  3. Happy Vaginal Exit Day!

  4. What makes you think I haven't been disappointed with the Sonic series as of late?
  5. What do I want to see in the next Sonic game? *More playable characters than just Sonic. Seriously, they've been doing this in nearly every game for the past five (going on six) years, and it's gotten old. *The return of deeper, more story-driven plots. I don't know about anyone else, but in just about every modern Sonic game as of late (especially Colors and Generations), I've found the storylines to be incredibly underwhelming.
  6. Admittedly, I haven't played the game myself, but I have been watching some Sticker Star footage on Youtube lately, including that of the final boss, and I have to say that this game turned out to be a major disappointment. In fact, I'm so disappointed in it (along with all the New Super Mario Bros. rehashes) that I'm about this close to just giving up on the series entirely. I've tried to be as open-minded about this game as I possibly could, but the more things I learned about it, and the more video footage I saw, I found myself getting less and less excited about it. This game, in my opinion, is an absolute slap in the face, due to the fact that they went out of their way to remove so many things that made the series so great in the first place (after they had originally presented the game as a welcome-back return to the original formula). It's like they've completely forgotten what this series is all about, and this is coming from someone who thoroughly enjoyed Super Paper Mario (and has beaten it several times). Honestly, what was Miyamoto thinking? What made him think it was a good idea to just take everything that the previous games have established, and just throw them out the window? Sticker Star doesn't even have half the charm that the first three Paper Mario games had.
  7. Ah, I see. If it was, then my apologies. But Iizuka has still been known to say weird things like that in his interviews, too.
  8. I've heard about the Iizuka interview quite a few times over the years, and up until now, I never saw it for myself. Having grown up with Knuckles' Chaotix and thoroughly enjoyed it like the rest of the classics, I just cannot find the words to describe how much it utterly sickens me how they're going out of the way to pretend that game never happened. Not only that, but Iizuka outright insults peoples' intelligence by claiming that they were new characters, simply because they were given a redesign. Going by that logic, I guess that must mean Modern Sonic, Tails, Amy, Robotnik, etc. are entirely different characters from their classic counterparts, too! I can't say I understand why so many people are buying into this, considering the fact that this is the same guy who claimed that Casino Street (and the other Sonic 4: Episode I stages, too, if I'm not mistaken; I'll link to that interview if I ever find it again) weren't based off any of the previous Zones in the series, and tons of other similarly false claims like that one. In other words, this guy has a history of telling utter lies and BS in interviews that only serve to insult peoples' intelligence. Strangely enough, though... I'm not sure if this was mentioned already, but during the Last Story of Sonic Heroes, Vector somehow seemed to know Knuckles, as well as having knowledge of his "powerful punches", even though they supposedly never met prior to that moment.
  9. I find Sonic CD's Japanese/European track to be overrated. While it's not necessarily terrible per se, it's not nearly as flawless as all the fanboys make it out to be. Sonic Colors (Wii) and Generations are also overrated; the latter game was especially a disappointment. Even though I'm far from being a classic fanboy, I have a passionate hatred for the "Dr. Eggman" name, and consider it to be one of the worst names to ever be thought of for a villain. Despite their flaws, I actually liked Shadow the Hedgehog and Sonic the Hedgehog 2006 ( the latter only to a certain extent). I also enjoyed Sonic 4: Episode I, despite the physics issues. On the subject of Sonic 4, I don't think Jun Senoue's music is nearly as bad as many people say it is. I like the Nighttime/Werehog gameplay in Unleashed (360) better than the Daytime gameplay. I've grown tired of nearly every game nowadays only having Sonic as a playable character.
  10. According to The Taxman, that was done intnetionally. I have no idea why, though, since the Good Future track that Spencer Nilsen composed was designed to be fitting for both the stage's atmosphere and the Metal Sonic race.
  11. I never said that now, did I? Nowhere in my above post did I say that hoggy liked the Jap/Eur track because of it originating from Japan. As Asagi pointed out, I'd be a hypocrite for saying something like that, since I've already made it perfectly clear in my original post that I do have some degree of respect/appreciation for the Jap/Eur track, and that I often find myself alternating between that and the American one on a regular basis whenever I play the 360 remake. The point I was trying to make, is that hoggy, as well as several others I've seen throughout the web, seem to hate the American OST solely for being a replacement track, not because of the fact that it didn't come from Japan. Even back in the day, when the game was first released, critics were given a Japanese copy of Sonic CD first, and then gave the US version a lower a score, solely because of the soundtrack change (as stated in this interview).
  12. A topic like this is better-suited for a poll, but apparently, they've been disabled on this forum for some reason. I can't say that I'm sure why, but...whatever. I guess this'll do. To answer the topic question myself, I happen to prefer the US track, but unfortunately, in a lot of places I've been to, it doesn't seem to be very well-liked. Whenever the subject of Sonic CD's music is brought up, many people seem to prefer the Japanese/European soundtrack, and are quick to label the US one as garbage for being different from it. Let's take this for example. Seventy-three people voted in the poll, and the US track didn't even have half the amount of votes that the Jap/Eur track had, and I honestly don't understand why. In my opinion, the US soundtrack has the Japanese one outclassed in almost every way. My reasons for preferring the US track, aside from nostalgia, is because of the songs being more atmospheric, and fitting the stage environments and the general mood a lot better. It's especially apparent with the Bad Future songs, with many of them sounding a lot darker and sinister, and generally doing a better job at conveying the feeling of a ruined, apocalyptic future. Plus, I love the type of musical variety that many of the songs had, ranging from rock, jazz, and others. I also happen to think that the soundtrack was very unique for its time, and really showed what the Sega CD was truly capable of. Now, don't get me wrong... I'm not saying that the Jap/Eur soundtrack is terrible by any means. I like that one, as well, and I often find myself alternating between the two soundtracks in the Sonic CD remake. Lots of the songs are catchy and conveyed the stages' mood in its own way, but at the same time, I can't help but feel that it's just a tad overrated, but maybe that's just me. What are your thoughts?
  13. Since we're posting Toonami promos, one just can't leave this one out: At first, I only used to watch Dragon Ball occasionally, but the moment the King Piccolo saga aired, I was hooked. Every day I came home from school, I would patiently (or impatiently) wait 6:30 for the show to come on, and it was well worth it. Although, a few months later, it started airing at 5:30 instead, which was pretty convenient for me. Everytime I watch this clip, it always brings back a lot of memories. It's a major blast to the past.
