Sunday (April Fools Day)

- Plushies used in a Sonic Adventure promotional advert turned up in a lost tribal village!
- But sadly… Big the Cat was put into retirement… Oh sad… … … why are you still reading the Sunday section?
Yes we had some fun and games with April Fools Day. But did you spot some of the hidden references and links in our updates? Have a look at T-Bird’s Right Said Fred update the title of the new Crush 40 album… could that be an anagram? And that colon by the word ‘glory’ is… is that a link?
As for the lost sonic plushies story. I put a few clues and references in there. How many did you spot? Explorer Drake Croft, know any video game explorers with those names? Kazuma Kiryu corporation? Hmm? Who could that be? Photographer Frank West, didn’t he used to cover wars? Finally, the tribe called Sonic “Ffyliaid Ebrill” I wonder what would happen if you put that in google translate, and translate it from Welsh to English.
See you next week!
