Sonic Retrospective Part XIII - Sonic the Hedgehog Pocket Adventure

The Neo Geo Pocket was one of the many short-lived handhelds that fell to Nintendo's domination of the handheld market and there was a Sonic game for it. Sonic the Hedgehog Pocket Adventure is almost like a remake of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 using Sonic 3 music. It is also the first Sonic game made by Dimps, who would go on to make almost every other portable Sonic game.

The levels all correspond to Sonic 2 levels, but shuffled up a bit. The level design is even much the same in some stages. Here is the level map of Pocket Adventure's Aquatic Reflex Zone and here is a level map of Sonic 2's Aquatic Ruin for comparison. While they are not exactly the same, they are very similar.

80s action Movie Month

It's time for another theme month at I Don't Even. This time it's 80s action movies. Each week will feature a different 80s action movie star. We're starting off with Jean Claude Van Damme and will mostly keep to stars we (somehow) haven't gotten to on I Don't Even yet (Street Fighter doesn't count as a Van Damme movie, that's a Raul Julia film), so get ready for stupidly badass fight scenes every Wednesday.


Patz on the STARcast

Thanks to the magical world that is twitter I got the chance to talk to the very cool fightbait on his STARcast podcast. We talked about some random stuff like Twitter clients, blogging, and doing panels at anime conventions. It was a ton of fun so go give it a listen on

STARcast ep016: Chillin' With Patz Prime!


More Trapped in the Closet coming to IFC

Last we heard from R. Kelly, he had written another 32 chapters of Trapped in the Closet. You may recall that there are only 22 chapters already written and that it ended on a cliffhanger that involved potentially everyone having AIDS. Well, we will now know what's happening with Pimp Lucius, Rosie the nosy neighbor and the Big Man the midget (midget (midget (midget))) because the Independent Film Channel has decided to pick up the series. It is currently unknown exactly what quantity and variety of drugs were involved to make IFC think this would be a good idea, but I do know that it will be coming to an I Don't Even near you when it airs. 


Transformers Trilogy Boxset Impressions

A couple of weeks ago a brand new Transformers movie boxset came out. So since I am a massive Transformers I had to pick it up. The set is really cool. It is made up of 7 Blu-Ray discs and comes with tons of extras! The most distinctive thing about this set though is that if comes in a really cool collectors set. I grabbed a bunch of pics of it so check em out after the jump.
