Title: ITT: Sonic Games
Post by: Fusion on March 02, 2008, 01:13:34 PM
We know them.  Shadow the Hedgehog, and Sonic the Hedgehog 2006.  What's wrong?  They have contrived plot lines that are far beyond what we normally expect.  Humans play a major role (as opposed to a minor role) in both games, and the degradation of the characters involved is astounding.

First, let's use the fact that the entire third season of Sonic X, which aired in the US, was a product of 4Kids.  That's right, 4Kids was the one who requested that plot.  Ever wonder why Cosmo's design was so out of place?  Ever wonder why the plot was ridiculously boring?  That's because of 4Kids.  Ever wonder why Drummond was denied the job for VAing Sonic?  4Kids.

Let's also take into account that the third season we have here has never aired in Japan as of yet.  This is making me think: What exactly of Sonic does 4Kids own?  We know that they supposedly have the rights to the show, but are they micro-managing the series' as a whole?


Let's look at Shadow the Hedgehog, released in 2005.  Fans at that point were clamoring for a game based around him.  Since it had been 2 years since Sonic X started showing up, but the only thing notable about is that it's the first game to use the 4Kids VAs.  Let's zip forward to Sonic 2006, which had a far more contrived plot.

In fact, the plot of Sonic '06 was pieced together and looked like it was just part of a marketing ploy, as much as Shadow's use of guns was.  This made me wonder: Is 4Kids micro-managing the Sonic series?  They did get a non-existent 3rd season.  It's likely that both ShadowTH (game) & Sonic '06 were ideas presented to Sega of Japan by who else?  4Kids.  They manage the anime, and apparently someone at Sega of Japan thinks 4Kids are doing a good job.

Shadow the Hedgehog featured a muchly wanted character, wielding something that the fans also thought would be awesome.  The multiple plotlines felt like a gameplay feature.  The rest of it (story, gameplay, weapons) felt tacked on.  The fact it was rushed programming-wise is because 4Kids got impatient.  Hell, even Shadow's repeated use of 'Damn' was catering to the market.   Why do I say 4Kids was behind it?  Because let's look at the editing done to One Piece: You can easily see where the editing's been done.  Plus the fact the editing ends up completely silly or plotlines are replaced with cliche garbage.

Sonic 06 also has 'marketing ploy' written all over it, with an attempt to make the most realistic-looking Sonic game yet.  Of course, Sonic was back in the title.  By this point, fans were requesting a new hedgehog, and that's how Silver was born.  But they also wanted something dark, gritty, and have Sonic have a human love interest.  Let's not forget that some of the older fanbase was clamoring for another game like Sonic Adventure.  We pretty much got that, but it was far from being as good as Adventure actually had it.

I'm getting the feeling that 4Kids is doing more than just translating the anime.  I'm getting the feeling that they're the ones ruining Sonic's traditional games.

Update: Don't get too pumped -- Sega Magazine, the original source for this information, just posted a vague disclaimer saying that the info discussed in their article is back to being speculation. Sonic Unleashed is in the works with a giant budget, but the claim that it would be 2D might be dissolved by their latest mission statement: to "rebuild the Sonic brand and prove it could work in 3D environments." We'll let you know more about this situation as it develops.


Yeah, you proved it does work in 3D environments with SONIC FUCKING ADVENTURE. You lost credit after you made the shitpile that is SONIC HEROES.

It's going to suck.

Advice, SEGA:
Pretend Shadow and anyone after SA2 never happened, put in Scratch and Grounder, go back to calling Eggman Dr. Robotnik, give him a reason for evil that makes sense, go back to classic gameplay with no bullshit "new gameplay elements" because you're adding nothing new, cut out the cheesy lines, get rid of the fucking 4Kids actors, get Steve Urkel Jaleel White to voice Sonic again, and lastly, GET YOUR HEADS OUT OF YOUR ASSES AND RECALL THAT THE ONLY FUCKING PURPOSE FOR TAILS EXISTING IS HIS FUCKING ABILITY TO FLY SO GIVE THAT BACK TO HIM AND MAKE HIM A BOY AGAIN!

Still, the soundtrack was good, vocal shit aside.

After thinking about the title so more, I'm surprised they didn't go for an obvious literary reference and call it "A Hedgehog in King Arthur's Court (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Connecticut_Yankee_in_King_Arthur%27s_Court)", really with such an obvious title I think they indeed think of the Sonic series like Monty Python's Black Knight losing all of its limbs...

- “This time, however, some of Sonic’s friends will be playable. Each hero will boast unique abilities, and though the team isn’t ready to divulge the full cast just yet, we do know the identities of two playable comrades: Knuckles, who brandishes two swords at once, and Shadow.”

- Playing as these other characters is entirely optional. You will be able to play through game as Sonic, or switch to the other characters if you choose.

Well at least they made it optional.

He has a point. Sonic's design really only worked in the 90s. Right now, he's just... Corny.


When you think about it, SEGA actually started to realize this when SA2 was released since they made Shadow. Think about it― for what purpose was he created? To appeal to a newer generation, obviously.


In addition, it is useless to rely on nostalgia factor alone to sell a new game. For example, I would rather play (or hell, even BUY) Super Mario Bros. 3 for the umpteenth time than replay Sunshine or Galaxy. Sure, I liked Galaxy, but it just wasn't as great as SMB3.

I don't recall the rest of those 30 other attempts.

Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity

Those are all the racing in general for Sonic, at least to my knowledge.  Sonic Riders was given a good rating by a good portion of those who actually sat down and played it, and I can admit to, during my limited exposure, having a little fun trying to get into the wake of another opponent.

An interview from 1997!
Quote
Edge:Why did you introduce a new character instead of writing another Sonic sequel?
YN:Yes, it would have been easier to use Sonic, but we thought that people were expecting more, so we created a new character in a new world. We also wanted to take a long break from the Sonic series, so when we approached it again, we could make a significantly more advanced game. Many companies continually capitalize on their successful titles, bringing out more and more sequels until the market gets saturated and the players get bored. In any case, it is difficult to keep coming up with new ideas for a familiar series. We're only human after all.


The reason recent Sonic games suck... is because Sonic Team never wanted to keep making them, for over a decade!

If Oratario Tangram was any example, then I suspect this to be:

They'll find a way to fuck it up, don't worry.

I already said that.  Even if they don't, the fanbase is gonna bitch about something.


One of the many things I've noticed that fans seem to ignore is that the Genesis titles weren't always about the speed.  Getting through the level as fast as you could was a good incentive, but there were often instances where just rushing through at the fastest pace possible was the worst thing you could do for your survival.

Sonic Advance was the closest thing we got, but it devolved into "Jump occasionally, while holding right" at it's very basic core.  See, that is what the fanbase thinks Sonic is supposed to be: Just running and occasionally jumping.  Where's the difficulty in that?  Where's the fun?  Mindlessly moving fast and making twitch-level moves sounds more like F-Zero than Sonic to me.

But regardless, not only do the "real fans" want just Sonic running fast in a straight line, they also want very few characters to appear at all.  Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles at the max for playables, and Eggman, ONLY EGGMAN for villain.

This situation has resulted in Sega being faced with one hell of a dilemma: Just who do they cater to?  How do they cater to both sides while trying to be unique with each title?  It's this indecisiveness that has Sonic Team tired of making Sonic games because Sega repeatedly wants to pick up the ball and find out just what is right for the series.

They could've avoided all this if they'd let Sonic Xtreme be finished and released, though.

(http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2695/4265851561_8344ec5043_o.jpg)

Here's supposedly a list of characters that -could- appear as playables in that new 2D thing.

Shade?  Come on, there's already like 300 fan characters already named that.
And I'm not even gonna touch the name Mr. Needlemouse.
Title: Re: ITT: Sonic Games
Post by: UHMEEEEBA on January 11, 2010, 12:38:37 PM
I believe Shade was a character in Sonic Chronicles (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sonic_Chronicles) an evil female enchinda or some crap, had a friend who pirated it back in college said it was the worst RPG he ever played and he deleted it before he finished which is pretty unusual for him because he pretty much plays anything he downloads.

Is it sad out of that list Froggy is pretty much the only thing besides Sonic that seems remotely interesting?

The RPG wasn't too bad really. Bit easy and designed for kids but not awful. Better than Weresonic and some of the later 3D titles.

I'm more interested in another RPG than i am in whatever "big thing with a rap name" they churn out next. My idea of sonic improving would be simply applying 3D to sonic3& knuckles. Then removing a few of the glitches. (like the spindash through the floor when supersonic) one. Not an overhead camera either.

Big was in the RPG as well. And he was pretty fucking useless.

It'll probably be shadow. But if they were actually returning to roots (well sorta) it'd be Amy from sonic CD. Tails or Knuckles would be far more intelligent choices though, seems they've been removed from the start. Yep, sega has my confidence.

Meanwhile, Rouge becomes a prostitute; Tails.... well I dunno what he'll do, he might actually make something of himself; Shadow hooks up with Amy and he starts doing heroin and coming home and beating her and while she still loves him, she always brings up how she should've hooked up with Sonic which only gets her beat more.

After World War 2 the United States hired several rocket scientists that worked under the nazis and had designed a few of the weapons used in the war so they could win the space race before the commies.

So given the right circumstances they might hire Robotnik if it it meant they got to finish something before another country did.

I see it now, you star as Sonic with emo hair and a huge sword on a quest to find 12312 items (in one level) while flailing the Wii controller about in a way that actually has no effect on your attack you just do the same thing regardless of the motion you make.

It'd be called Final Sonic Galaxy 64.

Post by: UHMEEEEBA on February 04, 2010, 07:33:07 PM
Personally I'm more interested in how much they think they can charge this for and how much is in an episode.

The minimum cost of anything on the Wii Shopping channel is five bucks, and you wouldn't call something episodic if it's only two parts so it's going to run at least 15 bucks, probably more. This also begets the question how much is in an episode, the older Sonic games weren't exactly known for their length. If it ends up being a couple zones every episode I'd wait until all the parts where released before I'd even consider it personally. (the smart thing to do would be to make as long, if not longer than, Sonic 3 + Knuckles)

There's also the fact if it does end up being a bit much some people will probably react negatively to that.

The Sonic Cycle is bullshit.

First off, what's the triumphant return to?  Most of the old school fans have mixed opinions as to what the prime of Sonic was.  It's either Sonic 1, or Sonic & Knuckles.  You never see many people use Sonic 2.  If the Gameplay happens to be the "same old", again, what is the comparison?  The fanbase gives up hope mid-way so the reviews end up being a mix between bash and praise so fans claim they'll never be fooled again by the same old gameplay that they could count on which is supposedly a triumphant return to a form never described?

All I can logically get out of that chart aside from taking it at face value as a "fact" of the Sonic community is that everything past the original set of 2D Sonic titles is crap.  Therefore, the Sonic Cycle is biased.

Title: Re: ITT: Sonic Games
Post by: UHMEEEEBA on February 07, 2010, 03:23:08 PM
Given it's episodic each episode but the last probably will end like that, but with some sort of cliffhanger to make people want to play the next one.

Like in Tales of Monkey Island at the end of the first episode Guybrush gets ambushed by some woman and you don't even get to see her face, and it just ends like that.

I'm really not sold on the idea of an episodic platformer, it just seems like too much of an abrupt break in the games flow.

I decided to click one of the pages at random and read a few signatures, here are the highlights.

Quote from: suan
sonic 4 looks so bad that i will not buy it, ill buy sonic 1 and to those of u saying ur still givin sega money.. i dont think if the ones not buying sonic 4 never bought another sega product would still not affect them. So all the websites that say this are pretty stupid. Also we can atleast show them that hey we wanted sonic 1 and you would have got more sales and even more sales cause we would have told our friends and their friends and mor epeople would have loved sonic 4 and it would have been epic

Quote from: Arvy
I thought to come here and say you were all idiots.. but then I remember how much Sonic games suck now. Carry on boys.

Quote from: Holden
haha dumbasses oh wait this is sega.. you guys are fucking smart

Quote from: Nino
Ummm... Why don't you people find a form of protest against SEGA that DOESN'T involve giving money to SEGA?

Quote from: What?
IM NOT ACTUALLY SIGNING THIS PETITION. I WANT TO KNOW WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH ALL YOU PEOPLE?! YOU'VE BARELY SEEN SHIT FROM A GAME AND HAVE ALREADY DISMISSED IT! YOU CLEARLY HAVE THE MENTAL CAPACITY OF AN 8 YEAR OLD IF YOU BELIEVE IN THIS CAUSE. YOU ARE ALL PATHETIC AND WORTHLESS. CONTINUE TO ENJOY LIVING IN YOUR MOTHERS' BASEMENTS.

Quote from: Notarealperson
The point of a boycott is to financially HURT a company n00bs. By doing this you're actually hurting your own cause.

Quote from: Anonymous
Sonic 4 looks like classic levels slapped over a clone of the Rush engine, which (combined with godawful visuals) is a recipe for failure. Why, Sega? Why did you tout this trash as Sonic's salvation? But yeah, my vote goes to Sonic 1, a PLAYABLE game. Sorry.

Quote from: PsychoCutman
I want to state something, This will never work. Why? You "so called" Fans have always done online petitions every time something doesn't please you guys, and how far has it got you? Did at least one online petition even make a breakthrough? No. Will any of your future petitions even work? No. Why? because life still goes on. SEGA will still make the Sonic games until either the series die out or they sell to another company, and you guys will still be at your computers, complaining about what you don't like about the games or you just feel like complaining about something. Why don't you guys grow up and ACTUALLY do something rather than just putting up pointless petitions and hoping they will change something. Do you guys even understand how a boycott works? Your stating that you're buying one of SEGA's Past Products, and they're gonna lose money by you spending on one of THEIR products? Oh, and before you guys say that I'm helping you with this petition by putting this irate text here, it wouldn't make a difference anyhow.

HEY SONIC PETITIONERS YOU'RE A LITTLE LOW ON AIR

Quote from: .........
Hands up those of you that think this petition, or any other online petition has ever had the SLIGHTEST affect on it's cause. Congratulations, those of you with your hands up are retarded

Quote from: Phil Lip
You guys are idiots. This is like saying you'll never buy another Legend of Zelda Game because none of them could ever amount to Ocarina of Time. How can you say Sonic 4's gameplay truly sucks if you haven't even played it? And then to top it off you'll buy, a game from the company you're boycotting against? (I know its designed to boycott the game) but, that's what you're all doing.smh at you morons. And Sonic Rush was a great game. How bout you boycott something worthwhile like EA buying up the whole industry or Megaman sequels.

Quote from: RockManX.EXE
You are ALL retards =P The game isn't even out yet (or even finished) and your boycotting it! and you guys aren't even doing it right! For the love of god even if you buy Sonic 1 your still supporting Sega! Heck Sonic 4 EP1 is gonna cost LESS than Sonic 1! (comfirmed to be 400MS or $5.00) BTW on top of that petitions NEVER work. =P

Okay, Sega.  You'd better start releasing screenshots of the other zones or the sonic community's gonna take all your damn screenshots and piece together a full level layout before Sonic 4's even released!

Am I fair in saying that Sonic 4 is more a sequel along the same lines as Street Fighter e?  Everybody else in the community compares it to Megaman 9\10.

I wonder if they'll complain.

That was what more or less Sonic Megamix was. Unlike SEGA, it was merely a team of 5 - 10 people doing things "for free" so for the most part they got praise rather than complaints.

Oh yeah, on the topic of what the Sonic Community considers as "good"... I tried out Sonic Megamix.  It seemed good... 'Till I found the glitches.  Not worth a review, since I just can't push myself to try playing it all the way through.

The main problem with Sonic Megamix is that there was nothing really innovative or memorable when playing through it. The auto dash thing was new, however all it really did was make the game even more forgetful as all you really needed to do was mash A and Sonic/Shadow/Mighty would just home in on the next enemy. That and the fact that some of the levels ( i.e. Dark Fortress and Misty Maze) just dragged on so long that you really just wondered when the ending will come.
Title: Re: ITT: Sonic Games
Post by: Fusion on March 31, 2010, 12:17:19 PM
So, a few new developments... Sega might as well just release the game pre-maturely considering all of the massive leaks that've been happening (Soundtrack, footage of other zones) as punishment.

Though, even if they did I don't think some Sonic fans are even in touch with their own franchise:

Quote
It just seems that they only looked at the older titles and didn't bother to study why they where fun to play. In the classics, it was fun to explore the levels while gaining speed from rolling down slopes. Gaining speed with no work just seems to defeat the purpose of making a "classic" game. Speed should be an award for having the guts to speed down a slope and hope you don't slam into a placed badnik. Sonic "4" is just Sonic Rush HD.

Obviously the Spindash was an abomination, then.
Title: Re: ITT: Sonic Games
Post by: Vans on March 31, 2010, 12:56:28 PM

I bought Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing. It's actually really really good. It's just as good as Mario Kart Double Dash IMO, and better than Mario Kart Wii.

It's more skill dependant than most MK games, too. Sure, there's the All-Star Move, but there are some races where it doesn't even show up at all, and you can turn it off. Most items are pretty much just "slow down person in front of you or behind you" and it works well.

So it turns out that the entirety of Sonic 4 really was leaked in videos.  To the point that Microsoft even shut down PartnerNET for a short while to investigate (http://www.tssznews.com/2010/04/03/report-of-xbox-partnernet-shutdown-over-sonic-4-leak/).  And in the process, Sonic Retro pulled all discussion of Sonic 4 because of the leaked material (http://www.sonicretro.org/2010/04/sonic-4-why-we-did-what-we-did/).

Which I think might be a bad omen.  Sonic 4 was actually looking pretty good, but knowing the fanbase, I'm afraid that Sega might take a step in the wrong direction.  At least, as far as the broken base is concerned.

It's probably meant to be the third in the "Sonic and the..." series that has been Wii exclusive as Fusion mentioned. They probably just dropped the story book aspect as it just didn't go over well and in one occasion resulted in Sonic using a sword.

From the description the "colors" just seem to be similar to power ups. i.e. yellow turning Sonic into a drill which come to think of it wasn't that the very first thing they showed off in Galaxy 2? Regardless this seems to just be Sonic with power ups.

Maybe black will cause him to become emo and turn into Shadow.

That's not going to happen, even the worst Sonic games still usually make a profit for Sega. As long as people keep buying them there is no incentive for Sega to slow down production or increase quality.

There is some more info here. (http://gonintendo.com/viewstory.php?id=125891) It seems like Sega is trying to leech off of the Mario Galaxies successes.

De-listing games is common to make newer entries sell better by reducing confusion among uninformed consumers. People only care because Sega is trying to spin this off as them trying to make better the franchise better and less cluttered... when releasing three Sonic games in one year.

I really doubt Sega cares about doing a good job, with the exception of Black Knight they've still made quite a bit of profit on the recent awful glut of Sonic games. Heck I mentioned earlier back in this thread a few times were Sega said they'd totally do better this time they mean it. It's just an empty promise they have no intention on actually delivering on and if they do it'll be hell of a fluke.

Hindsight is a cruel mistress. (http://corrupt, adulterating shitbags.com/5661688/sonics-design-has-been-changed-for-nintendo-fans)

On a side note, Sonic 4's out and apparently the game has no concept of momentum and has other physics issues such as not being able to spin dash through a shuttle loop but being able to walk up it. Given this is the Sonic franchise these complaints are probably being blown out of proportion and it's still a good game... maybe.

The physics are a bit wonky but there's another thing that I kinda dislike the game for. It feels like one enormous Sonic 2 rehash. Even the final boss is just the Sonic 2 final boss with a pinch mode. ::)

Besides that it's still a good game imo.

Time to see for myself because the fanbase is really just terribly nitpicky.

EDIT: After the first level:

-I DID see some of these physics problems, however, it's nothing TOO gameplay breaking, and, as I suspected, it usually only happens when you fight the forces trying to work with you.
Solution to Sonic Fanbase: Get used to the controls.


-The homing attack is actually nice. Of course, I didn't play Sonic until the Sonic Adventure games. Interpret that however you want.

I haven't played it yet, but as someone who has played and enjoyed most of the sonic games i only see an issue with the controls and some of the physics if you DON'T play it in the relatively new style of "hold right"

I wish they'd left out the homing attack. Give sonic his invincible spin. Homing was great in 3D you didn't need to aim that much. In 2D it makes things a little too easy.

It's more of a question of whether or not they'll actually be able to keep this quality up, and this is Sega we're talking about.

Even with that however, Sonic will always be treated as a laughing stock for just how much the franchise managed to fall, it was at one point capable of directly competing with Mario for the past several years it has been a joke.

Sega admits there was "too much Sonic". (http://www.sonicretro.org/2010/12/sega-admits-to-too-much-sonic-again-promises-3-more-games/#more-2015)

Also that note that the 3 Sonic Games had goals.  I'm not sure what Sonic Free Riders was trying to achieve, but...

sonic recolors - THis game's goal was to be the good "pure Sonic" game.  The one that everybody would remember.
Sonic 4 - This game's goal was to piss everyone off and milk the idiots for their money.

Colors managed to be good by a sheer fluke, of course the guy is going to jump the Sonic 4 ship and say they intended for Colors to be awesome.

Also since Fusion didn't say it the dude also said we'll find out about 3 more Sonic games later this month, Sonic 4 Episode 2, the elusive 20 year Anniversary Title (hopefully better than the 15 year anniversary title... aka Sonic 2006), and another Mario and Sonic party game.

"Sonic Sez" is from "Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adventures_of_Sonic_the_Hedgehog)", the one with Scratch and Grounder. "Sonic the Hedgehog (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sonic_the_Hedgehog_%28TV_series%29)" (AKA SatAM) is the one with the whole environmental message.

Jango is referring to a third Sonic cartoon from the 90s called Sonic Underground (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sonic_Underground). Only reason I know about what he's talking about it is because Shout Factory mentioned it in their advertisement pamphlets in MST3K volumes, it sounds awful and not even in the hilariously awful kind of way, just awful.

Hey whatever happened to Sonic 4 Episode 2?

Here have some Sonic Generations footage Classic Sonic plays like you would expect in a 2d plane. Modern Sonic seems to be of the Unleashed/Colors variety. They both go through the same areas but with radically different routes.

So it would be fair to say that both Dimps AND the Colors team are working on this then.

Also given this it might be safe to say Sonic 4 was swept under the rug at this point.

Edit: Also some impressions from Joystiq which played a demo (http://www.joystiq.com/2011/04/18/sonic-generations-preview/). Also a bit on the story (basic time fuckery nothing to write home about) and confirmation the game will revisit a few different past locales none specifically named but at the very least something from the "Dreamcast era and the Modern era".

A PSN demo just came out. Sega however was sloppy and left in data in the game listing the games stages, bosses and powers. (http://www.sonicretro.org/2011/06/morning-hacking-round-up-level-list-bosses-first-music-rips/)

Naturally this is spoilerish to those who actually care about spoilers in a Sonic game. For those of you I will however tell you the list is rather anti-climatic.

On the subject of the sound track, during the five optional missions per act it will play different music from various Sonic games (http://spong.com/feature/10110509/Preview-Sonic-Generations). One of these will be a remix of Super Sonic Racing, supposedly a leaked German Game Pro video a week or so back I didn't see confirmed a song from Knuckles Chaotix as well.

Also the article, and this corrupt, adulterating shitbags article (http://corrupt, adulterating shitbags.com/5846911/sonic-will-meet-sonic-in-sonic-generations-and-other-amusing-revelations), gave some examples of some of the missions:

Racing Tails in the Tornado in Green Hill.
A new section of Green Hill full of collapsing platforms.
A race against Knuckles but all the enemies quintupled in size and presumably will play Super Sonic Racing.

The corrupt, adulterating shitbags article mentions SEGA approached Jaleel White to voice Classic Sonic but they couldn't make it work.

If you skip to the end of this video (around nine minutes and twenty seconds in) it has some footage of the the Sonic 2 final boss, it's pretty much a joke now. Be forewarned it's all in German though.

There's a new demo out on PSN and XBOX Live, it's both Green Hill Zones. If you played the last one Classic Sonic has better physics now so it might still be worth checking his version out.

Like the past demo there are a few assets in it that really shouldn't be there like the credits theme which is a medley of all nine stages themes,

Both the writing team and the stage development teams obviously had a lot of fun with this. I've written a few of those down in that spoiler.


Really my only complaints are that in Planet Wisp they go way to crazy with the wisp powers in comparison to colors where they were more or less optional (barring hover). I never want to hear "SPIKES!" again. Also the final boss kind of sucks, the other six are great though.

I'm indifferent on missions right now as I haven't played many, they only require you do one per world out of ten.

I only have a few complaints with the game.

- This asshole modern sonic keeps wanting to go left when I'm not pressing anything for some reason.
- When the game switches between 3d and 2d sections you can get stuck on a plane you're not supposed to be on if you were going too fast.
- What the fuck am I supposed to do on the final boss it doesn't make any sense.
Title: Re: ITT: Sonic Games

As far as I can tell they subsequently took down the screens so here's another link. (http://www.tssznews.com/2012/02/14/first-screenshots-for-sonic-4-episode-ii-released/)

Highlights:

Same basic setup as last time 4 zones. Which judging from the screens are...

Tails co-op is back and support for online.

Special Stages are the Sonic 2 ones.

Quote
With E3 now in full swing, the buzz has been on what new reveals will headline the next year, particularly on Nintendo’s new Wii U. One such game includes Sega and Sumo Digital’s newest party racer in Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed.

In usual E3 flare, Sega kept a surprise announcement for the show as they revealed a car hidden under wraps smack in the middle of their booth. Game Trailers TV blew the secret early while interviewing NASCAR racer Danica Patrick that she will be a playable character in the upcoming game in a Sega-themed NASCAR car. Patrick will also apparently be driving this car in NASCAR events to help promote the game.

And here we were hoping that Sega pulled the trigger on having Daytona USA‘s Hornet as its own racer. At any rate, stay tuned for more E3 updates as they roll in as our own Slingerland is on hand at the show.

LMFAO THE MUSIC

All you need to do is add some shakes and flashes and it'll be the exact same thing as this:

Actually looks promising, sucks that it's a Nintendo exclusive :(

It does, but now I fear Sonic may go the way of Mario in rehashing the same looks over and over... I mean how many times have we seen stuff that looks like Green Hill Zone?
Title: Re: ITT: Sonic Games
Post by: UHMEEEEBA on May 28, 2013, 03:07:58 PM
Well they typically do other newer stuff after the green hill level as opposed to say the NSMB series literally using the same eight level archetypes across four games. If we get more footage and it's just other old Sonic levels on a cylinder then there's reason to be concerned.

Aren't the devs of Sonic Boom here supposed to be experienced veterans?

or was 'Ex-Naughty Dog' in reference to talentless interns who did some temp work that got grudgingly patched up by the actually good people?

I have not heard a single positive thing about this game, which is sad. SEGA's actually been on the ball with making good Sonic games recently... until this. I thought it might not be too bad despite the awkward redesigns, but I'm glad I held out.

And when you beat the game 100%, there's this:

Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal 3DS - Party at Amy's House! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yJNgZymZX_M#ws)

Just remember:

Somebody thought of this.
Somebody animated this.
Somebody programmed this.

And they thought, "Yeah, people will watch this and legitimately enjoy it."

SEGA didn't even send out review copies for Sonic Boom. Even fucking Sonic 06 had review copies sent. Once reviewers actually get to it, it's gonna get torn to shreds.

The lack of QA on this game is pretty amazing, I mean come on Knuckles can fucking infinite jump by pausing how did no one find that?

The worst part about this is that if they're not sending out review copies, that means they know it was a piece of crap that shouldn't have been released in its current state.

The big question is, why? The last few Sonic games were all GOOD from what I recall people saying. Why would they do this?

Also...

Apparently the game had only one QA tester. What the fuck.

Holiday season and the fact the cartoon for Sonic Boom launched and the franchise was originally made with the cartoon in mind.

The game is the shitty licensed tie in for the cartoon.

As predicted now that reviewers are starting to review it, it's taking a beating (http://www.metacritic.com/game/wii-u/sonic-boom-rise-of-lyric). Right now it's rated worse than Sonic 06. That's not too impressive when you consider there's only five reviews but still.
