Sonic Lost World Announced

Recommended Posts

Eagles don't have missiles.

They also not aliens who grant people superpowers either, so your point is? XP

Yes but how could Sonic possibly justify using the symbol of his greatest foe?

With a very special tool called "irony". Edited by ChaosSupremeSonîc

One of the things I really liked in the trailer was how, in the 2D Desert level where he is being chased, we actually see Sonic use his spin-dash up curved walls with seemingly no assistance from a booster. Twice. Bought a smile to my face and actually took me back to chase sequences such as the one in Hydrocity.

 

Now granted, there was a silly in between those two moments, but still!

I hope the story is good first and foremost. God I hope they nail the gravity and physics down in this game. It could be amazing if they do it right...

 

Where is this other trailer I am hearing about?

To be honest, my favorite part of the trailer was showing the desert level as if Sonic is not in a floating world. I mean, if you want to be technical, Lost Hex is not even a world; more like a spherical floating island of sorts.

 

Oh. My. God.

 

Sonic Lost World is really SONIC & KNUCKLES 2 IN DISGUISE. Now I know what Iizuka meant when he said bringing "Classic" back.

So, not for reupload...I guess that means I can't post the video on Youtube?

Look at this kid, worried about what may happen if he uploads a video Sega doesn't want him to upload! I laugh in the face of danger!

*Would actually be too scared to upload it*

So you're saying it is not bad to upload such a video?

I was half joking. You can upload it if you want, probably the worst thing that could happen is Sega taking down the video, but I myself wouldn't risk it. Especially since someone on another Sonic fan forum has already done so, wink wink nudge nudge.

I see. Well, I uploaded the video earlier, but I took it down because of the "reupload" thing, and I am not sure if I'm going to upload it again.

Stream people say if you upload it to youtube you'll get a strike and banned from the forums if they find out you're here as a member, at least that's what they said in the feed before showing it.

Well thanks for the notification, lady! I guess I won't reupload the vid after all.

 

As for the video itself, I think it was great. I loved what I saw in that video.

LOL. To be honest though I think that the story in Lost World will not be that bad.

 

Actually what i meant is the most important thing in the Sonic series is the gameplay, so wanting a good story as 1st priority is wrong.

I think with any game, wanting a good story over gameplay is wrong. Might as well just read a book or watch a movie.

Well what about Phoenix Wright? I'm pretty sure you'll agree those games need a great story to be engaging.

It's completely illogical to assume that prioritization of different elements of a medium somehow means you only seek the most prioritized thing and don't want anything else out of it, thus one who prioritizes story over gameplay should go away and read a book or watch a movie because "they only want story." 

 

Quote me saying that please, I will wait here. It's just as completely illogical to assume that I assumed so when I never said that. Videogaming is first and foremost INTERACTIVE entertainment. A story can immerse you but if the gameplay doesn't offer the core experience, you either become a mere spectator or the gameplay will break that immersion that a great story could give you.

 

Ladies and gentlemen, contender for Game of the Year 2013 - The Last of Us

I do. I love Phoenix Wright (and the gameplay, although apparently simple, suits the story as it should) as well as other story-driven games like Walking Dead or Heavy Rain, but if the gameplay is not even, well, playable, why should I bother to, well, play? I would rather just YouTube cutscenes of those games instead.

 

Oh yes, that's right! I did that, for Sonic Free Riders (which the story wasn't all that either but still proves my point, because what if it had been?).

 

Edit: Another contender for GOTY 2013 that, while it contains one of the greatest stories I have ever seen in gaming, ended up giving gameplay a backseat is Bioshock: Infinite. I love that game and I would play it all over again, but using the same fucking, cheap life ghost boss on 3 separate occasions with no variation whatsoever, and a lack of encouragement for varied weapon and vigor gameplay really hold me back from calling it a masterpiece.

Things do not have to be stated forwardly to be true. That is the inherent implication of you saying that those who prioritize story over gameplay should go read a book, because otherwise that wouldn't have made any sense.

 

No seriously. For the statement "If you want story over gameplay, you are wrong and should go read a book" to make sense, a context has to be established as true that must say that prioritization of different elements in a medium means that a person seeks the most prioritized thing at the expense of everything else about that medium. Hence, people who want gameplay above story play games because that is "the most important thing," and those who want story to be "the most important thing" should instead read a book. 

 

Clearly this is bollocks. People who want better story in games- or even those who are most concerned about the story in a particular game- do not only want story as part of the experience and thus would not be more satisfied by indulging in a book. They want to indulge in the gameplay too by mere fact of expressing interest in the game in the first place. They just want different things out of it as a whole, which is okay, and does not warrant the shitty sentiment of anyone telling them that they should stop looking forward to a game and do something else instead.

 

So not only is it illogical to tell someone who prioritizes story over gameplay that they should not indulge in the game, it's a crap thing to do in general.
