Re: Sonic Mania - Game content discussion thread (with spoilers)

I actually didn't hate Advance 3's hub worlds - or any of it, really! In something like Adventure or Unleashed, you're just trotting about talking to people - it feels a bit off. Advance 3 had you still running and jumping about in a familiar style, and had a few little bits and pieces to find or un...

Re: Super NiGHTS Odyssey

I had a big dumb grin on my face the whole way through the initial trailer. It took me wayyy back in time, man! Suddenly, I'm standing in the middle of Sega World at the Trocadero again, playing NiGHTS for the first time, backlit with neon and pumping techno. I'm all over this like a seagull on chip...

Maybe they could switch things up a bit by starting with Chemical Plant first this time, followed by Green Hill. Hire me, Sega!

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

Good points, well made. I think for me, the palette swaps at least alleviated some of the gripes I had about returning zones, and made the Act 2 remixes feel a bit more original (even if superficially). I also rated the Special Stages - easily my favourite of the series so far - even if the Encore M...

Re: ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ Movie Sequel in the Works

I've got pretty high hopes for a sequel. Aside from the end credits scenes (seriously, can we talk about those?!) I think that the success of the first one, especially following the very public reaction to the redesign, shows that you don't have to veer too far off track to adapt a property like thi...

Re: Streets of Rage 4

Picked this up recently to play with the missus, and we've had a great time so far. You guys hit the nail on the head regarding the difficulty - sometimes this game makes me feel like a total chump! More so than usual, anyway. One standout issue for me is actually the game length... maybe I'm just m...

Re: Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX

Is there a reason they're remaking Miracle World specifically? I appreciate that (based on purely anecdotal evidence) it's the most popular instalment by a country mile, but surely the game will already be playable on most platforms where this is being released ? It certainly is on Switch and PC th...

Hello, The GHZ. Just popping in to let everyone know what I thought of the Sonic the Hedgehog real life action movie. I'm sure you were all dying to know, right? Well, I liked it! So there we are. And while I'm here: that Sonic Mania was a bit of alright, wasn't it? Also - slightly off topic - sorry...

Re: Journey

Dear Esther is pretentious, meandering and devoid of motivation. See, I can use $5 words too!

I know I'm just being argumentative now, but I'm baffled that you could ever consider Ico to be vapid, or SotC to be kitschy (seriously?). Also, you started it.

Re: Mice and linguistic ruin

You are all crazy! Land of Illusion is clearly the superior title (IN MY OPINION LOL), although I did play my fair share of Castle as a kid - the Master System version, with the candy stage replacing the ancient ruins-type stage (but retaining that badass music). I had fond memories of World's co-op...

Re: Sonic 4 Episode 2 Not to Come until 2012

...did you watch the same footage that I did? Sonic seems a lot looser, accelerates decently, and (notably) his spin attack speed is affected by how fast he is moving. It's pretty difficult to tell without a hands on, but it didn't look at unnatural and stiff as Episode I. On a related note; in all ...
