2009’s almost out. That means we’ve enjoyed a whole decade of Sonic the Hedgehog goodness in the last ten years, from 2000’s Sonic Shuffle (for Americans, we didn’t get it until the year after, damn SEGA) to 2009’s Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games. So, rather than just round up the games of the year, The Sonic Stadium crew have taken to list their Top 10 Sonic games of the decade!
This is how we’ve done it. A bunch of TSS Staffers wrote over their unique Top 10 (which will be listed at the end of this article). Along with it, a short paragraph as to why they ranked each game the way they did. When bunching all of these lists together, we formed an average by giving points to each game’s placement on each staffer’s countdown (so a #1 position would get 10 points, and a game in 10th place would get 1 point). Add all the points up, and we have our own, not-so-scientific average. What game will get TSS’ #1 Sonic Game of the Decade? Read on, dear reader… Continue reading The Top 10 Sonic Games Of The Decade
Righty then. Wednesday. Sonic Scansday. Been missed a few times. So here we go – enjoy the huge deluge of scans we have for you this week. We have new boxart for SA2Battle, Sonic DX and Mega Collection, thanks to Rally the Cheetah. Then we have new Scanned Material for Sonic Heroes (8 pieces), Sonic DX (2 pieces) from Psychobob, and a music page on theSupersonic EP, a Sonic single that was released in the UK, with scans also by Psychobob.
Finally today, the Sonic Sprites section had a few sheets added to it – expect the amount of sprite sheets to balloon over the next few days too. We have a dedicated sprite ripper – Dark Sonic – to help out with the creation of sprite sheets for new Sonic games, so expect some more Sonic Advance 3 sheets soon. As for the gaps, they will be filled very quickly. More scans to come tomorrow – including a whole TON of new Sonic Comic material, including scans from a very intruiging SEGA Manga that I acquired some time ago! Make sure you don’t miss it!
This has prolly been mentioned in every other website and board under the sun, but… more info on Sonic Mega Collection!
The game’ll come with:
- Sonic 1
- Sonic 2
- Sonic 3
- Sonic & Knuckles
- Sonic 3D Flickies Island
- Sonic Spinball
- Mean Bean Machine
+ Two unlockable games – Flicky and Ristar. Yes, Ristar! Continue reading Sonic Mega Collection Details
This is the official list from Sonic Team’s Mega Collection site, the compilation game will include Sonic 1-3, Sonic and Knuckles, Sonic 3D Blast, Sonic Spinball, and Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine.

The games to be included are some of the main platformers, but come on Sonic Team. Theres so much you could of included to make this game very impressive. Like including Knuckles Chaotix, or the two rare arcade games of Sonic the Fighters and SegaSonic Arcade. Also, if your gonna have Game gear games, why Sonic Drift? Lets hope there’ll be more added before it’s released.
This article comes from Gaming Age:
Nintendo seems to be the company of choice for Sonic Team’s blue hedgehog hero; Sega has announced titles spinning the critter onto the hardware maker’s platforms. Sonic Adventure (the original) and Sonic Mega Collection are headed to the GameCube and Sonic Advance 2 for the Game Boy Advance.
Japan will be receiving Sonic Mega Collection and Sonic Advance 2 at the end of the year, while Sonic Adventure does not yet have a release date. The contents of the proposed collection or what types of upgrades we can expect from the Sonic Adventure port have not yet been announced, nor has any prospective US releases.
Get excited, 3 more Sonic games, don’t forget that mystery title as well! Keep visiting The Sonic Stadium for more news.
