More Sticks, everywhere, all the time, always.

Oh boy, I'm just hoping the latter 2 platformers won't be a mess. I think they'll do the 3D platformer alright but the 2D will be make or break depending on how much they choose to butcher Clas- I mean, Pixel Sonic.

that fucking reading comprehension, it literally means they're using the old sprites on merch

oh my fucking hell. no fucking way. theyre seriously making boom sonic official? i thought that was just a spin off by sega america and nothing to do with sonic teams plans?

they never mention that. it's just boom, olympics, and anniversary game. sonic stadium just likes stirring up shit
>comic book sonic
>pixel sonic
this is just for dumbasses who don't know what a genesis and archie are

i can't say i have much faith, since they said the 15th anniversary would be the best thing ever. they are merely trying to cash in on the hype of casuals as usual that don't know sonic's shit history. all we can do now is wait and see everything crash down.

>>323520661
>tfw 2D sonic is shit

Cant wait to see the new 3D game though, lost world used way to much 2D. Generations was better but by default at least 50% of the game was 2D and then add the modern sonic 2D sections, so maybe 70% 2D total. Colors was literally almost all 2D, 3D was just used for cinematics and stunts and reminding you sonic goes fast. I feel like Unleashed was the last fully 3D game so Ive been waiting forever
>>
>>323520035
Because other than the games it has been a success?
>>
>>323520374
>>323519483

Sonic Boom was made for the show intentionally more priority

The game just exists as a tie in prequel to the show

Maybe because low budget?

Personally I want them to get better music in the show.

It's definitely a budget thing. They've got some french animation team pumping out episodes in rapid fashion.

>Personally I want them to get better music in the show.
This along with more audio work overall would probably help alleviate some of the stiffness in scenes. It's amazing what good sound composition can do to make things seem more alive.

I used to love Sonic so much. I used to play house with plushies of sonic characters with my siblings. I followed anything sonic related back then. I even enjoyed 06. Around the time of generations, I lost my love for him. I just want another good game. Fuck Sonic 4. Fuck Lost World. Fuck Boom.

The Sonic Boom show is by far the best Sonic tv show.

I'd say Unleashed was much better if it weren't for all the filler.
And the majority of Generations is 2D anyway.
>>
>>323523153
go to bed, arin

>>323523528
Unleashed Day stages are certainty much better and it is faster, but the controls are better in Generations. I actually didn't like colors much.
>>
>>323523337
Nah cartoon was better
>>
>>323523135
Technically, there's the Generations mod that includes all of the daytime Unleashed levels aside from Eggmanland and the night stages. I wouldn't mind an actual port of Unleashed if they changed the night stages to where the stage music always plays even during combat instead of being overridden by the battle/fight music.

>yfw they'll all be mediocre
>>
>>323522953
Yeah but it was still fairly balanced, especially compared to what came after. The werehog being a full 3D platformer really helped it feel like 3D was the predominant genre in Unleashed as well

I just want that feeling again of a primary 3D platformer. I miss when you stuck to the handheld games if you wanted 2D and console sonics if you wanted 3D
>>
>>323522913
pirate it if you're getting it for pc, it's fun but its short as fuck and you'll never play it again afterwards.

Whatever happened to the Sonic movie that they were planning to do?
>>
>>323524174
>you'll never play it again afterwards
What?
Do you not enjoy trying to beat your best time?
Do you not enjoy finding different paths and shit?
Most good Sonic games are designed almost primarily with replay value in mind, and Generations is no exception.
Are you really playing it like some linear story-focused AAA game?
>>

Thats nothing a quick mod cant fix.

Man Unleashed is really a work of art. The way it so lovingly celebrates major cultures in a style that inspires childish wonder is something else. The night stages are very under rated because of the constant battles and battle music. A mod to make the werehog 1 hit kill everything and disable the battle music would show that there was a great puzzle platformer buried in there all these years that everyone unfairly shat on
>>
>>323524252
No news since the announced it. Writer said they are aiming for a PG-13 rating, though.

Not surprising

Those are just how they are described. Pixel just refers to Classic Sonic as a sprite, and comic book Sonic is self-explanatory. Hell, they say Classic Sonic in the pic in the article.

Yeah, and they claimed pic related too.

I don't think people know the meaning of success. Sonic cartoons were on more

I'm sick of all the stupid fucking teases.

Just do it so we can get on with our lives.
>>
What the fuck is up with Boom? So you've got this video game franchise that's lost 95% of its audience due to poor quality games. Then you've got this same franchise made into a modestly successful children's television show. And to tie in with the show, you've got games that Sega knows are terrible beyond redemption in either quality or infamy and they just keep releasing them. It's like a snake eating itself to survive. Where the fuck is this going in the longrun and who is making this stuff up?
>>
>>323519062
I hope we get some Knuckles stages in the supposed new 3d game.
>>
>>323525860
If they would be like the stages from Adventure 1/2, then no thanks.
>>
>>323520493
Can't say I agree. Modern Sonic looks like a goofy idiot.
>>
>>323523980
Im assuming the 2d sonic is just going to be sonic 4 episode 3
>>
>>323526036
Knuckles would be perfect for a character action segment, if only Sonic Team could do it without fucking it up.
>>
>>323526154
Unless they change the style, that wouldn't happen. If we were to get a 2D game, it'd be something Classic Sonic related.
>>
It annoys me that Sonic Boom is there as if it's something significant at all.
>>
>>323526192
Perhaps I'm just being stupid but maybe Unleashed would have been better if the nigger animal stages were just knuckles instead and not at night.
>>
>>323525860
There is no way people enjoyed knuckles levels. They slowed the game down to a halt and how many times can knuckles loose the emeralds because he was asleep

I didn't even know there was more than one Sonic Boom game till this thread.
I remember the first one came out and was a huge disappointment. They kept making them anyways? Doesn't seem like anyone paid attention after the first ether.
>>
>>323526409
Will people FINALLY realize this hasn't been an issue for the past decade, or recognize that the issue was the different gameplay types and not the characters themselves as no one seemed to mind every game adding at least one character until Adventure came along?

There was the Wii U and 3DS game that came out around the same time.

I wasn't bothered by Boom initially, even though I knew it was a sub par game. But the way they are continuing to force it is making me hate it a bit more every time I see it.

And no, I don't care about the cartoon any more than I care about the comics. Sonic is a video game series to me. The characters and setting works well for colorful platformers, but as their own entity they fail to interest me at all.
>>
>>323527887
Nah.
Any content that isn't a daytime level is generally pretty poor, but those daytime levels are fucking great, and Colors and Generations mostly just took steps back from it aside from removing the QTEs.

Colors had better art design.

>>323528490
Liking the Werehog stages is a minority opinion anon.

>>323528440
Sonic R soundtrack was legendary for being cheesy as fuck and not fitting the game. It was still enjoyable though. Saturn 3D Blast soundtrack was mediocre as fuck and pales in comparison to the Genesis one.
>>
>>323525254
The shadows look a lot better than the actual designs

Can't be worse than 06 right?

That's true, but both soundtracks are great.

Amazing Mirror, RtDL, TD. Was the wizard from MA from another dimension? What about Dark Nebula?
>>
>>323528614
Overall yes, but don't tell me Rusty Ruin, Gene Gadget, and Panic Puppet on the Saturn aren't great too.

Also don't forget how superior the Special Stage was to the Genesis one.

Because it's not a good game
And the "speed stages" consisted of running on a linear hallways most of the time
Werehog was a shovelware beat 'em up at best

I don't think it's that bad...it's an average game that I wouldn't mind playing again but it's not a good game

How exactly did it not fit the game?
The songs described the stages(kind of) and were fitting

There's also the Instrumental Soundtrack(where you can turn off the vocals) which imo is better than the one with the vocals but that's just me
>>
>>323528932
Level designs were better than Sonic 4 but I'm talking about the controls and physics. As shitty as Sonic 4's were he at least handled okay unlike the boost games.

And yes I forgot about how much 2D shit was in Colors. I retract my statement about Unleashed being the worst offender.

A lot of those were awesome boss fights.
Are you seriously flipping out about Kirby canon? Something that hardly exists?
Not that it matters if it exists or not, since Kirby belongs to such a fluid, dynamic universe.

It's crap! This is Kirby, for FUCK'S SAKE! None of this shit fits!

Galacta Knight is okay, except his backstory could have been better,

And the dragons, which were Halcandra's Kirby, should have made it to Dream Land or been more of a single, marketable unit, or something.

Too bad that it was stuck on the Wii so it doesn't look as good as it could have looked

You just seem upset that the fictional world of Kirby didn't elaborate in a way that matched your personal vision.
But why does it matter anyways? Kirby is not a story heavy series. Everything that happens in the games happens to service the game mechanics or make something cute/creepy appear on screen.

I agree Colors had the better art design but I wouldn't day Unleashed's was boring.

Why has the music for sonic always been great where as the games have not been on par?
>>
>>323529631
Not to say that colors wasnt creative but I thought it was amazing how well modeled yet stylized the real world was in unleashed. Being in a small chinese or south east asia village, or a town in europe, or the big city new york in the united states was an incredible feeling since it looked so real but kept it surreal by having those pixar like humans.

If it looked bland like 06 i would agree but Unleashed has a really great engine and style powering it all which makes it win in the end

And I didn't like how the NPC's looked...they looked like Mii's

>>323528589

Kirby villains have almost always been some personification of darkness. Even Meta Knight is to some extent supposed to be a darker Kirby.

Like, what about Nightmare or Dark Matter? That's about as classic as you can get with Kirby villains.
>>
>>323520661
Sonic 4 episode 2 was actually good, but everyone overlooked it because episode 1 was so shit.
>>
>>323530076
You think Unleashed's NPC's looked like Mii's. You must be high. Every one of them are pretty distinguishable too.

I don't want 06 Shit tier npc's again.
>>
>>323530076
I would want the humans to look like Eggman and the Billy Hatcher characters, actually in the style of the main cast.
>>
>>323529787
So it didn't turn out to look like Kirby's Adventure or Dream Land 1. That's fine, I guess. Although KA was pretty fucking sweet.

But all these edgy characters? Why? Can't it just be Dedede and Metaknight?

Can we have something different than "Evil Sorcerer For The Fifth Time In A Row" and "Not-Dark Matter"?
>>
>>323529914
Secret Rings, Colors, Unleashed, and Rush Adventure all have pretty good music.

>I don't want 06 Shit tier npc's again

>>323530197
It was definitely better than episode 1. I would stop short of calling it good but it was probably the best they could do with that busted ass physics engine.
>>
>>323530158
Yes, but Nightmare bit the dust, and Metaknight's no longer a recurring villain. Or even a villain.
Dark Matter was a good antithesis to Kirby.

Now, it's like, OH WELL, NO SENSE PLAYING THE NEXT KIRBY, BECAUSE THE FINAL BOSS IS JUST GONNA BE THE EVIL SORCERER FROM THE INTRO. AGAIN.
>>
>>323530076
Nah man youre nuts. They didnt look like miis. They looked like typical cartoony characters youd see in maybe a pixar movie or whatever.

It was great how the npcs actually had side stories, missions, and interesting dialogue etc in Unleashed. It was the first time the hub and npcs felt useful in a sonic game.

Dark Matter and it's various incarnations are often considered a fan favorite when it comes to Kirby antagonists, are still some of the more visually disturbing things in the series.

And Nightmare existed as early as Adventure. The only game with just Dedede is Dreamland. That's a very small portion of the series history.

>>323530440
No human NPCs at least. I wouldn't mind finding Knuckles or somebody hanging out in a level (or hub or whatever) but no humans.

There shouldn't be a bunch of NPCs to begin with. If any show up they should be rare, and they should be one of the established characters. The only human should be Robotnik/Eggman.

Which Kirby game recently has even done that? Besides /maybe/ Rainbow Curse?

And if anything, Kirby villains have gotten less dark as time has gone on. Most of the recent examples you gave are colorful characters that don't even come off as dark or edgy (but more like final bosses which tend to look sort of villainous sometimes)

Episode II is the shinning example of a game being so painfully average in every way that I can't even muster up a fuck to give about it and barely remember anything of note beyond that one song no doubt created by someone stomping on ducks.
It is THE 5/10 game for me.

Episode I was at least so fucking terrible on all fronts that I felt an identifiable emotion playing it.

Super Sonic just broke physics, replaced great stage music with repetitive and annoying invincibility music, made precision platforming retarded, and made already too easy games even easier.

>>
>>323531293
The hub in sonic adventure is useless but the ones in unleashed are very small and have useful npcs and side missions and stuff. They range from tiny (empire city, adabat, holoska, chun nan) to small (spagonia, shamar, apotos) and really helped you get into the world traveling theme of the game.
>>
>>323531319
When will those fuckers die as horrible a death as a happy tree friend?

>>
>>323531206
I'd be okay with an ending battle if it was how Sonic 3 & Knuckles did it: Super (or in this case Hyper) Sonic is still playable normally but if you have him unlocked you get an additional "true" final boss.

>>323531239
I don't want the games to have superfluous bullshit. They need to focus on nailing the core gameplay and making sure the levels are well designed. We don't need some shitty hub world full of NPCs who contribute nothing to the game. It's not a fucking RPG.
>>
>>323531263
>>323531293
The hub worlds in SA1 are relatively small, filled with easily-recognizable landmarks so you never get lost, add to the game by having atmosphere and making the levels feel connected with an actual world, and are great for doing random spindashes off ramps and hills to get some extremely satisfying air.

Yeah i thought it was weird how china and south east asia got represented before japan...but i guess there was a small bias since its 2 asian countries.

>>323532115

At the very least Unleashed had semblance of layout design for them compared to Adventure and 06. Some people just don't like it.
>>
>>323524481
are you 18 years old and grew up playing it or something? unleashed is trash, the good parts of it were ported into generations entirely
>>
>>323532212
I'm of the opinion that the hubs in Adventure were mediocre, the hubs in Unleashed were pretty good, and the hubs in both added absolutely nothing to the experience of playing a Sonic game.

By the same token, I wouldn't have enjoyed Big even if he had the most masterful, finely crafted fishing mechanics of any fishing game ever made.

But there is seriously nothing inoffensive about the unleashed hubs. Anyone who played it remember how tiny but dense and comfy they were. This is empire citys hub, its literally this big. A fountain in the middle in a park area with some food stands and tables on the side.

You have poor taste in music then that grates my ears hearing it for too long.

Unleashed is the only Sonic game in recent that has a controllable camera. Colors and Generations and Lost World ditched it. And the boost trilogy games didn't have that bad of a camera since it was scripted out for where cameras should be showing you stuff anyways.

Literally they made those games to not have as much camera fuckups . Only time it would fuck up if you went into a corner of a level.

Why? You have people crying for more exploration and to slow down in sonic and they get the chance to do so by keeping an eye out for medals and playing carefully. And then they start crying again saying they actually dont want exploration? Need to make up their fucking mind. I only had to hunt for medals once in the game near the end because I was missing like 10. I wasnt even trying to hunt them down and yet I pretty much had enough. Later when i went to platinum the game I thought it was actually fun to play it different and explore more with both sonics to find medals.

Better than doing shit missions in a hub world to open up a level gate.

In Unleashed you didn't even have to talk to the NPC's to get further with the story Most of it was for achievement completion.

>>323533685
You just suck thats all.

>>323533928
Yeah only time I had trouble when I first played I didn't have enough to get into Adabats stage gate like most people probably did. If you got stuck earlier you just fucking suck at the game.

>>323533607
My hype carried me the entire way, I wasn't enjoying myself playing 06 but I had to complete it, I HAD to, I could only complete it with Sonic as that was the only character I give a shit about in that game..
>>
>>323533928
>Need to make up their fucking mind
The game needs to make up it's mind.
You don't make the fastest and most linear Sonic yet, and then require you keep an eye out for medals and explore to progress. The design is schizophrenic.

Like a california beach? That would be an awesome location and surfboard gimmicks could potentially be great in the ocean. I would keep spagonia though, there is tons of countries in europe that could be swapped out with italy. Swap mazuri because who cares about africa. Id say mazuri and holoska could be free slots while theres enough differences in locations in the current countries to make it exciting
>>
>>323533928
>Why? You have people crying for more exploration and to slow down in sonic and they get the chance to do so
Are you fucking kidding me?

First off
There's barely anything to explore in the Unleashed Hub Worlds
Medals are nothing but McGuffins

Second off
The exploration should be in the levels themselves like in the classic games not relegated to it's own section you retard

>>323533928
You clearly played this when you were age 15 and now you're forcing everyone in this topic to like this shitty ass game.

>>323534031
Yeah it was with adabat now that I remember since the spike was higher than usual, but it still was easy as fuck to find a couple medals to continue.

>>323534107
If its linear then shouldnt it be even easier to find medals since theres not that many places to hide them?

>>323534209
The exploring for medals is in the main gameplay levels. The hubs have a couple medals tossed in but theyre all majority in the levels.

>>323534267

Add to the fact that the game pushes you to go fast all the time there's no real reason to slow down for a tiny corridor here and there

>>323534402
Thank you here's hoping he does something good if he shows up.

>>323534541
In the early parts of the game you shouldn't even be boosting a lot unless you raised up your boosting the whole time to make yourself have a terrible time with the Werehog. Otherwise you aren't going that fast to miss those >narrow corridors

>>323534454
>Yeah it was with adabat now that I remember since the spike was higher than usual, but it still was easy as fuck to find a couple medals to continue.

I liked the special stages though.

No, it's just that it's slow as shit and isometric platforming is fucking stupid. Also the game is just boring and ugly.

Its replayability and gives you something to look for in the levels (exploring) besides brute rushing to the end

>>
>>323534919
It's not slow if you know what you're doing. Speed came from playing well, as it should. The platforming worked fine too. You either sucked at the game or your ADD didn't let you get through it. Sonic games shouldn't be about going fast all the time. You only get to go fast once you get good at them. That's what the boost games got wrong.
>>
>>323534958
It's padding not replayability
>>
>>323535313
Why is it padding
>>
>>323535121
If you were saying this about the classics I'd agree
But...Sonic 3D Blast...nah fuck no

Sonic 3D Blast was a weird game with Sonic in it
Even based Hirokazu Yasuhara himself disapproved of it(and he worked on it too)

"I was opposed to [Sega's] decision to create games that use 'Sonic-something' so that they can sell it easily. I wanted to make good games, not any games that used the Sonic character in a haphazard way."
- Yasuhara on his work on the Traveller's Tales-developed Sonic titles
>>
>>323534958
It would be replayability if it didn't block off the rest of the main content.
>>
>>323535121
>It's not slow if you know what you're doing

Except it is. If you went to fast, you got hit from shit that came at you from an awkward angle. There are no straight or open areas where you can run and advance to the next part. 3D Blast is about exploring and collecting Flickey's, not going fast and getting to he end of the stage.

The game is incredibly easy and boring. Stop acting like it takes any skill to beat it.
>>
maybe "Pixel Sonic" means the 2d sonic game will actually be a legit sprite game.
>>
>>323535450
Because it's not fun
Nobody in their right mind enjoys collecting worthless bullshit
That's Shovelware mentality right there
>>
>>323535450
>>323535313
>Anything that makes me have to go back to a level to get something is always padding if it doesn't make me progress.

Unleashed had a lot of shit. If you collected medals enough you'd unlock music and other artwork that you don't normally find in levels along with the CD's and the Books in the levels as well. Its not just the medals but searching for the medals often lead you to find the other things as well.

>>
>>323535669
And that was in Generations too. But you didn't have to collect it to beat the main game. You do in Unleashed. It's padding. Dont try to hide it, even the devs acknowledged that "we need to make sonic games longer somehow" at the time
>>
>>323535669
But it's not nearly as fun as playing Sonic 3K and after 20 years still finding secret areas in Marble Garden
>>
>>323535647
But >>323535669

So what about all those "platformers" from the n64 that barely have any actual platforming and is just a randomly generated shitty giant world with shit scattered around for autists to collect? The n64 must be king of shovelware then if collecting things in a platformer is the new criteria to make it bad
>>
>>323535861
>"we need to make sonic games longer somehow
Which is the dumbest shit ever

What they need to do is make the gameplay good

Sonic 1 is an hour long yet it never feels too short for a reason

>>323535950
I can't speak for others but except for Mario 64 I absolutely loathe N64 platformers

The best thing about having the lowest possible hopes for this shit is that if anything is even remotely decent, it'll be a pretty pleasant surprise.
>>
>>323535121
Yes it it is. Even if you know what you're doing, you STILL have to slow down and make sure you collect the Flickies.

On a regular Sonic game, you can speed by and avoid enemies if you can, or know how to avoid them. On Sonic 3D Blast, you at have to fight at least 5 enemies, and in later stages, some of them don't have the Flickys inside!

The only way to make 3D Blast passable is if you took out having to hunt down these birds, and even then the games' quality is still questionable.
>>
>>323535861
Generations had you complete shitty missions for artwork, music, and they did it to make you move on to the next level. I'd rather collect medals then play their missions.
>>
>>323536050
>>323536062
Oh...well fuck because I agree that the n64 is nothing but shovelware trash but despite being terrible ideas and shittily executed in n64 shovelware, i love medal hunting in unleashed because of how well crafted the worlds are

>>323536218
Even then, 3D Blast is pretty slow.

It depends on how the game's made. Unleashed and Generations were pretty expensive to make. That's why Lost World was slower and looked so shitty in comparison. You really can't justify trying to sell a modern Sanic game for fifteen dollars. Too much money and resources are put into the stages for that. Also, as a major game franchise, it'd look extremely bad for them to try to sell an hour-long $15 game as a flagship title. It's bad press.
>>
>>323519062
>Sonic Boom

As long as they don't try to make anymore games. The show's fine on its own.
>>
>>323536136
But this is what people want sadly. Colors and Generations are about 3 hours each and despite having more levels, are filled to the brim with shitty forgettable acts/missions. Colors in particular, anything past Act 2 more than likely sucks. Generations has some creative and good platforming challenge missions but theres tons of duds too. Both games have shitty final bosses.

Unleashed, like it or hate it for the werehog and medals, was a very long and fulfilling game. The few main acts in Unleashed are all easily better than every Act 1 in Colors and every Act 2 in Generations, not to mention harder and much longer (average Unleashed stage is 4-6 minutes, Generations is half that, Colors is 1/3 that). It was around 15 hours and maybe you didn't like all 15 of them, but at least it felt like a full and complete game that you got your moneys worth for.

This is the problem I have with Colors and Generations fags, but most notably Colorsfags. They put quantity and MUH PURE EXPERIENCE above a full, complete feeling game. You didn't like the werehog combat? Big deal, it went fast and there was decent platforming and exploration to make up for it. You didn't like medal hunting? What, you didn't like replaying the levels to find new shit, get new times, and get more EXP to level up the Sonics? Why even play past Apotos then if you hated the structure? Fuck that. I would rather take a Sonic game that has a great main course with some padding on the side than just non stop filler act/mission, one after the other.
>>
>>323536815
It wouldn't have to be necessarily very high budget
Like if they could make a 2D Classic Sonic game that was actually good and lived up to the classic games but used 16/32 bit graphics I'd be fine with that(that's just me though)

But I get what you're saying with the whole budget thing
It's sad that Video Games are so expensive to produce these days

But forcing bullshit on us to make the game longer is unacceptable
That's what gave us the fucking Werehog after all
>>
>>323537043
>are filled to the brim with shitty forgettable acts/missions
Better than Werehog and Medal Collecting any fucking day

And un
>>
>>323537043
thats what I'm hoping for this new sonic game to be something like Unleashed being a complete experience since Unleashed took 5 years to make and roughly around 3 years for Generations the boost gameplay takes a lot of resources.

Most stages in Unleashed are around 10 meters long. Generations is about 5-6 meters long.

>>323537152
Werehog wouldn't be bad if it didn't have to interrupt us every time saying HEY FAGGOT YOU CAN'T MOVE ON NOW TILL YOU BEAT THESE GUYS

That and the battle music kills me. Otherwise I didn't think it was that bad.
>>
>>323537237
And its cucks like this that result in short shitty games that have zero world building, zero significant story, and zero memorable acts. I'm not buying another Sonic until its as long and ambitious as Unleashed was. All this slowed down, back to the basics 2D garbage plagued Colors and Generations and made them suffer hard for it. Classic Sonic, easily, is the weak half of Generations.

Either way it's not what I want from a Sonic Game and feels out of place

>That and the battle music kills me. Otherwise I didn't think it was that bad.
Battle Music itself was fine
The problem was that you heard the fucking beginning of that song way too many fucking times
And it was the only battle theme in the game...it would have been nice if every zone had it's own battle theme(like in Kindgom Hearts)

Personally I would have used that theme only for the last battle before the goalpost since the regular music for the night stages was just so fucking good and I hated it when it got interrupted

Theres also this when they talked about about the Hedgehog Engine.

Also talked about how anything can look good with GI when showing a Black Knight level port to Unleashed.

In another interview Hashimoto talked about having the engine being able to handle real time GI but todays consoles around the time of 360 couldn't handle it. Hopefully we get something like that now. But maybe not since Hashimoto has long since left. But Iizuka has said that he's wanted that though.

They'll never make another Unleashed style world travelling game again.

The amazing looking levels took a long ass time to design obviously, and all the resources were mostly waisted because you just sanic past them instantly

Its the same reason why generations only has 9 modern levels total. As gorgeous as the levels look, its a lot harder and time consuming to create levels like that it is to make stuff like the original green hill zone for example

>>323542781
The main problem with the new writers is that Sonic, by all means, SHOULD be a fucking goldmine for gags. The series is full of goofy animal characters with very simple, defined quirks and personalities to bounce off of each other. Even "serious" Sonic was already hilarious, even if it was for the wrong reasons.
But then they throw all that shit out and just write a bunch of generic, boring "cocky, arrogant fool hero and smart, sarcastic straight man" dialogue for Sonic and Tails. They wrote the characters to fit the jokes instead of writing the jokes to fit the characters.
Sure, their Eggman quips in Colors were great, but you'd pretty much have to be clinically retarded to fuck up writing for Eggman.

I think same as Wii U
the main problem is that when holding the run button you control fine until the minute you want to go in a direction that isn't a straight line, think unleashed/colors/generations controls without boosting, more acceleration, and a clunky parkour system that makes you climb any walls you run into

basically going fast sacrifices good control, and I feel like the game would be fine if it controlled like an adventure game with the run button being dedicated parkour button

Hedgehog Engine was used in its entirety in Generations. Don't blame the engines used, blame the fact that Generations used an intentionally crappier shader (probably to run better on toasters) and had an art direction that couldn't decide what it wanted to be (the whole trip down memory lane factor probably caused that issue)

One of the problems with 3D Sonic, as I see it

In Sonic Adventure and Adventure 2, Sonic and Shadow controlled well at low-to-mid speeds. Their turning was good and they felt weighty. At high speeds in the Adventure games, Sonic didn't steer well. If you press left when you're running forward at high speed, you'll veer off in some diagonal direction incredibly quickly. It doesn't feel correct.

In the Boost Trilogy, Sonic controls like a tank at lower speeds, and it fucking kills the platforming sections in particular. At higher speeds however, he controls much more like we would probably expect him to.

What they need is some kind of middle ground. Sonic's turning, among other things, needs to work on a sliding scale, in which you have near instant 360 degree turning at low speeds, Unleashed levels of control at the highest speed, and everything inbetween.

Personally I'd also opt for them to replace the Boost with an actual abusable Sonic Adventure 1 styled spindash, but either personally works for me

From what I recall back when modding Generations was new, people said that the Classic Sonic stages are so heavily scripted that removing just one would make the stage near uncompletable. Like, there's scripts for just basic slopes and ramps.

My point is, I'm sure someone could do it, but it would basically be redoing the entire engine from scratch, since what they have is so flaky it requires scripted events out the ass to function halfway decently. You don't notice this as much with Modern Sonic because the boost does a better job covering it up. You get caught up in the spectacle of it, the first time around. Then after repeated playthroughs you start to notice the cracks, which upon closer inspection are really fissures, in the foundation of this game.

Sonic Team seems hellbent on putting the cart before the horse when it comes to Sonic gameplay. They want it to be all flash and no substance. Naka was doing this since SA1, when it started to become an "action game" rather than a platformer. Reading between the lines this essentially absolves the developers of any responsibility to properly translate what made the classics so great (namely, Sonic's pinball physics) into 3D, and they instead focus on making the games as "thrilling" as possible. And no, holding up and sometimes homing attacking doesn't count as platforming, especially with how you're not really in control because of how scripted everything is. Boost Sonic is the most guilty of this. You have to build an engine that suits Sonic first, and then build a level around that. At the end of the day that's what made the classic trilogy so great.

I think it's possible to have this Sonic again, but I think it's going to take Sega/ST pulling their heads out of their asses first so they can actually address the real issues. But I seriously doubt it going to happen anytime soon, and your best bet is to hope one day the fans can actually finish a project to make what I'm saying here a reality.
