I can handle it, but why do you want to delete your account?

@  Lito290 : (24 May 2020 - 09:02 PM)

How does one request the deletion of their account?

@  VHS : (21 May 2020 - 04:04 PM)

I gotta join that then

@  Shadow : (14 May 2020 - 01:17 PM)

Sure is. A lot more lively than here.

@  VHS : (02 May 2020 - 08:31 AM)

Oh shoot there's a Discord?

@  Nex : (25 April 2020 - 06:58 PM)

It's a disagreement between two people...n judging what goes on in there sometimes that's a very apt description xD

@  John Roberts : (25 April 2020 - 05:34 PM)

What's a Discord?

@  Nex : (25 April 2020 - 04:15 PM)

Activity is spread across forum, discord 'n the site chat room. There's life, it's just hiding under different rocks :D

@  RedAuthar : (25 April 2020 - 04:13 PM)

It's still slow. We ain't dead. Just close

@  VHS : (23 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Wait, I thought this place wasn't dead, it seemed active

@  VHS : (23 April 2020 - 11:20 AM)

I LIVE

@  wildfire : (22 April 2020 - 10:57 AM)

Ya know John, I wouldn't be surprised if it was me. At least I'm a bit more active these days

@  chief : (20 April 2020 - 05:24 PM)

Discod stays going pretty good

@  Nex : (20 April 2020 - 01:11 AM)

Is the Discord busy? Still trying t figure out where most of you monkeys hang out.

@  MauEvig : (19 April 2020 - 07:58 PM)

Well, I'll be chilling on the Discord. :)

@  John Roberts : (19 April 2020 - 12:32 PM)

It's just you, Wildfire. You're killing us mate!

@  wildfire : (19 April 2020 - 09:01 AM)

To be fair, there are more rapid forms of communication these days. The Discord server sees a far bit of attention. I remember the IRC too, but that's dead last I looked

@  MauEvig : (18 April 2020 - 08:10 PM)

A shame. And here I'm finally getting back into the spirit of everything Sonic. Well maybe we just need to liven things up. :)

@  furrykef : (18 April 2020 - 06:38 PM)

The forum's pretty dead at the best of times, really.

Wisps and Heroes huh, it's like Generations but we take the worst gimmicks of the previous games.

 

Sarcasm (and pandering) aside, there's no reason for the game not to be great. Did the other franchises fade out of memory for Sega deciding to put them away?

I'm thinking it's because Sonic is the more wildly recognized character. Sure, it would be nice to see other game franchises get a chance to shine, but the majority of them aren't as widely recognized as Sonic outside the gaming community.

 

Of course, its semblance to the "SEGA Allstars Racing" games is kinda problematic. I mean, it's not considered another entry in the series. Wouldn't it help further distinguish the game from its contemporaries if Sonic wasn't in a car? Or is that just me?

They are playing it safe imho, Sonic in a car implies car physics, which makes it easier to calibrate the physics and make a balanced roster. With Forces Sega made clear that for now they care more about the visuals and performance than they do for making fresh new gameplay.

 

Also there's no need to invoke a bunch of memespouters who will call it R2, the-next-sonic-06 and imply idiocy like I don't know Bubsy as a secret character. But Sega is clueless about the PR side of things anyway so I'm just putting this as a personal point.

I'm only a bit skeptical until I see Gameplay footage.  It looks good thus far though.

Not just you.  Honestly I liked the concept of R having some characters on foot and others using vehicles.  I feel it would be better to have Sonic race on foot, but that might be too complicated to program each character's controls uniquely.

I think SEGA is functioning on the belief that any buzz being generated will help advertise the game.  Since we still know little about it, they're probably letting the memespouters help spread word of the game.  As we find out more, they'll try and reign some of it in.

This is the same SEGA that said Sonic Forces wasn't Sonic Generations 2 even though both games used the "dimension-hopping Classic Sonic with 2.5D gameplay" shtick. True, it is not a sequel in name, but casual glimpses make SF look like a SG2. (Heck, SEGA has even contradicted itself on whether the Classic Sonic in Forces is Sonic from the past (like as in Sonic Generations) or Sonic from another dimension entirely.)

It's the same thing with Team Sonic Racing: it might not be a sequel in name, but people will consider it a sequel to All-Stars Transformed anyway due to the similarities.

As for why Sonic is in a car (except for Sonic R) in every racing game from the Game Gear through today:

You would think Sega could be creative and focus on a Sonic-themed racing/platforming game that focuses on Sonic and co. abilities to finish a course rather than driving supped up racecars.

I doubt that'll be a fair competition since speed is a necessary requirement when it comes to racing - which is something only Sonic and Shadow are best at. Placing everyone in cars makes it a more even match.

Not really.  Do you remember playing the 2 player mode from Sonic 2, 3, and Mania?  Sonic, Shadow, and Metal would have the highest speed, but other characters would have abilities to enable them even out the odds.  Tails and other flight characters could fly to certain heights and take shortcuts; Knuckles and Mighty could use their strength to destroy impassable routes. 

 

There's a reason I said racing/platforming game instead of racing.  The original Sonic levels were designed with many routes that utulized a characters' specific abilities so even though Sonic was the fastest character you could still beat the level faster with Tails or Knuckles using the level design and their abilities.  If it was a flat racetrack like most other racing games, then it wouldn't be much of a contest; however, add the level design of the Genesis games and you could have an interesting race.

It might be easier said than done. The games you sighted as examples are 2D games which are much simpler to create and program, but a full-on 3D title would require a lot more creativity, innovation, and energy than I think Sonic Team is capable of.

 

Actually, I'm having difficulty thinking of a 3D racing game that even has that style of gameplay.

Then why not focus on a 2d game?  2d games are just as much fun as 3d games.

So, I did finally end up getting Team Sonic Racing on the Switch. It's fun enough, but man is the story really lacking. I'm probably spoiled from not playing a modern Sonic game since Generations, but wow. I was entirely disconnected from what was going on the entire time I played story mode.
