    If you look at the credits, you can see that the theme song was performed by Chris Marlin (Madin? Maolin? I can't tell with the video), music by Jun Senoue, lyrics by "Jhonny" Gioeli, and produced by Richard Jacques.

    Huh.

    That Chris guy did the singing, Jun wrote the music, Johnny wrote the lyrics and Richard was in charge of the music for the game as a whole.

    I would love a rip of the music from this game so much. I can't stop listening to the main theme.

    Looks like I'm putting the Kinect on my Christmas list..

    This is pretty painful to watch. I'm glad I'm not made of money, because I would've been pretty pissed at myself for wasting it on this. Apparently the bike's even more of a bitch to control than the boards.

    I may let curiosity get the better of me if there's ever a port, but...eh. It seems like the story mode is more about doing pointless bullshit like keeping your speed above 140 and destroying X number of objects in the allotted time than actually racing other characters, or is Team Rose's story the only one that's full of shit? To me it just looks like the designers had to think up a bunch of filler to extend the game's length, and did a pretty haphazard job at it.

    I heard Vector and was happy. Then I heard him say "Where's mah money??" and I died laughing. Apparently, Vector is the son of an successful Bronx-based pimp now.

    Also...Sonic sounds alot better in that cutscene than he does in Tails and the Translator.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

    More like Balrog.
     
  7. I'm hoping this gets a soundtrack, as did the previous two Riders games, but since it isn't a high-profile game, it might take some time before a soundtrack gets announced (If ever, depending on how abysmal the sales for the game are).

    Is it really? I find it ten times easier.

    The mission mode of the past two games is interleaved with the story. Compared to the past two riders games, it's actually chock FULL of goodies and modes.

    However, thankfully, there are only HALF as many missions as the past two games. I'm assuming all S ranks gets you Super Sonic, and it should be a whole lot easier this time around.
     
  9. Ugh, stupid Rush-style cutscenes. I hate those.

    Also, Wave said "This is gonna kill our rep as rogues" but the subtitles said "rouges" lol.

    That was probably the lamest ending ever. But Metal Sonic helps. Omochao's voice does not.

    I noticed Sonic Riders definitely has a pattern of nonsensical main theme lyrics.

    You know, I thought this once I watched the cutscene more and realized he was referring to supposed prize money, not detective pay. Balrog indeed.

    It also has a pattern of re-using the same songs (also, slightly edited versions of previous ones).

    Since IRC osmosis has spoilered the identity of the final boss in this game for me, I guess I'll just ask: is there any actual <span style='color:#000000;background:#000000'>storyline build-up to it</span>, or is it just <span style='color:#000000;background:#000000'>"HERP DERP I THROW METAL AT YOUUUUUU"</span>?

    <span style='color:#000000;background:#000000'>Final story starts with "king Doc" saying that all the viewers thought the race was boring so they have to fix his (suddenly repaired) E-10000 B robot to get the money. Everyone figures out it's really Eggman at this point.

    The robot loses and Eggman confesses it was all a plot to steal their racing data. He challenges everyone with his "newfound skill" (it's actually the hardest race in the game)

    Eggman loses and wonders how in the heck that happened, as he feels he wasn't any better at all. Everyone laughs but see the E-10000 robot is smoking. It blows up and reveals that it was actually Metal Sonic the entire time.

    Metal Sonic stole the racer data for himself and passed fake data on to Eggman. Eggman is pissed off, and Metal Sonic challenges Sonic to a one on one race.

    Sonic wins, Metal Sonic runs away, everyone laughs at Eggman for foiling his own scheme and go their separate ways.</span>

    Mega64, I salute your team. You know how to brilliantly mock the Sonic series' moments of failure.
