Easy Allies |OT2| Love & Reset

I'll defend Sonic's friends till I die. They have more variety than Mario's. We aren't getting 4 Sonics and 4 Amys in this one!

But then again Sega's roster of characters is topped by only Nintendo's and Capcom's? So I understand those who would miss the All Stars cast.

I can get past the issue of this game being all Sonic characters, the main problem for me is that it just seems mechanically less interesting than Racing Transformed. I thought having different modes of transport in the same race was really cool and I loved how some tracks would change per lap so you could be racing around on a normal road to start with, but by lap 3 the road has broken away so you're going a different route in a river underneath it.

The mechanical addition to this game (being in a team) just seems like something that would annoy me and I haven't yet come across any reason that tells me why it's a good addition. Having AI you potentially have to babysit is the last thing I want in a racing game, and if there is ever a situation where you could come in first but end up losing due to the position of your team mates then I would never want to play this game.

I LOVED Transformed and this new game just looks like a complete downgrade, where's the Diddy Kong Racing vehicle switching and all the stages that celebrate Sega's amazing history?

What the fuck is this "sequel", I can't.

Also we'd easily get Kiryu/Majima in it now so the fact that it's only about Sonic now is even worse.
Yup. I was a huge fan of Transformed, and one of my favorite things about it was that it was a celebration of all things Sega. Plus the vehicle gimmick was really great.

Sonic Team Racing is 100% a skip for me. Not interested. Everything about it seems like a collection unnecessary self-inflicted wounds.

It will be interesting to see how successful it is. Will jettisoning their history, and all the characters their long time fans love so much, pay off? Or will this blow up in their faces and kill the franchise?

I am super interested to see how this all plays out.

Takeshi's Challenge stream!!!

Trying to figure out who would be good for an E3 special of Mysterious Monsters: Cory Barlog, Ashley Burch and Rami Ismail?

Looking like a great week ahead according to the schedule! Jam-packed with streams.
This week's my Pop Tart

Enjoyed Friendcode, I think Bosman and Damiani together is my favorite Allies duo. Their Settle It: A Link To The Past video came up in my YT recs recently. A great 5 hours, Damiani has these Zelda games down.

I would watch a series where he plays them all accompanied by other Allies for sure.

Agreed. It was a shame that Ash Paulsen couldn't make it but as soon as the podcast opened with Damiani and Bosman then I knew that we were in for a good time.

I don’t post here at all, and I love EZA, but why does Kyle constantly just need to mess with segments? Glinny’s Cauldron is hilarious and I love the segment, but it seems like he can’t just let it be good. He constantly has to tinker. The whole “well you know that thing we all agreed on? It’s gone now.” WHY. So now instead at the end of it being a face-off, it’s this weird lopsided contest. If he’s doing it because “well we chose the worst of the worst so obviously ours would be a worse game”, I think the jumbled mess of the other “worst game” could be much more of a mess.

Just a rant because the segment is so good but every time he does this stuff it feels like he undermines the group.

He's creating a narrative, adding stakes and twists.

I think he'd love if at the end, the other "worst game" was the worse one lol

That’s what I mean, though. How hilarious would it be if the other worst game was worse because all those things they passed up when put together were absolutely vile?

It’s not a big deal, but just makes me go ergh.
 
I'm with everyone that Damiani and Kyle can carry a great Friend Code on their own, but I just got the Zelda/Monolith part and now I wish Ash was there to defend GameXplain's hypthesis. Damiani came prepared to argue with notes and pre-written statements, haha.

Well that was something, haha. Somehow that stream redeemed itself into the annals of EZA lore. Ben so focused st the end on finding the squat spots had me cracking up.
