    I want Tails to get a super form in this release of Sonic 2. Always sucked that Sonic could go super in the original but Tails couldn't. He got a super form in Mania so he should get one in Origins' Sonic 2 as a reward for collecting the emeralds.

    Tails should also be given a super form for collecting the chaos emeralds in this release of 3K, and then a hyper form (along with his flicky army of death) for collecting the super emeralds.

    I'd rather the flicky army of death be kept with the hyper form. I like it as his "hyper modification", so to speak.

  4. Yeah I like that 3 AIR added that as an option to have a super and hyper Tails.. I’m in agreement that it should be modified as an extra feature in Origins

    Can't remember if I mentioned it already, but since we're talking about things we want, Knuckles & Tails mode needs to be a thing in every game they are in separately.

    I actually disagree with this for Sonic 3; there was something really special about the initial disappointment of Tails not having a 7 emerald form turning into elation and surprise when finally obtaining the flicky army of death. Maybe it's nostalgia, but it feels like such a great reward for sticking it out until you got all 14. Not having it in Sonic 2 is a tougher argument, but having Tails being able to fly (edit: this ability was added to the Tax/Stealth ports right?) already kind of balances any advantage Sonic has by being able to become Super Sonic.

    This would probably break S3&K, since it would effectively remove Knuckles' jump handicap, right? Even without that as an issue however, I'm not sure I'm a big fan of the Knuckles & Tails combination in terms of the characters themselves. Tails is Sonic's sidekick, but he isn't a general support character for everyone.

    A 1.5 player that actually inhibits player 1 would be hilarious. Like NSMB where throwing your partners into a pit is part of the metagame. An anti-co-op mode could be kinda fun.

    I wanna say that the S2 Special Stages were the original "screw over your partner" gameplay, so much so that it would often happen even when you were playing entirely by yourself.

    Fatherhood, husband...hood and a few mobile apps.
    I say if we're gonna start pairing Tails with Knux, then just give the player option to pair up any character together; Sonic & Tails, Sonic & Knuckles, Knuckles & Tails etc. of course with option to decide who leads and who is the 'sidekick'. Now comes the question..."but what would be the benefit of such a feature, unless each pairing comes with special ways in which the sidekick can assist the leader?" Well...exactly that. But I know Hell will freeze over* before we'd see anything like this in any S3&K re-releases, but hey.

    *Technically it did freeze over, back around March. Hell, MICHIGAN, that is.

    I was under the impression that Tails was given the ability to fly first and foremost because it meant he could sensibly fly in from wherever once he was "lost". Can't do that with many other characters beside him, aside from Ray.

    While I think we can rest easy knowing that the essential golden era has been as "future proofed" as they ever could, I don't think Origins is complete without the Traveller's Tales games. As "jank" as they plainly are they are still a product of most (all?) of Sonic's co-creators. That isn't something that the other adjunct games (ie., arcade, Game Gear, Pico, etc.) have going for them, besides Ohshima approving/refining new characters iirc.

    Sonic R also would be greatly improved from an increased framerate, the utilization of the prototype(/promotional art?) character models, and the option for ray tracing. Knuckles' Chaotix would need something more labor intensive to make it not an interesting experiment stretched over a bloated expanse of barren levels.

    Besides, there are plenty of Sega-owned non-Sonic properties I'd prefer remastered over Chaotix, such as Ristar or Astal.

    I mean, that's kinda how I imagined Sonic 4 would be as a kid. Not full-on "anyone paired with anyone", but I did imagine that in addition to Sonic & Tails, it would have Knuckles & Tails and Sonic & Knuckles. Like Advance 3, I imagined Sonic could ride on Knuckles' back when gliding, but unlike Advance 3, I also imagined he could hang onto Knuckles' back while climbing as well.

    Back in the day I used to imagine Sonic 4 with Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Shadow, because the number of each game corresponds to how many playable characters they have.

    Ironically, if Sonic Mania was Sonic 5 it does have 5 characters in it thanks to Plus.

    Well when I imagined Sonic 4, Shadow wasn't a thing yet. I later wanted to try to fit him in, but I wasn't sure how to differentiate him from Sonic. I imagined him having access to his own routes like Knuckles, and wasn't sure how to justify it with Chaos powers.
