      Though to be fair if this means that all of this will be Luffy singlemindedly aiming for the one piece till that point, then pulling a 180 on the journey and actually getting invested in the world events like he was with Fishman Island instead, that'll be pretty cool I suppose. Plus they could actually get to use all the roster and politics they built up and left behind without having to set up any new settings as well, kinda doing a reverse marathon of the world to reach the capital/whoever becomes the ultimate threat in the story

      Considering how much story happens off screen in the series, though, I'm not really holding my breath that it won't be all flashbacks/backstory

  2. The next big Sonic game is finally being revealed... the full 3D boost formula is shown in a few clips... an unstable world warps into existence right in front of Sonic, stopping him in his tracks... then out of the corner of his eye, he catches the glimpse of a flaming blur speeding into the distance...

      Honestly I've been wanting to see a new boost game that takes more inspiration from the Rush games. And not just because of Blaze, lol. It was nice the Rush games still had unique level gimmicks for example.

  3. Forget rolling physics and level design, Metal Sonic in GT actually makes the boost good again

     

    • Builds up speed gradually but has no (noticeable) top speed
    • Eats up rings like no tomorrow, demanding that you focus on collecting them to play well...
    • But doesn't cancel back to the base speed when you do lose it, leaving the best way to play through using it throughout the level rather than one area like Colors
    • And it doesn't break platforming in half, since if you're falling already, it's too gradual to stop you from falling

    Plus when you do fly, it's as Metal Sonic, and it feels cool as hell to pull off

  4. As soon as I saw the final boss for Sonic GT, I knew I had to personally run through it and document this for the good of the Sonic community and humanity itself

    giphy.gif

    It is done

  5. Part of me wants ports of 3D Sonic games to modern systems, especially in collection form, but imo that’s where the 3D fangamer’s back door is, like Taxman’s was with the classics, soooo... kinda holding out for that outcome instead tbh

  6. Sure all of this is anti consumer but as long as Nintendo can play the consumer demand + scarcity card to get people to actually buy full priced ports, this is going to get worse and worse, not better. Money says more than verbal outcry ever could to a company.

    You think SMG2 was left out on accident? Nah they want to keep the demand for that one fresh enough for a remaster on the next big system.

    Only way to stop it is for everyone to stop buying the games or for Nintendo to eat dirt so hard, they have no option but to pull out all the big guns just to try and get their fans to come back out of goodwill appeal. Not counting on either option anytime soon tbh

  7. No Straight Roads looks to be entirely my kinda jam from the aesthetic, music, and setpieces being used by it, but the actual gameplay and story... Eeeh, I dunno what it's going for? If it felt like it'll be something as tightly made as Undertale this would have been an insta-purchase for me, but with everything I've seen from those two departments (level/stage design especially feels oddly pointless) it just feels more confusing to me and feels like the game is missing a core part of itself in the process. Maybe I'm just not seeing the full picture right now, but from what I have seen it feels like a shame, as the concept totally rules and really deserves a kickass game backing it

      I picked it up yesterday because on EGS I could basically get it for $15 off. I'm planning on playing it soon so we'll see how it goes. For a studio's first outing, I wanted to give it a proper go as the music, artstyle, and bosses do seem to hit hard.

    I'd say that this conversation would be a good sign for Paper Mario's story, but it just feels fresh out of a fever dream when you realize what it's applying to in-game

  9. So we're clearly past the point where "The art style doesn't matter, Sonic is Sonic" with how many people went from loving to balking at this project from a style shift alone, right?

    Like yeesh, I know the two groups of games went for different directions and should have different audiences, but it shouldn't matter this much, especially to the point people actually leak/sabotage fangames over it, of all things...

    1. Wraith

      Wraith

      Classic fans drew the line in the sand and declared anything released after the fact toxic and the franchise has largely started to adopt that logic. It's pretty natural for fans of later eras to think they don't really have a place when they see that artstyle.

      Sonic used to be Sonic, but it's not the case anymore.

    2. Tracker_TD

      Tracker_TD

      Sonic is Sonic, until it's not the Sonic they want, and then it's not Sonic. Same logic as the Adventure diehard fans who criticise the brand's use of nostalgia (which is a totally valid complaint, obviously), but then demand... SEGA cater to their nostalgia. 

      I called this happening a while ago actually, I just didn't expect Project Hero being the impetus for it to come out in the open.

      "The situation doesn't matter, the Sonic fanbase is the Sonic fanbase" seems like a much more consistent mantra to take up lol

  10. Wait why are people going on about Xbox as if they have to sell the console on anyone

    Consoles have never made up these companies' main profit margins. Live, Gamepass, and Xcloud will all generate far more revenue than the console sales will, and as long as you're buying individual games through the windows store on your windows PC, they've already won as far as they're concerned.

    Kinda crazy that a console being "sold" on us doesn't matter anymore in the grand scheme of things, huh?

    1. pppp

      pppp

      Well then why have the console at all? If Services and Streaming are their focus why not just become a 3rd party?

    2. Bobnik

      Bobnik

      It's less about wanting to sell the console to people and more about wanting them to directly compete with Sony, which was the brand's initial point. As soon as Xbox stops doing, Sony has free reign to do pretty much anything, and that's not a good thing. Sure, there's Nintendo, but they've also gone on a different direction that doesn't compete with these consoles.

    3. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      For the people who already have a vested interest in the system ecosystem and already have an alliance with the series' it features as exclusives. (Which is why I put "sold" in airquotes tbph) Just because they're not the main profit margins doesn't mean they're entirely useless to sell, especially when people still have the need for entertainment units and less-than-optimal internet speeds/PC specs.

      And they already are, to an extent. As long as their service can run on a device, they stand to gain from it running on the device. They're not fully on any of the competitor consoles, (yet) but anything that requires xbox infrastructure to fully play, they've been happy to allow on other systems. They have been a lot more lenient on what they allow on other consoles outside of that as well, though, such as Cuphead, Ori, and allowing Banjo in SSBU, but that just comes with the territory of the fact that they're not competing to retain exclusives for the sake of selling the ecosystem anymore so much as trying to one-up everyone when it comes to service perks while the iron's hot.

    4. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      @Bobnik I mean I suppose, if the idea is that only key critical darlings/nostalgic IPs as exclusives count as the only competition that could stand in their way, but the backwards compatibility and HD patches, the services such as Gamepass and play anywhere, the raw specs of the console - I dunno, none of that really feels like they're rolling over their belly and conceding defeat as they're making the transition to service-based success either, imo

    5. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      Judging by the reactions tonight, if they wanted to sell more of their service, they didn't even achieve that. People are just looking at the PS5 more than before.

    6. Bobnik

      Bobnik

      Here's the thing - despite them making the "most powerful console", they're just not commiting to it, to the point where it feels like they're making this machine out of obligation. They think that "generations" are over (when Sony clearly showed they're not), they're boasting the engagement numbers on GamePass instead of trying to get the consoles, they're not having any next-gen exclusive stuff for a couple of years (they announced next-gen only titles, but they have no date or even any footage because they're not coming till 2022 at least). Hell, Phil himself said that Sony isn't their competition now, but Amazon and Stadia. If that doesn't say "yeah, we give up", then I dunno what does. Well, outside of not selling consoles at all.

    7. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      I think this is a key thing most people forget when it comes time for new hardware. For these companies, it's never really about shipping out hardware. A lot of the time, they actually lose money with these things. It's always been about actually selling games. These companies simply make the push for hardware as a way to lock people into their ecosystem to do just that.

      What we're seeing right now is the industry beginning to splinter again. Happened back with the Wii and Nintendo going their own route. Atm, I believe Microsoft is trying to follow their own path too where they care more about people simply playing their games and paying for services rather than just going head to head with Sony.

      So at this point, yes, Microsoft does probably see the Series X as more of a formality for those who don't have a decent PC and/or prefer the classic console experience. The writing for this has been on the wall for a while now, way back to when they decided to allow Minecraft on everything under the sun. Whether this will work out better for them in the long run remains to be seen. Hell, it ain't like Nintendo has been selling completely well on their path since 2006.

      Speaking for myself though, I will say that I've probably played way more Microsoft games in the last few years than I ever would've if they were locked down to the console ecosystem simply due to it being on a platform like the PC that I'm more ready to use (and I own a One). On the flip side, I feel like I've also skipped out on a number of PS titles simply due to me not wanting to go through the trouble of hooking back in my PS4 and dealing with its limitations. It's why I'm psyched to finally be able to play Horizon Zero Dawn in a few weeks with its PC release.

      Meeting the consumer where they are is a powerful thing that I hope more of the industry adopts as a whole.

      I’d argue console exclusives exist to sell systems, not the other way around

    They even got a vocal main theme and everything hot dang

  12. Wait... I was under the impression that there were at least TTYD character cameos in Super Paper Mario, but looking back, they didn't even have that, did they?

    Was the "No toads in wigs" mandate made immediately after TTYD was finished or something?

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      They're collectible Catch Cards in the bonus areas. 

       

      But you may have a point there, as the new characters in OK fall under the loophole of looking nothing like the designs of the normal Mario characters. SPM's character design consists of simple geometry as well, so this may have been a thing for longer than initially thought

      The cameos are at the beginning.

      Not that Toads were partners anyway, only 1 Toad is even in that game.

      Even still, “previously announced titles” doesn’t give me much confidence in what could be shown, especially in 10 minutes.

      Hes also saying that the Mario remasters will be there but honestly I think that’s one thing that he could be wrong about, given what natedrake is saying about what Nintendo told investors about the year’s plans vs how they’re actually turning out conflicts with each other. We’ll see though

    5. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      Actually never mind looks like he’s backtracking on that statement as well for now

       

    6. KHCast

      KHCast

      Huh. Wonder if the leaks partly pushed nintendo to change course if that’s indeed true.

       

      Anyway, if not the Mario Remasters, Bayonetta 3, BotW 2 and Metroid Prime 4 would be my hope, but for all we know, it could be 10 minutes of fucking Bakugan

       

      Also I’m doubting they’ll be another smash character reveal unless it’s done in the Arms fashion

      I have no idea originally, but that's the date the insiders have been using since before Paper Mario released. I'd have to look it up to find where it actually came from but it's been pretty readily accepted from what I've seen, so I suppose it came from someone credible...

      Spoiler

      For the record I don't see them continuing the direct label (for now) if they really need to go the non-presentation route, given that they have been focusing really heavily on game-by-game "directs" for the past year, and seem to be content announcing games like Paper Mario outside of them and less than two months before release. If it isn't dead, it's at least taking a backseat for now imo

    Throwing your hands behind you to homing attack legit looks fun to pull off

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Well it has that same "exercise your arms" feel the Wii and other "waggle"-centric games had, so there's that. Sonic's made to play like a walking roller coaster, so it's shouldn't be too much different from going on a real roller coaster (especially the ones that also have VR). You can stomach that, then you can stomach this.

       

      But they must get rid of the nose; I don't need something blocking my view to deliver the fact that I'm "Sonic The Hedgehog tm". The gloves get the point across just fine.

      i think i've heard that having a nose rendered in vr helps some people with motion sickness, or something like that.

    3. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      That demo is cool af. That being said, there is no way that feels ok to play after a couple of minutes. VR can make you sick from even little things like your head tracking being slightly off. I can’t imagine a lot of this making anyone feel well for an extended period of time.

    4. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      Well the dev says he's been studying VR for a while to eliminate motion sickness altogether, so we'll see.

      I (still) don't have a headset yet so I gotta get on that first, but one of my favorite things about 3D Sonic is the roller-coaster nature of the world design, and VR feels like it'd take that appeal and amp it up to 110. Definitely looking forward to trying this out.

      Wish it was open source, so that there could be the potential for others to make their own levels. Then again, every open source engine always gets copy-pasted assets and levels at best, so eh, probably wouldn't be worth the extra effort...

      SA2 generally has an issue with enemies and obstacles landing cheap shots until you know the levels inside out, but Mission Street is one of the worst offenders.
