    Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game

    Okay yeah you're right. While I don't like how this game has been marketed (it is getting better though), I shouldn't repeat myself every 5 minutes about it. I wouldn't say that SEGA has shown a lot off, though. We still don't know anything about the story or other modes.

    Actually more footage of the game than SEGA themselves have shown.

    Sonic Live Action Movie Thread (Read OP for topic rules)

    When I said that Sonic will basically be dead after this movie drops I meant that Sonic will be dead in terms of quality. The series will more than likely still be around after the movie of course, but there likely won't be anything good to come out of it, and if there is, it'll probably just be another blue moon situation. Sonic will likely become a franchise zombie for the most part like he has been (bar a few exceptions) since 2006. I really hope that won't be the case, but given the track record of this series I'd honestly be kind of surprised if this series becomes able to produce consistently good content in the foreseeable future. It's not that the series is bad of course, but it's so heavily mishandled. Similar to what @Scritch the Cat said, if 06 wasn't rushed, it could've been an amazing game, and if Rise of Lyric wasn't also rushed and forced to the Wii U, it could've also been a good game. There's nothing for me to look forward to this series anymore. After Forces I've basically given up on "Sonic Team", and seeing how this live-action movie will turn out, I've even practically given up on SEGA at this point. Yeah, SEGA isn't involved with the production of the movie, but they agreed to the whole thing. Even some of the few people at SEGA who still care about the series like Takashi Iizuka and Aaron Webber lack good direction for the Sonic series in my opinion. I hope we do get great Sonic games that aren't nostalgia fests or littered with gimmicks that'd bring down the game's quality again someday, I really do. I'll wait another 20 years to get great 3D Sonic games with a good narrative and no dumb 2D sections again if I have to, but until then... I can't stand seeing the Sonic series fail like this time and time again and it's why I feel like quitting.

    Sonic Live Action Movie Thread (Read OP for topic rules)

    This movie inspired me to look back on the worst Sonic games such as Shadow, 06, Rise of Lyric, and Forces, and how badly they damaged the series. It's more than bad enough that those three games ended up the way they did. And now, this series is basically going to be dead when this movie drops. I'm honestly considering quitting the series at this point. I still love Sonic as a character if not as a series, don't get me wrong, but the series just doesn't appeal to me anymore. It's become nothing more than a nostalgia pandering, asset/location/stage/idea re-using, broken physics infested if not glitch infested, characterization abusing, poorly designed, poorly written, poorly marketed, self-deprecating, meme-y, and overall just poorly executed and poorly managed series with way too many incarnations. How and why is it even possible for the same series to produce the greatest game in it's series in 25 years if not of all time, then a heavily disappointing 3D game and a crap-stain live-action movie? How long is this emotional rollercoaster going to go on? Is it even possible for this series to get back on good tracks again? Will the series ever revert to being at least decently executed, decently managed, and somewhat easy to get a grasp on? Or will it forever stay as a micromanaged, identity-less, complicated, boring, and unlikable pile of garbage?

    Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game

    Regarding Team Sonic Racing on Steam having Denuvo, just... *sigh*. Man, I don't want to have to be overly pessimistic about this series anymore, but even when we do get an actually good Sonic game, SEGA seems to always find some way to screw it up and ruin it. Sonic Mania. Considered the best Sonic game in 25 years, let alone of all time. Most of it's goodwill was wrecked by the Denuvo DRM and the remaining of it was finished off by Forces and the Sonic movie. Granted they did eventually remove Denuvo from Mania and that might help it's sales on Steam, but the damage has pretty much been done already. Speaking of Sonic Mania having it's DRM removed, I don't believe that Team Sonic Racing on Steam having Denuvo is just SEGA of Europe being incompetent with their PC ports again. No, they're doing this out of masochism at this point. They know that adding Denuvo to their games is absolutely unnecessary and unwanted, otherwise they wouldn't have removed it from Yakuza games or Sonic Mania, but they're adding DRM anyway just so they can hurt the Sonic series and the company as a whole they're working for. Chances are they only removed it from Mania and Yakuza because of the massive backlash they got the first time they've implemented Denuvo and now that the backlash of that is over they think they can get away with it now. We won't have it. Tell SEGA of Europe that you will not buy anymore SEGA titles on Steam until they stop shoehorning Denuvo into them. We got them to remove Denuvo from the Yakuza games and Sonic Mania. We can keep forcing them to remove Denuvo from their future PC releases, including Team Sonic Racing.

    Team Sonic Racing on Steam will include Denuvo. As if this game didn't have enough problems.

      My thoughts exactly, guys.

      Man, I wish we could do something about the Sonic series having to go through this crap. It's almost as if SEGA is outright refusing to learn and fix what they have done. I feel like they'll keep messing up Sonic time and time again and we as fans HAVE to do something.

      one less reason for me to get the game then

    Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game

    Anyways, regarding the gacha thing, I really hope they don't add a paid method to unlock random car parts. That would be as bad as if not even worse than the time SEGA/Sonic Team initially decided to charge $1.99 for Super Sonic in Sonic Forces after a month. I'm pretty sure that Aaron Webber said in the latest Sonic Official livestream that the parts won't be locked behind a paywall, so there's that. Sadly, this is the same company that allowed Shadow the Hedgehog, Sonic 06 and Sonic Boom ending up the way it did, Sonic 4, Sonic Lost World having life pack microtransactions, Super Sonic for Sonic Forces having to be bought with real money a month after it came out (even if they decided to make it free forever, the fact they allowed it in the first place still counts), and the live-action Sonic movie to happen, so I wouldn't even be surprised if there are indeed microtransactions in Team Sonic Racing. I really wish I could give this game a chance, but there's just so little content and so much re-used stuff from past games, and now possibly microtransactions...

    Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game

    I was really hoping that the location Cubot was at in Team Sonic Racing wasn't yet another ripped track from the previous Sonic racing games, but after examining Cubot's background in this screenshot and Dark Arsenal from Sonic and SEGA All Stars Racing, it's safe to say they are bringing back Final Fortress, unfortunately. Guess this means that literally almost half of Team Sonic Racing's entire track roster will be ripped tracks from previous games with little to no changes whatsoever. Disappointed, but not surprised.

    Sonic Live Action Movie Thread (Read OP for topic rules)

    *sigh*. Well, it looks like doomsday has arrived, and seeing that the trailer is apparently going to be released to the public soon (Finally, right?), it's only going to get worse from here on out. I won't lie, I find it a bit funny at how hilariously bad this movie is going to be, but in the long term it just saddens me, especially being a Sonic fan that wants nothing more than for SEGA to do good with their own mascot franchise. I just hope that going forward, if the next big Sonic product (be it a game or movie or cartoon) doesn't look promising, we as fans/consumers won't waste our time and money on it. That's the only way we can fight back (in a civil and peaceful way of course) against SEGA/Sonic Team ruining the Sonic series, and it's the only way we'll get anything good out of the series that isn't nostalgia pandering/re-using content again.

    Team Sonic Racing - Team Up Trailer

    *sigh*. Unfortunately, this is probably hinting at the Phantom Ruby being brought back, meaning it's basically confirmed that Dodonpa is Classic Eggman. I knew it. The Sonic series is already more screwed than it has ever been and the fact that they keep connecting Mania with Modern Sonic games just so they can shoehorn the Classic versions of the characters into Modern games just makes me wish the series collapsed sometimes. There's a chance that I'm looking too much into this, but the Sonic series basically defines itself entirely by nostalgia at this point, and the Sonic social media is known for giving clues to stuff, so I wouldn't be surprised if the Phantom Ruby and Classic Eggman are in this game. Why do I even bother.

    Please don't bring that evil upon us. This movie is already a train wreck as it is.

    Baby Sonic. Baby. Sonic. Is this real? Was the guy who posted that rumor on Reddit on to something? I can't even imagine what a baby version of the blue mutant will look like.

    Sonic Live Action Movie Thread (Read OP for topic rules)

    Regarding the Comicbook.com article, their source was someone who apparently got even more information from DreamcastGuy on what the movie trailer is about. https://www.resetera.com/threads/rumor-sonic-movie-trailer-description.104492/ Fun fact: The person who posted this also said on this forum that SEGA was going to pull the plug on Sonic Boom following the end of Sonic Boom season 2. Sadly, he was right.

      My precise thoughts on the entire film at this point.

      Fake or not, I'd be hard pressed to think the real deal trailer would do anything more significant than that.
