    Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game

    Something like Rusty Ruin or Lost World feels within the realm of possibility!! Overall, there has been no statement so far yet about DLC levels I hope; it would be entirely possible for them to offer even at least some for no cost? several levels to extend the game over a few years!

    Are Sonic's stages in Adventure unusually dated?

    It is a really good point that you have made, about how the reoccurring moments of adjusting and correcting are common to most 3D platforming titles of the era. Significant, and sometimes impossible (it would have to be programmed for each individual possible interaction) automation would have been required in place of the sometimes ineffective controls and cameras!

    Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game

    For me personally, the simultaneous reveal of BOO'S HOUSE and Tee Lopes as someone who is composing for this game, it seems very likely that there will be a city track that could include elements of Studiopolis!! Speed Highway and City Escape feel like very logical reference points as well!!

    Sega Ages Collection (Switch)

    Yes..!! There must still be plenty of concepts for Sonic 2 that have not reached a place of public knowledge. Perhaps it could be a different version of the Special Stage, or maybe even transitions between zones!!

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (December 7th) - PLEASE SPOILER TAG LEAKS

    Theoretically some echo fighters could be added within a patch even! That is, I'm not sure that the DLC/Fighters' Pass characters will include new echoes, where they are described as being made from scratch. So, new echoes could be an eventual surprise addition. I could see Mighty appearing as an echo, I suppose he would be about as small as classic Sonic is to modern, which would be an interesting twist! ( To some extent I think it is possible Shadow was not upgraded to an echo because, perhaps both to the Smash developers and contacts with SEGA, might have been in agreement that ideally he should have a distinct fighting style!! )

    Sonic Mania: Sequel Speculation (Spoilers)

    Theoretically they do have a few layers/eras of concept art and written concepts for more original zones, meaning, the Sonic Discovery era, and maybe from one or more brainstorming sessions within the development process for Mania!

    Power Stone

    Here is a Power Stone tournament video from a Dreamcast 19th anniversary gathering!! What I didn't realize coming back here to post this due to it initally already being a topic from before I joined the board, is, (I think at least, due to having the same name), Giza, the originator of this thread is featured very prominently within!!

    Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game

    Sumo Digital and SEGA do benefit from this specific game being very good, but, not TOO too good! There will probably be a sequel game at some point, possibly even for the 30th anniversary!! So it is helpful for there to be lots of room to grow including in character roster and the overall feel of the gameplay.

    Power Stone

    !! That is a very surprising and encouraging interview excerpt! I think it says something that the publication was given the OK to include all of that! Maybe CAPCOM has been observing both Overwatch as a phenomenon, and the continued enthusiasm for Smash Bros and realized that they have a chance to make a combination of both within their reach! Perhaps they would allow the number of fighters per room to be set by the host. If it somehow would be an open world; it could be very exciting to include new abilities from Power Fusion that would allow very fast travel over or through the landscapes!

    Power Stone

    I had been considering a Power Stone Appreciation topic, but sensed there must be one already and here it is!! As so much has already been written by everyone above i will just mention one of the main ideas that I wanted to mention in my topic: There are combos in Power Stone (1) that are simply not listed in the manuals!! There is a gamefaqs document from decades ago that mapped them all out but did not describe what each one was. This is it, it is not unbiased as a guide, some interpretations of the characters' viability in particular are puzzling, but it does provide what seems to be the complete list of combos for each character!!! https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/dreamcast/198332-power-stone/faqs/7589 I think that eventually this topic will have a descriptive list of them! For now it can be mentioned that, some of them do basically have special moves within them, a few of them are more visual in simply presenting a different movement of the character. If you enjoy the game and have not used these before they will feel very literally game changing!! In general, although a new Power Stone has not happened since the time that this topic was created, it feels more possible than ever before. It could happen in a few years for the 20th anniversary of Power Stone 2!! Hopefully it would bring back many of the attributes of the original Power Stone.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (December 7th) - PLEASE SPOILER TAG LEAKS

    Hmm!! This does remind me of the discussions and articles that are appearing lately, as far as, what would be the next step for Smash Bros. after this game? Perhaps what it might be is to have the story mode become similar to an RPG, but, using the Smash format for battles. Perhaps though the story mode will introduce levels for characters as well as layers of special moves that would be learned. What Crono reminds me of is, that this could also result in something equivalent to Double and Triple Techs..!! For this game to also be on Switch, it would be a good counterpart to Ultimate rather than a followup game.

    Sonic Mania: Version 1.04 and Plus DLC PS4 Leaks (SPOILERS)

    Yes; there is the question of, what will happen over the next three years (That is, the next new 2D game for the 30th anniversary in 2021 seems like a dependable and wonderful situation, and, there would be just the right amount of time for the teams involved to create it!!) before a new full game would theoretically be released? Mania and Mania Plus in their current forms will have a good lasting effect until whenever the next game would be. Yet, to go through all of 2019, and 2020, with nothing new at all via DLC, that feels a bit unlikely! It is quite complicated to guess what it could be. A single zone or two zone mini story to download at some point before the new game would fill the gap. Similar to Plus it would also be allowing new team members to learn the processes to then work together with everyone on the main new game.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (December 7th) - PLEASE SPOILER TAG LEAKS

    Hmm... do you think that Smash Ultimate could introduce both Drs. Eggman and Wily?? They would be very close to including most of the main antagonists, so they would probably have decided to bring them both..!

    Sonic Mania: Sequel Speculation (Spoilers)

    !! This does seem to be more fruitful a result from the ruby portal than some type of DLC episode within Forces. And it could turn out to be both! There is the fan character Omelette who is, if i am remembering correctly, enjoyed by some of the Mania team members; especially that the design emerged by chance from their own graphics! In the story of the classic timeline, there has never been much of any damage to Eggman's factories and laboratories. Any relative of his, whether literally that character, or a similar one, could have been somewhere within these complexes learning and developing their own technology etc! Sometime after his disappearance into the portal, they could take Eggman's role. Maybe this power vacuum would also cause more activity from Fang, Bark and Bean simultaneously, or, even later on within the new agme's story!

    Sonic Mania: Version 1.04 and Plus DLC PS4 Leaks (SPOILERS)

    As someone who hasn't yet personally played through Mania, due to waiting to find out if the PC version will ever become available without Denuvo; there have been some benefits: especially how the sense that both Mania and Mania Plus are real games is still sinking in! It is very wonderful and surreal to see even something as simple as a Mighty and Knuckles saved game. It can feel like being a time traveller!
