You can do it Sega! You can join the ranks of Bubsy 3D, Superman 64, and E.T. We believe in you />/>
They already have.
God that's depressing.
No, we must go deeper. Those still hold elements of a game that shockingly some can enjoy on a non-ironic level. Those two games are more akin to the Room. Oh ya it's awful, hilariously so, but yet it could be worse. Birdemic is an abortion. Maybe we should go deeper than the three games I listed before. We need Big Rigs Over the Road Racing.
It's like that episode of South Park where James Cameron goes into the depths of the Ocean to raise the bar, only to find that it was so low because Randy Newman was keeping it there.
The last thing I want is something that horrifically bad. We are at the point where the franchise is in such a state that people have started claiming the series was never any good to begin with, and I read an article today suggesting that Sonic should just stop being in games and stick to cartoons.
I'd really like another good Sonic game, more for the sake of the brand than my own enjoyment. I'll always enjoy the classics, but I'm fed up of the series being a complete joke and having the defend my position all the time.
While all we really have is a name, I'll try and keep this on topic. I've got an iPhone 4, which is a bit outdated now, but Runners should run fine on my iPad. I'm hoping that I can just pay for the title and enjoy it, something like Super Meat Boy Forever, but I know that SEGA will really want some of that sweet sweet 'freemium' ass. I'd be cool with a F2P version and a paid for 'stop fucking bothering me' version.
I'm assuming the name 'Runners' is significant, since they didn't call it 'Sonic Runner'. I'm guessing there's multiple characters, it would be cool if there were differences between them.
