Sonic Frontiers Calls You A Dirty Little Cheater For Using A Speed Glitch



Quote
Thanks to the latest update, Sonic Frontiers can detect cheating.
This unexpected feature was first spotted by Reddit user JoBroDX, over on r/SonicFrontiers. They spotted the asterisk next to their time after blasting through the first Cyber Space level in just 39 seconds.
Right now, it's not clear if the devs plan to do anything with this ability to detect cheaters. It's possible that a future update will add a worldwide leaderboard, disqualifying any of the times that are marked as using a homing dash.
That's the most plausible explanation so far, since you can still earn an S rank with the exploit.

That got me thinking... Gotham City Imposters was about a gang war between those who idolized specific figures in the Batman franchise. What would such a game be like with... I dunno, Sonic and Eggman? Or just Sega and Nintendo in general?

SEGA and Nintendo are friends now with so
May be old SEGA fans (who grew up with Genesis / Saturn / Dreamcast) vs new SEGA fans (who grew up with Yakuza, Miku, Super Monkey Ball, Persona, maimai, Chunithm, Ongeki, and Valkyria Chronicles)?

I wonder if Silver even knows what ice is?

He still could learned it from school.
He's smart one so I guess he did attend school's classes.

I'm not much for rhythm games but I may get... Oh wait no PC release right?

Given the game is needing joycons as maracas to play so far yes, only Switch version is confirmed.

SEGA decided not to participate in E3 2023

Wasn'#t E3 popular because at one time it was open to the general public up until it was exclusive to investors and VIPs or something? So no wonder E3 isn't the biggest gaming expo any more.

How can it detect cheating from fairplay? I earned all my S-Ranks fair and square.

Sega and Nintendo maybe """friends""" but they could still market from their rivalry if done properly.

For example if you YouTube "Coca-Cola vs Pepsi" you will find loads of official commercials of the two brands hating one another.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=slwVFwPjUx4
But the thing is... both PepsiCo and Coca-Cola Company must have agreed and given rights to one another for adverts that allow their products to look inferior to the other, they consented to this because they knew the "rivalry" itself was marketable. If people are still arguing "Which is better, Coca-Cola or Pepsi?" then people with strong opinions on matter will continue buying both brands of drinks over it.

Sega and Nintendo could do the same if they wanted to given the history they had in the '90s. The next Smash Bros game could capitalize on this rivalry if they wanted to. It wouldn't hurt relations between them (any more than Nintendo already did) but they would both profit from the commercialised rivalry.

Silver says his world had always been ash and cinders since before he was born. I doubt there was much of an educational system in place at the time.

But surely the original game for the Dreamcast could of been played with regular controller?

Yeah, especially after pandemic, it forced gaming companies to organize, promote, and maintain their own gaming showcases.
And since it worked, they kinda longer need an event that's deemed to expensive to attend.

By testing first with TAS I guess but fear not since so far no "honest" players have been detected as a cheater, not even the article writer himself.

They always tried to paint thmself as a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, uh, company.
Unlike SEGA who doesn't mind being seen as an evil company in their new game.

He taught by his mother which is one of the most genius people in the world.
Ah... sorry..
I guess I mistakenly remember him as Trunks.

It could but it wasn't as fun (hard to do, playing with maraca is quicker since we just have to move hands and each maraca has an infrared transmitter mounted on its cord so the inputs were being registered very fast too).
It also took away its uniqueness.

As of January 1 2024, Steam will officially stop supporting the Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 operating systems.



Quote
After that date, the Steam Client will no longer run on those versions of Windows. In order to continue running Steam and any games or other products purchased through Steam, users will need to update to a more recent version of Windows.
This change is required as core features in Steam rely on an embedded version of Google Chrome, which no longer functions on older versions of Windows. In addition, future versions of Steam will require Windows feature and security updates only present in Windows 10 and above.

Sonic Mania and Origins developer Headcannon confirmed to be working on Origins Plus, promises “updates and enhancements”






Quote
Headcannon confirmed today that not only is the small team behind the addition of Amy Rose in all titles and Knuckles in Sonic CD, but also they “were also able to supply a few additional updates and enhancements to help make the title the best it can be” and added, “we appreciate [SEGA’s] openness to our feedback and suggestions.”
This is great news, as SEGA seems to respect Headcannon’s criticisms and took them to heart rather than showing the team the door for making public statements that (rightfully) criticized the game.
We can ...

E3 2023 canceled



Quote
“This was a difficult decision because of all the effort we and our partners put toward making this event happen, but we had to do what’s right for the industry and what’s right for E3,” ReedPop global vice president of gaming Kyle Marsden-Kish said in a statement.
“We appreciate and understand that interested companies wouldn’t have playable demos ready and that resourcing challenges made being at E3 this summer an obstacle they couldn’t overcome. For those who did commit to E3 2023, we’re sorry we can’t put on the showcase you deserve and that you’ve come to expect from ReedPop’s event experiences.”

It;'s sad. E3 was up there and it was common gamers like you and me that made it worth while. But when they became exclusive to VIPs, investors and what not it lost it's way.
By testing first with TAS I guess but fear not since so far no "honest" players have been detected as a cheater, not even the article writer himself.
Oh that's good.
It could be done but I doubt Nintendo would want that.

I always regard Nintendo the sort to push Sega down the stairs and under press conference about it just say how clumsy Sega were.
"Partners" my ass.

Yeah Silver is from a thousand or so years into the future and is confirmed an orphan. I doubt he knows what ice is.

I guess. Only way I can see a Saba Di Amigo game work without buying a hard copy with maracas would be a VR release.

I'm glad Sonic Frontiers got there but the fact it's third to Company of Heroes and Like A dragon I hope Sega won't shift their interest away from Sonic.

Atlus Suggests New Sega Mascot After Sonic's 'Murder'



Quote
Of all the demons and Personas that have been designed and included in each game, one in particular stands out among the rest and is considered Atlus' mascot That SMT demon would be Jack Frost, with the snowman first appearing in Megami Tensei 2, before adopting its most iconic design post Shin Megami Tensei 1.
Since the frosty fellow's longevity worked for Atlus, the company's Twitter suggested that he could be Sega's mascot instead of Sonic.
