  1. Ekaje added a post in a topic Why people hate sonic   

    Because the franchise fell from being a rival to Mario in the market of well-designed mascot platformers to a series that's largely pretty bad and only held up by SEGA being very good at marketing the series to children. Aside from a few anomalies last gen, SEGA stopped giving a shit about Sonic as anything but a guaranteed moneymaker after the Dreamcast died. At this point they don't even bother halfassing the games themselves and outsource them instead. 
     
    It's kind of the opposite situation from the Mega Man series, which failed due to blunders in marketing rather than poor game releases outside of the later PS1 X games and two of the Network timeline games.

    Also who the fuck plays platformers, especially Sonic, for the plot? The story quality in most Sonic games is either nonexistant or cringeworthy.

    Being someone who also spends more time reading internet discussions than anything else, it's probably a symptom of being a boring-ass person who needs to do things more. 
  4. Ekaje added a post in a topic I can't be bothered to care about Sonic anymore.   

    I haven't been particularly into Sonic for years now. I still love the Genesis/SCD platformers, and have a liking for the Rush games and Colors/Gens, but other than that I don't have a big interest in the series other than hoping that Sonic Team's next time at bat will turn out more like Gens than Colors. 
     
    I still love the buttrock the other 3D games produced though.

    X is not going to get big numbers. It's a niche game on a failing console, and Nintendo is probably not going to advertise it at all. Nothing is going to save the WiiU, it's a huge mess and not much can be done for it. Some sales will trickle in for the first party games that come out every couple of months, but regardless of quality, that's not enough to turn it around now that the systems that the entire rest of the industry is going to focus on are out now.

    That game's already confirmed for other platforms, unless Nintendo turned it into an exclusive, but I find that doubtful.

    Ganon and Bowser's suicide attacks are pretty useful when you have a stock up on the other guy.

    It doesn't matter how significant your series' connection to Nintendo is as long as you beg to Sakurai enough. And Snake had a cool moveset, so I'd be fine with him coming back.

    I would sure blame them when that review will lead to people buying a crippled game with major features made impossible or risky to touch.

    With things like this happening on top of all the unlocalized or delayed games, I sure hope the 3DS isn't selling well in Europe.
     
    Oh, here's another bug for you someone found
     
     
    This basically means you have a random chance of the game crashing whenever you use the shop in the game.

    Someone patented that idea, so no one can do it anymore.

    I liked them. I thought that this and Red Steel 2 were the only Wii games (not counting the minigame in Wii Sports Resort) to do motion sword fighting well.

    I can't think of a good reason for a single player game to have 40 (or more) playable characters. Your idea sounds like one of those overambitious fangames that either never gets finished, or is terrible.
  14. Ekaje added a post in a topic Other Villains in the Series   

    I don't think Eggman is getting stale since he's only been the opposing force for the entire game in two 3D titles so far. To be honest, I'd like more games where Eggman is just the villain, and nothing more complicated than that.

    How are other gaming magazines doing? I would imagine that they wouldn't be doing too well other than the one that GameStop pretty much forces you to get when you get a card there.
