No, 06 was Shun Nakamura. Morio Kishimoto was Colors and Lost World.

Re: Revenge of the nerds

Does anyone have a VBA save file of Sonic Advance 3? While I'm updating the emerald chart I figured I'd replace the jpged emerald sprites (apparently I was lazy the first time and ripped half of it from here) and I seem to have erased my ROM some time ago.

Re: OH YES Sonic Mania

it's a game fir us not the casual and core fanbase. People who played Sonic 4 and claimed it was a good call back won't "get it." I'm with Dr. Bugman. I don't think it's so much that these people prefer modern Sonic gameplay or aesthetics as it is that they're a bunch of undiscerning paint guzzlers...

Re: OH YES Sonic Mania

Thanks Wombat! I've also recruited someone to go through Tails's story in SA1 and grab good shots of the emeralds around the shrine in the past, so I think we'll be good on those games.

Re: OH YES Sonic Mania

There's an odd little detail to the "Blue Spheres" Chaos Emeralds that isn't mentioned on the chart. In Sonic 3 stand-alone, the second emerald is yellow. Orange is the unused one. Ok, that IS worth fixing. Might as well fix Sonic R and grab screenshots of the Adventure games while I'm at it. Damn ...

Re: OH YES Sonic Mania

er, I was focusing on the colors alone. 3&K are the only ones that fit chromatically, I should've said! Oh, wow, the orange emerald is back? Now that really IS odd. And unlike when Sonic Team uses random colors, I don't think Taxman's team could possibly have done this unintentionally. I wonder if ...

Re: OH YES Sonic Mania

They seem to be the set found exclusively in 3&K. No, these have a hexagonal top, whereas the ones from Sonic 1, 3&K, if we assume we're looking at a diamond-shape from the top down, are definitely octagonal. The only way they could arguably be hexagonal is if we're looking at them from an isometri...

Re: Just sitting here wasting our precious time

So it's been ten years, give or take a couple of weeks. Sega Enterprises, for all intents and purposes, died about three years ago, but The GHZ yet pulses with life. Sonic the Hedgehog ceased to be relevant roughly eight years ago, but The GHZ still stumbles blindly into fiery blue damnation. Every...

We have achieved full parody. It is somehow consoling that Emperor Iizuka has been the one to finally bring us across this line, though some more bad jokes from Pontac would complete the circle.

Re: OH YES Sonic Mania

SEGA and the dev team lead by Christian agreed to my proposal for Sonic Mania. Before releasing ‘Sonic Forces', the big title by Sonic Team in 2017, SEGA wanted to bring back core fans to Sonic. This is where the idea of 2D Sonic revival came from. I find it hilarious that this long-awaited return ...

I wish they had used Green Hill Zone and not some generic city. Wouldn't it be neat if every zone was a destroyed/mechanized/eggified version of a classic zone?

I actually never counted Popcorn Machine as a game, though I do hope that gets found someday. Any appearance of the Tornado is noteworthy. Was this just recently discovered? Anyone reaching out to the owner?
