Sonic Paradox Turns 10 Years Old! We React!

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIT8Bv-g1Dg[/youtube]

Every Monday, we upload a new video to our “Sonic Reacts” series. Members of the community sit and watch some weird and wonderful things and share their reaction with you the audience. We don’t usually post about these, but today’s is a very special edition.

^D5F25E49986C65A63A7A8DC0F83A4622261AB86D50578C14EA^pimgpsh_fullsize_distrYep, it has been ten glorious years since the inception of Sonic Paradox, so for today’s episode we (and two members of Sonic Paradox) watch back some of the best content to come from the Paradox team.

The Sonic Show have always been big fans of the S.P group. We debuted the “Knuckles Briefs” collection in 2009. And worked with a variety of their animators, including PiggyBank and The Wax. Not to mention Donnie. Never forget “The Don™”.

So here is to 10 more insane years of comedy and creativity from Sonic Paradox! Keep it up guys!

Sonic Dreams Collection Brings Your Fan Fiction Nightmares To Reality!

Ever wanted to play the games that SEGA never got around to finishing for the Dreamcast? Well now, finally, we all can!

Sonic Dreams Collection was released today by Arcane Kids, a  studio that is known for putting together “unique” little projects together, such as the return of Bubsy3D.

The concept in this new collection is that after years of lurking in the depths of development hell, a leak has caused these prototypes of the 90s to rise back to the surface. This unique group of games will see you creating your own original character, playing an MMO and not to mention the most interesting look into the world of fan fiction. Oh, did we mention things get weird very quickly?

If you’re so inclined, the “leak” can be found here with the password “grandpa”. If you aren’t in the mood for torturing your mind, and would rather watch someone else who’s brain was burnt along time ago, enjoy the videos below![youtube]https://youtu.be/qfKeWrvO57o?list=PL4T2Dd-NV0aZ8OGb03op34Ork4QAw5oQX[/youtube][youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-8jmFkAUYjE[/youtube][youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MT8jKmKD1Jg[/youtube]

Opinion Zone 12: Where are the Sonic fangirls?

WARNING: (Explicit Tag) (Contains strong language)

A silly question maybe to some. We see the “fanboys” everywhere, but with the recent news that a YouGov poll found more women to be fans of Sonic than men, we were just curious where are they?

Fan Game Gives Him a Nose Bleed

So we did our first live stream show in a long, long time and we were just going to post the highlight reel and be done.

However, during the stream we were playing a fan game, one so random and stupid (Evil The Hedgehog 2) that in the laughter, Tom got a nose bleed. It made us wonder really, what fan game have you seen that made you think, “What on earth is this world I live in?”.

The Top 5 Rejected Sonic Story Book Concepts

The storybook series was a short lived run of games on the Nintendo Wii, that threw Sonic into (seemingly random) classic stories. That series only lasted two games but that doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten about them.

While SEGA work out what they are doing with Sonic, maybe now is a good time to bring old blue back to the world of literature? So let’s go through our top 5 story book ideas!

Would you like to see the series return?  And if so, what classic tale are you dying to see Sonic and co jump into next?
