Sonic Lost World Announced

Recommended Posts

Finally, some more coverage on the portable version.

 

I was worried that Windy Hill was going to be the only 3D stage, due to it having the only 3D stages shown in the convention demos, but now I can gladly put those worries to rest.

 

The RC toys look really neat. Tney seem to work like Murfy in Rayman Legends Wii U. Just one thing, if the toys can only be used to help Sonic in the Wii U version, what will non-Wii U owners do with them? They'll probably just be virtual collectables.

 

That theme music is dandy, as well.

Just because the Deadly Six did a thing in a cutscene doesn't mean we'll have a better story. Best not to make assumptions. 

 

No Sonic game can't be more bland story wise than Generations anyway, so.

But it DOES though. Eggman/Orbot/Cubot don't look any diffrent than they did in those games.

Those are CHARACTERS. The style applies to the places, not the characters. I mean, the Deadly six share the same overly cartoony toyish style but Sonic characters are the same as they have always been.

Well thats just completely awesome!!! I am quite sure the story will be better then, or at least not as bare-bones as Colors, but something tells me itll be a similar type of story, just with a bit more of...well.. story : P  Awesome to see Cubot and Orbot back!!! hope they stay for future games.

 

Zavok has my respect now xD Everyone else seem fine and work as a team, but Zavok is just badass! mind-controlling Eggmans badniks, the question is: why didnt he mind-control Orbot and Cubot? probably not seen as a threat?

 

Also 3DS connectivity is neat!!! so not only in wii U you can get a co-op with another player with a wiimote, but also a 3DS! Although I want to see what the RC plane did, it just seemed to grab rings, nothing else, well besides the ability of flying XD I hope it has a way of helping Sonic as in transporting him, Shooting. SOMETHING!

Well probably, but I was more saying to not expect anything better then Colours just because the Deadly Six were shown doing something cool in a cutscene.

The cutscene is pretty cool but it would look MUCH better if it had Unleashed-Generations style.

 

Unleashed's cutscenes are presented differently to Generations' though.  Unleashed's cutscenes looked gorgeous for sure but Generations' cutscenes look comparatively hideous and rather unfinished looking.  Take the cutscene just before Sonic fights silver for example (16 seconds through):

I refuse to believe this is a well presented, finished cutscene.  There are a lot of fast motions that don't read particularly well due to a lack of motion blur and poorly placed cameras, the cars don't bend or break in any sort of way upon hitting the ground, they just let off some sort of feeble smoke graphic and there's no dust or smoke for when Sonic lands or shoots off for his run.  Barring the animation and the zoomed in shot of Silver it looks ugly for the most part.  And this isn't even an isolated case.  This applies to every cutscene. 

 

Honestly this Lost World cutscene looks way better than any cutscene in Generations barring that one CGI one before the title screen.  Better camera positioning and movements along with actual depth of field and motion blur.  

 

And if this is just another complaint regarding the art style, well the argument's been beaten into the ground to be honest and it's rather tiresome so I don't feel like having it.  That's more a matter of taste if anything and we established long ago that this art style isn't to yours.

Scenario A. Because they're the only robots without built in firepower

 

Scenario B. Their Mind trick only works on creature with limited intelligence. Orbot and Cubot both have more A.I than the average Badnik whose only real programing is to destroy Sonic.

Even so, the cutscene kinda shows that they're atleast making more of an effort then the previous two games. It's okay to act like grumpy old men and make assumptions/complain that the story will be no better then the other games around here but when we see a small ingame cutscene of the game then it's best to not make assumptions or get your hopes up for something better.

Well, I have to say that cutscene was great. Zavok confirmed for badass tier, and we finally see Eggman, along with Orbot and Cubot!   Since you guys really liked those GIFs I made, I have done more for the Deadly Six!   *Gifs*
You are the MAN...

Well Generations had 2D white world bullshit so no wonder the cutscenes look hideous. Scenes before the bosses look pretty good though.

Bue yeah, it's more about the art style so if you don't feel like arguing over this again, it's alright). Neither do I)). Just putting my two cents. I do think that if it had Unleashed style, that cutscenes would have looked MUCH better.
