What was the point of those half-dressed women? Whoever said the show was very testosterone based earlier in the thread was right.
That, and from the hour or so I bothered to watch, Nintendo was barely touched upon. Now, I am not a Nintendo fanboy, but it's kinda disheartening to see the main attention go to every Shooter title they could find that's coming out. Nintendo wins were in the pre-commercial break "ALSO WINNERS OF ___ CATEGORY ARE" section.
Ah well, that's just me I guess, no one forced me to watch. (Thankfully)
What really bugs me about this quote is the "which may or may not be a new 2D Sonic." bit.
It was clearly stated in the trailer it was 2D, what's the deal here?

Just got the Jan. '10 issue of OXM, and I couldn't find anything about Project Needlemouse. Just peachy.
Well, I guess we've always got the Feb. '10 issue to look forward to. Maybe Sega just wasn't ready to spill information until it was officially 2010. Which means there's still less than a month left for us to expect new information. Just don't expect to find any info in the January issue of OXM.
Sorry about this, everyone. I guess Sega's gonna make us all wait a little bit longer. Which could be good thing, if you think about it. This could possibly be one of Sega's best-kept secrets in a long time, which could make Needlemouse even better than we might have imagined.
Just gotta wait 'til January, I guess. In the meantime, everybody send angry letters to OXM!

Yeah, it'll prevent people from bashing at some screens, without even knowing enough about the actual game itself.

If it was a secret we wouldn't even know of its existence. I don't understand how them being hush hush about it also increases the quality of the game.

The way I see it, Sega might be taking this project far more seriously than the Sonic games they've done in the past few years. This means that not only have they been stepping up the security of this game's information, but they may also be stepping up the overall quality of the game-- they might actually be striving toward designing a Sonic game that truly looks (I don't mean with pixels), feels, and plays like the classics. Thus, Sega must feel that this project is so important to them that they're going to wait to surprise the fans when they feel the time is right, and no sooner.
This makes me hopeful, because if Sega truly does have such a mindset, it means this game might end up being a true gem after all.

And yeah, I get that "dizzying intellect" thing a lot. Of course, I might just be unconsciously trying to make up for getting everyone's hopes up over nothing.
