>Even Metal Sonic looks like shit
Is there anything these devs can do right?
>There's another trailer for this
I know SEGA has never been subtle , but for the love of god at this point you might as well show the whole game.
It's clear this dev team just doesn't understand how to render the character's foreheads. They all have bulbous, browless skulls.
Why does sonic look like he's going to drop a deuce?
Ignore or forget all the concepts and ideas from the 90s that everyone loved.
Water down the few good ideas that are left.
Strip the gameplay mechanics bare until every game reeks of mediocrity.
Bland, shallow, forced characterization and retarded stories.
Redesign all the characters to look far more stupid and uncanny valley.
Reduce previously useful beloved characters to useless unlikeable side roles.
Take popular fan feedback at face value and stretch it to such extremes that the games get more fucked up so you can blame the series problems on the fans.
Not give a shit about anything but money.
There you have it. The recipe for modern Sonic.
>The very worst game in the line-up was Sega’s Sonic Boom, which was so unspeakably awful we couldn’t even force ourselves to play through the whole demo. Sonic: Lost World might have been a disappointment, but at least it seemed to be trying. Sonic Boom is just a hateful bore of a game, that seems to exist only as a showcase for every mistake you could possibly make when creating a 3D action adventure.
>The camera is constantly staring at the floor, or anywhere other than where you’re going, the combat lacks any kind of skill or tactility, and the puzzles and level design are so migraine-inducingly banal it almost seems like some sort of meta criticism of the whole genre. The fact that the new character designs are so ugly, and the graphics look like a first wave Xbox 360 game, are so far down the list of problems we dread to think what else the final game will get wrong.
>"Don't worry; the new one sucks from what I played. It's very bad. That game is trash. That's one where I played it at E3 and I fully expect that to be the final product. No amount of feedback is going to save that game
While I get what this image is suppose to say, everybody knows that the "edgy" version of Mickey Mouse was always Bugs Bunny.
The game looks like shit. Probably will watch the cartoon, because I hate myself and constantly watch visual garbage.
And because I love Amy and think she's sexy.
He's... he's so happy.
Where did the edge go?
Now THIS is a good design.
It's face looks really plump to me, but it's still plausible.
Considering even the hardcore Sonic forums were going "why isn't SEGA showing anything why are the demos on the cons still the same ones that all the critics hated", they needed to do this
>I CAN'T DO THIS MAN THIS ISN'T A CRASH BANDICOOT I DON'T KNOW HOW TO DO THIS HOW DO I SANIC
Don't. Why should SEGA get away with making games of this "quality" and still somehow make money? If this is the future of Sonic, I'd honestly rather see the franchise dead.
Do Sonic fans (and by fans I mean the full-blown autists who post on the Sonic Stadium) actually have a threshold for shit? Could SEGA release a game so bad that even they wouldn't play it and DEFEND it.
Considering even Sonic Stadium's been for months basically 3 people going "but this looks good" vs 20 going "this was supposed to be good it has plot why is it shit" and a few more going "it's always looked shit", SEGA's dropping the ball hard with this
Which is fine by me, they're focusing on Alien Isolation instead and that's good
>Could SEGA release a game so bad that even they wouldn't play it and DEFEND it.
The fact that Sonic 06 exist and that there are bottom feeders that still defend points to no
Huh, I kinda like this. At least Shadow's smart enough to not have bandages everywhere like a twat.
Reminds me of Riders incarnation. His shoes and glove designs are pretty similar.
>Sonic 06 literally has better textures, lighting and draw distance.
Man, I'm really not interested in Boom's gameplay, but I'm just so happy that characters are actually interacting with each other and the world around them. That's been missing since 06.
I was expecting a cape or something
They're given carte blanche to explore story and establish the characters, so they make Knuckles even dumber, remove all his interesting traits except "he's strong", randomly shove some of them into Amy, make her "stronggurl" (at least seems that way in the game based on bios and whatnot- the cartoon has everyone being goofier), have Sonic exude ten times the cheese of Colours.
Therein lies the downfall of sanic. Notice how it all went to shit as soon as they tried to make it more complicated than "eggman is a bad guy and is trying to steal the emeralds to do bad stuff"?
no you nigger it's going to look exactly like that in the final product, the shitty first drawings of the main cast were "work in progresses" too and OH look what happened with that
Don't forget to pre-order guys!
The Adventures were nice enough with it and Unleashed was genuinely enjoyable in regards to that.
They just need to take a cue from Freedom Planet of all things and whenever you start a game have a big pop-up appear DO YOU WANT TO PLAY ARCADE OR STORY MODE ARCADE HAS NO CUTSCENES SO YOU'RE NOT FORCED TO ENDURE ANOTHER SATURDAY MORNING PLOT NONSENSE
Well judging by Boom!Shadow and a hypothetical Boom!Omega being just a stretched Omega, Boom!Rouge'd just be normal Rouge with some more details in the clothing
You did indeed. As I said, he looked fairly more simple in terms of construction and surface detail in CD, this design is however basically the same thing as the "new" Metal Sonic design they've had since 2008 or so
I skipped a word there. I meant only the cartoon animals get redesigned, Omega'd just look basically the same as his 06 version or something
Yuji Naka's also not had anything to do with Gens or Colours, neither of which are trash. Are you drunk? Why would you think a person would be named "Yuji Make"
>Boom!Rouge'd just be normal Rouge with some more details in the clothing
I would be okay with this. Rouge has a good design already, so there's no need to change it up too much.
>Omega'd just look basically the same as his 06 version or something
Hopefully without those horrible stereotypical puppet movements that scream "HE'S A ROBOT. DID YOU GET THAT HE'S A ROBOT?"
>implying that's ever stopped reboot cancer
>everything but the edge
I dunno, they didn't touch Metal, they didn't touch Orbot, they didn't touch Cubot. I'm fairly confident "leave the mechanical designs alone if we touch that we won't be able to put it back together" is a running theme here
>Sonic letting himself get shot and crushed by boulders
I laughed harder than I should.
25% of the time at most. Adventure 2 is a bizarre late 90's sci-fi conspiracy story that's only not mocked nowadays because of nostalgia, Heroes and Shadow and 06 were a mess... outside small moments like Chaotix being badass in Shadow or some stuff in Rush, the series hasn't quite proven the grasp on multiple characters yet
probably because early when they shoved everyone the stories didn't work and now the stories work fans don't understand you can't just shove 30 heroes in them
>shadow is the best design of Boom
What the fuck went wrong?
Wait... how has Shadow managed to end up looking like less of a douche than Sonic?
Probably the hover boosters he uses to go fast. If it's anything like their old designs, they're not actually front-facing - they're wrapping around the underside.
those are the ones I just mentioned as "rare moments when it worked"
it's a dysfunctional detective agency with a brooklyn crocodile, a weeaboo chameleon, and a hyperactive bee mocking the other two
it's great characters
The complete lack of necks has been bugging me for a while. I never noticed it once in original Sonic, but yeah, as he gets taller, it seems weirder.
What's also weird to me is that nobody else seems to care. You hear uproar about changing his eye colors or other details I didn't notice, but meanwhile there are apparently two people in the entire world now who notice their heads just sitting directly on their chests.
I think Sonic 360 is the worst game I played this generation but at the same time I haven't given up on the series either.
I'm somewhere in the middle between faggotry and sensibility.
Must be a Shadow fan on the design team.
i DON oops
I don't really expect character development outside maybe of small, game-specific stuff like how in a sitcom you'd sometimes have a character face a personal problem at the start of an episode and face it by the end
But having more characters involved, of various factions and with good interaction, just makes it more entertaining, really
>FIGURE OUT WHAT TYPE OF GAME SONIC BELONGS IN, THEN DO THAT
Sonic Team's done that pretty much (fast-paced time-attack games with differing playstyles as a side dish for fluff), in this case it's SEGA of America going A BLOO BLOO BLOO WE WANT OUR OWN SONIC
Well, now you know never to have faith in Sonic again. And you didn't lose any money over it, so everyone wins.
Someone fucking gets it.
>Wait... how has Shadow managed to end up looking like less of a douche than Sonic?
Shadow's friends keep his ego and sourpuss tendencies in check.
Sonic Team did the right thing to just dump the third Nintendo exclusive Sonic on SoA so they could work an extra year on their own next gen multiplat Sonic game.
>tfw you realise the only way to feasibly make a good modern game that'd be an Adventure 3 would involve removing so many elements nostalgic fans associate with Adventure 1 and 2 that you'd only result in the Adventure fans still complaining like hell
Sidekicks going back to "HEY SONIC HEY SONIC HEY SONIC" while you're trying to play the game is not a good design choice. Banter needs to be kept to cutscenes and special areas in stages, not every two seconds when you're trying to platform.
Though considering how automated this game looks that shouldn't be an issue. But it's still fucking annoying.
>new villain is a snake with an army of ancient evil robits
why not just make the villain Robotnik then
I think we both know that's not happening.
It's going to be shit, just don't be surprised when it is.
They're going to make her tits smaller because feminism.
Literally no one ever wanted that. Not even the autists.
Everytime I see demand for an Adventure 3- not a return to platforming alone, a specific return to the Adventure era- it's always in the context of "there's not enough playable characters and the stories are too comedic and I don't like this"
Because Bass is edgy done right.
He's basically just a robot programmed for one thing "be the strongest robot" and to that end he just screws Dr. Wily over more times than he actually helps the guy. He's more of a joke than a serious character,r eally.
Bass.exe has the whole "secret end boss challenge" thing to him where you play the whole game just to fight him, kinda like how in the Kingdom hearts series, all your gameplay has led you to fight Sephiroth/the lost remnant/Xemnas/Young Xehanort/Julian
Wait, do you guys actually hate Shadow?
If they just made Sonic: Lost World less crazy with the level design I challenge you to say that wasn't a great idea.
The gameplay was really quite good. As it is I give it something like a 7/10 but I like it personally.
I generally understand a shitload of the decisions SEGA makes that people complain. I understand Shenmue's a great risk that likely wouldn't sell as much as it'd cost. I understand after Yakuza's previous sales it doesn't make sense to bring it back. Etc.
This is one of the few questions I still have- why the fuck not bring Chao Gardens as a virtual pet downloadable game for mobile phones and portables
it'd make more money than hell on earth
>the hedgehawg dilema's
>they keep away from other hedgehawgs cause they're afraid to get hurt once they get close to them
>sanic has a ton of fucking friends
With the Sonic Dash game as popular as it is, we will see a Chao iPhone eventually.
It will be absolutely awful and filled with DLC in app purchases though so bear in mind that it will be abysmal. As such, it will be hated by anyone with sense and SEGA will have more excuses to hate and shit on their fans.
what do you think it would smell like? haha.
>Shadow in Boom
>Looks almost the same save some little details.
>Redesigned out the ass with sport tape everywhere.
What the hell? What's the point of over redisining one batch of characters if the rest you're just gonna leave them like that?
>mfw Shadow and Metal Sonic are actually in the game
>mfw that guy who claimed to be a bug tester for this game was telling the truth
>mfw the game is now confirmed to be shit
Someone should really post that pic containing what he said about his experiences with this game.
>destroy all organic life
>organic snake in a robo suit
So is Lyric gonna kill himself too?
>implying you can stop on a dime when you're moving faster than Sonic
>in a series where Sonic has stopped on a dime on numerous ocassions
>moving faster than Sonic
If you can't handle the heat, don't step into the fire, nigga.
Confirmed for fake and gay.
And what's Chrissy-poo going to do if they don't? He lacks the "power" he once had, he's a shadow of his former self.
>the CG models will never be this expressive
>mfw the best sonic game released in the last ten years is the iphone temple run clone
They're just giving you more reasons to compare this to 06.
>super expensive to animate
It's the curse of CGI.
That's my point. You can't just stop cold when you're being propelled by a force of that magnitude. There was no way Metal Sonic could've avoided that collision with the wall in Sonic CD.
No worries, I fucking hate Classic Bass, I'm a bit more fine with BN Bass since he's just mainly a super boss, but Classic is retarded.
>Turn on master
>Get ass kicked by rival
>Go back to master to get fixed up
Nigga if I was Wily I'd put a bomb in that fucker so he knows his place.
Shadow on the other hand, I like him better when he has other people to play off of, so having him be buddy buddies with Omega and Rouge was a great thing that they did.
Here's my redux of Shadow. 100000 hours in MS Paint, etc.
How do you know? We said the same about Shadow and Metal and Marine the...excuse me NotMarine the...oh goddammit STICKS
they dont need to, shadow is adorable when he tries to be a hardass
normally im alright with sonics weird eye appearance but the middle bottom one is just crossing the line
>implying any sonic knockoff robot will ever actually be relevant in Archie except for the regular ol' Metal Sonic
and glorious Shard <3
Just the way it should be
b-but its okay now that the reboot happened
i dont have a lot of shard so have some of the second best egg boss
why are the robotic characters the best???
Because Archie actually has talented comic writers at the end of the day, but most of them can't flex their muscles because Sonic and Co. have strict rules in Do's and Don'ts. So that leaks onto all of their OC's in turn, a good chunk for the better, the reason why we did a reboot for the latter...
Robots are fun and have better abilities.
I think they JUST put it on Sonic SCANF
>tfw robodeer just had to be a girl
>/vg/ thinks one will die
I don't see it happening.
I just dont see big sister deer dying, robodeer doesnt seem like a character that would be totally independent
And robodeer dying is just too easy and again would be a really shitty thing to write in a comic like archie sonic
I don't see either of them dying, worst I see is one or both not wanting to work for Eggman anymore, and Eggman keeping Cassia under his control.
B-but Cassia is the best one
Besides, I think Clover is plenty loyal, the only one who didnt show any disloyalty was Cassia
They'll probably just be like Geoffrey, hesitantly going along with it because they're conditioned to think its right
but it isn't a spinoff tie-in to the show, spinoff tie-ins don't get to define everything about the show
the show's using the world and designs and characters created by the game
which is the most amusing part here, the game that isn't a tie-in can only be justified by saying it is
You shut your fucking mouth, you have no idea how hype I am that he's in this, I'm fucking sold.
>proceeds to show a shitty on-rails running section
I almost like /v/s rendition better.
He might be being changed to a reprogrammed Mecha Sonic, Sega don't seem to care much for that.
It'll give him a unique profile at least, still a bit sanicy but it'll go well with the FFs who are in a similar boat.
I hope so, Shard's a really fun character.
He is saying stealing candy from a baby is fine by him. Which would be fine if he was a hammy SMC style villain, but when it's the attempted gritty 90s protagonist saying that it just comes across as retarded.
Anyone else want a fallout/mad max style sonic?
Post apocalyptic. Maybe you play as shadow trying to survive in the wasteland. Shit would be cash and would return sonic to its golden days
I kinda like it, the upper body is pretty good, except for the forearms, the lower part of the body still needs some work.
I'd keep the torse and head, and try on some different arms and legs until something fits.
It's a simple crop of Rouge making an aggressive face against a white backdrop with the words "ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING" in bold white letters outlined black
I'm fairly certain the face comes from a piece of official artwork.
>Metal Sonic is my favorite vidya character
>They keep him out of so many games
>but put him in this shit
Why have you forsaken me Sega
He doesn't even look that bad though,unless they give him a speaking role that doesn't consist of beeps and boops with subtles and it's annoying I would be flipping my shit as well.I love Metal Sonic as well,maybe he'll even be in the show
Can't seem to find it in my folders, nor the ride's archive.
That's okay. Just uh, keep posting more Rouge pics. I'm sure we'll find the right one eventually....
WHY CANT WE JUST GET A GOOD FUCKING SONIC GAME?!!!!!!!!!!?????????!!!!!!!
this picture is never posted in these threads
it should be
I'm surprised by how little of Rouge I have,I have this of the main cas though
Sonic is fucking dead.
Just stop trying, SEGA.
Whoa, what the fuck? A good game?
SONIC IS GOOD AGAIN HOLY SHI-
>Sonic Lost World
Wait, what the fuck, SEGA?
Its like they like tortuing us.
>keep posting more Rouge pics
You could just be a xenophile
But we haven't posted anything over the line yet,we could if we wanted but hopefully we don't
>Sega will never use the bot again because he's
What defines a furry and a not furry again?
How was it trash? It was fun. Perfect balance of speed and platforming. The boss levels were lackluster, but the game had no issues that couldn't be fixed by future polishing.
The 2D levels were boring, Sonic should have a separate series entirely for 2D games like Mario.
It should be definitive 3D Sonic gameplay.
Colours and Generations Boost2Win shit wasn't fucking anything. Generations was fun as a trip down memory lane, I guess.
Why do people have to go to extremes with their opinions at all times?
Why is everything on /v/ TEH BEZT GAEM OF ALL TIEM or ABSOLUTE FUCKING SHIT with nothing in between?
I'm just speaking in general.
That's not a reason it's bad though.
If someone prepares a perfect steak, it isn't bad just because you don't like it. You just don't like it. Doesn't mean it is "trash" by any means.
It was amazingly fun. You're just trying to come up with reasons to not enjoy it at this point.
The DLC was also amazing and
This game is going to get 5s and 6s. Probably even worse considering Lost World looked 10x better than this shit.
No shame in loving Rouge, friend.
Damn shame Sega never actually does anything with her these days.
Ignore this retard.

Oh jesus no.
Oh come on, I wanted him to crank up the edge dial to 12! Where are the black bandages, chains, spike bands, piercings? I wanted some new edge to laugh at. Guess we're stuck with ow the edge until the next reboot.
He works better when he has the others to bounce off of, no different from Sonic really.
Real super power of teamwork and all that bullshit.
