See...street cred! Woohoo! I was obsessed with Sonic. I never had a Nintendo (although I bought my son an N64, of course), so I missed the whole Mario Brothers obsession. Sonic was/is my obsession. It takes serious obsession to beat ANY game that doesn't have a save function.

I've heard about that "cheat" or glitch or whatever for Sonic 2, but I've never been able to find it. I'd feel obligated to continue playing, no matter how long it took, if I did. As a 43 year old single mother of a teenager, it's probably just as well I can't find it...lol. Stupid responsibilities and adulthood...

Earthworm Jim 2 was far better than the first one, but I never could beat it. I LOVE Earthworm Jim. Someone needs to bring him back...both in video game and cartoon form. Again, the Earthworm Jim challenge was accomplished during a blown off week of college. I think I may have been drinking whiskey this time, but I really don't remember. I did beat it though. I have a picture of the final screen for both Sonic and Earthworm Jim to prove it. Maybe that's why I can't accomplish these things anymore, I hardly ever drink anymore. Is that the key? :D

Yeah, I managed to beat it while in college. It took about a week (yes, I skipped class), lots of delivery pizza, about a case of beer, very little sleep and leaving the console on the whole time. I figured that there are worse images to burn in to my TV than Sonic. Fortunately, the image did NOT burn into my TV as I had always been told it would if I paused the game for a few hours. For the record, I can't even get close to beating it now. College was a time of magic and mayhem.

I still own, and regularly play, my Atari 2600 and Genesis. I feel that gives me street cred and always bring that up when those young whipper-snappers laugh at my game choices. Hey, I not only own, but have beaten, both Earthworm Jim and Sonic the Hedgehog...yes, the ORIGINAL Sonic with NO save function. I've earned the right to play Pokeman or any Disney or Lego game I choose. It also helps to mumble that it's for my son... ;-)

If anyone is interested (and I haven't had the time to read all Wil's tweets), I am pretty sure the discs are gone. There were two left when I got there, and I know the guy behind me bought one. I just wanted to thank you Wil for making my birthday one to remember. Good luck on the next Jackalope hunt!!

Thanks Wil. It does indeed suck, but I figure everything happens for a reason. At the very least, I don't have to worry about faking illness on Friday in order to be able to attend ALL of ComiCon. :) I've managed to save some bucks for comics and such so my son and I will be ok. Again, spending my 43rd b-day at ECCC with my 17 year old is actually a dream come true. At least I passed on some good genes.

Sigh, I'll be at ECCC and would buy this in an instant except I got laid off about four months ago and don't exactly have the money. Fortunately, I purchased 3 day passes for me and my son the day they went on sale so I'll be there. Friday is my birthday, and I cannot think of anyplace I'd rather be than a ComiCon and ECCC is one of the best! It's a great idea Wil. They will sell out in minutes. Are you sure you can only do ten?
