    Gotta hand it to the artists though, the Sonic sprites look like he ran right off the cover of Sonic 2.

    I'm reading that link on SonicRetro, the irony is staggering.
    set on showing the programmers there that he can outsmart any attempt at breaking his game like he did with the original games in, he’s lost site on what really matters in the grand scheme of things

    Actually, that explains a lot.

    Which link? The one in TSR's post? That one seems to work just fine for me...

    I played the alpha and was thoroughly unimpressed with it. It all clicked when I read in Guess Who's post on Retro about the system requirements being comparable to Crysis of all things.

    Like TSR I pretty much gave up hope of this project being worthwhile a long time ago. Shame, really.

    The AVGN reminisces about Sonic the Hedgehog. It's not a review, just him getting nostalgic about it.

    And in the video playing behind him, there's something weird going on with the font at the end of Green Hill. Maybe it's an emulator, but he doesn't usually use em...

    I'm not even sure what weird font thing you're talking about, I am completely missing it.

    The text saying "Green Hill Zone" is the font from Sonic 2, not Sonic 1.

    I've been playing Generations a couple weeks now and I'm gonna say something I never thought I'd ever say: I wish Nintendo would make a Mario game as good as this Sonic game.
    Both NSMB games were a joke in terms of level design and difficulty. They cash in on the nostalgia factor, but don't seem to care at all about what actually made those classic games great. They can barely hold a candle to the original SMB, let alone 3 or World.

    Generations was clearly made by people that wanted to both honor the franchise and make a great game.

    Have you played 3D Land? The first half of the game is pretty easy, but it actually has some difficult levels in the special worlds. Although it does have a weird obsession with putting a raccoon tail on everything.

    I haven't played it yet, though I have heard that it does have some difficult stuff in it.
    The raccoon tail thing is part of the problem I mentioned earlier though. "Hey guys, look at how retro we are - we brought the raccoon suit back! ....oh wait, you wanted it to fly?" *rapidly departs room*

    The code's been altered so badly in such a way that AV software throws up false positives. I'd argue that a program that does such a thing is a mess that shouldn't be played regardless.

    Wait, wasn't it the P-Wing that made you fly? I thought the Raccoon suit turned you into a rock or something? :P

    P-wing gave you infinite flight. Racoon tail and Tanooki suit let you fly if you got up to speed. Tanooki also had the statue thing, which I think is in 3D land somehow.

    And you only get the stone ability after you finish the game, which is mind-numbingly retarded

    Mario will never fly again not like in the 2-D games at least.
    It breaks the game. If you have a cape you only have to play like ten levels in super Mario world and in three while not as pronounced the fact is the raccoon suit and clever use of the cloud and p-wing meant you could get past all the annoying parts of the game.

    I can only agree with this in part...

    I would absolutely love to see something from Mario on the level of Generations, but while I think perhaps the production values could have been higher on the NSMB games, they were both a blast to me. The level designs seem just fine, in my opinion, and I thought NSMBWii was pretty challenging. I love 'em.

    Oh, don't get me wrong-- I wasn't talking quality on Mario vs. Sonic Generations, but just... I don't know. "Epicness?" "Scope?" I'm fumbling for a term here.

    Just playing Generations gave me such an awesome feeling, and I don't want to just say it was "nostalgia," because I think it was more than that. And I want that from Mario.

    Oh, and the Galaxies were great, though I think I prefer the first one more. Don't ask me to explain why.

    I really don't like this look for James. It's like Bizarro James cosplaying as Alan Wake.

    Not really, he's always been about making movies. AVGN wasn't what he started with, it's just the series of his movies that got popular and he's been working on preparations for the current movie of his (filming for which started a few days ago) since something like 2008.
    Essentially, instead of pulling an Angry Birds and just doing what proved successful over and over he's taken what funds he raised and is risking it all on creating something big he's dreamed of making since he was a kid. Even if it's not my thing I can respect him for doing that.

    His updates for the past year have, more or less, just been videos posted for the fans (like horror movie reviews, game board reviews and such), since he didn't have time for more than a couple full sized ones.

    I wish nothing but the best for James in this venture, but I also worry what will become of AVGN if his movie bombs. And truth be told, the odds are seriously against him, even if it does end up a well-made and hopefully hilarious video.

    I can't help but wonder what will happen if it does end up a success though. Will other internet "celebrities" follow suit? Nostalgia Critic: The Movie? Harry Plinkett Presents Star Wars: Episode I?
