  1. Loving what I've been seeing from Sonic Forces today. The one thing that would really satisfy me is if they put Ice Cap zone in the game. I was pissed that it wasn't chosen for generations.

      Give me more than 4 city stages and 2 ocean/green hills levels and I'll buy Forces in a heartbeat. Give me varied levels, that's all I want. 

      CAVE LEVEL ICE LEVEL LAVA LEVEL SPACE LEVEL HOW COME WE NEVER GOT A LAVA LEVEL IN A BOOST GAME.

      If Leonard Nimoy was still alive they could have used that as an excuse to have Xeahnort pranking Sora & co. by disguising himself as the atlantian king.

      Or having Xehanort confront the king.

      I can't trust them not to outsource to fucking EA after what they did with the Star Wars license.

      I'd be okay with it. I was thinking maybe they could make Disney Interactive a part of it, so they could get back to making games again.

      So SEGA will be dead in a few years because Disney doesn't know how to run a gaming business

      @Dejimon11They DID, actually. It was Disney Interactive.

      Aren't they closed down?

      Iizuka is the sole reason Mania exists so without him you can say bye bye to any new Classic Sonic games like it.

      I'd wish him good luck in the future but I wouldn't be too broken up by him divesting his involvement in Sonic TBH. I think a lot of people tend to downplay or ignore a lot of the questionable / bad design decisions and games he's made, while also giving him too much credit for games he had a more limited involvement in, like his roles in Sonic 3&K and Mania (speaking of which...).

      With that said, I think I do prefer the supervisory role he has now for Sonic projects, compared to the past games he was actively involved in as a producer/designer/director. Him leaving the Mania dev team to their devices was easily the best decision he's done in years.

      @Red Nope. Iizuka greenlit and supervised the project, but had Taxman (along with SoA) not presented him his Sonic Discovery pitch, there would be no new classic Sonic project (whether it be another port/remaster or a new game) whatsoever.

  13. Reaction: Iizuka stops working on Sonic games after forces.

      *shrug*

      He's not the only reason Sonic Team games are made this way... Idk if he's even the main reason tbh

      I'd assume decisions like the Avatar or the Werehog would come down to him, but everything else seems like it'd come from it being pitched to him and awaiting his approval, rather than him actually creating any of the ideas themselves

    4. Pelvic WOO! engine

      Pelvic WOO! engine

      Gonna miss that guy. I'll never forget when he brought sonic out of the dark ages with colors. So long iizuka, time for someone else to give it a shot.

    5. McGroose

      McGroose

      The amount of shit Iizuka gets is laughable and shows we really don't know how Sonic team works. You lose him, hardly anything changes.

      Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

    6. Pelvic WOO! engine

      Pelvic WOO! engine

      Yeah I'm pretty sure it's mostly the higher ups at sega responsible for the stuff we don't like sometimes.

    7. Bobnik

      Bobnik

      ...Is he even working on this game?

    8. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      Well I mean the captain of the ship should take responsibility for his crew

      A good head-of-production would shut down bad game ideas and decisions before they're approved of in the first place. Make sure above all else a well-made game is what's being made, not a mess of ideas.

      I don't think he should take the brunt of everything, but he certainly could be doing a better job than he has in the past 10 years...

  14. Reaction: Paramount instead decides to make the Sonic movie fully animated.

      I'd rather a major restructure first. Give the new team some smaller sonic projects or some different I.P. to work with then get them to release a new 'AAA' sonic game.

    8. Strickerx5

      welp another platformer bites the dust

      and probably sega too as, lets face it, every series needs a constant development house to at least stay relevant and without sonic... sega's done

      That would be way past coo-no no no! Not cool.  

      That needs to be part of a Sonic game that I'm actually excited about if it actually was going to be a thing.

      I'd rather this franchise just go extinct already. And give us Peanuts Movie 2!

    3. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      @Froste-the-SnowMetallixEh, the Peanuts Movie was so pure that I'd rather they just keep it as a stand alone film. Don't want to risk them ruining anything.

      But in terms of Ice Age... eh, why not. The series was already dead to me after 3 so it wouldn't hurt.

  24. Reminder that Unleashed will be 10 this year.

      forces has the better lighting, but worse art direction and use of that lighting overall which still puts it behind, imo

      The fact that Sonic Adventure and Spyro the Dragon turns 20 this year makes me depressed. *sigh*

  25. Review sites bashing Sonic is nothing new. But the recent video from IGN, really made me want to bang my head against a wall.

    1. QuantumEdge

      QuantumEdge

      Meh, I've gotten used to IGN being allergic to anything Sonic.

    2. CottonCandy

      CottonCandy

      Yeah, I've I too have gotten used to bashing. Its just funny to me now. The part that got me in the ign video was one the reasons of older games were bad is trial-n-error design. Because, yeah, no other platformer in existence has ever had that, ever. Lol

    3. QuantumEdge

      QuantumEdge

      Having seen the video, I truly think those guys have it in for the Blue Blur.  What they said was straight up unfair, objective criticism.  Trial and error has been the basis of gameplay for gaming as a whole during that time.  Using that as a reason to knock the series seems almost desperate to find any reason to say "Sonic's never been great".  What a joke.

    4. Johnny Boy

      Johnny Boy

      And then they said the trailer for the 3D game is about modern and classic running to go have sex with big. What in the actual fuck.
