    It's literally one guy's ego spoiling the whole thing for the rest of us. Maybe TSR can explain further, but it sounds like this guy is so full of himself that he didn't anyone to potentially steal his thunder.

    Between Black Mesa, CryZone, and now Sonic 2 HD, it's pretty clear that getting excited for a massive fan project is really just a waste of time.

    From now on, as far as I'm concerned, fan projects don't exist until they're playable.

    It's a STALKER mod made in CryEngine2. Something I'm rather indifferent to.

    Naw, it's more than that now. Sometime during that year long lull where they had finished the art assets for EHZ and waiting for lOst to deliver his engine, a couple of key members of the staff had to quit to tend to real careers. The project has been pretty much dead for a while now. lOst leaving, and the bad publicity, just made them formally announce it.

    Man, that project was just one huge clusterfuck. It seems like it was a miracle that anything came out of that at all.

    Sonic and Sega All-stars Racing Transform announced. Looks awesome. Gillus Thunderhead on a beast is confirmed, as is Vyse in his sky machine. There is also a panzer dragoon course. Vectorman is in, too.

    Given how good the original SASASR was, I have high expectations for this. I just hope Big the Cat is still in; the fun I derived from making online opponents go from saying "Pffft, he's using Big! Hahaha!" to "...WE GOT BEATEN BY BIG?!"

    Ah, good times.

    A gameplay video with a remix of Panzer Dragoon's Flight as the song.

    Ristar is in this, too.

    Digital sumo picked up a lot of staff that worked on Blur for this game. It's more like Diddy Kong Racing than Mario Kart now, because your car can transform into a flying machine or a boat.

    Probably a good thing I liked Blur too, then. Did seem strange that they never released a sequel.

    No, I mean like DKR, because, unlike MK7, all the vehicles felt different in DKR. In Mario Kart, no matter what kind of vehicle you had, they felt the same. This is going to be more like DKR.

    Unfortunately it's because Blur sold horribly.

    blur was cool but they made the mistake of having that open beta, which supplied me and my friends just enough fun that we never had to actually buy the game... seriously that beta was out for weeks

    Vectorman has to be his own car / boat / plane. Seriously. Bonus points if he transforms into his normal robot form at slow speeds, or when making really tight turns. I'm also hoping there are occasional poles by the side of/over the road for Ristar to grab.

    Was there any meaningful Z-axis in DKR when flying? All the planes look like they're on the same plane in midair in the trailer.

    I see BD Joe and Beat in that trailer. Alongside Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy and Eggman, that's 7 returning characters plus 4 new characters confirmed so far.

    it's so when people search online for 'sonic games', that comes up

    Hmm. I'm not really sure about this boat and plane thing. I don't like the idea of transforming every 30 seconds and completely changing the gameplay mechanics. It would be awesome if it were more like DKR where you picked one type (some of which may not be available depending on the course) and used it the whole race.

    Mario Kart 7 isn't really a good comparison here because it barely actually changes the gameplay in that. For the underwater segments, it's the same except floatier, and the gliding segments (in which you can't actually fly) generally just have you gliding in a straight line down to the road. Transformed looks like DKR with MK7's "forced switch mid-race" mechanic thrown in.

    It may be more that modern gamers who didn't grow up with Sega consoles don't really know anyone except Sonic.

    mario kart has had a decent amount of non-mario characters in them (diddy kong, R.O.B., donkey kong JR), and mario kart works fine as a name

    it's sonic kart to me, no matter what silly name sega comes up with
    hell, even crash bandicoot managed to pay homage in name

    ExciteBots pulled off the same gimmick pretty well, though it seems that hardly anybody played it around here.

    CTR was, as far as I'm concerned, so much better than Mario Kart 64.

    SASASR was also significantly better than I had expected of it, and I played the PC version. I will keep my eye on this.

    Eurogamer's preview for Sonic All-stars says that it has an adventure mode directly inspired by Mario Galaxy. There is also XP you earn when you race, which can buy stickers, which grant you abilities, sorta like in Smash Bros. Put stickers on your kart, and you can do new things. Apparently the tracks are a lot bigger than they seem, with lots of branching paths, which only open up when you have the right abilities.

    Also, the budget for this game is supposedly "massive" and the underlying tech is brand new - Sega is creating the engine with next-gen consoles in mind. Think of it sorta like Crysis, where this is going to be a much scaled back version of the engine, with lots of things turned off. The idea is that, when next-gen comes, Sega will already have a mature engine out there that they can license and use at will.

    This is going to fucking rule.

    I guess they confirmed that the PC version will have online play this time. Probably Steamworks.

    hooray

    but I guess it won't really be playable with a steering wheel this time, which is the main reason I like to buy racing games on the PC. Oh well. At least it'll be cheaper and run at 60fps.
