Here is the song that goes with these lyrics!
Things got a little hectic this week as I prepped for a local con this weekend! So to cut myself some slack, I have briefly paused Bats On, Bats Off for this exciting alternative programming.
I originally drew this comic for a Sonic fanzine a few years ago called Speedhog. Because as we all know, there is no medium better suited to music parodies than comics! Er... well, maybe not, but I still had fun with it. For those of you who are not versed in Sonic history:
-The little bossy guy at the start of the comic is Omachao! He is a robot who delivers annoying tutorial dialogue in Sonic Adventures 2, ala Navi in Ocarina of Time
-Sonic and Knuckles had a special cartridge that could "lock-on" to other game cartridges via a port in the top of the cart to unlock various bonus features. Sexy!
-I'm sorry to report that Sonic never actually gets to use a knife in a Sonic game. But don't worry... Shadow does!
-Sonic R was the only new Sonic game made for the Sega Saturn, Sega's N64/PS1 competitor. It was Sonic's 3D console gaming debut... but it was just a racing game (with only five tracks!). It was a pretty big letdown for anyone waiting for Sonic's "Mario 64" moment. It is mainly remembered for its insane music.
Of course, as a lifelong Sonic fan, I am actually the last person who would tell you Sonic died in 1997, and will hapily lecture you on which specific post '97 games I think are underated at any time.
Anyhow, enough hedgehogs. See you on Monday, team!
