      The fact that MadWorld and Anarchy Reigns have not been ported despite the Bayonetta and Vanquish one proving to be successfull is another proof.
      Also, the Yakuza studio has hinted subtly multiple times they'd want Binary Domain to be played by modern audiences but can't do much about it rn.
      And let's not forget the Valkyria Chronicles studio that knows the pain of the audience that can't have 2 and 3 on the same platforms of the others (especially 3 since it has never been localized) but at the moment are not able to do anything.

      Very few things regarding twitter bs really rustles my jimmies enough to make me vocal (mainly because I still mainly use the app as an image and meme viewer like Tumblr was) but this shit is kind of one of those times.

      Like if you’re under NDA then just shut up. If you actually know something without it then fucking say it, damn. Hate this guessing shit. They’re no better than the clue bs the official Sonic Twitter use to pull.

      I genuinely think that "mediocre" is too harsh a descriptor for Generations. That sounds too negative to me. The game's fun. Small, full of filler, has a naff story and cutscenes and only controls well when you do exactly what it wants you to do... But it's good enough. Its on the positive side of average, and a step or so above Colours.

      @Blue Blood

      I haven't played Gen in years because I have no desire to a play game with a crap story, mostly rubbish boss fights, the final boss of which is fucking awful. Classic Sonic's  gameplay is so bad, just as bad (if not worse) than Sonic 4 Ep1. The game progression-forcing the player to play some shit side missions isn't fun. It's generally considered the Boost gameplay was at it's best in Gens which I agree with-but that's only thanks to the level design, it's still the shame shallow gameplay.

      I know Gens is generally well received by fans (and was well received by critics upon release), but it does nothing for me.

      Aside from the option to play whatever music track in whatever stage you want (which is really cool), honestly I think describing Gens as "mediocre" is fair.

      @TheOcelotI mean... To each their own. Classic Sonic in Generations is fun, and I prefer his levels to the Modern Sonic ones. It's leagues behind the actual Classic gameplay of the Mega Drive games and Mania, but it's still enjoyable entirely on its own merits (unlike S4 and Forces). The Modern boost gameplay is never going to be my cup of tea, and the gameplay on offer in Generations is more of a side step to Unleashed than an outright improvement. I don't hate it. I just don't want to see it ever again (and I said this BEFORE Forces made it even worse)

      The boss fights aren't amazing, but they're okay. I tend to gloss over the quality of boss fights in games, unless they're particularly frequent or really bad and form a large part of the game. Basically they're all over so fast and never encourage you to back to them that I just write them off without a second thought. Yes, the Time Earter is awful, but the final boss is the last thing that comes to mind when I think about 99% of games, Sonic or otherwise. There's no reason for me to want to go back to it, and I can't bring myself to dwell on it when the core of the game is nice.

      The only parts of Generations that I strongly dislike are the 5 filler missions for each act (45 in all, with a grand total of 0 of them being worth your time). Otherwise I just think of the game as its 18 main acts, which are all pretty alright, and it's story, which is trash. The weighting goes to the main levels over the lacklustre story, and therefore Generations is fine.

      It's decent.

      It's enjoyable enough.

      Doesn't even begin to rank amongst my favourite Sonic games ever though, and it along with Colours got way over-praised for all the wrong reasons.

    11. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      Holy dooley I don't know what substance you have to abuse to think that Gens Classic is worse than Sonic 4 Ep 1, jeezum. C Sonic's levels actually have flow and spectacle and use platforming to maintain the sense of momentum and bounce; something Sonic 4 never got right. It's definitely not 100% Genesis accurate (RIP spinball physics), but it's really fun and good enough for me to want more. 

    12. Milo

      Milo

      Even if you completely threw out the notion of comparing which did MD elements better on the basis of both of them being terrible; and decided to just look at them in neutral terms. The amount of effort given in terms of budget, presentation, and gameplay ideas is clearly much more evident with Generations. The so-called "sequel as you truly imagined it" couldn't even be sold on its own merits ("TRUE BLUE INITIATIVE").

      Not to be rude and I'm late to the party, but I'm shocked Gens Clonic vs. S4E1 is even up for debate. (Unless we're talking about the 3DS version, which I'd say would be fair given how lackluster that is.) When was the last time one even played S4E1 to declare Gens Clonic is just as bad/worse. 

  7. Sorry, but we don't really allow these sort of image based topics these days. They cause unneeded strain on the server and can keep some members from loading in entirely if they get big enough. Locking.
  8. Honestly, I've been thinking lately and a part of me feels like that, whenever the new Sonic game is eventually shown off, it's only going to take a couple of seconds of gameplay for me to figure out whether it's "up my alley" or not. Like, what I look for in a Sonic game has been so... idk, discussed and well defined over the last couple of years that I feel like I'm going to be able to pinpoint that shit pretty quickly.

    It feels really weird to even think about it that way though. Especially after the whole Forces shit and the idea of not judging a book by its cover and what not. But like... again, idk. It's just hard for me to imagine shit playing out differently these days.

    Am I the only one that feels this way? Am I just being weird? probably

    1. Wraith

      Wraith

      no. i said forces would be bad in like april and i was right

    2. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      I'm more or less convinced the next Sonic game, like the last couple and most of the current media (I like IDW fine but it's not what I want), won't be for me so I'm probably not gonna bother with it. Only way I could possibly be sold on it is if Sega comes out the gate like they did with Mania and tell us exactly what we're getting, none of this CGI concept trailer nonsense like Forces and even then it'd be a toss-up.

    3. Soniman

      Soniman

      Forces definitely killed the "wait and see" argument for me. Even if it DOES get better if something sucks it sucks 

      I think the only time I've seen this work imo is when everyone complained about Gens Green Hill being  to linear/corridor-y and thankfully later levels did rectify that and Green Hill was just a starter level. But like I said that's the only time I think it worked and that was also a decade ago anyway 

    4. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Precisely 3 seconds of footage is all it takes to know if the game will be good or not:

       

       

    5. HPX

      HPX

      I'm right there with you. They've left us enough mid-to-trash games as well as time to wait and speculate that many have taken the opportunity to reflect on what they'd prefer to see from this series going forward. It's going to be pretty easy to see if we'll be getting more of the same.

    6. OwlEyes

      OwlEyes

      Lmao am I the only one that liked forces outside the awful storyline and this “build your own character” bullshit?

    7. Milo

      Milo

      I remember some people ringing the alarm bells when the first gameplay clip of Forces was revealed and it was just Boost Sonic running down a hallway of the not-first level of Sunset Heights for 30 seconds. For me it was that footage, coupled with Iizuka also saying "oh by the way, this game will have three playstyles" to start hoisting red flags. I predicted the game would be a unfocused mess from that point, and lo and behold...

      @Blue Blood Sonic 4 is a bizarre one in that I actually don't disagree with the argument of people saying three seconds of gameplay is too little to judge...but what the fuck kind of PR department are you running if you're hyping up a reveal of a highly-anticipated game and three seconds of gameplay is all you're going to show?

      @OwlEyes nah, there are/were a few around here that don't think it's as bad as people say. check the threads we had here about the game.

      This is just taking me back to when stuff like Sunset Heights and Clonic's GHZ were assumed to be first levels so even if they seemed kinda basic you could give them a pass. Then it turned out they were midway through the game and you just have to wonder what the fuck happened with this game.

    9. OwlEyes

      OwlEyes

      lmao fair.

      I really thought Sunset Heights was the opening level... Like, it was in the teaser trailer.

      When I found out that it was literally in the dead center of the game... fuck that hurt.

    11. Wraith

      Wraith

      Yeah I was actually late joining the nonbelievers in april because a lot of fans called ST's bluff with that first footage at SxSW. I just assumed that it would be like gens and the first level would be a flashy primer.

      It was the Avatar reveal that made me go...yeah nah this shit's done.

       

    12. Soniman

      Soniman

      I vividly remember Forces Green Hill classic being the moment I gave up. The awful music, the terrible physics and level design with Mania as a DIRECT comparison to make it look even worse. The game pretty much fell completely off my radar and was the first time I refused to pay for a main line Sonic with my own money 

    13. OwlEyes

      OwlEyes

      i love the fact that a 2D game with only 2 new levels and existing level redesigns trumped a state of the art 3D game LMAO.

  9. Could go either way really. Sega is a company prone to chasing the first bit of success they get so if they see these mandates as "working", they'll stick to them for a good bit. That being said, if something slips through the cracks that shows an opposite path and that catches on, I could easily seem them quietly rolling it all back. Keep in mind, a lot of this stuff is harder to enforce/ is really only down to words so it'd be incredibly simple for, say, Mighty or someone to show up in a "modern game" one day. That or they just forget about them all together. Like, I'm still not convinced they actually give a damn about any of this stuff with the slip ups and kneejerk reactions they've given over the last decade+. Just so long as it doesn't cause people on the internet to make fun of them like 06 did. Hell, that's honestly been their driving force for everything over the last 15 years. This all being said though, you'll absolutely have a hard time getting the majority of people to go against most of these restrictions as they're simply not that prevalent in the franchise these days. Outside of the comics, most of them really haven't made much of a difference/ showed up at all. This isn't like Sonic's original movie design where shit was right up in everyone's face so you had that large group rightfully calling them on their shit. Things like Shadow's character nowadays are really only concepts I see discussed by fans who are more in the weeds of this stuff really. Probably not the audience Sega truthfully cares about.

      Non of you but Bowser’s Castle in S. So you’re objectively wrong.

    21. Wraith

      Wraith

      Toad harbor is probably my favorite "traditional" track in the game. Got a lot of interesting gimmicks and short cuts without being too overwhelming or gimmicky. The atmosphere and music are top notch too

    22. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Okay if we're doing some real talk, my favourite "traditional courses" would definitely include Doughnut Plains 3. It's incredibly basic and is barely changed from the SNES original apart from being general scaled up in size, but it's seriously good fun. You can focus just on the traditional MK racing aspect of it across tight turns and bumpy roads. It's a great level that doesn't try to rewrite the rulebook, which tends to have mixed results that are either great (Ribbon Road) or a total mess (Cheese Land). 

      For the most part, I prefer the levels that don't go too wild with a theme, gimmick or just being generally crazy. Other top tier levels in MK8D for me would be Royal Raceway, Toad Harbour and Sunshine Airport. But then I do still live some of the more gimmicky stages too, like Dolphin Shoals.

      MK8D probably has the best overall track roster of any game in the series. Even if it's missing several old favourites of mine, the bar is just crazy high this time around. The only stages that I dislike in entire 48 stage roster are Shy Guy Falls, Bone Dry Dunes and Cheese Land, all of which are too densely packed and whacky for their own good. I'd happily play anything else, except Mount Wario one endless repeat which is why I stopped playing MK8D online anyway.

    23. Wraith

      Wraith

      MK8 is a high tier Mario Kart game overall but it kinda has a problem for me where spectacle was the focus over interesting track design. Too many of the new tracks are just...extremely straightforward with the big hook being a spectacular gliding/gravity section or something. Maybe it's just nostalgia but it felt the older games had interesting/risky shortcuts more often or weird track exclusive mechanics

    24. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      In terms of basic bitch tracks, I probably like Figure 8 circuit the most from DS.

       

      Given the anti-grav gimmick, it makes sense 8's focus is more on spectacle, as opposed to track design. 

    25. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      @Wraith Yeah, I can definitely hear that. To rag on Cloudtop Cruise again, it's really guilty of that. The section in the thundercloud and in the air ship are the main hooks and set pieces, but both are, in actuality, really basic and pretty boring beyond just looking flashy.

    26. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      I'm somewhat fond of Sunshine Airport. 

  11. Welp, can't say I'm too disappointed about this. Sucks that one of the last few games I was actually interested in this year is getting pushed but hey, anything to keep it from becoming the dumpster fire that was Marvel's Avengers.

    Though again, after the Avengers game and it's live service bs... still can't say I'm all that hopeful for this to begin with.

      I mean that’s hard to say since they haven’t released any gameplay of it yet. But I do trust RS enough.

      Will say that I would’ve preferred it to be... a lot of other things besides Suicide Squad but hey. If they have a cool idea for it then by all means.

    3. TheOcelot

      TheOcelot

      The delay is annoying, but better to take time and polish the game  rather than rush it out.

      As for Suicide Squad, RS did a top job with the Batman games so I'm confident they'll do SQ justice.

  13. I know we're still at least a good year out from seeing anything but with all the Mario fanart that's been thrown onto my twitter feed (due to Mario day), I am honestly starting to really pull for that movie.

    There is just so much you can do with these characters. Though, I'm also having the hardest time seeing how this timeline could ever reach that potential; for obvious reasons.

    1. Speedi

      Speedi

      I'd settle for something as basic as a retelling of one of the NES game's stories just with more of the newer cast tbh. The Mario series has generally presented it's world and characters in such a simple video gamey way that I don't have many high expectations for a movie being heavily supervised by Miyamoto.

      Just make it look good, keep the humor from getting too juvenile and I'm sold. 

    2. Sega DogTagz

      Sega DogTagz

      Still curious what direction they are gonna go with the Voice Work. Minimalist? All out? Have extra characters tag along for the sole purpose of free dialog?  Who knows

If you or anyone else has a problem with what a staff member is doing, take it up with Chris privately instead of making a scene.
