I am so psyched, and I love both Sonic models! I wonder what gameplay format they will use? Fingers crossed for modified Colours gameplay,

Something I was typing right before the previous thread was locked:
QUOTE (Rockman Zero @ Apr 7 2011, 03:55 PM)
Add: I also think that Classic would be a good comedic foil for Modern.

I agree! Could you imagine a modern style cutscene-- with voice acting all around-- this grandiose scene of magnificent importance occuring, and Classic Sonic just standing still and looking forward as it all happens (I'm thinking the "cutscenes" in Sonic 3 and Knuckles)? Finally, Modern Sonic says, "Aren't you going to say anything... Sonic?!" And Classic Sonic turns slightly and cocks his head, without a change of expression.

Hmm. I certainly would like that sort of comedic flair to it, but only if Modern Sonic shuts it once in a while. And I wonder whether or not we'll be seeing other characters make an appearance, playable or otherwise.

You know, considering how well they did with Colors' writing compared to all previous games, and considering the comedic goldmine they're sitting on with having TWO SONICS running around, I'd be surprised if this game doesn't make me bust a gut a few times. It's not necessary—this isn't a movie—but it would be an awfully nice treat.

Question, why create a new thread instead of just using the old one?

Anyway, since the previous one got locked.

My opinion on multiple paths is that Sonic Team should look at their own work with Kingdom Valley act 1, that I can remember that level had at least 3 distinct ways to reach the goal ring/eagle after the first crumbling bridge, and a lot of goodies if you cared to explore a bit.

Boy, this reminds me why I have to pay closer attention to these new Sonic games.

The appearance of classic Sonic was an excellent little surprise. Being a member of the camp that prefers the old model (not that I hate the new one), I've always wanted to see it in 3D. I'm extremely excited. I cannot wait to see more of this.

This. When I heard comedy writers with some pretty high pedigrees were writing for Colors, I started to get some high hopes, just to have them dashed by Sonic talking too much and him being not that funny, with a few exceptions.

The idea of Classic Sonic being a foil to Modern's derpiness would be hilarious, I think, but only if they off-set the humor with a bit of "coolness." Not seriousness, but CD-esque coolness, like what we saw in the opening for Colors. Humor working is all about the quality of the writing. Which should be kept to a minimum.

Wow this is quite the surprise. I never thought I'd see the classic design come back in my life time.

I hope they don't give Classic Sonic a voice. Keep him mute SEGA. No one liked anything that bastard Modern Sonic ever said.

If only they could do this: Classic Sonic using cartoon violence to get Modern to shut up. I can honestly see this happening. I can already guarantee we're going to see a lot of inside jokes from Retro involving "green-eyes," "fat Sonic," and Classic Sonic being a mute.

It'd be just as hilarious as Mario being mute in Super Mario RPG.

They'll give him the voice of the bastard love child of Mickey Mouse and Felix the Cat.

So far I'm tickled, but still not particularly excited. Sure, they have a model of a classic styled Sonic, but what does that even mean? As usual, I find myself thinking that they locked in on the wrong problem for their trailer, since while I'm seeing zogm classic Sonic, I'm still seeing yet another green hill zone and what they do show is painfully empty.

So yeah, bottom line is we still know nothing... as is par for the course coming off of an early Sonic trailer. Almost makes this topic pointless.

Classic Sonic—little pudgy beady-eyed younger Sonic—laying a beating on someone? Possibly Modern Sonic for being an overly talkative buffoon?

I MUST SEE THAT NOW.

I'm hoping that Modern Sonic is possibly there just for comparison, and that the whole game will center around Classic Sonic. End result is SEGA pulls a Mega Man by separating the two and making games for both. (not really speculating, just hoping v.png )

Or something.

I think the jist of my hope is caught.

It's fantastic to see SEGA finally recognising the classic Sonic design after all these years!

I'm curious as to what a "classic Tails" will look like in 3D compared to today's look (or even a classic Knuckles, but I seriously doubt it) - that is, if he's even on this game!

But a classic Eggman/Robotnik would be EPIC cool!

The problem with that is that it will just be fuel to the fire that is the Modern vs Classic Sonic debate, and we really don't want that... right?

Ah, who am I kidding...

All in good time. Let's see how SEGA plays their hand with this game first, then we'll see if we still care. I probably won't
