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.

With Sonic Adventure 2 approaching, Spnic Adventure 1 and it’s DLC have been cut in half!
Sonic Adventure 2 Achievements have been leaked. Chao Raising Achievements!
The new Wreck it Ralph trailer is up and quick to spot eyes have found Sonic outside of his PDA cameo in another scene! Looks like there’s more Sonic in this movie than previously known!
A new “Where’s Waldo?” type book, “Where’s Sonic?” Will be released sometime in October. The book seems to use a bunch of CGI Sonic stock art.
Shit has gotten real! Ken Penders has managed to have diamond comic distributors stop from delivering copies of Knuckles Archives volume 3 to comic specialty stores.
Crush 40 has a live CD heading out in October. Hopefully, an iTunes version isn’t far behind.
A human parody of Sonic will appear in a console war anime series called “In the Centre of the Blue World” and is a parody anime series about the Nintendo vs. Sega console wars of the 90’s apparently.
SA2’s “Battle Mode” Comes back as DLC. Also, Big the Cat returns as background cameos in SA2.

BTW, my money on the new, flying flagman is either…
A.) The dude from Space Harrier or…
B.) Cream the Rabbit.
“SEGA bits and bobs!”
I know, right? totally unintentional but awesome.
Peter Griffin – “Ah! He said it!”
So, did he really say that Toot Toot Sonic Warrior in on the Seaside Hill track, but the US version will have Sonic Boom?
I wasn’t sure what be meant when he said “but not the american version, bizarrely, because that’s Sonic boom”. Seemed he was implying Euro version has Toot Toot and US has Boom?
I’m confused on that too.
I kinda missed my oppurtunity to let Steve convince Sega to have the next title to have “Megamix” since it’s a Sega thing and have Sakura or Bahn in it too due to my internet cutting off but what the hay. 4-player Co op campaign online for Transformed! Hell yeah, we have to have a community gathering when it comes out.
New flagman – Omochao? Tikal, perhaps?
Jet Set Radio is missing two songs, including “Yappie Feet,” one of the best.
Sega confirmed a month ago that they had secured the license to one of those two songs, but didn’t say which one.
If Homochao is the flag man he’d be giving tips in the race while being the flagman. We dont need to hear “PRESS THE X/A BUTTON TO ACCELERATE.” If SEGA is pulling a Generations with Omochao (if he is in ASRT) hopefully we can turn him off. Omochao apparently has been practicing his running considering we couldnt outrun that little guy in Gens.
You guys got to talk to DarthSOL?
Napoleon Dynamite: LUCKY!!!
