  1. I think the fans stick around for big things like main games, especially nostalgia, so Mania… and if there was something to cater to Adventure fans, I'm pretty sure Unleashed and Generations sold a lot over the years. The budget right now is lower because of commercial failures such as Lost World and Boom, which were exclusive to a dying console like the Wii-U, but it still hurt Sonic. Still, doesn't mean they can't make good games and Mania Plus and Team Sonic Racing can prove that. Also, If fans love Sonic there should be a reason, for me it's his charisma, like he's a spitfire, impulsive, funny at times (depending on the writing), impatient and cocky, rebel, all those things, it's my favorite character and not just because I'm attached to him as a childhood icon. But yeah, he's niche nowadays.

    Team Sonic Racing Overdrive (Part 2 Coming Soon)

    Well this was definitely more Team Rose focused, which is nice. I sure hope the next one is Team Dark focused, because honestly Rouge and Omega are a goldmine of comedy, if people watched Sonic X and read Archie, they know that, Neko and the others better realise this.

    Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game

    I still want Final Rush as final track. I think Iizuka confirmed there would be 4 tracks in each Grand Prix so, I hope there is a fourth difficulty, like 4 regular cups plus the retro cup, which would mean 4 old tracks. That makes a total of 20 tracks, plus one new extra track that could be Green Hill. It would be in line with Transformed's Grand Prix mode and the 4 difficulties thing. Also, new screenshots in case some people didn't see them, from Sega press: https://mobile.twitter.com/SonicWindBlue/status/1106999106067746821 They include Hidden Volcano, Boo's House and Twilight Rooftop Run track.

    Sonic @ SXSW 2019

    Wrong, they showed that team gameplay spotlight at gamescom last year that went unnoticed. That was full gameplay but only 2 tracks. The team aspect is really underrated IMO, I get that it may not work for single player but they had a lot of time to improve it, so I honestly want to expect something good out of this, if it's not I'm gonna be disappointed. About the track amount, screw what I said, I'm expecting 16 brand new tracks like any regular game, even like MK8 without DLC, sans Crash obviously which is a remaster with some new tracks. I'm okay with that. Content is okay for a 35 bucks game. I just want it to be enjoyable honestly.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - PLEASE SPOILER TAG LEAKS

    I'd rather not have echos as DLC, but what I want from a season pass is… make some assist trophies playable, upgrade them to characters. Shadow (obviously), Waluigi, Shovel Knight, Bomberman and Zero would be Amazing, they are really wasted as ATs. Nothing against the current season pass though. Heck, I Always said I wanted more third party characters.

    Sonic @ SXSW 2019

    Honestly I don't blame those who are unhappy with the panel, TSR may be good but it's still a filler title, people expected something new as main game already, well it takes time, let's pray it's good (likely not), but in the meantime I'm gonna enjoy this spin-off, it was also about time they showed more of the game, so I'm not complaining. Just… give us an hands on now, for proper gameplay, and from the brand new tracks. Even though it's a filler title, I respect Sumo and SEGA's effort as does everyone, because I can see how hard they worked, but I'm waiting to play it myself to judge it better. I'm not gonna say "yeah it looks good" yet, it's only fair I'm not positive until I play it, but it does look promising.

    Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game

    Reposting this gameplay here: This is what I expected to see but I still prefer the bits of gameplay we got during the short and at the beginning/end of the customization trailer. Mother's Canyon looks and plays Amazing, but I think most of the tracks do, starting from Market Street and Frozen Junkyard from those we've seen, they look great, this along with the team gameplay are what sold the game to me. But yes, it does look better now. I'm just annoyed that we're getting rehashed tracks, Bingo Party looks good graphically, and there are enemies on the track, something I was worried about (lack of items on-track), Ocean View is still meh, Seaside Hill ruins everything to me so… I'm expecting 1 more rehashed track that is Egg Hangar from both ASR and ASRT. So far we know 13 tracks, 8 are still secret, which is good to me, I don't wanna know the Whole game. I'm speculating we get as final tracks: 1 Green Hill track as the final from the Seaside Hill world with Can you feel the Sunshine music, Rooftop Run Night Unleashed style, a Final Egg track from SA1, Egg Hangar, a Pumpkin Hill track hinted at in the drawing last Halloween, as for the Casino world… no idea, I hope we get Casino Night though, and maybe a Mystic Jungle track from Forces with Infinite??? The final track IMO should be Final Rush themed. I'm confident Super Sonic Racing plays in the twilight Rooftop Run. For the record, I'm getting this and Crash day one, they both look and play good, but both are so-so on content, uhm… but quality is great.
  8. Between the end of the customization video, the remix footage, the footage during the Overdrive episode, AND the new screenshots. There was quite a bit of new gameplay IMO.

    1. Thigolf


      But it's just like a couple snippets at a time. I can't see if the track looks interesting if you show me just 5 seconds of it.

      Except for the Casino one, but that's old, so we knew what it plays like already, so whatever.

    Team Sonic Racing: Customization Trailer

    Quick overview, gameplay is from these tracks: - Mother's Canyon, featuring Mother Wisp - Doctor's Mine - Hidden Volcano - Boo's House, featuring King Boom Boo - Bingo Party from ASR with that Bingo Highway remix - (Apparently) Ocean's view from ASRT - The second twilight themed Rooftop Run track where apparently Super Sonic Racing plays??? Seems like the ground for this last track changes Colors

    Team Sonic Racing Overdrive (Part 2 Coming Soon)

    The animation is good as usual, and the best part of the panel AS usual. But I also enjoyed the TSR stuff. AND they acknowledged Boom AND the comics. I'm satisfied plus they announced production of the next game, and no movie of course, which will keep everyone calm for the moment...

    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    Interesting… I thought Cream was confirmed for the arc, but this is likely just a variant.
  12. Jack the Shadow

    Sonic @ SXSW 2019

    My prediction time, with substantial content since they have a full hour for the panel: 1. TSR mobile announcement 2. Team Sonic Racing trailer that showcases modes, or overview 3. Jun plays music while we have TSR footage, maybe add a new track Bonus: Pre-Order bonus revealed, could be a DLC team... 4. New cover for next IDW issue + Tangle & Whisper cover 5. Modern CGI Cartoon announcement and sneak peek 6. Collaboration with Google maybe? Or another collab 7. Tease… whatever it is (could be either movie or a new Classic game with playable Amy) As for the rest: 8. Iizuka's birthday 9. Jasmine apparently teaches spanish 10. Aaron explains the clues 11. Some troll move before a reveal 12. Obligatory memes 13. Art and/or merch 14. A portion of fans is not happy

    Sonic @ SXSW 2019

    I think it's for the best, I know this is supposed to be the place for big Sonic announcements, but what if the trailer isn't ready? If we want the fanbase to be happy, it's best to keep the movie drama for another day...
  14. Last year this forum was very pleased with the reveal of Plus and Adventures. Now it's time for everyone else to be happy…

      If you weren't happy with Adventures then idk maybe you don't deserve to be happy 🤷‍♀️

      I'm part of the forum, so yes I was super pleased with Adventures. I just don't like how modern is the joke here, I definitely want more of both classic and modern.

    3. Blue Blood

      Modern isn't a joke at all here. The bad games are a total joke because they're bad games, but the thing is most people here just want Sonic to be good regardless. The fact is that SEGA struggle to deliver on that front at all, and it's only because of the runaway success of Mania (that was made by third parties) that "Classic fans" got what they wanted so much.  I'd like to see a decent modern game just as much as you, but I think  it's just so unlikely given SEGA'S recent efforts and their track record. Outsource any Sonic game, prevent SEGA from interfering too much and the outcome will probably be a good one. Look at Sumo's ASR series.

      And If you look at Forces, that game is special because it treated Modern and Classic fans fairly and have them both an equally crappy experience.

      Sorry, I didn't mean that "here", I mean in this situation, not to forum members. Sega and their recent failures with Sonic and the focus on Classic make Modern seem like the joke.

      Sonic's been a been joke since the early 2000's, man...

    Maybe overaching storylines and foreshadowing, like season 1 leading into season 2, Starline being in season 1, Whisper and Shadow, Silver's future, etc.
  16. Jack the Shadow

    Think we'll get two Sonic games in 2019?

    The movie tie in is likely another Sonic Dash, pretty sure it's gonna be mobile.
  17. Silver is next months Sonic Channel wallpaper!!

    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    I'll say it again: I'm really afraid to go back to the Archie formula of a long status quo/huge arc that takes forever, with tons of filler. I'll take the 12 issue storylines or shorter, thanks Ian. I really like when the plot moves fast, like Sonic.

    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    Oh I'm glad the comic is so popular that people want an animated adaptation out of them, like this:
  20. Jack the Shadow

    What game are you currently playing?

    I decided to buy Hollow Knight, it seemed interesting, mostly the atmosphere. And I do enjoy that, but it's likely not my cup of tea. I don't have a clue on where to go, I'm on Greenpath currently after the boss, but... Can I go wherever I want? If so, why does nothing happen unless I find the boss? It still feels like I'm forced to follow 1 route as in actual levels. Idk. I'm a bit clueless. Any tips?
  21. I just noticed this... IDW thread: it's too much like the games! Movie thread: it's nothing like the games! Lol, the irony is, I'm actually agreeing with the comments in this thread. Shh! No one can know my secret.
  22. New Aladdin trailer. I just wonder... with so many great movies this year, why can't Sonic get a good live-action thing as well? What's so hard to make about it? I know it would still get a lot of flak if it was playing by the books and give us a an actual adaptation of a game, it would have been called dull, boring, but you know what, I would rather have that. I kinda wished this movie to be wild and crazy, but crazy-positive.
  23. Just to make me feel a bit better about it, I'm gonna list my positives about the reddit "leak": Now the big wild negatives: I don't think the design is the problem here, not the biggest at least. I don't want to wait to 2023 or so to get an actual Sonic movie adaptation. As it has been said, it's not meant for the fans, we are a niche audience. Not that I'm trying to justify them.
  24. Well, I missed the latest movie drama due to being at the cinema for Captain Marvel yesterday. Was pretty fun.

  25. So now they want to market the movie for kids who want to buy toys? I knew this was a cash in but... Why not appeal to fans at this point? And by the leakers comments, they aren't. Eh, I know I'm not gonna be pleased by the movie then. The only positive I can think of is that both versions were well received, this thing at least has an audience who will like it. I'd rather have the PG13 version be final, since No.
