Sonic has always had a insatiable love for Chili Dogs, but what happens when he finally lets himself go and becomes an obese monster on a scale comparable to Jabba the Hutt? Well, users Captain Bozo and Ranger unveiled their heavyweight beast on the Sonic Retro forums. Aptly named, ‘Sonic 2 XL’, it’s terrifying in it’s brilliance. The hack renders all of the rings in the sequel to the lauded original into onion rings, ripe for delicious, heart-clogging consumption.
And if that wasn’t bad enough, consume too many rings and you become as mobile as a broken-down hippopotamus. But as with any weight gain, it doesn’t happen immediately. The hack allows for the change to occur over a course of time, which is completely dependent on how fast you consume those rings. Included is a video from youtube, which shows the fastest blue hedgehog known to man quickly going downhill into a slump that would make any out of work actor proud.
The hack for the game can be found here. You should check it out if for no other reason than I found it more astonishingly grim than when my Wii Fit told me I had a few pounds to lose.
