    Sonic the Hedgehog... okay, seriously? *grins* In terms of media, I love Star Wars, James Bond 007, Star Trek (sorry), Naruto and a few others. I run, fence and play golf. I also play PlayStation3, PlayStation Portable and Nintendo DS, and am currently writing a Sonic-based fan fiction series right here on SSMB! And I'm always happy to help, so if you need anything, just yell!

  7. played Modern Sonic's version of City Escape yesterday, and can officially reveal that SONIC GENERATIONS is worth every single molecule of hype!

      Also spoke to a SEGA employee who was gushing about the Nintendo 3DS version (and not in an obviously fake PR way, either) which really encouraged me to have a little more faith in the underdog!

  8. I've too many badniks and robots to put forward, but I always adored the EggRobo from the classic era. It really stuck with me from my childhood, being the iconic metal version of Dr. Eggman. I always thought mechanical animals made sense (seeing as they were powered by animal batteries) but when it finally came to a robotic version of Sonic's nemesis, they just looked so incredible. Especially contrasting that blazing red shell against the light green and white of Sky Sanctuary Zone... blimey, that makes me sound rather camp, doesn't it? While I'm on a big colour-scheme trip, therefore, I'll also put forward Metal Sonic 3.0 as being one sexy beast, from Sonic Rivals 2... just that black and yellow paint makes the already-sinister Metal Sonic look even more lethal and mysterious. My least favourite badniks aren't usually to do with design, but more to do with annoyance and frustration in the face of defeat. Orbinaut, in all his various forms, is usually near the top of the list, as are the terrible two from Metropolis Zone... you all know them, Asteron and Slicer. The amount of times I've been thrown from a stupid screw elevator because of some lucky shot (or some bad timing on my part), coupled with a boss battle I can never ace, have led to full-blown hatred of Metropolis Zone. A shame, too, as it has some awesome music.
  9. I recently did some brief mental mathematics, and realised that my PlayStation2 disc that received the most playtime was Sonic Mega Collection Plus, beating my other favourites by days. It was, and remains, a beautiful experience and perhaps the best way of blasting through the classic history of Sonic the Hedgehog (both MegaDrive and GameGear). The music, the presentation, the bonus unlockables... everything about it. And okay, it took a further release to silence and appease the fanboys with Sonic Gems Collection, but at least that was a budget release.
  10. hates being away from the internet!

  11. Sonic the Hedgehog... the original, but my personal weakest. While the concepts it introduced would shape Sonic forever, and I will always respect it for being a genre-changing masterpiece, I personally find it slower and harder. Still worth a playthrough every now and again, but not always the first choice. Star Light Zone is beautiful, however. Sonic the Hedgehog 2... well, yes. It's faster and longer and deeper and innovative and everything, and has perhaps the best soundtrack of the classic MegaDrive era, but I can't call it my favourite. It comes close, though. Damn close. It also introduced Miles "Tails" Prower to the world, something that deserves eternal praise, hands down. Sonic the Hedgehog 3... when combined with Sonic & Knuckles, it becomes an epic of the 1990s videogame culture. But two zones collaborate to ruin the experience: Marble Garden Zone, from the former, and Sandopolis Zone, from the latter. They always bring the near-perfection crashing down for me, personally, and as such cast a long shadow over all the excellent new features. Sonic 3D: Flickies' Island... no, don't look at me like that. I'm serious. I don't know why, but I adore it. So sue me. The impact it had was negligible, many tried to forget it, but when you combine the music (both Jun Senoue's MegaDrive and Richard Jacques' Saturn scores) with the visuals and the excellent boss battles, I wish it was included in more classic collections.

    PS Vita

    So you have to charge the PS Vita every four or five hours... um, so what? Unless you're planning on climbing Everest whilst trying to complete Final Fantasy 47 from start to finish, is battery life really that big a deal? I have a Nintendo DS Lite and a PlayStation Portable. Both need regular charging and it doesn't bother me in the slightest (and I play with bright screens and loud volume settings) because the joy that the consoles bring me far outweights the "Uh-oh, flashing battery warning... better save, quit and come back in ninety minutes once I've recharged." In fact, the battery life of the PlayStation Portable I have (the Slim & Lite PSP-3003 model) is around four hours, with brightness turned up and the Wi-Fi switch turned off. So for something more powerful, with more battery-eating features, to have roughly the same battery life is a vast improvement on battery quality. Personally, I'm not worried about the battery. I'm worried about the videogames, as they are rather the point of a videogames' console. So I continue to save my moneys for launch day.

    Doctor Who

    Didn't they kinda already do that with the Dream Lord last season?
  14. Personally, I'd enjoy Sonic videogames more if they were easy to complete, but difficult to master. Allow casual players to instantly access the core gameplay mechanic and enjoy the storyline right through to the final cutscene, but make side quests, S-Ranks and unlockable bonus content a proper reward for us fanboys and fangirls. I think hunting for red medals is something of a cheap reward system, as it doesn't take any particular skill (save some patience and free time). With the multiple routes introduced in current Sonic videogames, have three maybe easy to use and one supremely challenging, only accessible with the quickest of reactions... something like the timed water gate in Pirates' Island Zone, from Sonic Rush Adventure, where speedy players were rewarded with a shortcut and an extra life if they reached it in under a minute. Several of my friends and relatives who are casual Sonic fans purchased Sonic Unleashed, only to never bother completing the storyline because of Eggmanland and the nightmare of Dark Gaia. I'm all for an epic final stage and dramatic final boss, but does it have to be suddenly and drastically impossible? And while some of us hardcore gamers appreciate a challenge, that challenge can come in other forms. We all purchase videogames fully expecting to finish the storyline, so make that achievement an easier one. Time trials, the aforementioned S-Ranks and unlockable music/artwork/characters, etc. etc. could deliver the risks some of us are looking for. I'm reminded of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, despite it being a lazy sequel. Clearing the storyline was child's play, but has anybody ever gotten a Gold Medal on any of the challenge maps?
