    Completely agreed. While stories can get a bit extreme sometimes, say in Shadow or 06, I like it that the big titles have a proper plot to go along with them. Most of this would be very difficult to portray without speaking. And if that speaking was reduced to something Zelda-style or removed altogether to be Mario-style, I'd be so upset.

    The titles "Live and Learn", "Open Your Heart", and "No One Is An Island" strangely fit well together.

    I don't want Sonic to be a silent character, but I do want the games to put a larger focus on pantomime and silent story-telling - if Sonic does speak, then can they at least try a little harder to have him actually sound like a cocky, smarmy bad-ass teenager? Martin Burke, you can do it! We'll even ship you over from Potato-Land, free of charge.

    ^ I'm saying to expect a time that's just a teensy bit more neutral than "noon on the dot." Three, four, you know. About the same time the Sonic Colors blog post went up. Unless they flat-out said noon, of course, but I haven't heard that myself.

    If that were true they would stop making Sonic game after Sonic game, actually put time and effort into development to the point where people actually miss their titles until they show up again, and then make massive profits off having a quality product.

    Wat.


    That would make them lose money in comparison. Sega charges the same amount of money a game, regardless how shitty they are, and just as many people will buy it. Remember %90 of Sonic's fanbase are retarded children who will take Shadow the Hedgehog as a topnotch game.

    Not that I was being really serious or anything.

    Way to completely ignore your own post though! You know, the time-zone retort thing.

    The time-zone thing is the reason I said to expect a more neutral time. You know, 'cause half the bloody fanbase is still rubbing sleep out of their eyes at this point.

    Not that I was being totally serious, either. But I guess that's what I get for being too sleepy to add the :v: emoticon.

    Well, in theory, if games were higher-quality, they'd get mass amounts of sales from the gaming community and the same mass amounts of sales from the little kiddies they currently cater to, meaning a potentially higher profit, not to mention more sales and re-releases of individual games down the road, meaning even more profit later, et cetera, et cetera (you know, basically the same thing they're still doing with the classics now).

    In theory, anyway. I have a certain level of doubt as to Sonic's ability to reclaim credibility with the general gaming community so as to make that theory a reality, should they ever try it. It'd be a shame if they made The Best Fucking Game Ever Made™ and didn't sell enough copies because the last two games sucked ass and put off too many potential buyers from trying the new one, now, wouldn't it?

    My understanding was that Sonic sales have been declining since Sonic Heroes, actually, but since there's hardly solid numbers to go by, I could be wrong. Sonic 2006, by all accounts, wasn't exactly a success at retail, at least at launch.
     
  19. They're likely to announce this at 4 o'clock (UTC+1), because that's when America is waking up and when Britain is in the afternoon. That's what they usually do with these announcements.
     
  20. <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Platinum_Hits#Games_in_Platinum_Hits_for_Xbox_360_series" target="_blank">2006 is a Platinum Hits title</a>, though I'm not sure if that means anything.
