  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. I actually like her de-design, yeah it is more on the furry side, but it actually sticks out.
  9. 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.
  10. Yeah, but nowadays you have to have more females that stick out, not only a handful.
  11. A lot of old school series didn't handle their females correctly: Crash, Spyro, B-K, Conker, Mario, Zelda etc.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. I'm not sure if some post-Naughty Dog characters will be playable in this game. It could happen, but I'm not so sure about it.
  18. Nowadays you never know, what will offend people. We will see, how they will handle the trophy girls. But if they do not return, I won't be surprised by it. Sometimes I think SJWs want to get offended so that they can go on the internet and rant about it.
  19. I do not like any of those two choices. Sonic has such a big catalog to pull off from. Why does this series have to reduce itself to a small list of things it can and can not do? Why not go wild and choose something like Kingdom Valley, or Sanahhah Citadelle, or Sweet Mountain? Why always rehash the same setting over and over again?
  20. Did Nitros Oxide always had sharp teeth? I can not remember that he had them in the old games. And as for the four trophy girls. I'm still not 100% if they will be in this game. You guys know how Social Justice Warriors are. Maybe they will start complaining about, why the majority of the female characters in this game are reduced to background characters and not been playable or cry about the name "trophy girl", meaning for them, that guys own a girl as a trophy. SJWs are the worst. But if the four trophy girls will not show up in the game, you can thank those pc people for that. I only see two ways how they will handle them. They either write them off completely or make them playable racers.
  21. I have to say, the zombot idea is kinda clever, but a bit complicated in how this infection really works. The two new skunk characters really do not seem to be living creatures anymore. Amy chomp one of them his arm off and it grew back. They are nothing more than a walking goo of liquid metal.
  22. I still hope we will see some new tracks. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe had 48 tracks. Everything under 30 just seems so... empty. And I know it is a bit unfair to compare this to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe since this is a remake from a very old game, but you kinda have to compete somehow with Mario.
  23. We have more rumors of a brand new track based on the medieval levels from Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped.
  24. Artists always change stuff. Look at the new Rise of the TMNT where April is suddenly is a young African-American young girl and no longer a grown up Irish woman. Same could also happen with Maria.
  25. Good question. I think Shadow is now just another rival for Sonic who wants to beat him and show the others that he is better than Sonic in everything. Kinda like with Gary in Pokémon or King Dedede in Kirby.
