Sonic the Hedgehog Retrospective from Gametap

Wow, what a day for great Sonic videos! Gametap has just now released a four part retrospective on Youtube on the history of Sonic, including new interviews with Naoto Ohshima and Yuji Naka, bringing up some facts about his inception we didn't even know about. Who would of thought Sonic's design has influences from Micheal Jackson, Santa Claus and Bill Clinton? It's simply a joy to watch (it's in HD too, if you go directly to the youtube page). The three other parts are below:

The Nostalgia Critic digs his teeth into the Sonic Cartoons

Oh boy, after the Nostalgia Critic did a video about the mario cartoon, I was hoping he may do one for the Sonic cartoons (The original two, Sonic X and Underground are null and void) and here it is! He rips the shit out of Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, particularly about how it doesn't make any sense, but loves SATAM to pieces. As much as I disagree on his AOSTH opinion (it was awesome because of how screwball it was!), it's a bloody entertaining video (as his vids always are, give his website a good hard look if you haven't already) so give it a watch already!
