    I realised this straight after I posted it...
     
    In any case it's still strange that she appears here at all.

    Why is nobody talking about this!?
    This is the first character they've added to the character profiles since Werehog, Chip and Marine in 2008. I guess Sticks is here to stay guys, wonder if she'll start appearing in SEGA Sonic media from now on?

    Are you actually kidding me Omega goes live tomorrow?

    Fucks sake, I'm still trying to get Classic Sonic, I don't want to accidentally end up with a character I'm not particularly bothered about when the one I do want is under a quickly depleting time limit.

    Ah fuck where I downloaded this game using a Canadian fake Apple ID I now can't buy any Red Star Rings ;( I bet there's no way around this either... No hope for me getting Classic Sonic then.

    Theres a character egg for me as well, Classic Sonic released early or do character eggs just appear very rarely?

    Got my Amy after my 5th spin, saving those Red Rings turned out to be a good idea.

    Just got Carbuncle, not really sure what the 'certain items' he picks up are yet but I haven't tried him out yet. Puyo Special Stage is cool and a nice distraction from the tiresome main story. I hope they do events for this for classic SEGA franchises.

    Oh really? I was bombarded with adverts for it this morning after logging on, I could have sworn one said it started today. My bad!

    Ok so the event has started today apparently.


    How do I get my free fish that I signed up for

    I've just been storing my red star rings for a character event lately, I have about 250 so far and haven't really bothered to spend many on the Premium roulette. Is this the right thing to do or should I be spending the 50 every time I get them?

    How do you pre register for this event? The website takes me to a Japanese page that I think is asking for my email address but I'm not really sure lol

    Best beach level.

    Sonic Shuffle had some really cool level tropes actually, I would have liked to have seen some main game levels with mixed tropes like ice/beach and sky/fire.

    ^ I was really hoping you'd reply

    I think I feel the same way as you, poured my heart into every aspect of this franchise, turning to non-game media to get my kicks over the years but nothing does it anymore. I'm just not satisfied like you said. I think I've maybe developed this idea of what Sonic should be like in my head and nothing fulfils that anymore, I'm just left with fanwanking and what could have been :/ ...

    I can't be bothered to care about Sonic anymore.
    I just can't.

    Sonic 1 was the first game I ever played. I was 2 at the time, I fell in love from the moment I played it and never looked back. Sonic 2 was the first game I owned, the first game I ever completed. When I was a young child I used to wake up hours before school just so I could play Sonic 3 with my brother. I was so into Sonic. I used to eat, sleep and breathe this franchise. I got Sonic Adventure for Christmas 1999, I remember being devastated because this was the game I dreamed of owning and had no means to play it. The big final 'for the family' present that year was a Dreamcast, probably one of the happiest moments of my life. Didn't have a VMU, I didn't even care, I'd just replay it day after day for a year until we got one. Best times <3

    I joined SSMB when I was 14, that's nearly 9 years ago, even at that age I knew Shadow the Hedgehog was digging a hole the franchise couldn't escape from but my inner fanboy was willing to ride that out. Sonic Rush completely counteracted whatever damage this game did, absolutely height of my forum life. Got banned from here like 3 times due to naivety, didn't even care, online Sonic discussion was like drugs to me back then haha!

    06 happened. I don't think I've ever been more excited about a game than I was that, despite all the obvious issues from the get go the amount of hype surrounding that game was truly something to behold. I bought a 360 purely for that game, this was THE Sonic game, this was the game that would put Sonic back on the map. It didn't.

    Unleashed, I was a bit older at that point, Werehog made me sigh, I wasn't all that into the Daytime gameplay either, my love for Sonic kinda dwindled at this point. I was still big on illustration at this time though so DeviantArt kinda kept me going, in my eyes Sonic was still this unstoppable force, I truly believed that it was a massive behemoth of a franchise that was loved by millions. Oh how wrong I was.

    Generations, oh my sweet Jesus, my 20 year old self could not handle this game. What an absolute rush I'd get from even thinking about this game. Pokemon remakes give you a nostalgia trip but this was something else, this was Sonic, the franchise I'd grown up with tailored to the fans who had been there from day 1. This was a game made for me (maybe not gameplay wise but everything else).

    And it delivered. But where did we go from there? I'd still get a kick from even the monthly Sonic Channel artwork upload and when Lost World was announced I truly did believe Sonic was back for good. My little childhood hero had found his feet and things would be good from here on out.

    Nope.

    Game is released. Within an hour I'm bored. To this day I haven't even finished it, a culmination of a cringe inducing script and awkward gameplay I can't get behind. Then BAM, Sonic Boom. I get that it's not 'main Sonic' but my god I can't even give the slightest shit about this, I've never ever felt like I've outgrown Sonic as much as I have now. My eleven year old brother doesn't even care about Sonic anymore and I made a point out of playing every Sonic game together while he was growing up.

    After joining NeoGAF and seeing just few people even care about Sonic anymore it's just kind of changed my whole opinion on things, this truly is a washed up mascot we're dealing with now. I've poured my heart and soul into this franchise only to be disappointed year after year and I really don't think I care anymore. It's been nearly a decade since I joined this forum and nothing has changed, we're still in this weird limbo where we annually assess whether this latest release will be a Sonic game worth caring about. Maybe I've just outgrown all this bullshit now?

    Am I alone with this?

    I enjoy reading conversations about games more than I do playing them.
    Feat. Long ass thread title.

    Hi, SSMB, it's been a while, how y'all doing?

    Fuck though, what an awkward realisation this is. After discovering GAF about 6 months ago I've noticed that I spend all day every day reading countless threads on people talking about games I have no interest in or buying or even playing. It was the same thing here back when I was an active member. Other than the next Mario, Pokemon or Zelda I probably won't even consider buying any of the games we all spend hours talking about and dissecting unless they really draw me in somehow (dat Mirror's Edge) but I just love reading the conversations we all have about them.

    My little brother is going through the same phase I did when I was 11 and buying every game he has even the slightest interest in, back then I would get so into every impulse buy and some of them became my favourite games of all time but nowadays I just have no interest in blowing a load of money on something I might not even be that bothered about.

    Is that weird? Surely I'm not the only one who does this?

    Old, but intriguing.

    'Buy this game and we might make the next game something you want' ~ SEGA




    Probably has something to do with SEGA loosening the reigns on western developers with Sonic based on Boom's success.

    Probably also discussed in a Boom topic somewhere I didn't look sorry
