  1. Psycho the Frog added a topic in Comics   

    We need stuff like this for the comics
    I don't know if anyone here would remember me or not but I signed up here a long time ago, I just didn't comment here that much, lol.
    Now for the topic at hand, I've been thinking for a while that the archie Sonic comics needs people doing more to represent them and talk about them in a more in depth level, in both the good and bad content and complaints it gets(Many from who I think don't even read them). Two examples here are 2 different video series:
     
    Not saying it has to be a video series, but anything, even if a blog or something. I've been planning on this for a while for my deviantart gallery, it's mostly memes, but aside from something else I have planned, I touched on a certain even in the archie comics: http://psyco-the-frog.deviantart.com/art/Amadeus-Protest-178-561500727
    I don't know whenever I'll get to it, but it'll go across both my deviantart and Tumblr pages. What I wanna know is what you guys think of the idea and if what events within the comic could be discussed, or even the complaints they get.

  2. Psycho the Frog added a post in a topic The Sonic '06 thread   


    If anything, it's not so much that the game needed fixing, but the development hell that went on during the project. Notable events I heard from a friend of mine:
    Yuji Naka leaving during development, most of the ideas going into this game were his.
    (Note, bakc in the 90's Yuji Naka left the Sega of Japan branch to come here to America because Sonic was more popular here, and because he wanted more freedom. One of the factors in the success of Sonic 2).

    Half the team was split off to work on Sonic and the Secret Rings while this game was still being made, splitting man power.

    Bug reports were ignored by Sega.

    On another hand, Izuka could've made this game right after Sonic Adventure 2 and save us all the hassle. He decided not to make this, or SA3, because he thought only hardcore fans would get it, so he choose to make Sonic Heroes for the more casual fans as well. Also, to my Knowledge, Heroes was the first 3D title made by SOJ, following 06 and everything else.
    Keep in mind that the main reason for Sonic X-treme being canceled was also on the part of SOJ, as one of their representatives came over and wanted the entire game redone when it was near complete. While trying to redo it, most of the SOA Sonic Team(the rest after Shadow I think) team was fired, till there was one guy, who I heard worked hard on the remake until he became fatally ill, which resulted in the Sega Saturn getting a port of Sonic 3D Blast. Keep that in mind folks, SOJ being heavily responsible for 2 dev hells and the total Darnation of the series characters. Wit the way SOJ handles things, this game had no chance, and the rest of the series doesn't either if games like Lost World keeps up. ;)

    if you mean the fan game I was talking about, here:
    http://sonicrevolution.org/forums/index.php?/topic/887-sonic-revolution-the-gamebeta/

    Don't wanna derail this topic, but I think using this game or Sonic Robo Blast 2 for this SATAM thing would be a much better idea, since it'll actually be a game and not just a minecraft thing.

  5. Psycho the Frog added a post in a topic What do you want in a STH game?   

    Yeah, keep forgetting about that game, but there's also Little big Planet, and the Ratchet games also have a good deal of platforming, but it's main emphesis is on shooting. Back to Rayman, I've been meaning to buy Origins or Legends. I heard from a friend that Legends isn't worth it's price, since it's just like origins, but I'm might get that anyway, for those fairies. :wub:



    lol? Sorry to hear you can't play it though, if you really wanted to try it.


    It's a lot worse, as it seems Sega doesn't care about the entire series at all, only making games now because it still makes them money, and(this is for real), hiring the writers who's been on since Colors, and they don't know anything about Sonic. I've heard recently that one of the writers only did research through playthroughs on youtube, and Wikipedia, while the only info Sega gave them was about the Deadly Six. Let that sink in.... Sega DID NOT give the writers the info they needed on Sonic, but did for the D6.....


    It's the one thing most Sonic....Nintendo.... fans don't know. They're too busy cheering about how Mario is the best platformer, when there's no real reason as to why unless they conpare him to Sonic, then it's all about popularity and issues with Sonic that Mario doesn't have, never any reasons as to WHY their good, just why THEY THINK he's better then Sonic.

  6. Psycho the Frog added a post in a topic (Idea) Full replication of SatAM in Minecraft   

    Sounds pretty dope if you ask me. I never had any interest in Minecraft though, but I'd try to help if I was playing it.

    On another note, there was a guy making Sonic fan games who also wanted to get other Sonic fans to work with him, and use the project to creat one big beat'em up game. He also had plans for Sonic Robo Blast 2, and if they could remake Conker's Bad fur day on that engine, and i think it'll be an even better place to recreate SATAM.

    Sure, whenever you have time. You wont get info like this from most other Sonic fans on the net, so pay good attention to this. :)


    Shadow with.... wait... you don't know about Shadow the Hedgehog?


    Camera's like that have been an issue for many 3D action games.


    Naw, by that time, they had already fires the US branch, at least the Sonic Team, and absorbed all that was left of it. I think 06 didn't get patched because they just stopped caring. All this happened in the first place is because Yuji Naka left during development, and many of it's elements were his ideas, this half the team was taken off to work on Secret Rings, and Sega ignored bug reports. Also, Izuka decided not to make SA3 because he thought only hardcore fans would pick it up, so he made Heroes instead, for the casual crowd. Had just gave SA3 the green light or something, 06 wouldn't happened at all.
    It's also worth noting that every Sonic game since SA2 had some goal in mind for audiance or other goals, rather then furthering the series itself:
    Heroes: Casual crowd.
    Shadow: Older/American fans
    06: no word on this
    Unleashed: Warehog was added to pad the game
    Colors: Was made for kids and Nintendo fans
    Generations: Nostalgia whores
    Lost World: Mario/Platforming fans(this being a big mistake since most of these game were called "action" games back in the day, since most of them had more emphasis on action then platforming. Only games like Mario can really be called playformers since Mario barely had any action outside of different jumps.)


    Cool. :)

    Trust me, they're fun as hell, and this new game, Into the Nexus, is only 30$, and I heard you get a free copy of another R&C game, Quest for Booty, when you buy it.


    Yeah, a lot of people don't know about Sega of US and JP fighting(I would assume with only a handful of people talking about it), but much of it can be summed up from these quotes in this article:

    Sorry for all the links, but once you get a chance to read that stuff, you'll realize what's up.


    I'm really ok with Shadow using guns, if anything, they could be added as an extra type of weapon if you want to use it, but it wont be forced(because the original game was SOOOO bad because of it, when it wasn't even teh main issue, since Sonic characters used weapons before. See Tails Adventure).

  9. Psycho the Frog added a post in a topic Sonic Lost World   

    I've already had a pretty negative opinion of this game, and seeing a lot of an entire playthrough of the game, it seemed that everything I thought badly about this game was actually worse. However, I heard hours ago that the 3DS version got a demo, so I DLed it and tried it....didn't enjoy it al that much.

    So, I already didn't like the music, bad villains, bad storyline, looking like Mario, but the gameplay is barely enjoyable as well, and I'm not even the type to judge games purely on gameplay, but like many Nintendo titles, it's the only thing to give a care about in this game.

    I'm still on the fence about buying this, but if I do, it's gonna be a used copy, I'm not paying full price fo dis crap, I was already disapointed with Sonic generations.....

    Think you meant to say Nintendo there buddy. Not trying to be funny or anything, typos are a part of life. :) Then again, with all the infighting between Sega of America and Japan, Japan causing most of the trouble, that actually could be accurate.
    Also, yeah, that could've happened, and even better, Sonic maybe getting into Playstation All Stars. With Jak nerfed, he would be a nice second choice. :D

    Dunno about this being a cross buy though, but if you just now own a PS3, I recommned checking out any Ratchet and Clank game you can find, they're pretty good. All 4 one and Full Frontal Assualt aren't very popular but I stil found them fun, plus, both game offer co-op gameplay(4Players for A4O).

    Take this here:
    [media=]

    and make these changes:
    Replace Ratchet and Clank with Sonic and Tails
    Add other characters
    Hand the guns to shadow
    keep levels in trailer for other characters, and let speed characters(Sonic,Shadow,Espio) get more Sonic like level designs
    Add different kinds of music genres for stages, like Rock, Hip-hop, Break beats, Nu Skool Break beats, and maybe some Dubstep(Boss battles and industrial/metal stages)

    Pretty much what I want in a Sonic game. :)

  12. Psycho the Frog added a post in a topic SEGA or Nintendo: Which do you prefer?   

    And that's really Sega biggest flaw, they can actually still make good games, but they never advertise. I had to check their main site just to see that they made Binary Domain, but then they rely so much on Sonic to sale, that they wanna focus on introducing Sonic to new fans, Nintendo fans:
    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2010-10-11-sonic-redesigned-to-appeal-to-mario-fans

    "From a general game design perspective, in recent years we've been able to introduce Sonic to new fans - a lot of the Nintendo/Mario fans - and because of that, we've made changes to the design
    Earlier this month, SEGA also admitted to tweaking the brand to appeal to gamers who like, well, good games."
    Yeah, because when EVERY game thinks of good games, Nintendo and Mario games are all people can think of, definitely not .... I dunno, ANYTHING ELSE!
    The F*ck, are these guys not away that even Nintendo has franchises that would work better with Sonic then Mario, or even this crossover of 3 Sony series:


    The best part about that is that Sonic Adventure 2 has been selling well on Xbox Live and Playstation Network, so yeah they already are getting fans, plus Sonic can gamecube games, so these Nintendo fans ain't new, in this regard.

  13. Psycho the Frog added a post in a topic SEGA or Nintendo: Which do you prefer?   

    The made Hell Yeah!, Yakuza Dead Souls, Binary Domain, Renegade Ops, All-Stars Racing Transformed, and a few others, but they mess them up by not advertising them, which is what got Platinum Game messed up, cause many people actually wanted to play Anarchy Reigns, but Sega decided to delay the game for no good reason, even after it was finished and translated, with no mentioned when it was coming out this year, then release it in January with no word on it at all. Also cancelled 2 Streets of Rage games(recent ones), and had 1 of the very few fan games of the original series pulled off the site for some gripe about protecting their IP(saying this while not doing anything at all about all the Sonic fan games out there, one guys even telling someone who works for Sega about the Sonic Megamix Rom hack, SO THEY DO know about it). Overall, Sega is messed up, but most of what their bad decisions ultimately came from Sega of Japan which still proves to be a stigma for Sega even today, but overall, they're always better the Nintendo: http://dj-vgamer.deviantart.com/art/Sonic-Issues-Bronies-Cute-Light-themes-375499938

  14. Psycho the Frog added a post in a topic Sonic slowly turning into a Nintendo game   

    Hell, they don't even need to make changes, just make Sonic Adventure 3, add elements from the first 2 games and 06, actually FINISH the Darn game, and change the title. This way, people don't get P*ssed off at it being called Sonic Adventure 3, and the people who want it can finally have the kind of Sonic game they've wanted for years. Really, we keep talking about what the fanbase wants and being broken, but we all know the Sonic series has only been for certain Sonic fans since 06, and that's not really fair to everyone who stayed with this series, even through the "bad" games.

    BTW, if you guys really wanna know how to save save Sonic, read this: http://conflictingviews.wordpress.com/2012/12/14/how-to-save-sonic-post-9000/

  15. Psycho the Frog added a post in a topic Sonic slowly turning into a Nintendo game   

    First off, I said I think their games suck, I don;t know how that translated to hate. Also, me and a friend bring up Epic Yarn all the time, and he showed me the sales, and it bombed, even then, nobody can defend the game, all anyone can say it "you need to try it first" or "it sold well", but since you're the only one hwo said it had an unique style, let me go on record by saying it doesn't automatically mean good. Also, I don't listen to reviewers, they say whatever they want about a game for their own agenda. :P
     
     
    I like how nobody who brings up that rivalry just can't say that Sonic won it, it was more then just being popular, Sonic and Sega flat out beat Nintendo till Donkey Kong came back, and won due to graphics, where Sega responded with Vectorman. I would go into the rest of your message, but this isn't about what Nintendo has done for games or their history, it's what they have been doing recently, and how the games they make now can only succeed through name and not much else, plus, all the things they've done to ruin it for the guy who wrote that article I posted, and he IS, or was an NIntendo fan:
     
     
     
     
     
     
    This topic wasn't about being exclusive at all, it's about Sonic being made to please Nintendo fans, and not Sega fans, but of course, Nintendo fan wouldn't have a problem with that either, despite the games they're making now are either killing their characters or barely that good. Also, Sonic Colors sold well because more fans who were butthurt about what had been going on with the Sonic series needed a game that catered to them just to be good. Instead of telling the devs to make their games better and blaming Sonic's failures on their own poor dev skills, they blamed it on the characters, storylines, and having dark elements in his game, despite dark elements being present even back in the day, from the games, cartoons, and comics, but even with that, Sonic was always an all-ages titles, even Shadow was rated E10(Smash bros Brawl was even rated T), so the age range had nothing to do with this. Also, Sonic games may sale well on Nintendo titles, but you have to ask WHY that is, and it's because Sonic lost his appeal with the rest of the games, so nobody is going to buy his game when they're not even cool anymore, but the funny thing is, I've heard a few times that SA2 had been one of the best selling title on PSN, top 5 for a while actually, but usually in debates like this, people never wanna bring that up. Of course, SA2 still ha the original appeal of Sonic, I mean really, did you think a game like Sonic Colors was gonna sale well on the same shelf as COD, Gears of War, Prototype, Assassin's creed, and Saints Row? It's about appeal, and Sega of Japan keeps killing it off in order to appeal to Nintendo fans, the people still playing those bad title Nintendo makes nowadays, claiming them to be good or down playing their own failures.
