    Well, aherm.
     
    The real answer is that while nostalgia may be a big driving force that kept people following the franchise even during its darker years, the fact is that, no, our love for the franchise itself is most certainly not based entirely on nostalgia. The classics may not have been genuinely perfect, but they were absolutely spectacular games with groundbreaking ideas and a brilliant formula for level design. And while the Adventure games may be victims of age, that doesn't mean they weren't amazing at the time, and I still have a lot of reasons why I think they're pretty awesome even now.
     
    That article is so stupid and condescending that I couldn't even bear to read the entire thing. It's not even about his opinion - he's just a complete ass.

    Thought of this stupid idea in my notebook in school on Friday, started animating yesterday evening, and finished this morning.  As a web animator I felt obligated to do a Pokemon cartoon at some point.

    It's a very bad idea. If your car gets blown up then too bad. Again it's GTA.

    Well... I'm now on the bad sports list for two days because...
     
    I destroyed my own personal vehicle.
     
    This game is a broken mess.

    I'm looking at these reviews and... I'm not getting what they mean about "bad controls"
     
    The controls in this game aren't "bad" they're "different" from previous instalments, outright calling them bad is ignorant when the controls are finely tuned to what you need them for, they're tight and responsive and they do the job more than they ever will need to.
     
    I honestly don't get why people are lambasting the controls in this game, there is seriously nothing wrong with them besides maybe not being quite finely tuned as the 3DS controls I've been hearing, but entirely writing off the game or telling people to avoid it because "controls aren't very good" is an outright lie, and I will personally challenge anyone who disagrees otherwise.
     
    The controls are solid, fluent and flow perfectly with what the game sets before you, the only time I will outright say the controls are horrendous is when using the wisps, because fuck the forced motion controls on Asteroid and Eagle, otherwise writing a game off for something entirely optional as the wisp's garbage controls and collectively including Sonic's gameplay into it is down right ignorant and completely false.

    Vectorman reacted to SilentDoom in Sonic Lost World Reviews   
    I don't think this is a control issue but rather a design issue.  Level's are often constructed around bottomless pits or have very precise platforming segments.  The controls are in no way worse than Unleashed's.  If you put Unleashed Sonic in this kind of level design any sane person would rage quit the game.  The platforming would be almost impossible and unbearably frustrating even to the most patient of players.  Heck the same could be said about Colours and Generations Sonic.  Low speed control in that game is vastly inferior to that of Lost World, and mid air control is basically non existent.  
     
    I am really, really struggling to see how the controls of this game can be perceived as atrocious even when trying to look at this objectively.  I can see the various level design flaws, moments of frustration that people would have (I personally had significantly fewer than a number of people, but that's because I regard myself as quite a patient gamer when it comes to these sorts of games and usually blame myself for these sorts of issues as opposed to the game), the fact that the game may feel sluggish to some people comparative to past Sonic games but poor controls is something I simply cannot see.

    Ok so since the patch has totally buggered up the online, I'm playing the single player...
     
    Kifflom... what the fuck where they thinking!? I'm 3 hours and still the mission is going on!
     
    And yes I know to pick option C with this one for the best reward.

    I love how Rockstar is trying to put order in a game built on the premise of escapist Anarchy.

    Vectorman reacted to Doctor MK in Are the chances of Sonic going back to Boost-gameplay higher now after the reviews for Lost World?   
    If SEGA are smart, they'll look carefully at the criticisms made about Lost World and refine them for the next game.
     
    If SEGA panic and throw everything out the window, we'll end up with Sonic the Boosthog: Episode 4.
     
    Place your bets folks, place your bets...!

    It's a thread about circlejerking because some intern threw together a lazy video for the purposes of circlejerking.

    It's all very existential.

    Reading the Destructoid review this stood out to me.

    Jim gets it. I'm glad it's been pointed out in an actual, written review. Take notes, Sega.

    I don't get some sites praising the game and then destroying it. Also i don't how these people are writing such bad reviews. Like seriously....ugh

    I finished the game myself and i don't agree one bit with some stuff.

    For me the game is around 8/10. They need to work on a few stuff for sure. Like the wisps & the parkour. It can get in your way sometimes but overall not bad.
     
    This game shouldn't get anything below 6.5/10 and that being really critical.
     
    In anycase just to let you know they won't abandon this gameplay style and direction. They did the same with Unleashed. They went to Colours & then to Generations. History gonna repeat itself.

    Design for Eve's companion. No name yet.
    I wanted to try a more serious anime/manga-ish look for my style, since I'm getting more into anime these days. This won't be the main staple of my work, but I might expiriment with it again.

    If anyone is doing any of these money glitches, might wanna knock it off.
     
    Rumors going around that bans are being handed out. Nothing solid just 'my friend said' kind of thing, and a few youtube commentators claiming they can no longer get online.
     
    Not sure if this is happening for real or not, but probably not worth the risk anymore.

    Well looks like something might be happening.
     

     

     
    Not my guy but. Looks like something is going on.

    And one more thing.

    I've said it before, and I'l say it again: as funny as Sonic can get sometimes, nothing will ever top the unintentional hilarious awkwardness of Sonic Adventure's cutscenes.

    I think posting others' fanart to just poke fun at it or such is against the rules if I'm not mistaken, so I'm gonna go ahead and point out a glitch...
     

     
    This.
     
    This glitch, pretty famous for appearing in SomecallmeJohnny's Sonic Adventure review, occurs if you manage to complete an entire run of the Dreamcast verison of SA1, without a memory card in the controller. That's right; all 7 stories in one sitting and you're rewarded with this. Easily one of the most hilarious glitches in the series in my opinion.
