Re: Sonic Unleashed?

And it didn't feel short but it felt incredibly shallow. I seriously wonder if it's less about actual time and value, it's about feeling "done". That in order to not feel ripped off, you need to start to be feeling a little sick of the game. You can become sick of any game. It's in how you get sick...

Re: Sonic Unleashed?

I think what he meant was that someone who signed up to review Wii games probably gets floored by vibrant Sonic-y worlds and is used to controls that can be spotty because of the mediocre input method. You get a reviewer used to handing out perfect scores to Halo and Call of Duty, a game containing ...

Re: Post your artwork (56k warning)

Clever. I like. Were you thinking 2D or 3D? 2D. I don't think the block-pushing would work well in three dimensions. I do find it curious that this was such a common thing in the 2D games and yet they haven't tried to incorporate it at all. I'm thinking that if you pick things up and carry them wit...

Re: Sonic Unleashed?

As a side note, I've just hit the part of the game were you need to start actively searching for medals if you don't want to get stuck. It kind of sucks! I don't mind doing that in the nighttime stages since it's sort of lumbering anyway, but how much effort do you need to put into the daytime stag...

I was under the impression that the pro reviewers weren't the only ones finding fault in the Werehog segments. Silly me! I was under the impression metacritic doesn't factor in scores/quotes from the general public? So if we all adamantly like a game critics overall spit upon, it'll be recognized f...

Re: Cooking Mama kills animals

Books and movies are both stories, but there are so many differences I believe that if you take a book and use it as a script, your movie will suck. Same reason why novelizations of movies pretty much just read like your friend telling you about the film they saw last night.

Re: Obama now President of USA.

But seriously, "we want to get married" sounds petty and stupid compared to "we want this list of rights that would shock you to know that we are denied." Start out with that list and I think you'll save a lot of trouble! Is there a full list located somewhere? Or at least a good summary? Because t...

Re: Sonic Unleashed?

The title line was the hardest part to swallow, honestly. For a six-minute ballad, it's a pretty tight and well-produced track, if not lyrically vapid and dumb. Having suffered far cornier (We Can) and far more excruciatingly boring and meandering to pad it to the six minute marker (My Destiny, What...

Harsh as it sounds, I agree with Del on that one. I've often wondered how many people simply hate homosexuals but can't express that viewpoint without (rightfully) catching flack for their bigotry, but have found that opposing gay marriage is a perfectly politically correct platform, so they just cl...

Re: Sonic Unleashed?

Dude, it's a game. Your reaction should be more on par with "this game I was looking forward to probably isn't going to meet the expectations I irresponsibly jacked up for myself". Less "My best friend hired a hit man to murder my fiancé and made me watch".

Re: Sonic Unleashed?

IGN's reviewed the Wii version. They liked it. These stages, which regularly shift from 2D to 3D perspectives, are executed so well, in fact, that I feel they not only successfully capture the frantic pace and addictive play mechanics of the long-gone classics, but surpass them. In other words, take...

Re: Sonic Unleashed?

I think blaming it entirely on the graphics is a tad excessive. I think the fact its controller is limited in its actual buttons is also a turn-off. I know you can use the GameCube controller, but there's something kinda off about releasing a game that has to run on some kind of last-gen hardware.
