    If character creation means I can go in and like, just make Tails, and play as Tails in a mainline Sonic game for the first time in over a decade, maybe it isn't so bad. Even if it is just cosmetic.

    That's kind of my thought to the whole situation. I don't care about fan characters, so I could create someone that looks just like Knuckles or Sonic or whatever and then pretend I'm playing as that character. But if someone likes fan characters they can make their own. And if someone just wants to make dank-memes come to life then that's an option too.

    Really no one loses (in this circumstance anyway. Not going to touch the boost argument).

    EDIT OMG YOU CAN MAKE A CHARACTER

    You know when you're playing DragonBall Xenoverse and you see a Namekian with Super Saiyan Blue hair and sunglasses and it activates your inner cringe response even if you know it's satire? I'm worried that's the kinds of characters people are going to make.
    I was right by saying that the 3rd character might as well be Bubsy if it's a character creator, though :V Really, it's not the end of the world. The only thing that might be bad is the creativity of a few.
    That being said, I still worry about the bulk of the main content of the game. This can be fun and all, but it's not my main attraction. But I can see why they'd do this, it's easy to market and it has demand. Plus, people always say x character didn't make it into the game.

    If you'll need me, I'll be in the bunkers. I can smell the storm all the way from here.

    Fuck, this really makes me cringe. I can't wait for all the crappy OC characters. I'm still hopeful for the gameplay, but ehhhhhh.

    At least someone can make Bubsy be a thing in this now.
     
  10. I'm kind laughing. Can't blame Sega for catering to this audience, I guess, but I bust hope they keep the Mania team on retainer

    Here's the destructoid article with more information. The biggest draw though is this. Here are the animals you can be and what powers they'll have:

    Wolf -- Automatically draws in rings when near them

    Rabbit -- Has longer invincible time after receiving damage

    Cat -- Keeps one ring after being hit

    Dog -- Restarts with five rings after the player dies

    Bear -- Blows away enemies with a homing attack

    Bird -- Flies high with double jump abilities

    Hedgehog -- Collects rings when getting damaged

    They use wisps as like weapon power ups or something. Well then looks like I'm making Sonic 3. Make sense I guess that they chose animals not commonly represented in Sonic games. But you could maybe make Blaze.

    I see they've been learning from Sonic Dreams Collection, maybe we can get Eggman Origin too at some point?

    This looks kinda fun, but can I ask what's going on with the anime theme music?

    Squirrel is not an option? Oh well, I can proably use the cat base to make a Sally Lookalike.

    The Wolf Base looks like a good one for Knack too.

    I didn't expect this to actually happen holy shit
    It looks like you can have feminine traits on your character, so that's kind of nice at least.
    It might be neat and kinda funny if on the Switch you could use a Mii head or something. Just running around with a horrible bobblehead attached to a Sonic body
