    • Welcome To Your New-Look SSMB!   07/11/15

      Hello! You might have noticed that this place has changed a little bit since you last saw it. Welcome to the Sonic Stadium Message Board - 2015 Edition! The moderators, Bmn and myself have been working really hard these last few weeks to make sure the upgrade from IPB 3 to IPB4 was as seamless as possible, whilst also taking the opportunity to update the look and feel of The Sonic Stadium in a modern way. So there are a whole bunch of technical things that have changed, as well as cosmetic changes that relate to how the forum works. You'll see your username above the main content area: click that and a dropdown menu will appear containing most of the options you need to work your profile. Next to your username are a bunch of quick icons that take you to Notifications and Direct Messages. In the blue bar underneath the header, you'll see an 'SSMB' link on the far right (next to the search button), hover your mouse over that and you'll see different sections of the forum, like Calendar and Forum Staff pages etc. Posting replies is simpler than ever, and a lot of the bugs that have been prevalent in the forum this past year have been squashed. (Needless to say though, that if you're seeing anything that's a bit wonky, do post in the Member Feedback/Bug Reports forum, as it will help us troubleshoot stuff!) The cosmetic changes are part and parcel of a wider initiative by myself to reinvent The Sonic Stadium in 2015. Did you know that this plucky little website will be 15 years old in October? It's been through an awful lot, and with the changing habits of forum goers and website readers alike I've been spending a lot of time trying to figure out the best way to present the site (and forum) in a way that makes sense for everyone in today's era. That's why you see a chop-and-change of some of the forum listings on the homepage - SSMB has been re-organised so that discussion is at the top of the list, and the more popular forums are front and center so you can access them much more easily. Needless to say, SSMB's butterfly change into this current form is a prelude to what will soon happen on The Sonic Stadium itself, later this year - a lot more housecleaning is needed on the main site yet, before I can fully unleash the revamped design. Either way, I hope you like this new look and functionality, and are looking forward to what's coming soon! As this is brand new forum software, there will naturally be some elements that haven't crossed over to this new SSMB immediately - namely Badges. We are working hard to get these back, don't worry. They're not lost forever! We're working on a way of getting them back to you.  Stay tuned on that front! You can comment on this news in the topics situated in the Announcements forum, here.

7.5 IGN.com

Not too shabby at all! Considering how much... well, I wouldn't call it "hate" more like... disinterest the Riders series has amongst casual fans. Only .5 less than SASASR (which was an 8/10 at ign)

If the writers of Sonic Colors are scripting the cutscenes then I might actually watch them, I can imagine Sonic or Knuckles calling Jet a "tool", it'd be kind of funny.

Oh this is crap.. I mean, this is awesome.. Screw that. I wanted to say the CG art in "cutscenes" is awesome, but it's CRAP, that there aren't any normal cutscenes. Does that mean there isn't even a CG opening as well? :angry:

No source, there can't just be imaginary writers making the script for the game.

The only Modern Sonic games to really have much effort put into them are Sonic Unleashed(HD and SD) and Sonic Colors. Sega loves their cash cows.

I agree that fully animated cutscenes are cool, but in the end it's all about the gameplay.

Ken Pontiac said himself that they aren't writing it.

Is this really a bad thing, we only wanna hear the voices. Besides between this, Colors, and Sonic 4, something had to get the short end of the stick.

Could I have a link? And are the writers of Sonic Unleashed doing Free Riders then? They were alright as well.

I'm sure adapting to a new control method and making the gameplay the best they could make it was more important to the dev team than script and cutscenes.

We don't know Ok, the Credits haven't been released yet, let's just assume the guys from the other two games are the writers.

It's nice to see that all of the Sonic games that came out this year are getting good scores.

I like the level at 2:40.. Looks great. The graphics are better than I thought. You can see Vector's scales(?)..

So there sonic rivals style cutscenes? sucks. i thought they would put more effort into this game.

Guess thats an alright score considering. hopefully more sequals of the riders series will have controller and kinect options and be multiplatform.

Art no offence but you get really emotionally invested waaay too much into the little things.
