Re: Streets of Rage 4

Difficulty really pins down my big issue with the game, which is that it feels like in order to do well you have to exploit the game's systems in ways that don't really feel intentionally designed. For instance, the guys with shields can be real tough to figure out initially, and some characters (li...

Re: Interesting Sonic Team interviews

Another set from Shmuplations: http://shmuplations.com/sonicteam/

These ones cover some interesting stuff on Naka and Ohshima's early days at Sega, and odds and ends on the development of all three 16-bit Sonic games.

Re: Streets of Rage 4

I'm really iffy on this until more is known about it. It's weird that they're working so hard to ape the look of SoR2 in terms of the characters, but even if Yuso Koshiro is involved, the music in the trailer does absolutely nothing to evoke the feeling of it. I really liked Monster World but part o...

Re: James Marsden taking lead role in Sonic the Hedgehog mov

Little rumors about this were circulating all through the 90s, I'm sure I recall lots of magazine articles with various Sega reps saying that a movie was in the works, but never with any details like that. It's cool to see something more about it, except of course that it sounds awful. Can't say how...

Not to be that guy, but totally being that guy--that's the sound of those curvy light transports in the S&K Death Egg Zone.

Well, this is just one location and it's a town that people actually live in, they can only disrupt that for so long. I don't know what's standard for these kinds of things but it makes sense to me that they'd quickly gather all the footage they can as quickly as they can and shoot the rest in studi...

Re: Interesting Sonic Team interviews

A whole mess of Sonic interviews just dropped at Shmuplations. I haven't read all of them yet, but there's definitely a few odds and ends I haven't heard before, including a snipe from Naka at Sonic Underground and the US Mario cartoons!

I sent them an email letting them know my interest, like if they could offer it as a (limited) add-on, like they have for some of the other figures (so, you could "add on" Metal Sonic or Vector...
