  1. On some level, I wouldn't be against a Sonic Adventure remake, but it would have to be something more akin to the FF7 remake (re-envisioning the concept in a new way) than a straight up creation of the game as it was for me to be interested.

      Honestly same. I love the original SA1 to death warts and all but FUCK purism, do what makes the best possible game out of the foundation the original built, it doesn't matter how different it turns out so long as it shares the same iconography and is actually good

      I hate the confusion of the terms remake, remaster, re-imagining and whatever other buzzwords you hear that are all used interchangeably.

      If I'm understanding you correctly, you'd rather any SA1 remake was not virtually 1:1 to the original. If so, then I agree. SA1 is absolutely great, but it's got huge problems that would be compounded by a straight up remake. Big's gameplay needs overhauling, possibly some of the other characters too. The story and cutscenes need to be completely reworked. Just take the SA1 concepts and make a new game.

       

      And if Sonic Team ever remake SA1 in any capacity it'll probably be God awful

      I think they should  follow Generations mentality for level design, mostly brand new layouts  with refined gameplay but keep the most iconic segments the same for Sonic, Tails and Amy maybe let Knuckles be playable in these stages too. Then overhaul Big and Gamma's gameplay entirely. Just have Big's stages limited to side games in the hub instead of a full story and maybe do the same for Knuckles emerald hunting, but keep his unique bosses and flashbacks so he  still plays an active role in the story. Also scrap Casinopolis for a more traditional Casino stage.

      All of the effort to reimagine it, you may as well just make a new game if it's going to diverge from the original

      @KuzuI'd argue you might as well play the original if you want the exact same experience again, especially if you want -nothing- changed except visually. Purists would never be happy with a straight-up remake because anything that would inevitably be different about it (even if it was minor) would cause contention, but they'd know they were getting into something that's not supposed to be the same with a re-envisioning. But to each their own. In the sea that is the internet, there are a myriad of different ideas and opinions. That's what's good about it, and bad about it. lol

  2. I had a dream about the next Sonic game. It was the first level, pretty straightforward/linear, mostly flat, decently long. It kind of looked like a mix of Planet Wisp and GHZ. I was playing as Sonic, running forward normally, and jumped up onto a rectangular platform that had a road with a long stretch of  timed spike strips, tried going through the section just running forward and not stopping, died, re-spawned, got to the same section, tried holding B, ended up boosting through the section no problem, and then got to a trail of rings at the end of the section, used the light dash, ended up at another trail of rings and a series of enemies going around in a circle around Sonic, plus a wisp capsule. I homing attacked the wisp capsule, a button prompt appeared to use it, I used it to transform into the hover wisp, pressed the button, and the Wisp did a loop-de-loop in a circular motion, destroying the circle of enemies around Sonic. Seemed like it controlled like the adventure games at the slower speed and of course like the boost games at the higher speed, and the level design seemed to accommodate both gameplays decently well.

  3. Happy Easter Fools Day.

  4. We're all here because we're on board with Sonic. *Shot*

  5. I drew GHZ again.

    lol I'm so bad at drawing but at least I'm having fun drawing stupid doodlesunknown.png?width=958&height=454

  6. I drew Green Hill Zone:aCxaJ5s.png

      Better than my drawings.

  7. I can just imagine Infinite at the next Monster of the Week Meetup. Zavok's all "How tough are you?" and Infinite's all "I defeated Sonic twice... in one game'".

      ''How tough are you?''

      ''Are you implying I'm weak?''

      ''Uh, not really I'm j-''

      ''I'M NOT WEAK''

      ''Dude c-''

      ''IM NOT WEAK I'M NOT WEAK I'M NOT WEAK EAAAAUUGH'''

      Infinite: "I'll have you know I got my ass kicked by Shadow, and I only cried for twenty minutes."

      Zavok: "I think you're looking for that game."

      Infinite: "Are you saying I belong in Sonic '06?!"

      Zavok: "Oh, no, I was actually pointing at that game."

  8. So... Sonic Forces PC version sucks. I got to the third stage and now my game has me automatically going to up and left forever, regardless if I have a controller plugged in or not.

    1. Typical

      Typical

      A lot of people have been saying that in the steam reviews... Hopefully that should be patched soon

  9. the one thing sonic can't force us to do is get along

    1. Shaddy Zaphod

      Shaddy Zaphod

      Or fill a swimming pool with lemon jello. He hasn't Forced us to do that yet

  10. a dog is telling all your friends untrue things about you while sleeptalking, and it's ruining your life, but you shouldn't do anything to the dog

    because you should let sleeping dogs lie

  11. there are actually no sonic games

    this is alex kidd stadium

  12. How would you react if SEGA randomly distributed Sonic forces to you on Steam, for free, and let you play the whole game now?

    1. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Free game? I don't know how to react to something like that other than with gratitude.

      unless it's animal crossing, then i take it as an insult

    2. SonicWind

      I'd nab it, of course.

      i'd be paranoid that sega is sending virus infected copies to all the forces haters.

      That would just tell me that Sega has absolutely no confidence in it.

      ...which isn't anything new now but come on =V

    8. Scott

      Scott

      I'd say thank you and accept that Sega were going bankrupt

    10. Adamabba

      Adamabba

      I guess playing it at 10fps is better than not having the game at all

  13. So one thing I've yet to see from Forces' story, which was to me the most intriguing thing about the plot that they're going for, is...

    Since Eggman has conquered 99% of the world already, how has his rule over the world actually changed things, how does he act as the world's leader? Since he's basically accomplished his life-long goal, you'd think he'd gloat about it, considering how ego-maniacal he is. I'm surprised to not see his face plastered everywhere. For that matter, why are his own creations no longer plastered with his image? It seems uncharacteristic of him to go with bland militaristic designs, even if it's for the sake of mass-production. He's never had problems with mass-producing his colorful creations.

  14. the secret is that forces on;ly has 2 levels but there's 100 acts of each level

    1. Shade Vortex

      Shade Vortex

      they're all linear, moslty 2d, and short, spam-filled with enemies and have "multiple paths" that involve the wispons but they all generalyl get you to the same place, just in a slightly different way

      this can be said for any sonic game really man

    3. Shade Vortex

      Shade Vortex

      not to the same literal extreme as forces, where literally, the pyramid level in the demo had one path that was just a lightdash shortcut to the next area

  15. What if the Switch version of forces lets you have the OC cosplay as Nintendo characters?

      Yeseyesyesyesyes Yes that'd kick sooo much ass. I want this too happen dammit.

  16. they call it a message board because it's where you go when you're bored, and it's made out of boars

  17. in like 3-ish years i'll have been part of this forum and retro for a decade

  18.  somebody probably made this joke already but I don't care.

  19. Funfact: Just so I can watch the Anniversary party stream, I swapped shifts with one of my coworkers. I originally was gonna have Saturday off, but now I have Friday off. Yay!

  20. Man I'd be totally in on the Abridged tournament thing. Too bad that I neither have the time or the the patience to do the editing & lipsynching. All I'd be good for is script writing and voice acting.

  21. Today, I plan to test out 3DS streaming. Anyone interested? No I don't have a capture card- there's homebrew for streaming now.

  22. As the Super Saiyan God, I decree this is now Son Goku Stadium. Now give me 1,000 bowls of rice before I Kaioken your ass into hell.

      About the planet Vegeta, I couldn't save it. Fixed point in time. I am so so sorry.

  23. The sequel every Sonic fan has actually been waiting for all this time: Sonic Labyrinth 2: Electric Boogaloo, Gotta Go Even Slower.

  24. I was intending on adding everyone who got suggested to me as friends on Miitomo, but the more friends I get, the more suggestions I get. It'd be an endless cycle, until I am friends with everyone on Miitomo!

  25. What is the best April fools joke this year?

    My favorite is probably "Digimon showdown" for Pokemon Showdown.
