    Arin's likes Sonic stuff, including the music, character designs, and specifically racing games. He's involved because he like those things and has a following. I'd absolutely be down for Johnny and other, less popular but more positive fans of the series be involved, too. The new lady that Aaron streams with is apparently in charge of "influencers", so direct that energy towards her, and let the man have fun. I say that as someone incredibly envious of the opportunities he's had with Sega.

    Big doesn't wear socks and sandals, Arin, those are his feet. :v:

    SEGA seems to be coming up with more and more unique ways of promoting their games. Really cool animation shorts and this rather shit song. Well, if it helps sell a few more copies, then good...I guess.

    As for the song

    I think maybe Arin just gets along really well with the SoA guys.

    I just noticed a change in this game. Early on the rings and lap counter were on the right side of the screen where as they've now been moved to the top. This was so they could make room for a course map which surprisingly didn't exist before. Nice touch. They also changed the number font. Now it uses the standard Sonic font instead of the other one they used before.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JRuI7FiApVQ

    So this is interesting. It shows off some of the paint kits that can be used and some of them are based off of different levels throughout the series, they are as follows

    Final Fortress
    Music Plant (there's a shock)
    Sandopolis
    Seaside Hill
    Glacier Land (guessing the snow/lava level in the game?)
    Studiopolis
    Planet Wisp
    Rooftop Run
    Stardust Speedway
    Mirage Saloon
    And a few more that I couldn't tell because the guy didn't go over that. But yay Mania reps!

    I wonder if these paint themes have anything to do with what levels we might see, because I don't think we've seen them all yet and I think they're doing that 3 zones a theme and so far we have Planet Wisp, Desert, Rooftop Run, Seaside Hill, Glacierland, Casino, and Spooky... ah shit nevermind. But what interesting choices. I know it's a relatively minor thing but nice seeing nods to other levels that didn't make the cut. Also this video goes over some of the customization parts you can get in the game.

    And I swear this game needs like 2 more zone themes and 2 more teams. It actually looks kinda solid now but it just doesn't have all the content it could.

    Sumo has added characters to both Sega racing games they've made post-launch. I could absolutely see them adding a Team SegaSonic of Classic Sonic, Ray, and Mighty. Not much left to draw on in terms of characters that have had screentime in the past decade. A Team Eldritch of Mephiles, Chaos, and Infinite could be funny, though. DLC tracks, however, not so likely.

    I mean they could add like the Babylon Rogues as a team. They've even been put in the mobile Sonic Forces racer over time.

    Huh I was watching more videos of this game and came across this weird little thing:

    [​IMG]

    What does this feature do/does the winner of this vote get anything for winning it?

    Here are the videos that show off more of this game in action from a non Story mode context, so you can actually see the teams mixed up. These people seem to have some kind of final version of the game though because they're getting achievements/trophies for some reason.

    Putting the Babylon Rogues in cars feels all sorts of wrong. Moreso than Sonic in one :v:/>.

    Based on the stream:

    [media]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MWlbiwT2_9g[/media]

    These are the tracks. They're set up in sets:

    Planet Wisp
    Wisp Circuit
    Mother's Canyon
    Doctor's Mine

    Seaside Hill
    Ocean View (ASRT)
    Lost Palace (SASASR)
    Whale Lagoon (SASASR)

    Glacierland
    Ice Mountain
    Frozen Junkyard
    Hidden Volcano

    Casino Park
    Roulette Road (SASASR)
    Bingo Party (SASASR)
    Pinball Highway (SASASR)

    Sandopolis
    Sand Road
    Boo's House
    Clockwork Pyramid

    Rooftop Run

    Market Street
    Haunted Castle
    Sky Road

    The final area is Final Fortress. So likely a return of Turbine Loop (SASASR), Dark Arsenal (SASASR) or Egg Hangar (SASASR)


    So I'm guessing 12 new tracks, 9 old tracks? Bit less than a Mario Kart. The old tracks definitely get a major visual uplift (OG ASR looks rough by today's standards), but little in terms or remixing or changing the original design, unlike the remakes in Mario Kart.

    Not where I want to be.
    Sonic (?): Coming summer of 2055...?
    I mean Ken Block has popularised the Sk8r-aesthetic on his cars...I can totally see the Rogues as car-sliding hobbyists.

    With only one week left before launch here is finally some Switch footage of the game (and also how the game looks when you're not playing in team mode, something they haven't really shown off in anyway). It doesn't look too bad. It runs at 30 FPS but it seems to run smoothly at 30 FPS so it's not quite the deal breaker for me.

    Also confirmed there is an option to turn the voice volume all the way down if you don't want to hear them blabbing all the time.

    Is that a Toriena Casino Park mix I hear in that vid? I wonder if she's doing all of that stage's tracks.

    More footage, this time showing off what I think is the first time we've seen the story mode in English.

    The cutscenes are very low budget but hey, so is this game :v: but the renders used in said cutscenes are nice. I'm kind of hoping future games use models similar to those and they can ditch the ones they've been butchering since like Unleashed.

    Of course the OST had to be leaked.

    OK, there's no way I buy that Knuckles is still voiced by Travis Willingham. Who is that? It kinda sounds like Roger putting on a deeper voice.

    Yup.

    You can find some songs already in YouTube, like the full version of Green Light Ride or Lost Palace (God, I fucking love this one already). Though, it seens they aren't looped yet, since it's just a rip.

    You do realize that the game itself was leaked as well on the Switch. It's the reason why these people got the soundtrack rips.

    Oooh I'm liking this track:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cNgxJSb-D50

    Also what the hell a whole bunch of remixes and the only one from the classic era seems to be a Sandopolis remix, unless you count Sonic R in which case there are like 3 songs then, 4 if you count Mania (Just the score tally song nothing too exciting on that front)
