Re: New Sonic game for 2015

I don't know how I could be labeled as Sega fanboy , when I've plunked down a ton of money towards Nintendo consoles and handhelds throughout the years. I don't get your logic. I hate Smash Bros, so that must mean I am a Sega fanboy? I'm not allowed to legitimately not like the game? But Smash Bros...

Re: New Sonic game for 2015

Damn. Considering how much Sega has invested in Boom, and their current financial state (Lost World was a bomb) I worry it's possible the failure of this new initiative could actually kill sonic Though Sonic would likely live on at another company like Nintendo wishful thinking the hiccup of Lost W...

Re: New Sonic Adventure Album

Other long-standing franchises, be they games, comics, cartoons, whatever else all at least have had some sort of general consensus among their respective fans on what the overall tone of said franchise should be at one point or another, but I don't think Sonic ever had this. Dragon Ball didn't eit...

Re: New Sonic Adventure Album

Well, interpretation doesn't equal fact. I certainly didn't think of it that way. I just thought Gamma saw the bird and wanted to release the one he had trapped in his chassis. Gamma was the blue bird's mom. There would be no reason for Gamma to think or know that the daddy bird was in one of the o...

Re: New Sonic Adventure Album

I think the problem you guys have is that you're playing a video game but what you want to do is enjoy a story. I don't care about plot in Sonic games, and the cutscenes in the Adventure games are more of a fun diversion between stages what with the jerky animations and bad voice acting, and all the...

(also why does the sound test play only the first verse!?) Because they got rid of per-character credits and no cutscene is long enough to warrant having the entire song on the disc. "Save the planet from disaster," is an obvious allusion to Little Planet, but it could mean any planet. Versatility!...

Personally, speaking about Ted Poley's tracks, Open Your Heart, It Doesn't Matter, Escape from the City and E.G.G.M.A.N. are all great songs that embrace the silliness of the Sonic universe while at the same time being straight enough that they get you hyped for playing the game. I particularly like...

Re: We few, we happy, we Smash Bros. in arms.

A demo just went went up earlier today in the American and European 3DS eShops. It has unlimited uses, solo and local versus play with five characters and one stage (with For Fun/For Glory rules). I still have three surplus codes, so if any of our European GHZ brethren (do we have any?) want in and ...

Re: We few, we happy, we Smash Bros. in arms.

But one of his specials is also based off Wild Gunman. He's a pastiche of Nintendo's light gun experiments, and he's better off for it. Kind of like the Villager having the balloons from Balloon Fight.

His smash attacks involve cowering on the ground while an off-screen Zapper shoots in his general direction, and his Final Smash knocks opponents straight into a Wild Gunman shoot-off, so yeah.

Re: Sonic 1 and 2 getting Sonic CD style remakes

I always assumed the reason they replaced some tracks for the PC version was because those tracks all featured prominent audio samples and thus couldn't be recreated very well in general MIDI. (Launch Base, Carnival Night, Knuckles theme, and the credits music all had vocal samples, and Ice Cap had...

Sounds more like Golden Axe. I was going to maybe say Phantasy Star (with a not-so-subtle nod at PSO2's vaporware existence outside of Japan), but what's so special about any of these franchises that can't be solved by slapping together an emulator and a ROM and selling it for 5 bucks?

(And those ESRB ratings ain't free!) This. It costs several hundreds of dollars to get a game rated for release, and the price only goes up if you want to release it in Europe, Australia, and very specifically Germany (thanks, USK). So when you're selling your game at a scant five bucks a unit, you...

How anyone can look at Metal Sonic and think he's not redesigned is a mystery to me--he's all stretched out and yet his face seems even more scrunched than usual. The angle shown here hides his sharper edges but it's also possible that they've been removed or beveled out of existence, and while 3D ...
