Dunno about anyone else, but I'm diggin' the squash and stretch animation; Sonic's breakdance move being particularily awesome^__^ I hope there are many moves like that in the game. Surprisingly though, the CG looked horrible. I expected much more after I saw the Shadow trailer.

Storm looks great! Jet's cool, but a bit more could've been done with him. I'm still not sure what to think of Wave(Is he wearing clothes or are those his feathers?).

The voices in the trailer were very lifeless. That could definitely bog down the game for me... Well, at least the music was cool.


I'd like to hear a few overhauled remixes of Sonic R tunes in this as well , but thats just me=)

Yes. She is wearing clothing.

I never thought I'd see the day when Sonic's continuity in-games had 5 whole different female characters.

If only one of them wasn't pink.

According to the official website, Blaze is indeed female, which I, for one, consider a bit of a relief.

Bleh. Xtreme, schmextreme. I hope they release it for PC.

The characters sound like they came from Star Fox anyway..

No. It sucks. You must get it right the first time or you are a worthless human being.

It's a bit like crossing a street, think and make sure that everything is fine before taking action or posting.

Better pic of Eggman in Riders.

You have to squint a bit to see it, but Eggman is riding an air bike. Now all we need is Fang...

Oh, and IGN has the Japanese Sonic Riders trailer if anyone's interested.

Yes, we want Nack! (Sorry, but since we already have a character named Knuckles, I think the name Nack sounds better).

You're saying Fang is an invalid name because Knuckles was already named after a body part? Have you forgotten about, you know, Tails?

Theres a nice, big version of the trailer over at gametrailers.com, you can see a lot of the little details, like Eggman again [about 30 seconds in on the run-up].

For some reason it almost looks like he's in Classic-Eggman mode. He just seems rounder than the SA-Eggman.

Also, just my thoughts, but we basically have Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and their evil counterparts, Wave, Storm and Jet. We also know that Eggman is in the game, and we can assume all these characters will always be in the levels for the "Story Mode".

Now, I doubt Amy's going to be in every level. Perhapd each Story Level will include one extra character that'll change depending on the level? Like a cheap way of "unlocking" characters?

Well once you unlock the characters, shouldn't you be able to use them on all tracks?

Nova makes a very valid point.

Oh, wait, I mean Nova, that's a very invalid and incoherent point.
Sorry for the confusion.

I think is good that Tails is just a nickname and not his real name.

Creo que es bueno que Tails sea solo su apodo y no su nombre real.
