According to this link Sonic Colors placed '#31' last weekend, not 16th as Aki-at says.

Quote
There was some concerns for the sales of Sonic Colours when it first charted on the British charts, heading at a lowly 36th at the beginning of it’s tenure in the charts. Well the game continues to travel upwards in the charts, now up two positions to 16th and it’s not simply just one version of the game going up, both Wii and DS version have moved higher in the individual charts from 35 to 31 for the DS version and 29 to 27 for the Wii version.

Those are individual chart numbers, not the combined multiformat chart numbers, in which Sonic Colours is 16th.

Also CrazyTails, avoid anything VGChartz report as everything except fact.

Ah damn, thought maybe it would have been credible this time. History has thought me that vgchartz numbers are mostly lower than the actual numbers. So this could maybe still be a good thing.

But I got both of your messages ;)

His numbers come from VGChartz and VGChartz does not have a credible history as a true sales tracker, which is why we at SEGAbits hardly mention them. So therefore, the source of that number is invalid.

They have known to overtrack and undertrack titles severely, for example, Valkyria Chronicles is beyond even half of what it's true sold through number in America is.

If someone is asked not to post links to a website, please don't do it again... We rarely ever ask this of our forum members. But the guy that runs that site is a complete dickhead and we have desided not to have links to his site anymore.

Encyclopedia Dramatica isn't porn... But I did forget about that penis, so I'll put a warning.

Also, I agree we don't post porn here but there are no minors on this forum that I know of... Everyone is at least 18 and most of us are in our 20's or 30's

There is nothing that can be done about adverts... We sometimes even get links to new game info and screens on Japanese websites where you have to over look anime porn.

It's the internet, learn to ignore it.

Back on topic.

So I had this planned for a while...

To play sonic adventure 2 and see how a game that has come out 10 years later compares to it. Well:

Sonic colors is a great game, but yeah I now see what people mean when they hate the 3d sections. This is actually something that counts also for sonic unleashed.

Sonic adventure 2 is a game that only exists of 3d and to be honest the controls are really solid. I forgot how much platforming there actually was. Stages are really well designed and vary alot from each other which feels a lot like how the classics were. I mean it wasn't just "the gimmicks" or the different artdesign/textures what differed the stages from each other. They are unique in every way. I thought the stages were varied in colors but compared to sa2 it lacks harshly.

So yeah, 2 points that were better in sa2 but colors still wins the fun factor for the reasons that sa2 lacks and sonic colors does really good. Frankly I still hate the whole direction of realistic, dark with lots of rock style. It lacks polish and alternate paths.

This was kind of my verdict when I played colors after.

I really hope they make a new engine, make sonic controls even better than any sonic game for both 3d and 2d environments.

Here's hoping that Iizuka, the producer today which also played a very big roll with sonic adventure 2, combines all the good stuff from all sonic games in the past and makes something great for the 20th aniversary.

When they released Sonic Adventure 2 Sonic Team had a site set up that had a quote on top that read something along the lines of "Here is this magnificent game that is designed with 10 years of experience building Sonic games" lol

But yeah, I agree. I think when people look back though even though the story is much darker than titles before it they do not realize just how good that and Adventure 1 really are. Obviously they have aged (I think Colors will age faster than SA2 has), but a lot of love was put into the games, a lot of passion you really just do not see in many Sonic games anymore. Sonic Colors was the first Sonic game I have played in a long while that I can tell had a lot of this put into it's development cycle.

Even still... I really do not think Sonic Adventure 2 is that realistic or really even that dark. Yeah, the Gerald Robotnik stuff is LOLWTFSERIOUS, but before that outside of Shadow's stuff the game is barely different from Adventure 1, which had a really positive style overall.

Anyways, on the topic of Sonic Colors...! I made a review.

BAM! http://thesegasource.wordpress.com/2010 ... ii-review/

If anyone reads any of it, be sure to check out the controls section as I feel that is the most important topic that has barely ever been mentioned on the forums.

So yeah, expecting a lot from the next major game, but my expectations are not too high that my soul will be crushed a fourth time by Sonic Team in five years (Sonic 06, Sonic 4, Journey of Dreams). I know I have said this maybe a dozen times now, but I really have no idea how they are going to screw this up with all of the great concepts they have running now.

^Read it, I think we'll have to agree to disagree on some things but over all good review.

One thing I really don't agree with
Quote
Being designed specifically for the Wii console, it is disappointing that none of Wii’s special features were taken advantage of.

It really isn't! That is the main thing I was dreading and when it turned out that kind of crap was kept to a minimum I was very happy.

Thanks. There were some other things I wanted to say but it was already a bit too long... I still recommend the game to most people and think it is one of the better games on the console. It might be my personal favorite too, not sure.

I am glad you did not need to twist the controller to move backwards again or anything, but it just seems like it being on Wii was a waste. All of the stuff they did could have easily been done better on the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360, probably even the original Xbox too. Look at something like Rabbids Go Home, that has a lot of really neat uses for the Wii console.

I did not really see it as a negative, it was just kind of a strange choice. Like I said, the Robotnik's announcements over the Wii Remote's speaker would have been a neat touch.
