    <a href="http://www.bioware.com/bioware_info/press_releases/2007_06_21_Sonic_DS/">Bioware is making an RPG for the DS starring Sonic. 'Nuff said.</a>

    :blink:

    Well, at least it's Bioware; that should mean it's a GOOD RPG... Need I remind you of their history, including Neverwinter Nights, Knights of the Old Republic, Jade Empire, and the upcoming Mass Effect? Yeah, they know what they're doing (unlike Sonic Team).

    Oh no... this is bad news. No matter how good the developer, Sega will probably pop in and make sure it's at least 45% retarded during development.

    It's long been held in the roleplaying circles I've been in Sonic doesn't translate to RPG very well at all—unless these people are miracle workers, I'm not expecting very much...
     
  4. Well, this could either be really good or really really bad. It's got my attention though.

    First reaction: "God dammit. There goes being first to the punch."

    Second reaction: "Fucking sweet, this should be very interesting."

    99% Chance the game will be called "Sonic Adventure DS" :P

    Sonic the Hedgehog RPG: Legend of the 7 Emeralds

    I think the mario RPG was named Super Mario RPG: Legend of the 7 Stars. So that would be a fitting rip off title for Sonic's RPG.

    Yeah, I bet there'll be a Dark Shadow.

    Wait, that was already done...

    ....Is it sad that even stupid ideas I make up are already done character-wise, or what?

    Fuck new characters, let's make a whole new universe! Knights of the Old Emeralds! It'll be a great lead up to the MMO: Sonic and the Fan Rapists.

    On the other hand- the last time Sonic was in third party hands they at least had enough sense to not make anyone new in Sonic 3D Blast and all.

    The last time Sonic was in 3rd party hands was Sonic Shuffle.

    I'd say it was Sonic Rush, since it was Dimps'.

    Okay, yeah...Sonic Adventure 1, anyone? Definitely one of the best Sonic games in the past 10 years...You can't tell me that the story in that wasn't RPG-ish, and even the gameplay. Sonic Adventure 1 was great, and seeing Bioware's previous works, this should turn out as amazing, especially since, if they work at it, the level of detail could be almost the same.

    Are you kidding me? Sonic Adventure 1 is one of the LAST games that goes into my head when I think RPGs. I mean... how can any sane person make that connection at all?

    Sonic Adventure is in no fucking way an RPG. It's an action/adventure-oriented game in a previously action/platformer series.

    If you want a perfect mix of RPG and platformer, look at Tomba (Tombi for you European d00dz). Fucking brilliant game.

    I definitely agree with that!
    But the second one wasn't great... Maybe because they did it in full 3D

    Nothing that concerns this place in the least.
    Ugh... Sonic is the LAST thing I could EVER picture as an RPG game.
