  1. Colours is still one of my favorite Sonic games, shortcomings and all, so I can't wait for September

    1. TheOcelot

      TheOcelot

      Me too.

      I've always wanted to play Colours on Switch & PS4.

  2. Lots of new Colors footage floating around now.

      This is still the old version I assume since tropical resort looks like shit here 

  3. I wonder if Iizuka would even be interested in going back to a director role if someone asked him (provided all his responsibilities get transferred to someone else, of course).

    1. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      The man definitely still has passion for NiGHTS and Sonic, so yeah, I could see him doing that easily.

  4. What if Sega sees the success of Pokemon Unite and makes

    a Sonic MOBA

    1. Wraith

      Wraith

      At this point I'm just surprised nintendo beat them to it

    2. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      Honestly, I think it'd work really well if they actually put effort in.

    3. Wraith

      Wraith

      same, but I've been saying that any time they've tried literally anything for 10 years now

    4. KingMario05

      KingMario05

      Could work. Just keep Riot (who they'd likely get to develop the game) away from any and all women working at Sega of America, and we should be in for a good time.

      Maybe Iizuka will play Pokemon Unite and put MOBA elements in the next Sonic Racing game like with TSR and Arena shooters

    6. KingMario05

      KingMario05

      @Thigolf Wait, how did TSR work in arena shooters? Is there a secret Doom collab no one told me about or something?

    7. Wraith

      Wraith

      I think he means team shooters

    8. KingMario05

      KingMario05

      @Wraith Ah, that makes sense.

      Thigolf

      Yes I did
      I'm basically completely out of touch with any popular multiplayer games so I don't know what anything is called

    10. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      They’ll probably make a phantasy star online MOBA instead 

    11. CrownSlayer’s Shadow

      CrownSlayer’s Shadow

      I’ve made comparisons to the League of Legends MOBA years back over just the lore and characters and how Sonic could take notes from just those parts, and some of y’all acted like that was the stupidest thing ever brought up.

      Funny how years later, people then warm up to the idea of an actual Sonic MOBA that even I think would be a challenge for Sonic.

    12. Wraith

      Wraith

      no I still think bringing up multiplayer action rpgs when we're talking about creating a functioning single player platformer is silly

    13. CrownSlayer’s Shadow

      CrownSlayer’s Shadow

      Then you still missed the points of what I’m talking about.

  5. I absolutely adore the vibe of the Deduction segments in GAA. It oozes in style.

  6. I don't think Activision Blizzard will ever convince me to buy any of their products again, fuck them hard.

    1. CrystalMaelStorm

      CrystalMaelStorm

      I can't help but think; not to generalize; but whoever keeps supporting Activision Blizzard after what happened, especially if they don't pay attention to it at all, may be sexist or just ignorant. I don't wish to say they are all bad, of course, but those, to me, are two likely reasons (though it's all not limited to those two reasons, of course). No offense to those who may still buy their games if there are any here.

    2. Milo

      Milo

      I'm kind of in a gray area where I feel like if you want to play certain games, but you definitely don't want to support the developer/publisher in question, you have a couple of options.

      Buying used/secondhand physical copies (if they exist for the game in question) is probably your best bet, since at least your money wouldn't be going to the business(es) at all.

      Buying it if it's on sale for an extremely low, low, price (i.e. the game normally costs $60 or more, but is on sale for $5 or $10), maybe; the argument being that whatever profit they do make off your purchase is practically negligible.

      And I'm being generous with the above two options. I don't blame anyone who declares "fuck it" and does turn to torrented/pirated copies of their games going forward, tbqh.

      All that aside--I'm speaking as someone who has almost never bought or played a new Activision/Blizzard game, and will probably never do so. (Maybe Crash 4 and Tony Hawk 1+2, if I could obtain them as used copies or if I received them as gifts, but that's it.)

      e: And even those games were low on my radar before the California lawsuit, thanks to the other bullshit Activision has done as a company prior, such as the dichotomy of giving their executives bonuses while laying off employees amid record profits.

    3. Wraith

      Wraith

      I liked a lot of their ips over the years and THPS 1+2 and Crash 4 were both GOTY contenders for me, but now I feel like I wouldn't even blink if they announced tony hawk 6 tomorrow. Just completely numb

      And to think me and the family had just started having a thing for Overwatch together. I don't know how to break it to them of these companies' absolute filth. Do we quit it and limit ourselves with what we can play over the net, or do we keep giving these misogynist attention and support just by still playing it? (Though I'm not entirely sure if that's how that works)

       

      Surely they couldn't possibly not have heard anything about what's going down, could they?

    5. AdventChild

      Trade in Overwatch for Paladins. It's a better game and it's free.

    7. mayday2592

      mayday2592

      I mean the Dev's who actually worked out the game deserve support and outnumber the bad eggs by a large margin. I don't condone thectipns of the company, but I personally have no issue with buying Activision published games for now.

    8. Jango

      Jango

      It sucks that the devs (Toys for Bob, Vicarious Visions, Beenox) hardly have anything to do with all this shit... Cursed be the day Activision adquired these IPs. I really hope these studios can find a great publisher because they're good people and don't deserve their work being screwed because of motherfucking Activision

  7. Make Blaze playable again you cowards

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Now now Miss Kitty. You are already playable, in TSR and across multiple mobile installments.

       

      Please return to your seat with the other ex-playables

  8. Mania is 2 bucks on Steam and TSR is 4 bucks

    The Sega picross game is finally out next month in Japan! (probably around the same time for the West, too)

  10. Ryunosuke's animations are freaking amazing, I love him

  11. Only male hedgehogs can become super, and only male hedgehogs can be playable in 3D games*

    *terrifying ocs that can also be hedgehogs excluded

    1. Dr. Mechano

      Only blue hedgehogs can be playable in 3D games.

      Now now, they gave us Shadow in Forces, let's give them some credit

    4. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      Tails is playable in Lost World if you count the Tornado stages and the animal-collecting minigame. (And so is Cubot by that token)

      We're really scraping the barrel here.

    5. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      Does the male hedgehog going super thing only apply to the Modern branch? Because we got Super Tails, Knuckles, Mighty and Ray in Mania, unless they are just turning a deliberate blind eye to that.

    6. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      It's based on a thing Iizuka said once. Maybe he's changed his mind since then and Mania's evidence of that?

    7. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      Oh if it's Iizuka then it's 50-50 he meant to say something else. I wonder if he meant to say "only the three male hedgehogs can do it" without clarifying further. 

      If it really is just male hedgehogs in general, then that's a really dumb but interesting lore nugget on hedgehogs as a race, and we'll never know more about it. 

      hedgehogs are saiyans

    8. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      But if he's trying to make hedgehogs saiyans, that still doesn't make sense, because female super saiyans exist.

    9. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      To be fair, female super saiyans didn't exist until just a few years ago. 

      But yea, it's honestly just for the sake of marketing. Sonic & Shadow are the series' most popular characters, so of course they get the preferential treatment. 

    10. Jango

      Jango

      Tails and Knuckles getting super-cock-blocked at the end of Sonic Heroes is something I'll never forgive Iizuka for, I don't care how many pounds he's lost during its development, those shields are ass. I wanted my pink Knuckles.

  12. (tweet) This is amazing. Show them who's boss.

      Rome wasn't built in a day... but it sure burned to the ground in a week.

       

      And now, so will Deactivision.

  13. Maybe the final Smash character will be Blinx

  14. Sega put out a Virtua Fighter 5 survey where you can complain about netcode specifically, that's neat

  15. (tweet) Holy heck

  16. I just hope Sonic Rangers is creative, bold and decent

    That's all I ask for

      Sega: "Best we can do is Not-Metal Gear Sold V with half the budget, random YouTubers replacing RCS and friends, dead memes making up half the script, and terrible optimization for anything that isn't a PS5."

      Spoiler

      "Also, Tails turns traitor, joins with Eggman - who is also his father now, because we are out of ideas and Persona makes us more money  - and conquers the multiverse. However, the final boss fight between Sonic and Tails is being left for Sonic Prime because fuck you, we are now owned by Netflix."

       

  17. People who think porting Unleashed is this no-brainer move for Sega just seem stuck in a Sonic bubble, honestly.

    I get that fans like it and think it's underappreciated, but porting it isn't this sure-fire great business move they think it is.

    1. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      I get that rationale for Unleashed, even if I still want it ported.

      don't get that rationale whatsoever for Generations, that's one of the biggest no-brainer games to port to newer systems, especially for the 30th anniversary IMO.

    2. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      Most people aren't thinking rationally or logically when they say they want it ported. 

      The bottom line is; it's the only game from Boost era that is not currently available on Modern hardware and gatekept on 360/PS3. Additionally, it's also the last game to feature a lot of things that would be exercised in Colors onwards. 

       

      So while I agree that porting it is a risky business move, I'd prefer taking that risk than just it languishing forever. 

    3. Penny

      Penny

      you can play unleashed and generations on xbox via backwards compatibility

    4. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Man, I don't even care at this point. Once they were willing to port LW the argument for "sure-fire great business move" went out the bloody window for me personally.

      It's a game in one of your most successful franchises that could 1, benefit greatly from it and, 2, is what your base has been asking about for years. Sometimes pr alone is enough of a reason to invest in something and I personally believe Unleashed covers that at the very least. Add in how they're putting in all this extra work for Colors and like... just fucking put a playable version of the game up on Steam for fucks sakes and let the army of fanbase modders handle the rest. It doesn't even have to have this big promotional push or anything. Just throw us a stupid bone so we can shut up about it.

      I know I sound desperate here and that's because I fucking am. I'm in a timeline where both LW and Colors are on PC yet Unleashed, the one boost game that arguably needed to be, isn't. Honestly, I'm rather livid lol.

    5. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      It, and Lost World perhaps, need the weight of the better recieved Colors and Generations in a collection if it had any hope of efficiently selling copies on consoles. And yet, they opt to only outsource a remake for only one game.

      But certainly better it as a stand-alone rerelease than 06 heaven forbid. Not even the weight of attaching the Adventures to it would do anything to downplay what an easy target it would be, especially if Shadow and Heroes are there too; they would likely draw more scorn to it than if 06 wasn't there. 

       

      But I don't see the problem if it gets a stand alone Steam release.

    6. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      I know SLW kinda puts a wrench in the argument but that port always seemed like a "the Wii U version tanked so hard, we gotta try to make money out of this somehow" desperation move to me.

    7. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      @Penny True, but let's assume that not everyone has a Series X. 

    8. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      @Thigolf If that's the case, wouldn't Unleashed be a logical thing to move considering it sold over 2M units. 

    9. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      I mean, why would Capcom ever bother rereleasing the poorly received later installments of MMX when they know well a lot more people will only buy the first legacy collection that has the good half of it? It's may not be the bext business move, but it's good they gave a legal option to replay the whole MMX series on modern systems at all. What's Sonic's excuse on anywhere outside of Xbox?

       

      @Kuzu

      Do those numbers not count the copies sold of the better reviewed Wii downgrade?

    10. pppp

      pppp

      @Penny  What if I want to play it in 60fps? Yeah exactly.

    11. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      @Kuzu That's just it, though: Unleashed is poorly received, yet it sold well. I can totally see Sega just wanting to bury it. Heck, they delisted it for a while. Nowadays, they don't go that far, but don't want to actively remind people "Hey, we put out the game with the dumb werehog".

      Lost World wasn't received much better, but it doesn't have the notorious aspect like Unleashed did with the Werehog and... it was also the poorest selling Sonic game at the time. I can see them, in that specific case, them just wanting to recoup costs any way they could. 

      One probably made back the costs well enough and there's nothing to gain from drawing further attention to it and its bad reception, one sold so badly that they're trying to squeeze any cent out of it that they can, regardless of reception. I think that's the logic behind it.

    12. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      Man, I'm so tired of mainstream media dictating what the series does when half of the time when most of them don't even really care about the series` core appeal. 

      Like I get it, public opinion is important but I've always been of the impression that most media really don't "get" Sonic and its having an adverse effect on what many people actually like about the series in an attempting at pleasing the masses. 

    13. pppp

      pppp

      @Kuzu That's exactly what it is. Focus on the franchise's core appeal to cater to people that actually will buy the damn games. Why are we still trying to turn non fans in to fans?

    14. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      Because a bigger audience means more money. 

      The problem is that they completely abandon old fans with their shenanigans and fail to gather new fans because of the poor/mediocre quality of their games, but that's not a problem of the core concept, it's just Sonic Team sucking.

    15. Ferno

      Ferno

      These are more reasons I don't get those that like Colors more getting annoyed with the fanbase's praise of Unleashed. It's like, hey the almighty mainstream liked Colors more anyway and it's the one getting a port now, you already won twice over, let the Unleashed fans have their little twitter posts filled with Unleashed screenshots that's apparently cliche now to alot of people

    16. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      In this particular instance, I don't see how porting Unleashed is somehow a bigger risk than porting Lost World. At which, I don't give a fuck. Just do it already. 

       

      But yea, Sonic Team's lack of quality control is the biggest culprit here and it pretty much shoots them in the foot no matter what they do. At least before, when the games sucked, there was stuff about them to like. 

      Now, they basically sucked all of that out, but nothing actually improved like everyone thought it would. So now we're left with these lifeless husks of games that are trying desperately to be something they aren't. 

       

      @Ferno Its kind of a perpetual thing sadly. Because people who love Unleashed tend to hate Colors and will bash it to praise Unleashed, which then in turn prompts people who like Colors to bash Unleashed. 

       

      This wouldn't be a fucking issue at all if Sega just went and released both games so that BOTH parties are happy, but that makes too much sense for them. 

  18. It's been seven years since it's been announced, but in little over a day, we'll finally get to play the Great Ace Attorney in the west.

    Almost there, guys.

  20. Why isn't the dumb Boost music distortion effect a toggle

    Why won't they let me listen to the music they composed

    1. Indigo Rush

      You'll listen to your high pass filter and you'll like it

      Supah Berry

      You like how they give GH and SS in Gens unique variations for boosting... and never did anything like that afterwards?

       

      Me personally, boosting should just add an extra drumbeat on to the unfiltered music, like the yoshi bongos in SMW or when you're frontrunning in Mario Kart

    3. charmsb

      charmsb

      Yeah the boost filter stinks. If you're playing Gens on PC, there's a mod for that.

    I dunno, it just doesn't look appealing to me anymore.

    1. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      The western logo is definitely a product of its time and I've wanted it replaced for years lol

    2. Strickerx5

      idk...

      Spoiler

      1200px-International_Pok%C3%A9mon_logo.s

      Call it nostalgia but this is still probably one of my most favorite logos out there. Seeing it just instantly takes me back to watching the show after school and obsessing over the cards. Also glad it hasn't been scrubbed/ modernized tbh.

    3. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      I personally wouldn't mind something that's a bit closer to the typefaces that the JP logos usually use. Doesn't really need to be the boring minimalist, free font bullshit everyone's doing these days

      PokC3A9mon_Ultra_Sun_logo_JP.png

      Though ironically, the JP logo for SwSh does follow the western logo's lead which is kind of funny

      PokC3A9mon_Sword_logo_JP.png

      I think it depends on the context used too. It's usually not a big deal on game packages but stuff like movie posters something about it feels slapped on. It's a similar problem I have with Sonic's current brand logo.

      I dunno, just looking at the japanese ones, I wish they'd do more with the english ones.

      Like, at least change up the colors for the logo? The same blue/yellow clashing against different colors just...looks garish to me, honestly.

  23. There's part Splinter Cell in Ubisoft's new Tom Clancy game
