  1. I'm not a fan of SatAM to begin with but that teaser is really not selling me on the idea. The animation's too smooth in some ways and too jerky in others, and the characters squish and distort in unpleasant ways. Even if the plan to up the polish for the actual episodes this isn't enough for me to believe they can pull it off. The poster looks better, but a single static image doesn't say much about how a full animation is going to turn out. And I get that the main goal is to appeal to fans of the original but the teaser doesn't do much to draw in people who aren't still obsessed with this particular 25 year old children's cartoon. ...also wouldn't "3eason" be better than "sea3on"? "Threeson" vs "seathreeon"? I mean it's still pretty bad either way but...
  2. There probably isn't a one-button solution to this, but you could just use the magic wand tool and replace each color. A bit tedious but it'd get the job done.
  3. i'm fuckin rolling

    i got into a minor spat with someone on another board, guy says sonic games should be open world and posts a picture as an example, i say that picture's not open world, just a wider path, he ends up calling me a troll, the usual shit, but then i realize

    it's my fuckin picture. it's one of my shitty old photoshops pointing out how restrictive generations/the boost formula's level design is, from like 7 years ago

    dude has been trying to explain the picture to the guy who made it

      even assuming that bottom pic of planet wisp was an open world example...it's kind of a boring example to use.

      if you're going to make an argument for how cool an open world sonic game can be, you'd want to use an example where the landscape / environment shown has a fair amount of interesting stuff going on in them:




      that planet wisp screenshot has some uneven terrain and a big cliff up ahead, which is alright, but there isn't much to say about it...

  4. someone teach sonic the spirit bomb so that his friends can Be Useful

      He tried to get to King Kai but he kept falling from the Snake Way because he ran so fast.

  5. It's time for Sonic Team to do the right thing and get rid of every single Sonic character. The next game will just be an empty GHZ, and you can move the camera to look at the different flowers.
  6. On paper, sure. But the problem is that the characters are already running in the negatives for a lot of people, and simply being harmless doesn't cancel that out. I really don't buy the idea that critics/casual fans/whoever else gives a shit about Sonic but isn't part of the hardcore fanbase can't be convinced that other characters are worth it. Some characters may be too poisoned or too poorly made in the first place to be worth the effort, but for most, you just have to actually find a way to make them appealing. Fix their gameplay, fix their writing, get them a decent VA with decent voice direction and you can win most people over eventually. Of course, that's where the real problem starts, because Sonic Team honestly just sucks at Sonic, and they struggle to get anything right anymore. And when you're struggling to keep the series afloat and counter years of debasement of your main characters, you simply don't have the resources to try to fix things that are ultimately optional.
  7. Alright here's the gist of the story for anyone who can't be bothered to track it down: Also (very minor non-story spoilers)
  8. I doubt many people are going to be too down on whoever shows up in Crash Kart because not as many people have preexisting feelings about those characters.
  9. Doesn't seem like anyone's uploaded a full story playthrough yet but from what I have seen, every character is super fucking suspicious of Dodon Pa right from the start so I'm hoping the twist is that there is no twist and he really is just some rich asshole getting his kicks watching people race and fight each other.
  10. He sounds like a dork, which fits my definition for sounding like Silver well enough.
  11. Man, if you think there's a lot of pixel art games out there, just wait until you see how many textured polygon art games there are! Personally I think complaining about pixel art, as a general "thing", is ludicrous. From the very start, talking about "the" pixel art style is incorrect. There's as many different pixel art styles as there are for any other medium; Mega Man 1 doesn't look like Owlboy, Street Fighter 2 doesn't look like Celeste, even Sonic 1 doesn't look like Sonic Advance. Trying to group them all into a single style is, as I teased above, like trying to group all polygonal game art as one style. And while there may be trends within pixel art that are overused, there's way too much variety to justify writing off the medium entirely.
  12. Personally I've found that it's very easy to make anything sound bad if you break it down the "right" way.
  13. Also the context of the series it's taking place in, and the intent behind the writing. I'm not interested in getting deep into an argument over Star Wars as I'm not even a fan of it but that really was not an honest appraisal of the movies from what I've seen of them.
  14. This feels like a really dishonest reframing of the movies relying more on provoking an emotional reaction than anything.
