Ten years ago the 15th anniversary of Sonic the Hedgehog left us with a pretty sour taste. But did you know that there was one game that came out to celebrate the heritage with a racing game boasting an extreme attitude, extreme air and some extreme gear. Tune in 7PM Centra/1AM GMT for the livestream of Sonic Riders as the Retro crew and Unleashed Project’s own S0LV0 tour through the game in extreme style!
You may have heard of a little show called Mystery Science Theater 3000 that had a man and his robots cracking jokes while cheesy, almost unhealthy to watch movies played in front of them. Fast forward to the present, and Mike, Kevin, and Bill, who starred in Mystery Science Theater 3000, have their own production now, Rifftrax, although it’s a little more internet-centric. Joystiq thought it would be amazing to get these guys to “riff” some video game cutscenes, and well… they were so right. If you want to skip to the Sonic ’06 scene, go to 1:11.
