    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - PLEASE SPOILER TAG LEAKS

    A surprise free DLC in mid April that adds Reggie would be... unlikely, but there must be some chance of it happening!!

    Sonic Live Action Movie Thread (Read OP for topic rules)

    Yes, it does seem like that! I am not concerned about the design's actuality, as much as, wondering about whether a hypermodern internet promotion method is at work. Essentially each Sonic series game and playthrough is on screen, exactly as a film would be, so there have already been basically hundreds of millions if not billions of "Sonic movies" that we have been directing since 1991!! Also a very positive aspect is and will continue to be that, between everyone, we have access to many, many antidotes/remedies for being disappointed by any Sonic situation visually and in terms of overall interpretation! :) :)

    One day they may create a new co-op heavy game perhaps as the spiritual successor to Chaotix; though perhaps without the tethering mechanic and vertical zones! Plus is in certain ways as good as already having such a game! But, perhaps this theoretical game could include new perhaps slower but very rewarding ways of cooperative gameplay, such as more puzzles and different formats of them, than would fit into the main new 2D Sonic games!

    Sonic Live Action Movie Thread (Read OP for topic rules)

    There is still a small chance that, rather than introduce, perhaps to some controversy, Modern Sonic but with branded shoes (I thought i saw that in the thread yesterday?), they want to present this false version until perhaps April 1st this year? Then perhaps on that day, introducing the actual version to be used in the film, which would probably be the good one you are describing, the branded shoes would not be as much of an issue.

    Sonic Live Action Movie Thread (Read OP for topic rules)

    What is interesting, this many years from its beginnings, CGI characters (much less so non-animal depictions) really still look much less realistic than hand animated characters!! I am sure there is some sort of neuropsychological explanation for it, as well as aesthetic: Whether it is Roger Rabbit or Space Jam, the integration between the characters and filmed content is basically perfect and feels very natural to the mind and emotions!

    Pokémon Sword & Shield (2019)

    Logical/somewhat reliable rumors are indicating that this may be revealed before the end of the month, possibly even next week..!! I would say that i am bumping this thread more for the convenience of someone else not having to go so many pages back to find it once there is a reveal!

    Think we'll get two Sonic games in 2019?

    There is at least the abstract possibility of new DLC for Mania! This is highly speculative, but perhaps slightly less so due to the unexpected new episode that appeared recently! Adventures is not canon to the game's story, but it seems to at least include characters that are featured, or will eventually be featured, within the growing world of what Sonic Mania is! Theoretically it would include two or three zones** and Amy would be introduced as a playable character specifically in those zones, alongside the others. While that would on the surface be dissapointing, it would allow Mania Team to skip reverse bug testing the character dynamics within all of the previous zones, and of course, the mod community can figure out how to code Amy into the original run of zones without any resulting bugs being Mania Team's responsibility!! ** Note: I do not think these would necessarily include any newly created zones but for perhaps a closing single act, but one or two could be new returning zones! At first it felt more likely that they would wait to introduce Amy until the next game, but to do so in Mania would allow players to sort of give feedback about whether her gameplay is the best it could be, and they can fine tune it before the next full 2D game! Where this year's larger DLC and new physial release happened mid-year, perhaps this one would probably be near the end of next year!

    Team Sonic Racing OST - "Sand Road"

    Yes; hopefully there are some elements working in favor of its inclusion; mainly that Mania and Plus are such recent and huge highlights in the series' history, and then adding to that how Studiopolis is one of the main signature zones of the game! Maybe if the idea of mixing zones does happen there will be some of this too!

    Sonic Live Action Movie Thread (Read OP for topic rules)

    Thankfully, it will have, and is surely already having, the effect of dramatically increasing an already high level of appreciation for and of all of the unique and amazing work that Sonic animators, in all mediums, have done over the years!! To see something so unpleasant and misguided, is able to newly highlight how well various animators and teams have excelled at envisioning and bringing to life both the main world of Sonic (including animation within the actual games), and also the various hybrid worlds of the spinoff animation series!

    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!
  11. expansivelovestories

    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 - 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!
