  1. I do understand that. I guess I don't see a need to remaster it either as it's a gorgeous game that isn't really hurting to be significantly changed (medal hunting aside) and my argument is more about why Colors needs it more. I can see why fans want a collection, though. I can get behind that.
  2. It's on PSNow? So it's technically available on relevant hardware, then. It may not be ideal, but my point stands: Sonic Colors does not have this, even. And again, I want to reiterate that it's availability is only half the equation; it's also one of the 'bad' ones, and SEGA is not so dumb that it would put in the R&D into repackaging a game that they know is not going to review well. Sonic Colors was reviewed well, Sonic Colors isn't available on modern hardware, it's been ten years, SEGA needs a safe bet for their efforts. It's time for an upgraded port.
  3. Sonic Colors actually makes a load of sense for a remaster. It was a very critically acclaimed game when it released (people talked about how much it broke the 'Sonic Cycle' and whatnot) and holds up rather well, but also desperately needs that graphical boost in the 2020's. It's ten years old, and is not available on anything other than the Wii and DS. I've heard people asking for Unleashed to get ported, but I don't think folks really have considered how much it was thrashed and trashed on release, so no clue why you'd think SEGA would mess with that. Additionally, I was able to download it on my fiancee's Xbox One for $20 and play through it (until I couldn't stand it anymore) so it's not like it's unavailable to consumers on relevant hardware. Colors needs some serious polish in a few areas, but it's art direction is gorgeous, the good faith it restored in the franchise is undeniable and it can only benefit from being brought back into focus, especially after Forces unceremoniously wet the bed and became the latest "bad Sonic game" of the generation. The modern branch of the series needs a pick me up.

      There's a Live and Learn and Seaside Hill in this style too. Overall a really good album, came out about 2018/2019 I believe.

      I feel like there was a crowd singing along to this.

  6. How would a "randomizer" mod work for any of the Classic Sonic games (Sonic 1, 2, 3&K, Mania)? My first thought is item boxes and maybe which badniks appear in each Zone, but otherwise I can't think of much. 

    1. Wraith


      Random stage/act order, maybe.

    2. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      Randomise which zone you go to next for maximum carnage.


      Extra hard mode: Odds are weighted towards Green Hill


    3. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      This is kinda sorta randomizing-


    4. Diogenes


      random level order plus random character per level would make the most sense, i think. you could do monitors but in most cases i don't think it'd make much difference, randomized badniks might be hard to make work due to some needing certain environments to work properly.

    5. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I've said before that I'd have really liked to have seen a randomiser element in Mania's Encore Mode. Ideally it would have randomised all of the level order (but still start in AIZ and end in TMZ), and that could be accomplished by having the Ruby warp the characters at the end of each act (like it does between PGZ2 and SSZ1). Within the levels, certain Badniks could have been added to a limited randomiser pool with enough forethought put into which ones are interchangeable and what terrain limits were in place. The overall level layouts couldn't be changed, obviously.

    6. AWild No.1 washed up gamer

      How's your part of the world coming along with vaccines? Think you can fight to give your appointment a higher priority so you can schedule it sooner if it isn't coming up soon already?

      Sorry to hear that, hopefully you can recover/get a vaccine quickly.

      Update: this is day 3 of feeling sick, and it's all been a low-grade fever, chills, aches and a sore throat with a cough. Not fun. I'm hoping it doesn't get much worse than this.

    14. Jango


      Can you still smell or taste?

    15. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      I hope its not too much trouble distancing yourself from your family if you enjoy hanging out with them often. Think you can keep yourself busy (as busy as your health'll let you at least) and stay in touch with your folks till you get your vaccine?

    16. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      I'm already living apart from my fiancee right now so I've got that covered. My family lives in a different state so they're safe from me by default. Doctors say to not take the vaccine while infected. By the time I get over it, I'll already be getting ready for the Wedding. 

      The worst right now is the sore throat, it's like... worse than strep. I can hardly swallow water without being in pain 

    17. Jango


      Dang, that sucks. Are you taking any kind of medicine for the fever or throat? I only took one for fever (because my doctor said it'd be OK) eventhough I didn't had any. I did took Vitamins C and D capsules because I'm low on them anyways, and since they're known for pumping up your imune system, it was a good precaution. 

  8. Now for a game of is it early COVID symptoms or seasonal allergies? 😬

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Hopefully just the latter...

      Well, my sister caught the flu, but we all freaked out and thought she got COVID...

      We should have a scathing 5-page debate about this.

    5. Lord-Dreamerz


      A over 3 foot tall anthro hedgehog sure. I feel SonicTeam should really come up with a broad term for the Sonicy alien humanoid animal species they create as they are clearly different from the normal animals or the tiny animals too. I know fans like to use the term mobian, but i don't think SonicTeam uses it.

    6. AWild No.1 washed up gamer

      That may be true, but he's also a guy that loves adventure:


  10. As an addendum to my post, one specific thing I'd like to thread into the lore is the "four great civilizations" nugget dropped by Sonic Chronicles and have it tied into the reveal at the end of Sonic Riders ZG that the Babylonians were actually aliens. That'd be my scifi way to explain the coexistence of talking animals and humans. The ancient ruins in South Island that depict a race of bird people would be the backdrop for that, and that would be the "first" great civilization, of which Longclaw/Sophocles (since I like the idea of an owl being Sonic's surrogate parent for some dumb reason) is the last remaining descendant. Echidnas would be the fourth and final before Chaos wrecks everything and the emeralds are banished to the Special Stage for Gerald Robotnik to use his special machinery to retrieve one for his experiments. ......y'all got me headcanonizing my own Sonic universe how could you.
  11. Throw me in the camp with those who think Knuckles' digging abilities should be explored a bit more beyond what the Adventure games did. If Knuckles is going to ever be playable in a 3D action game again, I'd like to see him preserve momentum by diving into the ground and drilling across the surface as if he was swimming in a body of water (which is also something I'd like to see return from SA2). I think there's some potential to be had there, especially in conjunction with his usual climbing, punching and gliding abilities. If you've ever played Super Lucky's Tale, you'll know what I'm going for. Basically Lucky's burrow ability, but faster and effective on walls as well as the ground.
  12. I'll never not love Azoo's ideas

  13. When you say "reimagine/reboot" Sonic, I'm assuming this is meant to run the entire gamut from character designs to storyline of the main game series. To that, I'd say the most important thing is to recognize first that Sonic is much bigger than a stand-alone game franchise, and everything from the movie to the shows to the comics and maybe even the mobile phone games have equal potential to leave a strong first impression on newcomers. From a branding perspective, that's a lot of salivating potential for making money a franchise that transcends generations, but it's equally nightmarish to manage. To just "reboot" the games is one thing, to make a sweeping call that everything ever that stars Sonic doesn't count anymore is most likely going to fall on the deaf ears of the general public who'll say "who cares" and enrage the fans who've spent years of their lives building their understanding of the Sonic series. If we're going to "reboot" it all, get ready for some backlash and confusion. So, we want to reimagine Sonic. If that responsibility fell on my lap, I'd first and foremost establish a living lorebook/continuity bible that explains everything from how Sonic's universe functions to every character's favorite food. Sonic's world needs to be fleshed out so it can be a sturdy launching point for an endless number of stories to tell, as well as give a faithful canvas for fans to create their own stories and characters with. From there, I think it's important to make sure different media forms like the comics and TV shows be written and portrayed in a way that doesn't contradict the games, instead supplementing them to create a sort of expanded universe, if you will. The main thing is to determine if we want to redesign the cast, and to that I'd say not to, or rather not much. The current modern design which incorporates some of Classic Sonic's stature is a great equilibrium to work from. I'd just have it so certain games or other media have the opportunity to fill in more specific details such as fur and shoe texturing, similar to the Movie, just not as radical. The next major task is story, and I think the biggest thing is to take advantage of 30 years of hindsight to recreate the most loved story beats from the series across any continuity, as well as avoid recreating (or heavily modifying) the worst ones. I'm talking moments like Tails saving Sonic at the end of Sonic 2, Eggman brutally defeating Sonic in Archie #175, Sonic and Shadow's "faker?!" quips in SA2, the showdown against Metal in the OVA, Sonic and Knuckles squaring off in... Sonic & Knuckles, that sort of thing. It doesn't have to only come from the game series to find a second life in a rebooted series. Similarly, just because it was in the games, doesn't mean it needs to be revisited. I'd stay far away from incorporating the Black Arms into Shadow's backstory, for instance, and the Deadly Six need a serious retooling. Aside from that, rebooting the series from "square one" with a Sonic 1 or Sonic 2 remake isn't a bad start, but pretty soon we're going to need to be smart with adding more fan favorites into the mix. Eventually we'll need to get back up to par with having the primary cast and tertiary supporting characters on the palette so we can start painting new stories with them. This is possible with the aforementioned hindsight; it'll be much easier to reintroduce the old guard when we've already figured out their personalities and character arcs. Some game stories could even be "re-told" as comic book arcs or TV episodes; or for fun, we could take something like the Storybook series and literally make them into story books. All the character development without any of the half-baked Wii tech demos. Additionally, with the comics and shows picking up the slack, some characters could be introduced in that area and then be incorporated into a major game without having to make another introductory arc to explain everything about them. I'm actually sort of hoping SEGA is going to do this with the IDW comic, as it took off right after Sonic Forces and seems to consider the games prior to that as part of it's canon; and with Tangle and Whisper being playable in the mobile games, there's certainly an opportunity to be had here. From there, you could introduce all new characters or re-incorporate "lost" or "non-canon" characters like the Hooligans or the Freedom Fighters in new, re-imagined ways that would supplement the new series. And that's where I'd start. I didn't mention anything about game design because this just isn't the topic for that, though I definitely have my opinions there. For the most part, I think the series is just fine the way it is, but if afforded the opportunity, I'd vouch for everything I said above.
  14. How would y'all design a Sonic & Eggman game?

    1. Cuz


      ... Isn't a Sonic and Eggman game just like 99.9% of most Sonic games? 

      Or is this some buddy cop handcuffed together situation?

    2. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      Like, where both are the main playable characters

    3. Kuzu


      Depends on the type of game it is; we're talking a platformer or another genre?

    4. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I'd take these two awesome characters with tons of history put them in a banal spin-off with only mini games and there's no need for a plot either. I'm thinking something like a cross between Mario & Sonic Olympics and Crash Purple/Spyro Orange. It would be amazing.

    5. Teoskaven


      A solo Eggman dungeon builder/tower defense is kind of a neat idea tbh.

    6. Kuzu


      @Blue Blood Its cheap and affordable and people will buy it anyway. Sounds like a Sega move. 

    7. Dejimon11


      My idea Eggman game would basically be the Mis-Adventures of Tron Bonne 

    8. Strong Dosh

      Strong Dosh

      I'd take a similar approach to sa2 with choosing good or evil and tell each characters story from their own perspective. You'd probably need some outside force like the black arms or gun to have a common enemy for both of them to take on but still have a handful of sonic vs eggman fights when they inevitably clash.

      Sonic would play how you'd expect him to and eggman would be in his egg walker I'd just make it more mobile. Immediately I imagine the chicken legs on his mech could give him kazooie moves like a high jump, faster run speed, and straightening so he could go over obstacles like spikes, quicksand, shallow water, etc etc unharmed. I love the idea of eggman gunning down huge hordes of enemies and he could have a close range move where he grabs the enemy himself and punches them  since eggman himself is a pretty strong guy. That'd be POWERFUL.

      Honestly I've been thirsting for another playable eggman appearance again real bad.

      Just make Mean bean machine 2.

    10. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      Final boss against a kaiju as Death Egg Robot firing out Super Sonic like a cannon is sort of what I'm leading up to here 

    11. Diogenes


      i think the most obvious angle would be to give eggman some gadgets that put him on a similar level to sonic, though i'm not sure where exactly to go from there. maybe do something like the ring tether from chaotix, have them be forced to work together, give them some team-up moves that are  not exactly "friendly" cooperation.

    12. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      @Diogenes you just put this in my head: Sonic pushing Eggman around like Billy Hatcher and the giant egg

      ....So Sonic Twinsanity?

  15. Is Failinhearts still around? Haven't seen a Morning with a danganronpa video in a while 

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I hadn't noticed the lack of his trademark greetings, but yeah I don't think I've seen them in a while? He's been logged in and reacting to stuff, but hasn't posted anything in a month.


    2. Dejimon11


      He’s active on Twitter and discord 

    3. Emperor Robrainiac

      Emperor Robrainiac

      As someone who keeps in contact with him through the PM RP I can say he's still around. Just very busy with RL stuff.

    4. Teoskaven


      Pretty much, if you bother to check his content it's one of the first things that pop up.

    5. DanJ86


      I can echo what Emperor said. It's mostly school work keeping him busy.

    6. Failinhearts


      I'm still here every day! Just... yeah busy, busy, busy.

      And two, the status system has been very unreliable on my tablet. Made posting the morning greetings really tedious.

      I appreciate everyone's responses here, though! Glad I'm not forgotten, lol.
