    Probably a dumb question but are "Avatar shoes" something in the game, or are you talking about something unrelated there?

    By the way, you should make a neutral flying chao. They're pretty.

    Shame there's no Action Replay PSO game where you can get a Tails chao on the PS3 version. Or any way to get the jewel chao, I love the saphire chao...

    He means the Sonic shoes for your xbox avatar. You get rewards avatar after 5 and 10 hours on story mode.

    This is where SEGA could've taken advantage of the whore called DLC.
     
  4. Well, that's a dumb way to unlock them. Just go stand in Station Square, leave your Xbox on, and go to work/school.

    At least I've got something to look forward to if I ever decide to buy this, which I probably won't since I already have it for GameCube.

    Oh. I don't know much about XBL, being that I've never owned a 360.

    The problem there is that chao die, and it would piss off a lot of people if they paid $5 for something and it vanished on them. Now maybe some egg generator or something or some room that resembles the GBA's garden. I would buy that.

    Although Tails chao don't die so I would pay for one. (At least I don't think they die. I saw one on YouTube that was 25 - that's five times the age any chao can live for - so I assume they either don't die, or live for a very, very long time. It's odd they can't breed though...)

    Now if only they would sell SA2B, or at least its chao garden, and a way to port chao between games. I'd pay for that. :specialed:

    Wait, I don't remember getting anything for playing for five hours. I just unlocked the shoes after ten.

    You get a Sonic Adventure t-shirt at five hours.

    Looks better than the old ones Polygon Jim posted on page 15.

    Guess they spruced them up a tad between April and the game's release.

    On my butt in front of the computer. Where else?
    I'm working on working up the willpower to work on learning how to make my own Sonic fangames. Not quite there yet.
    ...It's not as bad as Super Smash Bros. Melee's unlocking requirements. :colbert:

    I'd replay DX for those shoes.

    What about battle's gamma?


    I tried the demo on XBL yesterday. seems allot more glossy then I remember DX being but that may just be me. these "NOW LOADING" screens are reminding me of a certain game for the 360 that we didn't have fond memories of.

    But that DC style SA1 skin for DX I would want for the PC. rip plz?

    EDIT: why is it that the XB360 demo for SA1/DX is 1.50GBs but the PC demo (which is basically the SAME THING) is only around 500MBs?

    Now really? Avatar items? I wouldn't mind Sonic's soap shoes for my avatar if a SA2(B) port gets released... Darn, they just had to port the same game for the 3rd time.

    When you download a trial XBLA game you actually download the whole thing only with a great deal of the content locked.

    Tails/Knuckles/Amy/Chaos Chao are immortal. They don't die unless you beat them to death.

    Huh, I missed that unlock somehow. Weird. Oh well, I prefer the SEGA shirt I got when they rolled out the All-Stars Racing DLC.

    Alternatively, pay $5 for the ability to buy a Tails Egg from the shop. Hey, it works.

    Well, I've completed 4 out of the 7 story modes, and can honestly say this is a buggy piece of shit. I don't know what they've done, or whether the PC version was always this bad, but the PS3 version is a trainwreck. Horrendously bad load times in places, which must be very heavy on the CPU because it actually locks the console up at time until it's done. The weird part is, the load times kick in at random. I can run between the same 2 screens 10 times over, and at least one of those times will have a depressing load time. The other times, the transition is almost instant. The music for the adventure hubs are broken, sounding like a scratched CD and sometimes cutting out completely. The collision in some places is a lot worse than I've ever known it to be, especially in the Chaos 4 battle, where I found myself stuck inside the graphics many times. Add onto that all the bugs and glitches that have gone unfixed during this port, the broken camera, poor VA and everything else, and I would say this is a bigger failure than Sonic 06. Even nostalgia doesn't save this release.

    SADXBLA>SADXPSN confirmed.

    Seriously, as far as I could tell, the XBLA version ran at a pretty steady pace and load times were never an issue. The only flaw that stuck out was that you never saw your characters flee the damaged Egg Carrier, but that's hardly an issue worth bitching about.

    I wouldn't get ahead of yourself there just yet, I want someone else to confirm that it is a port problem as opposed to a problem on my end. I've been suspecting that my PS3s HDD could be about to die a horrible death, so that could account for it. That's part of the reason I'm highlighting the flaws, to see if anyone else can relate to it, or whether I should start looking for replacement HDDs.

    A bunch of people elsewhere have both the 360 and PS3 versions and are finding the PS3 one to be vastly inferior.

    Of course the PS3 gets the inferior port... now I certainly won't buy this if the bugs and abnormalities are this bad. What a disappointment.
