    You're not alone. It's still early days, but I'm seeing most of the new stuff as a net positive. The redesigns are lazy and not nearly bold or coherent enough, but the overall direction has some nuggets of promise.

    Well that settles it: the biggest problem of the redesigns is they are too damn busy. It'd be like if the Kingdom Hearts Disney characters became official designs for everything Disney. People would lose a comparable amount of shit.

    Should we make a new thread for the game or just keep everything related to the BOOM series in here?

    HD trailer and some screens:

    For what is whorty, I really like the graphics. They have that surreal feeling I've always loved. My only dislike is the redesigns, but whatever I can live with it.

    Sub-franchise that is it's own universe? A guy from Sega confirming that this is not replacing the Sonic franchise? Well that's a relief. I was thinking of doing what AerosolSP did and "respectfully bow out of the franchise" but if this seriously is it's own separate and isolated thing designed to promote and market Sonic to children and as others have speculated get Sega out of that commercially disastrous Nintendo partnership then well good for them. I'm really glad this game is being outsourced to an American studio because it leaves Sonic Team free to develop the real Sonic game that has been previously rumoured for PS4/Xbox One in 2015.

    So yeah I'm not done with this franchise just yet. Colours was beautiful and amazing and Generations was just awesome so that gives me hope that Sonic Team still has the skill and talent to produce something amazing for the next generation consoles. Honestly this entire Nintendo partnership and Sonic Boom reboot justs come across as a temporary financially motivated side project at this point. Lost World seemed to be rushed in development and release and even this game seems half-hearted in terms of giving the work to an unknown studio. I just Sonic Team truly does have something great on the horizon that we'll see soon.

    Sonic Boom will sell just as terribly as Lost World due to the Wii U's small userbase so hopefully Sega will just firmly go multi-platform moving forward.

    A huge relief that this is a separate universe. Good job splintering the franchise even more though..

    Watching the show clip, I can see where they're going with the show vibe, and it's not that terrible, really - very Colours-esque in cutscene vibe. Something's weird about Sonic's head and I can't quite put my finger on it, but Tails and Robotnik both look fine.

    Okay, I really, really love this. The redesigns for Sonic and Knuckles are kind of meh, but I love the new Robotnik, the game looks better than Lost World and the writing of the series sounds really fun.

    Also, is it me or does Burnbot look like a mix between Omega and Egg Dragoon?
