Sonic News Bytes

Hi everyone! I'm back from my week hiatus in Birmingham and ready to update! It's been a bit of a slow news week so I'll cover some smaller things that have happened recently: 
 

  • Sonic Internet News - Those of you wondering what was happening on the development of Sonic Robo Blast as far as fan games go, it seems Sonniku has vanished and A.J. Freda of Segasonic.net has taken over as programmer. Whether this is permanent we're not sure of, but we'll be sure to tell you as we find out more information. 
     
  • Sonic Underground No More? - According to Sonic fan Rlan - it seems Sonic Underground has been cancelled in Australia. Either it reached its 40 episode maximum or the TV program that hosted it, "Big Breakfast", has dropped it from thier line up. This makes the second country that has supposedly dropped Sonic Underground, with the first being the U.K. Bad quality in the program perhaps? Personally thats what I think... 
     
  • Two New Midis - Well known Sonic Music Composer, Jarel Jones has released two new Sonic Adventure midis! This time around, it's a remix of the Competition tune from Sonic 3. Realize that some of the chords are different, but Jarel did that on purpose. Two versions were made, one GM and one XG. But neither have XG effects. Their only difference is in musical intruments. The GM midi uses instruments that sound better with Sound Blast 32/AWE cards (and Wingroove) while the XG version sounds better on cards such as the Yamaha Soft Synthesizer (S-YXG100 is a good example). You can access the midis here:

    Thanks for being patient with me in my time of absence and sending letters asking where I was. Especially those who knew why I was away. Lets get down to the news! ^_^

SU on the Sci-Fi Channel

Apparently, Sonic Underground won't be on the Sci-Fi Channel for just this month. It will also be on at LEAST through November as well. In fact, Knuckles' first appearance in the show ("Friend Or Foe") will be shown that month.

Strangely enough, on the 29th of November, they show "Wedding Bell Blues" again, followed by "No Hedgehog Is An Island" again. Without even showing "Flying Fortess", which seems really odd. As for if it'll continue into December is as of yet unknown.

SatAM Petition

Sonique has sent this to Sonic HQ News concerning a petition to get the SatAM series back:

At Sonic Stuff and Perfect Chaos and various other Sonic sites, there is a petition you can sign to get the SatAM back on the air. I know you are all thinking of how it won't work but the reason past petitions didn't work was because the people in charge of them either gave up or didn't bother to send in the info. With the low ratings on SU, we may have a chance to get our favorite Sonic show back. New episodes? It's possible if enough people sign, but please don't disregard this petition because of others that didn't work. Sign it and show DiC and everyone else how much we want this back! Visit Sonic Stuff or Perfect Chaos for a link to the petition! If you are a webmaster, you may want to concider putting up a link to this on your page!

Good luck to all SatAM fans!
