There's a close result this week in the poll results, but a slim majority of you out there go out of your way to earn Trophies and Achievements during your video game adventures. I know I certainly do provided the goal is something I believe is possible. That's my actual Trophy collection (as of last week) there in the image above the poll results, and while I've knocked off my share of accomplishments, I've yet to collect every Trophy in a game to earn a platinum reward. There's always that one stupid little Trophy that is a major time sink that I'm just not willing to do. The closest I've ever come to earning the platinum is in The Godfather II where all that's left is to complete each style of execution, but there's just so many of them that I cannot keep track of which ones remain unaccomplished, and in the heat of the moment I end up just shooting the target in a generic fashion. Oh well. Maybe someday.
Looking ahead, last week Sega announced yet another crack at bringing Sonic the Hedgehog back to his roots in what is tentatively known as "Project Needlemouse". We've all heard the pitch by now: pure speed, 2D roots, yadda yadda yadda. Are you taking the bait this time? Do you expect "Project Needlemouse" to live up to expectations? Or is this just the infamous Sonic cycle in action one more time? Let's hear your thoughts.
