    Trapped in my own thoughts.
    Two stageplays, a screenplay, and an album
    The main reason this trailer excites me is that now SEGA is not simply *saying* that they listen to fan feedback, but actually showing that they're taking it to heart. I can't wait to see if and how this mindset shows in aspects of the game itself beyond a CG trailer.

    Here's all the information I can actually share from sources. Obviously since I can't cite them, you can either take it or leave it, but if you know me, you know I have some legit contacts and know what I'm talking about.

    Does alternate costumes refer to Modern, Classic, etc.? That would be awesome... but I'm curious how far it can go... SA2? Heroes? '06? *shutter*

    Levels from every major Sonic game sounds fine by me, its good to have confirmation :thumbsup:

    I hope remade means it takes the design, but not the level design at the same time (or revamped so much the original layout is near impossible to notice).

    ..Costumes? :v:

    "Costumes", eh? Hmm....interesting. I'd be rather interested in seeing more info on this, and of course seeing some of the Sonic designs that'll be used.

    I really dig the remade levels thing. Chemical Plant and Starlight Zone. That's all I ask (okay, Scrap Brain would be pretty awesome too).

    Not sure about Heroes, the whole team aspect of the game would be missing, and it doesn't have many memorable levels

    And alternate costumes? Oh god, they are so going to put Mr. Needlemouse in there :v:

    I could get around alternate "costumes"... however I hope that doesn't erase any possible epic storyline that could be made from this. I really wish for the encounter of classic and modern Sonic to happen.

    Plus I hope that doesn't mean classic Sonic will play verbatim to modern Sonic, thus playing verbatim to Unleashed. While that would be mostly fine, classic Sonic would feel somewhat out of place without his rolling and Spindash techniques. :ohdear:

    <span style='color:#000000;background:#000000'>Also, for alternate costumes: I vote for Mr. Needlemouse, Sonicman, that realistic joke design from the SA1 dev pictures, Wentos, Ashura, and Somari =V</span>

    Manly tears have been shed today. I seriously can't believe how good Classic Sonic looks in 3D, it's mind blowing.

    What other games besides Sonic 1, 2, 3, Knuckles, CD, 3D Blast, Adventure, Adventure 2, Unleashed, and Colors would be considered "major?"

    What I expected, happy to hear "several" as opposed to keeping it simply "Classic" and "Modern." Hoping for alt. characters as well, maybe even other carnations of Sonic, such as him wearing soap shoes etc.

    Does anyone else feel like Classic Sonic looks like a mix of Sonic 2 and Sonic X-Treme?

    I think it's amazing that after constant demands for the return of Classic Sonic, SEGA have given in to the fanbase and whilst it's not Sonic 4, it's going to be something better yet appropriate at the same time.

    They've done a good job on the model, keeping details faithful to the original design. If Trunks is mentioning more "models", I'd assume they would simply be a recreation of the respective game, such as Soap Shoes Sonic for Adventure 2 levels, etc.

    MIDI-to-SMPS-conversions, mostly. Takin' requests, too.
    You can pretty much forget about the Soap-Shoes unless SEGA actually can be bothered completely renewing that advertising deal with Soap themselves.

    I was referring to it in reference to the costumes :)

    Alternative costumes, eh? I wonder if they'll have a Tails or Knuckles costume. :P

    We know too little about how the game is even going to play or who you'll play as to guess how the costumes factor in. The simplest possible scenario we already know: Sonic is a character, and he has two costumes: Uekawa-Modern and Oshima-Classic.

  18. Costumes? Interesting...
    Is it just skins? Maybe they're gonna pull a Megaman Universe and have each iteration of Sonic a trademark move or specialty like Classic Sonic shield powers/ roll and Unleashed Sonic boost... <!--coloro:#000000--><span style="color:#000000"><!--/coloro-->And '06 Sonic's horrendous physics <!--colorc--></span><!--/colorc--> =P

    Oh, right. SEGA loves that game too, I wouldn't be surprised to see something from it in this game too.

    Oh hey, maybe we'll see Sonic Spinball levels. Toxic Caves or Lava Powerhouse anyone?

    I personally wouldn't mind seeing some sweet Sonic 1 SMS levels. How about the handhelds? Any great stages you'd want to see reimagined in 3D? Mecha Green Hill Zone maybe?
