Re: New Sonic game for 2015

If working on new tech, it makes sense that 100% of the focus should be on the speed gameplay. Once that's perfected then things like multiple characters, combat modes and adventure fields can be added. That way, if the project that runs of time, it's only the extras that will suffer. The core game...

Re: New Sonic game for 2015

I like SatAM, but independently of the fact that Sonic is in it. If Sonic, Tails and "Robotnik" were swapped out for different-yet-similar characters I'd peg it as being a legitimately great show on its own. And you completely failed to understand what I was getting at. And what exactly is "furfaggo...

Re: New Sonic game for 2015

Forget interpretation, he's chiding a property founded entirely on an absolutely nonsensical premise... of not making enough logical sense! Sonic shouldn't be able to talk, stand upright, have blue fur, wear shoes and gloves, or run around really fast because hedgehogs can't actually do any of those...

Re: New Sonic game for 2015

I legitimately laughed my ass off at the cartoon, but people on Sonic Retro were less than enthusiastic about it. Maybe my standards are just low.

Re: New Sonic game for 2015

I'm a Sonic fan inasmuch as I like Sonic the Hedgehog, a big chunk of Sonic the Hedgehog 3, Sonic CD in theory, a small bit of Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure 2, AoStH, and SatAM. Everything else has fallen beneath my line of sight as I've gotten older, largely due to learning a lot more about t...

Re: New Sonic game for 2015

And this is right after I finished praising both Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic SatAM some several pages ago.

Re: Sonic 1 Story Boards

So it's now confirmed that Sonic was intended to have "shitty friends" since the very first game. Will people stop using that as lazy criticism of the later games now?

Re: New Sonic game for 2015

Seeing how Neo put my reaction to that better than I could, I just move on to this: I just worry in a hypothetical scenario where Nintendo did produce a Sonic game, or outright own the franchise, they wouldn't quite "get" the character (but I guess in their defense, Sega doesn't either..) Nobody "ge...

Re: New Sonic game for 2015

but come on. Sonic deserves better than this. He's one of the most popular videogame characters of all-time, second only to Mario.

Re: We few, we happy, we Smash Bros. in arms.

Of all the reasons to call him relevant, you pick his stats. How 'bout the fact that he was one of the 'mons lucky enough to get two Mega forms at all? Or that recent movie where he had a starring role alongside Genesect? And how would Greninja make Mewtwo "redundant"? They're absolutely nothing ali...

That's it! It's hard to believe 2000 was nearly fifteen years ago, but I don't think any company would put something inedible within a foodstuff nowadays -- that just screams liability in our litigious age. I feel old now. You're thinking of the Nestlé Magic Ball, which featured a plastic ball unde...

Re: Sonic 1 and 2 getting Sonic CD style remakes

You may be thinking of mint candy being Tails' favorite food.

The Sonic 3 section of Mega Collection's manual calls them "gumballs", but I guess you can think of them as capsules that contain power-ups. Like one of those prize machines that give out toys or little trinkets.

Dash: Standing still between lines is a staple of pretty much every cartoon today, but I dunno where you're getting the "underplayed expressions" from. Sonic particular looked the most expressive he's ever been, as far as I see. I like how overall this show carries the tone and humor of AoStH but pl...

Re: New Sonic game for 2015

I don't think anything about that came off as trying too hard. Tonally it reminds me a lot of Nickelodeon's TMNT, and as far as I'm concerned that's a good thing. Bring on the funny. Also, for a TV show the CGI looks unusually good. Has technology really come that far or is Sega putting a lot into t...

Re: New Sonic Adventure Album

It's the old D&D rule: The importance of your character's backstory is inversely proportional to how much of it there is. And the fact that nobody can settle on how "dark" Sonic should be is a big part of why I now say that the Sonic franchise was screwed from the start, just by virtue of being divi...

Re: We few, we happy, we Smash Bros. in arms.

I would imagine a solid chunk of the dev time went into getting the game to run properly on a handheld at all. I feel bad that they had to squander so much effort on two whole games. Focusing on a single game like they usually do would've probably yielded better results overall.

Which Mario RPGs did you play? Super Mario RPG parodies the fuck out of the "hero doesn't talk" trope by having Mario physically act out everything he wants to say.

Mario also got kidnapped in Super Princess Peach. And Mario is Missing! if you want to include that. He's not totally infallible.

Re: New Sonic Adventure Album

It's true that Mario games don't create the same feeling of awkwardness that Sonic games have, but that's because most of them don't have a proper story. All the atmosphere comes from the level themes and music. In the Sonic games, the story adds an extra incentive to go through the levels to find ...

Re: New Sonic Adventure Album

I legitimately really like AoStH and I was really happy that Sonic Unleashed onward began taking after it so much. I only wish Orbot and Cubot really were Scratch and Grounder, though.
