Wasn't ATGames who asked me to keep it shush, but I believe it is their product.

I don't know if it's just the basic model or if this is the SD card model.

Eh, if its just a re-release of the first models then no thanks. I heard they were some pretty bad faults with them, sound issues and composite cables in 2016 being the most ones that irk me.

But if these are improved models with their faults fixed then maybe. Atgames have got to step up their game now that Nintendo is smashing onto the P&P market.

I'm hoping that we can find out the answer to that, but that's a conversation for another time.

Keep us updated on them, may be worth getting if Atgames listened to the complaints from the first models.

Holy shit, this social media stuff's really getting me pumped for tonight. I really hope something doesn't randomly come up preventing me from watching the stream.

Your mentioning of "social media" is making me want to plug an article of mine that just went up. :P

I'll do that in a more appropriate topic, though.

There's only one way they'll disappoint me tonight; if we only get a 2D title. If we get say, a 3D and a 2D title I'll be fine, but 2D just isn't what I'm after by now. 

What if it looks really good though? What you feel is up to you, but personally, if they drop something that looks like Classic Sonic levels in Gens, I will cry.
fun with formatting for emphasis

With all the classic style Sonic artwork being used via social media, and much of the merch shown so far being classic themed I'm expecting something classic related. Either classic style Sonic being used in the main game again somehow, like Generations, or the announcement of two games, one modern style and one classic. Tho splitting attention between two products always worries me.

Thing is, I never go back to the Classic levels in Generations, I always go back to Modern's. I want SEGA to push themselves and make another good 3D Sonic, to stand with Generations and the like. 

I dunno, I just don't want 2D and nothing but. At least Generations was varied.

In my opinion, I think we need to see another 3D game because SEGA too often falls back on the nostalgia of 2D Sonic and Green Hill Zone in hopes that we consider that good. This didn't really work with Sonic 4, because at the end of the day, quality and at least a LITTLE sense of innovation is what matters.

I want an ambitious Sonic game that pushes the new tech it will be on. I want something big and expansive. And of course, fun and polished. And I think 3D Sonic is the better medium for that.

It's not that I have a preference for 3D Sonic, I like both equally. But like, we haven't had a true 3D Sonic game in ages. Even the Boost trilogy and Lost World had quite a bit of 2D implemented into their levels. And IMO, with the exception of Unleashed, the way 2D was handled actually ended up making the game worse in some way. Colours had way too much 2D, and the 3D sections were bland drift and quick step mini-games most of the time, there to pad out levels. Classic Sonic was awesome in Generations, but why does Modern Sonic still have 2D sections? He feels MUCH better in 3D and the 3D level design in Generations was excellent. And Lost World's 2D sections were blocky once again and Sonic felt like he had his speed capped to something lower in 2D.

If they do make a pure 2D game, I'll still get it and most likely enjoy it assuming it isn't another Sonic 4, but I think a really good 3D game could do much more for the franchise's reputation. And honestly, I have had enough 2D for now, personally. Plenty of fan games and ROM hacks for me to catch up on too if I need that.

First Look at Sonic in LEGO Dimensions!

I still think Lego Sonic looks like a minor abomination, but there's only so much you can do with the (humanoid?) Lego base for a non-human character. I still wonder what the gameplay will be like or how well the character will be animated. It's kind of hard imagining Roger Craig Smith's voice coming from that thing.

Yes..!    It would be unexpected for them to back all the way into 2d.

I think they may be ready to return to the main plotline of the series whether it is something similar to an Adventure title or not!  trying to do it too soon would not have been a good idea specifically relating to what you have written: that by waiting long enough they will be able to do as many new, wonderful ideas in the game as with every new big step/evolution in the series so far.  that seems like what is coming !!

Kind of makes me wonder what Lego Sonic: the Original Trilogy would be like.

Edit: More like Lego Sonic: the Original Trilogy & Knuckles!

LEGO Sonic Wars: The Original Trilogy - featuring levels from Sonic 1, 2, and 3.

LEGO Sonic Wars: The Advance Trilogy - featuring levels from the Advance series

 

I don't know, there's not a lot of trilogies in Sonic, unless you did Adventure 2, Heroes, and Shadow as a Shadow Rising trilogy with Adventure 1 as a prequel bonus level.

Whatever we see of this tonight is going to be interesting, and probably be what makes or breaks my purchase decision. Probably.
