    Next person who complains about this not being a "real review" or in any way suggests that the reviewer did not play the actual game gets a strike.

    This accusation that the Polygon reviewer didn't even play the game is so baseless and ridiculous that I'm going to have to ask, as a moderator, that it's not discussed further in this thread. We don't need a pointless tangent based on nothing.

    SwissBunny reacted to Roger_van_der_weide in Sonic Forces SPOILER Thread   
    Man what a dissapointment.
    A game about Dr. Eggman in charge. So do we get scared citizens worshipping Eggman statues, giant Tv screens of Eggman demanding citizens to do silly things in his honor, an even more extreme version of Mania's Robotnik Tv show? Do we get Robotnik themed circusses, opera's, themeparks? Nope, nope nope.

    People on this thread keep comparing it to SATAM Robotnik but even that's way overshooting it, at least SATam Robotnik sits on an epic throne, feels like the center and beating heart of a terrifying empire, sending out giant armies or robots and battleships out to destroy entire forests.
    What does Forces Eggman even do? Hang around with Cubot and Orbot in Green Hill zone immediatly getting his ass kicked by Classic Sonic hopping by. Great.
    That's the culimination of the concept of Eggman being in control of the world, him being the same dumbass he is in the light hearted filler adventures.
    Except here it feels horribly out of place.
    It's not light hearted silly Sonic, but neither is it Dark Serious Sonic. It's nothing. It's in a meaningless purgatory in the middle.
    Even in Sonic Colors Eggman had more of an evil presence with the Themepark anouncements. This game has the coolest premise ever, why is it so booooooooring??

    I rushed off this crummy Flash movie in 5 days after I was amused with Webber's statement that Big's having vacation during the Forces events. I figured I wouldn't even touch the surface of the actual crazy things Robotnik would be doing as master of the world, but nope, even with rushing everything and having to delete half my jokes I got more out of the concept then Forces ever did. Boo.


    And the story keeps focusing on stupid Mc Guffin nonsense. The writers are practically patting themselves on the back how proud they are that they came up with the great plot twist of "Eggman had 2 power sources" like that's some kind of crazy twist. Yawn. Sonic Adventure Eggman had about 4 or 5 back up plans and never made a big deal about it. Even in Colors, Eggman had 6 or 7 generators, but now him having one back up is supposed to be the great twist? Buzz off.
    Isn't that the type of mundane stuff you should get out of the way with the in-level banter? Sure let Knuckles prattle on about back up generators and other Mc Guffin stuff during the level missions. But keep the cutscenes for cool stuff happening.

    Just like Sonic Lost world there's no flow in the writing. We don't get a transition between Dumb Knuckles/ Guardian Knuckles into him taking the role of Rebellion leader. He just magically is. All we get is the comic and even that one was a "Oh, I suddenly decided to become a leader of a rebellion" out of thin air.
    I hate complaining about this because I'm so happy Knuckles is finally useful in some way. But it's exactly this type of careless "Oh, now just assume THIS is how the characters are supposed to be" quality of wiring that creates my intense distrust and lack of respect in the writing and why the Sonic series is just a pile of brainless meta fanservice these days.

    We don't get to see the world being peaceful and natural before the time skip, so there's no contrast after Eggman took over. It's already broken and corrupted before Eggman's victory, with no advancements afterward. We don't see a heroic tough looking Tails suddenly realizing he's way over his head and break down, he's cowardly right from the start.
    Sonic isn't affected by his "torture". It's just empty meanignless dark banter just like Lost world with it's "Eggman will strangle the Zeti" stuff that never went anywhere. All this "dark dialogue" just feels like troll bait. Get sensetive Sonic fans rioting over nothing.

    And speaking of Zeti, now I still don't know if these guys are still alive, if Zavok has any opinion about him being cloned.
    And there's nothing to say about Infinite. He's just there. Half his screentime is going "Hmpf, you're not worth fighting" and the other half is him getting his ass kicked.

    And Iizuka's statement that he wanted people to think about "Why" Shadow was evil becomes a giant facepalm. Of course everyone's crazy theories end up being a million times better then reality, even the sarcastic and cynical ones.
    I assume we get to see more of Shadow's thoughts in the DLC because the only insight in Shadow's opinions on the matter we get is "Hmpfh." Even Sonic Boom Shadow is a more complex character then Forces Shadow and my mind boggles what an insane statement that is.

    All this talk about that 3d Sonic and Dark Serious Sonic Doesn't work will drive me nuts the coming weeks, this game is neither. It's dull.
    Dull Sonic doesn't work. And yeah, well duh.


    That said, I don't hate the game too much.
    It feels okay to play, like Sonic Boom Fire and Ice. Mostly harmless. Love the music. Level themes are interesting.
    The levels have brief moments of fun gameplay.
    Far as I'm concerned, it isn't a bad game. It doesn't do anything I hate.
    But man, the missed oppurtunities, the wasted potential. That's a giant elephant in the room suffociating this tiny little game that has no chance of even coming close to the impact it should have had.
    If we got this game with the story scope of Sonic Colors 2, I'd be praising this game as a fun little but unimpressive side game. But alas, it just had to take the coolest and most epic premise possible and steal that away from other more worthy games to try and pursue. And man, is it pathetic to see it try to aim for the stars when it can't even hop over a pebble.

    And are you kidding me that the very first Modern Sonic stage we saw of him in the city is actually from the second half of the game? A level resembling a tutorial stage? Seriously?

    This one may be a bit of a stretch.
    I always wondered why Chocola was named the way he was. I never heard anyone call chocolate "chocola" in my lifetime. Why didn't Cream call him "cocoa" or something less... obscure. But then I noticed something interesting about Chocola's design.

    The way he's colored, he kinda looks like a glass of soda.

    Cream may have seen this too. So she may have merged the words "Chocolate" and "Cola" to create his name "Chocola".
     
    And the best part? If my headcanon is correct, then Chocola technically shares two puns with his owner:
    Chocolate Cream and Cream Soda.

    Stop thinking about stories as nothing more than a logical sequence of events and think about it in terms of its meaning and how the audience relates to it and you might realize why that isn't an excuse.

    Sega could set up a temporary service for custom made toys. Fans could just send designated manufacturer a picture/screenshot of their OCs, the manufacturer convert your OC into an decent toy/doll/figurine, and then they send the little hell-spawns right at the costumers' doorstep. Fans will be happy and Sega gets a shit ton of money. Everyone wins.

    Good bloody grief, this line of discussion is an even bigger turn off than Forces itself. FFS SEGA get your shit together - stop trying to explain things that don't even need explaining with dumb ass-pulls, and explain the things that do need explaining in the games and not on your Twitter handles. 
    My stance? Sonic is Sonic. Modern Sonic and Classic Sonic as two different characters is stupid outside of the fourth-wall breaking anniversary shenanigans of Generations.

    SwissBunny reacted to Indigo Rush in Sonic GDK (So How About that Green Hill Paradise Act 2?)   
    It's definitely a rough demo, but I feel like there's a diamond in that rough. If given some better direction and more intentional level design (which isn't to say the level design isn't intentional), I believe it's the start of the definitive 3D Sonic experience. Needs work, but I think it speaks volumes that I had as much fun as I did with a fangame of all things. It's also worth noting that a lot of the weird non-palatable issues (wonky camera, clipping on walls, imperfect angles for rolling) are due to this being a non-professional effort by a small team; if you gave Sonic Team the task of designing the code around this concept for a 3D Sonic platformer, I think we'd see something truly amazing.
    That being said, what makes this fangame so awesome isn't necessarily the final execution, but its proof of concept for 3D Sonic controls. Could it be better? Absolutely. Does that totally override everything its going for? I don't think so. I think GHP2 is one of the most fun experiences I've had controlling Sonic in 3D.
    Again... needs work. But I liked it a lot.

    Maybe it's only more recently than that that webcomics started becoming financially successful or even financially viable.  Or maybe it's because Penders is now "indie" so to match that he's trying to reconstruct his image as somebody at the forefront of new developments in culture and media.  Back when he had a job, it was cushy; he didn't have to care about the hows, because he could write whatever he wanted and it would be put out there for him.  Now that he doesn't have that support, he has to find a way of attracting attention from the general public - without compromising his "creative freedom," of course - and that means jumping on every bandwagon you can think of.

    Oh my god. 
    Thank you guys. I needed that laugh. That...oh that was just so funny. But for old time's sake.
    What the biggest load of nonsense I've ever heard. Fucking animation and voice acting on the app, along with a fucking PS4 app? Are you seriously trying to tell me that I'm start up my PS4 one day, go to the PS Store, and see THE LARA-SU CHRONICLES VIDEO GAME COMIC APP in the highlights section? What a fucking load.
    Then there's his lame excuses. ''OH, I CAN'T POST A SCREENSHOT BECAUSE IT DOESN'T SHOW HOW AWESOME MY APP IS BECAUSE IT'S JUST SO AWESOME'' and then he actually has the fucking nerve to claim it blows other developers out of the water? Oh fuck off Penders.
    But here's a better question. Exactly why would I want a comic app with games, voice acting, and animation and such? The clear fucking flaws being that putting animation onto his fucking awful artwork isn't going to make it anymore appealing to the eye. Adding voice acting to his laughable idea of a script isn't going to make it any less cringe worthy. On top of that. On a fucking comic app of all things, why the fuck would I want to play games on it? On a comic app, I'm going to be going there to read comics, not play a bunch of shitty games.
    This is just all so laughable.
