As far as I know, this game is called "SONIC AND SEGA ALL STARS", not "SONIC, SEGA & ALMOSTSEMINONSEGATALL ALLSTARS"... Well, I respect that but still don't find a reason...


When the petitions were set up, there was a rule against non-Sega characters but also some confusion around the licensing of Miku, so she was allowed to stay after it was later discovered that Sega don't own the rights.

That said, the actual title of this game is Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed - not specifically Sega All-Stars. And there are already characters in the game who aren't the property of Sega: Danica Patrick and Wreck-It Ralph.

So basically it was a series if ambiguities and gray areas that allowed the likes of Miku to proceed as a contestant. If she hadn't had the kind of support she did, then perhaps the organizers would have been firmer, but apparently an angry mob of anime schoolgirl fans is something to be feared.


Ok ok. Now everything is more clear. Thanks!

In a few cases, I essentially did it on their behalf in front of them coz of how shit they are with computers. And when it comes to certain people on the internet, they prefer utilising user names as opposed to real names. People can share post codes, IP addresses, plenty of shit. So, basically, there's gonna be no concrete way of differentiating these cases from "multiple votes".


Hmm I don't think the username gives any problem if you mean this. They wont check you ID card so in my opinion the most decisive is checking an IP list witch I actually doubt it's possible. That's private data. I supose double mail was not allowed in the petition as the begining.

They should throw us a curve ball and have Lan Di as DLC. A Black Car for driving, helicopter for flying, and.. a boat (to Hong Kong) for the water segments?

Retarded "logic" at work.

Yes. He uses a private boat to get to Hong Kong. Like a boss.

And Ryo? Maybe some kind of water motorcycle similar to the boat he takes at the end of Shenmue I? LOL!

Sumo answered me this one, on twitter:

'Steve Lycett ‏@S0LSUM0
@ThyDarkAngel we couldn't get Lan Di in. Not after what happens in Shenmue 3. You know where.... Oh.'

Hehe.

I saw that. :lol:

S0L posted this on the Sega forum today as well, echoing comments he's made in the past:

If I was Yu Suzuki, I'd create a Kickstarter to obtain the rights from SEGA and fund Shenmue III...

You just beat me too it while I was typing, FourCartridge. :D

1% of Miku's votes were fake, 1.5% of Ryo's votes were fake. But Ryo still had more legit votes. 8)

Not sure how many of you have seen the discussion on Sega's forum about Shenmue III following Ryo's win, but have a read here.

I'm actually more surprised ToeJam & Earl still made it, or that Vectorman beat Bayonetta, dispute her having a sequel coming up and Vectorman not being seen in over 15 years.

It was a wild ride, all things considered.

To be fair though, there was similar backlash against Miku. Almost everyone in the top 3 got loads of flak, except Segata and that was only cause a YT personality plugged him in. Someone there is even blabbing about console exclusives and Calling SUMO the worst devs ever when he was just fine with Banjo last game.

Still, enjoy your victory, Shenmue fans, you earned it. =)

I really don't get why people are giving sumo and sol shit when they are going out of their way to make fanservices and actually take time to communicate directly with the fanbase :roll:
