  1. i really hope "zap" will actually be about ancient echidna technology like some people said.
     
  2. One more comment: sonic proportions in the trailer have definitely changed. They don't look like his taller modern version, more like something closer to classic or SA1 sonic. Even compared to lost world, Sonic seems shorter.

    This will be interesting. I hope they reveal it at E3, I'll be looking forward to it.

    Sonic Chronicles is canon again confirmed.
     
  4. I mean things like sky sanctuary already existed outside of chronicles. And sky sanctuary is by far one of the most adveanced (non eggman) technologies we have seen coming from another race.

    To be fair, he did say the following:
    This was up at least yesterday, well before the reveal:

    He may well still be full of it, but just saying.

    hnnnngh that's actually (some of) what I wanted. a Colors game on a modern system, and official releases of the taxman ports for stuff other than mobile. I'm good!

    ...the fuck kind of name is "Sonic ZAP" tho

    I don't know if either of these things were mentioned, but:

    Colors Ultimate will have Denuvo DRM

    Sega disappoints, yet again :) This really sucks for anyone planning to play on PC.

    We have confirmation that Sonic 3 will be in widescreen, and not a barebones emulation. Clearly we don't know if anything ELSE was changed, but the 4:3 footage in the trailer was just stock footage of vanilla Sonic 3.

    It's probably Sonic UP. Upon rereading it, it seems obvious. But I guess it could be Zap!

    I get the feeling this game will be about Wisps and/or the Phantom Ruby.. again. Not looking forward to that, but I guess I'll reserve my judgement until I see more of the game. On the other hand, I'm actually quite happy to see a really heavily rendered environment lol. Stylized is good for Sonic, but I've really started to miss the more detailed or grounded worlds, especially in comparison to LW/Forces' kinda blocky aesthetic.

    I had no real plans to get this, since I don't like the Epic store and so far it looks worse than the Wii one ran through Dolphin, but this is a real dick move if they end up requiring an online connection to play. I admit to being out of the loop for modern gaming, but I assumed that practice was on its way out.
     
  11. Yeah they should start targeting a constantly
    fluctuating framerate that hovers below 25 at best again. Sonic Team’s gameplay scale is limited to highy automated corridors because they don’t have the talent or vision to design anything else.

    Imagine if the Phantom Ruby was actually created by Mother Wisp.

    Not only does it require an online connection to start the game, but in the case of Sonic Mania it negatively impacted the game's performance on many systems. Huge bummer.

    To this end, we now have a Sonic Origins thread and the Sonic Colors Ultimate thread has been reopened. So let's continue discussion of those products in those threads.

    Nice little out, isn't it? If it happens to show up, he's Nostradamus, if it doesn't, then he called it being cancelled anyway - not like we'd know either way.

    So he decided to change his mind on his guess - and if he was wrong, he can just point back at the older one.

    nah m8, he's full of shit

    EDIT: And yes, discussion should move to the separate threads now.

    denuvo is actually common in recent years, and basically for all SEGA games, i expected nothing less
