Freak-Out Friday: The Reunion

Things suck when you’re Silver the Hedgehog.

Especially when you’re forced into given the task to make a certain black hedgehog smile.

Comics by Missyuna and Idolnya, brought together by Shadow759!

MORE SONIC 4! Motobug animation found along with…music?

I’ll let the pictures do the talking!

Watch him in all his Stabby Stabby action!

and…some Wheezer?

By the looks from some of the xml tags on the site, it looks like the game will have 5 zones.

This is just bizarre. Anyway, cheers to the keen eyes of the Hawkz!

EDIT: Wheezer track’s gone. Oh well. It was Buddy Holly btw folks. Ooooweeeoooo….

SEGA blogs take the strain of heavy traffic on Hedgehog Day

The fans have flocked in their hundreds to the SEGA blog giveaway, with the lucky 333rd comment winning themselves a snazzy signed copy of Sonic 3. In fact they were so impressed with the traffic, that the competition was up’ed from every 50th entry winning a prize up to the 500th post to the 2500th!!!  RubyEclipse was impressed; “You guys literally broke our blogs for a few minutes from sheer traffic!”

The entries still need to be straightened out, with any spam posts getting deleted, so on Thursday the finalised list of winners will be announced – so if you’ve got a comment close to those limits, you will have to hold your breath until tomorrow to find out if you have nabbed some goodies!

I wonder though…with all this hype about this game possibly being titled Sonic 4…is it a coincidence they’re giving away copies of 3?

Stay tuned tomorrow for what will hopefully be a massive day of info on Needlemaus!

Final Needlemouse Challenge LIVE

The week long Needlemouse challenge speeds into it’s fourth and final day with one last quest for the Sonic Community to complete. This time the battleground is on Twitter. Oh, and bad luck to any Amy and Shade fans as they became the most recent Sonic characters to be rejected as playable characters.

Once again, RubyEclipse from the SEGA America Blog was on hand to give us the down-low on our challenge.

Day 4: Twitter (Difficulty: High)

Final Goal: Reply @SEGA on Twitter with a total of 1,000 correct answers!

Bonus Point Earned if correct replies break 1,250 responses, ORif #SEGA or #Needlemouse become trending topics!

How to create trending topics:Trending Topics on twitter are words or phrases that are the most frequently written. Put a # just before the word (ex: #SEGA) to contribute to a it’s rank. You can keep on talking to your friends and updating with #Needlemouse or #SEGA, and you will continue to raise the chance that they become trending topics on the front page of twitter!

Trivia – Final Set (Remember, reply to @SEGA on Twitter!)

1: If you locked Sonic 3 onto Sonic and Knuckles, what was the largest amount of emeralds you could collect from special stages?

2: Yuji Naka is credited with much of Sonic’s history, but who is the man that actually designed Sonic?

3:  During his creation, what was the Japanese name originally given to Sonic?

This is it, everyone! The final chance to get that last bonus point, and the day for us to show the world that the power of fans can accomplish amazing things.

The contest ends in 24 hours – let’s roll!

The questions are harder, the answers needed higher but it can be done. If you’re not a member of Twitter it’s easy enough to sign up and now is the perfect time to join. It might also be an idea to ask friends and family to help out if need be, we’ve done so well it would be a shame to fall at the final hurdle. Good luck all.

PS, my money is on Shadow being in, but that is the subject for another story entirely. The TSS writers are at war over who should remain…
