    Okay, so Sega has been a major contributor to the Wii as of late. They have released great titles (House of the Dead Overkill, Madworld) and garbage (Sonic & The Black Knight). The thing is, Sega KNOWS that they are releasing bad Sonic games and tend to focus on improving the quality of their other titles. They are doing this just because they know the fanbase will go nuts with anything Sonic and they don't care about the quality because they think they know that the game will still sell. WHY THE HELL IS SEGA DOING THIS TO US? I appreciate Madworld and HotD, but come on, why are you putting Sonic on the back end? Come on Sega.

    they are also publishing The Conduit (highly anticipated game by most). But you know sega only developes Sonic and HOtD(i think sega inhouse did it so to me considered sega) games and not Conduit and Madworld. They only publish it. I dont know how well there doing pushing Madworld outside of a couple ads in gamestop. so i dont know what to say about sega really.

    They are only the publisher for madworld and overkill, and their own game studios are only producing crap in the last time [​IMG].

    Money.
    Simple, honest truth.
    Money.
    And AFAIK, sonic games do sell pretty well. (Correct me if I'm wrong here?)

    Sega is only publishing good games... their 'local' development studios (ie, who makes sonic games) are garbage... it's really kinda sad. But at least they do pick up some great titles like Madworld and Conduit.

    I still think that recent sonic games have been fun. Bear in mind I would not hail them as the best games ever but if you ignore the older titles, they are good fun. PS I haven't played sonic 06 though.
    It all reeks of Zelda and Mario. Nostalga seems to make every game seem un-revolutionary nowadays. People are always quick to point out that it isn't as larger step as it was previously. We are constantly expecting the latest breakthroughs in technology that we are unable to appreciate what we can currently achieve now.
    Look as Resi 5. I fucking loved resident evil 4 and despite not much changing in RE5, I love it as well.

    Please understand that as I write this, I am nearly falling asleep so if something is wronf or idiotic, I have an excuse. [​IMG]

    yeh right SATBK is the worst sonic game i have ever played. they have stripped everything good from what a sonic game needs and instead just have you running jumping and waggling the whole game. the levels are linear, the bosses boring there is nothing good about this game.

    Well I personally thought the two Adventure games were awful but each to their own. Whats odd about S&TBK is that its a damn pretty game for something that is cleary made just to sell to kids, if only Sega concentrated on one Sonic game (Unleashed) then at least we'll have a much better one.

    I'm sure that their next Iron Man, Captain America, Thor & Avengers games will suck balls too, if I was SEGA I'd get Platinum, Headstrong or High Voltage to do those games as a license game may sell well but a well reviewed one will do even better.

    Seems like Sega have a great Wii game each month up to June:
    Feb: HOTD: Overkill
    March: Madworld
    April: Conduit
    May: Virtua Tennis
    June: Lets Tap

    Most publishers can't even manage that so good on Sega. Hopefully Madworld & Conduit will sell well, I know HOTD did fairly well for a 18+ on rails shooter.

    You guys didn't get it =.=

    This isn't a Sonic Game, the same way that Luigi's Mansion wasn't a Mario Game...

    If they just removed Sonic from Black Knight and created completely new characters, the game would have received grades above 80%, since people think that Sonic is all about gameplay, we have this shit reviews...



    If the gameplay is the Sonic franchise focus, why Sonic fans love fanarts, HQ's, Mangas, remixed musics, etc along the internet? "It even has loopings or springs" [/IGN]



    Sonic Unleahed was a great game, the day levels were amazing, but if we remove the Werehog stuff and leave just the day levels... It will be missing something...

    Something that Black Knight have in excess: the style, the soul of the series =p

    Let's see, this is the Sonic OVA (Sonic The Movie in US). Since isn't a game, it don't has gameplay, but still has the spirit of the franchise, unlike Unleashed that has only gameplay
