Alright, so we've been waiting for a new main line Sonic the Hedgehog game for over two years now, with teasers and hints and everything. There was so much Classic Sonic that I was convinced we'd get full remasters of the first three games and CD. And then we got Sonic 06 plus Sonic Generations times edge plus drama, and I began tying a noose. Do these idiots not realize that this is a series about a giant blue hedgehog that goes really fast fighting a fat scientist named Dr. Eggman. If I wanted over dramatic edgy crap, I'd read the comics. If those retards take the, "oh no end of the world again hurdee dur" approach with this, I'm going to destroy every Sonic game I own that isn't the classics, the portable games, Colours, or Generations.

I dunno, theres a bunch of people who expect different things from sonic right now...

But the comics had it right for the longest time, lots of people have come along to the company to do some sonic related work and the only stuff that seems out of place was sonic X and the boom series, some of it wasnt very good quality though...

If you want to be a sonic fan, then patience is a pretty key skill at the moment.

 

Its not super common for Sega to go a whole console gen without a good game though! Thats a good reason to stick with sega. Story telling and quality character writing/writing in general is more important than original idea's, of course with the classic stuff where there isnt much story its a bit diff.

 

I have yet to see anything of the new sonic game tho.

Alright, after watching the trailer a few more times, I've realized that it definitely isn't that bad. MSonic and CSonic both still have a cocky attitude, and they're still having fun throughout this. Hey, if I fucked up at the end of my second adventure and my arch nemesis made an entire line of mass-produced, giant versions of the one robot I couldn't beat, I'd be pissed as hell too. Not to mention CSonic boosts at the end. It'll probably fit right in with the Sonic Cycle, but we'll always have Mania.

I'm not too excited for 2017 game, but I am on Sonic Mania. There's nothing you know on Sonic 17 that warrants a review or criticism yet, just wait. It's more important to talk about how there's no NiGHTS.

I dont have a lot to say myself, but I dont really know if there is a point in having 2 sonics in a game.

It just seems... silly.

 

Well as long as they come along with a good game that doesnt feel very small from expenses or stuff and doesnt chug along autonomously like so much of the Wii/Wii U Sonic stuff has.

I guess the important thing here is that they don't waste our time. Story lines that peter out without much point or impact = wasting time. Stretchy werewolf levels (new gimmicks) consuming large portions of the game = wasting our time (mainly if the gimmick is pretty meh, tread carefully). Games where the hero doesn't feel threatened by villain/ villain cant be taken seriously = WT

Hey, replace that Werewolf with Knuckles and you know people would love it.

Maybe, but even knuckles (in the past) is more about mixing it up a little rather than relying on gimmick, knuckles doesn't have to fight majority of enemies in a level. Also even knuckles would be faster and more entertaining to play as than werewolf sonic. 3 mcguffins/end of level found, bingo level complete. One time I found all 3 jewel shards in like 30 seconds, when I play as werewolf sonic I feel like each stage takes a lifetime. Also in the SA's in one of knuckles level im in a canyon, another Im flying through this misty bottomless spooky halloween place, another Im in space, all with kickin raps. werewolf sonic is half the game, 9/10 levels were in a town with some sort of silly orchestra playing.

 

This is kind of what I meant by treading carefully, either have it as a sort of small gimmick that is done a little bit (like racing in SA2) or a huge entire game consuming gimmick(choose carefully of course) like Sonic riders. That being said, anything can realistically work with the right amount of effort and work to avoid games shrinking: Ps2 and GC and a while previous were when games weren't suffering so much from the economics of console and tech advancement. Things evolved to where it becomes all about looking new so people dont feel like they bought a new console for nothing... the rest might as well be optional. Graphics are kind of the devil in the video game world, and things are sort of out of balance.
