Sonic Unleashed's Werehog Will Return

image

The universally hated Werehog from Sonic Unleashed will live to see another day and cause more weeping and gnashing of teeth among what fans of Sega's mascot remain.

Here's my advice to the old-school Sonic fans who continually cry foul when Sega inevitably besmirches their beloved franchise time and time again, despite all glimmers of hope: It's time to move on. The time has passed when Sega made Sonic games for you, they've moved on and it's time for you to do the same. Don't believe me? Sega themselves have admitted to it. Old fans aren't the core audience of the series.

"You have the animated Sonic series that is intended for younger kids, and I personally like to look at those kids as our most important audience," Sonic director Tetsu Katano said in an interview. "That said, we're trying to make games which appeal to all generations."

Some members of the older of those generations didn't find much appeal in the Werehog sections of the recent Sonic Unleashed, during which Sonic transforms into feral creature with Stretch Armstrong powers who likes to smash stuff. Katano will readily accept that people don't like the Werehog, but isn't quite ready to give them what they want.

"In principle, I think that the users are always right. They're the ones paying the money and playing the games," he said. So if the users are always right, why not ditch the damn Werehog? "I don't think that producing the Werehog was a mistake per se, but there were a lot of things we could have done better if we had more time and resources."

Seems Katano sees untapped potential in the Werehog, so much that he guarantees that we'll see the thing again. "If I think of any ideas [for improving the Werehog] then Sonic Unleashed 2 will be the time for that," he explained. "But you will see the Werehog again."

Hopefully by "improvements" he doesn't mean the ditched "yeti Werehog" concepts from the first Sonic Unleashed.

Does anyone know how to tie a nuse?

Noose. And yes.

...Fuck.

Its amazing how far stupid ideas will go.

...God I'm gonna miss sonic.

Why can't bad things die? As few good design ideas that were in Unleashed, the Werehog was not one of them.

Does anyone get this weird feeling like developers don't have internet access??

KKAAAAHHHNNNN!!!

I'm done with Sonic.

And this time, I mean it.

Really.

Seriously.

*inhaling sound* NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO *exhaling sound, inhaling sound* OOOOOOOOOOOO!

Dammit! Why, Sega? Why?

Sonic?
SONIC?
SONIIIIICC!

See, he acknowledged that people hate it, but they just don't care.

Sonic is not alive anymore. Sega is dancing his rotted corpse on strings like a marionette

He pretty much just said he was making it for the tweens who gaggle over the anthrophomorpic cartoon. CHILI DOGS YO!

No. Just no. Its time to string Sonic up by his neck.

Why does this not surprise me? I refer to Max and to the OP. Sonic is a dead horse that is actually so dead that he's being used as the new final boss in the next House of the Dead game, forgoing the Tarot theme, because the dead horse is much scarier. The fear of Sonic's present incarnation is what you get when you multiply F.E.A.R. with Silent Hill, add a hefty dose of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and take this value to the power of the number of nines in that "Interesting Fact" thread from last month. Which means a hell of a lot.

Why, Sonic Team, Why?

AoE dies after producing an RTS gem, and Sonic lives on after producing pure, concentrated evil. It's the way of the world I'm afraid.

Wow. That's like:

"No one likes playing as Raiden? Well in the sequel we're going to make everyone play as him again instead of Snake! But this time we'll give them more guns so they'll learn to like it."

No.

We just need a way to flip the world upside down. The world is a flat surface, isn't it? ISN'T IT? I dare you to challenge my logic that the world is flat!

Watch the very last scene. Do it. Its priceless.

oh god no...

mydogisblue:
...Fuck.

here here!!!

Nintendo: "We hear you, we aqree. But fuck you. Those of you that made us what we are today are no longer our target audience. Please piss off."
Sonic Team: "Yeah, what he said!"

I seriously hope that this economic crisis reaches the owners of Sonic Team, and they have to feed their families by turning tricks behind their local Wal-Mart.

Yahtzee is right. It's time to take Sonic behind the dumpster and lovingly give him both barrels. Really, just when you'd think Sega had learned its lesson...

FFFFFFFFFFFFFF
UUUUUUUUUUUUUU
CCCCCCCCCCCCCC
KKKKKKKKKKKKKK
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My GOD SEGA! What the fuck is up with this bullshit?

I'm not usually this crazed up on developers, but Jesus Fucking Humphrey Christ!

Listen to the god damned reviews, nobody liked the god damn Werehog!

Keane Ng:
"I don't think that producing the Werehog was a mistake per se, but there were a lot of things we could have done better if we had more time and resources."

No no no no no NO!!! There was nothing you guys could have done to even make the Werehog even moderately enjoyable! (okay, hyperbole, but they really sucked) Pretty much nobody liked them! Nobody cared about them, nobody wanted them! Why do you insist on continuing something that nobody wants?

Stop trying to reinventing the god damn sub-sonic-wheel, stop with your stupid "innovations"/"gimmicks", stop with your new "ideas" and "It seemed like a good idea at the time" crap, stop with making Sonic something he's not, stop with not listening to the actual reviews, stop and think for a second about what sonic was, stop and for Christ's sake just make Sonic run fast!

The public have made it clear! We don't care about Sonic any more, the reviewers have spoken, the fans have spoken, the people who bought the damn game have spoken.

Listen to your fucking customers SEGA!

Jeez, I'm sorry, I'm just getting furious at SEGA right now, or specifically Sonic Team if you want to get technical. Just stop it. Stop it and let the hedgehog die...

Sega now seem to work on balance. Year in year out they give us wonderful things that seem to have very minimal crap - Condemned, Valkyria Chronicles, House of the Dead Overkill, Lost on the Island of Spice, the Yakuza series, Madworld, The Conduit, Stormrise, Bayonetta (for what its trying to do it looks awesome - like that machine gun stripper in Planet Terror, both incredibly retarded and amazingly awesome). All of this filtered out crap needs to go somewehre, so it must all go into the Sonic games. If Sega stopped making crap Sonic games, they couldn't do such incredibly awesome other games.

LivingInStereo:
Does anyone get this weird feeling like developers don't have internet access??

Sometimes, yeah, I do. At least the Console part of Sonic Team doesn't. The Handheld part does, which is why the handheld games haven't started to fully suck yet.

They only have like 50 more chances to get this shit right before I stop caring.

You live in a very strange fantasy world don't you?

This must be the point where a game character dies. When the company abandons their older audience; people that only want a good, fun game featuring this character; in favor of a younger, more easily entertained audience.

At least now we know we know the truth.

Fuck sake.

Stop this shit and make a knuckles game, so I can stop plotting your deaths Sonic Team! The fuck is wrong with you?

I need to be playing a game with Chaos Knuckles in it before I die, hop to it.

That's because they can't mess up a handheld sonic game.

...can they?

Name me one not awesome part in Valkyria Chronicles. Or maybe you disliked the part in Lost on the Island of SPice when you were killing mutant frogs with paddles...in a rail shooter.
Or maybe this just isn't to your taste

Sonic, what's wrong? Stop playing games, you have to answer me!

SOnic? Soonic?
SOOONNNIIC!

(sidenote: I thought that developers grew out of this "disregarding the consumer plebs" when the internet hit... oh well)

I think he was more confused by your logic. Sure you're making a joke, but I don't think that the crap actually needs to be made into anything.

Bad Sonic Games =/= Good SEGA Games.

No, there was a time when there were both great Sega games and great Sonic games, but sadly, those days seem long gone. But my point is even if Sonic has now become an annual dissapointment, Sega are still making awesome games.

Stupid is as stupid does, and apparently stupid does Sonic games these days.

I was actually referring to your statement about Sonic being the toilet franchise. Wherein if Sonic didn't suck everything else would.
