Are you playing with a PAL Sonic 1 ROM or something? I've never seen Sonic jump and not go into a ball. Let's hear it for inaccurate emulation!

I think megadrive games costing 800 points each is a huge rip off. Megadrive games are no way equal to SNES once and are usually smaller thus should be less. Like 200 points less. Just to show how right I always am and how I think almost exactly like Nintendo Megadrive games actually are sold for 600 points in Japan.

No I own the original cartridge. There are instances where he jumps and dosent go into his ball. Its isnt too common, happens probably once every 2-3 Zones, but seems to happen exactly when it would piss me off the most (no rings jumping into robotnik for the last hit).

That isnt the only reason why I dont like Sonic 1, just the first that came to mind.

Does your cartridge say NOT FOR RESALE on it or something like that?

Maybe I just play it weird. I've gotten it to happen on my original cart, emulation, and Sonic MCollection. It usually happens when i try to do a short hop instead of a full jump. Sonic will jump, and float in the air in a slow walking animation.

I'll see if I can make a video for you guys.

EDIT: Made the video

The only surefire way I know how to trigger it is by this spring, so at least you can see what im talking about. It happens when Sonic is near other objects as well but I really dont want to drudge through Sonic 1 waiting for something else to trigger it. Just take my word for it, this happens when hes close to other objects/bosses/walls and has killed me on more than one occasion.



This isnt the only gripe I have with Sonic 1 though. I might review Sonic Mega Collection next to better explain myself.

You kinda missed that spring multiple times. That is indeed sad.


Other then that I think this system reveiw was a waste of time. Instead of doing this I could list almost 100 things better you could have been doing including masturbating.

Guess who earned themselves a one week ban! You've been asking for it for awhile, pal.

This thread was pretty helpful considering I just picked up a Wii on Thursday. Can anyone clear up a rumor I've heard a long time ago. I remember hearing leaving the Wiiconnect24 thing on all the time can damage the Wii overtime. Is that true?

I think its a rumor.

I have had my Wii Connect 24 on literally every day since I bought my Wii at launch. Still running fine.

Its up to you. With it on your Wii is still "on", and will be running warm all the time, but I dont see any harm in that. Its engineered to run this way. Personally I'm wouldn't be scared of it, if it does kill your system then it probably just pushed along the inevitable of a faulty system.

The Wiiconnect damaged my graphics. I think if you turn on your Wii a lot, it will be fine. Otherwise it'll just sit there day after day with the graphics card on and no fan running. I guess it can put up with this for awhile, but not too long. Since I rarely turn my Wii on it was destined to happen.

Because the network hardware is supposedly on that card. It's not actually running graphics, but that part of the Wii is what is on. The main CPU might run a bit as well just to put stuff like headlines, current weather and Miis into their place, which is really all Wiiconnect24 does. Or maybe the GPU actually does that (since a GPU is, after all, a CPU).
