Spoilers. Spoilers. Oh so great.
Spanish or not, it's too late.
Game surprises wasted.
Avoid Youtube at all cost,
Otherwise the wait is lost.
Just a little poem there, to show how displeased I am at this news.
You heard me. Sonic Lost World has had its street date broken. Spanish retailers [or at least one] have broken the official release date for Sonic Lost World, and spoilers have already been posted onto YouTube.
Could this be in the gaming section? It could indeed. It talks about the latest game announced - in fact, two games - in the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. But I also made strict claims that this Sonic the Hedgehog story I've been hiding behind would be announced when the game was, and rather than have two separate blogs in two different sections, I've just condensed them into one.
And so I said I would. My idea of Sonic Adventure 3. Why am I uploading this so early after the previous blog post then?
Well, a recent bout of the rumour mill has been going, and basically the game 'Sonic Excursion' seems to have been taken as fact by almost everywhere. I won't bother going into it, as I'm sure that many of you will have seen it somewhere.
But onto my idea, which is more fleshed out than that rumour. I had planned this to feature Chao Gardens more in the story rather than how the other Adventure games dealt with them, which I described as "Oh look! A Chao Garden. Let's visit". This way, they can still remain optional, but it doesn't look as though they've been added in for the sake of it. Chao have been part of the story in two Sonic games - Adventure 1 and Rivals 2. This then would be the third, and as you read on, you'll see why.
Now then, those on my personal Facebook feed will have seen these, but since they are to do with one of those Unannounced stories on the Pilot section, I'd thought I'd bring them all together and talk through what is happening.
As you may remember, a story started by guest writer LuckyBachi called "Sonic: The Hog Behind the Hero", which was stopped after four chapters. This was due to another story starting on her DeviantArt account. Called "Perfect Chaos II", it has a lot more of a reputation due to its complex story arcs. During the year of 2012, the same year Perfect Chaos II started, rumours were around of a Sonic game that would finally be Sonic Adventure 3. At the beginning of 2013, those rumours grew stronger. In fact, the biggest cherry on the cake was in February, when a whole host of information was announced about the new Sonic game. Well, announced as in more rumours.
Admit it. Playing Sonic the Hedgehog games competitively against others is fun. Both Adventure games, Heroes, and the 3DS version of Generations all feature local multiplayer, and in the case of the 3DS, online play.
I have been avid to booting up Adventure 2 and Heroes when mates are round, and all enjoy it. But modern Sonic games seem to have just become single player affairs.
So today, I finally earned the Platinum Trophy of Sonic Generations. From the reading I had done, it seemed I wouldn't be able to do it, due to the 'glitched' trophy.
This, however, is nonsense. The trophy is not glitched at all. Instead, it is the servers of the Sonic Generations leaderboards playing up.
