Topics I've Started
19 April 2009 - 03:05 PMYes, this thread is about the remix of Aurora Icefield from the Sonic Gems Collection OST. Now, I like the song. I love the smooth jazzy feel it has to it, and the singer's voice is actually pretty nice. However, there's one thing that's bothered me ever since I first heard this song... What exactly is he supposed to be saying? Sometimes, I begin to wonder if the song is even in English. I have Googled it, but only to find silly meaningless babble (this one almost made sense until the end, but I still doubt it's anywhere close). I even tried slowing it down in Audacity to try and understand it better, but I still can't make it out too well.
So, any lingual experts out there who can crack this code? I'm thinking of uploading the slowed down version to YouTube to see if anyone there can make anything of it. I just have to know...
01 January 2009 - 08:00 PMBoth critics and fans really seem to love what Dimps have done so far. Sonic Advance is considered by some to be a "Sonic 4" of sorts, the Sonic Rush series seemed pretty successful, and reviewers even seemed to prefer the Wii version of Sonic Unleashed. In a certain sense, I can almost see why. While the company has had its ups and downs with the games, they seem to have an interesting idea of what direction the series should take. I begin to wonder what would happen if Dimps had developed games like Shadow the Hedgehog and Sonic Next. Could they really have been better, or does it even matter? If Dimps was behind all of the games from now on, do you think there's some possibility that they'd be recieved better?
Not even supposedly big name BioWare could develop a game good enough to make everyone say "yes", but Dimps seems to have all sides of Sonic-dom under their wings - the critics, the newcomers, and us veterans alike. Well, what do you think of Dimps?
I personally would like to see more 3D games by them, as they seemed to handle Sonic Unleashed quite well. The stages were well-sized, not too short but not too long, and the Werehog sections seemed to have more traditional platforming than the seemingly more combat-oriented PS360 version of the game.
25 November 2008 - 04:48 PMA sequel (or prequel, for that matter) to Sonic Unleashed would be pretty sweet in my opinion. I really like the whole theme of taking real-life worldwide locations and interpretting them in the game. It adds a ton of variety into the game, and I wouldn't mind seeing another game done in the same style, but with different areas. Here's the best one I could find so far:
Like Apotos, this would be based on a more obscure coastal city. Like Mykonos, it also has a bustling nightlife (which isn't really shown in the game, though). There are also some jungle-ish areas of Marmaris, I think. Feel the rhythm of some cultural Turkish music (albeit Amen Break-ized) as you zip along this coastal village by day and slash your way through it by night.
Hoping this kind of thing is okay. So, what locations would you like to see?
EDIT: Found a better quality version of that song, if anyone really cares.
21 August 2008 - 12:36 PMIn three years, it will be Sonic's 20th anniversary. Now, it may not sound like anything special, but this means a couple of things, and is an important landmark for the series. For one, 20 years is often considered the official timespan of 1 generation. What do you think Sonic will be to the next generation? Will he have the same effect on the next generation as he had on ours? Will he still be cool to the children of the future? Lately there has been a lot of talk about changing Sonic's image. It seems fairly obvious that SEGA are trying too hard to change Sonic to make him seem cooler and failing hard. How could that effect the next generation, though?
In three years, SEGA's next move could make all the difference in the world to the franchise. It's not just about "saving the series" or anything like that, but how kids will view the series. There are so many different, interesting turns the games image could take in terms of how it will effect kids, who it will effect, and what the "fanbase" could possibly turn into. With RPGs like Sonic Chronicles popping up out of no where, perhaps the series could rake in more female fans? The display of demonic creatures and violence in some recent games may change the thoughts of both kids and parents in the future. There was a thread here about people's first impressions on Sonic. When we think about Sonic, we think, "whimsical, fast, cool, blue, 'dude with a 'tude', etc.". What will be the first thing that the next generation thinks when they think of Sonic? Will they think of him as "futuristic", "sword-wielding", "babyish", "inappropriate", just plain uncool, or will they think nothing at all? It's really something to think about...
For all we know, Sonic could be the next Barney, or even the next Awesome Possum to tomorrow's youth.
27 July 2008 - 09:42 PMSorry folks, no overall-wearing plumbers this time around.
Yep, this time in 2D. You can control the discus and javelin to collect rings and dodge Eggman balloons... I have yet to actually play this, but I hear it's not bad, if that's really what your into...
