Yeah, SegaSky was there. Security was called in to eject him from the building. He is now banned.

A lesson to all you naughty people trying to visit us and instead lurk our waiting room :V

I still managed to sneak out some quality memes that will promptly be leaked. You can't stop me now.

 

More importantly though, was Ben Kalough at SoA today?

The answer is

Spoiler

possibly.

You know, it didn't take me much research to find out that the "Sonic Team is two set teams" theory is BS. Can't explain right now cause on mobile, but basically: look at the credits of recent Sonic Team games on Moby Games.

The theory is likely bogus nowadays, but it's worth noting Iizuka did mention Sonic Team splitting up into different groups back in an interview prior to Generations' release:

Quote

So originally it was more or less the same team working on all the different Sonic titles, but after a few years, for various reasons, we started to delegate Sonic games to different groups of people.

And everyone in the office has their own idea of what Sonic should be, so we started to see slightly varied, slightly different directions of Sonic games.

I was conscious of this, so I’m now back with full responsibility of all things Sonic. I have control over the direction of not just Sonic Generations, but all the Sonic titles that we will develop in the future.

...how the fucking fuck do you get that...from a fortune cookie that in no relates to the quality of the game? Unless you're just joking, but with this topic, I can never be sure who is.

I'm going to assume he implied that our lack of information right now will be a better state to be in than the inevitability of us finding out that the next game will be complete and utter shit, but there is absolutely no evidence to support that whatsoever. We know absolutely nothing about this game. How the fuck can we judge the quality of a game that we haven't even seen a single bit of gameplay, or screenshots, or even a confirmed concept/idea? The only thing we MAY know is that there's a good chance it'll have Classic Sonic instead of Modern Sonic because of all the Classic Sonic merch we've been seeing. Beyond that, absolutely nothing else.

And to top it all off, this shit came from a fortune cookie. Are we seriously that thirsty for new Sonic info?

 

C'mon Aaron, I know you made that fortune. First the Chili Dog Icecream, now this? Nice try, buddy!

All you guys talking about Fortune Cookies has made me imagine Aaron in a Mandarin scenario.  

"A true story about fortune cookies. They look Chinese. They sound... Chinese. But they're actually an American invention. Which is why they're hollow, full of lies, and leave a bad taste in the mouth...  My twitter followers just destroyed another cheap Sonic knock off: Pogo Bunny.

PogoBunny--article_image.jpg Loyal fanbase, I know this must be getting frustrating, but this season of terror is drawing to a close. And don't worry. The 'Big One' is coming: your graduation."

Ruby buddy, you should totally make Mandarin videos now :-p

Sorry folks, AAUK was the boy you wanted there.

Also, the thirst is so real, you're listening to cookies. If this is what's happening in late March, June should have some hilarious routines going on. Or frightening.

I guess this is what happens when the most recent major Sonic game release turns out to be worst selling Sonic games known onto SEGA's financial reports and an entire year of no major Sonic release, the crave has pretty much been neurotic. It's bound to happen with people jumping onto any announcement to see what's next for Sonic.

People are letting their impatience cloud their judgement.

I'm all for news on the next game too, but I'm sure SEGA has good intentions behind the silence. They're not manipulating an entire fanbase because of a game they haven't even confirmed is happening.

If we had news to share, we'd share it, lol. Honestly, like I said, patience is a virtue. I know about long stretches of nothing that are somewhat boring with an odd amusement along the way. It's called driving up Florida's Turnpike from South Florida to Gainesville. I guess only fellow Floridians will appreciate that, but whatever. Just kick back and enjoy the ride. It'll be a fun one.

Definitely for all of you. Not so much for me.

I think that's a lesson for anyone that loathes what Aaron does, do something else in the meantime until an actual game announcement comes out. Getting all buttmad about it isn't helping anyone and honestly saying stuff like "Posting memes is ruining Sonic's identity, you're treating Sonic as a joke, you should get fired" is unnecessarily hostile. People really shouldn't get all worked up over video games.

I have no doubts that SEGA means the best. I just think the silence after what was not one, but two, colossally shitty games and said games doing incredibly poorly in sales is ill advised.

The comparison I can think of is where AMD is getting their asses handed to them by both nVidia and Intel, with them not really releasing any new GPU's beyond rebrands in the past couple years, and Bulldozer being an incredibly bad family of CPU's. So right now they're talking up their new CPU and GPU families as being vastly superior to what they currently have, and giving actual information in albeit small amounts.

By all means, I still firmly believe that SEGA should have shown whatever projects they're working on now, not just Sonic. Give us a reason to have faith that SEGA's learned from their mistakes, and are heading off in a good direction. We haven't really gotten that so far other than "we're sorry, and we'll promise to do better". I mean, I can believe that's the case that they'll try, but we haven't really been shown how they plan to do so.

Maybe this July, we'll finally get something substantial here.

I'm still placing my bets that we'll get the first tease by April at the earliest.

*shakes head*

May at the earliest. I'm not confident we're getting anything beyond Big's Fishing Adventure 3 and further teasing by Arron.
