    28:46 The Biolizard was designed after the murals in the Mystic Ruins that depicted Perfect Chaos in Sonic Adventure 1, while Shadow was designed after the murals on Angel Island that depicted Super Sonic fighting Eggman at the end of Sonic 3 and Knuckles. This is why Shadow’s quills resemble that of Super Sonic. May no Sonic fan be confused by this lore ever again.

      ​@@eliasovzki I'm pretty sure the mural is a prophecy. That mural was already there when Gerald found it and was inspired by it to create the "Ultimate Lifeform". At the end of the game, Shadow calls Sonic the Ultimate Lifeform. Sonic even contemplates after Shadows fall as to what it means.
      There are way more parallels to credit the theory. Other Gerald creations (Artificial Chaos and The Biolizard), even the ARK has connections to Angel Island and the Mystic Ruins. Like The Master Emerald shrine or the Snakeslide from Sa1's Mystic Ruins in Cannons Core. If the Biolizard was based on Perfect Chaos, what's Shadow based on? It can't be random given the connections.

      Cosmo here: if she's doing house calls, it's not a big deal as the biggest obstacle for me would be the rinse and drying afterwards. It's their house, probably not the first time.
      I would even say it's easier as the client isn't engaged in a conversation with me and it would be rude to not acknowledge them every 2 minutes. But also, if he has a light rig, it's probably going to process faster since we want that heat. Heat makes it react and lift quicker (which is why you always do your roots last, because of the heat of the scalp.)

      Gerald visiting Angel Island is canon. That's why the Emerald Shrine at the Cannon's Core is a copy-paste of the one on Angel Island. So he might have known about both Perfect Chaos and Sonic, both have murals in Angel Island.
      It's heavily implied that Sonic was the ultimate life form all along and Shadow is merely, a shadow, of it. That's why he could Chaos Control with a fake emerald and survive pushing the ARK away from the atmosphere but Shadow didn't.

    There is actually an answer to the whole "Biolizard -> Shadow" thing. To sum it up, Gerald saw an ancient mural depicting Perfect Chaos fighting Super Sonic, and based the Biolizard on the former. He then went on to make Shadow after realising that the latter was actually the focus of the mural.

      Not only that... Gerald was sick and twisted after they killed maria, remember...? His entire speech when you walk into the chamber its pretty dark lol. He created Bio lizard after researching the mural and the power of the emeralds. It was stated to be a regular lizard but turned into that after experimentation, though it can activate and control the fake chaos emeralds, it just can't activate a super form, because it is incomplete... While shadow can use the fake emeralds to turn super, being fully complete. This is why Biolizard could use chaos control to teleport if you remember. Shadow was the same experiment but added the DNA of Doom, a black arms alien... Which created the perfect being Gerald wanted to use to take over the world. That was originally shadow's purpose was to help Gerald take over the world for revenge sadly, same thing for bio-lizard.

    Here's a fun lost bit from the Battle version on GameCube (which was, in fact, the codebase for the HD version): the Super Hedgehogs were going to be made playable in the revamped 2-player mode, as indicated by a few leftover bits of graphics, text, and even programming! Unique text banners reading "Super Sonic" and "Super Shadow" can be seen alongside the respective models in fully-functioning floating poses if you use a cheat device to make them selectable, though it only loads in the normal Sonic & Shadow text blurbs. Despite this, the Supers do have their own text blurb also stored on the disc:
    "SUPER (SONIC/SHADOW)
    Powered by the
    7 Chaos Emeralds.
    Amazing speed and moves,
    but dies if rings are lost."
    There's also another leftover text block indicating how they would have been unlocked:
    "Congratulations!
    You've cleared Green Hill with Rank A. Strongest characters are now available to use in Sonic and Shadow 2P versus mode."
    Unfortunately, though, the actual character coding doesn't seem to exist, and so actually selecting them will just cause the game to use normal Sonic and/or Shadow.

    I remember playing this game as a kid, and I discovered the super bounce on my own, but I also discovered that with a chao if you drop the stat increasing items in front of them instead of running into them they give the item back and you can use it again so I used that to get chaos stats really fast

  • @Patches4000
    @Patches4000 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +3

    I played this game all the time as a kid especially with my friend. He was always so into the Chao garden and I was into the missions. In high school I dedicated myself to getting 180 emblems. It was tough but I remember feeling myself improve and actually learning how to get better, thinking about the levels more logically and trying new approaches until I got the A’s I needed. It’s funny looking back on it because I had so many people tell me that video games were a waste of time, but this game taught me how to learn in new ways and think about problems and solutions more critically. Even though getting 180 emblems wasn’t going to get me A’s in school or get me into college, it felt so good to complete this game in its entirety and prove to myself I could accomplish something that most people didn’t even attempt to do.
    Thanks for making this video, you brought back a lot of memories.
    P.S. if you’d like another challenge from the GameCube era, I’d highly recommend trying to 100% F-Zero GX. That game was criminally underrated in general and the challenges in it pushed me to my absolute limit, even beyond this game.

    Ahhh the game that gave us everyone's favorite iconic dark furred brooding hedgehog. I never got to play this game when it came out. I was introduced to the Sonic franchise via Sonic X. And that show absolutely is why Shadow is my favorite character of all time. When Shadow is done well, he's essentially quiet kid reality. Mutli-faceted, has a small friend group, deeply cares but tries not to show it for fear of losing people, he's complex and collected, calculating. Nuanced.
    When Shadow is handled disrespectfully he's the embodiment of every single "quiet kid" stereotype meme. Shadow is my favorite not because of a lot of typical reasons. Shadow was created to be perfect. He's immortal, he is the pinnacle of human ingenuity. And yet, because he was created by humanity, he inevitably has flaws. And Shadow the Hedgehog is potentially one of the most flawed Sonic characters out there. And because of those flaws, it makes for a very fascinating character. Shadow is so much more than just an edgelord. And my God it felt great to see him back to form in Prime.

    Congrats on clearing this game out!
    Sonic Adventure 2 really is a difficult nut to crack. On the one hand, most of the speed stages are fun, the Chao Garden is an enjoyable little side project that one can cheese through a placement glitch of animals, and that final boss with Live and Learn blasting over it all is just a wonderful moment. On the other hand, the majority of the game is buggy and messy, and the route to completion rather than simply beating the game can be a thoroughly unfun experience. It's highly praised, but often with a row of asterisks after it. It's divisive, and I couldn't in good faith give it a positive overall clear due to the negatives of the game outweighing the positives, but those positives are so good that it's often easy to overlook the negatives. Those high points are just that good.
    Also, unless glitching or cheating, obtaining ring perfects in many of the stages is impossible in specific versions, due to several rings being out of bounds in unobtainable places. This is nothing new for Sonic games, so you could say it's tradition, or you could say it's the devs not going back to clean up stages from prototype layouts.

    28:47 the answer to how gerald went from the bio-lizard to shadow is in sonic 3, in the knuckles boss fight we see a mural of super sonic fighting perfect chaos. we know gerald studied angel island since the space colony arc uses the chaos emeralds and the biolizard arena is a recreation of the master emerald shrine. Gerald first tried to design his ultimate lifeform after perfect chaos which is why there are artificial chaos on space colony arc and how he made the biolizard. the biolizard was a failure so with extra help from the black arms geralds next design was based of super sonic and was a success, this is also why shadow has natural chaos powers and his spines curve upwards like super sonics.
    TLDR, biolizard was based on perfect chaos, Shadow was based on super sonic.

    I love it when Mr. Rad puts on a suit for an ad read. Really trying to make it feel more professional. It was an especially nice touch to where colors that matched his bottled lol

    The way you narrate these videos makes them extra special. This was the first game I ever beat, but I never 100% it. Congratulations and thank you from my kid self.

    I remember I was so close to 100% this game when I was really young. It wasn't until the HD port that came out in 2012 that I was able to finally complete it! I was a senior in high school at the time, and I still have my 100% profile on my PS3 to this day.

    I did this exact thing last year. I never 100% the game and saw the secret level so I decided to play through it again. After months of playing (largely due to the Chaos) I finally completed it! Felt like a major objective in my life was complete.

    I remember grinding all of this back in the summer of 2003 after having the game for a year or so when I was 15. I completed Tails, Rouge and Knuckles first. I will never forget the struggle of getting the A for the 4th mission of Radical Highway. It was awful. We didn't have online tutorials to see speed runs and skips, and so a lot of it was using a magazine guide and a lot of effort. It was so rewarding to complete, but yeah, the Green Hill Zone is a little anticlimactic though lol. It was such a trip down memory lane watching you go through this. It's been 20 years since I did this.
