    Guh, it's like they're under contractual obligation to mention LOL SONIC CHARACTERS SUCK at least once per article. It's sounding pretty good, though. Hooray for Billy actually being voiced, unlike in Riders. GOOD MARNING~!

    Man marries a video game

    "This man's choice violates my values, and therefore I want to kill him for it!" Sounds like classic bigotry to me. Yeah, what the man's doing is weird, but it's not hurting anyone. For you to be so angry over his choice strikes me as very very harsh, y'know? People are all different, and if those differences aren't inherently harmful to anybody, they should be accepted rather than shunned. At least, that's what I think.

    The first five episodes were more along the lines of what I was expecting out of the series. That's why I bought the first DVD volume of the Japanese version, and I still can enjoy it to this day. What I didn't realize at the time was that episode 6 and beyond (with a few exceptions, such as the magnificent episode 26) were to have the show completely fall flat on its face. I also don't believe that the severe backlash against 4Kids is warranted; the English translation is pretty faithful to the original except for the censorship of deaths and music (and besides, the way this series handles deaths is rather embarrassing anyway). Sonic X was always a children's anime, through and through. No adult can properly enjoy this series without being a Sonic fan. The statement that "most anime is not for kids" is a lie. Sonic X flirted with mediocrity, and it's a pretty terrible show, even though it had its moments. It didn't have songs, but it's just as humiliating to sit through as Sonic Underground. Episode 26 was the series' grace (not saving grace, though) until Super Sonic started showing up every six episodes. Sonic X is also a retarded name.

    I've wondered about a cel-shaded Sonic game before. Shuffle looks pretty rough in-game, but I think a lot of that is the low polygon count; looks pretty good, and since we're now at a point where we could replicate that in-game, it might be worth another shot.

    Don't you think that's a bit harsh. It's not as if he's done anything extremely bad, what he's doing is a bit obsure but I hardly believe it warrants anything that cruel.

    It's a bit of a surprise that none of the original bonus stages were pinball-themed, really. I mean, S3&K didn't even have a proper pinball/casino level, so that would've been perfect. I like the idea a lot, actually. It's got the same simplicity and charm as the classic slot machine bonus stage, with 100% less obnoxious spinning. Add in a remix of something from Sonic Spinball and a pixelly, monochrome pinball machine display at the top featuring an angry Eggman and I'm sold.

    What if there was a spike shield? Finally a chance for Sonic to inflict the damage that he has felt for years on his enemies! I'd love to see a game in which Eggman and Sonic's roles were reversed. Eggman the Human, hero of Earth, battles the evil Doctor Sonic and his army of furries who intend to takeover Earth and build a Sonicland.

    Intelligence is of the mind. Morality is of the soul. The two are not related except in the process of making a choice. You do seem to allude that upbringing is a part of whether someone becomes deviant or not. That can certainly be influential, but ultimately, people are what they choose make of themselves. If you cut away all the excess and get in deep, nobody is ever forced by genetics or whatnot to go one way or the other (except for gender, but that is decided well in advance). But there are forces of influence working either way that can be identified. I think the explanation for rampant evil in the world is simple: humanity is evil by nature. Well, not directly, but the root of all evil is selfishness, and humans are definitely selfish by nature, and this certainly shows in those who have not been properly disciplined. This is where intelligence could come in: the building of intellect in the first place would necessitate the building of discipline as a prerequisite. But there are no guarantees; after all, Hitler, Stalin, and Mao were considerably learned people (though we can chalk their actions up to ideological insanity). In order to overcome evil, one has to want to do so in the first place. Before that can happen, the difference between good and evil must be established. Whatever moral standard is used, it is not good to have one that is arbitrary or relative, because the possibility of change with circumstance would make it meaningless. To illustrate this, stealing to survive may seem justifiable in some circles, but it is still stealing, and therefore still wrong, correct? If it is not wrong under certain circumstances, there is a greater burden to figure out what those justifiable circumstances would be, and on and on. Several good points had already been identified in the first post: 1) hatred is a basic instinct; 2) people could also be brought up to hate (but they can also be brought up to love); 3) ultimately, it comes down to personal choice. To answer the original question about choice, destiny, or ignorance, the answer is all three. And a general idea is always a good basis for getting into details.

    It's not a shield, but I would love the blue ring power-up from Chaotix to make a return appearance into the series.

    I, on the other hand, fully support Tailikku's quest to rid the world of this kind of stupidity in the most Stalinist manner possible. I mean really. If a man's marrying his DS, he'd probably welcome death.

    Running, I mean it must be overrated for Sonic Team to keep throwing in all this other crap to help bolster it.

    I'm probably going to be the only one who's going to mention the Tornado parts from SA1. The parts from Unleashed don't count, they're all horrible QTE fests. (much like the rest of the game amirite guys) Imagine that kind of thing in next-gen, though, if they improved it, it'd be sort of like one of the old Star Fox games, only way faster and with a lot more neat traps and such. Maybe have Sonic be able to jump off the plane every once in a while and do cool stuff before landing back on it, without any QTEs.

    Another point that is mentioned in that interview with Craig Duncan is that all of the characters are staying true to their games. So yes, it is meant to be serious enough for true SEGA fans; except for Big the Cat, a blatant joke character. There will be no raping of characters, regardless if you think shoving Ecco the Dolphin in a giant fishbowl on wheels isn't classified as raping of a character or not (because it definitely is). They are keeping attention to detail with Shenmue as well, which is also a serious series. They made sure the forklift looked just like the one in Shenmue.
