  1. I would like to see Insomniac Games make a 3D Sonic game tbh

      My preferred pick is Retro Studios but I'd be into an Insomniac Sonic game.

    Silly Rowl, you should know by now that SEGA almost never pulls off any great opportunities for the Sonic series.

    Sonic Live Action Movie "Now entering Silent Green Hill"

    Where did Paramount say that they wanted to establish movie Sonic as a franchise? I'm just wondering because I haven't seen any evidence stating that.

    @Detective Kaito Yeah it really doesn't look good, especially the 3rd screenshot where the floor looks glitched since there's textures of lava on it but it's not completely lava.

    Looking at the 3rd picture, the lava touching the road just doesn't really look good in that angle. I don't know what it's called, but that kind of placing between the path and the lava just seems kinda off to me. Or maybe the lava itself doesn't look that good.

    Oh boy, more unfunny Sonic Mania memes! Because they totally haven't reminded us a million times that Mania exists.

      I'm not annoyed by Mania being everywhere (although it's true)… I like Mania, it's just that they only post memes, that's more annoying.

      It seems to be working for them, don't see why they should stop being fun.

      I don't say don't post memes, post other things too, meanwhile Sticks tries to save the situation by promoting IDW comics:

      In all seriousness, I would be okay with them posting memes (Mania or non-Mania) if they were to, y'know, actually fucking promote their content that isn't Mania such as the comics, the new toy-line, and their upcoming game (I know, they're going to give us more news at SXSW and onwards, but we've known about this game for a while. They should've showed MUCH more of the game then what they have shown thus far).

      @Indigo Rush Yes, I saw that comment.

      I'm glad that we're getting more info on TSR and although this sounds pretty far-fetched I hope that the Sonic social team getting expanded means they can better promote Sonic games and actually promote the comics and etc.

      I meant that they shouldn't promote a Sonic game like how they've promoted Team Sonic Racing thus far again, and that they should promote their other content, too.

    Well don’t look at me. I’m not blindly defending this game. In fact, I’m not even going to buy it because of SEGA’s meddling and low-budget forcing the game to have only 15 playable characters, re-used tracks, Wisps (Iizuka...), Zavok, 21 tracks based off 7 zones instead of 21 tracks with each track being unique, etc. I honestly feel bad for Sumo Digital. They’re trying to make a good Sonic game, but the villians at SEGA and Sonic Team are doing everything in their power to fuck this game over. But yeah, I couldn’t freaking agree more. I’m so tired of people blindly defending everything about Sonic. There are even people defending that cum-stain Sonic movie by saying “you haven’t seen Sonic’s full design” or “it’s not out yet”. People WILL get tired of the Sonic franchise producing nothing but mediocrity if not downright bad content like the live-action Sonic movie. It’s not a matter of if, but a matter of when. Heck, there are more and more people who are starting to give up on and boycott SEGA and Sonic Team (I know I have). Exactly.

    They could show how the customization works, talk about the other modes in the game, reveal more tracks (hopefully game play footage of said tracks and not just a music sample), elaborate clearly on what the story is about, show off some of the menu, maybe reveal some DLC, etc. There's still a lot we don't know about this game.

    Aaron also mentioned that we will see "other TSR game features at SXSW". Hopefully, we'll get a good amount of news for Team Sonic Racing other than just gameplay.

    Finally. Thank you, Aaron.

    Ugh. Can SEGA of America get a new marketing team please? 3 months until the game's release and they still only show concept art and not any actual game-play footage. This very well may be the worst marketed Sonic game.
  13. Who wants to bet that the next Mario Kart game will be called "Mario Kart X"?

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      That's oddly specific and I have no real opinions. 

      I guess it would be nice the series to go back to some more interesting titles (i.e Super Circuit, Double Dash) rather than the usual number or platform format, but it matters even less for Mario Kart than it does for must other series.

      Like Flat Zone X, taking the best of the best. I like the idea!

    3. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      Err... there has to be a Mario Kart 9 before we go to X. Unless it is F-Zero like that is.

      It could be Mario Kart NX though, referencing the Switch yet not using the Switch name.

      They're going straight to 10 because Mario Kart 7 ate 9.

      I know that there isn't a Mario Kart 9. I just wondered if Mario Kart were to take the same route as Windows/iPhone and go straight to 10 (X stands for 10).

      @do a barrel roll I think you missed the joke @TCB made? He’s joking that Mario Kart 9 won’t exist because Mario Kart 7 ate (8) it. Hence the jump to 10 with the next installment.

      I did think of Windows jumping to 10/X when I read this status interestingly enough. 

    9. TCB

      TCB

      no you explained the joooooooooke @Kiah

      @TCB 9 times out of 10 I don’t get the joke. This is a rare 1 out of 10 so let me have my moment lol. 

      @do a barrel roll I wasn’t sure hence me asking instead of saying with my first sentence in my comment there.

    12. tailsBOOM!
  14. Why does it seem that whenever something actually good happens to the Sonic franchise, SEGA milks it to the point where it becomes stale or downright bad?

    1. Tracker_TD

      Tracker_TD

      As Dio just said, this line of thinking could basically go for Modern Sonic's 20 year run too.

      The only thing I think really being milked with Mania is the name - Adventures had the name but was really it's own tale, Plus was just an excuse to do the heavily requested physical release so that's not much of an issue, and this new merchandise is just well, figures of the characters.

      I do wish they'd drop using the Mania name for everything but at the same time I can see why they have been since from a marketing perspective it works. Classic Sonic himself being milked though, again I'm really not seeing after only one new Classic styled game. I think this mostly boils down to folks annoyed Classic got the good stuff and Modern isn't, and while I sympathise, stopping Classic stuff won't suddenly make Modern good nor will it make Whitehead and co suddenly want to work on Modern when the head folks involved cut their teeth reverse-engineering and producing metric tons of fan content for the Classic games. Not to say that of *everyone* involved with Mania (I know Kieran Gates and Veer are partial to Modern), but you catch my drift. 

    2. Jack the Shadow

      Jack the Shadow

      I think Mania is done anyway. I predict there will be a new classic cartoon plus a game and they tie into each other. I kinda want more classic stuff because I like it and it has proven very popular.

    3. Kiah

      Because when they take an actual step forward they are incapable of taking another one before taking several steps back.

      Anyway I hope it's not SMA season 2 because I want it to be longer. At least 11 minute episodes.

      So true.

      It's not just Sega but a lot of companies do it for the money. If it is referencing Mania in particular, then at least drop the name unless it gets another game but keep classic going. I still think classic Sonic needs a bit of attention because good quality stuff still needs to be shown off but they also need some attention and more quality control on Modern that it isn't getting, comics aside.

      Also it is NOT JUST Sonic either that Sega has milked. They have milked Yakuza with 7 main games, 2 remakes (3 if Yakuza 1 & 2 HD counts), two historical versions, two PSP side games, a spinoff, a licensed version replacing Kiryu with Kenshiro and an upcoming rebooty/sequel type of thing but thankfully the quality is mostly consistent with Dead Souls being the weakest. That is since 2005 and those games have a lot of content, also doesn't help that 3, 4 and 5 are getting ported within one year with the upcoming game either.

      They used to milk Alex Kidd (arguably only two good games in that series), Shinobi (3 good games, 2 good games but not using the Shinobi name but plays like the original and 2 good for the hardware), Golden Axe, Super Monkey Ball and Out Run a lot, most of those aren't getting any more games and lucky to get the Sega Ages treatment that at least two of them have. Fantasy Zone and Phantasy Star were also milked quite a bit in their time but were more consistent. There are also yearly arcade games that they have milked but we don't know about those. We also don't talk about how Virtua Striker 2 got 5 versions of the same game in the arcade!

    7. Tracker_TD

      Tracker_TD

      I think at some point in there, we need to separate "milked" from "finding a fun gameplay formula and characters that people like and continuing to use it", such as with Yakuza.

      Is that what they're doing? I don't really see it myself or care for that matter. As long as they don't conceal hate into there fictional world, they can do whatever the hell they want for all I care. -_-;

    Sonic Live Action Movie "Now entering Silent Green Hill"

    Goodness gracious almighty I pray that they don't make sequels to this. It's more than bad enough that we got a live-action Sonic movie instead of a fully animated Sonic movie in the first place, and that SEGA's brain-dead executives are screwing over this franchise by making abyssal decisions such as green-lighting this monstrosity. Sonic's reputation has already hit rock bottom at this point. We really don't need it to go even lower.
