    Sonic Advance 2 has a really, really fantastic soundtrack. They really went all out on creating music to fit the fastest Sonic game ever made (at the time). All the tracks have a high tempo and a strong bass line that doesn't quit for a second. They got the most out of the GBA soundchip. There's just so much energy. It's a ridiculously huge step up from Advance 1.

    The whole Toys for Bob / CoD situation is so messy. Brilliant artists, art directors, writers, all left after Activision's decision to turn the studio into a CoD support team. According to the professionals themselves, they didn't got fired, but simply left in good terms. I admit I would too if I had their talent. Generic shit like Cod doesn't deserve these guys. Nothing against the ones who stayed at TFB, bills have to be paid and sometimes you don't have the luxury to just quit, but I still can't digest what happened. Just seeing their logo with the CoD motif makes me sick.

    I finally played through Colors again, I did the Egg Shuttle and all the Game Land levels (this means I didn't watch the cutscenes).
    The game is solid, and some parts are interesting, there are a few very creative moments... though, while I don't mind the "blocky platforming", there are some boring moments too... also, the physics are somewhat decent but the controls are often unresponsive, it does not really play well when you want to push the gameplay to the limits (precise timing). I hate that when you perform a double jump, the horizontal momentum is lost.
    Artistically it's perfect. It's charming despite being on a weak hardware, and the environments are all surreal and colorful like in the classic games... it's the only modern game that managed to achieve this, not even the reimagined versions of classic zones in Generations have that surreal feel that Sonic Colors zones have. Musics are great too.
    The original Egg Nega Wisp is still the best Egg Nega Wisp boss of all the modern games IMO, the fight is epic and I like the design of the mech.
    6 acts + boss is way too much, it gets boring after a while... also it would have been better if all the bosses were original instead of being used twice with alterations.
    Objectively, it's one of the most polished 3D Sonic games along with Generations (3D in the sense that it uses polygons and 3D physics, even if it's mostly 2D), but compared to other high quality games it's still a bit rough, and the gameplay is too much simplified (quick step, homing attack chains etc. in some parts the game almost plays itself and it requires minimum input).
    It's an ok game, but in general it's not an high quality game, I would rate it 75/100 at best. The art direction though... I don't mean the story, I mean the setting, environments, musics, colors and so... really that's the direction I would like the modern series to take from now onward.

    I for one will always prefer "Shonen Sonic" to the "Saturday Morning Sonic" we've had for the past decade. I do wonder what new direction we may get now that we're in a new decade of Sonic, though...

    Just finished the Balan Wonderworld novel. This. THIS is what the game should have been. I'll post my full thoughts in the Balan thread at some point, but for now I'll just say if you see potential in the game's story and characters and are sad that the actual game didn't realize any of it, the book is VERY satisfying. I'd highly recommend it.

    I really wouldn't mind at all if the humans in Sonic games looked like those characters in Balan Wonderworld. I have never quite understood why some people are so against the idea of humans in Sonic games. 
    Sana for one example:
    Or Leo for another:
    They would just fit in so well. And that's really no surprise considering who designed all of these characters in the first place. 
    I always liked the Pixar-esque humans of Unleashed and certainly wouldn't mind seeing those designs again. This style blends in with the design is Sonic and the other anthro characters even better though. It leans more into a Japanese, anime look. SA1 had verrrry 90s anime human designs.
    Anything other than the hyper realistic humans of 06, basically. And SA2 and Shadow didn't do a particularly good job of it either. If they look too realistic like in those games, then off course is going to feel weird to a lot of the audience. But if the humans are designed to match the anthros, everything would blend together seamlessly. And the humans can be designed as creatively and stylised as the Sonic and the rest. The Balan human characters would be pretty perfect, I think. The only problem with the Balan characters is poor animation in 3D, where they all have the 'mascot suit' and 'grapefruit hands' problem from half-arsed mo-cap.

    10/10 level design and engaging gameplay. Creative use of all of Sonic's unique abilities to create an interesting platformer with high speed gameplay. Can't wait for this in HD

    I’m on Episode 4 of Tropical Rouge Precure and I’m honestly stunned at how badly Laura screwed the pooch with staying hidden during this one scene in a museum’s mermaid exhibit. If she just got back into that thing that she hides in, this wouldn’t be an issue.

    Hi everyone!
    I haven't posted much music news lately. Mostly I've been doing things for Sonic Legacy, and a few other secret projects, as well as just waiting for others to be able to move on. 
    I currently have 4 projects finished and ready to be released in due time, and I'm working on a few other projects currently in progress, some I can talk about but some secret ones too.
    I'd love to say that big things are happening, but I'm still ashamed that I don't have a single publication for 2021 yet. And in fact I feel like things are slowing down drastically. But stay tuned, hopefully sooner than later I'll be able to do something.
