    What? https://mobile.twitter.com/CFWhitehead/status/791384002280108033

    So, I guess they will be character's rival?

    Like...

    Sonic = Fang
    Tails = Bean
    Knuckles = Bark.

    Maybe? If so, it'd awesome.

    The same Sega that is too scared of people reactions and play too much safe to the point of wanting "Classic Zone Remixes" ?
    I really doubt it. It's nothing at all in the end, or at least the Act 2 Boss of that Zone, i bet.

    It's a secret!
    The difference is that classic Amy Rose was cute. Right, she's always been hunting Sonic around, but nowadays, since her cute looks have been changed and she's been made older, she now looks and acts outright like a destructive psychopath rather than the adorable obsessed dreamy fangirl that she used to be.

    EDIT: I hope they'll throw Fang in as a boss or something. If they limit it to just an eastern egg I'm gonna be upset.

    By the way, I love Knux's walking animation. Remember he's strong and thus heavy, but also naïve and goofy. The animation suits him just fine, in my opinion.

    Stating the obvious, but it needs to be said: Knux has a different starting location in Mirage Saloon 2 than Sonic and Tails have. We can assume what this means about the end of Act 1, which probably quells a lot of concerns throughout this topic about how Knuckles routes will be handled.

    Egg-Seltze-Ior

    That fucking pun.

    Also liking the Egg Baron paintings. Until that thing gets a name that's what I'm going to call it. Or maybe Egg Sheriff? All these nice touches though. Even gave the new roller badnik the garbage Sonic CD jump noise. Nice touch.

    And it sounds like Nack, Bark, and Bean are officially going to be called "The boys" from here on out. Brilliant.

    That's what I remember Amy to be like from magazines IIRC, with Sonic having a care free attitude towards her affections. I'm also quite fond of the artwork that convey's their personalities to one another.
     
  8. I love how Mirage Saloon looks. Whitehead and the crew are doing an awesome job. The fluidity of this game looks excellent!
    We can expect a lot of content of this team. This new zone is an example of that.
    Whitehead had a lot of previous ideas while working doing the remakes, and today he can work comfortably.

    I do not know if "The Boys" will make an appearance beyond those wanted posters. They appear as they did in Sonic Generations.
    However, the tweet leaves many doubts.

    - The startled expression Tails makes when Sonic starts moving again

    This game's main ingredient is pure, unadulterated love.

    Also, it warms my heart to see players reacting with surprise and laughter to most of the new gimmicks they come across. That's a surefire mark of fun level design.

    Can I please just some direct feed gameplay instead of these..."commentary" videos?

    Who the hell is Kinda Funny Games anyways and how did he of all people score an exclusive reveal like this?

    Trapped in my own thoughts.
    Two stageplays, a screenplay, and an album
    Kinda Funny is composed of former IGN staff. These guys have years- and even decades-old industry contacts and connections.

    Yea go to page 153, there are commentary-less videos of Tails, Knuckles, and Sonic/Tails gameplay.

    This might be unpopular but I think Tails looks really goofy and offputting when he's carrying Sonic.

    I'm pretty sure I remember him doing that in the Genesis games.

    Come to think of it, I do remember Tails breaking stuff with his tail rotors when flying in Sonic 2/3, but now I'm not sure if he could do the same with his feet.

    Mirage Saloon sounds like it belongs somewhere between Sonic 2 and CD. It's kinda has the beat or liveliness of the former, but with the jazzy, instrumental refinement of the latter. The tracks that come to mind are Oil Ocean and Collision Chaos (Past).

    And speaking of Spring Yard, I distinctly remember those rotating string of three spike balls from that zone. My memory's fuzzy.

    It's cool how they seem to float around you while navigating the terrain. Really nice improvement from the blue Sonic 1 roller that ignores it.

    That shit's great. Should be good fodder for let's plays.

    Thanks. I skipped a dozen or so pages so I missed that.

    Well explains that in more ways then 1. but I still feel they shouldn't have got an exclusive reveal.

    He could only destroy stuff with his tails, that's why we're pointing it out...


    By the way, I also think that Tails' face while carrying Sonic may be a bit too exaggerated. I'm not sure if he was ever supposed to be suffering so much from that...
