  1. I knew my post would be the subject of debate eventually. Didn't realized it'd be this soon. I fail to recognize a need to cite anything I've said. While the amount of talent or skill that the aforementioned individuals possess is up for debate I can without a doubt say that Sonic Team have been pivotal and key in regard to maintaining a direction that has for the most part remained concise and true to the origins of the series. This especially holds true as of late.
  2. In regard to the OP's question, I'll be willing to assume yes. In fact, if anything from the sub series captivates a greater interest it's safe to bank on Sonic Team proper looking to further develop and apply those areas of interest into the main series and/or move to a conjunction of the two series. I'm giving the benefit of the doubt to both parties and any third parties involved they'll do what's most practical on all points. In regard to splitting, abandoning, or replacing Sonic Team proper, that's a definite no. It's not practical from a viewpoint, financial or otherwise, to let go of an established and talented group of people, some of which have been working for years, some even decades, that have consistently been employed and as such a valuable asset to the parent company.
  3. Personally I don't mind snow myself, but that's more attributed to the fact that it occurs rarely where I'm at. Last time it snowed at my level was five years ago give or take, and previous to that was ten years ago. Anyhow whatever this part of Cali gets is nothing compared to what I've experienced on the East Coast. Got snowed in once in Staten Island where I was staying in NYC, what a mess to shovel a path through the door.
  4. I wonder how this guy feels. EDIT: Tagged for size, and because it's kinda gross. Like a total dumbass, no question. Note to self, consider twice before etching pop culture icons onto one's self, or live with regrets. Actually, I take that back, it applies to tats in general.
  5. I'm generally content with most of Crush 40's tracks. Tracks in Adventure and Adventure such as "Open Your Heart" and "Live And Learn" have rightfully earned their place in the hierarchy as far as music in the series goes, but even some of their later work, such as "Sonic Heroes" and "What I'm Made Of" is alright, despite the former track arguably being somewhat tacky. In my opinion tracks from Shadow The Hedgehog once again showed that Crush 40 was capable of belting out some radical tracks that combined elements of other genres while staying true to their sound. Hard to believe some aren't fans of "I Am" or "Never Turn Back", though this is likely somewhat because of the connotations to the game, which is highly ignorant in itself, but I digress. After Shadow The Hedgehog they still contributed to the soundtrack of Sonic The Hedgehog. As time progresses Crush 40 doesn't play much part in the soundtracks of recent games, and one questions as to why, but it's clear they've left a great impact on the series as a whole. Other tracks from the series I enjoy are those from Tony Harnell (feat. Ted Poley), such as "It Doesn't Matter" and "Escape From The City", of which are cheesy to an extent (though not as bad as later work), but being a fan of their other acts, TNT and Danger Danger respectively, it's not shock. They stay true to their style and that's what counts in my opinion. Another artist in general I like, yet isn't much a contributor in the series, is Julien-K. "Waking Up" is quite underrated as far as Sonic music goes, but I put blame on Electronic Rock being more of a niche than anything else.
  6. All opinions aside this is clearly free advertisement for CEX. Quite honestly it cracks me up to see such strong responses over the actions of both parties.
  7. The holiday is quite contentious in my case. I don't look at the holiday in any religious notion, and the commercialized bastardization of the holiday is also disheartening to look at. If all else throughout my life it's been a time for gathering between myself and others, whether it be with family, friends, or colleagues. Perhaps some of said gathering wasn't at will, but the majority was, and even a cynic such as myself has grown to appreciate the affect of a corrupt holiday, which glamorizes consumerist debauchery and religious fallacies, has on us all. As I stay here and reminiscence I can't help but feel the least bit contented remembering the good times and bad of past years. Not so much a feeling of nostalgia, but one of yearning, a desire to return to times past. Simpler times at that, of giving, of gathering, of general appreciation of life. As time progresses though I can't help but feel disconnected. Whether it be the age factor, distance between myself and my family, or other things entirely, I continue to fall out of the holiday. However because of that I won't ruin anyone's fun this season. By all means I encourage everyone to celebrate however the choose, even if it entails doing nothing at all, such as myself.
  8. I'm not big on the holiday, though I've always thought the riffs in this piece were radical.
  9. For what it's worth, to an ever growing number of people holiday's don't mean jack shit. Take that as however you'd like. Speaking as someone having been in the retail and another miscellaneous service field I was more than happy to collect a double overtime pay rate, in addition to my regular pay, though just the regular pay would have sufficed. Work sure beat being at home wasting my time drinking like no tomorrow or bullshitting while visiting family, pretending to enjoy each others presence all in the name of tradition. But hey, I'm a proponent for equal accommodation, so I'm sure others would gladly work that day. Just so happens that the conglomerate Walmart doesn't attempt to hire many seasonal workers and as such the workload is shifted to the regular full timers. It is what it is, considering how that company functions elsewhere as well.
  10. I've never been big on traditional anything so I can't say I look forward to any celebration, but because I'll likely be stuck in the house the specific Thursday I'll probably do something different for dinner. Perhaps a good wine on the side and a dessert that calls for some liquor. Yep, doesn't get any better. As for the Friday after I might go browse and see if I find anything to my liking. I'm an insomniac so doesn't matter to me.
  11. Bought the game with the intention of gifting it to my brother, ended up playing it a week or two. Not all that bad considering how wide the availability of the game was, especially when even to me it was a foreign feeling playing a Sega title outside of a Sega console, Gameplay and story could've been better. I much more enjoyed the premise and handling of the two prior Adventure titles in comparison.

  13. For those who aren't fond of coffee I'd advise making your own brew at home and buying out. Even a cup from a fast food place or even a convenience store is going to be more refined that what can be done with simple household equipment. If you're looking for the energy rush try it again, you'll find something eventually. I strongly recommend espressos for those who still feel otherwise, all the caffeine in a smaller and quicker serving. Nevertheless coffee is an acquired taste. Drank it regularly though it became a daily thing when I was 10 and hit Junior High and dealt with a lot of bullshit that attributed to stress. It was a way to take a breather from my long commute on transit, assignments. social crap, and other issues I faced. Ironically enough when these problems ended in High School I slowed down with the coffee. Now, I don't drink coffee as much as I used to, mainly due to the fact that my coffee maker went to shit and my espresso machine crapped out and I'm not justifying a purchase of new stuff, as well as the fact that I can't seem to find a good standard stove top instant coffee, Folgers is bad but man that Maxwell House shit is horrid. When I do get the chance to get my hands on the stuff it's usually bought from elsewhere. As far as chains go anywhere that serves Seattles Best is a go to and good in my book. In addition I like to support my local independent coffee shops and have located at least a handful in my nearby towns. There's this radical place close to me that has the best stuff around, from Espressos to Lattes to Cappuccinos and all else in between (smoothies, teas, even a sizable lunch menu). All around nice place to visit: http://www.back2thegrind.com/
  14. Hardly deserving from a lawsuit in the sense that Buxer carried over his own material and improvised from there. Unless of course it was without the consent of the others he was working with, which would be an entire different situation.
