A Look Back on my History With Sonic the Hedgehog

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015


This is a bit of a self-indulgent little piece but I felt compelled to write something about my history with the Sonic franchise as it’s the hedgehog’s 24th anniversary today.

If you’ve ever wondered about the history of SEGADriven and our “place” in the Sonic community then this should answer any questions you may have! It also acts as a personal celebration of the Sonic franchise and a “thank you” for allowing all of the experiences that have come with it.

Happy 24th birthday Sonic!

Rumour: New Sonic Game Could Be Announced Next Month

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

The Sonic Stadium have revealed that “sources close to SEGA” have revealed to them that a new Sonic game will be either announced or simply teased next month with an estimated release date of September 2013.

There’s an awful lot of details about the game from this mystery source. We’ve detailed the key points below:

* It will be released on Wii U, PS3, 360, 3DS, PS Vita, PC, and “Next gen” consoles
* PC and PS Vita versions will be identical aside from the graphical differences, while the 3DS version will be another Sonic Rush styled game
* Similar to Sonic Unleashed (Daytime), Sonic Colours and Sonic Generations where gameplay switches between full 3D movement and 2D side-scrolling sections
* Each route in a stage will lead to one of two or three exits at the end that will each take you to a different stage
* The developers are trying for a least 20 diferent stages, not including boss battles
* “You might unlock Knuckles in any one of three stages. Sometimes, if you already have a character that would be unlocked first, a different one may be unlocked. Altogether we’re looking at about 10 different characters to play with, and no, Sonic isn’t getting any new friends.”
* Each character will have their own skills to help them progress in stages easier where others will have more difficulty or simply cannot ala Sonic 3 & Knuckles and the Sonic Advance series
* The 3DS version will be “similar in idea, but smaller in scope”. The source says it looks like every stage will only ever branch off into 2 stages.

Long live the TSS Network!

Happy 12th Birthday to The Sonic Stadium!

Wednesday, October 24th, 2012

Our rather spectacular host The Sonic Stadium is 12 years old today! Svend “Dreadknux” Joscelyne started The Sonic Stadium on the 24th of October 2000 and it has grown into the premier Sonic the Hedgehog fansite on the internet. We are very proud to be hosted by them and form a part of the TSS Network.

Without further ado, here’s our birthday message to The Sonic Stadium:

Other standout TSS moments for me include:

– Learning about the pirate Sonic game ‘Sonic 3 Fighter Sonic‘ through an article at TSS and then seeing an actual copy at a bootsale a week later! Yes, I actually bought it knowing full well that it was supposed to be terrible!
– Thoroughly enjoying Brad “Slingerland” Flick’s writing and opinion pieces. I’d love to meet the man one day; seems like a really down-to-Earth/funny guy
– The Sonic Site Awards! We always enjoyed SSA and watching the whole thing unfold. It was always exciting to see if we’d won anything!

Happy 12th Birthday to The Sonic Stadium!

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!
