Re: New Game by Prope: Sky Knight Rodea (Wii/3DS)

This comparison video really drives that point home. The Wii U version looks pretty darn drab, and he's zooming about in straight lines rather than those neat dynamic arches, with a long tension-killing float downward to boot(to accommodate picking your point on the gamepad?). Might be more to the ...

Re: Sega Sonic Arcade sighting in Chicago

This calls for a GHZ road trip! It's interesting watching emulated footage of it now, and seeing how in proper 3D with more levels and whatnot this might effectively be a Sonic version of Mario 3D word, with it being open to 3 players and all. Maybe they should do that! Even using Ray and Mighty, an...

Re: coming to theaters near you

Does anything besides Sonic in this list have the brand recognition to pull this off? I think my non-gaming friends have maaaaaybe heard of Virtua Fighter and Crazy Taxi. That said, maybe we should have a series of The Fast and the Furious style Outrun movies. It'd be just like it, but it all takes ...

Re: Great new Sonic game!!!

Rayman Jungle Run and Sonic 2 avaliable for free today if you have an Android device or a Kindle Fire, for those curious to give it a go. Also, Cut the Rope, which I think is an excellent little puzzle game. Ought to dust off that touch screen game topic and add some of my picks. Also, I didn't rea...

Re: New Sonic game for 2015

Not that I have found, but I did manage to see the first two shorts. It's fine. Less couch sitting than I had thought, and the gags were all right. I don't hate it or love it, but I can see kids enjoying it and that's pretty much what it's going for. I assume the games explain backstory and all? Non...

Yeah, I liked that line too. I think Pollock plays a great Eggman, and I'm glad they kept him from the Sonic X gang. Hope he gets lots of good material to work with.

Re: New Sonic game for 2015

Eh, I think it's just that tech is a lot better now. A lot of the CG show staples are still there; bland backgrounds, lack of weight to movements, iffy lip sync, underplayed expressions, and the fact it seems all of the characters just stand completely still between lines(no breathing). The colors l...

Re: Sonic 1 and 2 getting Sonic CD style remakes

The whole music rights thing sounds pretty bull to me. This Jetzons track was unreleased, and used the theme from it for Ice Cap Zone 12 YEARS after they recorded that, under the direction of Buxer. Without some sort of agreement, I'd say that he basically gave it away to SEGA. Same goes for Jackson...

Re: Sonic 1 and 2 getting Sonic CD style remakes

Did the ESRB drop this free rating for digital games policy? If not, I'm not sure what Sega's issue is. Maybe it just conflicts with the Sonic/Alien/Football Manager initiative. That said, are retro games selling okay in general? I get the impression that a lot of people just aren't willing to part...

It does make me think a bit of how you might see merchandise for comic book Spider-Man, movie Spider-Man, and cartoon Spider-Man all next to each other. I think kids are usually able to tell the difference... but maybe don't care as long as its a version of the cool character they like? But yeah, ev...

Re: We few, we happy, we Smash Bros. in arms.

I don't mind Zero Suit Samus as a character, as having Samus without the suit should make for an agile fighter who normally has to work with a lot of weight resistance. It's cool to see that she could hold her own without the power suit, but the high heels go against that idea. Too many gadgets and ...

Re: Sonic Lost World - Nintendo Exclusive

I really liked Colors, but I'd say those tank-like controls they kept from Unleashed are pretty tough for most people to get into. I mean there were definite improvements, but it was still odd. At slow speeds, I was wishing that Sonic felt more like the Werehog. There was a certain weight and degree...

On the Google Play store it's really insane how wonky the ratings get for a game that charges any more than free, and god forbid more than a dollar. I guess folks love micro transactions.

The 2DS is a really bizarre move, but I guess if the majority of the public can deal with tons of Android devices with different options, why shouldn't they be able to handle this? The design reminds me of those Leapfrog game devices which are quite thick, sturdy, and kid friendly. It might also dou...

Re: Awaiting your orders, miss Jade

Ancel has been pretty ballsy too, what with the open protest of Rayman Legends' delayed release, so I'm extra surprised they let him stay on. I guess as he's been knighted and such it'd create way too much bad press for Ubisoft to do so(at least in Europe, where he seems to be more well known.) Stil...

Re: Sonic Lost World - Nintendo Exclusive

I agree! Egg Dragoon was probably my favorite boss fight in the game. It had some good character dialogue too, making the Sonic Heroes-started "everybody chatters all day every day" deal work for it with Eggman's contempt for Sonic shining through. Generations' rendition was awful. It was like the w...

Ah, so pretty much the same feelings I had playing the demo sometime back.
