    There's a winning entry.

    Set 18-25 year old Sonic fan, holding a Genesis 1 or 2 up with a :colbert: face, just pointing at it for a minute thirty (change background location to cheat) and set it to <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C65hL9d1ANM" target="_blank">this music.</a>

    Or if the song clashes with the rules (...really?), break out PUBLIC DOMAIN with some classical piece from Mozart, Tchaikovsky, or any composer of choice.

    And if that is still a problem, fuck, I don't know... Green Hill Zone Knockoff on vuvuzela?

    No cutscenes or additional characters are needed. What a shame.

    One of my friends and I decided to enter this thing. I entered for a chance to play Sonic 4, and he's in it for the swag. All I'll say for now is that we are going to try to do something that involves the rings.

    It all depends if we can get our hands on a decent camera though, since our cameras suck.

    I'll be waiting for the Dreamcast episode. :specialed: But you have to point to the Master System for the first episode.

    Can you guys stop thinking we're the only people who have complained about anything in the game? People all over youtube and other websites have been complaining that sonic is too slow. They can't only listen to our complaints, so stop acting like our opinions are the only ones that matter.

    Not to mention the fact that people at E3, who played the game, said that Sonic accelerated to slowly.
    Really, I think those people have the superior judgement because they played it. Among those people were a few members of the SSMB.

    Is watching someone being gangraped in the prison showers not enough to know you wouldn't like to experience it? The "you haven't played it" argument just doesn't really work.

    Lets say two people gave you their verdict on the game.

    One only watched it and said it looked too fast
    The other played it and said it felt too slow.

    Who would you believe?

    A second or third-hand experience gives you an idea, but a first-hand experience is more valid.

    I love how Jasonchrist attempts to dismiss all talk of opinions in the very same post where he attempts to validate forming an opinion based on secondhand video footage. :v:

    Anyway, there was talk about Sonic being too slow, but keep in mind that even in this context, all Ken Balough said would be done was to make it so Sonic would be able to accelerate to maximum velocity more quickly—which is a fix the game could use anyway, so no worries there—unless they overdo it. :ohdear:

    There's a difference my friend, a huge, HUGE difference between forming an opinion and talking about opinions.

    It's blatantly obvious most posts we make are our opinions simply by virtue of the fact we fucking said them. There is absolutely no need for the "imo", "that's just YOUR opinion", and "everyone's entitled to their opinion" bullshit.

    Where did he say it was "Top Priority"? It could certainly use some changes, and many people who've heard it have said that, here and presumably elsewhere.

    @ jasonchrist

    That's not even what was being said, so your argument is invalid. What you were responding to was a friendly reminder that there are other opinions out their besides ours.

    He certainly has been talking as if it's something that absolutely must be changed without question.

    Well, it is. It's easily the worst soundtrack of any 2D Sonic game ever made.

    Suggestion: Senoue locks himself in a room for a few hours and reacquaints himself with the 3D Blast soundtrack... specifically <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FfG09iLCKsM" target="_blank">this one</a>.

    It's the closest he'll get to remembering his own style since I think he did very little on Sonic 3 (Gumball Bonus Stage music.)

    Well since SEGA comes here for fan feedback, I'd say our opinions are just as valid as everybody else.

    Now maybe if we all pretend to know what we're talking about they'll take our criticisms more seriously than theirs. :specialed: I can dream... :flunked:
