  1. I personally wouldn't be surprised if they were actually discouraged/not allowed to create new IPs or experiment anymore, even if the team does have ideas for such. Back when SEGA was still in the console business, they needed an appealing library of games to attract the biggest audience possible to sell their hardware, so I would assume SEGA was a lot more compliant to give a green light if the team had an idea, or actually ordered/commissioned them to work on other titles besides Sonic, like it was the case with the original Phantasy Star Online if I remember well. Now with no hardware to sell, the logical thing is to only focus on the franchises making the most money, forget about all other franchises that were not financially successful (save for the occasional, barebone ports) and not allow expensive/risky experimentation anymore.
  2. Remember when Sonic Team made other original games besides Sonic so they didn't have to force every idea they had into Sonic games? The good old days..

      *brandishes killjoy stick* Iizuka wasn't involved with Unleashed though. Most he got was special thanks for level design. *puts away killjoy stick*

  4. How I see the current state of Sonic:
    Ken Pontac (and Warren Graff) providing craptastic stories and character portrayals to match Iizuka's tired, uninspired and shallow gameplay. A match made in...well, definitely not in heaven.

      I read Ken Penders and Warren Graff.

      I used to be a respectable franchise, then I took an Iizuka to the knee.

  5. Tell that to the Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter movie adaptations that made bucketloads of money.
  6. I think that sentence alone sums up my entire problem with a Sonic movie. It's not gonna be made for the actual fans, and to make a movie out of the franchise/character, it's gonna have to be skewed/altered so much, the question arises: what was the point of using the franchise/character to begin with if it'll have barely anything to do with it?

    Should Sonic Be Given The Ability To Swim?

    I agree. As every good character, Sonic needs his strenghts, but also weaknesses to balance it out, otherwise he's just a boring character who has a solution for every situation. He's already WAY too overpowered with the boost and now the wisps which are here to stay (ugh..). No need to make him even more of a swiss army knife of a character than he already is.

    What music are you currently listening to?

    One can never go wrong with Zebrahead.
  11. Well no if you're fine with bland design.
  12. Well to be frank, they haven't made a game I liked since they opted using a side mouth. And it definitely makes it hard to like a story based game where everytime the character opens their mouth, you cringe.
  13. Watching any character with a side mouth talk in a cutscene is alone to hate that game for me. It's the most stupid looking thing I can imagine. For certain occasions it's fine, like when a character is grinning, but when talking..that's actaully horrible to watch. The Sonic Adventure 1 mouth movement is less disturbing. Anyway, one other thing I would definitely change is Sonic shoes. With Sonic Adventure 2 introducing those awesome Soap shoes, I think they should have kept that as his standard shoes, as part of the continued evolution of his design. Or at the very least give his standard shoes a new sole design. Having all this high tech avaiable and yet using that super bland and uncreative, uninteresting design is just embarassing if you ask me. After having these, going back to that primitive crap..have a little creativity for gods sake, SEGA. You could say "well, no need to overdesign things". To that, I say "Well, we don't need to see every strand on their gloves, yet we have that...".
  14. Here's one: get rid of those damn side-mouths on characters, they are just plain ugly on everything that isn't just a static picture.
