Filtered Thoughts:
     11 years, 2 months, 28 days; that's how long it's been since I have purchased a Sonic game.  Sonic Colors' trailers have me very interested in the game, as some game-play from the trailers remind me of Sonic Adventure.  I don't know a lot about Sonic Colors, other than the trailers I have watched, and the few pieces of reviews I have read or heard about the game.
     Here is just one trailer for Sonic Colors that shows off a good bit of game-play:

     Considering that Sonic Colors released in the middle of November, with a bunch of high profile games; I think the reported game-play data is encouraging.  It may not be a first-person shooter, or even a Nintendo title; but I think Sonic Colors' debut game-play hours show that there is room for Sega's mascot on Nintendo's console.

     I know some of you played Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode I, but did any of you purchase and play through Sonic Colors yet?  If so, what did you think about it?  Would you recommend one over the other, or both?
