  1. It seems they want to reuse the enemies from the trilogy and use them to populate the tracks. I'm not sure if they will create a new character model unless it was already part of the original track. Like for example in Wumpa Clockwork I see a giant white chicken in the background and I do not remember one from the original track or from the trilogy.
  2. None of the gameplay I saw showed a competent player. People nowadays really have no clue how to play games right. Remember the Cuphead fiasco?
  3. Of course, it is wrong! This is a racing game! Not a freaking music album! So, therefore they have to show us more of the gameplay! Tracks, characters, modes, just something else besides music! Music is actually one of the last things people think of when they talk about a fun racer: priorities are the gameplay, controls, tracks, modes, characters, balance, vehicles, items and maybe then comes the music! Sega really focuses way too much on the most unimportant thing for this game! And the music isn't even that good. For my liking, they focus just way too much on the electric guitar.
  4. Again with the freaking music? Just release an album instead, if you put so much effort into the music and the marketing of it! Show us the freaking track, show us gameplay of the track! People could test Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled today and we have seen gameplay of four tracks! How the fridge can this game compete with either Crash or Mario? Crash has shown us more gameplay, more tracks, more animation, has more characters and tracks now that the CNK tracks are coming, more fanservice if the rumors are true about Spyro and other additional Crash characters, more people could test this game out unlike with TSR! I mean, come on Sega! You have shown us more stuff that surrounds the game rather than the game itself. That little animated short you have shown us a couple of weeks was nice and all but doesn't really reflect the quality of the game. Show us the freaking game already! What about the story and mission mode? Those things are still in the game, right? Why not show us a bit of these two modes?
  5. Yes. Please let it be a dungeon. I really need a traditional Shantae game right now! Please, please, please, Wayforward, let it be a Metroidvania-like game! Please, please, please!
  6. I hope this game goes more into the Metroidvania category, wasn't much of a fan of the more Mega Man-like level-design of Half-Genie-Hero.
  7. All of the facial expressions are great. Goddam, this game is so freaking good! This is a racing game that can really compete with Mario Kart!
  8. 33 is still very impressive. Good job Beenox! Also, maybe Spyro isn't the only new track. What, if we get a new cup with 4 new cups. Then the number will be 36. So we could now have with this number 9 cups.
  9. So with the 16 tracks from CTR + the 13 ones from CNK we got 29 tracks. Still 19 tracks lower than Mario Kart 8 Deluxe but 10 more than TSR. But 29 is a weird number I have to say. Maybe they make one new track for the game to make it 30 tracks in the end.
  10. Wait... all characters and tracks from Nitro Kart will be in this game? That would be really fantastic! Kinda weird to see characters like Crunch and N. Trance already use without giving them a proper introduction to new fans, but, eh, I can live with that.
  11. C'mon guys, Coco is actually one of the better handled female characters from the 90s. She is smart, a good mix of girly and tomboy, and competed. Yeah, she is a bit more silly nowadays and yes, she also has these silly death animations like Crash, but that doesn't really destroy her character in my eyes. It actually made her more layered.
  12. Yes, I would say. But it is kinda hard to say, what era we are now in. We first had the classic era, then we had the adventure era, then the modern era, than for a short time we had the Boom era and now we are in a new era, that doesn't really have an identity yet. It is kinda hard to point out, what era we are now. It seems like an era, that tries to be everything from the past at the same time: lighthearted and edgy, mature and childish, dark and colorful.
  13. I actually like her de-design, yeah it is more on the furry side, but it actually sticks out.
  14. Long-running series will/must always change in the future so that they can either fit today's taste or try to freshen up their concept. It happened with a lot of the 80s/90s shows. The characters from the TMNT franchise, for example, went from dark and mature, to overtop goofy, to dark and mature again, to a mix of mature and silly, to goofy wants again. But some changes stayed like turning Aril into a teenager or making the Shredder very terrifying. With Sonic it happened the same way. The tone of Sonic went from lighthearted and cartoony, to semi-mature, to very dark and edgy, to semi-mature again, and now we are in a current era, where everything seems to be more simple and light-hearted. Also, a lot of the characters have changed: Tails went from a tagalong to an independent inventor, to a bit of a whiny smart guy. Knuckles went from a mature rival of Sonic to a hothead, to an idiot and, is now once again the mature rival/friend of Sonic. Shadow went from a misunderstood anti-hero to badass edgy rival, to finally becoming some sort of a villain (I think). You can see also changes in the world of Sonic. Sonic's world went from colorful cartoony world to a semi-realistic world, to an alternative version of earth, and finally back to a more cartoony world. What other changes will the franchise have in the future? I personally think that when it comes to the tone of the series, we will go back to the more adventures series. It seems like adventures in an anime-like style are making a return: She-Ra, Voltron, Troll Hunters, and also some movies like Frozen 2 and the How to train your Dragon-Franchises set the way for more adventure driven stories. When it comes to the characters, I think that Big the Cat will be used much more in the future. He has become this really popular meme on the internet and it seems like Sega wants him to stay as a little side joke here and there. Other characters like Blaze and Silver are a bit harder to judge. I think they will scrap the idea of those two characters been from a different dimension/time period and make them residents of Sonic's world. As for Team Dark, I kinda see them becoming the official main rivals for Team Sonic, but more in the way like the Babylon Rouges were in the Riders series. Rivals, but in a more friendly way. As for the world. I think it will be more like an adventure fantasy world, kind alike within Zelda, but more with a modern urban setting rather than a medieval one. Also, I think that outside of Eggman we will not see any humans for a while. They still exist in this world, but we will not see them and focus more on Sonic styled-characters. Then we have the political topics, that are actually quite common in modern, western cartoons: She-Ra, the new TMNT and DuckTales, Voltron etc. It could happen also with Sonic. Maybe one of the characters, new and old, will be in a homosexual relationship. But I see this more happening to either a brand new character or a minor one like either Blaze, Espio or Silver. We can not really turn Amy into a lesbian. Here thing is, that she is with Sonic. I also can see more strong female characters making the cut, by either introduce more of them, as they did with Tangle and Whisper or turning some of the older ones like Cream, Marine, and maybe Vanilla into ones. I'm also not 100% if we see in the future more girly like characters. Been nowadays to girly or been too feminine seems to be an insult here in the west. Like a lot of the newer Disney movies make fun of the princess for been... well, princesses. If for example Cream and Vanilla return, they have to tone them down with their girly character traits and also Amy will most likely take a step back with her girly antics. But these political themes are more common in movies, cartoons, and comics. I do not think, that we see them in games, but more for a brand new cartoon show. This is how I see it. What do you think.
  15. Yeah, but nowadays you have to have more females that stick out, not only a handful.
  16. A lot of old school series didn't handle their females correctly: Crash, Spyro, B-K, Conker, Mario, Zelda etc.
  17. In Nitro Kart, Oxide was actually smaller than Tiny and N. Trance. Taller than, Crash, Cortex, and Coco, but much not as tall as other characters.
  18. I think Oxide was always met to be small or have normal human size, it was just his vehicle that was pretty big.
  19. Why buy them if you can read them online? That is what I do.
  20. You will see how this go. SJWs will suck out everything that is 90s fun, even the more minor things like the CTR Trophy Girls. Those people will not stop with their censoring until they ruined everything. They ruined StarWars, they ruined Ghostbusters, they ruined DuckTales and they might also ruin Crash in the future.
  21. Yeah, back then, but time changes the taste of humans. Look at Apu from the Simpsons. 10/20 years ago no one had a problem with him, but now, in our politically correct climate, he is now suddenly a very offensive character. Same could happen with the Trophy Girls from Crash. I have a feeling nowadays every female character has to be like Rey from Disney's Star Wars; a hardcore action-girl who is perfect in every single way. If they are portrait as anything else, the SJWs will get angry and try to change everything of a property so that it will fit with their agenda. I still think that the Trophy Girls will be handled in a different way than before. They will be either be playable or written out completely.
  22. I don't think any Sonic character will be forgotten unless they do not have the typical appealing Sonic-design or serve as meme fodder like Big does. I think only human and human-like characters like Maria, Elise, Shahra and Merlina, and non-sexy anthro-characters like the Deadly Six and Lyric will be sooner or later written off for good. Maybe even the Whisp some day. But characters like Cream will stay and show up sooner or later. I'm pretty sure that Sticks and Marine will also show up sooner or later.
  23. It is really strange, but if they have to cut one character, I think it would be poor Moe. Maybe they think one of the Komodo Bros. is enough. They can also cut off someone else like Brio or Kong.
