    How utterly disgusting to exploit the goodwill of others in this manner. No doubt a legion of white knights will flock to defend him akin to his equally disgusting girlfriend.

    Unemployed, Mr. Orth?

    There's a strong rumor going around that Mr. Adam Orth is no longer employed by Microsoft. He is an ex-creative director. His slip has been pinked. He is without a job, sans career. Where once there was work, there is now none. His services are no longer required. He's been shit-canned, sent packing, terminated, let go. (He has been, as they say in the business, fired.)

    It all started on gaming forums, then it moved onto general gaming websites, after which point it spread all over the internet, and now it's the top freaking story on Yahoo, the 4th biggest website in the world: The guy who started this all must have had an interesting day at work, to say the least. This shit blew the fuck up like nothing I've ever seen before, in terms of videogame scandals and blow-ups. It's just incredible.

    We've got the SimCity 5 debacle, and the Diablo III mess. Now we present another great moment in Always Connected Gaming history:

    Angel Hamilton who is known to a lot of people as ZillianOP is a 'gamer' who can usually be found playing WOW and Diablo 3. For well over a year now he has been living under the premise as being a hardcore gamer who is paralyzed from the waist down. During his live streaming sessions, he has gained over $20,000 from various other gamers who have supported him. These funds have paid for various items and equipment seen in his videos such as a new wheelchair, PC equipment, games and even to pay for him to move across the country to stay with his able bodied girlfriend who often joins him on his live streams... And it was all a big lie. During a streaming session which many people were watching and recording. Hamilton begins the stream by going to his computer in the wheelchair and starts to play... at some point later, he forgets he's streaming and takes off his headset before then standing up and walking out of camera. He is then seen in the reflection of a fishtank walking around his room without the use of any aids. At this point his girlfriend who knows Hamilton has been faking the disability reacts with "OH MY GOD!" before suddenly coming up with a ridiculous story about a dog that makes absolutely no sense which some people are now claiming to be code for her to warn Hamilton that he left his camera on. Suddenly the camera is dipped out of view and Hamilton returns. Whilst this is going on, the chat box is filled with people asking what happened, Hamilton and his girlfriend claim he fell and that he's alright, however others then point out he did not fall he stood up and walked off. At this point the stream ends. Here is what most people saw that were watching the stream. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=li2pDDRdo0c&feature=player_embedded More info including the chat logs of both Hamilton and his girlfriend lying about what happened.

    Okay, I'm sorry for risking a renewal of the past few pages, but I like how throughout that argument only one person brought up Tails taking a shot from Eggman's mind control ray as part of what Tails did. You'd think something like that would have given Sonic more of an incentive to get Tails off the station, so he didn't have to worry about Tails making another sacrifice like that for him again. Which brings me to another pet peeve: People downplaying or flat out glossing over details and actions taken by a character or narrative for the sake of making their case over how these things are treated. If taking a bullet isn't a big enough action for a character to take, if going to a maximum security military prison isn't enough of an indicator to show how insane brave a character will go to rescue a friend, or if you want to call something that was made to be a cheknov's gun useless, then I question what you would have to say regarding anything about a narrative. That's being so arbitrary and dishonest and I'm sure you know better.

    Sonic-related pet peeves?

    Proving what? He didn't prove himself anything more than Amy or Cream. Having a level or two of "action" and accomplishing nothing else isn't exactly an enviable position compared to actually contributing to the story and having character traits beyond "can fight a robot". I'll admit this isn't a shining moment for him, but he's also an 8 year old faced with a literal nightmare monster wielding a club large enough to turn him into a smear. You're choosing to read the scene in the absolute worst way possible. It's dishonest, so quit it. And while Tails may not be a fighter in the game he was still vital in a support role. It's not the ideal but it's better than the characters that have literally nothing going for them. Sorry dude but this is bullshit. Most of the cast would kill to get even half of what Tails has had in the last few games, even with the problems he's had.

    Sonic-related pet peeves?

    How is he dead weight when in Colors and (to an extent) Generations he's the done who figures out all this shit Eggman's up to? He' the one who made the translator in order to communicate with the wisps, allowing them to easily figure out what's going on, and this.... Is a load of bull, Sonic didn't push Tails in that elevator because he thought he was useless, he did it because he wanted to protect him. Whether Tails could've handled himself or not was irrelevant to Sonic (hell before he was pushed Tails was conversing with Sonic how how THEY should fight him, implying he was willing to get in on the action as well) because he was going on big brother instinct. So yeah, Tails "being treated the worst" is a statement I find utterly baffling.

    As for the whole Arcade thing. Xbox Live Arcade has quickly become the worst of the 3 in terms of dev support. Nintendo especially has completely redone their digital program with the introduction of the Wii U, and allows devs the freedom they don't have with Live. Sony too. For one, they both actually allow them to patch their games without paying 40,000 dollars.

    Well I think it's awesome. Looks like the fan's interpretation but sleeker. The simplified hands and feet match the design style of Pokemon and it honestly looks like a mix of current and old gen to me, just like it should be with something like this. I like that it looks like a crazy ass sentient being way the fuck smarter than you could ever hope to be.

    Sonic-related pet peeves?

    Since we're on the subject of characters, I have a new peeve. I personally feel out of all of the characters whose screentime and relevance that have been shafted in recent years, Tails & Knuckles by far have had the worst of it. I know this is gonna sound biased but good god seeing how far those two have fallen is sad. Going from being Sonic's closest and most prominent allies that could contribute just as much as him, to being negligible side characters that hardly do anything is such a damn shame. Tails becoming a coward that's forgotten how to fight(&fly) and has to rely on Sonic to handle every major thing. Knuckles becoming a meathead that just exist to get smacked around and ridiculed. Shit's aggravating.

    Ok closing in on the last 3 tracks, god damn that was an intense and awesome listen, I think I only skipped one song because I couldn't tolerate someone singing out of tune but that was it! Now for some final thoughts and few shout outs. EAR God Fucking Dammit, your shit was fantastic and I thoroughly enjoyed it all from Ocean Base to That song from Rush that escapes me right now, but jesus christ it really got me pumped your stuff, fantastic work! Alien Your Grime & Vengeance is pretty fucking sweet, that was also some impressive beatboxing and I totally loved the Egg Rocket song too really amazing and awesome work. Urban Must admit, you're one of my favourite musical artist's here, I thoroughly loved all of your work in the album, it was a nice mix of electronica/techno with some hip-hop elements which was pretty radical! Wolfy Honestly, your Reach for the Stars really caught me off guard, very softly sung and very powerful at the same time, you have a beautiful singing voice ;__; SonikkuXM I must admit I really, Really loved your Sonic Boom remix as probably one of my favourite tracks on the soundtrack, I also liked the overclocked remix from Live & Learn, really talented. Faseeh Your Mega Collection remix brought back some serious child hood memories and nostalgia, always loved that tune and you made it sound so freaking amazing you have no idea. Freen in Green Although I personally didn't like some of the music I listened to on Youtube, you seriously changed my perception of your music with this album, you are very talented and the songs you did on this was amazing. Vizardjeffhog Your Prelude to the album honestly got me pumped and gave me chills I must admit, nice distortion effects with the voice echoes! and another nod to Freen in Green for making that epic music to really kick off the album! Blue Wisp/Aptivia I had no idea you were an artist Blue! Very impressed with your collaborative effort with Aptivia very nostalgic and awesome work over all! Masterjace Your postlude was a fantastic ending to an amazing mega album and honestly set me up for another listen~ I really can't go into everyone because I'd be writing pages and pages of praise xD; But each and every person who worked on the album are fantastic and talented people, also a big thanks to BMN for being an awesome Admin and helping out with everything and the site! And a huge well done to all the album cover artists! I've actually set up the covers to flick through to their respective act art work when it gets to each disc, you guys honestly deserve that, nice work! And hopefully my final surprise when I get around to it will leave you all smiling and feeling like real published artist super stars! *grins* you'll see!

    So we've got Ubisoft delaying the much-anticipated Rayman Legends for over half a year just so it can be released as a multiplatform title, Aliens turning out to be feces pressed on a disc thanks to Gearbox not doing their job, SimCity turning out to be one of EA's biggest fuck-ups thanks to it's always-online DRM, and now the writing more or less on the wall that Microsoft's next Xbox will need a mandatory online connection thanks to their bumbling creative director's tweets of blatant ignorance. Something tells me that some gaming heads in the West did not carry their brains with them into the new year. :V

    IDK about you guys but that looks pretty badass to me. I don't really find the whole head thing silly to be honest, I think it looks better than just giving him a bigger brain or something, since I assume that's how you'd 1up Mewtwo anyways, being all psychic and smart and stuffs. So yeah, if it is real and winds up looking somewhat close to that fan interpretation, I'm totally cool with that.

    Well it's a vicious cycle isn't it? Developers are scared their games won't sell on Nintendo systems, so they don't put all their effort into making them good and then complain when it doesn't get attention, or they port one game, don't support it with DLC (like with injustice) and then wonder why it wasn't successful. Fighting games are cool and I'm glad the WiiU is getting some, the Wii got like 2 in its whole life on the market. But yeah, they're not really system sellers, unless Capcom somehow chuck an exclusive SFV on the WiiU and I can't really see that happening. But Wreck-It is right, third party exclusives just aren't a thing people really do anymore. A few gens ago, games typically saw release on one system, sometimes, two, rarely three. Nowadays? Almost any big game on PS3 is gonna be on 360 too, or vice versa. It's a relatively new treatment, and it's interesting to see how the WiiU is or isn't taking part in that due to the usual attitudes. I'm glad the WiiU is getting big third party multiplat titles at all, but at the same time, it could stand to get ports of some stronger more hyped games like Tomb Raider or Bioshock. It's a bit of a shame they skipped out on the WiiU (and maybe it wouldn't have happened if Nintendo got dev-kits out more than 2 months before public launch lol)

    Sonic-related pet peeves?

    And now that they're doing so, we have absolutely boring, unambitious shit. Ultimately though, parsing criticism and the end result of doing so is not that black and white. Some of Sonic 06's themes and cliches that critics hate managed to find their way back into the very next game- realism, humans, demonic monsters, hubs, multiple campaigns/gameplay styles, etc.- but Unleashed is still a significant improvement from every conceivable standpoint of game design and programming. Besides, I don't think everyone at Sega needs IGN telling them that Sonic 06 was awful anyway. I doubt it was released because they thought it was good, but rather because the nature of entertainment is to release shit on time regardless of whether or not you screwed up. You can't fix something forever or constantly start over when you're on someone's payroll.

    Finally listened to the whole album and all I have to say is WOW. Everyone did an amazing job on the album! There was no track I did not like on it. Now to keep listening to it.

    Sonic-related pet peeves?

    Was he really that good in '06, ShtH, or Heroes? He was playable in two of them (to a limited extent), sure, but what good was he otherwise? As much as I'd like to see him playable again, I think Colors handled him better than any game since the Adventures, and neither Unleashed nor Generations treated him badly, even if his role was fairly small in them. Tails is basically the only character outside of Sonic and Eggman that still matters, so to say that he's been treated the worst is baffling.

    It's fine if the glitches don't bother you. The original Playstation 1 version of Tomb Raider was glitchy beyond belief yet it was still a great game for its time, and I still enjoy playing today. But saying you played through Sonic 06 and never encountered any glitches either means 1) you weren't paying attention 2) we disagree about what the word "glitch" means or 3) you never reached the first mach speed section where you encounter the game's first unavoidable glitch (Sonic's wall-jump animation doesn't work in mach speed sections - yet it worked fine in pre-release trailer footage).

    I don't believe the next Xbox will be always-online. America is Microsoft's main audience, and its internet infrastructure is not good enough for everyone to use the console (nor is it for their other markets). It would never work, and there's a lot of experienced businessmen up there who understand this, and you do need ubiquity for a console to be successful. Adam Orth is notoriously sarcastic, and this just seems like an ill-advised attempt at media management. Manveer Heir latter tweeted clarifying it was just a joke and Orth was playing with him. Of course, Adam still acted like an ignorant douchebag: being in a high position and making jokes about "always online devices" in that agressive tone is unacceptable for someone representing a company. Spitting on potential customers is likely to get you a nasty response, no matter which industry you work in. People are assuming this is definite proof that the platform will require a constant connection, but we can't take any conclusions yet.

    I'd personally love for Shade, Ix, and the Nocturnus to be reintroduced in a different game with a completely different narrative and some retooling to their character, mainly Shade. I honestly didn't mind the aliens in the Twilight Cage, and my mind is a bit on a frenzy with what we could do with them. Also, another serious pet peeve of mine I feel like reiterating is character bashing, because it often crosses a line beyond criticism and ends up looking more like trolling when it's provoking fans of that character. I've had enough of that back in 2005, you'd think we could share our criticisms a lot more civil than that.

    I don't really care that you've attempted to stop the current discussion, because you need to know up front that this kind of flaming is not tolerated. Getting so upset over differences in opinion about a fictional character most people don't even know exists, that you need to start telling members to fuck off from the topic, is ridiculousness and immaturity of the highest order. If I see such shit again from you, it's a strike.

    Manami Matsumae who worked on Mega Man 1, 2 and 10 will be doing 2 original pieces of music for the game. She's also the person who created the old sound effects for Mega Man 1, from Mega Man dying to the boss door opening and closing. You can read more here. This is pretty awesome.

    Neogaf found something very interesting... more or less further confirmation that it's an online only machine. I noticed this when the topic was at page 47 but not able to post it here until now... that topic is now at page 107 and I've no idea if this has been debunked yet. I can't get the link working anymore but if you wanna give it a try.... The guy was/is a dev for some studio and his post went along the following lines. "I can't say too much due to embargos. But with regards to the Durango, you'd better make sure your ISP bills are all paid" So people on Gaf did some research... The guy is named Nikolai Mohilchock Here ishis Xbox live score account where he lists what games he's worked on. His Moby Games page. Linked In account. And here is the studio he works at... which has already confirmed projects on both the PS4 and an 'unannounced Next Gen Console.' It's happening guys. The next Xbox is online only. Also think back to the last time the consoles were coming out. Remember how sony had all those rumors about second hand games? They were amazingly quick to debunk that rumor. I think if this wasn't true, Microsoft would have debunked it, theres no way they can't be aware just how unpopular it is? Oh and the Microsoft creative director... yeah he's become a meme. There are tons more of these.... And someone made this....

    Wow, look at EA's latest response. tl;dr: "Let us tell you how wrong you are for feeling the way you do, and why our crappy business practices are fine and you just don't understand." Quoth Peter Moore: So much bullshit. Denying that SimCity's always-on shit is DRM when it so obviously is (trying to call it an MMO to back up the BS), claiming Origin is a legit competitor to Steam when people only used it because Battlefield 3, Sim City and a few other games are exclusive to Origin and force you to sign up to it to play. Worst of all is the stupid and utterly shameless attempt to suggest that the only reason EA won last year was because of homophobia, effectively using the LGBT community as a shield against criticism (LBGT support is clearly a very unpopular opinion on the internet!).
