    What franchises?

    In the spirit of Nights and Sonic and the Secret Rings, what franchises would you like to see reborn/redone? Burning Rangers - you know, Gun Valkyrie reminded me of this game. Xbox 360 or PS3 Shinobi - not that PS2 controller smashing fest. Something that mixes fun and skill, like Shinobi...

    Threads just kind of died, here's something that should hopefully perk some interest: It's a hand drawn flash game with a great deal of inspiration from Sonic, so it seems. That, and it's pretty damned cool.
