On close inspection, Sonic is running/ unicycling backwards. Moonrunner? :P

Re: OH YES Sonic Mania

I hope they give you the option of changing the sprites though. I've always preferred the sonic 3 sprite for sonic but it'd be a nice extra or secret to be able to switch to the sonic advance sprite. I'm also a bit annoyed about the whole sprite issue, it's not as bad as the jump back from Rockman ...

In the Codes section of the Sonic 3 and Sonic & Knuckles museum pages, the level select code description for the C button reads "pixel-by-pixel movement" instead of "frame-by-frame movement" like the Sonic 1 page. Also I'm pretty sure it's possible to do this in Sonic 2, but there's no mention of th...

I'd kinda like it if, after defeating all the Deadly Six, it was revealed they (somehow) were actually good guys all along and Eggman fooled Sonic into taking them down, just like he did with Knuckles before. Then everyone teams up to defeat Eggman and stuff.

And lol sorry Jingles.

Sounds a bit too complicated for a Sonic game's controls, but if that's what it takes for people to not lose control... Oh yes. How I've grown to despise checkerboard patterns. I never said that. They're reusing the ENTIRE aesthetics, not just the checkerboard patterns. Don't know about you, but I d...

Maybe the "Lost World" title is supposed to be sort of ironic? Most of the Galaxy-ey parts look derivative from X-treme, so I can totally get past that. New bad guys don't do anything to me, neither like nor dislike 'em. I must say that I'm SICK of Green Hill Zone aesthetics by now, give it a rest S...

Man, this runs Street Fighter IV... hell, ALL recent Capcom/ Dimps fighters through the mud.

Currently slated for release in Japanese arcades only, runs on Sega's RingEdge 2 board.

Man... it's much uglier than the regular Saturn (which I still consider the best, most badass-looking home videogame system ever created). In fact, it kinda looks like a cheaper model.

Weren't the pokemon black and white animations done in this awkward puppet-like style? That was god awful looking. That's more similar to a blend of Flash and "limb-by-limb" pixel animation, like the scaling in Chaotix, it does look quite bad. I'm talking traditional cel animation (particularly flu...

I would've liked it better if it featured super-high quality 2D animation for battles, I love cartoon-like 2D when done well like in Wario Land Shake. Then again, pokémon designs are quite simple so it's also a good match for polygonal models. I'll be getting a 3DS XL shortly, and already running ou...

The onboard flash is going to be much faster than any external hard drive option, though. Are there external SSD units? Seems like those are a whole lot like flash memory. The internal ones seem to improve PlayStation 3 performance dramatically in some cases: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digit...

Does the game look any nicer than its PS2 release? From the teaser-thing, it looks pretty much identical to me, only the HUD is a bit smaller. Maybe they made some work on Puffy's model? I do hope they fix the (probably mandatory now) 16:9 format so that it actually shows more stuff than the origin...

You probably already checked it, but in ME2 the Back button was used for putting down your weapons.

Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition - Focus attacks are a poor replacement for just parrying, especially while in the air (seriously, there's almost no point in jumping in this game at all).
