    First Gameplay hack(s) of the demo.

    That just showed me why everyone needs to stop bitching about homing attacks...imagine trying to bounce on enemies...it would be the most infuriating thing to do ever. Especially if the enemies are made with the level design. You can't do Classic Sonic fast in the level and integrate outside forces without being sent to oblivion or it being a cumbersome task that few can enjoy...that's why Sonic was streamlined so that the player had some sense of control WITH a sense of speed. This only proves it further. Of course you can dumb down things and slow sonic down too Mario levels...but it would be a Sonic game now would it? Apart from that though that was indeed fucking awesome...gonna get the hacks for kicks!

    So is it fair to say that the franchise is out of its rut?

    It's certainly not as bad as it was, but it's still far below what it was before that. Considering Sonic's well-earned reputation (both of them, negative and positive), I doubt he's going to shake it off until they do something that's really, truly spectacular, rather than just good. Y'know of all the terrible things the series has done, the werehog is by far the least terrible. And no matter how many alarm bells the first werehog sighting set off (and there were many, from myself included, and they were fully justified considering what we've been through), if the whole "Sonic turns into a werewolf" concept had been handled by people with half a clue what to do with it, by people who actually wanted to make it fit the series rather than doing it as a deranged fan-baiting experiment or to serve as half a game's worth of padding, there would have been absolutely no problem with it. The more hate I see piled onto the werehog, the more I come to believe the fans have been burned so much that they're terrified of this series trying anything the least bit creative. And that's sad.

    So is it fair to say that the franchise is out of its rut?

    Unleashed had Sonic crawling out of the hole slowly, Sonic 4: Episode 1 had him falling back in a few feet before quickly catching himself, Colors had him staggering out, and Generations is proving to show he's obtained his ground and is making a brisk stride out, and with utmost pride. If he keeps moving in that direction he's going right now, while expanding and improving with every turn, Sonic has a chance at being a well-loved gaming icon again. Too bad the press will never let it die.

    Arguments with idiots

    Here's a brilliant quote I found from Irish book author Clive Staples Lewis. "When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up." This is how I distinguish mature people from people who are insecure about their maturity. I can play Sonic games in front of others without even a tinge of guilt. I'm as open as I can be about my interest in Sonic. Everyone practically knows me as the Sonic guy. Does it bother me if some people think Sonic is "gay" or "childish"? Not even slightly. It just goes to show that maybe they are only playing "mature" games to compensate for something.

    Arguments with idiots

    This is not a thread about arguments among other SEGA fanboys and Sonic fans. This is a thread for those people that challenged your like for Sonic and tried to oppose it but had stupid reasons, or better yet NO reasons. I actually had one of these only like a week ago... It happened on a gaming forum when we were all talking about our excitement after E3. I mentioned Star Wars: The Old Republic, Skyrim, and gave a brief mention on Sonic Generations and how it had grabbed my attention as of lately. Someone asked me "Sonic Generations? What's that". I replied with "It's a new game from SEGA combining the modern and classic gameplay, and taking all 3 'ages' of Sonic from the entire series. The fanbase seems pretty excited for the most part". His response was "Oh, that's cool". Of course though, some retard had to challenge it "I just looked up that interview on Gamespot at E3. That game SUCKS". Of course this grabbed my interest and so I responded with "Okay, why does it suck? What's so terrible about it?". He posted back after a couple minutes with "The camera is all over the place, it's an absolute mess. Also, I know the fanbase has been arguing about the camera ever since Sonic 1" I lol'd at that and then responded "Out of ALL those comments on youtube I fail to see ONE, NOT A SINGLE ONE complaining about the camera. And as for previous games, camera has never been that big of a problem. It may have been a minor one occasionally, however I fail to see much anger towards camera issues" He responded "The classic stages camera goes absolutely nuts and all over the place, it's like it's jumping on a trampoline" Then it became clear he had no clue what he was talking about. "So tell me, if the camera just focuses on Sonic and his surroundings, then how in the world is it all over the place?" with that said he responded "It sucks. Get over it. Sonic is stupid and for little kids." With that I decided to end it with "Of corse it izz,letz go pla cal of dooty blak opps insted becuz it is awsum becuz it has shuting and nuketown!!!!11" He logged off after that. It might have just been coincidence though. Anywaaaays.....This thread is for those humorous conversations you had, with idiots who tried to mock the series or a certain game, with little to no proof, enjoy.

    In the video, I noticed that one of the options on the menu looked like you could toggle Omochao, or a "control tutorial". Will Omochao return to give you tips, rather than the hint rings? If that's the case, I can't wait 'til Crisis City. Omochao: "Be careful! That tornado's carrying a-" *Omochao gets hit by the car*

    So is it fair to say that the franchise is out of its rut?

    *reads Werehog comment* And you wonder why there's all of this overblown negativity against the Sonic franchise with comments like that? Really? Anyway, waiting for some classic-level return to form is nothing but an unrealistic fancy, partly because I believe Sonic's popularity back in the day was aided by being in the right place at the right time. I can't imagine what in the world it would take for the hardcore gaming culture not to treat the series with the out-and-out disrespect it gets on a daily basis sans a game that would make Miyamoto retire, and even then someone would make some overblown case about why the Spindash not being a 1:1 translation of the S2 version is not a valid decision but some desecration of golden classic ideals. I don't expect this attitude to go away anytime soon, if ever. Sonic is not getting his undying devotion from the public back, but I'm fine with that. What I do expect is for Sega to continue this commendable streak of improvement while proudly saying "haters gonna hate," because really, that's always going to be.

    Arguments with idiots

    Honestly, most of my fellow teenagers are so one-track-minded about their endless reams of homogeneous sports titles and mountains of war simulators, that they simply don't have the raw capacity of imagination or suspension of disbelief to even do so much as comprehend a Sonic game without stereotyping it or criticising its outward demeaner to the point or sheer prejudice. The franchise is "gay", and "for kids", they say, before returning to their virtual murder-fests that sport age ratings well above what they should legally be allowed - Sonic Heroes and Sonic X back in 2003-4 certainly didn't help the franchise to shed its "kiddie image", but the complete and utter unjustified contempt that most gamers under the age of 20 hold the Sonic series in is not something that that game and that cartoon series alone could ever have afforded. I suppose that the real kick in the balls came last year when I was browsing my local GameStation, examining the back of the GameCube version of Sonic Adventure 2: Battle in the retro section, when I heard two kids who couldn't have been more than eight or nine talking about their kills in their online bouts of Call of Duty - and was horrified when their discussion turned to size of the breasts of a woman on a piece of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas artwork. I looked back to the copy of Sonic Adventure 2 in my hand, sighed under my breath, and casually put it down and walked away - the thoughts about those two eight/nine-year-olds discussing tits while I looked at a 3+ rated platformer lingered in my mind like a bad smell in an elevator for quite a while, and it wasn't long before I deduced that there was something badly wrong with that picture...

    First Gameplay hack(s) of the demo.

    The Spindash sure would have made things easier, but then its just like boosting in the end... I just find it funny that Modern Sonic seems to be more fun playing in the Classic level than Classic Sonic himself...and in vice versa it seems...unappealing. Not ragging on genesis titles at all, but you can easily see where I'm coming from in the 3D area. I bet the team struggled a bit on whether or not it was a good idea to bring him back for this game and I bet at the end of the day they chose to just make Classic Sonic 2D because in 3D it was just not working. That might be the reason we also have this.... They were thinking about it...I'm sure of it now... This may bring some light in peoples heads...everyone needs to watch this.

    The in-game grunts are always misleading. For awhile, we thought his Colors voice was to be in the same range as Jason's until AAUK came with that cutscene and cleared up the speculation. However, if it's revealed via another cutscene later on that Roger isn't doing his Colors voice anymore, then so help me Inferno....

    So is it fair to say that the franchise is out of its rut?

    What I'm annoyed about is websites like Kotaku are still bashing on Sonic's friends and blaming them saying that Sonic's friends is one of the reasons for Sonic's downfall. Because of critics like that, a lot of Sonic friends hasn't been playable characters or had an important role in a main Sonic game since Sonic 06. The critics finally got what they wanted. They finally got their Sonic only games for 4 years now and the only time we get to play as Sonic friends are in the spin offs or multiplayer games. But I guess that's not good enough cause they still feel the need to bash on Sonic's friends every chance they get which pisses me off. That's why I'm glad that Sega is finally bringing them back in Generations as a huge middle finger since the critics can't shut up about Sonic friends so I guess they want them back in the games.

    I know people will try and eat me alive for this, but if that was the case then I'd be disappointed. I'm perfectly fine with this level list. To be honest, I'm not even sure if I'd believe that because the game is coming out in less than six months anyway. This demo build can't be that old.

    Peter Falk (Columbo) has died

    I hate that a guy from Jackass is getting more attention than one of the greatest actors of the mid-20th century. =/ This man deserves better. Those of you who've never seen an episode of Columbo are depriving yourselves of one of the most entertaining and compelling character performances ever put to celluloid. His acting alone could draw in audiences and keep them hooked to their television sets, I swear. He was a very talented performer, and he is already missed dearly.

    So is it fair to say that the franchise is out of its rut?

    To me, Sonic would be a lot better off if they stopped trying to cater to multiple audiences at a time. For fuck's sake, just pick a path, stick with it and keep improving it as you go. There really isn't any need to split the entire game in half to throw in a seperate playstyle that only superficially, if at all, resembles anything anyone would expect or even care about in a Sonic game. And even if you're just to leave it at Unleashed daytime alone, it's still so constantly in doubt as to whether it wants to be a 2D or 3D game that it decides it has to keep switching between them and not doing particularly well at either of them most of the time. If there's anything wrong with the Sonic series right now, anything at all, it's still a lack of consistency in gameplay, coupled with the fact that they just can't seem to get Sonic to work anymore without automating large parts of the game at a time. I'm certaintly okay with what we have right now, but there's definently plenty of room for improvement, and improve, they very well should.

    An Open Environment Game

    No to sandbox. Yes to open levels like Mario 64, Sunshine and Banjo-Kazooie. Where the fields are square instead of a line. You just need to tailor Sonic's controls for navigation instead of rocketing forward. The Adventure controls do that pretty well without sacrificing speed. Sonic could benefit from this if the environment was highly interactive.

    It's like we've all forgotten what variety even means. Or maybe I'm just fucking insane and my definition of variety has be skewed the majority of my 20 years of existence. I really don't know anymore looking into this topic. There is variety in these stages. Absolutely none of them are alike in their original forms when you compare them and the outcome will be the same in the final version of this game.

    Sonic generations demo 360 without buying gold membership

    Hello, i'll be quick! to play the demo for generations without having to buy a gold account, all you have to do is this; (very bloody easy) 1. create a spare email address on the computer. (or use one that's not already on xbox live) 2. go to your xbox and sign out (if your signed in) 3. now in the main menu of the xbox, go to 'join xbox live' 4. follow the steps using your new email address (takes like 3 minutes to do all this) 5. when done, it'll ask if you wanna upgrade to gold. say no thanks. then it'll give you one month free. 6. now go download this sucker!! i was just about to buy one month before i saw this and yes, it does work It's basically a 'cheat' to have unlimited gold membership, but obviously its pretty crap cause you have to change your username all the time. but for the purpose of getting this demo, it's awesome. Thank me later or now, either way :D Edit: Just found out that you can use the demo using your regular sign in once its downloaded. Talk about abusing the privileges haha

    Good god... No offense, but Classic Sonic in Modern Green Hill Zone is just fucking hideous. It's the swirling feet animation that makes it look so awkward, I suppose. Although, Modern looks good in Classic though, for some reason. It's like Rush in HD. And I lol'd at the S Tubes parts. Polygon Jim had to slide to get past that. EDIT: Nevertheless, I'd like to see him work some more through these things. It's too bad the game freezes in some parts. It'd be interesting if he could work around this.

    Sonic Generations : General Hacking Thread

    It's probably be done before, but I have made a playlist of all the levels and bosses we'll be seeing in the game. Check it out! Watching it all the way through, I'm mostly satisfied, but I really hope they play up each level's individuality to separate it from the mold. For example, make Speed Highway really feel like a highway stage with a city backdrop, but not a stage set within the city itself. Also, it's been shown that levels lead into each other with certain missions, perhaps this level will lead into City Escape with a mission that has Sonic running down the building, in that epic scene from the original level, down to the bottom to the end? Perhaps that would unlock City Escape. "At Dawn" was a great little tune though, maybe they'll use it for cutscenes in the level, or a mission or something, but I agree with Indigo that, while it probably will be anyway, that segment should be canned for City Escape. Likewise, other levels should get a similar treatment. Chemical Plant should really play up the fact that it's a chemical waste facility, and Crisis City should add plenty of lava-level elements to make it feel unique in its own right. Seaside Hill already has the right idea, focusing more on the ruins and water aspects of the stage to set it apart from Green Hill. Also, the bosses look great to me; I DID assume a bit with "Death Egg" actually being the boss of that level, but really, it's an epic showdown that I'd love to see return as representation for the Classic era. Also... I just noticed remembered that Perfect Chaos trashes the city where Speed Highway (and possibly City Escape) takes place. Also, based on the signs (Next Exit Central City, Chao Garden, etc), it could be a ruined version of City Escape. Plus, the truck does its fair share of damage... damn, the city gets abused. I hope that gets referenced in the game. *Sonic, upon arriving in Crisis City* "Aw come on! We JUST saved the city from Chaos... (turning to the player) again, mind you...(turns back) and it's up in smoke?! What the heck, there's even a tornado... made of FIRE. Man, someone's really gotta grudge against this place...." Stuff like that would be epic, and actually make sense for having these city levels in the game. But in the end, what do YOU guys think of the playlist, and how do you think Sonic Team should approach the development of these levels/bosses?

    Arguments with idiots

    Me and my friends were talking about the pros and cons of the different systems, and I used the good Wii games as an example. When I mentioned Sonic Colors, the guy instantly shot me down. "Sonic Colors? Seriously? What kind of name is that?" "I know the name sucks. What's important is the game, obviously. It's not like Super Mario Sunshine is any better, honestly." "Yeah, but that's a good game." "... Wait, what? Colors is a good game too. Arguably an even better one, actually." "Sonic sucks, man." "Okay, what games have you played?" "Those Adventure ones-" "That explains it. The Adventure games suck. You spend most of the time not even playing anything remotely "Sonic"; ergo, not having fun." "The camera was bad too." "I know it was, but they've fixed that since then." "I also played that PS3 one." "Unleashed?" "No, the other one." "Well of course you hate Sonic! You played the worst game in the series! I personally think the Sonic parts of the Adventure gaes are great, though they haven't aged well." "I actually kind of liked the PS3 one. They need to make the other ones like that." "... You're joking, right?" "Why would I be joking?" And I just changed the subject after that. I don't want to lose a friend because he likes shitty games.
