    Anyone else ever get all the Chaos Emeralds in the Master System Sonics? I can't remember for sure about Sonic Chaos, my mind has gone fuzzy, but in Sonic 1 and Sonic 2 they were just hidden amongst the levels. Labrynth Zone in Sonic 1 has an Emerald hidden in spikes, you had to fall in, so invincable for a few seconds, and get it then.

    Yeah, I've gotten all the emeralds in every sonic game.

    The Game Gear version of Sonic 1 doesn't have the Emerald hidden on spikes, by the by. It's layout is almost completely different from the Master System version.

    What, just Labrynth Zone, or other Zones too? I have it on Game Gear, but the batteries always run out before I get that far...

    Just labyrinth zone, but there's other numerous differences. For example, the boss in Greenhill Zone Act 1 is lower so you can constantly hit him, making him the easiest sonic boss in history. Bridge Zone's boss takes place on a bridge in the game gear version. The screen scrolls down in Jungle Zone act 2 on the GG version, making it much easier. The final Boss is a bit different - instead of a wall of electricity, there are 3 pipes which shoot flames up. Oh, and the special stages are entirely different in their layout on the GG version.

    How do you know when to jump for the UFO's?

    You get a feel for it. Thats how I play sonic mainly. I really don't memorize the levels outside of a few special ones, mostly I just feel it out. Play it enough and you start to instinctively get a feel for what will happen when you do something, and you can judge distance better. I dunno, it's hard to explain, but when I play the games I just sort of know when to do the right thing to do.

    If any of that makes sense.

    I personally close my eyes and just jump. And that run of labyrinth zone wasn't all that great.

    Well yeah, it wasn't a speed run. I didn't hit the upper path shortcut. I missed several switches when I fell and had to double back and jump on them, rather than hitting them on the way down. I didn't roll through the corks near the end of act 1. I waited to get the Muteki instead of dropping down on the conveyor belt and hitting the switch.

    I'm probably the harshest critic of my run through labyrinth zone.

    Contrary to popular belief, my life doesn't revolve around the blue hedgehog. I play maybe once every 4 or 5 weeks. Usually in spurts, where I'll go through 2 or 3 games marathon style.

    Sometimes I'll get hooked and play for a week or two straight, but not very often.

    Incase you feel I was getting at you at all, I would just like to point out that you are one of the people on these boards I have the most respect for, you have a technical knowledge and insight into a range of stuff way beyond what I could ever hope for, and are always more than happy to share it, in an easy to understand, and interesting way. These boards are much better off with you around that they would be without you.

    Oh man, I'm sure I could link to a bunch of NSF images proving very much that the sonic games are anything buy gay, but I will leave it to your imagination.

    Edit: Well, the first GIS result for "sonic porn" seems to disagree with me...

    What does destroying the Metal Sonic hologram do? I know it doesn't create a good future by itself, and you get a good future even if you don't destroy it, as long as you get that generator thing.

    That's it? Like, it has no other reason to exist? Crazy.

    Also, was that the Japenese soundtrack that everybody was so excited about? Why do people make such a big deal out of that? The US soundtrack is much better.

    The only Sonic I've never got all the emeralds in without some kind of F5 is Sonic 2. I honestly think that anyone who can complete that last special stage on a normal run-through is an absolute god. Getting all the chaos and super emeralds in S3+K, and seeing Hyper Sonic for the first time, was one of the best days of my childhood and a highlight of my gaming history. I've still not done it with Knuckles or Tails, though.

    I could never get it by myself when I was young, my best friend and I would have to team up to get the last stage. More than a few years later, I picked it up and was shocked at how easy it was to get emeralds, even the last one. You should give it another shot.

    Naw and you're not missing much. Graphics, music, and special stages are rock solid spot on./QUOTE]

    The special stages which (can) rotate 360 around you? I found them even more frustrating than the Sonic 2 or the Sonic 3 and S&K stages.

    You are running in a Hexagon or inside a similar structure most of them time and (if the level allows it) you can also run along the wall of your choosing - the camara rotates with you, so your protagonist is always displayed at the bottom. There are lots of bottomless pits/missing panels on every side, if you fall down it means you are out of the special stage. Each of this stages is divided in different paths and you have to collect a certain amount of spheres while running through one set path. You must keep collecting rings as well because they decrease too, like a time limit. The path/course changes after you collect the required amount of spheres. After you finish each course (variation of the path) you get the edit: chaos ring(?). Unfortunately the special stages contains lots of popups, clipping and often an unfair design which forces you to remember the whole structure during the later stages. You run only forward and there are lots of death ends. (unless you are lucky and find a bumper which bounces you back - this is also the only time you run backwards) I remember the special stage was pretty long and time consuming because of this. At least you have enough opportunities to retry it (after completing an act/regular stage).

    The concept is nice, the implementation isn't.
    Here is a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzGhR2hAvxA&feature=related

    The sphere stages in Sonic 3 were the best. They were challenging, the pseudo 3D was amazing at the time of the release, I had fun playing it and you had enough opportunities to get to these stages. Best of all, no bullshit "collect 50 rings" was required, so you could still breeze through the levels without caring about not getting hit.

    You know which emerald was hard? The last one in Sonic Rush.

    Luckily there was a very easy way to just try it infinite times.

    Got them all in all the megadrive ones many, many times over.

    Also did for sonic advance 1, but advance 2 and 3 require way too much effort to get them, especially 2. Fuck that noise. Also, done it for all the 3D ones bar sonic heroes since the spoecial stages fuck up far too often and send you BACK IN THE WRONG DIRECTION for no reason I can tell.

    This 3D alternate world where you're running on a track that twists and turns. Lots of mines mixed up with coins.

    That happened to be the most fun part of that game, back when I was too young to fully understand how awful it was.

    I've gotten all the Time Stones in Sonic CD (and it was a blast) but that was it.

    I got all the emeralds in Sonic 1, all the super emeralds in Sonic 3 with Knuckles and all of the Time Stones in Sonic CD. Sonic 2, however, I never beat with all of the emeralds.
