    Not particularly enticed about a kart spin-off, but please tell me I'm not alone hoping that echoing Sonic Forces, classic Sonic will be in and that he gets his little car from Sonic Drift.

    Don’t get me wrong, if there’s a story mode I’d be down for that (as long as the gameplay’s up to snuff). And there’s nothing up with wanting one either.
    But I don’t think it should be a priority, which is the point I was responding to. Nor do I think a precedent is there just because of some hoverboard games by a different studio from years ago.

    I'd personally love for them to include a proper story mode. We've seen it work for the Riders series and, at the end of the day, it'd simply be another mode to enjoy that you can either take or leave (much like SSE was in brawl). This notion of they shouldn't do it because other racers haven't seems sort of off imo. The industry wouldn't advance forward at all with that type of thinking.
    The truth of the matter is that Sonic has just about always had a higher narrative level than most other platformers. Even with the original titles, they did a lot with the hardware they had to build stakes. Like it or not, narrative is something this series has been linked with for a long while now. Not to say that every facet of the franchise has to adhere to that (goes back to the idea that there simply isn't one definite version of Sonic game to enjoy), but it is something that has been here for the vast majority of the series that a decent number of fans do care about.
    It'd be especially good to see one if ST isn't developing this. As far as I've seen, just about every other source outside of them can currently make a better story than they can.
    Though, of course, there are quite a few other modes in there that I'd like to see over it; mainly proper online. Not the buggy mess Transformed launched with.(though, in a perfect world, there'd be different teams within the dev working on both things so that one mode doesn't compromise another but hey)
     
    Not to mention that it's literally a cake and ice cream scenario. If ya don't like the ice cream/ cake, put it on someone else's plate and move on. No one likes the guy who yells "I don't like ice cream so there shouldn't be any, anywhere in the first place!"

    Not in a racing spin-off, no. I felt ASRT was a perfectly full experience without some story thing tacked on, because they focused on good gameplay instead.
    And good for you like, but Sonic's roots are firmly in arcade-style gameplay. Obviously it's free to evolve, but David Cage's Sonic the Hedgehog ain't my bag and going off how well Mania (and the Classics in general really) have done over other titles, it ain't exactly other folks' either.

    You might. Other people don't. Because not everyone is coming from your "story above all else" direction.

    Yeah, right now I don't expect a story mode either. Likewise I don't see how Sonic R/Drift being Classic or ASRT being a crossover meant it made sense for those to not have story modes. Riders had a story mode yes, but that's... it. I don't see why that would somehow establish a standard on its own - for the Riders games yes, for racers in general no.
    And a story sure as hell isn't 'required like in a platform game'. Riders has a story but I'd still rather pick up Transformed any day - it's far from necessary.

    Which is fine, I just don't know that it necessitates a whole story mode to accomplish that. Plenty of similar racers can pull that off with well timed dialogue triggers in gameplay or etc.

    Again, not that a story mode would be the end of the world, I don't really mind if they put one in. I just don't think it's absolutely necessary for the game to be good, either. And if it doesn't have a story, that's not going to really upset me at all.

    R.C. reacted to NezumiVA in Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game   
    Eh, I don't really...agree? How do I phrase this.
    First of all, the idea of it being a scheme by Eggman is kind of a no brainer at this point - I mean...what in the series at this point isn't, usually?
    And character interactions/competition are easily conveyed in in-game dialogue triggers, similar to other racers and even fighters, y'know?

    I don't mind if the new racing game has a story, but if it doesn't I wouldn't necessarily find it to be a wasted opportunity, just a more traditional racer.

    Like I said, that's assuming the game even has a story mode to begin with.
    Sure, the Riders games did - but R didn't, neither did All-Stars Racing Transformed for that matter. And most popular group centric mascot racers of the current era (looking at you, Mario Kart 142) don't either. Not to say it's out of the question, but it's not a guarantee.

    Plus even when racers in most franchises do have stories, they don't usually try to tie themselves very heavily to the main canon as much as they just try to be goofy racing sidestories. The Riders games in Sonic are by no means the norm, they're quite the rare exception, next to similar ideas like CTR/Nitro Kart.

    Except I'm not talking about main title games, a Racer is a spin-off at most. 
    Mario Kart games have had Mario and Baby Mario, for example. I just don't think in a spin-off title, in a genre that historically boasts on big character rosters of characters people love from that particular property, that having Classic Sonic in it would be that big of a deal. In another main title? I don't think they should keep putting him in. Generations and Forces was more than enough. But in a Racer? I just don't see the big issue. What's to be bothered about?

    R.C. reacted to NezumiVA in Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game   
    Not to say that it's impossible or even unlikely...but you guys say that with a lot of certainty that there will even be a dedicated story mode.
    Not that it's not certainly a possibility, but you can't be sure yet considering nothing about the game's really come to light.

    Also as far as racers with plots...? They're so meager and branching from their main series counterparts usually anyway that honestly, Classic Sonic being part of a potential story mode doesn't really bother me. Another mainline title? Please stop shoving him in. But a spinoff racer...? Who really cares, at that point, y'know?

    Yeah, as one of the many, many people who were annoyed at how Classic Sonic was shoehorned into Forces, I wouldn’t mind seeing him in this racing spin-off at all, assuming it’s not plot-heavy. I mean, if Mario Kart 8 can have four different variations of Mario all racing together at the same time, I don’t see how a spin-off racing game with two different versions of Sonic is the worst thing ever. With that being said, I think spin-offs should be the only exception to having both Modern and Classic Sonic together in the same game at this point.

    Honestly Sonic racers don't tend to be too story heavy, so if they had any classic characters I wouldn't necessarily be opposed. Classic Sonic's inclusion in Forces was as forced (pun intended) as it gets, but Racers typically have much less actual plot to them and are more about the razzle dazzle and unique character stats so...it's more of a novelty that way.

    I remember when a lot of us were upset that Forces wouldn't show us a lot of stuff. Turns out that wasn't the case. There just wasn't a lot to show.

    Because it releases later than the Mania DLC. 
    Same thing happened last year to Forces.

    R.C. reacted to ScarlyNight in Sonic Mania: Version 1.04 and Plus DLC PS4 Leaks (SPOILERS)   
    Hello there, I just joined because of the discussion people were having about my livestream from last Friday, as well as the article of the issue in question, which I just discovered. To go over a bit of backstory; some people over at the Sonic Mania Modding Discord server had found out about the playable Angel Island Zone. Not sure if it were fake or not, I've decided to stream the game using the 1.04 update. To everyone's surprise, it turned out to be real! After a bit of exploring and running around, we stumbled across the capsule where Mighty and Ray were trapped in, but since it has been confirmed that the version I played was actually an earlier version of Encore mode (suspecting that once the actual DLC is available and downloaded, the data from that will overwrite the current one that we discovered), they were both Sonic's. afterwards, we went into another cutscene which I skipped after going through it a second time,  which suprisingly brought us to Encore Green Hill Zone. From there, I must've played through it until Lava Reef Zone act 2, where I was forced to shut the whole thing down by SEGA themselves, afterwards thanking me for responding to their reply. I was honestly very shocked to see a majority of Encore's content could've been enabled by using a backdoor of sorts.
     
    From what I've experienced, Encore mode does not include any new achievements as of right now. It could always change though.

    Yo, seeing and hearing Angel Island makes me wish it was a full level in the game in the place of Green Hill, as much as I like its Mania version.

    I'm not too worried about it affecting sales - it's relatively obscure and somewhat annoying to pull off glitch, pretty limited (AIZ is broken, can only be done with no save mode, cutscenes break it, Special Stages reset the game etc), and is missing two key components (Mighty and Ray, and the team swap mechanic).

    I would totally buy gritty dark Mario movie. Humanity hides in a sewers from terrifying dragon king. Mario used mushroom based drugs (ala Bane) and flamethrowers that uses flowers as fuel. He rides actual dinsosaur to battle and Wario is genetically engineered clone gone wrong. If it's self-aware it would be amazing.

    Yeah... no. It was the wrong choice.  Sonic just doesn't work as a alive action compared to some other things, this is just another mistake in a long line of mistakes by SEGA. Sonic has always been a series aimed at mainly kids regardless if we old fans like that or not, and 1 or 2 try hard movies won't change that. This movie like most game movies will highly likely flop just like all the others. I do find it funny however not only are you trying to demean all animated movies by saying they are only for little kids, but also that they can't be just as popular as big name live action movies... which is just wrong in so many ways.
    On a side note. At least Nintendo has wised up and are making their next Mario Movie a CGI cartoon movie only.

    So, we got a bit of new information on what Mania Plus will include thanks to the Japanese soundtrack list that was added on the official site.
    http://sonic.sega.jp/SonicMania/sp/index.html#contents-soundtrack
    As expected, there will be a full mix of Angel Island Zone in the game. There will also apparently be a pinball bonus stage with a remix of Trap Tower from SegaSonic Arcade; now that's awesome! Can't wait to hear the additional tracks!
