Only a person who has never been here would make such an inaccurate remark. The 'Burgh is beautiful, and my city could beat up your city. http://tinyurl.com/dz8gkv
Secret Rings had some good ideas, but it suffered from the same things that have held back Sonic since his inception. You play Sonic games for their sense of speed. The combat is weak. It always has been, even in the 2D games, and it needs to be completely reworked. Sonic should be able to just plow through enemies, or something...something that wouldn't sacrifice the speed of the game.
Stopping to stomp on enemies? Come on. Who does SEGA think this is, Mario?
I will be playing this on PS3. This could be GOTY for me.
Opeth is the only band on that list I care about.
Yeah, I'm familiar with Malstrom and his pompous, overly analytical fanboy drivel. His circular argument doesn't make Wii Music any better a video game.
"Pretty amazing that a console released eight years ago can stay relevant enough in 2008 to be bundled with a just-shipped game like LEGO Batman, don't you think?"
I was thinking the same thing. And you know, the funny thing is...the PS2 was my least favorite console from the last generation. I didn't even remotely like the PS2. It had an ugly design, an over-saturated library and exclusives that just didn't appeal to me.
But people still buy the damn thing new? In 2008? Amazing.
Nevermore is the band for you, sir. Check them out ASAP.
On a related note, Metallica has almost regained my respect with Death Magnetic. There are some cool riffs on this record, and it's nice to see Kirk Hammett ease up on the wah pedal for once. Coming from a devout metalhead who's been disgusted with Metallica's post-1991 output, that says something.
It's not spectacular. But it's not a terrible record, at all.
Yeah, I'm not sure this event would've happened this year if not for the E3 fallout. Between apologizing for their E3 showing, getting Disaster in the limelight and this event...maybe they're trying to make amends with the core video game audience.
I'm most looking forward to Mirror's Edge and Prince of Persia. Everything else could get delayed, but most specifically, I chose Fallout 3. Sorry, Phillip! :)
