Re: AYE DEE DUBBLEYUU

http://i65.tinypic.com/30sbsiv.png At the very least, all these skunks share tails / the impression of tails that act as pseudo-pompadours. Their coloration and shading is really Pokemon-esque too. It's amazing how much that big skunk resembles a furry Vector. Also, I'm sorry, but how do you not ma...

Re: Super cardboard racing

Gotta say, I'm really, really liking the character figures. Small nitpick, but if they plan on including Blaze (which I would love), then her outer clothing needs to be a darker shade of purple, not the same color as her fur. The badniks look good too, although I do wish they were painted like the c...

Re: Sonic 2018

There was that time they did Sonic Colours and Sonic Generations immediately after. Apparently they split into two teams to do this (but I've never seen any evidence of that as there's a lot of shared personnel in the credits). If I'm not mistaken, the Colors crew was largely composed of the people...

Re: What do we want for 'Sonic Mania 2'?

Here are my thoughts, in no particular order... -The sequel will be expected to be at least +12 full zones long. That said, I'm personally fine with a game that has 8 or 9 zones. Beefier than Sonic 3, shorter than the epic of Sonic 3 & Knuckles, which is what I think is the sweet spot for a game tha...

Re: Sonic 2018

The development cycle for Sonic Forces was supposedly 4 years. But if they have a new big flagship Sonic game that's ready to be teased at this point, I wonder if Sonic Team didn't write off Forces as a lost cause at some point, and just pumped it out as quickly as possible so they could quietly get...

Re: Revenge of the nerds

Eggman being associated with eggs in kind of cut and dry, at least in my view. Eggman obviously wants nothing more than to shake up the status quo by conquering the world. He is, by definition, an incubator in which profound change and his vision of the world will (hopefully for him) come to fruitio...

I'd make a joke about an evil parallel-dimension counterpart to Tangle, but I'm afraid Penders will hear my words on the wind and sue.

Re: Archie Sonic is probably dead

Honestly, if they were going to make a new character, basing it off of an exaggerated physical trait that lends itself to action wasn't a bad choice. It's arguably how Tails and Knuckles came to be, and it just isn't another cartoon animal with Sonic proportions. The only thing I'm not keen on is th...

Re: Revenge of the nerds

Then again with Mania's big reference to them, we might seem the Mania team work the Game Gear titles more into the classic continuity. I don't know about any of the other titles, but you could argue that both versions of Sonic 1 focus on separate events taking place during the same overall story. ...

Re: Revenge of the nerds

Honestly, if we're going to try to sort through the early-Nineties games, I really think you have to go off of story elements alone. Trying to figure out when Sonic learns the Spin Dash just mucks everything up and, like Frieza said, you can chalk that up to game design. And release dates are just r...

Apparently some hedgehog is wearing Madonna's dress. I'm also seeing a few Sonic manga characters, like Anton Beruka and members of Nikki's family. So was SEGA considering using those characters in something, or did it work the other way, where someone at SEGA designed the characters to be used in t...

Minor nitpick, but is there really anything to suggest that Nightopia / Maginary World are the same thing aside from the NiGHTS cameo? Or are you just saying that there's a generic dreamworld Sonic has access to? If we count the Olympic games' as... "canon" , and their settings as their own dimensio...

Re: Sonic 2017

Yeah, that's actually a good question: Why on Earth did they ever bother to mess with Generation's already decent physics? I mean, Megaman's basically had the same physics for ten games and nobody's complaining about that. Did they think they were making them better ? The fact that you actually gain...

I don't know if you'd consider it a platformer, but I think the isometric perspective works really well with the ball physics of Marble Madness.

I've always wondered if sonic 3D blast would have been better if it wasn't a sonic game.

People want sonic for speed and I wonder if they made the game based on a brand new IP ...

Re: Sonic 2017

I'm up to the twelfth stage of the game, and gaawd am I not having a good time. The controls and physics are the two worst things. Acceleration is way too quick and unintuitively bumps up significantly after you get going a bit, at least as Modern Sonic. Jumps are really stiff, and as Sonic it's bas...

Re: Sonic 2017

I've been reading comments from people saying that Sonic Team should close up and get a new team or they should get Whitehead to do make new games. Frankly, I'm starting to agree with that sentiment. I don't know how I feel about this. On one hand, I think the series in general needs a major paradi...

Re: Sonic 2017

That's a good opening salvo against this game. A few things... The writing is astonishingly bad. Not Heroes-era sort of bad, just really incompetent storytelling. I wasn't sure what to make of it at first because Pontac, while I hate his treatment of the characters and setting, has always shown basi...

Re: Sonic 2017

Gotta say, Forces's story is meh but I increasingly love the Phantom Ruby as a story element. It really does contrast nicely with the Chaos Emeralds as an "antagonistic" magic rock. Plus, it fits Eggman and how he often relies on displays of power rather than actually exercising power to get what h...

Re: Revenge of the nerds

I myself had always assumed Sonic was just out for a morning jog or something in GHZ at the start of Generations, not actually going through the motions of Sonic 1 . I thought there was some sort of lore about Sonic particularly liking to run through there, but I can't seem to find it at the moment....

Re: Sonic 2017

Reading just Flynn's post really makes it seem like Bean is going to be a character who is integral to the story of that issue. It's only if you scroll down afterwards that people spoil that it is actually a bomb.

Still, that's quite a clever and subtle little reference!

New Sonic Forces stage I don't know, it might just be the lighting, but the juxtaposition of dark jungle ruins with bright shiny casino aesthetics just isn't doing it for me.

What I want to know is how they're going to promote the game. Demo kiosks? Sonic-themed chicken/beer combos? Your original character on a napkin?

Re: Has Rouge been kept abreast of this?

I have to assume that Hooters' image in Japan must be somewhat different from here. Maybe they just see it as a cool American thing. I suppose that's true, but to American consumers, this news is weirdly fascinating at best and a deal breaker (especially to parents, I imagine) at worst. Surely some...
