    SumoRex reacted to Thrippa in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed...!   
    I hadn't intended to start console wars (and please don't restart them), but that's the point - I CAN'T skip the challenge for some reason. I've lost (of course) on Easy 5 times in a row, with no ability to skip. I switched characters, and lost another 5 times, and switched characters again, and after 15 fails in a row, on 3 different characters, the only options are still 'Retry' and 'Quit'. I have enough stars to go through the gate, but the game will not let me pass. The game has let me skip other levels by failing a whole lot fewer times. I think it's sussed out that Shadow's my favorite character, so it's being deliberately provoking.

    And no, I'm not giving up on this version to buy another. By and large I like it, I'm just no good at it. But I'd rather fail on my own merits or lack thereof than because the game is cheating!

    ETA: Just because the internet is sometimes a bit unclear on tone - this is not an angry complaint. It's partly annoyance at Nintendo, but partly amused because of all the bits to be blocked of from this is one of the few I'd really care about. If the game blocks off NiGHTS as well, then I'll know it's a conspiracy.


    FETA: And just now, it let me skip after failing the challenge 3 more times. I though it was three consecutive fails, not fail on three consecutive days!

    There's a really interesting obscure, kinda funny reason for Sonic to be driving a six wheeled open wheel car, but for some reason danica patrick.

    It has six wheels but in the wrong place... Someone wasn't paying attention.

    Just for the record we have a model we built of a "Virtual On" character, but we were (absolutely) unable to use it due ownership issues. (And trust me, I'm a MASSIVE fan of that game. I tried. ...My GOD I tried!)
    Unfortunately, there are many, many criteria that have to be satisfied, and you really don't want to know how difficult it can be to get the permission of all the IP holders to use their characters in our game. Its amazing that we are blessed with so many really.

    Plus, with the All_Stars title, we need to keep some back for future games and/or possible DLC. It's all about rotating characters. Some go, some old ones come back, and some new ones appear. That's the way it works.
    The trouble with getting EVERYTHING you could ever want is that there is nothing left to look forward to!

    The model had a BIG makeover
    She has a completely new face/head. And this time I think she's *much* prettier, and way less "jarring".


    Why though? What is it that annoys you so much? I'm interested to hear. (Honestly)
    Try to be constructive in your critisism, rather than emotive and it will be much easier to reply to.

    It's not quite as simple as that. (In an ideal world it would be)
    From what I can gather, the problem is that (especially on some of the older titles) the value of IPs weren't quite as recognised as they are these days. And the contracts weren't exactly clear on who the owner actually was. It's possible some of the IP ownership could be legally contested if it was used without sorting out legally. And who has the time or inclination when there are IPs which aren't contested. It's all about value for money. There is one IP which we tried to use, but the owner wanted to charge a large amount for use of these, otherwise, long dead characters. So again, it's just better for everyone to go with (perhaps) the safer less contested, or costly choice.

    The game feels very fast, sometimes almost too fast, though not really. Seriously it has a great feeling of speed and the drifts work well as well though I will admit air drifting is something I am really still getting used to and I haven't really even gotten into the tricks yet. I am playing at a very low level right now as I am just taking it in and enjoying it.

    It is a remix of the Space Harrier theme and a damn good one at that. I also noticed when I really paid attention that there is a Genesis and Gamegear in there as well. Also an Outrun arcade machine and the chuchus. I get the feeling I could play this level 10 times and keep finding new things in it.

    Appreciated. We really want players to discover some content by themselves. I know it will be hard to resist, but try

    I really think the course design and handling is a big step up, plus I'm quite proud of the vehicles, transforms and weapon systems. I say this all the time but we've made a real gamers game I think, the more you play it (and get good with the stunts!) the more you'll see it.

    Right, I need sleep! I'll call it a night!

    Ha, they based Pudding's car off of her bike in Space Channel 5 Part 2! That's pretty clever if you ask me.

    And man do those Race of Ages screenshots look nice!

    From a gameplay perspective I am mixed. I like the transforming aspect of it but I did prefer the more varied land vehicles of the first game like Ryo's motorcycle. On the other hand you guys REALLY outdid yourselves on the level design. Some of these course designs are absolutely awesome. I love being literally shot up the steps of the shrine in the Shinobi stage. I have to say as a sequel to a game I really loved, it is absolutely a worthy followup. Sumo really knows how to make great racers and this is no exception. If I sound negative in any way it is just the absolute Sega fanboy in me that is sad to not be able to fly around the docks of Yokosuka or ramsack the Fantasy Zone. With a company as old and versitile as Sega, you are never going to hit everything everbody wants and taking that into consideration, I get the game a huge two thumbs up.

    Don't worry guys, I won't spoil the last character but honestly I doubt I will get it before launch day anyways. Like I said the game is much harder than the first when it comes to unlocks.

    I know this may fall on death ears but.

    Please don't spoil the last character unlock. At least not until launch day. Because it's amazing, and I just think as many people as possible should have the same feeling I did when I saw [insert correct description here] in action for the first time.

    So Opa-Opa is really a no show? If not, well that sucks, but I could understand. He was just my favorite to use in the first game haha. Here's to hoping he shows up in a stage somewhere at least~

    Don't worry. I doubt I will get much more unlocked anytime soon as I am not really that great at the game yet and you guys didn't make the unlocks as easy this time around. Last time you could grind to get them but this time is going to take some real skill.

    Thanks. Yeah I see he thinks I put a negative spin on it. Its cool. My main gripe is just with some of the character choices. I found MeeMee and Pudding to be bad choices when there are so many other Sega franchises to pick from but I am having a blast playing the game. The first one was a favorite of mine and I owned it on at least four different systems so..........

    But if anybody has any questions let me know. I can take a few more pictures if there is anything people really want to see.

    Awwww, no fair he got a copy before I did!

    I'll say this, he's got quite a negative spin on quite a few things. Wait till you see it in the flesh. He's also got some hours to put in to get the elusive end unlock. He better start playing on hard

    So Opa Opa, Alex Kidd and Ryo are no shows. I hoped at least one would make it in, I assumed Alex Kidd since he was in the last two games. Still, given this game has Shinobi, Gilius, Vyse and NiGHTS I think it is a fair trade. I think people will just have to get used to the fact that the All-Stars series doesn't so much build on the roster as they mix it up each game. To be fair, Transformed is kicking ass when it comes to tracks, and now Opa Opa, Ryo and Alex Kidd are what make the first game special.
