Debugger working with Sonic Team who happens to be a /v/tard here, waiting for a plane, jetlagged to hell, killing some time on my laptop. Will take a few questions if you guys want.

Better post the token insider info first...

>Sonic Team working on 25th Anniversary game, internal title is just "Sega Sonic 25", but this has recently been changed to "Digital Sonic 25"
>Game is a "Celebration of Sega as a whole", which is basically Sonic Generations 2 without the boost stuff and has Sonic going through worlds from Segas past a bit like SASRT
>There's a couple of side projects
>3/4s of the Lost World team is working on Digital Sonic 25, but the team itself is much larger, taking notes from lots of figureheads from Segas past, there's a number of others working on 2 other projects
>"Sonic Runners" is a mobile game with a bit of pay2win in there, I haven't worked on it personally, but from what I've heard they're going for addictive fast paced platforming
>There's an exclusive Wii U title that's currently on hold as Sega have shifted the team to working on Digital Sonic 25 as they want it finished by this year to be polished for the anniversary
>The exclusive Wii U title is just an extended port of Generations and Colors, billed as "Sonic Colors Generation", with a bunch of extra missions and stuff. The core game is for the most part the same, warts and all
>>
They need to stop celebrating Sonic's history already.

He had a good 3 and a half years and 20 plus years of absolute shit. They should be pretending the last 20 years never happened, not celebrating it.
>>
>>252776382
Not a huge fan of the sound of Digital Sonic 25... why would Sonic be going into other Sega worlds? Meh let's just see what happens anyway.
>>
>>252776980
>They need to stop celebrating Sonic's history already.
Tell me about it. Generations was meh at best and Colours, which is the only good Sonic game of the last 10 years, is confined to a sub HD console
>>
>>252777169
>confined to a sub HD console
But Anon, I can play it 1080p 60FPS on my PC.
>>
>>252776382

Why does Sega keep doing these anniversary celebration games for Sonic? You don't see these kinds of games being made for other franchises.
>>
>>252777071

The story is pretty flimsy.

>Eggman kidnaps Tails
>Sonic goes through a Green Hill Zone level to get to Eggman
>Gets kidnapped himself
>Gets thrown in to a Digital world created by Eggman with the rule that he's "trapped forever" unless he can break the program
>Has to go through (so far) 11 worlds from the likes of Shinobi, Phantasy Star, all the token Master System/Genesis games finding a way to break the program
>Eventually gets free with the power of some kind of digital chaos emeralds and breaks the program
>Fights Eggman in Eggman Land, which he's rebuilt in Sonics absence

It's Segas 25th anniversary game, not Sonics
>>
I believe you because no one would lie about being with such a now-shitty company.

Is the 25 game looking good?
>>
>new Generations
>console only
But why would you do this
>>
>>252777294

It's being handled as a Sega Anniversary, and Sonic is Segas mascot, so he's going through all the worlds from Segas golden age. There's a Golden Axe world which looks pretty stellar
>>
>>252776382
When the fuck are we getting a full on console 2d main series game? Sega spends all this fucking effort trying to make Sonic NEW and FRESH and fails every time. Has it ever fucking occurred to them to just try doing what made Sonic so great to begin with?
>>
>>252776382
>Sonic Generations 2 without the boost stuff
FAAAAAAKE

>>252777442

Digital Sonic 25 is so far being worked on for PS4/Xbone, with an altered version for the Wii U. PC release isn't confirmed, but there's the token outsourced 3DS version. No Vita version.

question: do they still celebrate sonic 06 as if it was actually something decent?
>>
>>252777404
Is Wii U cut out from the Anniversary one? Better ask this now so I can just get over it already.
>>
>>252777501

They tried this with Sonic 4 and it failed monumentally. Unless they get the physics sorted (which, to be fair, Lost World was a great leap in the right direction) a 2D game is always going to play horribly

Ahh, I get it now, it's a Sega anniversary game. Looking forward to the final battle in Eggmanland, that was my favourite all time stage from Sonic's history, hopefully it's just as challenging as it was in Unleashed.

Any idea what platforms it'll be on?

I KNEW someone would fucking say Sonic 4 I FUCKING KNEW IT. IT DOESN'T COUNT. It makes me so fucking mad knowing they're probably blaming the concept for failing instead of the piece of shit game by itself that they put negative levels of effort into. Sonic 4 was an abysmal piece of shit in every fucking way possible, I swear to god they were deliberately trying to make it bad. We need a PROPER 2D GAME on consoles that doesn't have shit physics, shit controls, shit level design and shit music. One that they actually put fucking effort and care into. I don't even care if its not perfect or uses the goddamn modern designs, a real console 2d main series game is what Sonic needs more than anything.
>>
>>252777640

I'm pretty sure Sonic 4 was developed as a cheap Cell-phone title before Sega decided to quickly port it for Digital Download and throw a '4' on the end and call it a sequel in a halfhearted attempt to try to lure in older, nostalgic Sonic fans.
>>
>>252777927
It was called sonic dl before it got the 4
>>
>>252777927
>older, nostalgic Sonic fans.

It's a funny thing, being older. You tend to be a little more discerning when it comes to finding flaws in things than you could when you were a child. Whoops.
>>
>>252777910
Isnt Sonic 4 a mobile game that got ported to consoles?
Anyway, I'd expect a console 2d sonic game to look like generations. It would be cool. Or at least a decent Sonic DIMPS game, seriously, they used to be good.
>>
>>252777834
It's being planned to be released on the 25th Anniversary of Sonics debut, which is seen as the period where the company "took off"

Expect an announcement in 2015 and a release in the second quarter of 2016

Wait

SEGA was founded in 1960

Unless you mean SEGA Studios, which was founded in 1983 which would mean this should of come out in 2008

Unless you mean when SEGA studios reorganized itself in 1990 which means this game would be for their 25th anniversary next year

Hmm

If it's Lost World but with no poorly implemented gimmicks, I'd say it'll do much better with critics and fans. Lost World's platforming was fine. It's when they expanded beyond that where it got shaky.
>>
>>252778042

What garbage. I wonder who made the call on that decision.

Clearly they saw what Capcom did with mega man but couldn't be bothered to actually make an original game to try to capitalize on it.

Yeah? What about it, cunt? It was every bit as shit as episode 1. Do not give me that shit, any whiff of improvement is negligible in bowl of utter shit. The entirety of Sonic 4 not only does not live up to the original trilogy, it's a million times worse. It's even far worse than Sonic Advance. Fuck, it's far worse than Sonic Rush. At least Rush had good music and tolerable physics. How the fuck do they go that far backwards?? HOW?? It makes no fucking sense unless they were purposefully trying to fuck over Sonic 4 as much as possible.

Sonic CD is good, it's just designed differently than most Sonic games. They're designed more maze-like to make finding the Metal Sonic machines hard to find. Sonic 3&K is god tier. The best Sonic game bar none. The only Sonic game that ranks up their with Mario's best. Otherwise the rest, is fine with me.

>>252778435
I disagree. Sonic goes "fast enough". Just fast enough to where you still have fucking control. Also, if you're real good, you can just boost infinitely. Seriously, it's the most well designed thing about Lost World

The werehog stages weren't even that bad compared to Clors' shitty 40 second filler stages, blue fucking wisp, constant stop and go platforming, blocky platforming in general in 2D sections that resemble nothing out of a 2D Sonic game mind you, the whole game was 75% 2D and don't get me started on the cutscenes.
>>
>>252778742

My opinion has always been this. It's as fast as you can go without having 30% of the level completely on rails like Generations. I hated Generations for this

The binary speed shit is what ruins it. Three speeds: stop, go, fast. That is completely fucking contrary to how Sonic should work. Sonic is about gradually building up speed naturally, and earning speed through terrain manipulation. Now they added a fucking run button? It's that shit that actually got me to drop Lost World.
>>
>>252778867
Most people's problems with gens was how it wanted to be "the fast" sonic game but didn't commit to that.

Why does Jason griffiths sonic always sound like he's asking a question?

I'm allowes to when the platformin isn't momentum based like the other 2D sonic games. I prefer the slope like stage design of the classic 2D games compared to Colours Blocky stop and go shit.
>>
>>252778315
wait you are saying that colors was better than Unleashed? You are saying that Unleashed didn't have the best ending boss of all time? Fuck off
>>
>>252778995
>Boost2win maymay
Opinion disregarded.
>>
>>252779106
Sonic hasn't been momentum based in since the 16 bit era
>>
If you like platforming balanced with speed, then Sonic CD should probably be your favorite Sonic game of all. If all you want is speed, Sonic Rush should be your favorite.
>>
>>252779151
If you drop the chip section then it's fine, same level as perfect chaos in boss fight tiers
>>
>>252779256
if only there was a more modern sonic rush, keeping the music style and gameplay but obviously with much better visuals. call it rush 3(DS)
>>
>>252778995
As opposed to Colors, which is just "press forward to win" in 3d areas and blocky, no-momentum platforming with almost no stage-specific hazards/enemies in 2d areas.
At least Gens has actual level design.
>>
>>252778929
Sega will never do pinball momentum in 3D because it's too complicated physics wise without getting glitches and also it might be too hard to design levels around this. We're going to have to accept this unless they make a breakthrough on pinball momentum in 3D.
>>
>>252779381
I didnt get to play Rush adventure, how was it?
>>
>>252778996
Wrong.
Top Sonic games OFFICIALLY are
Sonic 1
Sonic 2
Sonic 3 and Knuckles
Sonic CD
Sonic Advance
Sonic Colors
Sonic Generations

everything else is mediocre at best

except Sonic Adventure 2 that is an extremely debatable game because it had highs better than anything released after it but had some serious lows

The voices didn't sound like a cat neutering parade. I also didn't understand what they were saying, which is even better considering the awful dialog! Voice acting is probably one of the worse things that happened to this franchise.

I also had it new, meaning I was playing this:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qnNTj0zwMFU
while most other Americans were stuck with an N64/PS1/Saturn/Jaguar for a year or more still. I took it to parties, people freaked out over how pretty and jarring it was. That made the japanese one extra good for the short time it got to shine.

Two fan developers accomplished it, and they even have far less bugs than the official games do with their shitty linear physics. Damizean's BlitzSonic and Xaklse's Sonic UDK.

Besides of which, lack of pinball physics doesn't mean you need fucking binary speed with a run button. Sonic Adventure worked great. Natural movement and you didn't need to press a fucking goddamn button to go from walk to run.

Even if that were the case (which it isn't): at least Gens has actual level design.
Colors had some stuff resembling actual gameplay between all those filler acts- some Aquarium Park and Asteroid Coaster levels come to mind- but it's not enough to make a whole game out of it.

No, you can't do 60 FPS, the game is locked at 30... unless I'm missing something. I think I tried with Unleashed and it was just the game running twice as fast, not higher framerate itself. Explain please?
>>
>>252780060
Actually Generations is a lot of fun despite the very few bugs present but I can understand you hopping on the bandwagon of hating every 3d sonic game despite not having played any of them !

I think Lost World is a step in the right direction. Just needs a little tweaking. Maybe put a little Generations back in but where it makes sense.

>>252779898
You actually cannot, as the truck will get to you eventually.
But yeah, it's just an automated, "cinematic" section to top off an otherwise decent level. Don't really see it as offensive, but it does exemplify the boost2win philosophy that ruled throughout the 3d sections in Colors and (most of) Unleashed.

It's not that stable, though, and definitely uneven in its progression and overall quality.
I would argue both Colors and Unleashed, despite being worse off in many respects, are much more polished.

Or one of the dozen fans who have successfully programmed accurate recreations of the original engines, two of which they hired for, reasons I will never understand, nothing more than fucking phone ports of Sonic CD, Sonic 1 and 2. These programmers run fucking laps around the entirety of Sonic Team and Dimps and could easily outclass anything those incompetent fuckwits have ever made and create an ideal main series Sonic game. But nope. Sonic 2 on Android.

That was early on when the mysterious of Sonic physics were still being solved. Goes to show how incredible the original developers of the Sonic games were. Nowadays, the mysteries have been thoroughly solved. There's an entire online guide to creating accurate Sonic physics. There's numerous fan engines for different softwares, even in raw C++, that are all accurate or close approximations of the original Sonic physics, some of which are vastly superior to anything Sega has shat out in the last 20 years.

You like a solid, meaty Sonic game that is extremely polished and fun, but doesn't necessarily do either speed or platforming all that well either.

Elaborate on "not doing either well".
I honestly think rush may do speed well,
but CD for me does really nothing.
It's just a mess.

I am genuinely curious.

It's actually designed well, because there are plenty of spots specifically designed for Time travel and it's more mazey so finding the Metal Sonic's aren't obvious.

The game ain't all that fast. And the game doesn't have all that much platforming. Simple as that.

It's really long, and it's really pretty. But it definitely comes more from the Sonic 2 mold, for better or for worse.

I deleted my post because it wasn't well thrown together hoping that someone didn't notice but yeah, Sandopolis is also what I was thinking about, not the ghosts though. That's challenging gameplay, the non-challenging part was pushing rocks, using the ropey things (you can avoid them but I often pick them up my mistake) and waiting for the sand to fill.

One other big offender were probably Mushroom Hill's lifters and the spinning top things in Marble Garden.

To be fair, I remember hearing about Generations LONG before Sega made a official announcement. It wasn't 4chan though, someone posted about it (Game that is a collection of levels using the Sonic Unleashed engine for Sonic's anniversary) on another forum a good year or so before the actual announcement.

So hey, who knows. Granted, if the OP isn't bullshitting, then that means that Sega does not have too much confidence in Sonic Boom or is making something parallel to it so if it does fail, they have what OP was talking about.

I may not be some tech savvy guy, but I don't think it would be EXTREMELY hard. Just complex enough. We're in 2014, we can bruteforce all physics algorithms. Classic Generations needed something as simple as a byte shift to resemble legacy gameplay.

>>
>>252785867
Well, the problem wasn't the boost button itself, it was that a few of the earlier stages weren't designed around boosting as an OPTIONAL mechanic.

But of course in typical Sanic Team fashion, the only solution is to remove it entirely.

This is just irrational. You cant enjoy Heroes and not enjoy the Adventure games. You cant enjoy Colors and not like Unleashed day levels or Generations.
>>
>>252787549
I like how the basic platforming of the stages rapes mindless boost however the boost would probably be practical or most likely with extensive practice.

>>252787985
True I played generations. Its not bad but its why I felt like boost gameplay needs to go. Stages are just experiences now and aside from the few obvious special paths and minor deviations its the same.While with the adventure series a run can be very vanilla or completely broken.
>>
>>252778684

I dont care for Sonic CD either. Too platformy. Sonic 2 and 3 & KNuckles had a flow to them. Sonic 1 did too somewhat. But Sonic CD has some of the most ugly level design in a 2D Sonic game.
>>
>>252788665
>You cant enjoy Heroes and not enjoy the Adventure games.

I agree with this somewhat but the team mechanic defines heroes and really differentiates the two.

>You cant enjoy Colors and not like Unleashed day levels or Generations.

I don't agree. I would even say this is wrong. Liking colors would be more of a reason to hate the boost sonics. The game was more of a speedy 2d platformer with maximizing score and obtaining new paths with powerups. It had a high emphasis or platforming with really great stage design. Boost games was focused on boost which the stages were molded for. This was very noticeable in generations.

Fuck you and your "it was built for speedrunnars." It wasn't. It's a core gameplay mechanic of that game and its achilles heel. Out with it I say. Colors did it right by having it be extremely limited. The result: the level design didn't use it like a fucking crutch.

How can you even think Generations had good level design? It was nonsense. Boost hallways and a few homing attack strings here and there is NOT good level design.

Colors had the drill wisp which opened up levels to explore. There were entire stretches of level underground in some levels filled with goodies and such. That is a fucking revelation for the franchise.

What the fuck did generations innovate or change? For all intents and purposes gens still has the same shitty fucking design we've been getting since SA1/2. Homing attack your way over some bottomless pits! No fucking thanks.

Enjoy fixating on the cheap looking block platforming in Colors (yes, there was some) as opposed to all the other amazing things it accomplished.

>>
>>252809974
he. . .didn't? Not in the conventional sense anyway. I'm pretty sure everyone here misuses the term. Momentum using refers to rolling physics in a sonic game, not momentum in a literal sense. If that were true, every sonic game has it to some extent. True momentum is if you roll down a hill, you'll speed up until you reach the bottom where you will eventually slow down and uncurl. No Sonic game has this. None. SLW is honestly the closest we've gotten.

The first step is to have levels wide enough to even incorporate this mechanic and let me tell you, SA2 doesn't have any of those.

I want a full remake of Sonic Adventure. I don't mean an "enhanced" (some would argue it's inferior) port like DX. I mean I want new assets made from scratch, redone voice acting, and a bug check for the physics engine.

I fucking love every part of SA1, even the Big levels, and have not been satisfied with a Sonic game since (SA2 came close). I know most people don't care for it much, but I consider it the epitome of Sonic's physics, gameplay, and story.

>>
>>252807339

>>252813491

The implementation was half assed in that. I don't think you necessarily need to hold a button for the running speed to kick in. Something more akin to Advance 2's afterimage mechanic in 3D would probably work better. You have to work to get into the afterimage state and then you have more influence over your direction with increased acceleration and top speed.
>>
>>252813632
feel free to supply a reason as to why generations had great level design.

The 2d segments are like a slip n slide. You have no traction on the ground and are moving too fast to ever do anything besides jump and boost.

The 3d segments are hallways for boosting, homing attack strings, and some really shitty dodgy platforming every now and then. They usually have homing attack targets littered throughout though because the controls arent precise enough for anything remotely resembling fun platforming.

Your counterpoint?

Shit nigga, just look at Super Monkey Ball. It may not be suited for a Sonic game, but it sure as hell has better physics than any 3D Sonic to date. And that series has been around since SA2: Battle for christ's sakes. This isn't a new technology or some shit. Pinball/momentum based physics in 3D isn't rocket science and Sonic Team surely knows this.

>>252789740
The fact that they never went on to completion or whatever does not discount the other anon's point. The point is: if some group of fans can do what Sonic Team hasn't be able to do in over a decade, then it's just plain sad and shows that they aren't even trying.

>>252813491
Sonic doesn't need a gofast button. He needs natural, fluid movement. If you absolutely have to put in a button for precision controls, make it a trigger button for braking and slowing him down to platform.

>>252813993
I've always thought that building up momentum to engage boost mode is a far better use of the mechanic. Shame SAdv2 doesn't have very good level design, because it felt great to play and was fucking satisfying when you went fast enough to go HOLYFUCKFAST.

Simply pressing X to do that just isn't as fun or engaging.

Personally, I love the side mouth. I always thought it looked awkward in the center. See 06 and his Brawl model.

I think the Unleashed handled it perfectly. Where it just shows on whatever side the camera is facing him.

Get rid of that stupid as balls rating system. I hate feeling bogged down to have to complete a level in record time whenever I play a Sonic game. I wanna explore the level and take it all in and discover new areas. Not spam the boost button from point A to point B to try and make it to the end of a level like some autistic fucker.

Also, what do you think of this. Shit is gay right?

I have never understood why people hate this design. It's perfect. I don't give two shits or a single fuck about 'muh nostalgia', and everything wrong with 06/Brawl (lanky legs and spikes too long) doesn't exist here, and they were nitpicks at worst. It's absolutely inane that people get up in arms over mere eye color.
>>
>>252816195
Well it's been through many iterations but I'm pretty happy with what we have now. I think they've even shortened the legs and spines a little since Unleashed.

He's a happy fusion of modern and classic at this point.
>>
>>252816195
I can understand people not liking the design itself, but I absolutely adore his Unleashed model. I'm glad Sonic Team just stuck with it instead of changing the design every game.

Technically we've had it since the Shadow game (his CGI model), but they dropped it in favour for the "realistic" 06 design.

>>
>>252814310

I don't think the afterimage mechanic is great for 2D since you go way too fast for the perspective. But adapting it to 3D might solve a lot of problems relating to Sonic moving at slow speeds and Sonic moving at high speeds without some arbitrary barrier making you go slow or go fast. Not to mention it keeps speed skill indexed. A good player will maintain the state for as long as they can and can take advantage of the new routes a farther jump and higher speeds provide. A bad one has access to it in places but will lose it if they come to a halt or get hit.

I agree you should be able to activate it at will. Maybe a button press enters the mode after you've been running at the regular top speed for X seconds.

>>252814392

Front mouth is ok in other media like the comics and 2D animation. It works because there is lots of leeway in exaggerating it. It doesn't work in 3D unless the model is designed to handle it. Otherwise you get Boom/2006 and Sonic Adventure crazy mouth.

-A lot of new friends like "Isaac the Turkey " or "Ashanti the Dingaroo"

Not him, but any platforming or non/corridor level design in Colors' 3D sections were as rare as Generations, if not more so. Levels like Sky Sanctuary and Seaside Hill had a lot more intersecting paths with secrets and running space than most of Unleashed's or Colors' levels.
