Continuing the third Arc of Pause:Continue, Peter Willington is joined by Kris Lipscombe from TheSixthAxis to talk Sonic The Hedgehog on the Master System.
They discuss the differences between 8-bit Sonic and his bigger brother on the Mega Drive, how the game was seen as a dumbed down port where in reality it was a far tougher, far more cerebral game than the Blast Processor powered offering. Kris also talks about his childhood and how games were “events”, yet highly personal, and how his father introduced him to the medium.
