The Sonic Statue has been delayed 10 days (now to the tenth of October). I think i'll get held back till december which is what the makers say but let's see.. i am getting fed up with all these companys not putting the correct release dates (and when the Companys that make them tell me the right release date and say they have tried to tell the sellers that date, i get REALLY fed up)..<br /><br />i shouldn't be writing this though.. am meant to be taking it easy for the rest of today... ^_^; Minor Op went okay by the way..
Updated the 5 STC Covers we were missing in the STC Comic Page.. and OH, what a surprised.. they are all Mick McMahon covers.. no wonder i was in no rush.... but anyway, they are done now so we have complete 0-184 complete.. No, we don't have the 'reprint' covers.. they were new though the comics weren't.. i guess we should bother at some point but all my information falls down because i wasn't gonna pay more money for what i already had.. Most people i know that was still getting the comic went the same way right then..
i have noticed that i seamed to have forgotten about alot of 'others' games and am i currently doing some updates for them.. due to events which will be happening the next few days, i'll say ones have started to appear and will probbly appear over the time when and if i can. One is already up now ^_^ Enjoy
Okay... only 2 images added but 3 images. I finally scanned the image for Sonic 2's 'Neo Green Hill' Zone Logo (which the book credits as Neo Green due to the writer not quite doing as good a job as he should have). Also for Sonic 2, ANOTHER Level Select which is AFTER the early Beta but before the final one.. just noticed that is wasn't the same today.. silly me ^_^<br />And then there is one for Sonic CD showing an early Title screen from back when it was called 'CD Sonic'. The title for which i put the joke Bluedude made to me about it sounding like 'Seedy Sonic' which wasn't a good name.. maybe a reason for the change? or maybe not.
Added one new screenshot to EduSoft Master System game.. not much huh? but whats intresting is this level it shows seams to be one of the only bits i have really found that PROVE the game was never completed. Most of the reason of the game seams fine but this bit goes proves it wasn't finished cause there is a bad sprite display duing frames of the animation.. anyway..<br /><br />There probbly won't be much in the way of updates this week.. On wednesday am going in to hospital for a minor op (real minor, just getting all four wisdom teeth pulled) and i have basicly been told that the rest of the day and the next, don't expect to be able to do too much.. oh well.. i'll try and do some updates before then ^_^
In the world to today, many animals are in dire need caused by human's. Poor Animals like Young Miles Prower are left without voices.<br />Please be kind, give a voice today!<br /><br />okay.. am getting fed up with this.. simple as that really ¬_¬
Add a removed bit for both Saturn and MegaDrive version of Sonic 3D. You will notice that often if the game is just a port, i don't put removed features because they weren't removed from that version but there is a bit of a long story to do with this feature which can't all go with the information on the removed but.. Settle down for a long intresting story..<br /><br />I found this screenshot claiming to be from Sonic Jam for the Game.com. First look at the screen says, sure, it's black and white so it is possible (Game.com images you will see will be either Black and white or green and black.. long story, doesn't need to be here). A second look will tell you this image is WAY to good for the Game.com. Some might think it's just normal Sonic 3D but there are too many things not quite right. The whole world is smaller (or the Sonic Sprite is bigger, but from what you can see of the HUD, i think the world is smaller). The level graphics seams more detailed in some ways, less detailed in others. In fact, one idea that cross my mind was the Saturn Convert. As you know, the Sega Saturn version of Sonic 3D was a quick port (done in three months i believe) but it did feature a completey new 3D Rendered Special Stage. Looking at this image and the lack of detail on the Pillars, but more detail on the ground, i wondered if it might be the case that tried to make use of the Saturn's graphics and re-render the whole game. an intresting option which isn't amazinly hard in some ways. It's hard to tell from the image but some bits of the Sonic look a little cleaner and a bit more blocky then the MegaDrive one, so it could be a 3D model. But it's probbly not. It's hard to tell.<br /><br />anyway, i must admit i did sit on this image for some time because i wanted to try and get down to the source of the image. The bad news was, my contact was a little too busy to be of much help in this matter and i don't have as many contacts as i would like so i couldn't get to the bottom of this. I have debated over time what this game really was. Was it a Beta of Sonic 3D? was it another version of Sonic 3D like the Saturn, or even a Possible Game.com version? all versions i can think of say no. A little while ago, i got hold of a copy of the E3 Demo for Sonic 3D and another prototype. The bad news is the E3 Demo is the oldest of the two and pretty close to the final game in many ways and this screen isn't part of it..<br /><br />that's basicly the end of the story.. Oh the screen is in the game information page by the way ^_^
