That was the one part that made it tolerable.

She didn't have a voice.

Wonder if Shadow will be one? Knuckles is now an Assist Trophy

@  GamemasterAn... : (15 June 2018 - 06:52 AM)

I think the idea of the Echo Characters is an interesting way of dealing with the clones. That way they are recognized as being similar to other characters, but still allowing them to have their own "feel" as it were and allowing for the addition of other fan favorites who could be Echoes as well.

@  RedAuthar : (14 June 2018 - 10:43 PM)

Daisy has technically been in the game as an alternate skin to Peach since Melee. It's no different than Alph or the Koopa Kids.

@  LogiTeeka : (14 June 2018 - 10:14 PM)

Aw, I like Daisy. :(

@  Misk : (14 June 2018 - 03:45 PM)

And that rock is a clone of Dark Pit

@  Misk : (14 June 2018 - 03:45 PM)

I know, but I would have honestly preferred a rock to have been playable.

@  RedAuthar : (13 June 2018 - 06:27 PM)

She's basically a extra character like Lucina and Pitoo.

@  Misk : (13 June 2018 - 05:51 PM)

Why couldn't Daisy have been an Assist and give the slot to literally anyone else

@  Sunnyfruit : (12 June 2018 - 03:39 PM)

But of course if someone asks me I'll answer DMC5 hype.

@  Sunnyfruit : (12 June 2018 - 03:38 PM)

I was really happy for the new Crush 40 title

@  LogiTeeka : (12 June 2018 - 03:23 PM)

She's an Assist Trophy, at least.

@  Shadow : (12 June 2018 - 12:31 PM)

But no Midna =/

@  Uncle Ben : (12 June 2018 - 08:56 AM)

Ohh and Ridley got announced too but he looked broken.

@  Uncle Ben : (12 June 2018 - 08:56 AM)

INCLUDING SNAKE

@  Uncle Ben : (12 June 2018 - 08:56 AM)

EVERYONE IS BACK

@  Uncle Ben : (12 June 2018 - 08:55 AM)

So For Super Smash Bros. Ultimate....

@  Sunnyfruit : (12 June 2018 - 02:44 AM)

And the homing attack and a feeling of general awkwardness, but it's not exclusive to this title.

@  Sunnyfruit : (12 June 2018 - 02:42 AM)

I never had a problem of slippery controls, the only thing that I thought was weirdly implemented was the triangle jump.

....so it's Sega All-Stars Racing lacking non-Sonic Characters?

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:
