  1. I mean, I don't just buy every sonic game that pops out. I didn't buy lost world and I have never gotten any of the boom games. I throw lots more support over the games I love and want to see more of. I bought mania on pc and my switch just came in the mail yesterday and I'm gonna buy it again on that. I bought all of the mobile sonic remasters several times, even have gotten a friend or two to get at least one, I bought sonic adventure like 3 or 4 different times for different systems. If (when, I won't kid myself) I get this game, I'll wait for it to go on a steam sale or something. It's definitely not something I plan to pay full price for. There are things this game's doing that I like. Multiple characters playing a seemingly active role in the story, Shadow playable, uhh that might be it. But that along with getting the game legitimately and I'm looking forward to all the modding that will happen. I can also say with some confidence that I'll probably like this game more than lost world. Yeah, I'm totally okay shelling out a few dollars for this despite my problems with it.
  2. It's one of those things where I'm so invested in the franchise I tend to play the main series games out of this "obligation" I have. Kind of like why I follow dragon ball super. Also, I think having a Shadow side story and having him playable again finally was a big step for sonic team. Part of me hopes that if I show support now they'll put their colorful cast of characters to good use and have them playable again. Somehow someway. There's no way we can control what sonic team does or doesn't do, so the best I can do is show some support when I can, cross my fingers and hope eventually they hand pick certain aspects of games I'd enjoy. I'm just a loser with a soft spot for sonic. Regardless of how I feel about the games, I still get excited to sit down and play a new main series sonic game.

    Oh man I just had a thought, what if they got Everett Bradly back for a remix of Throw It All Away, the best Shadow theme song 😩👏👏

    No way, Rhythm and Balance was one of my top favorite Sonic tracks ever. This is so awesome!
  5. This game has made me really unhappy. As a huge fan of the Adventure games, I get a huge kick out of the grittier, more serious grimdark stories this series has to offer. We haven't had anything like that in such a long time. During the initial teaser trailer I was extremely excited to know the next mainline sonic game we've waited 4 long years for was going to be more like that. I couldn't even put into words how excited I was. The part when the trailer said "even heroes need help" I swear I thought Tails or Shadow or something was gonna show up and I was ready to freak out, but it was classic Sonic once again. From that moment I knew at best I'll like this game about as much as I did generations, only caring for the boost stages and really only playing through the classic ones for completions sake. Still my hopes were high and I was really happy with the way the tone was seemingly set for the game. Fast forward the custom avatar character was rumored, I disregarded it and did not for a second believe it was true. That's too ridiculous, even Sonic Team would never stoop so low. They stooped so low. I'm still really upset because some story bits sound so cool to me. Like Sonic being beaten and needing to be rescued. It'd be a perfect opportunity to play as Knuckles or Shadow or Espio, instead we get to play as some ugly no name "rookie" who doesn't fit in, looks horribly unfun and downright broken at times to play. Plus a neutered classic Sonic who just feels dead wrong to the point of reaching uncanny valley. Let's kidnap Sonic and have a creature and another sonic rescue him. What a great tale. Though maybe it's a blessing in disguise characters I actually like aren't playable because they'd end up a broken mess too. Modern Sonic looks like he's taken a huge step back. Normally he'd be the icing on the cake for me. Here though the hallways and stiff looking controls are really becoming unbearable. The level design (for every character) is inexcusable. It's awful. I don't care what anyone says about the boost gameplay, whether it's shallow or uninteresting or brainless or whatever, to me (and surely many others) fast paced twitch response gameplay is thrilling. I loved it the moment I first played unleashed, and I probably always will. I'd always go back and try to improve times, I'd even make little challenges like getting as many rings as possible, defeating all enemies, even getting every ring in all the hub levels as fast as I can in unleashed. It's the best. The level design and game feel is really what's killing this game. No backtracking, invisible walls that look like they'll put sonic colors to shame, no drifting, no jumping out of a slide attack, terrible unnatural whiplash acceleration, double jump worse than colors and lost world. There's no fun to be had here. Still, as bad as it looks I'm still extremely happy there's a mini Shadow story, and he's playable in all of Sonic's levels for no good reason other than it's a neat little extra they threw in (something which should've been standard from the start). I'm definitely one of the more versatile fans in terms of what I can stomach. I tend to be able to pull at least a little enjoyment out of most games this series puts out, so I'll probably continue supporting in some ways for as long as I can manage. But this game has really brought me down more than any other sonic game ever has before. Sonic team will probably never try and tell a more serious story again after this. I know they'll just go back to sonic laughing at how lame baldy nosehair is. I'll never get exactly what I want. It's just a fantasy. Sonic team isn't capable of telling a story I want anymore. They are trying with this one and it's embarrassing. Down to Infinite's character, the music, the avatar. Just ugh. Maybe I'm just grown up now. Maybe that's the worst part of all. In short, I probably will support this game. Really if only for the modding that will inevitably happen down the road. Bringing in some new levels that are maybe less claustrophobic, maybe they'll find a way to import levels from generations or colors or something. That'd be really neat.
  6. Been away for awhile only to come back to the news sonic mania was delayed on pc :(

    1. StrickerXmas


      Yep... needless to say that half the forum has now gone dark seeing as the PC version was the only version a lot of people could get.

  7. Oof. I am blown away. These special stages are making me feel some type of way. I really love what they did here. At a loss for words.
  8. Had a dream other characters were playable in Forces

    1. Bowbowis


      We all had that dream.

  9. Well gang, it seems things are finally beginning to look up :^)
  10. I don't like that Shadow is a villain again =( Chaos is back at least so that's cool
  11. My lord the classic gameplay looks dreadful. I don't like the custom character either, like at all. Modern Sonic looks nice though. The way I'm feeling at the moment, let Sonic Team just keep doing modern Sonic. Over and over and over and over. It doesn't matter anymore. Make the game 20 minutes long if you have to I don't care (not likely though they'd probably force in some second wheel garbage instead of just making Tails or Knuckles playable). Just let them keep doing that. It's all they're good for atm. Adventure fans tend to be the ones most willing to bend, so I'm alright with completely giving up hope there will ever be full 3d gameplay akin to that ever again. It's fun to just blast around without thinking and avoiding obstacles at high speed. It's a different kind of fun to what I'd prefer Sonic be, but I still enjoy it. Especially taking character mods into account. Isn't that fucking sad though. Look at the custom characters level. Still either blocky 2d platforming or a hallway with quickstep sections. Can you imagine if instead of this trash We got to play as Blaze or Knuckles or Shadow or Espio or some shit? They're sticking to the same level design philosophy as Modern Sonic anyway, so why are they trying so hard to avoid characters people actually like? Whatever. Keep Taxman and Stealth and continue to make 2D games forever. They don't even have to stick with pixel games just let them keep doing their thing. And allow Sonic Team to at least keep making modern Sonic as he is and release it on PC so people can mod it. Honestly just stick with these 2 things and I think we'll be alright.
  12. I draw sometimes =)

    Old pic I had never finished that I completely forgot about until I was looking through some of my files tonight. I can't even remember when I did this. I think like 2 or 3 years ago. I always figured these two would get along really well =)
  13. Something I've always wanted from this series is more unique character attributes. I'm not really a fan of every character under the sun becoming a ball especially if they're based on an animal that isn't suited for rolling. It's why I love Espio's classic whirl jump and whirl-dash as his variant of spinning moves. 

    I think it'd be cool if someone like Tails couldn't break through walls by rolling and he just kind of softly bounced off. Having to resort to other paths more suited for him by flying. 

    Idk just spit balling ideas while I'm at work.

    1. Osmium


      I sorta feel like with a character like Tails it's not so much dependent on sharpness but speed. He can still break stuff because he's going a incredible speeds and has high momentum. He probably shouldn't be able to cut through things like Sonic though, just bust through them, more like a punch. 

  14. The more I think about Forces the more aggravated I get. I want to play as Espio already. Not some stupid ass custom character that's going to look and feel like shit no matter what.

    Excited for the chance at character mods at least. Sigh

    1. Nepenthe



      Who is Epsio?

      We don't know an Espio.

      But you CAN play as Buddy! And Classic Sonic too!

  15. I know fun is subjective, but how anyone can enjoy sonic 2's special stages is beyond belief.

    1. Yeow

      that music is damn funky.

      I'd appreciate them more if they didn't reuse them every game.

      Sonic 2 special stages is boss

    5. Ferno


      the main reason i like it is due to how they pulled it off on 16 bit hardware

      it doesn't have the same charm to it in any of the polygonal remakes that've come from future games
