  1. Stockholm Syndrome probably. I like giving chance to something that hasn't been consistent quality-wise, cuz an inconsistency at least can bring good stuff. Hell, even mediocre stuff from this franchise I consider good if they're entertaining and fun. If it would've been consistently shit, then I wouldn't stick around lol. Also most of the Sonic stuff outside the games has been pretty good for some time.
  2. Positive Things About Forces?

    I swear I've seen a similar topic here months ago... Anyway, positives: - OST (for the most part) is a big step-up from Lost World for me. Sure, there are some good tracks in that game (Sea Bottom Segue is the prime example), but it's mostly forgettable for me. - I actually like the art-style they're going for. LW artstyle was too simple, too cartoony for my taste, while Generations was too busy sometimes. - It looks to have one of the more entertaining plots in years. Pretty much every game after Unleashed (sometimes even Unleashed itself) had barely any stakes, cutscenes barely had any action, I didn't care about anything that was happening on screen at all. This game already looks more interesting plot-wise, cuz I want to know who is Infinite, how are other villains back, why are Chaos and Shadow evil, etc. Sure, the plot might not be good (hell, I expect it to be not good), but if it's entertaining, it's already better than any other Sonic-related game plot since Unleashed. - the system of renting someone else's Avatar is a neat idea - you can pretty much equip 2 wispons at once and change them, which is what I wanted to see earlier. - the levels aesthetically look pleasing to me. They aren't as busy as Gens or some Unleashed levels, but aren't as simplistic as Lost World. (I guess this goes to the art-style, but eh). - Water looks nice. - Lives system is gone, thank god ST got rid of that outdated gameplay element. - Shadow is playable. Sure he's pretty much Modern + chain-homing attack, but I'm not against it. I think that's it for now. I can't deny that gameplay looks really iffy, there's too much automation and Classic is in this game, but I'm still standing by my opinion that outside of gameplay everything else for me looks, well, better than anything Sonic-related in the last several years (outside of Mania ofc).
  3. So we now know that 100-ring cap and the 20-ring loss system is for easy difficulty. Are there any other changes between easy mode and "normal" mode? Cuz if that's the only change, then that's dumb imo.

    1. Blacklightning


      I feel like that's actually going to make certain things harder rather than easier.

      Well, unless there just happens to be at least 20 rings in a boss arena in order to tank another hit or something.

    2. Bobnik


      Either that or it's gonna be 20% out of all the rings in the boss instead of flat 20.

    3. JezMM


      Maybe they'll start you off with 100 rings for boss fights?  So you basically get 5 extra hits and then you're down to the same staying-alive ability as normal mode.

  4. Sonic Forces - Space Port Gameplay

    Looking at gameplay, you actually don't lose all the rings now, but only 20. Looks like they changed the ring system compared to earlier demos. Weird. As for the level itself?... From gameplay standpoint it's not great. Linear, automated as balls, now with weird perspective. But eh, I stopped expecting "good level design" some time ago. Aesthetically I like it actually, doesn't look as Chemical Plant-y as I thought it would, which is nice. Music is also pretty good for me. Overall I don't hate it, but I wouldn't say I like it per se. And I guess I know what to expect from a game now - a game that definitely ain't gonna beat Gens any time soon gameplay-wise, but still looks better than Lost World to me.
  5. I guess my birthdate got wiped, rip. It's 16th October 1996. Pls and thank you.
  6. Huh, I guess I never actually entered my date of birth if I don't see my nickname in "birthdays" tab.

    1. Kiah


      Not necessarily. There's a forum-wide glitch that will wipe out one's birthday when they make an edit to their profile. That may have happened with you.

      The only way we can work around it is if you mention your birthdate and a moderator can fix it and enter it in for you. 

    2. Bobnik


      Right, completely forgot about that.

    3. Solly


      well happy birthday anyway 

    4. Kiah


      Okay I was looking and waiting for a response here in this status update. Not the thread which I happened to see per my last sweep of the boards before this mod was to go to bed lol

      Anyway it's been fixed so you should be good to go and now I can go to sleep 😴

  7. Sword is a superpower now, huh

  8. Sonic Forces OST - Aqua Road

    Didn't expect DnB to be in this game at all, and it sounds... pretty neat, I must say. One of the favourites so far!

      This is actually nice.

  10. Sonic Forces Digital Comic (Monent of Truth, Stress Test)

    It's cool to see stuff like that. That was a nice part 1 of the small comic. Nothing bombastic, sure, but not offensive either. where's the game tho
  11. Yeah, okay, Denuvo is just a waste of money and resources:


    1. GhostlyWind


      Yeah, Forces might as well drop Denuvo at this point.

    2. VEDJ-F


      They're not going to though.

  12. Something happening tomorrow

    iirc, most of these "teases" lead to some big announcements. The first ever piece of concept art back from pre-SXSW lead to the first Forces gameplay, name announcement, etc. The I think 2nd? tease of a concept art lead to the reveal of OC. A part of a screenshot from Edgy The Hedgie DLC (moreso Shadow being in Sunset Heights) lead to the announcement of Shadow DLC. Every time there was some small part of some concept art, at least with Forces it pretty much always lead to the actual announcement. I doubt they would tease a concept art without any reason other than to show the concept art. It's weird to do that now, sure, but eh.
  13. Speaking of Flynn

    He's in Burbank right now

    That means he might be a special guest for tomorrow's stream, cuz why not, right?

      Interesting... I'm expecting comic news tomorrow morning then, and no Forces news I guess.
