    FriendBot reacted to Nepenthe in Wispon Warriors: Color Powers in Sonic Forces   
    That...still doesn't seem ideal to me. If Wisps HAVE to be in every game from now on, they should all be fully open to use any time like the Elemental Shields.

    The idea that each weapon can only use one Wisp is a bummer, because the fact that they act like slightly-limited elemental shields that augment your movement without having to stop to activate them in highly contextual situations makes this technically their best implementation ever. I honestly hope that's not the case, or that your weapon changes on the fly when you pick up a different Wisp or something, because having to go back and outfit your Avatar with new gear in order to take some new path in a level is going to be tedious as fuck.

    Studiopolis act 1 was my favorite track so far, until Mirage Saloon was revealed, and it took the spot
    There's something about this track that makes me absolutely adore it, i can't point exactly what it is, but it's there.

    FriendBot reacted to Fletch in The Sonic Mania Soundtrack thread!   
    All the songs that I've been able to listen to in Mania have all sounded truly fantastic. From the original pieces to the remixed pieces. Studiopolis Act 1 still remains my favorite song in Mania thus far, and while I'm not entirely sure it'll be topped since I feel as if I religiously listen to that song like crazy nowadays, I'm sure the rest of the music will be really good.
     
    Really hoping Sonic Mania gets a proper physical soundtrack release, and even if it gets a vinyl release like Aaron Webber was asking the fans about back at SSXW, then that'll be even better!

    Probably to emphasize that they're a customizable character, and don't have a defined look.

    FriendBot got a reaction from mikeblastdude in Sonic Mania and Forces on YouTube Live @ E3.   
    It's kind of amusing to think back when ol' Brad was here and was talking about how great Mania is shaping up to be and people are telling him how is he so sure about it and it now turns out he's one of the level designers for Mania. 
    That's funny as shit.
    But yeah bless the Mania team, ALL OF THEM! Mania is gonna be such a treat of game to play!

    It's not as if we didn't know, but it's still exasperating to see confirmation. They have so little confidence in the most logical use of other characters (ie Sonic 3 and Knuckles) and even with just making a game where Sonic can stand alone without an ill-conceived gimmick.

    Considering the general complaints of modern park Avenue are note for note exactly the thing iIzuka said they improved I'm left to assume he's either lying or simply meant later levels. And considering Modern Green Hill got the same type of scrutiny before people saw the rest of the Gens levels in willing to give him the benefit of the doubt

    The comment about the story is my biggest takeaway from this.  I've wanted a Sonic game with a proper plot again for a while and my hopes regarding it have been just a little heightened.

    Out of all of the other members that have now been revealed I think it's amazing to see Falk from Before/After The Sequel be somewhat involved with this game.
    Although it's stated by Tee Lopes that he isn't composing but rather sound mixing:
    Falk has also made a statement on this game:
    It would have been interesting to hear what kind of tracks Falk could have provided for this game.
    Now I think the other person I recognized was Paul Veer. 
    He is a pixel artist and in 2015 he was commissioned by SEGA and Cook & Becker (There currently doing the 25th Anniversary art book by the way) to do a Sonic art piece to go along with the rest of the other SEGA franchises.
    Here's a Retro article talking about his piece: https://www.sonicretro.org/2015/09/ray-and-mighty-finally-found-on-new-official-sonic-art-print/
    Here's the piece he made:
     
    Here's a link for a better, bigger view of it: http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/facebook/001/018/568/1a4.png
    There's a video that shows the process of it:
    I thought it looked pretty nice especially since it showed Bark, Bean, Fang, Tails Doll, Metal Knuckles, Mighty, and Ray.
    Seeing Paul Veer's name again automatically reminded me of this piece so I just wanted to share it with others in case they haven't seen it yet.

    This reminded me that we're likely to get an absolutely brilliant credits sequence and End Roll Medley to close the game on.

    Does this mean Mania is actually the finished version of Retro Sonic Nexus?

    Tom Fry who's the Art Director from PagodaWest Games (and Sonic Mania) has joined twitter. I've followed him, you should too!

    FriendBot reacted to Sean in Sonic Forces - Music Thread   
    I absolutely LOVE Park Avenue Custom, and I've had it on repeat for the last few days. It's so catchy, both of the vocals are excellent and set the tone perfectly, and the Sonic R-esque female singing made me lose my shit like you won't believe. This is the best vocal track to come out of the series in ages, and I'm not just referring to the absence of a vocal track in the past few games - I mean this is probably the catchiest motherfucker since the Adventure days. I dig.
    I'm honestly shocked that few people are impressed by the song, at best it's had a pretty lukewarm reception. I think it's fantastic.

    Its some kinds of hellish irony that the comics are stuck in an unexplained limbo while the talent for said comics is potentially serving as a lightningrod of positivity for mania and forces.
     
     
    Is this the Twilight Zone?

    I don't think it means anything tbh. This sounds more like "Yes, I would have this make sense" and not some sort of tease of his involvement in this game.
     
     
     
    i'll scream like a girl if he is actually involved tho

    Has anyone posted this link yet? It has a press release saying that Shadow has his own reasons for joining Eggman. Well, it doesn't say that directly but implies it.

    More footage, this time with the Lightning Wispon being used in the Custom GHZ. Actually looks like the lightdash that it offers could be used to great effect, if not for the fact that it's so limited by the energy gauge.

    Unleashed, Colours and Generations all had this effect and it was super annoying in the end coz it kills the bass in the music.  I really wish they didn't do it.
