Monday Links: Retrospective Edition

Oh, hey, I’m not working all day Monday and there’s actual news. Monday links? Monday links.

Sonic Retro News

  • Pictured at right is the Retro UK crew with Iizuka. “Ah, Sonic Retro,” he said. See, when I got to meet him at Sonic Boom, he looked like a man who had no idea what he was doing. Oh, wait.
  • In case you missed it: SEGA wasn’t smart again and left a lot of assets in the Generations demo (in easy reach to boot). Here’s what Retro members uncovered. Massive spoilers ahead. Ah, Sonic Retro! [Morning Hacking Round-Up]
  • In the forums, we are discussing the technical oddities and strange design choices found in the Generations demo. It’s great thread that takes an interesting look at what Generations is thus far. [Generations Technical Oddities Thread]
  • Get all your Sonic Generations resources right here! [Generations Resources Thread]
  • It’s Sonic’s 20th anniversary, so take the 30-day hacking challenge! [30-Day Challenge Thread]

Sonic/SEGA News

  • It is the “retrospective” edition of the links, so let’s get the ball rolling. Nintendo Life shares their memories. [Nintendo Life]
  • PCWorld, you’re next. [PCWorld]
  • PopWatch debates whether Sonic is cool due to nostalgia or if he’s legitimately still cool. I think the legit coolness died with the mountain of handkerchiefs. [Entertainment Weekly]
  • Annual Sonic funeral news post from a newspaper outlet. [Sydney Morning Herald]
  • Tributes from the mainstream media are always lame, therefore funny. [CBS]
  • A “by the numbers” look at the 20th anniversary. [The Guardian]
  • Big surprise: SEGA has high hopes for Generations. [Nexus404]
  • Barry the Nomad over-thinks Sonic for his 20th. [SEGAbits]
  • AAUK’s wrap-up of Summer of Sonic 2011 is something you shouldn’t not read. [Sonic Wrecks]

    Maybe were in luck and Sega left mostly fake info about the bosses and levels.

    This post should have just been the video.

    You get recognition from him, you pose with him, and then you mock him directly afterward? Not that he doesn’t deserve it, but it’s still a hypocritical and dickish move.

      I’m pretty sure he won’t be losing any sleep over our ribs on him.

      It’s not like I respected him before I met him or anything. Dude’s a hack.

    Awesome to see this photo! I was the guy in the blue and white that spent a while chilling with the Retro crew. Glad to see Iizuka knows of the (in)famous Sonic Retro! 🙂

    That photo… Iizuka is much more cooler than the entire crew!!!(just kidding, but I never expected that he is just so stilish like that! Real talk…)

    I spent some time reading the links about Sonic 20 aniversary (and here goes 20 minutes of my life wasted with nonsense comentaries in the Sydney morning herald), in this particular case, people who don’t like Sonic commented about him, basically troll comments, I think if someone don’t like something or even isn’t familiarized with it(givin us the right to make critics), why waste their times comment?
    Now in the case of SegaBits, that’s was definitely a smart article, lead to a good laugh!

    “Ah, Sonic Retro!” should be the website’s slogan. >_>
