Re: Science has finally answered the eternal question

I don't think we're just talking about pieces of artwork, I think we're talking about the characters conceived for (eventual) commercial purposes.

Re: Science has finally answered the eternal question

You're just as cold as the "legal" rights person, don't you get it? if you create a character you are the creator therefore no one knows the character as much as you do! even if someone buys your character, its still YOUR character! Technically, if it's work for hire, that's not case. If you get in...

Re: The world is black and white, and also very mad.

And I know who developed it, but did Japanese people do the English voices or did SEGA? I don't know about the rest of the cast, but the commentators are Greg Proops (Whose Line) and John DiMaggio (Futurama), so probably outside of the regular voice talent pool. I'm not surprised they're the highli...

Re: Sonic and the Quest for Phallic Compensation

What do you think? Sympathy, apathy, burn at the stake? I certainly wouldn't want that poor bastard's job. Go into this project with a knowingly mismatched staff and time budget (as per normal) and the requirement of making the game's premise un-Sonic-y by definition. I'll be honest, though, if he ...

Re: Sonic and the Quest for Phallic Compensation

The presentation is glorious, but even it doesn't feel appropriate for a Sonic game. Gameplay looks closer to Heroes with a dash of Werehog than an off-rails Secret Rings to me. Half-ass combat and QTE, platforming existing only to get Sonic from one to the next. For years, people barked to get Soni...

Re: Sonic and the Quest for Phallic Compensation

Camera or whatever flaw it may be, it all boils down to the same principle: Is it worth the effort? How hard is it to adapt to the flaw, and if you do, how much fun will you have? It's hard to argue that SA1 (and most of the games around that smoothing-out-the-3D-lumps era) didn't have their fair sh...

Re: Loud obnoxius critic reviews Sonic cartoons

I heard Biolizard's first form was meant to be fought with Knuckles. I have no irrefutable evidence to back this claim, but it seems plausible. I have no idea what stage that would have been planned for, but it seems like beating that thing without a homing attack would be comparable to trying to c...

Why is it you run into more tranny cross-dressers in the Final Fantasy fanbase than anywhere else? It is just so random and unexpected considering the franchise's content, right?

Re: More Mario & Sonic at the Olympics?

Remembering that the original was the first game to include both Mario and Sonic after years of speculation, this one is going to look like a windfall as far as the anticipation goes. And as far as everything else goes, first game was awful, I don't forecast improvements of any kind.

Re: Sonic Unleashed?

Unless you're playing Sonic 2 or S3&K as Tails, in which case he doesn't yell "SONIC!" every time he dies. Not that the games had voice acting back then, but that's exactly my point. He was much more tolerable when he was silent, not to mention you could play as him for the entire game and take on ...

Re: Sega's 12-inch pianist.

The question is if he'd want to. There's always a chance that it was Sega's influence that drove him away from the series, but it would appear that he's running from what his brainchild has grown into. Also, has Prope unveiled anything that doesn't sport a flagrant lack of quality control? I'd be ha...
