The following are the journal entries that you can unlock in Sonic Battle. To access them, you will need to complete the Story Mode twice over. Maybe more if you’re lucky ;P It’s a good read though, and shows the background of Sonic Battle crosses over with the events of Sonic Adventure 2, just before Gerald went off his grapefruit and went on a vengeance bender. This information was sent to us by Tonykewv1.
I have uncovered a most interesting specimen from the warehouse. I believe it some sort of puppet or robot made by an ancient people. At first, I didn’t think anything of it, but when I was experimenting with ‘Chaos Emeralds’, it began to move. This suggests the possibility that even the ancient civilizations could harness the power of the ‘Chaos Emeralds’. When I was researching various papers related to the ‘Chaos Emeralds’ and this robot, I discovered that there was a possibility that this robot was something incredible. I don’t want to get ahead of myself, but this robot may be the cause of the fall of the fourth great civilization. I’m not sure I believe it just yet, though.
I’m no longer able to ignore the possibility that this robot did in fact destroy the fourth Great Civilization. I have discovered a stone tablet that explains as much. According to the tablet, “When the figure falls from the heavens, and the Stone of the gods is joined, all that exists will become one again”. Though it is difficult to believe, this robot has been watching my movements, and mimicking all that I do. I was amazed by my scans of this being. Surprising, reams and reams of data scrolled and caused my most powerful computer to crash. More intriguing was that the data was all about melee combat and weapons of that age. Eventually, if the being is ever restored to its former state it will put all the data to use, and recreate all the weaponry and combat abilities that it once had! And that’s not all. If my guesses are correct, it will also have the ability to absorb modern weaponry as well. What have I done? I have uncovered a horrible weapon!
I now understand why this being was named “Gizoid”. In the ancient tongue, it means “everything”. According to the stone tablet, if the Gizoid establishes a ‘link’ with someone, the Gizoid will swear loyalty to that person. Perhaps it still lacks ‘Chaos Emerald’ energy, but it has been saying the word “link” to me in broken tones it went on to explain: “Show me your true strength, and I shall obey. I am all things, and shall belong to me”. So as it suggested, I brought before it my collection of model guns, and fired them all. Then suddenly it said “I shall follow your every command, and never leave you side”. And since then, it refuses to listen to anyone but me. While is still is a fearsome weapon of destruction, at least it won’t be used for evil. However, If someone with evil intentions where to form a ‘Link’ with the Gizoid… I don’t even want to think about what will happen. I must research how one can re-establish a ‘Link’ with the Gizoid…
The upper echelon is going crazy. Perhaps they aim to freeze project ‘Shadow’. Soon, the ultimate life form ‘Shadow’ will be completed… The application to my granddaughter is also imminent. I cannot just let them stop my study at this point. Because I am the only one who can save my granddaughter’s life.
… The higher ups are threatening to shut down this research facility. I had no choice but to hand them the Gizoid to buy more time for my research. I tried to be careful and commanded it to never absorb weapons. Apparently, the way to cause the Gizoid to form a ‘Link’ is to show it power that surpasses that of its former master. While this poses immense danger, I cannot risk losing Maria.
My worst fears have come true. The Gizoid has absorbed enough weaponry and technology that it has started to got out of control. The resulting rampage resulted in the destruction of most of the “Ark”! I have deciphered the rest of the stone tablet. It says, “When the Gizoid had learned all that it could it become a god of wrath and destroyed all”. The researchers somehow managed to subdue the Gizoid and sealed it away. Luckily it only had one ‘Chaos Emerald’ installed. If it where to have all 7 Emeralds installed, it might of destroyed the planet. The Gizoid is too much of a liability. I tried destroying the core, but nothing I did worked. I understand too little of the technology that built him. My best hope is to try and reprogram its AI into a free-will, emotions-based AI…
I have heard there was an accident at the research facility. …. ….. ….. Everything! Everything is gone.
My Maria’s name was among the list of casualties. My beloved Granddaughter! They tell me her parting words were, “Bring hope to humanity”. I have decided that the keyword to activate the Gizoids free-will emotions-based AI program will be those very words. “Bring hope to humanity”. My poor, poor Maria!
A heritage of the past I dug out, “Gizoid”! And the ultimate life form I created by my own hands “Shadow”; I equipped both weapons with ‘heart’. If all powers are not obtained for oneself, but what is to be from heart’s that yearn for someone, I believe all conflicts should cease to exist. Please if anyone listening to my prayers: Bring hope to humanity.
