Posts I've Made
17 May 2013 - 09:22 AMDamn TimmiT you're fast. I was watching the CVG liveblog and came straight here to post this and the thread was already up. You posted this thirty seconds after the announcement. You're fast. Faster than me. As for this announcement the game looks promising. Reminds me of Colours. I'm curious about the "worldwide partnership with Sega regarding the Sonic franchise". It sounds like Sonic may now be exclusive to the Wii U? If so Sega may be making a mistake there. Wii U sales are catastrophic. I have a feeling a cash-strapped Sega may have accepted a moneyhat here. This is positive news in that we're getting a new Sonic game but also negative news if the next Xbox and PS4 are now not getting a true next generation Sonic game. Something I was really looking forward to. The question is: does this mean Sonic is now a long-term Nintendo exclusive? The language Nintendo used indicates so. Anyone?
EDIT: CVG wrote this in their liveblog:
QuoteAnd that's all - a much shorter Nintendo Direct than usual, but some solid release dates in there, a new Mario & Sonic game and the announcement that Sonic games will be published by Nintendo going ahead, starting with the Wii U and 3DS exclusive Sonic: Lost World.
Sonic games published by Nintendo going forward? Guys. That means Sonic just became a Nintendo exclusive franchise (at least for the foreseeable future and until Sega or Nintendo indicates otherwise). That's the real news here. Sonic exclusive to Nintendo platforms moving forward. It looks like a next generation Sonic game for the next Xbox/PS4 is not happening anytime soon. A poor move by Sega IMO.
24 April 2013 - 12:36 AMThat's it. Sonic Retro's over. We had a good run guys.
EDIT: Hahaha... Friend of mine thinks this is some sort of TSSZ plot. I will fucking laugh my ass off if Tristan is an intern at Fox 12.
A TSSZ plot? Hah. I wouldn't put it past Tristan to do something like this. While we're on the subject what happened between Retro and TSSZ that caused the rift between the two sites? I've been here a while but not long enough to know. I know Tristan has done some shady things in the past like reporting on the Megamix leak (which brought unwanted attention). I remember him posting stories that were hyperbolic borderline fabrication in the past. Did he do something profound to cause the rift? Or was it a cumulative effect over a long period of time? If someone could shed some light on this I would appreciate it.
That is of course if it doesn't derail the thread and we're actually allowed to discuss it (as far as I know a direct link to TSSZ still triggers the word filter).
23 April 2013 - 09:38 PMAlso watch out for Sonic Classic 2. I believe Hez said the release was six months away but that was two to three months ago so it should be coming soon. All signs point to it being just as good if not superior to the original Sonic Classic which as previously stated was a damn good game. Sonic Classic 2 should be on your radar as the "next" Sonic fangame to look out for. I wonder how it's progressing actually. Hez has been quiet as of late regarding its progress. The guy is a machine though so I wouldn't be surprised if it has made substantial progress over the last few months. While we're on the subject of upcoming Sonic fangames I believe Nitemare is also working on a reboot of Sonic XG which was a huge Sonic fangame back in the day. The trailers indicate he's making swift progress on that too. So upcoming fangames: Sonic Classic 2 and Sonic XG.
My recommendations are therefore as follows: Sonic Axiom (play this seriously). Sonic Classic. Sonic Classic 2 (when it releases). Sonic XG (when it releases).
23 April 2013 - 09:31 PMHahahahaha. Holy shit. I'm laughing my head off right now. That's hilarious.
23 April 2013 - 05:51 PMTwo words. Sonic Axiom. The best Sonic fangame ever released IMO. A herculean effort with inspired art direction and level design close to the classics. Adored that game when it came out. Make sure you give it a shot. Outside of that I would also strongly recommend Hez's Sonic Classic. Damn good game also.
