    O god O god, those visions are starting again... =P

    After seeing Sonic 1 working through a technical level, you'd scream bloody murder at this too. Dunno how that explains my sudden change of heart though...(from good to bad)

    Why don't we all quit bitching, because we all know bitching changes Sonic Teams ideas.

    I think the major problem with this is, as they're claiming this to be a port of the original Sonic 1, people who have never had access to the original cart, or know of/can get at emulation, will think that this is an accurate representation of the origin of the Sonic game series.

    I know someone who fits the discription perfectly.
    Hmm... I didn't think of it like that, but you know, that's a big probablem... I really hope they fix the game before it's released.

    Apparently, the critics agree with that last post. 1.5/5 from GameSpy, citing horrid slowdown, nasty pop-up (I think their review describes it better than I could), and it being based off the Game Gear version (which is incorrect, so ignore that last detail). Play Magazine gave it a 4/10, but I don't have access to that review as of now.

    I was considering maybe taking a look-see at this. At this point, I'll wait for a ROM dump, just to see how bad it is. Shouldn't take long for it to be up on SonAR. Sure, this might be dropping the ball a bit quickly (you know, after, what, two reviews?), but face it: we've all played this game before anyway, and ROM hacks are getting to the point where we have the Spin Dash and saving mechanisms anyway; all we're REALLY missing is the remixed music, which isn't that big a loss, I suppose.

    I've been hounding my sources all day. Nothing. It'll get dumped soon!

    I figured the lag and framerate in the IGN video weren't too bad since it's that way with most of their GBA videos.

    There's also a high-quality video on SegaPR FTP:

    ftp://segapr.segaamerica.com/SEGA_GAMES/S...sis%20GBA/Video

    Sound-wise, they managed to get something even cheesier than the Genesis' own YM2612 (SFX included!). At least they didn't take samples of real instruments, no... they took something even worse! :P (for me)

    I guess the first thing I'll do when I'll put a hand on the ROM will be replacing the actual sounds by the true original ones. I've got Gens KMod and MVSTracker MD now (and VOPM accessorily), so it will not be that hard. ^^

    Now, if I claim that accuracy has never been their main goal when making this port, I've got 1,000 chances to be right. Sad.

    Whoever wrote that IGN review is a fucking idiot if he can't tell the difference between the Genesis and Game Gear versions of Sonic 1.

    YES. If you fix the sounds and the music (and possibly the framerate issue) I will pay you to put this on a blank cartridge. :(

    Who knew you can't spell ignorant without IGN?

    I probably should get back to work on my site someday...
    This looks frightening but I still wanna have the ROM for myself just to try and play the thing. Who the heck did they hand this over to to port? Oh and, is there a ROM dump out yet?

    GameSpy.

    Otherwise, agree entirely - but that tidbit aside, I'd assume they're right on the money for the rest of it.

    I am furiously hounding IRC, Usenet, and release lists. If anyone has access to scene topsites then keep an eye out.
    Everyone's crazy about these fake Wii dumps right now, argh.
     
  17. They're not going to have any good Wii Revolution games until 2007, anyway.
