Re: Sega release trailer for.. Sonic CD? What?

I would have bought a port or a remake, but I'm not touching a hack. I was actually coming to terms with the alternate physics if they were just optional, but now Tails? There's merit in the Japanese's aversion towards hacks on the basis that these could be considered an insult to the original deve...

Re: Sega release trailer for.. Sonic CD? What?

A couple of people at Retro assured me that this version will have your choice of both CD's original physics or the Genesis trilogy physics. I should hope the latter is optional, What, you mean, like you just said you were told they would be? I should also hope you didn't stop reading the post at t...

Re: Sonic Generations

And they've got the Sonic model all wrong. He's too cute and dumpy, too mid-90s CG. If they're going for a classic look, I'd have preferred Sega to model it off the Sonic 2 title screen, not the Sonic 3 one. (Did anyone like that Sonic 3 title screen?) It annoys and depresses me that the fans are b...

Re: Sonic Generations

I found direct rips of all the music from the leaks and listened to most of it. It's, um... random. Almost entirely remixes of course, but the quality is all over the place. It'll swing from Fat Sonic having great music to Skinny having a crappy flat-sounding version (Sky Sanctuary) and vice-versa (...

Re: Sonic Generations

There can't possibly be a big enough public demand to warrant including it, I've wondered about this myself, and people still keep telling me that the game turned a profit in the end - probably not much of one, but a profit nonetheless. I haven't bothered to ask what the sources are on those sales ...

Or people are thinking too much into it. Either way, anything bundled with a Monster Hunter release is going to be a success in japan if nowhere else.

Re: Sonic 4 Episode 2 Not to Come until 2012

On the old museum page, Gibbon described the game as (more or less) a pile of bizzare ideas that don't get along very well. Very little about Chaotix seems to have been thought through, and so it really is more a novelty than anything else because it's such a mess. It's pretty, has some good music, ...

Re: Sonic Generations

The fact that a re-release of a 1993 game is getting so much attention sure speaks lots about Sega's track record. It's neat and all, and I'm glad Taxman ended up being this successful, but a part of me rather wishes the Retro Engine was a public tool to allow people to create their own Sonic game ...
