Sonic 3 Complete!

Update: Sonic 3 guide now complete! Launch Base Zone, Miscellaneous Notes, and Downloads pages added.
Finally!.. This guide seems to have lasted forever, but Sonic 3 is now complete at last! Feels pretty good, I must say. I've even treated you to a three for one offer - A whole level, a brief info page, and the always popular Downloads page. The latter two only took me the last two or three evenings to pull together, so I thought I'd wait a bit and bundle them all in one update.

As I mentioned in my last post, Launch Base Zone, so vastly different in its Sonic 3 and Sonic 3 & Knuckles versions, gets two maps per act. Thankfully this is the last time I'll have to add water to my maps too, which is always a pain. Miscellaneous contains the usual stuff really, although at the last minute I decided to add a short summary of the whole Michael Jackson debacle and theories behind his involvement in the soundtrack. Some quite interesting things that I thought worth including, although mostly from Sonic Retro, I must admit. And of course, the all important Downloads page - a higher ranker in my page stats for each of the other three guides, so I expect much the same again.

I'll keep things short and sweet. There's been fantastically little going on in Sonic's world lately to discuss anyway, even if I had the inclination to do so right now. Sonic & Knuckles is the next guide, as you'd imagine, and it will be starting soon. I do aim for it to be complete much quicker than Sonic 3 was, mostly for my own personal benefit, but whether it will or not is anybody's guess. Before I do that though, I will post again soon, hopefully this weekend, and unless I change my mind between now and then, it'll be a very very important post. One that you'll want to pay attention to if you care about the future of this site.

That's all I'll say for now. Enjoy the new sections..!

Finally, Launch Base Zone! Been looking forward to this one. There are a lot of hard to reach paths in this place, and the special zone rings are rather hidden, so I hope this can actually help some people out. Not to mention seeing the differences between the two versions of this zone. Should be interesting.

Definitely looking forward to Sonic & Knuckles. I'll keep checking back for your updates (like this weekend) to see what's new.

I kept on looking and hoping for Launch Base zone ever since you mentioned it in the December blog.
My time has come!

What're you going to do with Blue Sphere? Is it going to share a page with Sonic & Knuckles or be a seperate article on it's own?

Thanks all :)

Blue Sphere will be part of the Sonic & Knuckles guide.

Thanks for working so hard on all of these great guides. The level of detail, as always, is great and the visual style you use in presenting everything just makes it even better. It's all very professional while still having a fun feel. I think someone else may have mentioned to it, but is it true that if you're Super Sonic while fighting the final boss in Sonic 3 that he can still grab you?

Sonic's latest Wii U outing turns away from the popular and well established speed dashes of recent games, in favour of a more traditional platformer approach. But does it work? Get ready for one of the most different Sonic games in every respect!
We've finally done it! The Zone: 0 guides have reached their last big update. Owner LiQuidShade has new projects on the horizon, but this site will always remain in his heart.
