SEGA Office Pranks: Metal Sonic in Jell-O

Ah, vacations. Those rare moments each year when we get to escape from all the meetings, deadlines, and paperwork – a time to finally kick back a bit, enjoying some time to relax, hang out with friends and family, and live a little.

You can imagine my surprise, then, when I returned from one such vacation only to find that my limited edition Metal Sonic toy was missing from my desk. “That’s odd,” I thought, “I wonder where it went?

Meanwhile, looking at me over his shoulder with an evil smirk, Fabien knew all too well what had become of my beloved Metal Sonic.

I came in this morning to find a bowl of Jell-O sitting in our kitchenette. What happened next? The video says it all.

Well played, sir Fabiun. Well played.

Be sure to stay tuned for Part II of the Aaron V Fabian Office Prank Battle, where I will return this prank with interest.

And cupcakes.


Alpha Protocol is Now Available!

Alpha Protocol

At long last, Alpha Protocol is now available for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. If you haven’t followed the blog or know little about the game, here’s a bit of background… the game follows Michael Thorton, a rookie spy tasked with tracking down a group of fanatical terrorists behind a tragic missile attack on a passenger jetliner. Soon though, Thorton discovers there are much more devious forces at work, and before he realizes it, he is pulled into a dark and dangerous conspiracy orchestrated by ruthless, corrupt businessmen determined to control the fate of the world. He must use every tool and skill at his disposal to stop a cartel hell bent on shaping the world as they see fit.

Your Weapon is Choice – Create Your Own Adventure

Create and customize your game to your liking, playing up relationships with reputation, both through direct actions and in conversation to earn allies and spark rivalries. Play stealthy, aggressively with guns blazing, or creatively with gadgets or a mix of any of the skills available at your disposal – there is no ‘right’ way to play, the game is completely up to you and Alpha Protocol will reward you at every step. Depending on how you play through your first go, you’ll want to revisit the game and see the alternative sides to some of the more major choices. Alpha Protocol is one of the better RPGs I’ve had a chance to play and I’m looking forward to the player reactions once they get their hands on it.
