I guess I better stop shitposting and get some thoughts out. -Yes, the trailer was sparse and didn't really show much. I think the environments are pretty, and I like the nonlinear world design. That's not really a big deal to me, because the lack of substance at least did not condemn the game in any way. -Morio Kishimoto has an inconsistent history. I love Colors and like Lost World, and Forces is, if nothing else, perfectly playable. I think it's not a great idea to judge based on his presence here, since this is a kind of game that just physically is not and can not be built in the way the games people complain about were. You cannot move through this world with Forces' controls. There is no blocky 2D platforming in a game that, as far as we know, has no 2D sections. -That does not and should not for anyone confirm the game as amazing, but I think it's worth noting that an all or mostly 3D Sonic game with a different art style to Lost World and big open level design without blocky platforming and Ian Flynn writing is checking a lot of "Sonic fan demand" boxes and it's downright naive to dismiss it as more of the same we've been getting. -What this trailer does do is confirm the first leak is at least somewhat true, and what that leak described was just inherently different from anything we've seen in the last several years. So I'm interested. I want to see what some of those "cyberspace" levels are. -I am so happy to hear Ian Flynn is writing the game. I know he probably won't have 100% "do whatever you want" story control, but he can make Sonic's cast so endearing and won't give us any of the "cringe" moments from...well, the entire rest of the franchise up until this game. -The anger over Sonic's model and pose is so hilariously dumb I hope they keep using them for every game just to piss you weirdos off On the contrary. On SSMB (and to a lesser extent, here), I see mostly positive or neutral reactions, but there's four or five people that just post really fast and get quoted by others, which makes it look like a general atmosphere of cynicism is more present than it is.
