MegaMan, Final Fantasy, Sonic and Metal Gear Solid RIFFED (From Joystiq and Rifftrax)

E3 CAN WAIT!

If you’re like me, you grew up in the 90’s.

If you’re, also, like me, you were a huge nerd.

Finally, if you were a huge nerd and were like me, you may remember a little television show that started off on Comedy Central and then made the move to the Sci-Fi Network (NOT SYFY!) called Mystery Science Theater 3000. Well when their last show aired (Danger: Diabolik), a part of my childhood died. In fact, I though that I wasn’t going to hear the voices of Mike Nelson, Bill Corbett (Crow) and Kevin Murphy (Servo) ever again. Heartbroken.

However due to the power of the internet, a few years ago I stumbled on Rifftrax. Sanity has been restored! Light at the end of the tunnel! Not only did they did horrible movies (Maniac, Birdemic, etc.) like they did during the MST3k days, but they also did blockbuster movies (Twilight, Harry Potter, Star Wars, Captain America, Ironman, etc.).

Why am I talking about this? This is a game site! You want game news, game features, game awesomeness! Well, I’m about to blow your mind!

Joystiq, thank you for this awesome combination. I hope there’s more where this came from.

What were some weird moments in gaming for you? Leave it in the comments down below. We’ll get back to the E3 coverage soon, so don’t worry your sweet little head about it.

Game 92: Sonic the Hedgehog

Sonic The Hedgehog
Sega
1991

In the ’90s there were 2 main consoles much like today, just different companies. They were constantly fighting for control of the market and until 1991 one of them had dominated the home gaming market. Nintendo had been on top since 1985. With the original nes and introduction of Mario they owned it all.

In 1991 Sega decided to take a page from Nintendo’s book. They wanted to create a character that would not only star in games but could be the face of the company. Sonic was their hedgehog.

So Sonic is a hedgehog(blue in case you didnt catch that). Who lives on South island with all his animal friends. When he encounters Dr. Robotnik and discover his evil intentions to collect the Chaos Emeralds and take over the world. The Doc hopes to accomplish this by turning animals into robots to do his bidding. Sonic has different plans though and sets out across the the worlds different zones to stop this from happening.

Sonic goes through 6 levels split up into 3 acts avoiding obstacles and “badniks” freeing animals and defeating the Doc at the end of each level. using his speed and the spin move sonic can jump spikes and pits and defeat the robots therefore freeing the robot. The goal? get the 6 Chaos Emeralds so that Dr. Robotnik cannot.

One of the interesting facts of this game is that the  Emeralds are not rewards for beating Dr. Robotnik at the end of the level. In fact in order to accomplish and see the “Good Ending” of the game. In order to get the emeralds, you must collect golden rings which serve dual purposes in the game. Carrying at least one ring will stop you from losing a life if you are hit by a robot. However 100 rings give you an extra life, but if you finish act 1 or 2 of any level with at least 50 rings you can go to the Special stage.

The special stage is a 360 rotating maze that allows Sonic to collect rings and locate the emeralds. Hitting a goal block however will end this chance. These are also the only place in the game to collect continues to use in case you lose all your lives.

Beat Dr. Robotnik and save your animal friends!

Chachi Says: As a nintendo fan i didnt fall for the sonic ploy at first. Nor did my father allow me too, always making sure nintendo was in our house. However the game is good. Fun to play and has a high replay value.
