    It's like... I'm legitimately surprised people actually like Sonic.

    what about the fact that mario for the nes is actually faster than sonic?

    Justin are you trying to keep the sonic hype alive for the next sonic game?
  • iamvishnu - May 3, 2014 7:14 a.m.

    Sonic has rest mass, therefore going faster than the speed of light would require infinite energy. So the blueshift theory is completely ridiculous, even for sonic lore.

    The Sonic The Hedgehog anime movie contains a couple of my favourite Sonic moments. Tails "accidentally" grabbing a (human) girl's breasts and Knuckles reprimanding him with "Tails! I never thought you'd stoop so low!", and my personal favourite Sonic line ever: "SHUT UP TAILS!" (http://youtu.be/-VOOPJ8qP5I?t=17s)

    You didn't mention the unique control method of segasonic the hedgehog, it was controlled using a trackball, which must have been absolutely madding to use I'm sure. Also, why is tails orange? Tails is orange because orange compliments blue, so tails is a fox, and is orange, only because sonic is blue! Mind blown.

    Haha, I remember that arcade game. But it wasn't the Sonic game I knew. It was worse than the future isometric games in the series. The music ties are crazy too, especially that track from Jetzons.

    You guys forgot to mention it was the first game to utilize Blast Processing.

    A vat of toxic waste... dumped into a nearby pond... nearby a hedge... which was itself nearby a burger joint... Who would eat at a place THAT close to a chemical dumping ground? Plot twist: the burger joint was responsible for the "toxic waste" being dumped because it was grease that had gone several years past its expiration date. "Several years" as in "it was older than the grown hedgehog it accidentally murdered."

    That origin story is the dumbest fucking shit i've ever read. Seriously sounds like an 8 year old coming up with Sonic's origin on the spot by looking around his environment.

    Another fact: Every sonic article is written by justin.

    No late fact submissions!

    This comment made me laugh - MASSIVE thanks for the Sega Saturdays reference!

    I've been liking the show, so thank you guys. On a more sonic related note, I beat CD recently, and found a new appreciation for a series that I've played and liked since I was a kid, but never loved. You see I never understood why mechanically sonic was fast and the levels were like 'fuck you', but it was more about the idea of speed.
  • DarthPunk - May 2, 2014 10:42 a.m.

    Christ I can actually remember playing that Sonic arcade game but yeah you're right from what I can remember of it it wasn't that good

    "There is a Sonic game that doesn't have Sonic in it" What about Shadow The Hedgehog? Or Tails' Skypatrol and Tails Adventure on the Game Gear? You mentioned the Ice Cap Zone song, but did you know the finale music from Sonic 2 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5n4V9q7n8JQ) is actually a Japanese song called 'Sweet Sweet Sweet (Dreams Come True)' by Masato Nakamura? Listen to it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qwtaS4YQwqI
  • Trollkitten - May 2, 2014 5:22 p.m.

    Shadow the Hedgehog doesn't have Sonic playable, but Sonic is still a prominent character in it. He doesn't appear in the Tails games, though, to the best of my knowledge.

    Cartman's grandma lives in Nebraska.

    and Ike is Canadian. Just have to look at his head to know where he's from, GR.
