The Chaotix See Action Again?

by WB

For those that didnt know, yesterday was the release of Knuckles #32 - the final issue of the book.

All the Knuckles stories will be moving as permanent backups in the issues of Sonic The Hedgehog starting in two weeks with Sonic #79 - The Sonic Adventure Adaption. But where will Knuckles, The Chaotix, Julie-Su and the inhabitants of the Floating Island be during the reign of Eggman and Perfect Chaos? Ken Penders had this to say:

Y'know, a number of you are commenting that you might as well blow off the SONIC ADVENTURE game adaptation as a big waste of space, on the premise that we're merely repeating the very game a lot of you are playing. For those of you who do, you'll be missing out, especially where Knuck

Toonami Reviews Sonic Adventure!

by WB

An interesting tidbit that I thought I'd mention here, Cartoon Network's block of Toonami - The Midnight Run did a review of Dreamcast games, and among those reviewed were Sonic Adventure! If I'm correct, SA recieved a 4 out of 5 whereas the DC itself recieved a 5 out of 5. The only game given a bad review was Blue Stinger in which the little computer animated Tom (host of Toonami) told viewers to avoid like the plague. ^_^

You can probably catch this small insert review on the daily showings of CN's Toonami or the Midnight Run schedule on Saturday nights.

The Latest In DC Sales - England And USA

by WB

The latest list of chart toppers have arrived for Dreamcast. In the USA, Visual Concepts NFL 2K leads the Dreamcast pack. Furthermore, the popular football title dominated the week before, and expect to see it stay at the top, as the Super Bowl nears in January. Following in second was Sonic Adventure, and Ready 2 Rumble in thirdplace.

The United Kingdom however - is a different story. Shortages of DC games are causing a lot of them to slip off the main list of top selling games (it needs to be noted that Sonic Adventure in America has also slipped on the main list of top sellers due to the Game Boy Color and Pokemon). However - Sonic Adventure still remains as a top 4 seller in the DC only depa

Addition to Rlan's article below...

by Duo

In addition to Rlan's post below, I'd like to add a few things:

The original version of Sonic #80's cover was Sonic vs. Chaos 0. Instead, this looks to be a redone version of what would've been Knuckles #33. Knuckles, Robotnik, and Big (with Froggy) look as if they have been re-drawn from the original version, while Sonic has been added. Knux, Robo, and Big/Froggy are still in the same areas they were on the original Knuckles #33 cover.
