Sonic Forces E3 Trailer "The Next Generations" *Huge Spoilers in OP

If Classic Sonic is no longer Modern Sonic's younger self but rather a parallel Sonic from another dimension, Generations cannot be canon to Forces and vice-versa.

.......Actually it very easily can. Just say that this is a different classic Sonic which the game has done so far from what we've seen.

Honestly, it's something you kinda have to go out of your way to make non-canon when the game itself is giving reason enough for Generations to still be canon.

And surprisingly, it might go in to fit with what Iizuka said about this not being Generations 2.

Which might eventually lead to the shock and revelation: "OH shit! Maybe Iizuka wasn't lying through his teeth the whole time like some claim he was!?"

I suppose another possibility is that Classic Sonic in Forces and Generations is still a past version of Sonic, just not the main series Sonic. His coming from an alternate timeline would at least explain why Modern doesn't seem to recall the events of Generations or Forces.

So we're getting the Classic Sonic from Sonic Underground?

Can't wait to attack with those sick beats yo.

Guys still impress me as you try to give some sense of coherence to the sonic lore, Sonic team can throw any stupidity without context and still be canon in the games discuss that does not make much sense from my point of view.

I agree , this series doesn't take itself too seriously (anymore) , its essentially a cartoon. its for fun and that's the most important thing above all else.

Being a cartoon and for fun doesn't excuse being bad. Especially when there are fun cartoons with kids with lore now. People enjoy different things for different reasons, and " its a cartoon" isn't an excuse for things people don't like about something.

I will say things like Stevern Universe and Regular Show definitely show how out of touch Sonic Team are with western demands be it from kids, teens, or adults.

But hey, who cares about analyzing, just go by sales and keep playing guessing games with what people want instead of making the effort to properly research.

It hasn't even been fun. You know what's fun? High stakes. Action. Drama. Those are fun. Not Sonic going on a 30 second ramble about how funny he is to a robot that doesn't even respond.

Personally, I've never played a Sonic game for plot the only thing that matters to me is the gameplay when I think of a story driven games the last thing that comes to mind is Sonic, I'm not saying that they can not criticize writing in the Sonic games.

But Iizuka and the rest of Sonic Team never cared too much in writing or give sense to sonic lore maybe in Forces we could find out that Robotnik is Sonic father.

Well... That's one comment you could type to start a savage warpath...

Though granted there's nothing wrong with that stance, it's just one that often gets the writer impaled.

Old manual stuff, and StC canon. Terrible too, I might add. Completely undermines the idea that Eggman is evil because he chooses to be, replacing it with some "oh the accident TURNED him evil and made him change his name" stupidity. Also, brown Sonic with frizzy quills never looked very appealing.

As for Forces' story, I think it's safe to say they don't care about cross-game continuity that much, but then that's only really because back when they did, it was either in plots so simple that it was hard to really mess up much (classic games), or in scenarios so offensively stupid it couldn't be appreciated (anything concerning Shadow).

Ultimately if you ask me, it's not about whether the plot is conventionally well structured or written, because it never has been, rather it's more about the characters having character (read: the personalities they're supposed to have) and things not getting boring. And with the way things are looking, I have some confidence that they'll deliver on that.

The story of any sonic game has never been an important factor for me , the gameplay and levels are what makes a sonic game a sonic game. nobody was concerned about any exposition in the original classic titles and they're very much loved games.

The problem with sonic games when they DO try a complex story is they just have  not got it quite right in terms of " oh my god I must find out what happens next" and characterisation and tone.

I think the best written story in terms of context and style was 'Colours'. Some pretty clever jokes and well acted dialogue. It wasn't overblown and complex and it worked for that game.

Generations took the minimalist approach on story and focused entirely on what that game was for - Nostalgia.

Lost world tried to do what colours got right and didn't quite pull it off but I really enjoyed the levels in that game regardless.

Maybe Forces will get the balance right? we shall see.......

Found a video that shows where all the red star rings are in the Modern Sonic stage.

 

Oh, I was wondering where the fourth Star Ring was. That was the only one that I haven't seen in any other footage.

I wonder what they unlock in this game. I'm honestly hoping that if it's Chaos Emeralds again it works like Colours where collecting a certain number unlocks bonus levels ala Game Land that you beat to get the Emeralds. It was like, exactly what I want in Special Stages in all but name (i.e. the standard gameplay instead of a sudden gameplay shift).

I kinda hope it's not that. It wasn't fun in Colors and it was even LESS fun in Lost World. The fact that we're probably getting a big dumb super final boss means it'd either be story-related emerald collection, or stupid Heroes bullshit where you gotta replay a bunch of stuff just to see the proper ending.

Plus, I liked getting OST remixes and concept art in Generations.

 

On a side note, do you think the avatar character is gonna get a super form? Or maybe, just spitballing, each playstyle has it's own final boss?

I think it's more likely that the Avatar will fight the penultimate boss (like the Werehog fighting the Egg Dragoon in Unleashed) while the final boss is fought as both Classic and Modern Super Sonic, assuming there even is a Super boss fight. (Heck, there might even be more parallels to Unleashed's endgame if they decide to have the Avatar fight Eggman, while Sonic fights Infinite or something.)

While I would hate to see the CaC get a Super Form, I think I could at the very least tolerate it if they went the Heroes route and have them in a Super Bubble. Particularly so if they were to leech that bubble from Super Sonic and not from the emeralds themselves.

They were smart enough not to give the OC's any outlandish super powers, and instead cleverly opted to design the wispon to give them more of a sense of power through gadgets. I gotta think the same will hold true for the chaos emeralds.

 

On a side note, I hope we get a little lure surrounding the development of the wispon. Did Tails build it? Does more than one guy use them? ect.

I just had a thought! 

So far eggman has brought back:5956b6b0a575f_download(6).jpg.dea8c661ccb9bc44c7a28a07feebad2b.jpg

Death egg robots.

5956b6f3db644_download(7).jpg.0ce3589e4b13df59e9e86607cdfd6ccf.jpg

Egg dragoon.

But what's the one mech that can knock super sonic out of his super form?5956b780b78e2_download(2).png.e03349757f37e62369972e98d59e4630.png

Yes. This badass right here. Bonus points for being smaller than his other mecha but just as lethal. Eggman whips a steroid version of this out and both super Sonics are toast. He gets them into his tight grip and you, the original character must save your heroes!

*But if it can do that to two super Sonics, what'll you think it'll do to original the character?*

You either collect at least 50 rings to give to the two sonics or face off with the mech yourself.

 

 

 

...Oh I forgot about infinite...

I don't know why I thought of this but...

What if we are the villains, Shadow has his own reason to fight to save the world, Chaos appears in situations where there is destruction, etc. (And fight back the one who caused that) and Zavok betrayed Eggman but now He's on Eggman's side, Metal Sonic too, in Sonic Heroes. If brainwashing was the reason, then why? It adds nothing to the story. So what if we (Sonic, Sonic and Creativity) are the villains who indirectly caused this, maybe with time travel, or multiverse.

Something that I'm sure that won't be explained is Silver's existence in the game. If they explain that... kudos, but I doubt it.

Also I really don't want them to be brainwashed  and specially not brought from the past. When Shadow and Chaos have their realization moment, they will have to pass through the same process again? I really want something new.

The game rating is PEGI 12 right? Unless there are real guns in the game, I think that's a sign for a more complex story. Again if that's a good thing or bad thing we have too see.

I don't care the reason behind it right now. I've so little faith in Sonic Team to pull this off properly. Everything they've done here with this game is wrong, so I've not got any reason to believe that the story is going to be different.
