Sonic Talk #4: Episode 2

Here it is folks! Only our fourth show in and we got our first big guest. Sonic 4 Brand Manager, Ken Balough! He’ll be answering some of your concerns about the upcoming Sonic 4: Episode 2.

But that won’t be until the middle of the show. In the meantime, Nuckles 87 and I are joined by GX Echidna and nSega54 to talk about what small news we have on the upcoming Game Gear games for 3DS, our favorite Archie Sonic artists, what Sonic would look like if he was drawn by slices of pizza instead of artists, and, after the interview, we talk about the Sonic Advance series. Read on to leave a comment or see our show notes.

This week, we discuss….

What we’ve been up to.


The first 3 Game Gear games for 3DS have been priced. Is Triple Trouble worth $5? Hell yea!

Two new Game Gear games have been rated in Australia and they are two of Sonic’s worst.

COMIC TALK: Find out what our favorite Sonic artists.

MAIN TOPIC/INTERVIEW: (The part half the listeners will probably fast-forward to. XP ) Ken Balough talks all things Sonic 4 related. What’s the story? Why is Tails not playable in single player? What are the main changes in physics? All these questions and more will be answered.

GAME DISCUSSION: We look over the Sonic Advance series of games.

    I don’t really hate Tails THAT much…I just got caught up in the heat of the moment.

    I’m just a Knuckles fanboy is all 😀

  2. Chris K. says:

    In regards to Tails being single player, it’s just a matter of your all too damn lazy.

  3. Chris K. says:

    “People don’t like the bumpers?”

    No duh Dick Tracy.

    It’s not a case of being “too damn lazy”, it’s a case of budget and resources, as he explained. Its not like they can just overcome these limitations by working harder. It doesn’t work like that. If you don’t have the time or resources, you just….can’t do it. Not well, anyway.

    Damn Lady gaga gone BAD!

    Good interview guys. My only question is WHY is Lock-on feature always overlooked?

    They promised us a BIGGER game than Sonic 3 & Knuckles (combined) and the only way to pull this off is through combining every episode in Sonic 4.

    I encourage people (who care about this anyway) to not let them “forget” they said this.

    Other than this, great interview. Kellie was sure silent.

    She was mostly there to monitor things.

    Is there a transcript somewhere ?

    • barry the nomad says:

      the interview is a part of the podcast, so no. unless somebody transscribes it, which would take a long time given the interview length, the interview is audio only. are you having technical problems playing it?

  9. Blue Wisp says:

    Still hearing the interview, having a tough time understanding a few things though. I’d love to have a script. 😛

    Despite that, it’s really good so far.

    Music Plant was Advance 2. The Toy Factory was Advance 3. Just to clarify; you know how the internet is, someone has to correct any mistake made.
