Re: Sonic Mania Adventures

I liked the bits throughout this where Sonic and Tails really don't know what to do with Mighty and Ray. The four of them eating chili dogs in silence together was probably the best way these vignettes could have concluded. I don't know if it was intentional or not, but the dome where the final Meta...

Re: Sonic 2018

Honestly, with as inspired by Chaotix's art philosophies as Mania was, I'm really surprised there wasn't a level from that game reworked into a retro stage in Mania itself. It's something Sonic nerds would have gladly eaten up. I think Marina Madness in particular could've made for a great second wa...

Re: Sonic 2018

It'd be interesting to see SegaSonic come to modern systems. The games seems custom made for analog sticks! Chaotix... Eh... Aside from completion's sake, I honestly don't think it's worth porting over as a standalone rerelease, simply because it's oppressively bland and mediocre for a Sonic game. I...

Re: Sonic Mania Plus [Spoiler free thread]

I know this because I spoil everything for myself, but the palette swaps for Encore Mode really do run the gamut from beautiful to what-the-hell-were-they-thinking ugly. There's one zone in Encore Mode in particular where one act looks like one of the best color combinations given the setting ever (...

Re: James Marsden taking lead role in Sonic the Hedgehog mov

Honestly, Shadow's prerendered cutscenes were great, especially for the time. At least when it comes to Sonic, it seems like SEGA in the 2000's was very much style over substance, but that's not to say that nothing without merit ever came from that. I feel like I might have been a bit harsher on Jef...

Re: James Marsden taking lead role in Sonic the Hedgehog mov

If the concept is Sonic coming to the real world, I'm honestly surprised Eggman isn't CGI'd as well. The way he looks in Sonic '06 notwithstanding, I'd expect that since he (assumingly) also comes from Sonic's world that he'd maintain his cartoony appearance to distinguish himself from normal live-a...

I continue to be boggled why Sega doesn't release a Chao Garden smart phone app. If they did, a tutorial character would be the perfect role to dump Cream into for eternity.

Re: Sonic Mania Adventures

I think it's cool that they've used sound effects from the games in this series, but it got kind of crazy this episode. I would never have thought that Knuckles being hopping mad would sound like getting hidden points at the end of acts in Sonic 1. I know they basically had to make the personalities...

Re: Sonic in Mario the Fighters

I'm still not exactly sure what constitutes an Echo Fighters (is it an exact clone with different animations? Can their stats and/or moves be tweaked slightly?), bit if Shadow and Sonic were as different as, say, Falco and Fox on Melee, I'd be cool with it. Granted, that means that Shadow wouldn't g...

Huh. Weirder things have happened, I guess.

Re: Everybody Super Sonic failing... (Team Sonic Racing)

To be blunt, I don't even think this sounds good in theory. The thrill of racing is leaving all of your opponents in the dust, ( "Yeah!! Fucking finally!" ), not collaboratively being the first-placed team because you came in fifth but your CPU ally came in first ( "Wait- Did we win? Oh. Yay." ). I ...

I find it odd that the production team is apparently so experienced when the director's own filmography is really fucking thin . I don't want to read too much into this, but couldn't they have gotten somebody with relevant experience within the last ten years? All the talent in the world doesn't mat...

Re: Revenge of the nerds

Sonic decided to get to Death Egg 2 alone by using a single-seat space rocket "LUNA POX" that Tails invented. However, in order to fly the rocket, 8 Chaos Emeralds must be collected to act as a power source... I kind of find it funny that a small, one-seat rocket needs the power of all (eight) of t...

Wow, that was cold as ice. The way it lingers on the last scene for just a little too long is exquisite. It does kind of seem odd to relegate Amy to a small (albeit memorable) cameo in Mania, but I guess a running theme of the game is to give characters who have never really had their day in the spo...

Re: Sonic Mania Plus [Spoiler free thread]

At this point, the thing I'm most interested in is Encore Mode. I suppose it's essentially a hard difficulty for the game, but it also sounds like their way of showcasing Mighty and Ray's new abilities without having to tear up the existing stages in Mania Mode. I mean, it's sort of a novel way to d...

I feel it's necessary to clarify that Sonic Mania Plus was not actually released, but there was a massive update that was accidently released early for PS4 owners in the UK. That update might've been a part of the changes for Sonic Mania Plus, or was (more likely) just it's own thing. Some of the ju...

Other than Witchcart and Lumina Flowlight (in a dream world, so it's debatable if that counts), the only time I can think of that we see magic is in the storybook games. The only thing I can really think of is the Mystic Melody and the associated pedestals and materialing platforms. If you really w...

If you really want to stretch, Tails may have been transmogrified by the Phoenix of Chun-Nan, another godlike being with magical properties. Aside from the obvious connection of flight and its very distinct and flowing multiple tail feathers, you've also potentially got Super Tails's use of super-ch...

To be fair, it's really hard to pair either blue or red with yellow without having the complete trifecta, or at least some other color break up the other two. This is especially true, for me at least, for the bright, almost neon shade of yellow Ray has. Adding in his muted, tan-colored muzzle and be...

Re: Sega Mega Drive Classics

It is always kind of amazing whenever we get a Mega Drive compilation like this and the Sonic titles stop at Sonic 2 or they skip to Spinball or 3D Blast. Hell, at that point, just release Sonic & Knuckles as a standalone title if the Sonic 3 music rights are that big of a hassle. Otherwise, it's no...
