Yahoo-ites, not sure of the nomenclature here…
But today on this day 17 years ago it was declarerd Hedgehog Day in commemoration of the release of Sonic 3. For waiting impatiently all that day and racing to the video store after school I recieved a free pack of Sonic edition Lifesavers with my rental; and it it was good!
I know it’s Groundhog Day and we all praise or jeer the little rat for predicting the early or late arrival of spring, but it was also the release date of one the greatest games of all time!
So show your appreciation for hedgehogs and two-tailed foxes everywhere on this day, whip out your Sega Genesises or virtual console downloads, and play some classic Sonic from the 16-bit days of yore
(and not the bad 3D games that ensure an unpleasant experience for all, except the Groundhog)
