I'm not sure I understand what has happened to Sonic, or Sonic Team in general. On one hand we have really poor looking titles like this and Shadow getting pumped out--but on the other, there's stuff like Phantasy Star Universe and Sonic Rush too (or is Sonic Rush a DIMPS game?). Just an odd mix of quality.

PSU looks amazing.

This...not so much.

Sonic died on the Saturn, stop trying to revive him.

It looks awesome. It has that sense of floaty goodness that Trickstyle had, but my concern is; how skill based is it? How much room is there for actually getting better at it? If Amusement Vision handled this (F-Zero GX, Daytona, Super Monkey Ball) I wouldn't worry for a second, but as it is Sonic Team I've yet to be fully convinced that it's worthwhile even if it's a good game. Not that Sonic Team doesn't make good games, but if it caters for kids (and it could, what with Shadow sort of going in the opposite direction) it may not be as dynamic as something like F-Zero.

Battallion Wars suffered from that. Great game, great premise, excellent art style and presentation, but just way too easy for a seasoned gamer.

I like it, and don't understand why people are having a problem with it.
(I also don't see how Sonic "died")

Seems innovative, but still very much "Sonic".
Sonic racing games are a no-brainer, IMO, as he's all about speed.

He still has a strong fanbase, you know. And frankly, his fanbase doesn't care about what other hardcore or casual gamers say. As long as he's popular, Sonic will live. Accept that fact.

It's like saying Mickey Mouse died a long time ago. Yet he still lives today...

I would give this a chance way before I give Shadow The Hedgehog a thought of a chance.

About the game

    KORNdog it is the sort of thing my work would buy just to make the office look nicer. the boss (apple fanboy) has always hated that the 3D team use PC's because they don't look nice. haha (55 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @alimokrane: i'm not convinced tbh. but as i say, if i was spending 4k i wouldn't be buying that anyway. you can get a better machine and a cintiq for less. (56 minutes ago)

    KORNdog even if the hinge is super stiff it will move if you lean on it. but then you saw the woman drawing on it weirdly anyway, keeping her hands off the screen. does it have palm cancelling? (1 Hour ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @KORNdog: The articulating hinge feels smooth. The display stays in place no matter what angle you choose while the screen stays steady even as you press down on it. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @alimokrane: how can you be sure? there is no clamp system like my cintiq? which locks in an angle and makes it rock solid. (1 Hour ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @KORNdog: It wasnt meant to answer your question. It was just more info as you replied :) I am sure it works just fine re your question (1 Hour ago)
