back in his Sonic Drift days Sonic hated cars, he’s warmed up to them
considerably. The cars in Sonic Drift were more like go-karts, which
meant they were slow and boring to Sonic. When All-Stars Racing came
around with actual sports cars and more dynamic and dangerous tracks,
Sonic had a lot more fun. It was when Transformed rolled around and
Sonic found himself in a car that was not only faster still but could
transform into a plane (a vehicle he actually likes to drive) and even
allow him to safely travel through water (something he always dreads), he
actually found it quite difficult to set his feet back on the ground.
While playing Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed:
Denise: How did we end up with “Doctor Eggman” from Robotnik, anyway? Me: I don’t know. Maybe it’s not his name. Maybe Sonic calls him that. Denise: Omg maybe all the names are nicknames given by Sonic!
I was playing Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed and on the Roulette Road stage there are some face cards with Sonic characters on them, and as it turns out Tails was the Joker and there’s no way I’d go without drawing that
Rather than putting every character onto a mini-map, Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing simplified this information down into a single line, indicating each character in relation to themselves. This makes it easier to parse directly relevant information, and spend less time trying to find yourself on a larger, more complex mini-map.
