    Pink Wisp and New Level

    The new level is based on Zodiac Constellations, you can see a Red Taurus the Bull and a Green Sagittarius the Archer monuments on that level. Takashi Iizuka's is the man behind this game and you can see his sign a Pink/Orange Leo the Lion on the map screen!

    Just DIE Already!

    Ohohoho, that has definitely happened to me before!! Several times in fact. That boss fight was seriously the worst thing about Sonic Unleashed. You can talk as much shit as you want about Werehog, playing as Gaia Colossus was legitimately the worst thing in that game to me. I was already in a shitty mood after dealing with Eggmanland (although my mood improved a little fighting Egg Dragoon as Werehog), but that just made things so much worse. Soooo much worse. I had to put down the controller and stop playing for nearly half an hour before I was calm enough to continue again it was so bad. Oh, and how can I forget the dialogue: Chip: Dark Gaia's getting ready to do something!! Sonic: Hang tight, Chip! Chip: HURRY SONIC!!!! Shut the fuck up you annoying little piece of shit.

    So they can't afford to take the puppies to a shelter for free, or at least put them in a box at a local shopping centers and adopt them out, but they can afford a camera and a computer to even film and upload this? These people are not poor and backed against the wall. Their government is not significantly archaic. Croatia has animal cruelty laws; They recognize it as something vile to do. Even assuming Croatia was some third-world country not privy to significant westernization, or if this was only applicable to these people, this does not eliminate the ability of anyone to criticize their actions as wrong. Dumping puppies in rivers and laughing about it is wrong no matter how you spin it.

    Lol, really? People are mad that it isn't on the Wii? If anything, SA:DX is a better deal as it has all the DLC and Game Gear games and is probably under $10 used.

    Making your crappy D-pad plus shaped isn't going to make it any less crappy, especially not for fighters. In fact, it's going to do the opposite. He does mention that they're doing other stuff to it internally, but I doubt that we're looking at the next Saturn Pad here. I also can't help but imagine the pad rotating inadvertently while you're using it. Gief and Tager users beware.

    Life before Sonic

    Well, yeah. I don't think many people here have been Sonic fans all their life (especially considering a good chunk of the members here had a good few years of their lives before- god forbid- Sonic ever even existed), and even those of us who've been with him from fairly early on haven't been fans since birth. So, the point of this topic is basically this; what were your main interests and likes before Sonic became a part of your life? What did you occupy your early years with? Okay, I get that liking Sonic doesn't mean you suddenly abandon all your other interests, and as such you probably held on to a lot of those interests, even after becoming a Sonic fan. But hey, doesn't hurt to reminisce! Myself? Let's see. The earliest kind of stuff I can think back to is stuff like Thomas the Tank Engine, Rosie and Jim, Playdays, Postman Pat (typical preschool fare), as well as vague memories of shows like Superted, Bananaman and Danger Mouse, although less so those. I also loved a show called Raggy Dolls (anyone remember that?). Oh, and Family Ness. And Nelly the Elephant. Again, that's all mostly fairly typical preschool fare, I guess. I remember being massively into both Pinocchio and Peter Pan at a stage (especially the latter). Considering I got into Sonic at the age of seven, there was only going to be maybe a 3-4 year window of stuff to mention, considering I'm hardly going to be remembering what I did for fun at the age of two. One odd thing I do remember is that, rather than Mighty Max, I used to get the odd Polly Pocket playset when I was around 6-7. Although in my defence, that was before they became the total tweeny fashion-trash they are today and were slightly more modest and generic. And actually had boy figures included with some of them. Also, fun fact; shortly before I got into Sonic (thank AoStH for that), the odd adverts I'd seen on Channel 4 made me think Sonic 'wasn't for me'. Maybe because the cartoons gave off that irritating early-90s-US vibe, where everyone was an American teenager and said annoying words like 'tubular' and 'bodacious' a lot. D= Thank god that didn't turn out to be the case!

    Metroid: Other M

    ShopTo is an amazing site. And my friend is awesome for lending me his Wii. Ohai guys I just got Other M 3 days before the EU release date. EDIT: Uh... why does Adam have the right to authorize Samus' power ups when he's not even her boss anymore? Samus is independent, her suit is Chozo made, a game device it may be, but it's a pretty lame one. Probably lamer than Samus losing all of her power ups by tripping over in MP1. She doesn't even go here.

    New 360 controller unveiled

    The Play and Charge kit is crazy overpriced by itself. Microsoft will make more money by making it a forced bundle than they would if they just sold the wireless controller. I'm more worried about the fact that with the disc receded, the D-Pad is surrounded by a deep ridge.

    The homing attack.

    Ah fair enough, also after further thinking I agree that throwing HA in to a game that has been touted as a back to basics 2D Sidescrolling hedgehog adventure is kinda annoying because HA ruins the whole classic feel which may annoy people because it's not what was advertised, like the recent remastering of power rangers with the unnecessary additions

    I'd say that example you put down is more to do with people being abusive pricks than backseat moderators. That's straight up flaming. Like I said, I'm aware people are saying they see this shit a lot but again I must reiterate fucking where, plzkthx!? Also, I did not say that this topic was only made to get you attention, I just illuminated the fact that you're an attention whore XP. PS thanks for the blueblur360 thing, I hadn't heard about that one. I'll be looking into it because he got some seriously unwarranted abuse.

    No Sonic 4 on Toky Game Show

    People (like me) whine and whine about the old build fully acknowledging that it's the old build. Nothing's wrong with that. I remeber when last year we were all wondering if Needlemouse would finally be unveiled at TGS. Jumping the gun much, eh?

    Mushroom Hill IN 3D

    Sonic Team are big boys and none of these fan's bitching and complaining is going to bring their staff to tears. You seem to be under the impression that you make up a large portion of the fanbase and that Sonic Team truly care about impressing you. To get people to buy it. They know Sonic 4 is that little delicate spot of unending optimism that classic fans salivate over the thought of. This whole game in general is simply being made to put a pacifier in those fan's crying mouths while they focus on evolving Sonic games instead of lavishing the classics in a slobbery tongue bath. No, no it shouldn't be. If you want to spend the rest of your time plugging in your ears and pretending gaming after 1994 doesn't matter then you go live in that delusion of yours. If you honestly think that the entire future of Sonic's career and the effort of actually trying to fix the messy design of 3D Sonic games is better spent beating a dead horse that every normal person stopped caring about around 1999 then it seems that you've smelted those nostalgia goggles to your eye sockets. Yes actually, I think that they SHOULD be spending their time and finding a formula that really works, and finally having the winning formula that makes Sonic's gameplay really fun in 3D. Then they might venture into other character's gameplay styles and soon enough we'll have an entire vast array of fun and playable character's each with their own unique quirks, but still feel like your playing a Sonic game. But that's just laughably stupid, right? Lets all just hop onto Rehash Flight 101 to the land of Nostalgia where evolution is a sin and spending your life playing the same game over and over will enlighten you and lead you to the promised land. And the fact is Sonic's only been able to get by in 3D on a messy and unfocused formula that doesn't have a definite structure, and it hasn't been 2001 for at least 9 years. You wouldn't make a good doctor with that kind of logic, 'cause with that mindset every patient that showed a little sign of improvement you'd think was instantly cured and send home while you chatted up with the old lady in the cemetery, trying to ask her tombstone out, only to find out later that it was merely a small improvement and that the patient's vitals were still unstable and in need of constant monitoring, and now you have a dead little Timmy on your hands.

    Then don't use it. Better yet, don't play the game if you're just going to spend the whole experience bitching about how bad the homing attack is.

    The URL says Sonic Stadium, but this topic looks like 4Chan! What's going on here?! But just to say something on topic, cause I is a good child , that I have noticed some annoying stuff in the comments. There's always a fight when it's Sonic news and it's kinda annoying cause I only scroll down to see what other people think; not page 4 of the same old: "SONIC ADVENTURE SUCKS SONIC HAS BEEN SHIT SINCE HE WENT INTO THE 3D's" arguement.

    Mosque being built near ground zero

    We're being hateful because we want these people to have the freedom to build wherever they wish within legal bounds? Yep, that's hateful alright. Popular opinion does not deserve respect. No one here has used fear tactics. Some people have used insults, but most if not all of these insults have not been indicative of hate, and they're hardly a "purging of free speech." You can't run to your corner and bitch about free speech every time your opinion gets some opposition. Your opponent has a right to speak out too. This counter-point would have been briefer and more sugar-coated, but it makes me sick when someone gets a little opposition to their opinion and cries about their damn rights being oppressed. Your rights aren't being oppressed; You're acting childish. Even worse is the irony. Many more opposers to the "mosque" have acted in a more degrading, disgusting, and fear-mongering due in part to the xenophobic attitude that has been cultivated by the government and corporative entities in recent memory. You probably got downgraded for your irrelevant mentions of constitutional rights and the long-since-proven-false, also-xenophobic talking point of Obama's non-existent Islamic faith. Yes, because a lot of the fear of this community center (please stop calling it a mosque) is due in part to people conflating those of Islamic faith with terroristic fringe groups of the religion, and the easiest way to draw a conclusion about a Muslim's faith is through their ethnicity. Sooo.... yeah, there's some racist elements to the opposition. No one called you a hateful racist ignorant bigot. You can have an opinion, but we can also hold the opinion that your opinion sucks. First Amendment = two-way street, bro. Also, Obama is not a Muslim. Not all Muslims are terrorists. The fact that you think having an leader who is Muslim is in inherently bad thing even in this day and age says a lot about your character. We don't care how close to Ground Zero it is. We don't care whether the rest of America agrees with us either. Also, I suspect that apology is not sincere.

    Yeah, it really annoys me that people think that having all these characters means the game is bad. I think it's one of these things where it's just become a staple thing for people to say about Sonic. "There's too many characters - it should just be Sonic and none of his shitty friends." Even though S3&K had three playble characters and most people who say this haven't actually played the games themselves. I will admit, in games such as Sonic 06, the other characters did suck. But this was only due to the main gameplay and the engine wasn't very good anyway. In other games such as SA2, the other characters were quite good. Sure, treasure hunting or shooting isn't everyone's cup of tea, but you gotta admit that these modes were created well and worked on their own. And they were a great way to make sure a player didn't get bored of the main gameplay (something I find happens a lot to me in newer Sonic games). But now Sega seem to think that we don't want any other characters at all. Not me thanks, i'd much rather play in a Shadow skin than a rubbishy 'Red Sonic'. But then that's just me. I just really miss SA2 multiplayer and how each character had the same gameplay but slightly different stats and attacks. There's no reason why characters like Tails couldn't be racing against Sonic. Just make him a bit slower but with a slight flying ability. Now if only they could do this with Sonic Colours; would make for a much more interesting experiance... Oh and more on topic, yes, I do miss greatly Tails' and Shadow's speed. But then we haven't played as them properly since Sonic 06 I think =[

    IF A GAME HAS SONIC IT IS AUTOMATICALLY GOOD DO NOT BADMOUTH SONIC HE IS MY LOVER. They're not destined to start a fight if you choose not to argue with EVERY... SINGLE... PERSON... who says that they don't like something about Sonic/SEGA. Everybody has a different opinion on Sonic and just because it's DIFFERENT... FROM... YOURS... doesn't make it wrong. That's why it's an OPINION... not FACT. I assume that you played Binky's game and you didn't get any of them right.

    Mosque being built near ground zero

    Wait what are people objecting to? It's a place of worship, in a country where people SHOULD be free to worship whoever they want. Why shouldn't they have it built there? It's just a place at the end of the day. Yes something awful happened there but it wasn't these people's fault, why should they be persecuted because of some extremists who just happen to be of the same religion?

    the Sonic Stadium interview pointed out no new characters...anyway I'm pretty sure about Metal Sonic to be the only new, just for his popularity these days so we're gonna have: Sonic Tails Knuckles Amy Eggman Jet Wave Storm Avatars E-1000 Shadow Rouge Cream Silver Blaze *Metal Sonic* SEGA characters ???

    Yes! That would be fantastic! Come to think of it... the press release made mention of playable Avatars! Playable AAUK confirmed! I for one also approve of Doctor Eggman's brilliant idea regarding Avatars.

    I imagine Metal Sonic will make an appearance, seeing as he's getting so much love recently and showing up in practically every Sonic game being released now. And I know it'll never happen, but I'd love to see OVA's Old Man Owl show up in his little plane. That'd be hilarious. Especially if it's on fire. That or let Tails use his body board from the OVA. Every little helps, SEGA. People would probably buy the game just for tiny little references like that.

    Sonic Chronicles was basically an officially licensed and professionally produced RPG fangame, complete with all of the frustratingly generic battle mechanics, annoyingly over-present new characters and ridiculous storyline features that everyone's come to expect from such a title. Of course, if you enjoy that form of unforgivably dull, run-of-the-mill, pretentious RPG garbage then you should run along, leave the Sonic franchise alone with those who care for quality forever and go play one of BioWare's other, slightly less worthlessly tedious games in the same genre; namely Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance. If, however, you think that I'm being thoughtless in my slating criticisms, and that you disagree with me, I'd like you to picture the same uncharismatic BioWare trash, only even more dumbed down and monotonous, with even less charm, a budget of zero, and made with unprofessional tools by unprofessional individuals. Welcome to the Sonic RPG fangame. I sincerely hope that you enjoy your stay. EDIT: As it turns out, Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance wasn't even created by BioWare, but by a third-party studio, and produced by their publisher. It turns out, then, that BioWare - despite being, first and foremost, an RPG studio - can't make a decent and exciting RPG for love nor money. And such a great decision it was for SEGA to employ their services despite this!

    Sonic Riders: ZG was pretty cool, the CG was rad, I just didn't like the addition to the storyline of aliens. I don't like aliens in Sonic to begin with, but it especially didn't make sense when the whole of the first Riders game set up the rogues to be descendants of genies....then they go and say "no, no their ancestors were aliens" or alien genies or whatever. As far as the look, design, CG, levels, gameplay and some of the story went - it was all pretty good......I still prefer the first riders though. I dunno, I kinda have this bad feeling that all Sonic Free Riders is going to be is a glorified sales pitch for the Kinect and not actually have a story or anything new to it -besides flapping arms and looking stupid- and their interview didn't really alleiviate that feeling either I do hope this turns out to be a proper game as the Riders series and the Babylon Rogues are great addtions to the Sonic series I think.

    Backseat modding/member conduct

    Lol. Report the people who are backseat modding? As a side note, seeing a few people say the rules should be enforced more harshly is pretty funny XP. It doesn't do wonders for the atmos of a forum to have staffers being strict on the rules; I did it for 5 years, I know. Sure, you can say "just don't be Nazi about it" but 1) it's impossible for forum conduct to be equated with the National Socialist party in the 40's and 2) everybodys idea of what constitutes 'Nazi' is different. So like, if someone is being a total ass to someone else, report it. Making a big ragey topic about how much one is personally disgusted (hello Gnasher) only draws attention to oneself. All I'm seeing here is a big fat "LOOK AT MEEEEEE." XP.
