  1. I also miss the 3D, and not the half and half crap we have now.
  2. The only gameplay I'd consider crap is the super easy boost 2 win 2.5D that they try to pass off as 3D games. Really hard to say they would cave in prematurely when they have been pulling the bare minimum crap for 11 years. Also from my perspective the games are a bigger joke now than ever. The "3D" games spend half of the time in 2D sections. The storylines are so bland and uninteresting it makes stuff like Breadwinners look like Citizen Cane in comparison. Their big budget games that are supposedly worth $40 can be completed in less than a day. Eggman went from an actual threat to the heroes (I'm sorry HERO because apparently we can only care about one person in this damn series), to Bulk and Skull level of intimation. They never shut the hell up about the how "amazing" the Classic era is, whether it be from the deliberate bright imagery people thought represented that period or just putting Green Hill Zone at every opportunity. And Characters who has shown be able to step up to the challenge to fulfill their own goals, had all been regressed to spineless cheerleaders who can't anything without the title character.
  3. @UpCDownCLeftCRightC We’ve discussed this many times with each other but it’s been over a decade since anyone but Sonic been playable in a 3D game, the games have become stale since Colors for me. I’ve been asking for for actual characters to be playable in the 3D games since being disappointed with Generation and I’m gonna keep asking for them because there’s nothing you or anyone else can say that’ll dissuade me.
  4. For someone who views Forces as another solo-Sonic game, having Classic and the Fan Insert swapped for Tails and Knuckles or any pre-existing character that hasn’t been used in a long time would had change my stance on it. Sure the Shadow DLC is there, but it feels like a last minute thing they added on to soothe the people who were pissed off they got duped for actual characters being playable. Given how playthroughs I’ve seen gone through it in less than 20 minutes I wouldn’t be surprised if that was the case. As for arguments saying “they need to take baby steps” or “they need to get Sonic right before bringing in anyone else”, I see it as a huge load of crap since this isn’t some indie company were talking about. Despite their recent years SEGA is still one of the big developers in the gaming industry and yet I’m suppose to believe they need more than a decade’s time how to make one character work in 3D. No I’m not buying it and we need to stop giving them that excuse because that grace period should had ended with Generations.
  5. I don’t know which is more insulting. That countdown or having Classic Sonic show up right after the line “But even heroes need help” in the initial Forces trailer.

    Which character is the most unnecessary?

    Why not? Colors and Generations exist, and those games show the issue I have with the current games. Anyone else involed has regressed from capable individuals who can take care of themselves into helpless civilians planted to stroke Sonic’s ego because god forbid fans care about anyone else but the blue hedgehog. Going back to why I think Classic Sonic as a character unnecessary, it fueled the aminosity between the Classic and Modern fandoms. As if we weren’t divided enough. That doesn’t mean I want CS to go away. I’m fine with the two co-existing as long as MS gets his own identity that isn’t bogged down by going back to his roots all the time and he stands on his own without interference from his retro counterpart.

    Which character is the most unnecessary?

    Not just that but making him a separate from MS instead of having him being a younger version of him. Also I really can’t care about a franchise if only two characters are allowed to exist.

    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    Since #12 comes out next week, we’ll get preview pages sometime between Friday-Monday.
  9. With the games I’m currently uninterested for various reasons (TSR could be my first Sonic game since Generations). However the comics have maintained my attention to the franchise.

    Should Sonic take a break?

    @Naean The thing is I don’t want Classic Sonic to go away. I want Modern Sonic to exist without needing the aesthetics from those games. I’m just sick of hearing about Classic this and Classic that all the time.

    Should Sonic take a break?

    You’re still disregarding the people who either got into Sonic with his non-classic entries. You can still have your Mania series that are all about living in the past, while allowing Modern Sonic to exist with his own identity. A big part why I enjoy the IDW comics is because it’s the only current Sonic media that isn’t heavily fixated on reminding me how awesome the genesis era was. The idea of only solely focusing on Classic era by constantly shoving GHZ aesthetics is gonna result in diminishing results eventually. There are fans who are sick of the classic nostalgia fest. One example is how the Neo Saban era of Power Rangers has spent the last 8 years throwing Mighty Morphin call backs whenever they got the chance. Despite MMPR being more successful that didn’t stop fans begging for the franchise to move on from their 1993 roots. Because Power Rangers is more than just Mighty Morphin, and it wouldn’t last 25 years if it was the case. If Sonic as a game series can only be considered good if the games can never shut the hell up about how awesome the good ol days of 1991 were, then I see no appealing future for Sonic if he has to be frozen in time.
  12. I feel most people see TSR as a spinoff game like Riders and the Olympic games.
  13. So let’s not try at all and continue the laziness of the modern “3D” games of being dependent on 2D sections for half the time.

    Then no one should care about Tangle or Whisper because they’re not from the games.

    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    If people don’t like the Freedom Fighters, that fine. But the problem I have with this is that mindset has made the games so lackluster to me. It’s real easy to take that answer and turn it into: ”I want to see Sonic do shit, who are these other characters, I do not care for them”. This has me more concerned when people say the comics should me more like the games and can’t help but think of Classic nostalgia pandering and everyone else sitting around for Sonic to save them instead of being active in the plot. Even if I didn’t like the FF I wouldn’t demand that they go away because it makes me no better than the critics do demanded that the games should only be about Sonic and Eggman. Also there’s only so much you can do with the game cast alone where it’s gonna come to a point where comic-original characters are going to come forth whether people like it or not. Also I find it funny when people say fans only care about characters from the games when original creations like Tangle and Whisper got tons of love via fanart.
  16. I may not like games such as Colors or Generations with the over reliance on 2D sections and boost to win but I wouldn’t call the games “broken”. As much as I complain about the 2D/3D hybrid it’s not the biggest deal breaker for me. Hell I would had bought Forces if instead of Classic Sonic and the create-your-own they finally got at least 2 non Sonic characters playable from the start of the game and not some last minute DLC. And those people can bitch all they want because I’m tired of the bland monotony that came from the cast’s exclusion.
  17. I’ve seen people use it to defend the 2D sections in the “3D” games hence why I brought it up.
  18. It’s been over a decade now. They can’t keep falling back on the “we can’t get Sonic right” excuse. The longer people use it as to write off why Sonic can’t have a game that’s actually plays in 3D without being dependent on 2D sections, have characters that aren’t just another form of Sonic (Classic Sonic in Forces) or something the player has to fill in themselves as opposed to the various characters that’s been benched since Unleashed, the more pathetic it looks on SEGA. If I want to play as Knuckles, Tails or any of the characters that aren’t Sonic in a 3D game, I’m not stop asking for it because that’s what I want from games and the games haven’t been enjoyable when everyone became Sonic’s ass kissers who can’t do a damn thing without him.

    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    And piss off the fans who have been following the Freedom Fighters? How is this any different than critics of the games campaigning everyone but Sonic should be cut out? Why is it impossible to balance time or mix the two groups of characters together?

    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    How does it not make sense? I’ve seen arguments about the characters who have originated from the comics are taking away screen time from characters who originated from the games. Even as someone who prefer the game characters, I find that to be a giant load because reading through the Archie series pre and post Genesis Wave I found the screen time balanced between the two groups. Sure the brand has changed over the years but it doesn’t mean I don’t see it as a ridiculous argument.

    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    I’ll never understand the argument of the Freedom Fighters stealing the spotlight from the game characters, given how the FF were in the comic from the start.
  22. I had more fun with Sonic Chronicles than I did with any games since Colors. Calling Generations (PS3/360 verisons) “the best recent 3D game” is a huge lie given you spend more than half the game in 2D.

    Does Sonic Forces have you awaiting the next 3D game announcement?

    There’s no reason a Sonic game can’t have good gameplay and a plot that’s more than basic. Even when the gameplay is “good” it doesn’t save Generations from being my least favorite Sonic game when everything else around it is lackluster to me.

    Does Sonic Forces have you awaiting the next 3D game announcement?

    Yeah I thought about it, and I'm done with "simple" Sonic games. I still want the 3D games to be more than "simple". Because the games being nothing more than Sonic fighting Eggman where everyone else kisses his ass doesn't work for me. There are fans who actually enjoy the complex plots that don't ride on genesis nostalgia, who want to see 3D games contain actual 3D gameplay that doesn't cling on to 2D sections for half of the time and have the various characters actually do something instead of going gaga every time Sonic does a lap in Green Hill Zone. If people just want simple, Mania exists. You may be okay with it, but that won't stop fans for wanting more than that. Which is why I would like it where the games goes into separate branch series so people can choose what appeals to them and maybe stop fighting each other what Sonic "should" be.
