Not sure how many people played the old Sonic games, but apparently Sega's working on a 'Sonic the Hedgehog 4':

I used to play a lot of Sonic and Mega Man growing up, so seeing both series go back to their 2D roots is awesome. Mega Man 10 will be released next month and will be downloadable just like Mega Man 9 was.

I've played a little NBA Live '95... NBA JAM... but really, it's mainly about the RPG's for me.

FFIII, Chrono Trigger, etc...

Sonic the Hedgehog 4 goes episodic this summer

Sega has taken the wraps off Project Needlemouse (http://www.gamespot.com/news/6216991.html), and the publisher is positioning the game as a proper sequel to the series' Genesis genesis and Sonic the Hedgehog 3, specifically. The publisher has released a new trailer for the game, revealing its official title: Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1.

(http://www.gamespot.com/images/6249457/sonic-the-hedgehog-4-goes-episodic-this-summer/1/?path=2010%2F33%2FNeedlemouse-Trailer-Screens-1_30476_screen.jpg&caption=Sonic%2Bcan%2Boutrun%2Beverything%2Bbut%2Bhis%2Bpast.&blog=1&cvr=crE.)

Sega debuted a trailer (viewable below) for the game, showing off the fourth proper installment of the iconic side-scrolling platformer star. The teaser starts with a retrospective of the series, gradually transitioning the memorable mammal's visage to a new HD version of Sonic, with waypoints at 1991 (the original Sonic), 1992 (Sonic 2), and 1994 (Sonic 3)
The trailer also revealed a few other details about the game, most notably its platforms and release window. Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 will arrive this summer as a downloadable title on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii.
While diehard fans have oft-pleaded for a new 2D installment in the Sonic series, the publisher has for years pursued 3D projects and spin-offs. Most recently, the series has incorporated gameplay revolving around transmogrification in the critically panned (http://www.gamespot.com/news/6202025.html) Sonic Unleashed. The iconic hedgehog also tried out high-speed driving skills in Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, and character progression in the BioWare-developed DS role-playing game Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood.
In an interview with GameSpot (http://www.gamespot.com/xbox360/action/sonicthehedgehog4episode1/news.html?sid=6249445&mode=previews), Sega associate brand manager Ken Balough revealed a few more details about Sonic 4. Specifically, he said the game will pick up the series after Sonic & Knuckles, and incorporate established 2D gameplay mechanics for the series like the spin dash and power sneakers. Additionally, the game will incorporate leaderboards for players to test their speed against one another, and incorporate motion controls on the Wii and PlayStation 3 (with the Sixaxis controller, not necessarily the upcoming "Arc" motion controller.)

Sonic CD for the Sega CD was arguably the best of the classic series. I'm looking forward to this one.

Hm, well you just got me to waste a couple hours of my life. That was fun though. The controls take a bit to get used to though. I can't count how many times I ran straight off a ledge or jumped right into an enemy.

The whole "Episode 1" thing has me a bit concerned. It may end up costing more than the $60 it would cost for a normal game for what amounts to a glorified XBLA title.

I can't count how many times I ran straight off a ledge or jumped right into an enemy.I have a controller that plugs into a USB port... it was cheap (15 or 20 bucks I think?) It makes the emulator a hell of a lot more fun. You just have to program what buttons you want to do what... very simple.

Most RPG's would be fine on a keyboard, though. (I'd think.)

*adopts his truthful snob persona* I don't need the ROMs for those games. I have the cartridges and the SNES or Sega Genesis consoles to play them with.
