    All of that looked absolutely incredible. There looks like there are so many branching paths in each stage, even the 3D ones. Wow.

    They absolutely nailed those levels.
     
  2. Really taken aback by how glorious Modern Sky Sanctuary is... a lot more 3D platforming than I was expecting, some areas were also surprisingly open. Classic Seaside Hill was awesome as well, really digging the Hydrocity feel during the underwater sections.

    Did anyone see that little glowing yellow thing after the kart section? The one off to the left?

    Could that possibly be an emerald?
     
  4. I think that was just a checkpoint being passed through

    Did Aaron Webber seriously just say the physics in Sonic 4 were better than the Genesis games?

    I do not envy the position you're in, Mr. Eclipse.

    Ah, you're right. My mistake.

    Didn't even occur to me that there was a checkpoint there.

    I'm in the process of uploading the entire video to YouTube. Currently at 90% uploaded with about 12 minutes to go.... ;)

    EDIT: Well shit, I was beaten to it. Ah well.... Here's a link to mine anyway.

    Um...No.

    He said Classic Sonic's physics in Generations are better than Sonic 4's.

    On my butt in front of the computer. Where else?
    I'm working on working up the willpower to work on learning how to make my own Sonic fangames. Not quite there yet.
    Yeah, I'm agreeing with the general consensus on Sky Sanctuary Modern looking epic. It could totally suck, though, if Modern's 3D platforming control isn't up for it.

    Seaside Hill is looking a lot less like a second Green Hill now that I've seen it in action.

    Hoping for the DLC "Saturn Era" with re-imagined zones from Sonic 3D Blast, Sonic R and Sonic X-Treme. :v:

    Keep hoping... or trolling, I can't tell. That'll never happen.

    More realistically I want a level from Sonic 3. Oh and also, did anyone notice in the Weber video the little Sega Genesis floating around the GHZ hub area? Guess that's how you play Sonic 1.

    I don't want to watch any of the full levels, but I watched the video for the hub world and I'm really happy with how they pulled it off. Originally I kind of wanted an individual hub for each level ala Unleashed and was kinda upset at the strictly 2D perspective, but it just seems so fluid and fun. It doesn't look like the best most fun hub in a game ever, but for what this game is trying to accomplish it gets the job done perfectly. Little things like the Chaotix music playing in Sonic's house is cool too, the fact that they're referencing such an obscure game just shows how much love is being poured into this game. Let's hope future enstallments have as much dedication put into them as this, this game really is setting the standard for how Sonic games should play and who they should/could be marketed towards.

    I can't believe how freaking good this game looks, I really do want to pick this up on release day but I'm still hoping for a newer demo first.

    making cool music no one gives a shit about
    Classic and Modern Sonics would have had equal rep if this had happened.

    Siiiiiiiiiiigh.

    Ya I don't know what that was, like what's the point? It has to reference something...

    I've seen people compare it to the tubes in Hydrocity, though I'd say it's more similar to this.
