  1. Putting this out there now, I've been on the Sonic Mania art team for the past year, and it's been an honour!  
    Check out the PagodaWest Twitter for a rundown of the full team!

      I think Aaron gave a shout out to you in one of the streams for the poster art.

      But still it must be an amazing experience! Congrats and great work!

      ^Correct! The SXSW and E3 posters I worked on with Sonic Team.

      Thanks guys. As someone who's been on this forum for I think over 10 years now, it's been surreal. 

  2. I wouldn't be surprised if the UI changes by the time release comes around. I remember Unleashed's changed quite a bit from the E3 builds.
  3. I miss the days when new games would get their own forum within the Upcoming Sonic Games forum. That always seemed to work well?
  4. Hmmm yeah. On first glance I'd say the original looked a bit more refined.
  5. Hmmmm, I'm iOS.
  6. Can't see it in the UK here...
  7. Facebook page has gone too, they were posting just the other day too. Sad times.
  8. ...Cancel? Why?! The collectors edition is the game.
  9. Surely it's all proportional to the investment in development time and budget though. I'd wager Mania is cheaper and faster to make than Forces. The end profit for Mania could be bigger than Forces without selling as many copies.
  10. If you've not seen this video, I recommend it. They go in to some nice detail! I loved this movie just based on the care that went in to the animation. You're never gonna get this level of rigging going in to Sonic though, and frankly there's no need for it. Peanuts is a unique example where the characters have (I think) always been based entirely in 2D and that style makes them who they are, same with Mickey's ears. Sonic's head on the other hand has been well established in 3D going all the way back to 1991. If you're specifically going for a 2D rendering style, then maybe - but even then I'd guess the amount of tech that would need to go in to pulling that off on Sonic just isn't worth it when again, we've already had the character in 3D form since the very beginning.
  11. Isn't there a stream today?

    1. Blue Blood

      I'm sure you can find many streams all over the place.

      I think so.

      Strike that it's starting now 

  12. Ahhh ok yeah I see what you mean. No worries dawg.
  13. Come on, seriously? That's clearly just sat amongst the grass, you can see where the actual floor is and there's blades of grass on top.
  14. That's the last day of Summer. No doubt it's a placeholder.
