Video Spotlight: Summer of Sonic 2012

Sunday, July 8th, 2012

So another Summer of Sonic comes to a close. The annual Sonic convention created by fans and run by fans was hit with a major stroke of bad luck when the original venue suffered from a power-cut which led to an electrical fire. Luckily, an alternative venue was acquired just in the nick of time and the convention was moved from the Hove Centre to the Brighton Centre in just 3 hours.

Despite the set-back, this year’s Summer of Sonic turned into one of the best and everyone who staffed it did an amazing job. Hopefully, all our attendees had a fantastic time!

Here’s some footage we managed to shoot while we weren’t busy elsewhere; enjoy!

SEGADriven Featured on The SonicNews Show at Sonic Paradox

Monday, May 14th, 2012

Last night we participated in SSF1991’s SonicNews Show which livestreams from Sonic Paradox’s page every Sunday at 6pm Eastern time/11pm UK time. The show started an hour earlier than usual as I didn’t realise it was kicking off so late (thanks to SSF1991 for making arrangements that allowed us to do that!) and I really enjoyed having a chat with SSF1991 about last week’s Sonic and SEGA related news.

You can listen to a repeat of the entire show via this YouTube link and hear myself and SSF1991 chat about Summer of Sonic, the 3DS release of Sonic Labyrinth, the first reviews for Sonic 4 Episode 2 and much, much more:

Thanks once again to SSF1991 from Sonic Paradox for allowing me on the show! You can follow SSF on Twitter using @SSF1991 and remember to visit Sonic Paradox for some of the best fan-animations in the business!
