    Ever since Sonic Advance 2, the yellow springs magically disappeared. It's like after Knuckles Chaotix, they thought that 3 spring colors was too many, so they removed 2 colors by mistake. Sonic Advance 1 had them though, and that's the last they were seen as far as I know...

    I still think that was the worst "how to make a good Sonic game" list ever made. It seems to not focus on the things that make gameplay good, but instead on nostalgia.

    The folks who made the chart weren't expecting Dimps to build the game off of the Rush engine and incorporate uncurling.

    So if Sonic Team themselves weren't exactly busy with Sonic Colors, things could've been better...

    ...Or worse.

    Actually only 1 of those things, JUST 1 item on that list has been done better than the genesis titles... and that's monitors. Fucking pathetic I know, but Sonic 4 monitors rule! That's an example of good evolution, still classic looking, but in flatscreen form to move with the times. When Sega talk about evolution though they mostly mean making the game look and play like shit, and making their main character look like a hideous lanky streak of piss.

    A secret. >:3
    Not all of it, Super sonic and characters you WANT to play as are good, freeing animals is good, because of the story (yes, that matters to some people), some of the traps effect gameplay, and I couldn't even read the rest, is there a version of that chart with not blurry text?

    Googling "NEEDLEMOUSE HOW-TO GUIDE" worked for me. :P

    Anyone notice the little "Eggman Minecart stopper" thing? Someone should put a screen of it here. I think there's some running AFTER the mine cart.

    You know, I just bought and played Sonic Rush today. If Sonic 4 plays like this or better, I'm perfectly content with the end result. Sonic Rush is fucking fun.

    I personally can't stand the gameplay to Sonic Rush/Rush Adventure. Especially the boss battles.

    Boss battles in this game already look better, and so does the level design compared to the Rush games so I think this game surpasses Rush thus far (new build, not old).

    Trapped in my own thoughts.
    Two stageplays, a screenplay, and an album
    I liked that mechanic better in Donkey Kong Country, since basically you murder your rhino/snake/whatever by taking him past the sign.

    I personally can't stand Sonic Rush's music. I am EXTREMELY glad they took a more retro approach to Sonic 4, though I wish they'd go more towards Sonic CD quality, than Sonic 1 quality. We'll see how things progress, but I doubt the quality in music will change.
     
  17. I recently decided to try Rush. The first zone was OK (not incredibly fun, just OK), but the second one was full of ridiculous bottomless pits that I found too frustrating to be fun. It also bothered me a lot that holding a direction or rolling down slopes was not enough to increase Sonic's speed, you have to use that boost shit... that's just wrong. Since sonic 4 doesn't have a boost button, it has boosters everywhere to compensate. I'll probably find it just as bad as Rush.

    What's the deal with all this spring talk? In the classic games you had to JUMP or LAND on the springs that send you upwards since holding right would make Sonic try and push the spring as if it were a wall. It's the NEWER games where you can run into a spring and bounce even when touching the left or right side of it. If all the new games have automated springs then why are people going "HERP DERP if Sonic is running fast he should keep that speed when running into a spring that launches you upwards cauz momentum!111"

    Because it's bad programming practice to set values instead of calculate them. Also, try going on the springs from the other direction instead of the naturally prohibitive one. herp derp to you too.
