    Oh, I've always wanted to say this to you crazy fans. SHUT THE FUCK UP! "Sonic's eyes are green!" Oh, cry me a fucking river! I don't giva a shit if Sonic's eyes are Blue, red, black, brown, purple, or even pink! He's still Sonic! "Its the modern model!" So fucking what! That model is actually better! It's 2010, not 1991! Get. Used. To. It. "Eggman's his name?" Yeah, so what? First, that has been his name ever since Sonic 1 came out in Japan, which is where Sonic, Eggman, Tails, Amy, etc were created and where Sonic 1 was released at FIRST! And secondly, SEGA of America had to change his name for the US release because SoA possibly would of gotten sued by The Beatles for using a name they made first. Japan can call him Eggman because SoJ CAN'T get sued by The Beatles. Also, why use a cookie as a model? If someone spits on any food, it will taste bad. This is a FUCKING CARTOON HEDGEHOG! Grow the fuck up.

    Sonic Rush 3

    Let me tell you guys a story. In the year 2009, DC comics premiered a television show called Batman, Brave and the Bold. This television show was a throwback to the silver age in every possible way, using Dick Sprang as a basis conceptually. But what's this? There were some abberant elements in the mix. This is Jaime Reyes, the current Blue Beetle, active in a show based on an era he wasn't even CONCEIVED in. Yes, they did use Ted Kord later on, but it was in a flashback and Jaime still exists in the Sprang-inspired era that is this cartoon. Furthermore, Brave and the Bold is rife with other, similar examples of fusing the modern with the past - Aquaman sports his modern incarnation's beard but his classic personality, Huntress is based off her modern incarnation but has the outfit that belonged to the Silver Age version who was Batman's daughter, and Firestorm is an amalgam of the original version of the character and the newer, blacker version in the comics. Then there's another example from DC animated canon. Batman the Animated series established a minimalist style and a 1940's-esque (but still modern) setting, that in later series, fully evolved into a more modern and general looking series. But one of the redesigns did not sit well with all fans. The Joker was far and away removed from the TNBA design and looked incredibly ghoulish. You'd think future DCAU cartoons would cast this off completely and return to the more accepted classic design, yes? No, they made this. The Joker design used in Justice League and Return of the Joker was not the Joker used in BTAS, but instead, an amalgam of the BTAS and TNBA designs that combined what worked about the TNBA design and fused them with what worked with the BTAS design, and created an arguably superior model that was simpler to animate, tidier, and emphasized the inhumanity of the Joker better than EITHER design ever could. But Raz, you might say, these are cartoons. What's the point here? Well, were talking about school of design, so the same general themes are relevant here. Nitrogen calls the design sensibilities used in what he calls "Noodlemouse" to be Frankensteining. But me, I don't think that's neccessarily fair at all. Sonic has existed in his modern form for over ten years, and that isn't exactly fair to Sega to say that this should be cast off or that it doesn't have a place in a game homaging Sonic's legacy. The fact is, games like Mega Man 9 have fooled us into thinking that strict adherence to an old model and visual style is needed for things like this. But it's not. Mega Man 9 is the exception that proves the rule. Other games that fit its mold have not so religously clung to the past. New Super Mario Bros. is very much the same type of game, despite the legacy title and numbering not being present in it. It also uses the ground pound, a move originated in Yoshi's series, and used in the 3D games as a fall canceller and a way of more precise attacking of enemies on a 3D plane. Not unlike the homing attack, it exists in New Super Mario Bros. as an artifact of the modern era, but it's also quietly accepted even though in some ways it's easier to use than the standard platforming tropes in Mario Bros. and isn't needed for the same things as it is in the 3D games or even its parent series, Yoshi's Island. But that's getting a bit far and away from my main point. I don't see why a marriage of styles, one that acknowledges the modern as well as the past, is neccessarily a bad thing. Brave and the Bold did it. The DCAU did it. Lots and lots and LOTS of things still do it; both in video games and television. Even Bionic Commando: Re-armed is not as overly religious about it, and features a graphical update that in many ways as "skitzophrenic" as Nitrogen claims "Noodlemouse" appears to be. Other examples include the various Transformers incarnations. Bumblebee is now fully realized as a hybrid of his G1 and movie incarnations, with a black stripe and a more active heroic role than simply being a plucky young companion. Transformers Animated featured an Optimus Prime that derived elements from Robots in Disguise, G1, and Beast Wars. The character of Lockdown has gone on to appear in the movie line in its particular visual style. Toy design utilizes engineering and innovations designed by the movie toys as well; the G1-themed classic series utilized the engineering tricks and "automorph" elements concieved for the movie toys while using the visual styles of the original series... and even then, very FEW of them are straight out recreations of their original designs. Classics Optimus Prime is G1 Optimus modernized, but he's also more robo-muscular and heroic looking than his original Floro Dery design. Meanwhile, the War for Cybertron game that was recently announced has Prime wielding an axe inspired by the seperate, non-deployed by his hand weapon from Animated... thus bringing us around full circle. I'm sure some of you are going to dissect my argument and state that this doesn't have any application to video games. But it DOES. The pure, basic concepts of design in entertainment media are inherently related. They're also not precise, and don't follow strict, basic guidelines like Nitrogen and Phos keep claiming they do. They run the gamut from hundreds and hundreds of different elements that fit together like legos in infinite possibilities. Sonic is no different, but people continue to declare that Sonic needs to be fit into a smaller and smaller box, without any self awareness or ability to COMPROMISE or give a little bit on any issue whatsoever. As long as it fits a single rigid paradigm is what's important, apparently, even though no one can really nail down what that IS. For instance, they could bring back the old badniks... but there's also something to be said by bringing back those old friends and those old memories that captured our amazement in the old days. If they made new ones based on the old ones, I'd be just as satisfied... but there would be just as many people calling them soulless ripoffs in the same way they did to the Egg Pawns. While overlooking the fact that the Egg Pawns are conceptually more varied and imaginative than their predecessor the Eggrobo and capture Eggman's sense of fun and whimsy extremely well, which is just a flying blimp with a gun, but I digress. The real problem is that they were overused. The "New" disclaimer in New Super Mario Bros. is not as definitive as you might think. The title still makes a promise to reclaim the elements of the original game, with or without it. And yet, if we did the same things that we're doing with Sonic, we'd nitpick how Mario runs like he's actually exerting himself like a real runner instead of holding his arms to the side and looking like he's doing a comfortable jog. Bionic Commando Re-Armed has a more realistic individual trouncing about in the minimalist environment of the original game. I could go on forever, doing the same thing with hundreds of video games and hundreds of television shows and hundreds of comics. Hell, I'd say that Spectacular Spider-man is betraying its promise to return to the glory days of the early Spider-man comics by using a Vulture inspired by the modern costume instead of his bright green long johns of yesteryear. But that'd be unfair. But meh. I've made my point. At the very least, the use of "frankensteining" has an ironic undertone... in that Frankenstein was a fully realized and worthwhile individual who was spurned and ruined by the inability of the person who mattered most to realize its true worthiness. Food for thought.

    Bah. I really don't think there's much to the notion that Pokemon designs are getting worse. Look at Poliwhirl or Persian... if either of those was announced as a new Pokemon nowadays, people would throw a shitfit. Every generation has a few losers; that doesn't mean that the franchise is ruined forever. EDIT: Feh, beaten to it. I actually kind of like Electabuzz, though, which just goes to show how subjective this all is anyway.

    Sonic Rush 3

    Because they want to sell this to actual children in addition to people who act like children. I'm constantly shocked at just how much of an issue this is with some people. It's not that you don't have any valid points; certainly it'd be reasonable to go back to the classic design in this case, and of course you're free to like whichever design you want, but to have so much whining and arguing and crying and raging over this, something so unimportant to what Sonic is really about? It's a child's temper tantrum, not because you aren't getting the candy, but because it isn't the right color. Even worse, the people who wanted a "Sonic 4" always tried to paint themselves as the mature and intelligent part of the fanbase, the ones who look deeper to try to understand why Sonic works, who aren't going to fall for trash just because it has Sonic's face on it. But after all this pissing and moaning they end up looking just as bad; they may not buy it just for Sonic's face, but they'll reject it for having the wrong face.

    BioShock 2

    It's more of the same, can't really complain cause that's what you usually expect from a sequel. Can't expect all sequels to be more "innovative" than the first, that's being unrealistic. And not like more of what we got in the first Bioshock is a bad thing. The new hacking techniques are a definite improvement. It's simpler and less tedious. And the ability to do it from a distance adds more strategic options. Little sister defense is also a good addition since the game really needs those stand your ground segements to use your trap weapons. Multiplayer is okay. If I had to compare it to another game, it's like a kit-based Halo, at least by the pace that games usually go. It suffers the same frustrating aspect as other rank unlock based multiplayer games in that it's going to be frustrating the first couple of games trying to get new weapons when the higher ranks are beating you down with grenade launchers and crossbows. Not something to scream home about but a nice addition I suppose.

    For crying out loud, blame Nintendo for this shrubbery. Hasn't the reason already been stated by Ryota Niitsuma as to why the WIi can't do this crap? I have already read an article on GameSpot about the "jumping ship" devs are doing because of the sh!t Nintendo pulls.

It'll warrant even a hefty price tag for me, since I was willing to pay the full £30 to £35 before it was revealed as a budget title. Ah wonderful. Made my day that did.

    Most direct sequels aren't billed as such 15 years after the fact, after many many other entries in the franchise have been made; and most other direct sequels don't treat being a direct sequel as being one of the most major features of the game. In fact: The only other example I can think of that is remotely similar to this Street Fighter II to Street Fighter IV, and that game being in stylised 3D rather than hand-drawn 2D is still a fairly controversial thing over a year after its release. And that controversy in itself is for a game that Capcom made no promises of being a retro revival at all.

    Sonic Rush 3

    I agree with this entirely. Hell, my raison d'être in the Sonic fandom is as a fanfic writer, so dialogue and charactersation are my air and water in this regard. But this doesn't prevent me from realising that my agenda is a relatively minor one. The great mass of 90's nostalgia players remember Sonic as a plucky sprite on a colourful background, whose story is told entirely through mute in-engine cutscenes IF AT ALL. And it is these people who the game is being marketed towards, not me and the rest of the fanfiction.net brigade. I repeat again that if Sega are trying to channel the spirit of S1-K, why are they not using the methods and styles of S1-K? But rather Rush-esque 3D models in 2D surroundings?

    Chances are DLC will be limited to 360/PS3. Whilst it's entirely possible to do it elsewhere, the big stumbling block is how you actually make it available. On Wii there's no DLC store as such - so you have to write some form of in-game store, that also safely handles transactions and deals with downloads that may get paused or corrupted. Then you've got the limited storage space, unlike an unlock key or music track, game assets here are pretty big. You're looking at over a 100Mb for something like an extra track and character. Which would soon fill the Wii's internal memory, meaning you then have write SD card support - which has it's own set of problems...! Plus you can't update games on Wii (not so far as I know) unless the DLC is supported by shipped code, you can't add anything once the game is done. It's not undoable of course, but all the effort has to be paid for. PC is a similar story, whilst the game will likely be made available via Steam, and you can offer DLC via the same method - what about disk owners? Again you'd have to write some method or store, then there is the whole security issue too, it'd have to made pretty difficult to extract back out - else people will just share it about for free. Again, this can be overcome, but again, it bumps up your cost. That's before you consider the cost to test assets over multiple platforms to boot If the cost for implementing the content and getting it working exceeds the money you'll make for doing it... So whilst I can never say never, I think outside of 360/PS3 it's not likely to be something that will happen. --- S0L ---

    To just end it all.

    I think that has alot to do with this mentality. Many of us realize that we are fanboys of the franchise. Does that make us bias toward it? Of course it does. But at the same time it also means that we love the franchise, and like all things we love, we are hardest on. People who play the Sonic games, especially the people who grew up with Sonic, have grown to make expectations. The more we got closer to Sonic, the bigger and better things we would eventually expect from it. It is not entirely a result of the greatness/lack of greatness of the quality of the classics, but more so about just falling in love with the end product. Sonic inspires many of us, and is many things to many people. The sheer size and diversity of the fanbase is a testament to this. As the series grew and took a bigger chunk of our lives, it is really only a natural progression that some of us would start to be unsatisfied. I think Omega says it best. Anything too big or too powerful will become a threat. When 3D Sonic got big, he became a threat to the people whom preferred the classic gameplay. When Rush started to be considered the golden standard, all of a sudden the fanbase cant shut up about its flaws. When green eyes pop up in...... well, you get the idea. Since we love our individual niece of the franchise so much, we tend to fight for it. Every little thing and every little detail. For all the conflict that ensues, it is not exactly a bad thing, but rather a testament to how highly we hold these characters. Sure we fight, but we are all fighting to preserve our own little slice of heaven. All the people whom might think it time for the series to end probably just see the modern variations as a threat to their enjoyment of the classics. Its hard to express your love for Sonic CD while the world screams "Sonik Sukz". Ending the series might be damage control. Nothing else to taint the pool. Me, I don't feed into it. Action Platformers are my thing and I enjoy every title. Plus, Mario is just too slow for my tastes.

    Sonic Rush 3

    The comic died because Blue Beetle isn't exactly the most popular book. But seriously, it does have its fanbase. You're assuming the evidence of one thing means the existance of another. Worrying about it is fine, but you're still justifying it beyond what's available to you, and that's intellectually dishonest. Chip's storyline was the highpoint of Unleashed for me. You're boiling down a catch phrase that was used for comedic relief in scattered instances into a defining character trait. All to defend toe tapping and finger waving and the stuff you pull out about Sonic scowling all the time. Dude, I don't like Sonic 06 anymore than the next fan does. I like some elements of it like Silver and Mephiles, but that's their general elements. But Adventure, Adventure 2, and Unleashed aren't "stupid shit" to me. Neither is Black Knight, Secret Rings, or Battle. I don't praise Sonic 1 or 2 for their stories or for being memorable because that's not their aim. They have some nice presentation, but that's about it. And practically every game series has moved away from that level of minimalism in its existance. Even Mega Man. Especially Mega Man. That's teal. Not grey.

    I can quantify it, actually. Unfortunetly, I'm short on time, so here's the short version: Who needs gameplay when you can have "homing attack over big pits"? Bonus: call now and you can use the boost to get through! Translation: the new mechanics sap depth and interactivity away from the game. Who needs endearing characterization when you can have some chocolate? Who needs a simple but memorable story with an excellent climax when you can have some stupid shit about aliens and or time travel? I don't think I've ever seen green represented as black with grey highlights before.

    Sonic Rush 3

    Sonic's new stuff doesn't often compliment or enhance the things that made the old stuff great, it usually replaces it, usually with stuff that doesn't bring much to the table. This is also where the whole "Sonic 4" thing comes in. They aren't making some new series based on the classic games, they're making "Sonic 4". His hair had been green since what, the 40's. That's kinda strange. "Exception that proves the rule" doesn't mean anything, if it was a rule, there wouldn't be any exceptions. The biggest change in NSMBW vs. SMB 3 was the wall jump, a move that's actually more useful in 2D because you come upon walls more often. The characters in Bionic Commando were always more realistic than their environments. And I'm also not claiming that they followed this strict rules just because, the Rush esque elements I pointed out wouldn't have worked under the old physics system because they would put Sonic in a constant struggle with gravity.

    There's no way I could not like Sonic. I grew up with him. And no matter how badly his games get bashed, no matter what Sega does to him, no matter how fucked up the fanbase is, I'll still be a fan. Maybe I won't buy every single game, maybe I'll hate some games to pieces, but there's just something about Sonic that I can't turn away from. I freaking love the little blue guy.

    I love Sonic as much as any Classic or Modern fan would, and I always will. I played his games since I was 2 years old, and I still play them today no matter what some nutjob will say to me about "OMG U liek SAwNiCK! He's teh SUX sinse he went THREE-DEE". Yeah, well cry me a river jackass. There's nothing wrong with being critical of the series. That only shows you love it that much...sometimes. While that's said, I do think there is a problem when you become so critical you wind up bogging down your enjoyment over a very simple detail. That's not saying that you should shut up and enjoy what you have (although I would recommend it ), but to try to be realistic instead of over the top. You can't let green eyes ruin the enjoyment of the gameplay, which a lot of classic fans allowed to happen. I can understand having preferences, but if you let that dictate everything...well enjoy what you want, cause I can't help ya. But if you end up pissing folks off when you take it too far, you end up with the consequences. There's nothing wrong with liking something that is dated or new. Nostalgia and Change can both do damage and good, but when you end up scorning folks for liking what you don't then you're just being a douche. And you're a flat out asshole when you try to make you're tastes more valid than someone else's. The value of an opinion is not that great for any side of the debate, and a lot of people don't realize that which is why we end up with these petty little arguments.

    Well yeah, I love Sonic to pieces, he's literally one of the many fragments of my childhood that were pleasant! So naturally, I'll be a little overprotective of that childhood of mine. At the same time, I learn to let these things go, and I live with what Sonic is today. But does that mean I don't like the series anymore? Of course not! It's a fun game that I love to play and talk about, just like some people like to collect stamps or model cars or fly planes for recreation. My hobby? A blue hedgehog who can run fast. My life isn't dependent on the Sonic universe, no way, but it's still a fun past time.

    Sonic Rush 3

    The Homing Attack is only substantially abused in the 3D games, though; Enough people have said that the move was present in Rush (and perhaps the Advance titles?) yet had an absolutely negligible effect on the gameplay at the end of the day. So why is this a red flag all of a sudden; Why would it have such a startlingly huge impact on Genesis-type physics? Why would the 2.5D graphics and a camera with a wider dead zone have an impact on Genesis-type physics or level design? And when did we ever find out that Iizuka was directly involved in this? I don't understand you sometimes, dude. Sega community managers have rammed clues about the physics back down our throats, although I use the term "clues" lightly because to say that their statements were obvious would be the understatement of the century. Even worse is that the statements were actually specific-- no boost, speed being a reward, momentum, etc.-- not weightless PR statements like "back to roots!" Yet you find no reason to even entertain the notion. Meanwhile, Sega released four or five screenshots and a few seconds of video footage of Sonic just running, and yet from that you were able to determine for certain that the game is running on the Rush engine, or is practically more aligned with Rush than any Classic game. I understand wanting to avoid being burned, but goddamn. You might as well just forget about this game until it comes out and just try it for yourself with that attitude, because it seems to me that you only really listen to the horse's mouth whenever you can spin their information negatively.

    Yeah I know, but it doesn't stop the fact that there's 3 beach stages, 3 casino stages, 3 Eggman base stages, 3 zombie stages, 2 ice stages and 3 city stages. Dino Mountain and the Monkey Ball stages must really stand out... Maybe more track NAME variety, I'll give you Mario and Luigi Circuit but Daisy Circuit isn't really THAT similar to the other 2. Besides the two bros Circuit stages the rest of the tracks are always really diverse, check out MKDS's track list: The only two similar tracks are Figure 8 Circuit and Mario Circuit, the rest all have completely different track themes, so that's 15 completely different tracks and that's without taking the retro courses included on the game into consideration, all of which also had to remodeled. Mario Kart is a franchise with a huge legacy though so it can get away with it, do Sonic R and Drift have a legacy? Nope. Not trying to be an ass or anything, but Mario Kart is a game I'll defend to the grave xD

    From my demo experience thus far, there is nothing more frustrating than going for that tiny shortcut island near the final bend, coming right up on the boost, and having BANJO soar in overhead and SLAM down on top of you, sending you tumbling helplessly into the water. 1st to 8th in one soggy instant. Seriously, out of twelve or so Sonic play-through's, this somehow happened four times. And specifically with Banjo! Why do we always hurt the ones we love? Banjo. Banjo! BANJOOOOOOOOOOOOO! ...Other than that, though, I'm even more sold on this game than I already was. It's been a long time since I played a kart racer that was challenging without making me yell furiously at my TV, and if the rest of the game plays like this demo then we totally have a winner. I am quite eager to try out the rest of the roster! I will be amazed if SC5 doesn't land at least one DLC track. (Admittedly, I have already been amazed by the exclusion or inclusion of certain things over the past few months.) I'm hoping that there are at least some SC5 songs to buy from the shop (pre-DLC). The soundtrack is too varied and too good to not be included in some way! Speaking of which, very first thing I'm going to do in this game is unlock and switch the music for all Seaside Hill tracks. Catchy as the default Heroes tune is, I'll be hearing it a lot over the next two weeks...

They both end very differently, but they certainly do not lose that epic Gurren Lagann feeling of epic, win and awesomeness; all from the one show. I have only just discovered TTGL recently and holy shit was it a fun ride. Stupid, Silly, Epic, Action Packed and most of all, it was honest to goodness pure breed anime. It feels enthusiastic. It's so much fun to witness and you can get inspirational power form a show like that. And don't even get me started on whoever does the music. That is pure, unadultered AWESOME. You can tell just how worked up I am getting that this show is something very special, and if you haven't seen it yet, you need to get your ass onto it asap. He carried that show to be honest. With Gauren out of the picture, they needed someone truly fucked up. You had controlled chaos with Gauren, so they bought in WTF IM INSANE chaos in with the german doucher. When he started breaking Lin Fan's teeth with his gun, that was a great scene. Really showed he was kind of a nut case haha You will not be disappointed my friend. It is a very faithful and kick ass adaptation.

    Both of those were written by Brad Buxer, I.E. the guy Jackson was paying to write all his music for him at the time. Do you really think singing a song is the same as writing one? Really? Are you really that uneducated about how music works? Are you really that stupid as to ignore what people, including what Brad, and Quincy Jones actually say about how the writing process goes for writing a lot of michael's hits? You really must be retarded. (Even Quincy, the guy who produced and worked with Michael on Thriller(widely regarded as his best album) stated that on the songs Michael is credited with, he would call him up and hum a melody he though up for a song, and Quincy would transcribe the melody, write the chord progression, arrangement, hire musicians and then teach Michael how to sing the final project. I mean are you really that stupid as to think that because someone's name is on the album that they had much of a hand in actually making it at ALL!? Do you even have any idea how the pop music business has worked over the past forty some years? Don't argue with a fucking music buff. You've already proven your retardation to me. I hope I never see anything you type again.

    Tier lists have no bearing on what character I have the most fun using.

    Wow. All I wanted was an explanation (although I did say it rather harshly). No need to go spouting rabid comments at me, calling me retarded because I didn't know where you were coming from. Is hostility all this fanbase has come to now? Oh yeah, and too bad. I post somewhat often =P

    Although I feel capable of refuting most of those points, this one in particular requires scathing response. In what part of Sonic 3 & Knuckles did I miss "Sonic hobbles around like an arthritic drunk" Zone?

    Whereas if this was Sonic's Megaman 9, the retrofags wouldn't have anything objectionable that they needed to get over and everyone would be pleased as punch. Also, not every direct sequal makes "going back to the retro roots" a core precept of it's very existance. Whereas this game DOES. Noodlemouse talks the retro talk but doesn't walk the retro walk.

    Then what do you call the stuff that came out for Rock Band 2 for Wii? or (God forbid) Guitar Hero World Tour (or was it the other one? I forget). It can do DLC, it just requires time to make the stuff necessary as S0L said. And dude: Relax! If it isn't 360 related, you go into a tangent. Seriously, this is why you were banned on NeoGAF.

    It IS DLC. The items that Nintendo distributes over Wi-Fi in Animal Crossing: City Folk aren't in the game disc at all. They're completely new data that's written into the game. The same thing is true for Guitar Hero and Rock Band songs. And Capcom wants to add Phoenix Wright into Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, proving that it's entirely possible to add new characters as DLC on Wii. You're the one who needs to do some research. >_>
