    Team Sonic Racing - GamesCom Impressions

    I'm wary of framerate criticism as it often is something that remains an issue until shortly before release, but even so the impressions aren't exactly glowing or anything yet. This game is turning out to be a let down.
  3. I guess the cars don't so much represent personalities as they do the characters themselves on a physical level. Vector's car looks like him, down to the teeth and spikes.

    Oh yeah, I've managed to get up on to the on the platforms by messing around with layer triggers in debug mode. But that was in a much older build of the game before the level transitions were patched in, so without the transitions the game wouldn't softlock.

  6. Does Pelly still exist?

      I have no idea what that is. I take it it's something obscure?

    I feel like it's worth mentioning that the idea of "slots" is bullcrap. I know you acknowledged this, but way back at the time Steve Lycett of Sumo said that because the scale of ASRT was so much greater than ASR and even SST that having clone characters was the only way to increase the roster size. If there was no Gum, Pudding or MeeMee then there wouldn't have been alternatives. He also went as far as to say that Billy Hatcher was absent because they couldn't make vehicle designs for him that they were satisfied with. Danica Patrick was only added to the game as part of a sponsorship deal, which likely helped a bit with the budget ala SOAP in SA2 (although we don't know the actual extent of either deal). I'm not going to say that losing all the various franchise reps was a good thing, and not even Sonic survived the cull entirely with Big getting cut, but it was a necessity. They needed to use characters who could share skeletons and animations. Also NiGHTS and Reala being their own vehicles was most sensible thing considering its actually a major part of series. It's the same reason that OpaOpa didn't have a vehicle in ASR.
  8. I walked out of an abusive job yesterday and then, in a completely unrelated turn of events, got offered a dream job less than 24 hours later.

    6. Kiah


      That’s awesome! I know people that walk away from a sucky job but they usually don’t find an awesome one let alone a dream one that fast if they even are able to manage that!

      Hope it goes well for you.

      @SupahBerry Previously a deafblind support worker, working directly for a deafblind person who's got no mental impairments at all. He runs a bicycle repair business. I left after being repeatedly called a "fucking wimp" and "fucking selfish child". In the month of August I was supposed to be working 60 hour weeks with only a total of five days off through the entire month. Everything kicked off after I said earlier this week that I don't want to work more than two days at a time at his holiday home, because it's just too tiring.

      The new job is something I did previously, and it's working as a research assistant at biochemical company, directly related to my degree.

      And thank you @QuantumEdge @Jovahexeon Megumin Academy @TheOcelot @Kuzu the Boloedge @Kiah @Adamabba @Failinhearts @RedFox99 @Dr. Detective Mike for the kind words.

      Congratulations on the new job! Hopefully you new boss won't treat you terribly like your old boss did.

      Congrats and good luck with the new job!

    What I said was that Cream is boring character and she's been replaced by character that's marginally more interesting but who also still sucks. I've got absolutely no idea where you plucked this idea about nobody else being allowed those characters from because I personally dislike them. Lol. The game has a limited roster, and they've made some unexpected and strange concessions when it comes to who's playable and who isn't. That's all there is to it. Let's not get upset about opinions now, cause that really sucks. EDIT: I just slightly modified this post to make it less antagonist. It's supposed to light hearted and jokey as is the previous one, but you seem to have taken it completely the wrong way.

    Explain this Nah I actually totally agree with you. Cream is just so boring that Omochao and The Chao Brigade make a more interesting stand-in. And Omochao sucks. Although the Chaotix are primarily a team, they aren't the most popular characters by any stretch. There's probably all of six people the world over mourning the absence of Charmy in this game. Espio missing is a bit more of a disappointment, but Vector has a lot more going for him. Silver and Blaze are too popular to be left out of a spin off such as this, and bringing in an odd-ball like Marine or (God forbid) Sticks would be a much less beneficial move. For as stupidly small and non-SEGA that the roster is, I actually like what we have. Yeah, it sucks that its so small and I'm not going to be defending this game any time soon, but at least it's looking like the best outcome for such a lame situation.

    I'm still low-key wishing for the final team to be Metal Sonic, Metal Knuckles and Tails Doll to at least somehow justify the Sonic R callback, although we all know that's not going to happen. I'm more realistically expecting to see Eggman, Metal Sonic and possibly the new character host guy from the boxart.

    Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game

    lol okay This would be interesting, and already I'm disappointed that this isn't the case. Maybe partnerships instead of three-man teams, and seeing some opposing pairings would have been great fun like in Rivals 2. Knuckles and Rouge are always a fun pair because they have the same end-goal for wildly different reasons, or Shadow and Silver for their opposing methods. There would have been a lot of potential here.

    Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game

    I don't even hate this. I actually kind of love it. Time will tell if nixing Espio and Charmy is actually a good decision (especially considering that Espio and Silver made a good team in Rivals 2), but I'm interested to see how this dynamic works. It's super weird though. I wonder why they've chosen to omit three characters from two previously established teams
  14. lol wat bro Do you know what criticism is? You're spewing a load of nonsense. Like, what kind of a point are you even trying to make? You're just saying that people are wrong for having negative opinions. If you want a point-by-point response, there's one below. But it should all be obvious, not least of all because every point here has been made a thousand times already. You can't compare a 3D kart racer to a 3D retro platformer on any level at all, so just forget about that entire comparison you made. The Riders games also didn't have big casts. And regardless of their cast sizes, it had no bearing on the fact that the TSR cast is small. With 15 character and 12 characters per race, there's hardly any variety in there. It doesn't matter if this game isn't a sequel to ASRT. If you're going to use that as an excuse to tell people that they shouldn't be disappointed by the lack of SEGA characters, then instead recognise that people are disappointed that it's not a sequel to ASRT. (And anyway the game is just ASR3 without SEGA characters. The name is totally inconsequential.) And with the small cast, they aren't going to using any characters other than the most common ones. It's not an am exciting roster. And no, it's not identical to ASRT at all. The cars seem to handle similarly, but the course design is very different to accommodate the team-based gimmicks, which frankly haven't gotten glowing reception yet.
  15. And it's kinda crappy. In ASRT, getting hit would barely bring you to a halt unless you were hit by three fireworks at once; otherwise you would just lose speed but keep going. This time, getting hit will stop you almost completely. And unless you're fortunate enough to have a team member very close behind who's paying enough attention to bump into you, you're going to suffer hard for it. It's a bit shit. You'll be suffering a lot from minor attacks. It's one of the major ways that ASRT was a more driving (/boating/flying) focused kart racer that emphasised player skill rather than randomised weapons like Mario Kart. That's not a dig at Mario Kart though. It's just remarking in how TSR doesn't seem to know how to make its mechanics work.
