Monday Links: Show Stopping, Jaw Dropping Edition

I’m going to make a prediction and guess that you are still playing the Sonic Fan Remix demo.  Can’t blame ya… it is pretty tight.

  • Sonic Fan Remix is kicking all kinds of ass.  A Google search yields a ton of praise from a variety of blogs and mainstream media outlets.  Nice work, guys.  You deserve it.  [Google Search: “Sonic Fan Remix”]

Sonic/SEGA News

  • Play a good Sonic game.  Play Sonic Colors.  The latest trailer showcases the Blue Wisp.  [SEGA Blogs]
  • There was a Sonic cosplay couple at New York Comic Con.  [SEGA Flickr]
  • SEGA thinks that they have made too many Sonic games and will be focusing on quality over quantity.  That’s why there are three Sonic games coming to retail this season.  Make sense?  [CVG]

Monday Video

This is one of my favorite songs.  It has terrible lyrics, R. Kelly yodeling and a poorly produced video.  How did this happen?

    It took me a minute to realize that Colors is actually two games: Colors and Colors Rush Edition.

      I will never acknowledge Colors DS as anything other than Rush 3.

    What the…? Sonic Fan Remix is ALREADY causing traffic? It runs way too slow (or at least on my computer).

      You’ve misunderstood. What I meant was that all of the people coming to Retro to download the game and/or post in the project’s thread overloaded our servers.

        Oh, oops, sorry. Anyway, Sonic Colors pretty is the only thing on my mind right now. My comic (Sonic the Comic at deviantart) is pretty much covering Sonic Colors garenteed.
