Re: Sonic Generations

Suggestion noted. I understand the subjectivity of opinion, but you... you are just plain wrong . Yes, that was a little harsh I guess. I see what they were going for with the rings, it's just a flop of execution. Like I said, the scoring in Colors baffles me. Of the S-ranks I did get (about 17 IIR...

Re: Sonic Generations

You're shown which red rings you've already collected on the map and at the bottom right of the screen during gameplay. And, as Esrever said, the ones you've already collected become transparent. They're not removed from the levels because they offer a lot of bonus points, making them an integral p...

Re: Sonic Generations

Is this the first gameplay video we've seen with the red rings? That system worked so well in Sonic Colours. The same red rings system that didn't bother to remove previously collected rings, resulting in confusion if you stop playing the game for any length of time? The red rings that unlocked not...

And I am trying to resist the urge to beat my head on a wall after reading the last four posts. Yes, let's canonize something so trivial as completely different character designs and then mash them together with a car crusher at the end of the game, so none of our fans will be happy with the result ...

Re: Sonic Generations

Nope, Knux only, and you even have to press B to use it, not A. So like all of the game's weird moves, you'll probably only use it by accident. Out of the manual and offhand, everything Sonic can do in Advance 3: - He can roll, spindash, and go into boost mode with anybody - Spin Jump (all but Amy) ...

Re: It's Dr. Eggman's 20th Birthday.

I've just never liked Sonic Chaos. The art just seems totally bland and unmemorable, the level design wasn't great, and the final boss is the epitome of anticlimax. Not entirely, he does try to throw you off with lasers when you're bouncing on him, and his UFO mode can kill you instantly. The rest ...

Re: Sonic Generations

Ignoring every character except Sonic and Tails, Sonic Adventure was the most sincere attempt at translating Sonic to 3D gameplay. But Sonic Colours is still a better game by all other criteria. Oh, so that's why 90% of my experience with Colors was divided between: 1) Cursing out cheap deaths 2) F...

I don't get the excitement about the PC version. Like I'm not against the game being available to more people, but it seems like people are really eager for there to be a PC version this time around. No one cared if there was a PC version of Unleashed. Are you guys just not on board with current-ge...

The co-op could be more like NSMB Wii and Donkey Kong Country, so both characters stay on screen, have their own ring counters and items etc. Assuming it's also supposed to be a 2D Sonic game: > Player 1 tries to play game > Player 2 stops moving > Screen locks in place > Insert dozens of scenarios...

It's not the gameplay styles either. Most any problems with those can...

Ladies and gentlemen, the death of EA Sports

http://www.gamespot.com/news/6319589.html Over the past year and a half, Electronic Arts has launched a number of initiatives designed at pocketing more money from the games it sells.

Re: Sonic Generations

I wonder if he remembers how well Sonic Adventure 2 Battle sold for a third-party Gamecube title, even though it was released long after Sonic's 10th birthday. They made SA2:B in roughly 5 months after the DC version's release, so i'm guessing that particular port was an attractive idea because it ...

I haven't played SA2 in a while, but I recall that the truck would not hesitate to ram your ass if you slowed down too much, and only after hitting you would it slow down.

Neither is very impressive beyond the eye candy.

Did anyone else happen to catch that the truck in the modern stage seems to deliber...

That too is questionable, seeing as the people using Brawl hacks have been used to doing this themselves for free. Still, my point was more that Brawl has been torn apart to the extent that it is highly unlikely Nintendo could have sustained any momentum with DLC for that game, in the state that it ...

Re: Guess the Sonic Generations Stages

Heroes would've sucked with or without multiple characters. Shadow was worse, and you can't really blame the guns for that. No you can't, but it was dramatically less glitchy than Heroes and still managed to be (probably by accident) entertaining and enjoyable in a sort of cheesy, mindless way. Her...

But at least Episode II has some appeal again! Unless it's been quietly cancelled. Mega Man Universe, as a reminder, underwent months of media silence before they finally made it official that the plug had been pulled. E3 may be coming up, but as embarrassingly long as it's been taking them to make...
