Sometimes I make some pretty big mistakes, Like that time I bought Dark Void and tried to convince myself over the next few days that it was actually good.Other times my childish brain decides for me... for instance some time last week I was playing the brilliantly brilliant Sonic Generations and got to the Shadow boss stage where I was met with some mid 90s saturday morning cartoon sounding Shadow theme. It went like "shadooooooowwww, he's the coolest, he's a hedgehog and heeees black and red n' stuff"* with some grrr metal behind it. It was the greatest/worst/greatest/worst/greatest song I had ever heard so I hopped onto amazon marketplace to get what I initially thought was the greatest deal of the decade... Shadow the Hedgehog for 45p.
This was quite possibly one of the biggest gaming mistakes I had ever made. It turns out that Shadow rivals Ecco as Sega's biggest douchebag. Not only does he think an SMG is like a pump action shotgun but he's a whiney piece of shit thats all "who am I?" until hes snorting ground up chaos emeralds off some furry prostitutes tail at the end of the stage where he thinks hes the shit and other edgy terms that may or may not be out of date. AND he still manages to make friends with Charmy the Bee and Fuckface the Marmoset.
45p was too much money for this shit. I was going to do an extensive write up on all of the worst Sonic games, but this soured all interest in a matter of minutes. I played the game for 3 hours straight and I can only imagine the nightmares i'd get from Sonic 06.
Instead here are some photos of the games journey from the Xbox to the bin!
