Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed...!

Recommended Posts

Hmm just wondering but is the PC version going to future 4 player split-screen since that's the second reason for me getting the PC ver.

Just looking at IGN's best of E3 awards, and this game hasn't even been nominated in the Best Racing Game category sad.png

So what? Who cares what IGN says? Why do you even read them? This is the same website that docks points from Sonic games simply because they're Sonic games. They're a corporate shill website where good opinions are sold to the highest bidder. The worst review site on the face of the Earth.

I actually liked the 90 degrees turns... It demanded skill and made the game more challenging.

The Transformed turns and corners look a lot easier and simpler... I hope there are tight turns in other tracks.

There were frustrating corners which you could get sort of stuck in which were deemed too frustrating in the pirate level last time. We want to avoid frustration, but still make challenging levels, and it's a very fine balance. One persons 'challenging' is another persons 'annoying'!

We chose to nurf the difficulty on the Monkeyball track as we also wanted to create a "light to dark" progress through the track order... SMB being thematically bright and breezy means it will be an early track so has to be a less challenging level as they get mildly harder as the game progresses. (ie Golden Axe flight section) I hope that makes sense.

Although I found them difficult at first, I did grow to love the Monkey Ball tracks in the previous game. However I like that the tracks will become progressively darker to match the difficulty this time around.

Ah yes, the pirate level. Where I would eventually figure out how to do the stupid spin turns, only to then manage to overturn on the last lap when I was finally ahead, and get completely stuck and unable to get back in the race and come in last. Just as happy to see the end of that one.

> Split screen on a PC

wat

Yes indeed, have a laptop which can easily handle current games in 1080p so usually when my friends come over(or the opposite) i just connect it to the 40 inch TV(or 2 screens split i.e Portal 2) and play Blur or the other limited amount of splitscreen games that is available on PC.

This game is looking really fantastic and I'm happy that this is one of the 3 games I'm looking forward to this year. E3 totally sucked and has left me with nothing to get excited about, but I'll proudly pick this up day one.

Also it helps that online in the first game was so much fun and I'm onboard as long as you keep making games as good as the first (or better lol).

Amy's new vehicle is much nicer, still think it should have been more original though, same for Sonic's (and Aiai's in the original All-stars racing, don't know if he's in this game though)

Some Eggman gameplay (And finally someone using the bloody drift button!)

[media=]

The amount of people I've seen not touching the drift button was insane, Sumo should put a mandatory tutorial when you first boot your game.

Close race, he was pretty good...although he did drive like a madman most of the time laugh.png

Did I mention that this game moves pretty damn fast for a kart racer? Then again, these are actual vehicle the characters are driving, not karts.

He picked the hardest difficulty available, which apparently increases your speed.

Is that true? I mean the speed thing.

I would prefer the speed to be selectable without being attached to AI difficulty (again, if its true that there are different speeds based on difficulty).

Also, thanks S0L for your answer! Its nice to have you here!
