An early show this week as we are just two days away from the release of Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed! With that in mind, I talked to Brand Manager Aaron Webber with some final questions on the game that I didn’t get to ask Steve Lycett. I also talk with him about Super Monkey Ball: Banana Splitz on the Vita and the upcoming Anarchy Reigns. We have a shorter show this week due to everyone’s schedule, but Alex, GX and I still get in some chat about Paper Mario Sticker Star, The sonic Super Digest book and veer off topic on Felix the Cat and Heathcliff for some crazy reason (Which drives GX nuts).
These past two weeks, I’ve hardly played a thing on disc as so many great games have been making it to the download scene. Now, Sonic’s got a few downloadable games out or coming out himself. This week, we’ll be talking to Community Manager Kellie Parker and Brand Manager Mia Patrino on Sonic Adventure 2 HD. Meanwhile, me, Nux and GX will be discussing the just released Sonic Jump along with exciting news over the new features in the upcoming Sonic The Fighters. As always we’ll have discussions on Sonic news, the recent comics. Plus Sonic music interludes and more! Youtube link will be available later.
We’re not waiting for you “rush to the interview” people to cut through our podcast this time. We’re starting with it first!
This week, we got none other than Sumo Digital’s executive producer, Steve Lycett along with design director, Gareth Wilson! We’ll be chatting with him on all things Sonic and All Stars Racing and giving you some juicy, new details. Also, we have a die-hard Sega (and Sakura Wars) fan as a guest. You may remember seeing him cosplaying as Joe Musashi at Sonic Boom, Patrick Gardner. We’ll also be talking about the latest news of course, Sonic #240 and Sonic Unleashed as the main game topic along with a few musical breaks. Check out the show notes in the comments section.
The internet is a very confusing thing to me sometimes. It carries a ton of data at insane speeds over phone lines and even wireless. The same kind of phone lines that we’ve been using for decades to have conversations. SO WHY CAN’T WE HAVE A PROGRAM THAT ALLOWS US TO HAVE CONVERSATIONS THAT DON’T DROP OFF?!! It’s really insane. It was so bad, I gave up a few times and this episode was originally in six pieces until I wrangled everything together. If you didn’t care for Episode 10′s 3-Hour podcast, you’ll be happy to know that this one comes in just barely over an hour.
Also, sorry for the poor audio quality of the intro. I was trying to do something funny and failed. (Also, I need to keep my fan away from the mic.) Read on for this week’s topics.
Welcome to another exciting episode of the Swingin’ Report Show. Sadly we are really light on news this week. But don’t worry, this time we are talking about which is a better console; The SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive or the SNES? Find out what we think by listening in. Have new ideas for a topic next week? Leave a comment!

FINALLY!! Yours truly learned how to edit audio and has a double dose of Sonic Talk for you this week!
Sorry about the lateness of this episode. We recorded this just days before We left for the San Diego Comic Con and it took us forever to get it out. This episode has a lot of GX and Nuckles87 getting on each others nerves in a fun way while I’m lucky to get a word in. One thing I’ll say, this week’s episode has more music than ever before.
Welcome to another odd and exciting episode of the Swingin’ Report Show. This week George, Barry the Nomad and A.J. talk about their Fourth of July drinking, SEGA closing offices in Europe and finally the return of the purple Jester himself. No, I’m not talking about Prince, we are talking about NiGHTS! [Download] [Archive] [Archive] [RSS] [iTunes]
George and Barry the Nomad this week are joined by My Life with SEGA creator A.J. to whine about games being delayed (Anarchy Reigns and Aliens: Colonial Marines), Yakuza 5 and tons of on topic movie stuff. Sit back, relax and enjoy our soothing voices.
