  1. I have very little faith in Sonic 17, but I hope we get some positive info for it. If if has boost then there's very little to save it. However, if they learn from Whitehead and make the fake Classic Sonic from Generations resemble the true Classic Sonic from the glorious Classic titles, then hopefully we can get something good. Fixing fake Classic Sonic's physics and personality should be top priority. I don't want to see Generation's scripted sequences return, all because Sonic team were too lazy to implement Claasic Sonic's physics properly. See Mods, I didn't attack Modern Sonic, I can improve From now on, I won't attack Modern Sonic! I'll only sing the praises of glorious Classic Sonic!
  2. Fame Plaza just doesn't have the same ring to it. Another incredible aspect of the illustrious Classic games is the names of their levels.
  3. I'm glad they could stick with Studiopolis. It's fresh while still keeping to the spirit of the amazing Classics.
  4. Also, I just want to address the topic that I praise glorious Classic Sonic too much and denigrate the 3D era. I know this is hard for a lot of Sonic fans to accept, but Modern Sonic is so inferior to Classic Sonic that it's blindingly obvious. The Classic series had far superior gameplay, level design, art syle, music and were revolutionary, changing the gaming landscape permamently. The best of 3D Sonic is mediocre at best. Everyone outside the hardcore fanbase knows this, but for some reason, some of the hardcore fans are in complete denial about it. I understand if you personally prefer the 3D titles, but you have to accept that the Classic titles are so obviously better. The Trump analogy Azoo used is completely absurd and I'm going to be outright confrontional, I won't just sit and be compared with the most regressive man in Western Politics. Even if it is just by association with old, bigoted voters. I mean, come the fuck on. This is a far better analogy. There's an anime that ran for three seasons and it's groundbreaking. It's technically a marvel and sets a new gold standard for anime going forward. However, in the fourth season, the show completely changes direction and is worse in every conceivable way. Not only does it betray the design philosophy of the original three seasons, but it's a massive drop in quality. Many fans would want to see the series truly go back to the design philosophy of the original seasons, the seasons which made the anime a phenomenon in the first place. I find this a perfect analogy to Sonic. We haven't had a mainline Classic Sonic game since Sonic and Knuckles and I think it is fucking insanity. Mania is a step in the right direction, but it's not a high budget main release. And you know, I really should be able to express this completely reasonable opinion.
  5. Hyper Sonic was just a fun, cool extra. Not everything needs a deep, hidden secret. Besides, the team could think of some way of building on him.
  6. Stomping makes sense from a gameplay sense as it is more fluid. The main problem with the Modern Gameplay is that it often feels too mechanical and clunky. In fact, I think people like the Adventure gameplay most because it is the most organic. Obviously, Sonic in 3D has never matched the fluidity of glorious Classic Sonic, but the stomp is a step in the right direction.
  7. The illustrious Classic Sonic games don't get the recognition they deserve really.

      Dude, you could literally ask any Brit about Sonic 1-3 and they'd tell you they've at least heard about it. 

      Do you want every human being to have played it or something?

      illustrious - Well known, respected and admired for past achievements.

      The well known, respected and admired Classic Sonic games don't get the recognition they deserve really.

      PS: you do realise Illustrious means something that is well known and respected right? Quite an oxymoron there.

      Read any reviews in the last 10 years? They just say Sonic is having a hard time blah blah blah the classics are the best. We get it. Don't become a broken record.

      I used a synonym for glorious :P

      They're pretty much the only ones that get recognition tho.

      Well Mania is a good start :D

      Considering how games like Sonic 4 (in regards to that being a disappointment) and the Boom games (in regards to being another Sonic 2006-tier screwup) has prompted people to think the classic games (and thus Sonic in general) were never good, I'd say Pixel kinda has a point.

  8. Yeah, the main point of bringing up Fang was to disprove Diogenes' point about the Hyper forms being non-obscure. Fang is an obscure character, but he's appeared in numerous spinoffs and has been referenced in Generations and now Mania. Meanwhile, Hyper forms have only appeared as a secret when Sonic 3 is locked on with Sonic and Knuckles and have never been referred to since. It's clear that the Hyper forms are far more obscure than Fang and are very obscure by extension (as Fang is obscure as is). I'd say that as the Hyper forms are so obscure, they'd fit right into Whitehead's habit of incorporating obscure Sonic trivia into his games.
  9. True Classic Sonic had a mix of cute and serious in the glorious Classic titles. The problem with Generations was that he was overwhelmingly cute and cuddly.
  10. Fang was an obscure character, which is why I compared him to Hyper Sonic. It's cool to see him back though.
  11. They obscure so far as they've only ever been used as a secret unlockable when you lock Sonic 3 to Sonic and Knuckles, and have never been referred to ever since then. That's pretty damn obscure to me. Far more obscure than Fang the Sniper, who's very possibly cameoing in the game and a lot of people are surprised by that.
  12. It fits with their constant references to obscure aspects of Classic Sonic is the point. But we'll only know for sure when Mania releases.
  13. It's very likely considering that he's consistently been making every conceivable obscure reference to the Classic titles he can, going as far as to reincorporate beta animations. Considering his track record, it would honestly be more unexpected that Hyper Forms don't appear (even if the Super Emeralds don't). The Hyper Forms just fit right into what he's been previously doing.
  14. Sorry, but what do you actually do for SEGA? You are a nobody as far as I'm concerned, and you seem to get away with all kinds of baiting and trolling, kinds that no other forum user would get away with. It would make sense if you were somewhat well known, like RubyEclipse, but I've never heard of you in my life. Whitehead would include them if he could, it's totally in his style. He's the kind of guy who reincorporates beta animations for crying out loud.
  15. Nah, it's listed as Lava Reef 3 on the level select. I was referring to the Eggman chase. I said the titles not the sprites, you pumpkin Look at CD's opening and the promotional art
  16. I'd be surprised if Whitehead doesn't include Super Emeralds to be honest. He's a huge, huge Sonic fan, going as far restoring and recreating cut content and beta animations. Knowing Whitehead, if he can include Hyper forms, he will.
  17. I was thinking of playing Sonic 1 over the weekend. I always feel like I dont play it enough considering it triggered the glorious Classic series 

    1. FriendBot


      Playing through Sonic 1 on mobile is a good time.

    2. Pixel


      Great idea Soni! I'm decided!

    4. TheOcelot


      Sonic 1 is very cool.

  18. It would be good to see a silent Classic Knuckles, chuckling away with no dialogue.
  19. I don't want Classic Sonic to speak, mainly because I don't want the true Sonic from the glorious Classic titles to be tarnished with horrible voice acting and direction by assocation with a hypothetical talking fake Classic Sonic. And the Classic Sonic games are glorious and I will continue to call them glorious.
  20. If it is like Generations, I hope they get Classic Sonic's personality right and make him more prominent in the plot. One of the best things about the glorious Classic titles was Sonic, and I hope that the true Classic incarnation of Sonic eclipses the poor man's imitation of Modern Sonic. Here's hoping that Mania's hype and development will guide and complement Sonic Team's latest incarnation of the true Classic Sonic.
  21. The Sonic and Knuckles music was probably changed due to the MIDI files. The instruments on the original tracks wouldn't have worked with the MIDI file. As for San Andreas, the Steam port's music was patched out. It wasn't that it was re-released with missing tracks, the exisiting port (which was put onto Steam with the music) had its music patched out. I understand S3AK isn't a port, but the point still stands. The reason I used MVC2 as an example is because that is also emulated, but is clearly not exempt from getting pulled from online, regardless of whatever was agreed at the time of it being up on Steam. The point stands that, regardless of the fact Sonic 3AK is emulated, it makes no sense that it can happily sit for download while it has a copyright problematic soundtrack. Besides, aside from Sonic and Knuckles PC Collection, there is absolutely no evidence that SEGA can't use the soundtrack. There is no S3AK soundtrack CD, but there could be any reason for that. Green Hill Zone and its soundtrack is used all the fucking time xD
  22. Gotta disagree with people defending Sonic 06's inclusion in Generations. The game was fucking awful and nearly killed Sonic for good, hardly something that should be in a celebratory anniversary title. The fact it unironically appears in a title celebrating Sonic's history is both astounding and hilariously awkward The idea that it *has* to be included because of its marketing and mainline significance is also wrong. I'd say that it deserves to be disqualified merely on account that it is one of the worst games of all time. Generations isn't supposed to be a historical chronicle of the series, but a celebration. For this reason, Generations didn't need to rigidly stick to including all mainline titles, especially one as awful as 06. It's even more galling that Sonic 06 got in but Sonic 3 didn't. Yes, technically Sonic 3 and Knuckles is one game, but I'd far rather the best game in the series got one more representation than the worst game in the franchise be included. 4 levels from Glorious Classic Sonic 3 from Dreamcast 2 from Modern Makes sense to me. Or rather 4 Glorious Classic 2 Dreamcast (the Adventures) 3 Modern, with Heroes in its correct place.
  23. Except that in cases with games that genuinely have music license problems, their soundtrack get patched on Steam. GTA San Andreas is a really clear and obvious example. Or the game would just get pulled entirely, similar to how Marvel Vs Capcom 2 was pulled online after Capcom lost the Marvel License. Not a music license, sure, but a similar concept. If Sonic 3 and Knuckles really did have such a massive legal problem with the soundtrack, it wouldn't just be sold unedited on Steam. That makes absolutely no sense, and is contradicted by the above. And why has this conspiracy suddenly extended to Sonic 1 and 2? Their soundtracks have been reused and remixed loads of times. It's far, far more likely that Lego Dimensions doesn't use some of the old music for completely seperate reasons. I swear, I can't wait for Ice Cap Zone in Sonic Mania to finally kill this litigation conspiracy once it is inevitably in the game with a remixed version of its original soundtrack.
  24. Why do people insist on this music conspiracy theory; that SEGA don't own the rights to Sonic music. Green Hill Zone's music in particular has been used in all kinds of recent Sonic games and Sonic spinoffs. Sonic Mania is an obvious example, but Sega Superstar Tennis is another key example. And if Sonic 3 and Knuckles' music is such a no go minefield, why is it being sold on Steam with unpatched music?
