Monday Links: Return of the Links Edition

A busy work schedule and lack of news anywhere killed the links for two weeks.  While the former is still kicking my ass, the latter… well, you saw that trailer, right?  I believe that’s news.  Even if it’s late on a Monday!

Sonic Retro News

  • A long time ago, drx ported Sonic 1 to the 32x.  MarkeyJester resurrects it with an update.  All the PWN channels are there, but there are no sprites. [Sonic 32x Thread]
  • Late last month, somebody uncovered beta and E3 versions of Sonic 2006.  Yeah, it’s an abomination, but our interest of things pre-release knows no bounds. [Sonic 06 E3 Build Thread]
  • If you go into our forums to post about Sonic Generations, please please please for the love of Rotor the big gay walrus will you please read the thread rules.  If you break them, you will be suspended for a week.  No exceptions.  Over a dozen people couldn’t read last week and got axed. [Sonic Generations Megathread]
