Sonic’s 10th Anniversary: Sega’s Rivals

In the past, Sega has had tough competition from an old respected rival called Nintendo. Consequently, Sonic and Mario were constantly fighting for the Number One spot in people’s lives (of course, the hedgehog won). But aside from Ninty, who have been Sega and Sonic’s rivals, past and new? Well, here’s the lowdown on the bad boys. Continue reading Sonic’s 10th Anniversary: Sega’s Rivals

Sonic’s 10th Anniversary: Unforgettable Moments

Ah, the joys of playing Sonic the Hedgehog. Doesn’t matter if it was on Master System, Mega Drive, NGPC, Dreamcast or any other Sega console in the past, it’s always been a wonderful time. The marvellous adventures that loyal Sonic fans have had playing through the Sonic Adventure 2 Demo; finally getting to the climax of Sonic 3 & Knuckles… Playing Sonic has brought nothing but fond memories for the casual, or even Sonic-fanatic, gamer. Continue reading Sonic’s 10th Anniversary: Unforgettable Moments

It looks like The Sonic Stadium could be a cool new home for hoaxes. Today, on Sonic’s 10th Anniversary no less, we decided to update this part of the ‘Club with a whole slew of new hoaxes.

Fan Game Preview: Sonic S-V2

The demo for Diablo’s upcoming fan game is now out in the wild, and I must say, it plays very well. Only Sonic is playable right now, but in the finished game you’ll be able to play as one of three other heroes too – Diablo, Blaze and Hez Hedgehog (with a secret fifth character hinted at by Diablo). All four characters have different jump and speed attributes, meaning that completing some levels may prove more difficult for some characters. Continue reading Fan Game Preview: Sonic S-V2

Dreadknux’s Diaries: Soon to Relaunch With Sonic Fan Club

This is a series of personal blogs written by Dreadknux during the formative years of The Sonic Stadium. It chronicles significant events in the website’s early life.

I figured I should make up a new project that should involve the whole of the Sonic community. After all, that is what I’m here for. I looked at all the Fan submission sites – SFGHQ, SSRG, etc, and I thought why not have a fan submission section where ALL the aspects of Sonic fandom are included? It does make sense right? And thus, the Sonic Fan Club was born, and the first of its kind. 😀 Continue reading Dreadknux’s Diaries: Soon to Relaunch With Sonic Fan Club

Play as Sonic in These PC Mods for Quake and Star Trek

The great thing about the PC gaming community is that fans can create new (unofficial) content for their favourite games if they get bored. One particular PC user, known as Ryan ‘Kaos’ Daniel, has created character skins for FPS titles Quake III Arena and Star Trek: Elite Forces that allow you to play as the blue blur. Sonic with a shotgun! Continue reading Play as Sonic in These PC Mods for Quake and Star Trek

Fan Game Preview: Sonic Robo Blast 2

Sonic Robo Blast 2 is by far the most ambitious, graphically impressive Sonic the Hedgehog fan game to date, and shows a massive step up from Sonic Team Junior’s last title, Sonic Robo Blast. The story here centres on a ‘Black Rock’ floating through space, which Eggman decides to use as the perfect base with which to refocus his efforts to attack the planet. Continue reading Fan Game Preview: Sonic Robo Blast 2

Dreadknux’s Diaries: The Twist of Fate

This is a series of personal blogs written by Dreadknux during the formative years of The Sonic Stadium. It chronicles significant events in the website’s early life.

The good kind of ‘fate’, of course. I decided to take a break from updating TSS, and leave the site alone for the next couple of months. I mean, I love building websites, but I consider my GCSE grades to be of the highest priority. So the plan was to tell the visitors I’d be leaving temporarily, and that I’d be back in time for my birthday. Continue reading Dreadknux’s Diaries: The Twist of Fate

SAGE 2: Complete Coverage

It’s time for the opening of the second ever Sonic Amateur Games Expo. I felt a bit silly for missing the show six months ago, so I thought I’d give you full coverage this time around. And, to tell the truth, I’m glad. SAGE 2 was a lot more successful than its predecessor – although a technical hitch did occur during this year’s show, by and large it was a barnstorming success.

So, what can we expect from all the budding Sonic Fan Game developers then? It’s a good job we’re here – take a look after the jump. Continue reading SAGE 2: Complete Coverage

Sonic Amateur Games Expo Opens For A Second Show

Last year, a bunch of cool fan game community guys organised an online event called the Sonic Amateur Games Expo. It was a showcase of upcoming projects that put Sonic into various fan-created gaming scenarios. Well, it was so popular that it’s coming back for a second run this year! Continue reading Sonic Amateur Games Expo Opens For A Second Show

Dreadknux’s Diaries: The False Move

This is a series of personal blogs written by Dreadknux during the formative years of The Sonic Stadium. It chronicles significant events in the website’s early life.

Greed had a part to play in this one. For the ‘new’ look, I needed a server that was bigger than Angelfire’s 50MB. This was where I started to get greedy, and set off to look for servers that had unlimited web space, but without the annoying ad banners. Pop Ups would be OK though. I found many solutions, but they would not offer space for MP3 files which cheesed me off big time.

Then I found it – the biggest mistake of my life. Continue reading Dreadknux’s Diaries: The False Move

Dreadknux’s Diaries: The Beginning of the Future…

This is a series of personal blogs written by Dreadknux during the formative years of The Sonic Stadium. It chronicles significant events in the website’s early life.

If you recall back to December 2000 (or simply look at my ‘dairy entries’ for that month) you’ll notice that the Sonic Stadium got a fair few visitors to start off with, and then it all started going downhill. Worse, no-one appeared at the Message Board, no-one was listening to the guff-sounding ‘Sonic Groove Choons FM’ (can’t blame them), and I was designing a new look site in the hope that it may bring back visitors. Continue reading Dreadknux’s Diaries: The Beginning of the Future…

Fan Game Review: Sonanoid

Sonanoid is based on the simple concept of Arkanoid. Wow. Use a ‘bat’ and ‘ball’ to hit blocks etc in the air. How… Fun… Zzzzzzzzz… I’m being a jerk obviously – actually Sonanoid is quite addictive, and H Hog has produced a rather fun game with a lovely Sonic twist. Gone are the usual blocks from other brick-busting games, and in come original Sonic items. Continue reading Fan Game Review: Sonanoid

Dreadknux’s Diaries: The Year 2000 Recap

This is a series of personal blogs written by Dreadknux during the formative years of The Sonic Stadium. It chronicles significant events in the website’s early life.

15th June 2000: Pre-Launch Prelude: I have always been a fan of Sonic. Always. Ever since the very first Sega home console, the Master System, which I bought instead of a Mega Drive. As the PlayStation started to take over, ‘Sonic mania’ died down. I got a Sega Saturn and N64, and enjoyed them both, but the love for Sonic slowly started to dwindle as I grew up. As an early teenager, Sonic’s image started to became too… childish. Continue reading Dreadknux’s Diaries: The Year 2000 Recap

Well, this is my first update, and I’m pretty much settling into my web home, it’s very nice. A few of you have replied back to me and commented on my website, and (thank goodness ^_^) people seem to like it a lot.

Welcome To The Sonic Stadium!

Hey dudes, and welcome to the Sonic Stadium! This website is about everything Sonic! As you probably have guessed, this website has just been born, but it will soon expand. There’s plenty of Super Sonic stuff on show here. Click on a link and you’ll be taken there at Sonic speed!
