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?

Who doesn’t love a good joke? I sure do and that’s exactly why I stay away from Smash Bros. leaks which are usually made up of text in 4chan. But some of the more fun leaks or hoaxes are the ones where people actually put effort into them to make them seem real like the […]
