With the scent of turkey, pumpkin pie, and undesirable relatives left behind us, we eagerly look forward to the scent of Christmas trees and the sight of Christmas presents. Our early (late?) gift is an interview for one Shadowunleashed13, who in response to becoming Featured User said "I'm actually surprised, considering my general lack of activity as of late." Now on to the interview! Ho-ho-ho!

# 1. Q) Do you feel that even with Sonic Boom video games failing, the sub-franchise still has a chance?

A) Definitely. The video games were undoubtedly the greatest advancement for experimental torture we've seen in the past decade. Based on the critics' raving reviews, I would be shocked if Sega didn't follow up on this psychological success that has already broken thousands of hearts across North America. (In other words, not really)

# 2. Q) Speaking of Sonic Boom, what are your current thoughts on it as a whole (video games, cartoon, and comic)?

A) I'm not sure what to think of the games, but from watching gameplay, Rise of Lyric looks boring and Shattered Crystal seems like a decent platformer (and to clarify my answer to the previous question, I don't actually hate the games). I haven't read the comic yet but I'm expecting more Ian Flynn gold. As for the TV show, I love it much more than I thought I would. I'll definitely be keeping an close eye on the TV show, and a loose one on the comics.

# 3. Q) What are you most hoping for in the next main-series Sonic game?

A) I know I've said in the past that I actually enjoy it when Sega experiments with Sonic, but after Sonic Boom, I hope Sonic Team won't follow in BigRedButton's footsteps and stray too far. I just want a good high-speed platformer, which is really the main reason I play Sonic games. That and the oh-so-joyous surplus of bounce pads.

# 4. Q) If you could pick any fan-character you know of and put them in a canon Sonic game, what character would you pick and why?

A) To be honest, I have yet to see an OC that would fit in a Sonic game. Not to say that I haven't seen some really well-made fan characters.

# 5. Q) Regardless of pairings or shipping or any of that, what two Sonic characters do you think would be able to come together and provide the most functional household, and why?

A) Sonic and chili dogs. Assuming it counts. (Note from interviewer: it doesn't)

# 6. Q) What would you think of a Sonic manga?

A) I thought we'd had Sonic manga in the past. But to answer your question directly, I'm not really a fan of manga.

# 7. Q) How do you deal with it when you see people saying depressing or disparaging remarks about the Sonic franchise and its future?

A) I don't really have a problem when someone makes a comment like that. If they say it in an unnecessarily obscene or inappropriate way, then I might get a little peeved.

# 8. Q) What are your thoughts on fan-created content and its place on SNN?

A) Fan-created content can be fun if done right. I share the popular opinion that it stays away from mainspace, but I would encourage more fan content in blogs and userspace.

# 9. Q) Message Walls or Talkpages, which do you prefer?

A) I prefer the old talk pages because I'm used to them and the notifications for talk pages are separate from forums notifications, whereas with message walls it's harder to tell which notifications are forums and which are message walls.

# 10. Q) You have to live in a household with your favorite and least favorite Sonic characters. How do you see that going?

A) I can already imagine the quality time I'd spend fishing with Big, but I'd probably end up getting jailed for Christopher Thorndyke's brutal murder.

    Well, this is interesting news. So, we were told about a couple of months ago that a follow up to the hit Sonic & Mega Man: When Worlds Collide comic crossover (known as "Worlds Unite") would arrive in Spring of 2015. Nothing much was said about that other than the date and some promotional artwork.

    Not bad, considering its early Saturday morning time slot.

    As the weeks passed, TSSZ News tracked Sonic Boom ratings via TV By The Numbers. Thanks to them, what we've known so far is that the show has consistently ranked #1 in its time period among boys ages 6-11 and 9-14. Recently, however, TV By Th…
