Oh lawl, I get it. It’s a Sonic game, we best make a “funny video” slowly making fun of the quality in Sonic games. Yes, I know most of us aren’t into Mario & Sonic games, but are they the worst thing to happen to Sonic or even Mario? No.
Funny how this makes a site like 1up depressed, didn’t even seem like the person in the video even played the game before citing it as crap. Journalism. Didn’t they also announce like 3 Mario solo games at E3? No Mario video? Just Sonic?
Yeah, 1up isn’t going to be missed now that they got bought out by IGN.Ad:

"Didn’t they also announce like 3 Mario solo games at E3?"
Well, we got a solo-Mario platformer, a kart racer featuring more than just Mario, and a solo-Luigi adventure with him busting ghosts.
What a bitch!
Oh look a comedian, don't quit your day job pumpkin!
I think the bottom line here is that something like 11 million people baught Mario and Sonic. My 6 – 11 year old cousins thought it was the shit, you know kids, the demographic M&S is aimed towards.
I don't go to the fair and ride the tea cups and complain that it was too slow and childish… give it a 4/10… I think it's just blatently obvious it wasn't designed with me in mind, so why people feel the need to complain about Mario and Sonic is beyond me.
It's probably THE BEST thing that could have been done with the Olympics license to be honest.
tl;dr: what a stupid bitch.
Wow… why do people like that get the privilege to go to events like this? So stupid and disrespectful.
1UP used to be good…
Wait what, this is from 1UP? As in it's not just some douchebag on youtube?
I didn't know 1UP were taking on failed comedians, don't put Star Bucks out of buisness!
Most of the old 1up staff has mostly departed. Some have their own own blog like Bitmod etc.
Knuckles, where were you? How could you have let this happen? 🙁
I have no history with video game sites like IGN, Gamespot, 1UP, etc. I've always stuck with small communities, like SEGABITZ! (for better or for worse) Watching E3 live was my first time going through GameTrailers, and I was like "what is all crap smeared all over the front page? How can one tell where one thing begins and where it ends?".
How could people even put up with this bullshit?
That was the worst attempt at a joke I have seen in some time. She didn't even have a punchline just 'you know, because it's a sonic game or something…I dunno I'm trying to be spiteful but am not very good at it'. What passes for journalism sometimes is simply pathetic.
Journalism? In… games?
Maybe Gamasutra. Definitely Siliconera. Anywhere else, though…
@Barry the Nomad: Why do certain people get to go to E3? It may have something to do with their career. Speaking of stupid and disrespectful, on SEGA's end, crap Sonic games like the Storybook games, the Mario and Sonic Olympics, Sonic Chronicles, Shadow the Hedgehog, Sonic Heroes, Sonic Unleashed, and Sonic Classic Collection Collection. The only games in the Sonic franchise that have been any good as of late has been Sonic Colors (DS & Wii), Sonic Rush and SEGA & Sonic's All-Star Racers (PS3/360/DS).
On Nintendo's side, the story is a bit different. The crap to good ratio isn't as bad. Super Mario Galaxy 1 & 2, New Super Mario Bros., New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Mario Kart Wii, and Mario Kart DS, and the 'Mario & Luigi' RPGs. The only ones that leave a foul taste in me have been Super Mario Sunshine, Super Mario 64 DS, and the lousy Super Mario All-Stars re-release. Then again, Nintendo is quite guilty of selling the same games over and over again.
