      My bet is that most of the team have been working on their own projects since. That's kind of been the running curse of the series as of the last decade+. We get super talented devs in for one project and then they often move on to bigger and better things. I doubt it's not like Sega doesn't want to make a second one, but the bigger question is if the team is going to be there for it. If not, I think SoA is smart enough to know that the project would already be an uphill battle that they're likely to lose. Not to mention damage their precious classic image on top of that.

      Now, Dimps making a Sonic Rush 3 for Switch while ST makes the next mainline game for next gen... that's a possible reality I'd like to see.

      Aside from the fact it's been a year since Mania last got content, I have noticed SEGA have been really shy on making sequels for Sonic if it wasn't a crossover game. 

  2. Eight years ago today Sonic CD (Taxman remaster) was released on android, PS3 & X360 etc.

    Still the best version thanks to the 16:9 widescreen, Sonic 2/3 optional spindash, improved physics & playable Tails.

    About time we got a new remaster, this time with playable Knuckles!

  3. "Xbox Series X" is a rubbish name.  

    PS5 has already won the next-gen war ;)

  4. Received my copy of this today 😀


  5. "We're now on one of the best timelines"


  6. We're getting a new animated short tomorrow!

      Cool. I don't recognise the area this time for a change.

      EDIT: Could be Chao Garden.

    2. Ferno


      SA3 confirmed

    3. Jango


      Mania 2 or die

    4. Ferno


      gimme something saturn 3D esque at the very least tbh unless it's a mania sequel with all new zones + Amy 

    5. Ellipsis-Ultima


      I wonder if it's another one of those paper shorts.

      Hoping it's a modern Sonic short tbh

  7. In December eight years ago we got this announcement:

    Good times! ...sort of

    1. Tarnish


      That Tails dyed beard is still cringeworthy for me.

    2. Ferno


      Forgot about that dude

      Also I'm still mad we never got an episode 3 with Knuckles

  8. I purchased the PC version of Sonic 3D Blast (got it for £2 on AmazonUK).

    It's the first time I've played the PC version (only played the Saturn version via crappy emulation). Plays pretty well. It actually works fine on Window 10. The soundtrack (same as the Saturn version) has some really nice pieces, although I prefer the Genesis soundtrack overall. The better graphics also have some nice weather effects added to them; like the rain in Rusty Ruin.

    The special stages which are different to both the Genesis & Saturn version are kinda meh. I mean they're easy enough with fuck-loads of rings to collect (the seventh special stage is the only particularly tricky one) and they are probably more interesting than the Genesis ones; but the bomb placement is pretty unfair. A lot of the time you'll run straight into a bomb without enough reaction time to avoid it, and the special stages are too generic to remember the bomb placements particularly well. A lot of the time it's more beneficial just to smash into the bombs to collect the rings around them and the controls are a little slippery, but it's not a big deal as there are plenty of rings to collect to make up for hitting several bombs.

    I'd like to be able to play the Saturn version one day.

  9. Decided to play Sonic Forces again. I have no idea why...

  10. Was hoping Tee would do remixes from other games, but wasn't expecting Sonic 4

  11. What if the next Sonic game is a brand new 2d game but made by Sonic Team?

    1. Perkilator


      Knowing their current 2D section fetish, I wouldn't be surprised.

    2. Jango


      Don't even play with this 

    3. Supah Berry

      Remembering when we thought is was Dimps fault for Sonic 4?

    4. Zaysho


      Wasn't that Sonic Forces

    5. Diogenes


      i trust sonic team with 2d sonic even less than i trust them with 3d sonic

    6. TCB


      the cynic in me wants to see that happen

    7. Jango
    8. Solister


      Guess would become something like Rush/Colors DS. Don't think would be that bad but also think no one really would pay such attention. As mentioned, not that Colors/Generations/Forces aren't this.

      + I once even wrote a similar topic about this, but taking 2.5D in the matter.

      ++ 2D doesn't mean Classic, then things would be a different thing (Which I have no expectations on what could lead).

    9. Adamabba


      sonic runners 2

    10. Jango


      I... Actually would be 110% ok with runners 2

    11. Strickerx5


      i'd say it'd probably be my tipping point but with how most of the games within the last decade have basically already been 80% 2D... eh

      guess just put a few more nails in that coffin there

    12. Sean


      I've already played Sonic Colors on the Wii though

    13. Jango


      I love 2D, don't get me wrong. But we really should get a full 3D Sonic game. Let Taxman and co. handle the 2D games FFS

  12. Erm...yummy

      Is Robotnik supposed to represent a particular frame? I can’t tell.

  13. Final episode of Life Is Strange 2 was released today.

    I've played the previous 4 episodes and it's no where near as good as the first series.

    1. Solister


      Life is Strange 2 didn't caught my attention since it was announced. Sorta good to see I'm not missing anything.

      I mean, the first Life is Strange was a bait for me, I loved the beginning (Mainly Episode 1) and it seems as further as I was going, it seems way more the writers were using drugs to connect things. Maybe it were consequences of my decisions, though I heard it always end the same. I never played Before the Storm though I think I should.

      Still then (And can even relate as a writer of similar genres), Life is Strange was no doubt a franchise with outrageous potential, but seems it fell into bad writing ruining everything of it.

  14. Meh...


    1. The Tenth Doctor

      The first iteration was so underwhelming (not to mention, the company still email me, even though I blocked them) that I give this a hard pass.

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I liked the first print, but it was missing loads of potential content and much of what was there was lifted from Wikipedia. It was a lazy, shoddy effort in many ways. The fact that it was a limited edition, but has now been re-printed with additional content really winds me up. The Forces and Mania should have been in a smaller book, or held off on for a few more years until there was more content to add. "Meh" is an understatement.

  15. Just watched "Beating Eggman" parts 1&2.

    1. TheOcelot


      Image result for sonic that's what friend are forWatched the next episode.

  16. Just watched ep10 of Sonic X "Satelite Swindle". Eggman loses the baseball game and then just leaves with both (blue and green) emeralds, but Eggman only had the blue emerald, he never got the green emerald from Tails.


  17. All of a sudden everyone is buying an Xbox1...

    Image result for has the world gone insane gif

      Gone insane like MS with its pricetags

    2. Menace2Society


      Except me.

      With Scarlet coming out next year, I just see no point. 

    3. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      I don't have any interest in getting a XBox still

      Everything I want is elsewhere, though I have nearly everything I wanted anyways

  18. Just watched episodes 7 (Party Hardly) ,8 (Satellite Swindle) & 9  (The Last Resort) of Sonic X.

    Lets see:

    Ep7: Cream is annoying!

    Ep8: Wonder if "The Dr Eggman Show" was kind of inspiration for "Egg TV" in Studiopolis?

    First appearance of Tornado X

    Sonic was frozen in space but didn't die....erm

    Ep9: Eggman screampark

    Amy took out Sarpenter all by herself and Sonic saved Amy and can now swim...apparently.

  19. Wonder if SEGA will ever rerelease any of the other 3D Sonic games (not that they're rated highly enough or sold well enough to warrant a new release). SA1, SA2 were rereleased on most platforms last-gen, SLW was ported to Steam (the Eu PSN release of Heroes & Jp PSN release of ShTH doesn't count).  

    1. Wraith


      most other franchises get rereleases in spite of reception

    2. JezMM


      I really am surprised that Colours still hasn't got one considering it's reputation, not that I'm PARTICULARLY bothered about getting one.

      I'd really like an HD port of Heroes and ShTH but their iffyness probably means they never will. I liked Shadow and would play it semi-often back in the day where it didn't require me to change which consoles I had plugged in.

    3. Solister


      I think a Heroes Steam port is the more likeable now. Rather than that, Maybe (But very Maybe) Unleashed and Colors for PC. I mean, Heroes I guess is the most "urgent", as Sonic '06 is being fan remade, Unleashed have Project Unleashed and Colors runs pretty well on any mediocre PC using Dolphin.

      I also say that I think we should get a new compilation of the likes of Mega/Gems Collection. Recently, I've seen many people interested on replaying Sonic R and Sonic the Fighters or even classic ones like S3&K but haven't many alternatives.

      Can't argue much about consoles as I own none.

    4. Menace2Society


      From what I heard, they lost the source code for the original boost gameplay engine they used for Unleashed, Colors, and Gens, which would totally explain why the former two still haven’t gotten PC releases and why Forces used Lost World’s engine. I would be shocked if they actually did get rereleased. 

      Shadow and 06 are obvious. Doesn’t matter how the big the demand for them is. They’re not gonna just rerelease two of their biggest blemishes on the franchise like that.

      Idk why they haven’t rereleased Heroes yet, though. I guess they just had no interest in rereleasing it.

    5. Tracker_TD


      The 'lost source code' thing is completely unsourced and stems from weird speculation because SEGA apparently lost the source code to... House of the Dead. 


      The real reason Forces was made on the LW engine was probably because it was more up-to-date in terms of development pipelines and the team were probably more familiar with it (particularly, Morio Kishimoto - who worked on LW but not Generations). 

  20. The Geek Critique's latest video: ShTH


  21. Happy Thanksgiving

      this is the most morbid thanksgiving greeting i have ever seen

  22. Green Hill zone will be in the next new Sonic game.

    1. Zaysho


      And it'll be this song playing from now on


  23. Just watched Episode 4 of Sonic X season 1 "Chaos Emerald Chaos". Eggman's badnik "Beacon" tossed Sonic around in the air like a rag doll and Chris got the first chaos emeraaaaald. 

    1. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Me and my nephew used to take the piss out of the scene where Chris was falling



    2. TheOcelot


      Yeah, he wasn't even waving his arms. Just falling head first.

    3. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      There's an entire thread that was essentially all about dunking on the animation in X. It's from 2011 so there are lots of broken images, but it might be worth looking at for some cheap lulz.
