    when Michael says there's games he gives a shit about getting everything inside a game and there's games where he just wants to play and beat. I'm the exact same way.

    Fun Fact for all of you guys. They were talking about Sonic's real name. In the Archie comic series it is revealed that his full name is Ogilvie Maurice Hedgehog. Eggman is just a nickname because of how his body is shaped. He is still Doctor Ivo Robotnik.

      His name is Doctor Egghead in Asian regions, it really is a weird translation thing.

      You aren't wrong Eggman is his name, but when Sonic Adventure launched on the Dreamcast, Sega changed his name in both versions to be Doctor Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik. Since Adventure Eggman is more of an insult than anything.

    Why does everyone always skip past the "2 Player" option on the main menu that gives you proper split screen? Does the US version for the Genesis not have this?! (It is definitely there in the PAL version for Megadrive)

      its there but this looks like the XBLA version so it looked mislabeled. "local co-op" vs "Local Verses" what we know as split screen is probably the Verses.

      That's a versus race mode, only way to co-op it is how it's done in the video.

    • bjm1904 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold the_editor1904

      @TekkieX not so. With the original version you had the choice between 1 Player or 2 Player, and the latter does a horizontal split screen.

      Clearly the XBOX port either mislabels the options (as @SirNickels mentioned) and they picked the wrong one or it's missing. Either way it's a shame as they spend the entire time basically saying Tails is pointless. Geek & Sundry I think made the same mistake.

      @bjm1904 I just loaded up the original game, the only 2 player option is the versus race mode and only has 4 levels. But the XBLA version does have a local co-op option if you pick multiplayer, I don't have a second pad so I can't test it.

      Originally Dr Ovi Kintobor*, then he became Ivo Robotnik then they thought calling him Eggman was cool. *Well that's from the old ass comics anyway, not sure about the game's canon though.

    I actually really liked listening to Gavin and Michael talk in this one--like, about their childhood and Lindsey's science experiment haha. Very calming and pleasant PP. Also, shoutout to 9:24--I was actually surprised Michael didn't do a "Haha! Brits, amiright??" moment there lol

    His original name was Eggman - he was designed as the protagonist at first and the developers wanted him to be a shape easy to draw, so an egg shape, and named him Eggman, but he was only named in the manual. In the western release he was called Robotnik, and later Ivo Robotnick (Julian in SatAM and the Sonic comics).


    At some point (I think Sonic Adventure or Adventure 2), the developers confirmed both names as canon. His 'true' name is Ivo Robotnik and his villain alias is Eggman.

    • British_Knight FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Misunderstood Sarcastic

      Can confirm.

      His name was always Eggman in Japanese, but in translation it to the western audience it was Robotnik. His first encounter with Sonic in Adventure spins the line "Hey look, a giant talking egg". But throughout the game his name was Robotnik, his dream empire was Robotnik-Land. Although his ship was the Egg Carrier and EC2.


      In SA2, he is primarily known as Eggman, but on a TV screen during the game when he blows up the moon, the word Robotnik cycles behind him. After that, the Robotnik name basically wasn't ever mentioned again.


      I think it was the early anime shows that he got his first name Ivo. Not too sure on that and too lazy to fact check.

      I know in the comics his real name is Julian Kintobor (Robotnik backwards) and then he changes it to Ivo Robotnik. Though in the comics THAT Robotnik dies and the 'Eggman' we know is a Robotnik from an alternate universe who also dies but puts his mind in an egg-shaped robotic body... The comics get pretty fuckin' deep.

    There was two sonic shows when I was a kid. One was very comedic and the other was awesome that had them as a resistance group. Also as long as the two guys walking into the water outdo the buoyant force of the wood boat and the air in the boat they should be able to walk along the bottom of the water.

    there should have been an option for head to head 2 player, becuase there is no real co-op as you see.

    Crisps and milk is bad enough but the fact that it was Skips (probably prawn cocktail flavor) makes it worse some how.
