IT's got stop motion puppets, really good stop motion.

And if they want more, might I recommend Testament: The Bible Animation. You can watch them all here.

HA! I'm an atheist-agnostic recommending biblical shows! Still, I just like the quality of the animation, and whenever you believe the stories or not they're still good stories.We do need good Riders content of late.

Thanks for the recommendation.
Well, I'm not a good Catholic either, constantly made jokes about religions and churches.

I hope Sonic Riders DX will have a workshop for people to submit custom made courses and racetracks.

There is also one more Sonic Riders fangame, right?
I saw it in the SAGE '22 Trailer.

Edit : Found it. It's Sonic Riders X.

I finished it it 7:72 or so. I'm sure I can do better if I want to speedrun it.

That's already fast enough.

Game Gear, Master System, and SG-1000 games playable on Analogue Pocket OpenFPGA







Quote
The new OpenFPGA feature recently made available to Pocket owners with firmware update version 1.1 beta.
In short, this allows developers to make all new “cores” for the Pocket’s FPGA hardware, allowing it to run games from other retro game hardware it was not originally intended to replicate.
This is an official update from Analogue, which they’ve made clear since the Pocket’s original announcement was something they’d always intended for it to have, even if it couldn’t be there on release.
Now that it’s finally here, the first new community developed cores included ones made to run Sega Game Gear, Master System, and SG-1000 games, created by spiritualized1997.
You can download these straight from their Github page.

“Sonic 2 / Sonic VS Knuckles” Movie is Now Started Airing in Japan
Masato Nakamura (DREAMS COME TRUE) Interview : "The music I made 30 years ago has evolved and led to the present."

"What led to the theme song for the movie was that Sonic game fans kept my music alive.
It wasn’t even credited, so everyone was free to cover it, and it was copyright-free.
That’s why people thought it must have been made by one of the SEGA employees."

Sonic Frontiers Merch Leaked,
DLC and Release Date Potentially Confirmed




Quote
The merch has a release date of November 15, which could point towards a release date of the game itself.
Sonic games usually hit around this time of year, so it wouldn’t be especially surprising.
The flier also makes mention of DLC, which could confirm that Sonic Frontiers will have some.

It too looks like it's base it's gameplay on the first.
Excellent, I never really liked the gameplay in the sequels... except gears in Zero Gravity and how they unlocked additional abilities when you level up, other than that nerfing slipstreams and making the boards gravity powered made the game less intense for me.

So, it's like fans upgrade / update for the first one?

They added more in the sequels but sacrificing the gameplays.

So, it's like fans upgrade / update for the first one? No HUD, no motion blur on screen.

They added more in the sequels but sacrificing the gameplays.
But it was the gameplay that made it feel more fast and intense.

Here's Dr. Eggman on Metal City from Sonic Riders. (No HUD, no motion blur on screen.)
Here's Tails on Megalo Station from Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity. (as it is, with HUD and blur effects.)

Is it me or even without it's screen effects the gameplay in Sonic Riders looks more faster and exciting than it does for Zero Gravity. Am I right about this or am I just crazy at these differences I'm noticing?

And given the first game makes use of a funnel of air that trails behind you when you're fast means your opponents can take the advantage meaning you have to work hard to keep your position, but isn't this disadvantage more fair than say, a blue shell?

No, you're right.
Riders feels more satisfying to play too.
The shouldn't try to fix what's not broken.

Blue shell is one of reasons why I hate Mario Kart series.
