    UltDevilDoom got a reaction from SuperBrandon in How can Sonic sell better?   
    Advertising is one of the big reasons the Dreamcast eventually flopped. Sega really needs to reform the way they attract gamers.

    I haven't seen a Sonic commercial on television since the Shadow the Hedgehog commecrials on G4. I hear that they advertise on kids stations. But that, in my opinion, is a terrible marketing strategy. Sega needs to advertise on other television stations, too.

    To Sega's credit, I saw a Sonic 4: Episode 2 ad on both Xbox Live and Playstation network recently. Getting that NASCAR racer and designing an actual racecar for the racer to use in NASCAR races was a good move as well. These things are signs of improvement in Sega's marketing strategy.

    Sega may be learning from past mistakes. I certainly hope so.

    Huh. Some people are acting like it's a film they go to see in theaters. It's just a fan film. And it could have been better.
     
    Still, it could have been much worse.

    UltDevilDoom got a reaction from Remynaka in Is Shadow the Hedgehog really a bad game? Or was a underrated gem?   
    The wisps have cool powers, there's no doubt about that. But their designs are more than a little uninspired. Sega just gave common shapes arms and legs - and tentacles. Whether they are appealing is another story.
     
    The designs for the Black Arms were meant to be more menacing and have more complex designs than in past games. I was definetly expecting a darker game when I picked up Shadow the Hedgehog. I think that there was more of a design process with them, regardless of what opinions people have of the game itself. Once again, appeal is another story.
     
    Appeal is in the eye of the beholder. I know this because of the flame war this game has caused for seven years and counting.

    True, but at least seeing Shadow beat him up was enjoyable to watch.

    UltDevilDoom got a reaction from ultim8life4rm in Chaos Powers   
    I like the chaos powers. They were somewhat limited in Shadow the Hedgehog in terms of playability, but '06, as awful as it was, introduced more chaos powers for Shadow. Sega really built on chaos powers up until Unleashed. I'd like to see more chaos powers again sometime in the near future.

    When I first faced the Biolizard, it took me two hours of non-stop playing to beat him. I was only 11, but still...

    UltDevilDoom got a reaction from Felix in The essentials of a good Sonic villain   
    I'm glad the whole "Who Am I' thing with Shadow is over. I really want to see him as an anti-hero/villian again. It just suits his character better.

    As for the whole villian topic, I don't want to see just another "world domination" thing. That is Eggman's purpose. I did like Erazor Djinn because he put a spin on world domination with his character and actions.

    I also liked Black Doom because he wanted to wipe out humanity - and was really sadistic about it as well. Black Doom couldn't have cared less about ruling Earth. I'm gonna have a fanboy moment and state that Black Doom said he ruled the universe.

    Anyway, I want to see more diverse villains in the future.

    UltDevilDoom got a reaction from jerry. in Sonic-related pet peeves?   
    Did anyone else read the secret journal of Professor Gerald's diary in Sonic Battle? I read all eight segments, and doesn't make any sense to me. It's why Sonic Battle is not canon. The contradictions are just too big, and we all know Sonic Adventure 2 is canon.

    But...that would mean Sonic Chronicles is not canon too. It's a total mindfuck.

    UltDevilDoom got a reaction from SilJeff in Which fairly recent Sonic games invoked strong emotion when you first played it?   
    Sonic Adventure 2.

    The Dreamcast had just come out, and I remember playing the demo in a department store and getting that "I must get this game now" feeling. Soon after, I was a proud owner of a Dreamcast and Sonic Adventure was mine as well. Have you ever played that game to a point where your live counts cannot drop below 99? I did.


    I was stoked for Adventure 2. I looked for whatever information I could find on the internet. I bought it on release day, and I played it until about midnight. It was even better than the first. It also made me a strong Shadow fan from then on.

    So yeah, Sonic Adventure 2 is my choice.

    UltDevilDoom got a reaction from Chaos Warp in What did Generations and colors story do right?   
    Generations felt slapped together in terms of story, but Colors kept it simple and sweet. Even though Colors had its cheesy story presentation at times and corny one-liners, in most places it just felt...right.

    Still, I want to see a Sonic game with a deeper story next time.

    Sonic 2 wasn't just the first Sonic game I played. It was the first video game I ever played. Captivating is an understatement.

    UltDevilDoom got a reaction from Stritix in Is the lives system pointless?   
    I don't think I would play Sonic so much if it had an inifinte lives system like Call of Duty or Gears of War. It takes away the rush. I like the feeling I get when I have no lives left and I have to beat a boss on this last life or start over somewhere.

    Look, I've said it before. I'm not here to argue. I'm here to talk about the Sonic franchise. I just wish I could do it without arguing so much over the better character and better game.

    Sure, Shadow is my favorite character, but I don't say things like "he's the greatest" or "no one can top him." He has flaws like any other character in the franchise. But I still think he's cool, and that is an opinion that was (and still is) formed over years.

    I try not to offend other people, but even I slip up now and then.

    See, this is what I mean. Don't try to make your posts relevant by trying to make others' irrelevant. I've never seen you come up with an original post. It's pathetic, and being negative all the time makes it even more so. This goes beyond just Shadow. Do what you want and post what you wish, but right now it seems like you are desperate for attention.

    Does anyone remember the first impressions of "DMC: Devil May Cry"? A great number of people (including myself) thought it would be terrible and destroy the Devil May Cry Series, and it's not hard to see why. The hate went overboard fast. I recall may death threats and various other threats being sent to Ninja Theory. I thought the threats were disgusting, but I thought the game also would be disgusting, just not as much.

    Time passed, and after several kick-ass trailers and awesome screenshots, I was hooked. It took over a year for me to get interested, and now I can't fucking wait for it.

    My point is that people shouldn't prejudge like that. Wait for the final product and see what it has (or doesn't have) before saying praises or shitbombs about it.


    I'm not on forums much. It's still new to me, so I guess I can get irritated more easily. I'm not here to offend anyone. I'm here to talk about Sonic the Hedgehog.

    UltDevilDoom got a reaction from Stritix in What did you think about Shadow The Hedgehog?   
    I don't get why some people pair Shadow the Hedgehog with '06 (and I am not talking just about this thread). '06 is terrible, we all know that and we all accept it. But the Shadow game is liked by a fair number of people. Even if you don't like the Shadow game, it's an unfair and overall stupid opinion that Shadow was a problem in '06. Some blame Shadow for the problems that Silver caused. Silver was a monumentally big problem that was coupled by other monumentally big problems that don't include Shadow.

    That being said, I did like Shadow the Hedgehog. It did have its problems, but these problems are not game-breaking. It was an enjoyable experience for me. I really wish Sega would start working with Shadow again outside of a guest appearance. In Sonic Adventure 2 elements (and a few Shadow the Hedgehog elements), of course.

    UltDevilDoom got a reaction from Shrek in Unpopular Sonic opinions!   
    I never played the Nintendo Wii before Sonic and the Secret Rings came out. I had a lot of trouble controlling Sonic in more than a few spots. I played it all the way through, and my opinion is that Secret Rings sucks because of its lousy control system.

    Also, how the hell was I supposed to know that I had to speed break into that giant ball of energy to hit that stupid Genie? There was no incentive whatsoever! Usually in video games, it's not a good idea to charge into a big ball of energy that your enemy throws at you.
