GN podcast wants you

EoD - Majora's Mask

EoD - Edgy Nintendo
 

We all saw Sonic Boom in March of last year, but we didn't realize it

Wow, this is pretty amazing. Check out this CryEngine 3 demo that came from GDC 2013. I think you'll find the beginning particularly interesting.


Well I'll be damned...we had a new Sonic game staring us in the face and we had no idea!

Link, Link

Update - Turns out the teasing goes even further back (thanks PSI_Wind!)

Those giant rings on the door should have been a giveaway. Surprising that no one figured it out.

I can't believe that me as a guy who enjoys Mario, and Sonic since the whole you can only like one or the other, but liked both did not spot that sooner either. Because i saw this back at GDC online as well. How unusual of me for sure.

We've been told pretty much all these 'scaleable' engines don't run on Wii U. My ass they don't.

Exactly. Then there are some huge golden rings above a rooftop. It's just full of rings. HOW DID WE NOT KNOW.

Interesting. Yeah thought CryEngine didn't work on Wii U...

The new character designs somehow distracted me from noticing how absolutely gorgeous this game looks.

This is about as good as games can look on a normal 2D HDTV screen. It actually looks like a good animated movie. Particle effects/showers don't add anything for me, so I'm fine with all future games looking like that. Until good VR/3D games show up, of course.

Exactly. It's just lies from certain entities that say their engines can't run on WiiU. Like EA with Frostbite 3.

I don't believe it was said that CryEngine 3 doesn't work on Wii U. I think it was only said that Crytek themselves weren't planning on releasing a title for the system.
