  1. Announcing the Sonic Adventure Remake directed by Morio Kishimoto, with 3D design only on boosting sections and the rest being 2D. Please be excited.

  2. Yesterday the 35th anniversary event of Dragon Quest revealed 5 new games including the new big DQ12 over the course of an hour. SEGA on the other hand after a long time with not even any re-releases only gives us 12 minutes that most likely only show one game related thing.

    I really don't understand why SEGA insists on being piss poor like this.

  3. It's important to remember that Roger was the one that left originally according to him, he was never fired:

      Or was that just an interview given to appease PR standards?

    2. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      Yeah I'm sure he left on his own accord. It's not like he didn't enjoy voicing the role for 10 years only and just stopped out of the blue. That's why all the other VA's were in panic mode for a while  huh?

      @Jovahexeon The Undyne Well, unless you have evidence of that, I would like to believe him since he's not known for being a liar.

      I don't really have much if any love for SEGA, but I only accuse if I have evidence.

      Can you prove what you say @Dejimon11 ?

    4. VisionaryofSUPER

      VisionaryofSUPER

      When you've left a role I don't think you're required to do anything for PR. The only thing is saying he left is much better on his resume than being fired.

    5. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      @ppppYou misunderstand if you think I'm calling him a liar.

      No person who wants to keep working in the industry will just straight up say in a podcast that a company fired him. The company won't be as willing to work him anymore, other companies might be scared to be badmouthed by him if they choose to hire him and then later decide not to use him anymore... There's nothing to gain for Roger to straight up admit it. Only to lose.

      I'm not denying there's a chance he didn't leave on his own accord. But I don't think him not saying "This company kicked me out!" on a public podcast any employer can listen to is strong evidence to say he wasn't fired.

    7. Dejimon11

      I'm too lazy but i just remembered that Mike Pollock was tweeting out a storm saying he can't confirm or deny & kept posting some cryptic shit. And then Cindy confirmed that she wasn't voicing amy anymore.

      @Thigolf Well, Roger's interview is the only thing we have to go on though. Are we just gonna assign blame to SEGA without being sure it was them?

    9. VisionaryofSUPER

      VisionaryofSUPER

      @ThigolfIdk, there are ways to say you've been fired without badmouthing the company and I'm sure we've seen it before.

      Outright saying he left feels different to me.

    10. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      Roger also liked a tweet saying that voice actors never quit voluntarely before going on the podcast and saying this isn't how it worked. 

      Regardless, relistening to the podcast, he implies was very displeased by how he was being treated and that's why he moved on. Which doesn't sound much better than being fired, tbh.

      No matter what happened, it doesn't sound like this wasn't in part Sega's fault. Roger wouldn't be saying he'd be done with Sonic with a broken heart only to come back happily after a couple months. Something happened how Sega treated him one way or another.

    11. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Everything felt very off, with a lot of other VAs like Tara calling the company out. Basically,  any VA who was in a position capable of calling them out for it.

      There really is no definitive answer in either direction, whether Roger left due to crappy conditions or Sega did oust him. Either is very well liable to have happened. 

    12. VisionaryofSUPER

      VisionaryofSUPER

      I mean, yeah. I never said SEGA wasn't treating him bad, just that he wasn't fired. Which I think is the important part because somehow SEGA managed to patch things up with him that he felt compelled to return.

    13. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Like @Thigolf also said, while he couldn't confirm it outright, he did give likes in support of tweets that suggested he was ousted.

      The morale is that often, statements like these, given under non ideal circumstances can't always be taken at face value, given all the context at play.

    14. VisionaryofSUPER

      VisionaryofSUPER

      If he was totally fired, then I don't see the point of SEGA rehiring him, or him being happy to take the role again. Like I can imagine things being bad and then him quitting out of protest of the conditions which may as well be similar to firing, but I feel like saying it's him being fired takes away from underlying problems of the situation.

    15. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      Yeah, I can agree with that. I just wanted to put out the situation that, in a industry all about professionalism, him not saying he was fired doesn't mean he wasn't, but I don't think it happened in this situation. All signs point to him being treated improperly, and I also agree that this is probably a more telling problem.

  4. I wonder why they changed to a different main theme when going from Sonic 3 to Sonic 3K, considering S3's main theme was by Tomonori Sawada, not any of the western guest composers.

  5. pppp

    "I'm not sure I even knew what bad writing WAS until I had that experience."

    Huh. I'm curious, so what do you think of FF13's writing after that experience? xD

    1. T-Min

      dude

      believe me

      there is no video game out there as bad as some of the shit I had to read

       

  6. So remember the Xbox One's Always Online DRM from 2013? Turns out it's back with a vengeance on the Series X:

      Really hate how anti-consumer this industry has become.

      They have the power to take away the products we bought with money whenever they want :/.

  7. You know, Sonic 3K is still being sold on Xbox and Steam, if the game is on copyright limbo then how come?

    1. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

      might be a thing where existing releases of the game are grandfathered in somehow to still be sellable. or maybe the jackson estate just doesn't even know about those and the second someone tells them they will vanish forever, in which case sshh

    2. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      You'd be surprised on what you can put onto Steam.

      Probably because it's a simple emulator and not a remake or remaster (like the mobile ports are). They are still essentially selling you a copy of S3K for the Genesis.

    5. TheOcelot

      TheOcelot

      SEGA eventually stopped releasing the original roms on new hardware; they never released the roms on PSN. So it sounds like they got scared. It's strange they didn't take the roms down from other platforms (Steam, Xbox etc).

  8. Sonic Colors may be far from perfect, but truth be told it was the last Sonic Team game to have no nostalgia pandering. All of its level tropes are fresh and creative and there are no Classic elements of any kind, aside from some minor unintrusive stuff like the Alien capsule at the end of stages being like the Flicky capsules.

    1. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      some of the sonic simulator stages are based on sonic 1 levels. that makes them classic, and therefore pandering, and therefore, bad.

    2. Soniman

      Soniman

      Sonic Simulator has Sonic 1 level layouts. SMH thanks for the nostalgia pandering Sega 

    3. pppp

      Meh. that's side content and like Dio said, it's only some of them. Some fanservice here and there is not bad, I don't agree with the mentality that we're never allowed to have references period.

      @AWild No.1 washed up gamer So the alien capsule and some stages in the simulator being from Sonic 1 suddenly erases what the actual main stages bring to the table?

    6. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Generations gets a free pass because it was unabashedly Far Service: The Game. It was so exciting to see Green Hill returning there. Following games soured what Generations did, but it deserves credit for being as novel as it was. Colours as the last game that was wholly original shouldn't be understated either though. Every single one of its levels was incredibly unique for the series, and really interesting to boot. I still adore Aquarium Park.

    7. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      I hope Colors Ultimate redoes the level design in a major way to play more like Generation's modern stages. If there has to be 2D in there, it'd be great if it actually played like a classic game with curves and momentum physics (or the DS version?), but I'm just pipedreaming.

    8. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      > redone level design
      > less 2D
      > better physics

      The last game they made was Forces. 

    9. Soniman

      Soniman

      To be fair Sonic Lost World has "original" concepts to itself. Not really original if you ever played any Mario game but in the context of Sonic it doesn't really Nostalgia pander to old tropes beyond the checkered asthetic of SLW and a casino level trope I guess 

    10. Indigo Rush

      AWild No.1 washed up gamer

      @pppp I was agreeing with you in that stuff was minor and I also felt like the simulator stages with sonic 1 level design was minor as well since they are optional.

  9. So basically 6 FREAKING YEARS LATER, only now 343 decides to fix Halo 1's graphics of the MCC. Nevermind the fact that this should have been done before release.

  10. Does anybody know when SEGA gave their last official news update on TSR? I wanna make a count of SEGA's days of radio silence.

    1. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      Pretty sure they stopped talking about the game once the launch trailer dropped.

  11. Anne With An E has so much pointlessly ramped up drama that leads to nothing. The strong restraint from the book is nowhere to be seen.

  12. I really don't get why couldn't SEGA just announce the delay themselves before. Once again we had to find out what's going on via unintentional means on SEGA's part. What exactly do they think they're accomplishing by going radio silent like this? Hey SEGA you know that twitter page you keep spouting memes on? Maybe you could use it to keep us updated on the situation instead. Crazy idea I know but just a thought. Colors Ultimate is actually something I'm actually looking forward to since I haven't revisited that game in a few years and I want a new Platinum Sonic trophy(Every Sonic platformer game on PS3/PS4 I have all trophies for them) to add to my collection. Just announce it SEGA.

      Could be a stocks thing. If I recall correctly, when Nintendo announced that they were pushing back Animal Crossing a couple of years back, the stocks took a hit.

      I don't know much about large companies and that sort of thing. I'm pretty much grasping at straws.

  13. Rift Apart's main theme is pretty darn good:

     

    1. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      It's alright enough, better than the 2016 game at least.

      I'd love it if Rift Apart's main OST could really knock us away though, bring us back to the super catchy days of the PS2 games. I love the series to bits, but the soundtracks took a major hit after Deadlocked.

  14. With Sonic Forces apparently being put on PS5/XSX I can picture it now: Colors,LW and Forces will be physically released as the "Kishimoto Collection".

    1. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      Well at least I'll fully enjoy one of those games in that collection. 

  15. OK So apparently Sonic Forces is gonna be re-released for next-gen platforms:

     

    It's not even just a patch to enhance the game on these consoles, it's an outright new release separate from the 2017 one.

      The next gen Colors re-release should be close by at this point, and perhaps this is a sign of even more re-releases like them to come

      Now all that’s left is a LW re-release and the triangle of my complete disappointment will be complete.

      But....Why? Didn't Sega go out of their way to delist the less popular games a few years back? I really don't get the mentality behind this choice.
