So Sega just announced a re-release of Sonic Adventure coming to the XBLA.I know, crazy, right?
Sega re-re-re-re-re-releasing their mediocre blue mascot's formerly decent games is really starting to just wear on me. It's so sad. It's as if Sega keeps pleading it's case like a sweaty, nervous drug addict begging for more money- "Hey, guys, uh remember when we were good?! Please remember when we were good..."
And even worse? People eat that shit up. They do. They buy it. Does nobody still have a Genesis or a Dreamcast laying around anymore? Really? You've gotta go give Sega another 10 or 20 bucks so they can keep pulling this shit? So they don't have to come up with new ideas or actually be good enough at what they do that they shouldn't have to be playing on our nostalgia? Come on.
And they keep talking like this new XBLA episodic game they're coming out with is this new revelation. Like Sonic is finally back or something. The Sonic Advance game and the SOnic Rush games are pure Sonic games and are actually quite decent. Well decent until you realize that the Sonic games always just devolve into a speedy platformer on auto-pilot with a boss fight at the end.
So I just listened to the Bombcast and wow, they really trashed SA. Not just because it sucks, but because Sega wants you to pay an extra 5 bucks for the DX stuff that a lot of people thought was going to the the version they released. Sonic Adventure DX was not a piece of DLC originally, it was an entire game. The fact that they ported the original version and then expect people to pay for the "DX content" is super shitty. So have fun bending over and taking another one from Sega all the people who wasted their time defending this re-release.
