  1. Thanks for the write-up! Has anyone checked whether or not Sonic bails out if you stand still for 3 mins ala CD?
  2. I imagine the onus will be on Sonic Team to mame Classic Sonic feel good - especially since Mania will come out in the preceding months. Making him exactly like Generations would probably not go down well. A small part of me hopes that the Mania crew have assisted with/given the engine to Sonic Team, allowing them to do their own thing while still making it feel good. Modern could go any number of ways. If we're just talking about Boost style, then Sega would have to ensure that they don't overly rely on 2D sections. Improving how he controls when not Boosting would also be great.
  3. I mean, it would be cool if Mania's 7 Emerald ending had Modern Sonic appearing out of nowhere and telling Classic about what has happened in the future - leading to Project 2017. That being said, I doubt they would bend over backwards to connect the two.
  4. Classic Sonic being anything less than playable in a capacity similar to Generations would be weird considering the trailer. Aside from the obvious, Sega went to great lengths to reference Generations - whether it be through the acknowledgement of the game at the beginning or the visual similarities between Generations' debut trailer and the 2017 teaser.
  5. Agreed. Give Modern Sonic room to breathe in the 3D space. On the subject of length, I think a shorter game with little in the way of fluff suits Sonic perfectly. Generations almost got it right, though I feel all those missioms could have been substituted for another Zone or two.
  6. Oh my lord. Let me be frank - I've never played Final Fantasy for an extended period of time. VII is pretty much a complete enigma to me. But holy crap, I'm aware of its significance and importance to a lot of people. To actually see Cloud make an appearance is incredible, Nintendo history or not. To see him fighting Mario, Link, Sonic, Mega Man, Pac Man and Ryu? Cripes. Speechless. Sakurai always surprises me when I think he can't possibly surprise me any more. Magnificent.
  7. Happy birthday, boss!

  8. Oh yeah, I forgot about the limitations that he had to work with at the start. Condensed episodes from the start is another reason to get excited for the reboot.
  9. Alvin released this screenshot on Twitter: Here was the accompanying tweet: Alvin has also said in response to a fan that the Bowser fight will still be the main event of the episode. Having rewatched the original series after hearing of the reboot, the first episode drags quite a bit - even if it is only meant as an introduction. Other than a quick intro for Mecha Sonic, the main point of action is a kart race which is lacking in imagination or action - which is understandable given it was Alvin's first episode. The fight with Bowser didn't happen until the next episode. Given the relatively short running time of said episodes, I always felt that they should have been merged into one for the sake of pacing. This news therefore fills me with hope. Not only will we see the Bowser fight in the first episode, but we will finally get to see Wario and Waluigi fight - something that was teased but never came to fruition in the original series. Colour me excited! -- Alvin has also set up a patreon if any of you wanna contribute. So far he'll get over $1200 per episode. I don't know how high that number is relative to other similar projects, but that's pretty impressive. It seems like a lot of people want to see the series realise its potential. Hopefully the financial kick will provide some added motivation. https://www.patreon.com/AlvinEarthworm?ty=h -- On the earlier discussion in regard to the tone of the story, I'm in the camp that felt that killing off Sonic's friends was unnecessary. I understand wanting to up the stakes, but it didn't feel in line with Mario or Sonic. I hope that, if they do indeed stay dead, that they're wished back via Chaos Emeralds/Star Spirits - which would be help keep to the DBZ homage. Best case scenario for me would be if he just leaves them all badly incapacitated. Or perhaps he could just come up with some other reason as to why Sonic and Shadow end up in Mario's world - as Dio mentioned earlier, it shouldn't be too difficult. I said back in 2012 that I felt that the writing was poor, with bad jokes, reliance on tired internet memes, stupid dialogue, weird characterisation and poorly thought out drama detracting from the best parts - the fight scenes. Alvin seems to be aware of this, so I hope he can deliver on that part. I'm not expecting award winning stuff - it's a sprite animation - but if he can make the periods of respite between fights more tolerable, then that'd be great. Man, I feel like I'm 12 all over again. Looking forward to seeing where this goes!
  10. Speak for yourself! Wolf was my boy in Brawl, and I was gutted when he wasn't in the roster. Nothing wrong with bringing back old favourites. Of course, that should definitely be balanced with new content. Ryu, Suzaku Castle and the new rumoured stage are good starts.
  11. One of the worst things about this is the fact that his last public communication with the fans was an apology for E3. :/ R. I. P.
  12. Hajime was always well off in the chest area, I don't think Katze has had any effect in that regard.
