SatAM was obviously a huge inspiration for the Archie comics. But that show wasn’t the only inspiration for the comics. There was another Sonic cartoon that was involved which is called the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog. “How was this show involved?” you ask? Let’s take a look at issue two of the Archie […]
Ah, Antoine D’Coolette. One of the main characters in the SatAM cartoon. He used to be one of my least favorite characters in the show (probably still is). When I was little, he always seemed like such a coward and arrogant (and not in a cool way like Sonic). This leads to episode eight of […]
Introduction: The Sonic community is one of the most diverse video game communities in existence. This is because Sonic has taken many forms and introduced many types of fans. Some were introduced thanks to the Genesis games, some because of Shadow the Hedgehog, and some even by more infamous games like Sonic ‘06. But […]
Sonic the Hedgehog is famous for his speed but he also has quite the ego. This ego can easily be taken advantage of by villains such as Dr. Robotnik. This is demonstrated in episode seven of SatAM: “Sonic Racer” which debuted on October 23, 1993 and was written by Len Janson. The episode begins with Bunnie […]
Introduction: When you hear “Sonic Fighting Game,” what first comes to your mind? Do you think Sonic the Fighters? Maybe Sonic Smackdown? Or perhaps Sonic Forces: Speed Battle? When I hear it, I think of Sonic Battle for the Gameboy Advance (GBA). The game was released on Jan. 5, 2004, and received mixed reviews thanks […]
The Forbidden Zone is a dangerous part of Robotropolis that is home to the evil wizard Lazar who has been sleeping there for hundreds of years. Thanks to the Guardian, no one has dared traverse that part of Robotropolis… Until now. We will now explore this mysterious land in episode six of SatAM: Super Sonic. […]
Introduction: Boring. If there is one word I had to describe Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric, it would be “boring.” How did this game become so dull despite the announcement trailer looking so cool? Well, it all began on May 17, 2013, when Sega made a deal with Nintendo to have three of their Sonic […]
The world of Mobius is home to many mysteries. Some of these mysteries are known as the Seven Wonders of Mobius. These “wonders” are hidden around Mobius and their locations are told only in the secret scrolls of Maga. Let’s observe the scrolls’ first appearance in episode five of SatAM, Sonic and the Secret Rin- whoops, wrong Sonic. “Sonic and the Secret Scrolls” which aired on Oct. 9, 1993, and was written by Janis Diamond.
The Archie comics and SatAM introduced many new characters like Rotor, Sally, Bunnie, etc. But one character I want to focus on is one who also showed up in Sonic Underground, Sonic’s Uncle Chuck. He was mentioned in the very first episode of SatAM as someone who Sonic held dearly but was roboticized along with his dog Muttski. We see more of Sonic’s dearly loved uncle in the next episode of SatAM that we are going to discuss, “Ultra Sonic” written by David Villaire. The episode was aired on Oct. 2, 1993.
When Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) was being developed, the people at Sonic Team were planning to have a port of the game for the Nintendo Revolution (aka the Wii). But due to not having enough time to achieve that, they instead decided to split the development team so one could work on an entirely new game for the console. At E3 2006, Sonic Wild Fire was announced. Later in August, however, the name was changed to Sonic and the Secret Rings and was released for the Nintendo Wii on Feb. 20, 2007. Upon its release, critics were mixed thanks to the game’s controls. So, is the game a wish come true? Or a dead RINGer?
