Swingin’ Report Show #11: Getting hot with Sonic

This week we have a special sexy Sonic edition podcast. He is turning 20 and we are celebrating in style. Graham (from SEGA Nerds) and Shigs both join me to discuss Summer of Sonic, VMUs and much more. Listen this week for a chance to win a Sonic Boom shirt! Sadly, the Jewish man known as Nuckles87 who travels all the time couldn’t make it in time for this podcast to talk about his experience at Summer of Sonic.

    @Shigs your picture uploaded fine. LOOK. You guys gotta stop blaming everything on me, like seriously! =P

    @George come move to Minneapolis. You get all the heat you want during the summer, and all the sub-zero temperatures you want during the winter.

    I miss the VMU's back in the day where you can transfer minigames like Chao Garden and powering up your character's stregth for Zombie Revenge. Sega needs to do this on next gen portable consoles.

    ?!! I'm not blaming you for anything Shadi! It's wordpress I'm having the trouble with. This is not your fault at all.

    Silence mortal

    as you can see the pic uploaded just fine, i didn't upload that, you did =P

    Im just confused how you're saying you can't upload your overly huge resolution pics, but that one seems to have uploaded just fine

    Because it doesn't show up in WordPress and tells me something messed up. Maybe it fixes itself afterwards?

    Great show guys! I found the part about Summer of Sonic really interesting. It's great that so many people are passionate about the franchise and went to come out to the event. Hopefully things will work out in the years to come so more people will be able to participate.

  7. I don't suppose… No. I won't even ask. I'll just download it from this site again.

    I didn't get a chance to listen to the whole podcast. How do we win the remaining t-shirts?

    I agree with G that Sonic and the Black Knight is SO much worse than Sonic '06.

    Not that I'm defending Sonic '06, game's definitely crap, but Black Knight's even worse.

    Europe is in bed with SEGA 'cause Nintendo never gave two shits about Europe back in the day. All SEGA had to do was have a decent leg up on publishing, add a pinch of competent PR, and voila. I think they sort of threw them a lifesaver, and miraculously enough, it didn't sink or at least drown them.
    I've always been fascinated by the relationship of European fans and SEGA. They clearly make other regions look like a dingleberry in comparison. I mean, having something exist today like "Summer of Sonic" is fucking hilarious, but on the other hand it's cool that fans actually band together for once. The typical U.S. game fan couldn't give two shits about SEGA these days (sometimes for good reason.). Although, I can… appreciate SEGA these days. I'm not a dedicated fan like many of you guys here. ::snickers::

    Then again, Nintendo of American can choke on a dick these days. No Last Story or Xenoblade Chronicles? WANK to them! http://seanmalstrom.wordpress.com/2011/06/26/goni
    Although. it seems only Nintendo cares about now are "poor Latinos".

    "Whether those opportunities are regional, for example, in our Latin America markets, or whether those opportunities are ethnic, we have identified the Hispanic consumer as a key opportunity for us. They share the family values that we have in our Nintendo product line." http://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/en/library/events/11

    Oh, and look at this shit: http://youtu.be/nwd56K7rp7A

      Yeah Nintendo of America is seriously effing their fans over by refusing to localize Xenoblade/Last Story. It's making them look terrible and they don't even seem to care.
