Going Back To Sonic's Roots

Going Back To Sonic's Roots

Last night's announcement of Sonic Mania was well-received by fans of the classic Sonic titles. However, this isn't the first time that Sega has promised to return Sonic to his roots. Sonic the Hedgehog 4 was the biggest attempt to bring the speedy hedgehog back to his 2D glory, but it ultimately failed to recapture that magic thanks to some strange level design and physics that never felt quite right. It's because of this and other titles that haven't been well-received that many have curtailed their enthusiasm for Sonic Mania until they can play the game themselves. Thankfully, I had that opportunity and can report that Sonic Mania plays just like the classic Sonic games it models itself after.

The pixel graphics look like a combination of the visuals from Sonic 1, Sonic 2, Sonic 3, and Sonic CD. Even some of the animations mimic those of Sonic CD; as Sonic bounces upward off a spring, he spins like he did in CD. Sonic's running animation when he moves his fastest reminds me of the figure-8 run from CD as well, but without his legs forming the "8." 

Creators Matt Stone And Trey Parker Reveal Original Title, Discuss Gameplay

about X hours ago from

At San Diego Comic-Con, a new making of video was revealed for Ubisoft's South Park: The Fractured But Whole, where creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker discuss the ups and downs of its development. They also bring up that the title we know today wasn't necessarily their first choice.

The upcoming tactical RPG, which is filled with a mix of both outrageous scenarios and hilarity, sees Cartman and his friends lampoon the world of superheroes and parody Marvel's Civil War. It takes place right after the events of The Stick of Truth, where the kids form their own superhero team called Coon and Friends.

The making of video has Stone and Parker, along with Ubisoft developers, discuss their experiences creating the game. Many explain that refining the combat was one of the tougher tasks. "You want it to be complex enough to be fun and challenging and have strategies, but you also want it to be simple enough that it looks like South Park and it is still just fun," says Parker. While the turn-based formula will return, a more tactical approach was taken, where you'll have to think a few moves ahead.

Details Emerge Including New Characters, Story, And Setting

Several new details for Halo Wars 2 were revealed yesterday at San Diego Comic-Con. The panel featured Kiki Wolfkill, franchise director Frank O'Connor, studio head Dan Ayoub, and narrative director Kevin Grace, along with Blur Studios' creative director Dave Wilson and actress Erika Soto.

The group discussed what's in store for the next sequel, including new characters and how it will follow the ending of the original game. In Halo Wars 2, the Spirit of Fire and its crew awake from cryogenic sleep 28 years later. After drifting in space for so many years, they find themselves above a Forerunner installation and UNSC research facility known as the Ark. Here, they discover a distress signal, which leads them to meet the new AI character Isabelle (played by Erika Soto).

In 343 Industries' new development video, Ayoub describes her as "a very different kind of AI" in comparison to past AI from the Halo series, such as Cortana and Serina.
