    Finally... a game to easily compare what asking for Star Fox to be like Sin and Punishment/Bayonetta/Kid Icarus/W101 would be like

    vs what I enjoy out of Star Fox's core gameplay that makes Star Fox uniquely Star Fox, and more 3D arcade flight 'sim' than simple on-rail shmup

    (these both look amazing btw, check them out if you're able)

      it's the old adage of "if you want something done right, you'll have to go do it yourself"

      nintendo's been fucking up star fox for so long that barring a complete overhaul in management, they'll likely never make another good SF that's not hamstrung by gimmicks and finally delivers the real modernized, original sequel to SF64 people have wanted since that game or SF assault. (not helped by their fanboys defending their decisions with "SF is outdated/was never good/never a big seller" revisionist hot takes)

      at which point, you just start building your own SF project and either turn it into an original IP you control, or hope nintendo notices and strikes a deal with you to make it an official SF game. there's few if any true competitors to SF, so the vacuum in the market is there for fans to take up with their own games.

      that's just simply the reality of the thing.

  2. @Ferno holy shit you just reminded me that with that new interview, this decade old gif I made has new relevance looool


  3. whoa nice banner change

      Eh? I don't see it. Is it because I'm on mobile?

      The Deleter

      yea it doesn't show up on mobile



    3. Thigolf


      The wait for the banner change was worth it

    4. VisionaryofSUPER


      That is a nice banner.

    5. Milo


      Even the mobile banner is different from before. Can’t exactly describe it but I think the logo is bigger.

      It was the Sonic rangers details leaks, though more is out there 👀

  5. GAME IS CALLED SONIC RANGERS IT'S EVEN MENTIONED IN THE ARTICLE BELOW AHAHAHAHA https://www.akibagamers.it/27-05-2021/sonic-the-hedgehog-annunciato-un-nuovo-titolo-sviluppato-dal-team-sonic/ and even

      ...why not just say it if you already have the title

    3. Strickerx5


      Huh, would explain the forest at least.

  6. SONIC RANGERS (prototype name???)


    1. Stasis


      Even better when you go through the thread and some guy called it Sonic Rangers 10 hours before

  7. I'm having trouble finding the source for several of the previously assumed development details, so I figure rather than making an entirely new topic for it, I'll just post these here for further documentation: This excerpt from Iizuka is taken from the Forces OST notes, and mentions some slight details about Forces development: How the game had major changes and troubled future at certain points in the middle of development, which would seemingly back up the Sonic Wars and beta script situations, and how Iizuka relocated during the middle of development for the game back during March 2016. (another detail worth noting is that the overseas offices requested no vocal tracks in Sonic Generations lol) https://tailschannel.com/sonic-the-hedgehog/studio/sonic-forces-development-details-uncovered/ And in the translated article here, CGWorld reports on a development timeline that extends past the "one year of development" claims many cite the game's rough results on. Engine development consisted of one year of planning and research, and two years of production, while some of the main tools for the game production were developed for the explicit purpose of the simultaneous development of the game alongside it, with the article stating "Because game development was going on at the same time as engine development, it took a lot of trial and error on part of the designers to adapt to the new way of making things until the flow of production was fixed." Unclear which year the following sentence refers to, though.
  8. I know there's a controversy and a half around Sonic Omens, but Area 99 is probably my favorite Sonic stage to play through in recent memory. There's still flaws to it but I can't help but imagine an alternate reality where all of Forces stages were like this instead

    Insanely fun stuff

      Even if that ain't final it at least it gives us something different to dicuss versus the same ol' stuff like this-maxresdefault.jpg

      Superb balance on fusing the normal and Boom proportions as well.

      If this is towards the end (where I assume after Knuckles quits being a bad guy), I hope this isn't in Green Hills again like in the last film's final battle

  10. Yo go check out the game @Kaze no Klonoa's team is working on; it's looking like an absolutely amazing Rhythm/Adventure game so far!



    1. DanJ86


      Neat. I like the visual art style and animation. Plus I do enjoy a good rhythm game.

    2. Kaze no Klonoa

      Kaze no Klonoa

      haha thanks! I'm really excited about the project, working on getting the [white label] demo out tonight ;_;

  11. I really hope the added content for the game is going to be crazier than just a few simple additions. Colors is the one game where you could add tons of new content to with the least amount of assets to be made. And even then, a Mother Wisp side story would be pretty amazing as well.

    Won't get my hype up until I see a trailer with the confirmed additions yet though, lol

    1. Ferno


      It would be nice if the Ultimate name implies that the story elements include the DS stuff as well, like the extended cast being up there too, even if they felt shoehorned in.

    2. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Dreaded thought: What if they tried shoe horning not just the DS Wisps, but the Lost World, Ghost and completely new wisp altogether?

    3. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      Yeah the ultimate name carries a lot of weight to it. If the new content is only like, new multiplayer maps and that's it, it's gonna feel weaker than if the game had no subtitle lol

      At the same time it's hard to imagine what content Sonic Team would consider worthy of the Ultimate name. All we know is that it's new so I'll just wait until then tbh

    4. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      @Supah Berry Oh yeah that's actually a thought I had as well lol. It'd be way more work but like... technically that would be the ultimate Sonic Colors experience wisp wise. Just bring them all back into the game that started it all, with new challenges and stuff

    5. Ferno


      back in the day I wanted the game to be called Sonic Spectrum, but if they called this thing Sonic Colors: Full Spectrum or something that would be perfect

    6. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      I wish it was called Sonic Colors Unleashed even if it would have rubbed salt in the wound lol

    7. Winston


      I really hope that we get some remade music too. Colors has a fantastic soundtrack to me, but it'd be great to have a choice between a remixed sountrack and the original like in the CTR or Spyro remakes, especially if it's by the people that handled the TSR soundtrack. I agree with everything else you guys said, it'll be lame if it's called "Sonic Colors Ultimate" if it's just a remastered port. No other Sonic port has a subtitle at the end of it like that, so I sure hope it's truly the ultimate version of the game. The only thing this can be compared to is SADX and SA2 Battle which each had new content added to the game.  I guess it's not really that big of a thing in the series to begin with outside of Lost World getting ported randomly to Steam. 

    8. Jack-al


      Yep, it'd be lame. Tbf I have a big list of things that could be improved or added, but it's too much, unrealistic and it would require a remake, for example:

      - Rewritten and re-voiced dialogue

      - Playable Tails 

      - Nega Mother Wisp secret boss

      - Side story or expanded Terminal Velocity

      - Reworked Game Land and Co-op

      - Additional DS Wisps Burst and Void

      - Side cast for missions

      It's just too much, we are lucky if we get 2 of these.

    9. JezMM


      I can't see extra Wisps getting added arbitrarily, the wisps and their placement is entirely based on level design, you can't just throw in the ones from other games without editing the levels significantly to give them something to actually do.

    10. The Master

      The Master

      Well they have a HD model of the Mother Wisp now thanks to Team Sonic Racing, just need to make a dark version.

    11. Wraith


      don't expect added content to be significant

    12. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      I expect content. How much content is yet to be determined one way or the other, but not like we need it anyway when mods exist for the PC version tbh

      Don't forget the last time a Sonic port dropped with an added subtitle, though

  12. Alright, new Zippo leaks y'all, thoughts?


    1. Thigolf


      I mean, it sounds believable enough, I guess. Nothing out of the ordinary, the usual internal Sega BS that has been going around forever, so it's also easy for someone to just come up with this, but it certainly sounds like something that could've happened. I totally forgot about the Jazwares sign.

      I would absolutely adore seeing in-development screens of that project if it's actually real. 

    2. TheOcelot


      Well, if it's true then it's such a shame remakes got cancelled.

    3. Dejimon11


      I heard a rumor similar to this a couple years ago in a discord server. They did say that SEGA hired a Chinese company to remake SA1 but they weren’t impressed with how the product was turning out. So there might be truth to this. 

    4. Diogenes


      could be true, could be false, doesn't seem to matter much at this point.

    5. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      Yeah my memory is a bit more fuzzy than not, but I remember hearing rumblings about it several years ago as well; specifically where the info was coming from, and a recent BSC video is what triggered this blog post specifically, so 🙊

    6. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Does Zippo have any stuff like Nintendo he'd share, or is Sonic his one focus right now?

    7. Adamabba


      Man I remember how much I wondered what the 2015 game on the Jazwares sign was supposed to be.

    8. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Sounds interesting. But honestly, what is there to discuss here? Internal projects by SEGA got cancelled. There's no proof to speak of. I don't doubt that this sounds plausible, but there's really nothing else to say.

    9. Thigolf


      I always thrive on more reasons to dump on Sega so I'm down with more ammo :V

    10. Wraith


      Thank god they got cancelled 

    11. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      Not really sure to believe it or not even if it does sound like something that Sega would do. I know that there was a Shenmue remake that was in development but was instead scrapped and replaced with ports of 1 and 2. Apparently Sega of China were also working on ports of Skies of Arcadia and others but the retro releases on the PS3/360/PC didn't sell as much as expected, probably also doesn't help with the issues of the NIGHTS port based on the PS2 version that they had done.

      It might have even been exaggerated as pitches happen all the time, it sounds like a pitch that went ahead only to be denied later on.

      Besides something seems off with that post. The Wii U was more or less dead in 2015 with one of the last few games being Zelda: Breath of the Wild that ended up being a Switch launch title. Also to even have a remake, would Iizuka/Sonic Team have to have the go ahead even if they were busy working on something else?

    12. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I will say this; I've noticed SEGA Shanghai in the credits of lots of Sonic games and quickly looking them up on Moby Games reveals how big their list of credits is. They look very much like SEGA's go-to support studio for a lot of things. It seems quite believable that SEGA would off-hand remakes to them and still pull the plug early because of their own mismanagement. We know that Boom was  complete and utter disaster that was at least in part due to their own ineptitude  

    13. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      (I like how some sources say that these remakes were going great and were top tier while in production while others say they were going poorly and got cancelled as a result lol)

    14. Milo


      i feel that even with sega of china handling development instead of modern sonic team, i imagine the developers would had found a way to make the game design worse (esp. for adventure 1), so no real loss there

      beyond that ihavenostrongfeelingsonewayortheother.jpg

    15. TheOcelot
    16. FReaK


      he also claimed that we would get news for the next game by the end of march, which as we all now, did not become a reality. I call BS.

    17. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      @FReaK No he didn't. The actual quote is as follows:

      My guess is that this will air from between the next few weeks [from February 5th] and the end of March, and should go over at least a good bit of what I laid out today. We seem due for a reveal here pretty soon, so i'm of the belief that we may be mere days away from something substantial.

      The "when" in Zippo's leaks was only ever a guess and far less important than the "what".

    18. Zaysho


      I just have a hard time believing they'd have ever bothered. Sega knows they can make money just making their legacy titles available with no bells and whistles on nearly every platform nowadays. I mean it'd be cool if they were considering it and if it's true that Boom gave them cold feet (which, if I'm honest, was a failure that deserved to happen) then that's a shame but I can't be too broken up about it.

      I'd prefer they make a new title in that line and just re-release/remaster/whatever the old ones on whatever platforms don't have them yet anyway.

    19. FReaK


      @Blue Blood thanks for pointing that out, seems like I was wrong there.

      Let's say I will believe him when his previous leak turns out to be the truth. I will wait until then.

    20. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      I mean the two aren't really related tbh

    21. Soniman


      If it's true man did we dodge a bullet with Pontaff being involved 

    22. Piko


      I know Zippo has a good track record, but I’m not buying this at all. Even if it was true, it’s not like we needed remakes anyway. SA1 and 2 are solid games, not perfect but they don’t have enough issues to warrant a remake from the ground up. If it ain’t broken, don’t fix it.

      any second now...

  14. Nah, in general he's been pretty chill with the world around him until he sees it hurting others. He can be, if that's what he's going up against or if that's how the writer wants to portray them in a certain take, but he definitely isn't defined by it.
  15. Might interest everyone to know that the character designer for the Spyro Reignited trilogy was just hired on for Sonic Prime's character designs?


    1. Polkadi~☆



      oh no, he's in too deep

    2. SonicWind


      This is one hell of a pick. Can't wait to see how he worked his magic on this show.

      In related news, Betty Kwong (Ninjago) is also working on the show as a designer:

      That last bit scares me. Now Penders has more of an in than just it being called Prime.

      The Deleter

      @Jango The manager of the website, Ryan Scarlett, already knew some actual details while Zippo was leaking stuff, so yes lol. It's just he's gone awfully quiet on this end lately after updating the banners even on the discord to this, which is :eyes:


      He probably got a press kit tbh

      I'd take my winnings here and now for calling it, but I hereby raise my bet that the main Sonic is the only character from the main verse in the show

    2. JosepHenry


      Honestly... if Prime sonic is alone and we have a roulette of characters each dimension... it could work


      Like the first dimension is 2 episodes long and it has tails knuckles and amy

      The second has shadow rouge and omega

      Third Cream silver blaze


    3. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      Yeah alternate characters are what I'm hopeful for as well. Something along the lines of Tawna in Crash 4

    4. JosepHenry


      God imagine something like

      One dimension is styled like a 1950s detective movie and has the chaotix

      And the other is like team dark being agents in a terminator esque dimension

      Then the other has knuckles and the echidna tribe



      That is the way to do it

    5. dbzfan7


      Oh that is gonna open some bad flood gates in the art circles lol

  19. #36 is out now, for those interested. I have a feeling people might be pretty happy with a small detail at the end, as well 👀

    3. Ferno


      now we just need to find unused audio of him talking to really flip the world upside down

  22. Before that happens it's far more likely SEGA will lax off on the mandates themselves. They obviously brought them into play to standardize the characterizations of Shadow and whoever else across all branches of media, in a "Paper Mario can't have toads with different body designs" for the sake of series homogeny kind of way. Once they've got this, the TV show, the movies, and whatever else they have planned, they'll have accomplished what they set out to do in the first place in terms of brand consistency, and probably will back off from how strictly they demand portrayals. Look at Sonic X; they didn't have any problem with that series developing him further than what he was originally, even though he had to be exactly as he was in SA2 when he was introduced.
  23. I disagree that it's shit writing. I disagree that it's derailing the character. And I especially disagree with it devaluing the character when it actually respects where he came from rather than the (head)canon that the fanbase has assigned his character. Not much else to say outside of that tbh. You don't have to accept that lmao but I certainly don't want to see the portrayal trampled for such a one-sided witch hunt that always happens in this comic/IDW Twitter. I did move on years after I knew the buddy buddy version of Shadow was here to stay due to fan demand. Now it's back and I'm perfectly fine with it lmao And yes, the full issue will have more moments that'll showcase Shadow. I doubt they'll all go over in the exact opposite manner as this line did, but it should be worth reading at least.
