  1. Some highlights. * Sonic's jumping victory animation is intact and triggered by the player. * 50 rings doesn't trigger special stage ring, but special stages are there and totally different. * No enemies in the Star Light Zone. * Weird sped up music in GHZ 3. * Demolition orb is in GHZ. * Spike Trap of Death in Spring Yard Zone. Looks like a horror to try and avoid. Video also includes beta content from Streets of Rage and a few other games too.
  2. There are people on this board who were not even born when this board was created but are old enough to legally make an account to reply to this thread. I hate everything about this revelation.
  3. Some Sonic Nanoblock figures just got announced. (They look like mini Lego kits).

      Oh shit, this is terrible for the LEGO Ideas thing that was going on.

  4. How about the parts I quoted in which you completely lied at worst and totally mislead at best regarding the star system?
  5. It's kinda obvious isn't it? You can't say that Adventure - Heroes was bad. You'd also be really hard pressed to convince people that even Unleashed to Lost World was bad. Like, Unleashed wasn't the most amazing thing ever, but it showed they were going in the right direction, Generations was fantastic for the time, Lost World is just a bit meh.
  6. Pac Man Championship edition 2 is free on PSN! https://store.playstation.com/en-gb/product/EP0700-CUSA04944_00-PACMANCE20000000 (UK Link, unsure if it's on other store fronts, but just make an EU/UK PSN account and it should work on your main!)
  7. That's true, it does re-use assets, but can you name a game which isn't from a first party Nintendo, Sony or Microsoft studio (even then I think you'd be pushing it), that comes close to being the modern equivalent of that? I think you'd even struggle to find a comparable game in terms of scope and scale from the year Adventure was released, let alone a modern game equivalent.
  8. So I risk putting myself on the spot here by asking this but... What's considered an acceptable campaign length for a game these days? 6-8 hours? Can you please name some games which in recent years which have 4 playable characters which are actually unique in terms of gameplay and not just 'class' differences? Which all have a campaign that is the same or very close in length to the primary + 2 other characters that have equally unique gameplay and a slightly smaller campagin? The closest I can think of is Yakuza and that isn't separate campaigns. That's an example of the scale here, how many games go for that sense of scale at just something as basic as playable characters which have unique gameplay and campaigns?
  9. Except it won't. This is something I really need to talk about more and something that those who want it need to realise. Let's just hypothetically say that tomorrow Sega Announces a full on ground up Sonic Adventure Remake. It is not going to be a 1 for 1 Sonic Adventure remake. Sonic Adventure was made to sell a console, just look at that game in terms of scale for the time. There's what... 6 different characters, each with near unique gameplay style. each with their own music themes and cues, each with their own unique cut-scenes each with their own voice actor, some have really unique level designs despite being based in the same location. A full on 1 for 1 remake will be lucky enough to even be half of what the original is. The closest thing in recent times we've had to an adventure game is Forces, technically 4 characters with unique gameplay (sorta) each with their own stages, music cues etc. But look at that game in terms of scale it doesn't even compare, most stages are over in barely 1 and a half minutes. Some are barely 60 seconds in length. The last game we had which came even remotely close to emulate the scale of SA1... was Sonic 06, and the only reason for that is due to the "Amigo" portions of certain stages. Does anyone, truly believe that Sega would risk a 1 for 1 remake in terms of scale for Sonic Adventure? 6 fully playable characters, each with their own storyline, unique gameplay? I'd wager you'd be lucky to get half that. I'd almost be willing to put money down that if Sega did decide to remake the game, they'd only focus on Sonic... Or... They would totally re-design the game ala a Resident Evil or FF7R route. So you have a Sonic storyline, which cuts to single levels in which you play as Tails and Knuckles... I don't even think you'd get Big or Gamma as much as I'd love a Gamma stage. Sega don't make games anymore to sell a console, nobody outside of Nintendo, some Sony first party studios and a few Microsoft studios. I just cannot ever see Sega taking that risk to making a game in todays standards with the same scale.
  10. So for those who don't know... which is probably nobody who still posts here, I used to write news articles for the site. I remember you doing this before for one of the Sumo Sonic Racing games, you were teasing loads of stuff and acting as if you had some kind of contact who was giving you information, and I used to question you on this and from what I recall, none of what you teased or hinted actually came to light or I might add has even come to life as being part of some kind of cut content. So... Wanna actually reveal your source or justification for all these non hints you keep posting?
  11. Not exclusively a Sonic title. But a lot of people here play it and are in the Sonic Stadium guild. Sega have just announced that they're going to shut down Sega Heroes at the end of next month. https://www.sega.com/segaheroes
  12. For info. Yes, making A German PSN account will allow you to get Knack 2 (Which has never been on PS+). I just got it myself... I'm... actually looking forward to playing it, the first one is... OhKay. And the second one is also... OhKay!
  13. Sorry but what kind of tosh hot take $10 youtuber nonsense is this? This isn't a case of a simple sprite swap on the pre existing characters, they're had to re-code and redesign an entire new cast for the game based on the previous three titles and even create new movesets to account for the new combat system in the 4th game which itself is running off an entirely different programming language let alone game engine. And we're calling them lazy asses because the art style doesn't look that right since it's based off the older 16bit sprite designs?
  14. "Your video reinforces the idea that a Sonic Adventure Remake is coming, because we have no idea what is coming... so it must be a Sonic Adventure Remake." ... ... .... There used to be a snooker table in this pub. I mean... How do I respond to this... you literally admit multiple times in your reply that my comments are right, that everything people say points to an adventure remake is false, baseless and... doesn't mean anything.. I just.. How can even come to the conclusion that it reinforces the rumours lol? The obvious explanation... it's not tied to a game, it's tied to popular movies and even a Christmas film. Like I said in the video, it's paralleling star wars. The chao in space segments contain pretty much multiple story elements from Star Wars, what big film was released a few days after? Star Wars. However it also has a subplot of Eggman trying to steal the christmas gifts. Which in itself is a mini parallel to The Grinch, he's even dressed in a Santa suit. Not everything has to be tied to a game.
  15. (vid) I decided to go through all the Sonic Adventure Remake rumours and.... lol!

      I just watched it now, it's a great video!

  16. Was Sonic Boom 2011 the first Official Sonic Convention in the US?

    For some reason my Brain seems to think there was another one that was earlier?

    1. Indigo Rush

      I almost forgot Sonic Boom was a thing.

      I also forget, why haven't they tried another one? I recall them having a reason...

  17. Literally my entire YouTube channel! What do you want? Sonic themed stage plays? Mascot costumes? Animations? Giant statues? Come on down it's all here!

  20. I don't know why I made this...


  21. Ok so... that bus I mentioned on the previous page. This one. I said it wasn't possible to track in real time... well... IT IS! https://lvf.io/ Enter the registration plate... LTZ1764 The site will now tell you where the bus is! I've tried it and whilst I can verify it. It does seem to work! It even shows that the bus is registered as being the "Sonic" Bus!
  22. So.... Something rather unexpected happened to me when I was in London this week!
