Did you miss the options with the books? At least go for a book.


BTW everyone, there are Battletech books too.

Of course you would know! You are the BattleTech wizard!  :D

I've been needing to buy one. Got any favorites that you would reccomend?

Quote from: Thomas
Video games should not be turned into films. I can't think of any film made after a game that I'd consider being good.

Well, I don't know about that. This has nothing to do with the list posted, but Sonic the Hedgehog, while it hasn't necessarily had a movie per say, it has had some fair TV shows productions made. Nothing that'd get it say, an Academy award, but they're watchable. :) Granted, that's only if you're into the franchise, and I somehow doubt people here are going to be.

Point is, that if one game franchise could do it, there's hope for others. I, personally, have been giving the matter a whole lot of thought, and I think Descent at the very least could succeed. :)

* D2Junkie is actually quite into the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise, but dislikes the cartoons.

Though the Sonic X anime was kinda stupid, it was better than what most people give it credit for. That said, I'm mainly an old-school fanatic; I've played through Sonic 1, Sonic 2, Sonic 3D Blast, Sonic Adventure, and Sonic Adventure 2 (Never have played all the way through 3 or Knuckles). Interestingly, a season of Sonic X is based on SA2.

Another thing: I quite thoroughly enjoyed Shadow the Hedgehog, despite its wonky controls and completely senseless overuse of the word "D*mn" throughout the game.
I, for one, hope this is much, much more than a reconnaissance mission.

I have the Sonic Mega Collection, Sonic Heroes, and Sonic Riders for PC, plus both Sonic Rivals games for PSP.

I like Sonic X, although I think the voice acting is awful and the theme song is stupid.

I swear it was murdered by 4Kids. They should have had a "4Teens" that left in all of the good stuff.

Load it up, go to scene select, next, and then the last one. XD

I agree.

And furthermore, 4Kids always claim that 'rice balls' are either 'donuts' or 'sandwiches'.
Stupid, stupid 4Kids

But-but, I haven't put my two-bits in!
* Scyphi derails topic for a post longer. :P

Like I said before, none of the Sonic animated shows are spectacularly great, but they aren't that pathetic, either (usually). I personally thought Sonic X was...okay. Beat watching a wide majority of the other shows on the air at the time. And it had potential, that, unfortunately, did go mostly untapped. And the voice acting...yeah. And the Japenese version, from what I've heard had a few more scenes that were cut from the English version, and actually made things a little bit better.

But the important thing is that it was, despite popular belief, a step in the right direction. I'm actually pretty hopeful that Sonic's next venture to the little screen will be better still.

As for the games, I haven't played them all, but I've seen most of them played before, and with the exception of Sonic '06 and a quirk here and there with some of the others, they're all pretty good, particularly story-wise.
* Scyphi re-rails thread now. :)

Actually, we are discussing a video game series made into a television program. That's not too far off the original topic.



Now THAT'S off-topic.  :D

Rule 25. Relation to the original topic decreases with every single post.

Rule 26. Any topic can be turned into something totally unrelated.

Rule 8 clearly states...





Rule 29 was what Ezri, AKA, (insert his old name here) posed as back at .com. That was a laugh.

Karx likes to exercise rule 9 a lot.

Rule 32 is something that is often mandatory for a lot of things.


I excercise Rules 8, 25, and 26 to justify the posting of this. XD
39 and 40 are priceless.

Rule -3. Every rule above 100 must be followed. No exceptions.

You do not have the real rule list. Which means...

Rule 102. You are made of fail and AIDS.  :D
