Both really, though she added more to the latter one over the past weekend

You mean with the Hermione was black all along, or the Dumbledore was secretly gay?

I am absoultely convinced JK Rowling is trying hard to stay relevant.

@  furrykef : (17 March 2019 - 02:30 PM)

I mostly just check in to validate new users and to zap spambots. Obviously, we get far, far more spambots.

@  randomizer : (17 March 2019 - 12:08 AM)

I pop in every couple of days but I don't really have much to say so I mostly just lurk.

@  wildfire : (15 March 2019 - 11:33 PM)

Not looking for anything particular here, but since we got people checking daily, I thought I'd point out that I posted a new topic in SatAM Chat. Show a guy some love and check it out.

@  wildfire : (15 March 2019 - 10:56 PM)

bout the same for me too. I honestly don't remember at this point.

@  Shadow : (14 March 2019 - 01:50 PM)

I been here since I was 14 years old.

@  John Roberts : (14 March 2019 - 12:39 AM)

I lurk, too. Sometimes. Maybe us seniors should just meet up at a retirement village.

@  John Roberts : (14 March 2019 - 12:38 AM)

Hiho Wildfire!

@  wildfire : (13 March 2019 - 10:39 PM)

It doesn't help that everything i post on dies. But seriously, I do try and poke my head in from time to time. FUS was family to me for several years. I doubt I'll ever truly leave.

@  Shadow : (11 March 2019 - 04:43 PM)

I did mention before on the idea of a monthly podcast channel.

@  ShenFNWoo : (11 March 2019 - 06:06 AM)

Yeah, it's that kind of thinking that keeps this place dead, mang :\

@  wildfire : (10 March 2019 - 07:42 PM)

I still pop in from time to time. I'm like a professional lurker. As a senior member I think its fair to say I've earned that right. ;) Miss you guys.

@  ShenFNWoo : (10 March 2019 - 07:18 AM)

Rereading that, a lot of that came out completely wrong. But then again, it is a shoutbox, I don't know what the max word count is on the thing.

@  ShenFNWoo : (09 March 2019 - 07:25 AM)

As I've said many times before... IF the problem is that they themselves can't do it, then the guys running this place could possibly outsource in some form or fashion to people with more time to help work on this comic here. There's clearly people willing to pay for it, and even crowdfunding might be an option.

@  ShenFNWoo : (09 March 2019 - 07:23 AM)

There's really nothing stopping us. All we have to do is want to do this stuff.

 

Dr. Phil once said bored people are boring. Why a clinical psychologist who admits that most of the problem is of a functional nature within a patient's brain would believe this, I don't know, but there IS truth to that. Those who can't find something to try to work with to have or make a good time are usually just devoid of character themselves.

@  ShenFNWoo : (09 March 2019 - 07:21 AM)

I have a friend that's working on our game concept ideas who has major depression and horrible anxiety, 3 kids and a horrible job that takes up most of his day. He constantly gets on some of our team member's cases (even mine) about how there's 24 hours a day, and how Schwartzenegger's motivational speech can do wonders for us.

@  ShenFNWoo : (09 March 2019 - 07:19 AM)

OR we can make our own sonic stuff, and put together something that could tide us over until the 'official' sea3on starts back up.

@  ShenFNWoo : (09 March 2019 - 07:18 AM)

We're all here because we like Sonic. We want more of it. When there is no Sonic to speak of, we could EASILY branch off into other topics, and continue discussing that stuff instead.

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.
