Your a teacher, a virus has just spread amongst the staff of your school, and as a result, your now subbing for 3 additional classes. Each class obviously has its own homework, assingments, test, ect. Once you get back home its your duty to go over these assingments for grading as to hand them back over to the students, but now, you don't just have your own class to worry about, but 3 more! Chances are, said teacher is gonna cut corners and grade in a half-assed way in order to get these papers back out to the students, even if it means giving someone a C that should get an F.
Lord Nero, wtf are you talking about?
Simple, I feel Dimps is being overworked to the max in terms of the Sonic series. Look back at the "good 'ol days", when Dimps was making the Advance series, thats all they were working on, and even the lesser praised titles shined brightly. This same fact reigns true with the Rush series as well, at that time, Rush/Rush Adventure were the only Sonic titles being produced.
Now lets look at what happened after the PS2/Wii version of Unleashed shall we? You have Sonic 4: Episode 1, Sonic Colors DS and Sonic Generations 3DS all at the same time, AS WELL as Sonic 4: Episode II. Just like the teacher in my example, don't you think that Dimps would be overwhelmed and cut corners as much as possible to make the deadline and make ends meet? I sure as hell do.
If Sega could just bring in more developers to work on Sonic games BESIDES just Dimps, im sure there products would shine bright once more, like they did in "the olden days".
Please note though, im not defending the decisions that Dimps has been making as of late, but I CAN understand WHY they're doing what they are.
