Hog Wild By Day, Dog Tired By Night - Let's Play Sonic Unleashed


In the first decade of this millenium, Sonic has had his ups and downs. First, we had the Adventure games, which, if you ask me, are impeccable. The best. After that, there was a whole slew of gradually worse and more soulless games, such as Sonic Heroes or anything made by Dimps. You all know Sonic 06, the disastrous, buggy 360/PS3 title that completely tanked the series’ reputation for fans and casual observers alike.

Not long after that, though, there was a ray of hope, a new, promising thing called Sonic and the Secret RingsSonic Unleashed. I have fond enough memories of this game and I’ve never beaten it, and I want nothing more than to show people that no, really, it’s good. It’s got high speed, it’s got globetrotting, it’s good old fashioned Sonic back to its roots. None of this game is going to be a terrible ordeal.

Joining me for this joyous romp is my brother.

…he’s entitled to his opinion. Anyway, showing is better then telling, so let’s get showin’!

Why are you doing this to yourself

What did you do to make you think that you needed this as penance

What can I say? I just like good games.

I unapologetically love this whole game and hope more people come around to it. Thank you for playing it.


It’s highly adequate!

Your brother is a real sourpuss, Lizwiz.


He hates that hedgehog.

How egg shaped would you say he is?

He’s very bald.

I can’t remember, did Werehog Sonic come before or after the Sonic With A Sword? Sonic games went through a weird phase after Sonic 2006, they were just slinging strange gimmicks left and right.

Before. You might be thinking of Sonic and the Secret Rings, which was also bad and on the Wii.

I’m damn bald, get it right

sonic is terrible, love to hate it, buttigeig '28, brother out

Strap in; it’s gonna be a long night.

I remember Charles the Accountant Teaches Spreadsheets. One of the few things that truly needs a modern-day reboot.

So apparently my supplementary Sonic let’s play is here too! Which is neato, and I suppose that means I should also post the second video here.

Welcome to the PS2/Wii Werehog segments, which I am not a fan of, but at worst are incredibly average.

I should really keep better track of what font I’m using for update images. Oh well.

okay, i like this, i am commenting, and i subscribed on my wii u before. does that make you an official professional youtuber yet lizwiz?

Yes, it in fact does!

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to have a lackluster solo career without my brother and eventually show that I have horrible backwards political beliefs.


It’s true, there are so many politics to talk about in the games you play.
