  1. I would love fixes before more content. As I've said, the character screen outright is a crash-the-game button for me (on Android). So until then, I have all these rings piling up that I can't even spend to level up characters >_> I'd also love them to fix "oh I lagged and forgot my physics" but this is a Sonic Team game here, that's part of the experience sometimes.
  2. Yeah not to burst your bubble but the game is clearly meant to be pay2win and the red ring system like that makes it pretty obvious. It's a typical mobile tactic and I somehow doubt that SEGA/Sonic Team are gonna balance the game away from giving people who put money into the game (unless you get lucky on your earned free red rings). Personally I'd rather they actually fix the game on Android, like you know, the crash the game button being the "Level Up" button to access the detailed characters screen!
  3. Yo hi been a while. Figured I'd try and see if anyone has an answer here while everyone is collecting candy if little animals. Has anyone worked out how to stop Runners (on Android) from crashing? I.e. I have almost 500k rings now since Zazz and I would really like to use them to level up characters but the moment I hit those screens, the game crashes :V Rest of the game works fine (well, now. When the Zazz event was on I couldn't actually claim my rewards from beating him!).
  4. Right, ignoring the joys of console elitism, SEGA's audience for at least Sonic has sat on the Wii. It's likely to shift to the WiiU with stronger Nintendo releases. We (The Sonic Fandom or just people complaining on the internet) aren't SEGA's biggest breadwinner. Cutting a potential audience yes, but not it's biggest.
  5. I was thinking on this and BlueBlood certainly pointed it out, even if he didn't mean to. SEGA lacking a publisher here in Europe means someone has to, Nintendo obviously gave the best deal while SEGA went "Well we kinda make the most money with our biggest franchise there..."
  6. I doubt that's the case. There'd be a lot larger waves if that was the case, why would SEGA still pursue mobile interests if Nintendo had garnered such rights? It's likely a short term deal that will get reviewed by both parties down the line, whenever that is.
  7. You might not be but god damn there's a lot of people who are. I'm in a similar situation in the end, other than I may be able to play the 3DS version, once I move out from where I live now, I actually lose access to both 7th and 8th gen (As my housemate has a WiiU) games. I'm hardly the most impressed either. But some of the anger I've seen over this decision is absolutely daft.
  8. An honest question. Other than people who are just outright Anti-Nintendo here, lets draw up a hypothetical situation where SEGA decided it's next Sonic game isn't on the PC but was to release it as a multiplatform on all three next gen consoles. Would you guys still be whining because SEGA put Sonic Software on an Eighth Generation console instead of the current Seventh? Or if it was as ASRT's release went, would you all just be whining in two years instead? Does this all come down to them supporting an 8thGen console, anger against Nintendo or just flat out refusal to buy a new console?
  9. I think you really need to look at the tenses involved. Why would a game published November 2012, be part of a deal that involves games later this year? Plus how many times have people not seen "unannounced game"? Scrap that rereading I think I get what you mean now.
  10. It's more cause and effect. The majority of the Sonic fandom online likely isn't key to this, whereas the majority of the target audience is. The majority of money SEGA earns off Sonic comes from Nintendo Releases, the majority of their target audience (Young kids to early teens) play mostly on the kiddy/casual/whatever console. It's highly likely as we transition to the next console generation that SEGA's profits would indeed still come from Nintendo, it is pretty much a gambit that will pay off for SEGA. Meanwhile other games that SEGA are developing have a target audience that has performed well off Nintendo consoles but perhaps poorly on Nintendo consoles, as such will have development for the other consoles of the next gen. It's marketing as daft as it sounds. People are basically complaining that SEGA's putting their stuff where they get most money, I assume these people also don't understand how businesses that work for a profit work? Also Hogfather, I honestly really would not measure game success off our country. We're not really a good barometer for it at the moment, Europe as a whole sure, but the UK Videogame Industry is suffering a little from poor sales in general here >_>;
  11. I'll be honest, I've always had more trouble with nVidia than I ever have had with ATI (Bridging onto AMD, the later driver updates were AMD branded), the only reason I switched to the current card was because my old ATI wanted to keep on truckin' as it slowly set itself on fire and my housemate had recently upgraded his own PC. :B For the most part it's generally user preference and previous experience will bias people for and against. Also money. :B
  12. As you don't live here and unlikely to care much about our politics, I do need to make a point of this. No party will. Some cases it's because they can't. There have only been select Thatcherite policies that have been repealed. Yesterday New Labour admitted that while Labour (Which was a hell of a lot more socialist at the time) fought tooth and nail against her, that today's party actually agrees with some of the things she did. That's right, Labour, our democrats to your republicans, openly agree on who they used to fight so strongly against. Even the Liberal Democrats agree in some places (That thank god it's generally her green policies when she actually championed global warming etc, until it became very politically left and not in her favour). But it's the fact Labour now agrees with a lot of her actions. We have two centre parties, and they're gradually becoming identical. Labour, Centre left is lurching to the right and has done since Thatcher became Prime Minister, and The Conservatives, Centre Right, is lurching the left after Blair. They both will not touch some things that John Major and Thatcher brought in. Hell there's some Blairite policies they won't repeal too. The problem is now people will generally not vote "against" Labour anymore. Even as they themselves bring in more of the same and gradually policies will start getting confused. People will think it's a tory policy when it was labour etc. Eventually it will come to the point where the far right will get in because people will realise this. >.>;
  13. Mr. Badger's Showdown in the Sky honestly reminds me a little more of a Touhou track honestly >.>

  14. There's more to it than what Hogfather mentioned, but that's very true about the coal towns and the ports. There's a lot of anger north and up in some places that just got crippled by Thatcher, just because of the way she shifted money too, a lot of northern towns and cities which had already lost their industries (Blackburn for example, cotton industry died well before Thatcher) suddenly lost money and cut services for it's citizens, that and she viewed the north and Scotland as scroungers (And the Tories still do). Meanwhile, under her the rich got richer while poor people suffered. Given the North being exploited as is and suddenly all their economy is stripped of them. they got hit hard.
  15. It was probably the official torrent that is openly posted on the page Speaking of the torrent, I assume more than me will seed it for a while? I'm more than happy to seed it for a bit (seen as I'm not doing anything shady =P), but I'm not becoming the only other seed besides TSS itself XP
  16. Well that was fun, can see where TSS was struggling: http://twitter.com/DarkOverord/status/321392434175148032/photo/1 Time to listen though now XP

  17. I wasn't kidding when I said a lot of people hoped she'd go before Bin Laden.
  18. Actually I found it overly disrespectful that people celebrated the deaths of both of them. Full on bad mouth her. But to essentially hold a party because she's dead over 20 years since she was outed is just plain disrespectful.
  19. That's the thing though. She doesn't. She did a lot of terrible things to the country. But she died senile and honestly not knowing half of what she did. Remember this when someone you supported died and then has a large gathering of people going ding dong the warlock's dead.
  20. *watches his download speed pretty much hit 0* But hey, enjoy my ~20kB/s up other TSSMA2012 torrenters :P

      Yeah, I tried downloading it and the download failed immediately. :P I'll have to try again later.

      At least the player on the album's site works fine.

  21. A lot of people view a vote that isn't for Labour as a backhand vote for the Tories. Mum constantly went on about it (Not that she agreed with it), granted back then the irony of the phrase is hilarious, "A vote for the Lib Dems is a vote for getting the Tories in the back door". Yes, I appreciate it is all very silly now with the Con/LD Coalition (Though the Tories would've formed a minority govt. ANYWAY)
  22. Actually, I doubt that. The most ironic thing is that while she may have that legacy, it's certainly one of the furthest back of what she did. It is not for having a different set of genitals that today's politicians talk of her. It IS because of her actions in the 80's. Actually that's why I've been keeping an eye on the news, today and tomorrow are great days for companies and politicians to let loose something which will get out eventually. Loud press days are the best days to do this thing. Though the UK Govt has Easter Recess at the moment, so we've not really got the government pushing anything through at the moment.
  23. Haha, you have to remember that while Blair may not have been as polarising, he did quite a lot. And he honestly did a lot of what he promised too, much like Thatcher herself. He was also maybe charismatic like Thatcher was back then, maybe not to us who disappoint of the right, but he certainly was to the left. Let us put it this way. Thatcher got in the same way Blair did, they smashed the previous government's hold on the country by a landslide. People still remember when most of Britain went Red in 1997 as much as some remember it going blue in 1979. He raised the minimum wage, he raised child benefits, he paved the way to the government debating equal marriage now, even if it's tory led... Granted, I don't think Blair would in the same fashion as Thatcher. It's clearly because Cameron loved her as a politician along with many, many, many Tory Backbenchers calling for it. However, lets step back and think about it... Oh.
