Sly Reflex wrote:Yup, it got a UK release. I remember playing this back in the 90's. Not sure you would have the room to store this, and the cameo is quite brief.
You can bet he turned up in other SEGA published tables as well. I guess it depends on how far you want to push your collection.

Sonic is a fantastic franchise to collect for though, and there are plenty of games to go for, including pack-in's, variants (Eg, Platinum / Classics / Player's Choice), and also the same games on different consoles, plus it has its fair share of LE's and CE's etc...
Do you have a list to go by? Are you focusing on any particular console first, such as Mega Drive, or just buying whatever comes your way? Is there anything you know of which you think you may struggle to find, or which may perhaps be a little out of your price range at the moment (Ie, a boxed complete Knuckles Chaotix)?
However, I do think extending to pinball tables might be taking it too far! Lol. With this in mind, do you have a cut-off point, or will you get dragged into buying all sorts of Sonic merchandise? Personally I would stick with just the console and PC games, otherwise you could end up overrun with Sonic plushies with nowhere to store them all, and you'll be back at square one
If it's games with Sonic cameo's in you're after, then Soleil on the Mega Drive has a brief cameo of Sonic sunbathing on a beach in one of the earlier levels. You might also want to check out anything developed by Sonic Team, as they quite often include Sonic as a cameo within their games (Phantasy Star Online being a prime example)

Also nice collection you have there.

phantasy star's sonic cameo was down to the default names of the character classes weren't they? i always remember them being sonic tails and knuckles when i saw press photos of the games.

If you want to play the game and not bothered about playing it on the original hardware, then I would suggest downloading the GENS emulator and a copy of the game ROM. You're seriously not missing much though - It's one of the low-lights of the franchisephantasy star's sonic cameo was down to the default names of the character classes weren't they? i always remember them being sonic tails and knuckles when i saw press photos of the games.
Not too sure on that. However, the game did briefly feature some Sonic Adventure 2 viral advertising in-game back in the day, although I think this may have been for those playing online only. Phantasy Star Online does also feature upgradable Mags which come in a range of designs including the Chao's from the Sonic Adventure games. I am also sure that being a Sonic Team game there are other hidden Sonic references throughout
