Re: Run Away

It's very strange to me that a game as conceptually simple as an "infinite runner" could have so much complicated baggage around it that it would make sense to shut it down. I know part of the draw was the continually updating story content (have they continued to do that?) but it seems like they co...

Re: Your favorite SEGA franchises (excluding Sonic)

I guess I should elaborate on that one, then! The thing that I really like about Fantasy Zone is the pacing of it. You can go wherever you like, like Defender, and you can play it however you want but what ends up being the most effective way to do it is to rush in towards the big enemies (bases) an...

Re: Your favorite SEGA franchises (excluding Sonic)

I assume we're excluding other Sonic Team games, too, right? Virtual On (especially Oratorio Tangram) has the special distinction of being the only "fighting" game that I liked enough to get really good at, bought arcade sticks for, etc. I don't like what they've done with the more recent games (the...

Re: Sonic Mega Drive

They got sorta close to this with that Sonic 1 / Genesis Wave or whatever thing before. Which, now that I think of it, was for the 20th anniversary, and.. was that really five years ago? It was the last time I bought a Sonic comic so it seems more recent than that to me.. I think it's very important...

The impression I got was that it isn't a match-3 or anything like that, blocks of one color will disappear when surrounded by blocks of another color on the sides and bottom (but not the top, apparently). Some people are comparing it to Cleopatra Fortune, though I'm not sure that's entirely accurate...

Re: Sonic 2016 Rumours

Ugh, Bugman, why would you even do that? I'm trying to imagine how disappointed I would be if they went so far as to make a new game with spot-on Sonic the Screen Saver-style artwork but the game itself was still hovering around the same quality and style as everything else they've done recently.

Re: Sonic 2016 Rumours

Do we know that Sega made them change it? Like you said you don't disagree with the decision, but it seems reasonable to me that someone at Disney could have easily decided on their own that maybe "slightly more flowing and hair-like" was actually grotesque and horrible.

Re: Sonic 2016 Rumours

What really bugs me is that they made appropriate sprites for everyone else! If it were just a matter of laziness they could have used the mini-Sonic from Sonic CD, who is at least the right size for a Mario game.

I'm pretty sure it's the latter, or an effort to just make Sonic Dash more "relevant" to fans of the show.. basically just another example of how they keep fragmenting their fanbase. It does seem to have a few neat differences though. I do like how the path splits, going up into the area above the c...
