It'd be fun if a Sonic RPG focused on a momentum based battle system: allowing the player to build up ability over time to unleash it all at once, or act more often but for less effect.

I think the Bravely series does something like that, though I'm not into that series so I'm not sure.

Xenosaga also does that, where you can sacrifice your turns to build up power points that let you use stronger attacks later. Trails games also have a very in-character thing for Sonic to do, where your limit break can be used real time to skip ahead of the turn order and steal an enemy's turn.

The Sonic movie is starting to sound pretty good.

I'm actually, genuinely excited to see it now.

It seems like the same leak/test screening from the person who liked it (note said person wasn't really into Sonic).

Cross-post from the Sonic movie thread (it's not spoiler-heavy, but...)

Positives:

  • They consider the movie a solid 7/10 and describe it as "2014's TMNT but good".
  • The movie has good character development on Tom, Sonic and Robotnik.
  • Unlike similar Live Action CGI hybrids (TMNT, Smurfs and Alvin and the chipmunks), the focus remains on Sonic, the main character.
  • Sonic is really cute in the movie, he starts off very shy and awkward but as the movie progresses he learns and develops into his loveable cocky self.
  • There is a great action scene that pays homage to SA 2.
  • When Sonic and Robotnik comes face-to-face for the first time in their lives, the movie takes a second to breathe. It's a really well-done and epic scene that actually gives chills.
  • Ben Schwartz nails his performance as Sonic.
  • It's overall lots of fun.

Negatives:

  • The pacing is kinda clunky at the beginning (mostly the events that lead to Sonic being sent to earth), however, it improves significantly throughout the movie.
  • Some of the serious moments get interrupted by jokes (this is only sometimes)
  • The worldbuilding was alright, but it needed more.
  • Some gags are a little forced.
  • Could have used more action scenes.

Trivia:

  • Sonic does NOT have sex and is not sexualized in any way
  • Robotnik does become a threatening villain, but it takes time.
  • The name "Eggman" is never used.

It wouldn't exactly be fitting since he looks not like an Egg Man.

Yeah, kind of a shame that only characters that were around back then and thus already had sprites seem to be invited to join in those events.

Thinking they should have used the Super Mario World/All Stars sprites instead of the NES ones.

Live And Learn (Recut) is the best high-quality rip from SA 2's lost soundtrack, and clearly shows Shadow's fondness for animation imports from Japan :V

On a serious note, youtube music channels like BrawlBRSTMS3 X have been killed by copyright claims from Nintendo. While not a Nintendo property, that's where I always listened to Sonic music. It looks like Gi1vaSunner is going to be next.

Nintendo's YT policies can go fuck off. I've already seen a pretty big ripple in the Youtube game soundtrack uploads.
