If SEGA ever brings back the Adventure formula (which at this point I hope it happens, so we can go a year without people demanding it to come back) they need to bring back people who's worked on the Adventure games as level designers & directors, etc.

Considering that Sonic has gotten his ass kicked numerous times in the past & has needed his friends to help him before, no.

or you know, get people who actually understand good level design instead of hacks training inexperienced people. Odyssey was made by a young team, it's not like Miyamoto was in 100% control. Sonic CAN be good, it just needs talent and a director with a solid vision. I know, easier said then done but you're SEGA's mascot ffs, it's like you're not even trying.

You're not wrong about the segmenting of fanbase and stuff but Boom failed for reasons outside its control, it was basically sabotaged. I can imagine it becoming the 4th group in the argument of what game play style is better had it done really well though.

I wonder what it would have been like if Boom was just a Boost game but with the Boom cast and stuff.

Fair point. I guess it's just a matter of them not being interested, or only planning on doing it if the Boost formula stops being a winning formula for them. Giving Forces mixed reception compared to Colors & Gens positive, it's likely only a matter of time before they go back to it.

I assume getting a job at Sega isn't as great as it use to be back when they made consoles. During the Dreamcast era they pretty much took all the talent they had and made them heads of various subdivisions in an attempt to bleed as much content as possible. Got an idea? just do it, that's why Dreamcast games are so weird.

Pretty sure Sonic isn't really a top priority because he's no longer a console mascot and Sega really doesn't need him anymore. As a result Sonic Team will have ambitious ideas but time constraints, budget, and inexperience tend to always get in the way. To Sega it doesn't really matter the quality because he's got a fanbase that can sustain itself.

Like I said, Sonic isn't a priority because the fanbase can sustain him no matter what. "Voting with your wallet" can be risky because Sega could just see it as people no longer wanting Sonic games all together. The fanbase is trapped in a situation where they know the games aren't that good but if they don't buy them Sega will just ditch the franchise like every other sega ip that didn't sell.

There could always be one guy who could think that, but what matters at the end of the day is whether or not the top brass at SEGA thinks that.

Given the fact that they have other franchises (Hatsune Miku, Yakuza, Puyo Puyo, Football Manager, etc.) it wouldn't be too surprising if they're to afraid to axe the series.

That being said, Sonic is still quite the moneymaker for them, so who knows.

Sega's a business and Sonic is only supported because it sells. To them quality can only be indicated through sales. Yeah SOME will think good game = good sales but to the higher ups profit is all that matters otherwise the company will go bankrupt. If Mania outsells Forces then Sega will see it and ask Sonic Team to make a 2d Sonic game. Whether or not that's good or bad is up to you.

I am going to get crap for this, but I really do think if we got "Sonic Advance 4" instead of "Mania 2" that would be a far better thing for the series as a whole. Why not just make a more ambitious 2D game that wasn't trying to look like a Classic game?

Supergrass
Supergrass

Infinite and Shadow are both antagonists that rival Sonic in physical ability, have some kind of backstory that lead to them becoming villains, and serve as Eggman's MVP until a certain turning point in the story. They aren't perfectly identical but it's clear that they made him in order to try and capture the spirit of Shadow.

I agree really, but as long as the game is good I think it's fine.

If they did make Mania 2 I would want them to spice it up a bit beyond only having new zones. Maybe go beyond Genesis graphics Saturn grafix?

BlogWobbles
BlogWobbles

Infinite only rivals Sonic in capability due to his usage of the Phantom Ruby, however. I can kinda see where you're coming from, but I don't think it's more than just coincidence. Not to mention that Infinite was never really a good guy to begin with, due to being a merc.

I think an Advance/Mania hybrid could work. I would love to see the sprite style & animations & roster from the Advance trilogy return, with the level design similar to Mania.

What's the fastest way to rank up the OCs in Forces?

Methshot
Methshot

Would a Mania 2 even sell well? I assumed the reason Mania sold well was because it got a lot of exposure to non-Sonic fans. People made a huge deal about it being the first classic Sonic game in 23 years. Would people care as much about a sequel? Plus, unless you're Pokemon, you have to add tons of new features every game. People would go apeshit if they added anything new to Mania 2 unless it's something small like the Drop Dash.

Sonic Mania is the Mega Man 9 of Sonic games. It's good but you need to expand upon it in order for it to survive. Capcom fucked up and Mega Man 10 was exactly the same. The hype wasn't there and as a result it didn't sell as well.

I don't know user, anybody got that edit of the "better than nothing" tweet that also has Forces score lower than Mighty's?

Unpopular opinion...
I would like it if Dr.Eggman's Current English Voice Actor left just as all of the other 4kids cast have and replaced with someone new.
His Eggman Voice just hurts my ears. I don't ever even picture him with a high pitch voice. I rather have some voice actor that gives him a low menacing voice even while still carrying a sadistic charm of megalomania to him.

I'm sure they could find a better Bristow impersonator.
You're correct about his pitch, but also the way Eggman is written these days wouldn't help. He's become comic relief rather than being menacing villain, so it probably isn't worth it.

No thanks, at the end of the day Eggman is still a total goon who messes up his own plan 90% of the time.

Why they don't make a Chao Garden game for mobile for some cash on the side? I don't know.

But the reason why they don't add a Chao Garden to the main games seem obvious to me. It would not draw in enough people to make it worth the time and money it would take to make and add in. I know everyone goes on about how much that would make a Sonic game sell but the issue is it's Sonic fans saying that, Sonic fans that are already buying the games that don't have a Chao Garden and buying them new at that. Sure, maybe a couple older people that left the franchise might come back to check it out but that'd be it. There is no reason to bait the hook, the fish is in the boat.

He can be fairly menacing in Forces. In fact I feel like his evil mad genius scientist part was played too straight without much in the way of goofiness outside of one scene, like he comes to odds with the rest of the game's.. inconsistent tone.
But then Mike Pollock's honestly had the most range with a single character and is the only long-standing VA since fucking 2005, so it comes with experience I suppose.

Its Chaos. He is angry that the Chao and his lively hood is in trouble.
He is a Chao grown up fully matured and enshrined in the Master Emerald since days of old.
There is a reason why Sonic says that. The visions that Tikal shared with him gave him the knowledge of what happened to him and seeing the mural within the pyramid gave him insight to what Chaos is truly capable of.

I enjoy them despite their flaws, the X-Men Legends games too though they're a bit more rough around the edges which is understandable given they came out first. No idea if there's a phone/tablet versions of any of them though. Just keep in mind that any unique equipment you get in the game you only get once that save file. So even if you sell it or lose it somehow it'll never drop again on that save, not even in new game+.

My friend proposed the idea yesterday that Amy was meant to be a girl who made Sonic look cool by being his fangirl and showing that he was too cool for that. She said that in Japanese pop culture this is what is considered a cool trait to heroes.

Sonic actually "dies" at the start of Forces, and the game is all Avatar and Classic Sonic until the very end with the game being a meta and in-game narrative about "saving Sonic". Final stage is an Adventure-style stage for Modern Sonic with boost segments sprinkled in followed by a Super Sonic/Classic Sonic/Avatar fight. Beating the game unlocks more Modern Sonic stages. Does this fix Forces?

Firespawn

Well to add onto that, she brought up that Elise was meant to be the ideal love interest for Sonic. As much as we find her boring, you can see how she has traits of the typical Japanese ideal wife material. She hypothesized that part of the reason we saw Sonic start to reciprocate in Unleashed and Black Knight and just generally be far nicer to Amy was done either as an apology for how bad Elise was and to ensure that Sonic didn't end up in a controversial relationship again.

You can see evidence of the latter with the Archie comic restrictions, where the only girl Sonic is allowed to show any romantic interest in is Amy.

No. Almost, but no. Instead of Sonic "dying", keep the whole "Sonic got captured" piece, but have him break out on his own. Jump back and forth between Classic and Avatar trying to save him and Sonic himself trying to escape the Infinite's VR bullshit to get off the Death Egg. That way Sonic doesn't feel like a bonus in his own game, you get Modern stages throughout, and Infinite's wacky reality powers are front and center. It ends with Classic and Avatar making it to the Death Egg, joining up with Sonic, and having their final showdown against Eggman on the Death Egg, using the power of the emeralds to return safely to the Earth below in reference to S2/S3&K.

Kind of defetas the purpose of having the big reveal of the final stage being in the Adventure style if you play that type of stage the whole game. How about in Infinite's VR world he's constantly making Sonic fight 3D bosses from the series' history, instead of actual stages?

I've noticed that the writers/directors seem to be melding the personalities of the Boom characters with their mainline counterparts. This seems to be rubbing off on the actors as well, as indicated by the recent Twitter Takeover stunt. Either the actors prefer the exaggerated personalities from Boom, or they just don't realize that they should be separating their roles between continuities. Shadow is the most obvious example of this imo.

Emberburn

IIRC this was because it only had shading hardware for gouraud ("standard" per-pixel) shading and "deferred" shading, basically fake post-processing shading done by the cpu.

No. She wants Bowser, which is why she's always being "kidnapped" but her 'shroom society and social standing as princess of her kingdom will never allow her to be with the big lizard properly, so she has to act out a big farce to spend quality time with him.

Honestly it's really selective. Some of the cutscene animation is super subpar, though that can be chalked up to the game basically having just over a year of development. When the animation is good, it stands out a lot.

The QTE segments especially get a notable bump in animation quality, it's heads and shoulders above the rest of the game's animation and actually remind me a lot stylistically of stuff like the CGI opening to Unleashed but in real-time.

I came up with a crazy idea. So we're never going to get a proper Mario/Sonic crossover game. We're only going to get party games. But what if instead of the Olympics series, we got like a Mario & Sonic Slumber Party Games? Instead of sports you do stuff you do at a slumber party like get pizza out of the fridge while your friend's parents are sleeping, Ouija board and pendulum, light as a feather stiff as a board, fist fight over who gets to play as Yoshi in Mario Party 3, stare into the bathroom mirror and chant "Bloody Mary Bloody Mary give us a sign", spoopy ghost stories, etc. I'd play that. I just figured since Mario and Sonic are good friends and probably teenagers they would probably have some really fun sleepovers

I always get the feeling that one of the best choices for a Sonic game would be to have a game that plays it very safe in the gameplay department, but focuses on being ambitious in its presentation. Like have the Mania teams make a time skip or some other game with some effort and risks put into the writing and design, while having the safety net knowing that it will be fun to play and look at.

If Sonic Forces was trying to do this it failed.

Tails' scifi glasses look lame, Sonic's scarf really doesn't need the pink bits, and you can get rid of the red and green on Knuckles' bands and keep the designs as etchings in the gold.

Amy and Cream look great, but scrap Rouge's design entirely.

You a literally fucking deluded and retarded if you think Sonic Forces has good music. There is not a SINGLE memorable track from the game that isn't a remix from an older game. Forces soundtrack is 1/10 and the one point is only thanks to the music in Episode Shadow.

Come to think of it I heard Jun Senoue was helping out with the remixes, so it figures that it's the only good music in the game. That man is a god amongst musicians.

Streaming it daily. Failing at missions. Replaying stages. Grinding for 100K rings. Unlocking every fucking thing in it. Getting 3rd in one of the stages leaderboards (not there anymore but hey I can say I was)
At least it wasn't much grindy as Lost World was in completing it.

Just play the game (the game remembers it) and go into Daily Missions. Turn off the game it should be normal. If not then you just have to wait to do more missions/stuff related to achievoo.
