  1. Gonna be hilarious when SEGA announces a Sonic movie tie-in game produced by an American studio and it turns out to be the best 3D Sonic game in years.

      Seeing as what ROL ended degrading into partially thanks to Sega's interference, I'd doubt they'll have as much more freedom as ROL did.

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      That's a fairly low bar though.

      ^ i really loled at this pwnage bc its tru lol
      its so epic

      I was waiting for someone to say "*only 3D Sonic game in years"

    5. JosepHenry


      Now we all just forget Generatuons existed and it was really good

    6. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      @JosepHenry Generations is almost eight years old, and it's only decent. Like, special only because it's not bad.

      It's slowly getting harder to look back on Gens as fondly when it kickstarted the whole nostalgia fanservice thing that Lost World and Forces employed, more specifically the Classic part. Especially when they officially retconed Classic Sonic from that game into being the same "another dimension" Sonic and not being the young Sonic that Gens implied.

      To give it credit, it's by far the best anniversary title, and it does make sure to give classic, adventure and modern equal balance and not abused the same way that subsequent Sonic Team games done.

  2. Oh God it just gets worse.

  3. Do you think Sonic 06 will ever be re-released?

    1. Badnik Mechanic

      They were so ashamed of it that they delisted it entirely in an effort to save their brand image.

      Not that it actually worked, but I think it says a lot about how much they'd rather not revisit it verbatim.

    4. Lord-Dreamerz


      Nope. Thankfully SEGA seems to be smart enough to not do it.

    5. Polkadi~☆


      I can fly, Jova. If my grandfather's flight simulators are to go by, anyways.

      ...but i can't land


      Also, nope. You can't even find the digital download of the game on Xbox Live and PSN. SEGA really don't want to talk about the game.

    6. Wraith


      Probably not, sadly.

    7. Harkofthewaa


      ...Xbox One BC when?

    8. Spooky Mulder

      Spooky Mulder

      It makes me sort of sad that this hilariously bad game won't be playable on future consoles.

    9. Milo



      (apparently used copies aren't too difficult to find, from what i've read)

      e: besides, at least there's people busy making a faithful remake/port of the game (and with the bugs fixed); the sonic 2006 project

  4. Just finished Sonic Forces. That was horrible. Not even "so bad its good" like 06.

    Every single aspect of this game feels unfinished and I'm pretty sure whole levels are missing/cut. Null Space???

    1. Spooky Mulder

      Spooky Mulder

      Plus so many reused assets from Generations/Lost World? WTF happened during development that resulted in this hot mess?

  5. Why does Sonic drop like a rock in Sonic Forces? I don't remember Generations having these S4E1-like physics problems.

    I know I'm late but I got sonic forces for Christmas and really hate this game.

    1. Ferno


      I died so many times with Modern, Classic, and the Avatar because the physics for all 3 sucked

    2. Strickerx5


      They don't use the same gameplay engine from Gens for starters. A lot of it is actually from LW from what I recall. Though, why Classic specifically feels so awful is beyond me.

    3. ThePrinceOfSaiyans


      That game's mechanics are a dumpster fire.

    4. Ferno


      Not only is it the LW engine, but the game seems to try to take cues from Colors as well in places, which only further ruins things

    5. Spooky Mulder

      Spooky Mulder

      The level design is obviously atrocious but I can't get over these physics. I've died many times in the same places but have yet to find a section that is challenging instead of just broken. Plus, the levels are so short that I feel like I never got a handle on any of the characters controls because I was always bouncing back and forth between them.

      This is such a weird game.

  6. I wonder if we will get a proper Sonic game in 2019 or if we have to wait until 2020.

    1. Kiah


      The later the better. I just want to skip 2019 as far as Sonic is concerned due to this movie alone. TSR and whatever else they have up their sleeve I fear wouldn’t be enough to balance out that travesty. 

    2. Dr. Christmas Mike

      Dr. Christmas Mike

      Sonic 2020 is gonna be a weird time. I can feel it. Everything is probably gonna be chrome in the future, just like Spongebob predicted.

  7. Finally playing Forces...personally i find it worse than 06 so far. It's got less ambition and personality. And it seems even more unfinished.

    1. Spooky Mulder

      Spooky Mulder

      Why is everything so scripted? I remember Generations Classic portions having odd scripted sections in loops and other spots but this is soooooo much worse and less disguised.

    2. Kiah


      At least I find some parts of Sonic ‘06 enjoyable. I legit struggle to do the same with Forces. 

  8. At this point, I think I would be really happy if SEGA announced Sonic Colors 2 for Switch — or even just a port.

    1. Tangled Jack

      Tangled Jack

      They don't do direct sequels in general, but something that utilizes wisps in better ways, sure, I'd welcome a game like that.

    2. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      Colors 2 is something I absolutely DON'T want.

    3. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Didn't they release Colors 2 on the Wii U already?

    4. Bobnik


      Didn't they release Colors 3 in 2017 already?

      : >

    5. MegasonicZX


      Nah, I have absolutely no faith in the team being able to utilize the wisps as well as they did the first time now because of just how much the botched them up in lost world and how bland they were in forces. If we ever get a sequel to colors I can almost guarantee it'll be a shadow of the original games design.

    6. Bowbowis


      Yuck. I think I'd honestly rather have an '06 2, at least then they'd be trying to do something interesting.

    7. RosaRosaRosalina


      can we just have a sonic pocket adventure 2 and call it a day

  9. So here's my big question: does the Sonic movie get a tie-in game?

  10. Been trying to install Green Hill Paradise Act 2 but it keeps saying there are files missing when I try to launch it. Any tips? I'm new to the fangame scene.


  11. Do we have any proper Sonic Forces sales figures yet?

    1. Operationgamer17


      SEGA doesn’t give out sales figures anymore, IIRC.

  12. Has the game "Defunct" gotten any attention here? I had never heard of it, but it seems like there's a lot 3D Sonic could learn from this.


  13. Concept: Luigi’s Inferno

    When Mario dies, Luigi is armed with the Poltergust 6000 and sent on a mission to Hell to retrieve his brother’s soul.

    1. Spooky Mulder

      Spooky Mulder

      It is strongly implied that Luigi is forced to do this every time Mario dies in a game.

    2. KHCast
    3. Ferno


      what kind of skeletons did mario have in his closet to go to hell

    4. Patticus


      @Ferno His genocidal hatred for, and destruction of, Koopa-kind.

    5. Pelvic WOO! engine

      Pelvic WOO! engine

      Murdering innocent turtles for starters.

    6. KHCast


      Possessing people maybe is one reason 

    7. Legosi (Tani Coyote)
    8. Dee Dude

      Dee Dude

      and capturing a gorilla while trying to kill it’s baby.

    9. Spooky Mulder

      Spooky Mulder

      Well he must be going to Hell because every time he dies, he falls off-screen. He doesn’t float away to the Cloud Kingdom.

      Poor Luigi has to go down and retrieve him every time you get Mario killed. There’s a warp pipe straight to Hell underneath Peach’s castle.

  14. RIP I thought I could get out of buying Sonic Forces for myself by putting it on my Christmas list. Oops. No Sonic Forces. Now I have to buy it myself after all. Should’ve just gotten it at launch.

    1. Spooky Mulder

      Spooky Mulder

      Maybe I can find it used already somewhere. I really am trying to avoid giving SEGA the satisfaction.

  15. So, new comic aside, do y’all think the franchise will be dormant in 2018? No new game? 

    1. PaulyBFromDa303


      Only if 2019 is big.

      And I mean HUGE

      They'll at least have something small though. Maybe a mobile game

    2. Pelvic WOO! engine

      Pelvic WOO! engine

      I think we're gonna get something small in between 2018-2020. 

      They oughta go all out for 2020.

    3. Ferno


      Now that the HE2 is done, I think they'll go back to 2 year cycles. 2019 seems to be a safe bet, with another 2 years left over for whatever the 30th anniversary game will be.

    4. Forte-Metallix


      Probably just a few spinoffs and mobile games. I just hope Sonic Team will take their time with the next main game instead of making the same mistake a fourth time.

    5. PaulyBFromDa303


      @Ferno Yeah I didn't think about that. 2021 is definitely gonna be a big year

    6. Ferno


      i mean like, it kinda has to be at this point

      there's also a real chance that the next console gen could start around that time if not sooner, so it'll likely be another "sonic has to prove himself on brand new powerful hardware" game

    7. Pelvic WOO! engine

      Pelvic WOO! engine

      Hedgehog engine 3 and knuckles confirmed.

    8. Ferno


      "Hedgehog Engine 3 & Echidna" pops up on screen at *insert gaming event here*

      *Iizuka and Aaron have the biggest grins on their faces as they stand on stage and are met with applause*

    9. Pelvic WOO! engine

      Pelvic WOO! engine

      I can so see that happening.

  16. I read Trump tweets in Mike Pollock’s Eggman voice.

    1. Shaddy Zaphod

      Shaddy Zaphod

      Don't insult Eggman like that

  17. Supposedly, Sonic Forces is selling for $24.99 at Best Buy during their Black Friday doorbuster sale. In-store only. Same price they’re doing for 1-2 Switch, a mediocre, months-old party game.

    1. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      Still overpriced.

    2. Strickerx5


      I'll chalk 1-2 Switch's price up to Nintendo's stubbornness in the pricing realm. They never like to lower any of their software's initial pricing and like to overprice things.

      Like, real talk, 1-2 Switch should've been to the Switch what Wii Sports was to the Wii.

    3. Radiant Hero Ike

      Radiant Hero Ike

      Rayman Legends Switch is also 20 bucks.

  18. I wonder how long it would take Modern Sonic to boost from end to end of the BOTW map. 

    1. JezMM


      God I'd love to play that though tbh

    2. Wraith


      Could somebody mod that together

      Maybe a gens engine would have trouble loading all of that

  19. LOL been toying with a thread idea for a while. Finally decided to post it. Did on the day the site breaks and won't post threads ahahahha of course. 

    1. Inkling Cooper

      Inkling Cooper

      What is that thread idea you were going to post?

    2. Spooky Mulder

      Spooky Mulder

      You’ll find out! I copied and pasted it in case it didn’t post so I’ll put it up when things are back up and running.

    3. Spooky Mulder

      Spooky Mulder

      Well I finally posted it.

  20. Trying to post a topic. Keep getting Error Code EX1634

  21. Really wonder how Nintendo would handle a 3D Sonic game if they were building it from the ground up. I think “run/roll down slopes to go faster/jump higher” is a base concept they could do a lot with.

    I know a lot of people hate the idea of a 3D-collect-a-thon approach to Sonic but I’d love to see it tried.

    1. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      3D Blast had collect-a-thon elements to it (though you were required to get every single Flicky, which made it pretty linear), but I feel like open-ended Sonic levels with stuff to collect could be done better and be made into a good game.

    2. Pelvic WOO! engine

      Pelvic WOO! engine

      I think they should handle it like collecting emblems in sonic adventure dx like make it completely optional.

    3. Spooky Mulder

      Spooky Mulder

      The thing I hate about optional collectibles like that is that there’s really not much incentive to collect things. I had a lot of fun collecting moons in Odyssey because there’s actually rewards for collecting more.

      I was not a fan of the sun and moon medal set up in Unleashed but that had more to do with implementation than the actual idea of collecting in a Sonic game.

      I didn’t hate the free-the-animals set up in Lost World but I still don’t think that worked well. Being forced to replay linear levels to collect things you missed doesn’t work as well as 3D sandbox environments built around reaching new areas to collect things.

  22. SF Speed Battle is a pretty broken game. Cool concept but the constant lag on my iPhone 6 is game breaking.

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      On my 5S, I find that theres always lag concerning attacks. I get hit out of nowhere,band my attacks will always miss. Winning the race tends to come down to who gets a speed boosting item at the start m

    2. Spooky Mulder

      Spooky Mulder

      Same situation. It’s a cool idea but it just doesn’t work. Not sure if it’s better on newer devices or if it’s just server lag. Oh well.

      I really wish they would port Mania over to mobile.

  23. In Sonic X, was it ever explained how Eggman came to be in Sonic’s world in the first place? (His grandfather had to have been from Earth due to the whole SA2 adaptation storyline)

    1. pppp


      Not really. Another reason I hate Sonic X, it's not only crap on its own, it takes stuff from the games and makes it worse.

    2. Panda Claus

      Panda Claus

      Tbf it did do some things the games never thought about. I still really like how the SA2 adaptation addressed the GUN soldier who pulled the trigger on Maria and explored his side of the story, if only briefly.

  24. Odyssey’s rolling physics are on point. How embarrassing for Sonic Team.

    1. Ferno


      I wonder if they're even embarrased at this point or if they even care.

    2. DoubleXXCross


      Super Mario Odyssey is the first good 3D Sonic game.

    3. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      Considering how the spin dash has never really been a big thing in 3D Sonic, I don't think they consider it an integral part of 3D Sonic. 

      In fact I'd go as far as saying that the spin dash and rolling are more liabilities than help in 3D as Sonic is sufficiently fast enough to not warrant the loss in control, but shhhhhh.

  25. So how do I find the Sonic Forces demo in the Japanese eShop? I wish I understood Japanese o.O

    1. Spooky Mulder

      Spooky Mulder

      Nevermind I found it! Can’t wait to get 3 minutes of annoyance out of this
