As much as Ryan hates Game room, I really love these videos.

I love Game Room QL's, the shittier the games, the better the episodes.
 
Drop Ryan though from now on, jesus christ what a downer. "End this game now." "I'm leaving." "Let's stop playing this game." 
 
Hey, crazy idea, how about Vinny being the permanent sidekick, ey?

Huh, I don't remember the Voice-overs in sonic adventure having that metallic ring to them, oh well, its good to see it back in all of its buggy glory, awful steering on sonic and all.

I like how awesomely stupid it is that the Sonic characters just kind of hang out in the city with people.

The quality of the game room releases is inversely proportional to the quality of the quick looks.

It says a lot that Sonic Adventure is the worst game in this Game Room quick look.

I support tricking Ryan into more Game Room Quick Looks. It's always a good time to see Ryan suffer.

Like Jeff, was not expecting the purchase of sonic adventures. Too bad that every sonic game after it really wasn't all that impressive.  
  
Also if I was one of those cops in the start of the game, I'd grab some of those gold rings to sell them for a huge amount of $.  
 
Nice try Sega/Sonic Team but needs more Cthulhu. 
 

Edit: am i the only one slightly disturbed by the tail animation of tails where one tail starts is crawling up his back?

I think the GameCube version of Sonic Adventure runs in 16:9, so this is great. Real high quality product.

I'm more impressed on how quickly they downloaded 1.49 GB. On my internet connection that would have taken at least 30 mins if not longer :(

They had to go and take a surprisingly decent Game Room QL and ruin it by having Sonic Adventure all in it. But, hey. That intro was quite fine.

Oh Jeff, you trickster you. Looks like someone at Mircosoft visits Giantbomb because the addition of those (and only those) two games this week seems like a response to the negative reactions Gameroom causes. Kudos for Konami's Kitten kaboodle. 
 
Poor Ryan, he couldn't endure Sonic Adventures and left in a huff. Also, I'm glad he said: "key, key, key, key, key." and not "Kay, kay, kay, kay, kay."
 
That "guy" Jeff talked to is either a figment of his imagination subconsciously produced to maintain his faith that Gameroom will someday be worth while (in the same way that many people believe there will come a day when everything will change for the better; I wonder if that's how messianic religious figures are formed?) or a mendacious cad who revels in giving Jeff false hope. 
 
In conclusion: You should always throw fireboxes at crocodiles.

$10 for that piece of shit?!  Maybe the $5 Dead Rising: Case Zero has ruined price expectations for me, but I'm pretty sure that charging that much for a shitty Sonic game is against some law.

The Game Room games this week at least look worth a look. Obscure Konami arcade games are usually fun. But then Sonic Adventure. I should go find the Dreamcast and the game so I can play it, since I would never purchase the thing.

One of these days, a Game Room QL is going to end with Jeff breaking down and reenacting Network. "I'm mad as hell, and I'm not gonna take it anymore!"

I almost forgot how truly terrible Sonic Adventure has aged. To think that people used to call it "the only good 3D Sonic game"  amuses me.
