The blazing blue hero is faster than lightning and he's going to put a stop to Dr. Eggman's plans yet again... or is he?
Looks like sega is also taking a page out of Insomniacs how to make a great game book, just like Nintendo did with Mario Galaxy. C'mon anyone can see the Ratchet floating bits here,the rail grinding. Please, what next is he gonna throw a wrench and talk to a robot too? Maybe pull out a cannon? We've already seen Nintendo's dastardly, diabolical plan to cover up the fact they never played Ratchet & Clank, yet Going commando and Mario Galaxy are near discernible only by character alone and for the fact R&C going commando came out 6 years ago on top of it. Insomniac needs some royalty checks from these guys. With that said, the new Sonic game looks pretty good. I admit it is a long ways from where we were with the SA games but a far shot away from the 2-d days. The days when Sonic actually meant something and mattered.
To be fair a lot of games copy from other games. Although most developers will admit where they got there influences from. Something that Nintendo did not do with Mario Galaxy. And before people bash me I have a Wii and played Mario Galaxy which I thought was a decent game IMO. Back on topic I'm hopeing this game turns out good. I really want to play a good Sonic game.
" the rail grinding" i hope you are kidding.......i really hope you freaking are. you just sound more and more pathetic >_< stop trolling.
...are you serious?!
I laughed Miyamoto one of the most talented game designers in the world copied Ratchet and Clank? Don't have too big of an ego trip kid. That looks damn sexy though. Hopefully it plays well.
Play Ratchet and Clank going commando for 15 min and tell me Miyamto didn't steal every single shred of DNA for Galaxy from R&CGC. I dare you to come back here and try to tell me that. It's the exact same gameplay. Right down to traveling around spherical planets, man. the gravity, the traversal, the way it zooms and pans. All of that was in Going Commando back 6 years ago. & if you really want a shocker take a trip to the Insomniac Museum located in R&CGC for some more eye opening "MY GOD NINTENDO RIPED INSOMNIAC OFF" Moments. trust me. I was shocked when I seen Galaxy for the 1st time and more so played it. Anyone here who's played R&CGC or even part 3 knows I am right.
I just dont see that.. Near identical? Only if you believe for two things to be identical they need only be vaguely similar. Like you would consider two blondes to be near identical simply because both have the same color hair. One could argue that they copied Mario simply by making a platformer that was similar to Mario64 in some ways.
Mario wasn't the 1st 3-d platformer. Do your homework. Bubsy and jumping flash far exceeded Mario 64 as a true 3-d platformer, and if you want to get technical about it Clockwork Knight, Bug too aswell. Play the damn game. Don't just sit here and try to be snide. Play the damn game, play them both in one sitting. Get to planet 2 of R&C and tell me that Mario Galaxy didn't steal the damn gimmick. Backup your idiotic claims by playing it and serve yourself some nice humility when you were proven wrong. I am so sick of people discrediting R&C without playing it. you don't know what the hell it is about apparently and you sound really idiotic to people who have played it because all the elements in Mario Galaxy were present in R&C many years ago. Age and deal.
http://image.com.com/gamesp... Ratchet & clanks 2nd planet, oh 6 years before Galaxy got to the punch bowl.
" Bubsy and jumping flash far exceeded Mario 64 as a true 3-d platformer" I LoLd, you pretend your opinion is the one and only opinion. But the platform elements were there way before R&C, using a weapon in game is done way before R&C etc F etc but do i see you whine about that ? JUST STFU ? =) edit: or how Sonic did the whole rail grinding? or that bionic commando already did the swingin? The music to stop enemies in Rayman:RR??? and there is lots more going on there....really give it a freaking break. If nintendo stole the whole planet thing ( ...the fact they already did the concept in 2D on the SNES And sonic already doing it in SA:2 ) then the makers of R&C are freaking talentless when it comes to NEW idea's ;)....according to your logic ofcourse.
it does look good but i'd rather wait for demo and reviews before i buy it.
This one is growing on me, still i need to try before i buy, sega have got nearly a decade of disapointment to make up for
introducing sonic the wrecking ball. why is it that he can now run head first into almost everything?
have you played sonic rush on the ds? he can mow down things by holding down a button if you have built enough charge you can use it for a short time as a kind of sheild attack and run enemies down, kinda cool and usefull if you dont want to slow down the action too much. works really well.
im bying it !! sonic has always been part of my gaming expercience since i was a kid, i can neva forget the sonic on dreamcast, it was a really good game !!
DAmn they got me fooled >_< i though the whole city was made out of 3d models but at some point its just a plane texture >_< DARN IT! i was actually amazed by it when i saw it in SD. But its going really fast 0_o.... Awesome indeed
I don't want to get excited by this game... but it looks pretty good.
we all know the ps3 version will end up so much more inferior
WTH was that comment about ?? Are you some MS paid loser? Seriously??WTH? Do you know that Sega is no longer a Top Dev team . The graphics you see are basically based on PC technology and what would be considered to be basically Graphics more suited for the Dreamcast with MORE RAM!!!! Perhaps 512MB OF Fast VRAM On the Power VR chip!!! Nothing here is screaming Next-gen so don't start a Next Gen BS Thread..
That wasnt the wii version. Thats for sure. Lol. Man, Im such a pro.
As i said, Sonic died with Sonic 3 (and Sonic & Knuckles, i like dit). The rest is junk, over all if the game plays alone =(
sorry it looks like its coming back to its roots, its going to be revived, if they're doing the game this way
I'll withhold judgment until the game comes out, however I have high hopes for this one. The last Sonic Wii game wasn't too bad. Sonicteam might get it right this time. Half-way through the trailer, did anyone think of the game Screwjumper when Sonic was falling down the hole/well? It wasn't a good game by any means (Xbox Live arcade) but free falling was the only thing you did in the game, lol (I only tried the demo btw). Reminds me of Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction too, but it wasn't the first thing to come to mind.
Tools of Destruction came to my mind, so I can see the PS3 version having some SIXAXIS control shoved in there, but yeah, Screwjumper came to mind as well, hopefully it's not like that, that game sucks.
Is how big the environments are. It's very impressive and everything is shinny. I'll be picking up the PS3 version.
power of the xbox 360 anyone agree?
that awesome "power" has been known to overheat your mother board. power is nothing without control. On topic: looks like all u do is push forward!? (and occasional timed button sequences, which i hate.) i'm skeptical after the last sonic games.
OMG! SOn! that sh*t looks NaSty!
this game is copying Ratchet and Clank with the rail grinding? It's a Sonic game. Rail grinding has always been a part of Sonic games. If anything, Ratchet copied Sonic with the rail grinding. You might have a case with the free falling, but that wasn't invented by Insomniac either.
Only Silogon :P
This one looks fun, a little of the same but moreso on a world stage.
And this is the reason I like sonic as a platformer the most.... am getting both X360 and Wii version which looks good too and the controller is going to kick ass, since the scheme is going to utilize the numchuck.... finally .
PS3 version for me unless they screw up the controls. Then its 360.
I love my boy Sonic, old school Sonic head until I die! But has anyone noticed that Sonic has a new way of running in every game? Awesomeness, can't wait to play a demo or something.
It looks amazing! I hope they can pull it off. I miss the old Sega Genesis days especially.
Juuuken u see da power of da xbox 360 impressive isnt it, almost cg like graphics looks alot better than Rachet and clank lets now wait and see if da ps3 version is on par or downgraded
...-___- Seriously, get over yourself.
i think you need to get over yourself and you need to know yourself aswell
I think you should do the same. Don't come in here with that bull about 'teh 360 ish superiooooooorz!111'. Seriously, don't.
