Welcome to Sonic Vegemite!


a site update at Sat 27-Aug-16 14:27:26
I have had it mentioned to me that
a) people are, in fact still reading this, and
b) that some of said people would like to have a certain section of the site restores to its... well, if not the primacy and/or glory it once held on these not-actually-hallowed-at-all pages, then at least restored.

I speak of course of the magic "H" word, "Hoaxes". The hoaxes from the self-submitting Web 2.0 reboot of Sonic Vegemite are of course still available here, but we're speaking of the old, dusty archives here.

I'm going to be honest. I was very picky during that time, and yet, not picky enough. A great deal of the submissions I inexplicably decided to place on the page at the time were, looking back on them, awful. Like, really, really bad.

So maybe I could put up some, even the bad ones, if only as a file depository. Maybe I could comment on some again, even. I am doing, somewhere in the depths of my free time, a site redesign, and maybe there could be some inclusion there.

I think two things really ended hoaxing: 1) 3D games and the requisite step up in effort and talent required to convincingly Photoshop in 3D rather than sprite editing, and 2) modding. It's really not that impressive to have a hoax saying "oh look, here is Amy in Sonic 2" when the response will be "yeah great, here is a ROM hack where you can actually do that". I guess anyone who wishes to hoax, really, could start up again on Sonic Mania (and that, in itself, is worth discussion) and just hope that they inspire the inevitable mods rather than imitate them.

If nothing else they would make good Twitter images.

Which gives me an idea...

Yeah, I know, that's the 30-year title, not the 25-year title. Still. I think it's appropriate this time out.

Look at what we're getting. We are getting Taxman and Stealth doing the official fangame that Sonic 4 should have been. We are getting a new game by the Colours and Generations devs, who we know can put together awesome 3D Sonic games, which is a no-really-we-swear-this-is-not-Generations 2, with both Modern and Classic Sonic. We are getting people who are good at Sonic making games that look good. We are not getting "let's start all over again with a new engine and take three games to work out what does or does not work". I hope. Please don't start Project Sonic over again with a brand new playstyle, SOnic Team, Generations was fine.

If you are still bitching about what you want in a Sonic title at this point then I literally do not know how to help you anymore. Unless, of course, you are upset that we're not getting more of the edginess of the Shadow the Hedgehog era, in which case.... get out. No really, just get out. Don't drag us back there. Don't do it.

Now, as I said on the SV Discord, the critical thing is that they find the guy who keeps saying "what game are all the cool kids playing, let's steal a mechanic from that", and beat him with rusty blunt implements. About the head and neck. Repeatedly. Because if there is another STEALTH SEGMENT in my SONIC GAME I swear I am going to throw things.
