  1. True but some of the complaints was more: “Why had ST made these people into such pathetic wimps?” I just want them better integrated in the games, have an actual involvement in the plot outside of being delegated to the cheerleading section, make them playable for god’s sake as in I want to be in control of them. Just because Sonic is the title character that doesn’t mean he’s the only one I’m allowed to give a damn about. And if the critics’ complain, fuck em they’re gonna bitch no matter what ST does and they had their way for so long because in my point of view the games had suffered for it by becoming dull desperate attempts of constantly “going back to Sonic’s roots”. And if that’s all they want, no one is stopping them from playing the genesis titles. Let the games move forward and not stuck in the same spot of reminding people how amazing 1991 was.
  2. Critics hating on anyone who isn’t Sonic, Tails, or Eggman is the reason I stopped giving a crap about their opinions on anything.
  3. Sonic Universe #21-24: Treasure Team Tango What sells it for me is seeing all these various characters: Team Rose (with Balze standing in for Big), Team Dark, Babylon Rogues, and Team Hooligan bounce off from each other.
  4. That could change if they somehow got people who actually gives a damn about making an actual 3D game. With the revolving door of the studio, that could happen but it's still a low chance. Also I find it hard to believe Forces was rushed when they had 4 years of development and it's no glaring signs of the game being unfinished.
  5. You like the classic games and ok with the current direction of the games. I like the Adventure games and not thrilled on how the games turned out in recent. Let's just leave it at that before things ugly.
  6. It's not about me refusing to give the classic games a chance. It's more that I'm burned out on SEGA's constant nostalgia pandering from making their games 80% 2D Colors onward, referencing Green Hill Zone at every opportunity and throwing in retro Sonic in Forces despite having his own damn game to himself. Along with the fact that the games having nothing that got me into Sonic in the first place. You think the Mania game is good fine, I'm not stopping you. But just because a million people love the game, I'm not obligated to play the game if I never cared for damn thing in the first place. Not everyone loves Modern Sonic, but not everyone has to love the Classic games either. Also, "Me i actually know what a good sonic game looks like", really doesn't help the situation and continues to show the problems with the fandom.
  7. I know I haven't been blunt about it so I'm gonna do so now: I don't give a damn about Mania or anything heavily tied to classic era. Not when it came out, not when it got overwhelming positive reviews, and not when it short animated shorts based on it. The classic aesthetic doesn't appeal to me as much as the Adventure era. You say that it's the best game and you're free to do so but I don't agree with that. Not now not ever.
  8. Yeah I'm bored and sick of the classic pandering in the games so I have no interest in throwing $30 for something I don't see as satisfying.
  9. A game where I get to play as actual non-Sonic characters, the plot is more serious than anything since Colors, it's fully in 3D and I get to actually give a damn about anything aside from the gameplay? As long as they don't rush the game out leaving in technical issues and long ass loading screens then yes. Fucking yes I would gladly take another 06.
  10. Do you know how pathetic that sounds: "Hey guys let's make a 3D game" "Oh but that's too haaaaard and I don't want to take the time to make the game work in a 3D environment" "Ah screw it just make most of if it 2D" At some point they have to let go of the crutch of 2D for the 3D games. If the games can't be in 3D most of the time thendon't fucking call it a 3D game. If your 3D game can only work with padding most of it with 2D sections, then call it for what it really is: 2.5D. If I really wanted 2D Sonic I would had picked up Mania or it's future sequels, which really shows how unnecessary 2D is for Modern Sonic.
  11. What's wrong with making a pure 3D game? I'm sick of these games lying to me. If you gonna call it a 3D game, then commit to the 3D. If it's really that difficult to make a 3D game then work on it, don't just pad out half the game with 2D sections.
  12. So the only other option is for shove more 2D sections in the 3D games have constant call backs to the genesis days never do anything new.If people really want a nostalgia trip, what’s stopping them from playing Sonic CD nonstop. I’m not even trying to defend Forces. I got turned off the moment Classic Sonic showed up in the first trailer. To me it doesn’t matter how well executed the nostalgia pandering is. It doesn’t change that having constantly calling back to Sonic’s roots for almost a decade and I’m bored of it.
  13. They have been revisiting Sonic’s roots for most of the games since Colors. It got old when they went to his roots for Lost World. Doesn’t matter how well they use their nostalgia it still feels like a cheap tactic “oh wow it’s Green Hill Zone again! It’s go great seeing it for the 40th time in a row”. ”Ah man I’m so happy they good guys destroyed another Death Star. What is this the 5th time around.” If the only way for these franchise to be good is to constantly rely on vintange iconography then there’s nothing to look for to for the future. It’s pretty much like the New Super Mario Bros games. You play one there’s really no point to pick up the other 5 games.
  14. Yeah the same thing can be said about Pokemon Let’s go Pikachu and Eevee but that doesn’t mean I want every pokemon game in Kanto or that I only want to see the original 151 Pokémon despite the my first game was version blue. I just feel nostalgia is used as a crutch where they think all they have to do is throw in “element X” and all is good. With Sonic they constantly keep reminding players of the classic era with how they shove Green Hill Zone in every game. Mania doesn’t do much for me since I was never impressed with it since it was another staple of classic pandering that I’ve grown tired of.And as much as I love the Adventure era I would have the same issue if the games kept calling back to City Escape non stop. My issue with both Sonic and Star Wars is that they need something truly new to the table can’t be so dependent on reminding me of the good ol days because if people just want a reminder of what they like before, there’s nothing stopping them from playing the genesis titles or watch the original trilogy on an infinite loop.
  15. Honestly I’m feel that both have been obnoxious with their attempts to win over the nostalgia crowds. Just swap Green Hill Zone and 2D with Death Stars and First Order(Empire 2.0) and the problems of both aren’t that wildly different. And I know someone’s gonna say, “well nostalgia sells”, but that mentality can only go so far. Why should I care about the next Star Wars film if it can never grow beyond the suffering, underpowered, underdog rebels who’s victories can be easily undone who always have to go against some variation of the Empire who can just show up with another Mega weapon and superior military strength as if their loss never happened. Why should I care about the next “3D” game if it’s 75% 2D, the main campaign can be beaten in less than 6 hours and everyone who isn’t the main character is still portrayed as helpless infants who can’t do anything for themselves. If they just wanna feed the same crap over and over then why even make new material to begin with. Just re-release IV, V, VI and the 1991 game every few years since it’s not any different from what Star Wars and Sonic is doing now.
  16. Jewel's color scheme comes from her being based on the jewel scarab beetle There are many color variations such as green, gold, silver, but this one is more reminiscent for Jewel.
  17. @Myst aside from the surplus of desperate nostalgia pandering to the vintage section of their fanbases, not much.
  18. Happy 1-year anniversary to IDW Sonic!
  19. Adventure 2 Battle Heroes Shadow Rush Rush Adventure Chronicles Riders Riders:Zero Gravity Unleashed *if we including mobile games, Forces: Speed Battle I would include the Advance games but I’d never played them but from what I’ve seen looks to be enjoyable. The reasons I like these games is due to the various characters, how they interact with each other and the rising tension that comes for the storylines.
  20. Or it could have been handled better than what we got. So on another subject; I’m looking forward to when we get an antagonist that’s independent from Eggman with the occasional collaborations. My favorites from the Archie days were the Iron Queen and Breezie.
  21. That’s not what I meant. I feel that if they were to emulate the games they would be so dependent on Sonic for everything. Like how Tails became inactive when Sonic was captured in Forces until Sonic #2 showed up. Despite when he watched Sonic “die” in Adventure 2 he steps up to the plate and faces Eggman head on.
  22. The fact that they haven’t seen much action is one reason why I’m hesitant on the comics being “more like the games”.
  23. At least they were able to handle themselves on their own with to a certain extent with stage bosses as opposed to sitting on their asses watching Sonic doing everything little thing for them.
  24. Because it’s been established since Colors; anyone who isn’t Sonic are incapable of doing anything for themselves, despite being shown they’re capable enough prior to that.
  25. I find the idea that “fans don’t know what they want” to be a huge lie. Because fans generally have a good idea about what they like about their favorite franchise. The issue comes from the expectation of the fandom’s desire to be strictly uniform with no variance. You pick out 10 random fans and ask them about what they like about Power Rangers or Star Trek there a good chance you’re gonna get 10 different answers. And I’m sure the same can be said about the people on this very forum when it comes to Sonic.
