    I care about my Faith in Christ above all, I love to cook when I can, chilling with a good friend, a cool Fall breeze and an autumn-spiced cup-o-joe, rainy Summer nights, a beautiful Winter snowfall, bright Spring mornings, a bowl of curried rice, a calming Jazz melody, sitting alone bundled up by the fire, a fun romp through an arcade-like game, an immersive adventure game, and of course something about that blue hedgehog keeps me coming back.

      I didn't know sonic makes gyros now. Are they any good? The last one I got was from this place at a mall and they put too much sour cream on it.

  2. For what's probably a minute long level, that's about 6% of the stage. *sigh* I'mma just leave SSMB for now.
  3. Why even have a discussion forum.
  4. I wouldn't put much stock in that. From reveal to release, few things ever change.
  5. Yay: Shadow is playable; Rouge and Omega are somewhat relevant again; cool Supporting Me remix; it's free Nay: That gosh awful level design; BLOCKS; awkward 2D in full force; mostly a Sonic skin with one new ability I think? tl;dr: more than I expected, but I didn't expect much

      Ooooooooooh okay, yeah. Clearly the past 20 years of my life have been a lie.

      Don't say that otherwise life will realize you're right and take away what nice things we do have.

  9. I think I'll genuinely like Forces' story. They're finally bringing the rest of the cast into the spotlight and I want SEGA to know that I appreciate that. 

    1. Josh


      I genuinely don't see where the excitement is coming from. Most of them are in roles that allow them to stand around talking like they usually do.

      What are you talking about?

      They never talk to each other.

      They are usually Sonic's cheerleaders, but there is no Sonic this time around.

      I'm just glad that the story seem to have some actual weight instead of Sonic and Pals standing around and stuff "kinda happened" because Lost World was the WORST when it come to the characters doing nothing interesting

    5. Blue Blood

      The story with Eggman, Infinite, the Phantom Ruby and Classic Sonic could very well be very interesting. I'm looking forward to that. But I'm absolutely not feeling the use of other characters as "the resistance". I really dislike that plot point and don't think that it will work for any of the cast involved. It's bringing them into the spotlight to be very generic "army HQ" cheerleaders.

    6. Diogenes


      even if i trusted sonic team to write well (and I don't), Forces just looks like a clusterfuck so far. it's like they couldn't just pick an idea and stick with it, they had to slam every idea into one game. eggman's taken over the world, and he's got a new edgy furry minion, and he's maybe powered by the ruby from mania (it's apparently involved somehow at least), and he's got several previous villains working for him (only one of which reasonably should be, and only two of which should be villains at all), and we've got a bunch of returning characters making up The Resistance, and there's your own original the character joining them, and something might be up with Tails considering we haven't seen him at the resistance base, and classic Sonic also fits into this...somehow?

      cut about half that shit and you might have a workable premise for a game. as is, I can't imagine how this is all supposed to tie together sensibly and not seem like a bloated mess.

    7. ShroomZed


      The story looks rubbish no matter how many characters are in there. Seeing old characters doesn't automatically make it good. 

  10. Sonic themed YouTube channels and fangames emulating the graphic design of the current/latest Sonic games is the worst recurring trend. Sonic Forces' visual theming is especially dull.

    Also, the interface design is misunderstood minimalism incarnate. 

    1. Indigo Rush

      on reflection though people are probably latching onto Forces' graphic design aesthetic (and Runners/Lost World before it) because it's so simple to implement, as oppose to Sonic Mania which is fairly detailed with it's lettering and the geometric explosion style is more difficult to emulate than one would think. 

      Glad SSMB keeps it clean.

    2. Ayliffe


      The most irritating thing about Forces design is that I can see what they're going for and the idea behind it (going for a rebellion propaganda poster-esque style) is hella solid, but the execution is literally just "WE DREW SOME OBLONGS AND ADDED A GRUNGE EFFECT TO THEM" and it sucks

      tl;dr the idea is good but Sonic Team's handling it so of course they borked it

    3. DanisWhite


      My favorite thing is when they randomly add Mario somewhere in their banner as if to say they aren't TOTALLY into Sonic even though that's 99 percent of their content.

  11. I remember you stating that you thought Mushroom Zone was the best example of 3D Sonic level design you've ever seen. I'd like to know what about it specifically stands out to you. 

    1. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      Clear direction without limiting travel via hallways, limited use of speed boosters, and are instead placed sparsely rather than forcing the player in one direction, platforming that doesn't rely on precision, very limited presence of bottomless pits, slopes and curves abound, setpieces (giant tree) that aren't automated, and (minor) branching paths.


    2. ShroomZed


      It seems like an okay level, but it seems rather flat and sorta basic to me. I think Windy Valley beta has an edge to it just due to the fact that it plays around with multiple levels a bit more and likes to wrap around itself. 

    3. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      Windy Valley beta looks a little directionless, but it's absolutely one of the good ones.

      I definitely appreciate it's level design with slopes and wallrunning, and exploiting those to find shortcuts and stuff. Top tier.

    4. ShroomZed


      It is a bit wide in places but I think it's just the right amount of openness if that makes sense. 

      Mushroom Zone definitely has some things going towards it but it doesn't live up to the potential. There are slopes and curves but they don't do much, there's not many places to jump off and get some air. There are side areas, but they don't do much and either go nowhere or put you right back on the main path almost immediately. Probably the worst part of it is the section where you go in the tree and there's just a flat pathway winding surrounded by a giant pit. 

  12. Forces is going to release and a whole lot of nothing is going to follow for the next 1-2 years.

      So basically since Generations it's been a whole lot of nothing?

    2. Bobnik


      I'd rather the franchise go on a 5-year break tbh. Or I dunno, have spin-offs/small games.

    3. TheOcelot


      don't worry I'm sure SEGA will release ports of Sonic 1&2 😂

      *release more

      only this time we know that even after 4 or 5 years we could still get something mediocre

      @Mayor D

      Well there was this game called Sonic Mania I think 

    8. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Yeah but IIRC Mania is just a crappy pixel game for babies. Sonic didn't even have his signature sports tape.

      Pessimism at its best. It's the kind of attitude I dislike, but it's true. At least I'll have the Idw comics.

      Is it bad that I've forgotten Mania exists?

    11. TCB


      Hopefully they push for more non Sonic stuff in the meantime, yes
