Dance Music has depth and it is upbeat, giving a sence of vastness and coolness.


What the fuck.

Whatever. I reiterate, though,

There's a lot more that needs fixing than music... especially when the music is just damn fine as-is, thanks.

Masato Nakamura.

Anyway, I don't think the preview confirms Shadow's use of firearms. As far back as I remember firearms have been brought to subject with this game as far back as E3 2006, what with Shadow driving that jeep. Unfortunately, I wouldn't count firearms out just yet.

Thats odd about that guns thing. I got a chance to read some of the manual a while back, and there's no mention of weapons outside of vehicles. Same case when i played an early version of one of Shadow's levels.

Also, for some reason, they've decided to include a sort of dating sim. You control Elisa like a normal character. However, depending on how you play through the levels, you'll meet different characters. You then get these training sessions where you can learn one the characters ablities. Apparently you'll have a lot of choice. So you could train Elisa to have the speed of Sonic and the psychic powers of Silver. Depending on how you play through her story will effect who Elisa confesses her love to.

Basicly, Emerl is back...

That would be really weird. Imagine Elise running across water and hopping from pillar to pillar in that one mach speed stage. Think of the possibilities with the other characters.

Another one of your jokes right? Please say it's a joke!

I'm really starting to think this game could go either way. Some elements of it look good but a lot of it looks like the exact opposite of what I was hoping for. It half looks like an unofficial "Shadow the Hedgehog 2".

(gasps in disbelief)You're making that up!

Somehow I can't envision Elise curling up into a ball and jumping around, or running up the side of walls etc.

Good Lord. A Princess Maker mini-game? Actual hints of possible human/anthro relations?

Sonic the Comic used their ideas to produce action scenes instead of stupid kissing scenes, so yeah.



And Sonic being a yerk was also cool:


"Sonic was portrayed in his eponymous comic with an attitude which differs slightly compared to what is considered the norm in other media; here he is presented as being somewhat bossy, cocky and arrogant, and characters regularly referred to his "strange sense of humour". Sonic's attitude frequently made cruel jokes at the expense of his friend Tails, behavior contrary to that seen in most of the continuities. However, like all his incarnations, Sonic truly does care about his friends and their well-being, the same care also applies to his home planet of Mobius"

Is this some kind of last ditch effort to try and finally make Sonic popular in Japan or something? That's absolutely unbelievable.

I don't know, this seems like something Sonic Team would try to pull. Don't forget the whole Princess Fiona thing that OCB hinted at earlier- that could just as easily be another one of his hoaxes, but I wouldn't put that past Sonic Team, either.

So long as Eggman is a feasible candidate, I'm all for it. It could happen; it seems as if she'll be around him for a considerable period of time, what with her being kidnapped and all, and he has a more cultivated persona this time around. How could she possibly resist him? If he lost the throbbing man-thighs, I'd totally hit it.

Back in May, I wrote:I think I get it now. They're building to a climax where at E3 they'll announce the production of Shadow the Hedgehog 2 and the Sonic Dating Sim. Then, just as our outrage and despair has peaked, Yuji Naka will jump out of a closet and yell "Surprise!" and show us the game Sonic Team has really been working on for the past 6 years.


IT IS CLEAR TO ME NOW!

THEY JUST DO THE OPPOSITE OF EVERYTHING WE SAY!

Man, I really hope Sonic Team'll make the worst video game in existence. The gaming equivalent of an Uwe Boll movie. That'd rock, wouldn't it?

Please, don't give Uwe Boll credit for anything, including worst movie. <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Films_considered_the_worst_ever">There are much better candidates.</a>

Freddie got Fingered really shouldn't be in any of these lists. Sure it's absolutely and utterly retarded but I can't see how anyone with a sense of humour could watch it without finding some degree of humour at least.

I was gonna do a full animation of myself getting hit from both sides, then getting crushed under an anvil. But i got lazy... and was left with this. http://www.thepartybasket.co.uk/flipboo ... tcoul.html

That is, after i revealed that the Sonic dating sim was a joke. I was really just extending on the love sub-plot to a foolish level.

Oh, you devil.

On the subject of Freddy Got Fingered, Tom Green can be funny at times, but the movie was flat out dumb.

could you perhaps try not being a complete moron and not just making shit up in future? Its good that youre an 'insider', but seriously making retarded bollocks up is just immature and often the reason why people such as yourself are laughed at frequently.

My opinion of this game is low enough already, without having to inwardly groan even more and then retract that inward groan from myself due to misinformation.

Once again, it's sad that I seriously questioned whether or not you were joking. Sexuality is the last bastion they haven't stormed yet and I'm pretty sure that even they won't touch that rat's nest. Even so, I'd believe it.
