Video Spotlight: Shay Deconstructs the Sonic Franchise

Saturday, January 24th, 2015

I’d like to draw your attention to the latest episode of Shay Says. If you’re unfamiliar with the series then it’s a documentary-style video games show that deconstructs certain games of gaming franchises in a similar way to Egoraptor’s Sequelitis.

For the latest episode, Shay is taking a detailed look at the gameplay mechanics of the Sonic franchise (and when I say detailed, I mean detailed). 2 more episodes will follow that look at other aspects of the franchise.

While I wouldn’t normally recommend watching an almost feature length video about a games franchise, Shay has some incredibly interesting things to say about what works and what doesn’t regarding Sonic gameplay mechanics. He’s also one of the few people I’ve seen actively suggest alternative mechanics that might just improve the experience.

If you have the time then please take a look at the below video because it’s an extremely well made and unbiased look at what makes the Sonic franchise work so well and what doesn’t.

Jun Senoue’s Signature Sonic ESP Guitar Now In Production UPDATE

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

Jun Senoue’s legendary Sonic Adventure custom ESP guitar is now being mass-produced!

ESP’s Japan site has just unveiled a new page featuring the guitar’s specs and further details. We can’t read Japanese, but we’re guessing that the details in the giant, red box mean the guitar is only available between 25/08/2011 and 31/12/2011 due to this year being Sonic’s 20th.

Jun’s Twitter also recommends that if you are interested in owning one and you’re not in Japan, you should talk to your local ESP retailer for additional details. This could mean that ESP Japan are willing to ship the guitars worldwide.

EDIT: UK price confirmed! Lick Library have announced the UK price of the Jun Senoue signature ESP guitar will be £1299. Better start saving those pennies! (thanks to Sam Manojlovic)
