Shadow was an antagonist until SA2's last story. Kinda.

What if the Special Stages were designed like NiGHTS Into Dreams?

Insta-shield isn't useless in 3D, it can still give you Just-Frame invincibility to pass through certain attacks unharmed with precision and skill. Of course, it's still a master-level skill like that, but it's handy.

[up]There's a point at which it becomes too Difficult but Awesome, since that would require a lot of depth perception and fiddling with the camera.
Please help out our The History Of Video Games page.
I think the insta shield was one of Sonic's least impressive unique moves, it was the hardest to perfect, especially for little kids, with lots of frustration potential of missing the mark and getting yourself hit. It also had a bit too much potential for glitching if used on the wrong object.

Others like like wall jump or homing attack can backfire at times, but not with the same certain disaster as insta shield and were also a lot more useful for maneuvering around and giving the opportunity for Sonic to find new pathways and items like the others can.

Just awesome like that
I was never able to get the insta-shield to work, not as a kid and still not now. I always thought it was just "that weird move that makes a swirly thing appear for a second while you hear a really indescribably bland sound effect."

[up]It's all about timing. You use it just before you run into an enemy.

I never saw a difference between that and just jumping at them.

...Are we thinking of the same thing here? Sonic Advance 2, the move you do when you press A after jumping?

Insta shield was very useful in Sonic 3, as it let you hit enemies you otherwise were just out of reach to do. Very useful on bosses. In the advance games it's not nearly as good.

Advance 2's insta-shield is iffier to time correctly.

I thought it was mostly useful for bosses, but it was pretty good at avoiding some attacks by badnicks. It's tricky to use at first, but if you can time it right it becomes a minor Game Breaker.

So is there any way (besides imageshack) to resize images at avatar size???

@Stamina: Nope.

[up] Paint, Power Point, Photoshop, pretty much any image-related program in existence...

Sonic seems to be common crossover material. Super Mario Bros. Z was awesome but Alvin cancelled it due to lack of progress, Sonichu is in hiatus because Christian Weston Chandler can't be arsed to update it. Are there any other Sonic crossovers worth discussing?

Sonic had that crossover comic with Mega Man.

I've personally always wanted to see Sonic/Kirby crossover games, but I know that would never happen since the two series have no relation whatsoever aside from both being sidescrolling platformers and having Smash representation.

Depends: what do you consider worthy of discussion? Do fanworks count under such a criteria?

Anything with a air of coolness;basically not Sonichu or any Super Mario Bros. Z ripoff.

How about those Sonic/Sabrina the Teenage Witch crossover comics then?
