    Bad I've got no reason to believe Sonic Team are going to move on from their sloppy engine and worsening takes on the boost gameplay style when Forces sold well enough despite mediocre reception. We'll see the same outdated models, bland art and shallow gameplay that's all spectacle with no substance. Forces did nothing if not prove that SEGA do not have any idea (or that they don't care) what their audience wants. There was no effort put into making it a solid game there; it was a cynical plea to almost every fraction of the split fanbase. Fans who liked the early-mid 2000s games got their "dark" story with lots of characters and edgey new villain, Classic fans got Classic Sonic to play as, modern fans got the boosting and then there was the avatar for the huge subset of fans who make their own characters and just the general popularity of personal expression in games these days (there is of course overlap between these groups). None of these features are close to being fleshed out, and particularly in the case of the boost and Classic gameplay styles, they took the already flawed gameplay of Generations and proceeded to make it worse. I don't believe that these were conscious changes made to improve the games that some people disagree on, but rather were the result of an inexperienced team with poor direction, poor vision and poor understanding of what they even wanted to achieve. The choice was to make a bunch of things that looked like they were what fans wanted, and they didn't go to any lengths to really deliver. The gameplay was phoned in and lazy. Whatever Sonic Team try next, I don't think they'll be appealing to fans such as myself. They'll continue to go after thd lowest hanging fruit, rather than making a quality product that will appeal to a broad audience because requires more time and money (and the right talent). I can't comment on the content of the game, like additional characters, story or even gameplay style. They might move on from the boost, I guess? But even if they do, I'm really sure they won't do it right. Lost World was a mess, as were the avatars and Classic Sonic in Forces. It'll be a low quality game.

    Rabbids Go Home's music is so distinct and I'm saddened this sort of new identity the series established never carried over to later installments.

    I used to be rather pessimistic when thinking about the next game but, recently, we've started to see changes in how the Sonic brand is handled. I'm actually expecting a better game than Forces but I have no clue in what direction they'll go.

    Sweet mercy! Have any of you heard Ronda Rousey as Sonya Blade yet? It's nearing Aerith from KH2 levels of delivery.

    Looks like KH3 is getting a critical mode tomorrow. I hope it's not as BS as other Osaka team made crit.mode, cuz it's been a long time coming.

    Am I the only one who can't take the "Hbox crab throwing" seriously? On one hand, I'm glad Hbox won, and fuck the guy for throwing stuff at him. On the other hand: IT'S A FUCKING CRAB. Like, a literal crab. I may sound like an asshole for saying this, but it makes me laugh more than it outrages me.
