responding to their claims.  He realizes that SEGA is calling him a troll, too, right?  The company that actually makes the games?  Look, dude, we like Colors, but nobody here cares that you gave it a bad review.  That’s your opinion.  We just like to point out that you’re a hypocrite the size of a semi-truck.  [Destructoid]

Why Sonic the Hedgehog 4 will SUCK (Courtesy of Destructoid)

Destructoid has an article up over here proclaiming the reasons why Sonic 4 will suck – essentially it’s a piss-take on the nitpicky little things that some have been complaining about Sonic 4 that will make zero difference to the game in general, everything from eye-colour to Robotnik/Eggman’s naming argument. Go and take a look, but remember to take it with a large helping of salt. =P
