Well he did make the forest into a casino. That seems like something kind of glitzy. 

I mean, kinda. But Sonic's world is already filled with similar casinos that aren't owned by Eggman, and this one still didn't scream "Eggman" visually. There wasn't really much in the way of Eggman imagery associated with it.

It just felt like another Casino Night or Casino Park.

I wouldn't be surprised if the writers had the (scrapped) idea of an emotional cutscene where Tails blames himself for not doing anything useful (with or without Sonic). Tails admits to Sonic that he has become useless by depending on Sonic so much, to the point where the 8-year-old can't do ANYTHING without him.

After owing Sonic a tearful apology, Tails vows to do everything in his power to help fight Eggman's forces and take back what was taken away from the people.

That's just me saying what that cutscene might have been.

Yeah I know, and the whole thing seemed odd for a villain to do. It was just a way for them to merge common level themes

That´s it. Plus we were shown in the series that every Eggman-built thing feels somehow hot, often creepy and like crazy.

Everything except Green Hill (slightly) and the last level doesn´t look like it. Kind of reminds me Sonic 1 structure of levels more than "Oh, Eggman´s ruling the world."

Nah that displeases Sonic Team. Tails is smart, therefore law of character stereotype/archetype says he must be weak to compensate. Flip it in reverse for Knuckles (Well he ain't dumb in this game, but has been treated as such for a while).

There's a reason I say Tails has pretty much become Jimmy Neutron. No really it's surprising how he is now more like him.

I'm not saying that Tails should have Knuckles' strength or all of Sonic's bravery. That wasn't my intention. Remember what he said in Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure 2? Remember his theme song saying that he wants to be brave, strong, independent and reliable? That's what I was going for.

But thank you for your honest opinion. :-)

I was just making a joke from what you wrote ala my belief they do not give two shits about Tails. They try to make him unlikable and useless. He deserves so much better than the crap material they've shit into a bag and handed him....after setting said bag of shit on fire......and a note attached that says nerd on it.

Now, I'm curious. If you fail the triple boost prompt, would it affect the game's ending at all? Like would it give you a bad ending? That'd be neat. But this is Sonic Team...

I dunno, I felt pretty bad for him. It just bothers me how they're still acting like he can't be a fighter, it would've been nice to see that again and could have made his "arc" (if you can call it that) in this game more meaningful. He goes off on his own instead of joining the Resistance but is still trying to make a difference, that sort of thing.

Never happened clearly according to them. I mean Sonic X literally skipped over his biggest SA1 moment...so maybe they are giving those games the same treatment.....except for Big the Cat.....cause memes.

And in every game where he's a playable character. The biggest problem with the utilization of characters that aren't Sonic.. is that every single one of these characters were made to be playable. And their solutions to justifying them not being with Sonic are usually dumb. There's no good reason Tails isn't in stages with Sonic in Unleashed. There's no good reason Tails isn't in stages with Sonic in Colors (or in DS where everyone sends him to do stuff for them for some reason). Or Generations with the Classic Tails that should be fresh from being player 2 in the classics. Or Lost World with Amy and Knuckles who are doing literal nothing but babysitting animals in one spot.

Sure there is...........because they're not Sonic.....the criteria is Sonic. I hear Sonic Team may drop the team part of their name for just Sonic.....created by the Sonic for the Sonic.

That's not true! It's not just Sonic. They also let awkward Sonic recolors with no defined personality have important time to shine.

You know, it just occurred to me.

In the Avatar's Green Hill stage, they're being chased by a land-roving robot. And the dialogue says "We can't let this thing get to the Chemical Plant!"

But, uh...

Green Hill is on South Island. Chemical Plant is on Westside Island. Was this robot walker going to run across the ocean?

Or Eggman had some sort of ship to carry it between islands. But running across the ocean seems good for trampling underwater settlements.
