Though I am curious about what we'll see.

Yes!  45 minutes for an official showcase of two games may include lots of new gameplay footage, and where it is official as this , there will at least be direct screen audio and video!  I would think that various media outlets may also be able to have their own direct recordings from the games themselves, but this will most likely be quite good!!

Even if they don't, you better believe Sonic fans will be screen capturing the footage for themselves. lol

If I've got the time zones right, it looks like this YouTube stream will take place after Microsoft's conference. Which doesn't exclude the possibility that our first look at any Sonic games this E3 will still come from Microsoft's conference. Like having a new trailer or two during the Microsoft conference and then making the YouTube session more of a hands on playthrough of each Sonic game. But that still remains to be seen.

Personally though, I won't be able to watch the Microsoft conference live. So I'll leave it up to someone else to let everyone know if Sonic makes an appearance then.

Microsoft's is tomorrow, but the Sonic stream is on Monday. I meant to bold that part, so that's my bad.

Well that was disappointing....

 

But they did say they were working on a lot for E3, so i'm assuming tomorrow there might be something?

Pretty sure we'll get more tomorrow. E3 hasn't officially opened yet. The E3 demo, going by previews, looks to have a total of 7 zones.

Yes; it turned out to be a streamlined segment within a larger 45 minute block; but it was quite positive and fun; somehow I didn't expect the presenter to just walk over to a large screen with Aaron waiting for him there!  

I'm not a console or PC gamer, at least in terms of most modern games' specifications, unfortunately, but I am beginning to become excited about Forces anyway. It certainly helps when Aaron presents it, rather than when it is gameplay footage with no human context. 

This specific short playthrough helped click/suddenly make much more sense for me why the game is in three styles and how the full game might actually feel to play through, and why it is exciting for Sonic Team to be creating this.  It does sound like they may already also be working on something for 2021?  Will this E3 come and go without any more distant future new games being teased I wonder? :o^_^

Knuckles travelling through Chemical Plant is some of the best revealed footage yet, it does show, I think, most clearly, how all of the classic games' zone layout styles are being combined into a format that works exceptionally well to sort of fill in what potential was "missing" for additional depth to a zone layout in each of the original games; of course often due to tileset and then-current game code limitations.  It is almost as though each of the earlier games' differences in zone layout were like a puzzle waiting to be solved by combining them!
