  1. Hello folks. It's been a looong time between posts for me, about two years in fact. As such I thought I should re-introduce myself. I'm Joe and hail from Australia. I've been a life long Sonic fan having first played Sonic 2 on the Master System before upgrading to a Mega Drive. Although I dropped out of console gaming after the Dreamcast I still followed Sonic's career and bought is portable titles (GBA and DS). Having recenlty moved in with my girl who owns a Wii I've started playing those titles and am also enjoying Sonic 4 (I know, contentious -_^) , Sonic Generations and am looking forward to All Star Racing Transformed. I'm also a HUGE fan of Archie's Sonic series. Looking forward to chatting to you all on the forums.
  2. Brilliant! So glad Australia is getting this, I'll be pre-ordering it!
  3. Yes, I'm disappointed that it's not going to be on PC and thus I'm not going to be able to play it.
  4. Yeah, I noticed that. I prey the ??? equals some kind of PC download. Please Sega, don't forsake we PC gamers!
  5. So, if it's going to be a downloadable game, will PC users get the chance to play it? I want to play this so bad, it looks AMAZING, but I don't have any of the current gen consoles as I'm a PC gamer....
  6. I just hope that it's released on either PC or DS otherwise I won't be playing it...

    Doctor Who

    While that does look nice I don't know how keen I'd be for an anime Doctor Who. Anime has never really spoken to me, t be honest. I'd probably watch it because it's Doctor Who, but I don't know if I'd buy the DVDs. It would have to be mind-numbingly good.
  8. JD!

    Indeed it is Max. Thanks for the comment :D

  9. So I got this thing last week and I'm sad to say pretty much all the negative comments are true. If you're interested in reading my tale of woe you can find it HERE.
  10. An awesome colletable statue. Seriouslly. An an awesome new game that I can play on my DS and/or PC.
  11. Just finished reading issues #185 through to the current #204. I really love this series. It treats the subject with such respect rather than jsut looking at it as "another video game." The characters are defined so well and I'm really impressed with how it's evolved passed the "rules" of the game series. I know there isn't a lot of love for Archie's series here, but this is one of the best comics I'm reading at the moment (and I read a lot). Can't get enough!
  12. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 50 posts to view.
  13. Colour me excited! This sounds really cool and I'm going to go all fan boy and say I can't wait. I just hope it's released on a system which I can play it on, in other words the DS or PC as I don't own any of the current gen consoles.
  14. Yeah, I saw that but the included games aren't as good as the other console's. And I didn't want to have to wait.
  15. I've always preferred the fauna levels, Emerald Hill Zone, Angel Island, those kinds of levels. They look so lush and beautiful and are a joy to explore.
  16. I think the answer to this question can be summed up in once sentence; "because we are fans."
  17. I have to agree with you there, both zones are exactly the same. Booooring!
  18. Well, like I say I do have two real Mega Drives, so it's not a HUGE problem if it doesn't work wonderfully. Sure, possibly wasting that money is annoying but it's not going to break me. It's a lesson learned. If worse comes to worse I can try and sell it on eBay or take it to the OpShop. I received an e-mail saying it'll be shipped Monday so I'll let you know what it's like when it arrives.
  19. Well I've never seen one of these before. I've seen the plug and play stuff, but never an actual console. So this is new to me. I originally read about this in Retro Gamer magazine who said that the emulation was fine although they mentioned that some people had complained about the sound. Still, I have two original MD consoles (one I use, one for backup) so if this does turn out to be sub par at least I can use it for back up if both my MDs die until I can geta replacement. Guess I should have researched first before getting excited and buying one.
  20. Oh! My! GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You guys have to check THIS out! It's a re release of sorts of Sega's Mega Drive. It comes with two controllers, has 15 games built in, including classics such as Sonic & Knuckles, Shadow Dancer, Banaza Bros and Alien Storm among others. However, the coolest feature is that it can play MD carts from ANYWHERE in the world! At only $39/99UK ($78AU/ $65.50US) it's an outright steal! I'm ordering mine now! Update: Shipping for the console is 7 pounds which is $11.45US or $13.65AU
  21. Bottomless pits. I hate those stupid, cheating, fall-here-and-you-die things, especially when you are rocketing along with no idea what's up ahead and miss making a jump because you are going so fast. It's just cheap and makes me want to throw the game at wall. But it's not just Sonic games I hate those in, they annoy me in any game.

    Doctor Who

    Doesn't Who continuity give you a headache I remember when a friend and I had a two hour long conversation about how the Classic series continuity works with the new series continuity. Oooh, boy, that was a mind trip! But I love it! It'll be interesting too to see what happens when it's the Doctor runs out of regenerations....if the series lats that long. (Which I hope it does). And yes, Fear Her was terrible. I actually feel Series 2 is the weakest of the 4
  23. This is by far my favorite design and the one I always associate with Robotnik. Honestly, though, the thing that bothers me the most is that they are now calling him "Eggman". Yes, I know it's original name but IMO it just sounds so stupid. "Robotnik" suggests a character, and is kind of threatening which suits him. "Eggman" sounds like a Disney cartoon.
  24. They are very simple, and the dialogue is soooo cheesy. But then I don't play Sonic games for the story, I play them for the action stages. If I wan a really good, full Sonic story I have the comic (which I know some people here don't like, but I love it). So, for me, the story isn't a huge issue, it's the game play.
