(although he's hella fast on foot too, so I don't really see why he needs it). Haha, I always forget how Eggman is able to inexplicably out run Sonic in every instance that it calls for. Maybe Eggman's rage for Sonic boils down to jealousy that Sonic gets all this recognition for his speed, even th...

I thought Crazy Penguin's was actually the most creative or at least the funniest. The other ones were amusing but a little obvious. My actual vote went to Ngangbius', which was my second favorite, on the account that she has a realistic shot of winning and also there was some thought and hard work ...

Robotnik is a genius. But, you see, the message of the Sonic games is this: brawn will always trump brains. You can have an IQ of 300 and build multiple flying aircrafts, but as soon as you meet a guy that can run fast, it's over.

This was genuinely a difficult choice! Ultimately, though, I went with Opa Opa's - it was a neat idea to focus on a location rather than a character or an action and that makes it stick out to me.

And, of course, it just looks good.

I'll tell you what, though, it is astounding that there is no 2P race mode in Secret Rings. This, of all games, really could've used it!

Yeah, like Hybrid said, it's a problem that comes up every once in awhile. I solve it generally in a quicker way, just by taking the batteries out for a second and putting them back in the remote, it seems to do the trick each time without having to reset the system (because the problem has occurred...

That's a good point. Everyone was chanting his name! What was he to do?

I guess we can basically conclude that Sonic the Hedgehog is a nihilist.

And Sonic's characterization in the SatSR ending iis surprisingly awesome. I haven't seen him that badass since watching the Sonic CD movies. More surprising is that Jason Griffith sounds spot on in that scene; definitely a step up from what I remember him sounding like in Sonic X . The 'handkerchi...

Also, TP's Wii controls certainly don't make or break the game. Heck, I ended up even turning off the pointing for shooting arrows. If you're planning on getting a Wii already, I'd just go that route, but otherwise there's not much you'd miss by playing on the Cube.

I have one skill that apparently amplifies my sliding skill, but I don't actually HAVE the sliding skill yet. So I've been turning off that one, and then one that turns the backstep into an attack. What they mean by sliding, I'm pretty sure, is what happens before you release the 2 button. Also, th...

The skills absolutely add a lot of depth to the game. I wasn't paying very close attention to them as I went through the story, just sort of adding ones I thought would be the best, but by the time I had the first duel with Erazor , it was something that you really needed to think about. This is pro...

Wow, this game is crap. Have you played it yet? I know you have a Wii, so I'd be curious if you've been playing it and just flat out hating it. Same question for Frieza too; are you just disappointed with the story of the game or did you not like playing? My roommates and I have been playing this a...

The way I've been working the homing attack is just one solid, decisive twist towards the screen. It doesn't take much force. One thing I have been finding frustrating, especially in the Evil Foundry world, is the brake/reverse system. It's ridiculous to have Sonic keep running in this wall, then ba...

Regarding your fourth point, aren't both of your hands on the remote anyway? I can't even picture how you'd try to flick with only one hand. Anyway, I bought this today and played to the third world (not counting Lost Prologue), completing the Sand Oasis boss (which was cool) but not any of the othe...

I love the Wii! It hasn't bothered me at all that the Wii isn't capable of the graphics of 360 or PS3. I have very little interest in that kind of thing. What I wanted for a console was something that would be simple, fun and encouraging for multiplayer. Wii Sports, WarioWare, Bomberman '93 and Guns...
