Sonic Lost World Announced

Recommended Posts

I'm not saying there won't be any CGI. We've only seen 1 cutscene, after all. I'm just saying we might or we might not. Just don't get your hopes too high.

It's funny how 10 years ago there was literally a TON of CGI cutscenes in Sonic games despite the technology being inferior to what we have now (it was also more expensive to produce those than now).

The only game I remember having more than around 2 is Heroes and Shadow the Hedgehog, and those scenes weren't particularly fun to watch either.

 

I will admit that Shadow the Hedgehog had some damn good looking CG though.

'06 had about...four/five, I think? All three of the hedgehog's intros was in CGI, and I'm almost certain the last story had at least one.

 

EDIT: Basically they just use CGI for the most important cutscenes, which makes sense. For example, in Riders it was the opening, the ending (the last story's ending, to be specific), and the cutscene where the Sky Babylon or whatever it was called rose from the ground.

 

...

 

Now I'm imagining the pre-Time Eater cutscene in CGI. *sobs*

Riders 1 had some as well

Quite honestly....

 

I don't give a fuck about CGI in games. Save that time for making a Sonic movie or a short like Night of the Werehog. CGI in games has always been pretty stupid for me because most of the time the stuff you do see in CGI you can't even do in-game...

 

I don't see why this is such a deal breaker in a SONIC game. Not like we are playing Metal Gear here.

 

Man I couldn't care less about CG. Y'know what I wanna see? In-engine cutscenes that transition smoothly into gameplay. Sorta like this.

 

Same here...I think CGI takes away from the immersion into a game sometimes because the CGI can be polarizing toward the game. The Unleashed opening is a good example....because the game didn't live up to the opening cinematic. 

 

Now if its well balanced CGI and it was in the game anyway...all fine and dandy...pretty thing to look at! Yay! But I don't see how this effects the overall quality of the game or why it matters.

Why can't we have great-looking in-game cutscenes with smooth gameplay transitions along with a few amazing looking CG scenes?

And there nothing wrong with that, but at the same time I don't see why is such a IMPORTANT MATTER that effects the overall enjoyment of the game. Most of the time a game that has pretty looking CGI is trying to compensate for something.

 

I don't care if we have both....what I saying is that there no NEED to have both...I'm not playing a Sonic game to look at pretty backgrounds and scenes that I can't even play. I'd much rather they focus all that energy making a Sonic "Advent Children" movie which would be far more awesome than 30 seconds or more CGI that doesn't matter.

I never said it was a major factor of enjoyment, I just think it's something nice to have. I'll still enjoy Lost World a lot if it has no CG but I will miss having said CG.

What is with this stigma that if its not needed, that it just shouldn't be there? 

 

 

I don't remember anyone saying CG cutscenes are a necessity, or are a vital part of a game's visual experience but something are simply nice to have and look at. Can we have something that's simply pretty to look at? I mean god people, I know some don't care but some do and I don't like the seemingly dismissive attitude towards the people that do care.

Well like in Dio's case I just don't care myself. But there are people blowing this out of proportion making it sound like some sort of tragic drama that there is no CGI in the game...and I mean hell we don't even know that for sure 100% so the baseless assumptions is just stirring a pot that doesn't need to be stirred. Its that simple.

What is this stigma that I have to acquiesce to every demand that doesn't explicitly contradict what I want?

I don't want it. You might want it. You're allowed to want it. That doesn't mean I have to give the slightest of shits about it.

What is with this stigma that, if you say something as simple as "I don't particularly care about this aspect of the games to the point where it's a dealbreaker, but I'm not asking for it to NOT be included", you're asking for it to never happen again, ever?

 

EDIT: I was too slow and Dio said it better anyway, dammit. :U

Ok, no one actually did say that and I'll admit I made an assumption off nothing, but nobody but Artfenix was really making a big deal out of CG cutscenes, and even then its less "NO CG CUTSCENES, RUINED FOREVER" and more "I kinda wish they'd have more CG cutscences".

 

Yet, most of the replies since then just seem to be exaggerating it to monumental proportions. We just want more CG cut-scenes people, no one said the game is gonna be terrible without it. :P

A playable demo with new levels and a new trailer + screenshots will be at Gamescom next week: http://blogs.sega.com/2013/08/15/join-us-at-gamescom-2013-play-games-win-swag/

 

The demo can be found at the Nintendo booth. I'll be going there, I might record some footage with my phone if possible. If I do, you'll all be able to complain about how I don't have steady hands. =P

 

At the very least I'll post my impressions on Sonic Retro.

'A minty new trailer' deadly six or meet the characters trailer also If they are saying new levels then I guess there will be either from sonic boom's event or a silent forest act 1 and frozen factory snow level on Wii U

10 bucks its going to be the levels present at sonic boom aka for the 3DS frozen factory 1 and desert ruins 1. Probably a trailer on the chaos emeralds. and screens

The blog post specifically says that the levels are new and Sonic games had new demos at Gamescom in previous years. You're going to owe me ten bucks.
