Retronauts Episode 524: Sonic 3 & Knuckles, Part 1

Brought to you by SodaStream?

As much fun as I had dragging Stuart Gipp and Dave Bulmer onto the show in order to explain to me the ins and outs of Sonic the Hedgehog in our episode about Sonic Frontiers, I can understand why some fans might have felt let down. If you're already a Sonic superfan, you don't need an ignorant interloper such as myself asking questions like "since when does Sonic transform into Super Sonic?"

I hope this week's podcast delivers everything a fan could ask for, because Stu and Dave return and welcome first-time guest Seumidh MacDonald onto the program for the first part in a multi-episode dive into Sonic 3 & Knuckles, the 16-bit Sonic game so big, it came on two cartridges that joined together like a miniature Voltron with much smaller Robeasts; yes, I can call the enemies in a Sonic game that name because they're part robot and part beast!

Description: Stuart Gipp begins his threatened deep dive into the Sonic the Hedgehog series, joined by stalwart hogmaniac Seumidh MacDonald and just regular maniac Dave Bulmer. You ain't ready for this.
