Ok this has been a question, I'm curious how the fans here all view Nintendo? I know that Sonic was created for the sole purpose of competing with Nintendo back in the day. Sonic Games are what sold the Genesis so that it could compete against the SNES. The entry of Sony & Microsoft to the Console Wars combined with the flop of the Sega Saturn in the States, it's understandable why Sega left the console market right?
The Partnership of Sega & Nintendo resulted in Sonic Adventure 2 Battle being a best seller on the Gamecube. Games were produced like Mega Collection & Gems Collection to increase Sonic's fanbase & give the new fans means to enjoy Sonic's past. Tons of good came out of Sega partnering with Nintendo right? There's some belief th…Read more >
Ok these days we know that both Sega & Sonic Team have made tons of mistakes over the years. We're all aware of how mistakes related to the Saturn's western release led to Sega ultimately dropping out of the console wars. History ended up repeating Saturn with WiiU, both systems were released too soon & were overshadowed by their predecessors. Fortunately plenty of good came from Sega releasing it's games onto other systems rather than competing with them.
Now for the mistakes that would harm the Sonic Series itself, the mistakes Sonic Team made that had a lasting effect on the series. Sonic 06 being rushed to be a launch title & having half of Sonic Team work on another game instead. Then if that wasn't bad enough, they blamed the Adventur…Read more >
Ok we all know Sonic X has been over for more than a decade, although it did explain the Sonic Adventure games taking place on Earth which was good. There were however problems that originated in the Japanese version, which led to the series not being able to be as good as it could have been, this blog hopes to address them. We are all aware that the series had been Americanized from the start which may have led to it not being popular enough in Japan. Season 2 made the mistake of rushing the series to a conclusion.
By Americanization you can tell rather easily that most of the setting takes place in the United States just by looking at the humans in the series. Japanese kids could tell just from the scenes where Chris is at school, that it…Read more >
Ok there are a lot of Vocal Songs in the Sonic Series, we really need to get someone to count just how many there are now! This was originally going to be a top 25, then I decided to make it a top 30 because of how many songs the Sonic Series has that are good, then thought may as well make it a top 40 in honor of Crush 40.
Honorable Mentions include "Sonic Underground Theme", "Found My Home" Sonic Underground, "Lazy Days Livin In Paradise", "Space Trip Steps", "A Ghost Pumpkin's Soup", "Super Sonic Racing", "Diamond In The Sky", "Fighting Onward", "I AM All of Me", & "Moonlight Battlefield"

I'm hoping that after Mania, Whitehead's Team creates their own 2nd Trilogy of games which could lead into an alternate Dreamcast Era by 2023. Maybe this timeline could have Eggman awaken Shadow before his plan relating to Chaos, as well as other huge differences? Perhaps Cream will play a role against Chaos? Such as having Chaos not attack her for an emerald because she reminds him of Tikal with her close friendship with Cheese. Maybe Emerl could survive in this timeline & have some role in the struggle against the Black Arms?
Do you guys have any hopes for the Classic Timeline?Read more >
