@loktarogar: Screw that! Mario games never fail to make me happy, and they're consistently fresh and interesting. If they'd had a long streak of nightmarish releases like Sonic, then yeah.

I'm assuming you were being sarcastic about Nintendo stopping Mario games. That's just crazy talk.

This game looks hilariously bad, but I have to say - with all respect - the woman playing Rebecca is smokin' hot. She even has that Bwitish Elmer Fudd thing going on. Nice.

First of all, that's creepy. Second of all...dang it, you're right. All the women in this are very nice looking. Definitely helps, along with the really bizarre delivery from Jenks.

So this game...

This game is just Sonic the Hedgehog, isn't it?

There's the dash, the momentum, the bouncy pads, the flippers, the spin jump. I mean, there's the water spray thing, but otherwise...

Watch that trailer again and mentally sub in Sonic. Now tell me it couldn't have been Sonic the Hedgehog Sunshine.

See, and a lot of the reviews mention Sonic but I'm just not seeing it. It looks more like Donkey Kong Country's Rambi sections with maybe a little Metal Slug thrown in for flavor.

EDIT: Okay, the pinball section shown there is a pretty Sonic thing to have in there.

I honestly thought the PSP games were better than the PS2/PS3 games. The action felt sharper and the it just felt right on a portable system. I doubt that's the popular opinion, but I think Ready At Dawn had better games than Sony Santa Monica.

@vikingdeath1: Red vines are superior to Twizzlers in every conceivable way.

Most people cite the waxy texture of Twizzlers as their downside, but that's actually what I prefer about them. I don't like the relative brittleness of Red Vines. I also think the flavor of Twizzlers is better than Red Vines.

I wonder if the preference is regional. I grew up in Florida, and it was all about Twizzlers. In fact, I don't remember even encountering my first Red Vine until I moved to the west coast.

I grew up in a family that didn't ever get Taco Bell and Red Vines. I now love both of those things. Maybe I'm just a rebel then.

I'm just bummed that I can't get this as DLC for Jackbox Party Pack so it's all under one roof.

I went through Banjo-Kazooie 100% basically once a year for quite a while. It's the best 3D platformer of the N64/PlayStation era.

But yeah, Dan, if you haven't enjoyed it and don't like it that much, don't feel obligated. I had some hanging thread of need to get 100% in Donkey Kong 64 a couple years ago and it was miserable. I hate that game so freaking much and the closure wasn't worth it.

Of course the one time I pre-buy a game on Steam (well, Green Man Gaming anyway) is the time when the game has all sorts of issues. It more or less runs fine during less stressful portions, but flying or driving around the city is super stuttery, and a lot of textures just don't load. It's a bummer, and I'm waiting for it to get patched up before I dive back in. I've enjoyed the few hours I've played more than Arkham City for sure, but yeah nothing tops Asylum in my book.

The weird fake cartoon blooper reels in Mario Tennis are almost certainly a riff on what Pixar did for a while starting with A Bug's Life. It was novel at the time (you know, 1998).

Looks shockingly bland, kind of like the last game that I'm still trying to get through. It's a real bummer too because a couple of the Mario & Luigi games (1 and 3), the original Mario RPG, and the second Paper Mario game were all quite good. Stellar, in fact. Though Brad suggested the series was on a downward spiral, it's really been up and down all along to be honest. But when they're good, they're REALLY good.
