"Since the suck has been injected into sonic (*fat lady grins at the camera while craig offscreen shouts "nice!"), should sonic just die?"
That was their question of the week for this game. The writer of that question won a copy of some new pokemon game, and craig mentioned "you know you're gonna win a prize when you mention the suck in your question!"
How about when they said that, at worst, the 2D sections were terrible, and at best, "they're like, 'oh this isn't so awful but it's bad."
they're describing the 2D sections here, folks. The Sonic 2D sections. They also said they control worse than Sonic 360 (they said that several times, actually).
