Are the indepentent developers Sonic's only hope? [edited]

I think that it's old news, but.. Several days before i discovered 2 ongoing Fan Made Sonic projects. Nothing to do with half-baked 3D sonic or 2D like NeoSonic. (which is cool)

The first one is Sonic GL. Most of you already know about it. There are also videos around Youtube

Sonic GL video

Yeah it feels extremely good even if the video shows pre-beta gameplay footage. You noticed the giant textureless robots too... This is the first 3D fan made sonic i heard. Oh did i mentioned that it uses OpenGL?

The second and most impressive attempt is an Unreal Tournament 2004 mod named Ashura Dark Legion. You can visit its page at MODDB.

There also will be a Sonic mod for Halo named "Sonic and the Genesis of the Azure Wind"
I don't know why but there is also the name "Sonic Online" floating all over the internet for the same game. the main page of the project is here

sonic online or whatever name is... video

Oh and there were also a Sonic:Source but the creators halted it.
Will these attempts from fans worth the wait? Will the fans show the way of making Sonic Games to Sonic Team?

All we can do for now is wait until these games/mods come out...

edit note: pardon me but i hate BBcodes... especially when they don't work the way they should

About Mariolandone of us since 7:35 PM on 02.04.2008

Hey! I'm a 24 years old man and I'm living in Greece. Video games aren't banned in Greece.

Here's another update to my blog description.
Hi, I'm Marioland and I'm a gamer for a long long time. Greece sucks in general. I'm still practically unemployed. We have a VAT rate at 24% for everything except milk and the cost of living vs the salaries are so unequal, that it is needed to have two jobs in order to run your own house. We are the generation that grew up and stays in parents' basements.

My angst for the lame gamers in Greece is now silenced. Everybody plays as they want. I don't care. I have enough friends to play with so, random matches are a stranger to me.

Younger gamers still can't afford to READ the solution for a game. Let alone play it themselves.

And, yeah. Somehow I feel happy. Also, I kinda like gaming on iDevices, as long as it's not an iPhone.

I am growing old to the gaming journalism, but I still count my self as a newcomer. I contribute to a greek gaming site called Game 2.0 where I post news, reviews and editorials. It's all in Greek so, it will be kinda Greek to you.
I still believe that gaming journalism is a harsh place. Everything you do gets a lot of negative attention (that's kinda good in a cynical point of view). But, now I know more of the people in other sites, I could see that some of them are actually good people.

Anyways, I own a DSi, a PSP, an Xbox 360, a Wii and an iPod Touch 4G 32GB. Feel free to ask me for friendship on these platforms. It would be nice to get my ass handed to me by someone from Dtoid.

Keep Gaming!

Update kinda lame. But I had fun changing it!
