What happens when you plug in 13 Sonic & Knuckles cartridges?


Why must we play God?

Brandon Sheffield, Gamasutra editor and director of Necrosoft Games, took to Vine last night to show the world what exactly happens when 13 Sonic & Knuckles cartridges are plugged into one another in a Human Centipede-esque disaster.

For those out of the loop, the Sega Genesis game Sonic & Knuckles featured the interesting addition of a second cartridge slot allowing you to plug the previous Sonic the Hedgehog games into it, which allow you to play as Knuckles.

So what happens when 13 of these games are stacked on top of each other? We’ve embedded the Vine videos below so you can see just how deep the rabbit hole goes.

    Whoever thought it was a good idea to embed 30+ auto-playing videos into a single page was a damned moron, thanks for frying my computer. Took me 10 minutes to get it un-locked up. And whoever thought that using 30+ 10-second Vine clips was a great way to document this is an imbecile. Just take one video and put it on YouTube, christ.

      stv that’s a real shame, most of us don’t use piles of shit for computers anymore so we don’t have these problems.
