  1. Looking forward to it! What I really want to see in this game is Lara's character evolve further towards something of the like that we had in Legend. I've found her characterisation over the past two games to be really bland, generic and humourless. I really think Legend, Anniversary and Underworld did a great job of making Lara witty and intelligent, ruthless but likeable. Here's hoping we get less uber-serious Lara in this one. Also would love to have her globetrotting again, but I very much doubt that'll be happening.
  2. Is Tomb Raider (PSX) and it's PSX sequels still good?

    I was introduced to the series through Legend, and really loved the Legend/Anniversary/Underworld trio. I recently bought the PSX games on eBay and thought i'd check out TR II, which I'd heard great things about. I have rarely felt as frustrated playing a game as this one, primarily down to the controls. I got up to the oil rig and haven't gone back to it, and I'm not certain I will. I just find the tank controls to be so unfun, especially coming in after playing the later games with much more fluid controls. I do like the overall art and music direction in the older games, but I can't say I enjoy the gameplay. If they were to receive the remastered treatment, the controls would be the first thing that would really need an overhaul.
  3. Frog Forest is just a really nice stage.

      The best part of it is the bottomless pit and slippery controls.

  4. Not enthusiastic for the Sonic movie. It's a rare thing for a movie based on a game to turn out good, and I'm concerned the content of the movie will influence that of whatever game we have coming in the future.

      @SaberX So... as usual? Aside from the terrible writing, but cheesiness is kinda a regular thing for Sonic.

      It will only influence the game tie-in. But if it's successful... there may be a series of those.

      When has this ever happened? Seriously in every licensed movie I can think of off the top of my head the movie and the original media are considered separate canons.

      @Blacklightning I am primarily thinking more along the vein of Sonic Boom, whereby we had to endure  a disastrous Wii U title and 2 mediocre 3DS outings before they got the hint that it wasn't what people wanted.

  5. Still in the camp where I'll take a Sonic-et-al-only racer than another SEGA one. If the All Stars Racing series has taught us anything, its that the Sonic content will just continually rehash the same tired old locales because they're still trying to push as much fanservice (despite the fans being sick to the back teeth of seeing checkerboard hills...) into the couple of stages they can give to Sonic. Also, it kinda miffs me seeing all the other SEGA characters brought into the current gen... when many of them haven't had a game in a long time. Want me to be excited about Blaze from Streets of Rage tearing up the street? Like... give me a new Streets of Rage.
  6. To this day, no Sonic game trailer has hyped me as much as the TGS '06 trailer for Sonic 06 - Say what you will about the final product (Which I still really enjoyed), but that trailer was very well put together.

     

     

  7. I'd rather have another Riders than another ASR. I'm not exactly relishing the idea of being handed more Seaside Hill, Death Egg, Sky Sanctuary and (NEW!!!) Forces-inspired Chemical Plant.
  8. Workin' away on projects!

  9. The reveal of the custom character. I’m not saying that it turned out to be a completely disastrous idea, but it is not a direction I want taken. When that was revealed, it was incredibly jarring to me.
  10. I'm not expecting anything regarding a new game as of yet, and I'd be fairly concerned if this was the case. Unless it's something more towards the side like a HD Sonic Adventure or Sonic Riders 4 or something.
  11. I definitely think Robotnik sounds cooler and a bit more realistic, but I'm very happy with either. I don't consider either to be superior in the grand scheme of things.
  12. Finally got a switch for Christmas - I love the art style in Breath of the Wild, it really gives me Ghibli vibes!

  13. The intro to Infinite’s theme sounds like a scene transition from Real Housewives

  14. Nice, now we can finish the majority of Forces' stages in 30 seconds instead of 60!
  15. I wish poster companies/stores did some of those Maxi posters for Sonic. I have a frame and it'd be really nice to have a big Sonic Forces poster on the wall :(
