Weekly Screenshots Moved to ComboVid

September 9th, 2010 1 comment

Good news, everyone! In a continuing effort to revert Sonic Hurricane back to a massive text file read only by the hardest of the core, i’m moving my sole source of pictures to ComboVid!

That’s right, the Weekly Screenshot series has been relocated to ComboVid.com, where it will resume its regular update schedule every Thursday. As always, each snapshot will play host to a caption contest for all sorts of uncommon prizes.

And now when you visit Sonic Hurricane, you can rest assured that you’ll be greeted with a steady wall of exquisite, uninterrupted text. Isn’t that exciting?

Here’s a leftover Cyberbots screenshot i’ve been meaning to post. It’s actually based on a much older pair of screenshots from 2008. Hopefully the resemblance is clear enough.
