This Is The Most Iconic Character In Gaming, Surpassing Mario (2nd) and Sonic (4th), Says BAFTA Gaming Awards







Quote
Lara Croft, the iconic heroine of the Embracer Group's Tomb Raider series, has been hailed as the most legendary character in gaming by the BAFTA Gaming Awards, edging out beloved icons like Mario and Sonic.
In a recent poll by BAFTA, where over 4,000 votes were cast, Croft emerged as the clear favorite.
Since her debut in 1996’s Tomb Raider for the Sega Saturn, Croft captivated audiences across various mediums, from video games to film adaptations and even live immersive experiences in London.
In the rankings, Mario ranked second, Hitman’s Agent 47 in third, Sonic the Hedgehog secured fourth place, followed by ...

Only Mania, Origins, and Superstars.
Forces and Generations are having both, right?
Modern Sonic still has much much more games than Classic, especially if mobile ones are counted.
Of course Modern Sonic has the most games, he's been around since the concept of "era-Sonic's" were established in Generations. Before then, Modern Sonic was just Sonic, and most still regard him as Sonic. It is to be expected Modern Sonic to have the most games and I am fine with that.

But still, Classic Sonic has had quite the attention since Sonic Generations. With games such as Mania, tritagonist in Forces, Mania Plus, Origins (if you count it) and Superstars, and also his appearance in Speed Battle and Speed Simulator.It would just be nice if we had some Sonic games in style of Dreamcast-era gameplay. Closest we have had of late is Adventure Sonic and Grind Shoes Sonic skins in Sonic Speed Simulator.

People don't regard "Dreamcast Sonic" a thing, regarding him the same as Modern Sonic. Or that a Dreamcast Sonic wouldn't look different to Modern Sonic. I believe a Dreamcast Sonic can be established as an "era-Sonic"... but I believe it would be neccisary to apply changes to Dreamcast Sonic to make them slightly different from how Sonic was during the Dreamcast era.

Such changes I would make to Dreamcast Sonic would be:
  • Middle-size between Classic Sonic and Modern Sonic in height.
  • Darker blue than Modern Sonic. Roughly cobalt blue in colour, instead of Modern Sonic's shade of #OF45D2.
  • Give him lankier arms and legs, such as slightly thinner biceps and thighs.
  • His quills being slightly jagged, to resemble the mid-poly count of the Dreamcast rendering. (the rest of him can still be standard hi-poly rendered, like Classic and Modern Sonic are.)
  • Voiced exclusively by Ryan Drummond. A voice different from Roger Craig Smith will make Dreamcast Sonic stand out even more from Modern Sonic by how they distinctly sound.
  • While the Grind Shoes were exclusive to Sonic Adventure 2, have them the signature footwear of Dreamcast Sonic.
Nah.. SEGA's Arcade R&D was very huge back then, even Taito, Capcom, and Namco's having hard time to top them.
Besides Donkey Kong was their only big hit in arcade.
Donkey Kong Junior, Mario Bros. (the original, not the Super), Donkey Kong 3, and Punch-Out!! couldn't even close to the original Donkey Kong's success.
Still... if Nintendo ever decided to put their hat back into the arcade business... they could probably give Sega a run for their money. While it would technically be a new "Sega vs Nintendo" corporate conflict, one I wouldn't be able to see unfold myself which would suck.
They're still too short. But I guess that's the nature of Tiktok videos.
At least they put them together in YouTube videos... though I still think these animators should consider wide-screen versions for YouTube.
We don't have it here so I kinda get how you feel about this.
I'm hungry for Sonic!
C.A. Martin bring us a gorgeous Official Super Sonic poster.
Plus trippy Psychedelic Art from SEGA. Fri 5 April.

Looks coo... until you notice both posters are practically the same except one has a slightly altered hue and replaces Sonic for Super Sonic.

Can't deny how popular Tomb Raider was... but I can't say her reputation help up against Sonic and Mario today.

The addition of grind shoes in Sonic Frontiers did at least confirm that Sonic Team is thinking that Dreamcast Sonic is still worthy to be given attention.
I hope they thought some ideas similar to yours.

May be ... then SEGA would reign in the console instead.

It's a variant version. We don't have to buy both, only pick one of those two.

I guess most of the ones who voted this grew up in 32-Bit era instead of 8-Bit and 16-Bit.[/q]

Fearless: Celebrating the Year of Shadow – SEGA announces celebration of Sonic’s not-so-friendly rival

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6Gx7OTn6H0









Quote
To celebrate all things Shadow the Hedgehog who made his debut in Sonic Adventure 2 for the SEGA Dreamcast, SEGA has unveiled their second annual fan celebration with Fearless: Year of Shadow to celebrate the amazing fans of Sonic and Shadow similar to last year’s campaign, Fast. Friends. Forever, which highlighted the special bond that Sonic and friends Tails, Knuckles, and Amy Rose share with their fans.
This year the focus shifts to everyone’s favorite brooding hedgehog, Shadow, who is set to star in the upcoming video game, SONIC X SHADOW GENERATIONS, as well as the highly anticipated movie, “Sonic the Hedgehog 3”, later this year. The campaign celebrates what it means to be Fearless and embracing your inner Shadow by bravely facing challenges head on.
Hit the article for more information on other events and action packed activations that will take place during the Year of Shadow.

hope so to, that or I hope I haven't jinxed it.

Perhaps in a multi-platform sense.

Ah I see. Seems a bit pointless, it's not Pokémon, but whatever.
I guess most of the ones who voted this grew up in 32-Bit era instead of 8-Bit and 16-Bit.
Perhaps. Not to say Tomb Raider games aren't as bad now, but I think every three games they go through a reboot. Given the Survivor continuity had its three games means Tomb Raider maybe renewed sometime soon.

Of course you won't. You never have a history of jinxing somthing, right? Right?

In the movie departement Lara Croft also has more movies than Sonic and Mario ... for now.

Sonic the Hedgehog Co-Creator Yuiji Naka Blasts Yu Miyake in Square Enix Shakeup



Quote
“I feel like saying “Finally, huh.” This person submitted a memo written with lies (and there is proof [of that]) at the trial, so I wish he’d be gone sooner. The person who became the new president may be a good person, even though I had never met him.”
Naka’s tweet spilled some tea. Seems there’s still bad blood between him and Miyake after their court battles. But hey, on the bright side, he seems cool with the new Square Enix prez, that Kiryu fella.
The Sonic co-creator’s time at Square Enix was, well, let’s just say a ...

Review: Sonic the Hedgehog X IHOP Menu – Blueberry pancakes and onion rings are a winning combination!





Quote
Sonic the Hedgehog speeds his way back into restaurants with a Sonic themed menu at IHOP (aka The International House of Pancakes), and SEGAbits was there to sample Sonic’s offerings! Longtime readers of the site might know I have an affinity for Sonic food promotions, so much so that I dedicated a YouTube series to chronicling past promotions. When SEGA emailed me to tell me about the limited time menu, I had to make plans to visit my local IHOP to see how the promotion was rolled out.
I have not been to an IHOP in decades, so I did not know exactly how they operated, but it’s a sit down diner with table service. The restaurant was surprisingly clean, and I say that because I’m used to the more mom and pop diners which prefer to show a little more grease. As far as Sonic decor, ...

Keanu Reeves cast as Shadow the Hedgehog in Sonic the Hedgehog 3 movie



Quote
The news was a rumor earlier today, leaked from discussions held at last week’s Cinemacon, and has since been confirmed by Variety. Keanu Reeves was a long hoped for casting decision by fans, and despite rumors of Hayden Christensen getting the role, it has since been clarified that such casting was only considered AFTER a rumor emerged of Hayden landing the role and Paramount considered it once fan sites ran with the rumor. However, Keanu was the top of the list for Paramount and it seems ...

That's one of forbidden questions.
Other forbiden question is "Could it get worse than this?"
Why? Because the answer is usually YES.
