Ever wanted a site to find out UK gaming events, well HelenBaby has set up a site with the idea of compiling a comprehensive list of UK gaming events, and it seems to have quiet a bit there. It’s worth a look, find it here.
The tablet I draw on is encountering errors on the laptop when I plug it in. So its either my tablet or my laptop; both are too expensive for me to replace with the fact that my finances are in the toilet. Don’t worry about me folks, I’m not starving and my ‘house’ has wheels.
I am working on TWO Projects with Jerry. One includes the entire EC Staff in the Comic Arch I am calling “Basements and Critters,” a Dungeon and Dragons SLASH Warhammer Fantasy Parody wherein the very talented writer TheRandomGenius has inspired the arch with his awesome fanfiction wherein Vger and Urth find themselves in Yu-Gi-Oh’s Universe.
The other is a Fan Fiction Story called MARS4. A Fanfiction because it is set in Sonic’s World; right after the ‘Civil War’ and the Kingdom of Acorn became a Republic…but has absolutely NOTHING to do with Sonic the Hedgehog; or any of the Franchise Characters.
Well SAGE has been and gone for this year… wait what the heck is SAGE? SAGE for the for those that don’t know is the Sonic Amateur Gaming Expo where fans show off there fan game creations (or a book keeping software, don’t ask how I know that). Most of the time these expos can consist of some truly innovative and entertaining ideas for games to some awful pieces of s**t that should never see the light of day, ( I’m afraid the latter is true more than the former). Anyway I’m getting side tracked (that may be Port related) SEGA Driven esteemed collogue in the Sonic community and affiliate of Emerald Coast has put together a video showing off some of the best of this years SAGE so watch it… NOW!
Well it’s the last community spotlight for Season 1 from Titanscreed, and once again it’s a chat with some of the people that work behind the scenes at SoS this time we take a look at what the future may hold.
Well that rounds that up, hope to see lot’s of people at Summer of Sonic very soon!
Well Summer of Sonic is just coming up this Saturday, and of course once again EC will be representing, although some of us may be jet lagged. Now to wet your appetites Titanscreed has done a community spotlight with some of the staff to discuss the some of the history and there most memorable moments.
Okay I’m a little behind schedule on this for which I apologise, but my mind has been elsewhere.
This weeks community spotlight is none other than John Finely the ‘loveable’ Scottish fan who has run Turbo Drive live for god knows how long now… lets just say since time began. So have a listen below.
Hey guys, just thought I’d let you guys know that I was recently asked some questions by Helenbaby of Plus XP, a fairly new gaming review/news website, you can find the interview here, it’s worth a read, if only to see a silly picture of my face.
As many of you aware, The Sonic Stadium recently finished a massive community project in the form of a music album, which they used to close out the SSR feed before it went down for maintenance.
Thanks to the lovely Dreadknux and TSS staff, I have had a copy of the album for perusal and I thought I’d do a personal review of the album for EC.
The album itself boasts 45 tracks of which some are original as well as remixes of songs throughout the “generations” as it were of Sonic’s history. We’re talking about games that span throughout the “Classic” era on the Mega Drive/Genesis to the “Dreamcast” era to the “Modern” era, as well as take useage from some handheld titles and throwing a bit of a Generation-esque spin on some titles, like the track below from FreenInGreen:
For an album that comprises over 4 discs worth of music, it’s a spectacular piece of work, and an amazing piece of community interaction.
That’s not to say it’s all gold though. While it is ALOT of music provided by the community, there are some low points within the album, things that just don’t seem right. But I think it’s fair to say that the good on the album far outweighs the bad, and don’t get me wrong, there is ALOT of good on this 4 discs worth of awesome. Like the track below from Plumegeist:
For the nostalgia fan in you, it’s really good to listen to the album without the song titles showing and then realising what certain tracks are from which games. You get that warm feeling when you hear that familiar tune without watching the title for the track.
