Is it a defense force if it's objectively true that Classic is better than Modern and Mania is the only Sonic game we need?

Also Mania, while a ROMhack, is still better than anything Sonic Team can put out apparently. Just hand Sonic over to Taxman and be done with it

Except Modern Sonic played better than Classic Sonic in Generations. There's not much competition besides "muh nostalgia" because Classic played like sluggish shit compared to the level design for Modern taking a lot of the good aspects of Unleashed and Colors and doing them well.

Classic Sonic is back for god knows what reason so he can eat off of more nostalgia.
The Wisps are still around.
Boost gameplay has returned.
All the old character are just NPC cheerleaders again.
ANOTHER new character is being introduced. Looks like Bubsy to boot.
It's a "Eggman obtains/unlocks/unleashes another mystic power to beat Sonic/rule the world" plot again.
Classic Sonic's Green Hill stage looks like complete ass, and his gameplay looks like it's suffering too.
The guy who designed Sonic & The Secret Rings, Sonic & The Black Knight, Sonic Colors, and directed Sonic Colors is directing the game.

Dead. On. Fucking. Arrival.

Also remember, to kill Solaris, we need to kill him in the pasr (Generations, Time Eater), the present (2006 with Super Sonic, Super Shadow & Super Silver) and the future (Sonic Forces)

I'm less disappointing, more confused as to how they could mess up something like the classic gameplay. When they've shown themselves capable of doing better than this. It's not Sonic cycle, but it's not exactly covering themselves in glory.

Also the fact that people are defending this, I can accept that we need to see more before passing judgement. I can accept that it's not 06 levels of bad, but you can't look at this footage and say 'yep, this is what we waited for over 2 years for.

It is somewhat hard to believe that the same people, who made beloved classic games could trot out something that looks like like Sonic 4 episode 1 with a fresh coat of paint.

I think this surmises the frustration; Mania is over there making something that looks fantastic, utterly fantastic. While Sonic Team cannot even manage to make a level or at least show part of a level that isn't 'run right and jump'.

Forces information wasn't even announced for this direct. They didn't need to show anything, as they normally don't. Like I said, they're very selective and secretive about what information they present about Forces.

They didn't need to show anything at all, but instead they showed exactly what people didn't want to see.

- the third character in Forces will be an “unexpected character”
- Sonic Boom Sonic is NOT in the game
- the third character “plays an important role in the story, and embodies the overall features of the game”
- Sonic 3’s bonus stages seem likely to return in Sonic Mania
- “The boost system from Sonic Unleashed is present, as well as stages based on reaching the goal and clearing them a certain time limit also seem to be present.”
- “Classic Sonic stages are based on side scrolling 2D action" and will also have a twist
- Sonic Forces will be at E3 this year
- E3 will be where the third character will be revealed
- Sonic Forces story: “Dr. Eggman took over 99% of the world. Sonic and the “Resistance” members are fighting. Then another Sonic appears…”
- the reason why Eggman takes over so much of the world is because of “a new power” that his obtains
- this is the same power that makes classic Sonic appear
- Morio Kishimoto is the director of Sonic Forces
- Sonic Forces has been in development since 2013, and started around Sonic Lost World’s release
- “Forces was chosen as a subtitle from it meaning “power” and “army”. Two strong forces (Sonic and co vs. Eggman) are facing off in the game.”
- “This time, Sonic is fighting an Eggman who has nearly taken over the world.”
- the game won’t be all dark and gloomy, but there are some lighter stages in Forces
- Sonic Mania’s development began in 2015, as Sonic Team wanted to do a new 2D Sonic game and “not a remake”
- the general rule for the art of Sonic Mania was to be above the level of Genesis, but under the level of Saturn
- gameplay for Mania is similar to Sonic 3
- elemental shields were mentioned as returning

I wasn't saying that it was, I was just saying that is what the footage reminded me of.

Well, they work there, people have played the old games. They must know, why can't they LEARN?

Okay, the boost may be good, I'm sure that will be fine, I just feel that it will be weighed down by a completely lackluster Sonic 4/Lost World 2D style 'classic' Sonic and the wild card that is Hugh DePlayr's gameplay.

This. There was some complaints, but no one was flying off the handle this hard with Boost.

Forces doesn't look that shitty. Classic Sonic's gameplay looks unimpressive especially compared to Mania, but that was an inevitability the moment it was shown that he was gonna be in the game. The Boost gameplay looks super fun & the third gameplay & new character is something I'm curious about. People everywhere needs to chill.

Well, they work there, people have played the old games. They must know, why can't they LEARN?
Most Japanese companies don't learn from the past. Just look at Konami and Capcom, who only use the past as a means of reselling the same shit over and over and over with the same stuff on top. Sega takes one step forward and two steps back all the time in learning lessons.

Classic Sonic in terms of games is probably something Sonic Team wants to overcome and rise out of the shadow of, rather than be forever held to. Which is why Classic Sonic in Generations was unrefined and kinda felt slapped in since it was only added in on fan demand. The character himself in the 3D games is pretty much just to appeal to older audiences that bitch about everything Modern.

Need_TLC

Because it's not a 1 to 1 comparison. What they showed for Modern looked like a return to Unleashed/Generations after Lost World. That's hype.

Classic is already redundant with Mania, but the fact that it looks visually unappealing compared to Generations, and looks to be more of the same with no improvement? That's concerning.

But your right, it's only been 10 seconds, so we should wait.

I just wish it were a better 10 seconds is all.

Maybe if you have no clue how game development works. I'm not worried at all because this is simply how it happens. Ignorants like you will always flip out about how bad a game looks when early footage is shown and it almost always ends up being fine, granted nothing major happens like with RoL.

I can get that, they want to move forward, then why can't they let go? They have Mania? I like classic Sonic and I have that, I'm excited for Boosting Sonic, however to know that they wasted their damn time on making a Sonic 4 esque slapped-on Classic (judging from this footage, they may of course surprise us) when they could have been adding and refining to Boost. It's just ridiculous.

This. Almost everyone here seems to not mind Boost coming back & being used, but almost everyone is either unimpressed or downright pissed with Classic Sonic's gameplay.

Definitely a valid criticism. You know what? I'm glad this is happening. When Forces comes out & people praise the Boost gameplay & (depending on what it is) the third gameplay style, while shitting over how unimpressive Classic Sonic's is, this may convince SEGA to stop using him in the 3D games.

Skullbone
Skullbone

Forces should've just been a boost game. There, I said it.

Firespawn

Probably because there was so much praise for Classic Sonic being a part of Generations that they wanted to play it safe and appeal to everyone with their next big game.

Honestly, depending on how the third character plays, i'd rather they just cut Classic out unless it was like some minigame/sidegame thing, because I too would want to see Boost refinement.

I will say that everyone needs to calm the fuck down over literally 20 seconds (if not less) of total gameplay reveal.

No. Placeholder textures are usually just images stretched to cover a surface rather than specifically created textures so everything doesn't just look the same.

I'm throwing my hat in with you. I'm not enthralled with what I've seen of Classic, but I'm hype as shit for Modern, and the music and the "conquered world" tone. I'm expecting to be pleasantly surprised by whatever the third character is, and really if it is a create-a-character than the only way it'll be disappointing to me is if the customization options are sorely limited.

Honestly beyond the head due to the ears and facial fur, the new character is so lacking in detail besides generic gloves and shoes that it's impossible to figure out if it's an old character and just looks too bland to be a new one given how even characters of the same species in this series just about always look visually distinct enough to stand out.

As is it literally looks like Antonie's head ontop of Sonic's body.

Even then, they usually have some special hair, distinct gloves/shoes or something.

Even if Forces Classic initially looks like trash, there's still some optimism in the Modern and third styled, hell maybe Classic won't be as bad as it looks. So it's not a complete disaster.

And there's still Mania to look forward to - and we already know it's good.

The Bubsy talk is hilarious to me though so I'm fine with it.

The reason why Eggman takes over so much of the world is because of “a new power” that his obtains, resulting in his army controlling that much of the world.

Mania should've been called "Sonic V1"

- Indicates progression (V = 5) without directly calling it "Sonic the Hedgehog 5"
- At the same time, calling it V1 (version 1) lets people know that they're restarting the classic line from where it really left off
- Name format allows for sequels, continuing the line as a side series (V2, V3, V4, etc.)
- Half-assed reference to V-speeds to link it to Sonic = speed
- Sonic could totally slap a tornado

I'd feel the same way I do now which is feeling indifferent. Forces initially got me optimistically curious but now it just feels like such a side thing to me, like I'll probably enjoy it whenever I get it but I'm not hyped at all for it unlike the other game. Also I'm not too sure about them just adding a new play style each boost game, it makes it feel like the game might lack focus to some degree but I don't know. I do hope for the best though, I enjoyed Generations a lot and Colors was also alright.

I have to admit, while it looked slightly iffy, the Modern section still looked pretty damn detailed and Generations level of visual quality compared to how goddamn simplistic Classic Sonic's section looks.

5mileys
5mileys

This is probably an unpopular opinion, but... I'd be pretty hype for create-a-character, so long as they put actual effort into it and give a good amount of customization options.

Plus, look at it this way. If they do go that route, the character's probably going to be tolerable, at worst. They can't make them act too outlandishly, or give them a ridiculously contrived backstory. They probably won't even speak. By their very nature as a blank slate that we build on, they have to make them fairly generic in the story. That might sound bad at first, but it ALSO means we aren't going to get anything too obnoxiously annoying.

The concept might be cheesy, but it's fun.

It has a fanbase because there's nothing else quite like it. Same reason people loved the shit out of the original Jet Set Radio despite it having its own respective issues. Inspired concepts and ideas really go a long way in pulling people in. There's a strange yet noticeable line between people who prefer "great games that don't have anything special" and "mediocre games that really stick out". Sonic falls under the latter nowadays, but during the Genesis era it was most definitely a solid video game series that was also incredibly unique and had a great sense of style.

What's most disappointing about this new footage is the ugly blocky structures in the background. Lost World had this too. It's so bland and boring.

Sonic landscapes are supposed to be made up of sweeping curves and dramatic vistas. They have a stylish nature that matches the speed and suggests fast movement even when you're standing still. They've also got an exaggerated dream-like quality, with giant setpieces and details that imply a high-energy sense of urgency.

Colors was on a less powerful system and it didn't have this problem. Stuff like Tropical Resort, Starlight Carnival and Aquarium Park perfectly match the Sonic style.

I'm not even joking around but the Sonic fanbase actually reminds me a broken child that went through 10 different foster care homes. As a collective whole we have abandonment issues, Stockholm syndrome, and pretty much every dependency related behavioral issue.

Pic related is the "relationship violence cycle." It applies to both adult and parent-child relationships. Golly it looks familiar. Can't put my finger on it though Maybe we could call it the "Sonic cycle" or something.

And this is why the Sonic fandom is so fucked up.

I remember back in 2007 when Sega actually apologized for Sonic 06 and said they were never going to let it happen. Then we got Unleashed which was pretty good and Colors which great and Generations which was fantastic. Then we got Boom which is almost as bad as 06 and Lost World which is meh. They apologized for Boom and have been ignoring Lost World completely.

I hope this means that the next three games will be great. I don't mind being abused if it means getting good sonic games

Keep in mind that this is still applicable to the game as of now, due to the confirmation of single player and greater explanation of the plot. In fact, this was one of the first pieces of information we got after the trailer first dropped.

It says that the player will use 2 Sonic's to stop Eggman's Death Egg Robots. So there's no Punished Sonic and no playable new character.

They said there was going to be an additional component to the game. People just called it a new style for some reason. In reality, it'll probably be a new stipulation for either Classic or Modern Sonic's gameplay. Speaking of which, didn't Famitsu say that Classic Sonic's stages will have a new twist?

I tried playing Before the Sequel and it was alright, physics felt too heavy though and the level design was really strange. It seemed pretty polished at least, but the mishmashing of sprites (one of the backgrounds is just a JPEG sky photo) and shit like the MSPaint Tails bosses and the hadouken turtles and fuzzies from Yoshi's Island really took me out of the Sonic experience bigtime.

I've literally been so bored of what Sonic Forces had to offer ever since Classic Sonic been brought back as a staple until March 16th, I would love for him just to be in Sonic Mania and that team to just make more sequels with him. Cause that game looks so hot.

When I heard that there was a third gameplay style my hype rekindled back to what I was feeling prior to July. Now today my hype is even more fueled because of the new character model.

If what you're saying is true, I couldn't be more heart broken.

That's not to say the component, whatever it is, will be bad or anything. Heck, maybe you can control the new character's actions in some minigame/non-platforming manner.

Besides, I just thought it was notable that Nintendo Dream said the game would have a new component, and months later, we learn from Famitsu that the Classic stages have some kind of twist.

Some Sonic Forces stuff happened due to the Nintendo Direct. A snippet of Classic Sonic gameplay at a sand-filled Green Hill Zone, and a brief silhouette of the mysterious new character for the game that people are joking looks like they have Bubsy's head.

there's a boost pad right before a loop. I'm not one to freak out and cry "but but but my momentum! I should build up speed! Boospads make the spindash redundant!!" but seriously. If Classic is all 2D platforming and Modern Sonic is 90% 2D platforming, then they need to be different somehow. Classic should be able building up/maintaining speed. Modern is about going fast instantly with boost. Boostpads just make Classic Sonic feel... pointless.

JunkTop
JunkTop

I liked Generations, but I feel Classic's half was the worse half. Forces looks like the exact same with little showing that he's been improved since that game 6 years ago. With Mania showcasing a better place for Classic and gameplay, his inclusion in Forces feels unneeded, especially if they aren't majorly improving the issues he had in Generations.

Of course, this is so short of a clip that we can't get an exact feel for him yet, but it's not exactly looking good.

He's the only Anti that I think did a good job of being a foil to their FF. Patch is the PERFECT foil to Antoine, and his manipulative nature allowed him to be a legitimate threat without jobbing characters out (Outside of Sonic) and it gives Antoine a legitimate reason to hate the fucking guy. Also he took a year away from Antoine's life, the consequences of which were never fully explored, but there's slight implications that Antoine changed for the worse afterwards. Iirc I saw someone point out that after the incident with Patch, Antoine became a lot more prone to fits of rage and had a worse temper

Probably turn the CoC into an arc-exclusive character who shows up because they're relevant to the overall plot and then disappears at the end with decent reason, much like Chip. Instead of being a create-a-character, they'll just be given a proper name and personality but a deliberately vague history outside of what the plot sets up. The God Eater games have you play a custom character, but the anime went this route and made someone who is a stand-in for the create-a-character that is in the games, but is still an actual character.

True, but I guess I wanted to see more done with the idea. What did he have to DO on Moebius for that year? We get hints of that, but that's just it, hints. We get hints that Antoine's changed as a person because of it, including actively seeking revenge, but again, just hints. I'm not saying make a mega arc about it, but I think it'd be nice to have a couple stories about it
And the coma is the perfect way to do it

Coma was a way better way to do it than just lulling him off. Let the characters grieve, Bunnie goes off to her uncle because she feels that she failed, and Antoine wakes up having lost it all.

Then Patch shows up again, 'cause we last saw the Suppression Squad scheming before #200.

Would have been a great arc for Antoine.

Oh hell yeah. Adding to that, the eye that Antoine lost is the same one that Patch lost, so when Antoine looks in the mirror, all he can see is Patch, or his time as Patch

Once he finally sees Patch again, he acknowledges he's lost everything, that there's nothing for him but revenge or some shit

And then have Antoine kill Patch. Not for shock value, but because Antoine's had enough, this is his revenge. He's gone nuclear

there are people who are shocked Sega would show off new footage on a Nintendo direct
Why?
Also the new character reminds me of the Famitsu Mascot and Famitsu did just release alpha switch version screenshots

5mileys

Apparently the small snippets of modern footage in the Direct trailer also are different from the footage last month for other systems. Enough so that there's a notable dip in graphics here and there if you look closely enough, which implies the Nintendo footage was obviously the Switch version potentially.

Its somewhat noticeable but not enough to come off as a big downgrade, its cool it looks to run 60fps which is extremely important in my opinion if they want this to be taken seriously as a platformer.

Looking through the trailer more this is straight up a later build of the game, the blurrieness of the screenshots aren't ingame resolution differences its just shitty video coding since it doesn't look like its low res, infact I can see almost no difference between texture resolution or texture crawl, the lighting on the other hand is different and includes new effects like random ash particles in the air, the smoke trail looks slightly lower res and the water distance seems shorter.

A lot of series that introduce character creation later on often take a lazy route of males only with limited customization initially.
Hell, Metal Gear Online 2 for MGS4 introduced custom character creation for that series and you had males with a bunch of shirts and military gear. You had to buy the DLC to unlock being able to make females and some of the more unique gear which you then had to purchase with in-game (or microtransaction) funds..

Okay, so physics and boostpad aside, why are some people claiming this is a linear piece of shit again when that spring at the beginning is probably to a higher route?
Are we forgetting that the classic Sonic games you so love aren't actually all that exploratively non-linear? You get a low, middle and high route with certain ones missing depending on the level / portion, but after Sonic 1 and especially CD, they condensed that shit usually into low, mid, and the top of the middle that lets you skip chunks of mid.

I mean even Sonic Generations did that. Even some levels of Lost World occasionally did that, albeit mainly 3D ones that weren't filled with shitty gimmicks and also not a straight path forwards.

The third gameplay style is supposed to encapsulate with Sonic Forces is really about. It's supposed to really fit the theme of the game and almost represent the themes and ideas in it.

For that reason, I think the new character will be something like this:

-Some kind of time manipulation as his/her power. My personal theory: Eggman finds a device to manipulate time. Eggman stops time and conquers 99% of the world. Then he unpauses time. Suddenly it seems like he did this in the blink of an eye. It would explain the "where was Sonic while Eggman was doing this." I think New Guy will have a similar inherent ability but not as powerful. I'm thinking he might play like Blinx from that old Xbox game.

-The "forces" part of "Sonic Forces" might not just be referring to 'fighting forces' like armies and battalions. It is also referring to "the forces of nature." Time manipulation might fit this. New guy can slow down, stop, start, rewind, playback, etc. events for puzzle solving. Basically, Silver the Hedgehog but more complicated than "go to the glowing green spot and press the action button"

-The theme of the game is 'teamwork.' That makes me think the character is a wolf since they tend to work in packs, etc. It might also be a jackal or dingo since their ears are smallish and their faces are kind of fluffy like New Guy's seems to be.

-The game is in the Action/Adventure genre and at some point one of the staff mentioned "like Cave Story but not the same thing." I think New Guy is the Adventure aspect of the game. Slow-ish levels in 3D doing puzzle solving and basic platforming. The Sonics are the Action portion of the game.

You're absolutely right. I still think something like this could happen though. I mean the Werehog was made after all. This game could have been originally planned to be Generations 2 but somehow it wound up being shorter than the first game so they decided to add a slow character in as filler. I think this is possible. I'm hoping it's not the case but who knows. It might be fun if New guy can at least run as fast as Sonic in Lost World and the puzzles worth well.

Raving_Cute
Raving_Cute

So I just had a crazy dream about Sonic Forces that I had to write down.

The game is open world and starting up, the first character you play as is Amy. She's just been told that Sonic's been found after essentially being assumed dead for years, and she runs to the spot where you're supposed to meet up with him. I can't remember what happened after that, but I was eventually playing as Sonic. Both Amy and Sonic were designed like they were in Boom.

The new gameplay element is Cyberization. Yes, from the comics. Part of the "Forces" theme is that playable characters can take on semi-Roboticized parts of their body to improve their abilities. However, there's a catch. It can spread to your entire body after a time limit, and if it does that, Game Over. You can remove parts and restore your Mobian body, but it costs a lot of rings. To get the best ending, you have to not use any parts at all, but the game is brutally hard if you don't.

So I has a bit of a shower thought about 06 and I was curious if anyone agrees with me. I know a popular sentiment about Sonic 06 was that if it was not rushed and the devs were given something along the lines of another year to work on the game, it could have been great.

I don't feel like that's the case, though. If the devs had more time, I don't think the final game would be all that better - I think the game would have less bugs and be more stable for sure, but a lot of the poor game design choices would still be in the game, I'd imagine. Look at how huge and long some of Sonic's levels are for example, with loading screens jarring you completely out of any kind of flow you'd be getting into. Sonic 06's awful stage design filled with enemies that need to be hit a certain number of times that make the game damn near feel like a brawler (in Shadow's case at least) and I don't think these design decsisions would have been dramatically changed if the devs had, say, another year to work on the game. I still think it would have bombed overall.

What do you guys think? Gonna be afk for while but I'm interesting in hearing your thoughts.

farquit

The game was poorly conceived from the get go and with Naka leaving and the team being splintered with the Wii development, there was no way the game was going to be good. Rushed or not.

I'm sure third character will be a make-your-character. Dramatic minimalistic naked view from back character is ALWAYS a shitty player avatar.
It will be like Xenoverse, a shitty story, zero interesting choices for your avatar, and all characters acting retarded like "oh <insert name> you're so smart and dependable and you smell so good". And nerds will go on how it was good and how the multiplayer or something. Yeah I hate Xenoverse.

It was too ambitious, and even for how unfinished it was, it was still 'complete' in the sense that the level designs and story were mostly as intended in terms of design and structure, albeit not stability. Polishing out the bugs could've made some things better, polishing the controls/speeds could've fixed others, but from the ground up, the very design was fundamentally flawed and would require serious reworking of the project overall to fix them.

That unity remake is neat and I wouldn't mind seeing it get modded, but it's really more of a novelty than anything.

farquit

I think the levels were made to be aesthetically impressive with little effort put into making their level design equally enjoyable.

06 levels are amazingly beautiful. I just wish maybe a fourth of that effort had gone into smoothing out the difficulty curves and making exploration actually fun instead.

Don't, seriously. Unless you make a RPG with a whole parallel setting so you can get the building up that makes the OC earn the respect of canon character, something which is impossible in other types of games.

I'm guessing for convenience they'll play the same no matter what he/she looks like. The customness of the characters being purely cosmetic.

So that still brings the question of how the'll play.

maybe they'll be a slower platform style, like boom redone?

They mentioned Forces meant armies and power, you could interpret that in different ways.
maybe they have some energy power, like lighting?
or maybe something to do with Time?
or controlling armies of robots?

I'm not crying over anything, I don't think the game will be bad. But if from now on we can have a whole series dedicated to class Sonic, a whole series dedicated to modern Sonic, and maybe other characters getting spotlight in spin off games here and there, with a clear goal and direction set from day 1, that would probably be good enough to bring the series from "alright" back to great.

From a character design standpoint, I think it was just to up his menace factor and present him as sort of scary despite being a human non-Eggman character in Sonic. It just came across as hilariously cheesy to me though, coupled with his backstort and overall personality.

I would be fine with new characters being introduced if they didn't keep the old characters around. Mario introduces new characters all the fucking time, but other than spinoffs and party games, they don't come back without a purpose.

Sonic Forces is internet guild-based, hence the name
Complete side missions to get your custom faction growing

Mario can obviously do that a lot more easily because they don't need to explain shit.

But then again it never even really feels like the Sonic games care about explaining shit so...

Fanwank but I consider Silver to not be an actual person but the timestream's equivalent of a white blood cell. Every crisis just pops out a new one.

Hopefully Friday we'll get some new info/footage to get a better idea of what we're in for with Forces.

Stop posting Noel..or should I call you Saya now?
Silver is more or less a time cop, he shows up whenever he wants, Colors established that and so did Runners just like both games showed that Blaze can travel to Sonic's dimension whenever she wants via sol emeralds. Kinda sloppy writing, if they wanted to keep them around they should of had Sonic and Blaze's worlds merge without a problem and Silver just say in the this timeline since he likes it. Just like how Gemerl is still with Vanilla to this day, he's there even in the comics

Only because we lost potential Classic, Modern, and Boom Eggman banter.

I am neither those, I'm just an Observer from this world that appreciate him and will remember him.
What if you see a third Sonic being playable?

I know I am, a create a character sue that will probably die or never be mentioned again after this? I'd rather Roger times 2 than this. It's like a monkey's paw with Sega. Want original arc, sure, but now the comic is shitcanned before said arcs could get off the ground, want new sonic by based taxman, sure but now nearly all the levels are old shit because SEGA forced it on them, Don't want Boom Sonic because Boom games suck, sure but now you get this piece of shit plotfag character.

To be honest I don't think Japanese devs would be able to write Boom characters correctly.
