Kojima on Pushing Tech. - I admit what he says is interesting but let's be honest what kind of game will use that? All I can think of is some Harvest Moon type shit. Even in Metal Gear that shit wouldn't work well, unless of course I stay in the same locations for days on end. Also"Kojima is currently rumoured to be working on a new game based on RPG series Snatcher, with No More Heroes mastermind Suda 51." WTF!? Snatcher is an adventure game. Hrm

Nintendo Power's Secret Game - And it's Sonic!

Sonic and the Black Knight - info, screens

- Developed by the same people as Sonic and the Secret Rings

- "This time, a sorceress named Merlina summons Sonic to the mythical realm of King Arthur, but it seems the fabled monarch has somehow been corrupted and now rules the land as the tyranical Black Knight."

- Uses a similar storybook device as Sonic and the Secret Rings

- "As Sonic runs along, a simple flick of the Wii remote will execute a basic slash, which is enough to dispatch most low-level grunts."

- More advanced swordplay consists of the ability to thrust, parry, and even pull off a buzz-saw maneuver midjump.

- "During our demo, we saw the hedgehog leap from a high precipice, then thrust the blade into a wall to slow his decent, sparks flying impressivly as steel cut through brick."

- "Combat is integrated in such a way that most of the time you can slice through any who stand in your path without even slowing down."

- Sonic is controlled with the Control Stick.

- "Our hero begins his quest as a mere knave. Only by becoming a full-fledged knight will he have any hope of defeating King Arthur."

- "his sword, a talking blade named Calibur, serves as a mentor."

- "If you help civilian townfolk in need of assistance, you'll earn points toward knighthood. If you smite one of those civilians, your reputation will take a hit."

- "At the end of each stage, the game tallies your good and not-so-good deeds and updates your rank accordingly."

- "Sonic can aquire everything from gauntlets to magical tomes to new swords, and when equipped, each article bestows him with a unique benefit."

- "On the audio side, veteran composer Jen Senoue is taking a smiliar approach, injecting familiar Sonic themes with a Celtic flavor."

-Sonic uses magic elementals to help him do various things, such as a bounce pad or a speed boost. They look like chao heads. The red ones give him a jump and the blue give Sonic a speed boost.

- About 200 items in all, with some being able to be combined with others to make new ones.

- You have the option to go online and trade items with friends.

- Rings come in burlap sacks instead of monitors.

- SBK Bringing back the skill system from Secret Rings, but they're trying not to have the skill system interfere with the game's tempo this time around.

- The mission structure also returns but the developers hope to make it less arduous.

- "Each stage has multiple branching paths and searching for townsfolk and treasure chests provides an element of exploration that recalls Sonic's early Genesis days."

- "The camera will occasionally pan to a side-scrolling perspective for a quick dose of classic 2-D action."

- "And there will be no dinosaur eggs!"

- "When people see that Sonic is wielding a sword, they'll probably have certain expectations of the multiplayer mode. And all I can say is that we're thinking along those same lines."

- "Just as they subbed in for such characters as Ali Baba and Aladdin in Sonic and the Secret Rings, a number of familiar faces will assume Arthurian personas in SBK."

- "This time, however, some of Sonic's friends will be playable. Each hero will boast unique abilities, and though the team isn't ready to divulge the full cast just yet, we do know the identities of two playable comrades: Knuckles, who brandishes two swords at once, and Shadow."

- Playing as these other characters is entirely optional. You will be able to play through game as Sonic, or switch to the other characters if you choose.

- "While the old guages from Secret Rings are gone, a new special guage will "bestow him with similarly impressive powers. The meter fills gradually whenever Sonic vanquishes an enemy or snags a purple elemental, and when it reaches a certain point you can unleash a powerful combination attack capable of tearing through multiple foes in quick succession. You simply press the B button to lock onto the nearest enemy, flick the remote to strike him down, then press B again to move onto the next unfortunate soul. If you chain together enough smitings before the guage is depleted, Sonic will receive a speed burst at the end of the string."

- "the team behind Sonic and the Black Knight is keenly aware of the franchise's past missteps, and their enthusiasm for doing right by the series is infections."

Not one of the Max Payne's even got to the 90% mark on GR's so that disqualify's the critically. Not to mention the game didn't hold the test of time as well either (I'll assume).

Your assumption is incorrect. WinkWink

punk rebel ecks said:

LOL

I personally never got this core vs casual shit. I mean prior to this generation hardcore didn't refer to shit like Halo or GTA, no hardcore refered to shit like Life-Life Tactical Strategy Shooters, Submarine Simulator's, Psychodically Difficult Shoot-em-ups, Dungeon Crawlers where players had to do a 6 hour marathon just to complete a single dungeon, that use to be hardcore. Now what's hardcore? GTA? Halo? SSB? WTF? Last generation these were the games that were said to be the casual games and now they are some untouchable core God's?

And why do people want their games to be associated with core games in the first place? I mean most core games are pure shit and people only play them to get the challenge. I don't think playing a single dungeon for a quarter of a day is good design, nor is a shoot-em-up that I die because of the games actions and not mine, nor is a shooter where if a go a millimeter off in the wrong direction I get killed with one shot.

I mean WTF happened to games just being games. Last generation I don't remember people saying shit like "Ugh...Katarmari Damachi...is that a core game or a casual game? Should I buy it to support the community?". I can't tell you how many times I've seen people turn down games like BoomBlox or some other stuff because it wasn't "for the community". This shit pisses me off. And to think if companies are going by the usual console cycle this generation is half-done already. Comparing this generation of consoles to the last is there really any comparison to which had the better games and the "core" games? But no this is the generation where core and casual really matter right? Pure shit.  

I've been saying this for god knows how long but nobody believes me. People have short memories I suppose.

He's Kojima with more coherent plots, but less of an idea how to make a video game. So basically they've both got the same brain, but in each of them only one half works. So combined we'll get the greatest game of all time.

I don't like him all that much, though. His reviews are overly-optimistic (even for a lifelong Nintendo fan like me) and his previews are over-the-top, mega-hype. If IGN needed a face to represent their Wii page, couldn't they have gotten someone a little less dopey looking and acting? He just rubs me the wrong way and gives ALL Nintendo fans a bad name...

Way to lose Credibility, Matto!

I have to disagree here Leo, the main criticism Matt gets, is him being to critical. Compare the reviews from the different IGN sections with each other. It is no secret that the Nintendo team is the most conservative with their grading. You can even compare Galaxy with GTA4 in text, their Galaxy review is more down to earth than the Oscar quality bullshit.

Also Matt has said on multiple occasions that he has a 360 and even told his listeners to buy it.The only preview hype I can remember is Zack and Wiki which was deserved. In his podcasts they are always critical of their impressions before a review. That are the positives stuff.

The negative part. The giving of vague hints always blow up in their faces. I personally take them as rumours, but many take them as facts. If they turned out to be false they look like idiots. They do it all the time, so they deserve a lynching there. Than their is the fact that Matt is a whiny little bitch. He always find things to complain about, I will not get into detail here. And sometimes he makes dumbass statements like: Wii can't do Normal maps, Wario Shake had bad animation, etc.

Kojima on Pushing Tech. - I admit what he says is interesting but let's be honest what kind of game will use that? All I can think of is some Harvest Moon type shit. Even in Metal Gear that shit wouldn't work well, unless of course I stay in the same locations for days on end. Also"Kojima is currently rumoured to be working on a new game based on RPG series Snatcher, with No More Heroes mastermind Suda 51." WTF!? Snatcher is an adventure game. Hrm

I thought that example was pretty shitty that Kojima gave. I mean didn't sony show that PS3 demo of an environment changing and growing like a garden? Not only that you can do that sort of stuff on the gba if you want. Have several drawings of a tree, when you water it, it grows to stage 1, water it more and it goes to stage 2 and so on.

HA I knew it, that new Sonic looks bad ass.  Told you so!!!!

*please don't look back at my previous posts*

It actually looks........ good. I may even contemplate even.... buying it. He has a sword and it looks to me, better than unleashed. Why the hell don't they announce these games at E3 and at the nintendo conference? Stupid asses have ruined E3!

http://www.mcvuk.com/news/31302/Moore-Wii-will-own-half-of-all-next-gen-sales

Peter moore says wii will take half of all next gen sales.

He's wrong. Wii is not a next-gen console.

You are right Wii, 360 and PS3 are all current gen.

Wii is a continuation of the Gamecube generation, so its last-gen. 360 and PS3 are current gen.

And the Playstation 3 is a continuation of Playstation 2 and Xbox 360 of Xbox, so I guess they are all last gen than?

But the Wii is like a step away from Gamecube with a few extra lighting effects when we're lucky, while 360 and PS3 are quite a few steps away from the old machines, to the point where its obvious to the eye that they're not on the old machine. Which you already know so I don't know why you're playing semantics games here.

True, but a step is still a step. And next gen does not mean better graphics, but the next in line. Even if the graphics would be worse than the Gamecube it would still be a next gen console, because it is the generation after Gamecube, a simple concept really.

If you have a kid that is retarded it still means he is in the next generation. I am "playing the semantic game" as you say it, because you are wrong plain and simple.

LOL Okay.

There is lots of potential with the wii CONTROLLER but it seems hampered by its own hardware.

Fixed.

WTF SUDA is anything but a mastermind of anything.

LOL

It kills me how people are suddenly talking about him like he's on the level of Miyamoto, Kojima, and Mikami.

I really wouldn't agree that more powerful systems have more innovative games at all.

They have more potential to, in my opinion. Especially in the kinds of games I want to play, since they get more of them. Either way, if Nintendo had a 360-esque system powering the Wii controller, I think it would have been taken to a higher level than it has at this point through more competition on the platform. And that's just control innovation, never mind what Miyamoto could do with 360's hardware among others.
