Re: Sonic ..Excursion?

I'm tired out of being in discussions like this concerning the Sonic franchise, but i'll throw this out here for old time's sake: Boosting needs to die in a car bombing and never return. It has come to the point where it's such a dominant game mechanic, that i'm left with the impression they'd rathe...

Re: Sonic ..Excursion?

but what I really mean to say with this diatribe is that Sonic Adventure 1 is a piece of shit but Sonic Adventure 2 is a much more polished game experience than any recent-year Sonic game. You're allowed to dislike lock-ons and emerald hunting, but you can't deny that contemporary Sonic games have ...

Re: Sonic ..Excursion?

We are, of course, aware this could turn out to be Wentos spending an afternoon writing up bullcrap to laff at those who speculate furiously over it? Even though Sega is shameless in everything they do of late. I guess we find out in 20 days when Microsoft has a name for their new box of always-conn...

Re: Sonic 1 and 2 getting Sonic CD style remakes

Word going around on Retro is that these remakes are testing the ground for something more, people have suggested a remake of Sonic 3 or maybe a new classic Sonic game built on Taxman's Retro Engine. You talking about all that cryptic, smug winking and nudging from all the site staff to buy the thi...

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

What was this fubaring? I thought we all liked the new Sonic CD? (Those of us who are inclined to like Sonic CD, that is!) I sure thought I was going to! But it happens that with the CD spindash enabled, if you are exceeding the basic running speed cap and run off a ledge, or even jump , while hold...

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

Is there any word on what Christian Whitehead is doing post-Sonic CD? IIRC he has some work lined up, but isn't providing specifics. Though after Sega's third-party contractors fubar'ed his work on CD, i'd personally prefer not to see him work with them again. The speed cap bug in the console/PC re...

Slick, though I can't help but wonder what the catch is. Capcom doesn't strike me as a company that wouldn't ask "what's in it for us?"

Re: Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed announced

I share the sentiment with a number of people that I was indifferent to this game until I witnessed this (spoilers). I'm still not sure I can forgive them for Danica Patrick and dubstep Splash Wave, but they have my attention now.

I hope they keep Gamecube controller ports on this thing.

Not happening. It annoys me too (I don't care for th...

However, it also gave me pause, because with the announcement of NiGHTS, I realized that everything that Sega has on the horizon that excites me most are remakes of old-ass games. Hrmeh.
