it'll feature all the speed you'd expect from a Sonic game, alongside elements of exploration, combat and "a new Enerbeam tether mechanic".


Yes! Another year, another reboot, another gimmick.

There is no way this can be anything other than a 9/10 return to form. Let's get hyped!

It is made by STI/Naughty Dog alumni.

It is in continuity with am upcoming Sonic TV show just like Sonic X-Treme.

So are we not going to discuss the tv show cause it had a scene where Robotnik gets pissed off and says my name is "Eggman". What the Fuck happened to Ivo Mother Fucking Robotnik. Sega has officially been addressing him again by that name since Sonic 4.

As for the game I am happy that we can finally play with someone other than Sonic. The bandages seem very distracting though, why is he bandaging his shoes? From what I saw in the trailer, I am getting a suttle vibe that we may come across an evolved and mature version of Amy.

Shame, I always liked the young and innocent Amy becau...nevermind.

Really couldn't care about the cartoon and I doubt the greatest developers in the world could make a great Sonic game that features and "enerbeam tether mechanic".

They completely lost me right there already.

This is where expectations lay this time around, but then keep in mind it's the final Sonic exclusive on Wii U (that 3 game deal), and apparently it's not coming out in Japan.

Ehhh. No games to their name in six years of existence, and Naughty Dog's best work came out after they left.

Plus, it's Sonic - Sega's prized IP. They will make it their number one priority to protect it from good ideas they didn't come up with themselves.

Aaaand, I bet it's using the Hedgehog Engine, which is turd to begin with.

Look, I do want quite a few things changed to the games aesthetic.

I also would like the music to be fixed
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Zerw9DgA2U

But I am not overly cynical about this project. I like a lot of things in the redesign and it would be great to fly as tails and brawl as Knuckles again. I read somewhere that Amy will be functioning as the brain of the group. I really want to see if there is a writer in the world that can be true to the character and make her not hate-able.

As for the Hedgehog engine it was retired after Unleashed. Sure Colors and Generations maybe running on an upgraded build of the same engine but Sonic Lost World seems to be running on a new engine. And a great one.

I'm pretty sure it's still the Hedgehog Engine for Lost World...

I think we've already been over our differing expectations for Sonic games. I don't want a writer to be true to Amy's character. I want her to shut up along with the rest of the cast. They're all better as mutes. I also want straightforward no-gimmicks platforming, but that's already confirmed as out.

I'll remain completely cynical, and look forward to the day I'm proven wrong.

If you thought the redesigns in the game are bad feast your eyes on the comic book redesign:
Image

Btw Corky, I like how you were able to recall are previous conversations and we did not have to repeat the whole thing. :)

Edit:

Turns out that is a different Fox.

On an unrelated note isn't it sexist that Sonic Team only makes female character wears clothes hahhaha....

[...] Comic book chicanery

I read up to issue 60 or 70. The last issue I read, they changed the art style to match that inferior Sonic Adventure art style. This is something they've done in the past. Sega made a mistake by departing too far from the original design:

I also can't believe that the Sonic comics are so popular that demand requires two separate series each month.

It is apparently pretty intense over a decade ago I bought 2 issues.

Only cost me like a dollar or two, so why not?

I could not understand the issue at all, it had Sonic dressed up as a Ninja and doing some stealth stuff. With a bunch of other characters leading the narrative.

The other issue was an adaptation/prequel of Sonic Adventure 2. It was awesome and I still have it... somewhere.

Yeah, after issue 50 and after killing a major character, the plot went bananas. They went to different dimensions for some reason. And after killing off a critical character, they brought them back anyway. Then Sonic went through was "transformation" to match the new art style and it wasn't interesting anymore. Before all that, they had awesome moments such as robotizied Sonic and Knuckles having a brawl:

I was a huge Sonic comic nerd until the wheels came off in 2001-02.

So who did they kill off?

I don't think anybody here would bother with the comics so might as well share the plot.

The comics and SATam were insanely popular, especially since the games sort of disappeared from main stream media between 95 - 95 (After Sonic & knuckles until Sonic Adventure).

There's actually another project that looks much more promising than Sonic Boom:

I'm actually looking forward to this, haven't really enjoyed a Sonic game since the days of the Megadrive. (Lost World actually looks interesting now due to the new DLC)

Colors was pretty good, as were the first two GBA titles. I wouldn't really recommend anything else post-Genesis, though; even the Adventure games have not aged well at all.

I am sure this question is something we have discussed many times but what is wrong with Generations?

I think it is a perfect bridge between the old and the new games.

I would take Generations over Colors anyday, I may even prefer Unleashed over Colors. But I probably wouldn't.
