  1. Anyone up for racing online in Crash Team Racing on Switch?

  2. Hey everyone! I wrote my own review of Team Sonic Racing on Switch, come have a look! :)


  3. How's everyone doing? :)

      I don't post here much these days. Nice seeing folks from years ago still post here. Hope you've all been well. :)

    4. TheOcelot


      Good, thanks. How about yourself?

      @TheOcelot Not too bad. Went to the Royal Ontario Museum this past week and found Pingu's cousin:



      Other than that I've been playing more of Super Mario Odyssey, just 100% New Donk City finally! :D I'm in the post game BTW. Finally I'm just looking forward to E3! :) I've been watching Vinny and Joel's reactions to the prior conferences and they are a HOOT!








      You? :)

  4. Honestly I'd be TOTALLY down to have the Sonic Mania team make a "what if" Saturn-style 3D Sonic (that's still the classic era since Saturn predates Adventure of course). It'd be the best way to mix a minimalist style while allowing the team to make a great game. And it'd be a cheap download-only title like Sonic Mania at around $20. There's a lot of potential here.

    1. PaddyFancy


      As long as it doesn't look like Sonic Xtreme.

    2. Hero of Legend

      I would think it could be Sonic World-based. That'd make the most sense.

    3. TheOcelot


      Team Mania could perhaps be the team to design a full 3d game which perfectly compliments the 2d classics, which is something Sonic Team have never been able to achieve.

      If the special stages are anything to go by...uh, I'd rather they not. 

    5. Ferno


      @TheOcelot tbh that seems like such a holy-grail type thing that I'm not even sure Sonic Team would let them near that concept out of pride that they could try it themselves (again) someday

      If anything we'll just get Mania's 2 - 10.

    6. JezMM


      Eh, honestly we haven't had enough of what they're good at yet for my liking.  I'd rather they stick to 2D for the time being.  "Classic Sonic in 3D" is still a very rough concept that fans still haven't managed to crack how to make good level design for yet.  I have no reason Team Mania would be automatically good at this just because they're so good at 2D Sonic.

    7. Blue Blood

      @JezMMSonic in 3D is a very rough concept that SEGA still haven't managed to crack.

    8. Penny


      i find it hard to imagine the mania team making 3D sonic any worse than sonic team have, considering ST's track record

    9. JezMM


      I so often see people wanting the Mania team to do stuff like remake Sonic Adventure (under the assumption that their skills in remaking classic Sonic game engines are somehow interchangeable for any game ever) that I'm not sure the fanbase could survive quite so many minds being blown as there would be if the Mania team put out a mediocre 3D Sonic game

    10. Mil-O-Lantern


      If Sega was willing to throw 3D Sonic to a studio with no game to their credit and allow them to make a J&D clone with the Sonic name slapped on top of it (and this was before Sega themselves started meddling in the project), then I don't see why letting Team Mania (supported with the proper staff/resources) taking a shot a 3D Classic Sonic (or Nintendo, or any other team/studio who have a consistent track record of solid games to their credit) is so much of an issue.

      There are some valid concerns to raise about designing a Sonic game in a 3D space but I honestly believe most of the "Sonic hasn't/doesn't work in 3D" narrative is either built upon conjecture or doesn't address the fact that nearly every 3D Sonic game over the past twenty years has produced by the same studio; whereas even 2D Sonic has at least changed hands a couple of times over the years (Ancient, Aspect, Dimps, Backbone, Sanzaru, Taxman and co.). But that seems to be ignored in favor of talking about 3D Sonic game design as some mythical unicorn hardly anyone can comprehend and virtually any developer out there should be questioned as being inherently unqualified to make a 3D Sonic game.


    11. Wraith


      the mania team is made mostly of indie developers that have been working on 2D games their entire lives so a 3D game from them at all is a ways off, let alone a good one

    12. JezMM


      To be fair, Big Red Button wasn't "a studio with no game to their credit", it was comprised of a lot of ex-employees from reputable game studios.

    13. Mil-O-Lantern


      I'm talking about works published by the studio as a whole, rather than the resumes of certain staff in the company. In the former context, BRB was practically a fledgling developer when they started producing RoL.

      That clarification about the background of BRB's staff also directly correlates into what I'm talking about in regards to the way people talk about 3D Sonic as some impossible aura nobody can address; when Rise of Lyric was discovered to be a trainwreck, people were proclaiming how "even Naughty Dog developers can't make a good [3D] Sonic game".

    14. E-122-Psi


      I did like the aesthetics of Mania's special stages, though if they can make a working engine for a full 3D game is another thing. Something like the concept of Sonic Jam's hub world would be interesting to expand upon. I wouldn't be that upset if they stuck to "2D with odd bits of 3D at times" like in Mania though.

  5. Fun Fact: Mike Pollock voiced in Go Play: Circus Star for Wii!

      I cannot hear this without thinking of dr. Eggman.

  6. That odd feeling of when you realize that Don Bluth's Anastasia is more or less a Disney Princess now. I'd legit love to see Disney bring back Bartok in a TV show at least with Hank Azaria back as him, and maybe bring Zozi back with Kelsey Grammar voicing him as well.

    1. Hero of Legend

      Hero of Legend

      Oh and Krysta from Ferngully is also a Disney Princess now. Fuck it, give me a Bartok and Batty Koda crossover. The guy who does Genie now does a good enough Robin Williams voice, so he could be Batty. Funny enough, if they got Dan Castellaneta back to be Robin's double for Batty, then Dan and Hank would be two Simpsons voices together here... which BTW is now owned by Disney also.

      Disney owns the WORLD!

    2. Blue Wisp

      Blue Wisp

      ripley and the xenomorph is a disney princess too

  7. Anyone here that's in NA still have their Yooka-Laylee Switch code from the KS unused?

  8. Okay friends, it's go time; Vegito or Gogeta?

    1. Dee Dude

      Dee Dude


      Seriously though, tough choice. We barely get to see Gogeta in canon works and we’ve have seen Vegito a fair amount of times..but then again they reconed that time limit bs...

    2. Hero of Legend

      Hero of Legend

      Yeah and also, what WOULD A Potara fusion of Goten and Trunks be? That hasn't been in DB Heroes yet has it, yet everything else imaginable has. :P

      Also, do we know if both Super Vegito and Super Gogeta are SS2? It's usually hard to distinguish between SS1 and SS2. I always notice SS2 is shiner, more pointy, and the presence of electricity.

    3. Dee Dude

      Dee Dude

      I’m shocked they haven’t done that possibility/what if yet.

      The best pic I’ve seen of a Gotenks potara version is this:


      Yeah, I want to see “Trunkten” and many more what if fusions/transformations/absorbs.

      But nah, we need more SSJ3/SSGSS Broly and Bardock amirite?

      As for Gogeta? That is pretty tough to distinguish them from SSJ1 & 2, they already have a single hair bang which is a trait of 2 so I guess the only noticeable difference would be the lighting sparks.

      Vegito? Nah he’s easy, he has more than one hair bang so he ain’t SSj2.

    4. DiamondX


      Neither Gogeta or Vegito are SSJ2 but in Xenoverse, Vegito was supposed to have SSJ2, seen in a unused line:

      "Guess I'm Super Saiyan 2 now."

    5. Zaysho


      I like Gogeta. Especially liked his Super Saiyan 4 design.

      Vegetto's cool, too and bringing him back in the Black arc was hype (not sure I like how Super explained how Potara fusion works when it was perfectly fine for decades, but whatever), but I always liked the fusion dance clothing design a bit more.

    6. DiamondX


      I wouldn't say "Buu's body makes Vegetto unfuse" is better than the one hour limit.

      It even makes sense in the Buu Saga since we don't know exactly how long they fought for.

    7. Zaysho


      I honestly saw nothing wrong with it being permanent and inadvertently being undone by Buu, just means Buu could counteract the Kaioshin's magic. Super went out of the way to unfuse Kibitoshin with Namekian Dragon Balls, which I thought they could have just extended to Vegetto if he were to return.

      I also think it's a little too convenient for them to say the time limit expired right when Vegetto was absorbed. It undermines how desperate Goku and Vegeta are if they're willing to go through with something permanent (even if it can be potentially undone down the line, I'd rather it be something they have to deal with until they can undo it) AND the god powers completely fizzle it out like SSJ4 did to Gogeta (actually this is also why I like fusion dance, it means there's more urgency when they can't stay together for very long). It kinda makes Potara fusion seem more useless or like it was a mistake.

    8. NikoS


      Gogeta, ‘cause Big Bang Kamehameha reasons...

  9. Gotta say, Liam O'Brien is amazing as Infinite. He's also Zazz which blew my mind when looking him up.

    1. Kiah


      Wow really? He really has some range! I loved both Zazz and Infinite’s voices so consider me deeply impressed!

  10. To anyone with Forces on Switch, do you occasionally see white lines in cutscenes for like a frame like this?:


    Not sure if it's my copy, Switch, or just something the game does as a design flaw. Only happens in the pre-recorded ones (avatar ones have to be in-game).

    1. Dejimon11


      I hadn't notice. I'll look at the footage I recorded and let you know

    2. Hero of Legend

      Hero of Legend

      Please do. I did get one snap of a YT recording of that scene again:


      It seems most common in that scene, but I saw it in the first scene of Knuckles and the others in the base also. It's random so it's not guaranteed in any scene.

    3. Dejimon11


      Nope havnet seen it. But for some reason visually the game looks bad when recording it and uploading it onto youtube. It's not just me who has this problem I was speaking to NTom about this as well and ive seen other youtube videos with it as well

    4. Hero of Legend

      Hero of Legend

      Was NTom referring to the compression or the white lines?

    5. Dejimon11
  11. If I'm honest, I've never liked how Classic Sonic now is canonically light blue. It's weird too since in the signpost goals in Forces, he's an Adventure-era-like blue:


    That looks SO much better, such a shame. Even Ohshima draws him a darker blue on twitter (sans his Mania and Forces promo pics), so I don't get it.

    Hell, this example Ohshima posted a while back, is actually my fav ever design of him:

    If Sonic ever got a reboot, make him look like this! He's got that Adventure 'tude that I've always loved. And who else but Ohshima can draw his quills from the side and do it right? :P

    1. Ferno



      no more reboots

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      It's because that's the colour that SEGA settled on for the style sheets that date back to the Saturn era. He's light blue and his shoes and almost pink. I don't like it either.

    3. Ferno


      also wow he's still dead-set on those fangs after all these years

  12. I never would have guessed Ohtani was a Disney fan:

      Even better? Wreck it Ralph. Foreshadowing much? :P

  13. Here you go my friends, a Happy Eggman reaction pic from Sonic Forces (Switch) caught with Elgato HD60, free of charge. :)

    2. Dejimon11


      Was the cut mustache even in the final version of the game?

    3. Hero of Legend

      Hero of Legend

      It's odd though that Switch cutscenes are compressed like they're YouTube videos. But MAYBE the ones with the avatar aren't since those show the avatar as your custom one.

  15. Got a large album of HQ PNG Sonic Forces Switch screenshots in docked mode! Have a peek in the link! Remember to download the "Original (1280 x 720)" pics for proper uncompressed pics! https://www.flickr.com/photos/goldmetalsonic/sets/72157662882228028/with/38541419202/

  16. Got Forces on Switch yesterday! Surprisingly... good! The port's also very sound, you'd almost think it was a Switch game first and "remastered" on PS4 and XBO. I'll have a review up soon enough. For now, check out my review for Breath of the Wild that I just put up yesterday also! https://goldmetalsonic.wordpress.com/2017/11/17/the-legend-of-zelda-breath-of-the-wild-switch-review/

      More like a PS4 game with a water-down version for the Switch ;)

    2. Hero of Legend

      Hero of Legend

      I dunno, looks too good for a downport. Took me by surprise. Cutscenes do look compressed though. Pre-recorded maybe? But the avatar is custom in them sooo...

    3. TheOcelot


      Glad it looks good on Switch and it should look good, lets be honest. Even with the Switch being slightly less powerful than Xb1 & PS4 there's no excuse for Sonic Team not to make the Switch version look and play as good as it can.

    4. Hero of Legend

      Hero of Legend

      Oh for sure, especially since they confirmed that they made a Switch version a priority, even before even knowing what the system would even be!

      It's a fine starting point for future games, ports and exclusives. The fact it's already got the Hedgehog Engine 2 fully brought over is really welcoming.

      Wonder if the next Olympic title will use HE2? :thinking:

      ""you'd almost think it was a Switch game first and "remastered" on PS4 and XBO.""

      You really would never think that.

    6. KHCast


      Umm...you put them side by side, and it's clear that the switch version was not the main version. Or makes the other versions looks like ports of it.

  17. Big head's up: The Shadow costume DLC is free on the Switch eShop (and likely on other systems), BUT, it says it's only available until Nov 20th. However, you can download it right now with or without the game. At least on Switch directly from the eShop, I did this myself. Make sure you check your respective digital shops to grab it in case this is so on there also.

    1. Zaysho


      Huh, that's weird. I wonder why it's limited?

  18. Is Episode Shadow on Switch in NA and available to both physical and digital buyers?

    1. Ryannumber1Scarer


      It is in the UK, so I'd imagine so.

      meanwhile, UK PSN doesn't have Episode Shadow for some reason.

    2. Dee Dude

      Dee Dude

      Yep, just downloaded it.

      Still don't have a physical copy though.

      EDIT: Oh, you mean Switch? Never mind, not sure.

    3. DiamondX


      @Ryannumber1gamer Dude it's not just the UK which doesn't have Episode Shadow on the PS4.

      It's the entire Europe which doesn't.

  19. One comment on amiibo for Odyssey; while the game will acknowledge most amiibo by name (got Mewtwo and Kirby to show), Sonic will only show as "lovely", alongside Skylanders DK. :(

  20. Anyone here join ResetEra? You can find me there under the same name. Drop on by when you're able, we don't bite! :)

    1. Mando-Whirl-Wind


      I’ve considered joining for the board gaming thread, never got in the mood to deal with applying for gaf pre mess. I do lurk though for video game info. Love board gaming, but don’t have the friends or a close enough gaming store 

    2. DiamondX


      I want to join, but apparently my e-mail adress was banned? Dunno why. I didn't have a NeoGAF account.

    3. FaultyWindmill


      I just tried and had the same issue as Ryan. Never had ties to NeoGAF and I think my visits per year are in single digits.

    4. Marcello


      You need a non-free email address.

    5. DiamondX


      @Joy I'm Diamond lol.

    6. FaultyWindmill


      @Ryannumber2Scarer Did you end up making a paid email?

    7. DiamondX


      Nope. Not gonna do it now.

    8. FaultyWindmill


      I wound up trying my university email address and it worked! If you've got anything like that then you should be good if you still wanted to try it!

    9. DiamondX


      I'm not at university yet. Some years younger than that.

  21. So, without spoilers, what's the verdict on Forces from those who've played/seen it all?

    1. Diogenes
    2. Vertical Snoop [D.K.]
    3. mayday2592


      Extremely disappointing, I'm seriously baffled  by how much a step back this game is from Generations.

    4. DiamondX


      Not horrible, but not great.

      Sonic Forces is a game with many interesting ideas but mostly fails to execute them all correctly. There are things about it that are genuinely good and are executed well, but I feel the bad/meh parts mostly overshadow it and those genuinely good moments aren't enough to to help the game.


      Not good, not bad. In the middle. Leans a bit more towards good than bad if I'm forced to choose a side, personally, but it definitely isn't a game Sonic fans deserve after waiting so many years. We deserve better. 

    11. Dejimon11


      It's decent not great or terrible just really ok. Definitely not the game we've been waiting for

      @Depression Kong Hey, can we not make suicide jokes? It's tasteless and we don't allow them here.

  22. The menu shows 3 stages, are the other two select-able or is it locked to Modern Green Hill only?
