The Sonic Show: #100 – Top 5 Monsters

It’s a new a year in The Sonic Show offices (let’s pretend we have offices), and
what better way to start it off than this…

…something we released on our Youtube channel a few weeks ago. But don’t let that put you off, as it’s the return of the popular “Top 5″ feature. It’s also a time to welcome our two new friends on The Sonic Show team, Tanner and Fuad. So be nice and say hello!

#92 KNUCKLES vs CLASSIC SONIC: Sonic Generations

German website GamesWelt has shared some Sonic Generations gameplay footage which gives us our first look at the Knuckles race mission. The mission sees Classic Sonic try to beat the red echidna to the finish in a Green Hill Zone level that contains giant badniks that you’ll have to bounce on to get by or reach higher platforms. Knuckles will try to get ahead by using his digging ablity, so you’ll have to be quick.

There’s also a new remix of a song that those who have played Sonic R might recognise. We’ll let you find out what it is for yourselves.

#80 SONIC CD XBOX LIVE Trailer: Prequel to Sonic 4 Episode 2?

Does the trailer suggest that this will lead into the next episode of Sonic 4? Or are we reading to much into it? With Metal showing at the end of ep1 and now this, it would seem they want to jog out memories for episode 2.

Also with it coming out on every platform this is surely the work we heard ages ago from Taxman back 2009!?  Thoughts?

#79 New Sonic Generations trailer!!

While we attempt to sort out out youtube woes, that wont let us stop bringing you the videos you need! It’s time for some brand new level action for Sonic plus a cameo from BOTH Tails and a certain robot! Don’t forget to subscribe to our new channel just incase we lose our old one for good!

The Sonic Show victim of hacking failure.

Today it was noticed that our youtube account had been hacked into. Nothing much had changed, they altered the title of the profile and reset the channels skin. I quickly changed my password and restored these alterations. However approx 15 minutes laters, they had deleted my whole account. This account is 5 years old, and contains videos dating back to the beginning. At this moment in time they are all gone. While I do have a lot of them backed up, some are not. If the account cannot be restored then episodes like our Summer Of Sonic special will not be able to be reuploaded due to time limitation now placed on accounts after ours was created.

This is a huge blow for The Sonic Show, as someone has basically deleted our history, our existence.

 

We have emailed youtube requesting for account restoration thought youtube state that they will not restore the videos or comments. We now play the waiting game.

#77 Summer Of Sonic 2011 Retrospective Hour Special

Just think. It was only two weeks ago that a corner of London was swamped by Sonic fans. It was just two weeks ago that people who helped create Sonic, and people who were still making Sonic what he is today, had flown all the way from Japan to meet people whose lives they had influenced. It was just two weeks ago that over 1,000 came to Summer Of Sonic, and over 20,000 went to our site to watch it online. Basically, a lot of crap went down two weeks ago!

Of course, some things never change. Once again The Sonic Show was there to broadcast the event to those of you at home and once again we (in conjuction with Sonic Showcase Network) have compiled a selection of highlights into a “Best of”  hour special. Think of it as box of chocolates in video form, where we have taken out of the ones you don’t like. There are so many great moments this year that we couldn’t fit it all into one video. But don’t worry, they are all available too as bonus videos on our youtube channel.

So sit back, see if you can spot yourself, and enjoy!

#73 RED HEDGEHOG: Summer Of Sonic 2011 Special

This year the Evil Doc team put together a Red Hedgehog special in just 8 days! However it was in flash and our set up on the day couldn’t play it. Don’t worry though as we have it here for you to finally enjoy!

A history of ArchangelUK and The Sonic Show

Someone recently asked my why I picked on Kevin (best known as ArchangelUK) in one of our recent videos, as they found it a bit unfair. What they didn’t realise was that AAUK has been frequently popping up in this little podcast since the very beginning. I view AAUK as the lucky charm of The Sonic Show. Lets not forget that he was the first major Sonic site (Sonic Wrecks) to support the show, long before anyone else did! It’s his promotion that got SCD to see the show and begin its long journey to where it is today. Every so often we always feel it’s important we do a “Kev Kameo” (we spell it with a K intentionally okay?!?!) so while you may have only just noticed, lets take you through his many appearances (with and without his consent) in The Sonic Show’s timeline.

 

#1 The BIG crossover. 2007.

Back in 2007, The Sonic Show and Radio Redux merged into one big thing! Kevin hosted in his usual style and unsurprisingly The Sonic Show suddenly gained a ton of attention!

#2 The BIG crossdresser. 2008.

 

Hop along to early 2008 and we have our first “Kev Kameo”. Featured in season 2 of The Sonic Show, we for some reason got very bored.

#3 The BIG stroke. 2009

We managed to catch AAUK for a chat during Summer Of Sonic 2009. Bless him he was completely fucked and the day had only begun (yes it got worse, can you blame him from retiring from organising this thing!) but managed to show such energy for the event in his brief natter. He also sent a message direct to you guys who watched at home through The Sonic Show live stream getting everyone to wave and shout for Crush 40 to come (which worked).

#4 The BIG Afro. 2009

 

The Sonic Show site went offline for about a month while we did a whole site redo on a new server. In that time the site had one working video, our second “Kev Kameo”, in the form of AfroangelUK getting on the soul train.

#5 The BIG kidnap. 2009

In what is simply a bizarre and disturbing opening sequence to any episode we’ve done, AAUK discusses how much he loves the show. To the point that he will lay a trap and kidnap so he can take over my show. The next shot has me locked in an empty room tied and gagged by him… o_O

#6 The BIG sequel. 2009

We announced we had an exclusive launch trailer on the show. Which we did…. of course it was fake. And it featured our favourite “Kev Kameo”. We imagine this is how he worked at SEGA.

#7 The BIG stroke PART 2. 2010 

We interviewed AAUK the next year for our big Summer Of Sonic blowout. His answer for “How is it going”, pretty much sums up how his “I may collapse and die” metre was at it’s max, even if his charm says otherwise. He must love the fact we come up in his face every year when he’s really busy to ask how busy he is. If you’re reading this Kev, <3 your efforts these 4 years! We will be bothering you on June 25th, sticking a microphone in your face as your being taken out on a stretcher.

#8 The BIG rainbow. 2011

The most recent “Kev Kameo” is the oddest one. If you know Nyan Cat then you know what this is. We stuck it in at the end to see if people watch all the way through. It would appear they did!

So that’s AAUK’s numerous times with the show (that we can recall) forgetting all the mentions of Wrecks on our news segments. Will we continue to do it, yes. Why do we do it, because we <3 him and even though we only shove his face in on average once a year, we feel it’s a stupid nod to what he’s done for us. Well that’s our excuse anyway.

#64 SUMMER OF SONIC 2010 RETROSPECTIVE

The Sonic Show and Sonic Showcase Network once again join forces to shove a lot of Summer Of Sonic nostalgia from 2010! This year we head over to The Pavilion in London’s Shepherd’s Bush for our fun.

The delightful Roareye Black is our host for the run of the show, taking you through a tour of the Summer Of Sonic plus interview a lot of people from the Sonic community.

We also get to see the never shown on the day epic fest of Sonic Adventure 2 in brief, as well as enjoy the intro to last years event! Oh and there was one other thing… CRUSH 40 live in multi-angle epicness!!

So, if you didn’t get to go last year, or wanted to relive the magic, sit back and enjoy the next 50 minutes!

#63 Slingerland’s Corner: FAN CHARACTERS!

As part of our 5 year anniversary, we take a look back at the original Slingerland’s Corner. In this episode he tackles a big subject, Sonic fan characters. In fact he tackles one particular one, Evil The Hedgehog.

Slingerlands Corner may be a thing of the past, but you can now ask the ‘Answer Man’ you  Sonic questions! He answers a few of them through the site, but the best ones get answered in his upcoming video episodes! If you want to ask the Answer Man something, go to formspring.me/thesonicshow.

This game was originally made in the Really Amateur Games Expo in either 2008 or 2009. Which I found lurking on my pc, if anyone knows who made it please comment as Id love to credit them, even though its a pile of crap (intentionally!)

#62 Sonic 2 HD Teaser Trailer

For those of you who may not have noticed, this weekend saw the release of the first teaser trailer from Sonic 2 HD!  It has been in the works in one form or another as far back as 2007, and like a lot of fan projects we do wonder whether it will ever truly be finished, but you can’t deny how good this trailer looks! Interested (you should be), then check out their developer blog, their official site, or join their facebook page!
