Re: Streets of Rage 4

Having played this game now, it feels...really hard. Even on Normal it's hard not to lose lives, and everything feels really zoomed in. It's definitely tailor made for multiplayer; I had more fun playing with two people than alone. I also turned on the "classic" soundtrack option right away, because...

Re: Son of Sanshiro

I couldn't even make it past the first boss of Sonic Forces. It was one of the worst boss fights I've ever seen in a Sonic game, and after literally a half hour of struggling I just gave up.

Re: Mario and Sonic at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics

The weird part of the retro mode is that the Sonic animals like Picky and such have been slightly re-done to look more like NES sprites, but Sonic and Eggman are not.

I can only assume Nintendo mandate is why they don't use the Super Mario World / All-Stars sprites for the Mario cast.

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

The Sonic model does look a bit better in motion, but not a fan of his new voice. He sounds far too old. And what was up with him growing rings to use as portals at 1:59? Jim Carrey looks okay. Judging from the end of the trailer, which shows him in a desert, I guess he'll slowly look more and more ...

Not really. Mega Man being in the game didn't prevent Ryu from being in Smash 4 as DLC.

Sega apparently is delaying the game to May: https://twitter.com/sonic_hedgehog/stat ... 4382219264

Considering how quiet they've been about the game the past few months, I'm not surprised at all.

The Zelda franchise does that a lot, too. At least the core console games do (sans Zelda II, where he's dead). Sooner or later it's revealed than Ganon is involved somewhere in the game's plot.

Re: Everybody Super Sonic failing... (Team Sonic Racing)

When was the last time a major character in a Sonic game had their name changed for the international releases? I can't think of any since the jump to 3-D, at least.

I mean, even Omochao - whose name derives from the Japanese word omocha (meaning toy) - didn't have his name changed.

I'm still waiting on whatever actor they'll cast as Sonic. That would make or break it to me more than any live-action stuff would. It looks like I was right that he'd be recast. I'm not really familiar with Ben Schwartz. I just hope he doesn't ham it up, or try to sound like Roger Craig Smith. I'd...

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

I suspect Illumination's Mario movie will be colorful and look likely and fairly accurate to the current CG art, most likely due to Nintendo mandates that everyone has to be on-model now. But I don't expect it to be much more than painless at best. I'm still waiting on whatever actor they'll cast as...

You can't even use debug mode outside of a No Save file in Mania. Spawning Special Stage rings through the debug just gives you 50 rings.

There isn't a way to just play Special Stages through a menu, as far as I know. Spawning Special Stage rings via debug only gives you 50 rings.
