Sonic Paradox Reclaims Their Old YouTube Channel, Only for Eggman to Hijack It

sonicparadoxchannelreturns
Alternatively: Sonic Paradox got its old channel back, and uploaded a fun little Eggman animation to celebrate! Watch it below!

Around a year and a half ago, longtime Sonic fan animation community Sonic Paradox had its collective YouTube channel hacked into and stolen.  Hopes of reclaiming their old network would fade with Google technical support not being of any help, and a backup channel was made from that point on.

Thanks to their YouTube partner over the course of the past few months, however everything is now right as rain again: Sonic Paradox has its old channel back!

Well, almost. Rotund evil genius Doctor Eggman just took control of the recently reclaimed Sonic Paradox channel while the staff busied themselves with undoing the damage caused by the original hacker; with their attention focused elsewhere, Robotnik announced his plans to overthrow the Sonic Paradox “dictatorship” and start a new series of Robotnik Shorts. His plan goes about as well as you’d expect, but don’t take my word for it: give it a watch below and see for yourself!

As for what will happen to the videos on Sonic Paradox’s backup YouTube channel, widescreen HD remasters of the original Sonic Shorts Volumes (plus the Knuckles Briefs!), they will be reuploaded onto their reclaimed channel in due time. The backup account, in the future, will instead cater more to livestreaming.

Be sure to subscribe to the returned Sonic Paradox YouTube channel for hilarious Sonic shorts and more in the future!

Brotherhoods, Werehogs, and Paradoxes – The Animations of Summer of Sonic 2013

Summer Of Sonic 2013: TAILS DOLL INTRO

“Aha!” is right!

We’ve managed to provide a steady stream of content coming from Summer of Sonic 2013. Be it the interviews we’ve held with Takashi Iizuka and Metal Sonic creator Kazuyuki Hoshino, the exclusive Lost World trailer or the Special Effects auction, there’s still one crucial piece we have yet to cover – the fan-made animations!

Presented throughout the day, these four works were showcased on the main stage, starting off with the Sonic the Comic-themed intro Boozerman and The Sonic Show provided above.

In order of appearance!

First up is one of two projects the folks at Sonic Paradox put together for the occasion, this one being a follow-up to last year’s Sonic Heroes music video-slash-parody-slash-tribute, Seaside Denied! With Eggman’s forces scattered throughout Grand Metropolis, join Teams Sonic (792Ashman), Dark (Whitesonic), Rose (RGX), and Chaotix (TheWax) once more as they tear through the HEXAeco city in their latest musical romp, Metropolis Mayhem!

As Eggman pulls a fast one on the Blue Blur and unleashes yet another monster of the week, it’s up to a lycanthropic Sonic and his amnesiac best friend to save the world! Featuring the voice works of GameBuddy, Psyguy, CrikeyDave, Kirbopher, Euan Kennedy and Mana the Dark Magician Girl, second in line is the newest entry to Frobman‘s In Brief series – Sonic Unleashed in Brief!

Sonic Unleashed in Brief

And now, the motherload, and this one was a long time coming. Now online in its entirety, featuring a slew of shorts not shown at Summer of Sonic (as well as the final short in all of its uncensored glory), is a project many thought would never see the light of day. Wait no longer, for the animation community at Sonic Paradox has finally unveiled the fruits of their labour after almost three years in the making! Without further ado, here’s the latest entry to their trademark short compilations – Sonic Shorts Volume 8!

Sonic Shorts – Volume 8

After 5 years of gut-busting hilarity, it’s been a damn good run for the Sonic Shorts series, to which I can now say “Good night, sweet prince” – for the time being. All the best to Sonic Paradox with their future projects.

Bring on the SEGA Shorts!

Sonic Shorts: Volume 6!

The talented artists at Sonic Paradox have released the 6th episode of their wildly popular flash collab series.  You may remember “volume 6” appearing back on April Fool’s Day, but I promise that this one is the real deal.  Nobody gets a stiffy this time around.

It has been over a year since Volume 5 and Volume 6 is worth the wait.  Some of my personal favorites:

  • The intro parodying SA2’s story intro is absolutely amazing.
  • If the world needed to see anything, it was Robotnik working for the weekend.
  • “Rejected” is awesome.  Sonic characters doing “Rejected” is awesome.
  • ChakraX’s “How to Create a Fancharacter” deserves a Sonic Site Award.  All of them.

Keep it up, guys.  Don’t keep us waiting so long for Volume 7!  Wait, I have no room to talk.  I’m the king of making people wait.

Watch Sonic Shorts: Volume 6 on Newgrounds!

Also, all you Sonic fan-artists out there should support Project 20, Sonic Paradox’s 20th birthday celebration!

Sonic Paradox Unveils “Project 20!”

I know that we just celebrated Sonic’s 19th, but the guys over at Sonic Paradox are preparing for a 20th birthday celebration!  What is “Project 20?”  Check out this press release from the Sonic Paradox administrators:

It has been almost 20 years since the blue hedgehog started running on our televisions at supersonic speeds, and June 23rd, 2011 will be his landmark 20th anniversary! For the past two decades, Sonic fans have been celebrating anniversaries by creating artwork, music and videos! Sonic Paradox, home of the Sonic Shorts, would like to introduce “Project 20.”

What is “Project 20?”

Project 20 will be the BIGGEST collaboration and celebration within the Sonic Community ever! That is right! BIGGEST! Our goal is to have the entire Sonic Community united for this special occasion and everyone is invited to participate! We’ll be having two main projects and more community events we’ll announce later!

The first project is the “Picture Collab”. This huge collaboration will contain at least 100 or more artists drawing Sonic in any style in a group for one giant wallpaper! The second collaboration is something new that we’re introducing at Sonic Paradox, the “Music Collab!” We’ll be making a giant album that will contain re-masters, remixes, vocal tracks and original music!

We already have some of the best and well-known artists from the community, both inside and outside of Sonic Paradox, so you don’t wanna miss out!

When can I start and when is the deadline?

As of today, we are accepting submissions and the deadline for both projects will be April 15th, 2011. Just be sure to read the rules and guidelines!

What if I’m not an artist or musician?

No worries! Sonic fans can post videos, photos and their favorite memories from the Sonic series! We’ll also take the best of these and post them on our “Project 20” website when it launches!

Neat! How can I be a part of Project 20?

Simple! All you have to do is register here at the Sonic Paradox Forums!

Are you down for Project 20?  I know I am.

Watch Sonic Paradox: Knuckles Briefs on the Sonic Show!

sonicshorts

The guys over at Sonic Paradox are really pulling out all the stops at the moment to bring us a Summer of Sonic special set of Sonic Briefs: Knuckles Shorts! Feast your eyes on yet another side-splitting host of hillarious flash animations over at the Sonic Show!

So what are you waiting for! Get over there and watch it!  Just try not to get stuck on the loading screen punching Sonic on the toilet over and over and over…

#33 Sonic Paradox Presents: Knuckles Briefs!

The Sonic Show is PREMIERING Knuckles Briefs? Great… but what on earth is that?!

Knuckles Briefs is a collab created by all of you’re favourite (or more likely, hated) Sonic characters. Knuckles is fed up of the attention brought to Sonic through the acclaimed series, ‘Sonic Shorts’ and has decided to have his own collection of “briefs”.

But seriously, what the hell is it?

Knuckles Briefs is collection of hilarious shorts by the Sonic Paradox team. Sonic Paradox are known for many things in the community, most notable being the Sonic Shorts and Sonic Tribute collections. This flash was created for the Summer Of Sonic event, however unfortunately never made it’s appearence on the day. But fret not as we can finally share it with you here!

Sonic Paradox… sounds familiar.

I should hope so, Sonic  Paradox has been around since 2006, though the first collaboration was the “Tribute Collab 1″ back in 2005. Their forum was created by Lilmario and The Wax created the main site. The first project was started by Sweet_Kat22 from Newgrounds. She, however, has moved on from Sonic Paradox.

When Sweet_Kat22 dropped down from being leader, HyperactiveYouth (known for Sonic: Uncut 1, 2 and 3) stepped in, becoming the 2nd leader in charge of Sonic Tribute Collab 2. However, due to development hell, HyperactiveYouth stepped down as well and their longest in service member, Bit-Master, became the 3rd leader. Due to slow progress, he stepped down from being leader to co-leader with their current leader, The Wax (known for Full Metal Sonic, Sonic Halo, and Sonic: Dark Chaos, and a variety of shorts). The Wax is the creator of the Sonic Short Volumes you all know and love.

Watch “Sonic Shorts: Volume 5!”

Front paged on Newgrounds is the fifth installment in Sonic Paradox’s “Sonic Shorts” series, a flash comedy series with plenty of inside jokes for the avid Sonic fan.  This episode jams twenty-one shorts into one fun package.  The menu is really fuckin’ awesome to watch, too.  I just about died at the “lol jetboots” portion of the menu.  Who at SEGA came up with those damn things?

sonicshortsknuxyes

The new meme of 2009. Right here.

Skits include another trip to the Olympic games, why Sonic can’t swim (again), a peak into the lives of badniks, Sonic’s reactions to people confusing him as Shadow, and the destruction of Sonic X.

Chris Thorndike should get his own TV show.  Srsly, guys.  Srsly.

Community Interview: Sonic Paradox

sonicparadox

TSS is bringing back community interviews (omg more exclusive content)!  Aside from speaking with specific individuals, I’ll be talking to the heads of Sonic communities that you may not of heard of in “Know Your Sonic Sites.”  Today’s featured community is Sonic Paradox, a Sonic site that specializes in Sonic flash animation.  I’ll be interviewing one of its staff members, RGXSuperSonic.  Yeah, he’s my flash man for Nexus.  I’m playing it safe for the first one and, plus, I never heard of Paradox until he joined the team.  Time to feed my curiosity!
