    Shit, I still think if they were even to just make a 2.5D game with the engine from Unleashed, it'd kick ass. This is definitely a step in the right direction.

    Advance series were 2D and they weren't masterpieces. It's not like HD sprites would fix those inherent flaws either. Saying Sonic needs to return to 2D will fix the franchise like many review sites like to rant about it's one of the things that most annoy me because in truth, that only shows how much these people don't know what made the classics so good. I'm not trying to offend anyone, but Sonic was much more than just 2D. And Sonic Adventure worked in 3D so this all business doesn't excite me. There will be the relief that haters won't be able to use this as argument anymore, though they ignore everything else I've said before this sentence.

    About the models, probably 3D in a 3D environment. The spinning 3D model ring is a giveway. I hope they keep his SU model. That one is the best since the classics.

    About the trailer, it does mention speed, but Sonic also bounces around the corners, which may suggest that it might be closer to what we liked in 2D. I like to think the old SEGA scream may also help the classic feeling. The spindash seems to be back by the look of it, which is a good sign even if the game isn't better than any of the Advances. The logo is Sonic 1, so I'm already salivating for a remake.

    I'll be sad if they drop the 3D format entirely though. I liked SU's day time stages BECAUSE they merged 2D and 3D together very well (as far as making sense goes). Making the former work like the classics and the latter closer to what we had in SA (with better controls and weight).

    I may be a bit late for the photoshops and such of the logo and it's clearly got to be Sonic, but I can't help but wonder...why the hell is he wearing a witches hat?

    I'm really excited about this, but I now have images of some lame tacked on magic system o.o

    It's official, I've become more cynical than even I thought possible.

    I'm thinking it's due to the following -

    1) Light angle (most probable)
    2) Head orientation causing the left ear to be in a different position

    But people keep saying in comments on every other site I have been to that "Sonic's time has passed", "NOT ANOTHER ONE", and the most hated comment...

    THE SONIC CYCLE.

    How can I be happy about this...when others aren't?

    I hope to God that SEGA blows them all away.

    I hope so too, but ultimately, it's guilty until proven innocent with Sonic these days. Even 2K6 looked promising... way back when...

    I'm obviously taking a cautiously optimistic stance on this: I want it to be good, but I'm expecting it to be Sonic Rush on consoles, when what I really want is something like the Genesis games. *sigh*

    That being said, Sonic Rush on consoles is still a step in the right direction, so...

    About that! If that shows up or is even mentioned once throughout the course of this thread beyond this point in time, that user will be suspended for a minimum of at least one day. :)

    It's this, alright? The rays of light make it look like Sonic's got a freaky Chris Thorndyke head. It's just light; when overlaying the original Megadrive title screen, it's clear that they occupy IDENTICAL areas of space.

    As has been shown many times now.

    Might be a little too early to get excited or... not excited, I mean the video didn't even show any gameplay... I'll wait for that to decide.

    Somebody mentioned on IRC that the odd head angle could match up with a Chris Thorndyke figure. Mind you, our minds are made to compare things in such a way (like figures in clouds), so I'm not surprised.

    Actually, as an avid follower of Sega's Facebook, I can state without irony that they've begun to finally listen to what their fans think, as evidenced by Ryo's appearance in Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing (probably a reaction to all the "SHENMUE 3 PLZ" on unrelated announcements.

    It's not uncommon, especially on announcements regarding All-Stars Racing, for the vocal majority to bitch about how the only "good" Sonic games were the 16-bit era ones. I wouldn't rule it out that this was their market research here.
