    Nice Remixes.


    These ones made by Teezord can work too.

    These would've worked well in the games

    Anybody else notice that the XBLA leaderboards were recently scrubbed? Which stinks, because I was the (legitimate) score leader in CS1, CS3, and LL3.

    And yet cheaters are appearing at the top again anyway.

    lol

    Yeah I go straight to the forums on this site too. Sorry about not noticing the story on the frontpage. Still though, it sucks to see the cheaters go right back to the top of the leaderboards.

    A lot of these sound like they are missing somthing....but what, I don't know. Your Casino Street Act 2 NES is amazing though. I find it more fitting!

    BTW, stop the presses....I'm getting a Wii....for FREE!!! Brand spakin new. I'm very happy I'll have the opportunity to play/own Sonic 4 in the year it actually came out! So do these downloaded games last indefinitely?

    It's really not worth getting that excited over (instead, look into Colors).

    And they last indefinitely, or until your console shits the bed or you've reached the maximum usage of the internal flash memory- highly doubt either will really be an issue :P

    My Wii's been perfect since April 08, even in MY house, for gods sake, so you need not worry about it shitting the bed. Of course, if you run outa internal memory just store stuff on the SD card.

    oh, and Sonic Colors is good, as are the Galaxy games, Brawl, and MKWii. Oh and World of Goo
     
  13. I got my Wii in November of 06 and not once have I had an issue with it. I don't use as much anymore since I got a 360, though.

    Why do I lol every time someone says that?

    Anyway I know I'm late to the roast but, Sonic 4 is a big piece of dog shit. Its Sonic Rush without the boost. Speed pads, speed pads EVERYWHERE is the name of the game. The theme of the levels are carbon copy of Sonic 1 & 2. This game plays like a bad game maker fan game. What angers me the most is that it has the audacity to call itself Sonic FUCKING 4!

    I wouldn't call the stages carbon copies. I'd call them thematic copies with more boosters and bumpers thrown in. And a couple of U-shaped hills and chains of Bubbles. So, technically the game is different, but it's just not very original. I had fun with it, but I'm not overall impressed by it or anything.

    I loved Mad Gear Act 3, though. That was actually a great twist on an old, seldom-seen mechanic from the original games, couple with a new gimmick I'd never seen before: those slow-motion trays you move around to not fall on a bed of spikes. That was neat. I liked that. Easily one of the best acts in the game. I'm surprised Jim Sterling bawed about that act.

    are you arguing with him or agreeing with him because your points are pretty much the same, but it sounds like you're going after his 'copy' comment.

    Yeah, I have to agree with you. Watching the videos from before the game was released gave me the impression that it was vary similar to Rush, but actually playing the game made me realize that was not the case. Who knows, maybe they actually did built the thing from the ground up...!
