    well I did make a santa bear for most of my playthough. (i'll post a picture later)
    after finishing the game I went ahead and tried to make Bunnie Rabbot in sonic forces (haven't unlocked all the custom parts yet so I'll likely make a version 2 down the line)

    also I found it very convenient that the bent bunny ear just happens to be the right one and not the left.

    Honestly Sonic Team should also include these promo comics in the Forces game as free DLC that you can unlock to read while in game... considering they do contain meaningful story elements for Forces afterall.  Just seems like a smart move to me.

    Not to mention this:

    Eggman's a lot tougher than he looks. If he hit Infinite that hard, I wouldn't blame him for being so taken back.

    I liked the reference to Eggmanland. Too bad we didn't see anything like that in the actual game...
    In fact, with all these references done right on top of actually finding a way to make Forces' story seem somewhat interesting, why doesn't SEGA just get Ian Flynn to write the stories for the actual games already? He knows what's he's doing.

    So, ignoring whether or not you hate, love, like, or are simply indifferent to the game itself, let's talk and see about the range of customization and seeing just how crazed and wacky endless possibilities are with what you or anyone else has made, while avoiding other content and story spoilers.
    For starters, believe it or not,
    this is actually possible in Sonic Forces. And yes, you can bet it's starting up a trend of sorts.

    kirby1up reacted to mikeblastdude in Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back   
    So, umm, I guess I'll swallow my pride and admit that I bought this game. Here's my personal impression of Bubsy: TWSB.
    First, I'll start with the positive. I feel like I always end up being a Bubsy apologist, but I've got to at least give credit where it's due. The game itself controls just fine, once you get used to how Bubsy handles. The glide now also acts as sort of a double jump as well, which was jarring at first, but it definitely comes in handy. Also, the new pounce move is pretty useful once you get the flow of it.
    Next, the music overall is actually pretty enjoyable. It's nowhere near the level of a good Sonic soundtrack, but, a few of the songs, especially the boss music, I found to be really catchy.
    I suppose that covers the positive, so now I'll talk about what I didn't like about the game. The biggest problem with Bubsy: TWSB is, without a doubt, the game's length. I've put about two hours in myself, so the whole "40 minutes" thing seems a bit exaggerated (although, I was taking my time trying to get as many yarn balls as I could). Either way though, this game is inexcusably short. Also, as has been stated many times, the graphics and level design are both pretty bland. It's not too big of a problem since I was amused enough playing through the levels, but, they definitely do all kind of start to look the same. Also, for better or for worse, this game is way easier than the original Bubsy games. You start each level with nine lives no matter how many you had previously, and there are checkpoints everywhere. With that being said, there's still enough of a challenge to make it satisfying.
    So, overall, I really don't think that Bubsy: TWSB is a bad game like it's being made out to be. It's not great either, though, and I really can't justify the price for how short of a game it is. I don't think I could recommend this game to most people. I personally don't regret buying it though. If you didn't already like Bubsy to begin with, then this game isn't going to change your mind. If, however, you're like me and actually have a fondness for the original Bubsy games from the 16-bit days, and you have extra money to blow on something that isn't going to last you very long, then, and only then, this game might be worth checking out. It was nice seeing an old friend from my childhood again.

    kirby1up reacted to Mauricius in Future mod I planned to make (The Sonic Forces Overhaul mod)   
    This isn't only overambitious, it probably wouldn't even be possible to make. While you could remake levels with more open design if you put enough time and effort into it (and I'm sure some other people would like to help you on that front), most of the stuff you listed would require hacking the executable and reprogramming the whole game in a low-level language, which not many people seem to know how to do. In Generations' case, the only exe hacks I've seen are replacing some stuff to add mod support, enabling the old renderer, increasing shadow resolution and removing the ring limit, so programming a whole Chao Garden system is out of the question. Besides, in the 6 years of Generations modding nobody has even figured how to make Classic Sonic not crash/glitch out when spindashing in 3d, so unless Sonic Team suddenly decided to make Classic properly playable in 3d, you can forget about that idea.
    While it may seem like modders can magically do whatever they want with the game if you don't have experience with modding, making a game is quite a challenge by itself, and modding an existing game is 100 times harder. You should always know what you can and can't do before planning stuff like this, otherwise you could end up with nothing but wasted effort and disappointment.

    Since this is about a fan project, I think it belongs better in Showcase.
    As for my opinion on it...uh...radically different level design + 3D classic Sonic + Chao gardens + Adventure fields with missions and stuff = you're basically making a whole new game at this point (and an ambitious one at that!), and it feels like it would basically require a full team of professional game developers who could be making their own game for profit rather than making a ridiculously elaborate hack/fangame for free.
    To call this overambitious would be quite an understatement.

    considering that the game isn't officially released on pc yet and the fact that experienced modders still need to break though the Denuvo I'd say maybe just focus on 
    and thats assuming you know how to make 3D models,program hit boxes,how to apply textures to 3D models,how to make textures,how to extract the files needed to program in the modded models and I'm pretty theres more knowledge needed that I don't know about.

    This is going to sound just dumb, but I'd say replace the Wispons with the guns from ShadowTH. While that game is an undeniable piece of crap, the one thing it did right was it's weapons. Admit it, you want to tear through Eggman's mechs with a Gatling gun.

    kirby1up reacted to Roger_van_der_weide in Sonic Forces SPOILER Thread   
    Man what a dissapointment.
    A game about Dr. Eggman in charge. So do we get scared citizens worshipping Eggman statues, giant Tv screens of Eggman demanding citizens to do silly things in his honor, an even more extreme version of Mania's Robotnik Tv show? Do we get Robotnik themed circusses, opera's, themeparks? Nope, nope nope.

    People on this thread keep comparing it to SATAM Robotnik but even that's way overshooting it, at least SATam Robotnik sits on an epic throne, feels like the center and beating heart of a terrifying empire, sending out giant armies or robots and battleships out to destroy entire forests.
    What does Forces Eggman even do? Hang around with Cubot and Orbot in Green Hill zone immediatly getting his ass kicked by Classic Sonic hopping by. Great.
    That's the culimination of the concept of Eggman being in control of the world, him being the same dumbass he is in the light hearted filler adventures.
    Except here it feels horribly out of place.
    It's not light hearted silly Sonic, but neither is it Dark Serious Sonic. It's nothing. It's in a meaningless purgatory in the middle.
    Even in Sonic Colors Eggman had more of an evil presence with the Themepark anouncements. This game has the coolest premise ever, why is it so booooooooring??

    I rushed off this crummy Flash movie in 5 days after I was amused with Webber's statement that Big's having vacation during the Forces events. I figured I wouldn't even touch the surface of the actual crazy things Robotnik would be doing as master of the world, but nope, even with rushing everything and having to delete half my jokes I got more out of the concept then Forces ever did. Boo.


    And the story keeps focusing on stupid Mc Guffin nonsense. The writers are practically patting themselves on the back how proud they are that they came up with the great plot twist of "Eggman had 2 power sources" like that's some kind of crazy twist. Yawn. Sonic Adventure Eggman had about 4 or 5 back up plans and never made a big deal about it. Even in Colors, Eggman had 6 or 7 generators, but now him having one back up is supposed to be the great twist? Buzz off.
    Isn't that the type of mundane stuff you should get out of the way with the in-level banter? Sure let Knuckles prattle on about back up generators and other Mc Guffin stuff during the level missions. But keep the cutscenes for cool stuff happening.

    Just like Sonic Lost world there's no flow in the writing. We don't get a transition between Dumb Knuckles/ Guardian Knuckles into him taking the role of Rebellion leader. He just magically is. All we get is the comic and even that one was a "Oh, I suddenly decided to become a leader of a rebellion" out of thin air.
    I hate complaining about this because I'm so happy Knuckles is finally useful in some way. But it's exactly this type of careless "Oh, now just assume THIS is how the characters are supposed to be" quality of wiring that creates my intense distrust and lack of respect in the writing and why the Sonic series is just a pile of brainless meta fanservice these days.

    We don't get to see the world being peaceful and natural before the time skip, so there's no contrast after Eggman took over. It's already broken and corrupted before Eggman's victory, with no advancements afterward. We don't see a heroic tough looking Tails suddenly realizing he's way over his head and break down, he's cowardly right from the start.
    Sonic isn't affected by his "torture". It's just empty meanignless dark banter just like Lost world with it's "Eggman will strangle the Zeti" stuff that never went anywhere. All this "dark dialogue" just feels like troll bait. Get sensetive Sonic fans rioting over nothing.

    And speaking of Zeti, now I still don't know if these guys are still alive, if Zavok has any opinion about him being cloned.
    And there's nothing to say about Infinite. He's just there. Half his screentime is going "Hmpf, you're not worth fighting" and the other half is him getting his ass kicked.

    And Iizuka's statement that he wanted people to think about "Why" Shadow was evil becomes a giant facepalm. Of course everyone's crazy theories end up being a million times better then reality, even the sarcastic and cynical ones.
    I assume we get to see more of Shadow's thoughts in the DLC because the only insight in Shadow's opinions on the matter we get is "Hmpfh." Even Sonic Boom Shadow is a more complex character then Forces Shadow and my mind boggles what an insane statement that is.

    All this talk about that 3d Sonic and Dark Serious Sonic Doesn't work will drive me nuts the coming weeks, this game is neither. It's dull.
    Dull Sonic doesn't work. And yeah, well duh.


    That said, I don't hate the game too much.
    It feels okay to play, like Sonic Boom Fire and Ice. Mostly harmless. Love the music. Level themes are interesting.
    The levels have brief moments of fun gameplay.
    Far as I'm concerned, it isn't a bad game. It doesn't do anything I hate.
    But man, the missed oppurtunities, the wasted potential. That's a giant elephant in the room suffociating this tiny little game that has no chance of even coming close to the impact it should have had.
    If we got this game with the story scope of Sonic Colors 2, I'd be praising this game as a fun little but unimpressive side game. But alas, it just had to take the coolest and most epic premise possible and steal that away from other more worthy games to try and pursue. And man, is it pathetic to see it try to aim for the stars when it can't even hop over a pebble.

    And are you kidding me that the very first Modern Sonic stage we saw of him in the city is actually from the second half of the game? A level resembling a tutorial stage? Seriously?

    It was Donkey Kong who gave him the necessary dance lessons. He owes him a debt of gratitude.
