  1. Sonic Forces - Japanese Story Trailer

    I'd like to think those are failed experiments, or they are like shadow clones that you never see again until later...it could be a plot point near the end if infinite desides to let out all teh other incomplete "whatevertheheck" infinite is supposed to be.
  2. I hope the cutscene where tails dies in forces gets leaked soon so everybody can stop talking about his character development/role in the story...

      Man c,mon. This isn't for real is it?

      Sure, since every other character from the modern games is in this, maybe Elise can show up and smooch him back to life.

      The funny thing is I didn't even think of how Tails comes back to life when he dies in Sonic 2/3 when I wrote this status update...

      :/

       

  3. Sonic Forces - Japanese Story Trailer

    There was a lot of crap I was saying that you ignored. You made the bold claim that Eggman doesn't want to kill sonic, and I said that was BS. Its not realistic to randomly turn off your instinctual desire to kill your arch nemesis and his friends. (A problem I have with the newer writing) If Eggman wants to "take over the world" or whatever he'll do what he can to get that, which includes killing sonic. ...That, however, DOESN'T mean that he will only kill sonic if he's actively trying to physically take over the world. He tries to take over the world over and over and over again...I think that would make someone more harsh towards their victim, not sympathetic! I'm honestly surprised you haven't brought up the ending of Sonic X, because that is actually a good example that favors your claim...which is why I don't think its that unrealistic to say that Sega didn't have that in mind when they made the character...
  4. Sonic Forces - Japanese Story Trailer

    Oh my...Eggman isn't trying to kill Sonic here don't you worry! He's just wants sonic out of his way! Forget that he's holding Amy hostage or that he thinks that he killed sonic...that doesn't mean anything! In fact let's just pretend that didn't happen Also regarding Sonic 3...if Eggman hits you and you have no rings you die, that settles it. You can't tell me "its an accident" because that is the point in putting death in a video game, I'm not sure how you can remember running away from a battle ship throwing bombs at you and not think for a second that Eggman isn't trying to kill you! For crying out loud...wanting to kill someone doesn't automatically make you some physcotic maniac! That's not what I'm saying!
  5. Sonic Forces - Japanese Story Trailer

    Look man, you might not have sonic 3 ingrained into your memory like I do but...when you fight the first boss in that game and he shoots fire at you...he's trying to freaking kill you (and tails since he's with you)! I don't see why it would make any difference whether its in the the heat of battle or not...he's the bad guy, that's what bad guys do! You could argue all you want that Eggman is only doing it to make ends meet, but to say he wouldn't kill anyone sounds much more fanficy to me. Did we all forget how much controversy THIS caused... (Plus there's that mincemeat moment...) Saying Eggman doesn't want to kill Tails or Sonic is like saying Bowser doesn't want to kill Mario or Luigi...its poposterous!
  6. Sonic Forces - Japanese Story Trailer

    Here's my source I was talking about... (Skip to 2:21 if you wanna get to the point) A game made by sega, you succeed its day and you both look at the sunset, you fail and you by yourself see your lover dead. This is very basic symbolism, its not a matter of "looking too much into it". Sometimes artists put subtle things like that in games that so happen to tie into the story. There's a handheld kirby game that ends similarly...it doesn't spell it out for you like if your a baby, but if you put 2 and 2 together you can see you get screwed over if you get the bad ending. (hence why its a bad ending...) Tails is kidnapped, Eggman's the bad guy...you don't get the fight the "true final boss" if you fail, this is the 3rd game in the series not counting Erazor...its not that complicated! Put an ending like this in any other game and people would go "welp he's dead!" What makes sonic so f**king different? (Also the CD thing would take way too long for me to explain so I won't bother...)
  7. Sonic Forces - Japanese Story Trailer

    The end of Knux's Chaotix should be enough to suffice that thought... It's obvious that Tails died there, Sega made other games at the time where the "bad ending" would be the main hero looking off in the distance at night with the person they failed to save now dead and seeing them in the stars. (Plus Sonic CD's ending implies something similar, so its not a one time only thing) I can provide a source if you want if you don't belive me, but I think back then Sega was more loose with story anyways... Think of it this way, Eggman tries to kill sonic all the time, so what makes tails any different? Yes he plays the stereotypical "villian who only knows the main characters name" thing. But tails has proven to be just as much of a threat as Sonic, there's no reason he'd ignore him if he got in his way. As far as I'm concerned he wants all of sonic's friends dead...its just sonic's always the main dude to stop him...
  8. Sonic Forces - Japanese Story Trailer

    Are you saying Eggman wouldn't kill Tails if he had the chance?
  9. Sonic Forces - Japanese Story Trailer

    Sonic's Boom persona seems to have been designed around Roger in general, ESPECIALLY in the show! So that's why people are more happy there... ...but Sonic in general? People are gonna have there complaints, especially if there used to be better options in the past...
  10. I never cared about game physics.

    I honestly don't see why you couldn't be a fan of both? I really don't like the direction of Unleashed, I feel its very "un-sonic" like. But that doesn't mean I think its a bad game, for all its faults it gets stuff right, really right sometimes. I mean...this seems controdictory like...I don't think there exists many people who will tell you that Sonic 4 has an amazing story or anything. The reality is that Sonic 4 isn't made for anyone in mind, the only way you'd like it is if you didn't care about its flaws entirely (low standards) or if you actively TRIED to like it...for whatever reason... I'm sorry if I missed it cause I just skimmed a lot of what you said but...what was the point of this topic again? Every fandom has fans saying dumb stuff sometimes, just ignore it and move on.
  11. I never cared about game physics.

    You just lost all credibility with that sentence. If you think the differences between Brawl and Melee were only "slight" then you have no idea what you are talking about! The people who complained about that crap are the people who actually sat down and played melee for more than 60 hours... If you don't care about the physics, then you don't care about the game, because the physics ARE THE GAME! Thinking otherwise is just a sign of lower standards, if it doesn't bother you that's one thing, but saying it doesn't matter is entirely different. ... When you have to resort to saying "Its not that bad", thats why people don't take your opinion seriously. That mindset is how mediocre games get a pass, nobody wants to play mediocre games in their right mind...especiallly if its tied to a franchise that used to be great one of the best in existence!
  12. Sonic Shattered Realities

    I'm going to have to agree with everyone else here, I've seen this sad story happen time and time again, both in and outside of sonic...(99% of fangames that get announced don't get finished lol) And yes, its too ambitious for its own good. Untill you show actual gameplay, I have no reason to believe that this will be any better than Mushroom Kingdom Fusion...the prime example of what happens when you just throw ideas at the wall and don't have any focus! :/
  13. Me in 2013: OMG Sonic fans are sooo picky about everything, can't you guys be thankful for ANYTHING?!

    Me in 2017 (now): Does this fanbase have ANY standards or do you guys just eat up anything that has sonic in it without EVER questioning it?!

    (The last bit is more aimed at people outside of here btw lol)

    1. McGroose

      McGroose

      Lol was that an evolution or devolution of character?

    2. Alienrun

      Alienrun

      I'd say its an evolution. I was much more of a "Sonic Fanboy" back when I was a teen so my scope of understanding other games outside of sonic was much more limited (even if Sonic wasn't my favorite franchise at the time.)

      Suffice it to say its a lot easier for me to relate to people who blindly hate sonic rather than people who blindly like it (like I used to), I may not agree...but I can see where they are coming from. :/

  14. So I can't be the only one who noticed this but (mania spoilers ahead...)

    Spoiler

    zone from Sonic 1

    zones from Sonic 2 and CD respectively

    3 zones from Sonic 3

    4 zones from Sonic Mania

    With this info in mind you could argue (mainly from Izukia's perspective) that Mania has more new content that old lol :P

    You guys think this is intentional or just a coincedence?

      I predicted this way before mania was released nobody paid attention lmao.

      I think it was intentional.

    2. Sean

      Sean

      Actually there's only 1 zone from Sonic 3 and K zones from Sonic & Knuckles

      Alienrun

      @Sean Obviously I meant Sonic 3 as a whole. (and of course they went out of there way to include at least 1 zone from sonic 3 by itself...)

    6. Sean

      Sean

      1 + K doesn't equal 3 though

      Well if you put it that way...

      3 as a whole still has 3 zones, that's indesputable.

      The problem comes when questioning how many zones K has?

      Since K is not a number its value isn't as well defined like 1, 2, and CD is (CD equals 2 since its on the same spectrum as 2 as there are 2 games with 2 zones + CD is 2 letters...) thus meaning K could equate to a number of different values when compared to 3. 

      We do know that K must come after 3, hence why its called Sonic 3&K and not K&3 or KKK.

      However the zones in Mania do not have a set order, as half of K actually takes place before 3 and the second half after 3. Thus K is not limited to simply being > 3 in this context. (Though that further brings into question how you determined how 1 + K < 3!) Likewise its possible that since 3&K are almost always coexist with each other that K could refer to 3's levels and 3 could refer to K AND 3's levels. (Since 3 comes before K you could argue that it has priority over K since one is more known than the other.)

      To put it more simply K is not a value but rather a function that requires 3 to properly have any meaning...

      So with all that being said its entirely possible that 3 (or 1) plus K equals 3...possible even more if you want to turn this around and say that that's the problem...Mania also has an extra act dedicated to the personification of K itself, thus further justifing that K > 1 or that K = 2

      You can also factor in that the Mania Genesis Kart doesn't fit on an actual Genesis, but does fit on a 32X, which has K Chaotix on it, thus multiplying the result by 32...which also so happens to the number of blue sphere levels in Mania...which also happen to take inspiration from K Chaotix for the Special Stages...which in turn was taken from CD, another "function" like K

      TL;DR 3K are inseperable and are the same, 3 is the value and K is the function, but both are the same...

      Alternate TL;DR 1 + K = 3 :P

      K is K, not 2

    12. Alienrun

      Alienrun

      K then...

      How bout we say 3K has 3K zones? Hmm? :/

    13. Sean

      Sean

      no
