    What the... hell? This is too cool for a piece of shit like Free Riders. Again, what the hell, Sega?

    I respectfully disagree, sir.
    That is the EXACT plot of Sonic Heroes, just now with hoverboards.
    And I didn't like that plot the first time. :(
     
  3. Agreed. And also with less giant monster of the week.

    Gotta disagree on both points there, Greg.

    The game only seems to suck because of the lack of controller support, so the incredibly questionable Kinect movement is mandatory. The plot is bad because like Fro Nitro said; it's essentially Sonic Heroes with hoverboards. :v:

    Hey Aquaslash, you bought Kinect. Is it possible for you to upload some gameplay to Youtube? It's been like a whole week since this game was released and, unlike Colors, no one has uploaded shit showing gameplay with different characters and stuff.

    I would if I had some sort of video capture device. There are a couple of videos though on youtube, featuring Eggman, + - Metal Sonic, and Super Sonic.  

    There's also a guy doing a complete walkthrough of the game. He's beaten the whole hero story on that so far.

    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.
    Though I'll likely never play it, I am vaguely curious. How would you guys rank it compared to the other Riders games?

    I know there wasn't much of a story but....
    + - ...Anyone find it strange that Shadow and Rouge didn't get bludgeoned by the “supa power of teamwork”? I mean they practically got away with murder.   How does karma work in that universe?

    You get away with crap if you have thousands of rabid fangirls who think you're so cool or show a fair amount of skin and be seductive and are masturbating material for young teens.

    Just like real life. :v:
     
  10. This proves Sonic fans will _always_ find something to bitch about. Instead of praising the good gameplay, or saying it needs work here here and here, you're all bawwing over the STORY.

    Chill,
    The game play, level themes/design, and music style are similar to the last two games and the Kinect its self is pretty much a souped-up Eye Toy. Also a good portion of the ad campaign for this title was focused on the multiple characters and the new voice actors and yet they decided to do without any plot, or character development.
    There is little else to talk about, really.

    Working on my art!
    I thought the gameplay wasn't good, or at least it's not only because the Kinect doesn't do a good job recognizing movements, or that may have just been those couple of reviews.

    Either way, I don't see why the story even matters. In fact I think it would have been for the best if the game simply had no story and just had different cups to play like Sonic and Sega All Stars Racing.

    So supposedly this game has Blaze voiced by Laura Bailey and Knuckles voiced by Travis Willingham? It's what TVTropes is reporting, at least, but being a wiki that anyone and their grandma could edit, I'd just like to confirm.

    ...although, if that's true, then whenever we get a scene where Blaze sets Knuckles on fire (sure it hasn't happened yet, but it COULD), then + - Lust's getting Roy Mustang back   . :P

    + - You're talking about a corrupt government agent and a Knight Templar that only stopped just short of destroying the entire world because of a slight jar in his memory. Sonic has placed more than a few designated heroes/villains into the series before (eg. Shade, Omega and to an extent Silver get away with being dangerous and occasionally irrepetant sociopaths because they occasionally help the heroes, this is even more jarring in adaptions with similar characters like Snively or Nack/Fang who are depicted as far more slimy and monsterous for it). Granted I'm mixed whether this is for better or worse, since I don't want these two being full on goody goody sidekicks to Sonic either.  

    Bella's Blaze already done that before though if I'm correct. Doesn't 'the strongest being on Earth' suffer the Worf Effect enough to have it happen twice over?

    Of course if they give Knux a hat I might pay to see it happen...

    All in level voices for every character, in crystal clear audio

    Also converted to WAVE format for your convenience. Should come in handy for all your fangames/mods/collections. This includes E-10000, Metal Sonic, and Super Sonic, who makes a REALLY good Scourge.

    Also, there's a "CHAOS CONTROL" in there for whoever wants it.

    Already downloaded. Can't wait to hear how silly these voices are going to sound. I'll edit my post in a few minutes to post reactions.

    EDIT: So I've heard everyone. They're just short vocal grunts, so of course they're going to sound strange. The whole sense of bravado from the characters overall in Riders doesn't help that.

    Out of all the grunts, + - Metal Sonic sounds the best. I wish they would've given him some kind of scratchy, crackly robotic voice, but the fizzling and whirring electronic noises work just fine.  
     
  17. I'm listening to Knuckles' lines right now, and the one where he says, "Man... Got careless", the "Man" part sounds EXACTLY like the VA for Goku.

    Maybe, but the "got careless" sounds just like Roy Mustang. Which makes sense, being the same actor and all.

    [insert giddy Fullmetal Alchemist fanboy giggling here]

    Meanwhile, I heard Edward's VA, Vic Mignogna, wound up as... Omega. I have no idea how the hell that one'll work.

    There were voice clips of Omega in Colors DS. He sounds pretty close to E-102 Gamma.
