Monday Links: Return of the Links Edition

A busy work schedule and lack of news anywhere killed the links for two weeks.  While the former is still kicking my ass, the latter… well, you saw that trailer, right?  I believe that’s news.  Even if it’s late on a Monday!

  • If you go into our forums to post about Sonic Generations, please please please for the love of Rotor the big gay walrus will you please read the thread rules.  If you break them, you will be suspended for a week.  No exceptions.  Over a dozen people couldn’t read last week and got axed. [Sonic Generations Megathread]
  • People got too excited and stupid in the thread, so we decided to send a couple funny messages to curtail people’s insane posting.  Things exploded and a sexy chimney sweep stopped on by. [Page 16 OH MY GAW-AW-AW-AWDboooom] [My Favorite Things]

    I checked out Page 16. I haven’t been scared like that since I looked up the Tails Doll. And it was well near 9PM when it happened, so it screwed up my sleeping. It’s things like these that keep me interested in this site.

    I wonder what SEGA is going to do with 2 styled Sonics from different generations.
