Maybe it's time for us to leave Sonic Team's take on its own series behind

sonicyoda

10 months ago

Like others have said, I think Forces is catering for the younger Sonic audience who've grown up with the 3D games more than the 2D ones. I'm also glad to see Sonic Team reiterating on a tried and tested formula with Forces cause it follows the Sonic Unleashed/Sonic Colours/Sonic Generations mould which has been improving with each release. Sonic Team's problem is always when they try to reinvent the wheel (case in point, Sonic Lost World). I'm quite happy for a modern Sonic Team series to coexist with a classic retro Sonic-inspired series. Everyone's covered in that scenario.

Interesting seeing Tony Takoushi's name come up. He would end up being SEGA Europe's software manager and he also wrote the rather fantastic Sonic 2 Gold Guide which I was enamored with in my youth

Gone Home console review

Genuinely beautiful game and as someone with a penchant for tapes, I appreciate being allowed to barge into rooms and blast riot grrrl mixtapes. I also thought it was kind of refreshing for the story to resolve in a happy ending as I was really rooting for the characters.

I was a little bit disappointed that you barely said anything about the actual content of the show in favour of just saying "the Silent Hill fan-base is lucky that something like this is happening" so I wrote some words of my own here.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 gameplay footage, post-graphics change

sonicyoda

3 years ago

I must admit the new look does look a little cleaner but it still doesn't look like something from the last gen. It also still looks like it has that weird sloppiness to the animations that made Tony Hawk's HD feel so weird and spongy. Robomodo just aren't Neversoft at the end of the day.

Yogventures studio reveals troubled development, how Yogscast "lost faith" early on

sonicyoda

4 years ago

Nothing was scammed, no one and I mean NO ONE has gotten rich from this effort
Because we had worked out a contract that guaranteed each of the principal artists a $35,000 lump sum payment, and we didn't make any clear clause on how and why someone could legally stop working on the project.

The artist in question got paid, worked for about two weeks and then stopped working on the project. We had no way to force that person to pay back any of the funds and it was a bitter lesson to learn.
Right.

How are Sega's video games selling?

sonicyoda

4 years ago

I'd say these numbers were pretty decent. Yes, it's a decrease on last year but as you can see from pretty much every publisher, that's a problem that's spread across the board.

Interesting figures are Sonic Lost World which has shifted a decent amount considering the Nintendo exclusivity and Ryu Ga Gotoku has had a similarly good run considering it's Sony AND Japan exclusive.

I agree that a lot of these games don't really represent the SEGA of old (3 of the games are bloody PC strategies) but times are changin'. We could use a bit of that blue sky love this year. Also PSO2 Western release please.

I understand you're trying to make this relevant to video games but your eulogy basically reads "Bob Hoskins died. He played Super Mario and he hated it." Not much of a legacy you're portraying there.

Genuinely quite sad about this one. Bob played Eddie Valiant in Who Framed Roger Rabbit? which remains one of my favourite films of all time. RIP Bob; thanks for the memories.
