  1. Because that's not really the style of gameplay Sonic is built for. Things like the Red Rings in Generations are fine, they're completely optional and sprinkled along the paths, but like, when we get into things like the Sun/Moon medals or the Treasure Hunting where slowing down to find things is the entire point? That's counter intuitive for the kind of game Sonic is. If you make someone like Knuckles the star and not Sonic, then sure, maybe?
  2. Maybe not base Sonic, but Indigo Rush made an interesting suggestion on Twitter not too long ago: maybe let Super Sonic swim underwater, sort of with NiGHTS Into Dreams controls? That could be fun. Opens up a lot of possibilities for level design. Sonic Colors' handling of "swimming" where Sonic can just jump infinitely is just really weird and I don't think I like it very much.
  3. Paying heavy thought to dropping out of college (and chances are I probably will). The only things they offer that are even remotely close to game development are the most rudimentary computer courses, covering topics I largely already know like the basics of Windows.

    And it sucks. It sucks a lot. Even if it’s for reasons that sound really good in my head and make a lot of sense to me, I still feel really bad about it. I can’t escape the feelings of “I’m a failure”

      I WAS hoping to go into Software Development but it doesn't look like that's working out currently. Despite being a pretty progressive school, they ironically don't have many options for tech outside of things like engineer, it's isn't really what I want.

  4. Missed opportunity? Kind of, yeah. Sonic Runners was great fun at first. But of course, we all know what happened there. There's not much that I can say that the OP doesn't already. I even remember getting SRA on the anniversary and like, somewhere within the span of three days after getting it I published a review on my review tumblr blog and a status here that basically said "Wow this game kinda sucks", and the replies I got were agreeing with me. SRA feels lesser in just about every degree. Sure, they used good music, but Green Hill just doesn't get my blood pumping for a good run the same way that Beyond the Speed Of does. It's the worst. It's just the worst. They removed the microtransactions, but they ended up charging for a game that looks, sounds, and plays a lot lesser than the game it was supposed to replace.
  5. Well see the problem with that is that's a temporary fix at best. Sonic Forces was almost entirely new people and that's one of the most divisive Sonic titles in quite some time. The problem lies more with Sega's management than anything.
  6. So Mufasa's death from the remake got leaked and

    Holy shit it's so bad it's hilarious and painful

      Does Simba have no emotion on his face?

      I bet he has no emotion on his face.

      Does it make this leak of the early version if this scene look like a masterpiece?

      Eh, I’m waiting for the live action Mulan anyway. I’ve liked much of the live action Disney remakes, but the Lion King has some big shoes to fill.

      @SupahBerry that’s the best version clearly

      They... removed all menace from the line "Long Live the King"... Why?

      Though I can now listen to the score. THIS is what I'm interested in. Screw the crap visuals. Scrap the crap acting. I'm here for Hans Zimmer.

      why the fuck is Simba smiling in that Kingdom Hearts cutscene?

      Cause they lazy. No seriously, cub/lion Sora has actual facial animations but cub simba just has that static face the entire time. I guess they figured since it was one scene it wasn’t worth the hassle

  7. Then there is no way to "fix" the movie. If Paramount insists on putting out a nightmare, well, just another addition to the ever growing pile of crap this franchise already has, I suppose.
  8. EDIT: My apologies. I misread the question. Anyways, yes, there is a patch. It comes with this, if I remember correctly: https://gamebanana.com/tools/6329 Just click "Disable CD check" in the options.
  9. Yeah, I'm not buying the whole "We were with you!" thing. Sure, Sonic looking less like something I'd see at the foot of my bed during an episode of sleep paralysis is nice, but that still leaves a cavalcade of unfunny jokes, dated CG, annoying, bland and dumb human characters that take center stage...the design is only the most obvious and most horrific problem that we can see from the one, single, bad trailer they put out. The problem with the movie is the very concept. Just as a band-aid won't heal a broken arm, a simply design fix won't fix a movie that's doomed to fail. The only way to truly "fix" this movie now is to scrap everything and start over from scratch. Maybe get better writers this time.
  10. Of all the bad takes I've seen, people arguing that we're morally obligated to see the Sonic movie if we said anything bad about design is among the dumbest.

      God, people are so annoying sometimes...

      What part of “if you don’t want to see it, don’t see it; if you do want to see it, go see it” is so hard for some folks to understand? People aren’t even obligated to follow Sonic as a whole, let alone watch the movie...

      Like, I wasn't even saying the design should be changed. I made fun of how bad and awful I thought their original design was, sure, but I never once said "Change it", I probably wouldn't like the movie regardless of what design they used. Classic, Modern, Boom, whatever the hell it is they were going for with the movie, doesn't make a difference to me. It's...basically the entire concept of the movie that's the issue with me.

  11. Of all the dumb defenses, "Wait until it's out to judge it" is probably the worst.

    Like, pre-release is the absolute best time to judge things because that's when there's still a tiny bit of hope that it could change. Once it's out it's too late.

    Not to mention pre-release material literally exists to be judged. If studios wanted nobody to say absolutely anything at all about their show/comic/game/movie/whatever, then why would they give interviews about it, put out trailers, screenshots, etc.

      I hope all the people that say "Don't judge until the final release!" are not the same people who pre-order everything. HA! Because pre-ordering is basically making a judgment call that it is something worth your time based on only pre-release info.

  12. The difference is those are now established elements of the franchise. You can argue they're poorly established, sure. But they're established all the same and at least were kind of worked in to fit into Sonic's world. What's Tom the Cop and *flips through IMDb* Minivan Kid's excuse?
  13. At least those are familiar elements (for better or for worse) that would make it feel more like a Sonic thing. This has none of those things. There's a reason none of the games with G.U.N ever focused on individual troops and had them team up with Sonic. Because nobody cares about characters like Tom the Cop or Jerry the Used Car Salesman
  14. Sorry, but no. Apologies are useless unless action is taken to make sure improvement is made, and by that token, I'm not giving them brownie points for fixing a problem that they created and that shouldn't have existed in the first place.
  15. "But rarely is the question asked, is our children learning?"
