The Story so Far…

Posted in Skyblaze on February 16th, 2012 by Skyblaze

Welcome to the first of my articles where I discuss my crazy theories regarding certain convoluted storylines and attempt to make sense of things.

I’m kicking things off today by talking about the least popular of Sonic the Hedgehog’s outings – Sonic 2006

First, some backstory. Sonic 06 was released supposedly to commemorate Sonic’s fifteenth anniversary. It was supposed to be his first HD outing. Unfortunately, it was rushed out for Christmas release. The end result was a game that was reasonably pretty to look at, but also confusing, poorly paced and glitchy to the point of being nigh-unplayable – the music is awesome, though :).
Examples of the legendarily poor gameplay can be found all over the net, including an infamous Let’s Play by PokeCap’n and friends. But I’m here to talk about the story.

Part of the problem is that the story is told from three different perspectives. The gameplay first allows you to play as Sonic, then opens up Shadow’s storyline, and then Silver’s. When you have completed all three, the ‘Last Story’ opens up, allowing access to the ending. Thing is, unlike in Sonic Adventure, none of the storylines make sense in isolation. Each of the three main characters only offer a part of the story – there are various events in Sonic’s storyline that only make a whit of sense if you’ve played the other two. In fact, as far as I can tell, the most logical order for the gameplay to have actually gone in would have been Shadow -> Silver -> Sonic. But of course, Sonic’s name is on the front of the box, so we can’t have that *rollseyes*. Read more »

My second Music video. This time for JewWario, Star of ‘You Can Play This’ on That Guy With The Glasses.

This is my Christmas gift to him. I hope he likes it.

I might well do an extended edit using the longer version of the song in the New Year. 😉
