I don't even know how to respond to this.

I was on the Sega forums waiting for the new squeal and got this

Does Sega expect fans to simply sit back and suck cock? 'Cause they're right on the mark.

Hey, don't you worry! At least one of them is in! http://uk.gamespot.com/xbox360/sports/s ... daily-demo

Along with Vector!

Plus a theme song! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_iERYLYhAZ4

This is the part where I say actually I quite liked Sonic Riders and I don't think this looks all that bad. Quite like how you throw weapons. But seeing some of the demos it looks like a) You are going to lose some damn weight and b) you cant turn like you are on a snowboard. You have to bend your whole body. Front and Back.

I always said Vector would be a good fit for the series aesthetically.

I really don't know about this whole Kinect thing, but I hope they've finally ironed out the learning curve, fiddly rail/flight controls and general cheapness. Having to come first to progress to the next stage in GP mode was bullshit. Can Sumo Digital make the next one or something?

If they bring back Fang it'll reunite the entire Sonic Drift 2 cast! If that really means anything!

I think he's confusing the GP Mode with the Story mode, which was set around a Grand Prix.

Yes, Story Mode, my mistake!

Is GP mode the one where you have to come first in every race to unlock the secret Sega characters?

Either way, bullshit.

Yeah, considering he even used an airbike in a non-racing game it's odd that they haven't thought to bring him back for Riders.

Ah yes, I forgot about that. I never managed to do it, myself.

Maybe, but easy bullshit I basically never had a problem accomplishing. Where are you getting hung up?

The Sega characters come from clearing all of Mission mode, the Sega courses are unlocked by 1st in the GP cups. (Super Sonic, however, is nigh-completely unplayable and should be paid no heed)

Holding hands to play 2-player has to be one of the dumbest ideas I've ever heard of in a video game.

Some would almost call it... innovative.
