Game is looking terrible.

Posted by gakon

How are Sonic games still more or less embodying the same extreme '90s video game mascot motif?

Cool, Rise is announcing. :P

Posted by Lemoncookie01

Rise is in everything.

Posted by mutha3

Y'all should be happy we didn't get Japanese Rise as an announcer.

I really cannot believe there's a catch mode.

The first 40 seconds to this video are hilarious. The intro music for this game is great but its doesn't make me feel the sunshine:

Absolute garbage and so is Kinect. I will not buy into this motion control fad.

Sonic R and Antigrav are far superior.

I am not ashamed to say that I liked the first Sonic Riders game. It had its flaws, but I've always felt people were being a little too harsh on it just because it was attached to a troubled franchise. I hate bad Sonic games just as much as the next guy, but I often wonder if Sega had removed Sonic from the game if it would have fared better in reviews.
    

  This Kinect game, though. Hoooo. This is downright embarrassing. It looks so sloppy!

Anyone reminded of Eyetoy Antigrav for the PS2? I liked that game and it had motion controls!

I was okay with Sonic Riders, too. It was bad, but something about it was neat enough that I actually bothered to play all the way through it. I'm not sure what it was, maybe something about the design, or the hoverboard racing concept, or.. Wave the Swallow.... anyway... I didn't mind it! But then they kept making them without fixing the things that were already broken in the first one, so, MEH to that.
 
And what is it with Sonic games and absolutely abysmal voice work? I mean... at least they're consistent with it, but jeez...
 
[edit] King Doc of Toreggmania. DOHOHOHO. That's even worse than my stuff..!  

I think the fundamental problem with this game and control scheme is that it was designed by people who have never even seen a skateboard, snowboard or surfing board. I've done a little bit of skating in my time, just a little, and when you turn left (riding regular), you don't lean backwards. You lean forwards in order to counteract the way you have to push your hips back, putting the weight on the heels of your feet to push the board down. All the steering happens from hips down! 
 
So either people are playing this game wrong, or this game is just wrong. But in either case, leaning around like that doesn't feel comfortable at all if the surface you're standing on doesn't conform, like a skateboard would. Maybe someone oughta try putting the Ride controller on the ground and playing it that way... [/edit]

LEAN BACK FURTHER YOSUKE SENPAI-PAI
 
Why is there a mini-map, what is going on.

Posted by ashton

7 min, jeff turning away in disgust. :D i love it

Posted by drag

From what I've seen every course is made up of massive long straights and a few corners.  
A more cynical person might suggest the developers knew how shitty their controls were and had no other options when it came to course design.

Coming soon;  Sonic Waterboarding, only for Xbox 360 Kinect!

I love it when I can hear Steve laughing off camera!

This game is easy to play. I beat all 13 basic tutorials within a half hour and cleared the first mission of the story mode. It's not nearly as hard as Jeff is making it out to be. You just have to stand sideways and do the moves -properly-.
