I has already played it. It's fine for a beta/soft launch (v0.1.0), you can play it without connection.

If you want a more polished app,wait until it get a WW release. Now is in Beta. I repeat, BETA.

All things considered, this year we get a Sonic game for every kind of fan at least.

Yeah, my son loves Sonic Dash, so I guess he'd love this too.
He hates Sonic Runners since it has limited lives and online play only.

So like you said, a Sonic game for every kind of fan.

The problem with Runners was only the bad start-up and not implementing the pay once, free ads system and the FB thing working for have gifted lives from friends.

Although the game is planned for all types of audience, this game is for late teenagers and 25-30 years old people, I mean, long time fans...but they will not buy any IAPs. So, that's why the game got so much ads, it's the only way to make money until they implemented the Pay Once system when the game is more crowded.

Obviously, the Boom Dash is for children.

But they are all free, so if you don't like it, uninstall the app, it's easy.

SEGA Technical Institute artist Craig Stitt has been posting quite a bit of lost video game concept art and now prototype footage of a game he pitched SEGA at first called Segapede and later renamed Astropede. Its a very interesting project since it seems Craig wanted this to be a part of the Sonic universe.

Interview with Sega Hardlight studio director Neall Jones (ChuChu Rocket Universe and Sonic Racing for Apple Arcade)

Quote
Apple Arcade gave us an opportunity to release two titles on a new service at launch, which is something we'd never done before.
We're really happy with the success of both games (ChuChu Rocket Universe and Sonic Racing for Apple Arcade).
It won't be a surprise for you to learn that Sonic has outperformed ChuChu Rocket - the movie definitely helped with our marketing!

Its funny how everyone will tell you that Sonic has sucked since it left the Dreamcast, but always ignore handheld gems like the Sonic Advance series.
Most retro fans will get angry and talk about how this is nothing like the Sonic Genesis, titles and to them I’ll say that its not suppose to be.
Its the Sonic Advance series. Being different isn’t bad.

Sonic Lost World (Wii U)
Beautiful graphics at a solid 60fps


(http://segabits.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/SLW_0430_2desert3_09-600x337.jpg)

Quote
The game is beautiful to look at. Textures have subtle patterns and occasional glossy finishes, enemies have glitter paint jobs with a metallic sheen.
What results is a world that is easy to take in as you run through the stages, but retains a level of detail that one can enjoy at slow speeds.
Items and enemies are easy to spot, and Sonic himself rarely gets lost in the world (pun intended).

SEGA Game Gear Micro Hardware Review – Bite-Sized Nostalgia

(http://segabits.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/GGM-5.jpg)

Quote
The original BLACK is the most plain yet iconic of the four and the included games reflect that classic feel.
Included are Sonic The Hedgehog, Puyo Puyo 2, OutRun and Royal Stone.
The game selection covers a variety of genres and represent some of the handheld’s best titles.
These games are also the most english-friendly, with only the RPG Royal Stone presenting a language barrier. 
If one was only interested in importing one Game Gear Micro, I would say black is the way to go. Solid game selection and an iconic color.

Of course, this could mean anything.
It could be teasing an announcement on November 3rd, or counting down 3 days till an announcement is made.
It could even be another third game entirely – perhaps a third Sonic & All Stars Racing game, or an overdue modern port of Sonic the Hedgehog 3.

Sonic games now have longer development schedules for higher quality games

Quote
While Sega used to release Sonic games on an almost yearly basis, Webber points out that the quality wasn’t at the level “it needed to be” in some cases due to rushed production schedules.
In response, a couple of years ago the teams involved decided to “put more time into things as [they] go forward”, hence the longer wait for information.

Retro Review: Sonic 3-D Blast (Saturn)
A seven week port!


(http://segabits.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/3-D-Blast-600x419.png)

Quote
Hidden in the levels, you will find Tails and Knuckles just standing around looking bored. (Tails even yawns.)
Give them 50 rings, and they will send you to what is absolutely the best part of the game, the Saturn exclusive Bonus Stage!!
For me, these stages alone are worth the price of admission.
The music is one of the most funky tunes I’ve heard in a Sonic game and the levels play like a slightly improved version of the Sonic 2 Bonus Stage.
No Tails to steal your rings, it’s a bit easier (AKA less frustrating), and the ability to roll or jump higher adds a new twist.

Navigating around levels and shooting enemy after enemy with a bunch of generic auto aiming weapons simply wasn’t fun.
All of the AI attacked you, no matter which mission you where playing, forcing you to kill everything in site regardless of whether you where trying to help one side or the other.
The slippery controls for Shadow himself and the absolutely horrid vehicles didn’t help matters.
Neither did the dark, drab, ugly looking graphics.

The environments look great for the most part and the 3-D is done really well, adding a lot of depth.
This is especially true in heavily scrolling levels like Casino Night Zone.
Models are especially well done. You can see it best when in the Special stages and in the cutscenes, which now have moving 3-D models instead of just still images.

It’s just a variant of Sonic, so it can’t be considered the third entry in the series.
In this case, we’re taking advantage of Sonic’s charisma and putting that in a pinball game, and that’s turned a good idea into a great reality."

The game allowed you not only to play as Sonic, but also Tails, Knuckles, Amy, newcomers Big the Cat, and E-102.
Each of the characters had a unique gameplay element and not just ‘Sonic with new powers’.
The game had an open world that the player could explore, players would have to find items to continue playing the game usually.
There is also Chao garden? Raising pets that used the Dreamcast’s VMU to feed and play with them on the go?
How many of you got your minds blown by that concept?

You Were All Wrong About Sonic: Unleashed

Not only is Unleashed one of the best 3D games the series has managed to push out over the years, but it's still one of the most unfairly judged and forgotten titles in the entire franchise.
From the best characters and relationships in the franchise, to the most jaw-dropping levels that pushed Sonic to the very limits of what was possible for gaming at the time, here's exactly why you were all wrong about Sonic Unleashed.

Sonic Generations is far from perfect, of course.
I mean, the jump is too floaty and there certainly could have been more zones from the hedgehog’s original quadrilogy, but for a few hours it felt like I was being introduced to the joy of Sonic all over again.

Repeat sales (of games released in the previous quarters) were strong, especially outside of Japan. The performance of new free to play titles was also solid.
Sega expects the strong performance of its video game business to continue for the rest of the fiscal year, including both repeat sales and the free-to-play segment.

Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal (3DS)
Emphasis on exploration balanced reasonably well with speedy platforming


(https://i.ibb.co/K5mMYRJ/Sonic-Boom-Shattered-Crystal.jpg)

Quote
Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal is a mixed bag, but a far better game than Rise of Lyric.
I liked the exploration aspect, and nods to Tails Adventures, as well as the characters different abilities and the game playing more like a Sonic game than Rise of Lyric ever did.
I also liked the music and the fact that the game was much more in line with the TV series.

Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice (3DS)
A Big Improvement over Shattered Crystal


(https://s12.directupload.net/images/201111/b4fey9pm.jpg)

Quote
Stages are far shorter than the sprawling 10+ minute treasure hunts that were in Shattered Crystal, this time taking anywhere from 2.5 to 6 minutes to complete depending on how much exploration you do.
While the level design is largely linear, there are diversions that lead to in-game items and circle back to the main path as well as alternate routes to the goal.

There was a High Demand for the 2D Sonic Games
Interview with Sonic Team’s Takashi Iizuka


(http://segabits.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/SOS13-Iizuka.jpg)

Quote
In addition to the main 3D series, there was a high demand for the 2D action games such as the Sonic Advance series, so we revived the old Sonic as Classic Sonic for the 20th-anniversary title, Sonic Generations.
We initially thought that it would be a 20th Anniversary project only, however after that we had a strong demand for a new classic Sonic standalone title, that became 2017’s Sonic Mania.
We would like to take good care of these two very popular iterations of Sonic’s in the future.

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed had compelling replay value, really tight gameplay and (of course) an excellent soundtrack of remixed songs.
I had a blast playing it, and I wasn't sure how the developers at Sumo Digital could surpass the quality of this game in a future installment.
I suppose Sega felt the same way, since the Sega All-Stars series has been on hiatus ever since.

In Japan, it’s definitely Virtua Racing. In addition to the sales numbers, I believe that everyone was able to see the technical capabilities of M2.
But in terms of the number of tweets, Fantasy Zone was actually more popular than Virtua Racing.
For overseas, it’s more diverse. However, in terms of sales, Sonic the Hedgehog was by far the biggest seller.
The second most popular title was OutRun – especially in Europe.

If parents of mobile game-loving kids needed another warning to turn off in-app purchases, here it is: a six-year-old Connecticut boy spent $16,000 on Sonic Forces (mobile) using his mother's credit card.
Back in June, a dad discovered his 11-year-old daughter spent almost $6,000 on Roblox.
There was also a teen who "unknowingly" spent $8,000 on one of the FIFA games, and another 11-year-old who blew almost $7,500 on microtransactions over two weeks.

Unboxing: Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog Animation Legends Blind Bag

Earlier this year, I started seeing ads for Animation Legends, a company that was selling blind bags of animation cels from a number of cartoon series from the 70s, 80s, 90s and 2000s.
The promise is that you are guaranteed to have an A rated cel (80% – 100% of a character), and the remaining cels will be randomly selected with a B (cel visibly shows less than 80% of a character) or C (cel might include parts of a character but these cels mainly include scenery or other aspects of the show) grade.

Jim Carrey just won a 'best villain' Critics Choice Award for the Sonic movie

Jim Carrey has had an absolute wild ride of a career; and life, for that matter.
But in 2020, all roads led to his role in Sonic the Hedgehog, where he brought his own signature zany humor into the character of Doctor Robotnik.
However you all collectively felt about the Olive Garden-advertisement-laden Sonic film, I think most people would agree that for what he was given, he was pretty good!

Larry King's Sonic The Hedgehog impression will live on forever in our hearts

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hd3_k-OF_aU

Quote
This, in one croaked and nasal “No one, no one caaaares about meeee,” is the genius of Larry King laid bare.
He doesn’t know who Sonic The Hedgehog is. He may have only the vaguest impression of what hedgehogs even look like.
But under the gentlest of goading from Sonic star Ben Schwartz, King simply goes for it, no self-consciousness, no second-guessing.

A "fan theory / if Speed Battle had a story" of mine is either the Phantom Ruby was shattered into many pieces, or the game consist of collecting left over Phantom Ruby prototypes. That's why the goal of eacn stage is what appears to be a Phantom Ruby Shard.

A "fan theory / if Speed Battle had a story" of mine is either the Phantom Ruby was shattered into many pieces, or the game consist of collecting left over Phantom Ruby prototypes. That's why the goal of eacn stage is what appears to be a Phantom Ruby Shard.
When the Phantom Ruby shattered, it caused two things to happen:
  • The dimensions to shatter, causing characters from other universes to appear. Such as a version of Sonic and Amy from a universe where they're baseball stars, or Sonic and Longclaw from the movie to show up.
  • Spontaneous creations of replicas (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Replica) of everyone. Including Sonic, his friends and the visiting versions of themselves from the shattered multiverse. Because of this it's difficult to identify who is a replica or who is from another dimension.
So the game consist of you racing replicas/alternate versions of others as you must collect Phantom Ruby shards to restore the dimensions and proove who is the real deal.

This storyline is too deep for a mobile game, lol.
But it's an interesting one.
It could explain lot of same characters with different version.
Guess it could be applied to Sonic Dash too.

Contrary to popular belief, nobody at Sonic Team ever used the name ‘Mr. Needlemouse’

It turns out, nobody at Sonic Team ever used the name ‘Mr. Needlemouse’. In the 1990s or at any other given time.
According to SonicJPNews, when you attempt to translate the Japanese word for ‘Hedgehog’, it’s actually possible to split the word into two. ‘hari’ means “needle”, and ‘nezumi’ means “mouse”.
But together, they compound to mean “hedgehog” (‘harinezumi’).

Thanks to Tectoy, Sega master System is the most popular console in Brazil, even until now.
So I guess Sonic being popular in Brazil is the caused effect.

Damn, I kinda late to the party.
The logo is kinda strange.
Why Sonic's fonts looks like it's shattered.
I feel like it's gonna be broken if I touch it.

I think it's like from DC Comic : Superboy Prime from Earth Prime. (Later become Superman Prime)
There are other another Superboy from another earth (earth from another dimension) : Earth 1, Earth 2, Earth 3, etc

As we know Sonic Prime is being written by Duncan Rouleau, who did give us a bit of insight into what we can expect from the TV show come 2022, including talking about possibility of future SEGA crossovers.

No, different one.
That's Conner Kent.
This Superboy Prime is Clark Kent from Earth Prime.
Earth where Superboy is the only one superhero in his universe.
Earth like ours but plus Superboy.
He's a good guy at first, but later become one of the main antagonist of Infinite Crisis.
He murdered many members of Teen Titans on that event.
One of the scariest DC villain because of his unstable emotion but with such power, nobody can predict him.

The 'Sonic Prime' show is aimed for kids so there is no way Sonic going that route.
But the core may be same, Sonic is from earth prime / universe prime and then traveled to multiverse and met Sonic from other universe.

I think SEGA agreed to that concept recently is also because Sonic 30th Anniversary is nearing.
They need all exposure they can get.

That video is based from 4chan, so take it with a grain of salt.
Also here more the leaks that spread from 4chan :

1. SA1 and 2 ports (was supposed to be remakes, but stuff happened)
2. New Sonic game (Sonic Legend?) may get pushed past 30th anniversary. Combining Lost world and Forces. No old villains, aside from Eggman. New villain is introduced. Classic Sonic returns, but this time as an unlockable, as far as I can tell, not so much a part of the story.
3. Crush 40 was brought on to redo "Open Your Heart" and "Live and Learn", but this may just be added to the next CD, because remake got shafted for ports.
4. Chao Garden was a sh!t show for the remakes, as prior code was lost and coder could not be contacted, so be happy your pet sim did not have to shit the bed.
5. Chao garden will not return in new games, but Chao make cameos. Will get their own mobile game in time.
6. Music is on point, as per usual. Graphics are fine. Aesthetic is colorful, pops like cell shading. Cubic trees from Forces make a return, from stage I saw.
7. New VAs already cast for show. Might be in new game too
8. Few fan VAs have been contacted under NDA.

Ugh some of these supposed leaks are horrible and hope they are false.
Though if there will be a remake of the Adventure games I do agree how difficult it would be to revise the Chao Gardens. I have a few ideas and sollutions myself but I don't have a say in Sega.

According to SEGASammy, the quarter in the Consumer Entertainment segment has “significantly exceeded the previous forecast”, specifically thanks to free-to-play titles for mobile phones (Sonic Forces: Speed Battle, Sonic Dash, i.e.) and pre-orders from Persona 5 Strikers which will be launched in the West during the fourth fiscal quarter.
SEGASammy also confirmed that the quarterly performance from the Consumer Entertainment segment was the best they had since the pandemic started, with strong performances not only in the Full Game area, but in others as well.

Yeah, not just Sonic Team but also SEGA Hardlight (Sonic mobile games) and SEGA Europe (Sonic ports on Steam).
And about the rise of the sales number ....
In October 2020 Sonic the Hedgehog 2 was given away for free on Steam and those numbers are counted.
It seems like this was planned to boost Sonic's sales number for Sonic 30th Anniversary.

Yeah, and they also counted Sonic Dash and Sonic Forces mobile game download numbers as sale numbers.
It's like SEGA wanted Sonic to be at the top of SEGA's franchise.
It's still behind Total War and Football Manager before, but now it's at the top.

(https://i.ibb.co/Wz51sYm/SEGA-series.jpg)

(https://s12.directupload.net/images/201106/z7yp5ea6.jpg)

The Big Three is still the same, but the order has changed.
May be because Sonic is SEGA's original creation (while Total War and Football Manager were from acquisition)
so they wanted it to be the top.

Eeeh Sonic Dash and Speed Battle rely on micro-transactions though. That really isn't a possitive image to base sale numbers on though.

Like, remember the reason Super Sonic wasn't included in Sonic Forces was because Sega planned a paid DLC for it? The backlashed force their hand to make it free.

If Avatar becomes a reoccuring character, who's to say there won't be cosmetics and wispons that require special currency (Like Star Gems or ArksCash) that requires Mummy's credit card to get.

Yeah, not a positive image for fans, but investors looked on number.

SEGA : We need you to be sponsor of Sonic 30th Anniversary. Sonic is our best franchise.
Investors : Sonic? But according to your latest annual report, Total War has the best unit sales number.
SEGA : ....

This conversation won't be happened now since Sonic is at the top.

Yeah but either the investors will ask how Sega get the numbers up and might even support the method for profit, or Sega would think it's okay to get investors this way which may lead to more paid content in their Sonic games.

It's like telling your child to eat all their vegetables only for them to feed it to the dog while you're not looking. If they get away with it the first few times then they may see it as an efficient way to keep at it.

If Sega wants Sonic to have higher sale numbers and attract good investments... they could just make better Sonic games.

Gotta go fast.

Even fans don't ask where this sales number jump come from.
Sales with the price of zero is still considered purchasing on Steam so it's not like they're lying.

We're bound to get a major release for the 30th anniversary. I just hope it won't be as "Meh" as Sonic Forces and be more well put together than it. But if it's gonna be a banger they may need outside help for it. After all Sonic Mania wouldn't of been successful without Headcannon.

My concern is that this may lead to a force of habbit that will cripple the effort of quality put into Sonic games. If Sega makes another mediocre or poor Sonic game that doesn't make the sales and Sega will have to resort in boosting counts with micro transactions from mobile games and freebies that everyone already have just to get investors, who's to say they won't do it again next time they need investors or keep at it?

With the arcade market not doing so good due to the pandemic, SegaSammy are turning their attention to the mobile gaming market and that will mean less interest in the console/PC gaming market. If Sega needs investors to make sure Sonic stays relevent but it's Sonic Dash and Speed Battle that's keeping him afloat over the actual games they're suppose to market like Sonic Forces and Team Sonic Racing then SegaSammy may shift Sega's interest to the mobile market leaving Console and PC gamers dry.

Dmitri Johnson, who co-produced Sonic under his company dj2 Entertainment, was involved in the movie's on-again-off-again production since 2012.

"Shortly after that, the incoming calls definitely increased from studios [and] networks saying, 'Hey, whaddya got next?'"

Yeah, that news was revealed in February’s issue of Total Licensing Australia magazine.
Since it's on the reputable magazine, most likely it's true.

Aw.. It would be cool if Sega made a virtual convention hall or concert and VR players can attend the crowed. Maybe in VRChat which has become a rather public VR service.

Heck Lil X Nas held a concert in Roblox of all places. But I know sometimes Phantasy Star Online 2 have special guess characters non-canon to PSO2 lore, such as Hatsune Miku, so they can do it there as well I guess.

Steamforged stealth-dropped news about the upcoming Sonic The Card Game at the very bottom of a list of their upcoming releases as part of the virtual GAMA festival currently going on.
The drop doesn't give away many details about the game itself, but we know it's going to be a cross between card game and race, something that makes a lot of sense considering 'gotta go fast' is Sonic's main tagline.

I think it's because it is in a constand state of development. It still works and has all it's features but there's always room for improvement. Honestly, it be nice if the Avatar menu has a search function. Would save me the trouble of having to find Avatars I like by browsing worlds all the time. It's a hassle.

I once had ideas for a Sonic card game. I dunno what I did with it. All I remember is that gold rings serve as "life points" for the player and that each card had Attacks or Abilities to pull off.
I gave up on the idea and now making a card game for Alex Kidd.

I wonder if the new card game will simply be the Sonic X Trading Card Game (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Sonic_X_Trading_Card_Game) but based on the games? Or maybe it will cover the various spin-off continuities also.

According to Techraptor, it's possible that the card game might follow a similar vein to Sonic Crash Course (https://kotaku.com/sonic-crash-course-the-kotaku-review-1831565488), another family-friendly Sonic game that tasks players with racing each other on the tabletop. So may be cards x board game is also possible.

SEGASammy expects "Sonic Prime" to “strengthen” Sonic IP

(https://i.makeagif.com/media/1-19-2018/cNwg-J.gif)

Quote
Yoichi Owaki, Senior Vice-President of SEGA SAMMY HOLDINGS INC.:
"About “Sonic Prime”, we’re not thinking of monetizing by itself.
Our stance is to implement the “Sonic Prime” as part of strengthening the IP."

The fact SOnic Prime is about franchise recognition over monetizating makes me wonder if they will do the whole AoSTH, SatAM dimension hop thing.

AoSTH and Boom may be,
but I doubt for SatAM since SEGA ditched all SatAM related (that explored a lot by Archie Comics) in IDW Comic version.
Probably they want to avoid more lawsuit over Sonic like the one with Ken Penders before.

Sonic, Amy, and Tails are Trapped in Eggman's Version of Battleworld

(https://i.ibb.co/cQT1fTS/Fascinating.jpg)

Quote
Eggman's manipulation of physics, to the point of creating entirely new and completely different places within a single tower, feels like Dr. Doom's Battleworld from Marvel's 2015 Secret Wars series by Jonathan Hickman, Esad Ribić and Ive Svorcina.
Whilst Sonic's world has always been a varied one, it still had a scale of change similar to our own Earth, nothing quite as patchwork as Battleworld.

I doubt they would ditch SatAM. SatAM is just too important to most Sonic fans of the cartoons. Plus Penders don't own any of the characters in SatAM given they're all before his era and they made it over to post-SGW. The only reason I can imagine Sega would be against SatAM in Prime would be eww, naked chipmunk!

Not from Penders, avoiding "lawsuit over Sonic like the one with Ken Penders before."
Someone from SatAM creative team could always just showed up and claim they're the one who creates the characters.
Remember how SEGA avoided releasing Sonic 3 after Michael Jackson died?
(Last ones, Steam version and NDS version, were released when he was still alive)
Michael Jackson would have no problem with SEGA releasing the game over and over again since they are always in good term.
The problem was after he died.
Whom the music that Michael created's right belongs to?
The Jackson estate lawyers or the six composers who worked for four weeks alongside Jackson (Brad Buxer, Bobby Brooks)?

Legal battle is tiring.
If they could avoid that, they would avoid that.

If it's a matter of who legally owns SatAM, that would be DiC wouldn't it? DiC was aquired by Cookie Jar, who eventually become WildBrain, the same studio making Sonic Prime.
So even if Sega doesn't have full rights to SatAM, they could still commision WildBrain who have a share of those rights to include DiC-era Sonic cartoons into Prime.

Probably, but there must be a reason why SEGA forbid IDW comic writers uses SATAM characters on the newest Sonic comic series.
May be they think better to make new characters than to use them, and all new characters (Starline, Belle, Rough, Tumble, Mimic, Whisper, Tangle) so far are great addition to the stroyline.

Belle the Tinkerer is cute though. And honestly there are background characters throughout IDW whom I be more curious to learn their stories. Like Lanolin the Sheep.

From the Archie comics, I kinda like Mammoth Mogul.
Too bad Penders' lawsuit would later inspire fellow former writer Scott Fulop to pursue legal action against Archie for unauthorized use of his characters including Mammoth Mogul.
Consider him gone then.

A Sonic Colours remaster?
That's literally the only Sonic game that no one is asking for a remaster of! Way to spit in the face of the Adventure fans Sega.

Though it will probably be likely simply the same Sonic Colours game, just with the controls readapted for the Switch and the stages extended and that's all. Even as a hardcore Sonic fan as myself, even I wouldn't bother buying a Switch over it.

Not true.
There are a lot asking of Sonic Colours for Steam after Sonic Lost World released for Steam back then.
I guess the decision is for PC gamers first with console gamers later in mind, even if it will be released on console first.
Total Wars and Football Managers numbers may be a factor for that decision.

Put simply, it’s a more basic version of Sonic Drift where players raced against each other in the S1 Grand Prix mode via network connectivity on Sonic Cafe.
When you’re tired of being pitted against each other, players can also race against the best times on the network in a Time Attack mode.
High scores were uploaded to the Cafe for others players to see and race against.

At a speed befitting of the spikey blue hedgehog himself, director Jeff Fowler has confirmed that Sonic the Hedgehog 2 has wrapped filming in Vancouver.
It only feels like five minutes ago that Sonic the Hedgehog was collecting all of the gold rings as one of the last pre-pandemic blockbusters, making $319M globally just as the world began to shutdown.

Say hello to Bongo, the monkey mascot of Danimals, a brand of yoghurt aimed at young kids.
He's coming to Sonic Dash thanks to a promotion involving special Danimals products, including yoghurt pouches and smoothies.
By purchasing these products, players can unlock Bongo as a playable character in the game; simply scan the QR code on the back of the packs to download Sonic Dash and then complete the tutorial level, and all kinds of simian-related tomfoolery can be yours.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 movie plot synopsis released

(http://segabits.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/EzdA3IqX0Awc_lo-750x500.jpg)

Quote
The movie very much appears to use elements of the third Sonic game and its add-on Sonic & Knuckles, while also featuring the debut of Tails who appeared only in a post-credits scene in the original film.
Also worth noting, Tom and Maddie leaving on a vacation is likely to see them off screen for much of the film, a common trope in sequels when they want to shift focus to other characters.

New Jade Wisp and "Game Over" No More in Sonic Colors Ultimate
(Famitsu Interview with Takashi Iizuka and Kazuyuki Hoshino)


(https://i.ibb.co/Qn8STGs/Segabits-Sonic-Colors-Ultimate.jpg)

Quote
Iizuka: Since the output power of consoles and televisions has gotten better since then, there’s that.
But the biggest change was removing the old life system.
“Game Over” as we know it, doesn’t fit with the current context for gameplay, so this time players can play it unlimitedly without worrying how many times they fail.
Going even further, since it’s an action platforming game, if you fail to jump, you could fall in a bottomless pit and commit an error, but we have added the function of “Tails Save” to help the player.

Tweek also moved Sonic up to S-tier.
The blue hedgehog is often placed in B-tier, but the Wolf and Pokemon Trainer player said on his podcast that Sonic has the "best win condition in the game."
Tweek explained that once Sonic has the lead on an opponent, Sonic players can simply just run around and hold onto the win since most opponents can't chase him down.

SMT Liberation DX2 Adds Sonic as a ‘Demon’

(https://sega.jp/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/210625_2_0.jpg)

Quote
He is a “Speedster,” which means battle speed is increased by 50% for him. He also has the unique passive Supersonic Hedgehog, which lets him survive a deadly attack with 1 HP, starts a chain effect, and makes his next physical attack a critical hit.
You can also use 5MP to make him perform a Spin Dash to deal four-hits of physical damage to a random group of enemies. It gets the Force Pierce effect if Might is in effect. Sonic also resists wind (Garu) elemental attacks.

Sega designer tells the origin story of a gaming legend

In an interview with TechRadar, Yasuhara explains how he iterated on this turbocharged figure and the hyperreal world he was destined to inhabit: “I was thinking of making the characters something that children could draw and scribble. Simple, with circles, triangles and jagged lines.
The green ground and tender slopes were based on my memories of the Japanese countryside where I spent my summer vacations as a child.
The idea for enemies were also based on my own memories. I think I made a game out of the fun I experienced as a kid.”

I'm still not entirely sure how I feel about 1-ups being phazed from use. Ben a staple since Sonic 1 after all. I'm hoping they'll do it like Crash Bandicoot remakes and make lives optional.

And those Tails Saves look goofy. They could of made him a playable character but instead have this? Again, I hope there will be options to play SC:U like the original Colours game.

With the addition of infinite lives it kind of makes Tails Saves sort of reduntant. Like the only places I imagine where Tails Saves would be useful would be in places where I imagine it be useful would be Asteroid Coaster but I can't see much platform where Tails can place Sonic if he falls.

If the level is too long, I think having Tails save in the middle is a great addition.
Infinite lives still means you have to start from the beginning of the level when you die, right?

I really want to log into Minecraft, get involved and play! But I can't...

Because I have a "Legacy account" which means it's a former Mojang account that needs to be migrated into a Microsoft account.
The alternative I buy Minecraft again, but why should I if I already got it?

Also I forgot my password again. I usually don't forget my password but I changed it to something else because it wouldn't let me in the first place.

For mobile, PS Vita, and PC.
They asked again for Switch version but I finally said no. Three is enough.

Having broken away from Dr. Eggman, Dr. Starline has been busy constructing his own dastardly plan for world domination.
What exactly he has planned is still unknown, but his solo series, Sonic the Hedgehog: Bad Guys by Ian Flynn, Jack Lawrence, Aaron Hammerstrom, Bracardi Curry and Leonardo Ito, gave ample insight into what the mad doctor has been up to.

Yeah, it made me think that ... did SEGA already had rights for Sanic?
Since Sanic was also showing up in Sonic movie.
I "think" Sega owes a degree of rights to all Sonic fan characters, but they can't use them because... well, Sega can't use them because they're half-original and the fan's can't use them for profit because they're half-Sonic characters if that makes sense.
Sanic however they can use because as far as I'm aware YouTuber 0nyxheart made no ownership claim to Sanic and I don't think they legally could because it's just a badly drawn Sonic. Sega can use Sanic because... it's a badly drawn Sonic.

I myself dunno how I feel about Sanic. Ever since Sonic Colours the games just feel... I dunno, I'm still a Sonic fan and I want to stay loyal to Sonic until I'm done with life, but ever since Colours it feels like Sonic Team think "No one takes Sonic seriously, so why should we?" sort of attitude and went ahead to emphasize the toung-in-cheek humour the games usually have to just cringe.

It's why I am not at all hyped, psyked or even care at all about Sonic Colours: Ultimate. It's the game where the Sonic series embraced it's self-joking meme culture when I'd rather have more thought-out dialogue like the Adventure games or Unleashed had. Why don't Sonic Adventure or Sonic Unleashed get the Ultimate treatment? Seems unfair to me.
Title: Re: Sonic The Hedgehog - A Little Ball of Energy in an Extremely Handsome Package

I still think Sonic Colours: Ultimate is the way SEGA compromize due to the fact that they can't get Sonic Rangers (or whatever the title of Sonic's new game will be) in 2021 where Sonic 30th anniversarry's happened.
They at least want 2021 get a Sonic game, so that's why they add remastered of past Sonic game.

But they could of still given any other game the Ultimate treatment but they chose Sonic Colours instead. There are fans who are tired of Sonic being more of a goof than he usually is, tired of the wisps, tired of Sonic Team treating their own franchise as a meme. They call it the "Meta-era" and say it started with Sonic Colours, and they want it to end.

Instead we're back at the beginning with even more wisps and SOnic's cringy midlife crisis attitude and Baldy McNosehair jokes.

Yes there are, but there are more lot of fans who haven't played Sonic Colors due it's only released on 1 console, and still has no PC version.
So I still think the choice is really well made.

Do I really want Sonic Colors get remastered? No, I already play the game a lot back then.
But I know a lot of my friends do, since they never got to own Wii before.

I know, I wouldn't want to take it away from anyone who hasn't played Sonic Colours before, especially given it was exclusive to the Wii... But they could of just made it a direct export to PC like they did with Sonic Lost World? Why aren't the other ported games good enough for a remake like Colours was?

They can't. I remember reading in the interview that Wii's structure is too different compared to other consoles. Many many adjustment had to be made.
Other ported games ... already had PC version so they're not their first priority.

I guess. Checking the Sonic games on Wii that explains why there has been no other adaption of a wii game... Which is a pity because would love Storybook games on the PC... if control-scheme is worked out.

Well I said my piece on the matter. Nothing I can do about it other than my choice whenever to get SC:U or not.

Gaming magazine Retro Gamer released a Sonic 30th Anniversary themed issue last July, and in it contains some interesting nuggets of information on the history of Sonic, as well as some hints towards what’s next for the blue blur.
In the interview, Sonic Team leader Takashi Iizuka stated that after a successful run with Sonic Generations and most recently Sonic Mania, Classic Sonic would hopefully continue to be featured in the future.

Classic Sonic in Generations was suppose to be a one-off and Sonic Mania was suppose to be his own game. And by Sonic Forces fans have made it quite clear they feel Classic Sonic has overstayed his welcome.

If Classic Sonic (as well as Green Hill Zone) has non-canon cameo apperances in later Sonic games then sure, that's fine. But Classic Sonic is suppose to be Sonic's past and the past should remain the past. It goes against the "keep moving for4ward" attitude the whole series has had. We're not Super Mario fans, we don't get nostalgia-high over every time World 1-1 or N64 castle get's a remake.
Title: Re: Sonic The Hedgehog - A Little Ball of Energy in an Extremely Handsome Package
Post by: Berto on August 17, 2021, 07:03:52 pm
Yeah, Classic Sonic is suppose to be Sonic's past, we supposed to be moving on.
But after Sonic Mania's success (both in sales and reviews), I can't blame them if they decided him to stay.
Title: Re: Sonic The Hedgehog - A Little Ball of Energy in an Extremely Handsome Package
Post by: Mystic Monkey on August 17, 2021, 07:29:08 pm
Sonic Mania is so popular not because Classic Sonic was in the game, but because the whole game is suppose to emulate the Classic-era of Sonic games right down to the 16-bit (well, more 32-bit) graphics. Although Classic Sonic's inclusion to the game would of been necessary.
As for his involvement in Sonic Forces, everyone thought he was redundant by then and had enough of Classic Sonic being involved in so many things.

But typical Sega-neurotypical fashion they respond to what they see than what it is.
Title: Re: Sonic The Hedgehog - A Little Ball of Energy in an Extremely Handsome Package
Post by: Berto on August 17, 2021, 11:34:59 pm
Still if there's a new game or cameo in other game, be it's classic or modern Sonic, I'd welcome any of it regardless.
Just don't force it to have both of them in the same game like Sonic Forces again.

Quote
"When I joined the SOR4 project, Olivier Deriviere and the other composers involved had already taken liberties that redefined SOR music, using more modern and even acoustic elements which were impossible to recreate on a Sega Genesis, so I continued further down that path by adding even more outlandish features; heavy metal, trap, dub, jungle and other elements we hadn’t heard in a Streets of Rage game before.
I took lots of inspiration from classic SOR music, but also from old movies, modern music and pop culture media."

When Sonic Colours first came out, I thought the game made Sonic more obnoxious than before. If Sonic Colours: Ultimate would have him at his most obnoxious then I won't buy it.

Kinda wish there was no dialogue in it.

This one I'm 100% agree.
As for me Sonic Mania Adventure, Team Sonic Racing Overdrive, and Chao in Space have a charm because there was no dialogue on them.
Kinda like watching old Disney's cartoon.

(Forums so slow, by the time the page loaded up it logged me out! Had to log back in again.)

While Sonic has always had an attitude they may make him come off as snarky and impatient at times he was never the sort to come off as rude to others. And that whenever he is aware there are others upset or in tears then his more compassionate side will show where he will listen to what's upsetting them and will do what he can to help them, wanting others just to be as happy and as easy as he got it in life.

While Sonic Colours Sonic is still willing to save the wisps, it feels he's doing it more for the glory and for the thrill of it... I mean yeah, that's a quality I like about him but it's not something Sonic prioritizes in when it comes to crisis. He knows he can do this, he has confidence but that doesn't mean he should be an arrogant prick about it. He's like those obnoxious YouTubers, the sort that have made millions off YouTube and use that money to go places, buy fancy things and  ostupid stuff because the personality they developed for their adult life consist of "likes and subscribes".

To sum it up, here is a comparison between the most memorable cutscene in Unleashed with the most memorable cutscene in Colours.

In term of story I agree, Unleashed is better portrayal of Sonic than Colors.
But in gameplay I have to go with Colors.
Wisps do add new element to gameplay compared to werehog mode.

I think Sonic's still sometimes kinda rude.
To Eggman, and other enemies of course.
He loves to mock them.

Sonic being rude to bad guys is understandable. They're bad guys. Sonic being rude to others is a sometimes thing, often those times they don't take offense to it. But I rarely see Sonic be rude to those who are crying. USually Sonic is the one who tries to cheer them up and assure them he'll save the day. While Sonic did promise he'll help the jade wisp's friends I was still taken aback by the attitude towards it.

How would you feel if your family andf loved ones were kidnapped by terrorist, that you were genuinely upset and to tears about this... and I just yawn in your face?

Sonic's just impatient, that's all.
And if the guy who yawn in your face could save them, then you'd bear it no matter how annoyed you are.

I guess, but it would be a huge red flag if they are the kind of person who are capable of saving lives but have little interest in how you feel about it.

Like a "I will be a hero because it amuses me", and not in a charming OnePunch Man sort of way.

Sonic in game is rarely rude, that might be true.
But in comic (Fleetway), he was really that rude and far from charming.
Still make me laugh somehow back then when he acted like that.

"When we worked on Sonic The Hedgehog 3, the development team was in the suburbs of San Francisco, Calif., and the Sega Sound Team I belonged to was in Tokyo. I never met lead programmer Yuji Naka, lead designer Hirokazu Yasuhara, and Sonic 3 designer and current head of Sonic Team Takashi Iizuka in person during the development process at that time.
It was a unique experience in that era that we sent the DAT tapes by airmail to the development team for their reviewing and received their impressions via fax."

Believe me when I say that no other franchise comes close.
Dredge deep through the muck of Reddit, and you might turn up some questionable Zelda-themed smut.
Cheeky Pokémon pin-ups are out there, if you know where to look, and the parasocial love affairs encouraged by role-playing games like Persona and Mass Effect have left many gamers aching with lust deep into the night.
But Sonic remains completely unthreatened in his erotic superiority.

Sonic Colors: Ultimate Review – Reach for the Stars in HD (PlayStation 4)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dL5AlXKHjII (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dL5AlXKHjII)

Quote
Ultimate is a remaster done right.
The original game is intact and is given a graphical and gameplay lift through a much needed visual boost and unobtrusive additions.
The frustrations of the original game remain.
You will still curse whenever you miss a platform thanks to Sonic’s slippery controls and inadvertent boosting, but to fix this would be to fundamentally change the game and I can’t fault Ultimate for that.

It's being developed with Godot, a free and open source engine, not with hedgehog engine.
Even the lead dev was really surprised since the engine was not meant for big companies to use unless it was modified a lot.
May be that's why.

The glitches mostly was found (famously by TWIP) on PS4 version, right?
Heard no issues on Switch version (that only run on 30 fps), the version that I would get because of its portability feature.
All reviews for Switch seem good and they never mention any bug.

I don't have any modern consoles so my best bet would be Steam. But even still I am rather indecisive to get the game. Other than dressing up Sonic like mardi gra I don't really want to go through the anguish that was the original Sonic Colours again. Having to pass six acts per planet, most of those acts being worse stage designs than Sonic Forces. Uuuugh.

It's reat to see IDW give Tails his time to shine, even if this story isn't as ambitious as the fate Archie Comics awarded the young freedom fighter.
While fans of Sonic the Hedgehog's comic lineage have long known that Tails is no joke, Sonic the Hedgehog #43 offers concrete evidence that without him, there are challenges that even the Blue Blur wouldn't be able to overcome.

Sonic and Tails Face Off Against Their Evil Twins In New Miniseries

IDW just announced that Sonic the Hedgehog and Tails will fight against their evil doppelgängers in a new four-issue miniseries called Imposter Syndrome leading up to the main Sonic series' monumental 50th issue.
The publisher didn't divulge that much about these new villains except to say that Dr. Eggman's former fanboy-turned-traitor Dr. Starline most likely created them.
It also implied that Sonic's twin is a girl.

I'm concerned that all the backlash from how buggy the game was will cause Sonic's reputation to dip again. I don't want to go back to an internet where it was trendy to openly criticize and hate Sonic.

Weird, I don't find any bugs or glitches at all, but I'm only playing the game casually.
I know some person that posted the glitches playing it illegally using yuzu (a switch emulator), at least one person admit it after getting caught.
Similar glitches on real hardware can be caused by switching planets very fast causing memory overload.
I mean.. why the hell did you do that? You won't see them if you play normally.
Most of reviewers don't find them too because they play normally.

I heard the Switch version of the game was the most glitchiest that Nintendo offered refunds for the game.

To be fair, Nintendo versions of major games were always inferior.

It has the lowest spec afterall. Guess making it 30fps was still not enough.

That's true. The thing is ... Nintendo version was always the one which sold most.
Even the inferior version of Sonic Generations on 3DS outsold its original PS3 version.
This is why all Sonic games after that is either multiplatforms (including Nintendo system) or Nintendo system exclusive.
Kinda make me worried to Sonic Rangers, since making it playable enough on Switch seems to restrict the game's potential.

You'dd probably regard me still bitter over living through the "console war" and seeing Sega loose to Nintendo and all... but I still never trusted Sega's relations with Nintendo. To be clear I won't deny that Sega are not entirely at fault for most of their shortcomings but I still believe that their post-war "friendship" isn't entirely sunshine and daises.

Take the "partnership" Sega had with Nintendo in 2013. A "partnership" implies that both parties agree to work together and take equal responsibility for any failures or shortcomings. So Sega and Nintendo had a partnership for the development of three games for the Wii U: Sonic Lost World, Mario & Sonic 2014 Winter Olympics and Rise of Lyric.

In development, Sonic Lost World was intended to be a "110% Sonic game"... yet why does it feel like Nintendo had sway in it's development? Why does the whole game feel like it's trying to brown-nose with Nintendo? Why are most of it's DLCs Nintendo themed? It's a game everyone thought was more like a Super Mario game than a Sonic game.

Then there was Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric. Yes it's Sega's fault for it's development but did Nintendo helped their "partner" at all to make sure Rise of Lyric would work on their console?

So anyway, we all know how bad Rise of Lyric turned out to be. Given this game was released in partnership with Nintendo, I guess that mean Nintendo are just as equal to blame for the quality of the game as Sega right?... right?NAH! IT'S ANOTHER BAD SONIC GAME! WHAT YOU EXPECT FROM SEGA? Nintendo's hands were clean from it.
And no one complained that much over Sonic Lost World because it was more like a Mario game than a Sonic game.
As for the Winter Olympic game, it had Super Mario in it.

It just pisses me off that Nintendo were quick to forget the partnership when Sega failed to provide quality games for their failing console. To throw them under the bus.

Now Nintendo are the first to offer refunds for thew Switch version of Sonic Colours: Ultimate thinking it make them look more responsible than Sega despite the fact the provided screenshots were taken from an emulator and that the Switch verison just need some patchwork done.

*Sigh* Imagine living on a timeline where Sega would of beaten Nintendo at the console war. Where they become the multi-billion dollar company Nintendo is now. But we'll never know.

Nintendo's definitely ain't a saint but it still takes two to tango.
SEGA's still at fault for its quality check insurance.
Real glitches may be minor but the fact that they exist .. it's kinda make it worse than Sonic Forces or Lost World that have no such problems at launch.

I'd still blame those click and bait content creators that are using review copy to find the glitches, not to review them.
Once it gets many likes , the domino effects started.
Others want to jump in too, even if they have to sell their soul to satan (https://megamitensei.fandom.com/wiki/Satan) by making fake glitches or using emulator.
Hopefully they get their karma later.

Way I see it, Sega are the underdogs. Underdogs are not the bad guys but can make mistakes and sometimes the underhanded decisions in their struggles to get to the top, but not entirely bad guys. I'm aware of the abuse the developers went through for some of their projects, I'm even aware of their ties with crime (as this Nintendo article (https://www.nintendolife.com/news/2015/11/rumour_leading_japanese_game_company_kidnapped_devs_sister_to_stop_them_from_working_with_nintendo) said) They made mistakes but I know they're not entirely bad.

Nintendo however, everyone treats them as the god-company of the Video Game industry. That Shigeru Miyamoto only poops gold. That Nintendo owners are usually the wealthiest men in Japan. That they're absolute perfection.
That if the game involves Mario it's 10/10, ★★★★★, Masterpiece!

Heck "Super Nintendo World" has little to do with Nintendo and just Super Mario narcism... I mean yeah, I see how hypocritical I am given I wish Sonic had something like Super Nintendo World... But Sonic could of had a theme park, but Mario only got one because Jesus himself owned a NES or something.

I know that given Sega stepped down from the console market that they will no longer be on the same platform as Microsoft, Sony or Nintendo. But I still wish Sega would be a challenge to Nintendo again someday, esecially given it was during the console war that encouraged both Nintendo and Sega to do their best.

They were underdogs, that's for sure.
But now SEGA aren't underdogs anymore.
They're one of famous game publishers.
Twice as best publisher of the year on Metacrictic.

Well.. not everyone. I had many friends who are Playstation fans that hate Nintendo.
The first ones to share all bad news about Nintendo on Facebook.
Even attack me for choosing Switch version of Sonic Colors Ultimate, lol.
Sharing all news that said Switch version was the glitchiest version of all.
I can't hate them though.
Since oddly enough, they love Yakuza, Persona, and Shin Sakura Wars more than I do.

That's kinda hard since Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games is best-selling gaming character cross-over franchise ever.
Abandoning this would mean they'd lose tons of money potential.

They could still have their Olympic games. I'm just saying it be nice if Sega and Nintendo were as competitive as Coca-Cola and Pepsi. I mean whenever one cola company makes adverts bashing the other their must be consent from both sides, Coca-cola and Pepsi probably know their "rivalry" is marketable for the both of them.

Another reason why it be bad for Sega to return to the console market would that not only would it cost more to mass produce consoles but would also mean Sega games will no longer be multi-platform which makes Sonic and other Sega games accessable to those without specific consoles. It's why I never bothered buying a Switch, XBox X/S or PS5 because my PC is still good for Sonic games.

But still... Nintendo is a multi-million dollar company, and despite making games exclusively for their consoles they're.... well, of 2021 third to Sony and "Tencent", some chinese video game company I never heard of until now, in revenue. SegaSammy are in ninth place. So props to them for making the top 10. Just be nice if Sega were one of the titans that would make Nintendo regard Sega more on equals like they were in the '90s.

I know, just something aesthetically pleasing about Sega consoles. What instead of a proper console, they make a small form factor (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Small_form_factor_(desktop_and_motherboard)) gaming PC (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaming_PC)? Just like VALVe's Steam Machine (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steam_Machine_(hardware_platform)). It's not exactly a console, more of a specific-made gaming PC with a unique operating system. Sega could bring back Sega Channel (https://segaretro.org/Sega_Channel) over it.

No, they're not coming. At least not Lost Judgment.

The fallout stems from Johnny & Associates (the talent agency behind Takayuki Yagami actor Takuya Kimura) not wanting the Judgment games to launch for PC.
The company doesn’t want Kimura’s face to be so readily accessible on the internet.
Maybe they aren’t happy having it on a platform that could easily be modded and ruin Takuya Kimura’s image.
Since he is a huge boy band, its obvious that these talent agencies are over bearing and controlling.

I believe same things happened for Hatsune Miku: Project Diva.
May be Crypton Future Media doesn't want their beloved mascot, Hatsune Miku, could easily be modded into nude version or something like that.

Call them conservative or over protective, but that's how Japanese-centric companies are.

Back when NDS Sonic games were good... up until Sonic Colours for the N3DS.

Sonic Colours for the NDS is kinda better than Sonic Colours Wii (and Colours Ultimate of course) in term of ending.
In Wii version, the game's ended after fighting Nega Wisps Armored Eggman.
But in NDS version, after defeating Nega Wisps Armored Eggman, Sonic still has to go to full "Super Sonic" mode to fight 'Mother of All Wisps' who went berserk due receiving many negative energies.
NDS version also features other Sonic's friends (Blaze, Rouge, Shadow, Amy, Silver, etc) while in Wii version the game only features Sonic and Tails.

I just didn't like the Wii version that much, as I am sure I bit into before. But the NDS version was way better.

My advice is, wait until others test the waters first before diving right in.

As for me ... I already finished the game, Lol.
Even before the patch came up.
Never encountered any glitches and bugs, but I was playing in handheld mode all the time.
The game's sure looks pretty in handheld mode.

Not gonna touch it again for a while though.
I'm playing Warioware Get It Together now...

Most of those glitches were found by players manhandling the game. As much as I don't like Sonic Colours as it is, I don't think it deserved the degree of backlash it got from it's release.

Youtube videos that share the glitches were put in the articles of gamesites,
which means more views for them and free publication for their youtube account.
They'll be motivated to do that again when new Sonic games come out later.

It is. Some of those glitch-reporting vidos were just players who just wanted to point them out for Sega to fix than anything bias against them. But those gamesite articles take those videos (without permissions likely) and use them as slander against Sega.

I think it's likely that Sonic Team will put more effort in quality control in the next Sonic game (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Untitled_2022_Sonic_game) but even if they produce a solid piece of gold, gamesites who find it "trendy to hate Sonic" will likely poop all over it.

But while Sonic Team are not the same Sonic Team as before (it was kind of a lie for them to say Sonic Forces was made by the same team that brought Sonic Generations and Sonic Colours. It's kind of like a "Trigger's broom (http://y2u.be/LAh8HryVaeY)" sort of thing) I still believe they are capable of making a great Sonic game like they did for Generations and I have a feeling that this game may bring in a new "era" of Sonic to us all.

It's just "so cool" to hate Sonic, just like people back then to hate Justin Biebers, or to hate Michael jackson in the 90s.
People who did this really need to get a life.

I always wondered why not use Dragon Engine to make Sonic games, Sonic in Yakuza-like world would be somewhat close to Sonic Adventure 3.
And then I remember ... Dragon Engine isn't compatible with Switch.
That's why Yakuza games and Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown aren't showing up on Switch.
That's why Super Monkey Ball was made with Unity, not Dragon Engine, since its main target is Switch.
Switch compability were indeed limiting SEGA / Sonic Team's decision.

When I played Yakuza 0 for the first time I had strong Station Square vibes... probably because of the shop windows which use optical illusions to look spacious but really just a panel behind gass window.

Not just in Colors, but in IDW Comic series, Lost World, and Sonic Forces too.
Have you forgotten The Adventure, '06 and Unleashed games? Humans are present on Sonic's world. My fantheory/headcanon is that humans simply outpopulate mobians by a lot.

A long time a go (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Early_Sonic_canon), it was believed that Sonic games take place on an alien planet with Dr. Eggman as the only human. Japanese manuals never refered to it directly but western manuals called it Mobius. Over time the name Mobius caught on with the early cartoons at the time.

By Dreamcast, the established lore was thrown out for a revised lore saying Mobius was never a thing and that Sonic lives on Earth. However unlike our Earth (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth), this Earth (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Earth) had different geography, advance human cultures, various phenomena and an eldritch Cthulian horror (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Dark_Gaia) sleeping within the heart of the planet.
Since Dreamcast, this has caused somewhat of a division between how Sonic fans prefer their games, this division wouldn't be "propely labeled" until Sonic Generations introduce the eras. But it's mostly accepted that Sonic games have always taken place on an alternate paralell Earth different from ours.

At least, that was what was established up until Sonic Colours when in an interview Takashi Iizuka said that Sonic's world and Earth has always been seperate and various games either take place in one or the other.[* (https://web.archive.org/web/20100817082306/http://www.game.co.uk/Games/Wii/Platform/Sonic-Colours/~r349876/UserControls/ProductView/#)]
Given there is no evidence of Sonic going to and from seperate worlds, this caused a brand new rift in the fandom. One-worlders like me who believe/prefer it was always a single alternate Earth for Sonic games and Two-worlders who believed in the more classic Mobius and Earth being seperate thing.
One-Worlders like myself bring up lots of contradictions to this statement. If Sonic 3 & Knuckles takes place in Sonic's world and Sonic Adventure takes place on Earth, why is Angel Island present in both games? Why is the Mystic Ruins on Earth? Takashi Iizuka's excuse is "some miracle brought it there." I think eventually Ian Flynn confirmed that the two-world statement was redacted and that it has always been the one world for Sonic.

But there were some who took the two-world statement as figurative, I did. Like how the "Wizarding World" of Harry Potter. The Wizarding World is not a seperate planet from Earth where sorcery resides in. It's simply a term to refer to the hidden magical community of wizards and witches who live secret and seperate lives from non-magic people to the point it feels like separate worlds to them.
I like to believe that humans and mobians share the same planet which they call Earth. Humans outpopulate mobians which is why throughout Adventure, '06 and Unleashed we see humans everywhere but hardly any mobians other than Sonic and his friends. But I believe mobians simply prefer more secluded communities than humans, perhaps island-life such as the islands from the Classic-era of Sonic games.
This theory is somewhat supported in Sonic Forces where the World Map depicts a large island. This moves onto my second theory that this island is actually a modern take on South Island. My evidence:And that pretty much covers about a third of my theories on the nature of Sonic's world.

I know, I grew up with Archie Comics and SA1/SA2 on Dreamcast too.
My first sentence is for Sonic Colors.
I just make a point that for recent trends (after Colors) SEGA tends to NOT include humans in their games / comic book.
Funny thing ... Mario Odyssey did the opposite.

I grew up on Sonic the Comic. But yeah that's my theories on how Sonic's world works. So I tihnk it's likely Dr. Eggman would of had humans in mind for his theme parks as well as mobians. Just has routes specifically for Sonic.

"Segapocalypse!
Wave Master, the company that manages Sega's music, has contacted me and asked me to remove lots of albums related to Sega.
At the end of the day, over 500 albums were removed, including Sonic, OutRun, and others.
Unfortunately, this even included fan made compilation albums for games that have no commercial releases, which, quite frankly, makes absolutely no sense.
If you were wondering why some albums have disappeared on the site, this is why."

Tails answered that he already helped by making translating machine for Wisps language that could guide Sonic where to go next.

RUMOR: Is the Sonic Balloon Returning to Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade This Year?

While these details do suggest the video is much more recent than his 2013 appearance, it should obviously not be taken as a confirmation that Sonic is being used this year.
Neither Macy’s nor SEGA have officially confirmed Sonic’s presence at the parade, and a single Instagram video without context isn’t definitive.

I think that's why in Ultimate Tails' give more role with Tail's save. He's Sonic backup when something's gone wrong. But to be consistent, they should've changed the cutscene where Sonic mocks Tails.

They could of changed a lot of things while still keeping to the essence of the game.

For example, each world has six acts. That's just too many to keep my interest in a place and most of those acts feel less effort was put into them than Sonic Forces stages. They could of at least tweaked three of these six stages to work for Tails. Especially the stages that hardly need boosting.

Eh, I like many acts, especially short ones (usually act 4-6).
I'm too lazy replaying stages that are too long solely for scores, but short ones are okay for me.
I guess people's preference are different.

Smart people tend to be oblivious to the immediate things around them given their brains are on a higher level. Plus intelligence doesn't excuse personality given Dr. Robotnik was a self-centered person in the film.

Plus, it's only a guess of mine that Agent Stone harbours affection for Dr. Robotnik. If he does then even we didn't know ourselves from the first movie.

Dr. Starline immediately notices that Mr. Tinker's Belle can experience "the full gamut of emotions" such as loyalty and familial devotion, a discovery he finds most pleasing, especially since he can easily replicate the coding.
The robots created by Dr. Eggman's good alter ego Mr. Tinker are so much more complex than the villain's Badniks that Sonic the Hedgehog would undoubtedly lose if Mr. Tinker ever returned and waged war against him.

City Connection just recently released Cotton Guardian Force Saturn Tribute that compiled Cotton 2, Cotton Boomerang and Guardian Force on a single cartridge.
The game was, well, not well received due to the emulation being used having input lag, making the games hard to play.
The story would have ended there but, GBATemp user Iisreal2301 figured out a way to load his own SEGA Saturn images onto the game file, basically allowing you to boot up any SEGA Saturn game by tricking the system into thinking its loading a Cotton game!

(https://www.smspower.org/forums/files/grey_ball_113.png)(https://www.smspower.org/forums/files/fixed_fire_188.png)

Additional changes:
- boss music (lower volume of some notes at the end of the song)
- Put back the waves on water of Labyrinth. I didn't recognize the tiles and removed them earlier. Miraculously they did not take much space and everything still fits with them, phew!
- fixed 2 pixel in water of greenhill act 2
- trees in Marble should look ok-ish
- the new fire in marble zone seemed to go down, instead of up. So i had to swap red and yellow to fix it .

I wish Sonic Team would make more Halloween (and Christmas) specials for Sonic the Hedgehog like they used to do with Christmas NiGHTS into Dreams (https://nights.fandom.com/wiki/Christmas_NiGHTS_into_Dreams) and Sonic Adventure DLCs (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Sonic_Adventure#Downloadable_content). But now days only the mobile games seem to put any effort into it.

Ideas in mind:But, if I could ask for just the one thing to have for a Sonic Halloween special, it would be a brand new Storybook game (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Sonic_Storybook_Series) set in the world of classic monsters (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_Classic_Monsters). I'm imagining this storybook world being a lot like 19th century Transylvania but with places like 1790 Sleepy Hollow (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sleepy_Hollow,_New_York) and Yharnam (https://bloodborne.fandom.com/wiki/Yharnam). If I ever made such a game myself I would call it "Sonic and the Blood Moon". It could have themes of Halloween but could still be a kind of Sonic game that can be played all year round. (Though I would make the included Party Mode (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Party_Mode) entirely Halloween based.)

They could... but these days Tyson Hesse and Yukio Kusomoto make the animations to promote Sonic games. While they're not bad, they're not as quality as Night of the Werehog.

My idea for an IDW Sonic Halloween ComicFest issue would that it takes place not long after the events of #19 (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/IDW_Sonic_the_Hedgehog_Issue_19). It be about a small group of civilians lead by a Restoration member who try to leave the Hotel but could not, thus they miss the rescue truck and no one even knows they are there. Luckily the hotel is still rather secured, comfortable and with supplies but how long can they hold out before the Zombots get in?
While a completely original cast of (disposable) characters, Shadow, Charmy and other characters who are zombots cameo as problems they have to overcome but the idea of the story is inspired by Dawn of the Dead, which is about a group of survivors in relative and plentiful comfort while trying to survive zombies.

(https://c.tenor.com/h28GNQkLWtgAAAAC/sonic-sonic-x.gif)
The list is all the Sonic episodes I can find that fit the bill of mild-horror in theme but as far as I'm aware no Halloween episodes. I find that while Tails' Tale isn't exactly pumpkins and ghosts, it has tombs, cobwebs and bat-people which is rather Halloweeny.
Sonic Ghost Shooting game could happened if SEGA's willing to/
I meant they already published arcade version of Nintendo's Luigi Mansion (https://i.redd.it/hazmt07mw4k41.jpg)
Ghost Shooting game is already an arcade game in Joypolis. Problem is I and many others outside of Japan will probably never get to play it. That's why I suggest recreating it as a browser-based VR game, so that I and others can simulate the ride and the experiance. And given it's about shooting ghosts, well how Halloweeny is that?
Horror Storybook about Sonic sounds nice too.
Just too bad Storybook series died with Wii.
It's a damn shame for Sonic Team to stop the storybook series short on just two games. What I liked about these games is that they take Sonic into more original and unique themed worled that relaxes the aesthetics and standards the Sonic games are known for. I mean the rings are a staple but it replaces springs, dash pads, robots and other things for concepts and gimmicks unique to the world it's set in. Because of this, SOnic Team could of made a storybook set anywhere for any theme or occasion.

For example, my storybook idea "Sonic and the Blood Moon", it's somewhat gothic in theme and set in a world similar to Yharnam (https://bloodborne.fandom.com/wiki/Yharnam). Despite these ideals and perhaps elements of Halloween in there, it's not neccisarily a Halloween game, it's still the kind of game you can play whenever, it just so happens that classic monsters (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_Classic_Monsters) are the theme.

But given such a game is likely to be favoured to play around October, if the game had a Party Mode (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Party_Mode) I would call it "Halloween Party Mode" and just go all out with the jack-o-lanterns, veiled ghosts, trick or treats etc.

I had an older idea for storybook games called "Sonic and the Pearls of Wisdom", an ancient-chinese themed game set on the Journey to the West (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Journey_to_the_West). I've been holding onto that idea since before S&tBK.

Party Mode is my favorite part of Sonic and Secret Rings.
Just changing their background into haloween theme could made me want to play them again.

That  storybook idea "Sonic and the Blood Moon" is interesting.
But may be change the title since I don't think "Blood" is a suitable title for kid-friendly Sonic games.
Unless the game is for mature players of course.
I think I ever read somewhere that there are some words that can't be used a title if we want the game to get E rating.

"Sonic and the Red Moon" is fine. As long as the reason why it's red is kept in.

In S&tSR, just as Erazor Djinn cast the Flame of Judgement (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Flame_of_Judgment) on Sonic that limited his time.
In S&tBM would have a similar curse put on him after the main villain leaves a nasty cut on his arm and stains the moon with a drop of his blood. As the moon gradually turns red throughout the adventure so little is Sonic's time.
But this dark ritual unlocks a familiar power to Sonic, allowing him to become the Werehog for certain stages. The gameplay of these stages are similar to Die Hard/Dynamite Deka in gameplay.

I haven't thought of a good name for the Big Bad or the Companion yet, but I know the roles of Sonic's friends counterparts:

Shadow and Rouge = The Vampires. They are servents to the Big Bad, but eventually Sonic convinces them to turn against him. While not specifically named they are based after Dracula and Camilla.
Tails = The Scientist. After Sonic helps him subdue his "creation", he convinces him to be more compassionate to his creation. The scientist is based after Victor Von Frankenstein and his creation after Frankenstein's Monster.
Knuckles = The Hunter
. Stereotypical monster hunter. Fought Sonic as a werehog and was baffled the werehog showed him mercy. When he put asside his prejudist against monsters is willing to help Sonic fight the Big Bag. His attire is based after Gabriel Van Helsing.
Blaze = The Mummy. She was asleep in a sarcophagus found i the Big Bad's collection. She possesses an amulet that concentrates her fire into solar light that burns vampires and Big Bad.

Post by: Berto on October 16, 2021, 02:08:09 am
Tails as The Scientist and Knuckles as The Hunter were good ideas.
Choosing a bat as Vampire is indeed the most logical sense I think,
But I'd prefer Rouge become a mummy, like her in Sonic 30th Anniversary Art Book : Life in Sonic's World Vol.1

(https://sega.jp/wp-content/uploads/2021/08/210825_4_4.jpg)(https://sega.jp/wp-content/uploads/2021/08/210825_4_2.jpg)

(https://i.ibb.co/3YQ7Qfd/Mummy-Rouge-The-Bat.jpg)

Blaze on the other hand could be ... um I don't know, ... what's a ghost with a fire theme?
Title: Re: Sonic The Hedgehog - A Little Ball of Energy in an Extremely Handsome Package
Post by: Mystic Monkey on October 16, 2021, 08:42:18 am
I wanted Blaze to be a Mummy, and by that I mean she has some bandages but her body is perfectly healthy than all zombie like. She possess an amulet that allows her to shine sunlight through it at any time, anywhere, which makes it a powerful weapon against vampires.

Sonic Mania 2 Is Said to Have Been Scrapped Internally at Sega

Zippo explained that the reason for this seems to have been due to a clash of some sort between Sega and Evening Star Studios.
The blog in question didn't get into too many specifics about what happened here, but it did state that Sega of America was the division of Sega that proved to be the problem.
Zippo claimed that Sega of America management was "extremely unreasonable", leading to a "break up" between the publisher and Evening Star.

I love Sonic Mania.
1 or 2 DLC stages won't satisfy my hunger.
My wish is be a full game sequel or nothing at all.

Plus are you sure this is legit? Isn't it the same guy who said Sora isn't going to smash and that the Sonic Adventure remakes were canceled even though Iisuka said he hasn't even made any of the likes?

Yes because it didn't contradict what's happened.
Evening Star isn't big studio.
If Evening Star is already busy with their next own game, then it's indeed very likely that they don't work on Sonic Games.

If it were to happen I won't see how story wise. Other than continued pursuit of the Phantom Ruby. But if Sonic Mania 2 will have the same gameplay as the first, graphics as the first and same story as the first... then why bother with a sequel at all?

I mean sure, same can be said for Sonic 2 on the Mega Drive but Tails was a major game changer.

That's why I think that Sonic Team should of made "Level Pack DLCs" for Sonic Mania Plus. Simply an assortment of stages to play through for no story or reason other than fun.

If it were up to me ....
Change the characters, that's how it will affect on gameplay.
Dish Mighty and Ray,
replace them Amy (with hammer like in Sonic Advance 1) and 1 brand new character that has new gameplay.

Also replace Knuckles and Tails with Vector and Charmy.
Knuckles and Tails still could be unlockable later after finishing the game once
(just like on Sonic CD remake).

And make 2 player stages that could be played in the same screen, not split screen.
This one is kinda hard, but if we're talking about sequel of the best Sonic game of decade, then aim big !

If it were up to me ....
Change the characters, that's how it will affect on gameplay.
Dish Mighty and Ray,
replace them Amy (with hammer like in Sonic Advance 1) and 1 brand new character that has new gameplay.

I'd probably keep Tails and Knuckles, but I'd replace Mighty and Ray. Maybe reintroduce Team Chaotix. I wouldn't introduce brand new characters though, only characters who had started in classic Sonic games.

New zones, badniks and new Hard Boiled Heavies being the exception.

The current Hard Boiled Heavies were already interesting enough for me,
but the more the merrier of course.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2022’s Locations Are Reminiscent of Zelda: Breath of the Wild;
Terrain Type Will Impact Speed

This play tester also revealed some Sonic the Hedgehog 2022 gameplay details.
Apparently, the game will not feature multiple playable characters and Wisps, and it will be possible to purchase new special moves from a dedicated shop.
Additionally, locations in the game will feature different types of terrain that will impact speed.
As a whole, the game feels like a mix between Sonic Adventure and Sonic Lost World.

As Super Sonic, the character has faced down forces of nature like Dark Gaia and Gods like Solaris without breaking a sweat.
That being said, his form is limited until his power runs out. But with the speed of the Flash and even greater strength than Superman, Sonic has more than enough time to assess Superman and defeat him before Clark can throw the first punch.

Sonic is in the lead.
F2P games were counted so Sonic Dash and Sonic Forces mobile generated a lot of numbers for Sonic :
1.38 billion units and download.
For comparison Shin Megami Tensei is at 17.7 million and Total War at 37.8 million.
Billion vs million.

Shin Megami Tensei's also in the lead for Atlus  in numbers,
(usually Persona is the one who's leading),
but this just because it counts its new F2P game  "SHIN MEGAMI TENSEI Liberation Dx2" too.
If we're talking about moneywise, Persona still beats Shin Megami Tensei,
but this list only compared number of units and downloads.

The poster also claims there is somewhat of a romantic mood between Sonic and the ghost girl, and that the girl is even “very sexualized and attractive.”
The second post (dated November 6th) claims the Ghost Girl knows more than she lets on, but is keeping it a secret and is not revealing why she is so invested in not seeing Sonic hurt.
While she is to embarrassed to reveal how she feels, she wants to be freed from cyberspace and that the villain (who can turn invisible) can turn her into a real female hedgehog; rather than a human or humanoid as a ghost.

While werehog's gameplay was solid, it's still  the most hated element in Unleashed. I don't think they'll bring back something that would be hated by majority of fans.

Colbert talked about how Elba spoke about how he doesn’t think his take on Knuckles will be sexy, given Elba himself has previously been named “Sexiest Man Alive”, which led to Colbert making his own Sexy Knuckles tra...

Book review: The SEGA Mega Drive & Genesis Encyclopedia

(https://i.ibb.co/HCd17q5/SEGA-Mega-Drive-and-Genesis-Encyclopedia.jpg)

Quote
Former CVG and Official Nintendo Magazine scribe Chris Scullion turns to the dark side for his third exhaustive unofficial encyclopedia, taking us on a tour of not just the entire western SEGA Mega Drive and Genesis catalogue, but the Mega CD and 32X as well.
As someone more than familiar with the Mega Drive library, it was a delight to find it peppered with tidbits of knowledge, such as SEGA Sports’ NFL 97 heading to Saturn and skipping the Genesis, only to return to the 16-bit console the following year.
When it comes to the sports games, in particular, it’s clear Scullion went out of his way to make each entry a worthwhile read – a task far harder than it may sound.

Yes. According to Gamesradar (https://www.gamesradar.com/monster-hunter-rise-teams-up-with-sonic-later-this-month/) :

The Sonic the Hedgehog collaboration might be kicking off later this month for everyone on the Nintendo Switch version of Monster Hunter Rise, but it's also coming to the PC version of Capcom's game.

When Monster Hunter Rise debuts on PC on January 12, 2022, the Sonic collaboration event will be there as a day one addition to the already-massive game.

Not into Monster Hunter... but I might get it now.

*Checks Steam store page. It's released in January 12 and for £49.99*

I have tried the franchises on 3DS before.
It's definitely inspired by the original Phantasy Star Online.
The difference that it could take hours just to kill one monster.  ;-D

Looking at gameplay trailers, it does remind me of PSO as well as Shadow of Colossus. And a bit of Final Fantasy MMOG.

Sonic The Hedgehog 2 blew away the competition when it launched in the West 29 years ago today!

The new 2-player versus mode used some interlacing graphical trickery to bump up the game’s resolution to 320x448 pixels!

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Movie Trailer (or Any Other Sonic Related Thing) Teased for The Game Awards

(https://c.tenor.com/bCa7PtjNZRIAAAAC/sonic-sonic-movie.gif)

Quote
It's looking like Sonic fans might want to check out The Game Awards this Thursday, as there could be something to see.
The official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account Tweeted at Geoff Keighley, asking whether the host has "any extra invites."
Keighley cheekily pointed out that Sonic doesn't even follow him on Twitter, but apparently that didn't stop him from hooking up the blue blur with an invitation to the show.

I heard it's sold out in only 3-5 days.
Calendar sure is popular item during November and December.
I hope they do them again next year.

Also, heard about Colleen voicing Tails in Sonic 2?

The SEGAbits Swingin' Report Show LIVE – Our Favorite and Most Disappointing SEGA Games of 2021

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NE-pjvCz7AQ (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NE-pjvCz7AQ)

As for me, my 2021 favorite is Persona 5 Strikers, the game is fast, stylish, and fun to play.
Better than the turn based prequel, Persona 5 OG/Royal, since it's faster.
The most disappointing is Hatsune Miku Colorful Stage since it's announced to be released globally but turned out it's not released on SEA territory.
I don't care anymore whether the game is good or not, the hype is gone. I'll stick to Idola Phantasy Star Saga for mobile gaming.

Frontiers is an open-world game – or open-zone as Sega describes it – developed by Sonic Team Japan and led by Sonic Forces/Sonic Lost World director, Morio Kishimoto.
Fans of Sonic comics should be happy to learn that Ian Flynn, lead writer for IDW’s Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and former head writer for the Archie Comics Sonic run, is penning Frontiers' story.

Maybe it means instead of one open-world map there will be several open-world maps called zones. Some of these peculiar buildings and structures remind me a bit of PSO2:NGS. So Hopefully it won't feel as boxed in as I did in PSO2:NGS.

Eeh sort of, I mean the stages in Sonic '06 were still rather linear but I see your point.

It looks awesome. And (so far) no mention of Wisps nor the use of Sonic Lost World aesthetics which is a huge plus for me.

I don't mind Wisps, but I don't mind losing them either.
I think they were cool when they're still new back then.

Still wondering why there's no Silver Wisps and Gold Wisps.

The Suicide Squad actor is taking this seriously, says director Jeff Fowler

“You’ve got Sonic’s speed, you’ve got Knuckles’ super strength, and we just put them in an environment and let them go at it,” Fowler says.
“It’s like a little Captain America and Iron Man;
it just offers so much opportunity in terms of fight choreography and action.”

Also, Composer Jun Senoue returned for this arrangement. While Senoue worked alongside Ted Poley to create the original song, Dean DiMarzo came to assist on this new take.
While Lyn is well known as the Persona 5 singer, she’s performed on the soundtracks for Persona series spin-offs too. She sang six songs on the Persona 5 Strikers soundtrack.
This includes that game’s opening theme, “You are Stronger.” She performed “Groovy” and “One Nightbreak” for Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight.
She also was behind some of the tracks for the Persona Q2 soundtrack.

Revealed today is an officially branded Sonic the Hedgehog HORI Switch Split Pad Pro, and guess what… you can pre-order it now!
While Mario and Pikachu seem to have all the fun when it comes to branded Nintendo controllers, it’s great to finally see SEGA and Sonic stepping into the ring.

It's controller for Switch...
Base Switch is basically just a tablet..
with two joycons attached in left and right of the tablet as attachable controllers.
This Hori Sonic Split Pad Pro is just replacing those two joycons with cooler looking ones.

I see, still not that much of an incentive for me to get a Switch though.

Maybe if the Switch had Sonic exclusives I'd keel.

Saturn's Diamond Dust is made by Richard Jacques, right?
I think now the departement who in charged in Youtube videos tend to avoid using his song,
in order not to anger him again like he did with Tee Lopes (https://www.reddit.com/r/SonicTheHedgehog/comments/dtowfj/richard_jacques_now_deleted_response_to_tee_lopes/).
If Sonic's channel make a Yule Log video they could still credit Richard Jacques, it's good manners after all. I may have only found out about Yule Log videos recently but I think Yule Log videos need at least these three things:

If Sonic's channel make a Yule Log video they could still credit Richard Jacques, it's good manners after all. I may have only found out about Yule Log videos recently but I think Yule Log videos need at least these three things:
  • Obviously a fireplace with a crackling fire. The camera may concentrate either on the fireplace or display the living room that is decorated for Christmas. Such as visable Christmas tree, a window with a snowfall outside and even better if the light of the fire is visable on its surroundings. The camera may occasionally do both by moving towards and back from the fireplace. The fire itself can simply be a few-minute loop (around five minutes) to give the illusion of a continuing fire.
  • Casual, easy-to-listen to music. When it comes to winter stages (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Winter_theme) in Sonic games, not all of them have such casual themes (and I know Sonic 3 music is a bit of a grey area for Sega's legal department, unless they straight up play Jetzons' Hard Times (http://y2u.be/H2OWC5Hosv8).) but they could probably find fan covers that they can ask to use and such. As long as Diamond Dust (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/File:Diamond_Dust_Zone_Act_2_Saturn.ogg), Snowy Mountain (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/File:Snowy_Mountain_for_Icecap.ogg), Limestone Cave (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/File:Limestone_Cave_for_Icecap.ogg) and Holoska hub theme (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Holoska#Music) are used given they're the most chill Sonic stage themes I know. And if that's not enough they could probably pad out the length with music from Christmas NiGHTS and traditional carols. The music needs to be "easy-to-listen to" because it's for when you're relaxing by the fire, not for partying.
  • (Optional) the occasional animation. Instead of it just being a few-minute loop with music, the video could have the occasional surprise with tidbits of animation to keep the audience on it's toes.

    For a good example, 2020's Doctor Who Yule Log (http://y2u.be/kZXNnui21w0). It has everything! It has music composed from the show, it has the Doctor (though that's not her actor Judy Whitaker), it has tidbits of animations (my fave being 27:32) and sometimes the camera pans from close up of the fireplace to it's surroundings. And more importantly it keeps to the aesthetic of the show by looking like a fireplace that belongs in the TARDIS.

    To be honest, I find it hard to imagine how a Sonic Yule Log can work given Sonic has always been more of an outdoor person. Plus I always find it hard to identitfy the "Sonic aesthetic" that I dunno how such a fireplace work.
    (But if you asked me to do a Mario Yule Log, well that's easy. Princess Peach' castle from Super Mario 64 is so recognisable that might as well have the Yule Log somewhere in her castle. That's what annoys me between Mario and Sonic aesthetic, Marios aesthetic is more easy to recognise than Sonic's outside of Green Hill Zone.)

Those are nice ideas.
I remember Jesse Pajamas could made relaxing christmas version of any Sonic songs,
too bad his channels are deleted now.
What I'm trying to say is that .. it is not have to be based on Sonic's snow levels.
It could just be Christmas remix version of any Sonic song.
But I guess Sonic official channel just adapt "it's got to be something perfect or nothing at all" and choose the later.

As long as they don't leave it last minute as Nintendo did. It's not like Christmas is just announced unexpectedly.
And yeah christmas remixed versions of other stage songs could work as well.

As for where Sonic's yule long should be I dunno. So far all I can think of is:If I were to choose a place, my choice would be White Park Grand Chateau (https://idwsonic.fandom.com/wiki/White_Park_Grand_Chateau). However it depends how many people have read the IDW comics to know what that place is like or can even imagine it like Sonic at all.

EDIT: Decided to try and make my own Sonic Yule Log video. However given it's Christmas Eve now I doubt I'll have it finish by Christmas. But if it looks decent I'll post it next year. So far I made a fireplace using textures from Twinkle Park, including the red carpet texture. I just need a good wall texture. Will try to recreate Station Square christmas trees.

As for where Sonic's yule long should be I dunno. So far all I can think of is:
  • Professor Pickle (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Professor_Pickle)'s study, preferably the one at Spagonia University (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Spagonia_University). Though I can't recall if his study had a fireplace or not. Problem is given his study was such a small and somewhat generic place I doubt it would be that recignisable to the Sonic franchise.
  • Somewhere in the Resistance HQ (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Resistance_HQ), though honestly we just seen a room of th HQ which consist of a main computer and some crates, nowhere that looks homely for Christmas let alone a fireplace.
  • Instead of a fireplace inside somewhere, instead the yule log could be placed on a campfire located in a zone. Maybe at Ice Cap (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/IceCap_(disambiguation)), (either Sonic 3 or Adventure), White Park Zone (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/White_Park_Zone), Holoska (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Holoska), Frozen Factory (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Frozen_Factory), Press Garden Zone (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Press_Garden_Zone) or Glacierland (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Glacierland). While Green Hill may seem the most Sonic-recognisable place, I always found Green Hill too tropical to believe it can snow there.
If I were to choose a place, my choice would be White Park Grand Chateau (https://idwsonic.fandom.com/wiki/White_Park_Grand_Chateau). However it depends how many people have read the IDW comics to know what that place is like or can even imagine it like Sonic at all.

I'm sure it'll look good. I just need more Sonic Adventure textures to make it feel more homely. The fireplace itself looks great so far (albeit bare but I can add stuff in SFM, it just needs wallpaper. I'm thinking red because I plan for a moment during the video where the camera turns right to reveal an animated recreation of this (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/File:SSS_SONIC12.png), and later on in the video will turn right to show this (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/File:SSS_SONIC24.png) (in which Tails may play Green Hill by Jon Batiste (http://y2u.be/H_fiwjSP4Aw), unless Sonic's new movie will have an Emerald Hill piano piece).

I have a few other animated tidbits in mind for the video to keep it interesting but I won't spoil what I have in mind. I would post a picture, but I can't upload/post pictures straight from my harddrive.

With the acception of Lego Dimensions, I haven't played with Legos since I was a kid. But I might be tempted to get a Sonic Lego set.

But... I would not be that interested in it if it did not have an electronic minifigure just like what Mario had (https://brickipedia.fandom.com/wiki/Mario). I know it's unfair to compare Sonic's products to Mario's but given Mario's minifigure doubles as a game then shouldn't Sonic have something just as quality? Ever since I watched this video (http://y2u.be/K69r-DTAlRg), I would love to do Lego-papercraft projects with a Sonic electronic minifigure.

Check Out This Never-Before-Seen Intro To BioWare's Now-Decanonized Sonic Brotherhood

With the acception of Lego Dimensions, I haven't played with Legos since I was a kid. But I might be tempted to get a Sonic Lego set.

But... I would not be that interested in it if it did not have an electronic minifigure just like what Mario had (https://brickipedia.fandom.com/wiki/Mario). I know it's unfair to compare Sonic's products to Mario's but given Mario's minifigure doubles as a game then shouldn't Sonic have something just as quality? Ever since I watched this video (http://y2u.be/K69r-DTAlRg), I would love to do Lego-papercraft projects with a Sonic electronic minifigure.

It's too simple indeed...
Even if compared to Sonic Mania Ideas

What they have animated might be last minutes attempt before the game's wrapped up.

I hope it's not a matter of Nintendo have copyright ownership of "electronic minifigures" or something. As far as I'm aware, Mario#s minifigure is the only electronic minifigure LEGO has ever made.

True, but would it really been bad to stall release of Sonic Chronicles for further development? Ever since Sonic '06 there has been cases of Sega straight-up telling the audience "We decided to postpone the date for development, we're sorry" and I've seen the community welcome this warmly.

May be it's mandate from Nintendo? They agree appearing in lego series but it has to be different.

Yes, but only for the game they developed by themself.
For the game that developed by other developers (Sonic Boom, racing series), they rarely do that.
I don't know why.

I hope not, it be unfair that Sonic Lego ends up just a generic playset while Nintendo get's to have electronics in theres.

If that's the case it's why I think perhaps LEGO isn't the ideal major toy deal for Sonic. As in if Mario has Lego, what if Sonic has Hot Wheels? Imagine if Sonic had an "electronic" Hot Wheels figure.

Used to collect Hot Wheels since my son loved them.
For SEGA related, I have that SEGA series (https://videogamecritic.com/extras/cool/segacars.htm) : Shinobi, JSRF, Space Channel 5, HoTD 3, and Super Monkey Ball.
Never saw Sonic ones.
That would be cool if it exist, especially if it treated different than the rest.

I can imagine a Sonic Hot Wheel figure if done right, though I imagine ti be difficult to make it streamlined for it to work properly. But it would fit well with Sonic's theme of speed and loop-de-loops.
As for how the electronic part works, I dunno. Maybe an app?

The road part is the one to modify with electronic parts,
not the cars.
But speed couldn't be too fast, they had safety issues to consider,
so may be more on loops than on speed.

Well, as much as I think a Sonic LEGO set with electronic minifigure would be cool, I just can't see it happening if Nintendo has the licence for it. But SEGA could probably get away with making an electronic minifigure for another leading toy franchise. Hot Wheels was the first in mind given some of their playsets look like they were designed for rollercoasters and Sonic's zones have rollercoaster like formations.

Also the hot wheels cars could be based on Sonic Racing games,

But I guess it would feel samey with Sonic racing games.

In a way, yes. I mean guns and weapons are obviously not toys. But some could regard certain devices as toys, I'd say it comes down to how much joy one derives from it even if it's non-productive.
For example cameras are used for photography but there are those who simply like taking pictures because it's a fun hobby for them, so that camera would technically be a toy to them.

I guess that technically makes figurines "toys" even if they're just for display, I just can't argue that they are if you don't "play" with them. I's why Elf on a Shelf can go F itself. It's not a toy, it's a scam.

Yes, thus as statues you can't "play" with them given they're suppose to be decoration. So would that make them toys? Is Elf on a Shelf really a toy?

Sonic's forward smash beats basically everything
Can it be defeated by any pair of fighters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate?

Quote
Sonic's forward smash is basically invulnerable.
UR2SLOW previously explored why this phenomenon takes place, and it appears that the hurtbox around Sonic's forward Smash is essentially nonexistent — so the big fist functions like an invincible move without technically being classed as one.
The tests conducted includes sets of Link, Dark Pit, Banjo, Corrin, Ganondorf, Sephiroth, Shulk, Bayonetta, Villager and even Sora. Can any of the duo's best a single hedgehog?

I never heard Sonic said that to fans.
I remember he said Happy Birthday to Destructoid,
but that was a joke.
I found a video (http://y2u.be/WIjlf4K6iFM) but I doubt it's his voice actor... or anything Sega will approve of.
Sonic Frontiers was meant to launch 2021,
delayed to increase quality

I'm positive the Sonic fandom won't mind this postpone and appreciate Sonic Team taking more time to put in effort and quality into the game.

Isn't this video the "Destructoid" one I've talking about before?

I don't even mind if it delayed to 2023, as long as it's good.
At least as good as Mario Odyssey (the only Mario game that I love, not counting Olympic series).

The fact he had the name SONIC in all capitals just tells me he knows full well he regards them as characters and concepts he took for himself, not characters and concepts he claims he has creative rights over which makes him even more of a smarmy git.

The fact "Evil Sonic" and "Anti-Knuckles" is on the list is revolting because that would be the equivilent of me claiming rights to "Evil Mario". Evil Sonic and Anti-Knuckles are just cliché evil-double characters.

Ironically, I was looking forward to Scourge's upcoming comic (https://twitter.com/ScourgeComic/status/1460235434118635522) and was dissapointed it was cancelled due to Anti-Penders backlash. Which means if RUSH! won't make a quality comic for Scourge then Penders will. And knowing how much of a pitiful rat-hearted discharge of a weasel he is he'll probably depict Evil Sonic as his oppinions with Sega.

Legal action is costly for individuals, that's why it's usually only used against a very big corporate, in hoping to get maximum gains that could cover the legal battle cost before. Tantrum is the safe way~

Fans united to press Sega to put Portuguese on Sonic Frontiers

(https://i.ibb.co/yXV4s1r/Sonic-Fans-from-Brazil.png)

Quote
Brazilian Sonic The Hedgehog fans are joining forces on social media to deliver a message to Sega’s ears.
The message is clear and very simple: they want the next game in the series, Sonic Frontiers, to have at least PT-BR subtitles. If so, this will be the first blue hedgehog game to have Portuguese subtitles.
Many fans and influencers are turning to the hashtag #SonicFrontiersPTBR to join the discussion on Twitter and the movement, which started this week, is already gaining a lot of traction.

Most Brazilian people's first console was Master System
and Sonic was one of the best game on the system.
So I'm sure SEGA knew they loved him or at least had a nostalgia with him.
Kinda weird really that they hadn't put Portuguese language before..

But thankfully SEGA listened to them this time ....

TikTok is collaborating with Sega and Dreams Come True on a Sonic the Hedgehog game effect.
If you use the effect, you can use your face to control Sonic as he runs across the screen.
In the background, Dreams Come True’s “Tsugi wa Se~no de! On The Green Hill – Masado & Miwasco Version” plays.
This is a version of “Green Hill Zone” with lyrics.
Here is an example from the official Sega TikTok account:

Something I noticed of Sega now and again, especially IDW Sonic. re-using assets than making exclusives.

Like serously, it's a 2023 calender, can't they just make new exclusive art for it on-off throughout 2022?

They can but the costs would also go up since they had to pay more for the artists,
and the calendar's price would also go up too.
I guess they want to keep the price at reasonable price.

For Sonic fans may be, but they're aiming for general.
For people who recoqnize Sonic (from movie or tv series, but not love him that much)
or parents who thought their kids may like it.
For this kind of people, the price difference matters.

I guess, but it's still an issue I wish Sonic Team would handle with more tact.
For example I regard Sonic Colours and Sonic Lost World as games more catered for the demographic audience (children to teens) than the long term fans (Classic-Dreamcast era fans that remained) Because of this, I feel at odd with these games, me often regarding them the worst modern Sonic games have to offer (post-'06), but I know that's somewhat hypocritical of me because these games were made mostly for younger fans than "all the fans". And thus I resort to the grandpa mindset of "You youngin's should play the games we had if you want quality content" while the younin's just see the Mega Drive and Dreamcast as outdated uncool technology. And it doesn't help with IGN and other reviews that paint these old games badly.

Still, games like Sonic Mania, Generations and even Forces make good "beginners" games for those who never touched a Sonic game before or have little context of the franchise. And while Sonic Origin don't interest me none it will allow those youngin's a platform to play these games on.

Hopefully Sonic Origin has a new content, new playable characters, or ton of unlockables.
If it just like SEGA Ages version, it does feel lacking of reasons to buy the game.
I'm sure old school fans have played Sonic Genesis tetralogy to death and yeah, newer Generation will prefer 3D Sonic and think why would they buy Origin when Frontiers is coming soon.

Hopefully Sonic Origin has a new content, new playable characters, or ton of unlockables.
If it just like SEGA Ages version, it does feel lacking of reasons to buy the game.
I'm sure old school fans have played Sonic Genesis tetralogy to death and yeah, newer Generation will prefer 3D Sonic and think why would they buy Origin when Frontiers is coming soon.
If Sonic Origins had Sonic World (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Sonic_World) then it would definitely be a selling point for me. But if it's just a standard compilation then, well I already have the games on Steam.

But Sonic Team really should balance it's market for both young and old fans. My Little Pony being a brilliant example of it. When Lauren Faust was hired to make Friendship is Magic, she didn't want to make the show "just for little girls" as expected for MLP. She knew those little girls would encourage their parents or their older brothers to watch the show with them and thus Faust aimed the show for families to enjoy. Because of this mindset she triggered a phenomenon of a MLP TV show that had a demograph that surpassed interest of it's target audience and grew a cult following.

While Hasbro didn't know what to do with this unexpected audience and did try to curb them down a bit, the thing is they were making more profit from the additional older fans than they did from the pocket money and parents interest of their target demograph.

Sonic the Hedgehog has been around since the 90s and have fans that not only grew up with the franchise but have jobs and incomes to the point that a thirty-something year old man buying a Sonic game for himself isn't as weird as a parent buying the game for their kids. But kids usually get games if they can buy them with pocket money or if their parents will buy it for them, in which case it maybe for Birthday or Christmas.
I'm just saying that Sonic Team should strive to balance their demograph for both than just one or the other and like MLP:FiM be of appropriate interest of the young target audience while still be of relevent interest to the older audience.

It's not standard compilation.
It's being remade into widescreen mode, with Tails and Knuckles are playable in all versions.
Sonic CD probably's still the same as Steam version, but Sonic 1,2,3&K is definitely different, more like Whitehead's mobile version of Sonic 1&2.

MLP's cult is kinda different.
I don't see them being rude to other fans like Sonic fans who prefer one game compared to another.
The fans don't fight among themselves.

Thankfully my kids love Sonic so I can just justify myself that I'm buying the game for them, lol.
And seeing their playtime is much more than mine, of course I can tell mysell that excuse.
Of course I can't use that excuse for Yakuza, Persona 5 Strikers, and other mature games.

Wide screen mode would be interesting, but I've played those games over and over that other than being Whitehead's remakes they don't really appeal to me that much.

I've been on Ponychan longer than Segabits forum and I can tell you the Sonic fandom and Bronies have a lot in common, more than some of each sides care to admit. Such as the bronies of /co/, Ponychan and /b/ before /mlp/ came along. And I've met fellow bronies I did not get along with.

Oh, and smut art, a lot of smut art.

True but isn't it nice when we get SOnic games that appeal to both young and old? Take Sonic Adventure for example, the misile scene is perhaps my favourite part of the game. Some would perhaps regard it relative to terrorism to todays standards and be offensive to some but it's not like the game has swearing, blood or other mature themes. Sonic Adventure was still a good game for children and teens but not outside of older fans interests who grew up with the Sonic franchise at that point.

Indeed. Both I and my kids love Sonic Adventure so it does appeal to both young and old.
The difference is my kids spent most of their playing time in Chao's Garden.

Old-school Ponychanners are nice but these days Ponychan is... well I won't say at all toxic just not how I remember it. I used to be everywhere on /oat/, now I doubt most are aware I lurk there. I'm just saying that as both a brony and a Sonic fan, I see the common factors. Sonic fans are just as dedicated to Sonic as bronies are to the ponies. Yes there is smut art of ponies which may make them look weird and outcasted to those outsaide the fandom but there's been smut art of Sonic and his friends since Rouge the Bat was introduced. And of course while the fandom is relatively at peace there is still debate and stupidity just as there is with Sonic's fandom. The only stark difference is that SOnic's been around since the 90s.

Chao Gardens were a gold mine for Sega and it's foolish of them to abandon them. I bet chao could of been on par with Pokémon if Sega had a well plan market strategy for them, though too late for that now.
But that what made the Sonic Adventure games so great, they had something for everyone than just "Reach the goal and go to next stage" like the Classic-era games had. It was a shame SA2 was more linear than it's prequal and Sonic Heroes just returned to "reach the goal" format. I bet Sonic '06 would of saved the Dreamcast-era gameplay if it wasn't a rushed mess which ended the Dreamcast-era gameplay.

May be that's why we never got SA2-like game anymore, they deemed it as failure since Sonic '06 failed.
Hopefully Sonic Frontiers would change that.

"We've got Colleen O'Shaughnessey, who was from the video game and played Tails, she plays Tails, Idris Elba's Knuckles, they're both awesome in it and they look awesome. Jim Carrey is incredible in it," he continued.
He then added: "Incredible guest stars. Natasha Rothwell, who's a powerhouse of a comedian, Adam Pally, who worked with (The Afterparty co-star) Sam (Richardson) and who's worked with me before, is in it and incredibly funny in it."

Sonic's Quills Are Staying Short In Frontiers, Some Fans Outraged

Sonic communities on both Twitter and Reddit have been locked in the heated debate for the past two days, with both sides eager for the other one to just stop.
One side wants to see a return of the Generations model, with its long quills and dark blue fur.
The others are fine with sticking to the Forces look, feeling that the naysayers are letting their feelings about the 2017 release cloud their judgement.

It's toxic way of thinking.
Sonic Team: Let's make another Sonic game with gameplay like from the Dreamcast-era.
Sega: Will you guys hurry up? It's nearing the holidays and we got to release it NOW!
Sonic Team: But the games not properly balanced and riddled with bugs, we're just not ready!
*Sega releases the game anyway*
Sega: Well the game was a hated mess. I guess fans didn't like the Dreamcast-era gameplay after all.
Sonic Team: Or they just didn't like the game.
Sega: Well regardless, let's move onto boosting to make up for how slow Sonic was and never look back.

They don't look the same to me given I can tell the Sonic on the right has shorter quills and I kinda prefer it over the Sonic on the right. But yeah, I don't see the outrage given it's not that different and it's still Sonic.

Back then the quills are even longer, but it never bothered me.

That same creator, known as ĐeäTh on their YouTube channel, has now almost finished a mod to complete the PC version with The Legend of Zelda DLC.
The mod of this DLC is set to arrive in mid-February with the developer having painstakingly recreated the stage; it looks like a rather impressive effort.

I honestly thought this DLC complimented the Lost World gameplay better than the main game did. I hope someone makes an extended version of this DLC, or better yet their own mod DLC. I'd probably buy Sonic Lost World for PC if there was more story-driven campaigns for it.

Yeah. As much as I don't like Sonic Lost World, I will admit nerfing Sonic's speed in exchange for parkkour skills does make him good for exploration over travel. I imagine if there ever was a Mario and SOnic crossover game then Sonic's Lost World gameplay would compliment Mario's gameplay.

Not that I want a Sonic and Mario crossover game outside the Olympics.

In Archie's Sonic the Hedgehog discontinued series, endgame refers to the Operation: EndGame four-issue arc where the traitor Drago the Wolf serves as Sonic's imposter and frames him for killing Princess Sally.
Of course, Surge obviously can't frame IDW's Sonic for murder since she looks nothing like him and is a tenrec, not a hedgehog.
But Dr. Starline does plan on using these imposters against Dr. Eggman much like how Archie's Sonic eventually straight-up murders Dr. Robotnik in Operation: EndGame.

The fact that Starline specified that this super-fast wi-fi was for playing multiplayer games implied that Eggman likes playing with other people.
He probably likes to annihilate them in-game and feel superior to everyone, sure, but that doesn't change the fact that he enjoyed playing with real players.
As such, it confirmed a part of him doesn't want to conquer the whole world and never will.

I don't get it. I mean sure Dr. Eggman being revealed as a gamer I can get, just don't get why that means he doesn't want to conquer the world deep down.If he conquers the world I imagine he will still allow his subjects a degree of freedom as long as they're loyal and devoted to him. Or the very least if robotomy treatment is mandatory for all then even as robots they're still allowed some degree of their own time to play and have fun or else what's the point in all those amusement parks that Dr. Eggman likes to set up?

Starline realizes that deep down Eggman just wanted to play games with Sonic all the time. His games of course.
That's why he upsets when Starline tried to kill Sonic just by try blowing him up from afar.
That's why he only imprisoned Sonic for 6 months in Sonic Forces when he easily could kill him anytime.

No, it's a project series for Year 2022 with Sonic Frontier, Sonic Prime, and Sonic Movie 2 being parts of it, to attract partners for toys, merchandises, and sponsorships.
The first project is releasing offline version of Sonic at Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games (mobile).
Funny thing is that they didn't mention Sonic Origin at all.

Starline realizes that deep down Eggman just wanted to play games with Sonic all the time. His games of course.
That's why he upsets when Starline tried to kill Sonic just by try blowing him up from afar.
That's why he only imprisoned Sonic for 6 months in Sonic Forces when he easily could kill him anytime.
It is likely Dr. Eggman has some sort of Joker-like facination on Sonic that prevents him from being efficient at his objectives.

Aaah so Project Sonic 2022 refers to the entirety of Sonic's marketing plan throughout 2022. That's good. As I said on SNN if Sonic Team ever decides to remake the Sonic Adventure games, especially with Dreamcast-era voice actors reprising roles, then they'll need production plans to cover development of the games, contracts of voice actors and the extention of work and time they have with Sonic Team as well as marketing and promotion. Especially if a remake of Sonic Adventure 1 and 2 may lead to Sonic Adventure 3.

My thought is like that too. The difference is Joker being too unpredictable.

Things like Chao Gardens in Sonic Frontier or Sonic Adventure 3 or "Chao Adventure 3" I can see how it can work if done right.

So many SEGA games sitting in Japan,
so if they could rebrand Puyo Puyo into Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine back then,
I'm sure they could rebrand Mushiking, Love and Berry and Dinosaur King into Chao's related game too if Sega wanted.

I agree. In comparison to pokémon which is a game more on the fighting concept, chao could still be about raising your creatures and the use of animals and evolutions to make them more unique. I just think the combat system should be a little more fleshed out. And it doesn't hurt to be flashy as Pokémon was in their combat.
And given those examples you mentioned involved these action cards that can be purchased means more merchandicing to profit from, though I imagine they would use digital cards given it be more cheaper to manufacture and control

One of my idea for chao is a new evolution state after Adult called Elder and will allow the chao to take more exotic shapes than it's usual stumpy body shape. Such shapes in mind being mermaid (swim), rabbit (speed), gorilla (power) and feathery (fly).

That way like pokémon, they can have more unique apperances that set them apart but still be recognisable with one another.

That would make more works for the game designer, but I guess that's necessary.
It's a good idea, but I don't like the wold "Elder" for Chao
Calling them "Elder" is kinda make them sound that they outlive Sonic and friends by being old first before them...

Let Sonic Team call 'em whatever they want. "Champions", "Ultimate", "Mega", I don't mind.

It's just when Pokémon came out in 1996 and got it's peak a few months after, Chao came out along with Sonic Adventure in 1999 and I believed if done right they could of at least give... Digimon a run for it's money. I mean I doubt chao would of made a dent to Pokémon sales. Actually saying they might have been better than Digimon would of been a stretch, I mean the anime was really what put Digimon to attention...

My point being  is chao could of been big if Sonic Team marketed them right. Pokémon was mostly about raising your monsters for battle, Digimon games actually put effort into the "raising" part of monster care while Sonic Adventure had a more fleshed out system for chao save for combat. Chao could of been a big thing if marketed right.

Kinda like Raving Rabbids, most seem to forget they started off in Rayman party game (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rayman_Raving_Rabbids) before becoming their own franchise..

Rabbid's really is a good comparison.
At first I think it's hard to top Pokemon in term of variety
since Pokemon contains many different animals while Chao is just one animal(?).
And then you mentioned Rabbids with basically just one animal and yeah, they're like Chao then.

Rabbid's now even got a movie now,
not just TV series and comic books,
imagine if Chao could accomplish this too someday.

What Pokémon have:
What Digimon (games) have:
What Chao have:
Chao are already pretty balanced when it comes to variety that is encouraged through TLC of the chao. But one of Pokémon and Digimon's selling points is flashy anime battles. I know Sega made MushiKing or Dinosaur King, but I imagine it's the same division of Sega who made these games whoever they are. I don't see why Sega can't get them to make a chao battle system for Sonic Team that recycles the concept. Yeah it's kinda cheap to recycle it but given DInosaur King and Mushiking arcade games didn't make it to the west means the gameplay will be more fresh to the western audience.

What Pokémon have:
  • You raise them specifically for battle.
  • You don't really "take care" of them, as in feeding or general health as expected from digital pets.
  • Come in a variety of creatures to collect. (I lost count after Gen 2.)
What Digimon (games) have:
  • I only played the one game (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digimon_World) but it emphasizes taking care of your Digimon like a digital pet. I remember getting stressed out over getting food and toilet for my Digimon as I travelled through the game, often my Digimon dying.
  • Honestly, I can't remember how battles work. I think it was cheering your digimon on to do better attacks or something.
  • Comes in a variety of creatures, I dunno how many. "Digivolution" was pretty cool though
What Chao have:
  • Like Digimon, you take care of your chao ina digital ept like fashion. But less stressful when it comes to feeding your chao and they don't seem to poop, so more easier to care for.
  • Battles were kind of naff. Chao Adventure had a roulette ATE for fights with "Bully Chao" and Chao Karate (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Chao_Karate) was mostly cheering them on with zeal which isn't that different from Chao Races. There wasn't any flashy attacks like Pokémon or Digimon with elemental effects or whatever.
  • Due to the metamorphic nature of chao, all chao are born the same (unless specified by the colour and shine of the chao egg) But they can grow and change in variety. They have the ability to take on animal features and change colour and shape depending on their allignment (hero/dark) and stat they excell at (speed, power, fly or swim) they take on a variety of shapes during their evolution.
Chao are already pretty balanced when it comes to variety that is encouraged through TLC of the chao. But one of Pokémon and Digimon's selling points is flashy anime battles. I know Sega made MushiKing or Dinosaur King, but I imagine it's the same division of Sega who made these games whoever they are.

Yeah it's kinda cheap to recycle it but given DInosaur King and Mushiking arcade games didn't make it to the west means the gameplay will be more fresh to the western audience.

So it's more like Digimon than Pokemon.
Yes, taking care of Chao, I don't think I remember doing that on Pokemon.

We got those Dinosaur King and Mushiking arcade games actually back then in my country,
but only few people that play them.
May be because they're still in Japanese (Google Lens wasn't a thing back then).
Love and Berry was more popular, but the ones who played it are mostly girls.
Those games are mostly gone now, but the cards are still available on online marketplace for collectors.

(https://s1.bukalapak.com/img/1535275911/large/dinosaurking_water__1_.jpg)

Rabbids are so annoying, but even I didn't know they were getting a movie. How can you even put a story to obnoxious screaming rabbits?

They had this one Rabbids character that's a genius, named Beardie,
who's definitely different than his stupid peers.
Even smarter than average humans.
He's the only Rabbids that's not annoying so you can guess that Beardie is the main character of the movie.

I know there were Dinosaur King trading cards in the west but I don't think they were the same as the ones the Japanese arcades had. I also know that MushiKing and Dinosaur King had the exact same gameplay, using a rock-paper-scissors combat system and the use of barcode cards to play with. I'm not entirely sure how the cards worked though.
But I figured, what if there were "Chao Battle Cards". Each card can only work for chao with specific attributes such as hero/dark or speed/power/fly/swim. Though I imagine it be easier for Sega to sell these battle cards as digital content than store-brought. Chao Adventure 3 can perhaps give the basic Battle Cards for free (or at least sell them with rings or ingame currency) while the more exclusive Chao Battle Cards can be purchased with real money. (Or Red Star Rings which I believe is the mobile Sonic games equivilent of Star Gems.)

so I won't mind if it's still being used.
And Red Star Rings, if SEGA HARDLight is the one who made the game,
guaranteed for sure they'll use them.

It's also happened quite often wasn't it when side characters become more popular than the main character?

(https://c.tenor.com/azCvjGfh3A4AAAAd/bugs-bunny-porky-pig.gif)

Bugs Bunny is more popular than Porky Pig.
Taz-mania was more popular than Bugs Bunny from some times.
Wolverine and Deadpool are more popular than Cyclops.
Darkseid is more popular than Mr Miracle.
Minions are more popular than Gru.
Woody Woodpecker is more popular than Andy Panda.
Yogi bear is more popular than Huckleberry Hound.
Constantine is more popular than Swamp Thing.

But in term of video games, yes Rabbids & Rayman is the most ironic case.

I'm hoping the game will be like Pokémon Go! or Wizards Unite. Both games published by Niantic who probably provide the satnav program to these games.
I love the idea of "Chao Adventure 3" being a lot like Chao Adventure (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Chao_Adventure) but instead of an auto-scrolling game you have to go out and actually walk around outside in order for your chao to encounter events. It would also be cool if Chao Adventure can have up to  two or three chao though I suppose just concentrating on the one chao is fine.
It's also happened quite often wasn't it when side characters become more popular than the main character?

(https://c.tenor.com/azCvjGfh3A4AAAAd/bugs-bunny-porky-pig.gif)

Bugs Bunny is more popular than Porky Pig.
Taz-mania was more popular than Bugs Bunny from some times.
Wolverine and Deadpool are more popular than Cyclops.
Darkseid is more popular than Mr Miracle.
Minions are more popular than Gru.
Woody Woodpecker is more popular than Andy Panda.
Yogi bear is more popular than Huckleberry Hound.
Constantine is more popular than Swamp Thing.

But in term of video games, yes Rabbids & Rayman is the most ironic case.
I wonder how Rayman feels being outshined by Rabbids?

Happy Lunar New Year!

This is Koha-D, the Representative of SEGA Arcade Music Game Team.
As the New Year has begun, I'd like to wish you a happy lunar new year and comment on two SEGA music games.

🔸 maimai DX International ver.

It’s been 2 years since the maimai DX International ver. started operation, which new version (UNiVERSE) released on January 27. Despite the fact that there are times and areas where stores cannot operate due to the effects of COVID 19, we have been able to achieve a high operation rate, thanks to everyone's enthusiasm.
Thank you very much for your support!
For various reasons, the music, collaborations, and several others have been delayed from the Japanese version, but we are still thinking of some surprises for you, so we would be grateful for your continued support.

🔸 CHUNITHM International ver.

Since CHUNITHM started its operation from the end of 2020, we've received a lot of feedback and we've changed our plans drastically from the original plan, adding songs at a rapid pace to bring it closer to the Japanese version.
Thank you for your support here as well as in maimai DX!
We are now in the final adjustment stage of the version-up to "NEW", which we reported at the end of last year, and we are preparing to provide it with some plans to activate the local player’s community.
For a variety of reasons, it is going to be difficult to make it exactly the same as the Japanese version, but we are working with the people in charge to make it as pleasing to everyone as possible.
We will be making an announcement on the specifics soon, so please look forward to it!

🔹 Lastly, due to the impact of COVID19, it has been difficult to enjoy arcade music games in both Japan and overseas.
I can only express my gratitude to all of you who continue to play our games even under such circumstances.
In order to respond to such enthusiasm, we, the development team, will continue to do our best to provide the best service possible. We would be grateful for your continued support.

We hope you'll continue enjoy maimai DX and CHUNITHM in 2022!

Koha-D / The Representative of SEGA Arcade Music Game Team / February 1, 2022

I don't want to be forced to walk outside to find Chao during this pandemic years.
Covid-19 rate in my country is really high right now.

I wonder how Rayman feels being outshined by Rabbids?

He's a good guy, I think he's gonna chill with it..

I'm glad Sonic made it into Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 but I still think the position should of been for Dr. Eggman on account his skills with Mean Bean Machines.

I was hoping Eggman at least show up as secret boss in PPT2, but considering Sonic didn't have his own story in PPT2 I guess that's really too much asking.

Oh right, I forgot COVID pretty much killed the AR satnav market. The height of Pokémon Go would of probably lasted longer if it were not for quarantine. I mean people still play it just outdoor social video games took a dive when we were encouraged to be morlocks.

I hope satnav AR games would recover. These games were ideal to encourage the average couch-potato gamer to actually get out for some fresh air and walking for a change.

Okay, so I have a rough idea of how NFTs work and I think he does as well if he plans on profiting from NFTs over buying them which most first-time NFT buyers make the mistake on understanding the value of NFTs and ownership of art and media attached to them.

To sum it up, you don't own the artwork assosiated with the NFT. You're not buying the artwork, you're buying the Non-Fungible Token.

Imagine a blockchain like an assembly hall filled with chairs with various pictures stuck to them (most of those pictures being ugly apes). An NFT is the right to sit on one of these chairs. You don't own the chair because it's digital, you don't own the picture or media attached to it because that's purely to differate it (therefore you cna use stolen artwork to sell NFTs but given it's not the artwork for sale but the NFTs means such loophole can be exploited. I wouldn't be surprise if Penders is using old Archie Sonic comic pictures).
That's why those ugly apes are assossiated with NFTs. Those ape pictures were made with a random generator and used solely to assossiate with specific NFTs.

There are those who buy NFTs because they foolishly believe they're buying the rights and ownership of the picture attached to them. They are not.
There are those who buy NFTs because depending on where the chair is set in the assembly hall (like chair #1 being more valuble than chair #2) makes them feel more privilege. Or buying more NFTs make them feel even more privileged.

In truth, NFTs are just digital recipts for something as useless as a virtual chair. NFTs are as valuble as the seller makes them out to be.

So in short, Penders is getting scammed here, it's likely he knows how NFTs work and is trying to get in on the scam himself.

Just a potential of course,
I'm not sure there will be Sonic fans who's ready to throw $100 just for that.
If he's dragged back into court because of his NFTs,
he'd probably love that.
It gave him another chance to show that he is the true owner.

NFTs do have money potential, thing is though it's still a scam. It's the equivilent of The Emperor's New Clothes (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Emperor%27s_New_Clothes). The conmen/tailours convinced the king that the clothes are made of some special fabric and the king is too embarrased to admit (or stupid to realise) there is nothing there. So he spends a lot of money on something he was told was super-valuble when really it was nothing.

Ken Penders just wants to scam us.

that's good to hear. I understand why NFTs may look like an aatractive business venture to other gaming companies and studios but it really is buying nothing with crypto currency.
Like, I sort of understand that buying AC Tickets on PSO2 and Red Rings on Sonic mobile games is buying digital content that will remain yours as long as the servers run, therefore you don't really own your purchase. But at least AC-products in PSO2 are straight forward about it than NFT crap.

Still, that could be a temporary decision.
If many other publishers made money from it, they'll soon join too.

Even Nintendo’s now interested in NFTs too : ‘We feel the potential in this area’
