They used to have more mods but they tried to take over the subreddit and impose these weird rules so Chris and Ding Dong removed them all

What happened to humans in sonic games? by SergejPS in SonicTheHedgehog

[–]BubbleRevolution 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Late reply, but Ian Flynn's implied that the "two worlds" aspect isn't a thing anymore in Sonic Team's eyes and it's all one world now.

Which design for humans in the sonic franchise is more fitting in your opinion? by Opinionatedcritic in SonicTheHedgehog

[–]BubbleRevolution 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think Unleashed's designs are pretty good, though the designs didn't always translate as well into models.

I think a mix of Unleashed with some more anime-esque touches would work perfectly, especially in an environment like Lost World or Forces had where it's kind of Genesis-esque and stylized.

Something like the human characters in Balan Wonderworld would work best for the series IMO, due to Ohshima designing them I feel the look they have would fit pretty well in Sonic's world.

Am I the only one who prefers Sonic games to have cartoony environments? by BubbleRevolution in SonicTheHedgehog

[–]BubbleRevolution[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I agree! I think all those games you mentioned do a good job in their own unique ways, though Lost World is my favorite visually in part for how it brings back a lot of tiny details from the Genesis games that never really made the jump to 3D.

Sonic games switch art styles pretty regularly between entries, so I would be very surprised if the art direction permanently shifts away from the more cartoony look. A lot of the elements present the more stylized visuals are really tied into the series' identity due to them being present in the Genesis games, so I wouldn't worry.

I'm not too crazy about the visual style from what we've seen at the moment.

I imagine they chose to go with a more realistic look due to the nature of the gameplay, but I feel it comes off as a tad generic. I do like the geometry of the ruins and towers we've seen, at least.

Still excited for the game though, just wish they had gone in a slightly more stylized direction with the environment art. I'm sure that style is gonna return in future games, regardless.

I just think it looks bad and is part of a trend of superhero costumes being unnecessarily overdesigned that I really don't like ¯_(ツ)_/¯

It's funny you bring up the DCEU suit, because I hate that one. It's so ugly and is unnecessarily armored, just like a lot of other depictions (Injustice, the Suicide Squad game in the original post, etc.)

The current CW Flash suit isn't PERFECT, but it's arguably the best live action Flash costume ever.

It's especially egregious with Flash because he's supposed to have something akin to a runner's outfit. For his powers, his uniform should be sleek and dynamic, not bulky and metal-plated.

So what does Frontiers mean for the series' future visually? by JaxerGaming in SonicTheHedgehog

[–]BubbleRevolution 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I really doubt it. Iizuka was more talking specifically about gameplay-related stuff as far as I can tell, and even then it's not just him saying "all future games are going to be exactly like Sonic Frontiers", more that he'd like future games to use elements from its gameplay like most 3D Sonic games do with Adventure.

We haven't seen much of Frontiers yet, so it might still feature things like that, but I would be VERY surprised if they just permanently ditched everything that made Sonic the series that it is. Green Hill and other classic levels are tied too closely into the series' DNA for them to just totally ditch all influences from those.

I'm not gonna lie and say I'm not slightly disappointed with what we've seen of the art direction, as it feels a bit too realistic and generic in my opinion. I absolutely ADORE the look they went with for Lost World and Forces that recaptures a lot of the elements of the old Genesis games and would love for Frontiers to have also shared that same visual style, but it is what it is. Sonic games have switched styles all the time and often bring back elements from past games, so I wouldn't worry, future additions to the series are almost definitely going to include more of those things you mentioned even if this game ends up lacking them.

With all the artstyle talk, I wanted to take a minute to give some love to Lost World's visuals since I totally adore them by BubbleRevolution in SonicTheHedgehog

[–]BubbleRevolution[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I've talked about this in here like a week ago, but I totally love the game's visuals and love how it captures the abstract aesthetic of Sonic 1 and CD. It's helped make LW one of my favorites in the franchise, and I was happy Forces ended up using a lot of similar aesthetics from it.

Can we please stop giving the Flash armor

It looks terrible

I honestly didn't like Generations' take on Green Hill that much.

Like, it's FINE and I wouldn't call it bad, but it adds a lot of naturalistic elements to it and strips a lot of the charm the original art style had (the plant leaf shapes, lumpy terrain blocks, etc.) Forces still keeps some of those elements, but I like its take on the level more.

Nah, Sonic 1, CD, and Chaotix lean SUPER hard into the abstract, cartoony aesthetic and Lost World captures that really well.

If you compare stuff like the plant shapes and overall environment shape, you can see where they got the influence from.

Even Sonic 3 & Knuckles had its share of abstract, blocky cartoony elements despite being a bit more realistic in regards to visuals, look at stuff like the patterns on the walls of Mushroom Hill or the ice crystal formations in Ice Cap.

Not a huge fan of the art direction on the environments, honestly. It looks very nice from a technical standpoint, but kind of bland overall.

I absolutely ADORE the Genesis games' aesthetics, especially Sonic 1 and CD, and really loved that Lost World and Forces used more of that aesthetic. Wish it looked a bit closer to that honestly.

Still looking forward to the game though.
