Just put your mouse cursor on the menu bar above to see the sub-menu of all the pages in that categorie has. Or check below for the site news and updates!
Not quite sure which category to put this in but it's kinda a question to your guys. Back in the old days, There was a Game released for the MegaDrive or/and Genesis (there is a point to me saying that) caleld 'Art Alive' which was another of this paste and paint games that seamed to be all on consoles in the early 90s, even though most of them were pointless because no save, no print or anything (though the spectum, GameBoy and a couple of others did get a printer at different stages). Now. If you check the information for it on this site, you will see a Release date of 1st January 1991, which would make it the FIRST Game ever to feature Sonic, predating Sonic 1 by half a year. This isn't unlikey since it would be done to drum up fans for the upcoming Sonic.<br /><br />The problem comes in two bits. First, i have some conflicting release dates. Some just say it was out in the US in 1991, some say January 1991, some say 1st January 1991. This aren't really conflicting too much. Some Say it was out in the UK in 1992, others say It was NEVER released in the UK. Some say it was out in Japan 27nd of March 1992, some say Never out in japan.. Pretty conflicting there.. Now.. I was looking at the US release date and thinking.. since when do they release Computer games on the 1st of January. I have found out that the US doesn't have the same rules on New Years day and shops are still open but it does still sound a little odd to me. So i am wondering if anyone have any proven information on the release date for this ... game..
Updated the Cover for Archie's Sonic Archives Volume 7. Anything else to say? nope... So... .. I think Sonic Select Volume 1 should reprint the Archie Specials 'In your Face', 'Sonic and Knuckles', 'Triple Trouble' and 'Sonic Live'. I got this one on order (some reason, i couldn't find this one for a while) Volume 2 should be out soon and i really hope i decide to reprint the Sonic Mini-Series as well (and then there is the Knuckles Series) but am not sure what is going on. I'll put up information when it turns up.. i gotta Order Archives Volume 7 and 8 soon too..
I updated the Screenshots for Sonic R (both Saturn and PC versions) so that are done now. On another note, i have another Sonic Guide book coming soon (within the week is the esimate) but i think it's from the US (since it is a US book) so it might be a bit longer -_-. Either way it is the Sonic 3 Guide book by Brandy games so i'll be able to add the information onto the Site in the book section AND since they also did the Sonic and Knuckles one, i am expecting alot more codes ^_^
I have done and added the Review of the Sonic 3D Guide book. Lucky i got a bit of time to do this cause at the moment, am working on a couple of TSW related matters that need a bit of attendion and no, you probbly won't really find out or see anything about this for a while, some bits are behind the scenes stuff ^_^
Added 4 Sonic 1 Sprites. 3 Badniks and Robotnik. I really need to work more on the sprites but then there are so small, should i bother with saying the update that much when you can just check it out yourself. oh well..<br />On another note, we seam to be getting more hits of late.. great but confusing.. Oh well..
Sorry.. Since the last post something has come to my attention. The Game Genie was not for the Myster System which comfirmed that bit of information but the main bit i want to say is the Game Genie only did the Consoles around one time. These Being MegaDrive, Game Gear, Game Boy, Snes and Nes. The Action Reply is still going and you can get it for pretty much all current console. I always found the Action Reply to be less supported and stuff but it seams that was NOT the case. The GameShark is still going but it was a late one and only works for the Saturn in the 'Classic' Sega run. These days it is basicly a save/back up device more then cheat, and the Code Breaker is still going but i can't say much about that one since it was first around 1999-2000 so well after the Classic age.<br /><br />We may talk about the game Shark later because of the Sonic Saturn games but not the Code Breaker, and a big YES to talking about the Game Genie and Action Reply. I would also like to note that Sega was the only company that really agreed to these Cheat Devices but still tried some blocking code in there games. Nintendo Sued Game Genie in fact..
Added the Lyrics for WonderMan mk2 by Right Said Fred (see Related). The one Sonic book i got coming is late and i have another couple on order which should help me with some more Game Genie codes and some other things So i hope to get them up soon. Also, am not quite sure on the Action Reply codes.. There should be some Sonic ones but am not sure if i should put them in there own section like the game genie or what.. <br /><br />If you don't know, basicly the action Reply was like a Game Genie but it didn't do so well and seamed to have alot less codes for it.
Basicly, i have just uploaded 68 Game Genie Codes.. boy that was a pain to type them all in. In a way, it is almost twice that because 68 of them are for Sonic and Knuckles, and 58 of them ALSO work for Sonic 3 And Knuckles. Well.. at the moment, my game Information doesn't treat Knuckles in Sonic 2 or Sonic 3 And Knuckles as different games which is fine so that just means the codes appear in both SnK Sections and S3 (with a note that you need SnK Lock-on). That's no problem, same with Sonic 2 Codes. Well.. Enjoy ^_^ I have been looking around for a MegaDrive, Game Gear or (if they made one) Master System Game Genies and some of the Action Reply Codes. If you don't know, Action Reply was like Game Genie but not as popular and Yes, There was a Game Genie for Both MegaDrive AND Game Gear.. Am just not sure about the Master System but i think there was one.<br /><br />Oh and it has been bought to my attendion that people do not understand the terms 'Furry', 'Funny Animal' and such like so i might have to do up an article explaining uses, history etc. So.. Look forward to that maybe.. it does have alot of relation to the Sonic Universe and TSW too. Also note that the Term Funny Animal doesn't mean Funny stories.. things have changed since the 30s.. in fact, they have returned to how they were long before that..
