  1. People are specifically talking about recycling in-game assets, such as models and textures. For example, Forces reused a lot of models and textures for the levels from Lost World and Generations. The in game assets of S4 wouldn't be suitable because they're of a completely different quality and style, same for the storybooks. It doesn't mean that inspirations from those games are off the cards, rather that all of the assets will have to be made from scratch. Considering this game's artstyle and the face that it's being fronted by Sumo and not Sonic Team/SEGA, it's likely that asset reuse will be minimal anyway. The Planet Wisp track doesn't really borrow anything from the Generations or Colours outings. It's all the same base concepts, but entirely remade.

    The Octo Expansion is seriously hard! They didn't pull any punches with it. But the writing... oh my god the writing is off the hook.

    Sonic Forces - OST Thread

    Just chiming in to say that I didn't notice that the final Infinite battle theme was actually a remix of his main theme too. It's just so subtle, bland and different to the regular version that it's really hard to tell. It doesn't stand out at all.
  5. Not going to lie, that actually really made me laugh. Almost wish it was real. Having dialogue going on in the races seems important really, considering what this game is about. It's not just talking within the teams but between them too. It really makes the action feel more real. But the problem is that all of these lines, even the good ones, are going to wear thin very, very fast. I don't want to hear everyone saying the same things in every race, and God forbid they repeat lines more than once in a single race. There absolutely needs to be a huge variety of lines for each character and an option to disable the voice and text boxes (besides the informative ones about items on offer), or this game is going to quite rightfully annoy a lot of people.
  6. Footage and impressions from The D-Pad. SEGA are also line streaming here. They're pretty positive about it, citing that the racing aspect seems more serious than Mario Kart, with the karts having a lot more weight to them. They both say that it controls very well. Items are a part of the gameplay, but they aren't the most important thing. Specifically, they're agree that it's a racing game with a few aspects of battling involved, while Mario Kart would the the opposite of that. That's kinda of what a lot of us here have said about ASR and ASRT, but it's nice to hear it coming from non-fans too. And an interesting tidbit for those that might have missed it - the only way to get triple items is through sending and receiving items with your team mates. The Eagle Wisp is the equivalent of the Red Shell from the looks of it, but you won't get three of them unless they're sent from another racer. So you have to choose to use your single one to your advantage, or help a teammate out by giving them three to use. I really like that aspect. Racer stats for anyone interested. Sonic and Shadow are identical, but Knuckles and Omega, and Tails and Rouge are not. Sonic (Speed) Acceleration: 5/10 Boost: 6/10 Defense: 4/10 Handling: 5/10 Speed: 7/10 Tails (Technique) Acceleration: 7/10 Boost: 4/10 Defense: 5/10 Handling: 7/10 Speed: 4/10 Knuckles (Power) Acceleration: 4/10 Boost: 7/10 Defense: 7/10 Handling: 4/10 Speed: 5/10 Shadow (Speed) Acceleration: 5/10 Boost: 6/10 Defense: 4/10 Handling: 5/10 Speed: 7/10 Rouge (Technique) Acceleration: 7/10 Boost: 4/10 Defense: 5/10 Handling: 6/10 Speed: 5/10 Omega (Power) Acceleration: 5/10 Boost: 7/10 Defense: 6/10 Handling: 4/10 Speed: 5/10 Tails continues to be a terrible character: Omega continues to be a hilarious ham:

      I think Super Mario Kart 8 had an optional mode similar to TSR where you score points as a team?

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (December 7th)

    Even if the official stand here is that this is an all new Smash game, I still can't see it as such. It's prioritising refining existing content to create the 'ultimate' Smash game, rather than making new content to really differentiate it from what came before. It's the entire series put into one game, essentially. I'm not trying to undersell it or imply it's any less than the grandiose package that it is, but this just isn't an all new game in my eyes. They picked the right name for it.

    Sonic Adventure Port pack and rework on Unreal Engine

    I'm sorry, but I don't think that this looks very good. I've seen numerous old games recreated in the Unreal Engine, and the end result is always the game. The original low quality models and textures bungled into the new engine with excess lighting effects, clashing art styles and bizare mismatches in detail. You've got the realistic grass, water and bloom in the Mystic Ruins alongside the 20 year old low poly models and 128*128 textures. It looks bad.

  13. I was starting to warm up to this game, thinking that perhaps I was being too hard on it. But watching that footage set me straight and reaffirmed that it's crap.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (December 7th)

    Why are we saying that Knuckles has replaced Shadow? They do totally different things. Shadow uses Chaos Control, whilst Knuckles sort of just fights like Sonic. Am I missing something here, or is it now impossible for the Sonic series to have two assist trophies? Shadow could easily be one of the most logical echo fighters in the game, but nothing is suggesting that he's going to be in right now.
