Re: To 360 or to PS3?

I've actually seen the red ring once on my 360 - right after I got it shipped to me here, I plugged it in and the first few times I powered on, I got the red ring, and I thought it was all over. But then I hit the button one last desperate time and it worked like normal and I haven't had any proble...

Oh, it's written. Word is they want all original XBox games out of their stores by next month or so. I can imagine the rest of last gen will follow soon enough.

Re: To 360 or to PS3?

There's Game Crazy which I've been told is good although a little out of my way personally... I'm more apt to buy games from the Best Buy across the way from my local GameStop, just because GameStop isn't a store. It's an overglorified garage sale. I couldn't get a controller there that wasn't used....

Re: merry xmas amirite??

While the quality of the acting was your usual cringe setter, I thought the young-boy voice went well with the whole Peter Pan motif that I always thought was an undercurrent.

Re: Sonic Unleashed?

Exactly. I'll never understand why they always feel the need to give the stuff we all accepted back in the Genesis years as normal some bizarre origin story so it can "make sense", while they come up with plots for these games that don't know the meaning of "sense".

Son of a bitch. Wasn't it already said that Naka was responsible for Oshima jumping ship as well? Was that just conjecture, or do we have a snide interview remark to back that up?

Re: Ivo

Sonic explicitly treats GHZ in Chronicles like it's familiar territory. Assuming the zones in Battle, G Sonic and Sonic 1 are different, it's likely he's referring to the latter. Perhaps Central City is actually Spring Yard? Nah, I'm not giving them that benefit of the doubt. At this point, given U...

Re: The sonic game no one wanted is back...maybe...

Shuffle is bullshit (even more so) without the VMU screen. I honestly can't believe a little LCD screen in the controller didn't catch on even with the Dreamcast doing as mediocre as it did.

Re: The biggest news in this forum's history

A lot of the older folks I know (and Bob Dylan) sound a lot raspier and/or feeble, but I wonder if that's a byproduct of them being adults in a time when smoking was supposedly harmless.

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

I admire this maximizing grit and machoness to the point of kitsch, but coupled with the lack of color (even gray) means it has nothing to keep itself from getting boring but new and exciting ways to gruesomely kill people. One of the other trailers took place in a subway station, where Jack offed o...

Re: Sonic and the Quest for Phallic Compensation

I really need to see some different levels before I can further an opinion on this one. Right now it's just Sonic and a sword, and quite frankly, that neither makes me cower in fear nor jump for joy. Considering how amazing Unleashed looked (even the Wii version), there's really no excuse for this g...

That sounds delightfully absurd. However, I'm either misinformed or the KH series takes itself wayyy too seriously.

After the disaster that was Sonic Advance 2, I'm glad they've finally found a way to make high speed boss fights that are fun to play. I wanted to proclaim the concept of speed bosses fundamentally flawed after SAdv2, but I can't forget how utterly bitchin' Mushroom Hill's Act 2 boss was. I'm happy...

Re: Turkey Day, motherfucker.

That happens to me with the sandwich. Difference is, I get the same sandwich every time for simplicity's sake (turkey & swiss), so if I suddenly get roast beef instead, I won't taste the roast beef so much as the roast beef's failure to be turkey. It's kinda weird. That also happens with restaurant/...

What are you saying? Video game prices have only recently had their first increase from $50 this generation to $60, and that's only with certain games on certain consoles (and during the 16-bit days some of those cart games were going well above $50 anyway, $60 or even $70 pricetags weren't uncommo...

Re: Return to thw world of Disney and losing your memory.

I never bothered with this series. I'm sorry. But I can't get my head around the premise. Why Square, and why Disney? It's a crossover, yes, but the question with any crossover is... why? What about these two worlds makes sense when combined? Sure, both are popular ... but that's the thing. If their...

Re: When does Sonic CD end?

Little Planet is obviously a planet with no international date line. As you run further around it, you keep crossing time zones without getting the date reset. This is why Sonic can go back through time simply by running fast. He's doing laps. The actual time you see depends on the angle the light r...

Re: Sonic Unleashed?

Here's the other issue: Sonic's 1 & 2 existed before saving your game did. You didn't want the game to last more than 10 hours. Because even if you could pause it for dinner, you'd be trying to finish it as your parents called you for bed. Unless you wanted to try to leave the thing paused all night...
