Oh. Well if you want, you can watch the cutscenes of Colors and see for yourself. That's what I did. Generations is supposed to be some kind of "improvement" over Colors, and since I don't find much appeal in Generations anymore, I never found much reason to get it.
So how did you learn about Marine then?
Sonic is what we could call a tryhard. The definition is in the term, where he tries too hard to look cool and funny, but he tends to just looks cheesy because of how forced it's appears. It's like the case of Shadow in his game, where they had him swearing and using guns and vehicles to look dark and cool, but it comes off as silly and cheesy. That's where Sonic himself seems to be heading, and that is NOT a good place to be.
More or less. You never played Colors?
Yeah, Marine lives in the Sol Dimension on Southern Island. Wait, you never knew that?
Pretty much. You know the protagonist sucks if people are rooting for the antagonist to win.
Most of these one-shots I never did care for. Never cared for Chip, but I would take Amy over him. I watched the cutscenes from Colors and Yacker just seemed pointless by pointing out tasks to take care of that Sonic was already doing, and I would take Amy over him (or it). The only one-shot I genuinely like is Marine the Raccoon, though, her one-shot status depends on whether or not we see the Sol Dimension again.
Overly forced, huh? Why do you think that?
Yeah, Knuckles and Shadow were originally planned to be in Unleashed, but they never made it for unknown reasons.
I really want Amy being involved with Sonic's adventures. Tails bores me and Sonic's nauseating to me now. Amy is the only one of those three I genuinely like, and she could actually help keep Sonic's cocky attitude under control.
That's how I felt about the boost in Sonic Rush. At least it's gone now.
Oh boy. They might have been better off revealing that werehog earlier. There would be outrage, but at least it wouldn't be escalating near the release date. They seem to be doing better at that with Lost World so far, but we'll have to keep observing. Did you ever watch the story of the game? Also, how did you initially feel about the boost formula?
But then Yuji Naka left after the 06 disaster, so they ended up going through with it. That right?
I also heard they wanted to explore alternate gameplay with only Sonic. This was likely so they could avoid using other characters altogether due to the 06 disaster. So how long before the release date did they keep it a secret?
Iizuka was the one who thought the werehog was a good idea, and Yuji Naka thought it wasn't, right?
I had that feeling with Generations. I used to like it along with the Rush games, Sonic 4 and some other modern titles after 06. Then I went back to play S3&K, Advance 1 and 3, and remembered what made me like Sonic to begin with. Then months after I bought Generations, I bought and played SA1, and that basically broke the camel's back, as it had almost everything I liked that Generations and the modern titles lacked, like story and playable characters (to an extent), and spindash. I ended up disliking boost, what they've done to characters, Solo-Sonica even more, I ended up liking Sonic himself less, etc. I think I also started to become kind of bitter and frustrated with Sega, especially after Sonic 4. I don't really trust them too much either after what I've been hearing of what they seem to be doing concerning their other franchises.
It was because they would hold off on revealing actual gameplay until the last second, was it? They didn't reveal the werehog until later, did they?
I kind of just went along with it. I thought I was a pretty naive Sonic fan back then. Now I think how they to make Shadow's game look dark looked kind of silly. It seems unnecessary for Shadow to use guns since he's been shown to be capable enough on his own, and his chaos spears kind of make guns redundant.
What made you think Heroes was what made Sonic lose what made you attracted to him?
Anyway, Heroes was fine. Back then, I was kind of eager to play as Shadow in it, since I never got to play as him on handheld titles until Sonic Battle. However, I think I was stuck on some part on a carnival stage that I didn't know how to get passed with Team Sonic, Team Dark, or Team Rose. I ended up playing as Team Chaotix quite a bit so I wouldn't have those problems.
As for Shadow's game, I thought it was mostly ok. The guns and swearing did seem kind of odd to me at the time, but I didn't really feel bothered by it. I didn't know about the controversy about the game until I became more involved with the franchise and fanbase over a year ago. The gun gameplay did kind of feel odd to use since I don't think there was a targeting system, so I think I preferred to stick with melee weapons along with the homing attack and spindash.
My memories are a bit hazy about these games, so my feelings about how well they played may be different now.
"What were the other two?
For me, Heroes for PS2 was my first, and Shadow's game was my second. Those games were only rented so I never finished them."
Yeah, I posted the top part in the wrong location. I've done this like over 5 times. Sorry about that. ^^;
Ah, I thought so. It's like that in most FPS games I've played with sprint.
Anyway, what was the first PS3 game you were given on your birthday?
Also, what was your first 3D Sonic game?
