You all are my kind of people. I too took the leap with Sonic and the Secret Rings (rather than wait for a review copy from Sega I bought the game myself and was later reimbursed) and have to say that I wasn't disappointed. My full review of the game should be up on AMN any moment now, but here's a little preview: it's fun.
Speaking of fun, Nintendo believes that as far as their new Everybody Votes Wii Channel is concerned, everybody should have fun voting. When the polling channel was announced I immediately pictured questions involving future products and games, but instead found puff polls asking whether I prefer cats or dogs. What's the deal? The Everybody Votes Channel has so much potential, but I can't see myself bothering with it if it's not going to ask relevant questions. How about you? What do you think of the new channel? Cast your vote in this non-fluff poll and leave some comments.
