Personally I think the new Sonic Boom game/cartoon looks cool and have no problems with the redesigns.
But if fanartists could stop drawing Sonic with a red bandana that would be cool ^-^. It’s clearly brown, and Rayman has been sporting the bright red neckerchief/hood look for almost 20 years now
….this is the best Sonic I have ever drawn.
It’s funny, Haruka and me were exactly talking about the fact Sonic’s neckerchief looked similar. *giggles*
The drawing is priceless. x)
Funny enough I also joked about this in RPC. :P
Well, RO/RL was a critical success, so you gotta learn from the victors, aye? :’)
Quote from friend playing Rayman Fiesta Run:
"How did Ubisoft make a better Sonic game than Sonic Team?"
I’ll be honest here as a Sonic fruit and nut case: Rayman Origins and Legends were to me pretty much exactly what I’ve always wanted from a Sonic game.
Especially the levels of the Mystical Pique and Land of the Livid Dead. All that running up and around sloped walls, aerobatics and tricky but well designed obstacles that led to great speed runny layouts, as well as to an extent the animation and art style.
If Sega ever decided to team up with Ubisoft or use the Ubi Art engine to make a 2D Sonic that is like Rayman Origins/Legends but with the rolling physics of the Mega Drive games and the art style of Sonic CD’s animated segments…I would be in heaven.
For now though we’re getting this sort of Rachet and Clank style 3D team-play thing, which to be honest really isn’t my bag. Nothing about the game trailer released recently felt like Sonic to me, just kinda looks like most other 3D platformers by Sony with Sonic characters in it.
But that’s fine. It’s not for me but I know a lot of people are gonna probably love it and it’s good to see Sega trying something different. I’m pretty indifferent about the character designs as they kind of get away from the iconic, almost Mickey Mouse/Felix the Cat quality that Sonic’s silhouette has, but this is just a spin off so not a big deal. They could be a LOT worse (yes, even Knuckles).
But yeah recent Rayman 2D games have made me a Rayman fan. I liked Rayman 2 before that but otherwise I didn’t love the series, until now. :)
