There are plenty of reasons to be cheerful at this turn of the new decade. Not only is there an open road for a line of upcoming Sonic games to come and excite us, but this year also marks the 20th anniversary of this very website. It doesn’t feel that long ago that we were celebrating our 10th anniversary!
Continue reading 2020 is The Sonic Stadium’s 20th Anniversary! A Year of Festivities!
It’s now officially the 24th October (in the UK, that is). That means only one thing. It’s the birthday of this humble little website about a speedy blue hedgehog, innit. We launched all the way back in the year 2000, which makes us 19 YEARS OLD today. I think we need a lie down, we’re getting too old for this. Continue reading Happy Birthday to Us! We Are 19 Years Old Today!
That’s right! On this very day, at the turn of the new millennium, The Sonic Stadium formally opened its virtual doors to the world. It was a very different world back then – people used Yahoo to search for things online instead of Google, Napster was the fresh new way to download music (not altogether legally), the hottest ‘meme’ was the Hampster Dance and the Sonic online community was just getting started. Continue reading Happy 18th Birthday, The Sonic Stadium!
Possibly the greatest new character ever. One of our own becomes one of Sonic’s newest friends. Continue reading Freak-Out Friday: Sonic’s Greatest New Friend
Want to see what the amazing Sonic Generations Collector’s Edition contains? Well, let us give you a little tour! TSS’ very own Dreadknux was invited to SEGA’s offices to film an unboxing video. He clearly loved the package, and for those of you in the US this might be the closest you can get to one so be sure to give it a good watch. Continue reading Watch Dreadknux Unbox The Sonic Generations Collector’s Edition
Well, it only took a week and a half, but we’re back online! I want to thank you guys for your AMAZING patience here – we had heard comments for months about how sluggish TSS was becoming, so we decided to do something about it. As you can see, the site’s loading a lot quicker now, so we can resume our usual, mental, Sonic fanatical service. Yeah! High five! Continue reading Pardon the Hiccup
There’s only a few months to go until the biggest Sonic the Hedgehog fan party hits London – the Summer of Sonic 2011! Hosted by The Sonic Stadium, Sonic Wrecks, SEGA and the Sonic fan community, we’re working hard to make this year’s event the best ever! Continue reading Summer of Sonic Facebook Event Emerges – Register Your Interest
You’ve seen me go on and on for a good while now about how Roger Craig Smith’s voicework as Sonic the Hedgehog is one of the many highlights of the upcoming Sonic Colours. Today, I’m proud to say that you will finally get a chance to see what I’m talking about – SEGA has kindly released the first ever cutscene trailer for the game, complete with fourth wall-breaking gags. Continue reading Joint World Exclusive: First Sonic Colours Cutscene Footage
OK, it’s ‘Announcement Time’ with everyone’s favourite echidna. Erm, yes. ^^ Right, first off: Sonic Battle Stadium Season II. Creation of the new season’s rules are well underway and should be finished very soon. I’m hoping to launch the new Season next week – probably Saturday. Continue reading TSS UPDATE: SSNG and Sonic Battle Stadium Season II Launch Dates!
In Sonic Battle Stadium news… I closed the topic of the Final Battle so that no-one can sneak in and change anything. I want to totally supervise this event, for one thing, and also, the number of battlers was decreasing more and more. Continue reading SSMB UPDATE: Conclusion of SBS Final Battle… NEXT WEEK
Hee hee! The time is almost upon us! SSNG is soon to be unveiled in a matter of a month! Here’s the lowdown for those that don’t know what SSNG is: There has been some rumours about a new Sonic site emerging. The first announcement of this came from TSSZ, when Sonic News and The Sonic Stadium, both very respected Sonic fan sites, closed down for no apparent reason, unexpectedly. Continue reading The Sonic Stadium News Group – It’s Coming, Baby…
You’ll notice that I changed the order of the forums a bit. Why has the SBS got a section to its own? You’ll find out soon enough. Also, go to the SBS now – post your stats to the run up to the final battle – read the new stat rules first for that match though!
Well, later on today anyway. The Radio Station has taken a turn for the better – and a new site has been launched today – it really does look awesome! Continue reading Sega Sonic Radio is BACK ONLINE!
Right, now that a lot of recent drama has been dealt with, we return back to normality, and what matters most – KICKING EACH OTHERS’ BUTTS! Oh, and new Moderators too, you’ve been waiting for that. Continue reading SSMB UPDATE: Alrighty then! New MODS, and dates for the FINAL BATTLE!
Right, I said I was going to do this often, and now I am. To give people a fair chance, I am getting rid of the current mods and admins and re-instating new ones. The reason for this is not because the current ones are bad in any way – you were excellent. But I want this place to be of equal to all, and this is why I am doing it, so don’t whinge, OK? Continue reading SSMB UPDATE: Mods and Admins Re-Instated
It certainly looks more ‘clean’ than before, when it looked all over the place. ^_^ As you can see, I’ve shrunk the forum pictures, with an intro to the side (looks better that way), and kept the new SSMB title logo (I was going to use that specifically for the new MB, but now I thought it’d look cool at where it most deserves to be – the REAL SSMB). Continue reading SSMB Update: SSMB’s New Look Complete. You like it?
I know, I haven’t managed to get Ikonboard and Woltlab working in front of you and the YaBB seems to be the best one at working at the moment at showcase (THAT DOESN’T MEAN I’VE CHOSEN YABB!) Continue reading SSMB Update: A New MB Has Been Chosen! Prepare Yourselves…
Right, last time I spoke on this matter I was torn between three main MBs to replace SSMB (over time). The three were: YaBB, IkonBoard and Woltlab. The first of the three, the YaBB one, is now fully configured and functional. Try it out now, because this may be the board that could be the new home for you lot! Continue reading SSMB Update: Rargh! First Nomination for Replacement Board Here!
Right, I want everyone in the entire Message Board to read this message, so if you know anyone who has not read this topic yet, then direct them right here. Also, keep this topic bumped for as long as possible please, because as Head of the SSMB, this message to all of you is important to everyone, newbies and oldies. Continue reading SSMB Update: Please Guys, Just… Trust Me
Let’s face it, Ezboard has been fun hasn’t it? We’ve had some quality chatting, some excellent battling and even some hilarious fluffing. But times change. People change… *SLAP* Ow. Ezboard is getting slower and slower by the minute (and I don’t think it’s by accident – stupid assholes want our money so bad…). I know because it even bogs down on my connection… and I have BROADBAND >_< Continue reading SSMB Update: We’re All Moving Boards Soon…
What’s Up everyone? Yes, it’s that time of year again, you go and buy presents for others *groan*, but then you get some really cool ones in return! Yippee! Unless your granny misread the Sonic Advance you asked for and she gets you ‘Carvello’s Putting Challenge’ instead. ^_^ Continue reading TSS UPDATE: Merry Christmas!
Hey everyone, and welcome to the Sonic Stadium’s month-late Birthday party! The Music Zone’s up and fully online, all the new MIDIs are present, so have a whale of a time! Deeply sorry for keeping you waiting this long for them, but Topcities are dump, so, there. More hoaxes from Ultimo and Ace Fox, more links, and the Surgeon you love to hate, Dr. Dre(ad) is back and answering your questions! Continue reading TSS UPDATE: Happy (late) Birthday to The Sonic Stadium!
Added Ace Fox to the Sonic Hoaxers Club, and updated Welsh Sonic’s Page. Myself and Neon Chaos, the webmaster of none other than Shadow of a Hedgehog are in talks of a SOAH and Sonic Stadium hybrid site, expect a trial week of the hybrid site to begin in the New Year, as a celebration.
Sonic Fan Club NewsDesk has news of online comics and a fan game, The Games section has had a complete overhaul, The Mega Drive Sonic Games pages have been changed at the moment, go see them, they look awesome!
Cyber Sonic and Welsh Sonic has been added to the Sonic Hoaxers Club, and more links added to the Sonic Directory. Also, Sega Sonic Radio is now a member of The ‘Zone Radio Network!
Gah! No sooner had I announced the opening of The Sonic Site Awards: PHASE II, than I get attacked by literally hundreds of emails! Still, nice to see you all taking an interest at least. To say the SSA is fast becoming a success is a bit of an understatement. Continue reading TSS UPDATE: Sonic Site Awards, Sega Sonic Radio and Sonic Fan Club Goodness!
I decided to open a new Topcities account, because if I put the new midis in my current one, there won’t be any room left for those quality pages I keep coming up with ;P So that’s what I did. I updated with the news, and soon after Topcities deleted my new account, along with some other innocents. Why? Only God knows, it seems. Next month, I will sort this thing out, this is getting out of hand. Continue reading TSS UPDATE: Topcities Catches Music Account Bother
Hi you all. I feel fantastic!!! Know why? Because, I’ve buggered off from my old school to a spangly new College! Ya….y? Excellent news, I flew right through my GCSE exams it seems, with my lowest grade a C. I literally have about 9-10 GCSEs, but it doesn’t really feel like I’ve done anything at all. I still feel like… me. And, I also feel great because I’ve changed the look of this place a little, and something about Sonic SatAM you may want to read… Continue reading TSS Update: Moving On Up, Moving On Out…
My Birthday has passed, and I am extremely happy. Not only does the Linkin Park album rock to hell (well, I kinda knew that anyway) but I also bagged myself a Game Boy Advance. I’ve yet to play any GBA games for it though – I could only afford a trade in, but I still got some of my GBC games. Just gotta get a GBA game next week then. Sigh. Continue reading TSS Update: Birthday Bonanza, Sonic Site Awards Launched
Yes, the greatest Fan Fair to hit the internet has opened right here in the Sonic Stadium, and as the Sonic site itself re-opens after a refreshing e-makeover. Continue reading Sonic Fan Club Opens
Remember the good old days, when you could use a third party cheat cartridge to expand the limits of what you could do in your favourite Mega Drive games? We do! Which is why we’ve updated the Games Back Catalogue on The Sonic Stadium with a range of codes that you can use on Game Genie carts to play around with some classic Sonic titles.
Continue reading Games Update: Classic Cheat Codes for Your Mega Drive Games
We’ve not opened the doors to this new section of the Sonic Fan Club for long, and already we have had a huge amount of contributions! 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.
Continue reading Sonic Hoaxers Club Update: A Slew of Fresh New Talent
Hi everyone, I’m back, and I feel great! For four reasons.
1. My GCSE’s are over!
2. It’s the Summer Holidays!
3. The Sonic Stadium’s back, and kicking ass!
4. Sonic Adventure 2 is coming out TODAY!!!
My God, I’m glad I’m back, I haven’t seen you for so long, it’s unbelievable. You must be glad your holidays are here too! Continue reading TSS UPDATE: Sonic Adventure 2 Hits Today!
I’ve been flipping through recent Nintendo mags and other sources, and have uncovered a bunch of new screenshots of Sonic Advance for Game Boy Advance. You can check them out in the preview of Sonic Advance. Meanwhile Sonic Adventure 2, the other most important Sonic release this year, is nearly with us in Europe and is looking the bomb! We’re nearly there, fellow fans, don’t fret…
Welcome to the Sonic Stadium! The place that’s kicking with ALL the right vibes this start of spring! Well well now, what do I find in my e-mail inbox earlier on this month but a piece of fan art! Great! This’ll be the first Sonic fan-pic in Sonic Stadium history. I’ve also added my own, so now you have no reason to not send any in!
